I'm so fucking tired of the OH NOES RAY DEE AY SHUN bullshit from the Japanese reactor and the wet their pants crowd.

If you want to worry about fallout and radiation worry about the 100+ nuclear detonations that have taken place right here inside out borders, or the 2000+ detonations that have taken place world wide. That reactor on the other side of the world poses less risk than your garden hose laying in your yard.

Calm....the fuck....down people. It'll be ok.

I dunno, have you taken a calibrated counter out and walked around to see how much radioactivity is in, say, your front yard?

I'm surprised your shoes dont glow.....

It is an interesting question though. I just add it on to all the other shit that gives me cancer....Smog, smoking, chemicals, fertilizers, chemtrails, Halliburton Cancer Machine.....

That damn garden hose is dangerous. I've almost broken my neck tripping over the damn thing.

The drama is only going to get worse, it's only the middle of the hysteria cycle. They need at least 7-8 days to make it a REAL panic.

I'm going fishing. I suggest you do to.

True, he is also ignoring the fact that countries that never did any nuclear testing have cancer rates that match or are higher than ours.

I think a nuclear blast is probably a lot cleaner than a pile of uranium that's melting down and exposed to the atmosphere. Dilution is the solution or something like that

Exactly what do you qualify as a "nuclear detonation" and how does that differ from a nuclear reactor meltdown? Wait, never mind, you obviously don't know what you're talking about so you can't have an intelligent answer.
Link Posted: 3/15/2011 6:52:58 PM EST
Although I agree with the point you're attempting to make, nuclear detonations aren't exactly comparable to the meltdown of nuclear reactors.

Nothing has "melted down" as of yet. All reactor pressure vessels are intact.

Yes, really. I know a bit more than the media who are milking this incident for ratings.

The slightly enriched 235U fuel pellets are loaded into zirconium tubes which protect the boiling water from contamination. When the water in the vessel boils off, leaving the tubes exposed to just steam, the cooling rate drops and could cause tube failure IF THE CONTROL RODS WERE NOT INSERTED. But all reactors have been scramed, meaning full control rod insertion.

The residual heat is from spontaneous fission of daughter products, these reactions are independent of neutron capture and exponentially decrease from about 7% of maximum thermal output (assuming the scram happened at maximum thermal) to 1% over 8 days. Exponential, remember. The worst is OVER.

Now, with falling water levels in the vessels, the tops of the fuel tubes are exposed. And the temperature can rise to the point where steam is split into hydrogen and oxygen. But this process is also endothermic, COOLING THE TUBES. All those explosions? From hydrogen.

Furthermore, IF the tops of the fuel rods were to decompose from the heat and steam effects, the fuel would only fall to the lower level of water, it would not be able to melt anything, including itself. There isn't enough heat production to melt the zirconium alloy tubes or the mixed oxide fuel in a scramed reactor core. There will be no elephant's foot like what happened in Chernobyl in 1986 because there are multiple layers in the bottom of the reactor vessel to resist this. And the bottom of the reactor is the last place to run dry.
