Does this shallow patch of ocean have a name? It looks like a sunken island bigger than New Zealand. It's near Antarctica. When's the last time it was above water? If there's another ice age could it be dry again? If It becomes dry again I call dibs. It looks like part of it does poke above the surface and is claimed by the French but the French can suck it.
Looks like a continental fragment
That's the Kerguelen Plateau. As this anon >>9541204 said, its a continental fragment and micro-continent. It was above sea level 100-20 million years ago and is now 1-2KM underwater, so I don't think its coming back anytime soon.

Yea.. especially considering global warming it probably will stay submerged for a pretty long time

Every conspiracy theorist moron ever thought they were "red-pilled"; privy to information that others aren't. But when it comes down to it, there's a reason you spend all your time circle jerking in hug-boxes where other equally stupid people tell you you're right, and most of your "arguments" are based on flat out lies, omissions of information, name-calling/labels, and most commonly all three at once.

When it comes to ranking conspiracy theorists in order of stupidity, neo-nazis are on approximately the same level as flat earthers.

Will long hair affect "opportunities" while studying? I'm currently studying a BSc Mathematics
It depends directly on the style you have for it and how you look with it. It also depends on just how long it is. There's a zone of length where people will try to influence you to cut it. If you are past that length, no one will discuss that with you.
Im a math and physics major and my hair is longer than the guys in the picture. I've gotten several internships and now an offer for a job. Just keep it clean and if it looks like a mess when down just tie it up.

What's inside a black hole, really?
20 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
No, the density of the black hole is always a finite number, it's the density of the singularity at the centre that's infinite. And it is always infinite for any black hole, because it's a point with zero volume, so its density is infinite for any mass.

My sister got addicted to xanax for a while. While she took them she was the single dumbest person I've ever met. Couldn't even understand basic things going on in here surroundings.
She doesn't take them now, but the damage seriously lasts.
I was doing 200mg moda daily.

Eventually I started having extreme anxiety attacks.

Why does evolution make some people attractive and some people ugly? I thought evolution has no concept of “purpose”, and yet attractive people are more likely to survive and reproduce than ugly people as if it was predetermined

>I thought
that is where you went wrong
Because sex feels good and ugly people fuck other ugly people. It would only be selected against if they got less sex but they dont, they just lower their standards. Plenty of uggos to procreate with.
beauty is only one of many factors that determine the likelihood of you reproducing.
>This is why people universally want to fuck their gender-swapped image from FaceApp.
Mine looks exactly like my sister. I do NOT want to fuck my sister.

I was just hanging out when I just realized that if you multiply any number by itself and then add your original number and the next corresponding number, you then get what is equal to the next number multiplied by itself.

For example,

That could represented as (x^2 + x) + (x+1) or
could be simplified to (x^2 + 2x + 1) if you want a function for the process.
that's because multiplication is just condensed adding basically
Everyone has to start somewhere... If you find this kind of thing interesting, I suggest you mess around with some induction. You'll find other interesting results pretty quickly.

Imagine that you would be learning math from the 1st grade using khan academy. You come in for a class, you sit at the computer and watch videos/complete assignments at khan academy. The teacher is there only to answer your questions. Every month or so there is a formal test to track how you are doing. How different would your current proficency in math change?
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.
They did this to our middle school and it set everyone back a year in math. Videos are boring and kids aren't gonna pay attention. Teachers who interact are way better for educating children
I never understood the endorsement of Khan Academy. I guess if you are a boomer and computers are still new and wild to you, it might seem like the future. But in reality what it is, some pajeet's throaty voice speaking over a badly rendered paint program, is even less engaging than a real person you can atleast look in the eyes or who has breasts to stare at. It was advertised as a revolution in how kids learn but in reality there is nothing new there except that it is on a machine. The whole thing just reeks of apathy to me, it's the teacher equivalent of letting the tablet raise your kid.
You sound like a disgruntled math teacher. Khan's video's provide an extremely efficient and effective way to learn math and science. Plus they are correct. Teachers makes mistakes in the classroom quite often, and their is no way for kids to know this as they are seeing it for the first time. His lectures are available any time; can be watched 2x; and stopped at your leisure. All in all pretty much a superior way to learn for the motivated student.
This sounds like an ad.
>pretty much a superior way to learn for the motivated student
>for the motivated student
That's the problem, most students aren't motiveted.

Why haven't scientists cured sleep yet? If you could cure sleep you would effectively double the global workforce's productivity (16 hours / day instead of just 8).

That sounds like a personal problem.
if i had the choice sleep only once or twice a week, i'd do it
I have no problems being unproductive. You fixate on productivity as if it is more important than the human experience itself. You are your own personal problem. And society's problem really.
>if i had the choice sleep only once or twice a week, i'd do it
No, it'd be a cure, you wouldn't ever sleep again.
You ever see that movie Click, with Adam Sandler? I just remember spending most of the movie figuring out the better way to use the magic remote.
Like putting the world on pause while you get a solid 8 hours of shut eye, or even just a cat nap.
There are all kinds of positive benefits to sleep, both mental and physical. Probably be easier to invent a hyperbaric time chamber bedroom than to get rid of sleep in a non detrimental way.
Plus part of the problem in the modern age already is that because of automation and instant electronic communication a single person is able to get way more work done now than their equivalent was even 20 years ago.
One of the ideas for helping with unemployment is to reduce a work week from 40 hours to 20, and just hire more people and spread the work out more for slightly more pay.
You also tend to work more efficiently when you have less time. Think about when you take a half day from work, or REALLY need to be gone on time and somehow you get 10 hours of work done in 4 because you cut out all the bullshit time wasting everyone does during the day.
Instead of watching the clock wondering what else you can do to kill the 32 1/2 minutes before you can go to lunch.

I'm just gonna think and do it like that honestly
No, when performing these tests, they are numbers in the sequence. and we don't care if the first element exists because we're looking at limits, only the tails matter, which are the same. Again, I agree that it's technically a subsequence but not in any meaningful way.
thx 4 mansplaining wot he means
