Acute radiation poisoning happens when one is exposed to high amounts of ionizing radiation. 
But there is a period of time where the person seems very healthy. This can last for hours or even days. Shortly after, they die immediately. Hence the term “walking ghost”
Why does this happen? 
This is because what radiation poisoning does is it destroys the bone marrow. The bone marrow produces a lot of blood cells, so new blood cells can’t be made anymore.
However, the the blood cells that are already present in the body continues to circulate around and temporally work until they are “used up”
A similar effect happens in the intestinal tract.

  • The US Government: If people want to make a living, they'll just have to work 16+ hours a day
  • The US Government: And if their kids end up disenfranchised because of a lack of parental involvement, well that's not our problem
  • The US Government: In fact, what is our problem is creating a system that will funnel these disenfranchised youth into our prison system so they can work for corporations (that promise us money) for damn near free
  • The US Government: If they don't want to fall victim to this system, then they can seek higher education
  • The US Government: Except such an education will be inaccessible to most disenfranchised people and skewed in favor of the financially stable and white people
  • The US Government: And we're not going to make intervention programs like sex education and conflict resolution federally mandatory, because that's the parent's job
  • The US Government: The parent who is working 16 hours a day
