******* fifteen?
That's ******** , you need a bigger test input.
If i picked 15 people from earth, and they were chinese, then I could say all humans are chinese.

can you tell us what jalthelas was saying on his deleted comment ? I really want to have a motive to despise him instead of just despising him out of habit

I attempted to make a joke about the Holocaust.

It did sound better in my head.

I said something like,

"Seriously! If I put 15 Jews in a concentration camp, and they all died, then I could say 6 million of them died, too."

There, a fresh new comment to thumb down.

Also this one, if you're feeling adventurous.

Well, the average human is a chinese man...
User avatar #23 to #14 - martycamp (06/24/2013) [-]
Let's see, shall we? The population of China is estimated at 1,353,821,000. For simplicity's sake, we'll assume that they're all Chinese, and that there is a 50/50 split between men and women.

That means there are 676,910,500 Chinese men. Considering that the Earth's population is estimated at 7.093 billion, that means the average human is NOT a Chinese man

That's true if you split the world into chinese people and not-chinese people...
User avatar #28 to #23 - aahrg (06/24/2013) [-]
yeah but it's not white and chinese, it's white, brown, slightly darker brown, slightly lighter brown, black, blacker, blackest, chinese, and those faggots in south america.

there are more chinese males than any other race/gender mix in the world.

User avatar #40 to #39 - sparkytwl (06/24/2013) [-]
yes but if you look they took a ridiculously tiny sample size of 15 then made a judgment saying all are
User avatar #41 to #40 - lokiwins (06/24/2013) [-]
But going by that theory you could say that there would most likely be more than a single uncontaminated tuna.

That is why you don't build nuclear facilities along fault lines in areas historically hit by tsunamis. Thanks Japan, everyone has to pay for your mistake.

My knowledge about radiation got a bit rusty.
How do they tell the radiation is from Fukushima?

It'd be interesting to know just how much they are irradiated. Everything is radiation contaminated to some point, even humans are radioactive (at least i think we are, I'm not 100% sure about that, though) but our cells regenerate anyway, so unless it's quite a load of radiation we get in a short amount of time, we can just walk it off.

Please correct me if I'm wrong.
#19 to #16 - Deanoss (06/24/2013) [-]
i too would like to know the answer to this
#22 to #19 - Shmooglavoue (06/24/2013) [-]
Background radiation exists because most objects are incredibly slightly irradiated.

Nuclear radiation is essentially isotopes (partial atoms) flying around. An isotope has a positive or negative charge depending upon whether it's missing a proton or electron. This charge makes them want to pull off pieces of other atoms in order to complete itself, and they can do so when they come into contact. This causes damage that can only be detected on an atomic scale, which is why radiation is impossible to detect without a Geiger counter (which measures the number of isotopes in the air). Technically, there are always going to be a small number of isotopes flying around that our bodies just deal with, since they are such large complex and self-regulating systems. It takes a significant number of stray isotopes to do lasting damage.

Nuclear power plants and atomic bombs cause radiation because the process of Nuclear Fission involves slamming atoms into each other, causing a chain reaction when they break and sending the pieces flying. Much more fallout than what happens naturally on earth (at least the surface).

The term "radiation" can also refer to the expulsion of energy, such as UV light from the sun. The term was used to describe nuclear fallout before it was well understood, since it "seemed" to be giving off energy when it is actually giving off incomplete atoms. Try not to get the two confused.

BTW, I'm not a chemist, I'm just reciting what I remember from high school and independent studies of radiation. So any real chemists are free to correct me if I've made an error.
#48 to #22 - anon (07/01/2013) [-]
i am not a chemist either but I recently had a course that focused on nuclear energy and radiation. I would like to point out that while much of what you said is in fact correct regarding human biology, your explanation of nuclear radiation is pretty far off. isotopes are not partial atoms they are atoms with varying numbers of neutrons. some of these isotopes are unstable and tend to decay by a variety of means (alpha, beta+, beta-, and gamma) resulting in the atom eventually reaching a stable state. the subatomic particles given off by these decays is what we refer to as radiation.
regarding the method that nuclear power plants use to produce energy (at least the design I was taught), a neutron is generally accelerated by some means into a fuel matrix resulting in fission, the fission produces several smaller atoms which may or may not be unstable. if an atom is stable the process ends for that atom, but if the atom is unstable it undergoes decay and releases more energy.
#49 to #48 - Shmooglavoue (07/01/2013) [-]
Thanks for the correction. I was right about the sub-atomic particles (what I referred to as partial atoms) being the source of radiation. I just used the term isotopes incorrectly it seems.

I think it's heat radiation or something like UV, I don't really know but we definately emit some kind of radiation.

#30 to #16 - whatley ONLINE (06/24/2013) [-]
Yes, we are radioactive somewhat. Due to us being carbon based life, we contain small amounts of Carbon-14, which decays through β+ decay, emitting radiation.
User avatar #15 - ColeTheUber (06/24/2013) [-]
I really hope that sample size was something more like 450000, and the researcher was just like "If we announce that 450000/450000 tuna are contaminated, people will call us liars, so **** it, lets just say 15/15."
User avatar #13 - klina ONLINE (06/24/2013) [-]
15/15?
So does that mean that, they tested more than 15 and since the others weren't irradiated they just put the 15 as a count to use for their banana?
