there has never been a problem with a reactor built after 1980. we need to decouple from the prohibitively expensive regulation forced on the nuclear industry.

this should have been done 10 years ago! let's get moving and ignore the fear mongerers.

There needs to be an age cut off for driving.

you’ll change your tune when you’re elderly. Anyway, by then we will all have full self driving and zero deaths per year.

I had to deal with an elderly driver in a parking lot today. Part of his problem was that he was driving the boat-car favored by his generation. Three full minutes of watching him extract himself from his parking space. Grateful for the idle-stop feature on my car.
