    It’s the end of the world as we knew it

    I'm super bored with the whole of 21st century because it's still stuck on the post-modern Nietzschean "god is dead" and "inherent value doesn't exist" and still thinking there's nothing to do but hedonism or cynicism. There are obviously answers to Nietzsche, post-modernisms and structures and...

    DUNGEON SYNTH

    Rook, I think google lumps us as the same person :D I'd be curious to see your youtube recommendations, they've got to be very similar. First I get Alex Jones in my recommended and then dungeon synth. Those algorithms are spooky :cat: I've been listening to this one recently: Not exactly...

    How to make a hit flick?

    Honestly Batman is a boring universe and has a boring mc and despite the impossible - this movie was probably the best in the whole franchise. They used a younger actor, gave him less lines, made a few badass scenes, cyberpunk-gothic aesthetic and voila you can turn a shitty superhero comic...

    The best metal out there - post yours

    They're super fun to listen to. I like the soundscapes they create, structure and instrumentation keep them fresh. I listened to all of their albums already and now my cousin and brothers are listening too :D That's perfectly fair, we like what we like, chakras need full penetration :) On...

    The best metal out there - post yours

    Puffs, my whole OP was a joke intended to get people riled up into talking about metal. I don't mean "metallica is not metal" seriously :) Metallica is clearly metal, albeit with an incredibly close-minded fanbase that imo rarely transfers into other less mainstream metal.

    For real or you're kidding? :D :p I never...considered that. I should give it a go. I'm dumb for not trying the nightcore approach before. Thanks for helping me discover Igorrr, top tier stuff :) Edit: Okay, tried that :D Meshugah jumps 2 points on 2x speed, but they are devoid of melody so...

    That's enlightening. I'm triggered by most vocals so I prefer complete instrumental music unless the vocals mesh well enough to not annoy me or in the rare cases add something greatly enjoyable to the "song". For me requirement #1 is solid, powerful and interesting instrumentals. Again...

    Future Speculation

    Okay, but efficiency plateau isn't some predictor of a doomed future. Low net productivity would be bad, reaching peak productivity won't be. If you look at the system as a whole then we could use more workers to multiply our current net product. Twice the population, twice the tech innovation...

    For starters, if you like metallica GET OUT :D. Metallica is not metal, it's cheap whiny crap for the masses. I suffer a stroke every time a person says that they like metallica, really, out of all the great music that's out there they listen to 70-year old drunks who can't play their...

    Glad it worked :). The fight is not over though, they can revert into TV zombies at any point. You should think about replacing their TV routine with something else, preferably an activity that helps their brains.

    100 Prisoner Riddle

    We have 100 boxes and 100 numbered cards between 1 and 100. 1. Choose the starting box at random, so choose between 1 and 100 or roll d100. Suppose your random number was 42. 2. Go to 42 and choose a number between 0 and 100 (roll d101). If you rolled 0 then you put 0 numbered cards in the box...

    I knew the solution. To me it looks like a data structure problem with a singly linked list. Each box has a known address and holds the value of the next address, the pointer to another box, but the pointers were randomly scrambled. This wasn't illustrated well in the veritasium video. One...

    Is Transexuality a Neurosis?

    If you're going to reject masculine domination of culture then you have to reject all religion, including hinduism. Women had no input into writing what was included in the sacred texts. Kali - a violent goddess, was certainly conceived by a male storyteller, though it is fitting that a male...

    @Cognisant That's the point - humans are strongly typed. Only true and false work, but furries want "any text" to work. That's just overturning the norms and all kinds of despicable.

    This is one of the most mundane tracks he's got :) If you look at the tuning it's a 14 equal temperament (denoted as 14-ET or 14 EDO), so evenly spaced tones. Chromatic scale has 12, so it isn't that big of a strain on the ears. A quick rule is that depending on the tuning, the more tones in the...
