What a shitty headline

    According to a headline on the website of the daily newspaper where I toiled for 16 years, a local nuclear power generation facility has "shit" rather than shut down one of its reactors.

    Bruce Power shits down unit temporarily

    No idea whether this headline will actually make the print edition, which won't hit the streets until mid-morning. Oh God, I hope so!!!

    I doubt it will last very long online, though, which is why I'm really glad that some enterprising (not to mention handsome and charming) Facebooker took and posted a picture of it for posterity's sake. :)


    I'm gonna laugh my ass off about this for a LOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time. :D ;D :D ;D :D

    I love that Bruce Power looks like someone's name.

    And as of this post, it's still up.
  3. Hey, give Mr. Power a break. We've all been in his shoes before. When you gotta go and all.

    But right in the reactor? That there takes planning. This was premeditated, I say.

    Shitting all down your unit, though......no matter how much you scrubbed it, you still wouldn't be able to keep a straight face next time your SO (or someone else) was down there.

    Bruce Power - so named because it's located in Bruce Township, Bruce County, Ontario.

    I love it because the CEO is a Scotsman with a really thick brogue, and every time you hear him say the word "power," all you can picture is Scotty from Star Dreck - "I dewwn't heff the PEEOWER!!"

    He's probably related to Max Power.

    Fixed. Kinda sad. Like the shit down, was only temporary.
