    This is my favorite new thing in the world today. Proof that science and engineering can do good things.

    Give an engineer some free time and you never know what they'll think of (and make).

    I'm taking an hour off today to hear a seminar on thorium reactors. Pretty cool since I'm not sure my company is involved in them, yet, but it's great that they sponsor these events.

    Very cool. We need to progress in that area. Coal should be dead.

    3.5M :: 1 ratio for energy efficiency between Thorium and Coal. Very nice.

    Also, there's no Thorium in the Middle East.

    Western MD (and I think Rt 15 is the dividing line) has very little in common with the DC suburbs.

    The guy talked about this. I hated, hated, hated this assertation. I don't care what the energy density is. And I don't know what energy efficiency is as it relates to the raw material.

    Energy density is meaningless if it can be harvested and utilized cleanly and it doesn't produce harmful wastes.

    I should also add, this whole talk left me feeling interested in the technology but very suspicious about his motives and the future of the concept.

    He glossed over the drawbacks and dodged the questions about them.

    ALL the nopes. But hey, if it helps someone feel better about themselves and they've got the money to pay for it, then be my guest.

    I figure there'd be a woman out there to foot the bill just to say, "See how you like it".

    Didn't Schwarzenegger already make this movie?

    Women and I have an understanding. They tend to stay away from me, and I tend to understand that I'm repulsive to them. It's not my favorite understanding.
