^ He wasn't being a smart-arse. What he said was actually quite reasonable. It's a very small country with a small population.

"30 guns for every 100 people" doesn't say that 1/3 of people own guns. Just that there are enough guns for 1/3 of the population to own them.

"The estimated rate of private gun ownership (both licit and illicit) in the United States is 101.053 firearms per 100 people"

I don't think that means there are 101.053 people for every 100 people.


Right now I'm not arguing that. I understand what he has said and what Offline posted. I meant his standpoint of "what is a gun?" Making out like Iceland is gun free. I just thought it was an odd thing to say. They do have an incredibly low rate of gun crime even with their current figures of gun ownership. Anyhow none of this matters.

What we should be talking about is Thorium-based Nuclear power! Which China is in the process of building, maybe have even finished.


I'm from Iceland, what is Thorium based Nuclear power?

Thorium is a radioactive element or isotope.

Nuclear power usually uses the fission method to produce steam that moves turbine blades. This in turn creates kinetic energy which is transformed into electricity.

Thorium based nuclear power is probably a type of nuclear power that uses Thorium.

Pretty in-depth video explaining the benefits over high pressure water / Uranium fuel rod system. It was discovered in 1940s the only reason they didn't further develop it is because you cannot get weapons grade material from it.

There are several concerns mentioned in the video about using Thorium, so not all is dandy. But like the other options - technology and innovation can and will overcome them.

I live .03 miles from Fort AP Hill now. I hear gun fire, choppers, explosions and more on a daily basis. I MISS living in the city and hearing less than 20 pops a minute.


i know how ya feel, i used to live by Quantico, VA (i shared a fence with the base)

i would hear gun fire choppers and artillery everyday. (5am they started with Artillery...needless to say never need an alarm clock)

I went for lunch with Bjork, once. She threw a sandwich at me.

True story.
