It is not only tritium that remains in the radioactive soup.

That this govt has not, will not invest in renewables is a disgrace and an unwarranted tax on a population that is getting relatively poorer every single day. That Okinawa isn't solar powered? HSIT.

As the tank, these vast floating projections of power are becoming obsolete, they will be pushed further and further out into the deep blue as potential adversaries continue to develop hypersonic aircraft carrier killing missiles. The Nimitz class, for example, are incredible machines, but the sun is setting on their dominance.

Japan being Japan, well, the manual is still opened and followed and all that red tape reels off into the distance not occupied by any more than 20 Ukrainians. So generous!

What could possible go wrong. Stope using Uranium as a fuel, that'd be a good start. Thorium a much better option.

Provide these people with the assistance they need! It is called society. The single mother couldn't secure two months pay while she helped settle her son into day care, yet politicians spend HOW much on themselves?

Posted in: China Eastern plane with 132 aboard crashes in southern province See in context

There's footage of the aircraft. It is dropping vertically, as the recorded flight path shows. It seems to be in tact, so, other than a total decompression due to a catastrophic failure of a loading door -- I can't see how it would be a bomb as the footage shows the place, not debris -- then deliberate?

Please do be aware the footage shows the aircraft crashing:

What an absolute senseless waste of life. Captured Russian soldiers repeatedly keep revealing their horror that they were seemingly tricked. Let's hope the Russian Military STOPS. Then finds Putin.

Posted in: Ruble plunges 26%, stocks sink as West tightens Russia sanctions See in context

This is going to feed into his understanding of reality (paranoia), that the west is "out to get Russia", also that the war is on going and though he is not losing, as he tanks get taken out, he is not winning -- his tanks are redundant on modern battlefields. Russia should have watched the recent 2020 Nagorno-Karabakh war. Whenever Russia begins to lose, look how they win: Chechnya, Syria... Terrifying possibilities, war loses itself in chaos, no one knows how it will turn out, so, someone, relieve Putin of his power, by whatever means.

Tortoise: "The reactors survived the quake. It was the tsunami that did them in."

Not true, the radiation meters on the fences 1km from the plant were going off before the tsunami hit.

Melt throughs, not downs and corium masses in suspension. An absolute nightmare. Every time it evokes March 12 when everything changed at Dai Ichi compass in hand checking the prevailing winds...

C ya.


"People say that the Japanese made a holocaust but that is not true. It is a story made up by the Chinese. It has tarnished the image of Japan, but it is a lie."

"Japanese's identity is greed. We should avail of this tsunami to wash away this greed. I think this is a divine punishment."

Always causing division. We don't need people like that.

Posted in: If you could go back in a time machine to observe any three events in history, which three would you choose? See in context

The question asks, “…in history”, not time. So, no going to a point that is prehistoric AKA prehistory. Personally, Trial of Socrates, Fall of Constantinople, and Krakatoa.
