As someone who is planning to become a Nazi Eugenicist work in the field of Genetic Engineering in the future, I had a theory today on how to create the perfect physical man naturally through selective breeding. Please give thoughts as to why I should be put down before it goes any further

The first step would be choosing parentage. The ideal candidates would of course not have a history of drug use or hereditary ailments. Ideally the child, when fully grown, would be around 6'2-6'4 and would way somewhere between 220-245lbs. Any more height would be detrimental for everyday life and for various exercises such as squats. Any more weight would mean that there is a higher bf% than necessary.
To this end, the father would be around 6' Mesomorphic man, while the mother would be between 5'8-5'11 Meso or Ectomorphic woman. This would produce the desired height and a much more optimal metabolism for the next step

Childhood caloric intake directly affects one's growth. The reason we see many children being much shorter and leaner is due to them not eating much as a child while creating a caloric deficit through sports. Often times when they do eat, it's junk food or whatever edible paste the school serves during lunch hours. This is how we get manlets. In order for our specimen to to be optimal in adulthood, they would need a high intake of protein and testosterone rich, ideally this would come from Red Meats and various fish and carbohydrate rich foods. Protein to promote muscular growth, carbohydrates to create fats used to naturally increase muscle strength Due to excess weight the muscles strengthen themselves in order to carry it, protein aiding this process to a great extent and also to create a caloric surplus used for promoting growth in height at an early age. Effectively, we'd be creating a fat kid who plays Minecraft all day. However, instead of sitting around doing nothing, the specimen would work with fitness bands and spurts of bodyweight movements to prevent muscles from getting atrophied each day, along with pushups and situps in the lower numbers to create a beginning of strength but not lose fat. Through this we would achieve our ideal height and frame. Think of it like chiseling out the ideal amount of Marble from the much larger stone to work with. You need more than you will need

Once the child has reached the age of 15, they should be at our 6' height and around 260-300lbs. Now is were we begin weight training and proper dieting. For dieting, we would cut out most but not all of the carbohydrates, adjust the protein intake as necessary, and introduce more fruits and vegetables rich in vitamins B, C, and D, along with necessary acids and Calcium. Weight training would be introduced slowly at first using primarily bodybuilding techniques and cardio to remove the no longer necessary excess fats. The subject would work in 4 day intervals, followed by a rest day where they would take in larger amounts of proteins than during the rest of the week. This would contain more bodyweight and light-weighted movements at first, such as weighted sprints and lateral movements with dumbells and machines. Gradually we would increase weight and volume, specifically targeting muscle groups to promote size and definition. Once we've achieved a weight of 200, the subject should be fatter than most, but at the same time showing good hypertrophy.

At the age of 17, we being strength training. The subject will now switch to a 6 day cycle, with 3 days focusing on high weights for 2-5 reps with the big 3 and Strongman exercises, and 3 days continuing hypertrophy training, increasing weights and reps as necessary, followed by their rest day used for excess intake of protein and other necessities

By age 20, we should have a man able to bench 4 plates, squat at least 5, and deadlift at least 6, with a functionally perfect physique and low lactic acid production

From there we clone, Mengele out

My god you really don't even understand the very very basics of genetics and evolution, do you?

Lifestyle does not effect your genes, that's what LaMarck thought but has been proven wrong. Training a child does not mean it gets strong children or that if you'd clone a strong man you get strong children. If you have an average, or even weak, person and you train them every day to become strong regardless of whether they have the genetic advantage of being above average strong, it's children will still inherit the average or weak genes.
If you have a random group of people and have them perform the same chores, then select the ones that excell at those chores and breed those, and continue doing so for multiple generations, then you might be evolving to stronger/more intelligent/whatever trait you're choosing.

Rather than spending time trying to be edgy, try picking up a book on evolution and genetic inheritance.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epigenetics

Still though, unless I misunderstand the point, this isn't really the concern of a geneticist. Nor any modern science for that matter. It's well accepted that good genetics and rigorous exercise and diet will lead to a fit human. That's not exactly a point of contention. Nor does making "perfect humans" have any practical use. What is your goal here?

Didn't have the text to fill it in and needed to go out for a few, but it's fairly rudimentary as of right now

Obviously this won't be right on the first go, so you'll need to go through a few generations promoting strong traits and cutting out the weak ones. The same would go for intelligence. Continue the lineage of those with desired traits and intelligence, so on and so forth until it's perfect. As for gaining initial intelligence, that could be done by either initial parenthood or through standard teaching. Mind you we're talking about the micromanagement of a single organism each day for 20 years. It's not going to be working, sleeping and eating 24 hours per day and we're not even starting proper weight training for 16 years, there's room to educate it.

Or you could split up 2 groups by sex. Males work from the start for physical qualities alone, females are educated and given basic physical exercise to not compromise physical qualities in offspring. After X many generations, you repeat the above paragraph for males, and keep females primarily the same, only difference being you move along the education at a faster pace

Educate and prep for 16 years, work physically for 5, results at 20, re-breed as necessary

How to STEM majors feel about performing arts/education majors? I'm music ed and I've come across types of people that either don't care or feel insulted that degrees like mine even exist. Personally, I love my STEM majors to death. Y'all got it rough, and I sympathize with the passion to bring good things into the world. What do you think of us fine arts friends?

arts/education are imho incredibly underrated as their importance contributing to society.

I love the current movement STEM to STEAM including arts/design. Combining arts with science is a great outreach to the public to convey your message and is beneficial for everyone (people understanding what is going on and what is being done with their tax money), as well as making things often understandable and approachable. And education by itself is crucial and underappreciated as well, without teachers we wouldn't have any other degrees, and being a good teacher is a great skill by itself

"I have a well paying job with job security in an ever advancing field"
"Yeah, but, like, do you love what you do?"

That is the only argument I've ever gotten when someone brings this shit up. Arts and Music is a hobby, not something that needs a degree in order for you to maybe have the blind luck necessary to make money in the entertainment industry

I've asked the same question before, and normally it's not to challenge anyone's educational decisions, either I'm just genuinely curious or the person I'm asking won't stop bitching about their major and how un-fun it is. Keep in mind the latter is pretty rare.

Honestly, there's a lot of money to be made in performances. Doing run-out gigs and private events is what is getting me through college at this point. I agree, it definitely is a hobby, and while getting better at it is rewarding both intrinsically and financially, it's not entirely why I'm here. My plan is to bring great people as well as great music into the world, and I feel like everyone can appreciate that, right?

I was watching Star Trek and decided to toy around with how we could potentially create a workable version of the warp drive and artificial gravity in real life.

A civilization sufficiently advanced could potentially create nanobots and send them out into space. Their purpose to seek out stellar bodies then break down their matter and re-assemble it into more nanobots. The original nanobots would then return home and the rest go out to repeat the process. This way they could have a pretty steady source of building material for planetary-scale engineering.

Have the nanobots assemble into a giant solar sail near a star, balancing the push of the star against their sail and gravity pulling the star towards themselves. It is conceivable they could move stars around in this way, or would have found a different method. Move stars into a slingshot corridor which can be used to reach extreme velocities without expending fuel, they will actually be sources of fuel and energy while accelerating their flight.

With the ability to break down and build at the molecule level they could create any material they needed so long as they had matter to break down. Using this to create incredibly dense material constructed in space into an object of vast mass. Being inside this vehicle will slow your perception of time in relation to the rest of the universe due to gravitational time distortion. This vehicle would likely be VERY large even with being able to build with the densest material you need a lot to significantly slow time from dilation. With the levels of mass and gravity we are talking about you would be squished trying to stand on the outside. Placing the living quarters inside at the proper location will create artificial gravity, with the mass below you being more than the mass above and pulling more. With nanobots out collecting matter this shouldn't pose the overwhelming logistically challenge it seems today.

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.

It was not an infinite amount, just a really large amount

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!

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

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).
