Genuine question - what's the point of Mensa? After attending events/talks and reading their material, the people there just seem to enjoy wasting time together, rather than doing any actual academic work. But growing up as a kid, people had always spoken so greatly of Mensa. What's happened? Was Mensa initially good?
What do you think the file size of the universe would be, assuming it's a simulation?
No Man's Sky is estimated to be 15gb-20gb, and it has 18 quintillion planets. But that doesn't include things like human memory, languages and the music of the world, or the incredibly realistic textures that make up our reality. There's the fps game .kkrieger, which is 96kb total. It is entirely procedurally generated, but still looks passable (see attached image)
I've looked at every test that mankind has done to determine if the universe is a simulation,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I have a theory that most people are bisexual, and while this is very likely a horny crackpot theory, I would like to posit it to /sci/ for condemnation or confirmation I think this because humans are very much social animals and sex is a good way a resolving conflicts between two competitors (like in bonobo society) so I think humans were born naturally able to do it with both sexes. The main reason is this: For most of human history and in some tribes, homosexuality has been matter of fact or even praised as a pure form of sex, but because we are social and develop culture, we are also adaptable to new cultures and able to "turn off" certain behaviors in order to follow the norm. so therefore, because of the rise of Levant culture and identification and condemnation of homosexuality, we "turned off" that part of ourselves in order to follow the norm.
Additional stupidity >the sensitivity of the anus and prostate implies anal sex was not only biologically allowed, but adapted to give us pleasure, although this could just be crossed wires. >In the studies that try to detect this, most participant get erect/aroused to same sex porn, even if they claim otherwise. This implies that, even if the party involved does not personally enjoy it, homosexuality can arouse the majority of people. >The lack of diversity in porn/people means that homosexual behavior can't be explored much out side of the norm at this time. Because of the internet, people are starting to explore more. >the Trap mentality: AKA the "i'm not gay, I just like sucking dick" phenomenon So what do you think /sci/?
I think every human has an innate ability/fetish/appreciation for genitalia male or female and everyone expresses this to different extents because of social conditioning, intelligence, whatever else lends to their various propensities.
>tldr everyone likes dicks and pussies
inb4 closeted denial fag, live with my bf and get my dick sukt everyday. I've fucked 11 girls and 3 guys.

>>8057738 money, you need to do something at the end of the day unless you win the lotto. if you like the kind of work why not? you still assist people with 130+ iq. and you never know you may figure something out, though you probably need more than 105 for that.
Dont worry about iq op just do something that u are good at/enjoy. Ive got a pretty high iq but i live rent free at home and make 20 an hr. Theres more to life than lamborghinis. Italians are fags anyway
>Phobos is an extremely, almost impossibly porous and light moon in a decaying orbit >new information on Martian atmospheric loss suggests it took billions of years confirming Mars as a viable terraformation target
There is literally no reason to not terraform Mars by nuking Phobos out of orbit. The amount of dust and debris a collision like that could kick up would be more than enough to start the terraforming process and we have the technology to do this today. Phobos is already going to collide with the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Woah woah woah now let's HOLD ON, here. This is an emotional moment for all of us, but this MOON has a substantial DOLLAR VALUE attached to it, okay? And if in fact any alien life forms do exist on Mars, there might be an important species we're dealing with, and I don't think you or I can make the decision to do something rash, that might arbitrarily exterminate them!
>just because I don't understand anything that I'm taught in school and refuse to teach myself doesn't mean I'm not SMART! I'm good at other stuff like listening to top 40 music and reading young adult fiction.
Remembering when /sci/ used to be populated with rational thinkers. What happened /sci/? It seems like when people jumped on the fake-nerd bang wagon, they also jumped on the science fanboy wagon without learning what the scientific method is.
And it's not just 4chan either. Even in academia social sciences are promoted as are theoretical bullshit beliefs.
When did proof go out the window? When did authoritarianism and false dilemmas become accepted? What happened?
Most people are prone to psychotic egotism. They lie all the time because they can't admit to being wrong. Even when there is proof, like 4chan, where everything is recorded and in front of everyone, straw man arguments and false quotes are used more than anything.
>>8058881 Not the guy, but how buttblasted do you have to be to defend /pol/ in every post you see that mentions it? You aren't making any difference here, you might as well go back there so you don't waste time being upset at other people's posts.
It's safe to assume that women are on their own mental category?
I don't want to mean they're mentally inferior, but we can see the paralel between women and male sports and how women world records are actually the same of a 13 year old male athlete and they lose to 14 year old males.
So, following that sense, can we assume that women are mentally inferior to what we consider male mathematicians and male scientists?
Has there been any case in history of science of a female that can be at the same level male geniuses had been?

Let's do the following fun experiment: Take any of the following categories: science, math, art, literature, philosophy, politics, sports. Make a list of the 10 greatest males in that field. Make a list of the 10 greatest females in that field. Now make a list of the 10 greatest _persons_ in that field. How many females are in that last list?
The problem is that women are by nature purely sexual beings and emotionally... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Why haven't we detected alien life yet? Imagije how the human society will look like in 3 BILLION years and tell me we wouldn't left detectable traces for any remotely intelligent life to detect in the entire galaxy or even control the growth and spread of all alien life. So why can't we find anything? And remember your explanations needs to satify not only one alien species but ALL alien species including future humans colonizing space.
>>8052424 Could it be that all life tries to kill itself before leaving for the stars? Could it be that we are some of the earliest 'Smart' life out there. Could it be that Aliens don't want others to find them because we are all doomed to killing each other off? Could it be one alien per Galaxy. Could X/ be right and there are aliens and our government is keeping it quite?
A new language is created that only uses the letters A, B, C, D, and E. A sequence of letters is called a word if it does not include the same letter twice in a row, and it does not include two vowels in a row. How many words are there in this language that are 10 letters long and that begin with a vowel?
>>8057367 The whole thing was a hoax, the towers are still standing. If you don't think it's possible then here's your reminder that David Copperfield made the statue of liberty disappear, the USG obviously has better resources and better tricks than David Copperfield.
I don't believe half of what theoretical physics says, I think it's mostly nonsense, especially things like "time dilation" - if anything happens the molecules slow down, in my opinion you are changing the normal definition of time otherwise in a senseless way. There are signs of this sort of "heresy" starting to trickle into the highest authorities of the science, which is never a good sign for it being right. I just wish they would stop experimenting with things like the LHC because sooner or later a mistake or oversight will be made and it'll... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
You have 5 seconds to prove to me why anyone should ever bother learning, understanding and memorizing all the complex functions, rules and ideas behind this decrepit, inane, obsolete study of chemistry
>>8052494 because mathematicians don't have sweet labs and some people think physicists messing with lasers is outright boring.
My senior research was on organic chemistry; think about how frustrating it is to try to create something from a simpler chemical, then walking down to the NMR downstairs and BOOM you find out (by literally solving a puzzle of data) that you've successfully synthesized your product. As hard as it was, it was the most challenging and rewarding experience of my life.
>>8048527 He was successful because he was born rich in an influential family, people have used religion and all manner of other bullshit for the same means, but the rules of propaganda have changed dramatically since Bernays.
Its beginning to look like i am an Elon Musk fanboy but it’s not quite that. The truth is that he and his team keep trying to push their limits on what their next mission should be. And this time is no different. http://plugnstay.com/mars2018-spacex-challenges-again-with-the-red-dragon/
what evolutionary consequences would result from women experiencing direct pleasure from a male eyaculating straight into their unprotected vagina. Like, something like a semen receptor in the uterus that causes a huge orgasm like response when it comes into contact with the male semen.
would it be an evolutionary advantage? what consequences would it bring? i think it would certainly make the rate of pregnancies higher.
Are there any current evidences of people evolving to avoid birth control.
