A Different Kind of Nuclear Wessel

A Russian nuclear energy company plans to build a giant floating nuclear power plant to service cities along the Arctic coast.

With Russia being the world leader in nuclear safety and all, my first question is "What could possibly go wrong?" My second question is whether it will have a little bell on it like an ice cream truck so people will know when it's coming. "Is next, radiation!" (ding ding ding) "Very nice!" (bell melts spontaneously)

"Maybe it will turn out great" is not the most ringing expert endorsement I have heard for something like this. Although I am sure the barge will be greeted with candy and flowers.

PS - This is post number 200. Huzzah!
