Washington state worker slides down sewer pipe

UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. – Officials in Washington state say a 37-year-old worker came loose from a safety line and slid about 3,000 feet through a large sewer pipe at a wastewater treatment plant.
Authorities say the man was working on the sewer system at the plant and was about 150 feet below ground. He slid through a pipe that's about six feet in diameter.
Firefighters and co-workers pulled the man, a contractor for Pierce County Public Works and Utilities, to safety on Monday. He appeared to have minor injuries and was taken to an area hospital for further evaluation.

they asked what was bliss
many said it was ignorance
I say it was
a fish fillet burger with a large fries and a coke


fellow earth mates, lets face it, if something keeps us going through our hectic not so liked lives, then its FOOD. Our ancestors have worked so hard developing mouth flooding recipes out of the same old wheat, meat , rice, vegetables. Beautiful how when combined in specific proportions , they prepare into our wonders.

be it chinese

or Indian

or Italian

or maybe even typically continental


We all are living because of it. for it. Till it . And on a very personal note... I don't give a damn about these veg guys trying to convince us non-veg ones against deep frying a chicken and enjoy it dissolve into our mouths. What reason would have god made a deer if lion was not permitted to eat it??? What good are our natural canines if they keep chewing grass for the entire little human lifetime?
Life is short mates, so let chicken make it heaven for you.


In a crisis, reactors automatically shut down. Control rods are inserted between fuel rods to prevent further reactions. But they're all still very hot and emanating heat. During this time, the reactor needs to be continuously cooled — and that is done by using water, draining out the steam, putting fresh water, etc. This process needs some power, which wasn't there with Japan's electricity gone due to the Tsunami reaction, and the limited capacity of backup generators. The process is now being carried out by supplying water from the ocean, even that is steaming up so fast that water levels are dangerously low.
Three explosions have since occurred at the plant, attributed to hydrogen reacting with air; hydrogen is produced when the fuel rod cladding reacts with water. That is not a bad sign if there is no breach of the primary containment vessel inside which the reactor is housed. (The secondary, or external, containment structure is designed to burst on high pressure, to protect the primary or inner shell) Reports are scarce, but we don't know of any breach in the primary containment structure.
