So in HBO's popular miniseries Chernobyl, a scientist says that if the corium from reactor 4 melts down into the water filled bubbler pools, it will produce a steam explosion of between "2 and 4 megatons", destroying everything within "a 30 kilometre radius".

My question is this: does that even make sense? How is that possible? Even if the steam explosion caused the other RBMK reactors to explode somehow, why would they explode with so much more energy than reactor 4?
No. 22876
And a 4 megaton bomb also isnt capable of doing that much damage anyway

A Finnish nuclear expert on Helsingin Sanomat said that it coudn't have happened. Don't know if he was right.

The tunnel under the rector is real so they were afraid of something.

They're afraid of a further meltdown that will burn through the ground and pollute the water table. That absolutely will poison the land for many kilometers. IIRC it's actually they're biggest concern, beyond even a buildup of steam and another blowout aerosolizing more radioactive material like Chernobyl 2.0

You are gifted by God and become the monarch of the country. While you are intially successful something comes up and the only way you can get yourself out of the situation is to successfully invade Russia and conquer its territories. How would you go about invading Russia and how would you do it throughout the entire campaign. Is it even possible?
No. 22999
This is fucking stupid. All of Russia won't "fall like dominoes" just because you take Moscow.
No. 23007
Russia is very weak without Moscow. And nobody on the West, ironically, was able to really conquer it. Napoleon did “conquer” it but was then repulsed by a fire lit on the town and had to leave. From my recollection the only people who were able to conquer it were the Poles and the Mongols. They reaped many benefits from doing it, and weren’t resisted much by the rest of the Russians once they took it.
No. 23012
I'm pretty sure all that would happen is a bunch of outraged Russians would wait until it gets cold to steamroll you from across the urals and from all their industrial centers along the southern border, encircle Moscow, siege it, and then push you back out after half the survivors have eaten the other half to avoid starving to death.

As for the idea of a naval blockade...fucking lol. It is fucking Russia. Just think of all the border troubles say US has with interdicting things and people from Mexico. Now multiply that by like 20 and make it a dozen nations instead of just one. I don't think Russiand even rely on naval based imports much at all to begin with. You'd have to bomb the rail and to do that you're going to somehow need to form a coalition with fucktons of Central Asian countries, Caucasus, and butthurt belters to all agree on letting you somehow try to police flow of supplies into Russia. Oh yeah, and also China, which is responsible for I think the bulk of Russian foreign business relations particularly materials.

You'd need to not just capture Moscow and st Petersburg but also a bunch of cities all along the southern edge, which has been centers of everything from major industry to Russian space program to secret weapons labs since the Soviets. If you took the southern rim along with the entire West of Russia then yeah, you could probably conquer Russia enough that what's left in the interior couldn't do much but guerilla raids.

Old one deda so there is new one.

Found out there is new game in "space horror" genre - what do you think about it? Looks like it inspired by movie gravity and alien isolation game or something

There also probably still Morrowind free for 25 TES anniversity in bethesda store, but I don't think anybody care about bethesda store and don't have morrowind from gog or other source already.

Did my first case 3 trap today. It was a 4 wire (hook caught the last arresting wire on the deck) so not great, but a trap is a trap at the end of the day, and a 4 wire is better than slamming into the back of the boat. That said, it was a pretty easy case 3, and would only be considered such in real life. Visibility was pretty good due to the full moon so in practical terms it was more of a case 2 but I'll take the technical victory there :-D

Alien Isolation was honestly so scary, I could not play beyond 3 or 4 hours into the game. It was seriously terrifying which is nothing I've ever seen before in a game.

Can confirm, could not play.

In other news, the gameplay trailer[1] for Death Stranding is 110% Kojima and I love it. Kojima can finally spread his wings.

Yuri Gagarin. The first man in S-P-A-C-E, a total badass and, judging by the recollections of his friends and acquaintances, just a really cool dude in real life. He was not a general though, only colonel.

He tried to ambush, did everything right and was suddenly faced with an incredible dilemma. Unfortunately he chose the wrong path and his carrier group suffered severely.

He states all of what you said in the first chapter and yes humans have always been dependent on energy in some form.
But let's the say the mode of energy is really what makes the difference in how life turns out on this planet, including democracy when you want to follow Mitchells argument.

I have to say I only made it the quarter into the book, it seems to be more interesting in the second half, when its about the age of oil after ww2, so far I got up to the times around WW1 and between the world wars, when oil started lift off more or less. But I have to quit since I have more important things to read and to work on, sadly.

Well to be perfectly honest, in my humble opinion, of course without offending anyone who thinks differently from my point of view, but also by looking into this matter in a different perspective and without being condemning of one's view's and by trying to make it objective, and by considering each and every one's valid opinion, I honestly believe that I completely forgot what I was going to say.

Not in the everyday. Usually it's just by whatever place you're from. It simply explains our local neighbourhood as a distinct entity better than the more common 'APAC' does. I would use Australasian but that's just bound to cause confusion :-DDD. Australia, New Zealand and the South-West Pacific Islands tend to have a lot of contact. It's a common joke to say that at any given time there are more Samoans in South Auckland than there are in Samoa.

>But again, I wouldn't say that the differences were that grave, I'd say the differences between people of the same nation are bigger than the overall differences between two nations.

I'd agree with this. Even when I ended up in a relationship with a Japanese girl she became a normalish working class girl once the local culture had rubbed off on her :^)

I mean, your girlfriend is going to do annoying girlfriend stuff no matter and you're still going to be her assburglary man. You're just trading cultural bonds for interesting conversation by being a xenophile.

This thread is dedicated to multiple things mainly self defense and improvement of health. One of the major benefits of exercise is that it boosts up your confidence and helps you contain your hatred for the world. I know because it helped me slightly but moreso God helped with that. The main thing exercise should be done for is for the benefit of the individual and for the protection of those precious to him. For while we live in dark times I believe there will be a better future. if you believe in God and I believe taking care of one of the many gifts of God is a good place to start.

A man's body is made in the likeness of God it is supposed to represent the love God has for his creation that he made it in his own image. Thus it should be up to the individual to keep the body up to a respectable standard for God. For God dislikes the lazy which admittedly I still struggle with. If you only lift for women your doing it wrong. Wanting women through exercising is nothing more than a selfish desire to nab a virtous women simply surrender yourself to God and he will guide you into the light.

I advise against using weights. God gave you a body train it through intense bodyweight exercises. Afterall there is no greater tool in a man's arsenal than his own body. Bodyweight has numerous benefits like more flexability, convenience and its completely free unlike weights while yielding similar or even better results if you become dedicated. God will always be with you and he can guide you to a better future if you put your faith in him that he sent his son who died on the cross for your salvation.

>Another thing we should discuss is dieting. Out of many things this will be the most difficult because of the amount of stress it will be for many for quitting many foods that they enjoy. Either way I suggest eating a large amount of berries, wholewheat bread, dairy products, Meat, fruit and vegetables
I once went from 140kg down to 95kg just from cutting a few things out and going for a walk every evening, this took a year in total. Towards the end of it I never even felt hungry even though I lived on soup and soda-bread snacks and a small homecooked dinner every day. Water was pretty important too, drinking a pint of water the minute you wake up is a very good practice to have.

Oh jesus don't go down that route man. I thought only American fundies believed in young earth Creationism? And those people are often otherwise godless.
It was something like this, which is not hard to see how after a hundred thousand years of mutations could become a sort of land dwelling lizard. The problem is most of these people are frankly just too stupid to be able to conceptualize what a hundred million years would even be like. To them it's just words. 6000 years is the maximum their tiny brains seem capable of imagining and even that I doubt they have any capacity to conceptualize. Stay away from some of the doctrines of these heretics.

You don't even need to believe in creationism to see the ridiculousness of evolution. The idea that millions of the animals evolved to have the exact same features. Eyes, hair/scales/feathers, wings, legs, teeth, spine, similar brain receptors and similar cells. Evolution hampers research into genuine biology. That isn't even getting into the probablity of a successful mutation actually occuring.

It's called convergent evolution. It's believed to be why so many different animals developed poison, because it's evolutionarily advantageous.

> Eyes, hair/scales/feathers, wings, legs, teeth, spine, similar brain receptors and similar cells.
Most of those come from common ancestors you dimwit. Eyes for example developed hundreds of millions of years ago.

I would just like to add, that I'm probably way more of what some might call a fanatic or fundamentalist than I let on. I've probably gone on tirades before here or KC that you've seen, can't remember, and my underlying ideology is apocalyptic Christian fundamentalism that sees Revelation as being literally and metaphorically true (since it outright says things are parable and metaphor in places) and the genuine truth of our future and think no law is valid except God's law.

So far I've wasted this day too. Decided to change my default browser to Palemoon, since Firefox decided to randomly block all of my extensions, and I'm not going to use the internet without adblock.
Though it was a bit annoying to set everything up, since the dictionaries for the spellchecker are out of date, and I had to get a direct download link to the Firefox servers (because on their site only Firefox users can download add-ons), and then modify that to the different locations the dictionaries I wanted were in. (Not to mention I had to use older ones instead of the newest versions.)
But in the end, I got all the dictionaries I wanted. (Though I can't get rid of this English-US dictionary.)

It's still raining. I felt that feeling of anxiety again.

Yesterday my mother offered me some money if I were to seriously go out and clean up the garden for real. 1.5 Euros an hour is really good. She offered me the same "wage" I get while working my data entry job. Turned her down. I can't accept that. I'd feel guilty. (Though I still feel guilty.)

I'd definitely go for something far-eastern (Chinese or Japanese). Or Russian.
