Have you watched anything neat on youtube or similar sites lately? Don't just link it, mention why you like it!
This is a re-enactment of the American Psycho dubs man scene with Weird Al and Huey Lewis. There's some very nice attention to detail and the humor is great. Somehow it's 7 years old and I never saw it.

I like to check people's profiles on YouTube every so often, one time I looked at some wrasslefag and found this very odd playlist dedicated to hearts beating: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLBcEY3rgM2iHnoLhp5jRzm0yxRkqQ-QiL

I've posted this channel before, but it gets a new video every week and I still love it. It's all about microbes and bacteria and other very tiny forms of life. The video is really good and it's almost soothing to watch even if you were to mute the sound.

Been listening to the philosophical, theological, and socio-political ramblings of a guy that likes to grill for a while. He's been making quite a bit of sense when it comes to certain topics and has brought forth some ideas that I had never considered. Albeit, no matter how right I find his points, it's somewhat a shame how fringe they are. Definitely interesting to listen to, but I think he's kinda way too beyond the pail for /qa/, especially given the frequent and overt political rhetoric.

Videos like these are really surreal. It's absolutely fascinating being able to essentially look back in time. Honestly, though, stuff like this makes me wonder how various societies would have turned out had they simply modernized instead of also westernizing.

>>1435
Looking at the change that happened as westernization is false. It is so much so that your own sentence proves it.
Nations change as time goes on, affected by others or not. For example, if you look at the streets of new york in late meiji, you can see that they look so far from what we have today that it would be believable to the ignorant that it is from a different country altogether.
There is a very good reason why I mentioned that this is late meiji. Even though you consider this to be the epitome of japanese culture, to the people who lived in this time period, japan at that time just finished going from japanese to completely western, the japan that you usually hear about and think of as classical is edo japan which would be completely different from this.
I think, especially considering just how much japan has kept of its roots, that what we are seeing in japan isn't westernization, but simple evolution. I can't think of any contry other than japan that kept so much of its roots without staying stuck in time like the amish, the bhutan, and dprk
Besides, I'm fine with giving up samurais for anime

 No.1439

>>1438
You misunderstand. I did not mean to idolatrize Japanese culture or history, but rather posit how different various societies would look were they to modernize without Western influence. For instance, it could hardly be claimed that the dominant, modern architectural style is not inherently Western. What then might the architecture of a modernized Aztec society look like, for instance?

Obviously history is a story of contact between groups and societies, so it's foolish to wonder what the product of one society might look like without recognizing that the instruments and knowledge necessary to create anything have always come from across the world and not just one country or culture. Nevertheless, I still wonder what such an isolated society might produce and how different they might look from our own.

 No.1440

Interesting video that breaks down the methods of which states are represented federally in the US.

 No.1441

I really like this channel. It's kinda nice to just space out and watch and listen to this guy diagnose problems with vintage electronics. Vintage electronics in general just have a lot more character to them by virtue of being analog-based, I think. Unlike with discrete electronics, analog stuff has a lot more in the way of varying behavior, whereas with discrete stuff it tends to just be a matter of "it works" or "it doesn't work."

This is blowing up on Japanese youtube right now thanks to the algorithm. I don't get it, but it seems like a dumb instagram meme from some years ago that's resurfacing.

Clearing your cookies doesn't do much. Even if you don't have an account, Google makes IP-based shadow accounts for serving ads and recommendations. If it's really bothering you, you can use the three dots to the side and then click "Not interested." That should remove that video from appearing in your recommended feed anymore. You can also do the same thing for channels you don't like too. If you're going to use that feature, I'd recommend doing so in moderation, since you can "over-train" the algorithm and start getting weird recommendations.

A neat fact I heard once is that the probability for two randomly chosen integers to be relatively prime is 6/π². While learning about why that's the case, I found this video which explains a very lovely of seeing that

1/1² + 1/2² + 1/3² + 1/4² + 1/5² + ... = π²/6.

Video showing the differences between Quebec and France.

I heard that French people make fun of Québécois due to the way they speak, and indeed, that woman has a weird intonation to her accent while the man sounds more fluid despite not being a native speaker of the language. That's probably why she made the comment about French people being arrogant too.

I can't remember if I've posted about this on kissu or not, but this is a channel dedicated to videos of trucks failing to respect the clearance of an overpass nicknamed "the can opener".

I really love old films like these. Film of Japan in particular is particularly striking. It's amazing to consider just how far they had come when only two decades prior millions were left homeless and the majority of buildings were destroyed due to firebombings. I wonder what the rebels and student activists of that era think of their actions looking back? Do they still think they were justified, or do they think their actions were quaint compared to the endless and monotone conformity of their coming future? Its hard to imagine living during a time of such transformation. In many ways, the Japan of then seems very similar to the China of now. I wonder, then, what will Chinese counter-culture look like? Student activists on the other hand, don't seem so likely...

>It's ridiculously complicated. It's a partition problem: How many ways can you add up numbers to get to 20? ... So I ran a script on Python to calculate some of this. It got to 22 by running over a weekend, and I couldn't get it to go any further.

The trick to calculating this efficiently is to instead think about the expected end-of-turn score given that you have reached some current score. Suppose your strategy is to stop at 20. If you reach a score of 20, you will stop, so your expected end-of-turn score given your current score is 20. Simiarly, if you reach a score of 21, your expected end-of-turn score given your current score is 21, and so on. If you reach a score of 19, we can calculate your expected end-of-turn score given your current score by averaging the expected outcomes of your next die roll. If you roll a 1, you get 0. If you roll a 2, we have to look up the expected end-of-turn score given a current score of 19+2=21, which we already know is 21. And so on for 3 through 6. Using this method, we can calculate the expected end-of-turn score for lower and lower current scores until we finally reach what we want, the expected end-of-turn score given a current score of zero, as you have when you start your turn.

Letting expectation(score, stopping_point) be the expected end-of-turn score given a current score of "score" using a strategy where you stop at a score of "stopping_point", we can calculate as follows:

#!/usr/bin/env python3
from fractions import Fraction
from functools import cache

@cache
def expectation(score, stopping_point):
    if score >= stopping_point:
        return score
    else:
        return Fraction(1, 6) * sum(expectation(score + roll, stopping_point) for roll in range(2, 7))

for n in range(41):
    print(n, float(expectation(0, n)), expectation(0, n))


Runs in a fraction of a second.

This trick is very useful for solving otherwise hard probability problems.

Guns and missiles are just point and shoot. Aircraft have had targeting for decades, missile launch systems are completely computerized, heck computer-operated flak batteries were even a thing back in WWII on the German side.

I remember watching a military documentary from either the 90s or early 20s on "smart guns". It's been a long while since I watched it, but I think the gist was that the aiming sight was computerized and would give aiming information to the operator, and then the bullets themselves would somehow course correct mid-flight to ensure contact with the target. Ultimately the documentary revealed that the project was canceled, likely due to cost and the end of the Cold War, but also as a pragmatic decision; if you're only going to be fighting farmers with AKs, it scarcely makes sense to invest in a new weapon when the current one works fine. If the new Cold War with China heats up, though, I wouldn't be surprised if that project gets taken off ice and we start seeing crazy auto-targeting rifles in actual combat usage.
