Why is suicide considered "wrong"?

You only get that afterlife if you commit genocide in the name of the Chaos Gods
Thousands of low value men kill themselves every single year and no one gives a fuck, even their own parents are maybe sad for a week total.

Men kill themselves more and more because society obviously doesn't give a fuck. Meanwhile if some gangbanging whore is missed, the entire country goes batshit crazy.
Ok so i get a grandchild, then i can suicide?
Yeah, it seems like suicide is only ever wrong when you're rich and handsome. Otherwise, it seems not only right but also a wise decision
Extremely good motivator for suicide.

should I take trigonometry or just jump straight to pre-calc?
27 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
For the ET B.A.S I'm going after
>Mathematics (4-6 credits)
>Complete either MATH 126 & MATH 127 (6 credits total) *OR* MATH 128 (5 credits) *OR* MATH 181 (4 credits).

So the way you earn the most credits, 6, is taking MATH 126 and MATH 127. That's precalculus 1 and 2, respectively. If you have a decent SAT or ACT score, you can enroll in MATH 124 (without a placement test), which is college algebra. It is usually recommend that new college students take it just to get all the fundamentals down at a college level. You can always test out but you do really have to know the material.

It is surprising how many students join a program and get dropped because they can't pass their math classes. I had a friend from HS who passed HS algebra but had been taught literally nothing. Got a bad SAT score and had to take some rudimental math classes and had difficulty with them, but he just kept taking one each semester, so he was still taking all of his other credits for like three years when he eventually was able to attempt MATH 124. He failed it three times and got kicked out of the program, and all of that was paid for by his parents so he could get a kinesiology degree. Education is a business.

Sometimes they have all the right material but all the wrong things. You can read research but they never go into too much detail as to what they are using they just describe its state but not quality. Like generic vs name brand.
This is true.

Thanks to this brainlet every capable European scientist left their homeland for America. How do we shift the capital of scientific progress back to Europe bros?
13 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
Mexican here. Believe it or not, our culture isn't anti-science, even if it doesn't particularly encourage studying it. Proof of it is we have basically no anti vaxxer retards in Latin America.
>Thanks to this brainlet every capable European scientist left their homeland for America.
Very true.
>How do we shift the capital of scientific progress back to Europe bros?
Make it more attractive in Europe to be a scientist. That will be a long, hard road.


Catholic countries have traditionally had a lot of problems with science and a strange hand to burn scientists at the stake.

Another major problem in Europe is academic inbreeding (less so in GB). Around here it is quite extreme and they will only hire their own graduates. People caught out on scientific fraud are let back in again. There is no shame.
Pretty sure neither Paperclip nor the post-war European policy was his idea.
>Hope that Trump gets reelected and lure scientists with attractive offers to Europe?
if trump gets re-elected wages and the economy of america are going to keep going up which will make america even more attractive to move to
>our culture isn't anti-science
The problem is that Latin American culture is essentially pro-murder and ultra-violence. You can't build a real society when it's cut out from below by constant crime waves.

Remember that time a cartel mutilated and tortured 50 people to death and then dumped their bodies on a highway with a sign saying they did it, and nothing happened? Because violent criminals are so common and the police are completely corrupt?

That's the future of a Mexican America. American crime is already dominated by blacks and Mexicans, and those numbers are only going to go up as demographics change.

Is time the essence of change or is it the other way around?
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.
there can be no change within time
Yet there is change in space?
Time may change me, but I can't change time.
Time is the essence of change.
It also holds that the essence of time is change.
Change and time are quasi-equivalent.

It's not a theorem that could be explained in brainlet terms. Google it and read up on it yourself, we're not here to spoonfeed you. Come here when you have something specific you don't understand about it.

What is a Hopfield Network? What does it do and how? In simple language please.
By the looks of it, its a neural network design which guarantees convergence. This is an issue though, since it cannot guarantee that it's the global minimum it converges to, only a local one.

In simpler language: it's a neural net which tries to work always, but only works sometimes because of this. No problem is really solved using this design, but more computations are required.
Erm I tried this thats why I came here to have a conversation. I want to know why its considered an associative memory thingy but a boltzman machine isnt even thougg they are very similar.

Do you think it's a good idea to go back to school at the age of 30 ?

My shitty job sucks (and my life by extension)
30 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
Don't fall for this turbo-wage-slave shitpost. Changing careers happens all the time and people usually do better as a result. One because you are motivated and devoted and two because you will actually feel better and mire grateful to be where you are. The only flipside is that you will be a junior along the rest of fresh grads, but you already knew that was part of the process in becoming a new person.

Good luck.
>Do you think it's a good idea to go back to school at the age of 30 ?
Depends on your circumstances.
Regardless, there's no age ceiling for admission into university, so that's the best answer you'll get, faggot.
We have 2 kind of highschools in my country . One is the typical highschool which lasts 3 years and allows you to enter a lot of universities if you're a good student. The other is technical highschool which lasts 3 years also but it's for students who just want to learn a basic job like electrician or plumber etc. My dad attends a technical highschool. I should have specified that
Oh, okay. Well it's never too late to learn. I haven't been to school in nearly 15 years so a lot of it was forgotten, but with a lot of patience and hard work it's been coming back to me.

You should be proud of him for working hard.
This. Working till you drop dead while living longer and longer (unless you die of work)? The average person betting on working in the same career path for 45 years is gonna get so disappointed at some point.

The most important thing is to acquire, retain and expand very strong fundamental skills while focussing on applications that bring in money.
