my host mum just said that plants beside the tv is good because it absorbs radiation! and she said she had scientific proof for that, from two different magazines! wtf! help me dissaprove that, cause it doesnt seem very likely to me?

Edit:
and of course, im googleing it right now, but i dont really know what to search for...

I believe these grow quite well beside a TV, and can do wonders for absorbing all sorts, if used correctly......

Cant really answer your question......

but everything on earth absorbs or emits radiation....it depends on what type of radiation she means...

quote:
Light is a form of electromagnetic radiation. There is a whole spectrum of electromagnetic radiation ranging from radio waves to microwaves to infrared to visible light to ultraviolet to X-rays and Gamma rays.


quote:
Radiation is described by its frequency and wavelength. Of the spectrum of electromagnetic radiation, gamma rays have the shortest wavelength and highest frequency (number of complete wave cycles in a second), and radio waves have the longest wavelength and lowest frequency. Everything and every process on Earth absorbs, reflects and/or emits electromagnetic radiation in a distinctive frequency and wavelength range. For example, plants absorb all visible light except that corresponding to the colour green. Therefore plants appear green.

yeah, but would it really make an effect on the radiation? i think she meant electromagnetic fields, but im not sure... i mean, for me if it should make an effect, then it more or less got to be in between the tv and the person watching, but then it kinda defeats the purpose of having a tv? and if they have so much radiation themselves so that they can absorb the radiation from the tv (or perhaps you can draw all the radiation to you without beeing radiactive?), then i donno if i rather have a tv than some super radioactive plants

oh well, im not a physics major so i might be wrong here but doesnt make sense to me!

Happy birthday mate. Get wasted and forget about resonable tax methods.


And you know that guinness was a fuck up zig? Still tastes like shit too.


As for plants next to/in front of tvs radiation from tv's will always get you fuck up your sperm count and make you unable to breed.


Everyone knows that.......

Heh, well, yeah, it makes sense only if the plants are between you and the TV. Now, the TV does emit some radiation, but the emission from a TV is pretty weak and harmful only to the eyes (mostly because of intense light and low refresh rate), not really to the rest of the organism (unless perhaps you stick your head onto the screen and leave it like that for 2 days). Perhaps if you want to shield the sides of the TV from emitting beta radiation (electrons) it would make sense, but beta radiation isn't really harmful, while the harmful gamma radiation can easily penetrate those plants. It's just that TVs don't emit much of that. And they're still hitting you if you stand in front of the TV which is pretty much the way most normal folk watch it.

Sorry St. Andrew but she might be right. Anyone who gardens knows the plants love (and grow better) with warmth (not just light). The TV might provided that added warmth to the plants that will give it an edge over say if it sits in a cold corner or under an A/C duct.

Here's a K-2 lesson for you

eh right.....and this explains how radiation is blocked by plants from TVs.....or am i missing something here

and btw Yoepus you left out talking to the plants to help them grow....
