>>8103333 Yes and no, depends on the person. I know a few bio majors who are like what you described. However a friend of mine has been top of the class and he studies like a champ. 5-7 hour sessions of reviewing notes, re-watching lectures, and re-reading textbook chapters over and over.
If you aren't naturally gifted then you get out what you put in. If you do shit all study expect shit grades.
Go to any local doctors office or hospital. There will be at least one infographic directed at patients or doctors urging the sparing use of broad-spectrum antibiotics. The Healthcare community recognizes the risk and is working to slow it with targeted antibiotics, for instance.
>Mix multiple antibiotics together so that bacteria can't simultaneously evolve resistance to all of them. Crisis averted.
Hahaha, no. That's exactly what they do. That's exactly why the crisis is coming.
Also nobody said we shouldn't use antibiotics at all. It's about the many places where antibiotics could easily be avoided. Multiresistant bacteria are not caused by antibiotics, but by the excessive use of them.

Do you think that psychopathy is linked with nature or nurture?
I do not believe that something so prevalent and well documented over hundreds of years could result from a (nearly even) combination of the two since differences between cultures, standards within individual cultures, quality of life, and parenting styles are always different and constantly changing.
>>8103078 You can have a genetic predisposition to psychopathy, but experiences during development can trigger a break with reality. There are cultural differences, of course. Look up rates of schizophrenia in first and third world countries. Yes its both.
I think it's definitely a combination of things, but nature is definitely a factor. I think our greater capacity for imagination and knowledge over the other animals which is also our curse. The more connections and complex a brain, the more ways it can go wrong. Just the slightest misalignment can lead to all kinds changes.
I'm trying to calculate something but I don't know exactly how to set up the equation because I don't normally work in this field and I'm pretty new to STEM in general, only just half way through with my BA in chem.
Anyways, I'm trying to figure out what the effect of trump's wall getting too tall would be on the center of gravity of planet earth.
Let's take F to be the approximate height of the wall as originally intended. However, the real height of the wall will not be expressed simply as a function of F because every... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
To all the dumb physicists in here trying to give ontological character to their mathematical discourse (which is only descriptive of relational properties):
"But hitherto I have not been able to discover the cause of those properties of gravity from phænomena, and I frame no hypotheses. For whatever is not deduc’d from the phænomena, is to be called an hypothesis; and hypotheses, whether metaphysical or physical, whether of occult qualities or mechanical, have no place in experimental philosophy." -Isaac Newton
So I made a hypothetical planet called "Cerza" which I think would be just great for life, try and find any flaws in it.
Cerza is a water planet with an average global temperature of 500 degrees Celsius, so I guess steam planet is better. It's 2 times larger than Earth and its atmosphere of water vapor is 10 time denser. Its home star is the same size as ours so to achieve its heat it would be about 3 times closer to its star than ours. The dense atmosphere would act as a sort of buffed up ozone layer for the planet, defending it from harmful radiation... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

If you read carefully both examples in your pic, you realize the left guy is talking about science and referring it, but the right guy isn't actually talking about science itself, he's actually referring to "scientific knowledge"? maybe? i don't know how to call it but, you can tell that the dude on the right isn't actually referring to any scientific principal or idea, only vague pop science stuff and knowledge... so logically, there isn't any real...

When it comes to pure math, france/Germany toss up (ancient Greeks if you want to judge it a certain way). Including applied math, physics, and other similar contributions to civilisation, probably England and Germany. In the 20th century russia and the USA get on Frances level, and Germany falls a bit, due to the wars + tons of scientific funding for user and USA during the cold war.
What would be some modern theoretical applications of a gravitational canceler, being reproduced like Ed Leedskalnin created? He used it to move giant stones and balance them on their center of gravity, such as a four-ton door that was destroyed in the 80's when scientists tried to study it.
In one of his Readings, Edgar Cayce, when asked how the broken axehead floated in the story of Elijah, said that the building blocks for the Pyramid of Giza, were lifted up by the same power. He said that we would discover the secret in the year '68, but since Leedskalnin... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

That seems like the most astonishingly pointless way to use such a device conceivable. I conclude that he must be a fraud on the basis of that alone, because nobody so spectacularly unimaginative could possibly have invented such a device.
Possible uses for canceling gravity include fundamentally revolutionizing... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

Even though no one on 4chan will believe me, I'd say likely astrophysics or some similar theoretical-driven field. Obtaining my doctorates was so satisfying, but god did I feel stressed. In my class, I saw people that were so smart that I couldn't believe it.
>>8101743 okay. Say Im standing still and listening to some AM signal of hannah montana's hoedown throwdown (broadcasted from some fixed radio station at infinity) and during the first refrain start to accelerate such that by the third refrain I am close to lightspeed.
ITT: fields or subjects that interest you, but every time you attempt to study it you remember how boring it is, or are reminded why you didn't go into that field.
For me it's physics. I Used to be a Physics major. I'm a math major now, but I still have interest in GR. I got through Differential Geometry, but every time I try to study even the most basic GR, I get so bored and I am reminded how uninteresting Physics is to me. Same with QT/QM.

Artists don't reproduce. Only Chad and Tyrone do. Welcome to dysgenics. If von Neumann was born in China today he would have been cloned many times over. But the west believes in cucked equality so our civilization will basically become Brazil.
I've wondered about if you took people with Down Syndrome and kept having them reproduce with one another, if it would eventually come to a stable and relatively healthy population. What sort of time scale and probabilities would be involved for a reasonable outcome, or do the means exist at all.
>>8101399 That's also my assessment, right down to the Brazil comparison.
But do autists really believe in anything outside their personal space? Communal living is complete hell for them. They tend to agree with leftism because they know it hurts Chad, but in practice they are aloof. Aloofness plus money equals Brazilian style elitism, even if the autists aren''t snotty about it.
>>8101282 I'm not having the same issues with maths or physics though. Everything there is explained, every formula. Instead chemistry just tells you to do this then do that then do that without really explaining what the hell is going on
Obviously I don't have any mathematical or scientific training or whatever so this could very well belong to a sqt, but isn't basic algebra (probably not a proper math object) supposed to be transitive? Like if a=b and a=c then b=c? Then why is (-b+(b^2-4ac)^(1/2))/2a) ≠ (-b-(b^2-4ac)^(1/2))/2a) even though they both are equal to ax^2+bx+c=0)? Also there's the if a=b then a+-*/c=b+-*/c property. It doesn't hold for "x=7 then x/(x-7)=7(x-7)" Does this mean math is broken? Do we just patch it up because it's useful irl? Doesn't the fact... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>8101179 If we take b=0, a = -1, and c = some positive number, then your question translates to "if (-1)*x^2 + (0)*x + c = 0, and if x = ((-(0)+((0)^2-4(-1)c)^(1/2))/2(-1)) or ((-(0) - ((0)^2-4(-1)c)^(1/2))/2(-1)) , then shouldn't ((-(0)+((0)^2-4(-1)c)^(1/2))/2(-1)) = ((-(0) - ((0)^2-4(-1)c)^(1/2))/2(-1)) be true? No, if x is this number, OR that number, it does not mean it is this number AND that number.
What exactly happens in your body when you reach your breaking point?
How does mental and physical exhaustion differ?
And how can you know what your true and imagined breaking point is?
Examples: when I am running and feel the urge to stop but keep going on until I feel like I just have to stop. Was this my phyiscal or psychological breaking point or was it neither? Could I still have went on for longer? What prevented me from it?
Similarly when studying and I just feel too tired to focus. What exactly is it that prevents me to study for another... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>8101085 pratice helps build endurance in almost all things. To answer your question it's a bit of both it's a safety guard/device in your mind and body to not over exhaust anything. Just listen to it and don't push yourself to hard you will probably won't amount to anything anyway.
I'm not at all sure if this question is too asinine or not, but I wanted to ask /sci/ about the relative pro's or cons of transport by pipeline as opposed to transport by rail or road or other vehicle.
Whenever a resource is available as a fluid, it's generally transported through pipes. We rarely see companies extract oil from the ground and then truck it from place to place. Similarly with water, it's delivered via pipe, as it's cheaper.
So I'm wondering, say we fluidised the worlds largest traded solid resources, i.e., convert... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>8101083 The biggest (of many) problems with this approach is that melting say, iron takes a fuckton of energy. And you have to heat the entire length of the pipe enough to _keep_ the iron liquid, or else it's just going to solidify a mile down the pipeline.
>>8101087 The post mentioned that resources like iron would be fluidised by conversion to an aqueous salt like a sulfate or nitrate, and then transported by being dissolved in water. No molten metal needed; I'm thinking more of an add on to existing water distribution networks with a system of refining out the bulk goods before the waters use for drinking or agricultural purposes. Perhaps I should have been clearer on this point.
>>8101083 >how would a theoretical, untested and unproven method of transportation for goods, which doesn't even yield results in google, fare against the established methods of transportation of goods, for which actual data exists if you want a clear answer: how the hell are we supposed to know
