No I just quietly lose respect for them when they are wrong about things.
To be fair it is usually something that is not even their field of study so I don't know why they are even talking about it.

With the Heavy they're going to be having almost as many engines all working and talking to each other. They should be able to pretty much get it right for BFR.

Exactly, i ended up with the same answer, except I approached it a little differently.

>>9237991
Do a simple dimensional analysis. Using your method you will see that your final answer would be dimensionless, which can't be correct. You need ft/s. not s^-1

you are dividing ft^3 by ft*ft*ft.

I do not understand how
V = L*(1/2)wh
can immediately be
dV/dt = L*(1/2)*2w dh/dt

It could be
dV/dt = L*(1/2)*(h dw/dt + w dh/dt)
first
then w = 2/3 h, so dw/dt = 2/3 dh/dt
so h dw/dt = 2/3 h dh/dt = w dh/dt
so h dw/dt + w dh/dt = 2w dh/dt

My biology professor told us this today. It's an older woman with white hair and a scarf. Do any of you know what this is about?

She probably meant that scientific facts are just things that the scientific community has agreed upon and are subject to falsification, rather than absolute truth.

It's just a provocative way of stating something that should be obvious to everyone.

>>9237756
Social construct != thing that don't real.

It's not uncommon to have discussions about "what is science?" in intro science courses.

Rent a month is $500

For 30 days: $500 ÷ 30 = $16.67 a day

Well, I put in $300 to sleep in car, though it's getting cold so I'm gonna get back in..

so which math do I work with?
>>
>>9238035
Like, the values are all mixed up.

Need help with this brain teaser

It doesn't make sense to charge $16.67 for rest of month, as that value is attached to previous 15 days.

It's paying for a room, but only cutting it in half. I should pay $250....But I paid for $300 already

How should I make the payment Bros

500-300= 200 ?

The values are totally different, so I don't know what is fair and what isn't

What is ‘scientific’ about Marxism. Popper stated his shit can’t be falsified and hence is comparable to astrology (along with psychoanalysis) but even though I am a Pinochet loving lolbertarian, I feel there’s more to him than just a few debunks. Can someone give me a rundown on the /sci/ence behind Marxism.

>supply and demand
dat bait
if you happen to be serious would you please off yourself before you start claiming consumerism is the end all of a productive economy (while public funding produced nearly all meaningful gain to QoL, LE and technology)
>>
>>9234866
this thread is utter garbage

The holodomor happened, the gulags did not kill many people. but many people were turned out to die in Siberia, the Marshall plan helped foster puppet states until massive economic gain was on the table (Suez), USSR tanked after the tankies left and it was due to capitalist exploitation. China under Mao was a shithole, but that's because Mao was literally a 75 IQ brainlet who got mad when he didn't understand the artists currying his favor, so he killed them out of rage and frustration.

How would a sane socialist tell peasants to smelt steel in their bamboo hovel? We aren't really arguing particular ideologies so much as we are going through a list of each others' bugaboos.

Clearly the greatest gains to purchasing power are through a consumer economy, which is naturally the quickest route in capitalism to cost reduction. It is also the most naturally exploitive economy because competition doesn't care about anything other than the price-point (consumers don't give a fuck about the origin of the product, look how hard the EU brought the hammer down on specialty goods).

We have waged economic warfare on the east since before HK was leased, and when they hold their currency we cry like little babies.

We abuse the UN to prevent anything we find remotely undesirable from happening even if its just trite penis measuring with the USSR/Russia. We don't make NATO a world organization so that we can continue to be anti-cooperative; similarly the World Bank ponzi scams shackled Africa into debt because we wanted to force stability on the region through payment plans.

>Socialism doesn't work
>Capitalism doesn't work
NEITHER EXIST
Only state authorized trade and illegal trade exists, and both happen in every country of the world

mechanical/electrical/civil engineering

kids complain about there not being jobs in these fields and its entirely untrue. the problem is they all think they are going to get jobs at koenigsegg or spacex. no. focus on HVAC, power, water, or soils and you are employed for life. sewage treatment and fire suppression systems are boring as fuck, but they are easy and pay well.

However technically you will be just an assistant. The credit will go to your colleague.
