FrickFrock, I'm pretty sure they have those Buenos at World Market. At least, I recall seeing them at that newer one near, what, Roosevelt and Clark?

edit: Dear god, it's Helios One.

That's true, there's a newer one that opened up in Lincoln Park.

They had tons of good stuff at the one near me in Orland, then they closed it. Those euro Kit Kats were incredible.

Nuclear is still cheaper

Not in the US, when you factor in the billions of dollars it takes in graft, corruption and payola that the lobbyists will spend on obtaining a "license". All of this ends up doubling the price of the plant, and that is if the "Ecology" people don't derail the process for extra decades.

Of course, in Canada, the plants end up being built by the lowest bidder with inferior materials, so the price of any plant ends up quadruple the price, and with twice as much downtime as uptime. But then again, Canada is professional at derailing stuff like wind turbines or solar because you know, they can even screw up a regular, gas fired power plant because of rampant NIMBYism and stupidity, not to mention the payola and mafia payouts...

All in all, a good idea that would help us out with energy brown outs during summer, but what it won't cure is idiots who waste energy needlessly like leaving their porch light on all day and night, and leave their TV on all the time.
or leave their computer on 24/7.

Well i would think nuclear would be a good idea to get coal gone for good, and switch to nuclear. But in California, everyone raves about how nuclear is horrible, and since California regulates every business to the point of alienating them. I would think a nuclear plant in California to be impossible, because of all the hippies whining why we don't live in grass huts, and live off of eating shrubberies like them!

The thing that really bothers me, isn't the people who think nuclear power plants are evil, but that cell phones emit radiation that kills humans! I find this to be laughable at best.

I'm shocked they're doing it so soon, in just a year construction will hopefully begin.

I like this idea, double time energy!
We're eating stuff that provides us electricity. It tastes so good .
