I'm currently an undergrad math student in my second year, I took a good bit of classes early (entered college with Calc 1-3 and Diffy Q done, plus some random basics like economics, photography, etc.) so I'd have the flexibilty to add majors/graduate early. I wanna do my PhD in maths, and I think I am good at it, I always get an -A/A in my math and other classes, do reading and thinking outside of whats required by the class, try and talk to profs and people online about math to build my understanding, etc. But i've seen a lot of threads claiming PHDs are a meme and talking about how its not worth it, im in the process of trying to get research experience by buttering up profs who have projects going with the hope of asking to join them (although I am full remote and corona has made it considerably harder), and applying for REU's in the upcoming summer. So I wanna hear about peoples experience to help make an informed decision about whether or not I should pursue my PhD or just finish up my math B.S in the next year and pick up something else like physics and try to go straight to industry.

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

Glucose 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.

What do you mean by work? They decrease cases and spread. 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.

You only really delay the inevitable. The amount of susceptible people you have is set before the pandemic starts, and they will get it eventually. The Spanish Flu reached isolated pacific islands, and that was in the age before international air traffic.

Early on lots of governments were stupid enough to lie to the public about masks because they wanted time for hospitals to stock up.
Then when these same governments turned around and said masks are good wear them lots of people assumed it was a lie because those same governments had said there was no need for masks.

When you lie to children, children remember and become less trusting. The same thing happened here. It's one thing to lie about something that will remain under wraps, but to intentionally disseminate bad information, and then contradict that information within a few months, will of course create distrust in the public.

My knee-jerk reaction was it's bad to lie to the people but having seen how fast they turn savage under a little pressure I'm not so sure you could be honest with them.
The smart play might just be to tell the media to not mention masks at all until hospitals are stocked because I'm sure if you said "masks work but health workers need them first" people would be buying hundreds each the next day.

Why didn't the WHO, or any government for that matter, simply release guidelines to make proper cloth masks and decontamination by washing or leaving out in the sun?

This is the only thing you had to do to eliminate the equipment shortage. Then again, in some countries hospitals weren't given proper equipment either. They were at most given dentist aprons.

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.
