Related to the issue of humor impairment raised by Rick Strikert below.
There was a test I heard long ago about how to tell if a person is humor impaired. You ask them a "simple" question:
Q: What does a dyslexic, agnostic, insomniac dog do?
A: They lay awake all night wondering if there is a god.
1) If the person laughs immediately, they are not humor impaired.
2) If they laugh after you point out that god and dog are simply palindromes-- words that can be read forwards or backwards, they are marginally humor impaired.
3) If they don't laugh, even if the question is fully explained, they are clearly humor impaired.

If the attempt to build a nuclear reactor had happened in the American town of Connoquenessing, PA, Mooselookmeguntic, ME, or Chickasawhatchee, GA, I would have made a similar comment about the spelling of the town name. Better still, if it had occurred in Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, Wales.
