I have a light with a grounded plug that I want to use on a timer I have on hand. Problem is the timer only accepts two pronged cords. Could I use one of these cheater plugs and connect the ground tab via ring terminal to a grounded cord plugged in close by?
What is /sci/'s impression of the National University of Singapore? It's ranked 13 on Times ranking for engineering, better than Cornell and Rice university. Is this university legitimately good?
What if black holes are civilizations that have attempted traveling in four dimensions and it caused so much entropy it caused it to form?
I'm not really sure if this is the right place to ask but I figure its more of a /sci/ question than a /his/ one.
I've been reading Natural History by Pliny the Elder and I'm wondering if there's any scientific validity to any of the cures mentioned.
Obviously I'm not looking to try any of them out and I also realise that something like anthrax probably can't be cured with a mixture of oak-charcoal and honey.
So ever since late last year there's been this subculture of pooping spreading (no pun intended) called squattypotty. It apparently states that pooping in a natural position, such as a squat just like our ancestors did, provides health benefits. I couldn't find any real research to back...

Jesus fucking Christ, fucking Americans. If they didn't eat so much garbage they wouldn't have defecation problems in the first place.
Satan couldn't have invented such a disgusting populace.
>tfw american and underweight and over 180cm
>when i was a kid i always ate a lot of junk food
>kids around me told me id get fat in the future
>today those kids who ate "good" are all fat as fuck and i'm still thin as fuck
So /sci/ could we one day build our own universes and escape there or will the heat death of the universe fuck us over inevitably assuming we even make it that far?
What's your favorite branch of math?
The rules are simple, decode the code and post a picture of the answer, along with your method.
The code is: 145519121631191914312121

I need some recommendations. Trig and chem oriented.
What is the answer to this equation, not using a calculator or Google
So, I'm starting to struggle with my medicine degree in the final year, I've basically spent most of my time so far playing video games and masturbating. Is there a scientific method to combat this demon?
Just don't become a NEET. Some people phase out of this well, for lack of a better word phase. I've played video games my whole life and I wonder when I will quit. You can use other less time \-consuming sources of media or get a new hobby. As for the porn situation, just go outside man.
The problem is it has become an ingrained habit, I've been doing it habitually since my early teens. For instance, if I go onto the computer to do some research, write an essay or simply check social media, I end up debasing myself with some disgusting fetishism shit because I have to look for ever more extreme forms.
You study in the library or on campus somewhere where whipping your dick out isn't an option.
Ex. I'm a grad student and when I need to study and ensure that I don't have distractions, I go to my grad student office and study there with my laptop. Studying at home is too often interrupted by masturbation marathons so I basically don't even try it anymore.
Im going to a tech college in my state for some sort of engineering. I want to talk to chemical engineers, because I think chemistry is super cool, but I got an 80 C in chemistry these last years because it is very difficult. Should i worry much? Thanks.
The tube part was a bit of an exaggeration, but we really don't use a whole lot of chemistry (depending on what exactly you do, this will vary). Most of the time we work with flow rates of things, thermodynamics, reactor operations and all sorts of equilibrium stuff. The majority of us don't go anywhere near things like organic chemistry.
Why does infrared EM radiation feel warm on my skin, but blue or green visible light from an LED, even a strong one, does not feel warm on my skin?
If a bunch of people jump into a pool one by one, they're going to significantly shake up the water. If you get them to all jump in at the same time, you're going to have a decent amount of water ejected from the pool, and then it's no longer shaking. Or if you drop a car into the pool, same thing happens.
There is such a thing as too much energy. With atoms and molecules, the energy that causes jiggling is easier to absorb than the energy that causes significant changes like the ejection of an electron, or the changing of electronic states. What you feel...

ignore this guy. its flat out wrong.
my sense is its to do with intensity. a toaster/oven uses >300 watts but leds are <10 I think.
might also have something to do with biology but thats not my field. high intensity visible/ultraviolet causes sunburns/cancer but you dont feel it.
Does introducing heat into something make it slower or faster, why and can you give an example?
Temperature is a measurement of the vibration of atoms, thus gradually raising the temperature of liquid water will eventually cause the molecules to vibrate so quickly they change state into gas.
