We have seen the future, and it sucks.

A Nuclear Reactor in Every Home

31st July 2011

Read it.

Sometime between 2020 and 2040, we will invent a practically unlimited energy source that will solve the global energy crisis. This unlimited source of energy will come from thorium. A summary of the benefits, from a recent announcement of the start of construction for a new prototype reactor:

• There is no danger of a melt-down like the Chernobyl reactor.
• It produces minimal radioactive waste.
• It can burn plutonium waste from traditional nuclear reactors.
• It is not suitable for the production of weapon grade materials.
• Global thorium reserves could cover our energy needs for thousands of years.

    Now we’ll have a way to charge our electric flying cars!

    Why charge them? Shrink the suckers small enough that we can put them IN our flying cars!
    Yeah, dude, that would be like WAY AWESOME!
