Re: 1266: "Halting Problem"

You're not the same person now as you were when you wrote the text I've quoted above.. The sentence I am now writing is the sentence you are now reading. Contrary to expectations about such things, the two occurrences of "the sentence" have the same referent, but the two occurrences of &q...

Re: What-If 0057: "Dropping a Mountain"

The citations here are super cute. I started noticing at Citation 4, which is self-aware of the fact that there are a lot of citations. =D

Re: 1193: Externalities

After clearing out the duplicates, Phoenix still stands at 399. At the very least whatever was typed to get that has not yet been duplicated.

Re: 1193: Externalities

Someone posted a formula a few pages back : http://forums.xkcd.com/viewtopic.php?p=3315270#p3315270 Don't ask me if it's right or wrong, I don't have a clue. That as me, and looking back at my post just now I see I had a typo that I now have corrected. According to that formula, the chance of getti...

Re: 1193: Externalities

Aww, someone is washing out the scores; the 399 Phoenix jumped to 398 (small improvement, but still), along with a huge list of other sites.

Re: Programming buddy

Well, can't say I can help with the programming stuff, you might be more experienced than I am. But, I had never heard of Project Euler before, and just wanted to thank you for showing it to me. It looks like a lot of fun!

Re: 1193: Externalities

I'm kind of sad to see that nobody from Phoenix did any better than my 399 score from random button mashing. Then again, it's not exactly a school full of computer wizzes, so random button mashing was probably the best we could do around here. xD Buy lottery tickets. That was crazy lucky. :D I have...

Does baidu have offices in the vicinity of NYC? Also, anyone konw what particular location might be the one referred to as a 4 hour drive away? My guess is Randall's hometown of Somerville, MA: https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&rlz=1C1SKPM_enUS405US409&q=somerville,+ma+to+new+york+city&...

Re: 1193: Externalities

It looks like nobody has added a NASDAQ-100 company to the new Wikipedia target page of Jean-Luc Picard.

I'm blocked and too dumb to change my IP address at the moment. Unless someone gets on this, we'll be stuck with... *shudders*... Apple.

Re: 1193: Externalities

Ah, I have been (once again) banned from Wikipedia for unwarranted, plagiaristic edits, but I must say that it was absolutely worth it for the brief few seconds that 'Adobe' was the company in question.
