The Earth is not a convex sphere drifting through space.
The Earth is concave.
Prove me wrong.

Heres a fun one, shouldnt take you long. Bonus points for recognising the guy in the picture without using google.
there's two people to each hand shake to the total number of handshakes must be even. the sum of the handshakes of people with an even number must be even. the difference between the total handshake and the total handshakes of people with even number of handshake must be even since both are even. therefore the number of people with odd handshake which is equal to the difference must also be even.
now gtfo you pleb, this isn't science or maths.
Total handshakes H is even because each handshake involves two people. The number of handshakes by people with an even number of handshakes is even since it is the sum of even numbers. The number of handshakes by people with an odd number of handshakes O must also be even since
H = E + O
Since O is even yet it is the sum of odd numbers, it must be the sum of an even number of odd numbers.
here is the next one. the question is poorly worded but i wasnt sure how to explain it, so ask if its not clear
I feel like Physical Engineering doesn't get mentioned enough in here. I plan on entering it next year. What do you people think of it? Isn't it cool that you learn physics but also get a job that's not sitting on a chair with your head between your hands?
/sci/, Im at a loss, I just watched a documentary of the Twin Towers and the impossible physics behind their collapse.
Is it true a building that tall 546m, was able to collapse that fast within 6 seconds?
I need help understanding the dynamics of the collapse. How is it possible, it cannot be recreated on floor models.
No this is not some meme, I want serious discussion.
Plus, how in the ever living hell could the Steel infrastructure of the Towers collapse so fast under oxygen choked heat?
>/sci/, Im at a loss
Yes, you already lost.
>No this is not some meme, I want serious discussion.
You came to a meme board. If you want serious discussion:
i didn't know philip
i hadnt heard of him until 2 days ago
but i dont think its right someone so hard done by can just disappear into the aether, i want someone to see this and maybe remember his name

Can anybody point me to a fairly accessible book on Bayesian statistics?
I've been really into statistics and probability lately, but I'm not really sure I have enough background to dive right into any relatively advanced textbook, so I'd preferably like something that's fairly digestible.
I thought about a possible way to work around the odds of the lottery and make them lose money. There are probably many many numbers chosen multiply by many people, that are all failing numbers but contribute to the pot. At the same time, there can be no two winners at the same time, but since the odds are heavily stacked against individual people anyway, this outcome is unlikely.

What are some good scientific fields not spoken of often on /sci/?
Do you meditate /sci? Seems it has a lot of health benefits.
Is this the best book for learning multivariable calculus?
I understand her bridges are only a tool for geometrical theories.
Is that a big restriction?
Okay, let me ask something related:
Why are geometric theories singled out in the first place?
Why are theories with axioms that have more complicated quantifier structure not captured as easily?
>mfw non engineers are literally the plebs of STEM.
Why even do STEM when you're not part of the patricianeer ruling class?
>never get an understanding of condensed matter physics, CPU design, superconductors, lasers, tunneling microscopes, crystallography, lithography, ultra-capacitors, thermoplastic elastomers and electroactive polymers
is physics 90% math? or 100% math? or 50% math?
and what is the remaining percentage (unless you say it's 100% math) ?
i could only come up with quantum physics (possibly) which i guess is statistics and probability... but that's also math, isn't it?
to me it seems like physics is 100% math + real world situations. essentially applied mathematics.
quick help me so i can win this debate vs my gf.
I want to go to space before I die. What are the chances of space travel becoming common in the near future?
Quite possible my friend :^) Here you see one of your fellow shitfrog taking a breathtaking trip to the endless space. The future is truly here =^)
