>he thinks having a high IQ means he doesn't have to work hard
Terence Tao literally does nothing else but work hard. His work ethic is one of his most impressive traits.
You don't have a high IQ, you're just doing baby problems.
Is there a way I could be genetically enhanced to increase my intelligent and other features?
I know that geneticist has achieved biologically altering the genes of developing fetuses. however, I'm unaware if if they able to do the same for adults.
Also, can it be inherited as a dominate gene?
>genetically enhanced to increase my intelligent and other features
not unless you're a very early fetus + science is not nowhere that for (and even if it would be, it would probably considered "unethical" by some dirty liberal hippies)
>inherited as a dominate gene
Yeah, a highly complex trait like that is going to be on one gene. Sure, m8.
I really hope you're not older than 12, because mentally you surely are not.
Are there any health benefits to losing a pint of blood once in a while?
If you've got hereditary hemochromatosis you sure need to. Your body doesn't get rid of excess iron properly. You need to bleed it out.
That's a genetic disase that affects about 0.5% of Northern Europeans. It only kills people slowly and conveys resistance to certain infections, so it may have been much more common in the past, after epidemics killed most of the people with a normal iron metabolism, possibly explaining why bloodletting was such a popular thing.
DUDE COOKING IS SCIENCE LMAO
I've often wondered if he understands 100% of what he's saying when he describes the chemistry of cooking or if it's just a script he's reading off of and he isn't really interested in fully comprehending absolutely everything in there.
How important is university choice?
'Do you think,' said Caesar, 'I have not just cause to weep, when I consider that Alexander at my age had conquered so many nations, and I have all this time done nothing that is memorable?'
you can do it, anon!
/sci/ I need help
I'm writing an abstract for a research proposal and my PI told me to include something about Detailed Characterization. I didn't want to ask her what that was, because I'm sure she already thinks I'm stupid. So I come to you for help.
tl;dr what is detailed characterization.
it might help if you provided some context - what do you work on?
If it involves some kind of biochemistry/biology then 'detailed characterization' likely means that working out the structure of some macromolecule like a protein was an important part of the project.
Read some abstracts of papers previously published by your PI.
Will they ever learn?
Don't see how having to duck when walking in a door makes you master race, if anything, being in the Goldilocks zone of height would make you master race. You're just a gangly freak.
What made you major in maths? What are you guys going to do in the future?
Not him but I started disliking the sciences back in high school. I was always good at them but the lack of precision and the limitations of nature made me feel powerless doing it and thus it wasn't very enjoyable.
Math on the other hand let's me explore my ideas in more depth without running into stupid issues such as: is this possible?
I'd like to do research or some comfy software dev
>Master's in mathematics
>2+ years of teaching experience
>not a fatass, dwarf, or giant
>Distant and near visual acuity must be correctable to 20/20, each eye. The use of glasses is acceptable.
>The use of glasses is acceptable.
Huh, I actually -do- qualify.
Alright /sci/, I am looking to get into mathematics that is oriented toward cryptography. Understanding discrete mathematics that would be relevant, and things such as SHA, MD5, and Blowfish etc.
I'm a drunk genius ask me anything
So consciousness is just a byproduct of perception, right?
Is this enough to major in math?
Holy fuck, I understand that this is complete bait, but Jesus fucking Christ on a bicycle. How high you score on some online IQ test has no bearing on how good you are at math. If you have some mathematical intuition with the drive and desire to do math, then yes that is good enough. If you don't have that drive and intuition, you could have an IQ much higher, but it wouldn't be relevant to being a math major. For fucks sake just go die, and take this shit with you.
