You, the earthquake was big and so the wave. Sure this was a big catastrophe.

But have you thought radioactive fuel in spend fuel pool of Fukushima, if the now destabilised spend fuel pool get a big crack so that the water runs out? I think it is very likely that you don't need an earth quake as big as the one from March 10 to get this done...

Comment Just wondering... (Score 1) 76 76

1) The current problems are just happening while the earth around is half way stable and not shaking too much. But what will happen if a half way decent earthquake is hitting the area of Fukushima? What will then happen to all those water tanks which seem already now to have bigger problems on a regular basis? What will happen to all the other sensitive parts of the nuclear plant whose structure is already badly damaged from the previous tsunami.

2) How many decades will the damaged poweplant still have to survive before it is not anymore a danger?

3) How frequently are half way decent earthquakes in that region?

I'm sure that the big catastrophy is still comming .. and will come sooner or later...

Comment Shame on the TSA (Score 1) 1174 1174

What else can one say, than shame on the TSA.

I fly a lot in the EU and I never had any problems with the security process. I was always treated respectfully and profesional manner.

But flying to the US (which I awoid at any cost, but sometimes I can't) is always an unpleasent thing. In a way the USA has lost already against terrorism since it lets itself be terrorised.

That a country of democracy and "freedom" has its people treated like this is nothing else than shameful...

"The departure lounge allows international and domestic passengers to be together so that the domestic passengers have access to the lounge facilities, according to BAA." ... which looks like a security design fail to me.

Still, what if I have a valid, selfbought ticket from Miami to Heathrow T5 with a connecting flight to some small local airport in the UK afterwards?
