Fukushima, Chernobyl, Nagasaki or Hiroshima. American scientists are fed up having to get their dictionaries out whenever they want to correctly spell the name of the place in which a civil or military nuclear disaster has occurred.
“It’s a real pain in the neck. Couldn’t people try to find places with names easier to write? Salem (New Jersey), Surry (Virginia) and Perry (Ohio) are all the same not so hard to spell“, said the infuriated head of the AAI (American Atomic Institute).
“But I bet you’ll see that the next disaster they present us with will be in Susquehanna“, said the scientist angrily while frantically looking up in Wikipedia for the correct spelling of the nuclear power plant located in Pennsylvania, not far from that of Three Mile Island.
