“Volcanoes are a problem with most subduction zones. However, there are a few places on earth that offer subduction zones with "volcanic gaps." These would be the most ideal places to consider depositing our nuclear power waste.
“The volcanoes are miles from the actual subduction flow. By the time the wastes get close to the volcanoes (miles underground), the rest of the moving magma will have smeared it for dozens of miles along that flow. It would then take centuries to decay, mix with other rock, and find other places in the "rock-cycle" to join and break-down. By that time, it will be as unnoticeable as any background radiation, even if any of it were to join a lava (eruptile) flow.”
“Didn't Saddam allow inspectors? The US was hellbent on going to war then. Seems like a similar situation is being setup. BTW, your insights are fantastic, and I think WonderY has been sicked on you.”

the third time since the war began three years ago, Bush had falsely
claimed that Saddam refused the U.N. weapons inspections mandated by
the Security Council. For the third time, he had denied a reality
witnessed by the entire world during the four months when those
inspectors, under the direction of Hans Blix, traveled Iraq
searching fruitlessly for weapons of mass destruction that, as we now
know for certain, were not there."
you knew that. right? http://www.salon.com/2006/03/31/bush_lies/”

“Yup, and bush lied about it, and told the inspectors to leave.
You got it, every war since WWII is on SIC lies, and they have all been disasters. ”
“I really appreciate your wisdom, Genders. Yes, powerful forces are at work. I think that there must be competing factions within the ranks. I hope that my optimism isn't nïave. I wish that we could have more transparency in the pursuit of the greater good. Our media is so manipulated though, its difficult to sort it all out.”
“Great insight. We knew the risk/reward conditions. Our interests were at stake. The playbook was put into motion.
BTW, I hardly ever receive your posts anymore, even though I am signed up to receive them. However, I did get a recent innocuous comment about a celeb which prompted me to read what you've been up to lately. Things are really bad in here. It took me several attempts to just favor your comment. Luckily we live in a free society.”

“Nice hearing from you! Admittedly I purchased a tablet sometime ao and while convenient, it makes posting on this site quite difficult. I hope all is well!”
“I think you misstated your point. A lot of people are unaware that after the first 100,000 dollars or so of income, there is no additional SS withheld. in other words, people making over 1,000,000 dollars a year only play social security in the month of January.”

“I misstated nothing.
I'm well aware of the scope of current SS taxes. I've paid the maximum possible SS tax for 30 years.
A person's SS benefit is directly related to their lifetime SS tax payments. Those who pay more taxes over time receive higher monthly benefits than those who contribute less.
So, the premise that removing the cap on income subject SS tax will allow benefits to rise in general is false as only those paying the increased taxes will receive higher benefits.”
This was the last comment that HP sent to my email. For some reason, subsequent comments have not been sent. I have your comments bookmarked now. Keep up the good work. Those "jealous" forces wish they could keep you silent.”
“Hi Genders. I'm disappointed with HPs ability to forward me your posts. When I went to look over your recent comments, since the last one was about "how much do gas stations cost?", all the replies to you seem to be relentless badgering. God bless you for your tireless efforts to inform and educate. This place has become quite toxic. Good luck!”

The US contribution can be like that sometimes.”
“I like HTSCs too, but the wiki link you gives little info on the subject. Wiki sites liquid hydrogen (normal superconductors) which are difficult to refrigerate.
"In the more distant future the voltage loss of current methods could be avoided using experimental superconducting "SuperGrid" technology where the transmission cable is cooled by a liquid hydrogen pipeline which is also used to move energy nationwide."
I'm holding out for metalic hydrogen room temperature super conductors.
“I find it curious that there are no comments questioning the actual capture and subsequent killing of OBL. Conflicting reports as to what happened; Body buried at sea; No photos released; No autopsy; No trial; Large portion of Seal Team 6 killed in a helicopter crash shortly thereafter;
I find it difficult to believe that no one else shares my skepticism.”

“That's because your "skepticism is actually lunacy and not real.”
