Lets talk about your opinions on the top STEM unis in the UK:

University of Oxford > cool on paper only
University of St Andrews > Nobody will remember where you got your degree from
University of Cambridge > Has a nice Library, dream academic student life.
Durham University > looks nice, thats it. Nobody's first choice
University of Birmingham > Do people chose to go here?
University of Southampton > very big brain chioce, top ECS
Imperial College London > sperg world, but im applying
University of Warwick > poor taste, extremely ugly
University of Manchester > Brian Cocks!!!11!1!
Lancaster University > why is this on the charts... who?
UCL (University College London) > not the strand polytechnic
University of Glasgow > too cold, dump
University of Bath > nice logo, wish it wasn't so sporty
University of Nottingham > brainlet land
University of Leeds > don't get the appeal
University of Bristol > for stem you can do better

I do mech eng at soton, I thought about how life at a london uni is probably a lot different as many people commute in. I think the style where everyone lives close is better socially.

>>11887628
Despite southampton as a city not being that great and being quite naff.

Now that you've mentioned you prefer the social aspect of Soton over UoL im wondering what else you like? Im about to start and from this thread i've heard lots of negativity about Soton. Are you glad you're there as opposed to somewhere else? Is the engineering Department as good as it is said to be(comparative to Imperial for facilities and teaching)?

Just quite nervous and want to hear whats good about Soton.

thanks

Posting here for the first time. I've been watching videos on youtube about quantum physics for dummies and found out that particles will behave differently while observing them. So my question is: Does that mean particle-chans are so shy they don't want scientists to look at them?

It is common knowledge that sperm cells regenerate, while eggs do not. Sperm cells are created through mitosis originating from diploid spermatogonium cells.
However, the science on the creating of these spermatogonium cells is less clear. They come from "primordial germ cells" which are the same cells that turn into nonrenewable eggs in female fetuses.
Are these primordial germ cells affected by atrophy? Or are they able to indefinitely create spermatogonium only using nutrients from the body or something? The science is very unclear here.

I want to build a robotic female. I want to be the first person able to build an android that is indistinguishable from a human being, in mind and body.

And my question is, what field or fields should I study? I will obviously not be able to cover every single field needed for this, so what should I invest my time in?

How can a robot be female if it's not born with a XX chromosomes?

Is being female purely a matter of looks? or is it female in the way the robot thinks? and can the robot switch sexes simply by welding a dildo onto it?

How the fuck is this shit still a thing? There is literally no treatment. What the fuck do scientists do all day? We need to lock them all in a room and start going through all the diseases of humanity one by one and if they don’t figure it out within a year we start killing one scientist a day. We’ll go in descending order of disease sufferers, so we’ll reach tinnitus in not too long.

I have a slight form of tinnitus which only shows up when I hear very loud noises. It sounds like interference, like a buzzing sound on my ear, whenever there is a very loud bass noise.

I had checked it out by a doctor, got studies conducted upon me, where they made me listen to a series of pitched sounds and the buzzing was not triggered by them, because the sounds weren't low enough.

Doctor concluded that what I have is "a medical mystery, sometimes we just don't know".
That's some major bullshit.

That's normal, it's the distortion from the sound being too loud. Most people assume it's the loudspeakers and ignore it.

The multiverse is just a naive way of conceptualizing the idea that our universe is not the only one. Our universe is all that exists. If something else exists which can interact with our universe, then it is also our universe. If there are other universes that we cannot interact with, then they don't exist. The multiverse is not some bookshelf of universes. There simply may be several realities that exist each from their own perspective, but with no temporal, spatial, or other manner of relating them, they each are nonexistent from any outside frame of reference.

There are many views of phsyics/cosmology where personal identity survives or the person survives without his memories. Bolztmman brains,many-worlds immortality, poincare recurrence.
This isnt religious at all but its scientifically possible our ride literally has no brakes

concepts to discuss ITT.
