Whatchoo tokkin bout H2O Chong?""Noo no! Not H2O man. That's not it man. He2. Helium 2 is a souper-relative particle maaaaan! If it marries just the right electrons it'll burrow a hole up it's own arse and into it's own special place in the vacuum, maan! And it makes your voice sound funny when you put some in your bong.......... he hehe he eh he... wow... that's called second sound you know, man.... like, helium's some far-out wacky chute maaan...

We almost made it as a species, almost managed to actually be civilized, I'd like to think a few pockets of our species made it to threshold of being civilized beings but it hardly matters now. The downhill slide back to something ever more distant from civilization might be slow but i doubt it, I am probably too old to see the slide pick up too much speed but the curve has begun it's unstoppable downward turn. There were a few rays of hope, the enlightenment being the brightest...

    Humanity just lead itself into a darkness, the shadow which only breads ignorance and pride.

    Is there some catastrophic recent event that I haven't heard about? What's with all this brooding?

Does scientific scepticism begin with sticking to the subject or defining the object?

    It relies on only relying on the evidence already known and questioning newer concepts with that evidence.

I have finally made a break through on the Collatz conjecture. Although I still cannot prove the conjecture, my work has allowed me to create two new challenges, one which will be the toughest one yet... I'll have them posted as soon as I can find the time to write them up. :D

    And scratch the previous statement about evens not equaling an odd times 2^x. 1 * 2^x would fit the statement.

    Unity+, please see the comment I posted to your thread regarding hailstone sequences starting with factors of three. I can show that 9 will reduce to 7. 3(9)+1 = 28. 28 / 2^2 = 7. Thus, 7 does not start the hailstone sequence.

    Furthermore, 2^x does produce even numbers, but not all of them as it is easy to show that all even number are based on odd numbers and factors of two.

The existence of a neutrino mass strongly suggests the existence of a tiny neutrino magnetic moment[16] of the order of 10−19 μB, allowing the possibility that neutrinos may interact electromagnetically as well.

If an extremely powerfull electro-magnet is switched on, how quickly would it's most distant field of reach be active?, with say a magnet that could reach 13.8BLY?

    You might want to make this topic in order to get an answer on that one.

I learned some tricks in my Calculus lecture that I am thinking, "How the fuck is that even considered a valid proof?"

    Well, it dealt with the integral of cos^2x, since we were learning to use trig identities to solve integrals.(at least, I think that was the integral. I would have to check my notes again). The way it was proven was through taking the integral, and since another integral popped up, we solved for that integral, which would lead to the same integral that we were solving originally. We would then subtract that integral about the original one and it was solved.

    I remember using such tricks before for integrals like that. It is okay as long as you are sure the integral is well defined. That would take you into measure theory, which is not a first year course.
