Can someone explain why my sweat smells like weed? I've never smoked anything in my life, but I know the smell and it smells fairly similar. I have no idea why.

You are slowly morphing into a marijuana plant. In approximately 4.20 days you will be kill. I am sorry, Mr. Pepsi Man.

In seriousness, your smell is a complex function of diet, cosmetics, cleaning supplies, laundry detergent, animals, etc. If you happen to live with a bunch of plants (flowers specifically), they may produce similar terpenoids, but it's unlikely. It's a coincidence that your (and others) brains sense it as similar.

If anyone here is interested in finding planets. Have to do it myself for a uni project.

i had this idea
i was in math class, and i had a hard time reading what it said on the whiteboard because there were a lot of dots on the board, which hadn't been erased.
then i had an idea: maybe the universe is the same, maybe "space" is just the blank spot from someone trying to erase everything on the whiteboard, but failing because they left all the little dots: galaxies, planets, suns.

Does anyone have the article that how we're destroying the universe since we take in the light and images of the universe and the other article of I think there's two of everything.
For the last one two scientist were studying a single particle and when they turned away, it turned into two separate particles.

The first one: io9.gizmodo.com/we-might-be-destroying-the-universe-just-by-looking-at-1514652112

The original guy wasn't really serious, just putting out a thought experiment, he was applying quantum phenomenon to enormous galaxies for no real reason. In fact, if you understand the topic at an even elementary level, it's complete malarkey. The false vacuum is just a theory anyway, that observation principle only applies to superposition (which macro-scale objects aren't in), etc.

For the second, are you referring to the well known double-slit experiment? That's not a "two of everything" theory, it's a superposition principle, and it's completely and totally misrepresented. A quantum object is under superposition on it's own. It is in all possible states at the same exact time. The way they act on their own can only be described by probabilities of all possibilities. However, if something else, whether energy or another particle, interacts with the quantum object, it needs to take on a "true" form and become a particle.Human observation isn't important at all, it's simply the fact that something external to itself interacts with it.

Think of it like this: You have Kinder egg. You have no idea what is inside, but based off of science, you can roughly estimate the chances of any outcome. This is "superposition". There's another Kinder egg and you need to swap their contents. So, in order for them to interact properly, the eggs need to be opened. As soon as you do, the contents are known for certain and the "superposition" has been collapsed. The fact you're alive has nothing to do with it, it's the fact that the two eggs needed to swap contents.

Something you didn't ask about, but I think is wildly interesting, is the fact that light has no concept of time. Relativity is this strange beast and it dictates that as you approach the speed of light, time slows down, distances become smaller. If you had a race between two space ships and the other went a significant fraction of the speed of light faster, it would both travel less of a distance and do it in less of a time than the other. At the speed of light, these effects are so powerful that the light travels a total of 0 distance in a total of 0 time, arriving at every destination it could possibly be the instant it comes into existence; the universe at that level is, essentially, a singularity.

what effects do you think the ripples would have on matter or the fabric of space-time when two black holes collide?
#5360 to #5355 - anon

well:
they could either amplify or destroy each other, sort of like sound waves.
or maybe they would create something different. a weapon to surpass metal gear?
what if the one black hole teleported the other black hole somewhere else? or even better: the two black holes came together and, before cancelled eachother out, they teleported something completely random to that location. imagine our sun dissapearing to some random galaxy because two black holes teleported it there by accident.

dunno what effects it would cause but i have another problem with this, since the gravitational waves were discovered, in every video and discussion, people are using term "fabric of space & time". What exactly am i supposed to imagine under this term?

Essentially what you hear is what you imagine: A big blanket holding the cosmos up. It has wrinkles, it can stretch, it can shrink. When you place an object on it, it creates a dimple, which is exactly what gravity is. Obviously it's more complex like that in it's true nature for instance space is not 2-D , but it's fundamentally the same idea.

Recently I found ZINK, which means "zero ink", and I'm super happy!
In short, it's an alternative to ink printers. It heats up crystals inside a sheet which then spread colors.

I wonder how else we can apply this...

Isn't this similar to existing thermal printing, just with layered crystals instead of a dye? Sounds like it'll have similar caveats: fade over time, external heat will cause inking where undesired if stored in a hot environment (car, direct sunlight). The paper will also be unable to be recycled by a standard plant (chemicals, yo), too expensive for casual use, etc.

Eh, 6/10, great use of buzzwords, decent application of science, decent end-goal, great execution, but poor idea in practice.

The idea is to remove the need for individual ink cartridges; thus no one color has to be replaced. just the paper itself needs to be supplied.

but, also, it isn't a household item so i don't see how effective that's gonna be.

Alright, I'm coming to the science board cause the question I have needs to be answered in a scientific way. What exactly is this genderqueer stuff and the gender dysphoria, does it have a scientific foothold or is it merely Tumblr "I'm Special" things. I'd appreciate multiple answers, even if it is your own opinion.

it is a thing. It is not as widespread as tumblr would like to believe. The most represented group in the cluster are homosexuals. They are still less than 5% of the population.

There are studies that show these people have different hormonal make-ups... that being said, I would really appreciate if they could put on some pants during the pride parade...

Hypothesis: Op is faggot because he likes dick in his ass

I shall have to run an experiment with OP's asshole and gain a couple dicks, 5 should do. I would then proceed to stick 5 dicks into OP's ass, one after another, to gain enough data to form a conclusion.

"This just in: Nuclear Fusion only a decade away since 1960!"

That wasn't really a nuclear fusion plant, not even close. It did one of the easier parts of the process: heating and pressurizing the hydrogen gases. Now we just have the tiny problems of actually capturing any energy, getting more out than we put in and developing materials that won't fall apart due to intense, non-stop neutron bombardment.

However, ITER solves all but the last one and will be an amazing step for human kind if it truly works.

Personal Note: Be careful. While there are no known health risks to the chemicals themselves, production of dye does often involve some dangerous stuff: namely lye and naphtha. Ensure it is properly cleaned (through a re-x or self-extraction if necessary).

Many of those who have experienced this dye report incredibly intense experiences, which may too much for you to handle suddenly. It's often recommended to start with a lesser dye first; some people talk about "LCD" or something, perhaps eat a salad of mushrooms? Then you may want to consider small amounts of dye before going for a full tye-dye. If you think you're ready, by all means!

As well, it's often best to not take anything in that world for reality. If you do, remember to stay in touch with this one. There will be no damage to your faculties, but our experiences shape who we are. It's often taken as incredibly spiritual, and for all we know it's true, but the "real" world is happening now, so appreciate it.

What a coincidence, I just did an A/B extract to get some dyes from ACRB myself!

I'm not sure what this "DMT" stuff is, but my goldfish loves to smoke the dye I get out of it. He says the highs are incredibly intense and vary wildly depending on the environment, person, dosage, etc. You'll almost always get jitters as you go in, he always smokes some herb first to relax. Meditate, slow the heart. Assuming proper technique and a good dose, here's how this will play out:

First hit, your blood pressure will rise, you'll start to feel some anxiety and fear as it begins to hit. This usually goes away within 30 seconds or so, so power through! You'll feel a kind of pressure all over your body, like gravity got turned up to max. Time will start to slow. With open eyes, things begin to warp and you may start hallucinating slightly.

With a second hit, it gets much more intense. You start feeling your mind slipping from your body, you'll hardly be able to move. It becomes difficult to judge distances, to sit up, to keep your eyes open. You're calming down from the anxiety, things mellow out a bit and it becomes extremely pleasant. Closing your eyes shows beautiful geometric patterns, perhaps even impossible geometry. You're melting away.

With the third hit, if you can, BOOM. You're in hyperspace. Anything can and will happen here. In a mere 20 minutes, you will experience so much that you may never be able to explain. It will feel like lifetimes have gone by, yet almost like no time has passed at all. It's truly something that can't be compared to anything else. You will maintain almost all rational thought during, though remembering anything before the high will be difficult and remembering anything afterwards similarly hard. Sometimes you'll have some semblance of control, sometimes you'll have none at all, just in it for the ride. Your body will just laze around, you won't have to worry about eating anyone's faces or getting hurt. But having a trusted buddy never hurts.

The come-down repeats step 2, and you'll want to try to record as much of your experience as possible. The memories are fleeting if not cemented. Don't worry, phase 1's jitters won't come back.

He recommends visiting the /r/dmt subreddit as well as the dmt nexus online, for some great trip reports, advise, and a nice community!
