  • Commented on Oh, 2022!
    The “rent not own” model for cars is exactly the model that Uber and the other ride share platforms are betting on. They want to take it a step further then leasing, since garage and driveway space is a large...
  • Commented on Omicron
    I will ask but the university of Michigan ones on coursera look ok They will general want you to learn the basics of the language first and then move into the data science part but here is one as a...
  • Commented on Omicron
    Regarding python and data science There are fairly good (and free) online university classes for modern data science. I’d really consider taking one those, there is a ton of (well meaning ) disinformation in this thread (along with some fairly...
  • Commented on Omicron
    So todays Omicron headlines look less cheery The UK doesn’t see evidence (so far) that Omicron is any milder Hospital rates are starting to spike in London I think the best metric to track at this point is hospital occupancy...
  • Commented on Omicron
    “Intelligence” in the common parlance is not what the term is referring to There are absolutely things that we commonly refer to as “intelligence” that are outside the bounds of the “general intelligence” definition used in psychology. Everything social for...
  • Commented on Omicron
    IQ tests are generally bad tests that only vaguely manage to measure the thing they are trying to measure But they are attempting to measure a real thing That real thing is called “general intelligence” https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gfactor(psychometrics) There is a “...
  • Commented on Omicron
    Over the next few years virtually everyone is going to catch some strain of Covid. This is a thing that is going to happen that no power or technology currently on earth will prevent. However, there is strong reason to...
  • Commented on Lying to the ghost in the machine
    “ All of the IT developments that I can think of that would count as really revolutionary in the past half century have been older (and logically simple) ones where the hardware became cheap” Mostly agree, pretty much all computer...

    Yes especially once AR takes off Read a book awhile ago where a guy built a suit covered in led displays running advertising banners Since everyone walked around with augmented reality contact lenses on all the time, the ad blocking...
  • Commented on Covid on Mars
    “ As much I would wish otherwise, there is just no financial, scientific or defense justification for a large sustained human presence in space. ” The thing is a majority of what humans do isn’t rationale. So understanding there is...
  • Commented on Covid on Mars
    Musk has always been pretty upfront with why he wants to go to Mars. He thinks the human race is a lot safer and has a lot higher chance of not going extinct if it becomes multi planetary . He...
  • Commented on Covid on Mars
    “ The condition of life of Mars will force everyone to become the equivalent of a professional SCUBA diver, with respect to life support equipment -- or risk dying because someone else got sloppy.” They talk about that in the...
  • Commented on Covid on Mars
    Imagine you put the AR goggles on your head. The computer overlays your observed reality with an exactly perfect diagram of where to cut , where to sew. It process images and diagnoses on the fly . Or the automated...
  • Commented on Covid on Mars
    I think as others have said this is a big underestimation of the advances in medical technology. The idea that we could pull off a Mars colony and we are still stuck With glass vials and metal needles doesn’t fly...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    Google has banned parlour from the play store Apple has given parlour 24 hours before they do the same Reddit has banned the Donald trump subreddit Tech has gotten the big sticks out (finally)...
  • Commented on Submarine coming through!
    Trump just gave a speech that sounded like it was written by Mitch McConnel and delivered with a gun to his head. I think the republicans are coming down hard hard on him , basically “do what we say or...
  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    Greg It’s not at all gray. It’s not remotely gray. You should stfu and let people do their thing. You or your wife simply don’t have any kind of say in what restroom anyone uses ....
  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    So there is a deal, and the end is no longer nigh Has anyone parsed anything of the details? Details seem to be scant...
  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    Oh I am sorry , did t realize there was DESIGN going in, I thought you just had some problem you were trying to solve. Have at it then 😂...
  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    Buy some batteries and run the freezer off the batteries Use the generator to charge them when they get low That’s how most off grid installs I have see work...
  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    They generally go by the name “loitering munitions” are fully deployed and operational and were pretty instrumental in the recent Azerbaijani / Armenian war https://www.economist.com/europe/2020/10/10/the-azerbaijan-armenia-conflict-hints-at-the-future-of-war...
  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    You can make an argument for the supremacy of artillery from 1915-1939 You can’t really make that argument after 1939, not so much because of armor but more combined arms especially armor + air But in general it depends a...

    Water Buffalo tank plus gas powered water pump is how I do it Keep the water Buffalo full during fire season https://wastecorp.com/Water-Buffalo...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    Here is a video of tests of a compound bow at 350-400 yards. I wouldn’t call it entirely successful 😀 https://youtu.be/OTIHN16j44k...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    Here is a video of someone trying to test primitive bow long range shooting https://youtu.be/lF1TxiforHc He was having reasonable success at 80-100 yards...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    I was wrong in my units for compound bows, 800 ft not 800 meters. Though that was probably not a feat that gets repeated often. Archery competitions involving compound bows generally max out at 100 yards I actually don’t know...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    Everyone used spear throwers. Your knowledge of how to use a spear thrower is actually semi instinctual that’s how old they are But that analysis comparing them to a compound bow is utter bullshit. Kinetic energy doesn’t mean anything, these...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    Part of it is that modern bows, even traditional ones are very much more effective then primitive self bows. There is a lot of tech and knowledge in bow and arrow making especially in advanced composite bows which took a...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    I am not saying that bows were responsible for mega fauna extinction. I am saying late Stone Age advances in general were not only responsible but probably also played a role in the disappearance of Neanderthals This is more then...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    “ As I have posted before, it would have been (technically) perfectly possible to have taken a different path, and to have developed woodland and perennial management rather than clearing woodland and planting annuals and biennials. ” Thats pretty similar...
