I agree. This shows us nothing about universal Truth, only about our own linguistic inadequacies.

Well, okay, I really was only half-paying attention.

Just so you know guys I know that antimatter exists, they use it in hospitals for.. some kind of scan. I think it's a PET scan but I can't really remember.

I'm...pretty sure antimatter's not a good thing to keep, or use in any way, in a hospital...

Well it's not like they keep bricks of it laying around. They use it in small doses.

They use radioactive stuff that gives off antimatter

Radioactive stuff gives off antimatter? I was under the impression that it gave off energy (in the form of radiation) and various types of matter (smaller atoms, various atomic components such as protons, etc).

Look up reverse beta delay.

Google gives no useful results, and no results whatsoever when I use quotation marks. I also tried "gamma" and "alpha" instead of beta.

And I seem to remember that neutron beta decay gives off antielectron neutrinos (or is that electron antineutrinos?).

Which, I just realized the other day, is a form of antimatter. So yeah, we're all right.
