What's the point of females being weak? Wouldn't it help survival of offspring if both parents could hunt and protect?
Harems did exist, there were a greater number of beta males than beta females. Therefore even harems of just 2-3 women would occasionally occur. This bell curve represents those tribal dating strategy perfectly. It's not as great as gorillas but the greater male evolution pressure still existed.
They're comparatively physically weaker on average. That was selected for because women have to conserve resources for childbirth so more of their body mass has to be dedicated to fat.
difference between sexes in humans is actually a lot less compared to other mammals. if we were 100% socially monogamous then the difference would be a lot smaller but a good percentage were polygynous so that's why there are differences today. the difference will probably grow larger thanks to the increase in polygyny
men being larger and stronger comes at a cost - shorter life span more heart disease and so one. Females dont need this.
why are children being weak?
why are incels being so weak without sex?
Embryo selection for IQ is already happening underground. I personally know an elite who recently paid for this process. Here is what will happen. Most people will succeed in banning embryo selection, elites will simply evade the bans, and after a few generations the IQ gap between elites and nonelites will be so significant that your chances of joining the elite world as a non-embryo-selected person will be literally zero. The power differential will be greater than any in history. All because people moronically pushed to ban embryo selection without realizing how easy it is to evade laws if you have money.
>>13440631 >Intelligence is literally just brain health.
Wish more retards understood this. There's no such thing as a brain that's too efficient, just like there's no such thing as a heart that's too efficient. Our brains, like our hearts, are massively underoptimized. Hypergeniuses are coming and they will flatten us tards like insects.
I actually believe this:
>Be me >Above average IW >Know a superrich girl(daughter of a multimillionaire)(she once told me that shes infertile) >Be good friends with her and pretty much share every happening in life.(we fucked once, but it never felt right to do a relationship) >She moves into different country to marry some guy she met travelling >Weird quite sexy girl appears out of nowhere who wants to sleep with me, have sex for several months, start fucking without condom, she always takes weird embryolike stance lying on her back after i came. >Mfw this pose is used to increase chance of getting preggy >A few weeks later she ends it, i didnt care much >A few months later i get news that the friend i know but moved away got preggy(we have less contact, cuz different country, so we write maybe once a month). Anyways i have never seen a pic of her beeing preggy. And asking for one would be weird lel, especially after birth >Ffw 2 years >Child has same haircolour like i do >Iooks kinda like me >Get super well along with it
The other option is that when i fucked her that night where we were drunk(condom slipped off cuz she had only medium sized once kekw) she got preggy, froze egg, didnt say something cuz she rich n shit obviously and wanted to get to know me first but baka never ended up in relationship with her.
Then she just used egg to have child.(which all makes no sense though why would she say shes infertile while shes actually notbkekw)
So the other option is they sent a genetically suitable person that is part of elites, gets herself preggy by me, child born and raised by elitarian multimillionairedaughter.
That's wild. Also not a good thing to fuck strangers. You have no idea what they're up to.
>>13434053 >Power hunger (sociopathy) is a sign of nigger genes.
High IQ people just want to enjoy their life because they know you can’t take resources with you when you die. Also any arguments against this consist of nigger logic

Prove me wrong
I like to read math books but skip all the proofs
Not necessarily the best way to do it, but I am not the brightest star myself and could be wrong!
This, also I skip the exercises. Takes too much time to read otherwise
i dont really care about proofs i just want the results and practical applications.
yes i have a bachelors in math and i dont deserve it
That's what the proof is for you dingus.
i just read a theorem, understand the intuition and motivation and then make sure there's a big block of text prefixed with "Proof:" and suffixed with the square. that's all i need
If a person has access to a good meal after several months of famine, his brain works at 100% capacity instantly?
If not, how long does it take for the brain to recover?
Let's take an example: a man eats between 300-700 calories a day for four months, it is obvious that during that time lapse his brain will function below its true capacities. Then the man has access to a nice dinner. How does this affect his brain?
Pic no related
Take whatever you're assuming and tune it to be 80% more pessimistic. Also, I'm sure permanent brain damage is also always a possibility
Also, you can get very sick or die if you go months with almost no food and then eat a lot. You have to slowly titrate back up to normal intake
back in the days when famine in Africa was regular news, I heard that an extended famine would cause irreversible brain damage to the children.

It is known within certain circles that China and Russia have far surpassed American military technology (Tic Tacs, microwave weapons, etc.) and are planning to decapitate the United States. My question is simple. Can America reverse its technological decline without fixing its dysgenic problems, in time to prevent its total physical annihilation? In other words, is America's sky-high mutational load, as referenced in the amerimutt meme, a permanent barrier to achieving any sort of military hegemony again?

>>13437252 >Not hard to game out the next few centuries.
Not hard at all. And the kicker is we (USA) don’t even have to do anything about China except wait.
Nothing has to be done. It was the natural order. We fed them freedom and they gorged on it. We fed them culture and they changed for us. We fed them extravagance and they lost their will to work. They sold themselves out to the all mighty dollar and now they're scrambling as companies leave their country because business is better elsewhere. They forgot to have children so the cheap labor will dry up. They don't export culture so there will be no immigrants to come in and take over as cheap labor. All that will happen is that they will grow old, their children will starve to death and the world will pretend not to notice while they desperately lash out at their neighbors in an attempt to not die. Then after all is done we will sail up to their ports and force them to spread their asses yet again so we can do it all over again and they will like it.
Hahaha this cope. You have no idea what's in store. They are restructuring their industry to avoid becoming a stupid deindustrialized wasteland like the US.
The copes on you. They (CCP) won’t survive another decade. It’s going to be a glorious sight to behold as a new cultural recolution takes power and decapitates the current leadership in spectacular fashion. They are scared as fuck, scrambling to use as much technological and censorship as they can, but it’s jot enough. Chinese people are waking up to it.
Xi is setting it up to be fully AI run so when he dies it can have the most efficient decision making. They already have AI to make decisions in certain cases.
get a load of this retard
>have to decide what to study when 18yo
>if I have to study something and since I won't be able to know everything (every piece of knowledge), I need to study an absolute science
>physics is the science most similar to this, the most general and also fundamental to the rest of sciences
>but wait, this is actually a philosophical question, I should study philosophy; furthermore there are parcels of reality that physics cannot comprehend and I also like to write poetry
How do I cope with the feeling of having wasted so many years?
If you're going the humanities route, study a real degree that will make you a functioning human being: gender studies, queer theory, or critical theory.
Science has yet to understand everything. Philosophy is a coping mechanism for dealing with what science has yet to uncover.
Not the philosophy is bad, "cope" has a negative connotation on the internet, but I don't intent it to mean that philosophy is pointless. It helps us feel better, but it does not contribute to our understanding of the universe.
A better way of describing it: Science is the pursuit of truth; philosophy is a veneer of truth. How convenient that philosophy does not require any kind of mathematics, a system of logic in which the laws of the universe can be perfectly described.
I hope you're not talking about college majors.
Considering the factors in overhauling our entire standard of living to stop climate change, should we put more money into mitigating the effects of climate change instead?
It definitely looks cheaper and more doable than literally stopping the ongoing global industrial revolution.
>>13438906 >stop climate change >inducing climate change >still no results outside of some locality
weather and climate do change, but not because of Humans or our actions, positive or negative that be
>>13438936 >carbon capture
more forests then
read about Rome and what happened in Europe/Asia after Rome in the West fall, industralization did bring a lot of cheap products, but emissions fell even in 1800s compared to 400 AD
anthropogenic effects on climate change are well documented. you are incorrect in your assessment.
I don't think anyone is under the illusion oil use will be completely supplanted, but there are alternative materials to plastic. I think it's fairly undeniable that renewable energy will have a major impact on the modern rate of oil consumption.
>>13438906 >muh global warming
>muh climate change
Hey /sci/, my father is getting old and needs to use catheters. He's moving to a new province soon which won't cover the majority of the cost of the catheters like Alberta does (75%). Does anyone know where to get a knockoff or off-brand of the following catheter from somewhere online? If this is the wrong board please direct me elsewhere.
"Covidien Dover Vinyl Urethral Catheter"
I don't know any knock off brand, but try to avoid shady stuff, keep in mind that catheters have to be sterile
its time to give your father the final gift

Can anybody tell me in brief what's actually the objective of CERN, how it was established and what has it achieved after years worth of heavy engineering, huge collaboration between hundreds of scientists experiments, research and funding.
Also why is CERN at centre of so many sci-fi paranormal conspiracy theories, books etc, why is the Vatican collaborating with CERN and why do they have an idol of some hindoo God on their premises?

Why are you even on this board?
The LHC is the largest and most complex machine humans ever built. It is the perfect plot device. Added to that comes it mission of figuring out the universe no matter what, like some supervillain goal. How can it NOT be a doomsday device? Hell, it doesn't just fit into "a lab" somewhere, it's machine that is literally kilometres long and underground, adding to the mystique.
You mean white people? I agree
