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.

He's also been trying for years to buy thermonuclear missiles because he wants to nuke the fuck out of the Icecaps on Mars, effectively terraforming it for colonization

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?

You should see a doctor immediately.

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?

From what i've heard is that some lunatics wants to either create an sentient AI a-la SKYNET or download our brains into computer systems.
User avatar #4910 to #4901 - jokeface ONLINE (09/18/2015) [-]
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.

hi, can anyone tell me how can i calculate hydraulic resistance?
User avatar #4890 to #4889 - zonetransferrer (09/09/2015) [-]
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.

sciencejunk help me with statistics
i need to figure out the final odds of one of these things happening

one is 1/1000
one is 1/100
and one is 1/250
User avatar #4892 to #4877 - subtard (09/11/2015) [-]
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
User avatar #4894 to #4892 - molestedbeggar (09/11/2015) [-]
i'm not sure if that equasion is about flipping 2 coins or my statistics.
User avatar #4895 to #4894 - subtard (09/12/2015) [-]
It's the answer to your problem.
User avatar #4896 to #4895 - molestedbeggar (09/12/2015) [-]
how do you turn 0.014946 into "1 in N"?
User avatar #4898 to #4896 - subtard (09/13/2015) [-]
1/0.014946 = 67 so it'd be 1 in 67.
User avatar #4899 to #4898 - molestedbeggar (09/13/2015) [-]
Look down.
I got to 3/200 with the other method which equals 1 in 66.666...7 dumbass
User avatar #4900 to #4899 - subtard (09/14/2015) [-]
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.

cool, I learned something
#4878 to #4877 - dovahnon (09/09/2015) [-]
try multiplying them i haven't needed to do that math in a while
User avatar #4879 to #4878 - molestedbeggar (09/09/2015) [-]
that's how you find the probability for all of them happening at once
User avatar #4880 to #4879 - dovahnon (09/09/2015) [-]
then wouldn't you just add them together? (3/200)?
User avatar #4881 to #4880 - molestedbeggar (09/09/2015) [-]
but how do you come to that?
User avatar #4882 to #4881 - dovahnon (09/09/2015) [-]
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
User avatar #4883 to #4882 - molestedbeggar (09/09/2015) [-]
oh thanks, i was getting 1/1000, 10/1000, 4/1000 but i added both the numerators and the denominators
thank you for explaining where i went wrong.

Need some mildly experienced chemist
my homework says That glucose has 17.2kJ/mol. this is bullshit, right? isn't it more like 14-17kJ/gram? what the fuck, textbook. 12th Grade my ass
good luck answering me, last time someone commented here was.... a long time ago.
User avatar #4873 to #4868 - zonetransferrer (09/08/2015) [-]
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.

depends on what you're trying to measure (heat of combustion, heat of formation, etc.)
the enthalpy of combustion is around -2800 kj/mol

we're talking about metabolisis of these substances in the average human body (about 7560kJ/Day)

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.

My brother had it and all he had was a bit of pain.
and after like 2 weeks of the removal treatment he went back to the doctors office and got some of the resistant gunk to be scraped out.
The removal kit only really softens the wax to get it to fall out.
