More Bull About Hamster Generated Electricity v Nuclear Generation, and How To Accidentally Blow Up a Small City.

Updated on January 07, 2011

A Statistical Analysis of Guinea Pig v Nuclear Power Generation (Refuting Keith S' Flawed Reasoning)

I found the research in the recent Hub "Are Hamsters a better alternative than uranium for electrical power?" biased, incomplete and seriously flawed. I conducted a more conclusive comparison trial at home with Guinea Pigs (Hamsters) kindly loaned/ donated by neighbourhood children.(Some haven't even missed them yet!)With the uranium mass test I used a block of uranium 238 of the same weight of the average of ten Guinea Pigs (GPs) running nearby wheels linked to the hubs of Stirmly-Archer bicycle generators. Admittedly the GPs initially put out power with voltages in the 1.8 - 2.93 range and amperages of 0.13 - 0.67 while the uranium wheel showed no measurable output, but within a very few minutes the GP output dropped to zero, and shortly afterwards their fur dropped off, as did their flesh.I then moulded the 238 into a core rod and placed in a small breeder reactor that I'd knocked up in a friend's garage out of old refrigerator parts (Knocked up is a Kiwi term meaning to put together casually and in a hurry, a quite different meaning to that of North America, although the same description could fit.)I then rang him from home and got him to lower the rod. I assure you that the ensuing release of energy was far greater than that of ten Hamsters on treadmills and looked quite spectacular from forty miles away.(Come to think of it, I may have inadvertently used U235)

However, for fairness of comparison I stuffed ten further GPs into the core tube of another breeder reactor in my own garage (I've plenty of old 'fridges,) and nothing happened even though I left them there an hour. when I took them out at the end of this time the survivors bit me!

The third experiment that I conducted was to break the uranium into very small pieces and insert them into the GPs rectally. This really fired 'em up and I got as much power generated in the two minutes they lived as I would expect to get in 18 months of normal GP activity.A similar result was achieved with chilli sauce, which is of course far cheaper than uranium 238, and means that many of the GPs can be re-used after a suitable recovery period.

This last seems the best way to generate Hamster power although the cost effectiveness of selling used uranium loaded Guinea Pigs to Iran v having to dispose of chilli fired ones (which have virtually no commercial value) yourself needs to be explored.

I'm sure that Keith meant well with his Hub and it certainly opened the way for further research into what is rapidly becoming an urgent topic in this day and age, but as you can see it was cunningly manipulative in its bias. Any article with Photos of Dick Cheney and Al Gore opposing a move is a sure way to turn the majority towards that move.

For those of you who may consider my tag of Sex, Sins and Rock and Roll misleading, have you ever put two Guinea Pigs of opposite sex together? Disgusting! and ten minutes later you've got five million even more disgusting Guinea Pigs.

      No Pete you are using he wrong GPs here if you were hoping to have them contribute to your home power supply. On the edge of BT forests (Northern Sector) there is a breeder of super GPs. They are quite different from norm as they have Twin Rectal Receptors.

      Good Hub mate... please write some more. Keep up the experiments and Take Care not to loose any GPs in your socks!

      Firm this was indeed quite a challenge for you to go to all that trouble for lil ol' us. hehe We need more scientists as your self, maybe one day you can come up with a way of converting GP poo into an energy source as they sure do a lot of it and it is already pelletized. I think I might have bitten you too for sticking something up my arse.

      Thank you for your thoughts nicomp and ralwus, even though you've missed the point as usual by speed reading. nicomp, These animals originally cost a quid and a bob. That thay came from Guinea and resemble politicians is a total coincidence. Charlie, I didn't put scraps of U238 up the rectal orifii of the animals used in the breeder reactor. That would compromise the experiment. I stuffed them into toilet tubes and then lowered them down the core tubes. As stated, nothing was generated. Therefore, a Guinea-pig will breed, but not effectively in a breeder reactor.

      I hope that this clarifies things.

      Cheers.

      malven101. How do you think that I get my finance for these experiments? I sell spent radio-active Hamsters to Islamic Freedom Fighters.

      nicomp, ralwus: Oh goody, non radio-active, French speaking, nasty little rodents with a bad attitude. The neighbour's kids can have their rotten little pets back, French nuclear testing is about to start again in the South Pacific. (And I get to experiment on little French speaking pigs!)

      I find this hub to be biased and disingenuous. I have recreated this experiment using the data provided, and discovered that you left out some vital information.

      In the course of the experiment, the GP's mutated into uber GP's. They appear to have grown in size, and increased their leg count to 6 each. The new appendages have served to increase the output exponentially! In fact, 5 GP's are powering my home at this moment. And for the price of about 12 heads of lettuce per day.

      I suspect that your experiment was a veiled attemp to create a radioactive foodsource for your 7,000,000 robotic electric eels on pogo sticks. But to what end?

      This is not over, my friend...

    • The Old Firm profile image
      Author

      The Old Firm 7 years ago from Waikato/Bay Of Plenty, New Zealand

      Your economics is more than suspect B.T. me old Jackass er Jackalope. The national grid cost of powering my home now, at the end of winter here is around two dollars a day. Lettuces cost over a dollar each in the Supermarket at the moment and seldom drop to below 80c, so your power costs around $10, to over $15 dollars daily to my $2, and you have to maintain a shonky system and shovel mutated Guinea-Pig shit continually. With thinking like that you'd have made an able puppet President.

      Of course I'm not on the Grid. With seven million electric eels I've rigged up the whole community to the power generated by their drilling on the pogo sticks (An awesome sight, 7,000,000 determined eels in black drainpipe uniforms, stingray-guns at the present goose-bouncing past in strict precision, when I take the salute every morning!)

      It turns me a nice little profit.

      Tinkerbell the gay bear is SO pleased that you're still around, he says to expect to see him soon, - he OWES you.

      Why thank you Patty, perhaps if I combine your and Chef Jeff's suggestions and build a bigger turbine for U235 activated politicians I could get a government grant.

      I could start off with those in opposition, the gov. would be happy to donate them, then the lesser coalition partners, in order of nuisance value, and finally awkward backbenchers.

      This should reduce our parliament to a manageable size and subtle hints of "You're probably next!" in the right ears should ensure substantial ongoing grants for research and extensive modification, during which time the generators will remain inactive.

      Cheers,

      Peter.

      Which chilis did you use exactly? I believe you might have increased GP output had you checked the scoville scale...

      erikso.com claims, " At up to 580 000 on the scoville scale (the Habanero) was long regarded as the hottest chili on this planet. But about eight years ago the Naga Jolokia was properly measured and is supposed to close in on 1 000 000 on the scoville scale. That chili could be regarded as something close to a weapon. Standard US grade pepper spray starts at 2 000 000."
