The Dumbest thing ever said about Nuclear Power?
Well it was when I had only watched one or two of his videos, or some of the other videos about fukushima. Now I realize that there are a LOT of people competing for this title!

I worked at the UK’s nuclear weapons plant for about 9 years and there are only really 3 ways to become irradiated.
1. inhalation 2. Injection 3. absorption.
So as long as you don’t breathe it get stabbed by an isotope or just rub it on an open wound you going to be just fine.
Oops, sorry! Forgot 4. ingestion. Don’t eat your radiation isotopes!
Its a crazy thing that an awful lot of superheros are born from an radioactive disaster of some sort.
Dr Manhattan and the intrinsic field generator, Spiderman being bitten by a radioactive spider, and of course the Incredible Hulk and his gamma ray overdose.
In reality of course places where you can get exposed to such radiation have a LOT of safety features. Take for instance the reactor in this video, its got something like 5 failsafes. 5 rods can be dropped into the reactor, each of which will kill the criticality in milliseconds. They are held up by electromagnets, so if the power fails, they drop under gravity into the reactor. If somehow they don’t drop under gravity, they can be pushed by compressed air.
Anyways, this is a little taster of what its like to work inside a nuclear reactor! 🙂
