What is the evolutionary advantage of having a small penis?

>>11710873
Less calories spent on a larger penis.

Gorillas for example have very small penises. It only needs to be big enough to impregnate the females in their harem. The calories they consume are spent on building muscle mass.

Indeed the average penis size of MENAs and Indians might be even smaller.

I'm majoring in computer science and just finished my freshman year. Could I become a CIA or FBI agent? Seems like a cool field but that's probably just me watching too many movies/ tv. Please don't try and crush my dreams too hard.

I've worked with some NSA people. None of them seemed above average. (Who knows if they were working where I was because they got fired, though, I guess.)

I don't really have any problem with the government or intelligence agencies for the most part (minus any indiscriminate warrantless dragnet surveillance by NSA), but just from what I figure, working in the private sector is generally more fun, less soul-crushing, and pays a lot higher. You have a lot more freedom in a lot of ways.

Also, if you really want to work such a job that badly, just make your own para-intelligence agency. Works for a lot of private companies, and a few non-profit owners like Assange, etc.

oh, you mean what we have now? I asked about this, but before what we've done would be to a publishable standard there are still extra features in the code base we'd have to implement, which according to my professor we would had only ever had time to do if I had started this project in a summer placement the year before, which as you'd imagine no one ever told me. I at least got it to the point myself where only a minor amount of work has to be done to get it to that standard, which I think he's gonna end up doing himself over the next year in between his main work.

Ah, I assumed you had enough for a (small) paper.

How do we know that this is a real picture of the black hole and not some shitty jpeg they whipped up to save face
What if something went wrong with the equipment or the code didn't do what they expected to do and they didn't want to seem like they wasted all that time and money?
How can we check the authenticity of the picture?
Or really any claim any scientist makes that we cant test ourselves?

I feel the same way OP. All science that has been more or less proven in textbooks with data is the only science I put any credence in. All of the theoretical stuff that is either not be proven or has limited data behind it I’m skeptical of. I also am skeptical of some of these images as chicanery would be an easy avenue.

I've been skeptical even about the existence of black holes lately. Our imperfect mathematics and equations broke down and did something crazy so that means there's a big scary out there in the dark that could consume us all.

This ugly little jewess contributed minimally to the code and to the project. Her name isn't even near the first few listed in the paper on arxiv. She's just another code monkey out of a group of a couple of hundred people, not even close to one of the top minds working on the project, but she gets undue credit and all of the media attention because Jew and because vagina. She is not an innovator. She's just another second-rate mind mooching off of the hard work and genius of her betters.

A set is an immutable array or association for a given set of operations on values.

It is more like the autistic version of mathematics so that you know what bucket you can or can't touch because it is currently in use.

Memory functions really are just carry, hold, and shift value.

Why are there fundamental underivable constants in physics but not in pure mathematics?
29 replies omitted. Click here to view.

it's actually a relatively interesting question. I believe the fact that we cannot derive them from first principles, and that experiment is needed for many of these constants, implies that our theories are incomplete.
why can we calculate pi without needing to measure anything, but not the electron mass?
