Are You Serious?

 Seriously, I have never read a more literally retarded Bloomberg headline:

Tokyo Electric Sawdust Solution Fails to Stop Radiation Leak

"Tokyo Electric Power Co.’s attempt to clog a cracked pit with a mixture of sawdust, newspaper and plastic failed to stop radioactive water leaking into the sea from its crippled nuclear plant."

Really? There was someone who seriously thought this would work? Maybe we could all stand around and stick our fingers in the hole to plug it. Have the smart guys at Tokyo Electric considered that one?

Reality is worse than the Onion.

  1. Oh, and as is typical in such instances, Bloomberg has conveniently changed the article to seem less embarrassing to TEP Co. Here is the link to the new, updated article, as the one above comes from Yahoo cache:
