Opinari - Latin term for Opinion. Opinari.net is just what it seems: a cornucopia of rants, raves and poignant soliloquy.

This is an interesting tour of one of the world's most notorious ecological disasters, Chernobyl. The young lady who created this website documents her trip into "Ghosttown", and shows us, with vivid photographic detail, the remnants of the region.

I have always found it interesting that Chernobyl, in Ukranian, means "wormwood". For those of you who may be students of Biblical eschatology, see Revelation 8:11 (NKJV):

And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.

I remember Chernobyl very well. When the disaster occured, the Soviets weren't willing to share pictures like these. The true magnitude of the Chernobyl incident will never be seen by the outside world, but rest assured, the Ukranian people will never forget it.
