Lost in translation

Current status: 

Getting my notes together for an exciting course I get to teach during theme days at a Comprehensive College in Keflavík (Fjölbrautarskóli Suðurnesja) on electromagnetic energy weapons. The issue is not lack of knowledge of the topic… I mean… I’ve done a BIT of research into it… It’s more that I’ve never actually had to write or talk about it in Icelandic. 

So now I’m basically lost in translation. 

Explosive Flux Compression Generator? 

Virtual Cathode Oscillator? 

Anyone? 

No?

I just had a Miss Piggy fanatic “ahhhhh” reaction when I saw this. 
Must. Have. 
There must be something in the water because I’m being girly.

My new favorite thing on the internet. -

Especially this part:

As of yet, this is an untested method, but as soon as I fully assemble
a HERF pulse cannon, I'll be taking a drive up to Redmond to see how well
it really works. On the Micro$hit building!

Nuclear power plants live along fault lines

As recent events have shown in Japan, nuclear power plants are just as  vulnerable to natural disasters as anything else. So here at Sunlight we  were curious about the locations of domestic nuclear reactors. Using  data from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the U.S. Geological  Survey, we generated the following map, which shows the location of the  aforementioned reactors (there are 104 of them) vis-a-vis geological  fault lines. We also included locations of significant historical  earthquakes. Take a look and see if we might be vulnerable to a nuclear  disaster if/when “the big one” hits, and click on the red dots to learn  more about each nuclear power plant.
