Hey /sci/, can you give me some tips on finding textbook pdf?
Ebookee used to be my to-go place but most of the links are dead now. I've been combing google for hours but couldn't find any of my textbook.
Can any of you help out a fellow scientist please?

These are some of my txtbooks this semester, PLEASE HELP ;_;
What's so bad about INFPs?

So, I'm a medical student, but I'm also an INFP, a friend of mine seems to think this means I'm destined to fail at medicine.
I'm not sure what the NF means, but my friend was able to explain about perceiving and judging and I already knew about introverted/extroverted. That being said, from what I do understand, I'm introverted, which just means I do a lot of extra-research because I'd rather be doing that than socializing a lot of the time. And if I withhold judgment wouldn't that make me good at diagnosis?
My friend does neuroscience, so I tend to trust his opinions on these matters, and looking the type up on Wikipedia it thinks I'd make a great writer which, oddly enough, makes sense to me. I never thought of it as a career path but I genuinely do love to write, just for my own satisfaction. If I don't write anything for a while I tend to get grumpy and/or every other thing I say is some sort of pun.
Anyway, before this gets any more self-indulgent, what do you guys think? About personality tests? About my personality (doing the test I scored really high on every factor except I, which was 20, everything else was 60+. I dunno what that means, but maybe someone else does?)

A cannon fires a cannonball 500.0m downrange at a 45.0 degree angle. At what velocity does the cannonball leave the cannon?
This is one a physics review sheet involving a lot of v=d/t type of problems, though most supply the velocity and ask for time. (Easy)
I don't understand what to do with this problem, and the answer is already supplied. [70 m/s] I'd prefer to understand how to get to the answer rather that just copy it down, though.
Oh, and please define variables in whatever equations and try to make this as clear as possible, please.

An Australian left wing leb commie abbo-loving professor multiculturalist was teaching a class on Mohammed Abderrahman, known Terrorist.
"Before the class begins, you must get on your knees and worship Mo and accept that he was the most highly evolved being the world has ever known, even greater than Steve the Irwin!"
At this moment, a brave, blue aussie, solidaric pro-white Australia policy TV presenter called Paul Henry who served more than 1500 hours on breakfast TV and fully understood the necessity of VPL for breakfast and fully supported all decisions made by the Australian cricket board stood up and held up a glass bottle.
"What's in this bottle, ya big gallah?"
The arrogant drongo smirked quite poofily and smugly replied "That is a bottle of Victoria Pale Ale, you bloody wombat".
"Wrong. This is the national drink of all Australians, and if towel heads are aussies, then why can't they drink it?
The professor was visibly shaken, and dropped his chalk and his copy of the Qu'ran. He stormed out of the room crying those Melbourne anti-aussie tears.
The students applauded and all went out to get pissed and go surfing that day. A Kookabura named "Mick Dundee" entered the room and threw a shrimp on the barbie.
The professor lost his tenure and was fired the next day. He was killed by an abbo who has been huffing fumes all day and no one even liked him enough to call him a cunt at his funeral.

Holy fucking shit.
Have any ukfags been watching Britain's Brightest? They are trying to find... well, Britain's Brightest.
They test things such as "spelling, maths and emotions". WHAT THE SHIT?
Many of the contestants are women, despite us knowing that the brightest people are all men. OK, we can expect such a bias from the BBC.
Some of the professions of contestants:
Yeah there was also a maths teacher and physics PHd who did well, but why are the above even in it?
The reason for these people becoming contestants are things such as:
>good at scrabble
>watches TV quiz shows
>"I always know the answer to things other people don't"
Some of the rounds:
>guess people's age
>guess people's weight
WHAT THE ACTUAL SHIT? Were these literally put in just so women could compete with men? How do they test intelligence?
Even the spelling test was silly. The guy who sets the Times crossword puzzle knew all the answers, but lost because they have to do a thing like XBox Kinect and the computer thought he skimmed one of the words with his arm. A TEST OF INTELLIGENCE TO BE SURE.
Is this literally the only way they could make intelligence appeal to the masses? By making it stupid and having everyday people on it? Where are the university professors? Are we expected to believe that the most intelligent people in the UK are hidden away having never excelled at anything? These people all believe they are very bright.... Dunning-Kruger much?

/sci/, today was a dark day for science. Aaron Swartz, one of the most brilliant young minds in the country, committed suicide (age 26) after being hounded by U.S. federal prosecutors for his attempts to liberate scientific journal articles which are locked behind paywalls.
It's absolutely inexcusable that science articles paid for by public taxpayers is held behind ridiculous paywalls (usually somewhere between $18-$40 to download a single PDF).
Aaron's story tells us that in the U.S., profits are put above science. It makes me so furious, I want to do something about it.

I'm currently doing my AH chemistry investigation on a thermometric titration between HCl and NaOH/ CH3COOH and NaOH, and I need to find some decent sources for background theory.
Also, in the guide for the experiment, it just says "make graph with results", which is fine, but then it says "find enthalpy of neutralisation", which I am not sure how to do.

I am learning french, and i'm wondering if anyone knows of any good french resources. I.e. websites that check grammar, actually good movies in french, french news, ect...
Pic related, Frechet is french and discovered metric spaces. So general metric space theorem discussion.
