Ehhhh not exactly.

What do you mean not exactly? If plants aren't supervised and they lose power and back up generator power, which they will in the event of societal and infrastructure meltdown - then yes, they will blow the fug up.

Edit: the power is needed to supply the coolant obviously, in case I wasn't clear.

Yeah, I guess... in other words, shitty map making.

Would have been much better to color code multi-reactors vs single reactors.

Indeed.

If the poo hits the fan, I'm just warning you guys now.

I'm going to fug all of your wives.

It's nothing personal, it's just the survival instinct taking over. I apologize in advance.

I wish... we've barely had enough work for the 3 of us to do the last two months...

i actually anticipate the biggest problem in a breakdown of social order would be the method by which food is domesticated. there relatively few farms in the US and they make up for size by industrial production. a breakdown in social order would mean these processing plants ceasing entirely, disrupting the flow of food at a rate much quicker than, say, fifty years ago (and of course imports would cease as well.)

if things really got ugly, having two weeks of food wouldn't do you a damn bit of good. your best bet is to start practicing horticulture.
