The Japanese can fly to Hawaii and do not even need a Visa.  Look for Hawaii's economy to improve.

About six months ago when I was there I wasn't the only one helping their economy, but I can't fathom how those real estate prices can be propped up too much longer.

If the core melts and the pressure vessel bursts (and eventually melts), it will catch the molten fuel and everything else. It is built in such a way that the nuclear fuel will be spread out, so it can cool down.

Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/japan-reactors-pose-no-risk-2011-3#ixzz1GcLQGDx8 So, in theory, pressure vessels are to reactors as blow out preventers (BOPs) are to undersea oil wells?

Same thing, get the fuck out while there is still time. I even sold my silver call warants today. Most of my assets can be put in my car, i even took 5 year visa's for the family just in case the eu get hammered. Even a 5% chance is big enough for me.
If somthing where to go wrong i'd go to argentinia which has a big agreculture base.

California is so anti-business and has such high taxation only a fool would move their company there (unless absolutely necessary). Bug out to Nevada, they welcome businesses of all types and office space is going cheap. AZ is another option.

Actually far less than most of america. (it's just been propagandized well that we are)

Southern fools and national republican/tea party people do not make up the spirit of the population of Arizona.  When I hear a racist word, it's ALWAYS somebody from OUT OF TOWN or from a religious cult.  Guess from where? Example, Atlanta.

People don't realize that of the MLK decision, that we were the ONLY state to have the PEOPLE pass it.  (probably a republican national thing as well)

We put it to the people, and 50 percent voted it down.  1-3 years later, we passed it.  None of the other states can say that.  Otherwise, do you really think that ~1989 that ANY of the southern states would have passed it?

We also have a major cult with a huge population base, that is the predominant racists that are born here.  But that cult is in every state, just more so here than most.

Take those aspects away, and Arizona is one of the most friendliest states around.  All one needs to do is ask an African American from the south, who might reside in Arizona now to tell you the difference.

It's really just idiots, thinking like idiots, being controlled from outside.  Once the banksters go down, that link will be severed, for the most part (since they are one and the same or at least compadres with like goals).

How can a state be "racist"?  Granted, "racism" is often fostered by the State to enable and obscure its criminal criminal actions.  But, your statement is offensively stupid.

I suspect, Sir, that you are a collectivist - and not worth junking.

Here in belgium they announced on the radio you can get a free package per person at the pharmacy. Why would they do that? It took 3 month for them to get organized with the big flu pandemic and now only 2 days!
I'm getting some tomorrow and i'll go to the doctor to hear if the kids can take them just in case.
After chernobyl, it came out that all our food was contaminated. They didn't warn the public because there was nothing they could do. Years after that, cancer rates spiked!

The Japanese nuclear engineer Masashi Goto said a few hours ago that the next 24 hours will be crucial if one manages to avoid a complete meltdown of this reactor. If that happens, along with a blast, plutonium can be spread over an area twice the size of a conventional nuclear explosion. This is because, according to Goto that these reactors using mixed oxide fuel.

The Japanese expert believes that an explosion at one of these plants will be worse for the population, than if the same happened in a facility that uses ordinary nuclear fuel.

If this thing goes "China Syndrome" it'll be the mother of all dirty bombs. MUCH worse than any "clean" A-bomb detonation! Hundreds of pounds of plutonium oxides would be released into the atmosphere. That shit causes cancer upon inhalation of a few micrograms.

Whoa, there, plutonium? I'm not a nuclear physicist but I thought nuclear fission was when uranium split into lighter elements. How would a uranium reactor produce plutonium???

Mon, 03/14/2011 - 22:00 | 1052976 New World Chaos

Uranium-235 is the isotope that fissions.  Reactor-grade enriched uranium is still mostly uranium-238, which absorbs the reactor's neutrons instead of fissioning.  The resulting uranium-239 then decays into plutonium, so all nuclear reactors contain some plutonium.  However, I think this reactor is partially fueled with plutonium, because this way it can run on cheap unenriched uranium while simultaneously generating some of its own plutonium fuel.  Plutonium fallout is more dangerous than uranium fallout because uranium has a very long half life, so the extra plutonium in this reactor has people worried.
