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...

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.



EMP/SolarFlare wise, yeah its a fugin mess.
I just don't see this as a huge issue.

Especially were I will eventually be.

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.

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..
