These makes sense

they will take the gubberment bux if they agree to let them mark covid as the cause of death on their certificates.

It's vitamin D deficiency. About 42% of the US population is vitamin D deficient, 82% in black people, 70% in Hispanics80%. The evidence of the link between vitamin D deficiency and complications from covid19 is overwhelming, from several blinded peer reviewed studies.

>still not using superconducting transmission lines
>still dumping all of our electricity into line losses
bros wtf?
Imagine thinking we're setting up this world for the next generation of 10 billion+ people and not just getting things ready for a massive de-population event
Because currently it's less expensive, even with the power loss
Also most of the liquid nitrogen temperature superconductors (if not all) are ceramics, which makes them impractical for long wires and such.
cheaper to just burn more coal and gas, that being said if anyone's actually interested in transitioning to renewables, transcontinental HVDC lines will make everything so much easier. Bernie brought it up specifically, but all biden has mentioned is vague statements about rebuilding infrastructure so who knows.

What is the status of human enhancements? How far are we, how far will we be in a decade or three? Can we already genetically modify children to not develop genetically caused personality disorders like schizophrenia or psychopathy? How many genetic diseases can we cure, could we pre-natally prevent Down-Syndrom or could we already modify our children to have a decreased chance of ever developing cancer or alzheimer? How far are we from true augments?
A guy in china genetically modified embryos to be hiv resistant. A year later he disappeared. If genetic human augmentation is happening the public will never know about it most likely due to ethics.
CCR5, that is also related to intelligence.
There are none. Anti-senescence is incapable of getting us anywhere. Longevity escape velocity is meaningless, because the only reasonable way to measure it is as the total number of ways we can still die. Hint: It never decreases.

Once any part of your critical anatomy starts to go, you're officially dying. Augmentation is surrogate to giving someone else immortality if you don't achieve it yourself.
He didn't disappear, he was thrown in jail.

I must tell you that mathematicians are not scientists, they are artists.

Apart from the most elementary mathematics, like arithmetic or high school algebra, the symbols, formulas and words of mathematics have no meaning at all. The entire structure of pure mathematics is a monstrous swindle, simply a game, a reckless prank.
You may well ask:
>"Are there no renegades to reveal the truth?"
Yes, of course. But the facts are so incredible that no one takes them seriously. So the secret is in no danger.

If you are modelling vector AB, are there limitations on points A and B? I initially thought that perhaps they'd have to exist within the same set, but surely not right? If point A is purely imaginary and point B purely real for example, the only implication is that your direction vector will have a real and imaginary component right? I'm not sure if I'm misunderstanding something but that is my intuition yet I still feel like there is more to it. Surely there would be no implication if say point B had completely irrational components and point A had completely integer components if both are within the set of real numbers. But say that both are within respectively different sets, B is within the set of all R\Q and A within the set of all Z, surely you can still model vector AB, you would just be navigating each subset.
you need to better define what you're talking about. anyone reading this has to interpret what's going on in your head.
and also use the stupid question thread, this doesn't deserve its own thread
My retardation aside. Can you generate a vector between any two points? If not, what are the limitations that must be satisfied that will allow a vector to be generated.

All the other stuff is just me trying to explain specific cases I considered.
Have you seen the retard shit that get's its own threads, at least this is on topic. But yes, anon should use the question thread.
If something's 0 real 1 imaginary, it's still real, just on 0th coordinate. If something is not real, then you cannot use complex number for it's description. Complex number without real is 0xReal + imaginary. We don't even have a way to write a non real number.
>limitations that must be satisfied that will allow a vector to be generated.
If going by official policy vectors are expected to have certain properties like a specific number of dimensions and scalability.

If not you really only need definitions for the vector and operations on it, and that will either be equivalent to regular vectors in the combined set or else it will not reproduce regular vector behaviour.

I'm in my final year undergrad at an International Relations school (because I was a naive brainlet who wanted to change the world) and would like to get some help getting the fuck out and back into something quantitative. I code decently and did pretty well in high school (USAMO qualilfier) so I thought quant finance might be a good way out. I've started reading Hull's Options and some Springer finance stuff, while the intro chapters make sense I can never get past the first few chapters. Hell I can't even understand the math behind Monte Carlo methods after filling my brain up with intergovernmentalism theory and shit. Is this part of statistics or differential equations? What math courses/books do I need to take before reading this stuff?

hey guys, im an engineer and can i succed in this field in order just to earn money by reading all the study materials without having a degree? Or should i get a degree in this field so?
If you're an engineer you have almost 0 chances to get into finance. If you're a mathematician or a physicist your chances can go up to 100%. That's how it is. Only engineers I saw making it were a handful of Ivy+MIT EE-CS asians
Bullshit advice. Hull is trash and people never tell you the truth if they're not your friend already. Talk to finance people only if you can trust them. Anyone else will try to give you bad or vague advice and waste your time A LOT.
This is probably the best route. Doesn't matter what math you know when recruiters just look at your resume and throw it in the trash when they see international relations.
100% of TA is bullshit, anyone saying otherwise is just pure boomer cope

whyliving in a basementwith internet access is the true essence of freedom. The lifestyle is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of socialising, most of the incel memes will go over a typical basement dweller’s head. There’s also the internet’s nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation—his personal philosophy draws heavily from the human genetic code, for instance. TheBASEDfags understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of his mediocre Photoshop skills, to realize that he’s not just making hilarious memes—he says something deep aboutEVOLUTION. As a consequence people who dislike theBASEDlifestyle trulyAREidiots—of course they wouldn’t appreciate, for instance, the humour in theBASEDdragon’s existential catchphrase “Ayy lmao” which itself is a cryptic reference to the mating habits of the wildebeest. I’m smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as theBASEDpyre unfolds itself on their computer screens. What faggots… how I pity them. 😂 And yes, by the way, I DO have aBASEDtattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It’s for theLADIES’ eyes only—And even then they have to demonstrate that they’re within a 1,000,000 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Seriously get the fuck off my lawn, kid!

According to the pic related, nearly half of the antimony in our Universe comes from merging neutron stars.

If neutron stars are composed nearly entirely of neutrons and they are basically dead stars, how the fuck can they produce antimony in a merger event or in general? There are no elements in such star remnants. Only, well... neutrons.

Does that help?
Most nuclear physics comes from the mistaken calculation that fusion ends with iron, and is almost certainly incorrect.

Why? I thought it was more so that fusion in normal stars ended with iron. Not that iron is the last fusible element possible. Checked
There is a blatant mistake in calculating the energy where the fact that the next nuclide has one nucleon more is not taken into account. So in fact it doesn't end with iron, but at lead, because heavier elements are too unstable and decay back to lead, while releasing helium.

In fact I suspect the whole inverted stellar evolution was made up to account for the "impossible" elements, meaning that most of what we know about stars is wrong. But I haven't looked into it in detail, so I don't really know.
