Another Safe Explosion That Is Different Than Chernobyl

I know I'm supposed to feel better that these reactors don't have graphite control rods. So if they meltdown and spew radioactive steam high into the atmosphere, the disaster will have a different style than Chernobyl. And Different = Safer.

As it is, those reactors are being cooled with seawater mixed with boron. Take a guess where the highly radioactive waste water is being discharge. I hope the Japanese can learn to eat something other than seafood, and rice...

Those reactors are OLD! Yeah, nothing could possibly go wrong.

Get happy, oil is down to only $100/bbl on fundamental demand/supply free market principles. [/sarcasm]

From the AP:

Tokyo Electric Power Co., which operates the plant, said radiation levels at Unit 3 were well under the levels where a nuclear operator must file a report to the government...

Yeah, fundamentals... That's what the talking bobble heads are saying.

The car salesman left me a long apologetic voice mail message, after I responded to the owner about my experience...

I don't know why the TV was set on CNBC when I woke up at 6 a.m. today -- probably Mrs. Bukko was watching Bobble-vision for news Sunday night. Between that and Bloomberg (CNN was running some shlockudrama about murders in Mexico) there's not much current events during that time.

So when I flipped it on, the old guy (not Kudlow, but the other geezer who's regularly ridiculed on econoblogs) was spouting furiously about how it's UNFAIR that GE's stock was down (it was off by about 0.45%, big woo) just because it was the one that built the Japanuke plants. "That was 40 years ago!" he whined. "If you bought a car 40 years ago and it was having mechanical problems now, you wouldn't blame Ford or GM."

Farking things are melting down and spewing radioactivity, and this guy is cheesed that it's hurting GE stock. How can he manage to make a sound when his head is so far up his azz?

That's all those bastards care about Bukko. Soulless, pathetic wretches.
