Scientists and researchers teach for money and research for glory.
Engineers engineer for money.
The scientist that does something great is special because the only incentive scientists have to publish is so that they are not dropped by their university so they could research anything. Most go for the low hanging fruit so that they can publish various papers a year without having to spend that much time. That is why those who go for the really hard questions despite...

So 2 years ago I fucked up real bad, and dropped out of school temporarily b/c of some alcohol + drug problems.
I got clean, and since then I have been working as hard as I possibly can to do well and fulfill my dream of working for the ESA. I might even get into Cambridge if I can secure an A* in Further Maths (!!!).
But... i think its making all my old friends hate me. I just had this conversation with one of my friends...
Is he right? Am I always going to alienate people and make them hate me?
>>7731442 this is going to sound like it came from facebook but... there will always be people who accept that you don't always have time for them if this kid can't let you live the way you are then he is not a true friend don't stray from what you're doing the world needs people as responsible as you
WTF is this GRE? Why are anglos need thousands of formal words to communicate? How am I supposed to memorize all of them? Why is it a requirement for engineering schools? How is this gonna help me become a good engineer?
>>7731278 This. If you were MIT material you would have looked this up about a year ago. You can still go for it though OP. Yes you will probably need to wait another year if test dates don't work for you.
>>7731258 >Is a girl's lust for big dick in any way related to biological benefits. No. Very unlikely. Not sure all women lust after sheer size either, most probably don't.
>Who feels more pleasure during sex, assuming the partners are both 10/10. Depends on mental state and context for each partner, as well as individual physiology / genital morphology. As well as if the male is circumcised.
Too many factors to really say anything. It's... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>7731098 Critical thinking is something you should have developed on your own as a child. Taking a class on critical thinking is like taking a class on breathing or walking. Only the most deficient individuals need it, and they are most likely so deficient that they cannot even learn from it.
>This course is designed to bring students to a critical awareness of the function of argumentation in the various forms it takes, both in the academic realm of logic, as well as the everyday world of television, newspapers, and other forms of communication. Students will examine how arguments are constructed and the means that are used to make an argument convincing. They will learn to critically analyze arguments in order to detect careless language use... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Anyone here quit STEM professionally? I originally just came here because /diy/ was useless for calculations but now I stay because it feels good to sit back and watch all the rats gnawing at each other now that I am not one of them. >Elitism >Autism >Study till you drop culture >Stimulant culture >Mundane lab work because all the juicy stuff has already been done >Endless exams Comment too long.

>Elitism Pure maths elitists are fooling themselves if they think they're employable, whereas engineers and technicians are some of the most down to earth people I've ever met >Autism The very definition of autism is a maths nerd. Applied scientists and engineers however are usually pretty normal in my experience. >Study till you drop culture It's study till you graduate culture, actually. What's the matter, kid,...

>>7730918 Calculations that are incredibly massive, which can range from realistic graphics simulations (Read the Wiki article over the topic Fast Inverse Square Root), to weather forecasts, to population analysis and pattern recognition.
Uni let's you know there are thousands of individuals around you who are smarter, more disciplines and better looking who still won't be successful, because there are tens of thousands even better than them in the state, hundreds of thousands better than them in the country, millions better than them in the world.
>>7730893 Not necessarily. Hell, most people I know fuck up at least one class as a freshman. A lot of people are good at hiding the fact and it may seem like you're the only one who's not getting it, but trust me, MOST if not all get a slap in the face as freshmen. Personally I got a D in programming 101 and I felt like an idiot because, like you, I had always been good in high school
But, just this last semester I had calc 4, object-oriented programming, fluid mechanics and thermophysics and I aced all 4.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

Depends on how much I struggled with the material throughout the semester. Full review for anything with subpar regular exam scores, with a focus on the topics covered by those poor exams. Something like Chem deserves a full review, whether you think you need it or not, but I honestly didn't have enough time for that this month. It had to take a hit for some math and physics review. I might have just barely gotten a rounded A in the course, if I had scored perfectly on that exam. The last thing that you want to have rusty concepts for is Calc. You might be able...
