That is one of the stupidist comments that I have seen on topix, and there is a lot of competition.

Well Mr. Pronuclear Activist aka 'koz': You have apparently lived an oh so limited life-you really need to get out more-you also face stiff competition in the 'stupid' department.

Be nice Koz, Northstaridiot is too stupid to realize that cancer deaths don't affect the cancer incidence rate.

She really is an embarrassment.

It's nice to see Vt's key radiological health official, William Irwin, making cute little "red herring" jokes about a dangerous radioactive material showing up in our fish.
It's unconscionable that there has never been any baseline testing since the day the plant was built. Here we have an old nuke plant legally (but immorally) spewing tritium out of the stacks every day for 38 years. Now it's leaking radioactive material into the river, yet our own health official says that the radiation found in a fish might come from somewhere else. Right, but it might also be coming from a plant that according to the press has been leaking for years.
Rep. David Deen is correct. This plant is ruining Vermont's image as an environmentally safe state. But not to worry, because Entergy is making a ton of money while ruining our state's reputation. There's always an upside.
Just like the oil spill, the costs will be put to the community, who'll pay with their livelihoods, way of life etc. Minimal benefit to community by allowing a defunct town to be on life support a few more years and maximal benefit/minimal risk to Entergy. I can't believe their are people in support of this plant, let's here some rational justification about why trashing VT image is worth the jobs the plant provides and just 2% of the regions energy. We NEED to start conserving energy, that 2% is a good place to start.

I do not care who supports me.

I see not many wish to be associated w/you, except for those who share your creepy traits.

I do not always agree w/estanson, however he and the majority of commenters learned to be civil likely in kindergarten, something you have never learned and likely ever will.

I now have learned the true meaning of the word pathetic-many thanks. Narcisisstic sociopaths come w/built in limitations.

Here are some links, so you can see what you missed. Remember its never too late to have a happy childhood!:

Here is a good place to start if you are actually interested in learning instead of just insulting other people who have actually bothered to read about a subject before posting.

You have annexed yourself from any discussion. Your links nothing but rabbit holes and a waste of time. They never prove anything and designed to disrupt & detract. I am not listening so you are wasting your time. You had a chance but blew it sky high from jumpstreet w/your crude and rude behavior.

You are a troll and that is all. What I said was not incorrect-but a different part of the picture, and just not seeing it from your pov. So keep trying to make your silly points and salve you bruised ego. I am not listening.

Act like a child, you will likely be treated as one.

You have no evidence to support either premise. I would never claim to be a genius, but my capabilities, education and knowledge put me in the top ten percent of the nation, at least.

I have no reason to doubt nor believe this. There are other things more valuable than IQ and university education. There are many educated fools.

Behavior of those who claim to be highly intelligent proves, or disproves this.

Consciousness, common sense, discernment and being able to communicate knowledge effectively at least as, and perhaps far more important.

Wisdom, knowledge and understanding, the foundation. Having a high IQ or schooling alone is not a substitute.
