Holy fuckballs, they've finally cracked reliable mass production of pure graphene!

http://www.thomas-swan.co.uk/sites/pdf/adv_materials_datasheets/TS_Graphene_datasheet_lo.pdf

"What the fuck is graphene?" you ask.

By bye plastics, you're not needed anymore.

Anyone want a mobile battery that lasts a month and charges in under a minute and weighs less than a sheet of paper?

This is BIG fucking news :fap:
Love it.  How long before we hatch a graphene loaf fully exploiting possibilities of QED architecture...  I mean, why don't I have one already :aaa:

Yea, I wonder what they're trying to prove with all that disclosure.  There is a possibility she's just waiting to hear something like - "oh, that's so hot".  Otherwise, I generally ave to learn some still about "expert knot tying", imagination notwithstanding  :lol:

Yeah, I don't know. What does she want? Validation? Approval? For me to join her? In general my attitude towards that kind of thing is "Good for you, have fun!". I just don't really care how other people get their monkey on, if they're having a good time then I'm happy for them but hearing the details reminds me most closely to listening to someone go on and on about how cute their cats are and all the funny things they do.

Unfortunately, she may not even be oblivious to your being taken-aback.  Perhaps she is intimidated by you and this is how she tries to re-assert being in control.  Because she can't actually get you, she simulates the act by involving your imagination in the recreation of her fantasy.  By proxy, she feels one step closer conquest.  Probably borderline personality. 

I feel dirty just for saying that :horrormirth:

513
Well, I'm glad everyone decided the second reason for me.  No need for me to explain it now, is there?
Totally speculating, I wonder if they may be mild MAOI's, competing for market share against Pfizer and Nestle :lulz:

When I was in elementary school, I wanted to be an artist when I grew up.

Today, my house is a mess of fabric scraps, paint, power tools, and empty coffee mugs while I dance around to Depeche Mode because I'm way too caffeinated and want to procrastinate.

I don't think this is what I had in mind at age 9.

It's so much better than I expected, and this would have been the last thing I ever anticipated doing.  Now I figure it was really the fuel for all the stuff I thought I wanted to do.

Regrets: 
  • probably won't get clearence anytime soon (fuck it)
  • Might not get to pilot a jet at any significant G's (still coming to terms with that :lulz:)

If I had to, I'd bet I'm not missing much  :lulz:

I just broke a fucking  tooth.

The earliest dental appointment at the clinic that takes my broke-ass student coverage is in July. :(
That's just not right.  You need to talk to someone else at the clinic.  I mean, are they paying for the fucking ensure till then?  Or else?  These are the kinds of things that get my dog all agitated and such...

Does the student body have a cafeteria that serves rice?  It would not look good if they served you something undercooked that chipped your smile.  That touches a nerve :argh!:

So, you'll still be coating your body with rendered bear fat beforehand, as usual?

yeah.

For grip, he chalks-up pulverized dragon-skulls

This definition of "Dissolvence" made the top-down notion of submersion turn and click:

Far from being a destruction, dissolvence is understood here as a creative process in which information is generated to fuel the process of self-organisation of complex systems, allowing them to appear and evolve to higher states of organisation and emergence.

Very cool stuff, although initially somewhat "brute-force" in their articulation of "recognition" :lulz:
Quote
What will be argued here is that the scope of recognition processes between parts is increased when preceded by their dispersal, which multiplies the number of encounters and creates a richer potential for recognition.


Very interesting, reading it now.  Funny how B.Testa is like de facto authority on subject.  With "Dissolvence" the only other paper I found was also his - my browser won't let me see it:
http://idc311-www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0065249097800032
(More about drug research or something)

And, of course, the cellular automata approach:

--- Back to the text at hand----

http://www.mdpi.com/1099-4300/11/4/993

So, first read initially started me thinking that increasing the number and variety of encounters, by dispersion, does not immediately obtain greater probability of recognition.  I think the discriminating factor would have to the repetition of particular encounters.  Although by dispersion the number of encounters increases, their repetition, discrimination and recognition would only increase at the expense of variety...

Then I realize that might be addressed by "The Kullback-Lieber Divergence", although I have no idea why.  Then my understanding of Top-Down" in the context of submersion indicates that I should probably give this a second pass...  Sleepy time now.

Wow :lulz: :lulz: :lulz:

Then:
Quote
. The people who were chanting have accused him of silencing survivors of domestic abuse by writing a critique of call-out culture in his essay,

Fishy premise.  I could not read the essay because Last night I heard the screaming...  Loud voices behind the wall... Prayed that I was dreaming... and then it occurred to me that the author was probably speaking to the effect that we are not addressing the real source of violence when we turn against each other.  Freely, we willfully do violence to ourselves when we fall for the trap of playing prisoner/informant and guard.  This is just a physical extension of the panopticon being transparently deployed.

So my wild guess is that the provocateurs were calling-out for a demonstration of principle.  The outcome suggests more thinking on the subject is necessary.  I might forgive them calling the police if something really outrageos happened, however I doubt that was the case.

Entropy is the loss of energy in the form of heat

True.  Thermodynamically, entropy is heat loss, although that is primarily understood in terms of dispersion.  The heat is only "lost" because it does [not] obey the orders of Maxwel' Deamon.  I mean it's not like I don't sympathise with errant energy quanta trying to escape oppressive regimes :lulz:

Cool.  Could the capacity of DNA to maintain and replicate itself be considered an apparent tendency toward order?  Clearly this is not my field, I just thought it would work to view complex biological systems as a definition of emergence in the face of entropy.  I'll brush up on it once Nigel finishes the reading list. :)

THERES MORE!?!  You, EoC, are clearly out to spoil me rotten.  Thank you!


LuciferX carefully removes his jacket and places it on the chair by the table.  He sits and tucks a handkerchief over the front of his thin black tie.  Before him, on virgin parchment, his mellifluous meal lay supine.
