Yeah I wish that this had been the direction that everyone had gone back in the 50's. The US had that option but of course weaponisation was a key part of the economy and security back that way. So here we are staring down the barrel of a loaded shotgun wondering if it's loaded this time round. Thorium reactors might not be 100% clean but at least the result is far easier to store and contain and the reaction stops when you flick the switch so to speak. This is one of the times when I say "Go China!"

Perhaps RumbleFish could change names to that or perhaps ZambiShark?

Quoting from []

"The bull shark, Carcharhinus leucas, also known as Zambezi shark or unofficially known as Zambi in Africa and Nicaragua shark in Nicaragua, is a shark common worldwide in warm, shallow waters along coasts and in rivers. The bull shark is well known for its unpredictable, often aggressive behavior."

We're playing god far too much. What with this and anti-biotics in animal feed. Oh and wait lets not forget Fukushima while we're mentioning more god like dablings. And while we're at it why don't we also forget to maintain the damn things or better yet pretend we maintained them and then blame nature when it all goes pear shaped!

Can't wait to see what 2012 brings. I just hope we can learn to work with nature a little more instead of against it.
