WOW! Donna, sociopaths playing games with a nuclear reactor for “fun and games” to see just how far they could get…I hope to hell they died with radiation poisoning in the most painful way possible.

Some of these stories of what sociopaths do is just enough to almost STOP YOUR HEART, it is unbelievable and yet SO EASILY BELIEVED…that is the kind of thing that they would see as FUN! Sheesh!

In all my years reading about technical disasters I’d never heard that! But I can’t say I’m surprised.

I’ve worked with many versions of those guys (the Chernobyl engineers). And those guys were ALWAYS knowingly put there by ‘snake friendly’ management, and inevitably replaced ethical and conscientious workers who understood the rules (and the reasons for them) and would push back if they were asked to do the wrong thing.

The problem for snake-friendly management who want to populate technical areas with people who will gladly break the rules if asked – because that management has to setup arm’s length arrangements to avoid responsibility – is that they can’t always control which rules get broken or procedures overlooked.
