Can anyone provide any info on the suicide by cherry method? Apparently if you grind 200 cherry pits and drink it the cyanide in them will kill you. Is there any truth in this? Common sense tells me that if it really was that simple, a lot more people would be doing it, yet I've never heard of anyone killing themselves like this.
Just got a job offer as a quant/strat at Goldman Sachs. I'm leaving academia. Am I a bad person if I take it?
If it's all just...space, then could I theoretically flip myself in any direction and still be in the natural accordance of things?
If nothing can go faster than light, shouldn't we be able to see the entire universe? But we can't, we only see the observable universe, from where light has had time to reach us. But if big bang is correct, everything was "in one place" once, so, that can only mean that the universe has expanded faster than the speed of light.
Is this right?
You can't accelerate beyond the speed of light from any given reference. However the universe's expansion is different, it's expanding everywhere at once. Space itself is expanding, which is different from objects moving through space.
How do I get better at math? I'm trying to make high marks on my ACT in order to transfer from my community college, but I keep getting questions incorrect on the practice tests. I barely listened in high school and didn't give a single shit about math. What do I do?? I've been studying for the past month so I have a pretty good basis... I have most problems with trig since I was never even introduced to that in hs.
why do you need to do the ACT if you're transferring? That shit isn't required if you've done a certain amount (iirc about 1 and a half year's worth) of credits, what's your GPA anon?
Post infinite energy.
Fucking hell, why didn't I ever think of this.
That's it. I'm going to go look at all common objects, identify attributes I believe to be inherent, and attempt to fix them. It begins. You did this.
So what do you guys feel about the JWST?
I think it's pretty cool how it could possibly tell us what exoplanets atmospheres are like (which could possibly show us a truly earth like planet)
It's basically hubble, but better.
honestly i love hexagons (my favorite shape) and i love that the JWST's mirror is going to be made of hexagons
obviously the science it will do is important, but i'm more distracted by how neat it looks
Why is science and mathematics considered "hard"? What makes it so challenging? Why do people need motivation just to try it? Why do people feel that it is physically and mentally draining to solve a maths problem or do a small project in physics class?
> Why is science and mathematics considered "hard"
Because they actually are "hard".
Most of what you learn in any STEM degree was, at some point in time, considered to be cutting edge research. The closer you get to present day knowledge, the more and more complex the topics tend to become. Once you get within the 50 year mark, shit starts to get pretty wild.
What is the Master Plan of science?
Is there a point in scientific discovery where the subject matter ceases to be purely empirical?
Is it possible to get to metaphysics through natural physics?
If the big bang truly was the beginning of contingent reality and not some other strange phenomenon governed by physical laws, then wouldn't we have already reached that point?
There are of course unstable quantum vacuum states but they are still physical and thus contingent, and no, they are not a case of "something from nothing."
>Is it possible to get to metaphysics through natural physics?
At that point it'd prolly just amount to the specific metaphors you used to describe natural physics. It'd be valid as long as there was an isomorphism between your metaphors and the natural physics.
Language games and all that... good old wittgenstein
>are still physical
next, you will tell me that the number 3 is physical.
If you could, what would you change about the Golden Record in modern times, and would you even send it off?
From a perspective of people in the 1970’s when the voyager was launched with the golden record, people were very excited about space and the possibility of extraterrestrial life, so NASA did it as more of a publicity stunt to fuel interest of space and aliens into the eyes of Americans. It was very necessary to launch it back then because it generated a lot of revenue for NASA, but in Today’s times, it would be very unnecessary knowing that even if aliens receive it 500 light years away(low) it would take over a thousand years to get the message.
Draw a dick
Also, I bet aliens sould give a fuck about us since we are stupid and they belong in a larger spacs civilisation with over 10000 races. Pic related is alien face when
is this the right logic expression for the diagram:
((~A ∧ ~C ∧ B) v (B ∧ A ∧ C)
I know this board isn't for homework but i'll remove the post after someone checks my answer
thanks. truth table is good too? just the setup of the columns.
>tfw too stupid for math but too smart for anything else
What age did girls in caveman times probably start their periods?
