I LOATHE commodity brokers. It's no better than running a casino and
making it look respectable after a fashion. In fact banks are no
different either thse days. It's all about making short term profits.
There's barely any such real thing as 'investment' any more.

It's probably more than that.  When we finished commissioning Browns Ferry #3,
GE gave all the staff little cardboard placards.  Each contained a genuine,
slightly radioactive fuel pellet under plastic along with text noting that the
pellet was the energy-equivalent to 4 train cars of coal.  It, of course, had
the graphic of 4 coal cars in the background.

That was at the relatively low burn-up rate of the early 70s.  Most plants
have converted to high burn-up fuel now so that pellet is worth even more.  I
don't feel like doing the math today but suffice it to say that there is a
huge amount of energy in each fuel pellet.

If you live in Canada, will your car have a heater?  Electric?
