This is probably one of the coolest things I've seen. According to one of the comments, "This amazing piece of engineering from 1958 was the most advanced desktop accounting machine ever built. It is programmable with fifty discrete program steps and has fifty-six 12-digit decimal registers arranged on seven drums with eight registers each. Programming is done with a board which fits on top of the carriage and distinctly shaped pieces of steel which represent one instruction. Four instructions can be executed in parallel and conditional branches and jumps are possible; the machine is Turning-complete. An optional coprocessor could be added to help with multiplication intensive programs. It is believed that over 300,000 of these machines were built from 1958 to 1983."

Can a physics nerd explain to me how surface area works?

 No.496

>>495
Surface area is simply, as its name entails, the area of the surface of an object. The volume, is everything underneath the surface.

 No.497

>>496
So how does a small block of Aerogel have the surface area of half a football field?

 No.498

>>497
If you imagine aerogel as being like a sponge, the individual pores inside of the sponge also add to the surface area figure. Aerogel has such a great density of pores, and they are so small that the combined surface area is quite large. To draw an analogy, if you had a piece of cheese and cut it into many very thin slices, you could undoubtedly make a very long, albeit thin, continuous piece of cheese. Similar to how the pores of air contribute to the surface area of a piece of aerogel, the over all volume of something you could imagine as having a potentially very high surface area if it was drawn thin.

Wasn't aware anything like this existed. Apparently in some places you can just use an app and then rent a car to use however you want. Unfortunately, it seems the US market isn't nearly as fortunate as in the Netherlands; while he showed only paying per minute, and a years worth of occasional trips costing less than a few hundred euros, in the US it seems the largest app is Turo, which you pay for having the car for a whole day, typically costing $40 at a minimum. Oh well.

 No.702

>>700
I really don't like the idea. Part of the advantage of a car over Public transport is that you are the only one that uses it. You don't know how many fat, balding, sweaty, farting old men have been in those cars before you. $40 a day would end up costing more as well.

 No.703

>>702
>You don't know how many fat, balding, sweaty, farting old men have been in those cars before you.
Well... He covered that in the video. For the company he talked about, the cars would regularly get cleaned and because people would rather not be fined, there's a pressure to be as clean as possible. $40 per day was just the cost of cars near by me when I checked a similar app. In the Netherlands because it's pay per minute, he showed one cross town trip that only cost a few euros. Mainly, his pitch was using a car sharing service only when necessary and then using public transit otherwise; in his case, the cost of using a car sharing service presented an advantage because there were lots of things he wouldn't have to pay for like gas, insurance, maintenance, etc.

I think it's an interesting idea.

 No.704

>>703
I still would not trust it and I still would not like to sit somewhere where the sweaty old men have been just because they say they cleaned it. That's if it even can be cleaned, you can;t clean the old man sweat the seeps into the seat itself...

It's an interesting idea if you like old man sweat and you don't need a car. Sure, if you want to travel a short distance once a year with a car ant not just ride a bike that one time for some reason then I agree it makes more sense. Gas, Insurance and Maintenance would simply be added to the cost of rent itself. I don't like public transport either.

This sort of thing must have been so ominous and terrifying to people living in the far past.

It's definitely not for everyone, but it makes a lot of sense for people who live in urban areas that don't need a car -- because public transit and walking/biking alternatives are more robust -- but may need to use a car every now and then, like going to the store to pick up a piece of furniture, or taking a family day trip, or needing a car for traveling in a different city after taking a train/plane trip somewhere for business or vacation.

Why do I see science channels like Veritasium and what not making videos about this?

 No.717

>>716
Veritasium is more of an entertainment channel than a science one and a lot of his content is made up of ads for companies. This guy made a video about that. I don't know that I like this guy, he comes across as a bit arrogant but he does make some good points and if you can't be bothered watching it Veritasum does try to defend himself in an exchange with this person in the comment section which is equally as enlightening on Veritasium's credibility(it's a pinned comment, not hard to find).

 No.721

Yeah, professional youtubers do what pays the bills. Older people here in the US will remember that things like the Discovery, History, and Learning channels were actually about those things back in the day, but they changed their programming for better profitability with the growing popularity of the internet.
Just like with TV, on youtube the best stuff is independent (or publicly funded) so it isn't beholden to shareholders. Hell, even the same groups are involved like BBC (UK) and PBS (SA).
People post PBS Spacetime now and then and that's a good example, I think it uses a combination of government grants and personal donations.

He's just jumping up and down and moving side to side. All the enemy attacks are too slow to do anything.

That's very interesting, but consider the following:

 No.824

>>822
That's very similar, only this time he does not have to jump or move side to side so much, he can just run straight ahead, also the enemies are mostly further away which makes their slow moving projectiles even harder to hit, I think you would have to actually intentionally stand still and let yourself get hit for them to hit.

 No.825

>>818
They're not too slow, and they're coming from all directions. But more he makes it look easier than it is by having good awareness, just randomly jumping about would eventually land you in front of an attack, if the HUD were there you'd be able to see more of how chaotic that run is. Also he's making precise shots to parts of the enemies extremely fast to disable some of their more dangerous weapons, all while managing ammo, health, armor, and swapping between weapons to deal ideal damage to each individual enemy before it becomes too much. This is all to say, it's a whole lot harder than it looks.

 No.826

>>825
They are slow... I could throw a tennis ball faster than that. Do you know how fast bullets are? I don't but probably at least twice as fast. It is just random, because they aim at him and they are so slow, all he has to do is just not be where he was a minute ago and they miss.

 No.828

>>827
He's doing exactly what I said... Only he seems to get hit a lot by enemies that he is not looking at too, he probably should move in a more circular pattern so the enemies at the side miss when they shoot at him as well as those in front.

I can't believe you would compare this kids game to Touhou... Touhou is real, it's visceral, it's deadly. Fairies don't mess around, they attack in formations and saturate the area so you can't just side step from the one spot where you were before, they are trained killers, they work as a team, they are not playing around and that's just the fairies, the bosses saturate the whole screen in precisely executed attack patterns meticulously designed solely for the purpose of killing the player, they don't just account for side stepping they account for forwards, backwards and diagonal movement as well, they are bloodthirsty cannibals that think of you only as their next meal. And you can't just get shot 10 times and then be back to full health 10 seconds later because you get a health pack, this is real life you die if you get shot and you can only come back to life 3 times.

I've found some good second monitor fodder that eats up a lot of time!
GDQ, the speedrunning event isn't nearly as good as it was back in the day, but the channel at least added some novel "shows" that happen between the events and I think some of them are pretty good. "Super Boss Brothers" has two people compete in old game mini-events (like "gather the most coins in SM3 in 10 minutes") and the commentors are Big Jon (my favorite speedrunner) and TheBlacktastic and they're really entertaining.

brilliant pebbles was an amazing and rare success of the star wars program and had it been deployed would have been a really formidable missile shield

one worrisome capability the US has with the new generation of large, reusable spacecraft is the ability to quietly manufacture an entire skys worth of brilliant pebbles. and then quickly dump them all into LEO at all at once without warning. which would be a huge pain in the ass for anyone who relies on ICBMs for nuclear security.
you can see from starlink how quickly huge constellations can be placed into orbit.

 No.1251

>>1247
From what I've heard, I would imagine these are not nearly as much of a concern as they would have been at their inception due to the recent development of hypersonic missile systems which would largely travel through the upper atmosphere rather than low earth orbit, which also makes them considerably more difficult to identify in time for an adequate response. On the one hand, I would say, "hopefully some counter can be found for them," but on the other hand a technological arms race for nuclear weapons isn't exactly something to champion either...

They have a historical drama series every year called a Taiga drama, I have seen two of them.

Like this one is "What if we nuke Jupiter" which is ludicrously dumb, but I learned it'd take the missiles 550-650 days for them to travel if we launched them from Earth and that groups of asteroids in the asteroid belt are called "families", among other stuff. It uses a lot of movie footage as filler, but it works.
Not bad

Don't really want to make a thread for it and it's live instead of youtube, but the European Speedrunner Assembly is going on. It's like GDQ, but closer to the old versions instead of the modern sanitized version. (I think it's heading that direction though)

She's actually too optimistic. She thinks particle physicists could be doing something better whereas the most likely issue is there being not much left to discover within the energy scales humans can feasibly reach. In particle physics this pessimistic scenario is called the "desert."

Honestly, I find vowels vexing. Much harder to articulate than consonants.

Nice. I honestly don't think these videos do a very good at showcasing this stuff, they feel a bit stiff and hard to appreciate, but I'm happy that it exists.
A neat thing to note is the number of phonemes. People commonly say Japanese pronunciation is easy due to the small amount of sounds it has (usually because they ignore allophones) but Rioplatense Spanish actually has even fewer, with less restrictive but still fairly simple phonotactics (unless you treat devoicing as a source of heavy syllables, then they're more or less on par with each other).

For reference, comparison between phoneme charts. Allophone count for Jap refers exclusively to the ones that can occur in a vacuum, except for /N/'s [ŋ]. I think the gap may widen if you were to add all possible allophones, English would at least double in size. This is without counting vowels.

He makes an offhand comment that the 11 exit path is the most direct path to Bowser's castle, reached by beating every secret exit in the levels that have them. Never realised that the shortest path has that property, it's really elegant and feels like something the designers put there on purpose.

The ABC stuffs are really good, covering the whole history and mechanics extensively. Sadly it's already outdated...
His videos aren't really sleepers for general retro game audiences in my opinion, unlike RGMechEx.

You or may not be aware of a guy called TheMexicanRunner (or TMR) that did a big event nearly a decade ago where he beat every US licensed NES game. What I didn't know is that it's all on youtube and in a handy playlist. He's not particularly charismatic or anything, but it's crazy to see him keep at it on games that are ludicrously difficult that people used cheat codes to beat back in the day.
For instance it took him 40 hours to beat Ikari Warriors and it's all there, with him practicing with save states and pulling out maps and so on. It's a reminder that something that may sound fun at first is really a nightmare.

He used to speedrun Battletoads and other NES games before, people who speedrun usually do it for the challenge or because something could be possible, even if it sounds insane. I know him because his name used to pop up in the speedrunning community which I used to follow back then

More modern YTP stuff along the lines of >>2886. This one's a bit more traditional, but it's a similar style of humor.

I'm glad to see the format survive beyond people like me that grew up with it. This isn't someone making a high-effort YTP in the grand tradition of poops; it's someone throwing together a stupid shitpost for fun, and in my mind, that's the truest form of YTP.

I was more into the musical kind of poops, and I even made a few (horribly out of tune) ones myself.
