Theres 2 ways to draw a gold ball from the first box. TWO WAYS!
>>
>>10972966
You are ignoring the initial conditions as a result of the first pass being gold every time. There are 2 ways to end up in the gold box initially but only one way to end up in the gold/gray box.

2/3 of the time you will have landed in the gold box forcing the 2nd grab to be gold. Only 1/3 of the time will you have landed in the gold/gray box initially which makes the 2nd grab gray.
>>
>>10964633
1/2
The first ball is guaranteed to be gold, so your second ball is going to be gold or silver.
That's the only "chance" that's presented.

If humans ever create interstellar capable vehicles that can travel at >0.6c would the weapon of choice for planetary attacks be accelerated mass impacts? If you could accelerate a huge asteroid to 0.9c and get it into a perfect trajectory to impact the Earth it could feasibly destroy the planet according to standard relativity. Would this be the most efficient way to destroy a planet, scientifically speaking?

>>10973906
Kek, the answer to relativistic weapons is in the next section right after that—cryptophysics. If we line the solar system with nanites that can light-signal (or interlaced shadow signalling) gravity manipulation devices then we can divert the incoming projectiles back into the sun's orbit. Then they basically belong to us and we can shift them straight back where they came from with an added relativistic boost. (Or cache them outside the solar system if we had to fling them against the galactic flow.)

It turns out my solution is documented a little further down:
http://www.projectrho.com/public_html/rocket/spacegunexotic.php#photonicnetwork

No matter what type of control system you use, it will always, always be vulnerable to some hack. Centralizing military resources is literally suicidal.

>Why are blue and red universally considered as the complete opposite of the other?
They're not. Red's opposite is green.
You can't even have reddish-green or greenish-red as real colors because the way you see colors is through oppositions in responsiveness of photoreceptor cells in the eyes to red vs. green and blue vs. yellow.

Are you retarded? Yellow is the opposite of blue.

Is it possible to create a molecule that is very stable and non-reactive, except it reacts with a SINGLE VERY SPECIFIC other molecule that is also otherwise very stable and non-reactive?
A sort of microscopic lock and key, if you will.
10 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>10971639
not exactly. chemical bonds are easily produced especially with some elements like oxygen. so you immediately have to shoot for something thats non reactive with oxygen. which limits your options. so the elements that want to react with oxygen have to be locked up with bonds to shit that doesnt want to

the worst part is that with somethings like oxygen again temperature is mostly a short term factor and over time it will try to bond with damn near anything pretty much regardless of temperature

and then you have special circumstances like ph and electrical exposure. at the end of the day its not worth it most of the time to even think about a 1 way interaction and just look at what you wanted to do to begin with probably. so your question is n/a and what ever you wanted to use it for is more important

Yes it works, as does shrooms.

Despite not being my field I've done an asston of research on pharmacology with recreational drugs, especially microdosing and it honestly disgusts me this shit is schedule 1 when it's more effective and less harmful than prescription meds for reasons that aren't just "nature good pills bad"

Normalniggers might be impressed, but I've worked in academia long enough to look at this and think you're an idiot. Even most people might think it's a giant waste of time. In today's world, having a degree in biology doesn't mean you have to work in biological labs. There are tons of guys with physics degrees working on cancer using computational models.

>>10972790
Honestly, keep moving forward. Having 2 bachelor or 2 master degrees is really not worth it unless you happened to earn it along the way. This can happen if you're doing a MSc in biotech for example and need 1 or 2 extra classes to get a MSc in biology or whatever. But do not waste your life getting degrees. The entire point is to learn a skillset to become a researcher or get a job, so why not do exactly that?
