In which we, once again, note that Krauthammer, no matter how much we otherwise admire him, really ought to stay away from yoga since it seems to lead him to getting his head stuck up his Khyber Pass.
Speaking of the ever-elusive Godzilla v. Mothra re-enactment in Japan as a result of the most unremarkable nuclear “accident” in the history of nuclear energy:
CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: Look, I think nuclear is dead as a result of this.
And, seeing as how there is no shortage of retards who somehow manage to know even less about nuclear energy than Anderson Cooper, shouting and shrieking that the fact that a nuclear plant with multiple reactors built ages ago managed to survive one of the five biggest earthquakes in recorded history AND a tsunami without creating more than a warm hole in the ground is CONCLUSIVE evidence that nuclear energy is horribly, terribly unsafe and should be abandoned for all eternity starting now, NOW, FOR TEH CHILDURN™, we might agree with him so far.
Sadly, we’re never going to run out of imbeciles in positions of power.
Take a moment to peruse this chart. Short version: The amount of radiation absorbed by this HORRIBLE, DISASTROUS ACCIDENT in a town near Fukushima by somebody spending the entire day there (probably a deaf person who missed the numerous warnings to evacuate) amounts to less than having an extra x-ray taken at your friendly dentist’s office.
We repeat: This is the result of a nuclear plant being hit by not one, but two natural disasters of almost unprecedented nature. No wonder we have to give up on nuclear energy altogether with a safety record that bloody abysmal.
But we digress. If Krauthammer’s observations had been limited to “you know, there are more than sufficient sub-retarded bipedals out there with the right to vote that this might be the end of nuclear energy in this country” he’d have been absolutely right.
But then he bent over too much and his head slipped inside his sphincter:
Look, if Three Mile Island which was a picnic compared with this – one reactor, human error, no health hazard outside of it – as opposed to four reactors, no human error, human heroism in fact, and it’s a disaster of ultimate proportions
Oh my G-D! I went to the dentist and he had to take an extra x-ray because the first wasn’t good enough! BAN DENTISTS! It’s the only way to be sure! The radiation that I was exposed to as a result of that will be the end of dentistry as we know it, and rightfully so, considering the “ultimate proportions” of the disaster I just had to go through!
As a matter of fact, let’s NUKE the dentists. From orbit. Oh, wait, did I say “nuke?” Sorry about that.
Dear Mr. Krauthammer. Stick to what you know something about, because you’re bloody awesome when it comes to that, but please, PLEASE do yourself a favor and cease and desist when it comes to subjects that you know less about than a comatose hamster.
It only makes you look silly.
