The comments on this video are interesting, because they exist in some sort of manufactured reality. For the last year, maybe two, Martin has been continually self-sabotaging himself by redesigning parts that do not need redesigning, creating parts that were not given enough forethought for the ways in which they will fail, and then worst of all, going beyond the scope of the project and introducing corrosive feature creep with elements of the previous two issues intermixed.

Despite this realization finally striking Martin, the response from the comments is flooded with messages saying, "Don't give up! We support you!" and "Your issues make the project unique! Without them, you're destroying it's character."

I can't help but wonder who these people are, and what their rationale might be. Was redesigning the marble gates 3-4 times in a row really productive? Was adding the additional constraint that the machine must be silent constructive? Was redesigning the rhythm machine necessary? Did the focus -- for far too long -- on trying to make the mechanism for dropping marbles look like spindly fingers actually achieve anything?

Oh, that's really cool. Dang, and almost 191 MILLION views. You're not supposed to get that many views if you're talented and created something new!
Sadly I can't find myself interested in hearing him talk about it for 40 minutes.

You ever wonder how some stuff manages to be profitable? Like peas, for instance. It takes something like 30 of the plants to fill up one frozen bag and the bag sells for a dollar. Is it just government subsidies?
And then there's specialty stores. Maybe physical specialty stores are on their way out because of online shopping, but previously a guy could have a store where he just sells paint or pool supplies and somehow it would stay in business throughout his life.
It's just so strange to me to think somehow civilization supports this kind of thing.

yeah same with propane and propane accessories

It's probably the middle-aged fantasy of living as a farmer but actually viable since the people that do it for a living actually manage it as a job and keep track of everything. Plants don't just die and need to be re-bought as seeds. They leave some seeds behind so they can continue to sprout and grow. If you were to properly manage a large farm I think you'd probably find that it's not too hard to replace harvests as it would be to start receiving them for the first time. Also probably subsidies.

If a whole bunch of stuff in computer science basically relates back to matrices and linear algebra how come it isn't a course all students have to take an introduction to in high school? We really should be teaching kids this stuff early so they can get it in their heads easier.

In burgerstan it's sometimes taught in "precalculus" but it's usually poorly motivated. As in it's presented mainly as a tool for solving systems of linear equations, and they don't relate it to linear transformations on vector spaces. They teach rules for computing determinants but don't explain what they represent. Eigenvalues don't get mentioned.

The most I learned how to use matrices for in Precalc was for solving for triangle measurements, but it confused everyone and no one understood how it worked aside from one or two kids (the type who always know everything) in a class of around 30.

 No.778

precalc where I am was things that were literally precursors to calculus, mostly advanced trigonometry. Linear algebra is something different. Mind you, I'm a grade A tensai so I didn't do it.

kissu friends, please remember to take vitamin supplements if you stay indoors. low vitamin is really bad!! and most people are deficient because we stay indoors all the time!! it can lead to worsened anxiety, and depression, and worsened immune system and health outcomes in general.

Everything seems so messed up. The world keeps getting worse and worse. People are forced into more and more debt in order to get by. Giant companies cut costs, pass them off to consumers, and price gouge all to appease shareholders. People are forced to rent everything they have because it's not financially feasible to own anything anymore. Governments which are supposed to protect its citizens ignore it as they only seek to gain more power for themselves. The only way I see this getting fixed is an economic collapse to restart the system. But that will hurt a lot of people and take generations to recover. I like to think it's not as bad as it seems and my perception is just warped from secluding myself to imageboards most of my life, but every time I look at the real world, it just doesn't seem okay. I hope I'm wrong and everything isn't actually as messed up as I see it, but I'm not too confident in that....

I'm drunk and depressed right now and I don't know why I wrote this but I did. Thanks for reading my blog. Sorry.

this is an unpopular view but i don't really care about climate change because i do not identify with the people who will inhabit this earth in the future. they will not be "me" in any meaningful sense, so i don't really care about what happens to them. the world falling apart is their problem, good luck with that i guess
this is obviously a pathological outlook but whose fault is that? atomization of society has been in progress for a long time now, this is just an obvious consequence of it. the thought of the material world dying does makes me sad in a sense but then i hate everyone who lives in it so much that it balances out

Just break up the monopolies, liquidate the assets of the ultra wealthy, force resignations of nepotism appoints, and lock up their fortunes by setting withdraw limits.

Worked pretty well for Nippon. During the Post-war Economic Miracle a lot of economists projected that Japan would overtake the United States, much in the same way economists now think of China. The only reason they didn't was because their demographics caught up to them and the asset bubble was so far-reaching that it essentially put the country in a decades long period of economic stagnation, that combined with a currency re-evaluation that made Japanese products much more expensive than they had previously been.

>Embrace, Extend, Extinguish
Wasn't that Microsoft's motto?
I had to use a Chrome-based browser for VPNs on 4/qa/. It seems to be the only common browser that will reload from a VPN on data send instead of a page refresh, or like firefox, a full restart.
I used Pale Moon and I was basically "meh" on satisfaction, but now I'm using Waterfox and I'm just slightly above "meh". I don't feel satisfied with any modern browser. You're always sacrificing something, so you need multiple ones installed and that's really annoying on its own.

Yes, in regards to climate change which is why I am not worried about that(in regards to life) but not in terms of human foot print. A tree can't adapt to grow in the middle of a road and stay there without being removed anymore than a large cat could evolve to live in the city without being shot.

We’re talking about a different “life”. I assumed we were talking in the context of what is the meaning of “life” an “individual” has not what is the meaning of “life” as a system.
Though taking you’re idea of zooming out to the next level, life is just one of the many processes that decrease the overall entropy of the universe and its purpose is to do just that.

It's connected which is my point, even within a species. Many animals, most in many species do not reproduce yet they still fill vital roles and contribute to not just the ecosystem but to their species and even family. Partly this is simply because most animals do not live to adulthood but even so many animals operate in groups with an alpha male who is the only one who breeds such as with horses or with a family unit with a breeding mother and father such as with wolves. And of course famously we have the case of the ants.
