A unit square is cut into rectangles. Each of them is coloured by either yellow or blue and inside it a number is written. If the color of the rectangle is blue then its number is equal to rectangle’s width divided by its height. If the color is yellow, the number is rectangle’s height divided by its width. Let x be the sum of the numbers in all rectangles. Assuming the blue area is equal to the yellow one, what is the smallest possible x?

Have you guys heard of Rich Piana's 8 hour arms workout? It's a routine this guy invented which consists of alternating the same arm exercises (tricep extension and curls) for 8 hours and drinking a lot of protein shakes inbetween. He claims you can gain 1 inch of arm circumference within 1 session.
An anon on /fit/ said this routine could cause rhabdomyolysis. Is this true? Can a long workout really lead to such severe medical complications? From reading the wikipedia I, as a layman, would assume it's... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I always wondered if we could say predict what an alien language sounds like (phonetically) (if they speak one that is). Because our hearing is firstly limited to a certain set of frequencies and I am assuming that all languages do have a collection of similar sounds like the "b" sound.
So I have been wondering what would actually be found if someone was to do something like this. Obviously it would be a lot of work collecting sounds and grouping them according to the phonetic sounds.
Can someone recommended important, informative, scientific, factual, literature (papers/books) on happiness?
Things the literature could address for me to consider it informative/important include:
How it changes across your lifespan (so, hedonic set points and such), it's diminishing returns with money (up to $80,000 as studies show) addressing the Easterlin paradox, or other topics relevant to living a happy life for the average (or close to average) person.

I'd prefer scientific and factual literature because being mislead on such an important topic usually doesn't turn out well, since you'd eventually stumble upon the correct (or most agreeable) opinion by which time you might have invested on your time in the wrong activities.
Who wants to go on the journey with me? I'm going to take the plunge and try and read about 2 chapters a week (at least for the beginning). I'll be answering all the problems and would like another anon to answer them with me.
Genetically defined sexual characteristics which are both physical phenotypes and due to hormonal base hormonal levels are the best predictors of phenomenological gender behaviour, only hormone levels can arguably be changed without destroying the organism. Sex and therefore gender is then mostly genetic.

What a nice read anon, thank you.
Now that we know that all women groups are inherently inferior I wonder.
What is more efficient? All male groups, 50/50 groups or some other distribution of males and females?
If only butthurt feminists would be kicked out of academia so that sociologists could actually carry out this kind of research. It very well could be that a 50/50 distribution is ideal but we won't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

I don't know if this is really /sci/ territory, but I cannot imagine where else this would go: Is there a situation in which raising animals, be it cattle, pork, poultry, fish, or insects, would utilize some area of land better than a crop? Surely there are situations in which the ground is too poor to sustain plants like wheat, beans, vegetables, etc., but would support grasses that grazers eat?
Anyone got any literature to read about this, or any 2 cents to put into this?
>>7757417 Yes but I have no citations. There are areas in the middle East and Africa that aren't suitable for crops but can sustain livestock of some varieties. I think there may be some similar areas in the western US too but I'm not sure.
Note: I am talking about NON-AMERICAN countries where you can major in Medicine, Law, etc as an UNDERGRADUATE)
Some high school students who got extremely good grades in their finals (i.e. good enough for Medicine in non-American countries) decide to major in stuff such as Physics, Anthropology, Linguistics, Chemistry, etc. in the hope of doing research in the future. Why would they pick that?
>If you don't have anything published, your funding will be cut and you will have no income >There is no guarantee that you will like research and most people hate if over time >Jobs are meant to be monotonous, not fun >They can easily major in Medicine, Law, Actuarial Science, Dentistry science, etc and switch to research later on or do a Master's degree in their area of interest >The market for researchers is very bad at the moment - it is 100+ people competing for a tenured professorship post and it will not be you getting that job >Being an adjunct professor sucks as all the contracts are short-termed >It is hard to even secure a mortgage with such unstable employment >If you can't find any professorship job, it is hard to find anyone else to hire you as they know that you will go back to academia as soon as you find another professorship job, so chances are you will either end up unemployed or working at McDonalds during this time
