obscure details ?
Fair enough and nothing negative taken... In looking back at the way I worded the last one in particular, I can see that came off as being a lot more
'authoritative' than I'd meant it to sound. Honestly... I need to avoid these threads and just keep pretending that nightmare in Japan doesn't exist.
I don't work for anything relating to the Nuclear industry and my College focus has nothing to do with Nuclear topics unless I'm drawing something.
First, I haven't gotten over to the site I normally check for stuff out of Fuku which goes around the media and other stuff..I don't know what they're
saying and leaking (no pun intended) out of there yet. My information comes from a mistake I made in choosing Fukushima and the Tsunami as my very
first and BIG project when I got off the truck and decided to make a web site.
To that end.. I spent the better part of 3 months after that happened reading material, learning layman level nuclear topics and gathering/saving
every scrap of data I could get on anything relating to TEPCO, Fukushima's Dai-Ichi and Dai-Ini plants (Dai-Ini is a about 7km down the coast) with
all the tech specs the public domain held for all things related to it. Basically....an obsession is what it became. Months of it. By the end...I was
so depressed and withdrawn by all I'd learned on this calamity, I'd just about given up...It's *THAT* bad and the only topic I've EVER learned about
and felt true, deep black despair.
I still do because nothing there has gotten better. The reports coming out a couple times a month with photos (usually) make that clear enough. THIS
latest story? Well.. It's like sentencing someone to die...twice. How many times can you doom a nation and areas of the world? This is just piling on
a disaster that doesn't have much room left to get worse unless those containment buildings are just flat blown apart. Say....a Typhoon....and my
biggest fear and nightmare at THIS point.
Make fun and give me hell though.. No.. I'm no professional on nuke topics. I'm just a guy who brought truth to the term that you CAN learn too much
and some things can never be forgotten, once learned. All things in moderation, comes to mind as a saying as well. In this story and topic, my thirst
for knowledge and zest for learning almost ruined my whole outlook on life. Thanks to TEPCO and one damned Earthquake in the worst place on Earth.
