Oh, and what I don't get is why can't they aim the rocket towards one of their allies such as China? Am I missing something here about physics/rotation of the earth, but it seems like they should be able to tilt it and launch it away from SK/Japan? Problem solved, everyone happy.

Did anyone stop to think that it would be really awkward to be in the middle of NK as a Japanese delegate if Japan or the US did decide to blow up the rocket midair....

Govt should take over the company spin off the non-nuclear sectors to recover small part of investment, if corporate bond holders want a claim of the pie, their welcome to it as long as they want to take liability for their portion of the clean up the nuclear waste (so basically nothing so sad but go invest in Greek Debt). Anyone on the board down can keep their salary as long as they stay but any perks or benefits will only be limited to maybe 5-10 yrs down the road if this problem is settled (let's face it, they might not be the best but do you know anything about nuclear power plants?) , shut down a wider area around the reactors for a ban on agriculture and spend as much money as necessary to get the reactors under control. This will kill the Japanese economy if it gets any worse. Can you imagine what nuclear meltdown/any reactor going critical could do the economy? Spend whatever it takes because it will be worth it in the long run.

More likely carbon monoxide poisoning from using their kerosene heater during the winter.

How well was the public informed about the meeting and what time was the meeting? Probably posted it in a couple places and set the meeting for the middle of the day when people can't just skip out of work.

If you look at previous article, TEPCO tried to clean up the waste through a filtration system. It ran for about an hour before the filters filled up with radiation and had to be stopped. I guess they undercalculated the level of radiation. I don't know if they fixed or improved the filtration system since then. That was about 3 months ago I read about it.

It's ~$150k USD, Yaks wouldn't waste the time to of waiting over 6 months and they've much easier ways (snack bars) to laundry such a small amount. This was just some very upstanding citizens that didn't give in to temptation. I wish I could say the same if I found a bag like that, but not likely...
