- Doesn't appear to be leaning as much as it was two days
ago. It looks like it has sprung back to near-vertical. There is still
steam/smoke emanating from it but no longer coming from the top floor of
the building where the reactor pool used to be. The steam/smoke is now
coming from much lower in the building.
- Therefore, the fuel is no longer on the top floor of
the building. Since they could not have moved it mechanically, the fuel
pool collapsed. It is likely that the reactor pool was drained of water
and allowed to melt into collapse to remove the structural strain from
the building and prevent the fuel from being spread all over the facility
and buried under the rubble and debris of a collapsed building.
- That would have been the logical action given the options
- it's what I would have done - which probably means they didn't do it
on purpose and it just got away from them.
- I believe secrecy breeds mistrust. The Japanese government
has lost the trust of the world that they are 'doing the right thing'.
But we have no soapbox to speak from. America is worse. The bright, shining
example is the TSA. Sure, a LOT of sheep actually believe the TSA is making
their flight safer, but they aren't. They are conditioning people to be
subservient and to accept being treated like prisoners.
- I fly occasionally, when it is absolutely necessary,
and I smile and conform to the program. But I don't accept the lesson
being offered - in fact, BECAUSE they treat citizens like that, they are
alienating a whole lot of people. They are showing EVERYONE how an oppressive
regime treats it's citizens and that has caused a HUGE spike in firearm
sales which is continuing at an ever-faster pace.
- For those poor, deluded people who think FEMA has thousands
of fully staffed death camps, take heart! By accepting that they will
willingly be led into a bus or train to a death camp, they enable that
action. They are resigning themselves to it. When someone accepts helplessness
as a state of mind, they are helpless. People who make the conscious decision
that their lives and the lives of their family and friends are worth less
than the life of some predator who would take them away amaze me. They
will ALLOW themselves to be victimized and blame either an inanimate object
or society. When the fault, in the form of abject cowardice, is much closer
to home than they care to look.
- Everything in nature is either predator or prey. Some
people are predators by nature but we have a choice that most other animals
don't. We don't HAVE to be victims if we don't want to be. The concept
is really not difficult to grasp. When the wolf comes to kill your family,
don't let him.
