>>7776420 > in this case water to H and back again
What do you mean back again, it just has to go to H, not back again?
I just found this post however: https://www.quora.com/How-much-water-can-you-split-into-hydrogen-and-oxygen-using-electrolysis-with-one-kilowatt-hour-of-electricity "1 kilowatt hour of electricity can split about 270 grams of water"
270g water would give an energy of about 7,14Wh, meaning you'd have less then 10% efficiency, so that settles... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Is cancer basically nature's way of saying "fuck you, you guys weren't meant to live that long or be anything more than primitive apes"? Why hasn't an effective treatment for destroying cancerous cells without killing normal cells been found yet?
Is there any real way forward as a species other than genetic engineering and/or cybernetic enhancements?
>>7776264 >"fuck you, you guys weren't meant to live that long or be anything more than primitive apes" Nature doesn't mean for anything to happen, meaning is a human fabrication.
>Why hasn't an effective treatment for destroying cancerous cells without killing normal cells been found yet? There are a variety of promising methods. There's a difference between discovering a treatment, having it peer-reviewed, testing it on a... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Male here. 6 inches, uncut. How do I go about determining the absolute minimum volume my penis is capable of occupying? I'm not interested so much in the absolute maximum flaccidity, but the minimum volume.
Meaning, as my penis exists right now, across all possible contexts except for those that result in damage, what is its minimum volume?
The simplest proof is to use a combinatoric tree. Suppose you have a coin, what's the probability of tossing it twice and getting heads both times? The first toss has 2 possibilities (heads or tails), then each of these tosses has two branches for the second toss (again, heads or tails). The total sample space is therefore 4. Heads, heads, represents one event out of the 4. Hence probability =1/4 or 1/2 * 1/2
What is interesting is that although you may think having the lottery numbers 1,2,3,4,5,6 has just as much chance as any other combination, in fact because it is a run of consecutive numbers it is a far less likely outcome
I'm curious about a certain process. Let's say that you discovered something big in the field of physics. I don't know what, something game-changing. Maybe you figured out quantum relativity, I dunno.
As the guy who developed said theory/new law, how would you go about discussing it with your colleagues without having one of them reword your paper and claim it as their own? How do you properly protect yourself from academic theft so that you can share your ideas without an Edison walking in and snatching them up and putting his name overtop of yours?

You can't. But it's ok, since discovery for the sake of discovery is the ultimate incentive. What makes this problem more interesting is that revolutionary theories tend to be simultaneously discovered by different people in the same era. If you've discovered something groundbreaking, it's likely that only a few people in the world truly understand how groundbreaking it actually is, even after you explain it to them.

would it be possible for two earth-like planets in a binary orbit to sustain life? would it basically just be like having a larger moon or would there be more visible gravitational effects than just the tide? obviously the range in distance that would make the effects lesser or greater, so just assume they would be as close as possible pic wildly unrelated but good to know
>>7776034 I'd say it's possible but from my own research (was writing a short story for it) there are several issues.
1) Tidal locking might make both planets unable to rotate (depending on how old this system is) though this can be alleviated by their revolution around their gravitational center.
2) Tidal forces would be monstrous. If for some reason both planets are still rotating, they would have a noticeable bulge in the crust that always faces its twin and tides would be tens to hundreds of meters.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
