The U.S. Really Needs to Recycle it's Radioactive Waste. Here's Why.
You could also have a Plutonium core surrounded by radium encased in Beryllium so the alpha emissions from the radium could produce neutrons to fission the Plutonium. And surrounding that would be more Plutonium and surrounding that could be Thorium with shavings of Plutonium in it to help boost reactions. I'm not sure if I explained this well enough but I hope I did.

If parents showed more of themselves, would kids develop better, healthier coping skills?
My parents have always been kind of hard on me. But I learn from that to not be a complete snot. They never really talk to me about drugs or self injury but I'm smart enough to keep myself from doing such things. I know how to cope with life without the aid of my parents. But, I agree with you that this Is a pretty big issue and not all kid's are like me. I think the only problem is getting the word out about this since I personally believe that parents opening up to their children would save a lot of kid's from going down the wrong path.

Are there any teens on this site?
It really is annoying isn't it. What's even worse, is that I see other intelligent kids get sucked into the whole "gangster" /"fashion" trend and they start to ruin themselves as well. I just tell myself that it's people like you and me that make the future work. That's what keeps me buy. I also want to go to Harvard someday, but that may be big wishing. Never the less, that hope is what keeps me curious and willing to learn. In case you were wondering, since you are Chilean, Harvard is the best, top of the line university in the United States. Who knows, maybe my wish will come true. I live in a small town, so there aren't to many people like me, but there are still some and that's also another factor that keeps me going.

Des any one think that the U.S. and China will ever go to war?
The Chinese would never just transition right then and their. Even of they decided to (which will never happen) it would take years to make any difference because you would have campaigns. The Chinese government doesn't want power for it's people and it's going to stay that way. If the Chinese people had power and knew what was going on in the world, there would be revolutions, and the Chinese government obviously won't let that happen.

Des any one think that the U.S. and China will ever go to war?
The U.S. and China will never co exist because china is still a communist country and the U.S. is obliviously a democracy. The reason I ask this question is because I believe that china is trying to commence in economic warfare and one day the government may come to it's senses and stop this at once. The way we can stop china is to cut off trade to it for about six months so that we can collapse it's economy. Unfortunately, this isn't being done. It would only benefit America. It would bring the American economy up to the top again.
