Can someone explain to me how spacetime can be distorted if "distortion" means a relation between two objetcs, and spacetime is not related to any other spacial or temporal absolute in order for it to be considered or even detected as "distorted"?

And, if there is this absolute realm that allows space and time to distort themselves, wouldn't that one be our actual space and time and the fabric described by Einstein only some kind of mesh that gives matter its form?
>>
You would assume at point a and b time flow at the same speed.

But they don't. Hence a relation between two objects.

>Can someone explain to me how spacetime can be distorted

Cause Einstein said so

>>7852350
Also, abandon the notion of an absolute frame of reference. You can use relative frames of reference.

Repeated 8th grade and spent the second time around doing drugs n shit. I'm relatively accomplished though considering my previous positions. Research in a physics lab, taught myself calculus in freshman year up to partial differential equations, studied a lot of classical mechanics and other physics cause I liked it.

I don't think $1^2 = 1$; I think $1^2 = 2$.

If $1^2 = 1$ then $1 \cdot$ has no effect.

How can rationals be countable if real numbers are uncountable?

Hi so I'm hitting a snag with some C++ I've been working on. I'm trying to make a game of Rock paper Scissots, and I made an RNG generate a number from 1-3 and set R, P, or S to the respective number.

The issue is that the RNG is indeed generating 1-3, but the value of R, P, or S isn't getting set to the variable properly. It's just always S.

I have no idea what's going on... but here's my code.

---------------------

#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

int main()
{
const int MIN_PARAM(1);
...
>>
Consider using a switch statement for your if blocks. Also you forgot to include <ctime.h> I believe.
Also take your function declarations out of main.
Switch example:
switch(compRand)
{
case 1:
computerChoice='R';
break;
case 2:
computerChoice='P';
break;
case 3:
computerChoice='S';
break;
default:
break;
}
>>
>>7851967
>if(compRand==3);

See that semicolon? That is your statement. Basically, your if statements do nothing because they immediately close.

So this is what happens.

It checks comprand==1, then does nothing.
assins 'R' to computer choice.
checks if compRand==2, then does nothing.
assaigns 'P' to computer choice.
checks if comprand==3, then does nothing.
Assigns 'S' to computer choice.

And that is why it is always S. Your...

My bad, they aren't function declarations but variable declarations. Ignore that.

Considering the "publish or perish" culture in academia and the immense stress to always report positive results (or get their funding cut), how can we be so sure gravitational waves were really found today by LIGO?
>>
We can't. No independent confirmation yet, still science by proclamation.
>>
>>7851692
well since the results wont be used in practical industry for decades/centuries, no one really cares.

Leave the guys who actually have to do something with this shit to worry about the results/validity of the tests

Pretty much sums up scientific research.

99% of papers out there are just steaming piles of shit. Some of it is fraudulent but no one cares.

Only 1% of papers ever make an impact

Do you need to be super smart to contribute to the world of mathematics? I love doing maths but I'm not really smart like some people in my class so doing maths in university is a little scary. Has anyone gone through maths maybe recommend it?

I don't consider myself overly smart, but I enjoyed university math, those were my favorite classes 2bh (double major math & geology (yeah I know right wtf)).
Don't know about actually contributing though, I was never anywhere near the cutting edge.

Really I'm pretty sure I'm too stupid to actually contribute anything really groundbreaking or new in science (except geology but that doesn't really count cause I can just go map some rock no one has bothered to map and call it a...

I say just go for it OP. Just because you aren't naturally talented, that doesn't mean you can't. Just means you gotta spend a lot of time with it.

I have just a little bit of talent with math, but I take advantage of that and study my ass off and everyone thinks it just becomes super easy for me.

What matters is your study hours and how you spend free time, not how innately good you are.

I don't think anyone actively believes in newtonian gravity do they? Are there people who go out of their way to deny that it's just an approximation?

I think it's ignorance. Most people don't know about general relativity, and whatever doubt informed people had can't exist anymore, now that g waves being the final nail in the coffin of newtonian gravity.

1. There's no such thing as "newtonian gravity". There are newtonian models of the effect of gravity, but they make no attempt at explaining gravity itself.
2. Classical mechanics is (and will always be) a good enough approximation for many cases. There's no need to use more complex models in those cases.
3. Most people have no use knowing about mathematical models of gravity, it would just be a waste of their time (and society's time if you want everyone to learn it)
4. I doubt your...

What are the chances that gravity even exists as we imagine it today?

I mean where the fuck are my gravitons man? We've been looking for them for more than half a century and all we got is this lame higgs boson. Alien tech would probably mindful the shit our of us because their physics is so much closer to the realities of nature, thus allowing them to exploit it, assuming there isn't some horrifying thing about civilizations always killing themselves off before creating self sustaining space colonies or some such.
