>2015 >STILL NO FUSION WHAT IS GOING ON
Ok /sci/ so my friend and I were wondering how many possible combinations of notes are there on both a guitar and a piano respectively? This does not take into account how many possible combinations a single person could physically play it's just a hypothetical question. A piano has 88 keys and a guitar has 121 notes regularly (given that a guitar usually has 21 frets) so how would you work out how many could be played simultaneously I guess??
Could anyone explain in a simple way the Banach-Tarski paradox? It seems just crazy.
How come only whites developed so many different hair and eye colors?

### English

Hi, i'm having relative trouble finishing English 10 on platoweb. My school kinda screwed me and threw me in platoweb half a semester in to finish my already good semester. So starting over, basically. Can anyone find an answer key and link me?
Can /sci/ explain this or should I move to the higher powers in /x/? As you can see, the dog reacts even before the things hit it. It knew there is going to be some kind of danger for him. But the problem is that the dog didn't look upwards at all, and his nose didn't help him either. So, does this dog (or all dogs) have another senses which we don't know about? Gif related.

### Feminism and STEM

Scott shares his thoughts on men in STEM's dating woes and the attack of these men by feminist. Thoughts on his commentary? http://www.scottaaronson.com/blog/?p=2091#comment-326664 feminist here>http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2014/12/mit-professor-explains-the-real-oppression-is-having-to-learn-to-talk-to-women/?utm_content=buffera1ea9&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=buffer refutes his message above.
when the earth is orbiting the sun is it in the same location as last year when it is new years
I dont know how it is here, but everyone at university laughs at me for being a geophysics major. Geologists use physics and chemistry to conduct their studies so I guess I don't know why were considered lesser than the rest. If you hold that opinion i guess explain it.
What do finitists like Norman Wildberger say about Pi, e or sqrt(2) if they pretty much deny the existence of irrational numbers? They have to use these constants, how do they justify their beliefs then? I'm not even trying to ridicule them, I am genuinely curious.
Why do even prestigious universities like MIT offer bullshit degrees such as a BSc in Women's Studies? Shouldn't universities support the development of science? Why do they put resources on blatantly unscientific pursuits?
Are there any real geniuses on /sci/?
What's /sci/'s opinion on alines and wheter or not they exist? Most People that know anyhting about science have heard of the drake equation but I recently read that some credible People believe it's total bullshit so what's either yours or the hivemind opinion on that one?

Why does the body collect so much fat? I get the evolution reasoning - energy reserves. But there's a point where the fat become a liability, not a safety reserve. So why doesn't the body just shit out the extra fat/waste?

### Typical Human Arrogance

It seems as though more people than not think themselves as different from animals, we constantly refer to ourselves as 'Human' and those are 'animals'. I've been thinking, is this just as a result of group survival instinct as a species? what do you animals think ?

### Summer Research

I'm applying for summer research positions right now, and i have a question. Do you think professors would rather hear that I want to become a prof after grad school or that I want to go and work R&D? The truth is that I want to work R&D, but i'm willing to lie to get a job.
Consider an infinite set of points \{ x_i \mid i \in \mathbb{N} \} of the euclidean plane, such that for all i, j, the distance between x_i and x_j is an integer. Show they are all on the same line.
What is happiness? And why is it tied to lower intelligence and responsibility? Why do humans take happiness in the fact that they have less on their shoulders? If happiness is the absence of responsibility and thought, is happiness a good thing at all?

### Chills Down the Spine

What exactly is it? I've heard a few things, but the best explanation I've heard is adrenalin, and sending blood to your extremities, which makes the core muscles around the spine shiver to generate heat and regulate the body heat. But I don't know how reliable this info is. Not sure how reliable you guys are either, this was just the only board which seemed relevant. Pic unrelated.
