did you know?
The structure of an enzyme that causes a
disease similar AIDS in monkeys was
resolved in 2011 by people playing an
amine game abaut protein folding called
Feedle. While researchers had been
working at solving the emblem for 1 3
years, the gamers had it solved within three
weeks.

The solution is clear   
give all unsolvable protein structures to the top 500 puzzle solving gamers   
tell them for everyone they solve they get 5k   
   
Pharmacies make millions off cures   
gamers get to buy all the dlc for the next game   
Everyone wins

Well tell them to step the **** up or step down.

Most scientists are now those faggots who say Did you know that ******** happens here more then here becouse your there more then here.

they're the ones that start the project. Or do you think those gamers would have suddenly felt a need to solve those protein structures all by themselves?

pretty much exactly like that, actually. When you have a couple million gamers (who have been trained all their lives, via video games, to think critically) working on the same problem, it's going to get done a whole lot faster than a few thousand well-trained scientists doing it.

Yea don't give any credit to the scientists and programmers that actually made the game which harnessed the computing power of the human mind to solve a problem faster than any computer could, just give all the credit to a bunch of lazy assholes that probably don't even know the first thing about molecular biology.

The point is that gamers had the problem solving and puzzle solving skills to find a solution (to whatever the game had in mind or designed as a solution). About not knowing anything about molecular biology, sometimes it takes an unbiased or simply a different approach to solve certain problems, which is why we have playtesters for developing games, as the developers can often miss simple or complicated things due to the their knowledge of the game and the way they approach it. Sometimes, knowing to much about a certain subject can lead one to over-think and often make it more complicated or result in completely overlooking basic or obvious issues.

For people who are seemingly lazy, it's quite surprising they solved a vastly complicated problem in the eyes of scientists... just sayin'.

Because anonymous samefagging makes total sense.

Dude, I get that they did all the work for it, but that argument is kinda ridiculous. That'd be like saying every term and research paper was the work of the person who invented paper.

**sketchysketchist rolled image**   
   
its because scientists wont do **** unless they get paid and profit from their research while gamers will pay you to do anything as long as its on their preferred gaming console.

off topic question, what's the name of the game where you make a disease and have to kill everyone? i'm not talking about the flash game either, i mean the one on steam.

If you have a smartphone, try it on there first. There is a free version, and full version is $0.99 + tax

The phone one has DLC viruses (zombie, mind control worm and the virus from the latest Planet of the Apes movie). I think the steam version just adds them to the game and you don't have to pay extra.

I have the game for 2-3 years now and I stil play it more frequently than other games I have in my phone
