Re: Antifa & neo-Nazi Ned in: "Too Many Violence?"

A question for people bringing up 'where do you draw the line about who is punchable'. In what world is someone claiming to be actively working towards genocide not across the 'stop with violence' line? I've watched streams where people have been raided by swat via an anonymous tip about a bomb as a...

Re: Let's talk about race, 2017 edition

I mean, climate change has a deadline. Some say we've already passed it. Space travel has a deadline in the form of space junk getting too far out of hand before we can setup a way to clean it up. Racism doesn't, barring some kind of mass extinction event drastically changing the makeup of the human...

Re: Let's talk about race, 2017 edition

Talk about how you draw that distinction. How does "statues of men who fought to keep slavery, erected during an upsurge in white on black violence" sound as a standard of statues that should probably get taken down for being racist? The slippery slope that leads to the destruction of all...

Re: 1002: "Game AIs"

It isn't an issue in starcraft ais. The game is pretty small. So much of a non issue that we can speed up the game by 50-100 times speed. We were really only limited by how fast we could render frames. Some of my anti-stealth work and a bad ''sell all buildings before they get destroyed'' script wou...

Re: Trump presidency

I've recently starting seeing comments along the lines of 'Trump broke the law in office'. To my fairly limited comedy-news derived knowledge he hasn't done a whole lot of anything at all.

Did I miss something somewhere, or is this just people parroting stuff?

Re: 1805: "Unpublished Discoveries"

So, have you tried just taking screenshots of it, then putting those into an online image-to-pdf converter?

Re: 1002: "Game AIs"

Yo, I worked on a starcraft AI for a university project last year. Our tournament website: http://www.cs.mun.ca/~dchurchill/starcraftaicomp/ - The current implementation used in tournaments only allows the AI information that a truly perceptive player with perfect memory can aquire. I.E. they know t...

Re: 1736: "Manhattan Project"

Really, actually curing cancer likely requires understanding and control of genetics and nanotechnology on a level so advanced that I'm not sure I've ever read a scifi story that has had it available to the general public.

Its probably about as easy to solve telomere degradation and cure aging.

Re: My write-up of the "Blue Eyes" solution (SPOILER A

That summary thread really ought to be in the first post. It is very likely that I am having trouble getting into the right headspace here. I was very tempted to simply ask why each person doesn't just assume for a moment that the guide is talking about their own eye color, as I viewed the ferry as ...

Re: My write-up of the "Blue Eyes" solution (SPOILER A

You're missing the depth of the "know" chain, though. Sure, I know that Erica sees at least 98 blue-eyed people, and maybe it happens that David also knows that Erica sees at least 98 blue-eyed people, but I don't know that . What I know is that Bob knows that Carol knows that David knows...

I only see 99 blue-eyed people; I know that Bob sees at least 98 blue-eyed people; I know that Bob knows that Carol sees at least 97 blue-eyed people; I know that Bob knows that Carol knows that David sees at least 96 blue-eyed people; I know that Bob knows that Carol knows that David knows that Er...

On the topic of Adblock and hurting the people who make stuff we like...

Is it possible/legal/detectable to use an Adblock-esqe program that would mark the ads as viewed/clicked?
