Why haven't we ever drilled down to the earth's core?
a lot of /mu/tants are retards, apparently
Shitty lab partner stories? I've been really lucky to have cooperative and good-humored lab partners up until this point, but now I'm having problems in chem.
>Have three partners (more than needed for the lab experiment)
>Lab tables are designed to split us up, but we have to work together anyway
>Personally very attentive to detail, cautious about gathering data
>People on the other side of the table just want to barrel ahead in the assignment and get out early
>They end up doing most of the work, and doing it wrong
>I'm only able to get reliable measurements on half the trials
>When I point out that they don't have any methodology, they bitch at me for "not paying attention"
>Being attentive to the variables and measurement techniques is "not paying attention"
>I get fed up and decide that I'll do the whole thing next time, and they can just deal with me being slower
Utterly bizarre, I've never had lab partners before who wanted to rush through everything. It is Gen Chem 1 though. Physics >>> shit >>> Gen chem
That's a lot of people in early chem. There's a lot of people there just taking the class because they need it and have no interest in chemistry whatsoever. Once you get to O Chem though I'm sure you'll have mostly serious people.
>There's a lot of people there just taking the class because they need it and have no interest in chemistry whatsoever
I'm one of those. I guess I'm just surprised because I've gotten used to taking courses that are past the pleb filter.
Are there any good educational YouTube channels?
>pic possibly related
I think Numberphile can get pretty good but it's more informative than educational.
I don't know if that make sense, but what I'm trying to say is that you could watch a certain video and learn 'about', say, graph theory. But you aren't really going to 'learn' graph theory.
Vsauce is garbage.
Is it true that grains, even whole, are bad for you?
People will look back on this in 100 years and laugh.
Why so many smart people dismiss philosophy?
Dr. Negro really startin' to get on my nerves, yo.
Yeah, the deep misunderstanding of science and what it's capable of is getting old.
You should probably be cutting out a lot of microscopic holes for all of the bacteria if you're that stupid. See also chimerism and a bunch of other shit you're probably too dumb to know about.
sorry for a meme math thread but the one on /r9k/ is getting out of hand
i'm am not smart
four possible outcomes at first
one has to be a crit so it goes to
so, with all the information the question provided, it's 1/3, r-right?
also does this problem have a name?
That is correct, if the problem said that the first one is a crit then it would have been 50/50. The point is that you are not forcing an attack to be a crit, you are eliminating all the cases where there are no crits
What branch of physics,math or science in general is the closest to philosophy in the sense that both of them are trying to find the meaning of life?
Only allowed to post one guys
What do you think, is the fabric of the Universe continuous or discrete?
Could science solve our gun violence problems?
For example could we install high very high powered magnets in buildings that are activated only at the exact vibrational pulse of a gunshot, and thus the bullets and the guns themselves are stopped and pulled to the wall stopping the gun.
>For example could we install high very high powered magnets in buildings that are activated only at the exact vibrational pulse of a gunshot, and thus the bullets and the guns themselves are stopped and pulled to the wall stopping the gun.
No, that's retarded. Thread over.
America has a culture problem, not a gun one.
With magnets strong enough to stop bullets: hope you enjoy ripping everyone in half who's wearing a belt or watch. Or sitting on a steel chair. etc.

Launch webcast begins at 9:45 Eastern, with launch at 10:15
so, i have been blazing a lot and thinking even more.
now i summon all the actual educated people on here, to clarify this for me once and for all.
Imagine a huge solid metal cube, wich would have enough space in itself to hold a nuclear bomb charge. it would also be thick enough, and strong enough to keep the blast of the said charge contained in itself when it goes off. if you but a cube of sugar, or something small/irrelevant in there, would it create a black hole?
Is this book considered pop-sci?
what really is pop sci
The actual meaning is popular science, which means it's science that is dumbed down to a level that everyone can understand and relate to. Which means it dumbs down or simply ignores the really brainy stuff that requires one to understand the details, numbers, formulas, hypothesis and so on..
I wouldn't call that pop-sci since I doubt majority of pop-sci fags would dare to hold that book.
Will we ever cure cancer?
Why does decreased temperature increase atomic synchronization in an object?
I now absolutely nothing about physics but I'll give it a shot. Please tell me how stupid and wrong I am.
Stored energy is an measurement of potential, as in how many different things it can randomly do in the next second. As you take energy away from an atom it has less potential or less "things it can do." Eventually if you remove enough energy from an object the atoms are so limited in what options can perform that some of them start randomly doing the same thing and sync up.
Does anyone know a nice space that this is homeomorphic to? Its just R^2 take away the lines x=0,y=0 and x=y, with the subspace topology of the standard topology.
So if the most likely reason that black people have dark skin, less sensitive eyes( dark brown) and often wider nostrils is because of adaptation the heat in the areas they lived( wider nostrils means more air can enter) and people with white skin son't for the opposite reason. Why is it East and south east Asians who live in their respective climates and geographic areas have evolved, on top of different skin pigmentation, slanted/almond eyes? What purposes could that feature serve to adaption. I always wondered this.
Literally not trying to create a race war or /pol/...

Well yes so, there is no advantage to having such eyes in any environment then? Their common ancestors just happened to mate with other primates that looked like that(for some reason)? Also, why do most East Asian have dark eyes when they're ancestors lived in cold climates mostly(reflecting their lighter pigmentation). Could this be the fact they they share common ancestors with Persians and other Middle Eastern peoples?
Smaller "slanted" eyes mean you are less sensitive to sunlight glaring off fresh snow. Look at inuits, they have extremely small eyes reflecting this type of environmental adaptation.
The east Asian race as we know it would be descended from peoples who lived further north near Siberia before migrating southward.
I have really hard time now having the will to do absolutely anything but dont want to be like that and also is there a way to make yourself love what you do even if you dont ?I'm sure I can condition myself but have no idea how.
The age of customized synthetic porn is upon us
Might want to take a look at this. I'm not telling you how to live your life, but be aware of the consequences my friend.
Stuff like this and the bedroom thing strike me as just being heavily overfitted. Have they really gone through every image the system was trained on to make sure it's not just spewing out things it has seen?
I'm not convinced.
How do you revise all math quickly?
Khan has a million videos and even played at 2x speed, it still takes weeks of continual effort.
What other resources do people use? Something that covers everything up to calculus/linear algebra/probability
khan academy is the golden standard, bro.
PatrickJMT is another option but he is 100x more unorganized than Khan and his videos are oftentimes just as long or longer.
Don't get fuckarounditis looking for an alternative to Khan Academy, I did that a few years ago. Just sit down and start working with 2x speed on.
Why everyone on this board get so mad when he hear about evolutionary psychology? Humans evolved, body and mind, from earlier primates. The ways in which humans think reflect this heritage as surely as the ways in which their limbs are articulated, their immune systems attack viruses and the cones in their eyes process coloured light.
It makes traditional psychologists angry that biology is "invading their field", and they fear that biology, chemistry and physics is reducing their precious theories into cinders.
In my country the research group that studies evolutionary psychology has been terrorized by extreme leftists and creationists. They wreck the researchers' cars, threaten their families with violence, leave "warnings" etc. It doesn't fit their world view that our behavior is partly determined by our past, and that we are greedy, selfish and manipulative by our nature.
People fall into the trap of making up Just-so stories to explain any psychological phenomenon they want. Its not something that people who haven't rigorously studied evo. pysch. should try.
What if we define 1 to be 0?
ask someone who just did an internship in the ESA + various space manufacturing companies anything
I did an internship with NASA, this is not a particularly major thing as positions are typically open to anyone who lives nearby one of their offices. I've also done interships for the Dept of Energy as well.
I'm a biologist and I think that Astronomy and physics takes just
too much space in the pop culture.
Space travels and black holes are fascinating without doubts.
However biology has also his wonders to share.
I want to become famous as a biology popularizer.
Since I love 4chan and I started using it in the year anno domini
of the Lord 2007/2008
I want to spread my word also here.
I have a telegram channel

The process of mitosis. The fundamental process of asexual reproduction.
The scope of mitosis is to segregate the genomic information in two cells.
Here we see the chromosomes in red and the microtubules in green. After
the chromosome condensation the microtubules organize in a spider like
structure. They are ready to pull the DNA at the opposite poles of the cell.
Once the chromosomes are separated the cell goes into anaphase then
telophase and divides.
They say that diseases introduced by the European conquistadors killed off as much as 95% of the indigenous American population. How come that the Europeans didn't suffer such casualties from the Americans' diseases? Didn't they have their own germs which the conquistadors were not immunized against?
Can one learn 450 pages of biology in 1 month ?
What is the purpose of hatred?
All I do all day is stalk my enemies learning everything about them and dream about violence.
Why do live in hatred?
Can hatred be changed?
Hatred is just the inverse of love.
Humans have an innate need to feel the love of others, and you probably feel this need more strongly than most. However, in reality, you feel almost no love on a daily basis, not really as anyone's fault just as a consequence of the nature of our industrial capitalist society. Your attempts to gain the love of others through spreading your own love haven't been successful, and as a result you are frustrated and angry, and feel as though you have been wronged. So, lacking any outlet for the love that you feel that will produce...
