One thing is true. Anyone who spent anytime near enough to a radioactive forest to actually see it glow would be dead within hours. Also a forest radioactive enough to glow would be a completely dead forest and not a forest at all.



Anyhow I'm in serious need of a new Speed Triple. Anyone can donate $ to me anytime.

True or not, it makes for a fascinating and chilling read. That said, I'll pass on buying someone a new motor. Perhaps she should ride an old Russian bike and pick up spare parts on her Chernobyl treks... seeing as they're just sitting their rusting waiting for their half-life to end.

Well if it was on the Internet, it must be true.

she did some pretty cool digs at old battle sites too. I believe her myself, though I won't be sending any money...

Maybe i'll send her this old Bultaco Lobito that's been sitting in the backyard with weeds growing throught it...word is it's impervious to the effects of radiaiton. Like a roach.

"I'm also a believer in anything with a higher percent chance of occurence > 0 will inevitably(sp?) happen."



Well that isn't true. There is a finite chance of anything happening. Including you changing in a giant bar of chocolate. Quantum physics is strange stuff. It is just that the odds of it are so great that it will probably never happen in the lifetime of the universe.



The waste from reactors is a problem. BTW the US doesn't ship it to Russia. Right now it is stored at the reactor sites. There are many options that they are looking at to get ride of it. It is possible that it can be recycled, or "burned" or if necessary buried for long term storage. The last option is my least favorite but the simplest.



I never said that it was fool proof. Just not worthy of the amount of worry you seemed to have over it. US reactors just can not go kaboom like the Russian design did. And unlike the Russian reactors we put ours in containment buildings.

If I was you I would sleep soundly. You are about 10 million times more likely to die on your bike than by a reactor accident.

Do a Google search on "pebble bed reactors". Absolutely 0 chance of meltdown and relatively terrorist-proof.



Nuclear power is our friend.
