Warning, we must shut down all that needs maintenance

No one will be able to take care of anything 19 years from now.
In this we must trust.


I see clearly now, the universe have the black dots, Thus I am on my way of inventing this remedy...

Re: Warning, we must shut down all that needs maintenance

Hi LQ;

Long time no see.

19 years from now? Who says they can take care of them right now.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

You mean they can't take care of the nuclear plants even as we speak?

Hi LQ;

Maybe. Do I trust them?

Who does? I don't want to have risky energy, it is gonna fail you know, if it can happen it would allmost emidiately do.

Re: Warning, we must shut down all that needs maintenance

Look what happened in Japan. When any disaster occurs they are vulnerable. They probably leak on a daily basis and they just never tell anyone.

Re: Warning, we must shut down all that needs maintenance

I stay far away from anything radioactive. I remember being in the hospital and listening to some quack recommending a radioactive tracer being put in my body.

As soon as he left, I got up out of that bed and crawled out of that hellhole.

Well done! I would have tried the same thing, allthough I'm not sure I would've gotten away.

They wanted to keep me all night, meanwhile they were denying me water and this is the desert!

Anyways, nuclear energy is big bust.

I hope they end the whole nuclear business. I can live without electricity when it comes down to it.

There are other ways to generate electricity.

Re: Warning, we must shut down all that needs maintenance

Yeah, but it isn't that important with electricity for me, it's not worth a risk or anything... Why did they start with that? They must've been mad about the electricity when it first came. Nothing of it appeals to me anymore, one get a little bored of it eventually. What do you think?

Without electricity we would not be here discussing whether we need it.

Which is funny, but there's other things to do without electricity

Yes, there are but aren't there already too many of us?

Didn't think of that. Well I'm sorta thinking that problem will solve itself, very soon.

Hi LQ;

I was joking. But you are partially right.

Re: Warning, we must shut down all that needs maintenance

Hi;

The shutting down of all equipment that requires a lot of work to maintain is the nearest explanation.

Yes, shabang will describe it or maybe shaboom.
