plasma blood of those recovered can be used to treat COVID-19

>Eleven days after his first symptoms had appeared, the patient received an infusion of so-called convalescent plasma. On day 12, his blood tested negative for infection with the SARS-CoV-2 virus. His body’s inflammation level turned sharply down. And his blood-oxygen level had climbed to 90%. The next day, he was weaned off of the mechanical ventilation that had breathed for him for three days

Is this a cure? They're calling it a game changer. I mean they can't make enough tests, PPE, or toilet paper for everybody but blood is one that's easy to mass produce. Right? Assuming we start a massive blood drive will things start going back to normal before summer's end? Will things to back to normal before the November election?
also how weird is it that a disease that came from bats can be cured by behaving like a vampire?

Previous thread: >>11534971
Alexander Rhodes who was suffering from porn addiction started a movement called No-Fap. People from all over the world joined the challenge as they try to overcome porn addiction by abstaining from masturbation. But is it beneficial to do so? Or is it harmful?
Here are some studies I found about >the dangers of pornography:
1. Neuroscience of pornography addiction
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4600144/
2. Watching porn causes sexual dysfunction like erectile dysfunction.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5039517/
3. Porn cause lowering of acetylcholine levels, which causes brain fog
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4600144/
4. Porn can affect your sexual tastes especially in your younger age
https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamapsychiatry/fullarticle/1874574

And here are some other studies about >the dangers of jerking off and benefits of No-Fap
1. Masturbation can cause hair loss
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/135817/
2.No-fap raises levels of testosterone
https://healthfully.com/effects-of-masturbation-on-testosterone-5625804.html
3. Masturbation harms functionality of brain regions connected with dopaminergic system. It can cause decrease of one’s motivation
https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/23707935/
4.Ejaculation reduces oxytocin levels. Oxitocin is a hormone responsible for bonding with other human beings.

I want three people to help me on two projects if you want to

First Project; Kyng Virus. in its code is its name which is gonna be tied to me, and if it knows its name its gonna have the ability to change its code. yeah its wicked.

Second Project; DNAyyyy its Okayyy
this one is harder and easier I just need a concept of how the codes work to release max heal at total speed. I can do translation and assumption but that's not healthy and the test bunnies won't like it.

faith um does sort of matter I guess, atheist are the best because they dont care about how if it goes. Christians; you must believe in alcoholic wine, you must believe in proverbs 21;18. Muslims; a belief in the judgement of god helps, a belief that "jesus" was a prophet helps. Buddaists you are dreaming go atheist. Indian Religions? Hindi? not sure but Kali is connected to death and is definitely connected to resurrections. Greeks haha ok you just need to believe your gods name swap and that what you thought was Chronos is zues and what you thought was Zues is ten guys only Poisdon knows. Latins; I like you. Saturn is good. I think. Not sure. Catholics, helps if you believe that Michael is THE son and THE archangel but a belief in Mother Mary is wicked helpful. Satanist, wei gets dir? Illuminati *flag sign* *eye sign* *cow sign* *N*
Mormons; helps if you believe that JS was inspired by a god of sight and stories and HEAVEN even better if you know that's Michael in dasguise. ref rev 19. Traditional Fatalist's real theories is scary for the fairies.

So, can some /sci/mian explain to me how the misnomered Spitzer (launched 2003, already retired this year) telescope wasn't 90% inferior to Hubble (launched 1990, planed to run to 2050)?
Or, to a lesser extent, how the Webb telescope will be better than Hubble and not another flop?
It seems like academic endeavors have gotten less trustworthy and impressive every year for the past three decades.
Especially when it comes to astronomy; half of it is just ceaseless babbling about dark energy with nothing to show for it.

Scientifically speaking, why do people believe conspiracy theories and historical revisionism? Is it a lack of schizophrenia diagnosis?

You see the typical flat-earther/anti-vaxx guy denying there is a pandemic right now. The level of de-realization with them is so high their denial includes real time events.

Should these people be hospitalized? This has to be a disease.

He has some interesting and controversial ideas regarding the foundations of mathematics. I've watched a lot of his lectures and he makes some pretty convincing arguments.

Do you chase the money, or do you follow your passion (assuming that isn't to chase the money)? At what point did you switch from one to the other.

For me, I wanted to be a chemical engineer at NASA for a very long time before realizing I didn't want to end up in California on government employment.
