Re: brain in a vat

It would be a pretty weak AI if it wasn't programmed to wait a random amount of time before responding (presuming the AI is designed to simulate a human). It would not be hard to develop a good random function for this from real human data. No random number generator in code is really random. It wi...

Re: brain in a vat

Ask the same question repeatedly to both windows, do this over a long peroid of time and each time note the response time from both IMs, note the response time each time in a histogram etc. The one response that seems to be more "truely" random is the probably the human?

Re: Libertarianism, socialism, and differing views of reality

Simple is better?

Libertarians - Brain, but No Heart.

Socialists - Heart, but No Brain.

This sort of unsupported, non-contributory drivel is not what SB is here for. And since this is the second time in as many SB posts that I've had to break out the purple, user warned.

Re: Let's Talk About Energy Production

Lets talk about a pet peeve of mine. People love to talk about hydrogen as a great "green" fuel source. Don't you silly people realize that most hydrogen comes from a process called "reformation" from natural gas! Only "water" my ass. Ok... some of you might have unders...

Re: Stackoverflow

I thank god for sites like this, I learned to become a good programmer just over time by reading other idiots having questions like this myself. Though you are right a google search will turn up results. However, the more results you have for one stupid question when learning the better. I understan...

Re: Five Towers

I think a strategy of 3-6s and 12-1s would be interesting. Always place a one till you have 6s left at the end. You should distribute your ones fairly evenly at least to pressure him to spread out his cards as well. This plays to your advantage because towards the end you are able to place your card...

The 3rd one is in braille but you screwed up on it slightly. It should be: (24) (1245, 15, 2345) (2345, 125, 15) (124, 15, 15, 123, 24 , 1345, 1245) (2345, 125, 24, 234) (24, 234) (1245, 135, 24, 1345, 1245) (2345, 135) (1, 1345, 1...
