Nuclear energy as a negative character

Nuclear energy as a negative character
In televison, nuclear is not the context but the antagonist. It becomes a demon: It is constantly talked about, its nature endlessly debated and described.

And that demon terrifies people, because it could happed again one day.

Radiation is not contagious. Once someone has removed their clothes and been washed, the radioactivity is internalized.

After nuclear disasters, hospitals do isolate radiation victims behind plastic screens, but that's because their immune systems have been weakened and they are at risk of being exposed to something they can’t handle

TV shows get nuclear wrong

Television gets nuclear wrong not only for dramatic effects, but for the same reason humankind as a whole has been getting it wrong for over 60 years, which is that we’ve displaced our fears of nuclear weapons onto nuclear power plants.

The safest way to make electricity

Nuclear is actully the safest way to make electricity. In the worst nuclear power accidents, relatively small amounts of particulate matter escape, harming only a handful of people.

During the rest of the time, nuclear plants emit no carbon dioxide and are reducing exposure to air pollution, by replacing fossil fuels and biomass.

Seinfeld changed the way sitcom stories are written. Until then, most sitcoms had A-story and a B-story, and a joke continued throughout the episode and told a very loose story but didn’t do much more than that.

Seinfeld didn't follow that pattern, because every character has their own storyline, all four of which converge in the final moments to create a whole that’s larger than its parts.

The black hole’s center is like a dark future which cannot be seen, so no one knows what is beyond the tiny point that looks like a giant ball to the person going in. It’s almost like one is landing to the surface of a dark planet, which looks like a black geometric sphere with no features.

Nothing escapes the black hole, but it would be nice if something else is on the other side.
