Hi /sci/ Please take this test and post a screenshot of your results. http://www.4degreez.com/misc/personality_disorder_test.mv Really interested in gauging the emotional health of my fellow /sci/ fags.

If you guys are so smart, how come you haven't found the theory of everything yet? Physics: 1 Science: 0

I had a dream that I was in some kind of store. I eventually walked up to a shelf that had these simple shapes formed of fuzzy black rope-like material hung from strings on it. When I touched near the end of segments, they would move to wrap around my hand. When I I jiggled the strings they hung from, they'd squirm around and keep swinging for quite a while. Does this sound like anything that already exists or might be possible soon?

Hey guys maybe anyone could help me with this ? (photo) im just learning and im trying to test this program which finds biggest number (as you can see 12) but the problem is when i try to call for this function and i input 12 parameters i get an error saying that i inputted wrong amount of parameters so maybe anyone could tell me how to call for the function ? (it's just the prototype I'll be calling 12 numbers from file later)

What is it about blurring the edges of a picture then sharpening the center that makes it look fake and miniature?

I'm kind considering doing a PhD in engineering mainly because I have no idea what else to do with my life. I don't plan on being a researcher but I am happy delaying real life by 3 to 4 years. My questions: 1. I am doing an integrated masters. Until just less than halfway through my final bachelors year I was a very good student (I even got an award for my first year results and a scholarship later on) but my motivation and work ethic plummeted to joke levels (after being nothing special initially) and haven't recovered. I didn't do well on my bachelors thesis (got a lower second). I'm in my masters year now. Half of my credits in my first term are from a course where you have to do two research papers. In my first one, worth 30 % of the course's grade, I procrastinated a tonne, handed in utter crap, and miraculously got an OKish grade (upper second). My second one is due in just under two weeks which is enough time to work extremely hard and hand in something reasonable. I mention those because they're my only research experiences and I'll end up being nothing special with respect to those. However, I'm pretty sure I'll get a 1st for my degree overall. How fucked / unfucked am I? I am too embarrassed to ask any of my lecturers for references, although if I put in a huge amount of effort with this current assignment then I'd be ok from an academic point of view with this lecturer. 2. I see lots of specific 3 year projects to apply to. I see EPSRC 4 year PhDs. I know what these mean, but any thoughts on the different options? Also how smart do you have to be to do the below ones (for example)? http://www.eng.ed.ac.uk/postgraduate/research/projects/clustering-mesostructure-and-non-classical-crystal-nucleation-liquids http://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/graduate/courses/systems-biology 3. If I apply for varied things, it'll be obvious that I have no clue about anything. How bad will my referees view that?

apparently the air we breather only has a 21% oxygen in it. Would there be any benefits to regularly inhaling a slightly higher concentration of oxygen. like, every night for a couple hours breathe in from an oxygen tank. >pic not related

hey /sci/ I like building robots and want a career in robotics. what is the best degree to pursue that will give me access to the field? Currently doing CS and I learn electronics on the side from online sources. I've been using the ti launchpad to build little robots and lately I've been getting my feet wet with an FPGA. Can I go into robotics with a CS degree, or will EE or CE be better? What will the best path? thanks

Hi, do gluons have some resembles to the two components of an electromagnetic wave? Like, a color part and a colormagnetic part?

I'm a british guy with a Zoology BSc and I'm looking to carry on studying. I really don't feel like I've learnt enough yet, and I'm looking forward to whatever comes next. My only problem is I don't really have a set idea for what I want- only that I want to stay in academia. People who got a similar degree to me, where did it take you?

You are a university professor that is teaching an introduction to C++ class. The semester is about to end and you are assigning your students a final project. What project would impress you the most?

Whenever mathematics vs physics is described I find myself siding with mathematics every single time, despite being a physics student. I tried taking mathematical physics because I hate handwavey physics using "intuition" and guesswork. I'm too autistic to know where I can guess and where no, whereas most of my peers seem to love just taking information without questioning. The trouble is I don't enjoy the mental masturbation of mathematics with no obvious applications. Is there some kind of middleground? I tried taking mathematical physics classes but it's like the worst of both worlds. I can't keep up with the mathematical rigour and I'm terrible at the physical "intuition" and guesswork.

Undergrad Research

27 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I'll be graduating next May and my tentative goal is to do research. I currently have no research experience though. One of my professors mentioned he was looking for undergrads but he wanted juniors or seniors with at least a year left. I have about 6 months left. Is this the view held by most professors? I realize it takes a good amount of time to actually train undergrads so there would be no point in taking someone like me. I did find a PhD student who would be willing to take me. The only problem is his field is not related to mine at all. Should I try and email some professors who are in fields closer to mine or not, since as I said earlier they wouldn't want to waste resources on an undergrad who will likely be gone in 6 months? Or should I just go ahead and work with the PhD student in an unrelated field?
