to what degree it was satire is debatable
With respect, the strings between husbands and wives so that they can find their way back when drunk is a pretty enormous fucking clue!
I tried being polite but you are not only a fucking idiot but one that wants to throw away what George Washington gave you.
So seen as a ridiculous joke in 1516 - is life so much more simple now that it's no longer ridiculous?
While some simplification is a good idea I don't think we can dumb it down enough to get rid of the lawyers without risking some grave injustices (see King John and why we ended up with Magna Carta to rein him in for example).
eg."The reason we have a nuclear waste issue is because of the reprocessing ban that Jimmy Carter put in place"
A vast number of others are on the Fukishima articles - especially the ones on the day proclaiming success before the list of problems became clear (eg. the secondary problems from fuel storage on site).
regardless of when you do it or what your skills are
Far less risky when you have some saleable skills.
I've been following the Indian ideas on accelerated Thorium but had no idea that Lithium could also fit in the concept.
Waste disposal is still, the last I heard, an unsolved problem
I mentioned Synroc above so if you had read the entire post before replying you would have heard otherwise. Not ideal and it doesn't cover everything but a solution of sorts.
Does anyone actually think that?
Perhaps they do not, but whether they believe it or not we get plenty of people on this site saying it.
However if you want an answer, for the very active waste there is Synroc - bit of a guess as to how much it can be scaled up to drop costs but at least it (finally) exists. The less active stuff is a lot easier to handle and store, which is just as well because it makes up the majority of the volume of nuclear waste
don't use passive voice
It depends on the material - technical documents are a bit different to marketing material so sometimes you are stuck with it.
If the advice has a chance of being wrong it's not a good situation to insist it's perfect.
