LOL! "Shoe in for sure"

Really? So isotopes heat steam to turn a turbine to create energy? Wow, you must have a Nuclear physics degree.

Wow, if your so worried, go get a sign and stand out there in front of NTS. Quit your whining.

So you sat in a locked room with another man 60 feet underground, waiting for the big call. Wow, not much to do down there in that little room. Guess I don't want to know, since there were two of you in there.

So you waited to turn keys. And if you are educated in radioactive isotopes, then why are you crying about them burying this waste?

I could guess your resume. You don't have to be very intelligent to sign up for that job. You get more action as a security guard at a Justin Beiber concert.

And you don't have to name call or threaten with your manly kenpo karate quote. You're a liberal, you don't fight, you whine.

"As an ex-nuclear plant equipment operator and health physics tech, I can assure you that low level radioactive materials are good for Nevada"

Ok Bruce Carper, equipment operator? Was that your official job title? AKA Janitor at a nuclear facility. You know nothing about ionizing radiation.

Wow. It's amazing what people don't know. Nuclear waste doesn't "leak". Hollywood has the uneducated so jaded. Let me guess, this stuff glows bright green, and has noxious fumes coming off of it. This place is less hazardous than the air you are breathing right now.

I have been to the NTS on different occasions for training involving WMD, metering, monitoring and dirty bombs etc. Relax people. The real damage was caused during the Cold War, with all the thousands of Nuclear tests putting radioactive waste into the air and soil.

I knew this article would create a bunch of havoc and hype amongst the tree huggers and liberals. The sky isn't falling. Unless any of you are sneaking in and rolling around in the dirt at NTS, then you don't have anything to worry about. And if you still want to worry? Well, enjoy your miserable life.

Also, great reporting. There is a picture of a "Radioactive 7" placard. No such thing, it's called a shadow that looks like a 7.
