Nah.. I think it's because you insist on writing in all capitals.  It's kind of annoying.  I didn't junk you btw.

and bullish for INTC.  it takes a lot of computing power to create trillions of yen (and subsequently dollars) on a laptop.

I've been bullish on lead for a while... as long as its hollow point or FMJ ;-)

I wish CheaperThanDirt.Com was a publically traded company.  Imagine all the lead they are slinging now.....huge upward trending.

FMJ is fine on the range.

However, when there's a job to do, 124 grain JHP is your boy.

Have a good diversified 'basket of bullets', depending on the job at hand you want all kinds while JHP is fine for zombies in the street, theyll splatter like a paintball on a radiator or car door, then switch to FMJ.

Tokyo Electric admits fuel could be melting at Fukushima nuke plant

TOKYO, April 21, Kyodo

Which reactor?  Two I imagine?  They have no pressure in the reactor vessel and it's pretty hot.  That original explosion in the containment system is probably the main source for all this radioactive water.

Follow up on that thought.   Tyler would it be possible to put source links into your documentation?  

I see a lot of good articles and I want to share them out.   Thanks.

news flash: Tyler cannot rule out the fact that he/they:

(a) are short uranium stocks

(b) are trolling for website visits to increase the market value of ZH

Being short uranium stocks would be a good idea.  I'm pretty sure one can't short the physical unless you hang out in Putin's or Sarkozy's circle of friends.

Uh....I don't think the population ever ruled meltdown out so how is this even news?

This can't even be considered an 'airing of the dirty laundry' because everyone assumed that since there was nothing accomplished to contain the situation that a meltdown was pretty much in the works.

There's nothing really going on in the world, whether politically, financially, militarily, revolutionary, speculatively, on a sovereign basis, metereologically or radiologically.
