Let's talk about medicines that the western world ridicules but is actually useful and effective.
1) Cannabis - I don't think I really need to go in to depth here. The uses are numerous and it's incredibly safe when eaten or vaporized.
2) Colloidal silver - Potent antibiotic. Very safe. Undesired side effect if applied topically and then exposed to the sun - can turn the skin blue. Although this is very rare and easily avoided. Robert Becker demonstrated that if you apply colloidal silver to wounds and pass a small current through the wound, tissue... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
1) Lots of western nations allow cannabis for pain/nausea treatment. It has no other proven uses, really. 2) Antibiotics developed since, I dunno, 1910 are far better and less harmful. Mostly it's alt-med bullshit these days. Passing current through any wound stimulates healing; the silver has nothing to do with it. 3) No. 4) No. 5) No. 6) Perhaps. Or you could end up like my yoga teacher, with a fucked up spine, unable to walk or sit properly. Almost everyone who does yoga regularly ends up with a serious injury from it. 7/8/9) Yes, just ignore the side effects.
How does someone become a "golden boy" as a lot of people call it? Do you get a perfect GPA, go to universities with small classes, etc?
A golden boy as people seem to refer to is: Someone who is groomed and/or mentored by someone to actually become something in a field instead of a replaceable lab rat who gets burned from going into grad school.
It involves really actually caring about your field, and wanting to learn, explore, and do everything there is to be done in it. And yes, the bigshots are well capable of telling that apart from fakes.
what should i do if i wanted to have my thesis ready for when i finish taking all my classes, as a math undergrad? is it possible to do it without a professor? or at least only have minor details to work on
Have you ever realized that people openly block advancing technology unless they're in a war desperate to kill the enemy? Technology gets shot down my contrarians today when during Nazi Germany stuff like the EM drive, Skylon and Nuclear pulse propulsion would have gotten "fuck it why not?" government funding. Everything the Nazis funded was originally trashed by Western scientists. Rocketry, you bet your sweet ass no Western government would have poured $50 billion into Goddard's research which was what the Nazis spent on the V-2. Even the jet engine, Whittle...

I'm just about to graduate with a BS in Biology next week, but still have a thesis to write, and I'm fairly confused.
We're supposed to write a 10 page paper about an experiment conducted in the lab, having done so with a different paper as a reference for the experimental outline, and I doubt I could fill 10 pages. Most scientific papers are less than 10 pages and the experiment we conducted in the lab was fairly simple and straightforward.
What's your experience with undergrad theses? Any advice?
>>7726772 Well, we're supposed to include graphs from flow cytometry and provide an introduction about the specific chemical that was used to test cytotoxicity, which is basically the whole experiment. Materials and methods, conclusion, etc.
I mean you could easily fill some 5 pages, but 10 is really a stretch and I'm wondering how people do it.
I know medical research is notorious for this, and unfortunately it's par for the course, but how can it be that there are dozens if not hundreds of published studies bluntly claiming that the human foreskin has no role in sexual sensitivity? It's astounding how strong cultural and personal bias can be, that these not only get published but highly cited for what seems like relatively shoddy research.
The majority of the world's male population can reach in their pants and readily disprove these results. What happened to science such that it became not only acceptable, but encouraged to ignore empirical data and subjective experience in favor of "data", without even attempting to explain why the individual might falsely believe they're having whatever experience?
I can't imagine what the rest of the developed world is thinking about the US. Whatever drives this attitude obviously leads to disastrous results and prevents poor practices from being uprooted and criticised for what they are, and it isn't limited to just infant genital cutting. It doesn't matter if some large entity comes forward to admit they were wrong, driven by personal bias, or monetarily motivated. It's about a lack of solid research and critical thought.
What is wrong with us? You would think an aversion to compromising the sexual health of members of one's tribe would be one of the most highly conserved higher behaviors there is, aside from cases of control / domination. We're such a strange thing. It's an unpleasant feeling to know what is being done to children who can't meaningfully consent, and knowing things take a very long time to fizzle out if they ever do at all. There is so many things that are just fucked, but we can't even get them outlawed or regulated, much less scientifically and culturally frowned upon with some sort of consensus. Here, take some cholesterol and blood pressure meds too while you're at it, don't change your garbage diet you overpay for.
>>7727550 It's really fucking rude of you not to bother reading any of the links I posted (10+ on HIV alone) and expect me to read yours. Seriously, fuck off. Here's some of them directly taken from those two links I posted so you need to make even less effort to be a dick.
Learning new stuff is very difficult at first, but after some time it becomes easy. Sometimes I'll leave something for 24 hours, go do something retarded like shit post on 4chan, and come back later to learn/solve the problem with very little difficulty.
It's now the 17, yesterday was sunny and shit, it's 2AM and it's raining here in GA. Tomorrow? Sunny. So like whats the dealioh and why the shit do they think this is going to happen? In the comment section they contradict everything being said. Also, why the hell is my Christmas going to be 73F. Can someone explain that shit to me?
Can you get a staph infection from popping a pimple and not cleaning/covering it properly? I read a thread on reddit where someone popped a pimple, absentmindedly touched it during the day, and then developed a MRSA infection. Something tells me the pimple he popped was the beginning of a MRSA infection since early on, it often appears as a whitehead. Sometimes my pimples pop on their own so this shit is terrifying.
>>7726169 you clean your popped pimples with hydrogen peroxide? hasn't hydrogen peroxide been found to be pointless? my understanding is that it doesn't kill shit and it may actually damage tissue, hindering wound healing.
>>7726163 Even tiny scratches can kill you man, if it wasn't for modern medicine. I was scratched on my leg by my cat when I was a kid. It got infected and made this "hole" in my leg about 1/2 cm in diameter and 1cm deep. It burned like hell.
Doctor had to cut way the dead flesh and I had to take antibiotics. It wasn't anything as bad as an MRSA infection, but still. Living in a pre-antibiotics world must have sucked.
>>7726070 With that master and PhD choices you are already a well rounded memeing memery memology limemericks meme man. Why ruin your meme career with a non-meme undergrad degree. Go all out with the memes and major in CS like a true respectable memeable memer.
Hey /sci/ I wanted to ask this question to either you or /k/ I figure this board makes more sense.
Hypothetically speaking if the U.S. government and all private military industrial corporations and the like tried to produce the maximum amount of tanks, planes, boats and guns just how many could they produce in a day? How about a week? A month? A year? Answering just a day will answer all of these but still.
I'm having a hard time trying to google just how fast the U.S. Government and private corporations can manufacture.
If the relationship is: govt pays while industry manufactures then it would depend on how much the govt is willing to pay. If govt pays enough, industry will respond by creating more manufacturing plants to meet the demand thereby increasing output capability.
