Am I going crazy/Strange Concerns... (Prepping)

146 posts in this topic

For anyone questioning these replies, I used to work in the nuke biz.

I'm curious about this map... maps are kinda my thing... One thing I notice right off is that there are two marks right near me in ILM. Now we do have the Brunswick Nuke Plant right across the river here, but not sure what the other mark is for? Maybe the GE plant in Castle Hayne? They have nuke facilities but no reactor that I'm aware of.

It is the GE site. It shows on the map because fuel rods are manufactured there. Also, service tools that come back from service jobs are worked on there, and they are HOT. They have to be worked on in special areas while wearing PPE.

The Southport Plant has two "units". They couldn't put them right on top of each other as you wouldn't be able to discern that there were two there. Similarly there are three at the Greenville SC plant, and two at the Charlotte plant, which is why it's all a huge jumble fug right there. http://www.animateds...ukelist1.htm#NC

Pretty sure the markers are for sites and not units.

I'm working from half remembered info I picked up right after the Japanese tsunami so I admit I could be wrong here... Our reactors are built so that the un-powered state is that the fuel rods are fully retracted into their coolant and their absorption packages. In the case of total power failure they return to their safest and most stable condition expressly to prevent incidents like Fukashima. Its my understanding that barring physical damage to the control mechanisms or deliberate sabotage the reactors here are much more disaster resistant..

Correct. NRC won't let anything happen to us.

The markers coincided with the unit counts, which is why I made the assumption. That and I couldn't find any other "sites" listed in the appointed areas. Care to enlighten me?

Yeah Kurb I figured from your FB posts lately that you're ramping it up.. and from your posts here too I kinda sensed it...

Good on you... Part of it is probably having that adorable baby boy to protect, and subliminally that draws out your primitive urges to survive...

I don't know what's going to happen, or when it is going to happen, but the human race as we know it is ultimately doomed. I think it is doomed in our lifetime... It could come locally via US economical collapse... worldly from a dwindling of resources due to overpopulation... pandemics... or even some kind of natural catastrophe... But I do think it is coming... Even if I am wrong, there isn't a whole lot of harm in being prepared, so long as you don't start going too overboard/addicted.

pharmacies will be raided first with food places, most likely...

After that, you're SOL...

Helpful hint... You can stock up on antibiotics without a prescription from your local pet stores... It is marketed as being for animals, but humans are animals... Just make sure you get the pure stuff with no additives specifically for animals...

    • Yeah really dumb idea. Star players will be getting thrown out for incidental contact that the ref "misunderstands" as a helmet shot. The solution isn't adding more rules or "being stricter" so to say but enforcing the rules that are already established down the middle. Our games are evidence enough that the refs suck but damn I got tired watching other teams play and see the game decided on either bullshit flags or lack of flags. If anybody needs to be punished more it isn't the players but these POS refs the league can't get their heads noses out of the asses of. Always an excuse or some convoluted reason why the refs were right. I actually heard the announcers calling it out tons of these obvious blown calls and yet still the league stands behind the refs like idiots.
    • First I got to say, damn, people trying to instantly make us the most hated team in the league, even over the Patriots aren't they lol. With all the hate Cam already gets then add Kap even if briefly, oh lord I'd hate to picture it. Yeah that first play is what stands out to me the most. I'd expect even a rookie QB to make that read and throw the ball instead of handing it off. That drive ended up in a safety where as if he throws it to Torrey Smith it is easily a 1st down and possibly a TD as he only has to beat one man. I don't even see Kap look around any in that clip so even more so it feels like he gave it away that it was a run play and the Rams read it like a book. I don't feel like we need him nor do I feel like he is better than what we have. As for his protest, I didn't like what he was doing when he was kneeling but hey he had the right to do it. I personally think him putting his money where his mouth was, was a better way than just kneeling and I commend him for doing so. To be honest the 49'ers have said they would welcome him back. Let's not forget he would still be with them had he not voided his own contract. Somebody will sign him though I just don't see it as a starter which is what he clearly wanted to try and be by voiding with the 49'ers.
    • I feel like this is some kind of guilty admission lol and you should feel bad for voting for that Lunatic / traitor president of ours.    But guess what, you will get a chance to redeem yourself in 2020 with more information about the disgraced president  coming out every week.
