As long as you control for the vestibular response of your subjects -- or have enough to drown the effect out. Having vestibular issues isn't all that uncommon -- my daughter has been seeing an occupational therapist for just that.
Danilo Odell: Yeah, what the hell was that thing?
Lieutenant Worf: Automated fire system. A force field contains the flame until the remaining oxygen has been consumed.
Danilo Odell: Ah, yeah, w-what if I had been under that thing?
Lieutenant Worf: You would have been standing in the fire.
Danilo Odell: Yeah, well, leaving that aside for the moment, I mean, what would have happened to me?

The problem with Plutonium is not its radioactivity, but its toxicity. Extremely small doses are fatal. However, we are still well below that level -- as long as the workers who found it don't get thirsty.

Also, although I am not in Comcast's service area, if I were I don't think I would want to sign a piece of paper saying I used one or more P2P services between two dates. The MPAA and RIAA are way too aggressive to give them even a sliver of help for $16.
Once again the lawyers are the only winners. $16 is farcical, and the total $16 million is a rounding error for Comcast -- it doesn't serve as much incentive against bad behaviour in the future.
