Radioactive Beer Kegs

There's a great line in the Panda movie, and I butcher it: "If you flee from radioactive waste, it will come back and hit you in the head.".

First we have the article about Beer Kegs, and then we have an article about a hospital. Both are at the receiving end of blind local policies to keep radioactive waste out of their state or country. Take that Nevada! It's coming back in your poker chips!

Yes, Reid and all the nimbies only have so long, before it's kicked out the back of a pickup truck onto their front lawns. Oh I love the flight from rationality, like taking on limitless debt, it all soon comes to an end.

At the Harold School of Rationality, we don't like Yuk-Yuk Mountain much, but it's a good enough solution. Just ditch the dreams, such as 'one million years', 'kept from humanity forever', etc. It's not a religious solution, it's just a solution.

For Canada, we've got to something better than the Americans and find a cheap solution, bashed over the heads of the local nimbies. Who can afford pandering in these times?

It's a good solution; it just has to be packaged in such a way so as to be able to check it every 50-100 years or so. Reid's against a lot of things.

Yeah, it's big pile of volcanic rubble, riddled by faults, but the only threat is if the whole area suddenly turns into rain forest! Of course, nobody is going to live through that!

We're not too afraid of rain forests here in Nevada - although we avoid them like the plague whenever possible.
