Nuclear Risk Proof?

Lets count the score, OK. People hurt - None. Property damage - None. Incidental deaths - None. Radiation released - None. Actual problem without hype - trouble starting a diesel generator because the guy that knows where the reset button is, is not on duty.
Actual problem that could result from not getting generator going - reactor water overheats - exposes part of core before cooldown completed - part of core melts. Can you say Three Mile Island? Most over hyped piece of nothing I ever heard of.
If Y2K lets us off this lightly, I will be a very happy man.
