    Burning to the center of the earth. Hahahahahahahahahahahaha.

    I was going to attempt to explain to you about how being "radioactive" is not inherently dangerous, but then I read that.

    You are radioactive. Right now. No, literally. You radiate.

    Re: Fukushima plant crisis could erupt

    Three of the reactors have melted fuel rods, meltdown! The melted rods settled to the bottom of the reactor core and start eating through the super stainless reactor vessel, quickly. If they don't keep the water flowing they will eat throught the reactor vessels. Then through the concrete containment vessel, all happening at this feared super high temperatures. These temps boil water away quickly, so that is the big demand for water. After the concrete, it just eats through the earth, much easier. As for that short term radioactivity, when the fish eat something in the area they are irradiated. When caught, there is a measurable increase in the fish radioactivity. Ergo, no doubt, the law will be changed by Corporate to allow more radioactive fish.

    When are people gonna get over this, man? It's done. It wasn't even that significant. In terms of damage and human suffering, it's completely eclipsed by the tsunami itself. But since it includes the dirty N-word, everyone is still freaking out.

    The very worst case possible is Chernobyl, and there's essentially no way there could be a repeat of that. It was a combination of terrible safety standards, poor training, idiocy, and sheer bad luck.

    You do realize that the center of the Earth is just about the safest possible place you could put radioactive waste, right? Did you think it was gonna blow up the planet or something? This isn't Dune.

    The dumps from other sources was by far worse than this. Those dumps are just ignored completely because of hype about how horrible the nuclear disaster was.

    They were experimenting on the reactors, and built the plant like a pile of sticks.

    I doubt it. The Fukushima has been very much exaggerated, very much typical of the pundits and the media. Only 3 people died from the radiation (they all died because they were workers trying the fix the plant when the disaster happened), and there are no nuclear disaster. Every second, every day, every week, every month that passes, people realize that Fukushima is just another overblown, exaggerated story by the media.
