Re: What made you feel incredibly stupid?

I was sitting around talking with some of my friends, and we were talking about how one of my friends always has a ton of books that he's willing to lend. At one point, I say "You know, it would be great if there were a place where a person could rent books and then return them when done!"...

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts (now with 20% more fungus!)

I want a pair of night vision goggles. You know, the mil-spec binocular type. Those would be so fun. My hometown is in the middle of hundreds of miles of forest, so this would be great (until I get mauled by a bear).

Re: I want to talk about Michael Jackson

It was kinda weird. I've never really listened to his music - the only songs of his I know are "Beat It," "Smooth Criminal," and "Thriller" but I kinda gasped and felt odd when I read the news. I think it's because he's always been around since I was alive, and has alwa...

Re: (trying to) Voting out Ahmadinejad

Yeah. Early on, the tweets seemed pretty good, but right now, I just don't know. I find it amusing how "Old media is dead. Social media is in" tweets are juxtaposed with "CONFIRMED: Army moving on protesters NOW!!!1!!! RETWEET!!!!!!" tweets. As a hardcore technoliberal, I love th...

Re: Almost empty genres you'd like to see games for

Whatever happened to the hardcore tactical shooter genre? I'm playing Rainbow Six: Vegas 2, and it's a really awesome game, but it's so far from the original concept. I miss the whole "Plot out your action, and execute it carefully" style of it. It seems like you could make something reall...

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts (now with 20% more fungus!)

I really dig the chorus to Elton John's "Tiny Dancer". Y'know, at about, 2:33, where he kinda swoops in with that falsettoish chorus. You can't not sing along. Actually, in general I just love Elton John. Seriously, I played the album "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" to death last fall.

Re: Logical fallacies/douchebaggery in commercials.

I saw a web ad for an anti-piracy agency on a sidebar in slashdot. It talked about how you should anonymously turn in people for piracy and receive a $10,000 reward.

Re: Consequences to P=NP

I haven't had a formal theory course yet, but this is something that I have wondered about for a while now, and relates to this topic eventually.

Re: What's in a number?

I feel a "number" is more of a meta-mathematical term than it is a pue mathematical concept. As such, I think we can get away with a less precise definition. I'd suggest: "A Meta-Mathematical Description for elements of commonly used Algebraic Structures (such as, for Example the Nat...
