Am I batshit insane for promoting Genetic Engineering in humans through the DNA of various marine life forms?

Because I'm about to pump out roughly 10 pages on the subject to tell my teacher "This is what I want to write my Term Paper on", the make a Powerpoint of which I will have to show the class in November and it's my last chance to back out and just write about the History of the Baltic Fleet in the Russo Japanese War.

I'm confused. Did he change it before you sent it so that's what the teacher saw?

I was choosing to write my paper on either Marine Biology in conjunction with Genetic Engineering, or on the history of the Baltic Fleet this is for a College Freshman English class but fuck it go big or go home

Originally was going to do it on Marine Bio and GE, but then decided after speaking to my dad about it that I may in fact be insane and want genocide/mass euthanasia and allow only the chosen strongest to survive and breed, so I was going to change it to the Baltic Fleet

However, I went out with a friend I haven't seen in forever to her College, got shitfaced because I was opened up to drinking after a while, came home, and wrote it. That last post was made while I was drunk. As was my paper.

I emailed it to someone who wan't my teacher actually, so I feel pretty sorry for them. I turned in my paper today. Teacher kept giving me the most worried look out of the corner of my eye all class

Granted she's an English professor who can't form a non-run on sentence and doesn't know spellcheck, and makes words up on the fly flustrafied, emanctipated, lackadaisy, etc. so she isn't going to understand what I wrote the most barebones shit I revised to just talk about why we need to advance genetic engineering and how the Ocean is basically the answer to all of our problems . Although I still quoted Mengele a few times

alright guys im fucking retarded and need help on a prerequisite class assignment. It says the there is a point (x,y) on a graph (at X, 1) and two distances d1 being at (-1,0) and the other d2 at (1,0). Prove that (d1)(d2) = 1 and is the equation (x^2+y^2) = 2(x^2-y^2) (it tells me it's a lemniscate and to sketch and identify 3 points on the graph). Help pls the shit i found on the internet didnt help at all.

Could you clarify your question a bit? So first off, you can't multiply coordinate points. (d1)*(d2) has no meaning. And is it asking for you to identify those points on that equation? Because those d1 and d2 don't occur on it. Also, that equation doesn't define a lemniscate at all. Could you perhaps take a picture of your assignment so I could look at it?

it was worded awfully. basically what i had to do was to perfom a distance formula for both points (-1,0) and (1,0) which would be ((x+1)^2 + y^2)^1/2) x ((x-1)^2 +y^2)^1/2) = 1


When it was all factored out it would become x^4-2x^2+2x^2y^2+2y^2+y^4+1 = 1
I then moved -2x^2, 2y^2, and 1 to the right side in order to equal x^4+2x^2y^2+y^4 = 2x^2-2y^2 which factored out to (x^2+y^2)^2 = 2(x^2-y^2) (I had actually fucked up on the original problem because I left out the square on the first side.) Then I just had to find the foci (-a,0) and (a,0) which I just used 1 because it was on of the original points and got (+2^1/2,0) and (-2^1/2,0) and then I just sketched it.

Thanks for the help anyways.

Elon Musk seems like the kind of guy you'd see in comic books, a wealthy entrepreneur with a profound influence in the scientific world and who naturally wants to use his extensive resources to make the world better, but who will inevitably end up going crazy and trying to do something drastic that actually makes him a supervillain. Idk what his nefarious plan will be, but he just announced that he wants to launch a bunch of internet satellites into orbit, and that seems pretty shady to me.

Whats wrong with me. Ill post as short a version as I can.

I have these episodes. They come on over the course of around 20 minutes. I feel like I cant think clearly.It takes a lot to think through anything. I can see, but its hard to comprehend what I am seeing. Vertigo. Lots of pressure in my head, occasionally head hurts during. It continues to get worse, eventually I have trouble holding my head up, like my head bobs, looks like im falling asleep. My left side of my face, and the back of my head will tingle. If it gets really bad I fall down. I dont think I lose consciousness, because I can hear, but I cant really remember stuff that happens during or after for a little bit.

My heart rate is a bit low, but not much so. Have had a 20 minute eeg, tilt table test, balance test, and probably more that I cant remember at the moment. All came back normal. Any takers?

Maybe? In theory it could work, and be great. It comes down to who has the power of controlling the meds. In a utopia, it would be totally feasible to apply for a pregnancy. Let only those who can afford to care for a child, and who are ideally mentally and psychically well off, reproduce, and you could have a great society. Unfortunately it would not be possible, because I believe no matter how you work out a system like that, it could be corrupted. Also religious people.

How would I rewrite the quadratic formula so it works for calculators when a: 1e-8, b: 10, c: 1e-8


The "calculator" I use is Python btw. Exact code is:
import math

a = float(input('Enter a:'))
b = float(input('Enter b:'))
c = float(input('Enter c:'))

d = (b**2) - (4*a*c)

sol1 = (-b-math.sqrt(d))/(2*a)
sol2 = (-b+math.sqrt(d))/(2*a)

print('the values of x are {0} and {1}'). format(sol1, sol2)



Which gives the values of x are -1000000000.0 and 0.0, and obviously that don't fly

Can someone Explain to me about either Transhumanism or the Singularity?

The Singularity, as I've come to understand, is an upcoming event during which some sort of supermassive AI will become self-aware, essentially what Skynet is, although it's not presumed that this AI will become aggressive towards humans. Personally I don't believe that it will ever be possible for computers to be self-aware, so I'm not concerned about this.

Transhumanism, on the other hand, does intrigue me. I saw a video in which Dr. Michio Kaku discussed the possibility of transferring electrical data from a single neuron into a microscopic computer chip, and he explained that by replacing brain cells one by one with computer chips, it's theoretically possible to "download" one's mind. It seems a little farfetched to me, but the way he explained it made it seem realistic. So I'm open to the possibility.

I know this board is very much dead, but I just saw this post: /channel/oc-comic-makers/Unlimited+universes/hXsdLuK/
and I want to ask for your thoughts. Which Multiverse theory do you think is more likely to be correct / closer to the truth?
Copenhagen? Many Worlds? Soap Bubbles?

personally, I´m a big supporter of the Soap Bubbles theory, where universes exist in a form like a soap bubble. They keep doing them, until one day two (or more) collide, and with something like reverse mitosis, they fall into a single, bigger bubble, or the two bubbles (not necessarily spheres) overlap. The last time that happened with our universe, we got a little thing called The Big Bang
This postulates of course that "the" (our) universe isn´t infinite, which is still very much open to debate.
I think it´s a really neat concept.

you would need more info i know, so we are talking about ship sailing forward. . So i didnt meet this before or i did but forgot it, i think we are taking in account resistance of water and air pushing against the hull of the ship, that would make it too simple i think. But resistance could be taken as loss of energy, so if i know properties of H2O (velocity, density....) i could use Bernoullis equation to express the energy loss edis . I already posted a problem which contains this equation /science/4728#4728 , (its above step 1) with some modification it could work........but if anyone could check me, it would be nice thanks.

For the record the other guy is completely wrong. you can't just add statistics like that. Otherwise that'd be like flipping two coins with 1/2 odds of head, and getting a 100% chance that you get at least one heads.

Chance you get at least one of those = 1 - Chance you get none of those
=1-[(999/1000)*(99/100)*(249/250)]]
=0.014946

Don't call me a dumbass because you don't understand high school math. You can't just add probabilities, you'd be double-counting instances when any two or all three of those events happen. The 3/200 answer is incorrect, but the overlap from the probabilities creates a relatively small error in this occasion only because the listed probabilities are small so it'd be rare for them to happen together.

find the least common denominator, which would be 1000 for all them, and find the corresponding numerator. 1/1000 stays the same, 1/100*10/10= 10/1000, and 1/250*4/4= 4/1000. add 1/1000, 10/1000, and 4/1000 to get 15/1000. they both have a common factor of 5, so divide by five, equaling 3/200. hope this is correct for you

n=m/M [mol] glucose has its molar weight M (which is 180,155). if it says 17,2kj/mol that means 1 mol (n) * 180,155 g/mol (M) = m(weight) 1 * 180,155 g. so for whatever you need those 17,2 kJ you will use it for 180,155g of glucose. probably you are talking about heating it up for 1°C. but i would need someone to check me for i am not sober at the moment. School stars so my rants on this board too.

I had a brain tumor 10 years ago. It was slow growing and cancerous. The cancer didn't spread. The tumor blocked blood-flow, and forced my blood to penetrate other ways through my brain.



Now I often get a variety of problems when out in sun, or other bright light sources. I recently realized that what I get correlates to the exact symptoms of oxygen deprivation, though only headache is present to a large degree, most of the time.
I get, mainly, three types of headaches; sharp, throbbing, and numb. All are considerably worse than migraine, except maybe numbing headache, where all my receptors work much, much slower. When I have a bad case of headache, my motor-functions aren't as sharp, amongst other things.
If the sun is high, wearing a cap can halt, to completely stop me from getting a headache.


Though unlikely, can my condition be related to oxygen deprivation?
I've tried exercising, vacationing in mountains, forests, seashores and more.
