who the fuck even cares about clim8 change. climate changes all the time. yesterday it was raining, now its windy and clear. see ? no problem at all. climate changes, it's what it does. stop getting batshit scared of everything all the time cuckbird
Oh I love these threads. Lets give governments trillions of dollars in taxes which they aren't really accountable for. If you care about the environment support causes that actually produce results, I would throw money at an organization that was actively cleaning up things like the great pacific garbage patch. Carbon credits are a ponzi scheme and will never save this planet.
I have to integrate pic related and I got to the infinite series at the bottom. I already know that the limit is pi/2, but how do I prove it using this fucking Taylor series? I can't use double integrals, only this shit and Wolfram Alpha redirects me to Si(x) and I can't do anything with that. My calculus exam is at stake. Pls help /sci/
> What's the holdup with Quantum computing and Ai The AI program. Once you figure out how to create a program that can literally "learn" and spread it to scan the internet, you will have a sentient AI that can think, decide and worst of all knows pretty much everything about humanity.
If you could have any life what would it be? I want to know how my fellow /sci/entists would like to live and study. Personally I'd like to live on a large spacecraft with an AI companion, huge and well equipped labs and a library. I'd travel among space marveling at the universe and while traveling between locations, research build cool shit.

Lots of people here have learned a great deal by teaching themselves from books. I think that's interesting and am informally surveying anyone here who likes to learn from textbooks:
A. Textbooks are usually really long. How much time do you usually find you spend with a text before you feel comfortable with a topic, confident?
B. How do you process a textbook? Do you start at page 1 and work straight through, including exercises? Do you start with exercises and go back to the chapter? Do you read everything once then go back in depth with the exercises?
C. Any input you feel is helpful/important to digesting knowledge from a textbook
>>7807998 I have been studying Jech on and off for two years, working through it linearly. I take breaks from it sometimes to study other texts, but I study for hours a day. I always read textbooks linearly. I have taught myself exclusively through self-study; as an undergrad I almost never attended class, preferring to self-teach.
>>7807998 >A Depends on the size and content. Computer science/programming textbooks usually take me 1-2 weeks. Maths textbooks on a single topic (e.g. linear algebra or calculus) and less than 500 pages take me between 2 weeks and a month. A big and dense textbook (eg. microelectronics/sedra) can take me more than 2 months.
Generally the more broad the content the longer it takes for me.

I think i have found a link between a number of worldwide events and i'm trying to hypothesise my theory. Because I'm lacking in some of the relevant fields and i want to make sure it is what it is before releasing it to the masses.
I'm wondering if i post a number of questions and statements that some of you with a better brain than me will be able to rip it apart to see if it is correct and if not where i'm going wrong.
