When will it end scientifically speaking? Summer 2021?

Everyone's already probably had it, children are immune, old people have less than 10 years left anyway, people with lung conditions like CF already have significantly shorter lifespans anyway, there is no point in wearing a mask. When there were plagues in 1348 and 1665, we fucking knew there were plagues. Germ theory wouldn't exist for more than another hundred years but we knew there was a fucking plague. If science was as developed as it was 400 years ago, we would just be thinking it was a bad flu season this year. If the chinese are practising making bioweapons they need to get their shit together because this one was ineffective as hell, but libs will always try to protect the minority even at the expense of the majority. If millenials thought they had a tough time with the economy, wait until gen z and gen alpha are trying to find jobs and buy houses, this will take years to correct, but nobody wants to say that the entire world overreacted to the threat of a "global pandemic"

lmaoing@ur pathetic existence

scientifically speaking, what has caused the quality of the posts on this board to get so bad? i mean honestly, there is not one actual science thread here now. what happened? the US election, COVID deniers, poltards getting anxious because there haven’t been any STEM marches lately? what?

or, alternative hypothesis: everyone with a brain got tired of this place?

What are you talking about?
The doctors are on the wire saying it’s fine to send the kids to school and we should open up.
It’s the politicians that are scare mongering a flu that heathly adults have a less than .@% chance of dying from
>/pol/ and the political situation in the US
...and Gresham's Law.
the fact that you use terms like poltard denotes you a redditor that needs to go the fuck back
This board has been brigaded by /pol/ for years, nothing new.

Why isn't there a physics general?

Because time is not a dimension but rather an entropic (information theoretical) property. Ever wonder why there are position operators x, y, z in QM but no time operator? Time doesn't exist on quantum level. Wave functions are effectively creating their own time loops by collapsing and decollapsing. The uncertainty principle proves this. All we need to do for local time travel is to find the right sequence of QM observables and measure them on macroscopic scale.
We're travelling through time right now

Can i consume 480mg of ginkgo bilobe per day for 4 days without having any side effects ? Also what is the timeframe that it should be used for studying 1-2-3 hours before the start ?

Lol, the real danger of blood-thinning is not getting a surface cut, but an internal lesion. Also, when you stop having a blood-thinning product your blood may clot very quickly, which can lead to other problems.
What is this stuff for. Google just told me memory aid. Kind of sounds like a meme
>Kind of sounds like a meme
It sort of is. I took ginkgo pills/tea for a year to help against brain fog and I honestly don't know if it worked or not. It gave me a couple of hours of relative mental clarity. Sort of like coffee but without the jitters.
get the stuff that has the siberian ginseng as well as the ginko. It takes about a week of one a day to get full benefits. But it definitely makes you sharper
It does work. I‘ve always had bad memory and a slow processing speed, and it’s helped me a bit. It’s not a significant advantage, but it is noticeable. I take the ginkgo extract along along with ginseng. I take it in the morning and in the afternoon. I’ve been doing it this way for several years. I recommend it if you don’t want to be on amphetamines or wakefulness nootropics but want to be sharper. Modafinil and Focalin work a lot better, but they cause manic mood swings for me so I just stick to the ginkgo and ginseng.

Should I major in computer science or computer engineering?

Imagine thinking $80k is good for CS PhD.
It's great for NC
Electrical Engineering
Computer Engineering. It's harder. You'll learn more. Get paid more with better job security. Possibilities to cross discipline in grad school. You'll be a highly valued member of society anon.
Well based on job options, computer engineering. If you actually want to do research related to AI or something then obviously CS. If you want to do robotics, computer engineering.

This is a picture of a coal power plant. You can see the long, skinny towers in the distance. Those are smoke stacks for coal burning furnaces.
Solar is a meme, useless in the northern hemisphere during the winter, especially without innovations in battery tech (which we won't have for 10 years and would cost billions on billions to implement per city)
And the panels are expensive, inefficient, and degrade over time
Wind is a meme, it's not windy all the time, and some area's are never windy enough lel
Hydro is maxed out, and not all cities are built near a fucking river valley where a damn could be build
Any tech required to make them functional is further off then fucking Fusion
Ah yes, much better to spend a projected 520 billion euros over 25 years just to replace the power output of the few nuclear reactors still in service. Meanwhile base-load power remains coal fueled.
>even France pays an higher energy cost than comparable European countries (if you count construction, maintenance etc.)
Source ?
You can repeat your nonsense as much as you like, but why? Investors spend money on wind and solar for years. Because it's cheap, fast to build and profitable. wake up

This. My firm (electronic market making) has been using "machine learning" for a decade or so. It is good at certain things ie. finding extremely subtle patterns in a sea of data but terrible for pretty much anything that requires lateral thinking, it's garbage.

Is ADHD real? i'm still gonna take amphetamines as living without them for two years has caused me to regress but like is it scientifically and neurologically a real disorder?
4 replies omitted. Click here to view.
while the Rx industry has been pushing for doctors to diagnose more based on less symptoms in the last decades.

getting diagnosed used to be something people used to avoid, preferred to keep private to avoid getting singled out

nowadays, it is used both for attention and justifications of ones own failures.

sure, there is a growing percentage of defective goods. however, many could vastly benefit from non pharmaceutical intervention. this issue as a whole is vastly overblown
just get some self control and stop staring at flashing lights on a screen all day
majority of people are incredibly docile and moldable, the environment is the issue because our brains are not wired for these things, mental illness will become more common as society 'progresses' and the overdiagnosing of mental disorders will continue when inevitably more people struggle to meet the system's requirements
Yes, people with ADHD have lower brain arousal in the part of their brain dealing with executive function. However it is absolutely over diagnosed from kids trying to get a script / dumb parents who think a kid being hyper is ADHD. If you actually have it you will be impacted in all areas of your life not just school.
New selection pressures for conscientiousness, docility, less sleep, probably lower cognitive ability in working class. The new human work drone.

How can I test if I'm a Boltzmann brain?
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
No need to test what is, by very definition true.
The human brain, just like the brain of any living creature, is literally a Boltzmann brain
"I" is just a letter.
13By is not really a large amount of time. In fact, brains appeared/evolved relatively quickly.
>muh thought experiment
pointless, just like the simulation hypothesis, it changes nothing lel
You can't. Literally any test one could come up with can be followed up with "But what if you're hallucinating harder than you thought?".
