Re: Can you produce [X] in less than 15 seconds?

Does a magnetron qualify as a vacuum tube?

Spoiler:
Light bulbs aren't vacuum tubes by the way, they're filled with inert gas (usually argon or nitrogen).


A germanium diode or transistor?

Re: 1983 - Clutter

Well, there's caveats I suppose. As a non-homeowner/renter, I'm either living in a prefurnished place, or when not, have gotten very good at the craigslist shuffle. I can fill a place with furniture in a couple days, then turn it all back over just as fast when I move out, for about the same price....

The thing is, while I’m familiar with SI units, I’m far, far more familiar with US customary ones. I know very well just how long it takes me to walk a mile — but I’m of sure how long it takes me to walk a km (it’ll be faster than a mile, but by how much?).

The point is that most imperial units were originally picked to be convenient for what people wanted to measure, while metric units are chosen to be convenient to convert between, and/or define by experiment rather than by comparison with a pre-calibrated measure. For example, the meter was defined...

Re: The Seven Deadly Zens Mafia - D1 Begins!

Best case scenario (for them) is that mafia only need 3 dead, but that also involves the right specific players being dead, so still hard for mafia to win without majority. Yes, but winning after only three deaths is possible even if only one mafia is left at that point and the same goes for a mafi...

Re: The Seven Deadly Zens Mafia - D1 Begins!

In a setup with no power roles at all 6-1 is actually a roughly balanced setup (54% Town win rate). 5-2 is extremely scumsided (20% Town win rate). I'm not sure if those stats work here considering the mafia win condition is quite unusual. The fact that mafia can win without being the majority make...
