Battlestar Galactica (2004-2009) because they flew the fleet into the sun.

Once I saw this guy on a bridge about to jump. I said, “Don’t do it!”

He said, “Nobody loves me.”

I said, “God loves you. Do you believe in God?”

He said, “Yes.” I said, “Are you a Christian or a Jew?”

He said, “A Christian.” I said, “Me too! Protestant or Catholic?”

He said, “Protestant.” I said, “Me too! What franchise?”

He said, “Baptist.” I said, “Me too! Northern Baptist or Southern Baptist?”

He said, “Northern Baptist.” I said, “Me too! Northern Conservative
Baptist or Northern Liberal Baptist?”

He said, “Northern Conservative Baptist.” I said, “Me too! Northern
Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region or Northern Conservative
Baptist Eastern Region?”

He said, “Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region.” I said,
“Me too! Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of
1879 or Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of
1912?”

He said, “Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of
1912.” I said, “Die, heretic!” And I pushed him over.

Wait... are you saying the reason groups of people in my town, during the
early 1980's, would chase after me shouting Witch! is because I was a
known D&D player?

Huh.

The bullets only go about 5' underwater. I like watching the air-cavity
ripped through the water bounce off itself during collapse.

Too bad no one can actually understand or "do the math" (in public school.)

So, as we know, this is year 2 of the 1,000 Years Of Darkness. The fading light is waning slowly it seems.
I'm looking forward to the night.

No one has mentioned The Death Tax. That's a Socialist thing isn't it? (I really don't know.)

Guess what? That is completely made up just get people to click on the link.

Didnt get your own kingdom?

It's called propaganda. We get it in America too about other countries.

Mostly, that there are no other countries...

But, when something does slip through it's usually about how poorly
Australians can swim and surf, and stuff. And, vegimite sandwiches;
really is that all you guys eat.

I'm sleepy.


oh. and then I had to sit in the court room and stand up and introduce myself. ug.


anyways, there where eight groups of 12 people each, this day.
Groups 1-5 were released.


apparently, $60 was about a third of their monthly income.


I got picked for a domestic abuse case. The wife spent $60 on a hairdo, and the husband beat her bloody. Upon which she picked up a knife and went after him.


At least, that happened to me. I was in group #6.


I've heard the higher your group number the more likely you will be picked.

Ug. What group number are you in?

Is this a competition to see how many errors of reasoning we can spot in the title and opening post of a thread?

Your score is zero.

[ interweb proof = youtube video ]

This event would have ushered in the '1,000 Years Of Darkness' Chuck recently spoke about.
Bruce Lee died before this event could transpire.

1. Cleopatra was born nearly 2500 years after the Great Pyramid was built. So, she lived closer to the moon landing than the pyramid's construction.

However:
No one actually knows when the Great Pyramids was built,
because everyone who built it has long since died.

Let's start with #1. Did you even realize you could put out a youtube video plugging a "Get Rich" program?

Books have been optimized over 100's of years; screen-pdf's are new and awkward.

In the coming decades, natural selection will work the kinks out in product development.
So, simply buy and read books for now. (Like me.)

When Google released its web form on May 30, it received about 12,000
requests within the first 24 hours. Microsoft is thought to have received
fewer than 20 requests that day.

It appears Microsoft's biggest concern in Europe may instead be it has
been forgotten by Europeans.

I wonder how many request Paizo has received from Europeans.

In the words of the ancients, one should make his decisions within the space of seven breaths. Lord Takanobu said, “If discrimination is long, it will spoil. ” Lord Naoshige said, “When matters are done leisurely, seven out of ten will turn out badly. A warrior is a person who does things quickly.” When your mind is going hither and thither, discrimination will never be brought to a conclusion. With an intense, fresh and undelaying spirit, one will make his judgments within the space of seven breaths. It is a matter of being determined and having the spirit to break right through to the other side.

I kind of must admit that seeing people in their 40's getting shifted over job placements and such.... I'm kind of feeling the Logan's run vibe right now... (-_-)

40? They made it 10 more years than in Logan's Run World.

Wait... why are they getting shifted over? Are they fat?

No cock-puppet, aliases. A very important distinction.

Anyways... why is there confusion.

After a period of observation, I have changed my inclination -- I now

We will be a Type I Civilization!

Are numbers sexy?

It's probably culturally determined. In America, small is not better.

#19 is a poorly written question, technically every answer is correct. It exceptionally vague AND includes the word "may".

I'm barely keeping a roof over my own head. It may be selfish of me, but I honestly don't care about them right now because I have my own important problems in that area. I haven't even purchased any new Pathfinder stuff in months.

I probably am not alone in this, either.

It's natural selection at work. Don't worry, you'll be dead a lot longer than you're alive; so it really doesn't matter.

Chiming in here. The Numberphile proof is incorrect. They base an entire proof on a false premise (they start out by assuming that the sum of all natural numbers converges to a finite number, and then derive that the number is -1/12. However, F -> T is every bit as correct as F -> F, which is why their "proof" does not prove that the sum of all natural numbers i -1/12). Their proof serves no function in mathematics. I also find it hard to believe that they are unaware of such a simple logical mistake. Hence, I must agree with Meatrace. The Numberphile video is certainly deceptive. The "damage control" of having to explain this to, hmm, every single person I know outside of the university (and several IN the university) took weeks.

EDIT: and I want to stress the point that I'm not saying they came up with some nonsense and posted it on the internet. I am fully aware that under different definitions of summation, numbers and "+" symbols you can arrive at different values for the "sum" of all "natural numbers". What the numberphile video did, though, was attempt to pass off that result as if you could derive it using the most common and basic definitions of a series sum. That's simply incorrect, and they gave a proof of so obviously lousy mathematical capacity that anyone with any knowledge on the subject matter would be able to call it out instantly. Thus, those UNABLE to call it out are the more general public. Thus, a deception.

Bolded part. A number of mathematicians disagree with you. It's a "layman's terms" explanation of something that is very important. Here's some links involving some fairly detailed math that helps describe how important it is.

Riemann zeta function and prime numbers.

Another paper talking about the Riemann zeta function and prime numbers.

A lecture...

Look at those Posts Fly Across the Field folks !!

That's the thing, the math they did works. It has useful, real world applications. It makes predictions that are then measured and found in nature.

For you to claim they are in error, you will need to show that Einstein was wrong.

When you get off the sidelines and move onto the field, yes, the goal posts do appear to shift. In reality though, they've been in the same spot the whole time.

Just because I said something about the topic that YOU didn't realize before, does not mean I've moved the goal posts.

Feel free to hold yourself to the same standard I've seen you demand of others recently.

Ah yup.. Keep on driving that Post-Stamping tractor.

Some of my explanatory guessing?

2. Maybe it's a Sphinx. Maybe a Sphinx is posting and it's really some kind
of giant riddle?

3. It's not Art.

This movie is about as dumb as it gets, and essentially one long Mt. Dew commercial.

I don't think you know what "propaganda" means.

But I totally saw it on the Scientific American website, so it must be true!

I'm putting this "1 + 2 + 3 + ... = -1/12" in the same category as Global Warming.
