"Well We're not doing that any more."

I should say not.


Yes I am still alive.

Yes I intend to start blogging again soon.

No it will not be as much as when I started.

All that said this is cool.

Nuclear Safety in Japan


Oh my!!!

I might be calling this one a bit early because the news is just coming out but I suspect that this will be much ado about nothing.

From what I have read so far there was almost a gallon of water and it was contained in the containment building. No release of fission products.

So there is a 6.8 magnitude quake that left 3 foot fissures and the nuke plant only had a small leak that was contained.

I would call this a success in engineering. If this had been a gasoline or heaven forbid a LNG storage facility the result would almost certainly be worse.


Oh this is priceless

"Aileen Mioko Smith, of the environmentalist group Green Action, said the fire showed that some facilities at nuclear power plants such as electrical transformers were built to lower quake-resistance levels than other equipment such as reactor cores."

Duh - You think they might want to give higher priority to the safety of the reactor core maybe?? Sheesh presenting ggod engineering as a problem.

I know most of you probably feel like this some (or most) of the time.

Twelve eggs in the air
Six hidden rotten and fake
Three Ostrich
Three Robin
Three Chicken
Two Fabergie
One viable Dodo Bird
Just wanna set the rotten ones down
Which ones are they?

No it is not a puzzle just a crappy poem.
