thought to themselves "wait, maybe giving the crowd known for its strong opinions the ability to run down a channel and REPORT EVERYTHING BECAUSE FEMINISM/HATE SPEECH/GUNS/ETC is a very, very bad idea?
Some people just want to watch the worldwebsite burn.
So who saw that documentary called 2012 about the world flooding? Amazing reconstructions of what happened, though of course the CIA told everyone it was a 'disaster movie' rather than a documentary and the fact we don't remember it is because they drugged the water supply, in concert with the Russian and the Chinese government.
I finished reading a book (actually the second book in a duology). I used to be a voracious reader, then at some point "reading so many pages is a INSURMOUNTABLE MONUMENTAL TASK". All part of that self-sabotaging line of thinking that makes you not want to do things you enjoy you feel bad, so you feel like not wanting to do things you enjoy, so you feel bad... etc.
Bowl of Heaven and Shipstar, by Larry Niven and Edward Lerner. Good "Explore a Big Thing" adventure.
After a seven-hour shift running a photobooth and helping hundreds of customers I did, in fact, dream I was running a photobooth. I kept having fever-dream-style image montages, where I was trying to do something and not succeeding and the something had to do with taking pictures or greeting throngs of customers. Then I'd wake up, bite back a scream of pain, and try to get into a comfortable position so I could pass out again. Thank god for muscle relaxants or I'd not have slept at all.
Later, when it hurt less bad, I dreamed I was watching some anime about two girls in a very small space capsule playin some sort of game, and it was hard to tell who was speaking each statement: the girl who knew the game, the girl who was learning, or the automated scorekeeping capsule. I only figured out the one girl was learning the game and what the rules were by reading an article on Ars Technica about the manga, which was much clearer.
There was another dream fragment about being in a huge building and trying to get to a certain floor but the elevator was broken and I had a small cat and a big dog and the two didn't like each other, and there was a play I wanted to see, and after ages of elevator shenanigans I realized the play wasn't even going on that night.
Then I went to work and found out they'd moved all the desks and re-arranged the building over the weekend, and my boss was confused why nobody sent out a communication, but I was meant to report to someone's office for homeroom in place of doing company-wide announcements anymore, which was expected to cut back on email by 30%. Also, one of the floors had a walkway which was missing a railing and also several chunks from the floor so it was way easy to plummet to the floor below. I decided to work from home.
I woke up in the middle of trying to fill out a 50-shades-style contract for one of my RP characters while a really bitchy popular-girl type kept one-upping her in every way: my char would make chocolate-covered oreos for her boyfriend, and the bitchy girl brought him a cake, and then had the gall to look surprised and say "Oh, but this has nothing to do with her little cookie thing! Not even in the same league!"
@dkf My parents' computer has a headphone jack, next to the USB ports, from which you can system activity clear as day. Disk activity, and USB activity are loud, but the loudest thing is scrolling a website, I still have no idea why. Edge makes no noise, Chrome and IE make loud noise, this page makes a high "screech" on Chrome but all the other pages make a much lower noise.
CPU activity, RAM activity or screen pixels changing don't seem to make any noise by themselves. Maybe it's the GPU?
I'm more impressed by @dkf citations on google scholar, I don't really have a frame of reference for that,
I've worked with some very active academics and in fields where it is the norm to put the entire group's names on all publications. I don't write very many papers myself; they take a shit-load of work and I don't want to be mistaken for @boomzilla.
The dragon has been asleep for many long years. In that time, the cave under which it slumbered has changed greatly…Goblins and strange monsters have filled its gloomy depths and there are whispers that the cave itself has begun thinking, shifting, and growing evermore dangerous. Still,...
Has been quite fun.
I've had that one on my "think about getting this" list for a while. The asymmetrical gameplay really appeals to me.
[9/24/16 13:47] <Nyota> this fibonacci joke is as bad as the last two you heard combined
[9/24/16 13:47] <Onyx47> and the next one will be as bad as this and the previous one?
