What have you invented?

It was a male brain (belonging to a person who dropped out of school) who came up with the Theory of Relativity. Why has no female brain come up with such a thing?

That was the result of fautly risk assesment. If you are always cheery and endlessly optimistic, chirping birds will sing along with you as you skip down the flowery, sunlit path. You will also get lulled into making fatal errors like " That won't happen to me." or "That can't happen, here."

Yep, it's called "hubris". When we do or build things in regards to natural events, we seem to have an attitude of "What's the worst that can happen?" Well, mother nature has nasty way of demonstrating exactly the worst that can happen.
New Orleans was a prime example of that. The berms and dykes around the city were supposed to be something like 20 or 30 feet taller than they were but some bean-counter, in a bid to save money, decided to reduce the height because, "What are the chances of a CAT 5 hurricane slamming into NOLO?" Nature heard and responded, "Pretty damn high."

"Tsunami? Hunh? How do you say that in Japanese?"


Any reactor design that requires emergency cooling water to be pumped uphill during a crisis by electric motors is inherently dodgy and shouldn't have made it on the first design draft.

Blame those cheap, generic G.E. reactors that the Yanks sold-door-to-door, back then.

no, the original engineers quit over it...they repaced those guys with toadies
the fukushima you got IS the second opinion

Einstein's wife did all the math dude
shows how much your male brain is off by

'...Did Einstein's First Wife Secretly Coauthor His 1905 Relativity Paper?

Various historians have concluded that Einstein’s first wife, Mileva, may have secretly contributed to his work. Now a new analysis seeks to settle the matter.

Walker reignited this controversy in his Physics Today article. He suggests that Einstein may have stolen his wife’s ideas. "

Um, the facility is right on the coast at shore level. Why would they need to pump cooling water uphill?

They did. They pump their emergency cooling water from the ocean uphill to the reactor core. The core is not below the sea level. Those pumps failed to operate after being knocked out by the tsunami and the cores melted down.They are still radioactive lava. I wonder what the "China Syndrome" is for a Japanese reactor? ... the "Africa" syndrome?

Take a good look at a CANDU reactor. There is a huge water tank above the core and if emergency core cooling is needed, gravity does the job. The downside is that you have to build a much bigger, stronger building over your reactor that can hold a small lake but when you consider the consequences of having to pump water up to the core, ...

The word Philosophy comes from the Greek words Philo-Sophia which means "Love of Wisdom.". "Sophia meaning Wisdom". The word "wisdom" being female in origin.
