Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. two headed frogs?
  2. Oh ****...not what we need at all.
  3. Glow in the dark cheese?
  4. Oh well there goes any chance of us actually building the nuclear power stations we need. And I hope the French are more or less ok.

    The explosion appears to be in the waste processing facility and not in the reactor. So there will be a release of radioactivity, but its not a worst case scenario.

    I wonder if it was a hydrogen explosion (like the Japanese nuclear plants). Water gets low in storage tank, rods overheat, red hot rods break down water into hydrogen and oxygen...

    Sadly, there is one killed and three injured.

  6. Google translate of the Le Figaro article:

  7. Says it was a furnace that blew
  8. aw for fucks sake!

    it is just getting harder and harder to be an advocate of nuclear power these days.
  9. calm down....its only France!!!
  10. Le possibilités are endless!
  11. Yet we would be judging nuclear tech by ref to 70s technology.

    Why can't we build a nucclear reactor somewhere in the hebrides?
  12. or in Birmingham town center
  13. Or in Tower Hamlets?
  14. Because theres more than enough ****ing mutants there already thank you :)
