>Regarding the inadequacy of Schwarzenegger, McAllister studied the remains of "La Ferrassie 2", a Neanderthal lass discovered in a French cave in 1909. She boasted ten per cent more muscle than modern European men, and her upper arm strength was more than enough to "slam him to the table without a problem”.
How tight do you think Neanderthal pussy was? Like there’s probably a reason why Europeans have so much Neanderthal DNA, and I think it’s probably how extremely tight your average Neanderthal woman would be to your average Cro-Magnon Woman. Tightest pussy in human history.

Neanderthal pussies were probably a little looser than humans, actually. They had bigger heads and thicker bodies than us, which means the birth canal would have had to be bigger. On the other hand, males probably had small penises as an adaptation to the cold enviroment. It's possible that neanderthal women preferred the bigger homo sapiens penis. Neanderthal males had an advantage over the homo sapiens males as they were swol as fuck and had massive tongues and fingers. So basically anytime the two groups was hornytime.

>> No.15469908

Given that European men are the strongest in the world, I am surprised neanderthal woman were around or more powerful. For context, in any race, I believe the average man is stronger than 99% of women.

"Replication crisis" is a just politically correct way of saying "outright fraud is common in science"
>Science is in the throes of what is sometimes called the replication crisis, so named because a big hint that a scientific study is wrong is when other teams try to repeat it and get a different result. While some fields, such as psychology, initially seemed more liable than others to generate such “fake news”, almost every area of science has since come under suspicion. An entire field of genetics has even turned out to be nothing but a mirage. Of course, we should expect testing to overturn some findings. The replication crisis, though, stems from wholesale flaws baked into the systems and institutions that support scientific research, which not only permit bad scientific practices, but actually encourage them. And, if anything, things have been getting worse over the past few decades.

>What is considered positive contribution?
Our definition of "positive contribution" is the submission of substantial, helpful, friendly, and humorous posts to the boards, along with the uploading of quality images and files. We feel that positive contribution should be treated as a way of donating to 4chan without actually having to fork over cash.
>Why is contribution so important?
Contribution is important because it is what drives this website. If we didn't have a dedicated pool of users who frequently contribute, we'd be yet another stagnant run of the mill forum. But we aren't. By having an increasing number of diverse and quality contributors, 4chan becomes more unique, interesting, and enjoyable to use.
>How can I become a good contributor?
It's really quite easy. If you have something to add to a topic: reply. If you have an interesting, high quality, neat, rare, etc. picture: upload it! Share your mind and image collections with us. Don't just leech! Give back to the community which you take from. It's a simple and effective way to grow the site. Before contributing, make sure you're acquainted with the rules.
>What is "shitposting"?
Shitposting is "knowingly contributing low quality, off-topic, or ill intentioned posts."

>In our analysis of archival records on 89 female chimpanzees, whose cycling and menstruation had been recorded as part of a breeding program, we found that menstrual cycles continued in the 20 apes that lived beyond the age of 39 years (Lacreuse et al. 2008). Three apes continued to cycle in their 6th decade, and menopause (defined as survival for at least 1 year in good health without menstrual cycles) was observed in only one female at about the age of 56 years. Our observations are consistent with recent data on production of live offspring in older female chimpanzees. For example, although fertility in wild chimpanzees declined steadily through adulthood, they gave birth as late as their 50th year—essentially up until the maximum life span in these populations (Nishida et al. 2003; Emery Thompson et al. 2007).

Chimps can experienxe menopause, but it is rare.

I didn't write that, but it is essential, and its deficiency fucks you up. It seems its deficiebcy causes two rather distinct syndromes for an unclear reason, possibly calcium intake. Mixed with a high calcium diet it leads to a visible disfigurement, near blindness and insanity, but it has a much milder effect with low calcium diet, with mainly nearsightedness and diabetes, at least initially so. It may have some effect on "aging" especially because of the loss of facial bones.

"The CMB is uniform across the entire Universe"

And what is it emanating from?

"From space itself"

So you are saying that space itself is emanating radiation?


So this is evidence of the aether. You are detecting the radiation of the aether - a uniform substance that permeates the entire Universe.

"No, the CMB is emanating from empty space"

So you are saying that empty space has a substance capable of emanating radiation.

"Correct. Empty space, nothing, has a radiation field"

>To be clear: the "conspiracy theories" I have been espousing in this thread are NOT how I used to think... right in wrong, it's simply the only way I can rationize the outright harrassment that the cosmological community directs at free thinkers. I really thought they were good people! I DID trust the science, until I learned that they essentially terrorize anyone with quirky ideas. That is NOT how I was taught science is to be!

And now here I am... speaking out into the void. The last remaining place where we can speak our true thoughts because in a world of lies only the anonymous and nameless can be free. How remarkable that only by stripping ourselves of our humanity and becoming faceless, nameless screens can we speak about matters of science as we truly believe it to be.

its a false premise. you have an identity, you have a race, you have a gender. people from other races and from the opposite gender will always want to abuse you if you give them the opportunity.
if you think you can be all things to all people you are badly mistaken. if you're not willing to favor your own kind over others then you are betraying them, other races will never treat you as an equal, they will favor their own kind, if you fail to do the same for your people then you will be all alone.
you've probably been fed a lot of equality and melting pot propaganda, if you were dumb enough to buy into it then you'll suffer the consequences.

Even if it's not directly used, it will turn up in some papers to prove certain things. Calculus is so fundamental that it has to be known for you to have any sort of scientific literacy. Even bio majors study it.

Still, of all things EE students have to learn, why focus on math? Anybody can rip a copy of one of those Schaum's Outlines books for Calculus and Differential Equations and learn to solve all of that fancy stuff like line integrals, systems of linear differential equations, Laplace transforms, and Fourier series. It's just repetitive chunking and spitting out patterns. Differentiate this, integrate that, move some terms to the left and to the right, substitute for u and v, use this identity, etc.
It's not exactly painting the Mona Lisa. Anybody who's got a bit of spare time a lot of boredom can learn to do that quite easily.
You might be able to argue that some modern physics stuff (ex. quantum tunnelling or spectroscopy) is more difficult than that, and that semiconductor device design is even more difficult than anything electronic repair guys will ever have to do, but engineering math is just something petty to brag about. Calculus is what poor performing children get scared with so they'll get funnelled over to the Humanities department, but really, anybody who's not literally retarded or a junkie who spends all day having sex with foreign students should be capable of passing Calculus (and any other math for engineers class, such as linear algebra and Statistics) by putting in the right amount of effort.

Sure! Here are 20 things that are generally considered to be objective:

The boiling point of water at sea level is 100 degrees Celsius.
The speed of light in a vacuum is approximately 299,792,458 meters per second.
The Earth revolves around the Sun.
Oxygen is necessary for human respiration.
The chemical formula for water is H2O.
The capital of France is Paris.
The atomic number of carbon is 6.
The force of gravity on Earth is approximately 9.8 meters per second squared.
The formula for calculating the area of a rectangle is length multiplied by width.
The melting point of iron is approximately 1,538 degrees Celsius.
The human body has 206 bones.
The formula for calculating the circumference of a circle is 2π multiplied by the radius.
The chemical symbol for gold is Au.
The speed limit on a particular road is 50 miles per hour.
The formula for converting Celsius to Fahrenheit is F = (C × 9/5) + 32.
The distance between two points can be calculated using the Pythagorean theorem.
The moon orbits the Earth.
The sum of angles in a triangle is always 180 degrees.
The chemical reaction between hydrogen and oxygen produces water.
The formula for calculating the volume of a sphere is (4/3)πr3, where r is the radius.
While these statements are generally accepted as objective facts, it's important to note that new scientific discoveries or revisions to existing knowledge can occasionally update our understanding of the world.

So, /sci/entific facts are what is considered objective, and it is not even that objective.

AI solved a new logic puzzle which had never existed before prompting it. How amazing is that?

It's not just predicting what the answer should be, it's capable of its own independent thinking. Just a little bit more powerful version of this and it would solve the Riemann hypothesis and Fermat's Last Theorem on its own.
