Decisive media jumping on every ounce of Racially charged news coverage, making us more polarized and more categorically against each other. The ball started rolling with Obama , inviting the BLM president to the Whitehouse, ostracizing the "out group" creating that us versus them group dynamic. Racial tensions are at a all time high , nearly 1960s level - it is creating more radical people on each side. The national media in search for the next "headline" story pushes this rhetoric that will destroy us all.

midwits are the least contrarian and courageous of the three groups, they reach a level of truth that is socially acceptable and validated within their peer group, that they are comfortable with and don't explore it any further. High IQ can explore "dangerous" ideas because socially people respect them due to their proven intelligence. low IQ/red necks are automatically labeled as dumb, racist, etc so have nothing to loose by voicing their opinions.

The field is (approximately) radially symmetric about the same axis through which the Earth rotates, meaning that anywhere on Earth the field will remain constant. Just because you move to a different "part" of the field doesn't mean anything if it has the same direction and magnitude. Take a look at the integral form of Faraday's law, the dot product part in particular.

Get me out of uni. I'm a senior engineering student, been grade levels ahead since I entered, summa GPA, three years laboratory experience, the whole bit. Since freshman year my plan was to get a PhD but after watching, for example, how the Harvard nanotechnology was chaired by a spy from CCP, I can't stand the idea. I know what I want to study, and I know where I can find it (MITOCW etc.). When I ask professors questions about physics, biology etc. from my own curiosity they don't know the answer and need me to explain the question. Why spend 6 years with these lying clowns who produce non-reproducible research when I can write my own thesis in theoretical biophysics while making bank as an engineer in the private sector?

hello anons,

if you were to enroll today, what would you study and why? could you also refer to books/authors for that study you'd choose?

I'm a retard that skipped school in his teens and I want to study something that is paid well but I don't know what. I need something that isn't repetitive since I can't deal with doing the same thing over and over again.

starship payload mass ratio

How is spacex going to have 100 people in the starship payload stage when the whole rocket is only 2 stages. The command module and lm on apollo were pretty fucking small, and were on the 3rd stage. the return was the size of a car, how can he re-enter the entire second stage with 100 people on it

it does not seem like it could make orbit due to it's crazy mass fraction

Science is every statement justified inductively. The problem of induction demonstrates that science is fallacious, and that you can't justify a statement being true with induction. I believe that since science happens to give us predictions that come true most of the time, we just keep believing in it.
>>
>>13425839
>>13426127
The scientific process is the order of events
scientists go through when they investigate any
phenomena. First, they inquire. Then, they
gather relevant knowledge and data on it to
make a hypothesis of what happens. Then,
some tests. Finally, results in the positive or
negative of the hypothesis and relaying them.

Depending on the subject, or phenomena,
the actual structure of this process can vary. Scientists should be able to alter the structure
of how they can best investigate things in line
with the process, which means that the
process can be improved on and questioned
like the structure of their investigation of the
phenomena.

So, we have the scientific process which has
remained mostly the same since its founding

I'm 5'4" with size 15 feet and people have always made fun of me for my shoe size but recently I've been noticing more and more shoe stores are sticking it and the other day I actually met another guy below 6' with size 15s as well. I guess I'm just wondering is this becoming more common and why?

I was an absolute retard and now a twitter thread about me and my less than socially acceptable political views comes up when you google my name and school

This happened a few months ago and I've started dating a girl and started a new job with no problems since it happened. The only person I know who has seen it was a coworker who was trying to find my social media, but when he brought it up to me I was able to convince him it wasn't true immediately because I'm a pretty well-liked and normal person irl

Although there has been no effect on my life because of it yet, I'm extremely worried about getting accepted into a PhD program like I've planned. I have a 3.9 GPA in a STEM major so I'm pretty sure I would be able to normally, but now I'm freaking out about my life maybe being over

Honestly just looking for reassurance that I can still get a PhD... or tell me that I need to change my name, get facial reconstructive surgery, and move to South America. Pls don't just tell me how retarded I am (I'm well aware)

STEM majors are some of the pickiest eaters I've ever met. Maybe it's the autism, or maybe it's the tendency to over-analyze everything. But they always seem really reluctant to try new or unusual foods. With the high number of stem majors here I figured it was a good place to test my hypothesis. Are you a picky eater /sci/?

you can't decide from skull morphology alone, you need to know brain volume and brain proportions. a brow ridge can make a head look a lot more slanted than it is.
from personal experience people with slanted, straight foreheads can be retarded or smart but people with protruding foreheads (tr is farther than g) are always mentally challenged

Embryo selection for IQ is already happening underground. I personally know an elite who recently paid for this process. Here is what will happen. Most people will succeed in banning embryo selection, elites will simply evade the bans, and after a few generations the IQ gap between elites and nonelites will be so significant that your chances of joining the elite world as a non-embryo-selected person will be literally zero. The power differential will be greater than any in history. All because people moronically pushed to ban embryo selection without realizing how easy it is to evade laws if you have money.

Yes, they are not human, they are psychopaths:

While Gordon Freeman was searching Xen for the Nihilanth, the creature could be heard transmitting various telepathic messages to him, including "You are man... he is not man... for you he waits, for you...". This seems to indicate that the Nihilanth was quite aware of the G-Man and forebodes Gordon's eventual "employment" by him, almost ironically "warning" Freeman. This also indicates that the Nihilanth either also sees the G-Man in a human form or at least understands he would take this form when appearing to Gordon.

But this may have side effects that won't be tracked down the same way everything else the idiots in health care do.

Brainlet here. At first i didnt understand how the vaccine was finished so drastically fast without skipping traditional steps. I looked at how the process was different this time around and it makes sense. They basically preempted lag time by accelarating the next process while the stage before it is still taking place, but each unique and consecutive stage is looking for its specific dataset. If a previous stage fails while a latter stage is already in process, its scrapped and done with regardless. None of the safety measures were skipped, just done simultaneously while also already being manufactured, ready to go if they were verfied as safe and to approved, already ready for distribution.

How can you know that? Most people against getting this injection are immunized against many other diseases because there was enough testing for those.
