The depiction of Homer Simpson's job on the show is the most accurate one I've seen.

According to The Simpsons, nuclear power is idiot-proof.

Chernobyl and Three Mile Island have also added to negative publicity surrounding nuclear power.

He has a point considering the average joe learns of the world through watching TV. The ability for someone like Sarah Palin to get as far as she did is clear evidence of that.

ne2d: ya think?

Chernobyl was the pinnacle of taking a fairly safe technology and removing just about every safety control in order to make it cheap, then showing a bunch of Soviet monkeys behind the controls.

I wouldn't have expected anything less from them.

Judging nuclear power on the failure at Chernobyl is like judging air travel by 9/11.

That's alright. When I used to do internet radio, we had web-based 24/7 IRC chat room app for people to talk in. I once trolled my friend on it pretending to be a female fan hitting on him, and he trolled back pretending to be me...

You know how you place two mirrors in front of each other, and they form an infinite mirror tunnel? It was like that in the sense that my mind got stuck in an infinite loop... Here I was trolling someone who was pretending to be me, and was then trying to hit on myself...

I think it's dead on. Nuclear power COULD be a boon or a terror depending on how they are run. The thought of any company run like those I've worked for running a nuclear power plant terrifies me. I've met a LOT of Homer Simpsons (many with degrees).

I think it would be safest to forbid companies running nuclear power plants from going public. That way they would be less inclined to 'boost profits' by hiring losers or short hiring. I would want to make sure that they are focused solely on those plants.

Oh, I'm sure the NIMBYs against nuclear power are concerned because of Homer Simpson. It couldn't possibly have anything to do with 3 mile Island or Chernobyl.
