[ RadSafe ] 26 April -- 28 years ago, Chernobyl

Something that has struck me about many of the pictures I have seen from the exclusion zone is that many of the rooms shown have been looted.  I can imagine that over 28 years with no maintenance some windows would break, roofs leak, and buildings deteriorate.  Maybe even whole banks of windows would break, letting in the weather.  But the furniture wouldn't evaporate.  The books and toys wouldn't spontaneously dump themselves in a pile in the corner.  

If someone told me that organized crime has systematically stripped the area of everything of value that isn't nailed down, and that bribed officials let it happen I would find that less surprising than if this profit center was ignored.
