The enforcement of political correctness and censorship is also present in science and academia, even more than in the popular fields of politics. Scientific discoveries that threaten the rule of plutocracy that could empower the population are routinely suppressed and exorcised.

All true, but politically incorrect scientific discoveries pass through five stages:

First, they are ignored.

Second, they are ridiculed.

Third, they are debunked with false arguments, buried, and violently opposed.

Fourth, they are plagiarised and stolen by authority bullies.

Fifth, they are accepted as being self-evident, attributed to a plagiarist.

What about agendas?

I'm in a water class right now and one of the first assignments was water usage from some dubious website that claims a hamburger takes six million tons of water to make. Some students are like "omg I can't believe I'm not vegan" while my professor posts a picture of his flushless self-composting toilet. There's a connection between veganism and liberals but I'm not sure what it is, maybe to undermine culture or lactose tolerant envy. I've had a few other situations where veganism was promoted in the classroom.

I had one girl of some semitic origin in my class that wants to force birth control on all minor girls, which shouldn't be an issue as most teenage girls don't get pregnant and this violates the free will of girls. She probably watches her ten brothers rape little girls and thinks it's normal. Imagine her becoming a politician one day and forcing drugs into your daughter so to make rape more acceptable.

Tell me your classroom stories.



"water class"? What is that all about? I was a Uni student in 1980-ies, so I can't easily relate to your classroom stories today.

But I can offer you a piece of advice regarding veganism: it is not good for you unless you live in a very warm climate, and you are outdoors a lot on the sun. Even then, consumption of animal protein and fat, like milk products are highly advised if you want to stay healthy on the long run.

But of course if you eat milk products then you are not vegan anymore, which basically says that veganism is not healthy. It can be good for temporary cleansing fasts, but not as a healthy diet to live on for years.

The 'authorities' in corrupt schools might have an evil agenda if promoting veganism to their students. The strength and immune system of vegans will weaken after years and become sickly, which is good for the big pharmacy corporations.

Vegetarianism is healthy, but again only if you live in warm climates like India from where it originates. The reason again is the sun. People need a lot of regular vitamin D that is naturally created by the skin if it gets sufficient sunshine.

If you live in a cold climate like Alaska, Sweden, or Iceland, then you better follow their traditional diet, which gives you the needed vitamin D from animal fats, because you can't get it from the sun. Without enough vitamin D and A you will get weak and sick, your bones and teeth will deteriorate, and you will develop mental problems (like depression) as well, especially if you eat a lot of sugar.

But all this is off topic. How about we focus on electrostatics in this thread ?



>It is! The term ‘political correctness’ in this context refers to obeying and conforming to the dogmatic policies of academic establishment.

This isn't a dogmatic policy, it's called a scientific consensus. The people there genuinely believe the current scientific models work. And again, this isn't political in any way.

>The most often used method in academy is simply ignoring papers.

Just because people won't talk about your paper, doesn't mean they are trying to prevent your information from spreading. Censorship implies a deliberate attempt from another party to surpress information. If I post a shitty meme and no one bothers spreading it, that isn't censorship. It means no one thinks the information is worth spreading to others.

>There were also cases of active suppression, when shills on forums have attacked the paper with stupid irrelevant arguments, or when the forum moderators simply removed my posts about the subject.

Do you have examples to show of the last one, moderators removing your posts?

Your first example of active suppression isn't a good example too. That's people thinking your wrong and that they're right. They're engaging with your ideas.

Framing yourself as a victim on 8chan of all places won't get people to listen to you.



>It means no one thinks the information is worth spreading to others.

Hey fag! Don't speak for me! I do think that his paper is very much worth spreading. I am an electronic engineer and wanted real bad to show him his mistake. Just couldn't believe that a paradox can exist in electrostatics.

Read the paper. Actually only the first 16 pages, but could not find an error in it. I have solved the problem on my own, and got the same result. His claim about the paradox is correct, it does exist!

I am not spreading the meme, but I did send the links to my collegues and to some friends to take a look.

>That's people thinking your wrong and that they're right.

No. They are wrong!

>Framing yourself as a victim on 8chan of all places won't get people to listen to you.

You are an arrogant prick to speak in everybody's name, instead of reading the paper! STFU!



Fuck you and your crackpot paper. Everybody knows the standard model isn't the end all. There are a variety of problems that people are investigating. Nevertheless, the predication made by the standard model are incredibly precise.

Sending a paper to 100 scientists and waiting for a reply is exactly what a crackpot does. That isn't how science works.


So, … the Chinese landed a rover on the 'Dark' side of the Moon.

They claim the Moon rotates just once for each rotation around the sun. They say it is explained by the phenomenon of 'tidal locking.' If tidal locking is a thing, why is the Earth not tidally locked to the Sun?! Earth spins ~ 12 times each rotation around the Sun.

Any legitimate explanation for this? I have been looking but it seems physicists are busy with other stuff. (I am just a Chemist and Engineer - I don't get it)

There is no dark side of the moon. Try looking up at night, you always see the same face and sometimes it's dark sometimes it's lit.

Tidal locking happens because of friction bleeding away angular momentum. It takes a long time. Earth isn't there yet. For whatever reason moon locked faster.



The time it takes for the moon to orbit Earth is the same time it takes the moon to rotate. This is why it’s tidally locked.


>If tidal locking is a thing, why is the Earth not tidally locked to the Sun?!

Earth is to far from the Sun.

Tidal forces are the result of the inverse square law. The side facing the parent body has a slightly higher gravity than a point on the other side of the orbiting body. This results in net torque in the opposite direction of rotation.



>Earth spins ~ 12 times each rotation around the Sun.



I thought the Japanese already discovered that one side of the moon is heavier than the other which is why it always faces towards Earth.

I think there are plenty of people 'actually willing to help' in principle. The issue is the inherent complexity of the problem. There are few men (certainly very few on IBs) that have the skills to pursue a solution. /robowaifu/ itself has touched on many of these issues and in large part already exhausted the 'i'm working on the logo' phase of the process.

So get this. I look into the vaccine debate extensively. I look at all sides and I notice how all the anti-vaxxers are conspiracy theorists from conspiracy website circlejerks. I come to have faith in my country’s public health organization and all other countrie’s public health organizations and of course, my public schools, because the whole world’s public health orgs and schools teach the same thing in regards to the safety and effectiveness of vaccines… So I think I’m ready, and I can debate anyone with confidence.

Then a friend of my close friend says his cousin got some sort of trauma that resulted in a speech impediment, and all credible resources diagnosed it as a vaccine related injury…

My close friend informs me that this is proof vaccines are bad, and that I need to not be so gullible and do better research.

Doesn’t help that I’m fat and autistic and that anti vaxxer friend is in shape and never gets sick despite being a chain smoker.

Which brings us to today’s topic. What is the fine line between being educated and brainwashed? Has anyone else had an instance where reality seems to contradict what is taught in schools? Sometimes research and “educating” myself and others just makes me feel like the ignorant one. I feel useless no matter what I look into and what stance I try to uphold.

Lol, :-)) of course you are the disinfo shill, this is obvious! Only total retards, or paid disinfo shills would still promote vaccines, and attack dissenters, after reading all the pages that were linked here about the death caused by vaccination, and the scientific evidence presented by Dr. Judy A. Mikovits.

What faults am I supposed to point out in your nonsense gobbledygook comment >>5573 ? It is not worth a response! But here it is anyway for the sake of mentally challenged:

The harmfulness of vaccines has been proven by many studies, not just one, not just by one scientist, and they have been also supported by many reports about deaths, autism, and other diseases caused by the vaccines. Here is some introduction into the mountain of evidence:


> You also harm others around you by not taking the vaccines that have been in use for long time, since vaccines don't prove 100% protection if there are too many infected individuals in an area.

This stupid nonsense has been already debunked countless times. In short:

"If vaccination 'works' then the vaccinated have nothing to fear from those who choose to reject this medical intervention. Every person has the legally protected universal right of Informed Consent to accept or reject any medical intervention for any reason, or no reason at all.

You sure you guys are from here? You unironically sound like boomers.

Also the virus mentioned on the plageuthebook website is probably the Xenotropic murine leukemia virus-related virus, or XMRV for short. Some people think it could be the cause of cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, and a whole bunch of other shit. While some people think it was accidentally created in a lab and not an actual virus. Honestly not sure what the fuck it is.



>You sure you guys are from here? You unironically sound like boomers.

I am from planet earth, unlike some vaccine promoter shills here, who behave like aliens from Mars, hell bent to exterminate the population with forced vaccinations :-)

Whenever a new pathogen is discovered and starts to do havoc, you can be sure it did not appear from nothing overnight. It takes thousands of years for living beings to evolve on their own, and it is extremely unlikely that such new pathogens evolve naturally in such a short time-span.

Such new pathogens are deliberately developed in laboratories with an intent to sicken, and if possible kill of the majority of population. See AIDS, Agenda 21, Georgia Guide Stones, etc.

Evil things don't just appear from nothing 'by accident', they are created by evil minds! It is all part of a sinister agenda of the plutocracy.

By the time people learn the truth about XMRV, another 10 new pathogens will appear from nothing, 'by accident'…

The best we can do is to reject vaccines, use alternative natural medicine whenever possible, eat healthy food to stay healthy, and do at least a minimum physical exercise to keep the body fit. Don't depend on the medical system, or you are doomed!

I think its 95.

Has to be divisible by 5. so its either 5, 10, 15, 20 …

Starting with 5, every 15th number away i.e j(5*3)+5 numbers, you will get a number which both nmod3=2 and nmod5=0. So finally loop through until nmod7 is satisfied.

15 15 15…

v v v


5 6 0 1 2 3 4 mod7



n is 95 anon

here's how I got that group of 5 with none left so n has to be a multiple of five


5 10 15 20 25 30 35 40 45 50 55 60 65 70 75 80 85 90 95 100

one of those numbers has to 7x + 4

n divisible by 7 with remainder of 4

7 14 21 28 35 42 49 56 63 70 77 84 91 98

11 19 25 32 39 46 53 60 67 74 81 88 95 102

n - 4 = 7x

This narrows it down to only 3 possibles

25 60 95

Now you need a number that is 3x + 2

3 6 9 12 15 18 21 24 27 30 33 36 39 42 45 48 51 54 57 60 63 66 69 72 75 78 81 84 87 90 93 96 99

Just leaves 95. Did this the longest way possible. I'm sure there's a system of equations or some shit but my brain doesn't want to right now.

hey /sci/ (i was going to post at /freedu/, but no tor posting), i am reading The Feynman Lectures on Physics, Lecture 5: Time and Distance, introduces the idea of periodicity by giving the example of consecutive noons, saying that recurrence of an event does not imply equiperiodicity of each pair of adjacent occurences. this i agree with, but it then goes to say that, somehow, when there is another recurring event that always happens the same multitude of times between adjacent occurrences of the first event, there is a greater probability that the first event has equiperiodicity of the time between each adjacent pair of occurrences. i am not convinced this is the case, and the authors don't show us this. my doubt is because the second recurring event could, while still happening the same number of times between each pair of adjacent occurrences of the first, not have that equiperiodicity, and thus there might be one day where they are x,y,z,, and another day when they are a,b,c,, where the \sum{x,y,z,,} \neq \sum{a,b,c,,}, therefore the period of the first pair of adjacent occurrences of the first event is not equal to the period of the second pair of adjacent occurrences of the first event. maybe there is some strange law of probability i'm missing? maybe The Feynman Lectures on Physics, Lecture 6: Probability, will make it clear why, i'll let you know if i get anywhere on it. what bugs me is that it feels true. it's compelling to believe, but reason seems to contradict this "common sense", but how can i discount my "common sense"? i can't, that's how. anyway..

When you run current through a transformer, and that transformer's secondary coil's circuit is closed and carries a load then the primrary coil carries a load also, so all is good. But when the secondary coil is open, what's stopping the primrary from pulling an unhindered current and frying the system/tripping a fuze just like a short circuit?

Similarly, if I had a motor as the sole load on a circuit, and I locked said motor, would that fry the circuit?


1) The high inductive resistance of the primary when secondary is open.

2) Stopping the rotor decreases the input resistance, and the current increases. Whether that increased current would fry the circuit or not, depends on many parameters.

Is this fact the consequence of the fact that zero is the additive neutral element?




0/0 = x

x*0 = 0

for any real x. Therefore, any real x is a valid value for 0/0. Therefore, 0/0 is indeterminate (as is does not correspond to a specific number).
