Geopol: What use are peaceful protests?!?

A little over half the population in the (loosely defined) West currently feel unrepresented by their governments, particularly in the context of draconian and laughably ineffective (if the stated purpose is to be believed…) COVID measures, universal media shenanigans and election troubles. In a video I did a few months ago I explained how the […]

Nonsensical Surveys

At the bottom of some mystery fear porn article on MSN about it being such a puzzle that Japan is doing fine despite no mandates, no lockdowns, no shutdowns, etc. this survey appeared asking readers how they felt about about Japan’s “handling” of the situation: This is ridiculous as there is no option for “This […]

How to Destroy the Middle Class

Step 1: Impose a tax on unrealized capital gains right before hyperinflation takes off.Step 2: Sit back and enjoy the show — you’re done! The above is not an exaggeration. Don’t think only about crypto and stock holdings. Think bigger. Your car, your house, your clothes, your dog, the food in your refrigerator, and any […]

Space-Based Solar Done Right

Anyone who gives a bit of honest thought to the so-called “renewable energy” market cannot escape the conclusion that the vast majority of it is fake — politicians creating a moral panic to grant themselves unquestionable authority over appropriations and then handing appropriated funds over to losing ventures run by their friends and family that […]

Building Erlang 23.3.4.3 on Devuan/Debian/Ubuntu

Erlang R24 is out! …but there are, as usual with a version X.0 release, a few rough edges (enough of them around the important-but-annoying WX and OpenGL updates that I’ll be writing another post about that shortly…). In the meantime, R23.3.4.3 is excellent and quite reliable. The steps for building with kerl are nearly identical […]

確率事象

いくつかの無駄な考え: 天地万物はプランク限界でピクセル化されています。 エベレットとボーアの解釈はどちらも正しい: 宇宙は遅延評価され、未来は「記憶」するには費用がかかりすぎる. 相対論的効果は、イベントの評価に必要な伝播遅延と削減バジェットのために発生する創発現象です。 確率は文脈から外れて滑らかに見えますが、ピクセル化とイベント順序の依存関係により、無限に小さな確率のイベントが実際に発生することが制限されます。 実数は偽物であり、有理数は実数です。 すべての数値には有限の解像度があります。 上記の点のために、残念ながらかなり多くの数学が間違っています (たとえば、真のタンジェントは、単一の値ではなく、そのスコープによって制限される範囲です)。 しかし、偽の数学は、その大部分が真っ赤な嘘であると認めれば、工学を完成させるのに十分に妥当な近似値です。 人は、自分の幻覚に夢中になりすぎて、上記のことを注意深く考えることができません。

Tsuriai: Now engaging in smart contract work

I never thought I’d see the day, but Tsuriai (the tiny Japanese software company I work for) is now in the Ethereum smart contract market as a developer — which means I am now in that same market. Need a smart contract or blockchain/IPFS-based project developers/consultants/educators*?Just shoot the office an email at info@tsuriai.jp and they’ll […]

Valgrind “Hello, World!”: Python 3.6 VS Python 2.7 VS Erlang R23

I’ll just leave this here… Python 3.6 Python 2.7 Erlang R23 (On this one I can include the entire output.) Hey, Python! What the actual fsck is going on here?!? Jeebus… The Good Idea Fairy came along and convinced the webtarded among you to start throwing kitchen sink features in (“walrus operator” — yeah, great […]
