Ingress in NOLA is great. That is all.

I will be in New Orleans until Tuesday. Wish me luck.

Have fun.  Don't pick any fights with Vince.

Ah, Vince. I wouldn't even know where to begin looking.

I will be in New Orleans until Tuesday. Wish me luck.

Then again, I'm all regulatory, so I may be acting harsh.

Also, had to fire Tiny Killer Neckbeard today.


What happened?

He dropped the ball on some EPA regulatory shit.  Again.

His head just wasn't in the game.  That can be actually fatal in this biz.

There are people who think Consequentialism isn't so bad, and then there are people who have to deal with regulations.

Basically, he was getting to the Next Big Thing, and ignoring the "that fucks with 27 lines of text that say not to do it that way."

I hope it opens things up, but I fear it's just another case of adding a zero to the equation.

Got my flu shot.
Now I have autism.

Ah! I see what you're saying!

It's like the weird math around "infinity prime", "infinity / 2", "infinity squared", etc.

You can play fascinating games with it, but if you're dealing with an electron probability distribution, it still ends up with the same equation.

I don't think I've ever made it through an episode of Sherlock before falling asleep.

I'm pretty sure that's banned under the Geneva Convention.

Very cool.  I'll go check it out.

And thanks.

Ok, that looks tasty.

I think it's related to Emotional Appeal.

So, just because why not, I think this is the new science thread.

And this is some fucking trippy science right here:

In quantum mechanics, particles do not have a distinct position in space. Instead, they exist as a wave function, a probability distribution that includes all the possible locations where a particle might be found. Maris and his colleagues are suggesting that parts of that distribution can be separated and cordoned off from each other.

So, my thought on this is that it really doesn't matter how small the probability subsegment is, it's still technically infinite.

Interesting.  It's sort of like gaming the system -- increasing the probability the electron will "be" in a certain "place"*.  I'm not so sure about the measurement implications they raise, but it is really cool.

*In quotes because those words do not accurately describe what's happening.

No, but I can say, "I found over $7,000,000 of outstanding loans that were never reported."
