Waters is a self-affected emo, but I listen to/play him in my head in such moments.

Does anybody else in here feel the way I do?

Whatever your first-world problems are (BJ, Trump or Covid), at least you can be relatively sure that no moron stores several thousand tones of ammonium nitride (a.k.a. a small nuke) next to your house.

Given the density of Trump properties around here, I wouldn’t bet on it. Although I guess I kind of do by keeping on living here. We just survived tropical storm Isaias, in case anybody were worried. Of course, since we are not in the tropics, he was at the point of transitioning from post-tropical to extra-tropical when coming through Manhattan.

And in UK, Sellafield (previously aka infamous Windscale) that dumps radioactive crap into the Irish Sea.

Of course, Sellafield is a long way from the Home Counties.

Aberfan 1966

McLean and Johnes observe that HM Inspectorate of Mines went largely unchallenged by the tribunal, although the two consider that the organisation failed in their duty; in doing so, they created a situation of regulatory capture, where rather than protecting the public interest—in this case the citizens of Aberfan—their regulatory failures fell in line with the interests of the NCB, the organisation they were supposed to be overseeing.[103]

Why would the 'first world' (your words) be different? Give 'em an inch and they'll take a mile

Waiting to happen: The sunken ship, the explosives - and the huge threat to the north Kent coast
Some of the bombs are armed.

Nice area, BTW. The local quiet nature reserve was my and my husband's favourite hideaway before we blew up :-)
