    Thank you for trying to reasure me drewster. However I am blessed (or cursed depending on your point of view) with being a skeptic,
    and as always there are alternative points of view as is the case with these guys here,

  • @3 fubar,
    Not fogetting the terrible natural disaster, just remembering the terrible (potentially) man made aftermath. Pacific Pink Salmon for tea?
    I have a can in the cupboard, I like to make fishcakes with it, nice with tomato sauce, hope it was caught and canned pre Fukushima though.

  • On second thought, it’s not potentially.

  • What has Le Crunch been telling you guys about storing food.

    Not only would you have saved money, you would also be emanating a genuinely radiant smile.

    It’s ok, I’m not fishing for compliments.

  • Hang on. Are they seriously saying that radiation has travelled across the Pacific Sea from Japan to the US?

    That’s like saying my farts in London are causing acid rain in Siberia. Oh. They’re Americans.

    The TSA body scanners are taking care of that and people deny there is a depopulation/dehumanisation agenda in operation.

    Their just warming their hands up so to speak. They don’t need the useless eaters, so let’s ‘slave’ the planet and have done with them.

    Hell, throw in a few wars too and kill several birds with one clean drone. Let’s not mention sodium flouride creeping into everything.

    One needs to stay on the ball to see the bull. Know the agendas and you will be born ready.

    Good one tnc, there seems to be a lot of complacency regarding the nuclear issue, salute to the skeptics on the Fukushima thread in
    the forums, at 316 pages when I last looked. Seems funny that some posters there seemed to continue to argue the safety of nuclear power as the situation at Fukushima continued to deteriorate. Almost remenisent of the bullish BTLers etc, that used to post here.

  • No human activity is 100% safe. Last year’s Deepwater Horizon oil spill killed 11 people. In the USA alone there are over 100 deaths per year in the oil & gas drilling industry. Globally, coalmine deaths are so common that they largely go unreported.

    The big difference with nuclear is that it has the potential to affect many more people than just those who work in the industry. But we have to offset that against the many benefits of cheap reliable electricity. Nothing is entirely safe; it’s about cost/benefit analysis.

    I wonder why I have been banging on about food shortages.

    There are no such things as conspiracies.

    Bringing coal into the house from the coal shed brings back fond memories.
