If I get an erection and then a lightsaber cuts off my dick will it stay erect? The lightsaber automatically cauterizes the wound so the blood cant escape.

And if it did stay erect for how long would it be like that?

Hi 4chan. I'm here to talk about two circuit component inventions of mine, the Biode and Transratiometer. These inventions are silicon or semiconductor based logical processing elements, which are capable of reducing computer circuit complexity to 1/2 the original number of parts. In addition, computers may become up to 2x as fast and efficient by implementing these technologies. Check out the circuit diagrammes I've rewritten and talked about in my scientific paper.

These devices can be made the same way as diodes and transistors, for the biode and transratiometer respectively, as p/n, n/p/n junctions. Simply put, I promise you they are produced equivalently to diodes and transistors - just with a different number of outputs.

I have produced halfway functional models by modifying transistors and diodes, but I do not have the laboratory to produce real models. I come here today to look for research partners or sponsorship.

Here's the paper:

https:[//]www[.]dropbox[.]com/s/cntd1fn27jc7zeb/BIODES%20AND%20TRANSRATIOMETERS[.]pdf?dl=0

P.S. A lot of my circuit diagrammes use resistors in the schematics, but as modern computers do not use resistors so often anymore, but rather have diodes doing the work of the resistor, they can be substituted with diodes in my schematics and the reduction of parts and function remains the same.

The transratiometer knows its potential at all times. It knows this because it knows where the potential isn't. By subtracting its potential from not its potential, or its non potential from its potential, whichever is greater - it obtains a halving or split. The doping subsystem uses deviations to generate corrective currents to drive the transratiometer from a potential where it is to a potential where it isn't, and arriving at a potential that it wasn't, it now is. Consequently, the position where it is is now the position that it wasn't, and if follows that the position that it was is now the position that it isn't. In the event that the position that it is in is not the position that it wasn't, the system has acquired a voltage. The voltage being the difference between where the potential is and where it wasn't. If voltage is considered to be a significant factor, it too may be corrected by the biode. However, the biode must also know where it was. The transratio transfer characteristics works as follows: Because a voltage has modified some of the information that the transratiometer has obtained, it is not sure just what it is. However, it is sure what it isn't, within reason, and it knows what it was. It now subtracts where the potential should be from where it wasn't, or vice versa. And by differentiating this from the algebraic sum of where it shouldn't be and where it was, it is able to obtain the deviation and its variation, which is called output.

>The ring is for rapidly getting large sums of cargo to and from earth

Yeah, because you want to build space stations, bases on the moon, etc. e.g. a self-sufficient space economy that can grow based on exploiting ressources found in space. However, the orbital ring itself is so enormously expensive to build that you can just build the space economy itself with rockets directly, at which point you would no longer need an orbital ring to launch gigantic amounts of payload into space.
>>
>>10318592
Rings are long term investments, you pay a sum now and make your money back through cost reductions going forward
Rockets are good short term, but will always have their cost attached to fuel, including the creation and storage of the fuel
An orbital ring however needs only energy to function
Rockets can handle things for another decade, but further than that will need something better for getting off world
Habitats being able to be built are irrelevant, this isn't a video game where we can only queue one building at a time, we can do both at once
nor is it something that requires the complete dedication of the entirety of earth's industrial capability forever, specialization exists, the equipment and personnel needed for a ring are likely to be a fair bit different from what we need for an O'Neil cylinder

Top tier comedy anon, I’m bumping this thread so everyone can enjoy this fine humor of yours!

Okay, I need help. Say you have 2 immortal observers. Let’s say, a robot and a zombie. The robot is orbiting a black hole and will orbit the black hole forever. He is watching the zombie falling into the black hole and approach the event horizon. Meanwhile the zombie is recording his descent into the black hole with a video camera.

The zombie gets closer and closer to the event horizon and as he does the zombie is recording. The robot sees the zombie slow down. The zombie sees the robot and the universe speed up until the zombie passes the event horizon.

A septillion years later the black hole evaporates due to Hawking radiation and the zombie and robot compare notes. What the fuck happened? What the fuck do each observe about the experience the other has.
