Global video delay

A while back i upgraded most of my pc hardware; everything except motherboard, cpu and monitor. Everything worked smoothly. But shortly after - i think in conjunction with plugging in a new set of speakers - all video suddenly suffered a noticable delay. It's weird, cause i've had random audio delay...

I came up with a problem that i haven't been able to solve myself. If you flip a coin n times what is the probability that you will at some point have netted m more heads than tails? I tried graphing a P m (n), but i had included some outcomes more than once because the probability eventually equale...

Re: 1003: "Adam and Eve"

Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father. And they made their father drink wine that night: and the firstborn went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose. Behold, I lay yesternight wit...

Re: 0972: "November"

Wow... xkcd is getting really obscure. As if everyone here would have happened to read the exact Peanuts comic that was being referenced here, because if you hadn't you would have no idea what the point of the comic is. Even now that I know, it's still not that funny. I miss when xkcd used to refer...

The Aluminium (its pronounced AL YOO MIN EEEE UMM ok - see the 'i' there ?) in the plane and exposed steel in the building may have caused additional Thermite reactions which would have caused little spikes up to 2500 Celsius in 'hot spots' if it occurred. Little known fact: the "i" is si...

Re: 0928: Mimic Octopus

Re: 0858: "Milk"

Literally or not, the title text is implying that the woman is making a very safe bet that the guy is thinking about milking a woman (not just breasts in general; she gives a very specific use of them). No, that's not normal thinking. Maybe the joke is "Two people were thinking the same totall...

Re: 832 Tic-Tac-Toe

She had been playing the lower version and I the upper version, basically inversed, but that didn't affect the result of the game. This had a profound effect on my world view. It's actually the same thing, just viewed from different ways.
