plug that phucer in
damn I need a new thumbnail, didn't see you before.Are you also a delayed Hitler's sperm clone ?
Somehow, I get the idea that even if a fucking mushroom cloud bloomed over that plant, TEPCO would still be insisting that they're "making progress." At what? Rendering an entire island nation an uninhabitable wasteland?
I'm no expert on thermal imaging, but it sure looks to me like the entire Reactor #2 building is HOT. A big yellow square.
exactly that already happened. they had a mushroom cloud explosion and they said they were making progress. that happened already. they said it was a hydrogen explosion.
The whole thing is completely asinine. BAD IDEA: Build reactors atop fault lines, especially ones on the ring of fire. BAD IDEA: Consistently obfuscate, if not outright lie, about what's going on as said reactors disintegrate in the wake of natural disaster. BAD IDEA: Continue lying, even when the preponderance of evidence suggests that you're so full of shit that you probably wipe your mouth with toilet paper on a routine basis.
GOOD IDEA: Get the fuck out of Dodge.
WORSE IDEA: Build 6 reactors so close together that if one has a problem, no Humans can fix it!
Actually, I don't think the fault line was the problem - it was the proximity of the reactors to the shoreline. From what I could surmise, the reactors survived the initial quake and it was the tsunami that caused the catastrophic failures. I thought those reactors stood up quite well to a magnitude 9 quake (as pretty much nothing survives such a rumble).

Who's gonna believe Japan's MSM?....
Please Remain Calm! The Ministry of Thermal Redaction has raised the safe limit of heat exposure for humans to 130 degrees Celsius. The workers may now enter the chamber to begin repairs.
How long until they raise it to 150?
Depends on how many functioning technicians they have left.
maybe they'll offshore the idea.
Fahrenheit 451 coming soon.
Congratulations! You're now a ZH tweet. User-generated content is what the web is all about, I guess. Any time we can give back to TD and the rest is a very good thing. ZH is an absolutely invaluable resource. And their tweets are great!
"Hot, hot, hotter than hell."
yes, just like those other famous thermal images. Will these be ignored too
I hadn't thought of it before, but yes, it's possible there was enough iron and aluminum debris for thermism.
What causes grey smoke in a fire?
"Thin, light-coloured smoke moving lazily out of the building usually indicates a small fire involving ordinary combustibles. Thick, dark grey smoke “pushing” out of a structure, suggests a larger, more intense fire. Afire involving petroleum products will produce large quantities of black, rolling smoke that rises in a vertical column."

They failed to elect a pope?
Black smoke is when the election for pope fails.
White smoke is when the election for the pope is settled.
Gray smoke? We got fucking Schrodinger's pope!
lol! jumping catatonic, catentropic cats!!!
Schrodinger's pope... nice, very nice.
Not bad at all....
128 C is nothing. Hell, my AMD graphics card easily reaches 90.
About 260 F but, I assume, that's at the surface of the structure and not the reactor itself. It can't be the reactor itself (or at least not the core). I think the point was to show that #3 is still hot relative to the others.
That's one seriously hot graphics card. It's like a easy-bake-laptop if that's a fact.
Honestly, what are they complaining about? Strap on a few heatsinks...maybe some liquid cooling and you're good. Hook that up to a Rad-Suit and get some workers in there....
Gordon Freeman and his HEV suit could fix it.
His old man is a television repairman, and he's got this ultimate set of tools.
thank goodness! the maytag repairman just peeled outa the grocery parking lot and is fishtailing outa town, screaming, I don't do GE, I don't do GE...
it's a bit dicey to send in the workers. Perhaps we send in anne coulter, she seems to think it'll give her a nice tan
Why the cold feet? We can always print more workers. Wait a minute....I think I am starting to get my Tyrannical Methodologies crossed....
That's what I was thinking too, my GTX 470s can hit 91 degrees celsius under load.
Escape, can I sit on your lap? I'm about 98.6
Not hot enough fancy pants, that's only about 37C
lol! p'raps the lady woulda found it preferable to sit on yours?
I don't know if Anna Chapman - my avatar - would like to sit on your lap. I, however, am afraid I will have to pass. Thanks for the offer, though.
It's a trap!
That is the temperature after is is spread out across the containment vessel. You graphics card might be fine at 90C, but what if the outside of your case was 90C?
Reactor two looks REALLY BAD, as the whole building looks very hot. Not good, considering the power is out there.
My understanding is that Reactor 2 didn't blow its stack in a hydrogen blast because they weren't able to relieve reactor vessel pressure due to a faulty vent. No venting, no hydrogen.
But the venting was supposed to be done, due to high reactor pressure, and couldn't be accomplished. So what does that mean? Is the reactor vessel stable?
It has to be > 5 Sv in those buildings ... might be 50 Sv !!
Graham cracker, marshmallow, and hershey bar sales poised to soar...CNBC.
The Japanese Government (which is still blocking youtube, has a no fly zone in place near Fukushima, and has gag orders on Fukushima workers), TEPCO, the IAEA, Dr. Josef Oehmen, Dr. Monreal, and many, many other institutions and individuals have assured everyone that the situation is stable, that there is little risk of any harm, and that we should all just move on from this subject, because Fukushima Daiichi is being wound down safely and quietly, and will soon be but a footnote in history books.
Asahi Video has a couple of shorts of spraying water not on YouTube
Pardon, but in Japanese that is a "No fry zone."
