ok since we have cloning for animals, why don't scientists clone the food we eat, for an example, a box of mini wheats before it hits shelves, in the factory we clone the entire factory full of mini wheats then give it too the stores, we keep giving the stores cloned food so we can keep a endless supply.
>>8098345 we sort of do this already. Ever notice how bananas don't have any seeds? Well how do bananas without seeds reproduce if they don't have seeds? The answer is we clone em'. We cut off a little bit of a banana tree, and like plant it in some stuff to like make it grow into a new tree man. Every banana tree is like practically identical.
So, I've a question about astronomy, or quantum mechanics, I guess. Given the incredible size of our own universe, would it even be plausible for there to be theoretical billions of them, with some being exact replicas of our very own?
>>8098234 There is a probability that you are as you are. It's small but it exists. Call this P(you). The expected amount of you's to exist is the amount of events multiplied by the P(you).
In an infinite universe with an infinite amount of stuff which is clustered in a way that's similar to our local region and the stuff obeys the same rules of physics as our own. Let each cluster of stuff be an event with the possibility of you existing then doing crude math you can see that: P(you) * #(events) =... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So I was exploring a superfund site today with some friends. I won't specify which specifically but I'll say that it's one of hundreds in Western NY, (USA). We came across this pit full of an almost glowing blue liquid. The white powdery looking buildup along the bottom makes me conclude that perhaps it's acidic? I was t going to touch and find out. Can anyone here shed light on what I'm looking at? Nothing came up when I tried to research it. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
>>8098182 It's a hypothesis more than a conclusion which is why I also threw the word "perhaps" in there. Salicylic acid reacts with organic material that way that's how I came up with it. Then again sulfuric acid turns sugar black so I suppose I can see why it's not a great hypothesis. I'm not a chemist and didn't claim to be. I simply asked if anyone qualified coils identify this liquid/occurrence.
>>8098056 Drawing 3-d structures might be a worthy challenge to help you get better at drawing. Functions such as u(x,t)=g(x)f(t) may be a good place to start but also accurately drawing relatively simple chemical structures if you're into that sort of thing.
Technically, and this is from an ultra realistic scientific perspective mind you, cows have the equivalent of 100 tons of TNT or 1/2 the yield of an early atomic bomb packed to an area of about 6 square feet. This is why farmers never combined traditional plowing with gas plows, due to the fact a simple malfunction could level a Country.
How come we see some people as ugly as fuck, like, why dont we see everyone as beautiful? it would make it much easier to get a mate and reproduce if everyone was sexy or if we didnt see ugliness (does tht make sense), and thats what humans are supposed to do. i guess beauty can be subjective but i dont think anyone will think a really ugly person is good looking, maybe if they can look past the face and into the personality... but r humans supposed to see personality? isn't it ideal to have the most beautiful kids, as arent they the ones who are always naturally athletic and shit?
back in ye olde days before the witchcraft of makeup and personalities and ye newfangled social constructs. beauty ~= correlates with health. which correlates with good living conditions and likelihood of successfully having/rasing kids
Dunno man we are some complex fuckers who breed interspecies. Just watched a documentary about ducks and they are identical and apparently the mating is not based in the physical appearance, this happens in all nature with some preferences for size but we are the only who dont fit in that because we mate in different size, colors and forms. Sorry if my engrish is shit
>>8097710 If there's only one channel for the air to flow, they would both accomplish the same thing. You're not creating a vacuum when you turn a fan outside; an equivalent amount of air is coming into the room.
>>8097375 yes and no. "matrices" are not a group. it's easier if you restrict yourself to a set of matrices that all obey the same rules. for example, you can solve many problems if you only consider the set of NxN invertible matrices. those obey a similar set of rules as the ones you described.
Do you really believe strength and intelligence are mutually exclusive? Is this just jealousy from weak nerds who want to feel superior? Or are physically smaller people really smarter than stronger people?
>>8097356 >Do you really believe strength and intelligence are mutually exclusive? Me, no, most of /sci/, likely. There are fit intelligent people. And I find no shame in boney intelligent people either, different personal values.
Yes. I don't know why it happens, but it's pretty clear to me if you just look at the types of people who tend to be strong, or rather, more masculine. Something about being very masculine precludes you from developing intellectually. I suspect it's because instinctual drives are stronger in more masculine men, and so they cannot override them as easily as some of us here can.
Anyways i was browsing /pol/ out of boredome and i saw a redpill page saiyng that evrything is not what it seems.Long story short i made up a little theory (BASED OFF WHAT THE REDPILL SAID).It explains why certain laws conflict with eachother and why we cant give logical explanations to them.
It goes like this. Evrithing is actualy simulated (we are just a computer simulation and evrything around us - might explain parrarel universes because there could be more simulations going at once). The entire time space continoum could be a computer simulation so thats why certain... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
for starters, I know that if the total area consists of A = n x m places, the number of patterns must be less than A^A / A!, based on the idea of there being up to A 'belongingship' categories, with each tile being one of those at random. this does not yet restrict a category to be constrained to including only cells next to each other, or to having certain shapes.
you could probably also make graphs that connect every configuration by operations that either: > connect two adjacent 1x1 squares into a 2x1 > split a 2x1 into two 1x1 squares > connect two long-edge adjacent 2x1 tiles into a 2x2 tile > split a 2x2 into two 2x1 tiles (two ways to do this)
then you maybe could analyze the topology of that graph - there would be a structure based on values that tell you a) the number of 2x1 tiles b) the number of 2x2 tiles
Hey, /sci/, I want to order a book off amazon that helps me understand concepts on astronomy and whatnot, but also keeps itself interesting. I don't want a huge text book just like a novel length of something. Any suggestions?

There have been but a major contributor to why they're less common is due to them not being granted access to resources in comparison to men up until a little more than a hundred years ago. They've always been expected to become housewives.
>> seismological experiments Can be done (better) by robots
They will mostly hunt for rocks, plant flags, look good on TV, and leave.
Rovers are getting better. We might even be able to do the same stuff humans could do sans photo-ops with telerobots. You put humans in orbit around Mars and have them control robots on the surface. It makes doing a Mars mission a lot cheaper
>>8096641 I agree, I think they'd be doing a lot of geology and chemistry, as well as set up some seismometers. I think something else they should experiment with is biology, like testing how microbes act in the low gravity and low pressure environment. I have a feeling that because the intensity of the sun is less, the photosynthetic process may be effected. Maybe since it's less energy, plants wont produce as much sugar as we expect and this could cause trouble for civilization there. They should also experiment... Comment too long.

Looking for fossils would be the best/coolest/optimal thing human would do on mars better than robots imo. A matter of rock manipulation and visual recognition in situ than no explorer would do on its own.
What benefit is there to consistently dousing your lawn with chemicals for the soul purpose of aesthetics?
related: two of my neighbors across the street just had their lawns sprayed for weeds. Guy in huge truck pulls up with a huge tank and just starts spraying the lawn. I could smell it all the way into my yard.
Is there any specific scientific research to show how harmful weed control is to both the environment and human health?
>>8096585 The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in a study of 9,282 people nationwide, found pesticides in 100% of the people who had both blood and urine tested. The average person carried 13 of 23 pesticides tested. - See more at: http://learn.eartheasy.com/2009/01/lawn-care-chemicals-how-toxic-are-they/#sthash.pWfDyNZu.dpuf
Why are they still allowing the use of these practices then?
