So guys, can atoms be divided in a naturally way?
If evolution is true, what will humans evolve into next? How long do you think this evolution will take place?
Using the image provided, find the distance of the road in feet. The closest answer gets a steam gift.
Don't worry about the white drawing it doesn't mean anything.

The one thing that's always baffled me about biology is how do Proteins know/perform the tasks their performed for? They're just chains of amino acids, how do they read and correct errors in DNA replication? How do they know where to transport things in a cell? How do they even move?
It's a machine. How do gears know how to transfer energy and capacity for work within a system? How does the train's wheels know how to stay on the tracks?
It just does. Compounds are complimentary, and the universe on our scale can be pretty completely described mechanically. It's just physics.
But those are simple mechanical mechanisms. A trains wheels don't know to stay on the tracks, the tracks just keep the wheels on them. How does the protein that reads and corrects DNA know what to do? How does it know what segments are wrong?
what the hell does this equal to?
0? infinity? undefined?
z is complex
doesn't a function have to meet certain criteria to be differentiable or have a limit? (continuity or something?) i don't remember
What is the cause of depression?
Can either be strictly psychological, strictly physiological, or both.
I'd wager it's usually a bit of both. Antidepressants should be an absolute last resort, but unfortunately GPs (and to a lesser extent, psychiatrists) give em out like candy. Further solidifying their place in our great "if X then Y" culture.
How does the domestication of a species happen?
Can learned instincts be genetically inherited to offspring and become second nature over the course of hundreds of years? Would that mean that the way your brain is wired is genetically inherited?
I was just hugging my dog and it seemed second nature to him.
Behaviour is primarily genetic. Humans just selected those animals that were receptive to human contact, company, and commands and over time the species changes. Artificial selection is actually pretty interesting. It's crazy how rapidly evolution can occur. Most dog races around these days around no more than 200 years old.
Okay so i saw this on /b/ earlier. And now i can't really stop thinking about it.
The question was: What speed would a bullet have to go to do massive damage to the earth, or even destroy it.
The reason i'm thinking is cause i know that they said the space ship thingy that went past Pluto that if it was hit by a small grain of dust it would have destroyed the entire thing. So if you could get a bullet to the level of speed would it destroy the Earth if you shot it at the core??
>sorry if this is retarded
You might as well ask "what speed would a single molecule of tungsten have to be travelling at in order to kill you?"
The earth is too big compared to a bullet. It wouldn't even be able to destroy a medium sized country even if the bullet was as close to c as you wanted
can science explain why cats are cute
big eyes, small mouth and nose, curious, playful nature
those are neotenous traits, our brains are programmed to find those cute because children have them and we are supposed to care for the children
there's a decent body of evidence that rather than being selectively bred by humans, some cats evolved neotenous features because it made them better-tolerated by humans and thus gave them the advantage of having access to human homes and granaries (basically mice R us, no large predators, knock yourself out).
So was thinking, what would happen if I drilled through the earth and jumped into it? Thank you!
What eight plants are impossible to explore? Is it possible to venture on Neptune's surface or atmosphere?
If we're talking about human exploration:
Mercury - Too hot
Venus - Could survive in upper atmosphere maybe (that whole blimp idea)
Earth - Duh
Mars - This could also work
Jupiter - Possible to survive in the same conditions as Venus, but much more difficult due to the extreme cold
Saturn - Again, floating on the surface of a gas giant is possible, but I don't know if it would be feasible anytime soon
Uranus - Probably too cold, we'd need some amazing life support
Neptune - Even...

What's the worst machine? Worst as in, the most inefficient, unreliable, or needs to be repaired the most often.
imagine if Einstein had helped cure cancer instead of helped build the atomic bomb?

In dis paper, we shall present tha Hamilton-Perelman theory of
Ricci flow. Based on it, we shall give tha straight-up original gangsta freestyled account of a cold-ass lil complete proof
of tha Poincar´e conjecture n' tha geometrization conjecture of Thurston. I aint talkin' bout chicken n' gravy biatch. While
the complete work be a accumulated effortz of nuff geometric analysts, tha major
contributors is unquestionably Hamilton n' Perelman.
An blingin problem up in differential geometry is ta find a cold-ass lil canonical metric on
a given manifold. Y'all KNOW dat shit, muthafucka! In turn, tha existence of a cold-ass lil canonical metric often has profound
topological implications fo' realz. A phat example is tha old-ass uniformization theorem in
two dimensions which, on one hand, serves up a cold-ass lil complete topological classification for
compact surfaces, n' on tha other hand shows dat every last muthafuckin compact surface has a
canonical geometric structure: a metric of constant curvature.
How tha fuck ta formulate n' generalize dis two-dimensionizzle result ta three n' higher
dimensionizzle manifoldz has been one of da most thugged-out blingin n' challengin topics in
modern mathematics. In 1977, W. Thurston , based on scams bout Riemann surfaces,
Haken’s work n' Mostow’s rigiditizzle theorem, etc, formulated a geometrization
conjecture fo' three-manifoldz which, roughly bustin lyrics, states dat every last muthafuckin compact orientable
three-manifold has a cold-ass lil canonical decomposizzle tha fuck into pieces, each of which admits
a canonical geometric structure. In particular, Thurston’s conjecture gotz nuff, as a
special case, tha Poincar´e conjecture: A closed three-manifold wit trivial fundamental
group is necessarily homeomorphic ta tha 3-sphere S.
