Hey guys, remember how the forum had a psychotic breakout of in-fighting like clockwork around winter?

We need that back, cause in it's abscence it's the world that's doing it, and everything is on fire.

Pretty please.


It's actually funny cause we call "dinosaurs" all the older politicians which are sort of the equivalent of the "Ancien Regime"... mostly PRI politicians, the Senate and all the fuckers that are "plurinominals" (the ones that jump around different charges in different institutions, for different parties, depending where they need them).

I keep forgetting you weren't here for The Election, nor for the second half of the joke.

I was sort of, but no worries, the population is never here for The Electiontm in general terms  :lulz:

Dead people voting and all that jazz, and living people's votes getting nulled or thrown in the trash can.

“We have a behavioral problem,” McConnell said in a speech after receiving an award from the Kentucky Electric Cooperatives at the group’s annual meeting. “People are acting out and it’s not, I don’t think, limited to one ideological place or another. You’ve just got a lot of people engaging in bad behavior.”
“You read stories of young people, incentivized I think by the faculty actually on college campuses, who don’t want to hear anything they may disagree with,” he said. “It might upset them to be exposed to a point of view that they don’t always subscribe to — being brilliant, of course, and knowing everything at 18. I think that’s troublesome.”

Ok so, the liberals are unironically being called "degenerates", and now continuing with all the pseudo-psychological babble, "people are acting out"  :lulz:

Bonus points for infantilizing the opposition as well.

RIP library. So, I put my books in storage and since my new place doesn't have the shelf space, I left them there.

And then, the factory next to the warehouse burned down. And burned down the warehouse along with it. And my library.

I'm currently in the process of claiming my insurance based on my initial booking forms. But still, bleh.

 :cry: Ill pm you something that might be of use

Together, we are going to show the degenerate Trump Haters


Imagine using the word "degenerate" unironically in 2019.  :roll:

While I was disgusted at the whole thing, this paragraph pissed me off the most

There is no uniformed security guard at the entrance. The residents, girls 13-17, can call their families as needed, staff say, and there are more therapeutic services — including intensive treatment for victims of trafficking and abuse — throughout the week. They sleep two to a room, and are free to wander in a large, outdoor area, or “shop” in a store filled with donated items. Case workers hustle to reunite them with family in the U.S. quickly, averaging four weeks. And costs to taxpayers are a third of the $775 per day costs at large, emergency shelters where kids sleep 100 to a room.

It's still a prison. For children. Who have committed no crime.

Just because you've applied white collar day prison standards to how it's run do not negate those very basic facts.

No Cain, you don't understand anything at all - you see, as long as they have the "liberty" to "shop" in a "store" (grab donated junk from a pile, so they actually have something to wear), they have all their human rights and potentialities served.

All this newspeak disgusts me so much because its actually a thing now in everyday lives.

As human trash i find that discriminating, I already have enough everyday with raccoons harrassing and clawing at me.


I guess all the zombie and natural disaster media have succeded in their ideological purpose.

Make the population think they're the protagonists that will survive and repopulate the planet. While in reality the vast majority will die off regardless of their "preparation and unbreakable will", and those who actually survive will wish they were dead, and will merely live due to being at the right place at the right time.

-Silver and gold peddlers are getting rich
-Gun industry is having a boon
-Canned goods enterprises are laughing
-Big truck companies are chuckling as well

I for one, welcome our new Chinese overlords, the US is so overdue in its status as world power.


What the fuck is this thread

Hey, Fujikoma, protip: all videogaming communities are full of awful, awful fucking people and should be burned to the ground.

I don’t know what it is about videogaming that brings out the absolute worst in people, but even the queer heavy spaces get positively fucking horrific about shit like “SJWs” and “fake gamers”.

I managed to find TWO I could tolerate to date. The first one is for an unreleased XCOM-like called Phoenix Point. The second one was for the classic roguelike developer/fan community around RogueBasin. (I left that one due to some weird behavior of a user that in retrospect I think I misinterpreted the intent of.)

Somehow, both of those are perfectly fine. It’s uncanny not having to brace for Pepes and Nazi memes and rape threats where video games are involved, particularly in the communities for the hardest of the hardcore.

In my murky side of the internets, the appropriate term is "toxic communities" or the synonym "cancer communities".

Multiplayer games which revolve around ranked gameplay 100% are that way; story driven games/RPGs and communities rarely.

I mean, Burns, Cain, Faust and Roger (sorry if im missing someone) are good and reliable benchmarks for information, but we always need to rely on ourselves ultimately if its a topic we really care about.


Trolls died out, this is the era of assburgers  :sad:

This is going to end in baboonery.  * dude hasn't shown enough inflamed ass yet, he's just warming up.

You know it’s a good day when you can expect MORE inflamed ass to show up by the end of it. I’m just sad I won’t get to watch it live, I have work and shit.

Baboonery follows a formula.  It's more or less on rails.

Dare I say, it follows a pattern we have discovered from observing and registering cases of assburgers in this forum, which follow a linear regression pattern.  :fnord:


If you were an actual mathematician, I would think you might have the ability and inclination to post something relevant to this thread.

I'm betting you're a numerologist, at best.

Check out my reply to Doktor Howl. (And BTW, I got a doctorate in Mathematics and Computer Science.)
Ooh, I got a nibble.

Claiming you have a doctorate means nothing (welcome to the internet).  And even if you do have one, I've been around the block enough times to recognize that it's quite possible for someone to hold a PhD and still be a blithering idiot in most respects.

I know about blithering idiots in the Internet. (I locked horns with Archimedes Plutonium for about a year.)

In fact, I'm replying to a post by one.

For example, here you are, with your LOL OMG 23, and your low effort shitposting, while your above reply to Doktor Howl suggests that you lack even a freshman-level understanding of statistics.

Oh, so you're using my posts in different contexts to try to insult me here, then. And you forgot to look up my posts to the Visual Pinball forum, and half of my Usenet posts. Non sequitur! (Besides, I figured that's the type of posts that a Discordian forum would be like; I didn't expect stick-up-your-ass-type posts.)

(Some of us actually use freshman-level statistics in our day job.  For example, linear regression can be used to perform timing estimation of an OFDM signal in the presence of noise.  It's good for other things, too, as long as you recognize its limitations.  Not voodoo.)

Linear regression is a minimization problem, which belongs to mathematics proper. (I teach it in my linear algebra classes, by the way, which would put it there.) Nothing random about that.

And as for "not voodoo" ... There are TWO definitions of standard deviation (one with N in the denominator, and one with N-1 in the denominator). If not voodoo, it certainly suggests the old joke about an interviewer and a shady guy: "How much is 2+2?" "How much do you want it to be?"
