It's funny, using that defense.

After the Exxon Valdez disaster, Captain Joseph Hazelwood said, "Shit happens".

It was widely reported that he had been drinking heavily that night, was not at the controls when the ship struck the reef. and Exxon blamed Captain Hazelwood for the grounding of the tanker.

(shit happens, get over it)

None of that was true of course.

In reality, the third mate was at the helm. and he ran into the Bligh Reef.

The RAYCAS radar is how you avoid that particular shit from happening. . But the radar was not turned on. In fact, the tanker's radar was left broken and disabled for more than a year before the disaster, and Exxon management knew it. It was just too expensive to fix and operate.

But hey, just say "Shit happens", shrug your shoulders and move on.

Because you know in your heart, you really just don't give shit.

According to the article, the workers cleaning up the Fukushima mess wear special disposable protective plastic overcoats: amazingly, they get through six thousand a day. But the coronavirus outbreak has affected the availability of such garments, so the Fukushima staff may have to swap to using more generic disposable raincoats: the article says these will be just as safe, but will lack the transparent pockets for displaying ID badges and other special features built into the garments they normally wear.

Amazing! Learning finally occurs. You're right for once: I just don't give a fuck.

Particularly about shit I can't change. I leave that to peeps like yourself. :)

Japan lifts evacuation order for town hit by Fukushima disaster

Futaba to reopen for start of Olympic torch relay after being deserted for nine years

Japan has lifted an evacuation order for parts of a town in the shadow of the wrecked Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, weeks before the area is to host the start of the Olympic torch relay.

Futaba, 2.4 miles (4km) west of the plant, has been almost deserted since the nuclear meltdown nine years ago, while other areas in the region have mounted a partial recovery after the government declared them safe for residents.

The start of the relay’s Japan leg at the end of the month is supposed to showcase Fukushima’s recovery from the world’s worst nuclear accident since Chernobyl in 1986, but some residents say their home towns may never return to normal.

Futaba’s 7,000 residents were forced to evacuate after the March 2011 disaster, which was triggered by a powerful earthquake and tsunami that killed more than 18,000 people along Japan’s north-east coast.

The reopening of a 1.5 sq mile area of Futaba means reconstruction workers can stay in accommodation near the railway station, but residents will not be able to return for another two years, when its water supply and other infrastructure will have been restored, according to local officials.

They will be able to enter and leave for short visits without going through security, and will no longer need to wear protective clothing, but will not be allowed to stay overnight.

Sounds like a Japanese Potemkin village. :mrgreen:

"Ignoring" works better when you really ignore as well as "ignore".

Just sayin' :wink:

Has the reactor melted it's way down to the core of the earth yet? You know, like the nuclear scientists of the 1940's promised?
Actually, you know, it was the China syndrome that concerned scientists.

It is a very dire situation that a pile of nuclear fuel can just keep burning it's way through pretty much anything. No metal, no rock can stop it. And this shit is just an accidental situation. If you planned it, and used a lot of fuel (not just the paltry hundred tons or so from a reactor core), and could find a spot with no underground water, you could bore a hole down to the magma layer. Instant volcano!

Yes, the isolation and not being able to work is starting to cause real problems
