The one time I seriously studied for an exam (electrical engineering module as a material scientist) I was so thoroughly prepared that I breezed through all questions within an hour, barely having to think about the answers, then doublechecked everything and handed in the cleanest exam I ever wrote (nothing needed correcting or crossing out, every step laid out systematically and orderly etc.) with half the time left. I was the first to hand it in and the only one to get a perfect score. Being in the zone feels incredible.

this actually happened
your professor sounds based, as long as the deducted points didn't cause you to fail of course that'd be going too far

Are we really snacking on cloned aborted foetus cells?


If anything, knowing the unborn were sacrificed for my libation would make me thirstier, but I'd like to know

A bit of a hyperbole. Yeah, contamination is notorious in some cell lines, and all the pop-sci articles love to gush over it, but I know of no lab personally that has run into the issue. It would be pretty incredibly to have that be an issue (we've never used HeLa cells in our hoods/lab at all and I've sequenced a lot of HEK cells recently). I'm far more concerned about mycoplasma than rogue hela cells.

it's moral to use the aborted fetus cells because you can only use them through their inherent "desire" to multiply
they want this, if they didn't they would commit suicide
they will live on when we are dead

Why can some people learn calculus quickly, some people can learn it with practice, some people can learn it with practice and tutoring, and others always struggle?
This isn’t a question about calculus or IQ. This is a question about the human brain.
dunno that's a tough one
I get the concepts real fuckinf quick, but applying them to problems is where I need to practice, like anything. I can understand what a house looks like during construction, but I cannot build one without seeing what works and what doesn’t. This is true for all people.
Because some of us practice it in earlier stages of our lives without being aware of it.

>nootropics for anxiety
this, nootropics are hot garbage real stims are the only thing that actually does anything
if it's not addictive that means it doesn't work
vit D. ask your physician to get bloodwork done just say you're abnormally tired if you need a reason
>source = reddit survey
Into the trash it goes.
so basically
better nootropic = more anxiety
It's cute that they're trying to be scientific though.

how can i make the smallest,most basic,single call phone possible?
I think it'd be too hard. You have to rely on society. Can't do this yourself

How small do you want to go? The most basic "phone" is a pair of electrical contacts that send beeps into the network, aka a telegraph. This can be be done on a microscopic scale.

Now if you mean a phone as in a consumer device that someone would actually use with their hands, all you need is a numpad, a speaker, a microphone and maybe a 20-digit display for numbers.
not from scratch of course
thanks for the link,i meant a phone you can use with your hands
Do you mean a phone that interfaces with existing systems, or your own?

I don't see a universe in which timeline 1 is realized. As long as he isn't flooding /sci/ with his "math" idc what he does in LaTeX

No, I teach because it's hilarious.

Hello anon,
I heard you have been trying to study some complicated books on your own for a while but you have no self discipline.
Mabye we should set up a group and make some schema to study a book together?
What do you think.
I have been thinking about studying abstract algebra and category theory.
Care to join? Maybe on discord?

Bump for interest
OP, make the discord.
I created a group!
I hope someone still sees this
What about using Lang's Algebra book, I started reading it just yesterday and it's not as difficult as people seem to argue. Apparently it's tougher than Aluffi's.. But I understand that Aluffi uses Category Theory and who knows if Lang does..

The "let it mostly be, but sometimes interfere" liberalism. There is some merit to some of Marx theories however history has profoundly vindicated those who wanted to reform capitalism instead of those who wanted to abolish it.
