Re: 1275: "int(pi)"

!+[]+!+[]+!+[] is 3 in javascript. Also, Astronomers often take pi to be 3 (or even sometimes 1) and pi^2 to be 10 when dealing with large numbers (the kind where you want the order of magnitude to be within an order of magnitude (wrap you're head around that!))

Re: 1086: "Eyelash Wish Log"

"Feb 06 That wish-granting entities be required to interpret wishes in accordance with the intent of the wisher" I didn't really understand the point of that one until I re-read the list and realized the previous wish was to be given unlimited eyelashes and thought how that could be inter...

Re: 0851: "Na"

For me, NA first meant Nondeterministic Automaton; it being a directed graph with multiple branches and no labels. Usually though, it's NDA not NA, and then I saw batman, and it clicked.

Re: "Dirty Harry" Discussion

That reminds me of the matrix #1 when they walk into the first floor of the tall building and there's that long drawn out gun fight. I remember someone commenting "hey these guns actually run out of bullets... They just don't run out of guns"

Re: "Psychic" Discussion

The fact that twice, people have posted the fallacy that 2 randomly chosen number between 1-100 have a 1/100 * 1/100 or 1/10000 chance of being correct, gives me an idea. If you DO play this trick on someone, regardless of if you end up being right or wrong, tell them (not ask them) that you only ha...

Re: "Drama" Discussion

This reminds me of a quote from "A Beautiful Mind" where Nash is talking to a woman in the bar and says, "I don't exactly know what I am required to say in order for you to have intercourse with me. But could we assume that I said all that. I mean essentially we are talking about flui...
