what are you're chances to get it right?
the actual chance of getting the question right is 25%, however 25% appears as an answer twice. therefore if i pick a choice at random, there is a 50% chance i will make the correct choice
I used to get mad at myself and hit myself in the head. I started getting headaches and now I wobble a bit when I walk after about a year I got over it, but now a year later, I'm mad at myself again, only now I hit myself in the chest. What kind of health problems can I expect? I've been working out lately, should I stop working out my arms before I become strong enough to hurt myself beyond repair?
I'm a poor Amerifag so I can't afford a fancy doctor or shrink.
Prove that it exists and that it is largely caused by human activity.
How viable is a lunar colony?
If by "viable" you mean "pays for itself" then not very. The moon has no resources nor strategic significance in the near future. Even scientific goals can be mostly accomplished by much cheaper rovers.
I recently got into a debate with an idiot about what makes airplanes fly. He expounded his belief in the correct answer which was completely wrong and despite my constant attempts to disprove his idea and indicate the correct one, he would not believe me. It seems that there is a strongly believed and widespread misconception about what makes airplanes fly. So, without giving away the real answer, I come to /sci/ to ask the general populous here what they think causes airplanes to stay aloft. Who thinks what and why?
We know that hypoglycemia is less 70 mg/dl and hyperglycemia is greater than 200mg/dl. But from what method exactly are we measuring these values because there are several different methods. Capillary blood, glucose fasting, glucose tolerance and glucose 2 hour postprandial. I'm assuming it's the capillary test.
The best diagnostic test currently recommended by the ADA is actually an HbA1c.
Other diagnostic tests are an 75g OGTT, an 8hr fasting glucose, or a random glucose >200 in a classically symptomatic pt.
Your welcome for doing your homework faggot
Chemists are what happens when physicists smoke weed.
Chemists, we change the way you live and die
Is this guy a meme?
He does some popularization, but he seems to pride himself on not explaining mathematical concepts in simple language--like an anti-pop sci.
For example, his book , Birth of a Theorem, has pages of raw manuscript with no explanation of what the equations mean.
But then again he dresses like that.
So some dinos evolved into birds...
Assuming humanity survives long enough, what might the humans of 100,000,000 years from now look like?
I'm aware we don't know what conditions they might encounter but, let's make some educated guesses.
This is what humans will look like in 500 years
If Human Beings are supposed to be evolutionary superior to any species on Earth, the ultimate predator, how come we cannot see in complete darkness? How come evolution did not supply human beings with some sort of thermal or night vision? Yes, man invented fire, but before that, we were completely blind at night against other predators. Why do we not have enough Rods in our Retina? This is not a Evolution vs. Creation debate. Just a curious question about Human blindness without a light source.
At what age should one stop smoking in order to avoid serious health problems? I was thinking maybe late 50's/early 60's at the very least.
Does anyone get annoyed when they see people getting euphoric about things like pic related?
Like they'll post threads with false color images like pic related (which are basically just CGI art by this point) and then have a hippie circle about the "beauty of the universe" for an hour.
I dunno why but this always irritates me.
Like I feel like they might as well be posting only the false color image on the right and then be having a circlejerk about the beauty of Mars
Yeah sure, but on the other hand we used to have those threads on /sci/.
We also used to Celestria/Universe sandbox jerk threads.
Let youngfags be young. At least they aren't doing drugs or worse; listening to rap.
Like http://www.universetoday.com/11863/true-or-false-color-the-art-of-extraterrestrial-photography/ even says from one of the people involved in this that "images are further adjusted to...make a more pleasing picture".
Is he the Newton of our time?
Since he died in 1727, I guess we should call him Oldton now!
Does anyone on /sci use Ocaml? what's your thoughts about it?
I do. I like it a lot when I'm doing anything heavily algorithmic, or discrete math (I do most of my ProjectEuler problems in OCaml for instance, as well as a big part of the simulations I run for my research).
I don't really use it for anything script-like, or for things with a lot of UI work or IOs. It's not that it can't be done, but in my experience, the benefits it brings are not worth the annoyance.
I don't think it's a language everyone needs to know. I do think however that everyone that codes a lot should learn at least one...
