by the time you finish reading this post verbatim will have already disliked it


Verb would also dislike the image since it's from an anime.

It's perfect then.

His eyebrows sparkling, his white beard hangs down to his chest. The thatched mats, spread outside his chise, spread softly, his splendid attos. He polishes, cross-legged, his makiri, with his eyes completely absorbed.

He is Ainu.

The god of Ainu Mosir, Ae-Oine Kamuy, descendant of Okiku-Rumi, He perishes, a living corpse. The summers day, the white sunlight, unabrushed, ends simply through his breath alone.
tfw you'll never be hot enough to melt steel beams

And, not to mention, gasoline is taxed at close to 20pc in the US. Hell, we'd be even better off if people didn't stop fucking with nuclear energy ever time it tries to make an effort.
Just imagine the amount of diesel that would be saved if the larger commercial and transportation vehicles went nuclear. A nuclear powered freight train would be nothing more than a modern steam locomotive. The coal car would be the reactor and the boiler would be the engine. The only thing you have to do is have a series of cables connecting both cars together for the steam to transfer over. For cargo and cruise ships the military has nuclear powered vessels which works very well. I don't get why large civilian and corporation ships don't use reactors either. The amount of diesel it takes to power those things is huge. With the amount of diesel a super cargo ship takes is enough to fill a shit load of smaller vehicles. There are nuclear powered cargo ships but the amount there are for them they might as well not exists.

The other thing that would make the price of gas go down is that if we didn't destroy or rail system. Trains are able to pull far more weight than semis and they are able to hull more people than what buses and planes do. To me when it comes to transportation we have no idea what we're doing. We're using inefficient means to power things and we're not taking advantage of a means of transportation that's a lot more practical.

"A nuclear powered freight train"

We need to stop that shit, right there.

K. Trains are already destructive enough when they derail. And lately they've been derailing a lot. In fact an entire town was practically vaporized up in rural Quebec last year in the winter when a tanker train detonated right in the middle of it.

We don't need mini nukes on rails just yet.

That's not how nuclear energy works, like at all.

When a nuclear bomb or missle is dropped it's put on a timer.  It detonates before it hits the ground for maximum impact.  If the bomb fails to trigger the detonation then it just crashes into the ground.  That's the reason why this bomb didn't detonate when it landed in the delta, because it wasn't triggered.

Will there be a radiation leak?  Probably.  But this isn't 1986.  We have failsafes in place.  The damage the radiation would cause would be minimal.

But I'm saying it's not cheap enough, and capitalism isn't doing jack fucking shit to make it any better than any other system could.
Capitalism can't melt authoritarian regimes.

Well, it can, but the Saudis aren't letting up.

Assuming the train wasn't a tanker and it detonated due to crashing and lighting it's own payload on fire. I wasn't reffering to the reactor exploding.

More so the radiation on the cake type of deal if a flammable hauler exploded.

It's this type of ignorant thinking which is holding us back. There's people out there like you that hear the word "nuclear" and no matter what it is they just think bomb. A nuclear reactor is not going to end up being a nuclear bomb. If there's any type of explosion it's just going to be steam. Any nuclear reactors built today are going to be far safer than what was built in the past.

Once again, I say again.

I wasn't reffering to the actual explosion. I was reffering to the radiation. You know, the contaminated waste components that come with all reactors.

And no, you silly fuck, that ignorant thinking isn't holding anybody back because

A) I'm a fucking farmhand out in a field somewhere who will never decide any issues regarding nuclear power, nor will the oppurtunity ever grace itself upon me,

and

B) It's stupid fucks in office that are essentially holding folks back. I don't call any shots. They do. And they're prone to calling a lot of wrong fucking shots regardless of any logical facts presented.

So sit the fuck down.

Take my sarcasm about a mini-nuke on rails.

And please.

Shove it up your ass until it sticks. Fuck man. I'm not that ignorant.

Not even Chernobyl was a god damn explosion. It was mostly heat, steam, and some other shit leaking out. Fukishima reactor was basically water and more steam and shit leaking out into the ocean. It would take some special engineering to make a nuclear reactor explode.

This is not the greatest sig in the world, no. This is just a tribute.
So long as truckers exist, I oppose nuclear trains. I've seen too many of those gear jockeys get themselves hung up by their trailer on train tracks over a hill that they should damn well know they can't clear.

This too. Joking or no I've actually driven by recent train wrecks because a semi was going too fast and figured he could beat the train.

Ever see it happen? It makes a sound that puts small artillery to shame.

Never in action, no. But I've passed by the equipment needed to haul everything up and back onto the tracks or elsewhere and I've stared at the literal mile or so of crumpled or fucked train cars.

Train cleanup is messy.
