Yeah... The Magical Reprocessing Fairy never poops.

Everyone knows you can just shovel waste from one existing reactor design into a reactor design that looks great on paper but has never actually been built as if it was coal clinkers.

It will automagically be the right geometry and composition for the new fuel rods, and you won't have to dissolve it in fluoric acid, refine it, re-create new pellets and deal with the millions of gallons of hot processing waste.

High level fuel waste is expensive to store,(for US taxpayers but not utilities) but it's the least of our problems. France has made it a matter of national pride that they've been reprocessing for 40 years.

How far have they gotten in 40 years? They sell the useful stuff to Japan and pay Russia to store millions of Kg of waste in a Siberian ghost town. They're also looking to build their own "Yucca Mountain" style high-level dump.

UberDave: brap: I didn't read the article but its inherent logic has convinced me to take up Pooh Sculpting.

You should try Tigger sculpting instead.

But the wonderful thing about Tiggers is that he's the only one.  When you really think about it, multiple Tiggers would ruin that magic.
