99% of STEM graduates can't solve this primary school problem in an hour! Can you?
There is a well, open at the top, with a diameter of three meters. We throw two sticks with lengths of four and five meters, respectively, into the well. Let's assume that these sticks are positioned as shown in figure 0.2, i.e., they stay in the same plane and they "cross each other" as shown. The problem is really two-dimensional, as the well can be replaced by a rectangle that is open at the top.
Now, the challenge is to determine the distance h from the bottom of the well to the point where the two sticks intersect.
R:14 / I:8 http://vidyaessaygen.com/ This "youtube video game essay generator" is pretty hilarious. I continue to be amazed at how these random generators that are basically madlibs continue to entertain me so much.

Have you read any interesting articles lately? Anything news worthy you think kissu would want to know about?
R:11 / I:5 Eclipse season starting again! Next one is a partial lunar eclipse on November 19.

R:0 / I:0 Humanity being an early species among the cosmos is a pretty terrifying possibility. I hope our descendants will be more reasonable and forgiving than in our past.
R:3 / I:0 The comments on this video are interesting, because they exist in some sort of manufactured reality. For the last year, maybe two, Martin has been continually self-sabotaging himself by redesigning parts that do not need redesigning, creating parts that were not given enough forethought for the ways in which they will fail, and then worst of all, going beyond the scope of the project and introducing corrosive feature creep with elements of the previous two issues intermixed.
Despite this realization finally striking Martin, the response from the comments is flooded with messages saying, "Don't give up! We support you!" and "Your issues make the project unique! Without them, you're destroying it's character."
I can't help but wonder who these people are, and what their rationale might be. Was redesigning the marble gates 3-4 times in a row really productive? Was adding the additional constraint that the machine must be silent constructive? Was redesigning the rhythm machine necessary? Did the focus -- for far too long -- on trying to make the mechanism for dropping marbles look like spindly fingers actually achieve anything?
R:2 / I:0 You ever wonder how some stuff manages to be profitable? Like peas, for instance. It takes something like 30 of the plants to fill up one frozen bag and the bag sells for a dollar. Is it just government subsidies? And then there's specialty stores. Maybe physical specialty stores are on their way out because of online shopping, but previously a guy could have a store where he just sells paint or pool supplies and somehow it would stay in business throughout his life. It's just so strange to me to think somehow civilization supports this kind of thing.
R:4 / I:1 eating is a seasonal activity
R:2 / I:1 Usagi!
R:12 / I:0 It's that time of year again when high school students are taught algorithms for calculating matrix operations without any hint of the meaning behind the calculations or what they might realistically use it for.
R:16 / I:6 kissu friends, please remember to take vitamin supplements if you stay indoors. low vitamin is really bad!! and most people are deficient because we stay indoors all the time!! it can lead to worsened anxiety, and depression, and worsened immune system and health outcomes in general.
R:12 / I:7 Finally reaching that time of the year where I can make warm milk before bed and not feel like I'm burning up
R:1 / I:0 Love me some orangutans. look at these guys having fun. People say chimps are closest to humans, but I wanna hang out with these guys, not chimps that freak out and are violent.
R:12 / I:4 So what's gonna happen on December 21?
R:7 / I:1 Some people realized that you can just look up Congress members stock trades because they "coincidentally" happen to always make good picks. Has anyone here tried that or followed that sort of news?
R:45 / I:14 Everything seems so messed up. The world keeps getting worse and worse. People are forced into more and more debt in order to get by. Giant companies cut costs, pass them off to consumers, and price gouge all to appease shareholders. People are forced to rent everything they have because it's not financially feasible to own anything anymore. Governments which are supposed to protect its citizens ignore it as they only seek to gain more power for themselves. The only way I see this getting fixed is an economic collapse to restart the system. But that will hurt a lot of people and take generations to recover. I like to think it's not as bad as it seems and my perception is just warped from secluding myself to imageboards most of my life, but every time I look at the real world, it just doesn't seem okay. I hope I'm wrong and everything isn't actually as messed up as I see it, but I'm not too confident in that....
I'm drunk and depressed right now and I don't know why I wrote this but I did. Thanks for reading my blog. Sorry.

R:2 / I:1 Can't wait until it's cold enough that I can lay in bed with blankets playing a handheld again. I don't know if I ever feel more content. Ahh... why is being warm while surrounded by cold so comforting?
R:6 / I:5 (sticky) Welcome to Autumn,
"The Autumn Sky and a Maiden's Heart" "Falling Leaves of Maddness" "Promise of the Wheat God"
R:9 / I:3 I went on my yearly 6hr autumn walk through the park trials for these walks I start on the bike paths before going off to the unmarked areas. I normally bring a weapon but I foolishly forgot this time luckily there was no danger. I couldn't say the same for this caterpillar I found on the bike path before going to the unmarked areas. It was a monarch and knowing there are indangered I picked it off the path so it wouldn't go squish from bikes and carried it away to an unmarked area deep in the woods to be safe. I then altered my route because I don't like backtracking.
Hours pass and I head back to the bike path only to see a squished caterpillar on my trek I start to think "I hope that's just one I didn't carry" only to find just up ahead 13 more dead monarch caterpillars. Now I'm thinking that I did it for nothing I saved one only to see a bunch more dead...maybe even the one I "saved" maybe if I didn't see the one caterpillar I could have saved others..maybe I'm only fooling myself.

R:17 / I:0 Favorite streamer dropped out of University I graduated from to play AoE full time
i want more excitement and drama in my life and im just accumulating money without anything to spend it on so im thinking about developing an addiction to opiates it would be kind of cool to wake up in a dumpster or under a highway overpass looking like a ghoul from fallout. also I'd meet tons of interesting characters like drug dealers, other addicts that we could talk about how our life took this direction and stuff and there's even the possibility of getting into running dope and getting in gun battles and chased around by unmarked police cars and feds on some dark street
Ive seen enough movies on the subject, and being a heroin addict just seems pretty freaking COOL! Also the main character from trainspotting is super hot in those mega skinny jeans. it's freaking cool..
And all of this is before we even get into the simplest benefit of becoming a opiate abuser. It's literally the best feeling in the world. Life is like a big video game trying to get the most feelgood points with your resources. Well most people are retarded because we already invented the cheapest and way to get these points and its just to inject them directly into our brain. People who will tell you otherwise are just like weird autists who refuse to use glitches, or even the most effective items in an RPG. Yeah bro okay, spend hours and hours grinding level 1 zombies or whatever. I'm just going to skip directly to the endgame. You're never going to get as many points as me raising some shitty family with a wife that comes to hate you, or working a corporate job.
does /qa/ have any tips and tricks about becoming addicted to opiates?
R:6 / I:0 funny, had this channel recommended for a while and thought this was interesting.
R:4 / I:2 Apparently a bust of Hermes' head was unearthed in Greece during sewage construction. Neat stuff. A shame there's not nearly as many historical sites of archeological significance in the New World, outside of the Aztec, Maya, and Inca.
R:14 / I:5 I wish every person over 55 would die. I wish boomers would all die already.

R:6 / I:2 Have you ever dealt with addictions? How did you get over it? Are you currently addicted to something?
R:7 / I:2 I just recently noticed that youtube has movies that are free with ads, and those ads are easily blockable with adblock. How's youtube able to do this? And it's not like it's only unknown movies either.
R:1 / I:0 Candy science sure is interesting.
