Precision vs Accuracy

3 Comments and 7 Shares
'Barack Obama is much less likely than the average cat to jump in and out of cardboard boxes for fun' is low precision, but I'm not sure about the accuracy.

I’ve heard of low background steel, which is a great story of cutting up scuttled WWI battleships
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Low-background_steel

I didn’t know about the Roman lead used for shielding
https://www.nature.com/news/2010/100415/full/news.2010.186.html

But now I are gotta find out why freshly mined lead has radioactive lead-210 in it but in old mined lead it has already decayed, since the lead atoms themselves all being the same age. Must have to do with trace elements decaying into lead-210

Yeah. Lead-210 has a half-life of about 20 years, but it’s part of the decay chain for uranium-238, and there’s enough of that in lead _ore_ that basically all freshly mined lead has some lead-210 in it. Along with a bunch of other radioisotopes, but those are different chemical elements so they are separated out by smelting.

Turtle Sandwich Standard Model

It's possible the bread and shell can be split into a top and bottom flavor, and some models additionally suggest Strange Bread and Charm Shells.

I find it confusing how Randall misunderstands that the turtle is actually its own shell.

What are all these less-than signs? What's an HREF? Look, we know you live in a fancy futuristic tech world, but not all of us have upgraded to the latest from Sun Microsystems.
