    For those who took Electronics and Communications Engineering in college

    how did you cope up with studying and balancing sleep, gaming and mental health? I don't think I'm neglecting my studies but I'm starting to see failed quizzes and exams lately even though I made sure I studied well the terms, concepts, formulas, and how tf these circuits work

    Maybe, you are simply not intelligent enough to grasp it, have you considered that possibility?

    If you're failing then it's clear something isn't working.
    If you're serious then gaming should only be a consideration during the weekends.
    Study and and sleep are your gods during the week. And they are jealous gods.

    like every good student in history of time - by studying hard enough to pass tests.

    if you fail maybe its time to rethink your life and pursue the carrier of blue collar worker not academic graduate.

    Nonsense, pretty much every functional person has the intelligence to build up to the knowledge that any other person has. Some people learn quicker than others but it's just a matter of being interested, dedication, and effort. Having good teachers and support structures is also a bonus that speeds up the process.

    I smoked a ton of weed while doing my game design course, and played tons of games, and went out and partied. I think the weed helped carry me through it all. I also maintained a 90% average.

    Once again, I find it hard to take anyone seriously, who doesn't believe in the Scientific Method. What is nonsense, is someone who doesn't believe experimentation can help predict future outcomes... If you truly believed that, you wouldn't brush your teeth.

    So, do you brush your teeth?

    Actually I see you as living proof as to how untrue your statement is.

    If my IQ (subjectively and objectively) was over 200, a polymath of over a dozen fields in science do you really think you're going to reach my level...even as I continue to grow?

    I recall a teacher saying she had 26 students, and every one of them a genius. The challenge for her was finding where their respective genius lie.

    As often than not, a person's genius and his/her interests tend to coincide. If the OP doesn't find his studies interesting then he won't readily retain the knowledge. And that means he needs to really work at it. If it's all boring as hell then he's probably wasting his time.

    Some people are cable of having a life while going to college, while other have to sacrifice.
    For me I had to reduce gaming or change the games to less stressful ones in order to survive. Meanwhile I know someone who partied hard every week and still passed with 90+ average.

    Yes, any functional person in good health could eventually get the same knowledge that the genius had when they took the IQ test. Assuming that they have the interest and motivation for doing so.

    No, there's no guarantee that a person can "catch up" to the genius in real-time, but only that they could catch up to a certain benchmark if they live long enough in good health.

    I'm not sure why you keep derailing threads with off-topic conversations when you could just send me a private message.

    As I've already told you I follow Karl Popper's work which shows that the classical/Baconian scientific method isn't correct because it's based on using empiricism/induction for the purpose of confirmation. Karl Popper shows that science is a deductive process of conjecture and refutation where theories are not derived from repeated observations and where it's possible that a scientific test could prove a theory is false with a counter-observation.

    An experiment tells you about that experiment but it can't tell you about the future correctness of a scientific theory. If you run an experiment to test Einstein's theory of relativity that only directly tells you about that experiment and it doesn't magically tell you about anything new in the future and it doesn't tell you about whether GTR will remain true into the future. In fact for every scientific theory our assumption should be that it's incomplete in some way and therefor wrong and must be superseded by an improved theory that gives us a better understanding of what is happening.

    How does that relate to science? I brush my teeth because my parents and dentist taught me that they will go bad if I don't. You shouldn't make predictions about people and teeth based on observations and correlations because by that point you would have already seen tooth decay which is undesirable. Instead you should make predictions about them based on a 'causal' understanding of how people and tooth decay works.

    You're asking for help on a, primarily, gaming forum. That alone speaks volumes.

    Twice a day, every day... and floss. Flossing is a great way to prevent bad breath.

    I do it, because science has shown what happens when you don't take care of your teeth.

    God bless science.

    How wealthy are your parents?

    IF (Parents Wealthy) Then {You can probably sustain this lifestyle indefinitely.} + {Also brag on gaming forums how you "very successful"}
    IF (Parents not Wealthy) Then {Cut out gaming to focus on exams} Or {Posture loudly for UBI on reddit and gaming forums}
    Welcome to GEN-OT, have a seat, we'll introduce you to the 23-year-old who will lecture you about how Democrats didn't try hard enough to improve the ACA, and once that's all set up you'll be assigned a socialist who supported Ron Paul up to 2015 to harass you forever.

    I brush my teeth because I understand how tooth decay works and because I want to be as healthy as I can be. For a small child they might not know exactly why they're brushing their teeth but they do it for other reasons, such as pleasing their parents or not wanting to disappoint them. According to your line of reasoning a kid who does not brush their teeth and has not happened to have a cavity yet would never need to brush their teeth because they could reliably project their past healthy experience into the future. Which is the wrong way to think about causality.

    Also according to your logic we could ask the question "Why would a gambler play roulette or buy a lotto ticket if they cannot predict the future based on past events". It's simply a non sequitur, people do things for reasons(good or bad), to have fun, or to try and achieve some objective. People often do things because they believe it will lead to an improvement over the past at some point and not merely a continuation. (E.g. going to college and getting a better job.)

    Fixed... the quotes are inconsistent... Incapsulate to limit possible bugs. The quote isn’t a constant, I would recommend making it a variable.

    How would you know that, if you don't think that past observance can be used to predict future outcomes?

    This is awkward for you.

    My line of reasoning is that the Scientific method works, regardless of your hypocrisy.
