>>8497482 If someone makes a thread about hot scientists and instead of posting cute bois you start posting women (even if you are hetero) you are a confirmed 12 year old.
These threads are meant to be ironic fun with people saying how'd they would destroy Galois' boipussi but here you go admitting you are a disgusting cuckbastard sexist who actually rates scientists for their hotness.
Go kill yourself please and please go back to your containment board. I do not know if you belong in reddit/cuck or in... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>8497040 >the science behind snarky comments is that you can talk shit without consequences on the internet, so they do Why do people sound snarky then? Why can't they openly show their resentment and hatred? Instead, we get word play to hide it all.
>also /sci/ is rampant with people trying to prove to themselves that they are intelligent
Perhaps this answers my question, word play is a means to show intelligence.
Today the results of the GRE subject in mathematics have been revealed. I scored lower than expected, namely, 800 (80 percentile). Are here any grad students in pure math that can tell me if I will be filtered out with such a score? I wanted to apply for pure math PhD (algebraic topology) to MIT, UCLA, Berkeley (and some other schools, but I'm mostly concerned with these three). Besides that score I have a rather solid application: 2 strong LORs with professors I did research with, and 1 good I guess (I did only 2 classes and a seminar with that professor, got nice grades,...

>>8496633 I'm and undergrad as well. Only got 60th percentile. I asked the head of admissions at my school and he said what schools value depends completely on the school. He said he personally thinks the test is worthless and doesn't consider it (my uni is top 30).

Also it's better that we keep it likes this or else Math major will become the new CS and i'm sure you don't want that >inb4 muh sikrit club We must keep this rate at normal, just teach your kids (if you want ones) how important is math and don't let the normalfag's kids bully the fuck of your kid for being smarter than them
Riddle me this, brainiacs: If there exists a sodium content greater than zero that is some non-zero percent of the recommended daily value, how can 10mg be 0%? By the way this is not Perrier, it's San Pellegrino you uncultured fucks.

Also serious question, why haven't we banned third world countries from using it? It's not that they can't be trusted, but with the amount of criminals in this world; last thing they need is their country going to complete hell

I was doing some homework for my economics class when I happened upon this homework problem concerning Taylor's rule. Most of the time the highest level math I need to know is basic algebra, but this rule required us to derive.
Calculus is a mystery to me and I don't understand how all the manipulation that go into reducing many terms into a finite equation works. Thankfully the assignment provided the derived form of the equations used, but I was wondering if any of you math wizards could explain how this derive happened?

first order approx of f(x) is just f(a) + df/dx(a) * (x-a)
notice that you must know f(a) , usually a=0. The approx holds for a small neighborhood [x-d,x+d]
You probably just need to get used to the notation and learn more about infinite series. Taylor series are used pretty much everywhere, they're very basic (maybe too much). You're basically approximating the graph of a function with a polynomial function (usually a straight line), as you can guess it's a horrible approximation... Comment too long.

Hello all, it is that time of the year again. To everyone within difficult schools and with strenuous course loads; how are you coping, and what are good strategies to not become overwhelmed with anxiety and despair? What is your current academic and grade standing- both prospectively heading into your final exams, and overall? What have been your biggest regrets, and how screwed are you in reality in comparison to your current stress levels? And how do you plan to avoid binge drinking/eating/procrastination?
>>8495953 It's not lack of money or profitability that stalled or withdrew those applications It's the years passing by without getting an approval, hundreds of millions spent on EACH APPLICATION without a spec of real work done on actually building the power plant.
And of course almost all the cost is regulation too

Is it time we accept that we have arrived at the physiological limits of our nervous systems and their ability to formulate increasingly distant abstractions?
Why do so many assume that knowledge is just empirical and will always progress? That may be true for the simple observations of the natural world that we have so far made, but perhaps we will never be able to tackle and unlock certain problems - they... Comment too long.

But the current models strike me as pretty damn clumsy... Shit, using something like probability densities to try an explain the distribution of a theoretical negative charge? Fucking wave-particle duality? Broad incompatibility between small-scale models and macro-scale models?
So sure, coincidentally a few of these models happened to work and allowed us to build a fucking iPhone, but there hasn't been any new paradigm of understanding proposed since the 1920s...

scumbags who claim there is a limit to what is possible
They used to say we could never build a machine that could fly. They used to say the earth was the center of the universe. They used to say we could never make realistic-looking 3D animated water and hair.
Why is sexual desire so ingrained into us? Why does it keep coming back even after copulation? Why do we start developing carnal desires at such a young age? Why do sexually appealing traits commonly no longer appeal to us post-orgasm? Why do a lot of us value purity? Why do a lot of us seek existential knowledge and value it more than sex? Is purity even needed anymore? Is promiscuity the way to go now? I can't fathom this inherent burden.
The tl;dr of your shit is that we are supposed to impregnate all the girls you see every day, but also purity became with religion since we naturally don't want a girl that has taken the D before But IMO, purity shouldn't matter to you if you're not a virgin, just get a non-virgin girl and be happy with her
Hello. Looking for students at NYU, Columbia, Johns Hopkins, OSU, GA Tech, Harvard, Princeton, York, and UC Boulder - preferably grad students in math or physics. I am doing PhD applications at these schools and will be visiting soon - if you'd like to meet up for coffee, talk about research, explore campus, etc then we can exchange emails and such.
The sun transmits energy to us from thousands kilometers away. Energy enough to feed our plants needs, which feed our animals, which feeds us. Why cant we use electromagnetic waves to transmit wireless energy, like the sun does? Maybe using a Teslas Coil?
