20. So, can you show me any other nuclear facility, built in the late '60's, early '70's
That doesn't have the sort of airlocks I describe? No, I didn't think so, because such containment building airlocks were standard at that time, especially in GE designed plants, which is what Fukushima is

Get it? Or am I still engaged in "speculation".
