Re: Coolest Topic in Math?

It would be if you created a short story in pure mathematics/physics. You might not be exposed to all of the formulas but if you studied a bit you guys could get it. For example, start with an apple hanging from a tree. Calculate it's potential energy as it hangs from the tree. The apple falls and t...

Re: Becoming Less Cynical/Negative

Curious. I've had the exact opposite experience, in having teachers tell overly optimistic classmates to, essentially, stop blindly convincing themself everything will be as it is in Happy Fun Sunshine Land. ie, while cynicism takes nothing, optimism is wasted effort, because it doesn't change the ...

Re: Roommates for College

Just go with a random roommate. Just think, you have the opportunity to gain an awesome lifelong friend OR gain an awesome story you'll be telling the rest of your life. Either way there's a lot of fun in not knowing.

Or pick the guy you think is the cutest.

Re: favorite lines/quotes from books

There is an idea of a Patrick Bateman; some kind of abstraction. But there is no real me: only an entity, something illusory. And though I can hide my cold gaze, and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable... I simply a...

Wow, it's like I'm reading about myself. Seriously, I was exactly like you in middle and high school. Except in my day we didn't have /b/, so I resorted to putting rats in a microwave to see what would happen. They explode. Like you, I also was creative, smart, and didn't do my homework at home.

Re: Java compilation-yes, I'm a moron.

I understand the concept of bytecode and the VM; i've gotten code to compile within an (unfortunately windows-specific) IDE at school. However, are you sure that you are saying the right things? I have a .java (containing several classes); i want to make a .class. I have a JVM already, and in any c...

Re: Java compilation-yes, I'm a moron.

Well Java doesn't exactly get compiled in the traditional sense in that it becomes an executable. The source code is converted into java byte code which is then interpreted by the java virtual machine. Anyways, are you specifying the path when you run javac? Navigate to the folder containing your cl...

I watched Summer Heights High last night and found it, like you said, funny in a weird twisted kind of way. I mean, having a dude playing the popular transfer chick.. wtf. And the flamboyant drama teachers lol. This show makes fun of so many people in a very dry humorous sort of way. Funniest part a...

Re: V for Vendetta Movie (spoiler alert!)

I saw the movie and really liked it. I liked the love subplot too. It's Natalie Portman, how could you NOT like seeing her? I'm going to throw out an ad hominem and say you're INCREDIBLY COOL AND FASHIONABLE if you didn't like the subplot.
Seriously, do you people not read the rules? -ST

Re: md5(x) = x

md5 hash collision has been proven as seen by the link. but there does not exist an x where md5(x) = x. sorry not possible. I think we all know about md5's collision issue, but the claim that it has no fixed points is interesting. Proof or citation to back that up? While it is common for functions ...
