Re: 1325: "Rejection"

Quit complaining and go read "No More Mr. Nice Guy" by Robert Glover. Might just change your life.

Re: 1270: Functional

Just checked in, I realize it's been a while. But at a much lower level than that, every instruction of a processor is a series of logic gates that executes a function taking in a number of boolean values and outputting the value of that function. In principle every single operation a processor does...

Re: 1270: Functional

it seems like the computer itself must be inherently functional Actually computers are inherently imperative. A program is a sequence of basic instructions which the (idealized, non-optimized) processor pulls one at a time and executes in sequence, storing results in registers or in memory as the i...

Re: 1240: "Quantum Mechanics"

Also, it makes much more sense, to ignore it because it contains the unword “soul”. A clear indicator for a lingering religious schizophrenic delusion. I'm not sure you can safely ignore fanatics. Anybody who uses the word "soul" is a dangerous fanatic? You must walk in a very narrow soci...

Re: 1185: "Ineffective Sorts"

I don't get the halfhearted mergesort one. I mean, he's forgetting to include the pivot (unless it's implicitly included in either PIVOT: or :PIVOT but not both; I am not familiar with that syntax). Is that it?

Re: 1146: "Honest"

MadH and sep332, I think I can safely say you guys had it easy. "I found a collection of irrational phobias that took me a couple days to put back away." A couple days, you say? How about having to undo an entire upbringing of being lied to by killjoys about how the world works, thereby ma...

Re: 1146: "Honest"

Just fake it until you make it. You're only who you present yourself to be. Not necessarily. I used to be who I really was, and I understood everything just fine without being confused or scared because everything was easy without really trying and bad times were temporary and everything was inevit...

Re: 1027: Pickup Artist

This is bullshit. So we are suppose to equate ANY AND ALL attempts to pick up, go out with, or otherwise "score" with a girl as misogyny against or objectification of women? Further, we are also suppose to believe that acting on these ideas is simply a mental defect in our brains complete...
