if the universe is infinite that means anything that can happen must happen, thus the universe should not be as that is a possibility but because it is, that means the universe is finite.

>if the universe is infinite that means anything that can happen must happen,
No
>thus the universe should not be as that is a possibility
Even granting your premise, still no. Just because you can use words to say something does not mean it is metaphysically possible, and "the universe is infinite so everything that is possible will happen" if true wouldn't even imply every metaphysical possibility exists, merely that every physical possibility exists.
>but because it is, that means the universe is finite.
No.
>>
There is no proof the universe is infinite. It's only a theory based on an observation
>>
What a retarded misconception. Anything that „can happen” (meaning, within the range of possibility that the laws of physics allow) WILL happen. I.e. there is a Wuthering Heights world somewhere out there, BUT there is NO Harry Potter world anywhere out there. And there is similary NO world where there is NO world anywhere out there. Infinity is still tenable.

By how large a factor does water filtration cool down gas? Does it really transfer alot of heat to the water? Does the heat add more steam?

I don't know if the dabs I take are burning my throat or if the irritation/coughing has more to do with the THC texture
>>
hello

>>11706651
>why can't my body accept this thick cloud of CO2 instead of nitrogen and oxygen.
It's literally the condensing into your lungs, nothing is gonna take the edge off that unless you quit completely. Not even vaping works.
>>
>>11706651
put some crushed ice in the water and see if its better
>>
>>11707140
It's wax and vapor
>>11707146
I crush ice into a thermos, and use the thermos as a shaker before pouring the cold water into the bong
It feels cold, and the area and air seems chilled, so I'm certain the water does something, but when I heat up the wax and inhale, it feels normal until a while into inhaling, and then exhaling causes the irritation that leads to coughing.

I'm just wondering since this is vaping, if the irritation really was the heat all along, as in burning my throat, or if it's the THC "texture" and cannabinoids, which the wax is high in. I'd like to know how much a factor water filtration plays in reducing the heat, or if it has been a just another vehicle for smokers/cope and there's no temp difference

There has been one point where I did inhale and did not feel like there was any burning sensation, and that involved a dual chamber bubbler, so that merits looking into as well, maybe the gas isnt exposed as much the first transfer and needs a secondary exchange to fix the leaks from the first exchange
>>
>>11706651
The cooling factor depends on water temperature, contact time and surface area. The easiest way to positively influence all of these factors is with crushed ice in the ice chamber.

Say there's some function, f(n), that is the multiplicative inverse of n*0. Thus, [math]\frac{f(n)}{0} = n[/math].
We know by inspection f(n) is not real.
And to stay consistent with existing models, we know n*0 has a real part 0.

Therefore, you could say [math]n*0 = 0+f(n)[/math].
But when we try to divide through by zero, we get:

[math]\frac{n*0}{0} = \frac{0}{0} + \frac{f(n)}{0} = 1 + n[/math]

Does it make more sense to say

[math]\frac{n*0}{0} = \frac{0}{0} + \frac{f(n)}{0} = 0 + n[/math], where [math] \frac{0}{0}=0[/math]

Or rather

[math]\frac{n*0}{0} = \frac{0}{0}+ \frac{f(n-1)}{0} = 1 + (n-1)[/math], where [math]\frac{0}{0}=1[/math]?

if n*0 gives a defined f(n), and n/0 gives a defined 1/f(n), then 0/0 is perfectly well defined.

can someone explain for what purpose some people evolved to find small tits attractive?
big tits are attractive because they signal the female is fertile and will be able to feed your children efficiently
so what is the evolutionary purpose of getting turned on by small tits?

In our society women are wearing bras, so the sagging isn't that much of a problem, they'll appear even bigger and rounder than they're actually are due to the support from the bra.
So for many people it would be a big plus.
Exremly big breasts, bigger than a D or E cups would be an extreme disadvantage if the woman didn't wear clothes, and would also sag extremly fast and lose their attractiveness.
This wouldn't be a problem for very young women, but woman with a more reasonable breast size like B or C would probably stay attractive longer and have more children over the course of their life.

I also think that it is true today that women woht a slimmer, more atheltic physique retain their beauty much longer than curvier women.
There are slim, firm breasted 50 year old women with a somewhat attractive figure by taditional standards (Marisa Tomei for example) while women of the curvy bombshell type may be more attractive in their youth but already start to sag and flab when they're 30 (Katy Perry for example).
>>
>>11705056
Small breasts imply youthfullness and thus strong fertility, coupled with higher levels of test for extra horniness/fert, big breasts imply she's done being fertile, now is just feeding and looking after the young.
Big breasts are comfort, imply someone you've been with for a while and have had crazy sex sessions with but since you're both getting old it's time to slow down, small breasts imply she's just starting to learn what a dick is and will be willing to try out anything with it.
Big tits are for men who are tired of sex.
>>
>>11707060
Yes. Attraction to big breasts is a fetish mostly pushed by fat women.
Things men say to women:
Lose weight, you're too fat
Things men don't say to women:
Get bigger tits, you're too flat
>>
>>11707064
Fat. Fatter women have bigger tits.
It's basically just that
>>
The fatter the woman the small her breasts look.

The thinner she looks the bigger the breast looks.

it's highschool level, you only need to practice a bit before hand because o the time constraints

also, arithmetics =/= math

Why do mathematicians allow themselves to magically invent things like complex numbers to get around finding the square root of a negative number which is supposed to be impossible, but when you try to invent a new number to get around division by zero they get all cunty?

1/0 is infinite. Approach division as a form of repeated subtraction and you will know this to be true.

If you are going to ascribe those hundreds of millions of deaths to communism as a concept than it would only be intellectually honest to ascribe every death by preventable starvation or otherwise due to financial disparity of a person living in a capitalist country to capitalism as a concept, in which case the numbers are clearly not in the favor of the capitalists.

Buy/pirate the book you've shown or this. Join a math help discord and go through the chapters step by step asking for help when you need it. It might seem like you are retarded and you likely are but at least you are better than most retards because you want to remedy it.
