I got a yeast infection on my dickhead once due to phimosis
How did you cure it, asking for a friend.
Curing the infection? I just wiped away the foul-smelling "corn flakes" that formed as they push their way from the sheltered periphery of the dickhead towards the peehole. Infection cleared up after a week.

Curing the phimosis? I incorporated stretching into my thrice-daily teenage beatoff schedule.
I often have fungal infection on my balls. Mycoster can cure it in 3 weeks but it comes back.
Not OP but I have a recurring problem on my perineum where the skin becomes soft, red and itchy, and sloughs off if you scratch. Worse in the winter and dry weather, any advice?

I began an investigation a while ago into discovering electromagnetism. I discovered how to find the voltage of an electric field, the magnitude and direction of the field lines using phet's charge and fields simulation. I made a program that I later reduced to: u/|u|*(9(coulombs of the charge)/|u|^2) where u is the vector that goes from one charge to some point in the field and for many charges you add them together (apparently they are waves).

Meanwhile, I also spent some time playing around with phet's faraday simulation, and I discovered that at a distance from the magnet, the equation for the electric field resembles the magnetic field though with different constants.

After playing with falstad magnetostatic field's simulation, I realized that the magnetostatic field was perpendicular to the electrostatic field, and returning back to the faraday's lab I figured that the magnetic field induces an electric field, and vice versa. Then at some point at this website I came across with a mention of green's theorem in relation to the area of a curve. At the same time, I remembered when I was investigating buoyancy I had connected it with the equation I discovered for pressure in static fields, and it was obvious in one dimension but for more dimensions one could have complex surfaces. Then while trying to come up with an equation for the electric field induced by a wire, I realized I just had to integrate, but in the case of a loop wire, I'd have to integrate around a curve, and thus it sounds like it could be related to green's theorem. But of course I don't know how to do these sort of integrations, so my idea is to think of a curve as some function that takes as parameter, a point along a path (as if radians) and that returns a vector. And then find an equation for the solenoid's electric field so that I can make predictions about the induced magnetic field's magnitude, is this a good approach?

Time is an illusion.

The Past does not exist except in evidence and memory.

The Future can be effected; it exists.

You can actually time travel to the Future.

Therefore, Humanity looks at time backwards.

People assume that the past exists and that the future does not exist yet…

The Truth is that there is only the present and the future.

The past vanishes as the present becomes the future.

You're views on time and the timeline are totally backwards.

There's only the movement of particles. You wouldn't say throwing a rock means the rock changed time, it changed space. But the rest of physics operates the same. What we call particles at somewhere "Then" vs particles at somewhere we call "Now". What else is new?

I asked this first at /g/ >>>/g/71046288
but that was probably bad place for it. I'll ask here again, if mods don't mind:

High radiation fucks with electronics, unless they're shielded with Faraday cage. Right.
But those ware not electronics, but crude, electric flashlights with led batteries, I've seen fair share of those in my youth.
They shouldn't have died, unless they got flooded with water that caused them to short-circut.

I know it's only a TV show, but so far it was pretty accurate tech & history wise, I'd ignore it otherwise.

mods - no bully pls.

>Beginning with the three engineers down below Chernobyl, viewers see them use dynamo torches to light their way to the valves, but in reality, it's believed that the engineers simply held onto the nearby pipes to guide them to their destination. After all, they knew the directions certain pipes would lead them in. But that doesn't work for television, so changes were made in order to allow audiences to see what was happening.



soviet russia can't afford flashlights for hazmat crews, because that concept didn't exist in russia (remember that this is the same country that dumped 3x the amount of radiation into a pristine lake as part of their atomic bomb project)

What is believed to be the cause of fetishes? I mean, some, like an attraction to pregnant women, seem to fit in fairly well to the biological drive to reproduce. But what about fetishes like bondage, which doesn’t fit in with that, and some seem completely opposed, like an attraction to robot girls. How does it even work? What causes fetishes to develop?

How would that turn someone into a latex fetishist? Exposure to a rubber band??
Plastic toy wrapping
Inflatable swimming wheels
Bubble foil
A lot of children are routinely exposed to all three things, and more. So there is more needed to turn someone into a fetishist.

I heard somewhere that relatively recently, in terms of that kind of thing, the Sahara desert was significantly wetter and greener than in the present day. What would it take to start making it like that again, and what would be the effects?

If they have a stake in it they will support it. Solar panels are already commonly used on the continent.
If it's so simple, why haven't you done it before
A phobia is an irrational fear of something. Do you see where you went wrong with your comment?
Like if you turn an entire place into solar panels by taking the land from them and none of the moeny going into the local inhabitants they will be pissed just like anyone else.
The engineering is straight forward and people realised this more than 100 years ago. The problem is that much of Africa is in a state of war and terrorists roam across the rest.

How do you reach that conclusion? I hope God is real and there is an afterlife, but God doesn't answer what existence is at all at a deep enough level to be satisfactory. Even God himself would have to have questions about existence and the nature of reality.

The whole multiverse conundrum is that those things you seek are necessarily out of your reach.
o i am laffin
Please don't involve the multiverse in your efforts to satisfy that part of your brain that is addicted to making sense.
Even if this place doesn't have its own "point", we have points and ends. The question is, then, what the fuck do we want to get out of existing here? For me the answer is pretty simple. In this world the thread to our existence is constant. What we should all strive to do is to secure our continued existence better. You would say, "but shouldn't there be something more to it than just that." And I would respond, maybe but this task is so huge that we will likely never stop working at it. Like OP suggested, even if we spread not just cross the universe but across the multiverse, the threat to our existence would likely remain. This is a never-ending job, and we will likely never be able to rest on our laurels and just masturbate all day. This is why some people who do this already are so self-deluded. But they will all wake up one day.
This, total enlightenment of humanity should be the goal to reach ASAP. We won’t survive with retards.
You don't know what the multiverse is.

Article says the plutonium leak was caused by kitty litter, but the real story behind the fake story is that I caused this other leak of meme plutonium, and this leak was totally separate from the OPM breach.
He literally does that. Read the proof months ago and had a good laugh, dont recall the exact details but I do remember he defines some variable as an "special infinite" and then bases the proof on the premise that ∞ + a = ∞ and shit, which is fucking laughable.

You're delusional. Even if you're "working" on whatever you deem important, you're still homeless and unproductive, which keeps you from being a fulfilled, functioning member of society.
You're the same as those wow addicted retards that waste their life away playing 17 hours a day, except that you think that what youre doing is right because you waste your time in a respected field instead of a video game.
I was the single most productive man on Earth in at least a few of the last several years.
Bro just define infinity-hat as number for which zeta(infinity-hat) = 0 and Re(infinity-hat) =/= 1/2. Lol that wasn’t hard. Riemann was such a dumbass for not proving this shit immediately lol.
