Belated double entendre’.

My radiological tech group is at 2/3rd’s staffing today, on a maintenance day.  It’s been so busy I’ve threatened workers with the possibility of my boss Pedro “swinging a meter”.  (NOTE–He actually is a top-notch rad tech, though we kid otherwise because he’s also management, aka “The Enemy”.)

Anyway, I’ve used “swinging a meter”, a phrase for doing rad surveys, for a quarter-century.  And it’s only today that the alternate, filthy meaning occurred to me.  Perhaps because it’s so anatomically unlikely.

Sorry if that image sticks in your brain, but I’m trying to offload it from mine.

    Well since there hasn’t been any exciting nuke news here on WORM in a while I thought I’d throw this gem into the mix and see what happens:

    http://www.naturalnews.com/033564_solar_flares_nuclear_power_plants.html

    And I thought you would particularly like this statement from genius scientist Mike Adams:

    “Did I also mention that half the people who work at nuclear power facilities have no idea what they’re doing in the first place? Most of the veterans who really know the facilities inside and out have been forced into retirement due to reaching their lifetime limits of on-the-job radiation exposure, so most of the workers at nuclear facilities right now are newbies who really have no clue what they’re doing.”

    So WORM stop all this nonsense about Election year coming up and realize that none of that will matter (according to Mike Adams of Natural News) because the solar flares are comin’!!!!

    What say you?

      That guy is like reading old middle-ages catholic priests sermons; ‘and for a mere ducat, proof of your love for God, you shall be saved!’

      ‘Come back next week and I shall tell you of your sins and how to cure them; we’ll have relics next week, just 20 ducats!’

      And now, for the more serious joke: have you hugged your magnetosphere today!?

      Seemed to be some interesting data here. For instance the Cs-137 map.

      I believe our nuke plants are designed to safely shut down in the event of a massive head-on solar flare. Of course there’s only one way to find out, and hopefully we won’t. Because in that event there’s tons of other very very bad things that could happen, to our electric and info infrastructure.

      I haven’t worked in nuke plants since 1997, but they’re not that bad. And I think our safety mindset would prove better than Japan’s, where administrators apparently made some engineer-type decisions.
