It's Sunday morning and there's nothing on TV. So I'm watching E! Kim Kardashian is about to expose herself to X-rays in order to prove that she doesn't have implants in her buttocks. Not that an X-ray would prove that. Horrible family.
One of the Kardashian girls already had skin cancer. You'd think they'd be more sensitive to the dangers of radiation. In this case, there's no medical purpose.
They start by X raying one of the others, Kourtney. They want to see what her breast implants look like in an X ray so they'll know what to look for on Kim's X-ray. If you've endured the medical risk of breast implant surgery, what's a little X-ray? What possible harm could come from bombarding your breasts with radiation?
This isn't the 1950s. There was a time when they had X ray machines in shoe stores. You'd put try on shoes then look at X rays of your feet to see if they fit properly. In the early '50s there were thousands of these things in shoe stores all over the country. Even in 1950, they realized it was dangerous. The machines were poorly maintained and leaked radiation. They were also designed so radiation hit you in the testicles and ovaries while you were looking at your feet. Who knows how many birth defects they caused.
By 1970, shoe store X-ray machines were either directly banned or effectively banned by strict regulations in every state, but there was one still illegally operating in a shoe store in West Virginia in 1981. It's pictured above.
Well. I guess it doesn't matter. It's only Kim Kardashian. What the hell. X ray her some more.
Next episode - their mother pressures one of them to marry an alcoholic
They all have these horrible boyfriends. One of them is an unwed mother and their pimp of a mother, Kris Jenner, wants her to marry her repellent bourgeois alcoholic boyfriend because it's what God wants. (She actually said that.)
Again, she may as well.
