(Photo) Contaminated Water Leak at Reactor 4 Turbine Building at #Fukushima I Nuke Plant: Kanaflex Hoses and Duct Tape

This is a photograph that TEPCO released, showing the location of leak, in Reactor 4 turbine building, of the highly contaminated water from Reactor 3 turbine building basement. For more details of the leak, see my previous post.

From TEPCO's press release on August 14, 2012:

According to Asahi and other news sources, the amount of contaminated water leaked was 4.2 tonnes. TEPCO announced 77,000 becquerels/cubic centimeter of radioactive cesium was in the water.

Priceless image.
These professionals are worse than DIYers, if considering the sheer quantities of duct tape used.

There was another priceless image today, too.
When I look at this image (link: http://photo.tepco.co.jp/library/120814_02/120814_03.JPG ) I wonder whether Tepco cares of electric codes.
I don't know of Japanese electric codes, but the installation won't be acceptable with US NEC or German rules. Maybe it was a suicide protest of the motor? :)

Would you please put my blog in your bloglist so that people can use the product I'm promoting to help them be more well when exposed to radiation? The address is: fallout-protection.blogspot.com. I've got your blog on my list. Keep up the good work!

Quite funny Paul. Well, I guess business is business... I just hope your pills don't kill more than they protect and are funnier than they ought to be!

It reminds me of a story about a so called "cancer cure" using sharks cartilage. The pills contained so much other craps than poor shark's cartilage that it was actually cancerous.

Anybody from Kiwiland who would wear a Gilligan cap has to be a standup guy! Surely not a slimy snake-oil spammer. On second thought...Dixon... Take your idiot pills and shove them all where the sun don't shine. You would profit off selling your children's organs to make your car payment.

Go away and sin elsewhere.
