I also dont know it but my guess is you need it as blood substitute. Kidney failure. Yeah :D

You mix it with shit so you’re not injecting pure water in as it causes your blood cells to fucking pop we use it in gene therapy

Is Spontaneous Combustion just a bad mix of something like glycerin and potassium in the human body?

More than likely these poor souls are given glycerin as a medicine and eat a banana and they fucking ignite from the inside and die horrible chemically burned deaths due to medical negligence.

wick effect
why not start with the reactions to give credence to reported cases? if it's chemically possible, doesn't that make it practically more feasible?
it sounds like a fun exercise anyway
This is the right answer. Die of a heart attack while smoking, clothes catch fire and body fat burns down like a candle.

I faked having ADD by smoking pot and an adult and used the adderral to have multi-day long jack off sessions.
Very easy
I wish it was so easy in Europe. I practically begged for meds when I was genuinely mentally sick, but they were always extremely reluctance. Maybe it was just my councillor or whatever.

In a way it was probably for the best, because I just decided to leave therapy and tough it out cold turkey. Which still sucks, but at least I'm not doped out of my mind I suppose.

>NASA mulls possible mission to Venus after recent discovery of possible life

>WASHINGTON (Reuters) - NASA is considering approving by next April up to two planetary science missions from four proposals under review, including one to Venus that scientists involved in the project said could help determine whether or not that planet harbors life.

>The U.S. space agency in February shortlisted four proposed missions that are now being reviewed by a NASA panel, two of which would involve robotic probes to Venus. One of those, called DAVINCI+, would send a probe into the Venusian atmosphere.

>“Davinci is the logical one to choose if you’re motivated in part by wanting to follow this up - because the way to follow this up is to actually go there and see what’s going on in the atmosphere,” David Grinspoon, an astrobiologist working on the DAVINCI+ proposal, told Reuters on Tuesday.

>In light of Monday’s findings, NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said that is “time to prioritize Venus.”

We're gonna go there and bring back Venusian life

Russian scientist Ksanfomaliti Leonid Vasil'evich knew that there's some life on Venus, it's sad that he died in 2019 :(
>It flies in the geyser then back out.
How is that ethical? What if there's life there? Why is NASA alled to destroy what we barely understand?
>Not even religion will be affected.
Most religions accept that God could have created life on other planets, including Roman Catholicism and Islam. Mormons have it as part of their teachings. Discovery of alien life would only bother protestants.
>Discovery of alien life would only bother protestants.

I don't even believe that. I've never heard of earth and its life being unique in the canon. I guess you could say aliens would make earth less special, but that wouldn't really start to hit until intelligent life was contacted. And evolution did far more damage to the idea that man is special and religion chugs on.
>closer to Earth on average
did you know that Mercury is the clostest planet to Earth on average?
did you also know that Mercury is the hardest planet to get to, even harder than Pluto or Saturn?
please learn more about orbital mechanics before talking about space

I do home organic chemistry as a hobby. I have a ton of glassware. I wouldn't let fear of "getting on a list" take over my life. if you let them rob you of doing things you enjoy, then they win. my hobby is so important to me that it might have saved me from suicide, i don't consider life worth living without it anyway.

You're not getting in trouble if there's no drug residue on the glassware. My biggest concern would be civil asset forfeiture.

Amazon has a lot of glassware, even with prime shipping. www.laboyglass.com is good but long shipping times from china.
I heard the chinese stuff of course is lower quality. I read the story about some guys glassware exploding and shredding his hand because of it
yeah, didn't mean to make it seem like they were getting in actual trouble, it was more just feds raiding and seizing glassware to investigate

Because that would be unfalsifiable, so it's a pointless idea. Last Thursdayism is a good example of this kind of argument.
Before the big bang, maybe.

yes, just as the constants in mercury are different than the constants working with water. When the magnetic fields compress and contract the aether many "constants" change

with as much math as possible
Then why do abstracts use words that nobody uses in everyday language
Because it's scientific

Those are CS books i have found after doing research to start learning, as a beginner with no background it seems that the best one to start is "Computer Science illuminated", to learn the principles, and also watch YT videos or internet sites to learn the basics, while also studying math, which i will do anyway at uni bc i'm starting physics.

I have very basic C++ knowledge from high school: variables types(int,float,char,string etc), for,while,do while, switch case, putting ";" at the end of lines, cin>>, cout<<.
But that's programming not really CS.

I can share the PDFs if ur interested.

Do you think this is good way to start?
8 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Learn modern C++11/17/20
Learn data structures and algorithm with C++
Learn proofs
Learn discrete "math"
Learn algorithms
Learn theory of computation
Can anyone share more books? More collections please?
Not OP. How will math come into play in CS?

There are 3 dimensions + time.

Everything else is pseudoscience that came about as a result of string theory pseuds trying VERY hard to force their shit hypothesis into the mainstream.
Actually there are 4 + time

There's treatment and studies: but has it been found that cancer cells actually support other cancer cells at the expense of the body?
Rather than just the 'rapid spread' (rather than metamorphosis being misidentified) - do cancer cells actually support other cancer cells?
cancer cells are just rogue cells that parasitize the host, they aren't "broken"
Which kind of rogue and which kind of host?

A caterpillar can, a human can't? Have we been lied to and suppressed?

how fucking stupid is this? What can I do with all these numbers? Are you just asking for a fucking auto-calculator? You can just put those things in excel and fucking do whatever you need to them and solve it in "I'm not a lazy fuck" time. Which is better than polynomial.
it's an easy problem for the laymen to understand, but so far can't be solved with a polynomial time algo
The cost of computation only increases by a bounded limit of sqrt(2) no matter what you want to put in the cycle, so why do I care? There is already a minimal computational cost proof that any extra comparison set added to an existing algorithm simply increases the total computation size of sqrt(2)*n.

sqrt(2)*n - 1 = 0
sqrt(2)*n = 1
n = 1/sqrt(2)

It is the 'n' part is essentially am I priority signal (1) or optimal build pivot point signal (sqrt(2))

Think of it like computational tracing. The only worthwhile or meaningful data that can be outputted by a program is essentially with a forward-looking memory pointer that essentially goes:

1. Have a bag and a list of things
2. Grab thing from list and check if thing can fit in bag
3. Check if could I grab one more of the same thing without going over capacity and if not create a shadow copy of the summation/inventory so far that is less that thing to also include as 'must check after priority thread terminates'
4. Add the thing if there is anything to add
5. Rank the leading three bags and throw away other bags as insufficient to requirement for analytical purposes
6. Repeat this process for however N-many shadow bags exist (turning this into a constant size check limited by remaining potential candidates)

What am I missing, if anything?
