@amir Spoken like a true eldrae :)
@TetraspaceGrouping wait you mean we don't have akrotiri any more 😢
@iamnoah it means they're beige.
@alex ed(1) still works. As long as that remains the case, I will have confidence that the coming collapse is survivable for those who have prepared for it.

@TetraspaceGrouping Trill them all, god will know his own?
@pee_zombie vell, Elon's just zis guy, you know?
@pareinoia This is an outrage, up with which I will not put!
The singular is *criterion*, dammit!
Question for Henry Georgists. If someone creates their own land (reclamation, seasteading, whatever) is that exempt from the tax? Since its "unimproved value" is nil (or at least de minimis).
And is this retroactive? The Fens? The Netherlands?
(x-post from the birb site. Yeah, I'm still not set up to do that automagically. Sue me.)
@lolitsnotreal_ Now, I'm just an armchair etymologist, but I'm pretty sure the definition of "supposably" should be "in a manner which can be inserted rectally".
wait until @WomanCorn hears about "improper vulgar fractions".
@Connor natural rights in the sugar beets?
Sparse is a great way to extend the C type system; sure, it's no ML type calculus, but it gives us a lot of the things we need (e.g. __user pointers, endian annotations).
@WomanCorn Some of us still hack on kernels, where your program *is* the runtime.
As https://www.usenix.org/system/files/1311_05-08_mickens.pdf puts it,
"if you find yourself drinking a martini and writing programs in garbage-collected, object-oriented Esperanto, be aware that the only reason that the Esperanto runtime works is because there are systems people who have exchanged any hope of losing their virginity for the exciting opportunity to think about hex numbers"
@amir see this is why I was only ever rat-adj. I have (and loudly voice) *many* object-level opinions, and can't derive *any* of them directly from theoretical arguments about the Solomonoff prior & what kind of aliens control it, so I was always Insufficiently Rational to consider myself a rat. Sure I could correctly calibrate my confidence levels, and never be more than 58% sure of anything _interesting_, but where's the fun in that?
(Don't get me wrong, I love the ratsphere. But still.)
@amir "Eat my shorts." As usual, the Simpsons predicted the future 😛
@WomanCorn schools are clearly projecting. (Different kind of abuse, but still.)
@PstafarianPrice "R17 is not a fixed velocity, but it is clearly far too fast."
