1. Microwave yourself to obtain radioactive DNA sample

2. Scrap four nasal samples into four tubes and treated with chemicals like acids

3. Do some jello stuffs the scientists do

4. X-ray the jello piece

If the jello shows lines in more than 2 wells, you have corona virus.
Please proceed to report yourself to the local emergancy unit and stay 6 feet away from the computer to avoid 5G virus spreading.
Clean your hands with soap upon touching frequent areas like the pp.

If there are no lines shown from the jello, you don't corona virus. You're probably crippled. So monitor your health daily to be alerted to possible symptoms to corona virus such as fever, tiredness, constant coughing or lost of smell.

Every time I solve a problem he has to go on about how my method was weird, long or unusual, why can't he just shut the fuck up if the proof is right? What more is there to say? What is it to you that I made my proof by contradiction instead of by cases?

I'll never forget when he asked us to prove that $\int_{a}^{a+{\pi}} |sin(x)| = c$ for any a, and he gave me shit for proving $\int_{a}^{a+{\pi}} |sin(x)| = | \int_{n{\pi}}^{n{\pi}+{\pi}} sin(x) |$ first by fucking around with the absolute values.

More often than not, important chemists nowadays are also physicists and engineers, so the branding is all off.

They didn't put a pair of features on it which speak the same design language, or any design language at all. Even the texture and colour couldn't have possibly been chosen any worse. If it was like some seamless white blob it would have even been easier to clean and more visible.One example, the base of it is slimmer before the cut-out than the head. Every normal thinking person would have made these two sections the same widthThen again the lights, shape, positioning and colour are all horrible and the panel gaps look insanely cheap.

Can true /sci/ patricians compare NJ Wildberger and john gabriel?
If ya got other good sources, that'd be nice.

I'm a 22yo man. I'm not afraid of anyone or anything, I take risks, and if I die, I die. I live in a safe neighborhood in a safe country. I have no worries right now in life or past trauma. I woke from a nightmare a few moments ago with my heart fucking racing, and I'm still lying here, heart slightly elevated and on edge my dark room.
Is their ever an age when nightmares aren't the most terrifying thing you'll ever encounter? Do apex predators and kings have nightmares?

Does anyone else ever wonder about what there was before the big bang? It kind of seems ominous to me, because we don’t actually know what there was before it. People always talk about how we’re replaceable and meaningless in the grand scheme of the universe, but how do we know that the universe itself isn’t replaceable, that one day the big bang will go off again and our universe will be destroyed, most likely replaced with a new one? Are there any remnants of things before the big bang in our universe?
