Is the double slit experiment a meme? Is this proof that the world was created for us? Can other life forms affect the behavior of these particles such as a cat? Does this mean the world was made for the cat as well?

Eveything is garbage, everyone is a hack, this world is shit!
video is shit trying to push an agenda, ANY interaction "collapses the wavefunction" and destroys the interference pattern, a conscious observer is not needed
"observation" is totally misrepresented
no such thing as a passive eye
observing always disturbs the measured
Let's have an open discussion about the colonization of Venus's atmosphere. At 50 km up it would be a beautiful 27 degrees celsius. How sweet would it be to make a domed tropical paradise surrounded by fluffy yellow clouds?
Some methods include:
-Free-floating cities that go where the winds go using acid protected coatings
-Artificial mountains ascending 50 kilometers, which could become possible in the future with redirecting asteroids and leaving automated machinery on the surface to move and pile rock
Anyone have any other ideas?
(Proposed acid resistant coating as building material)
But is the atmosphere breathable? if it is, that's a huge bonus, however unlikely it is
No. There's no oxygen in the atmosphere and quite a lot of sulfuric acid. You'd need a hazmat suit and an SCBA but not a space suit like other planets.
Man, we don't need that large for rats, 30cm diameter should be enough.
A 30cm centrifuge would vary the force by much as 15% over the height of a rat. Larger means more consistent values. It also means limited human testing.
Oh wait you said diameter not radius, yeah thats going be way worse. ~0.65g at the top of the rat's head and 1 g at its feet.
Let me start by saying, I’m a skeptic. I’m in Hungary investigating some old tests done in the 1970s, in the Soviet Union, of a man named Pavlita and his devices, which could magnetize copper, plastics and glass for a short time. The researcher, a nuclear scientist, gave me 30 minutes of unpublished footage of these tests, and when I asked for clarification that “this isn’t a scam like pyramid power,” he directed me to another researcher, Zoltan.
I traveled the next day, two hours south to Paks, a town with a nuclear power plant. Zoltan, who was a chief safety advisor at the plant, started showing me his own pyramids in his backyard, which had wires and sensors inside them.
He demonstrated an instant 15 degree drop in temperature when the object was grounded, and told me about his theories. He says they’re not some sacred shape, but simply interact with radiation coming up from the ground and create a sort of heat from this.
His most convincing show was an anti-magnet. I saw it working there in person. He flipped a switch, and a steel gasket was pushed away from the coil, no matter which direction it was pointing, always repelling. He said this had to do with a focusing of this ground radiation coming upwards, directing it to push the metal.
I’m no /sci/entist, but is this even possible with normal coils of wire?
Pls no bully, I’m an independent journalist not a scientist
This is one of the devices I saw on my first day, dusty from the 1970s. The scientist explained to me that they were designed by Pavlita, and nuclear engineers were able to show reproducible results that they were using some unknown energy to magnetize organic materials, and even diamagnetic materials like copper or bismuth.
Pavlita, according to this researcher, was in this for fame. He said, “Pavlita didn’t know how science works,” and was sad that there were huge medical implications for these, but Pavlita thought somehow that he would just be handed millions of dollars for discovering it (the guy was a layman and not well educated.) It didn’t help that Pavlita tried to make a mystique around himself, claiming he gleamed these secrets from 200 year old alchemy textbooks in Prague, which the few western reporters gobbled up.
So I can find how to use the bones for square roots, but I literally cannot find any information on using the cube root stick.
If I learn Latin, I could look at the few original pages of Rabdology that I can find that cover the subject, or I could shell out several hundred for an out-of-print translation.
My question is whether or not anybody here knows the method? Or is my meager budget taking one for the team?
So I found an old checkers set, which let me easily create a 9x9 board on graph paper.
I’ve been practicing, and the division is... interesting. I can follow the example on the wiki page easily, but I decided to do an additional practice for division with 155/29. I know that I should get a result of 5 with a remainder of 10, but I can make the last column. I’ll post pics of my process, maybe I got it wrong.
And never fucking mind.
I forgot that I can halve up in addition to doubling down.
Anyways, here’s the godsdamn finished board - answer of 5r10.
Nice. Division is definitely weird
I want to figure out how to do the rest of the operations. Exponentiation will probably be pretty easy, but I have no idea where to even start with logarithms and the trigonometric functions
Now I’m playing with the square roots. Now if only they provided more than the picture for his example of 2209.
I might be seeing it wrong, but it looks the basis for the method is finding the nearest square that fits within the current number and building a square of tokens off of that, with the lines of previous squares intersecting. Then you add up all the positions to see if they fit inside, and move down-left if they don’t.
His example for 2209 confuses me, since it seems to not follow his method.
Why do flat earthers so badly want our world to be... well, flat? Isn’t the earth cooler as a spherical object?
They just wanna seem "woke" by going against what the majority agrees on.
Like those kids who immediately hate anything popular cause they wanna show how "unique" and "special" they are UwU
FFS both sides of this debate are fucking retarded. There is amazing evidence that the earth is flat and also amazing evidence it is round. So its pretty fucking obvious what the actual shape of the earth is. Flat earth is where we live but we are ON TOP OF a water sphere. This basically solves all the issues. Other planets? They are round but they are just dried water spheres and never had a flat planet form or land on top of them. Plane flights? You can sometimes see the curvature because the pilots fly over the round water sphere at some point, but you can't always because they don't always. NASA? They lie to us because the earth water sphere is potentially very dangerous and have never been explored. This also proves the real reason the poles are cold because the antarctic pole is hanging out into space and the north pole has a vortex of cold water beneath it at all times. So sick of the retards in these threads.
People want to be in on a secret. Everyone feels good if they know something that they feel is limited knowledge. It makes them feel special, and that's one of the big things behind the arguments of many, especially the Christian ones.
They often argue that science is trying to take away how special you are as an individual and we are as a species. There's a big ego aspect to it.
>>10314561 >There is amazing evidence that the earth is flat
No, there isn't.
It's obvious they're being sarcastic/ironic.
The picture even looks like it's been drawn on ms paint.
How do you get accepted into these schools? High IQ?
>>10314377 >No, go to an Ivy league school don’t be fucking stupid.
that's not much of an argument. if you're doing EE for example you'd be better off at MIT or Stanford than fucking Brown or any of those
>>10305579 >Having connections like legacies, "charitable donations", or unique achievements "almost inevitably contingent on connections", is how you get in.
I was just going to say nepotism, but this is a much more satisfying answer.
Score well on admissions? I got my MBA from HBS but I scored a 760 on the GMAT.
Ron Unz is truly the best researcher on the subject.
this Jewish IQ meme needs to end, if anything its been on a steep downward trend for a long time.
How much does scientific PROGRESS suffer under BLUMPF'S tyranny, /sci/?
not ringing any bells, sorry

What are the most underrated branches of physics?
I'm tired of hearing about string theory.
You’re in HEP? What’s it like?
Nothing. It is just an observation. It is the state of research in physics right now, either develop theories that won't have any applications, either make a discovery with a clear goal as an ant working in large projects, either gamble for small discoveries in cm labs. Then again I am just a brainlet so I wouldn't know what is useful and what is not.
sounds pretty boring. I think it's just you.
>>10309502 >String theory is the most underrated area of physics
In what 10 dimensional universe
This is exactly the kind of retard I'd expect to find on /sci/
Fucking hipster gtfo
could you use the chemical released in the brain during regrowth peroids or during newborn babies shedding/regrowth?
A 95 year old can be an Olympian with a 8 pack
Maybe hair follicles are the same as muscles in a way
I think he only cares about her appearance and he doesn't care at all about anything else.
such a brainlet
not wanting to have Witten as your waifu instead
>>10313932 >A 95 year old can be an Olympian with a 8 pack
why can't I build muscle then, Im 25
I swear you are the same faggot whining about the same shit in every thread
