The absolute madlad
There's some kind of pattern here, but I'm just not seeing it. What do all these proofs have in common?
>Cantor Diagonalization
>There is no set of all sets
>Proof of undecidability
>Godel Incompleteness
what if Z is the empty set? Doesn't this proof rely on Z not being empty?
This sounds like circular reasoning, but then again I'm dumb so feel free to show me why it's not
If Z is empty, then we have mapped every x to a set containing x. Then no x is mapped to the empty set, which is in P(X), so we don't have a 121 correspondence.

Why do people argue gender differences are a "social construct", but at the same time they argue transgenders are born that way?

wow, claiming males and females have different brain structure?
not a single discriminated group has similar suicide rates. Not even actually discriminated ones like gays in Iran.
There's only an 'intellectual inconsistency' in that diagram because of the "no significant innate differences between males and females" part, but that has nothing to do with gender roles or why gender is socially constructed.

You could omit that part and there wouldn't be an inconsistency, while also still representing transexuality by the same amount.

How many of you can actually separate true science from authoritative claims, and do so without losing the valuable scientific truths mixed within the bureaucracy?

What dogma's have you accepted because simply you would be shamed to think otherwise?

How many of you have feared sharing your original idea (which may be fallacious) because you knew if it was right someone with more power than you what take credit for it?

At the very least, this fear makes discerning quacks easier, because a genius with no reputation would never risk sharing an idea they believed held value. Is this the world you were told you live in?

Why do people demand the government pays for college instead of demanding for college to become cheaper?
Employers and the public stopped respecting degrees for the sole reason that there is a huge inflation going on in terms of how many people get degrees on what terms.
So when I talk of "how many people", I'm talking about the percentage of people who end up with a degree.
This issue is imo considerably worse in the USA than in Europe. Whereas in Europe roughly 10 % of the population attains a degree equal or superior to the Bachelor's degree, it seems to be more than 30 % in the USA. This is closely connected to "on what terms". Because the percentage of people that actually end up with a Bachelor's degree is so high, we deal with a majority of people who should not have these degrees in the first place. This is clearly visible from the fact that over the decades much of what originally constituted education for undergraduates in the USA was replaced by stuff that ought to be taught in high school. People should not be able to pass high school and simultaneously turn out to be unable to perform the most simplistic algebraic manipulations. This hasn't happened in Europe yet despite a lot of simplifications even there going on.

Percentage of people getting degrees
The quality of education
different things.

If you are so smart, why are you confusing those two?
If you are talking about something else through hints, then you could make smarter hints so that both meanings make sense.
You can boil that question down to: "Why are people still giving these institutions so much respect?" Truly if there wasn't this mystique around them people would be more open to the idea that they are overpriced, instead they believe that a degree makes you more intelligent than everyone else, so how could it ever be over priced?
>Percentage of people getting degrees and The quality of education are different things.
>That reddit spacing
>You're a faggot

Just because they're different things doesn't mean that there is no connection between the two. It is known that the number of people that attain a degree in any given major is negatively correlated to the average competence of the group. This has been noted over and over again in the case of engineers students. If the overall number of people that get a degree increases, what does this imply?
>If you are so smart, why are you confusing those two?
I'm not but thanks for showing everyone that you're functionally retarded.

Have you taken physics, anon?
Wait wait wait wait wait.

215 replies? Really? The wheels have no affect on the speed of the plane. There are absolutely no engines on the wheels at all. Planes are not cars. 100% of the thrust of the plane comes from the engines. A conveyor belt will simply cause the free spinning wheels to spin faster and the plane easily takes off. As stated here:
But ... but muh conveyor.
Conveyor belts are not magic. Your magic converyor belt would need infinite speed to counter the acceleration because again, and I cannot state this enough THE FUCKING WHEELS SPIN FREELY.
All the conveyor can do is make the wheels spin faster. They cannot stop the plane from moving forward!

There is no room for debate. Why in Cthulhu's holy name are we still discussing this?
Yes, the plane uses its engines to propel itself and not its wheels
The treadmill is simply a short runway
rotational speed =/= translational speed
in the mud the speed of your wheels is 0, same as the cars speed.

Who here realizes that climate alarmism is just a sad attempt at self preservation and actually supports climate change knowing that in 100 years we can fix it? Who here knows that a 2 degree global increase in temperature will not only kill the fishing industry but it will render most of the continent of Africa and huge parts of the middle east unfarmable due to the extreme seasonal temp swings and borderline uninhabitable due to the changing habitable zones of deadly animals such as the tsetse fly?

Even if the global temp increases by 5 degrees and sea levels rise by 500 feet I'll be completely fine and can live off the land for 40+ years. Meanwhile all the coastal city faggots are going to drown and massacre each other for food and half the Africa will starve out because no ones going to send them food for free lmfao.

>China is owning the USA
Wow I wonder why.

Here's a scientific thesis on what makes Ingrid so exceptionally fuckable:

1 Geometry: Compared to most hentai characters that are in their teens or early 20s, Ingrid seems to be an older woman in her late 20s or early 30s which is evident by her facial proportions like wider eye shape, larger nose and wider lips. Due to her age she also has larger and more curved breasts and buttocks. Due to these geometrical characteristics, Ingrid is considered to be a milf, a pretty uncommon presence in the loli-plagued hentai industry. This kind of uniqueness is commonly known to create curiosity and sexual tension

2 Color: Ingrid seems to create uniqueness and surprise element once again with the unconventional colors that constitute her. Her tanned skin is probably the first thing that stands out about her appearance since most characters featured in hentai are pale. Her dark skin is contrasted with her captivating yellow eyes and purple hair. In color theory, yellow is the color of creativity and fresh energy which serves to fuel our sexual tension and imagination. Although pink hair is common among anime characters, Ingrid seems to draw more attention to them thanks to the contrast with her skin. Pink is the result of white (the color of purity) blending with red (the color of passion), Pink is also thought to be the color of femininity and sexuality while also providing a sense of comfort

3 Details: Ingrid has a lot of subliminal details on her design that point to sexual pursuit or recent engagement to sexual acts. For example her hair is more detailed than most characters and some of it is carelessly placed in front of her face to suggest thrusting movements and speed. She also appears to have shrunken pupils, a common phenomenon during sexual climax.

For science!
I agree. It holds true that immaturity is consistent in people attracted to younger characteristics. Perhaps MILFs can lead to a redemptive turn in the hentai industry for us normal people.
>In color theory, yellow is the color of creativity and fresh energy
nigga what
color theory is not pseudoscience. It's a branch of psychology. It studies how certain colors affect our mood and It's useful for artists
This, Ingrid is the ultimate female.
How can reality ever compete?
Color theory is not entirely pseudoscience, but it's mostly pseudoscience. In particular
> yellow is the color of creativity and fresh energy
is pseudo

Computers need to have needs to have real intelegense or understanding of subjective. We humans feel music impact because we can spell words in diferent intonations / we surrounded by sounds that nature creates (So we cant make A.I. that truly have sense of aesthetic).
What do you mean ? Humans have sense of aesthetic and beauty because environment gave it to us .For exampleome some combination colors fairly associated with danger , and some with things that correlate with dopamine release.
how does that differ from what I said?
