But Where Is The Lumber Jack?

a: Fission ~
b: a logger

What: "Very simply, fission is like a logger. It splits a massive element into fragments, releasing energy in the process. Otto Frisch named the effect "nuclear fission: because of its resemblance to biological fission -- cell division. Fission itself is a nuclear process which does not usually occur naturally in nature. (That we are aware of.)"

Hamer On!

a: Fission ~
b: a hammer to Humpty Dumpty

What: "Fission is like a hammer to Humpty Dumpty. Fission is like putting Humpty Dumpty back together and then making him give you all of his Gold. Fission is like an out-breathe... Fusion is like an in-breathe."

Downhill Train W/o Breaks.....

a: Fission ~
b: train running downhill

What: "This is the essential problem with fission. Fission is like a train running downhill, if the brakes fail it runs away. Fusion is the opposite. Private companies see a meltdown as a cost of doing business. If it's cheaper to compensate than avoid that is what they will do. Xeon fought the valdez fines all the way to the high court and the legal bills ended up a fraction of the fines, and of course they are tax deductable. Watch BP do the same trick. Ask the Alaskan fishermen how well they cmae out of that."
