Nuclear Freakin' Roadways
« on: June 11, 2014, 02:45:47 AM »
Nuclear Freakin' Roadways - what are they?

Roads with embedded nuclear reactors in them.

Advantages:

- turns roads that are just taking up space being regular roads into a nuclear power source
- Forget about ice and snow on these roadways, not even water will accumulate as it instantly vaporizes
- blue glow illuminates roadways 24/7. Nothing more Tron-like than Cherenkov radiation!
- car undercarriages will only need 2-3 inches of lead shielding

But do you use recycled coloured glass that you personally shoveled onto a wheelbarrow, despite it being inappropriate for the purpose?

Better. Nuclear roadways use recycled nuclear waste for paving material.

Thus could also help solve the jaywalking epidemic.
If you are going to DebOOonK an expert then you have to at least provide a source with credentials of equal or greater relevance. Even then, it merely shows that some experts disagree with each other.

Is it harmful for animals to cross? Can I ride my bike on it? What happens if an earthquake or sinkhole breaks the road?

If by animals you mean archaea, and if by archaea you mean thermococcus gammatolerans, then no!

Can I ride my bike on it?

With lead wheels and this fancy attire you sure can!

What happens if an earthquake or sinkhole breaks the road?

The impending apocalypse will finally have a date: Now!

Not at all! Nuclear roadways are extremely durable and can withstand animal crossings easily.

If it's a nuclear powered bike with proper shielding, yes.

It's recommended that you choose an alternate route until Nuclear Roadways Engineers and Nuclear Roadways Lawyers have fixed the damage.

I like this idea but I don't see how it helps fight terrorism.

If you can't see that Nuclear Roadways = freedom then the terrorists have already won.  :(

Radiation only kills the weak cells, the strong cells survive. This is why radiation therapy kills cancer but only sometimes kills the patient. The strong patient always lives.

The patient that dies is only made up of weak cells.

Okay, guys, I think we need to clear the freakin' air, so here we go:


False claim: Nuclear roadways are bad for you.

Haha, no. That'd be just silly, you silly goose. Freakin' nope.


False claim: Nuclear roadways are more radioactive than asphalt.

Now, this one is just hilarious. Obviously, our answer is "no".


False claim: Nuclear roadways would be expensive.

u wot m8? Roads are cheap, and nuclear power will make them literally negative cost!

Also cars won't need heavy cumbersome nuclear power plants, they can simply connect to the nuclear power rail beneath their wheels. This means cars will be lighter and safer! Awesome!

This is stupid. What if I need to off-road? Or I want a car-boat convertible? My 2500MW chernobyl class reactor will stay in my vehicle, thanks.

This is just prototype first round funding. Please stop hating and send me millions dollars.
