Face without Sentience

July 9th, 2017 | Posted by pftq in Stories | #
An idea I've had for a while as a horror film:

Someone you know closely, seemingly all your life, one day turns around to face you and then just starts screaming in absolute fear, screaming non-stop forever at the top of their lungs, hour after hour, day after day, eyes wide and face frozen, with no change in expression, no reaction to anything, as if no longer alive, no longer conscious, no longer sentient.

Different Night Skies

That feeling of knowing we see the same night sky, the same stars and constellations, no matter how far apart we are, will one day be replaced by the feeling of realizing we might not even see the same moon.

No Evidence is Not False

April 21st, 2017 | Posted by pftq in Blabberbox | #
They might as well say there's no proof nuking someone triggers war because every use in the past resulted in world peace.

No Evidence US Strikes Send a Message to Rivals

All these "no evidence" claims that keep coming out are arguments from ignorance.  Not having evidence does not automatically mean false.  It doesn't mean true either.  It's just unknown, unproven either way.

This kind of blind reading of data without logic or interpretation is what gives quants / scientists / statisticians a bad rep.

Death is only natural... That is, until you find a cure. Then they'll kill you to have it.

Retinal Occlusion

March 31st, 2017 | Posted by pftq in Random Stuff | #
For those curious what it's like seeing with retinal occlusion... (aka RVO, RAO, CRVO, etc)

The first time your eye goes out, everything is white.  This happened for my left eye in the spring of 2012.

Cutting Through a City Grid

March 26th, 2017 | Posted by pftq in Ideas | #
Cutting thru a city grid is the same distance as going around the perimeter. There is no time saved from zigzagging through the middle if you never actually travel diagonally.

Good article on why most Blockchain startups don't really have value and are more rails for other tech like AI, etc.
