I'd gladly have them come by my house for 75,000 and dig a hole and put some nuclear waste in my back yard as long as the grass would remain green and none of us would be affected dby it. Think of it somthing along the lines of 75,000 for a letting some poeple dig in your back yard. It'd have to be high to convice poeple.

Just this bit worries me:

# After about two years, enough of the U-235 has been converted to fission products and the fission products have built up enough so that the fuel rods must be removed and replaced by new ones.

# What to do with the spent fuel rods is what causes most of the fuss concerning nuclear power.

So every 2 years, stuff has to be buried.

After 500 years, the fission products will be less radioactive than the uranium ore they are originally derived from. So I guess thats when its at a safe point. Still a long time.

The sooner Fusion comes along, the better really, as that has no downsides on paper really, and only generates water as a bi-product.
