Are you saying tension of a string isn't a force?
hasn't been good in over a decade

There's a reason why the robot was eventually disabled and [r9k] became the feels board
There's also the problem with imperfections in the connection which can lead to rotation as well.
Saying there is actually a force in a rotational frame is kind of like suggesting the Earth is a fixed point that all of the other objects in the universe move around, and there are inexplicable forces that cause them to move. Knowing the Earth is orbiting the Sun and follows its inertial path through curved space-time allows you to model the motion of the planets much more simply, and offers profound insight into the nature of the universe, but it's not strictly necessary. You can create fictional forces to explain the apparent motion of planets as seen by the Earth, and that's exactly what people did.

When you try and make science seem unintuitive, and get views by telling an audience that they are smarter than their high school teachers, you can end up asserting that fictional forces that are necessary to describe the apartment motion of objects in a rotational frame are "real" when that motion and its cause would arise naturally from understanding the object is following an inertial path through curved space-time. In fact, the over-zealous schoolteacher is just trying to make sure you understand that when you look at the stars spin in a circle through the sky, it is the rotation of the Earth you are seeing and not the rotation of the universe around the Earth. One of these views grants insight into the true nature of the universe, and the other does not.

Have you cheated before?

Would you agree that natural scientists are more interested in things that are unexplainable? Wouldn't the main purpose of science be turning unexplainable concepts into explainable ones? The time it takes figuring out something unexplainable is greater in science.
They're usually interested in things that are falsifiable, as in, things capable of being proven false but may be true. That's why you don't get many scientists looking for ghosts and things like that, because while ghosts might exist they also might not so the search could be endless. I think that applies to most things but some things might bend the rules a bit, like finding a theory of everything etc, I'm not sure if that's falsifiable
>while ghosts might exist they also might not so the search could be endless
sorry i should have said: while ghosts might exist it can't be proven they don't so the search could be endless
Yeah for sure, because if we can explain the unexplainable, then we can find cures for diseases and the like.
For example, Koch finding the causative agent for TB eventually led to drugs designed for an acid-fast bacterium

Holy shit, Feynman was a fraud and QED is a lie.
You should watch the video.
Renormalization seems ok to me. You basically say that charge is actually zero but some interaction is infinitely strong so the net effect is infinite x 0, and this produces some finite number.
In any case its a theory that only describes what is already been measured in an experiment. You can extrapolate and say the trend must be valid out of the range you measured first, but for how long?
One can't just say QED holds at literally any energy.
Also, Feynman didn't invent QED. Just these useless diagrams that allegedly simplify the calculation except you still have to draw dozens ir hundreds of them and who can tell you did it right? I prefer the old way and 10 pages of easy but tedious math are done in a click with a Mathematica program.
Fascinating video.

That is to ask: is science the process, or is science the results?

If this is 2 separate things frequently get conflated, do we need new words or language to differentiate the two?
STEM-TARDS are literal subhumans. If they got their way the entire universe would literally be nonstop imploding because of their retarded tech-first dogmatism

How good you are at mathematics is directly related to how smart you are. Saying that you don’t like mathematics or have a bad mathematics background is just a cope for being dumb. Mathematics has the most demand on IQ of any STEM subject. Simple as.

t. CS major that isn’t good at mathematics

>What are the scientific of this?
This is what the Eternal Jew is really worried about, The third largest economic Powerhouse and only with half the population of entire size of USA thank's to bigger brain power.

All Ancient Germanic Tribe bloodlines will be united under one flag, But the language's remain as the are best language's you ear can hear, The best of the best white breeding stock in this world. If we achieve this will be true European Union with Capital In Berlin. With the brain-power we will have be exploring star's and soon leave the rest with their common ancestor from africa. We will dominate the world only with technology that others do not have a true White Man's way of new Atlantis.

That's what you should be working on to give you hope, can you feel it? just like in 1933 again.

exactly 8/11/2023 will be a solid 100 year anniversary since our greatest uncle heroically took to the streets to send the Weimar Globo-Homo a strong signal, We should go to the streets on that date and remove these "rent-free" politicians and make their Over-lord stain their pant's solidly with liquid matter, This indeed will be a strongest bond on earth, if that doesn't happen we'll die out like Brown Apes shit slinging lower denomynators on each other.

"Rest" of the world has sub 80 IQ, these animals are barely conscious. It wouldn't matter if we just Nuked them off.
jews and asians have significantly higher iqs though
Why do you want to dominate the world, are you not happy in your advanced ethnostate? Russia and China will fuck you
Last time you acted with this line of reasoning in mind it ended up with Germany destroyed and split in half.
So by all means, go ahead, try your luck.
Whites generally don't count jews and asians when discussing racial hierarchies.

American college admissions' affirmative action is an example of this.

That’s what this boils down to ultimately. Autistic pilpul to justify chopping your dick off. Shit goes back at least to Zeno’s tortoise.
Sometimes programming languages have good definitions of math concepts. They tend to be a lot clearer possibly because there's one proper set of documentation written by a handful of experts with community feedback instead of people making up their own definitions strewn throughout thousands of research papers and textbooks over hundreds of years

In JavaScript you can have arrays, maps, sets etc and these are the mathematical equivalent of arrays, maps and sets. They hold numbers (or other things) in various ways and are iterable. All of these come under the generic term of collection. So a map is a type of collection and a set is also a type of collection. In JavaScript they're either keyed or indexed

How do I take the stargazing-pill? What do I need? What kind of telescope? How do I know if it's even possible in my area given all the light pollution?
if you live in a city, then just forget about that
no chance
It's a boring, expensive hobby with shit hours. Seriously, there's a reason astronomers are always at least one of the following: autistic, alcoholics, fatasses.
Get a small cheaper Celestron or something. Or just look at the moon with binoculars. Point a telescope at the area under Orion's belt. And the pleiades are cool. Jupiter is also a good easy target usually it is very bright and you can see the moon's and sometimes even atmospheric bands with a small scope. Saturn is cool too but smaller and depends on its orientation.
Look at https://www.lightpollutionmap.info/
If your area is green, yellow or red then im sorry to say that you are fucked without some pretty expensive equipment. If not then get a celestron (cheaper) or a meade (expensive) telescope

What do you actually learn if you get a degree in engineering and what are your job prospects?
Depends on what sort of Engineering you are learning.
I did a degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering. I mostly learnt about Computer Architecture, currently my work is mostly related with GPU computing and Graphics Rendering.
Honestly, only 2 of the 4 years needed for a engineering degree are dedicated to studying what you need for your field.
The material is scant and doesn't really teach you much besides the bare-bones. Most of the application knowledge is picked up from experience.

This should not be happening to anyone anymore least of all Ozzy. You chuds and pencil pushers need to drop your trifling pursuits and refocus all your labs on this cure from all angles.

>drop a hula hoop on a cube
>it flies off as soon as the hoop touches ground
Your reference frame is the portals. From that point of view, the cube is moving. Not only that, but it follows a continuous path through the portals. The exit portal being stationary and the cube continuing its path, there is nothing else for it to do but shoot out. Still looks like a hula hoop from the right perspective (the portals) in that sense that anything that goes into a hula hoop necessarily immediately comes out the other end.

>presence of a portal alters known physics an infinite distance away from the portal
>the portal changed the cube's momentum
in what world?
the portal merely gives the cube more space to move and changes the direction of gravity after it flies through it.
The only possible force that could come from the portal are gravity or electromagnetism emanating from the other side, which now that I think about, could br signifcant for the portal games.
>in what world?
The world of the video game
