A statistical analysis of footprint data has found that Foot Length, Foot Width and Heel Width follow a natural bell curve distribution. Which strongly suggest a real source and not fakery, unless you believe thousands of fakers all over the country have worked together. But that's not all. As feet get bigger they don't simply scale up but get a lot wider. It is highly unlikely that amateur fakers know this fact about hominid feet.
Thus the best explanation for the source of Sasquatch footprints is a real population of 2000-4000 nocturnal apes (maybe... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So I bought this saline solution that's used for cleaning your eyes from the pharmacy because they said the stuff that's used for injections are prescription only. Is it safe to use this for intra-muscular injections? Obviously it's sterile and it also doesn't contain preservatives, which is good and bad. They wouldn't tell me why, they just said you can't use this for injections because it's for your eyes. I only need 2ml. I guess worst case scenario it hurts more? Anything else that could happen? Interference with the medication? Serious... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Does anyone else find existence weird? The fact that we exist and interact with people who all have a different vision of reality scares the fuck out of me. There's so little that we know and life is uncertain. How does /Sci/ rationalize this?
>>7721489 Gain power and nihilistically undermine the very system that supports you for no reason. Do lots of drugs while doing this as well. Also tell everyone that you're trying to help and promote "progress".
I'm in grad school for math right now. I will be going for a ph.d after I get my m.s. here. it is awful, soul crushing work. you have to need a ph.d, like you cannot live knowing you aren't working towards one. because it DOES suck. the stress of keeping up with a class only to lose it all on a comprehensive final is REAL. if you arent willing to do whatever it takes, if you dont have the mindset of 'get a ph.d in math or die trying' then you should do something else.
>>7721296 >It's absurd to say either of these is completely false, it's just a matter of extent
The extent is so ludicrously small that it is irrelevant, especially for second/firsthand smoking. It has scientists who obviously hate it making he rules, but those who like smoking have actually proven that it isn't bad for you and is only bad for a very small number of genetically weak people.
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
>>7721275 These people get top grades in their finals though. Their marks are good enough for Medicine, Law, Acturial Science, etc. I am not talking about people who did poorly in their finals so they are stuck with picking Biology, Geography, European Studies, etc majors.
Suppose I receive a particularly devastating text from my ex, and in a fit of rage I desire to destroy my phone.
Would it be better to throw my phone straight at the ground, or to use the same amount of energy and throw my phone straight up into the air, hoping that it will break when it crashes. Which is more destructive?
Can we discuss Chemistry and Physics? I need to register for classes for next semester and either need to take Chemistry 107 (Gen Chem for Engineers) or Physics 218 (Mechanics)
So which is harder and which should I take first? A little background is I am taking MATH 151 next semester as well which is Calculus 1 and i've heard it is not wise to take Cal 1 with physics because you need to know Cal 1 prior not simultaneously. Can anyone shed some insight please.
You heard more or less correctly, IMO. A lot of physics does make more sense if you know basic calculus. For example, something as basic as the relationship between position, velocity, and acceleration is most easily expressed in terms of derivatives and integrals.
This is an issue that has been bothering me for some time. For those who are unfamiliar, an O'neill cylinder is a space habitat in the middle of space, with an atmosphere filled interior where people live, and is rotated so that the centrifugal force approximates gravity on the inner surface. Mirrors reflect sunlight through large windows into the habitat, and day and night are simulated by adjusting the mirror's angle.
My problem is that the mirrors are also rotated with the same rpm as the cylinder itself, so it will experience a much higher G-force at the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>7720943 Why the need for the mirror anyway? If we are advanced enough to build massive structures in space I would hope that our led technology has reached a point where we can accurately simulate sunlight. Also material science is booming right now so I'd imagine the material for said mirror isn't too far off.
>>7720943 >how are you going to adjust the mirrors without the hinges holding the mirror (and presumed by everyone to be the mechanism doing the adjusting) from breaking apart due to the massive force on it?
....I think the best way to design such a mirror is to construct said mirror from an ultrastrong and ultralightweight alloy. And it would be concentric (and probably slightly concaved, albeit shallow).
>>7720985 >I would hope that our led technology has reached a point where we can accurately simulate sunlight. Because we want to use a nuclear reactor expending rare and costly fuel replicating a task that could be accomplished by a shiny piece of metal or mylar, amirite?
