Captcha has become very difficult to solve. I can think of two reasons for this:

one: similar to banning someone, increase the difficulty rating of their captchas to they spend enormous amounts of time trying to comolete the captcha and commenting becomes very difficult, so difficult that they might abandon their task.

two: captchas are just more difficult

lately the captchas have become more and more grainy: I have to zoom in to make out the blurry outline of what might be a car. The captchas alternate between different solving types, and some are far more difficult than others, or require far greater patience(e.g. the captcha frames that, once selected, slowly fissolve over the course of 5 seconds. when you have to select 10 correct images that's 5 seconds of refreshing apiece, plus zooming in to be able to even try to make out the blurry images. Then you must have missed one [?!?] because it wants you to do it again.

Now escuse me while I go spend more time solving the captcha than I did typing this out and selecting an image.

So...the math/science bit: captcha difficulty vs. time is up

The main question is, why doesn't this exist? By "this" I mean the following: corporations that voluntarily retain their worker's salaries so they (the workers) can pay less income tax. What I mean by this is: Suppose you got a worker that earns$1000 per month. His expenses are $100 for rent,$50 for groceries and $300 for other various stuff. After he gets paid, though, he needs to give away 10% of his monthly salary in income tax, thus another$100 go away and his total month expenses are $550. He saves the rest ($450.) Finally, after 12 months he will have $5400 saved up, tax-free money. Now imagine if corporations could act like some sort of bank, where workers could have money associated to them, and they could buy anything through the corporation thus the money never becomes an income to the worker until he decides to pull out. Following the past example the worker's monthly expenses would only be$450 because he is not paying income tax, and thus he saves up $550. After 12 months he will have$6600 associated to him, and when he decides to pull out that money (assuming that the yearly tax properly scales with the monthly tax) he will pay 10% income tax on that, leaving him with \$5940 tax-free money.

Meanwhile corporations could invest their employees' money on low risk investments, generating more revenue for the corporation. I don't know if this has been tried before, but with the Internet and online stores I don't see how it could not work (leaving the gov sperging out and people acting irrationally out of the equation.)

Quoted By: >>12418242 >>12418252

For one of my online CS classes, I was accused of plagiarism on a homework assignment.

The course policy is that we can use information from any internet article on the homework as long as we cite the source.

I got a 0 on the homework because the TA claimed my solution "wasn't cited or was too similar to the cited source" (pre-automated response they selected on Gradescope)

I then pointed out that I cited the source. The TA said that they didn't see I had cited it before but would still need to "check with the professor". They then gave the assignment to the professor to look at, and he determined that there was 1 sentence that was "too similar" in wording to the source and maintained I had plagiarized.

I ran my response and the article through a plagiarism checker/text comparison tool which found 0 instances of similar wording. In other words, I paraphrased everything and added my own information.

Is this worth fighting or will they try to take it up to the Academic review board, fuck me out of due process, and hit me with something that will actually be on my record?

No, I don't go to a third world university.

In my experience as a TA, professors hate to deal with cheating formally. It's a huge pain in the ass as far as documentation is concerned. I've seen two professors and one lecturor refuse to take action in the face of obvious cheating. Take the zero on the one assignment, and do the best you can going forward. >pre-automated response they selected on Gradescope IDK what pre-automated means, but as of 4 years ago, all reponses in gradescope were created by the professor, or delegated to be created by the TA. The people responsible for administering the course create the responses thereby turning them into buttons that can be clicked. It's not a fake or necessarily ill-considered response.

If MWI is true, then quantum immortality is true as well. (Although most MWI proponents deny this for whatever reason.)

That'll mean I'll ultimately end up in a universe where I'm billions of years old, have all kinds of ridiculous diseases, am miserable, and literally nothing exists except for me.

Now that we're getting more information about the mRNA based vaccines, is there any evidence that long term side effects could theoretically be worse than the long term side effects of a standard viral infection? Have long term side effects even been a problem with vaccines under any circumstances?
From my understanding the mRNA just tells your ribosomes to make an antigen. Then the nucleotides are degraded, and the body learns how to kill that antigen in the future by killing the ones that were made.
Am I missing something? How could this possibly create long term side effects? It's a less harmful version of what a normal virus does in your body on a near constant basis, what are people afraid of here?

gentleman i have solved 0/0.
assume f(x) = x/x
take the lim x->0+
what do you get ?
1
now take the limx->0-
what do you get?
1
thus 0/0 = 1
where is my phd?

any recommendations for good organic chemistry textbooks/resources other than anons? sci guide gives A Guidebook to Mechanism in Organic Chemistry (Sykes) and Organic Chemistry (Clayden), are these good enough for self-learning?

I finished reading picrel a while ago and it was pretty eye-opening. I have The Extended Phenotype on my reading list, but I wanna know what's good as far as similar literature goes.

I only ask because the last time I randomly picked out an evolution-related book, it was The Edge of Evolution and the guy who wrote it wound up making tons of leaps in logic.

Ight guys, I did a fucking stupid thing while drinking. I put a good amount of lithium foil in a small cup of water while in my garage and it promptly combusted, then exploded violently throwing molten lithium everywhere. Is there any health concern considering I breathed some of the massive smoke plume it made after starting on fire? Or am I probably fine?

Video related, the explosion itself.

 >> Anonymous Sat 05 Dec 01:47:54 2020 No.12421012 Quoted By: >>12420006 That fucking sucked. I recall I was a roommate cleaning the bathroom floor of a grad student apartment using bleach. The hard floor started to smell like piss and some other fuck, so I figured I'd be responsible and clean up. The moment I had some water and bleach touch the floor, the noxious fumes caught me off guard and I had to shut the shitter door and ran outside for air. Those fumes became strong very fast as it kept reacting to that floor. I thought: "Surely we're not that savage to piss on the floor, right!?..." Hold that thought. I had no mop handy so I used plenty of paper towel. Even worse, there were no (fast-working) vents in that small Auschwitzkammer I made. So, I had to basically wipe the floor up of the remaining bleach and fan the fumes out the door with my large towel, taking hits of fumes and air breaks for over two hours. Feel free to tell me what the hell was that gas or how I was dumb for even trying to cleanup, but the important thing was I saved my roommates from being gassed while having a piss in a clean bathroom.
