Everyone knows that sufficiently advanced science is indistinguishable from magic, but how do *I* become a wizard using the power of science?
>So, you're saying biology is not a science.
>Hmmmm, we will talk after I will save your life.
>You know, anon, I'm like a super-hero, I save lives.Human lives !
>Can you do that with your meme-degree ? Right, you can't.
>Don't forget to pay your health insurance. I need these money to travel, to exotic places.
>By the way, did you see my new Lamborghini car ?
Holy shit when you think about we're all just water.
Just walking, talking sacks of water.
You're at the club and this guy proves your girlfriend's conjecture.
What do you do?
Do sniper account for the Coriolis effect?
There are people debunking the guy. What do you think?
What evidence is there for infinite possible universes? It seems like someone made that up and the world just ran with it.
there is no evidence that can prove or disprove infinite universes. It's less of a scientific theory and more of a neat idea.
We may have proof of parallel universes, but infinite universes cannot be proven.
I am more intelligent than average but not as happy as plainer people.
Can smart people be happy /sci/?
Prove convincingly to me that the real numbers exist.
Come on, /sci/, you should be able to do this.
Assume that only a single number exists, say 1.
We know that 1 = 1
Assuming that 1 exists add 1.
1 + 1 = 2, a newly defined number
We proved that any x + 1 = a new number
this holds for all cases
guise- where am i fucking up?
>Named EPIC 204278916, the star is estimated to be about the size of our Sun in diameter, but has only half its mass.
>The researchers report that over 78.8 days of observations, EPIC 204278916 displayed irregular dimming of up to 65 percent for around 25 consecutive days.
Maybe we aren't alone as we thought?
If you nerds are so smart, why don't you play poker?
>In college, she was on the Dean's list. After studying some game theory, she became proficient with the Rubik's Cube and then chess. However, because she considers both to be fairly objective static games, she began to prefer poker, which incorporated human psychology that allows for inferior hands to win. She graduated early from Duke University after two and a half years with a major in economics and a minor in political science in December 2003. Her collegiate duration of two and a half years was the shortest time to graduate in the history of Duke.
>A poker player since the age of five, Rousso began serious poker tournament play during her summer break from law school. Rousso was in the top 5% of her law school class, but she did not finish law school. Now, excluding online winnings, she ranks among the top five women in poker history in terms of all-time money winnings.
>In 2007, she earned $700,782.50, her largest career payday at that time, during the World Championship of Online Poker NL Hold'em Main Event with a second-place finish in the 2998-entrant field.
>As of July 2011, her tournament winnings exceed $3,100,000. In May 2009, Rousso won the 79-entrant €25,000 EPT High Roller Championship, which had a first prize of 720,000 Euros. However, at the final table, the three final contestants elected to chop chips at €420,000 and leave €150,000 for the winner. The €570,000 win, which converts to $749,467,
>As of 2015, Rousso has finished in the money in numerous live poker events and accumulated over $3,500,000 in career earnings.
Started practicing it seriously during my masters. After a while I realized I just didn't like it this much, and it's very, very serious time investment. I'm talking "taking a second job" time investment here, not just "weekend hobby".
>but the money
yeah you can make some good money, but given the time investment you could make that much money in other ways. And I'd rather make it doing something I like.
Junk foods have high concentrations of certain amino acids which can be converted in the body to neurotransmitters. These are chemicals which pass messages between nerves. If an excess of these chemical messengers should accumulate, then too many messages are being transmitted in the brain, leading to the disruptive behavior observed in susceptible individuals. (ex: american children, americans, etc)
Prove me wrong.
Why the fuck does water evaporate
Molecules vibrate more the hotter they get, so when liquid water is heated to a certain point, the molecules vibrate so strongly that they break the bonds that hold each other together. Without these bonds, the molecules float freely into the air as vapor.
> this is a picture of Ceres by NASA
and people still believe they sent the men to the moon and that the earth is not flat, jesus, they can't into basic photoshop anymore.
I agree with you my fellow truth-seeker.
Worry not, however, because when the Chinese land on the moon, they will not find the American flag up there, and the scandal will be revealed.
Is our galaxy just an atom?
only red-pilled equations here
Why don't we just clone Einstein, Von Neumann and shit?
I get Einstein but why neumann? He's a below average mathematician who has zero contributions to anything.
We should get the relativity team together and respawn Borh and Lorentz along with Einstein.
What's the highest concentration of neanderthal DNA ever found in a modern day human? I know that in all of samples so far in some of these studies we've found up to 20% of the neanderthal genome but individuals rarely exceed, if ever, 5%. Am I just ignorant and don't know about a few extraordinary cases? Do you guys think as more and more studies are conducted and the sample size grows that we'll find individuals with higher concentrations of neanderthal DNA? Please discuss.
How would you go about in-home tutoring your average IQ child on math?
Go all in on algebraic structures and combinatorics t.b.h.
It's the kind of shit that's adapted to a child's brain. Like puzzles.
And it sure will teach them more about thinking than solving fucking triple integrals would.
The pentagon could easily fit through. He just has to go point-first longwise.
Just looked up the Vitali set, and the quotient group R/Q is really confounding me. On the one hand it must exist since the cardinality of R is greater than of Q, but on the other you can't construct a single element in R/Q!
Please help me reconcile this.
Is hypnosis for real ?
The other day I was fooling arround with my Geiger counter and it started going tic tic tic tic, extremely high rad levels and the pointer was off the charts.
I started freaking out and no matter where I gone it wouldn't stop so I went to a hospital and told the doctor I what was going on, I was crying and afraid to die, turns out that the counter was simply broken and I was embarassed because I had wet my pants in front of a cute nurse.
Post your /sci/ related stories.
How do I into von Neumann mode? I already got the overeating habit covered
First you need to be born into a very rich family, as well as being born with natural talent. Next you get the best available tutors and have no expense spared toward you as you pursue your hobbies. At this point you should join one of the world's most prestigious schools aimed at fostering a new generation of elites. Internalize your motivations, and never stop trying to attain more knowledge
I'm a mathematician, but looking at a lot of important PDE's from mathematical physics I noticed that a lot of them (for example, Laplace, Poisson, Helmholtz, wave, diffusion, scalar potential, Klein-Gordon, Shrödinger) are linear equations.
Can someone give some physical reason as to why?
are there any good sci-fi series out there, lately?
recently i got hooked on "the expanse" but hell, where did that genre go?
(appart from shitty productions with political correctness aka "we need at least a homosexual and a black on the cast and make the targeted audience 12-16)
any good recommendation and in case you didn't watch it: watch it. (it's even close to the books)
It won't return until 2017.
Nothing else much of note really.
The Strain is fairly okay, but different genre (horror with some medical sci-fi.) Everything has gone further and further into the pleb realm and sci-fi is really taking a backseat for the most part. 1 or 2 good shows or movies is basically nothing in a sea of piss. Even the remake of the Andromeda Strain wasn't good; fucking remakes man.
Hey guys, so I'm taking differential equations and I feel like such a dumbass cause I got stuck on this integral. How would I go about evaluating this? I know it's integration by parts but that thing just turns into a monster.
why are most scientists Christians?
What exists beyond abstraction?
I love to code but I find CS shit extremelly boring.
I'm really talented for math but I find it extremelly boring and rather learn music or drawing or humanities.
I need some motivation to help me pick software engineering rather than literature.
You hardly ever encounter math in undergrad CS courses. It's pure code monkeying all the way, just like the memes suggest.
