FF: Phish concerts, Exploding beer kegs, Mountaintop removal

Here's our first Friday Funday-turned-to-Friday Weirdday with our top couple favorite fun/wacky/weird links of "things worse than nuclear power" sent in by YOU.

Exploding beer kegs: http://boston.cbslocal.com/2012/04/24/exploding-beer-keg-leaves-worker-in-critical-condition/

Mountaintop removal?  http://www.nrdc.org/energy/coal/mtr/

Been fun, keep 'em coming for next time!

For those unfamiliar, the basis for most of these is that there have been no deaths from nuclear power due to radiation in the history of over 50 years of commercial nuclear power in the United States, that there have been the fewest amount of deaths/injuries compared to all other energy sources, no deaths worldwide due to nuclear power since Chernobyl (almost 30 years ago), there have been no emissions due to nuclear power (ever), an incredibly small amount of fuel required (roughly 1/400,000th that of coal) and an otherwise impeccable safety record.  For reference see "How Deadly is your Kilowatt" on Forbes.
