At the start of Winter (the first cold day in North Florida) I found a slug-like organism. It basically looked like pic related except it had absolutely no eyes. The back of the thing was very smooth and almost leathery. It was absolutely not a fungus because it moved across my windshield like a slug. It also responded to touch, it curled around my finger. While at work I did a quick little taxonomy check myself and could not find it under any North Florida Slug Identification Guides.

Let's say there is a 10 km tall giant and, despite what the square-cube law would say, he is able to withstand his own weight and move like a proportionate human would through unknown means. His density is also somehow similar to that of a normal human.
1 - How much would he weight, assuming he is of average build.
2 - How far would he sink into the earth due to his weigh?

Changing the star's temperature will make it look orange, or yellow, or red, or blue, but you just can't get green. Our eyes simply won't see it that way. That's why there are no green stars.
Stars give off a broad spectrum. If the peak of that spectrum is "green," then it will look white, because green is right on the middleof the visible spectrum, so it will be giving off a lot of red and blue also.

I once got the idea about making an app that would allow a nice interface for all of those devices inside your phone to turn it into a small lab but I decided against that because I'd have to read a fuck ton of documentation and then months and months of refining and design.
As a mathematician (well, student of maths) that is simply not what I am interested so I dropped the idea and kept making dumb phone games because at least that... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I can't help but notice that while we say the second law of thermodynamics in inviolable, most imagined violations of it are also violations of the law of conservation of energy; for example, if a system spontaneously reorganises itself, there's a gain in potential energy but no loss of energy, therefore allowing free energy, explaining why a system cannot spontaneously organise itself.
However, if an electron where to somehow build up energy from weak photons then release it all as a strong photon, no energy would be gained or lost, but entropy would decrease;... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>7835509 Entropy is not solid at all its just like quantum mechanics as its a great model as far as the math goes and accurately predicts the real world but it makes no sense from a cause and effect standpoint
>>7835518 But then if it's so vague, why don't we have a lot of technologies supposedly ruled out by entropy? For example, simultaneously lighting and cooling something by having electrons go up energy levels from infrared absorbtion then drop to their lowest energy level again emitting a visible photon in the process.

Anyways, the website from the people pushing these said that the goal was to make more jobs for liberal arts people inside of big tech and science companies.
Their excuse was that 'pure creativity' was needed to keep a business running but that is bullshit..That assumes that people that do engineering, or high level math, or whatever, cannot be creative and have ideas on their own and need a babysitter liberal arts major to help them out. That is not the case.
Most start ups are made by STEM graduates and most CEOs are STEM graduates. We don't need 'idea guys'.
And this leads to the main point. All that I have said is known. We know this. They know this. So then why use that as their main catching point? Obvious. Liberal arts degrees are becoming literally worthless, with people reporting not getting jobs for 2 years after graduation at all. They just want to push this agenda to trick companies into hiring their liberal arts graduates because if not, they will all be stuck making minimum wage at Mc Donalds.
And that is all there is no it. It will never catch up because it doesn't bring anything interesting to the table. It just wants liberal arts majors to feed off the prestige that 'STEM' has.
Of late a few of my close friends have fallen into the crowd that inhales n2o (nos). I have done a fair bit of reading up on this and I really can't get a conclusive answer as to whether its bad for you or not. I would love to try it if its not going to cause long term side effects. Can chem majors or chemists or doctors for that instance give me a decent answer?
From what I read, it doesn't seem to be bad for you, but I didn't go too deep.
I can tell you that that shits not worth it. I knew a guy who was doing it and I tried it one night. You get high for like 5 seconds off one and that's it. The high was kinda funny, but it's just stupid. Who the fuck wants to be high for 5 seconds and have to do another?
I have really shitty initial comprehension skills. As in i will need to have something explained multiple times or have to study something in proper context to understand it. However when i do understand it, i understand better than most other people. Not sure if this is a condition.
