With the way the human body is, what would be the absolute limit for all categories or human fitness?
E.g how fast could a human possibly run?
Maximum weight lifted?
How much time could someone spend doing rigorous exercise?
>>
>>10662354
human biology has no limit, the only thing we have currently is expiry time but that too is being pushed slowly
>>
At least 27mph, 1 ton, and 48hrs iirc.
>>
>>10662354
I figure both lifting strength and top speed are hard limited by the weakest part of the body that is involved in.
So whatever the yield strength of a human ligament is, probably.
>>
>>10662451
nice try brainlet.
while the force a muscle can exert is proportional to it's cross-section surface, its weight grows faster.

I've been told that it was a jack of all trades and employers would rather higher compsci or engineers or finance. Also, that postgrad is harder and more competitive for less benefits than other STEM majors, but physics was what I had in plan and I'm about to register to those courses. Is it really a meme major? Should I choose something else or dual major, or is physics fine?

If you like physics, do physics. You might have to move to an up and coming city like Austin or Minneapolis, but there are plenty of jobs. Samsung and Applied Materials are in Austin. Both are hiring like mad.
>>
People who think there isnt an absolute crazy thirst for experienced grad students in physics are the ones who are either still in undergrad and didnt meet any of the people in these companies or studied theoretical astrophysics or HEP and didnt collaborate heavily on experiments. Its simply wrong in the Europe, dont know about US, also

Gravity waves propagate at the speed of light and are generated the motion of bodies of mass. So they are just waves in whatever undetected medium allows for light to travel in a "vacuum" desu. The speed of light is not infinite because this medium has some amount of mass and density. The sea of virtual particles suggested to solve the mystery of the composition of this medium is paradoxically the aether that is ruled out in general relativity. This medium permeates all matter because it is so fine, thus creating the illusion that space has physical properties.

When you suck all the energy out of empty space and condense it into matter, the space where the energy used to be is now stretched into a gravity well. I don't know if that's correct but that's how I visualize it
>>
>>10661861
I always thought of gravity as form of negative energy created by a reaction to large quantities of dense positive energy. 2 sides of the same coin.

The degree of public resentment in China depends entirely on what the Chinese government permits/orders. and that public part has increased lately.

What would happen if the material making the various objects orbiting our sun was all reshuffled? In this new arrangement, Earth would be more-or-less unchanged, but it would now be a moon of a gas giant. In addition, all the other planets and moons (along with the asteroids and comets) would now be making up a Earth-like moons as well. How many gas giants could fit into the Goldilocks Zone, and how many moons would there be?

In other planets with an atmosphere, wouldn't the sky be just as blue as ours? Because of the way light is diffracted and how the color spectrum works. So actually, what would it take to have those alien looking skies like in scifi drawings? Green/Red skies, etc
>>
>>10663069
The methane atmosphere of Titan is a yellow haze, so changing atmospheric composition is the way to go.

No, our atmosphere is blue because 3/4 of it is Nitrogen

I don’t know why the fuck I’m asking this here but whatever. I’m hopeless. I have this issue with my right ear that no doctor can diagnose and find the cause.
Whenever I cough and sneeze, or crouch and stand up fast, I hear this weird air, pressure or vibrating noise in my right ear. Sounds like there’s something inside that’s rubbing against something.
I had many tests done for this, as well as that tube the doctor shoves in your nose, and everything seems to be working fine. The tests are clean. Doctors say there’s nothing wrong. But I know something is off.
I’m usually really good at looking up and googling symptoms to diagnose myself but I can’t find anything for this. I feel like I have a rare dysfunction that nobody knows anything about. Please help.

>Meniere’s Disease
This too sounds plausible, has a lot of overlapping symptoms with ETD. Perhaps go to another ENT and get a second opinion. I personally am not gonna give up, I will keep seeking assessment until I get a diagnosis.
>>
>>10663162
It’s not Meniere’s. The dizziness is different. Meniere’s is like you get sudden episodes of hearing loss, loud tinnitus and vertigo that lasts long. My symptoms are not episodic and quite different than that. What about you? What kind of symptoms do you have?
>>
>>10663176
I listed most of my symptoms in my first post. I can flex some kind of muscle near the back of my jaw and make a grinding/popping ocourr in my ears, feels like going up and down in elevation. Pressure then no pressure, over and over. Along with tinnitus, loud popping followed by temporary deafness leading into tinnitus and my hearing coming back. The popping happens on it's own though too. Drives me nuts when I am trying to fall asleep. I also notice extreme sensitivity when cleaning my ears with q-tip, towards the back of my ear canal against the drum is extremely tender and often painful. All this started last August and the symptoms have persisted.
>>
>>10663189
Hope you figure that one out. Cause I have my symptoms for a decade and haven't got a clue about anything yet.
>>
>>10663222
God damn thats terrible. As I said before dont give up in your quest. I suggest finding a forum that specializes in ear medicine. Seek answers and again, seek second opinions. I myself have run into doctors and medical professionals that had no clue about something bothering me, talk to someone else and they immediately know what it is. No doctor knows everything.
