This. Try to increase their metabolism by 1000%.
Yes, the shell is stuck to it
It would be extremely painful.

cats are from another dimension, like alien species, they behave in their own way regardless of human presence, yet they have genuine feels ...

cats are superior beings

People with legit high IQs, what's it like to be very smart?
169 replies and 19 images omitted. Click here to view.
None. It's just not how IQ is measured. Hint: The numbers they collect to later form an IQ measure are the actual measurements, and IQ is just a statistical measure of the population as a whole.
>I also have no friends and often wake up with little motivation.
That's your real problem, not an "also" after the fact. IQ doesn't correlate to quality of life.
>My great grandfather was offered a job as a chemistry professor at Stanford and refused it.
He probably wasn't a fan of eugenics.
I really don't feel like i'm really smart
very smart* Can't even write properly.

So, logicians, is this how you /peano/?
nice dubs
seems trivial
what does (=tr) mean?
I have a question regarding peano:
We say, "set theory and first order logic is the foundation of math". But peano isn't formalizable in FO logic. So shouldn't we say that "set theory and second order logic are the foundations of math"?
Transitivity of equality
>maybe for you
>using set theory to shitpost subtly

Excellent. I am officially glad I woke up this morning.
>peano isn't formalizable in FO logic
Why so?

Why have you looked at scatporn if you weren't into it in the first place?
I was mildly into it, and I was searching for greater stimulation. Now I need such intense stimulus just to get slightly aroused, I'm wondering if I'm permanently fucked.

Why is Venus much hotter than Mercury even though Mercury is closest to the Sun?
Could it be that Venus's thick C02 atmosphere retains heat?
Kind of like C02 produced from burning oil retains heat here on Earth?
23 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
venus is tidally locked to the sun. one side of it is constantly facing the sun and does not have what we would call on earth "nighttime". that side of venus is crazy hot on the side that is locked on the sun.

the other side is freezing cold.
It proves you know nothing about chemistry.

It also kinda proves you're underage because normal people learn this when they are around 15 years old (13 here in the Netherlands)
I was comparing how venus uses greenhouse gases to keep itself extremely hot. Kind of like how we are warming the planet up by burning CO2
All things being equal?
put co2 on mars
it'll become comfy

Depends. Right now I work the occasional 12 to 12 on a school day so sometimes I get no sleep. All my classes are after 2pm so I always sleep until I wake up. I naturally sleep like, 11-13 hours.

Senior math/premed taking 6 credit hours rn.
oh shit dude, you sleep until you wake up?! how profound
>Me, being insomniac
reading people that can sleep for a lot of time like 6+ hours really make me sad
From 03:00 until 13:00 usually, unless there was something in the morning I absolutely couldn't miss

You could make a computer simulation where a simulated person measures time using a simulated atomic clock. Your simulation works just as well whether you actually use "time" (your computer's clock) to pace the simulation or just simulate all events relative to each other (line by line, as fast as your CPU can process them, no actual clock used).

This makes me think that real world actually works like that. Maybe there's no mystical 4th dimension that we call time and things just happen relative to each other. A long line of causes and effects, kinda like lines of computer code.

This would resolve things like "time's arrow", all those potential time travel paradoxes, etc.

It would also make the universe simpler. Removes an extra component that we cannot observe anyway. It also opens up new lines of investigation into stuff like "time dilation" (what is it, if there's no time? Maybe more "lines of code", or more interactions, when near higher energy?).
Yeah, I've thought of that too but my problem is how it relates to speed then. How do we measure speed?
We measure speed using the speed of light which we measure using atomic clocks (cesium atoms vibrating).
But if there is no time, what are we dividing distance by?
By vibrations of the cesium atom.

Those happen taking turns with other events in the universe.

Many games made in the 80s and 90s didn't simulate time at all. Makes it hard to play those games on modern fast computers because the games run their code too fast. Nonetheless those games could easily represent clocks that are consistent within their own simulation.

if you placed styrofoam on top of a flourescent lamp to act as a frame for a drape, would it melt from absorbing the radiation?
8 replies omitted. Click here to view.
just sublimate*

also, im drunk and seeing if ill remember this tommorow
convection is in a fluid.

Assuming the lamp is in a sealed room that is a perfect insulator, the styrofoam will eventually get hot enough to ignite along with eventually killing everyone in the room.
Air is a fluid.
air is a gas

Sorry, this is /sci/, not /x/ or /pol/. You need to back up your beliefs with evidence, or fuck off of this board.
There is tons of evidence dude. You just have to go out of your /reddit/atheism bubble and examine it yourself.
monks and hermits live like that and they are no atheists

there you go

writing up lab report for the first time. How do I do this? What resources can I get at?
I think it's expected I read up the textbook on each aspect of the theory behind the experiment which is impossible with the amount of work I'm already doing. We're not even doing an experiment based on a part of the course we've covered yet.
It's baffling there aren't people uploading their lab reports online for other people to take inspiration from. Am I just shit at googling?

I'm a loner and I'd love to get lecture notes and lab reports but whenever I ask for help from people in the facebook group they say they're just as ignorant as me or that they can't invite me to the tutor group with the 2nd and 3rd years because I didn't go out with them during either of the get-togethers. I'm working at least 70 hours a week, can't deal with the stress of awkwardly socialising with people who don't want to be around me.
Undergrad labs are canned and have been done many times before. You can look up the original paper for w/e you're doing on xarchive or through your library
Im autisme mode as well . just ask the guy next to you in a lecture if he has the course/ major dropbox. Helps to see last years reports to see what they expect.

As for material labs always do experiments on stuff you didnt learn yet . they usually either explain it before the lab or have just enough of the theory on the site.
>70h week
Mite as well KYS
My uni+ student job is barely half that
TA here. Almost every single undergrad lab has everything spelled out in the lab manual. Most even have sample lab reports.
some of them seem spelled-out but my group did an experiment with everything except the procedure left pretty much blank so I don't know what goes in the theory section

So what's the big holdup with fusion right now /sci/?
>the entire ITER project costs about the same as one new fission nuclear power plant
>the plan after ITER is to make DEMO, which is LITERALLY the same reactor except 4x the volume
So it's affordable relative to other sources and the greentards don't have a kneejerk reaction to it like they do to fission.

Why aren't we building like 50 of these plants RIGHT NOW?

Tokamaks, stellerators, and even Farnsworth fusors can sustain continuous fusion reactions.
This is a profoundly retarded appeal to authority. Einstein couldn't kill your parents, but it's still clear that you should never have been born.

watch part I and II if u wan't ur answer
Yeah I did mean to imply "self-sustaining," ie., no help from outside forces. Sorry if that wasn't clear.

So, /sci/, what's the best way to measure my IQ or what's the best (free) IQ test out there? I did some rather long IQ test some time ago and came out as 131 but i highly doubt it's accurate.
IQ threads should be removed and their creator punished.
Thank you for your intelligent contribution.
