    If you could get the answer to any question , which one would you ask?

    that would be a great thing. If some superhuman deity appeared and granted us one question answered with certainty, in this chaotic world, and as the whole world watches you and hold their breath as you are about to ask the question, you say: ... why is yo mom so fat

    I found some funny quiz, "intersectionality"

    come on... if you have a low intersectionality score, you can "get more involved with Islam or Judaism"? this stuff is clearly a joke

    I found some funny quiz, "intersectionality"

    intersectionality is a fascinating thing though, because it sort of explains the curious soup of opinions held by young people nowadays – in particular the combination of SJWness and anti-capitalism. Du Bois, the forefather of intersectionality, was a great admirer of Stalin, Mao Zedong, and...

    Just saying hi

    @onesteptwostep none of us have irl experience? Speak for yourself, sir. I personally have experimented with whole lotta different approaches over the years, and made the point of putting myself into a wide range of situations to learn from. But I guess in the end, it is true to some extent...

    Just saying hi

    I think it's all about just acting naturally (i.e. in line with your own personality, even if it means being an introvert) and try to be as relaxed as possible. Forget the stuff people told you that having social skills is about talking a lot, talking very loudly, or showing a lot of emotion or...

    If you could get the answer to any question , which one would you ask?

    I hope that was a joke :p besides, pi is an irrational number – it's physically impossible to get its complete decimal expansion as for me, I don't see too much value in having one question answered, but I guess I would use it on some unsolved mathematical/scientific question, e.g. is N=NP...

    Otaku - a short history

    I've heard there's a growing epidemic in japan of people who live in 2x2 meter apartments and play video games 24/7 and never go outside. They had some specific name – not sure if its weeabo or something else

    Captain Marvel

    I agree in that I don't really understand why a bunch of grown-ass men get worked up over some supposed politicization of a superhero movie. It's similar to the battlefield 5 situation where people started going "but it's not realisitic that there's a woman there maaaaaan". Who gives a shit...

    Brie Larson looks like the absolutely most average scandinavian chick ever. I got bored with looking at her bland face just from watching the trailer.

    Hacking reality - an analogy between computer systems and reality as we perceive it

    @Animekitty I sort of get what you're saying, but at the same time, when we're talking about for example computationally undecidable problems, their undecidability is not necessarily defined by the inability of sequential logic to solve them, but rather that it's impossible to use sequential...

    Hacking reality - an analogy between computer systems and reality as we perceive it

    @Animekitty I feel it's easy to come up with math problems not solvable on a computer but which are routinely done in nature. Something as simple as computing the trajectory of a planet can never be done exactly on a computer, as you would need infinite-precision number storage. Even something...

    Life Extension: where it's at and where it's going

    what about the general degradation of your DNA via mutation? It seems you would have to keep replacing every single cell in your body and keep a "clean", unmutated copy of your original DNA somewhere but I guess that's for a more ambitious plan of remaining alive indefinitely. I can definitely...

    Hacking reality - an analogy between computer systems and reality as we perceive it

    I think it makes sense to bring that analogy to the level of a single brain – i.e. how do you access regions in your own brain and thus gain a more holistic perception of things. On a general reality level? Dunno, I tend to think that modelling reality in terms of computation is misguided...

    ADD vs. INTP

    I have unbelievably bad memory when it comes to stuff that isn't a part of some logical structure. For example people's names. Earlier today, actually, I was going to send an email to a colleague, and was sitting there thinking "what the fuck was this guy's name". I have worked with him for a...

    I don't know.

    self-consistency and homeostasis are vastly stronger instincts than self-improvement. A human would rather retain its flaws and complexes for the sake of maintaining a "self". let go of the self, become the sum of your actions.

    Super Smash Bros (Ultimate?)

    I noticed that when I tried mariokart. It's like playing goddamn roulette. Reminded of poker – you can only play the game statistically, and the difference between the skilled and unskilled can remain invisible for many games.

    The Random Thoughts Thread

    indeed, all scientific and technological progress has been made by people who thought certain problems were interesting, as opposed to thinking about their utility for humanity. E.g. Von Neumann invented computers to do atomic-bomb calculations, and wanted to make atomic bombs just because it...

    some people learn better from pain (perhaps most people?). I think when kids are pampered too much and never experience the pain of failing or fucking up, they don't acquire self-regulatory and self-motivating capabilities. So when they do eventually fuck up (like everyone does at some point)...

    did baccheion suggest multivitamins and nootropics as the solution to existential angst? I'm shocked :p anyways.. there's no value in being INTP when you're young. It's a long-term investment. Eventually you'll start seeing how lack of introspection and thoughtfulness eventually catches up to...

    Is there such thing as perfect morality?

    a lot of issues that pertain to morality in society as a whole are complex, scientific questions – which is a problem if one is to imagine us approaching perfect morality. That would necessitate everyone becoming highly scientifically literate, or alternatively, turning societies into...

    Generally, does love find you or do you have to find it or work for it?

    When sitting behind a keyboard, everyone likes to put aspects of dating into neat little boxes and provide "solutions" as if they are talking about a video game. The classic internet-forum solution is: "just go to her and tell her that you love her, man"... or "just figure out if she likes you...

    Black Panther

    Your 9 to 5 experience

    well, I had one like that.

    Making Money

    most people who made it big are typically entrepreneurs. A lot of entrepreneurs fail because they take risks – risks that, if turn out to pay off, benefit society as a whole. Some of these become large businesses that provide jobs, economic growth, and benefits for you and me – like the ability...

    Making Money

    in my experience, people who don't know how to make money are the most stingy, greedy, opportunistic and parasitic people you can find. Resourceful people who have money and know how to make money tend to be the opposite in every way. another thing I have observed is that most people simply...
