    Double A-bomb survivior passes away

    Double atomic bomb survivor dies in Japan - Asia-Pacific - msnbc.com

    Was on a trip to Hiroshima when it got bombed, returned to his hometown of Nagasaki in time for it to get hit.

    Still lived to 93. No mention if he suffered any long term effects.

    But wow !! What has to be going through your head on August 10th, 1945?

    They don't even mention his tentacles or super vision, poorly written article.

    I think we are all just to assume that's how he lived so long.

    Not exactly if he developed it 6 months ago. If he's been fighting it for 40 years, then maybe.

    I'm no doc, but I think stomach cancer has a pretty quick effect.

    If it's accurate, I think he had some longterm effects...

    I believe I saw something on him a year or 2 ago on tv, documentary type thing.

    If that is a long-term effect, sign me up! Many, many people die from cancer much younger than 93!
