Locating Hypodermic Needles ?

Yeah it’s the best headline I could do. I’m new here so please forgive the terms and thumb typing on iPhone.

Here in Southern California when a storm hits hypodermic needles arrive on the beach. Washed down the drains that drain into ocean.

Several people go pick up trash and I specifically look for sharps. There are children playing in the area and the bare foot folks as well of course.

There are example from 2 Jan 21 several and the y are usually in the β€œdry” So questions

  1. Will a detector locate something so small?
  2. Will the sand make it harder ? I understand that salt water sand can skew findings(?)
  3. I am sure the stick end is stainless steel... invisible to a device ?

And suggested devices and price range ? Thanks

Why is there so much plastic involved in a single-use hypodermic needle?

From what I understand so far, anything that might contain potentially infectious material is biohazardous waste, and therefore can't be recycled and must be incinerated and destroyed before going to its final resting place; the landfill. One syringe generally has several different plastic components to make it the safe, sterile medical instrument that it is. The majority, if not the entirety of these, are single-use only.

  1. Should we be incinerating plastics(?) in that kind of magnitude?
  2. Is it not feasible to separate and destroy the metal parts then clean and sterilize the remaining plastic parts via heat or chemical treatment?
  3. Are medical supply manufacturers essentially exempt from having to adopt sustainable practices or products that reduce total waste and carbon emissions?
  4. Is what we are doing the best option?

31-year-old Dorothy Tapper, wife of Dr. Edward Tapper, was found dismembered in the summer of 1985. After her torso was found with 40 precise injection points into her heart and chest muscles using hypodermic needles, a pathologist determined Dorothy’s killer had had medical training.

31-year-old Dorothy Goods Tapper was a beloved school teacher from Oak Park, a suburb in Chicago, Illinois. Dorothy taught 6th grade at Corkery Elementary School, and according to her fellow teachers and the principal, she was an extremely dedicated and hardworking teacher.

On Thursday, August 29, 1985, Dorothy’s mother, Ora Goods, dropped Dorothy and Dorothy’s 10-month-old son, Alan, off at Near West Side Clinic, where Dorothy’s husband, Doctor Edward Tapper worked as a gynecologist. Ora said she waved goodbye to her daughter and grandson and watched them walk inside.

It would be the last time she would ever see Dorothy alive.

A few days passed and after not hearing from her daughter, Ora became alarmed. After making several failed attempts to locate her, Ora called the Oak Park PD and filed a missing persons report on the evening of Sunday, September 1st.

Tragically, some of Dorothy’s remains had already been found.

The previous day, Saturday, August 31st, police in Portage, Indiana were summoned when an Amtrak worker found a human torso inside of a plastic bag laying along some railroad tracks that ran beneath an overpass of Int. Hwy. 94. Investigators determined the bag had been tossed from the overpass above.

(The location was approximately 50 miles from Oak Park, Illinois and it just behind Jellystone Park Campgrounds in Portage, Indiana.)

At the time of the discovery, Dorothy had not yet been reported missing. It was only after the missing report was submitted to local news stations on Sunday evening, that a reporter made the connection between the two stories.

The torso was confirmed to be Dorothy’s by using past x-rays of Dorothy’s spine for comparison.

A forensic pathologist believes whoever killed and dismembered Dorothy had a knowledge of human anatomy and possibly had medical training. Dorothy’s head, arms, and legs had all been cleanly severed from her torso, using both surgical equipment as well as a chainsaw.

The pathologist also determined that Dorothy had been injected with drugs over 40 times using hypodermic needles in her chest and heart muscles. An X-ray revealed that some of the needles were left inside of her body. However, according to the pathologist, this was done with precision and did not cause her death.

Dorothy was also severely beaten, and stabbed. The coroner placed her time of death approximately 24 hours before she was found. Her official cause of death was not determined.

It was also noted that the

(The Matrix) The Matrix is a literal Hypodermic Needle

For those who do not know, the Hypodermic Needle theory details that the way we consume media and information is akin to a needle being injected into us. It believes that we all react more or less uniformly to the stimulus we are given. For example, imagine you are watching the news, you aren't actively writing everything down, but passively absorbing the information and storing it. In this scenario we are sitting ducks as we cannot escape the news itself as we need to know it, such as the weather and traffic. (For those who wish to know more, there is a Wikipedia article about it here: wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypodermic_needle_model ).

Applying this idea to the Matrix, it becomes literal, and more sinister. While you are able to escape technology and the news more easily in real life, the humans of the Matrix do not have this luxury. The Matrix itself is the information/stimulus, and it is being directly infected into humanity’s heads via a large needle. The chance of people rebelling is reduced because the Machines have nearly perfected the programming, allowing for only a small amount of rebellion while the rest remain trapped. Referring to Jean Baudrillard's Simulcra and Simulation (a key inspiration for the Matrix), the reality of the real world has been clouded by the hyperreality of the Matrix, and as such has become the new reality for humanity. While the result of the Imbalanced Equation created Neo, the equation was created from the inability to blind every human 100% of the time, as the Hypodermic Needle theory also realised that not everybody will act uniformly.

TLDR: Hypodermic Needle theory explains why there is an imbalanced equation in the Matrix.

Side note: I'm terrible at expressing thoughts, feel free to ask questions if there are bits that don't sound correct.

PSA: What to do about hypodermic needles and sharps

This is something I see posted here occasionally: What happens if we come across hypodermic needles, and other toxic medical devices?

For metal detectorists, our machines WILL READ THEM! The needle is made of steel, and older needles (1970s or prior) often have a brass or copper ring seal inside the syringe. I have found a few needles with my Discovery 3300. They usually come in on ferrous numbers, 04-07. One of the needles was older, and had the ferrous reading along with copper/aluminum.

So what do we do when we find needles? First, make sure you are an adult (if there are any younger people in the sub). Second, you could call your local health department if you are noticing quite a few needles acquired in a certain area or site (indicating natural dump site from ocean garbage, illegal medical waste dumping, or a "shooting gallery" for drug addicts).

As far as cleanup is concerned, here is something I learned from u/louisdefeo

An adult with gloved hands should pick up and dispose of the needle properly, using a trash grabber if possible to never touch the device. Place the needle end down into a hard plastic container, like a water or soda bottle. Label this bottle "SHARPS", on multiple sides. Seal the bottle. If you have a second plastic container the bottle can fit into, put the bottle in this and also label as "SHARPS". Place both containers into a proper trash receptacle.

The following is my own advice. I have handled countless needles while working security, and a few as a metal detectorist. I echo everything Lou says, and will add on from there:

If you do not have trash grabbers, and only your hands, please wear gloves and use even further caution and common sense if you decide to handle the needle yourself. NEVER TOUCH THE NEEDLE, OR ANYWEHRE NEAR THE BASE OR PLUNGER OF THE SYRINGE!

Gently but firmly secure the center stem of the syringe, using your index finger and thumb. Make sure to lock the syringe between your finger tips so you don't slip and poke yourself (or anyone else) or drop the needle. Finish by following the same procedures as outlined by u/louisdefeo for proper disposal.

Hypodermic Needle Gun? Veterinarian Seringe?

"A hypodermic (hypo – under, dermic – the skin) needle is a hollow needle commonly used with a syringe to inject substances into the body or extract fluids from it. They may also be used to take liquid samples from the body, for example taking blood from a vein in venipuncture. Large-bore hypodermic intervention is especially useful in treating catastrophic blood loss or shock.

A hypodermic needle also provides for rapid delivery of liquids. It is also used when the injected substance cannot be ingested orally, either because it would not be absorbed, as with insulin, or because it would harm the liver."

or

I could be wrong but, upon finding this and searching similar images, I came across something that is kinda weird.

The gun that i found was labeled as a veterinarian seringe, and that made me think, that maybe whoever was there before you, was making some kind of horrible experiences on animals....
