bborchar: If only there were some site in the middle of nowhere that nuclear waste could be stored safely and without any fear of contaminating anything...

Portland metro area is down river.

So you're right, nothing of value will be contaminated.

Do you believe in societal intelligence? Ever see a mob after a victory. Mob mentality, right? Many individuals have the intelligence to manage nuclear. I see their rantings on Fark about how modern nuclear is safe. But individuals don't manage the industry. Society and government does. And as a society, we are still morons. Thats why people with wisdom in government should be outlawing this technology. Would you give a 5 year old a gun, even though they insist that they will handle it with care? Thats the same as giving our society nuclear energy.  Its just an accident waiting to happen.

In the meantime, if we could get some of you to go roll around in it a bit, the boys in the lab feel there is perhaps as high as a 5% chance one of you would develop a non-lethal, beneficial form of cancer. Such a cancer would be unheard of to science and could potentially...What's that? OK, I'm being told that it wouldn't be "non-lethal", it would be "super-lethal". Apparently your extremities would start falling off within minutes. Still, that would be fascinating too, wouldn't it?
