"You're a poo-poo head!"..."No, you're a poo-poo head" - Sticky for handbag swinging

Meine Güte aber auch! Die Art und Weise, wie du bereit bist, dich derart an ARRSE zu verkaufen, nur um damit zu posaunen, dass du von einem britishen militärishen Webseite angenommen worden bist, lässt wirklich fragen lassen, ob du alle Latten im Zaun hast, Alter. Das nunmal nebebei.

“But my goodness too! The way you're willing to sell yourself like that to ARRSE just to trumpet that you've been accepted by a British military website really makes one wonder if you've got the hang of it, dude. That incidentally.”

Mind, it explains how the Grand Tour adventure through Pripyat didn't bother the hi-viz and clipboard brigade overly, I s'pose.

They must have been bullshitting with the Geiger clicks sound effects, the little fibbers.

Oh, just like Bugsy!!

It's how Bogsy would have wanted it....

Not necessarily, a Geiger-Muller tube will produce a steady stream of clicks anywhere due to background radiation. Wave a banana near one and there's a noticeable increase in activity.

Like a demented, over-sped football rattle...?

They do take you to one quite innocent looking spot where it starts to fire up a bit, and there was another stretch on the road where it started to flicker a tad. But at the end of it I think we’d had something like 5 times the normal daily dose.
 
You mean the engineer supervising the test, Dyatlov, or the ambitious plant director, Bryukhanov? Dyatlov got sent to a labour camp for a ten stretch but died from the effects of radiation exposure before his sentence was up (no bad thing, some might say) - although he was released to die "on the out" when his health nose-dived. Bryukhanov also got ten years in a labour camp but is still alive.

Dyatlov was an arrogant prick who threatened to have anyone who questioned his orders during the test fired when things started to go wrong and the underlings had a better idea of what was happening than he did. The Soviet imperative took over and they bowed to his authority. The rest is history. Bryukhanov was Director of Construction before becoming plant director but, to be fair, the State kept hidden from him and his staff the known flaws in the RBMK design that rendered the belated attempt to SCRAM the reactor in the face of Dyatlov's ranting a moot point.
RBMK is mentioned in your post, thought was familiar and it was, it's a common poster on this thread and they are a recent (12 June 2020) user on ARRSE. Am calling sock-puppet on @RBMK.

Nowhere near that fast. Background near me (not a radon area or near various power plants) is roughly 1 click every 2 seconds and a banana will double that.

Bringing one of our tiny 'safe' and fairly old beta sources nearby does cause the football rattle effect though. I wouldn't be surprised if parts of the exclusion zone cause a similar effect.

Das nunmal nur mal nebebei. nebenbei."

For the benefit of the non-german speakers that want to have a good laugh: "Goodness gracious! The way you're willing to sell yourself to ARRSE like this just to trumpet that you've been accepted by a British military website really makes you wonder if you've got all the bars in the fence, dude. That's beside the point."

Maybe you should go back to your Desert Eagle, your 9 Pence per gramme dealing or advertising socialism in it's pure, unsullied and innocent form.
