i dont think thats a very good idea.
i mean, where would one draw the line as to who gets sterilized or not.
is it based on IQ?
if everyone who isnt smart enough is sterilized, we wouldnt have a working class doing the jobs that smart people shouldnt have to do.
if its based on scores or grades, wouldnt there be a large portion of people who would be unfairly sterilized?
there are schools where some children are taught with a different method and therefore perform worse.
for example, boys are recently getting higher test scores than girls, yet a noticeable decrease in class grades can be observed. this can be caused by teachers focusing more on emotional development and working together in groups rather than individual and intellectual development, which benefits girls more than boys, according to statistics.
if its based on who goes to jail, there are many innocent people who get convicted every year. "oh, it was actually (suspect #2) who killed that homeless guy? well..... sorry about the never being able to have kids"

and the fact of the matter is, who you are raised around really affects people more than who their parents are. its why things like tumblr, reddit, fj and 4chan end up affecting how people progress in their lives. i found fj somewhere in the middle of high school. before then i was autistic as ****. cringe comps really helped me set my life back on track. if i hadn't found fj, id probably wear a fedora today. but i also am way more racist and misogynistic. i cant deny that feminazi posts made me see women differently (at this point i skip them entirely, because i know not all women are like that and its useless just getting mad over things like that). i can only imagine if i found tumblr first though. i may or may not have been a sjw. and if i found 4chan? id probably be 3x as autistic.

Fine then. we engineer the superior human being (tall, strong, healthy, high IQ) and replace all sperm banks with that DNA. Spread superior genes instead of culling the weak ones.

More ethical for you then?

If DNA wasn't so corruptible as it is, that'd worked. But it will not. If we replace all the smperm banks with a single DNA (no matter how good or pure or whatever you wanna call it is), it'll go to hell in a couple of generations. That's why DNA diversity is so important.
The proof can be found in certain dog races that were designed to be the "perfect" specimen and ended up being a disaster. Or the nobility that ended up breeding retards and downies. Or the rednecks that marry each other and we all know how those people are.

The good thing was that a few contained it, and as a result, many lives were saved at their expense. The cancer that was thus caused as a result of the radiation commonly (I think it was thyroid) was caught straight away. The medical team knew what they were looking for in the people in the area and, from what I remember from my ****** Physics teacher in Secondary, hardly anybody died from the cancer/radiation from a distance. Anyone in the nuclear plant, however, was ******. Some got out, but the radiation is slowly withering them. Don't hold me to it, my Physics teacher was a ginger prick and I didn't rely on him for much, but he knew where to get the correct, justified information.

Where did you get that. Source please.
Because conservative estimates count it at about 40.000 people.
There are problems with direct connection, but, for example, numbers of extremely rare thyroid cancer skyrocketed.
and yes 40-60 thousand is lot less then a million.
But HELL of a lot more then 60.

Searching for this the first thing that popped up stated that the number was 985k, which just proves how extreme some people want the accident to appear. But I trust the UN and the WHO.

Also, the remaining 3 reactors were operational up into the 90's, which I doubt would happen if several thousand people were dying from cancer at the same time.

Did you read the entire report or did you just skim over the numbers?
4000 people contracted thyroid cancer over it. Thyroid cancer has excillent survival rate, but just there there is more then 50 people dying. And that is assuming no one else died of anything.
First, the number is only for direct exposure, and second its only so far. As just about every report says, its incredibly hard to make a conclusion if cancer was caused by that particular radiation exposure.
Thyroid cancer is a sure thing because its so RARE, and thyroid cancer cases went up nearly 600%. With over 400.000 people directly exposed, and then the rain and dispersal over much of europe, its much harder to make a certain number.
WHO paper only lists absolutely certain cases, which will almost certainly rise to around 4000, due to people battling cancer now.
That's why the conservative estimates come to over 40k, because of long term studies on cancer frequency.

You say that there are more than fifty people dying just from thyroid, bu of those 4k who got it, the report clearly say that most of the cases were children and adolescent, and that 9 children died. Even if we use that number pessimistically, that makes 20 in all. As you said, the rate went up 600%, but 6xalmost nothing is still almost nothing. Other cancer diseases did not have this explosive increase, which is why the death toll is so low. Sure, there is probably people who died from cancer that are not included, but if you contribute every increased cancer victim to this, you absolutely get a wrong number.

If I remember correctly, the team of nuclear scientists working at the Chernobyl plant stayed behind to delay the meltdown, putting them at risk of cancer and buying time for citizens to evacuate.

The reason so few died of cancer is because it was the first thing that doctors checked for.

Oh, snopes is full of ****. Not saying OP is right, but take everything with a grain of salt, including 'Snopes - Fortress of Fedora-Wearers'.

Microwaving (according to my research) food produces isocyanates and other harmful chemicals, and destroys certain micronutrients.

This was sort-of the kicker point for me: there is no other place in nature where food is exposed to a strong AC electric field - an AC field causes highly-energetic migration of electrons throughout the food, causing formation of exotic (potentially-harmful) compounds, and destruction of other beneficial ones.

TBH, if Mythbusters does it, i give them a lot more credence than other sources (without verifying it for myself).

...But i was also talking about microwaving food in general, not just water. Kinda hard to make isocyanates with water.

I thought about it, but I didn't know if it couldn't work due to it actually being in the lung. I guess I thought it would basically be a guaranteed collapsed lung.I'm pretty clueless when it comes to what you can or can't do with surgery.

Number 18 seems pretty fun.

You could hold your breath for an insanely long time because the pea plant would be converting the carbon dioxide in your lungs back into oxygen, which would then be absorbed by the lungs and converted back into carbon dioxide, and the cycle continues.
