Nuclear/radiation side rant:

If people knew half of the things that emitted radiation that they are exposed to on a daily basis, they would either move into a fortress of solitude away from everything or finally decide nuclear plants are ok.

I know. Ever ate a banana? Did you know that they emit radiation when you ate it?

It is funny as a nuclear chemist because of radiation controls and shielding for the reactor under normal circumstances I actually received less radiation annually than flight attendants, lol!

I did get quite a lot more than that, but that is only because as an ELT I had to conduct surveys in the reactor compartment every time we shut down and because of some other qualifications I had I did most of the supervising of work inside the RC. Under normal operations though, even with my direct sampling of the reactor plant water exposure was very minimal though.

Yeah, my job is pretty low exposure, but it's funny how people think I'm going to die younger because I get the amount of exposure in 4 years that they get from taking 2-3 flights.

I use the dvr for all the shows I watch too. Its just easier. But I usually end up forgetting its dvr and letting the commercials play.

The media in general scares people. They talk about things they have no idea about, but they try to act like they have a clue. Then they spread bad information and people just believe it.

When the Japan Tsunami happened I don't know how many times I had to explain to people that we didn't have to worry about radiation from their reactors affecting us in Seattle! Yeah, the media here caused a big scare about that

To add to that, they act like that was just a common occurance and could happen anywhere. How many earthquakes in our historical records have ever been that strong and then how many of those were followed up by a 40 foot tsunami. If I remember right, the plant was designed for an 8.0 magnitude quake and up to a 30 foot tsunami. What did they get? An 8.9 and a 40 foot tsunami. The thing is, the problem wasn't the earthquake. The plant was damaged but could have easily been put in a safe condition. It was the 40 foot wall of water that wiped out all power lines coming into the plant and knocking out their backup generators that did them in.

Probably similar to my husband's rants watching movies/tv shows about firefighters. I love the movie Backdraft, but can't watch it with him.


On another note, with my foster daughter's senior prom 5 days away, she was informed by her date today that he is no longer going to be her date. Nice. Oddly, the same thing happened to me 24 years ago. They were already planning to go with my niece, who was dateless, so chances are, they'll have more fun without the boy along, but that doesn't lessen my desire to choke the little punk.

It only gets worse geek. Pretty soon you'll be doing the "When I was a kid..." thing. Hey as I typed that I though, that could be a fun lounge thread. I think I'll give it a try.

Well obviously the little bugger doesn't know anything because anyone can see a woman raised in your house is fun and fearless.

That sucks. Dude needs a beating If a.) you didn't live so far away and b.) I wasn't so old and wouldn't get looked at like a creepy old guy....I'd be her date. Saddens me to see what girls put up with from guys. If they had an older guy that knew the error of his ways take them on one date and show them how they really should be treated with the respect they deserve, they'd be able to choose a lot better and the guys would be forced to realize what they were doing wrong.

I think every dad should take his daughter on a couple of "dates" to set that example/standard for every teenage daughter.

On another note, with my foster daughter's senior prom 5 days away, she was informed by her date today that he is no longer going to be her date. Nice. Oddly, the same thing happened to me 24 years ago. They were already planning to go with my niece, who was dateless, so chances are, they'll have more fun without the boy along, but that doesn't lessen my desire to choke the little punk.

I'm not looking forward to when my daughter starts dating... but at the same time, I'd kick that guy's a** for doing that to my daughter. I am going to make sure boys are scared of me though

Aww thanks. I think it's just his "revenge" that she didn't want to be in a serious relationship. She's 18 for goodness sakes, she's not ready for that. But he's 19 and wants to find someone to settle down with already. He's known for a while that she wasn't interested in being serious, but waited til now to ditch her. Jerk.

But some of us needed to learn the bard way to make sure the lesson was firmly entrenched in our heads. Plus it makes finding that one special man that much better.

Oh yeah, there would still be tons of lessons to learn the hard way, but I think some of them wouldn't be SO hard with a good example.

True. But some of us have a good example and may have needed to go the hard way. (I have no idea who though)

Haha, yeah...both my wife and I as well as our siblings had great examples...but we all had some hard lessons to learn. I think the severity was lessened somewhate though. Nobody's going to be perfect.

LOL, you may need to merge with another Lounge thread, already started by "old dudes."

How many remember this stuff?

Didn't Microsoft have a huge court battle over similar practices of packaging things on their systems? Lest we forget that Verizon packages them on there and then doesn't allow removal.

There was a great scene from Clueless where the dad says to his daughter's date something like "If you mistreat my daughter, I have a .45 and a shovel and no one will ever find you..."

I'm willing to use that quote.

^Kinda like the Rodney Adkins song.... except he makes no mention of a shovel. "I'll see ya when you get back, bet I'll be up all night cleaning this gun" You can bet I'll be using that one.

Hey, if any of you have a few minutes to spare (literally 2 minutes tops), could you please fill this out:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dHg5SnExNDZ0MlNtdWZkS1VSM2dQZkE6M Q#gid=0

It is for a project that I need data for.

Thanks,

I believe that was Packard Bell and it was the genesis of the term bloatware. MS got in trouble for bundling IE with Windows.
