Cognifit is a website that assess cognitive abilities of tens of thousands of participants from all around the internet, gauges their score against a normalized scale from 0-800, where the global mean is 407, and places them precisely on the global bell curve.
When you register, click on the Assessment tab and 'Start Assessment'. It should take around 15 minutes.
I wonder what's /sci/'s score as it is clearly the most intelligent board on 4chan.
Registration is free and you can just bullshit whatever information you'd like including email (no confirmation required), though it is recommended that you'll give your exact age so that you'll be given a precise comparison of your score to people within your age group.
So what's your score /sci/? Mine's 519.

Anyone else hate FOBs?? They are the shittiest part about university. They hang out in annoying cliques, refuse to speak English, and are stubborn as fuck. Nothing is ever their fault, and they are sooo damn rude. They are also the sneakiest motherfuckers. I had an account to a homework site, and when I was checking an Organic problem, the blittle bitch carefully watched what I typed in, and immediately logged in on her own computer.
fuck im pissed at them

It started over an argument from my wargaming group, but now this has really gotten me thinking.
Suppose you have a pic related, a Panzer III. It weighs about 25 tons. It has, however, run out of fuel in the middle of the Sahara desert, and can't run under its own power.
However, you do have some resources, and you've managed to convince a local tribe of Bedouins to help you drag the thing back to civilization, hauling it with camels yoked to the thing.
I mean, a strong man can push a car out of a ditch, but wheels are generally easier to move along than tank treads, and I imagine the soft sandy floor of the Sahara is tough to get traction with. Could 6-8 camels even make the thing budge? If they could, roughly how fast could you haul the thing along?
It's not urgent, but I'm not great at physics or math, and it's been bugging me for a bit.

Say that in some beautiful alternate Universe USA has a candidate, who is technologically literate and talented by modern standards with a successful Engineering/Science/Computers/Whatever in those lines career and not some Lawfag. He is winning and pretty much set to be the next president.
His goals among other things are to tell the nation for all to hear that the Congress and Government in general needs field diversity by which it doesn't solely consist of dumbfuck Lawfags to run the country while being advised by the Experts but rather Experts in their respective positions being advised by Lawyers and Lawyers only being bosses there where law, diplomacy and writing up shit matter.
The main deal: He wants to shift the Military budget, a pretty fucking big percentage of it, into Energy. Namely the goal is to set a plan by which Oil dependance is eliminated to the highest degree possible.
This renders sucking Saudi cock for Oil obsolete and renders wars in the Middle East obsolete.
In fact the savages can continue onto self exterminating over the Oil we don't buy anymore but they still depend upon because we ain't giving them the tech or money anymore. Anybody say accidental population control?
So, what could possibly this be? What technology and what CAN be used to substitute our need for Oil?
