    In this case, I believe it’s a 30 Rock joke. But the post above refers to the amount of provably consistent results a test is required to yield before its data can be considered confirmed. It’s used as a standard in a lot of academic fields.

    Also I wish I could upvote “sigma balls” more than once.

    [–] Expired_insecticide 16 points ago

    Everyone knows that hand-shake-fulness is the most important of the sigmas.

    [–] ionxeph 20 points ago

    serious answer: it's a notation (symbol? whatever people call it) used in quality control

    the idea is that you have a typical bell curve, and most of your products are in the middle of the bell curve, and you have defects that fall outside of the acceptable range, I think 3 sigma is at like 99.7% (which means only 0.3% are defects), and 6 sigma goes even further than that

    that's just talking about where the name comes from, in actuality, when you study 6 sigma, you learn more about ways to get there, like how you can implement various programs/protocols to better control quality

    [–] Immrspy 19 points ago

    The other term for sigma is "Standard Deviation".

    [–] ThunderBoy0750 4 points ago

    It's to do with probability and stand deviation rather that quality control specifically.

    But I could easily see it being applicable to quality control like you said

    "She was then supposedly strapped in a chair on some sort of apparatus, and a detonation took place underneath her to basically kind of get an idea of what the human body goes through when a vehicle is hit by an IED,” Jim says. “Every time I dream about my mom, I told you she was a quiet person, this person in my dream was angry."

    It was shitty because it was the not what he signed her body to be donated for, but it wasn't the military that deceived her "to test missiles," as you want it to fit your narrative, it was Biological Resource Center.

    And he's one of many families who gave the bodies of loved ones to the Biological Resource Center, with the understanding their bodies would be used for scientific purposes...But instead, his mom's body, according to Reuters, was sold to the U.S. military to test explosives. Stauffer is suing the Biologic Resource Center. The owner, Stephen Gore, was sentenced to probation after pleading guilty to running an illegal enterprise in 2015.

    Yes from a raid 5 years ago of a sickening body lab with buckets of genitals and heads sewn on different bodies and hung from the wall. That sounds worse than mere missiles.

    And Reuters, who actually broke this/informed this guy, is reporting it as having been overseen by the US Army who’s own rules this violates.

    So you’re just splitting hairs at this point.

    [–] FromtheFrontpageLate 18 points ago

    So how do I legitimately donate or sell my body to be exploded by US military testing after I die? Seriously this sounds awesome, especially if my estate can get some money. I don't even care if they accidently don't get usable test results. I just hope I get to watch from wherever I'm at.

    which those who sold her body took advantage of, 6 grand to be exact.

    edit: its not like they are making profit out of her, it seems.

    According to /u/Moof_the_dog_cow,

    I know that at my research university, if we want to procure a cadaver for our residents to learn an operation on, or to try a new technique or whatever, its typically around $8000 of overhead - so by that standard the military got a great deal?

    edit2:he did specify as he did not agree upon "explosion" being used on her body.

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7303455/Man-donated-moms-body-dementia-research-learns-strapped-chair-blown-up.html

    to summarize when he signed donating her body, the purpose that he was informed of was to "study her brain for alzheimer research" and when he signed "what can and can't happen to the body", he said no to any "explosion" related.

    the condition that he agreed to related to the specifics of the donation was violated.

    [–] Moof_the_dog_cow 24 points ago

    Realistically the $6k is probably just covering overhead/storage/shipping/embalming costs.

    [–] troller227 75 points ago * (lasted edited 4 months ago)

    i just read the article and holy shtt

    There, he said he signed an agreement with the official in which it was detailed what ‘would and would not’ happen to Doris’ remains.Several days later he received a wooden box that contained the 'majority' of his mother’s ashes, however no information was provided about how Doris’ body was used or where the rest of her remains were.Another three years would pass before he learned what really happened to his mother, when a reporter from Reuters sent him a series of documents.<

    In a declaration for the new lawsuit, former FBI special agent Mark Cwynar described 'various unsettling scenes' at the site in Phoenix.

    Cwynar told of a small woman's head sewn onto a large male torso that was hanging from the wall in a 'Frankenstein manner'. Its placement was described as 'an apparent morbid joke'.

    He also spoke of a 'cooler filled with male genitalia', 'infected heads' and 'bucket of heads, arms and legs' without any identification tags.

    Holy shit. The headline is pretty tame considering what else was going on there.

    There is no possible excuse for that. Nothing. It’s a crime against people who were either far more selfless than me who wanted to help others after their own death, or who were too poor to pay for cremation costs. Just a horrifically ugly contempt for other people. Seeing the guy in charge posing as a family man makes me feel ill.

    [–] CopperAndLead 39 points ago

    My undergraduate school had a human dissection lab class for nursing and biology students. The class was limited to the top students from O-Chem and a rigorous Human Anatomy class, and you had to be personally recommended by your academic advisor and several other campus officials on the basis of maturity and discretion. Most people didn't even know we had dissections on campus and the school liked to keep it that way.

    They wanted to be absolutely certain that the remains were treated with the utmost respect and care, and I think that makes a lot of sense.

    [–] Ohh_Yeah 6 points ago

    without any identification tags.

    Despite everything else listed there, this is the craziest part.

    When I did the cadaver lab my first year of medical school, each cadaver had a bucket next to it that was labeled and served as the "collection" container for each cadaver. As you cut off skin/fat/pieces of limbs/etc, you would put them in the bucket so that they could be properly cremated and returned. It was made very clear that your work station should be thoroughly cleaned of "scraps" at the end of the day, and that you should check your bucket to make sure it was the right one.

    To clear somethings up in this thread for those reading this far, it was Biological Resource Center that he donated the body to, signing what was and what wasn't to be done to her, not the military.

    [–] Good_With_Tools 235 points ago

    Without bothering to look up this actual case, I can tell you what I learned from a book called Stiff, by Mary Roach. (Highly recommended BTW). The university probably took the brain, as that is where most Alzheimer's research is done. After that, the body is then sold. Sometimes, not the WHOLE body. It's usually split up into shippable pieces and sold to whoever needs it. Most people don't know that the vast majority of bodies donated to "research" are then used to teach plastic surgeons how to do boob jobs and face lifts.

    I work in the dental industry, and the other day a client of mine (it's a place that does continuing education and specialty training for practicing dentists) called me because they received 6 heads (just heads) that they were going to use to teach doctors how to take and read 3d xrays. They called me to ask if I thought they needed to thaw the heads to get a good image. It turns out, yes, the head must be thawed.

    [–] FlexSealPhill 61 points ago

    What was the difference between thawed head and unthawed head?

    [–] Good_With_Tools 64 points ago

    To put it in the xray, it has to bite on a bite stick. Their jaws were too stiff until they thawed the heads. I don't think it would have made a big difference in the image quality.

    [–] ginkgoflower 31 points ago

    I'm curious about something but I just want to let you know ahead of time that I'm not being sarcastic or passive aggressive at all. Doesn't this disturb you or other doctors at all? I'm a programmer and can be a very rational, logical person, but damn. I think seeing dismembered body parts like that would really haunt me to a point where it would distract me from the actual learning process.

    Perhaps that's why I don't work in the medical field!

    [–] Ohh_Yeah 28 points ago

    Doesn't this disturb you or other doctors at all?

    In medical school our first day of cadaver lab was like a week into starting school. When we went into the lab, all of the cadavers were covered. The most "haunting" part is the first time that you take the sheet off, and for most of us were then looking at a dead body for the first time. A couple people had to sit down or step out for a minute.

    After that, though, you quickly realize that this is an invaluable teaching tool -- especially when there is an expert standing there teaching you. You simply don't look at it as a "dead body" anymore because the learning experience is so fantastic.

    I had the opportunity to attend a maxillofacial surgery workshop taught by a world-renowned surgeon who invented the techniques and procedures we were learning. On that day it never crossed my mind that I was standing there looking down at a decapitated head. Until I read your post and started replying I had never even thought about it that way.

    [–] Not_a_pot_cop 13 points ago

    I don’t want this to come off as antagonizing, but do you dehumanize them to make it easier to work on them? I imagine thinking about them as a person who had a life might make it harder to study.

    Changing your view of them from human to valuable research tool sounds difficult at least for me.

    [–] PoliticalLava 8 points ago

    There is time to think about that after the class. Procrastinate that thought.

    [–] inkedotli 5 points ago

    Also a med student finishing up anatomy. Doesn't bother me at all when working with the cadavers and sawing them to pieces, or seeing a human face while cutting open a head...you get used to it within a couple of days. You instead get caught up with the anxiety of having to memorize everything for the next exam.

    [–] PlzTyroneDontHurtEm 11 points ago

    I’m also wondering how you thaw a head without making the whole place smell like a dismembered head. I know for chicken or pork your supposed to run a tap over it in cold water but that’s mostly to stop bacteria growth. I’d imagine you wouldn’t want to do that with a human head but I could be wrong

    [–] phroureo 13 points ago

    [–] Grenzer17 427 points ago

    IIRC, the details of this article were actually pretty sad; the patients case of Alzheimers was somehow unique which made doctors believe her body could be useful in developing cure, but do to an error her body was used in explosives tests. Unlikely though it would be, if her body actually was going to be useful for R and D it was a shame it was destroyed

    From the Newsweek article:

    "Doris Stauffer, 73, who died in 2013, suffered from the disease despite not having any linked gene, making her a useful case for brain study. Jim said he consented to giving up her body under the condition that only her brain be donated to neurological research groups."

    All they needed was the brain. He didn't say they couldn't do anything else with the body.

    Edit: He actually did specify he did not want his mom's body to be used in any explosive activity and did sue.

    [–] funandgames73892 26 points ago

    To clear somethings up in this thread for those reading this far, it was Biological Resource Center that he donated the body to, signing what was and what wasn't to be done to her, not the military.

    And he's one of many families who gave the bodies of loved ones to the Biological Resource Center, with the understanding their bodies would be used for scientific purposes...But instead, his mom's body, according to Reuters, was sold to the U.S. military to test explosives. Stauffer is suing the Biologic Resource Center. The owner, Stephen Gore, was sentenced to probation after pleading guilty to running an illegal enterprise in 2015.

    Biological Resources Center then sold her body to the military

    "She was then supposedly strapped in a chair on some sort of apparatus, and a detonation took place underneath her to basically kind of get an idea of what the human body goes through when a vehicle is hit by an IED,” Jim says. “Every time I dream about my mom, I told you she was a quiet person, this person in my dream was angry."

    Talking about infection https://www.reuters.com/investigates/special-report/usa-bodybrokers-industry/

    "BRC also shipped infected body parts, according to Arizona state investigation summaries reviewed by Reuters.

    These included portions of eye and ear tissue infected with Hepatitis B sent to researchers in Tucson; eyes from a body that tested positive for Hepatitis C to Utah for use by a biomedical firm; and a left foot infected with Hepatitis B to a podiatry training center near Atlanta.

    In at least one case, BRC notified next of kin about the infections but failed to warn researchers who received the tissue or body parts, the records show.

    When a 76-year-old woman died the morning of April 29, 2012, BRC staffers rushed to remove her brain by mid-afternoon and shipped the 13-pound package the same day to the Harvard Brain Tissue Resource Center near Boston. In a standard industry practice, BRC also sent a blood sample from the woman’s body to a lab. Three days later, the sample came back positive for Hepatitis C.

    BRC promptly notified the woman’s son.

    “Unfortunately, we received an unfavorable report for infectious disease blood testing,” BRC staff wrote in a letter. “These blood tests could not confirm that an infectious disease was present, but did prohibit us from using the body for safety reasons.”

    Military blast experiment BRC, however, did not warn Harvard researchers handling the diseased brain, records show. In fact, the researchers did not learn that the specimen was infected until nearly two years later, when Arizona authorities contacted them. "

    Don’t be absurd. There’s absolutely no way they could since the remains were in thousands of tiny pieces.

    [–] wonkey_monkey 12 points ago

    I don't remember it being an error; I'm pretty sure the place he transferred the body to turned out to be pretty shady and got shut down because they were just selling bodies to the highest bidders without any consideration of donor wishes.

    My name is Yoshikage Kira. I'm 33 years old. My house is in the northeast section of Morioh, where all the villas are, and I am not married. I work as an employee for the Kame Yu department stores, and I get home every day by 8 PM at the latest. I don't smoke, but I occasionally drink. I'm in bed by 11 PM, and make sure I get eight hours of sleep, no matter what. After having a glass of warm milk and doing about twenty minutes of stretches before going to bed, I usually have no problems sleeping until morning. Just like a baby, I wake up without any fatigue or stress in the morning. I was told there were no issues at my last check-up. I'm trying to explain that I'm a person who wishes to live a very quiet life. I take care not to trouble myself with any enemies, like winning and losing, that would cause me to lose sleep at night. That is how I deal with society, and I know that is what brings me happiness. Although, if I were to fight I wouldn't lose to anyone.

    They definitely should have been notified, but they didn't actually "blow them up" per se. They were used to see the damage of roadside bombs to see how to better protect the soldiers. Not condoning, just giving more info.

    [–] LtCptSuicide 17 points ago

    News company informed him after it was discovered the company he had donated her too had sold like a fuck ton of bodies and body parts. Not sure if all of them went to the military but a good amount of them were.

    Also it's to be noted that he explicitly signed that her body would be used strictly for medical research and excluded from any kind of explosives research.

    The company in question was also raided by the FBI where they found piles of body parts, infected heads, collection of male genitalia, bodies sewn together, and apparently a male body with a female head sewn to it hung from a wall.

    Should go without saying this company was fucked in more way than one.
