Quark (2/13)



  1. Anyone know of a par excellence text on Linear algebra that a physics student could get?
  2. sometimes they just like to see that you will participate in groups, if they look at your clubbing history at all.
  3. Hi I am A Fool, (so that people think that I am humble when really I am the smartest man alive!) um nice to meet you?
  4. Maybe the rose in the basement was lonely and roses are actually a social being. The solitary confinement could be a huge stressor on the poor plant and eventually the lonelyness got to it and decided it wasn't worth it anymore! you monster! you let that poor thing die a lonely death! what did it do to you!
  5. absolutely facinating! way to go anthropic principle on a cosmological scale!
  6. A good Idea is ususally to talk to a variety of professors in the bio/chem/physics departments at the school you are attending/planning on attending. Also you must realize that careers are dynamic and you could be studying this now and that later, don't let that bother you though it is something that is almost subconcious. Also when it comes to sciences, especially physics, a lot of what you learn are tools, example: my physics professor and head of the physics departments studies biological systems, it's the physics he uses that makes him a physics professor.
  7. yes there are variations to the interpretation of colors in the human brain, but generaly the majority of people see a similar color, hence our rationality of calling colorblindness a malformity. Also the primary colors of pigments are yellow, magenta, and cyan whereas the primary colors of light are red, green, and blue. I can see the argument of light as being scaled similar to music, but in light you just get into ultraviolet and infrared if you try to jump octaves, in a manner of speaking. Is the question you are asking about whether to recognise these higher frequencies as multiples of the visible light spectrum? (in that case you would be right)
  8. that cleared up pretty much everything thanks swansont. ~Fool
  9. I'm a physics major not a Neuroscience major but does brain activity have an effect on how long the brain lasts? like excersising, or does it wear on the brain like an engine. thing is if you were to do a test of people with similar circumstance and habits and everything to try to determine average longevity would you have to take into account their IQ and uses thereof?
  10. I saw something interesting so I desided to ask the brains that be: I was watching a program about military training and they mentioned that they have problems with some of their recruits that, even after long training, cannot physically cope with lengthy/long distance runs, and they suspected that it was genetic and that no matter how hard they train they will never be able to long distance run without collapsing. I just wanted an educated opinion on the matter thanks. ~Fool
  11. I apologize for bringing this sensitive issue to play especially if this topic has already been brought up: Did we land on the moon? there is alot of speculation about it so i decided maybe it would be best if i ask the ones with brains. Apparently the counterevidence to us landing on the moon are, but not limited to: -lack of blast crater under the LM -lack of background noice from the rocket during decents while astronaughts talk -pictures of different missions 5 miles appart with the exact same rock formations -lack of rocket plume from LM in video when take off back to the shuttle -the crosshairs in pics have some objects in front and some behind -the whole sheilding issue through the Van Halen belts. and the list goes on and on Please shed some light thanks ~Fool
  12. In my limited knowledge, I was under the impression that a blackhole (singularity) was mathematically sound iff there was something on the other side of it ie. different dimensions, ect. I seem to recall something roughly called the "no hair theorem" in which there is only three things you can know about a black hole (therefore no hairy little details to worry about): It's Mass, electric charge, and it's angular momentum. So with the current model you could debate that there is a worm hole or a singularity or even the complete works of shakespeare in there. The problem is it is useless to try and predict something with a theory when said theory breaks down in those circustances. ~Fool
  13. How very thouroughly enlightening thank you very much!
  14. Hey Thanks for the help guys
