the navy was advertising a cool program at my school where you get to work on a nuclear sub as a physicist and they'll pay for your school or something, in exchange for a few years of your life. you should look into stuff like that, you get money and people have to say "thank you for your service" to you for the rest of your life.

Triangles. How do they work?

what's the point of this garbage?

Draw three points that aren't colinear. You can construct a triangle with three lines.
Triangles have many properties relating their side lengths and angles, as well as similarity and congruency.
There exist relationships between circles and inscribed triangles.

Is there a correlation between avoiding marriage and being successful? I could list many influential thinkers who never got married. How can a man be successful if he has to spend 20+ years of his life wageslaving to provide for his family?

It might be that you have had sex and still say this, but your understanding of this is severely corrupted. Not exactly sure how this happened, but I know that it is possible to completely fix this! You are hurting yourself by lying to yourself like this.

people who seriously support the drug prohibition in its current form must be crazy.

>>11306023
Absolutely. The US gov should let their citizens do what they want, as long as no harm befalls whether financial, physical or emotional on others.

A good way to do drug prohibition is to go after dealers/financial services. If you're selling drugs, you should be killed immediately on the spot execution style. If you're doing drugs, the police shouldn't do anything. Target the provider and not the victim.

im starting med school this year and i still dont know how to take notes.

i have a desktop at home for gaming, and ive gotten by just recording lectures and making anki notes out of them.

i want to be more productive in lecture tho. so i was wondering if i should get a tablet? thinking of getting the surface go so i can draw stuff and still have a full windows PC. or should i just stick with good old pencil and paper?

P.S: all my textbooks are PDFs too so its hard to read them on my phone if i stay at school
