Nuclear Boy

Thanks to Brian Porter for passing (ha!) this on to me.

Jokes -- and all that banjo music -- aside, I think this video does an adequate and truthful job explaining what's going on with Japan's ailing nuclear power plant. The fart/poo metaphor is apt, and the comparisons to Three Mile Island and Chernobyl are accurate. I like that the author of this work has taken to explain a complicated (and somewhat scary) concept in terms that are easily understandable as they are accurate.

The same, unfortunately, can't be said for the YouTube commentors on this particular video, so I'd be wary of reading too much into what they say.
