yup, remember "Why I am not worried about Japan’s nuclear reactors – From MIT’s Dr. Josef Oehmen"?

guess the events just passed too quickly for a supportive thread on skeptics.stackexchange  :·>

There is more to Bitcoin than bitcoins.

Fukushima disaster happened, and the world hasn't ended. Chernobyl blew up, and the world did not end either. In fact, between these two nuclear disasters (that did cause evident damage and even death), all of us were exposed on everyday basis to the fallout from coal burning plants worldwide - from mercury to uranium to thorium - which again caused damage and even death, and to the much greater extent than those two nuclear accidents combined. Again, the world is still here. Throughout the history there have been nuclear blasts, volcanoes, pandemics, stupidity, meteorites, floods, enormous fires, landscape-changing earthquakes, industrial disasters, yet life goes on. My message to OP: have a drink and don't worry. Do what you can to make things better, but don't try to do more than that.

A good way to get exceedingly wealthy is to trade millions of personal tragedies (cancers, birth defects, etc) distributed throught a large population for a concentrated reward that ends up in the pockets of you and a small group of similar friends.  For an added bonus, reduce down the tax burden (aka 'financial violence') to zero, or even better, get the plebs to subsidize you with their taxes.  Such a sweet deal, when achieved, is well worth fighting to maintain.

Good point, though it just struck me that this is a chaotic thread that in reality has nothing to do with Bitcoin. I'm out of here.

As the OP of this thread, I will admit right now that almost nothing could be more unrelated to bitcoin than fukushima's troubled reactor 4 so I apologise. I think I really just wanted to get some opinions and insight from the really smart people in the bitcoin community on the problem. looks like the bitcoin hive mind has uses beyond just contemplating future bitcoin applications.   

If there is a way for me or an admin to move this whole thread elsewhere then that should be be done as it does not belong here. Though I would like to continue this conversation else where. Thanks for the great comments.

3) The best way to prevent this from happening, is to convince the world to change its monetary system so quickly that Bitcoins become extremely valuable, and then we just convince everyone holding Bitcoins to donate a little bit, and then those funds will be used to clean up the site quickly and take appropriate safety precautions. This is beyond absurd.

So we have Unlikely + Unlikely + Beyond Absurd = good idea???

I can only assume this was a well-presented joke and as such it is pretty funny Smiley

Just imagine there would be a single place, like a forum, where the worlds richest, wealthiest, smartest, etc. would congregate and collectively decide to use their power for any specific purpose!
These people could then discuss their ideas and plans and everybody could be part of it.
Would such thing be really that absurd? I hope you see where I'm trying to go here...
