/sci/ humor threadlet's go
>>12568846LmaoMan chemistry is fun
>independently sort variables
>>12568846Off to a good start.
>>12570519but the regressions look so nice
>>12568846hahah based chemists, I knew an chemical engineer and his uni stories was he and his mates blowing shit up on Uni and friends hurting themselves trying to blow shit up on campus
>>12571590gets me every time
>>12571806don't tell me they
>>12571590Love this one
>>12571590is it that woman who pretended she discovered integrals?
>>12571590>>12572844she didn't pretend, she legitimately came up with the idea on her own. She just didn't know anything about calculus because lmao nurse
Did you guys know that according to modern mathematics it's impossible in general to add small natural numbers, perform operations like 1+2=3 etc. In general with natural numbers all you can do is repeat the question. Everyone should mock modern mathematicians relentlessly for this.
>>12568846who has the meme about ted kaczynski being known for other works?
>>12573640nah this is bullshit
>>12573240Peak german humor
i can't find the richard feynman one
>>12573812is that a predatory journal?
>>12573791im guessing bio
>>12573791ah i found it
>>12573900is it shopped?
>>12573903No, that is what it really looked like.
>>12573240Und was soll daran bitte lustig sein, Reiner?
>>12573818Hardly. It is an ironical one.
>>12573974apocryphal means it's like a myth or wives' tale right?but you can make pseudoephedrine from meth can't you?i know this is the reverse synthesis of what people usually look for but i'm a chemist so people always ask me if i know how to make meth, so i say you throw pseudoephedrine in a catalytic converter do hydrogenate the double bond.
>>12573982Look at the names of the "authors" as a hint.And if you like funny names:https://www.parolacce.org/2014/10/05/the-true-story-of-stronzo-bestiale/
Much serious and informative but also much hilarity:https://blogs.sciencemag.org/pipeline/Especially his articles on explosive matter are worth a read.

>>12574007>We have found
>>12574011He really overhyped Azidoazide azide though. His post about it spread all over the net as though it's this crazy sensitive explosive that'll blow you up if you look at it wrong.Then a shitposting Aussie chemist youtuber made some in his shed and said it was alright but not great.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Sz4d7RQB6Y
>>12575657Please be real
>>12575904why is the person's name censored
>>12576257based primitive life enjoyer
>>12573159Never seen this one, I'm saving it. As a frequent /lit/ user this made me chuckle.
>>12576781Who knows, perhaps the two expressions are equal.
>>12572844>>12572915for a good moment I was extremely confused because I couldn't believe it was that fucking stupid and though i was missing something
>>12571802this is /his/ humor, but thanks for posting it nonetheless
>>12577087It's /med/ humor too.
>>12571590Reminds me of college back a decade or so ago:>Roommate is FUCKING HYPED>Working on something on his own >We're both undergrads in material science>"Bro I've got something that could change the world, think if we could get off of gasoline and use WATER for energy">We smoked a ton of weed so I never really expected much, even though he was a smart guy>Weeks later I come to find him broken down, almost in tears>Turns out he came up with the idea for basically a steam engine kek.
>>12571590>>12577127You guys should look up the "discovery" of the Hardy Weinberg equation
Anyone have the students and their professor trying to solve an old proof, but they can't so the professor goes to find the initial publication and it's his own from decades ago and he says to refer to the proof? kek that got me good.
>>12577127>first year undergrad delusions of grandeur
>>12573159I fucking love it
>>12576781>>12576787It looks like a solution to a partial differential equation with separation of variables. these are what the solutions usually look like. probably heat equation or wave equation.
Anyone remember the guy who turned off the freezer? I haven't heard from him since, did the postgrads murder him?
>>12576029lmao and I can't get a job as a data scientist when retards like this litter the field
>>12576029I feel sick.
>>12577822Do a pfizer>yes he and 150 other people died the second the plunger was pressed but in a universe every non zero probability will happen by chance so this is nothing to see.
>>12576029ehh i dont understand that
>>12578513He simply had a list of paired datapoints, something like (student_IQ; student_grade). He wants to find out if IQ correlates with grades, but first he makes a new paired dataset, ordering the values independently, i.e lowest IQ with the lowest grade.No shit you get nice correlations this way and no shit this destroys the data. The guy is a retard for even asking this question.
When you realize science is just glorified twitter arguments
>>12571590>>12577127In primary school and high school I came up with heaps of "new" concepts only to later be taught them.Nowadays I just ask someone how to do something before even trying it myself because 10/10 times there's already an established method I just didn't know about.
>>12578900Lol me tooI remember feeling like my ideas were stolen when I first heard about them but then I find out the person who discovered it was alive 200+ years ago
>>12574271I dig it
>>12578924>>12578900it's how you know you're on the right track, imo
>>12577491>>12576781The actual answer is for a Fourier Transform application, so just some arbitrary non-discrete wave function
>>12571590How did this even get through reviewers?
>>12579640Because it was reviewed by their peers
>>12578513maybe this illustrates it a bit
>>12580346there isn't even anything to argue about (G), but you can say that about many bait threads
>>12580359oh ok I see, of course there
>>12580178These books are actually good though.
>>12580377well that's what the meme is saying
>>12580178Are these good intros?
>>12580018isnt peer-review anonymous tho?
>>12578900>>12578924"A couple months in the lab can frequently save a couple of hours in the library"
>>12580477Not as intros to these subjects (e.g. as an undergrad) because they're quite advanced. More useful to a grad student, IMO.More to the point, I think each of these subjects has a better specific textbook, but it's pretty amazing as an all-in-one course.My advice on textbook is that you should take the time to find a book (or other resource) that works for you. Many times I have had epiphanies on difficult topics just by reading a new textbook and seeing the same idea presented in a slightly different way.
>>12580548In this sense the volume on QM is quite good if you can get past the notation. It offers insights not found in other QM texts. It's worth the effort.
>>12580548feels badi dont understand that meme
>>12580548>let me talk about isomorphism and not derive anything
>>12575993this is an anonymous board
>>12576787Possibly at some value of x,t but pic was obviously Fourier's burnout
>>12580903Nevermind, that expression has normalized coeff
>>12577127best one in the thread, holy fuck i require assistance
>>12573314>not posting the entire thingburgerposting needs to be done correctly.
>>12580359the path to g is blocked
>>12581626no you retard! its g for sure
>>12571590A friend of mine, after studying mechanical engineering, did some biomechanics. Apparently they couldn't stop reinventing the most basic shit like Hooke's law
>>12571588or making popper and sniffing it in the lab
>>12571590lmao did she just invent warm water (numerical integration)? kek
>>12581669B-but if you change the curve a bit on the right, the material behavior changes! Like, completely! Whoa!
>>12573303>better known for other work

>>12580346 4chan in a nutshell
>>12571554what a croc of shit. these meme papers are stupid as fuck. no information for the reader whatsoever nor anything to back up the assertion. why 'probably not', and not 'almost certainly'. this isnt a paper and whoever published this is a cretin.
>>12582629it's just the abstract bro
>>12580545the alternative is knowing libraries worth of book shit by heart, but faltering at even the simplest lab procedure (or being scared of your reagents)
>>12571590>Cited by 223 documentsHoly shit kek
>>12580359but H is lower so H will fill up first
>>12576029One of my all time favorites
>>12576781This is fairly insane to look at when you don't understand what is going on but Fourier transforms are more or less just cookie cutter identities with some algebra and calculus mixed in there
>>12584064>the alternative is knowing libraries worth of book shit by heartJoking?When I did my PhD we were told to spend one day a week in the library to catch up with all new publications. You still had to go the next week too.
>>12571590>>12578900Reminds me of how I was a giga retard and instead of memorizing math formulas and using them to solve problems, I would spend hours attempting to solve math problems I didn't know how to solve only to find out I essentially came up with a bunch of well known math formulas.Or how I would send 5 hours thinking about >but what is X squared or 2 squared, what about a squared, on a two dimensional plane it's the length and width multiplied with each other which gives essentially a new plane of depth a height, so what would a three dimensional object like an apple squared be like, ah yes it's hard to imagine because I am trying to percieve essentially a dimension beyond my current existence, much like somebody o n a 2 plant trying to imagine 3d by thinking of how 3d objects would cast a shadow on 2d plane>same thing for square rootOr functions and well anything really. I would spend countless hours thinking about shit nobody cares about and was the retard that could never pass things I don't understand because just memorizing things was not a skill I possessed. My mind would resit any knowledge I don't intimately understand.
>>12584285>Or functions and well anything really. I would spend countless hours thinking about shit nobody cares about and was the retard that could never pass things I don't understand because just memorizing things was not a skill I possessed. My mind would resit any knowledge I don't intimately understand.This is actually a huge strength but you have to wield/harness it.
>>12584303>This is actually a huge strength but you have to wield/harness it.I don't think you understand how much of a downside that is in the modern education system where you leanr a bunch of shit really fast in a passing manner.Sure I am expert that can construct and deconstruct any knowledge I have assimilated, but nobody values that in terms of grades. Everything I learned I remember to this day and more importantly understand it and how to apply it to other things naturally. However I could never keep up with the pace of "okay we are going to superficially touch on this, and this and moving on this an that"I think it's because I think in terms of images, space relations and so on. So when ever I hear a mathematical or physics formula for me to even have hope of remembering it I have to deconstruct the words into physical relations to each other.Anyway other kids would pass with flying colors and not remember what they learned by next year, Id barely pass and remember everything I learned. Guess who got through life with flying colors an who the retard is.
>>12571590I refuse to believe this is real.

>>12587493You're talking about pop sci shit and mass media representation of social science shit, clickbait titles etc... People doing advanced researched about particles physics for instance don't have anything to do with what you're describing.Read some of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anyon and tell me this is a religion.

>>12587695If more people reported these /pol/tards in higher volumes they'd be gone before anyone would have the opportunity to.
>>12580346The answer is G. Seems too easy?
>>12584338>>12584285I can relate. My GF got a 1st (4.0 GPA) and I got a 2:1 (3.7 GPA), same degree (Computer Science). Meanwhile she is a retard who is really good at memorising stuff while I understand everything intuitively and didn't have enough time to get deep into every module (class) we studied.She has forgotten everything she learnt at university while I have retained nearly all of it.
>>12588064Retard was a bit harsh, she is very smart but on a single track. She performs algorithms she has learned exceptionally well, she can solve logical problems well but she is not the kind of person to think deeply and make cross contextual connections.
>>12571590reminds me of that time I was looking for a formula for the multiplication of two subsequent numberstook me the whole commuting time (2h) to discover(a-b)(a+b) = a^2 - b^2
>>12584285That's pretty cool, anon. I learned calculus during High school on my own and used to be completely marveled with trivial stuff like that.
>>12582438Regular numbers i think
>>12588064>>12588072you sound like someone who tries really hard to convince himself that he's smart and makes excuses when there's evidence to the contrary
>>12588120I'm not insecure about my intelligence I know my GF is smarter than me in many ways.
>>12581296I don't get it
>>12588040>The answer is G.No>Seems too easy?Yes.G is filled from D which *appears* to be filled from lower right pipe from C. In reality the pipe from C end in the wall of D, blocking any flow.Also hole to H is blocked.
>>12581383>>12588199"set" is a meaningless, undefined mathematical notion.What Rudin did in the pic is a bit more complicated version of "defining" an infinitesimal number as any number that's not bounded below by any rational number. The definition sounds plausible on the surface, which is why gullible undergrads fall for it, but actually all it does is move the ambiguity to the concept of a general number/set. If we cannot explain what is meant by a general number, and what is meant for it to be bounded below, then we don't actually have a proper theory of infinitesimals or in the case of Rudin real numbers.
>>12580346Answer is F.>C -> D is blocked, so no flow there>J slowly fills up until it hits the right pipe, goes into L>pipe to H is blocked, so it fills the pipe, then backs up into F, the lowest tank>F fills up fully before any of the others
>>12588064I mean she's obviously smarter than you if you were retarded enough to waste time remembering all the shit you learned in uni while simultaneously only getting 3.7 in an easy meme major like CS.
>>12588322>>12588322>retarded enough to waste time remembering all the shit you learned in uniWhy go to uni if you're not interested in the subject?>only getting 3.7 in an easy meme major like CSIf you go to a shit school where it's "soFtWare EnGineEring" in disguise. We did lots of pure and discreet mathematics, proofs etc.
>>12588393>lots of pure and discreet mathematics, proofs etcYou thought your girlfriend was the genius retard, but alas, it was you the entire time.
>>12588418Clearly I'm also too retarded to get this joke.
>>12587339Metal Leute (prounouncey Meddel loide) is something the german YouTuber/streamer/lolcow Rainer Winkler aka Drachenlord often says.
>>12588393> If you go to a shit school where it's "soFtWare EnGineEring" in disguise. We did lots of pure and discreet mathematics, proofs etc.And your girlfriend got all A's and you didn't. Assuming you aren't lying and you did mostly math, then your girlfriend memorizing stuff is completely irrelevant since the content can be learned within a week. You're just reaffirming that she is smarter.
>>12588504It's not the volume of stuff she memorised that got her the grades, it's her speed of recall and speed of execution of the intermediate steps, calculations and symbolic transformations that can be memorised. She is smarter than me in this regard.Usually what would happen when we would study together is she would finish the practice test first with 65% correct but be unable to answer the harder more conceptual questions at the end that required lateral thinking and deeper understanding of the topic. I would start with that question, answer it correctly then not finish the other questions in time ending up with 50% correct in total. Then I would explain to her how I answered that question and over time she gained that understanding and the ability to answer these type of questions.When it came to the final exams I didn't finish most of the tests. I was nearly always 1 or 2 questions (out of 10 - 15 questions) short when time was up. Meanwhile she had time to finish the whole test and check her answers because she does working out faster than me and she doesn't doubt her recall, she doesn't doubt her mental arithmetic, because its correct 90% of the time. Meanwhile I'm prone to make lots of small errors and always double check as I go.Do you see the difference? Processing speed vs lateral thinking and abstract reasoning. I learn the concepts quickly but struggle with the details, she nails the details every time but struggles with the concepts.She would prefer to learn something by memorising the steps and then learn the concepts later (her words) while I approach things the other way around.
>>12588471Ah, I see. Thanks. Didn't know he was still relevant or even known around here.
>>12576565Advanced doctorate in a proper scientific field (non-bio) never realised this before now. Holy fucking based anon.
>>12588595What a long COPE post.It's okay for your girlfriend to be more intelligent than you. This is okay, anon. No need for the major major tier cope.
>>12588064while grademonkeys are a waste of academic resources, coping is not the best way forward>>12588595also you're an idiot for starting at the back
>>12587960>butthurt humanities major who made this literally is comparing himself to a kindergartenernow this is humor
>>12588661If we are talking about raw intelligence, processing power, G then yes she is more intelligent than me I don't deny that. As I said she has better recall, better execution etc.
>>12588725>also you're an idiot for starting at the backDepends on the subject but I'm glad to have both methods available to me now.
>>12588737Point is she has not interest in the subject, no interest in ideas, no interest in analogy she just uses her intelligence to brute force the exams.She would make a good researcher for making incremental progress but she has no interest in producing original work. Many such cases.
>>12588661i would like to have a gf who is more intelligent than me desu
>>12588761I would like to have a gf.
>>12573791What the actual fuck, are you doing your PhD in stupid or what?
>>12588756Forreal just stop coping bro. It's just pathetic at this point. You got a gf smarter than you, be happy.
>>12588787She is just a grademonkey brah I'm not that happy about it. idk how to explain what it's like if you've never come across someone like that.In terms of Big 5 its like really low openness to experience, really high conscientiousness and really high IQ.
>>12588824This just reads like the worst cope. Be happy you have a teammate who is smarter than you so you can leverage your creativity to help them find cool things to work on.
>>12588932>>12588787>>12588661>>12588120Stop accusing the lad of coping, it's getting tiring.

>>12576565I love this one because I do a lot of back-of-the-envelope types of calculation in my head, using tricks that are usually more generalized but also more intuitively obvious than that.
>>12571806my phchem professor was hillarious. German guy, always had a dry sense of humor.>Today we will be talking about the haber-bosch process>So if you want to expand your empire...>you must be able to feed your people
>>12588595That's just sounds like you being bad at taking tests and found a way to rationalize it to yourself. Taking tests is a skill and your GF had the right idea.You never start with the long and hard questions, and you don't check your answers in detail as you go along, you save that for the end if you have time. This is exam time management 101 and it's related to how many exams are graded. The graders can only grade what is actually there, if you are missing an entire question they can't give you anything for that question. If you did some small error of recall or error in your arithmetic they can still give you some points if they see that you had the right idea but did some minor mistake.The very first thing we teach first year undergrads when tutoring for exams is to read all the questions and do the easy stuff first. You do the easy stuff as fast as possible, this leaves you time for the hard questions, and importantly, it let's you know how much time you have for the hard questions.
>>12576565(6/100)*50=(6/100)*(50/1)=(6*50)/(100)=(6/1)*(50/100)=6*(50/100)Well fuck me

>>12588393>We did lots of pure and discreet mathematics, proofs etc.Literally none of that shit is hard

>>12596028It's just not the same I mean how could anyone even consider paying those amounts when never even being on site or actually meeting people, I get that there could be reasons for why someone can't attend in person or the like but it just doesn't seem right.Why have schools at all if someone can just stream something from a basement somewhere while taking extreme amounts for it while people attending not even getting to use the facilities or meet otger people studying the same thing.Labs and libraries are a good argument though and yes you could argue that you could print out pdf:s I guess
