Q&A - the Definition of Stupidity

Q. What's the definition of stupidity?
A. Building nuclear power plants all over one of the most earthquake-prone countries in the world when you're sitting on a vast reservoir of free geothermal energy that you could use instead.

And a really bad joke:
Q. What do you call a tiny tsunami?
A. A microwave.

Yeah, I know, it's not funny. And incidentally, why is Iran so insistent that it needs to develop nuclear power when it's sitting on the world's fourth largest oil reserves? I think we can guess the answer to that one.

Wondering this morning if anyone else was rocked by the apocalyptic stupidity of building reactors on top of the tectonic plate subduction zone.
Thanks also for the reminder that the wars are sucking the coffers dry. Wonder if the Tea Party folks ever think about that. (Wasn't it the war in Afghanistan that broke Soviet Union?)
