    A problem from oxford interview

    I'm not approaching this from a programming perspective, but the simplest approach I can see is to add all the numbers together. If there is a single missing number, then it will be the difference between that and 999,999. If there are multiple missing numbers, then doing this will have made a...

    Do you respond to depressed individuals with hostility?

    I feel hostility towards depressed people, but this is because I'm seeing myself in them. I realise this and avoid actually responding to them with hostility.

    Sabbaticals

    I took a gap year working for an automotive parts companies development lab. About a year or two before I started they had a lab manager with almost a lifetime of experience who knew every piece of kit inside out, he asked for a sabbatical and this was refused so he took early retirement...

    Liquid lunch

    I'm quite interested in intermittent fasting. The method which seems a good starting point is one where two to three days a week you restrict your diet to a single 600 calorie meal. However I'm fairly active at the moment and this is incredibly hard to achieve, I have done it unintentionally in...

    Liquid lunch

    Liquid lunches will make you ill if you do them with any regularity. The lack of fibre will just start messing with your digestive system in unpleasant ways. The closest thing to a wonderfood you can get is a bag of mixed fruit and nuts, it's pretty much just as convenient as a drink, you can...

    It hasn't even been released, you wouldn't download a car that hasn't been build yet would you? (I've pre-ordered the vinyl. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but I'll be downloading it anyway)

    who wants to talk? (intp social thread)

    Is there any penalty if you pause for too long? Either way, you would probably find that some simple meditation and breathing exercises would help you a lot.

    Ask me any question and I'll answer it.

    Indeed :D Not homework, actual work. Not so much the change in friction, as whether there is a point where the friction suddenly changes. Although it is actually very complicated and depends on a lot of things such as temperature and humidity. There's plenty of scientific literature on the...

    Most likely, it encourages the body to stay in "repair" mode mode which means it prefers using fat to storing it. It also cuts the levels of insulin-like growth factor.

    Instant is indeed foul. If you want to try proper coffee without going to a cafe, the easiest method is a coffee cone, and a bag of decent quality grounds.

    who wants to talk? (intp social thread)

    I've always believed that being able to drink coffee right before falling asleep is less to do with the individuals metabolism, but instead is just a sign of addiction. This is only anecdotal evidence too, but most people I know who regularly drink coffee or tea in the evening are always quite...

    who wants to talk? (intp social thread)

    Got about a third of the way through so far. I think the general gist of what she is saying is correct, but she is grossly uninformed and opinionated. For example she is saying no fruits or vegetables contain any vitamin A, that we can't digest protein in plants, and that there are no fats in...

    who wants to talk? (intp social thread)

    The biggest problem with the modern diet is the focus on cheap carbs. The positive effects you have experienced are probably mostly due to cutting out grains. We can't digest parts of the grain properly -our bodies produce antibodies in response to gluten- which aside from causing coeliac...

    I hate you because you're a Republican

    Because the human race evolved in tribal and familial groups. It's in our nature to separate ourselves into "us and them", it doesn't just apply to things like politics, our entire society is built upon it, from the school playground to the world leaders. There is a double whammy here, as we are...

    Well, this is awkward...

    It turns out that I'm actually an INTJ. :o Various trains of thought have been ticking away in the back of my head for several months now, eventually leading to a slow realisation that I was failing to understand my thought patterns because I was approaching my analysis of said thought patterns...

    Research shows the universe is NOT a fractal

    We can say this because we've mapped about 200,000 galaxies in a 3-billion year chunk of the universe. In other words this is not a "theory" this is a direct observation. http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/08/120821094032.htm

    Can music help you produce more Serotonin

    I'm afraid I have no link to this, but I have read that the inherent repetition in pop music, or the repetition of listening to more complex music repeatedly, means that when we listen to such music our brains are constantly pre-empting what will come next, each time our brain correctly predicts...

    To be confident or not to be confident

    At the risk of a Wildeian phrase not quite coming across as I meant it to: You "should" be confident, but you shouldn't "be" confident. Lots of people decide to become more confident, but conscious attempts at confidence always result in either lying to themselves and behaving just as...

    DEVIN TOWNSEND

    Out-of-sequence interjection time. Layers are definitely one of the key points of his work. He is also very good at combining many different techniques in particular ways which other artists do achieve, but never with as much regularity. For example, chorus, falsetto, disharmonies, off-beat...

    DEVIN TOWNSEND

    The entire Discography of SYL could essentially be described as a parody of metal, but I don't see Deconstruction as a parody. His own explanation of Deconstruction was that he wanted to show people that he has developed as a person; he can no longer do metal because he doesn't have the...

    How Autism Is Changing The World

    But the autistic and aspergers spectrum people have always been the ones changing the world. The only difference now is that we've started labelling these people, and we seem to be fixated on "curing" them rather than helping them do what they do best.

    DEVIN TOWNSEND

    He may not be "on a different level", but he is definitely one of a kind. Unless of course, you can point me towards a few similar artists; last.fm has let me down so far. Devins moved away from metal himself. I can't really class it as anything now, other than prog, the sheer scope of his...

    Olympics disinterest

    Dis-regarding everything else that has been said for just a moment, the single biggest problem with the olympics is the corporatism. McDonalds the food of athletes? Nuff said. I sort of disagree with the nationalism argument. This sort of thing will always happen, humanity will always possess a...

    What are you all reading?

    Currently on the Sisterhood of Dune. The writing style isn't quite up to the standard of Frank Herbert, but the content is still interesting enough to be worth reading.

He said he believes that it is very good that they...

    How many of you use conditioner?

    I just condition my beard (just kidding). Most conditioners are based on silicone oils rather than natural oils, and whilst silicone is wonderful stuff, it's not really what your hair needs. It makes your hair look nice and shiny but doesn't keep it in good condition; most cosmetics...

    Smoking Cigs vs. Ramen Noodles -- which one kills you faster?

    The hunter-gatherer diet has appealed to me for a long time, but at the moment I'm just making small steps towards it. It makes perfect sense, not because it has been determined that it is what we "need" to survive, but because it is what our ancestors ate for millions of years, we evolved on...

    I have a peculiar habit that 9 times out of ten I wake up about 5 minutes before my alarm. If I change my alarm it takes me a day or two to adjust. Or sometimes if I have an important reason to be awake earlier than usual I still wake up before my alarm anyway. However when I'm on holidays and...

    [:] Sounds from space, again? [:]

    The "sound" isn't "interference". It is the complex electromagnetic output of the sun which has been converted into a signal which can be heard by humans. But I'm not quite sure what you're referring to about the CGI?

    [:] Sounds from space, again? [:]

    I wouldn't read too much into it. Bear in mind that we have had these sorts of technologies -both the equipment picking up the "sounds" and the ability to listen to it in our houses- for a tiny span of time. Last time the sun was at this stage in the cycle we couldn't listen to it like this, we...
