11. Ow well... back to the irrational.

And you were making such progress!

I see you think the fuel pools are intact and never exploded,

So does pretty much everyone else. The videos from inside the pools showing them intact and unexploded certainly help.

even tho you do say the water boiled off. Hmmm

And I guess I have to correct this error once again? I didn't say that ALL of the water boiled off... and you're incorrect to assume that fuel explodes when it hits the air. Repeating the ridiculous doesn't make it any more credible.

The only other items which could explode were the cores in the reactors. Thus you claim the reactor cores did indeed explode.

What on earth gave you that notion? That's the "only other items which could explode"? The cores didn't explode... they melted down, giving off hydrogen that had to be vented from containment. The vented hydrogen collected within the outer building shell (including some that vented from unit 3 over to unit 4) and eventually exploded. This isn't a made up theory as the half dozen or so you've invented this week... it's the consensus of pretty much every expert involved and has been for well over a year. Where have you been?

Prior to the first explosion it was a known and reported danger. It was one of the fears at Three Mile Island. This isn't news.
