I can't do code or math, but I remember this video from Matt Parker on the subject:

"Why is there no equation for the perimeter of an ellipseā€½"
What an interesting choice of a word. Come dance with me 22th of this month. I'm waiting~

I'd say "that's a date", but we are going to enjoy the full moon, so I guess "that's a nite" then!
Draw a circle, use a transformation to get an ellipse, simple as.

it possible to have a wave on higgs field?
if possible how it feels to and can be detected?
higgs field formulas unsolvable this way
we need modelling on computers, same way used for proton mass modeling
if higgs field have low delta from zero energy how it can be detected?
I just learned how to use Feynman rules to evaluate the dyson series on QED. Higgs field is too advanced for me. Maybe next year.
best way is to start learning from higgs field formulas

any study where the raw unmodified data is not made publicly available should be immediately dismissed upon sight. therefore all medical research by its very nature being confidential cannot be trusted as the evidence is never presented in a complete form.

Will we ever be able to recreate human beings based on their DNA?

I don't see why not. If the person has their DNA sequenced when they're alive, it makes sense that we'd be able to recreate that DNA to clone them at a later date.

Regular weed smoking in adolescence causes irreversible brain damage by thinning the prefrontal cortex:

I understand how we are able to perceive sounds coming from the left or the right - it a matter of the delay between our left ear and our right ear. But how are we able to send that a sound is coming from behind us?
12 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Monkeys that happened to have slightly different ears that made it easy to discern if a sound came from the front or the back, had an easier time preventing predator attacks.
Said monkeys didn't die as much, which meant they could spread their genes a lot more.
Repeat ad infinitum and there you go, evolution.

Evolution is nothing more than DNA defects that turn out to be useful and genetic variety
getting killed because you couldn't tell the rustling sound behind you was a predator and not the leaves you've been rustling up in the trees is pretty strong selective pressure dipshit

I think it is that our ears change the qualia of the sound we hear.
Forward sound and Backward sound have different base/treble aspects due to how the sound waves are focused onto the eardrum.
>it a matter of the delay between our left ear and our right ear
maybe... it is more likely the volume of the sound... the delay is a bit arbitrary

How can we see virtual images when they don't even exist?
11 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Because for your eyes they exist. And for everything affected by electromagnetism they are pretty much as good as the real thing.
It's actually used in antenna design. It can save you a lot of space
you can though. Photons are electromagnetic activity.
Who let the 8th graders in?
Easy. Try this simple experiment at home.
Step 1. Take one apple
Step 2. Hold this apple in front of your face and stare at it. Dont blink.

Congrats! You are now looking at 0.999... apple
they put 0.000...001 apples in every apple lacroix
Because your brain can't automatically process how light bends at certain very specific objects like lenses, your brain just assumes that what you are seeing is coming from an object tat is not obstructed in its path. The virtual image is what your eyes think it sees when it is looking at an object behind a lens, in the example you showed at least.

There must be a way to encode files into video files in a way that is relavely easy to decode later. I know youtube videos are compressed when uploaded but there still should be a way to bypass with the right algorithm (probably also uploading a high quality file)
Would youtube remove these weird private videos? Would decompression be too much of a hassle for it to make sense?

Do we have any info on their compression algo? Is it reversible? I'm guessing not but still interested if anyone knows.

My cat died and I buried him in a big ziplock plastic bag which was put into a box 2 feet in the ground.
Will the plastic bag degrade over time exposing his body to the earth around him, or will his body stay in the bag and not degrade?

There is nothing stopping you from having a nice ceremony after the burial.

what about killing the hair follicles, i was thinking:

dexamethasone 1%: there is a study showing that corticosteroids terminate vellus hairs and kills them
sodium cyanide (maybe 5-10%?): will help kill off the cells that form hair
dihydroergotamine (maybe 10%): will kill off blood supply to hair follicles, therefore either killing them or causing them to slow to a crawl
possibly some topoisomerase inhibitors like etoposide, they normally cause hair thinning and falling during chemotherapy, although it could be hard to get.
hyaluronic acid: will help both with possible necrosis due to the cyanide and to carry the compounds deeper into the skin
and for a carrier i was thinking something like DMSO or a water based carrier
what do you guys think? if i get enough money i will try compounding the final version of it at home and try it out on myself
Ehhh, kind of dangerous to be trying this on yourself.
Have someone ready to take you to the ER, and think up possible ways to avoid poisoning if anything goes wrong.
Please do try it on yourself, and post results of your skin dying and sloughing off
just get laser hair removal
experiment on animals before you experiment on yourself.

Daily reminder that the thinking White man does not neglect his philosophy studies in his journey through mathematics. "Philosophy was superseded by science" is a blatant nonsensical sentence spoken by true idiots who paradoxically subscribe to the Jewish deliriums of nihilism that they call post modernism that only make sense in the head of females and effeminate men.
