    RosieG replied to When "they" dismantle a nuclear reactor where do they bury the dangerous "stuff"? How deep must it be and how long does it stay "alive"?:
    There is indeed a California Hanford Walt. In the San Joanquin Valley. But it isn't YOUR Hanford. Geez a "half life of 700 million years". Now how can anyone possibly KNOW that? Seriously? Thank you for your reply. Does that mean a full life would be 1400...  more

    What reason did they give for refusing to do that? Did they think it would endanger them in any way? Sounds like a great plan to me.Of course if we have massive earthquakes it could disrupt or dislodge them. If we have space debris crash into our earth an...  more

    Not only cool but BREATHTAKING! Thank you for the graphic. "A picture is worth a thousand words" was never more true. I wonder how many BREATHTAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL photos we have of "up in the sky" and "beneath the seas"? :)

    RosieG replied to Millions of folks on the east coast are currently WITHOUT POWER after a storm slammed it's way up the coast. Condolences. WHAT'S NEXT?:
    It's funny odd. When I think of Norway I think of ice and snow and fjords and cold. Grassfires? Seems out of place in my stereotype of the country. Thank you for your reply Durdle! :)

    A lot of the seventies Britcoms, where much of the humour was based on ethnic stereotypes. Mind Your Language in particular.

    The pies have different prices on each island, too. A slice of pie in Kingston is $2.20, in Port-of-Spain the same slice is $3.25, while in Nassau it's a whopping $5.50.These are the pie rates of the Caribbean.

    Not sure, but on a related tangent, people in Jamaica and other Caribbean lands say "carry" in reference to accompanying others to events and places, ie "I'm going to carry my wife to church on Sunday."

    I haven't. I don't like digging through garbage cans due to all the germs and stuff, not to mention you aren't supposed to really, though people do it a lot here. However I had a friend that did it. He found me two working Nintendo game systems. Wow.
