So, last night we were discussing bioassay techniques in my radiation safety class.

My fellow teacher, after explaining fecal dosimetry techniques, declared that no one, not the subject providing the sample, not the dosimetrist who has to process it, certainly not the rest of the lab staff, nor even the building neighbors like it when you have to do fecal samples.
 
I begged to disagree. I clearly remember an occasion that a world renowned health physicist loudly declared in my presence "I LOVE FECAL SAMPLES!"
 
There was then a three beat pause...
 
And he corrected himself, declaring somewhat less loudly, "I love the numbers I get from fecal samples."

Once again, I love making sure lessons hit home and stick for life with memorable vignettes like this to hang the information on. I'm just sad no one took video of my Rubbin' My Ass On Uranium dance to demonstrate proper dosimeter badge usage.
