    Can't explain why, just love the look of places like that. It would be the most relaxing place in the world to just chill and be alone in the quiet :wub: (this is assuming there are no employees :squint:)

    Aside from the obvious and serious health problems, i just find it so beautiful.

    There's just some weird appeal to industrial areas...

    :lol: Not so much the nuclear reactors, though i won't lie, it's a pretty incredible sight. After Chernobyl mind you, i couldn't live near one ;) (that being said, i'd be more than happy to move to Pripyat... The accident has already happened there :lol::ugh:)

    yes your picture of the chinese power station (nuclear one that is) is pretty classic, but what you see coming out of those cooling tower (chimney if you wish) is STEAM..unlike the other industrial pic which are showing heavily leaded fumes

    as for chernobyl, i got to walk on the reactor of its sister power station (before i get flames, yes you can it is an RBMK ... wikipedia...)

    yep, people who own those are pretty ruthless sadly, adn they don't really give 2 shits about the community around a mine. for them it is make money or lose money and if it loses, then it must be shutdown.

    the closest i haev been to the US / mexico border is .. NM!!!! i went to los alamos for work. the scenery is amazing, but you can feel that mother nature will crush you if you step out of line.

    well, i hope that your band / music brings a little bit of much needed relief to those who go to your shows...nothing beats some head banging and letting lose once in a while!!!!
