Illustration

Good illustration of why I will never, ever, ever ride a bicycle on or near an American road. Every Rider's Nightmare 🙈 pic.twitter.com/lts9ppuuIj — Cycling Today (@CyclingTodayEn) February 18, 2019 As mentioned, I’ve had three friends die in traffic (not in cars, but as pedestrians or cyclists), all in Florida, and I don’t even know… Read More »

6K is more than OK

By | February 18, 2019

Mac Pro will be ‘easy-to-upgrade,’ debut in 2019 alongside 31.6-inch Apple 6K display. Apple might be getting back into my good graces again. A 6K display. I love it already. (Yes, I know it’d have the same ppi as the 5K due to the size.)

Trasrasure

By | February 18, 2019

Transcendence like authenticity is destroyed irrevocably, and by the same forces. There is no transcendence because we’ve already transcended, or rather we’ve exceeded the past ideas that such a thing is possible. The only transcendence now is erasure, a dissolution of selfhood, Locke’s (and originally, Aristotle’s) tabula rasa returning one to some unsullied state where… Read More »

Bad Liar

By | February 18, 2019

I originally watched this to see if it was a cover of the excellent Selena Gomez song. It was not. However, the video (though not the song) is quite good and the dancer is just enviably graceful and powerful in her expressiveness. The video is about how sometimes you give someone your all, everything you… Read More »

Monstrous

By | February 18, 2019

My Wife Was Dying, and We Didn’t Tell Our Children. The choice was unusual, but loving: We wanted them to live without the shadow of their mother’s mortality hanging over them. Total shit parents. What a bunch of monsters. Not telling your kids something like this is child abuse. If I’d been in an actual… Read More »

Informational Limits

By | February 18, 2019

In this universe, strict rationality gets you nowhere because of informational limits. Rationality is bounded by these limits are their infinite combinations, and the universe from our perspective is not; therefore intuition and probability must come into play. Probability and its actualization in statistics despite what you’ve been told is outside strict rationality and logic… Read More »

What the fuck is this shit? Is the doofus having a laugh? But wait … what if you could put your own computer “in the cloud”? Wouldn’t that be the best of both worlds? Reliable connectivity, plus a nice low monthly price for extremely fast hardware? If this sounds crazy, it shouldn’t – Mac users… Read More »

Hyper

By | February 17, 2019

This post about how much Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson can lift is misunderstanding what he was attempting to achieve with this workout. The rest of the Chest workout is fairly light-weight considering his size, so I assume he was trying to reduce his chest size for this role. Got that exactly backwards. High reps at… Read More »

This Is Just To Say

I have watched Russian Doll that is in the Netflix and which you were probably saving for a binge Forgive me it was glorious so droll and so morbid

Zero Crit

By | February 16, 2019

One of the reasons that STEM is emphasized so strongly now is because being in STEM requires for the most part zero critical thinking and little to no systems thinking (outside of the super-tiny focus area). STEM grads are no threat to anything. Funneling people into STEM neutralizes them. It’s better to have someone running… Read More »
