if you need infinite energy to reach faster than light, and than you would have infinite mass, could it be possible that the big bang came from something that succeeded? since it was a singularity of infinite mass and energy.

Matter could have been reused millions or billions of times before the big bang happened, doesn't explain the origin of matter

It was not an infinite amount, just a really large amount
But regular physics breaks down at extremes so maybe the laws didn't exist yet

Do nerve impulses travel across the synaptic cleft to the post-synaptic cell? yes or no?

Like nimba said, it sort of depends on how you're defining an impulse. If we're talking about the actual electric potential reaching a chemical synapse, I'd say technically no. That potential stops in the pre-synaptic cell, causing a release of neurotransmittors into the synaptic cleft. These neurotransmittors will in turn start a new electric potential in the post-synaptic cell. In an electric synapse the electric potential will travel straight to the next cell, but then there is no actual synaptic cleft.

I have an important class in mat-inf Wednesday 14:15 - 16:00
I have an important exam in mat-inf Wednesday 15:00 - 17:00

Because of this, I have reason to believe that the actual exam is simply time travel and showing up at both at the same time is enough. My problem, however, is that I'm not quite there in terms of time travel, as of now. Can you help me out here, science board?

o a new law has passed in my country, which allowes EVERYONE to gather anyones ip, whom they suspect may be pirating something. And the punishment for your everyday guy steve, who watched a season of friends on popcorn time, is 2 years in prison. I haven't downloaded any torrents in about a year or so, but i use Plex to watch stuff.

Im not really an expert on how ip's works, but i know that your internet provider gives you a static and a dynamic ip, and im supposedly not able to change the static one, right? Any thoughts on this matter?

On a side note: Does anyone have any experiences with any VPNs that are free, good, and dosen't have a bunch of ads that could give me trojans, like hotspotshield. If so, i would greatly appreciate it!

haha eurofags
tor is not meant for torrents. I know in the US there's pretty big penalties for pirating but people who don't distribute aren't caught usually
if you want a quality VPN you have to pay for it. It's pretty cheap actually, many are only $10 / month

I know that. But there are many free vpns that are pretty much as good as the payed ones. Im looking for opinions on which of these are the best. Your comment wasn't very contributing.

well, I'll answer your question directly. I have not come across a free, good VPN that does not have data limits. FinchVPN has some data cap and I don't use it to download (though tor is better for this purpose I've found)

Not sure where else to put this, but here's my question:

Is it normal to have asymmetrical lymph nodes? They aren't tender, and I don't have problems swallowing or anything. Just the left one is slightly larger. Not noticeable by looking, but by feeling.

Lymph nodes occur all over your body FYI, those are usually called tonsils though they are lymph nodes . Unless you have AIDS or lymphatic cancer you're probably fine, inflammation can occur asymmetrically if this is a recent development plus assessing size by touch can be pretty tricky (especially if you're worried about it).

Read something that it contains poisounus shit, and would mean there's a smaller chance to find life. But it would still improve the conditions for humans living there.I know very little about the subject though!

what does it mean to waste water besides a increase in the water bill? i thought it went back to the underground aquafier or lake they got it from and the rest would evaporate into rain and come back as rain

It takes energy and money and time to recycle the water that goes down the drain. If you have a lot of demand and very little water available like California , the extra resources going into that recycling could be spent elsewhere, but make it harder and longer to get clean water back to the people.

Water could also be lost through the ground and bodies of water. It's especially difficult to reclaim it once it reaches saltwater. Public aesthetics, like fountains, also waste water when it could be used to grow crops or provide sustenance for people. That's why they usually shut them down during the summer in Cali.

I don't know where to go with this but...how many races are there? Some people say 3-4 some people say from 4-5. I don't really know what I should run with. Any help?

race is not really a scientific consensus. the 3-4 models are based on 19th century research which is also probably largely subjective and unscientific

If I would take a guess, N-ethyl-N-methyl propan-1-amine? Not sure about the punctuation and spaces but should be close.

there's no math board so I'm posting this here

is this correct? my teacher provided a problem for us to solve on our own and I think this is right, though I'm not 100% sure.

i did the sequences first, using 0, 1, 2, 3, and 4 and I came up with the summation.

also I forgot +C but who cares

hey there, I need to do my bachelor essay in behavioral economics / psychology
does anyone know an interesting quite actual topic that would be fun and easy to write 40 pages about?

Behavioral economics and psychology only makes me think of one thing: Spending fads brought on by media

Look at stuff like fashion, toys, etc. from the 60's until now and how they've differed greatly from one another. If you're a psych major talk about why people were/are drawn to that

Any Biologists here? Got a question about the hardy-weinberg-principle.
Is sexual reproduction interfering with the equilibrium? Some of my colleagues say yes, but I'm not that sure about it. There has to be some sort of reproduction, that it can't be asexual is clear but sexual reproduction shouldn't interfere with the idea. Only solution I could come up with is that the term "sexual reproduction" isn't the same as "panmixia"

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
