lifeboat: Yes. Yes it is.

Just going to relax. Thank goodness my Christmas shopping's done. I'm looking forward to a little peace and quiet. What about you?

I have to finish up the Christmas shopping and get a haircut. But then I'm just going to chill. Maybe watch some movies, if any good ones are on.

When I was in high school, I used this journal as a primary source when doing a paper on "Nuclear Weapon Basing Options". It provided CEP's on the accuracy of various US and Soviet weapons systems, the formulas to use based on weapon size and CEP, to calculate how many weapons had to be dedicated to taking out the other sides missiles on a first strike.

It was pretty cool.

Later I was a nuclear power operator in the Navy.

After I got out of the Navy, in 1990, and I started listening to the Nuclear debate, that the Scientists and Engineers who work in the Nuclear Industry, have spent so much of their careers being limited by National Security Regulations, that they don't say very much. The line between what they were allowed to say, and what they were not allowed to say was so narrow, it wasn't worth the risk. So the only information out there was being put out by the Anti-nuclear crowd.

Over the past 20 years, they have done a better job of combating the misinformation out there, but the culture of not being able to say anything, permeates the industry still. Making it easier to find out about people's fears, but little about what is being done to solve the issues.
