yeah you don't want to draw too much attention to tensile strength. the whole of the previous post hinges on people not knowing what that means.

I'm not saying this will happen or anything, if it's a newly designed plant and all of the employees are properly trained to handle as many scenarios as possible, it will be safer than pretty much any other power plant of any type.
i would argue that a plant that has been operating safely for several years would be safer. making pretty much every other power plant safer than a new, untested one...

I guess to answer my own question, it would melt and the radioactive materials would be released and one would hope that the containment room does it's job.
the chances of helvetica scenario are generally overstated.

Oh and KC, your calculations failed to include special relatively adjustments - not that it matters, you got your point across.
i made the appropriate relativistic adjustments, that's why we used a retired navy seal.

the faster you travel, the slower you age. when travelling faster than the speed of light you begin to age backwards. a navy seal on active duty aged, say, 32, would have unborn himself before the hammer reached the rod. the hammer itself would have turned into a tree and a lump of haematite, and the whole hideous apparatus would have been sucked into space.

apparently you missed the part where i explained that uranium fuel rods do not contain anything that is (i) green or (ii) goo. also J9h will hit the flop in some form approximately 45% of the time.

Any tips on how to win $100 at 1/2 live friday? haha...
start with substantially more than $100 and leave before you lose it all.

man though whats the terror threat like in the UK anyway? i just got a new smart phone and its basically like a small computer...pretty nuts
apparently it's "severe" meaning "there's a general election in a month".

the first, last, and only time a nutter showed up with a bomb in a scottish city screaming allahu akbar he got the shit kicked out of him. i believe he was on fire at the time too. it's a bit like when the jehovah's witnesses come round and you try to convert them to roman catholicism. they realise you're even more mental than they are and they leave you the fuck alone.

in any case, we tend not to get ourselves too excited about such things in britain. after 30 years of irish republican conflict and regular (american funded) IRA bombings on the UK mainland, the phantasm of jihadi bogeymen hiding under the bed doesn't really phase us.

we're a poor target for terrorism because we don't rattle. someone blew up a train station did they? that's a shame, are the buses still running?
