### /sci/ pajeets

Let's settle this for once. How many of you lurk this board? What do you do?
Lost my TI-nspire CX CAS, now looking at getting another. Which of these modern calculators is the best? Needs to have CAS and be useful for and undergrad in engineering. Also copy-paste is a must. Currently leaning toward HP Prime, software looks fine and touch screen seems actually useful.
Hi sci I'm a guy that doesn't know maths beyond basic operations like adding and dividing. What textbook should I get that could teach me high school maths so I understand functions and the like?

### Time travel

I think I've just hack the universe. I know how to travel into the future. It's a thing I call "stipes stercore". Don't believe me? By the time you have finished this sentence you have travelled 5 seconds into the future.

### What's with all the flat Earth people who can't comprehend climate change? It's real!

Global cooling is real! 1/3 of the Northern Hemisphere is covered in ice, RIGHT NOW! Get your heads out of your asses flat Earthers! Or just go back to >>>/pol/ http://www.noaa.gov/stories/noaa-s-goes-16-satellite-sends-first-images-of-earth
When you jump you push the earth away from you therefore if we all go outside and jump enough while the sun is directly below us we WILL eventually push the earth into the sun and be able to end civilization early
Hey there /sci/. I'm finishing up my general education requirements and want to choose between either Computer Science or Electrical Engineering. Could anyone who has majored in those or similar areas give me insight on what the bulk of the course work will be like? I want to really get a feel for the different kind of work I'll be doing both in school and possibly in the field before I make a decision. Thanks for your help!
Realistically, what's the world going to look like down the road with climate change and global warming? I mean what's the environment going to be like when we're all in retirement homes, or what it'll be like in a 100 years.
What do we do with Nuclear waste /sci/? https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/re-open-yucca-mountain-nuclear-repository-and-rebuild-americas-crumbling-nuclear-infrastructure
What do you say to people who think the moon landing was faked?
Is there a book like pic related for networking? Something highly respected, clear and comprehensive? I want to understand the internet and networks from the ground up, how do computers connect? Telnet, ports, protocols, packets etc. I'm familiar with a lot of it, but it's all very disconnected to me.

### Sum of all Positive Integers

What are your thoughts on this result? $1+2+3+4+... = \frac{-1}{12}$ What do you physicists think? What do you mathematicians think?
>theoretical physics >pure math Which one is harder?
What more there is to get? What are some things humans really need and want, but we haven't invented it yet? I mean sure we could invent flying cars and faster computers and ways to get more food and colonialize Mars, but I don't really think humanity deserves or needs any of those. It just keeps asking for more. Just like a child; what is the point of buying new and new toys to a child that never grows up and always wants more toys. Even if I would invent something very important and big, I probably wouldn't publish any of the results. Maybe if I could get very rich, but just for fame? Not a chance. I think humanity has all they need atm. >inb4 curiosity
So I suck at math and I don't even know long division. I'm still endlessly fascinated by science, and I'd like to know some science books that can explain to me some scientific concepts that I can understand without math, to the same degree that any scientist could. I am especially interested in physics.

### /SQT/ AKA /QTDDTOT/

I'll start us off. How long do you have to study linear algebra to finally have the 'red pill' on it? My course now covers: Vector spaces, Linear Transformations, Orthogonality, and The Spectral Theorem.
How do I calculate the outer measure of a vitali-set?

### The hard problem of consciousness

What is /sci/'s response to the hard problem of consciousness? Why is there something "that it is like" to be a brain? Why doesn't all the data processing go on "in the dark", without the phenomenal experience? Do you see a big explanatory gap between function and experience here? http://www.strawpoll.me/12358244 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hard_problem_of_consciousness http://www.iep.utm.edu/hard-con/
