Not to detract from the severity of the disaster in Japanposted by The Vidiot @ 8:39 PM Permalink But am I the only one to notice that when they talk about the Fukushima nuclear power plant, and they talk about the reactors, they're referred to as FUK-1 and FUK-2, etc.?
So, apparently, WE'RE FUKKED.
I dunno, has to be a message in there for us somewhere.
Shouldn't we, as a species, be reevaluating our dependence on a technology that can kill vast swathes of people and land in a microsecond if things go terribly wrong? The Germans have started to question it. Shouldn't we?
TENS of thousands of activists have protested against Germany's plans to prolong its dependency on nuclear power, as an explosion at a quake-hit plant in Japan fuelled fears of a meltdown.
