hello /sci/ i realize i could post this on /adv/, but i feel like this board has a better chance of having actual input
so right now im a 2nd year computer science student and im slowly realizing that i absolutely hate it. im not struggling with the courses, but im also not miles ahead of anyone. since starting college ive been enjoying math more, but i dont think im very good at it. if it means anything, i got a 5 on the ap cs test and a 3 on the calc bc one.
im thinking about switching to a math major, since im already take plenty of classes for it, but i... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>7697610 i dont enjoy it at all and most of the time it feels like a chore unless im making dumb shit just for me. i understand what's going on (right now at least), but i dont naturally think in a computer science-y manner, so im scared that the farther we progress the more ill fall off.
>>7697574 It's nowhere near as profound as that poster implies. The grand meaning and absolute (very narrow) spectrum of outcomes is also largely incorrect.
Long term high stress levels do cause atrophy and volume loss in various regions, but the real issue lies in functional changes of those structures. Many of which are reversible to some extent. That which is seen cannot be unseen, and we remain capable of becoming any former version of ourselves. In many cases this causes psychological conflicts that must be... Comment too long.

(went to become a writer and film school - so far it's okay)
I matched on tinder with a cute and kinda awkward Italian mathematician, she works in noncommutative algebra and group theory. What the fuck is that, wiki is too confusing. Can someone explain like I'm a film school grad.
/agdg/ here. I'm developing a mech game and want to see what sort of technology would be somewhat realistic within the next 50-100 years. I have almost no experience with robotics, so maybe you all can lend a hand.
What sort of technology can I add in my game to add believability/plausability?
For example: Say we achieve a room-temperature superconductor. What impact would this have and can it be applied to a large mech?
Mechs will never be realistic because the concept is massively impractical. If you want a semi realistic 'what if we did just cause lol' you probably dont have to do much, just stay away from 'energy weapons', set some limits that allow you to still have the robots about how much metal the relevant robotic bits can move with how much ease in your world, and keep in mind weight and volume concerns for decently realistic weapons on top of a big humanoid robot.
written by an edgy spergmaster, but fundamentally has a point. It heavily relies on the definition of 'bullshit' from an outside source, yet the problem with a word such as that is that it's definition can change and has changed. it also tries to use common features in scientific articles, and use of 'big' words to masquerade as anything other than an opinionpiece.
What topics is /sci/ willing to debate about? Will /sci/ discuss philosophy of science and epistemology? What about ethical questions that largely involve epistemological and scientific considerations? Also, if I made a set of rules that only I would have to follow which I thought would accelerate the process of agreement (just impartial things like 'no parodying your interlocutor', and 'prioritize agreement with your interlocutor rather than entertainment of your audience'), would it be characteristic of /sci/ to appreciatively and/or respectfully reciprocate?...

>>7697053 >Will /sci/ discuss philosophy of science and epistemology? There is nothing to discuss. You can repeat your "u cannot know nuffin" mantra ad infinitum, but don't ever expect scientists to care. We just continue to use the scientific method because it works regardless of whether some autistic "philosopher" fails to understand it.
>>7697084 >There is nothing to discuss. I think there is a lot to discuss. What is scientific, and why should I trust scientific things? What about 'scientific authority'? What are the limits of peer review, and what should I do if we reach those limits?
>You can repeat your "u cannot know nuffin" mantra ad infinitum, but don't ever expect scientists to care. Breaking out the strawmen already?
