>last week of lectures before finals >stress is pretty well built up >in biology lecture discussing enzymes >I'm picturing an enzyme facilitating a reaction >realize that each individual atom would be shaking quite a bit >realize that the reaction happens very quickly >picture a massive enzyme spazzing the fuck out and chomping down on wiggly substrates >for some reason this is the funniest thing I've ever thought of >I absolutely lose my shit laughing >hardly functional enough to leave the room >don't go to the lecture for the rest of the term I don't think I ever really recovered from that.

Any geologists here? Undergad here. Im combining my two final projects in glacial geology and remote sensing. I need to choose three glaciers in the same general area with similar properties, but different lengths and high fluctuation of ice thickness throughout the last ~50 years. Id like to document the correlation between size, ice thickness, and response rate. Due to high availability of remote sensing datasets in North America, id like to stick with Alaskan glaciers. I need to minimize all the variables that influence response rates in order to collect more accurate data as well, so this should take care of climate differences. Columbia and Mendenhall both have extreme ice thickness loss which is best for documenting using ASTER, but theyre relatively different from one another. Im looking for possibly 2-4 glaciers that fit this description. They dont all have to be the same type of glacier, but i think keeping them all valley glaciers would make things easier as well. Any ideas? inb4 >geology >2012 >real science

So what does /sci/ science with? Computer science major here and I pretty much main line caffeine. I just started college /sci/ I'm afraid. Any good match ups for particular disciplines? Heard acid was good for topology.

/sci/ I need your sage advice Does anyone have a good equation editor they can recommend? I need to put equations in a Microsoft Word document Everything I find in Google is absolute shit I'm using Office 2003 if that helps .webm unrelated

Would it be possible to make a pi base system, as apposed to our current base 10? Would there be any advantages to such a system? There are no reputable sources on the subject, even Wiki let me down.

Do you guys think it's possible to raise your IQ ? Only idea I have is to become a cardiovascular expert, thus oxygenating your brain much more. Let's say I am fucking lazy, do you think there will be any noticeable change if I get very (cardio) fit ? More ideas welcome! Note 1 : We are knowing that /sci/ hates IQ threads! Please do not notice! Note 2: /b/ doesn't have a clue!

If there was somehow a way to travel faster than light, and the universe is expanding outward, what would happen when you reached the end of the universe and went beyond?

Aye /sci/entists I'm trying to do some self study and I'm running into a snag. When doing the rational parameterization of the unit circle we get the solution to the quadratic term when solving for x(t) that is \frac{-2t^2 \pm \sqrt{4t^4 -4(1+t^2)(t^2 -1)}}{2(1+t^2)} This then reduces to \frac{-t^2 \pm 1}{(1+t^2)} What I don't understand is how we decide to only take the \frac {1-t^2}{1+t^2} term instead of of the \frac {-1-1t^2}{1+t^2} term from the plus minus as our x(t) parameterization. There must be some bit of logic about the domain/range of the two terms that makes the addition term rather than the subtraction term the correct one but I'm just not seeing it. I'd be really appreciative of any help. This isn't homework by the way I'm trying to do a parameterization of all the conics and then go on to parameterize some specific cubics just for general practice. Pic obviously related

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.

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?

Undergrad Research

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?

First time on /sci/. Don't know if you guys are any more capable of having conversations than other boards but here it goes. Looking for scientific research and legit statistics ONLY about the risks of getting/not getting vaccinated as an infant please. I know the emotional arguments for both sides so just leave the fear mongering/ anecdotes/ hate speech out. I'm a new mom and am really surprised at how hard it is to have this conversation (especially with professionals!) and how much fear and social outcasting is used as a means of responding to an attempt to make a conscience parenting decision. If vaccinating is the right choice, I'd rather make that decision off of the best information that we have available rather than out of fear of admitting and curing my ignorance on the issue. Spiel over, thanks for helping out.

I have a question that I've always wondered about. What other types of life can (theoretically) exist? The more exotic, or different from earth biology, the better. I'm completely ignorant of any sort of advanced biology terms, in fact, I'm not very keen at all about the human body. I do know that most (or more likely, all) living things on Earth are made mostly of carbon, DNA or RNA controls their structures in one way or another, and that we use water as a solvent. I believe this is called biochemistry, right? Correct me if I'm wrong. I'm fascinated by the idea of different 'biochemistries' existing somewhere, but is it really possible, and if so, what are some neat examples?
