what purpose would colored lenses like this have for a scientist/comic relief rich guy?
User avatar #3175 to #3148 - feelythefeel (10/27/2014) [-]
Scientists use lenses for different levels of magnification.

The sun and moon.
They've been around our whole lives.
When you look up at them, remember that your parents looked up at the same sun and moon when they were your age.
And so did their parents. And their parents' grandparents' grandparents.

Even the first creature to ever develop eyes, billions of years ago, once saw the exact same sun you're looking at now.

if you don't think that's the coolest shit then get out of my face
User avatar #3145 to #3144 - juon (10/19/2014) [-]
although the sun and moon themselves arent exactly the same as they were back then
theres less gas within the sun now than there was then
sunspot number and positions are also changed
and the moons been hit by meteoroids
so what we see is the same yet different

stop ruining the mysticism of this post.

its just adding to it
they arent how they used to be yet theyre still the exact same thing they were before

Is it possible to have an orbit lower than geostationary?   
Would is be fast enough, and would the atmosphere slow it down?

-Geostationary is a type of orbit that you can put a satellite in. There is no set altitude as long as you have the real estate for your orbit (ie. not crashing into other satellites of debris).

-Speed depends on the altitude

-Yes, if it was low enough, the atmosphere would slow the satellite down. Sometimes aero-assited maneuvers are made by lower satellites to save propellant, though.

Since there isn't a board for math, I decided to go here, because it is the closest thing. Using sound as an example, every time you double your distance from the source, the sound level goes down by six dB, and it goes up by six every time you half the distance. In order to find out how far you would have to be in order to achieve a new dB level from the current, the equation for this would be (D)2^(A-B)/6))=E where A is the current, B the new, D the starting distance, and E the necessary distance to achieve the new dB level. For math's sake let's assume when moving away D is always one. For this question, don't assume D=1. When moving closer to make the dB level increase, i.e, B>A, would the minimum distance be equal to 2^((-(A-B))/6), because it would take a distance of 1024 to make it go down by 60 dB, as such to make it go up, you would need to be at least 1024 away, correct? My other question is if I were to reverse the equation, and make it so it gives you the change in dB, (A-B), from starting and final distance, would the equation be similar to (6)log(E/D)/log(2)?

If everyone with aids died, would aids be gone?
User avatar #3127 to #3126 - juon (10/16/2014) [-]
no since aids is essentially the result of having hiv which is just siv that has mutated to affect humans
the possibility of it existing again is very real since people in some african countries do kill and eat monkeys who carry siv due to the food shortages over there

#3123 to #3120 - Womens Study Major (10/15/2014) [-]
it's known as the Mars spider, it was named by the Italian Biologist Professor Fuckthatca. He called it that because he stated "who wants to live on the same planet as that, fuck that fuck thaaaaaaat".

Does anyone know where I can find published lab reports on various experiments? For example, experiments on Parkinson's disease?

I'd already tried using google scholar, but a lot of searching didn't turn up as much good information as I'd like. Thank you though.
#3131 to #3115 - medxforme (10/17/2014) [-]
Honestly your best chance is probably going to google it. There are some databases out there that hold published works, but they usually cost money to access.
User avatar #3132 to #3131 - lyder ONLINE (10/17/2014) [-]
Yeah, I encountered that problem. Thank you!

Dunno if this is the right place to ask, but I've currently got really sore neck pains, but only when I move my eyes. I've recently started wearing my glasses again and I click my neck somewhat often so I believe that is the cause, but in the past just going to bed fixes it by the time I wake up; it did not when I went to bed last night. In the past I've tried paracetamol but it didn't work, so I was wondering if anyone knows of a cure.
User avatar #3112 to #3111 - subtard ONLINE (10/14/2014) [-]
Do you get any weird feeling under your ears, kinda behind/under your jawbone?
User avatar #3116 to #3112 - niimajneb ONLINE (10/14/2014) [-]
Yeah that's where the pain is when I move my eyes move.

I get the same thing, for me it helps to have a big meal oddly enough.
Either that or drink something carbonated which makes it initially a little worse but burping afterwards helps a ton for whatever reason.

any psychologists?
so in eigth grade i got hit in the head fairly hard
i was ok but have always felt kind of off and have struggled in focusing and school and a number of other things
last night during my adventures i got hit in the head again in the same spot and it feels like it fixed it
is this actually possible? like would the hit balance/rearrange the chemicals in my brain or something
#3117 to #3110 - youregaylol (10/14/2014) [-]
What you're looking for is a neuropsychologist, and possibly a neurologist.

And I'm not a doctor, but I'm 99.99% sure the old "hit it again" treatment doesn't work in real life. It's not like resetting a dislocated joint, the brain is a completely different beast altogether.

i was thinking that its gotta just be me over thinking it (ik theres a legit term for that but i cant remember)
but im finding it alot easier to focus today

#3102 - rakdinas ONLINE (10/12/2014) [-]
chemistry question. i learned it in another language so i might use wrong terms.

when you have CO2, all the connections around the C's and the O's are used. as C has a quadruple connection and the O's have a double connection.
but when you have CO, just 2 connections of the C is used. (and everything from the O is) where do the other connections go? are they just not used?
#3103 to #3102 - subtard ONLINE (10/12/2014) [-]
CO has a triple bond actually, carbon acquires a negative charge and oxygen a positive.
A negative carbon and a positive oxygen both have 7 electrons like nitrogen, which is why it forms in a similar fashion to N2.
User avatar #3105 to #3103 - ribocoon (10/13/2014) [-]

I need some sciencey people up in this. Preferably bio-science people.
I know 2 people with muscular dystrophy. They are brother and sister. Neither of the parents have muscular dystrophy. I was just wondering how that is possible, since muscular distrophy is in the X chromosome, so how did the girl get it when neither of her parents have it?
The parents have also told a relative of mine, that no matter how many children they would have, all of them would have it.
User avatar #3136 to #3100 - thesovereigngrave (10/18/2014) [-]
Not all muscular dystrophy is caused by the same gene. Some of the genes that can cause it aren't on the X chromosome.
#3113 to #3100 - zanntaggerung (10/14/2014) [-]
Sounds like it's a recessive gene so if both parents have the gene along with the dominant gene that counters it, neither will have the disease but there is a 25% chance offspring will receive 2 recessive genes and the disease. Maybe the parents are wrong in their assumption any children will get it but maybe I'm wrong about its behavior. Also, everyone has an X chromosome and girls have 2...Y is the one that only males have. I only took high school biology though, so don't take my word for all of this info.

Is there any legit connection between modern day women carrying purses and prehistoric/ancient women carrying satchels for gathering berries, nuts, whatever? I'm not well educated on the division of labour gender wise, but my gut is telling me women were primarily gatherers.

Or am I just an idiot trying to connect dots that aren't there?
User avatar #3101 to #3099 - frikandelspeciaal (10/12/2014) [-]
I'm pretty sure that women wear just purses because they have a lot of stuff to carry around.
-ID and bank-cards

Just do a google-image search of "content of a purse" and you'll see how much crap they carry around

any drugs to make me get higher energy level and possibly more concentrated?
User avatar #3225 to #3091 - coronus (10/30/2014) [-]
The best legal option is strong coffee. Caffeine tricks the brain by messing with adenosine detection, which is an important part of mental fatigue and sleep pressure. In short, it will unfailingly provide a mental boost by subverting sleep pressure, providing a moderate concentration boost.

Adderall and other low-level psycho-stimulants used to treat attention disorders have nothing but a placebo effect on healthy brain chemistry. In addition, the abuse of such things tends to cause problems in the long run.
