    Hope a reactor or fuel-pool doesn't go awry. If/when it does, what might happen? ..evacuations? .. or a helicopter dropping water? ..That should fix it, right?

    I guess the coriums weren't satisfied with causing quakes in the 4-5 range. Now they're picking up the kick. Are we going to see clusters of 5+ like we've seen with the 4+ swarms?

    At this rate, we'll be seeing 6+ clusters by next year. Lovely.
