Use of scutoid in construction.

What potential lay there for this shape to be used in construction in the future? Seems like an efficient solution for creating stronger brick walls that pack more closely together. I’m not sure I entirely understand the exact geometry of trying to make joints with this. However.

Gender

No.10496866 ViewReplyOriginalReport
What is going on with the concept of gender right now in our society? I think it’s great that it’s being talked about more and people (hopefully) aren’t as discriminatory as in the past. At the same time, there is a weird phenomenon where science and biology are sort of being attacked or ignored.

For example, I’ve had people tell me that gender is completely a social concept, that it isn’t driven by biology, which is an absurd statement. I’ve also had people tell me there are no differences between male and female brains, which is of course not accurate.

Why is it so popular right now to downplay any biological differences between men and women, and attribute them to society? Is it because if you can find a biological basis between genders, then people are afraid that it gives power to stereotypes? Because it’s not the biological differences that reinforce stereotypes, it’s sexism itself.

Results of Neuropysch testing

No.10498595 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Recently I did five hours of neuropsych testing. The results were that my "visual-motor processing and processing speed" were in the "borderline range" basically meaning I'm mentally defective. Granted, I graduated high school, I passed every standardized test I ever took, even scored a 93 on my ASVAB when I thought I wanted to join the military (highest score is 100.) So why now in adulthood am I being basically told I'm a retard? For context, I was hungover the day of the test, and I've been abusing benadryl to get high. Over the past six months I've taken hundreds, maybe over 1000 tabs of benadryl. On top of that, I have horrendous depression and anxiety to the point its landed me in the psych ward seven times, I've burned myself countless times with matches, etc. But, the lady doing my testing said my results were because its the way my brain works, not because of my mental health. If I'm just mentally defective I kinda wanna kill myself. What do you think?

So I have been told that people on /sci/ deny that different races have different average IQ i.e. evolution stops at the neck. I thought this could not possibly be true. Is it?
