Meet Tsutomu Yamaguchi:


The only person officially recognized as a survivor of both the Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bombings at the end of World War II died January 4 at age 93. Yamaguchi was in Hiroshima on a business trip on August 6, 1945, when a U.S. B-29 dropped an atomic bomb on the city. He suffered serious burns to his upper body and spent the night in the city. He then returned to his hometown of Nagasaki, which suffered a second U.S. atomic bomb attack three days later.


So we nuked the guy TWICE and then he lives another 65 years! Ya gotta love this guy! Hats off to ya, Tsutomu! You done good!:)

The radiation killed off all the cancer he would have normally gotten.
