  • I'm not at all "anti-nuclear." There are some terrific thorium reactor designs. I'm anti- obsolete and decrepit technology.

  • Yawn. Just another factless, lying lair piece about nuclear power and about Fukushima. A dime a dozen among the unfathomably untruthful anti-nuclear contingent. I debunk nuclear lies as hobby. I'm the terminator. I never get tired of it. I never stop. I never will give up. But this collection of BS has me stumped. I have no idea where to begin.

  • Three nuclear reactor cores have melted down entirely, and no one knows exactly where they are. Maybe they found there way to the earth's centre and got absorbed by the inner core's melting temparature 5400 °C. Earth's core mainly made of iron and nickel also contains uranium-238, thorium-232 and potassium-40, which have half-lives of 4.47 billion years, 14.05 billion years and 1.25 billion years respectively. SORRY I AM ONLY MAKING A SARCASTIC REMARK... In reality, under a complete loss of coolant scenario, the fast erosion phase of the concrete basement lasts for about an hour and progresses into about one meter depth, then slows to several centimetres per hour, and stops completely when the corium melt cools below the decomposition temperature of concrete (about 1100 °C). Complete melt-through can occur in several days, even through several meters of concrete; the corium then penetrates several meters into the underlying soil, spreads around, cools, and solidifies. On reaching ground water, there will be contamination but this can be contained. Nuclear reactors can't blow up like as the result of a chain reaction like an atom bomb because the enrichment of the fuel is FAR below weapons grade. The conditions for an atomic explosion are actually very specific and difficult to create. The real danger at Fukushima is that the fuel bundles will be exposed to air and start to burn. You could still have pockets of hydrogen gas that could blow things apart, but the concern here is a nuclear fire that just releases radioactive particles into the air.

  • You make some points, but in the end you don't address the issue at hand: why only 25% of women identify as feminists. You say "we" need feminism, but 75% of women don't want the association, which has become a stigma. What a disaster feminist leaders have produced with those numbers. So I can't see this as a response to what I wrote.You mention Everyday Feminism, which to people on the outside reads almost as pure parody. There's a huge disconnect between the handful of people who take that publication seriously and those to whom it offers little more than laughs. That gap is widened even more when Linda Sarsour is allowed to come in an co-opt feminism to serve her own religious agenda. If she's considered a feminist then women are even less inclined towards the movement. What you're left with is a bunch of hardcore intersectionalist activists who most people can't relate to in any way. It's a movement aimed at serving itself at this point. The issues identified as pressing aren't seen as such by the vast majority.

  • I haven't seen this movie (I saw the one with John Hurt), and I see the rat as a MacGuffin. I also saw the lack of visible bloodshed as a the Party manipulates the people. By maintaining a persistent state of war, but keeping the violence offstage, the Party plays to their emotions.

  • Beautiful! Oddly reminiscent of Shirley Jackson at her peak.
