I have decided to stop coming to /pol/. People stopped posting anything of value there. Just shitposting and occasional 'insiders'. How do I integrate into /sci/? Any study guides of some kind? How do I plan my studying? I'm especially interested in math and economics.

why is there no comprehensive study comparing the accumulated suffering and cost of vaccine damages to the potential suffering and damages of the pathogen vaccinated against?

advancements in modern medicine should dictate that children receive fewer vaccinations because what they're being vaccinated against is no longer a major threat to human health

most of the things we're vaccinated against aren't shit but because our regulatory agencies have been thoroughly captured and government bent over to receive the fat cock of big pharma right up america's ass when they passed the childhood vaccine injury act

if vaccines weren't a scam they would not need a kangaroo court and billions in taxpayer money paid to shut up victims of vaccine damages in order to protect big pharma

they can literally synthesize antibodies to any fucking diseases, no one except the most vulnerable should be vaccinated but due to the childhood vaccine injury act scam and big pharma corruption we're caught in situation where EVERYONE MUST BE vaccinated. not because of any scientific notion but because corporations scared our government our of better judgement, captured out regulatory agencies, and braiwashed the public

 >> Anonymous Thu Oct 29 13:41:53 2020 No.12286592 >>12286516Glucose just provides "energy". When a cell needs ATP, it will break down glucose, and use the energy from the reaction to turn ADP into ATP. This ATP is then used by enzymes to do work in the cell.For making proteins, the cell scavenges amino acids mostly from old proteins but some from the protein you eat. Then, using the energy from stuff like glucose, it can bind these amino acids together to make new proteins.Glucose and other nutrients are absorbed in the small intestine and transported your blood. Your blood delivers these nutrients to every other cell in your body.

Do lockdowns even work?

Unless the Western countries were to take drastic lockdown measures like the Chinks did (literally welding doors shut), there seems to be no way for lockdowns to work—with the end result being a wrecked economy and still a continuation of COVID. Even if 99.999% of Americans were to follow all pandemic lockdown orders to a T, it really only takes a hand full of positive people to fuck it up.

Is it best to just open up everything and keep on with the masks orders until a vaccine pulls through? This looks like it’s just a viscous cycle of opening and closing things for nothing.

They don't eliminate the virus entirely, so cases will increase once the lock down is lifted. Even in China, the virus is still around, to the point that they'll test an entire city if someone tests positive.

Why does the penis stop growing? What causes the penis to stop growing, and what causes the penis to grow in the first place? Your growth plates prevent your skeleton from growing beyond a certain point. Your penis doesn't have any growth plates. Why does the penis stop growing?

Has anybody ever done any serious research on this? This might just be one of those things were there's no demand to do any serious research on, or it would simply be too embarrassing. A lot of inventors throughout history have consumed their own products in order to prove their functionality, so it would be interesting to make my cock naturally grow to be a solid 11-inches long without having to do any unhealthy stretching nonsense that could permanently damage my penis.
