Radioactive in the air, Kaunas

When I checked yesterday, the plane was fully booked. As I am sitting inside the jet to Lithuania, there are empty seats!
I was the last person to go onboard and yet I got a window seat! Amazing. Maybe 5 per cent are unoccupied.
For fun I took me Geiger-counter and when I switched it on, it was beeping like crazy. At first I thought it had been broken inside my rucksack, but it rebooted normally and now shows 2.62 microsievert per hour. At home it showed 0.12 mostly. There are 25 times more radioactive particles (gamma rays) being measured. Maybe the Sun is particularly active right now (14h41 central european summer time on 19aug10)???
StumbleUpon PLEASE give it a thumbs up Stumble It!
