“Massive leak” at nuclear plant after reactors contract “small pox” — Stunning Discovery: Contagion has spread all over critical structures — Multiple large cracks found — Experts befuddled… Literally a plot similar to a movie thriller

Hindustan Times, Mar 19, 2017 (emphasis added): A year after heavy water leaked from the coolant channel in unit I of the [India’s] Gujarat-based Kakrapar Atomic Power Station (KAPS-1), preliminary investigations have found corrosion spots on the channel’s outer surface, and through-wall cracks in it… On March 12, KAPS-1… underwent an automatic shut down at 9 am after a leak from its coolant system. Following this, a ‘plant emergency’ was declared.

Press Trust of India (India’s largest news agency), Mar 19, 2017: Scientists Probing How 2 Nuclear Reactors Contracted ‘Small Pox’ — In a highly guarded Indian nuclear reactor complex, toughened radiation resistant pipes have contracted ‘small pox’. As a consequence, literally in a plot similar to a Bollywood thriller Indian scientists are burning the midnight oil to unravel the mysterious nuclear leak at the Kakrapar Nuclear Power Plant… they are working over-time to find out the real cause of the cryptic leaks… Nuclear experts say pipes, made from a rare alloy, have contracted what seems like ‘small pox’ and this contagion has spread all over the critical tubes… [T]he teams of scientists really do not understand what has gone wrong. It was on the morning of March 11, 2016… [the] nuclear plant suffered a heavy water leak in its primary coolant channel and a plant emergency was declared… [An] initial probe using a specially designed tool revealed that four big cracks had formed on a coolant tube which led to the massive leak. The discovery of the crack was only the beginning of the mystery, further efforts to find the root cause established that the outside of the tube, the part which was not exposed to high temperature heavy water, was also for some unexplained reason “corroded”. This was a stunning discovery… [The AERB] discovered that the contagion of the “nodular corrosion” or what in layman’s language can also be described as “small pox-like” was very widespread in many of the 306 tubes… A further postmortem revealed that the Unit-2… had also been affected by a similar leak… almost ten months before the Unit 1 had a sudden appalling failure in March 2016… This literally back-to-back failure of two fully functional nuclear reactors befuddled the engineers… The international community is as much at a loss in explaining the failures…

      "..There exist no right NOT to be poisoned.."

      I consider it MY NATURAL RIGHT NOT TO BE POISSONED by my fellow species..i consider it my natural right not to bend over and take it any way they please to kill me and mine and SMILE ON COMMAND OF PURE EVIL..my natural right FAR FAR ABOVE that of a few single top predators within my own species to enrich themselves on the MURDER OF THE WHOLE LIFE DYNAMIC..to Gawdlike status and behind just because they can/can't stop..the occasional swampgas taking out a few futile percentages in the whole of evolution is as far as it goes naturally..

      Imaging how furious HUMANITY AS A WHOLE would respond to the sudden present of a BUG so viciously poisson/agressive it can alter/destroy both the DNA library for all generations after it, soil air water food destroyed and turned in to a deadly enemy forever ..render land uninhabitable forever all with one stroke etc like the capitalist top PREDATORS/PARASITES are doing AGAINST OUR CONSENT !

      As a human Eartling..it baffles me to the max we do not respond the same towards the elite that carefully crafted and finetuned an always push it further and further in to unnecessary overdrive economic system of slavery and planetary destruction/omnicide..because thats how it should be..that we respond like THEY ARE BUGS and rewrite the system they created for sustainability..

      You know..not because i like to kill..but because i/we have no choice AT ALL..and THAT IS THEIR CHOICE !!!

      • DUDe DUDe

        THEIR CHOICE..THEIR FUCKING KARMA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          Karmageddon bro, all the useless eaters, reliant on meat for instance, Standard American Diet, or hey, even oxygen (btw, maybe you can understand what real NDE and DMT is).

          They gonna bear a burden on their weakling abusive sympathetic systems. (I know, I quit that shit like overnight and it kinda makes you anxious and crazy). Not sure they'll like the eternal's return.

          • q Farthington MacMananus

            Paraphrasing a bit.

            "I am a slave, labouring into my grave. Read, bled and circumsized, born to entertain this system that they've made.

            I have served my country well, even if that meant trudging the very plains and pains of hell. The bombs fell all around me while the bodies piled, amassed.

            These horrific visions will not allow me to escape my past. I thought that I was fighting to keep my country free, to uphold values of justice and liberty. But now I see that those talking and savaging, lied to me, as I've only been fighting for the sake of a rich man's greed.

            Struggling under the weight of a debt I cannot pay. This world needs needs no more masters and no more slaves.

            These lingering insights that I'll never wash away.

            High above in their city tombs, they sit with the world in their hands. Nothing else on their minds, except to control every man, manipulating entertainment, religions and worried world advice. As they create their lies to serve armageddon vision, sense.

            Allowing the workhorses to believe, that their escape, poverty. Though, there hasn't been morals on their "talent" screens.

            We're slaves and strive for beauty, we're slaves and strive for fame, we're slaves and never get rid of some crap. Your, your invisible church.

            I am sick of your culture and weakness, tired of relgion and what you call Jesus. When will you realize there's noone to save us?"

            "
