I am now trolling the piss out of some crazy bitch in Florida who is terrified of chemicals by telling her about the occurrence of dodecarbonate in all oils, and how lauric acid dodecarbonate, which is a prime component of coconut oil, is also present in cheap shampoo and has been infecting her cells since conception.

Fucking oil pullers, telling me I don't know chemistry, when CARBON 12 IS PRESENT IN EVERYTHING.

What's an oil puller there?
Are you sure you have those systematic names right? I see wikipedia says lauric acid = dodecanoic acid. Carbon-12 is also the most abundant isotope of carbon, though, so I can't really be sure what you're saying here.

Apparently all bills have failed.

I'm sure we're all surprised.

There's an uncomfortable possibility that there's no improvement attainable through single new statutes.

Horror of horrors, there's nothing for the legislature to do. I guess it frees up time for posturing and negotiating on other topics.

Or has grinman been through enough already?

Obama has said there's no direct evidence linking the gunman to Islamic State.

Form what I heard it seems like it's complicated. I heard that he had said he was doing it in the name of ISIS but he wasn't actually working for ISIS; that he was just some random lunatic who had been influenced by their propaganda.

Seems like an easy way to be even edgier.

ISIS is the new Anonymous that way. I wish it was the new Anonymous more in the memes and dressing like idiots and not killing anybody way instead.


Anonymous has been a fucked-shitless shit since some time between the V mask and Chanology. The name and concept was given a form, and thus trapped in physical reality, time, space. The common id lost an outlet.

Get out.

Please explain.

My perspective is limited. I want to know.

This is awful, the world just seems to be getting shittier and shittier over the last few years. I feel horrible for the families and friends of the victims.

Don't believe the hype, mate, it'll only get you down. There was a ton of cool shit happened over the weekend but none of that ever reaches the front page. Sure, 50 people dying is a shame. Doubly so cos the reason they died was one guy being a total dick but people die every day, it's the downside of being made out of slowly decaying meat.

The important thing is to not get all bent out of shape cos some people died. The important thing is to keep a cool head and a bit of perspective and not go waving a fistful of liberties in the air, demanding that something is done to stop this ever happening again.

Cos it will happen again (there will always be dicks) The guys who are offering to make it go away in exchange for those shiny liberties? They're the biggest dicks of all and they never offer refunds even when they fail to deliver.

but other heads will not stay cool.
a machine or submachine is spinning up

Doubleposting now that the film is online again.

They're saying it wrote the script but I'm guessing it wrote the dialogue. I've read tons of movie scripts and dialogue is probably about 10% of most of them, the lions share being scene and action description and even camera and lighting direction in some. There was a link to the PDF of the script in the article I found this on but it was 404ing last night. I'd be interested to see it, tho.

Well, shit's being pulled but this article clarifies that the program wrote dialogue and described actions:

    On watching the film, many of my friends did not realize that the action descriptions as well as the dialogue were computer generated. After examining the output from the computer, the production team made an effort to choose only action descriptions that realistically could be filmed, although the sequences themselves remained bizarre and surreal. The actors and production teamís interpretations and realizations of the computerís descriptions was a fascinating case of human-machine collaboration.

    For example, here is the stage direction that led to Middleditchís character vomiting an eyeball early in the film:
    C (smiles): I donít know anything about any of this.
    H (to Hauk, taking his eyes from his mouth): Then what?
    H2: Thereís no answer.


Likewise, the video URL if access ever comes again:

Can't see the article.

Just guessing at the exact content, but note:
self-assembling is different from self-replicating.

Sand in a bag is weakly self-assembling: pour it slowly, and you get a roughly conical shape with a particular slope.

  • 27% crazy is the new Planetary Pi.
  • You're showing us 27% crazy in response to particular questions.  That doesn't guarantee it's always the same 27%.
  • We could have 27% on each pole of a poll, for a total of 54% nuts.

Tha hell? http://www.aclu.org/national-security_technology-and-liberty/are-you-living-constitution-free-zone

Nothing new (2006) but it states:

 "Using data provided by the U.S. Census Bureau, the ACLU has determined that nearly 2/3 of the entire US population (197.4 million people) live within 100 miles of the US land and coastal borders.

"The government is assuming extraordinary powers to stop and search individuals within this zone. This is not just about the border: This " Constitution-Free Zone" includes most of the nation's largest metropolitan areas."

zero width spaces, probably introduced to let the URL flow onto more lines.

I iamgine with the heat turned up that the bag was both to reduce smell and aid decomposition. But does that mean they were going to come back for the bag after the body rotted enough? Why leave it there?

implant/swallowed key?
Lower profile than using modern imaging, maybe.

Paper sent in to a mid-low ranked journal, rejected in 2 days at the editorial level (no reviews) for being "not of significant enough impact to warrant publication". Wrote an appeal to the EiC (blah blah, of course it's significant you moron!) 2 days later get a computer generated email congratulating me on having the paper accepted by the journal, and giving details on how to upload all the reqired files for publication (hi-res images etc.) Sent in the files, got the paper in press and with page #s. About 3 months later got an email from the EiC saying they had looked at our appeal and would be sending it out for peer review after all. I politely pointed out it was already in print, and got no response. Weird!
