Fast Breeder Back from the Dead


Here's something to send shivers down your spine. The Japanese, who have a problem with earthquakes, are thinking about bringing back a corroded old fast breeder reactor. Wow!

These things are complex, and have never worked right, without a zillion things going wrong. They make those horrible boiling reactors look earthquake resistant! Anyway, I'm pretty confident they can't make it work, all their smart people have died of old age, and their young people are all Paris Hiltons, who enjoy the crashing population numbers, since it makes for better shopping. (Just kidding, Japan!).
