Reptiliandude (an internet troll who claims he is a fucking reptilian) posted this:

These are protons yet to be discovered which are not bound to the rule of thirds as expressed by the arrangement of quarks in this particular immaculate simulation.

They are formed from the quarks which those whose wisdom shall be revealed as foolishness claim are 'junk' left over from the formation of the universe.

These 'stones' which the 'builders' have rejected shall be revealed to be the chief cornerstones of this universe stirred into being by rivers unseen.
Let those examining the remains of this little subreddit years from now consider carefully what was spoken here.

Let those who remain in Judea ignore the lies of your money-lenders and flee towards the mountains as the war machines of the Kings of the East approach Megiddo.

Take nothing with you but that food, water and clothes which you can carry.

Do not tarry in Uru Salim.

Fear not those creatures falling upon them from the skies, or the terrifying visage of that One who leads them.

For He has earned His conquest by establishing His covenant upon many worlds with His own blood.

One Lord... many species, many faces.

Even terrible ones, which you cannot comprehend or gaze upon without terror taking hold of you.

Know that even these are the servants of this Great King.

He summoned them to war beside Him for their steadfastness and their desire to honor him.

Fear them not.

Is somebody here with more brain and science knowledge then me who can maybe disprove this theory?

 >> Anonymous Thu Dec 13 13:15:29 2018 No.10212364 >>10212322Multiple choice and True/False exams aren't commonly used except for highschool standardized testing (standardized testing doesn't affect student grades or evaluation, it's used for evaluating how well the school is doing and deciding how much money the staff should get). Occasionally exams will have a multiple choice portion but it's just there as a quick sanity check to make sure you know the material and save time for the TAs grading you.For instance you may have a several page exam where the first page has multiple choice questions about some basic properties and true/false questions about some "obvious" theorems that aren't worth proving because they'll be obvious if you understand the material. Then the remainder of the exam will be a handful of long answer proofs/problems. A student who gets everything right on the first page but struggles with other portions of the exam understands the concepts but maybe struggles with proofs or just got stuck.

 >> Anonymous Thu Dec 13 13:29:34 2018 No.10212401 I had a complex analysis course (in a Canadian Uni) where all the quizzes, midterm, and final were multiple choice. This sounds like a cakewalk but it's actually totally fucked. We only turned in our answer sheet with the correct answers circled in, we couldn't show our work and thus there were no part marks. The midterm only had three long questions so if you couldn't figure one out or didn't quite have enough time to finish it you automatically lost of a third of your marks. Our final had something like 20 questions and no one came close to finishing it. Also, the "wrong" multiple choice answers were always chosen so that you could actually end up with those answers if you messed up something (eg. dropped a sign somewhere) so trying to guess the right answer was basically impossible. There were lots of other problems with the way the class was taught as well (eg. the Honours version of the class was literally the same class and his teaching was literally putting the textbook on a projector and reading it to the class).

To sacrifice that amount of maneuverability and speed by adding the stupid lift fan thing just because our Men In Uniform (tm) wet themselves at the idea of landing on a carrier horizontally may as well be an act of genocide. The enormous amount of complexity that the STOVL system adds basically makes it such that even the slightest battle damage will probably make the STOVL system fail causing the plane to explode upon landing, meaning that every flyout of the F35 is a potential suicide mission. At best it is profiteering, at worst it is an attempt to sell our NATO allies inferior tech so we can enslave them one day.
I think the F35 is more aptly called the F56, because it is truly a 56% percenter fighter jet, because it is simply half assed.

It adds a ton of weight and complexity to the planes that is not necessary.

I am in my 2nd year of mech eng and I am happy in the field but I can't stand doing projects that involve physically constructing anything. It sounds onions I'll admit but I just find it fiddly and uninteresting and I'd rather spend the time design, analysis, etc.

I know senior engineers do more pencil pushing but are there any entry level jobs like that.
