His prof went over the math and confirmed, had your retarded ass bothered to read the article you might have known that.
Make your own thread Mr. I'm so smart and enlightened.
>discussing science is now dudeweedlmao
So the kid re-invented the Novikov self-consistency principle...
Did nobody check for prior art?

Even if agendaless gentiles, you know he's just playing the media for notoriety and knows better than this shit.
It's a pop science article / human interest piece on a student wondering if scenario X could be the case and then working out that yes, scenario X can be the case. Yes, there are implications, but those implications are something discussed among other time travel systems, mainly in science fiction.
There's little discussion to be had aside from circlejerking about how enlightened we are for understanding the information presented, which is just the base noise of /sci/. Here, it equates to nothing. This is a nothing thread.
Can an arbitrarily large object tunnel through an arbitrarily thick barrier just by going arbitrarily fast, so length contraction is enough to get the barrier thickness down below the object's Compton wavelength?
Scientifically speaking, what pushes young people to become neets?
Parents not teaching their kids how to succeed and instead depending on the school system to do so (even though it fails).
>brb mom works in some service office position, nothing to teach me >dad works as a mechanic but never once has taken me aside to teach me anything about cars >can't remember a single time in my life where my parents taught me anything, other than the obligatory father teaching to drive (bare minimum imo)
And what do you get? People like me, sitting at home with 13 years of public schooling and 5 years of university who don't know how to do anything and are self conscious about how the only things they know are things that everyone knows.
If you are only making minimum wage but have the ability to be diagnosed as disabled it's more worth it to be a neet as you will essentially have the same lifestyle. If you have a large inheritance but your job only lets you save 1000 dollars a month it's more worth it be a neet then to work 40 hours a week.
I can not. I'm too ashamed of how ugly I am to sit in a waiting room with others. I will have an anxiety attack.
Only if your dad was chad. If your dad bailed on white women because he couldn’t compete and saw a poor lower status immigrant woman as “easy pickings” you’ll probably end up a resentful autist with a pug nose and no other discernible facial definition.
Post-scarcity being a literal pipe dream, interstellar travel being pragmatically impossible and jumping to another goldilocks planet once we ruin this one off the table, humanity must begin to colonize the planets and moons around us in order to survive. But terraforming such barren wastelands will take immense resources, and to transport such will take serious cargo space. So what kind of vehicles do you envision being developed to transport freight and people across the solar system?
If I’m the 100billionth human, can I conclude from this that there’s a 90% chance there won’t be more than another 900 billion humans?
Fuck off you condescending idiot
Lindy Effect. Too tired to do the computation sry op
I have done some math on it a year or so ago.
But 100billion people. Is basically the threshold of everyone rationing fresh water supply. And that's if everyone drinks the 64oz of water a day to stay fully hydrated. Which from personal experience drinking fresh water daily and watching others drink fresh water daily. Is that alot of people drink. Probably 24-40oz of water on average. And that there are some days people drink an abundance of fresh water. Such that they break 100oz for the day. For me I have had one day.. of pure desire of drinking bottled water. I had drunken 13 bottles of 16.9oz. In the Span of 4-6hours. After bottle 13. I looked up water poisoning. And found something roughly of 260oz. Being at lethal levels. Because I felt weird an woozy.. the 13bottles. Came out to 219.7oz of water. And I made sure not to drink any more that day. And asked co workers not to let me. One co worker said maybe I felt bad because of average bottled water doesn't have electrolytes. Which may have been the case. But even so.. water poisoning would still be in effect wether the water had electrolytes or not This is one reason I am glad math and the internet exist. And also as a dumb kid. I went probably 6 years only drinking soda/pop/cokes and chocolate milk. And rarely ever drank fresh water alone. But there still exist fresh water in these products. But as for land mass habitation.. i do not know the limit of. But at 7billion people... we are in the early stages of overpopulation. But no where near threatening levels. 30-40 billion.. is where it might become an real issue to discuss and plan for. If we break 100billion. At that point is we can determine is human life span isn't dependent on fresh water intake. That 900billion might be possible if the land mass can support it.
And for land mass example. If you take the square milage of florida, convert it to square feet. Then divide by 7billion.(the rough population) that everyone gets roughly 210 square feet. Which is roughly a 15ft by14ft room. . And that the USA legal limit of personal space. Is a 10ft radious. That no one would be I. Anyone's personal space. On ground level alone.
And my creative writing teacher told my class. If you take everyone in the world and stood them in 1ft by 1ft square they couldn't fill up florida. Which is why I used it as an example. It just didn't dawn on me what he ment until 8 monthes later. Imagine the rest of the worlds size compared to florida. All that land that can be used for farming or cattle. Which is why companies have no issue cutting down trees in rainforest. Because they have people that run the numbers and understand this. People only learn what they are taught and what they experience. And some teachers take the time to teach what they think is pertinent not so much anything related to the subject.
Once I made the example of a random natural number generator that can generate all numbers between 1 and an upper bound N.
You get one roll and 100 billion comes up. Then you could estimate N with with a confidence interval C.I. with the formula (100bn/N)<(1 - C. I.) There's 50% of chance than N<200bn, 75% that N<400bn etc. This assuming the upper limit of the teorethical number of humans that can be born tends to infinity, but whatever. In the same way, you could make other estimates such as: knowing that we have been space faring for 60 years, try to estimate for how longer we will be etc.
Time doesn't exist because electromagnetism doesn't experience time.
Dude, time only makes sense to the human brain. That's the problem with human brains, it is limited to what it can't experience. Somehow we can experience time but other animals can't. Maybe there is a lot more going on but our brains simply can't comprehend it. You ever think about that?
It only doesn't "experience" time in the sense that it simply has no moving parts.
get off the weed and do something better with your time
>>12162519 >we can experience time but other animals can't
You got the whole "relativity" part wrong. Time doesn't slow down when you move fast. It only appears to pass slower to an _outside observer_.
thoughts on this guy? some anon said he was a crank but he never backed that up. looking for an honest review.
this is a good argument and
it works as an offensive against lubos.

>The story spread in public media, prompting Niedermaier to offer an apology to the Bogdanovs, admitting that he had not read the papers firsthand. >the Bogdanovs released an email containing apparently supportive statements by Laurent Freidel, then a visiting professor at the Perimeter Institute. Soon after, Freidel denied writing any such remarks, >Jackiw defended the thesis:
All these were ideas that could possibly make sense. It showed some originality and some familiarity with the jargon. That's all I ask.
>I had given a favorable opinion for Grichka's defense, based on a rapid and indulgent reading of the thesis text. Alas, I was completely mistaken. The scientific language was just an appearance behind which hid incompetence and ignorance of even basic physics.
People tripping over their dicks left and right.
But the Bogdanovs found out what happened before the big bang
The Bogdanovs' research program is not even close to as good as mine.
Your mistake is not publishing in French first
I refuse to believe that the Twin Paradox isn't a paradox.
You can literally pick either twin and say that the other is the one travelling away.
Even if one twin is accelerating we can just say that twin is stationary and the other is the one accelerating away.
This is fucking bullshit!
but relative to what? who decides who stays young?
>>12161696 >Even if one twin is accelerating we can just say that twin is stationary and the other is the one accelerating away.
A person on the ground doesn't experience acceleration like a person in a rocket does. It should be obvious who is accelerating and how much.
Yes but if we make the person on the rocket the reference point then the one on the ground is accelerating.
Two points in the universe are just two points there's nothing special about the one that is on the ground and the one that is on the rocket.
How wide are the genetic differences between races? Biofags only please. I know skin color is a fairly irrelevant gene, since most races cover most tones anyway, I mean in terms of intelligence, mental resilience, bone structure, and muscle health. It's hard to find studies that actually care about answering the question, since they're all trying to disprove racism, which may or may not be valid.
How would I go about finding this information if I can't get access to it from google?
*cling cling cling*
Ahem... Fuck niggers, and fuck jannies.
Even full genomes correlate with ancestral SNPs. Those who say that internal differences within genetic clusters are more significant than outside of it are only looking at a dozen of markers when there are millions available. Ancestral services would have no way of operating if there was such overlap of populations.
And sure, while most of those markers do not have an inherent benefit or malus, there are still markers that could easily be defining.
What a dumb take on those PCAs from you. I don't even support splitting of humans into subspecies but the PCs are constructed by looking at hundreds of thousands of SNPs, not a couple genes. Mind you that PCAs can only be three dimensional at best which doesn't exactly give credit to the multitude of ways different populations are different from one another. For example Polynesians or Native Americans have drifted a lot from East Asians.
Also the genetic distance between North Africans, West Asians and Europeans are not surprising considering that these groups have deep ancestry that diverged far back in the Paleolithic, further separated by drift even when geneflow has occurred between those three regions ever since.
Why is /sci/ so shit on this topic while /his/ has the ball rolling? And why are people so fixated on IQ here? These threads shouldn't be allowed here.
A nice illustration of an old meme.
Yeah, just one, if I blend up a bunch of chicken nuggets and enema them up my ass, can I get the same macronutrients without having to swallow them normally?
