Otherwise Zeno's arrow paradox cannot be solved. To reinstate quickly what the "paradox" is:
- An object traveling from A to B has to pass point C, which is 1/2way between A to B. This is of course experimentally observable - An object traveling from C to B has to pass point D, which is 3/4 way between A to B and halfway between C to D. This is of course experimentally observable - An object traveling from D to B has to pass point E, which is 7/8th way between A to B and halfway between D to B. This is of course experimentally observable
So on and so on.
The paradox is not solvable without the concept of limits where 1/infinity = 0. This is also the foundation in which Newtonian calculus is built on. Seems like a irrefutable empirical evidence for the concept of mathematical infinity
What can an average joe like me do to help make this happen? Free blowjobs? I'll do anything. (But seriously, what could the average brainlet do, if anything?)

I hate chemistry so fucking much. There no fucking logic on it, you're forced to memorise shit. Now memorise this crap, oh but wait there's a billion of exceptions you need to know. I hate even more than biology. Why the fuck my uni forces me to have chemistry in the first semester of my physics degree. REEEEE!!!!
Why is it that every math major I meet they tend to have the same quirky personality and get frustrated so easily when we go off topic in a discussion? It almost like chill man I'm just exploring other stuff.
>>8522935 Physics requires a bit of noodling around. It just does not suit the temperament of mathematicians. Also physicists use a lot of rules of thumbs to arrive at the anser such as the lap post method which mathematicians find horrific.
i keep two sets of notes. one in a barf book thats me just furiously scribbling down everything out of the lecture/textbook, and a separate master codex that i compile all the good stuff into afterwards.
the masterbook is small and i take it EVERYWHERE. if i got 5 minutes in line, i read a page. taking a shit, read a page.
squeezing in pages throughout the day i get 2 hours of solid study time without ever having to sit down and "study".
>>8516308 Masturbate when i feel horny and think of big anime tiddies, since it makes me dumber to not release my sperm and also i need to create more testosterone and think more sharp Study normally but create random problems so i can practice what i learned Good sleep, vitamins and a good amount of water in order to not be dehydrated And finally some coffee so i can have good focus on what i'm learning anyway
Reproductive value (RV) is basically a measure of the amount of offspring a female of a given age can be expected to have over the remainder of her life. By mathematical definition this rises with age up to the beginning of a female's reproductive lifespan, as the probability of her dying before she starts reproducing decreases, and then goes into decline as she uses up her fertile years.
The values in the graph were taken from Amazonian populations which make fairly good models of prehistoric people. In these populations the average age of a girl's first pregnancy... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Imagine dragons existed. What would their mouths be made of? I know proteins denature at a certain temperature, so their flames should reach a terminal temperature. The question is, how hot will the flame be? And what organic material will their mouths be made of, assuming their flame is an orange/red one? Provide proof for your answer.
Being a member of the reptile family, they likely spit combustible material the same way a cobra spits venom. All combustion would take place in front of their face, not in the mouth. So there's no need for specialized teeth or mouth features.
What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target.

An experimenter is interested in the effect of a new drug on alertness. They gave half of their participants a stimulant, while the other half received a placebo. Participants’ alertness was measured using a standardised questionnaire that they completed both before they took the drug, and 15 minutes after taking it. What statistical test should be used to analyse the data collected from this study?
>>8526114 Yes, but it would be useless. You can't practice medicine without a license and you can't get a license without a degree. Memorizing symptoms of illnesses (which is what med school is) will be useless
Hey /sci/, I wanted to know your ideas for Renewable energy. I think it would be interesting if we used some sort of magnet powered wheel. One positive and one negative magnet pushing against each other causing spin. (Something like this picture)
IF god exists in a accelerating reference frame, then wouldn't that mean that F=ma, the basics of all current knowledge of physics, wouldn't work and therefore you can't say using your knowledge of physics that god cannot exist, since your math is incorrect?
Oh, don't worry I expect you guys to come in and tell me I'm wrong in a thousand different ways, but the truth is I won't bother to read and of your shitposts.

Ok fellow medfags, it's time for a HIPAA approved, totally anonymous case. Today, we have a 82 year old lady with a past medical history of ovarian cancer that is presenting with passing out once and shortness of breath. What's your differential diagnosis?
last night I got an awful sharp pain in my upper stomach, I drank 400 mL milk, lukewarm and an orange about 2 hrs before I got the pain, I eat healthy and exercise and other than asthma I'm a healthy fuck. Pain disappeared 2-3 hrs later when I was in bed and I was trying to sleep on my stomach
I've had ulcers and appendicitis before, this was different, now stomach is alright, just a bit sensitive
my nonmd diagnosis is heartburn / ibs / extreme gas
>>8524764 Not an MD, but I would say I have enough knowledge about medicine. It is probably heartburn but you should consult your doctor if it continues to happen also explain the pain a bit more is like stabbing, does it radiate ? etc.
>>8524440 >people sometimes medicalize relatively normal personal problems? Allen Francis, lead Ed. of DSM-IV, has said that psychiatry has inappropriately medicalized 'normal life'.

OP here. I don't know if I was clear, but this is a serious board, I know that probably it can be viewed by some people like a bait because of the title but no. I could pick some better title anyway...
I'm asking these things because I have some bad thoughts you know what I mean and I'm apathetic as fuck but don't talk about it with my family because of commentaries I heard about this issue so I'm always pretenting to be smiling and happy...
>more investment in nuclear and fusion power >more efficient and viable electric cars, renewables >relying less on the middle east for oil >relying less on dead organic material to fuel our cars >cleaner air and water
I don't see why anyone would deny it with all the evidence. In the end, even if it turns out to be false, we still get a lot of benefits from trying to solve it.

What kind of grading scheme do you like better and think is more effective for STEM? Only a minimal amount of grades (like, where only midterm and final count) or lots of graded quizzes/ homework assignments/ specific tests that make major exams worth less, or something in between?
I got to a big state uni and it's basically like high school with how much homework and tests we have, and from what I've gathered it seems more prestigious uni's just have a midterm and a final with maybe a lower weight quiz halfway between each, especially in upper level courses.

those are europe schools. american universities focus heavily on application and grinding the material into you. its literally why our schools are the best in the world, because we cram the material down your throat and make autistic test babbies do group projects to get them used to working with real live human beings.
