O/T: One Down

Page 7 of 14  


If it has a half-life of 713M years, we don't need to do anything with it. It's not at all dangerous. It's the short-lived isotopes that will kill. Danger from radioactivity is (more or less) inversely proportional to half-life.

For half the cost of sending it into the sun, it could be sent into an escape trajectory. Look how much money the Demonicrats could save!

Blame the Demonicrats.

They'd just make kid's toys for McDonalds out of it and send it back.

It's my understanding that digital controls specifically not allowed.

Unions.
They were dead in the US *long* before Chernobyl, and they're not dead anywhere else, so that's a red herring.

How about the decommissioning of Shoreham. There was another government boondoggle. Let it go hot, generate zero power, then pay billion$ to shut it down.

Not going to happen.

Shorter half-life == hotter. There are all sorts of *good* alternatives, but the better the alternative the more politically incorrect it is. The problem isn't energy, it's politics.

...and only a small part of the problem. Coal plants put out a few thousand times the radioactivity into the environment than a nuke plant does.

Of course not, it comes by truck.
I've heard various figures that range from we are approaching the limit to we can double population easily. I don't have any idea myself, but the problem is not so much resources, but the location of them. We have plenty of water, just not in the places we need it. I think we'd be at least somewhat self limiting though as either war over food or some natural catastrophe would severely cut back the population.

Something will limit the population. There's no question of that. Personally I'd rather it be people voluntarily taking pills than involuntarily having nukes dropped on their heads.

Yep. But Canadians can pay much more for generic drugs. It averages out. For example, one generic I take costs $8.00. It's available at a Canadian pharmacy for $286.00.

Maybe. But greed is good. The results of greed are better.
But the best is to vanquish your enemies and hear the lamentations of their women.

I think I'd find a new pharmacy. There is absolutely no reasonable excuse for that short of gouging to make up for losses elsewhere or perhaps the patent hasn't expired in CA yet. Sounds like a fluke as most of the popular patented drugs I researched were considerably cheaper. Maybe they priced out the creator's pills instead of generic. Since you did not identify the drug, it's all conjecture as to why.

Bettering yourself and your station is life is good, abject greed not so much if it harms those who can ill afford it - that is predatory.

I'd rather not hear their lamentations, but if they can cook...

Heh. With respect, Ed, you have no idea. I am about as socialistic as Ghegis Khan. I'm a free enterprise man. I am a union hating conservative voter, suspicious of and opposed to government control (read interference,) in most things. Attempting to describe my political outlook from what I wrote amounts to blind, arrogant stupidity on your part. (If that sounds a little strong to you, I do admit to, but refuse to apologise for, an aggressive personality.)
Admitting that that in spite of my political leanings, something that I was vehemently opposed to and was sure would be an unworkable disaster actually worked reasonably well (and could work better, I have no doubt,) doesn't make me a socialist. Just smart enough to admit I'm not always right.
My greatest regret in recent years has been the defeat of the Howard government. Had he been returned, I am convinced he would have continued to make all spheres of public spending leaner and meaner. The current socialist government seems hell bent on throwing public money around and spending their inheritance from the Howard/Costello years.

Yes indeed. It will be interesting to see what transpires.

OK, let me take another guess. You have no sense of humor either. If you can't take a little ribbing on USENET, you are rather thin skinned.

Heh. There are certainly those who would agree with that assessment. My wife for one. But then, the only opinion that really matters is mine, when it's all said and done. ; )

Truth! There's a saying in AA which goes "What you think of me is none of my business." I like it.
So, what state do you live in down there, other than "of denial"? You a sandgroper, a Taswegian, a banana bender, or what?

A proud Sandgroper, eh? Will wonders never cease. <gd&r>
Say "Hullo" to Phully Laird for me if you get through Nannup. Damn, it's been 7 years now...I wonder if he'll remember me...if the grog ain't got him yet. He slid down from Perth a while back.
Well, he looks to be alive, anywho. Egad, tell him he needs a new web guy. 256 color gifs, EEK! http://www.nannupfurnituregallery.com.au /

Ten foot tall and bulletproof, too : )

Nannup, - that would make a nice leisurely weekend bike run. Haven't been down that way for many years. ....... got me thinking, summertime, not too hot yet ....... hmmm. I'll be sure to let you know if I make the run.

Noticed your IMG_3416 router jig there. Reminds me of a similar jig except the two top pieces swivel and the jig is used for cutting perfectly sized long dados in a board. The dado you have there appears to be for cutting slots up to 4" wide. I was thinking about combining the two jigs.
As long of course, I'm reading the image properly.
