How do people tell one star constellation from the other? They all look the same to me.

Make your own paper astrolabe and go outside at night to learn the constellations. Children can do it.
If you are on the northern hemisphere, start with Stella Polaris, next take all the circumpolar stars before taking the rest. The circumpolar stars are useful as directors for the rest.
I have had to navigate by the stars a few times, handy when other means fail.

thousands, in the scale of a country. from the perspective of a farmer, all you have to do is to install app on your phone, and it tells you when you should spray. that's all to it. the infrastructure is paid and run by public, and it's already being built. the problems are with logistics, there is no fixed schedule, you can't lend machinery in advance, and people may be weary of putting their whole crop on risk, because some ai, but then again, conservatively, the cost of pesticides drops to 1/8th.
>>
The commercial honey bee can go fuck itself, most should die off because without humans, they wouldn't be so dominant. It's not an efficient pollinator and drives out native pollinators. Best thing you can do is not buy honey or produce that requires heavy exploitation of bees. You don't want to increase the bee population, you want to lower it and let the native pollinators do their job by not farming monocrop style like a fucking retard from 200 years ago (monocrop is great for self-pollinators or wind-pollinators).

And that's not even taking culture, environment, time and society into account.

Hi.
I need an opinion on my song. It is about finding a starting point to go forward with oneself, and about making a life philosophy out of science.

Just to clarify:

Heisenberg's uncertainty principle - precludes: predicting the future and the existence of a so-called Laplece's demon
Triangulation - an approach in science to use different research methods to see a certain problem from different angles to maximize objectivity

Will post the rest in a next post.

ADHD isn't just about trouble focusing. It's also hyperfocusing, trouble thinking with loud sounds, unable to stay still, struggle with social queues, and a bunch of other stuff.

I don’t really think so at this point. I’m 28 and have been on meds for years at a time and off of them for years at a time, and every time regardless of any other health/habits the times not on meds have been a total loss.

>a symptom of an undisciplined mind?
I've had this since I was a baby. I was falling out of my crib because I couldn't stay trapped in there and my parents would find me wedged between the wall and the crib. In my toddler photos I was flailing around because I couldn't even sit still for a few seconds to have a photo. As a kid I was bouncing off the walls with restless energy. It was a problem in school as I never did homework and would be disruptive in class laughing and joking with my peers. I remember one time I got in trouble for talking during nap time and had to sit in a chair which I then urinated myself because I was scared to ask the teacher to go to the bathroom. So why can other kids sit still and remain quiet while I was rambunctious.

Then I took Adderall for the first time in adulthood. It was a night and day difference. My restless mind immediately became calm and I was able to sit in a chair calmly without my mind jumping all over the place and wanting to get up and move around. I remember thinking "Holy shit, this is what it feels like to be normal."

Why do organs end up a certain size? For example, two individuals of the same height and weight can have livers that vary widely in size.

It probably has to do with different types of growth hormone secretion during developing years and eventually tissues stop responding to these signals, but through what mechanism does the body know when to stop growing certain organs? Why doesn't the liver, for example, not just grow forever? What mechanism tells the body "yep, this organ is fully developed, make it stop growing"?

I've not found an answer to this question, is the answer actually known?

Nope. That's something they keep trying to tell guys who want a bigger dick to discourage them. A 30 year old man wants a bigger dick and it's impossible, but if a 30 year old woman bodybuilder takes steroids, her clit will blow-up to the size of a gumball. But the idea that testosterone could make a grown man's dick bigger the same way gets ridiculed because making men feel more masculine is verboten.

>Isn't penis growth tied to puberty
Yes, but the gain and subsequent loss of the penis' "growth function" is due the epigenome changing.

When the penis is growing during puberty the genes necessary for growth to take place or turned on. They are then turned off by epigenetic alterations such as methylations at genes' start sequence (such a methylation makes a gene effectively inactive).

Make the epigenome of the cells of the penis look like it did during puberty and you'll regain the ability to grow. Modifying the cells epigenome in this manner has already been done in mice and when you make induced pluripotent stem cells from adult cells.

A Saudi gives you a dump truck of money and asks you to design a city for his country, and make it comfortable to walk around in the street no matter the sun. What do you do?
This isn't a thread about muh global warming, it's a thread about the urban heat island effect.

I would build rows of towers running east-west, and have shiny aluminumized fabric running between the towers to shade the streets and lowrise buildings below.

I would have narrow, car-free streets so the towers can be only a few feet taller than the tops of the low rises, and use light rail to move people. Parking garages would be located outside the city instead of inside them, and people would rent stalls for their cars and use them when traveling outside the city.

All buildings would be statutorily limited to being low-rises, and have aluminumized awnings covering their rooves. For the air conditioners on the rooves, they will vent their heat collected from inside the low rise into a looping channel that is itself cooled by a large industrial ammonia air conditioner, and then vent that heat up a dedicated draft tower which doubles as a vent for any ammonia leaks.

The advantages of this are that you don't have to paint asphalt roads with high albedo treatments that cost $20k per lane-mile, you don't have to have "green rooves" you don't have to mandate cladding for buildings, you don't have to spend billions on freeway networks, and much more.

Is interstellar space travel even possible?

Within Earth's population there are many rational, empathetic, unbiased and highly talented people. They are however a vanishingly small minority compared to the rest of the population, who are fundamentally arrogant, stupid, narrow minded and selfish. It is imperative then to prevent these locusts exploring space since any living planets they encounter they will take for own, destroying the indigenous life in the process and squandering its resources before moving on to repeat their pillage across the entire galaxy.

Anyone who has observed human behavior knows this true.

“As you get older and approach retirement age, some body else picks up where you left off,” von Braun continued. “There were great men long before the first big rockets were built. And we are just building on their legacy. We want to make sure that this legacy can now be passed on to the next generation, the people who will really pick the fruits of the trees we have planted. I think the silliest part of the decay of the public interest in space is that…we planted this orchard, and we nourished it and fertilized it and watered it and gave it all our tender loving care. And now, the time comes when the fruits can be picked – and they don’t want to play the fruit pickers! That is where I think the young generation can make the greatest contribution – pick the fruits.”

He is great at navigating academia because his genius father helped him.

You see this constellation of genius father < dumb son (who live in his shadow) quite often. I think its because the father is so genius that he just gives up on finding a woman that can keep up. So he ends up marrying a dumb, hot housewife who is a good mother. But is left with stupid kids that he resents.

Its comical, I know at least 3 families in which thats true. I feel bad for the sons because they always keep trying to transcend their fathers but theyre just a little cockroach compared to him

Has anyone read any other studies with results on any testing to determine if the spike proteins from the mRNA vaccines can misfold and develop into prions?

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7988450/
>SARS-CoV-2 Spike S1 protein receptor binding domain (SARS-CoV-2 S1 RBD) binds to heparin and heparin binding proteins. Moreover, heparin binding accelerates the aggregation of the pathological amyloid proteins present in the brain

It would seem from my own intuition that given the nature of the mRNA vaccine mechanism misfolding spike proteins are not out of the question. Though study above seems to indicate that properly folded spikes behave in much the same way regardless.

your first error is:
>sees pajeet-paper
>doesnt close tab and actually takes it seriously

secondly, its totally IN SILICO. just computer simulations. A computer simulation done in india.

thrid, just because something can bind amyloid proteins theoretically, doesnt mean it will induce prion disease

fourth, you write that spike proteins itself folds weirdly and becomes the prions which those pajeets didnt even write. They said spike might by some crap simulation bind amyloids (amyloid being the misfolded protein in alzeihmers)

So this paper is very bad. This is why you dont read indian/chinese papers. nobody does
