then again, most math is cortextual (ie. superintentional, like chess); that's why the best computers can beat the best GMs now; whereas computers make relatively poor conversationalists (tho
cleverbot is improving), don't create resonant, beautiful music, and they haven't any sense of love either.
hmm, in my limited experience the sun sign seems more apt, but who knows. it seems in nearly every reading there are some things that seem right and some that are off <shrug>. maybe the equation is
too complex for simplified analysis; and if there are competing influences (sun sign, moon sign, ascendant, etc.) and they have different prognoses, then who is to say how it all balances? it's nice
to think that the sun's influence is exclusive, and there may be something to that (considering practically all the energy of life on earth is directly dependent on the sun); then again, women are
indeed mysterious, and it would be presumptuous of me to write off the moon just yet, or anything else in heaven for that matter.
Maybe not, but they sure do create porn. :D LOL no I'm kidding. People make that, too, although it's quite feasible for a machine to. As I'm sure you'd noticed all the Russian spambots that link
porn on this forum everyday now haha, been deleting like at least twenty of those each day. But yeah, anyone who's a good conversationalist certainly doesn't need to be good at math but, maybe chess
does help. It's easier for a human to surpass a computer at chess than it is for math in general, so I suppose there is some pattern to it.
Yeah I've seen some really daring, crazy insinuations in especially some of the asteroid profiles under astrology XD. Some of them do contradicting each other from what I've read, yes; for example,
I've read that asteroid description x will say that unless planet y is in domain z or some other ridiculous bullshit (lol), then (hypothesis) is true. So I guess they try to take into account that
sort of balance. Definitely, it would be way easier if astrology were true just because of the Sun sign, though it would make us all somewhat more predictable as well...and even if I wanted that I
get bored and can't help but be unpredictable at times XD.
Wow, no, I haven't noticed it was that bad. I used to delete a handful every once in a while; not 20 every day :( sucks.
I wouldn't mind a captcha to post.
I think being good at math helps you also be a good conversationalist, to an extent; truth can be seen equivalent to the "right answer", and equations are similar to logical processes.
Hmm, well I was thinking about something; if astrology is true, then why are certain sets of twins so different? Some astrologers could point to different influences of sun/moon to explain
differences in male-female twins; but look at Ashton Kutcher; he has a male twin who has cerebal palsy. Or look at the Bush twin girls. They're completely different personalities.
I think perhaps astrology is missing something fundamental. It holds partly true (influence from without (assuming the competing/cooperating influences could be equated accurately)). However, there
is also influence from within (and in between people and our natural environment too). And in certain cases perhaps the influence from within and from others predominates.
I exaggerated a bit it seems, as I only had to delete like 24 that day, but 6 yesterday and a few so far today, so I guess thibault's been more catchy about helping me out XD. But still, lots of
them...funny thing is, they're afraid of spamming any of these threads in Off-Topic Discussion forum we're both flooding XD, must have them scared or something. I mean, it's the one forum remotely
appropriate for Russian spambot porn, yet they just keep posting the shit only everywhere else. :D
Heh, that picture definitely looks like it got digitally modeled and used a frame buffer effect in 3-D modeling software to create the reflection...but I don't wanna jump the gun past the distance my
own ass can fly, because I haven't modeled in years lol. It looks sort of like a graph of y = |x| "the absolute value of x", which creates that angular inversion across an axis, whether it's y or z.
A CAPTCHA system would be an excellent (and maybe even open-source :OOO) alternative to losing our posts because of a link or two XD and has proven to be quite effective even on commercial sites that
get spam. Problem is I can't see shit, and I fucking hate trying to make out those letters. Why do those dumbasses do that shit anyway.
Hm...never thought about math making me a good conversationalist, but for the sake of argumentative enforcement I'm sure there are scenarios where it plays its part XD. An equation, logical process,
and line of software executed machine code are all basically the same thing yes:
equation... (c == a + b)
logical process... carry number of elements from b into a, compare to c
ADD %dest, %a, %b
BEQ %c, %dest, 0000
Different languages indeed, the same shit :D
Honestly I don't know anything about twins. I'm not addicted to reading all of the shit those nutcases write about lol, just some of it, so I'm not sure how much astrology declares about twins and
brothers and sisters. The only thing I've ever heard about twins being mentioned in astrology was that the "twins" are my symbol as a Gemini on the zodiac, like a bipolar eccentric fluctuation
between good and evil...oppositual moods I cycle between, rather than similar personalities. I don't really know much past that.
But yes, even if it was so simple that astrology ruled pertinent and, even to the precision of only the Sun sign and no other factors, being a 1:12 variable ratio for the incalculability of
personality types given the x person, nothing affects who somebody is more than their emotional experiences and how they deal with failure and success, things like that. I do believe that ego traits
would be maintained almost no matter what though. Taurus is said to be the most immovable sign, to directions in which he does not want to go, while Gemini is said to be the most childish and
irresponsible XD. If this is just an ego description then...why is that that sometimes I take more responsibility than many others? It can happen to anyone, different implications.
Dude!!!! LMAO, you're not going to believe this shit
I just got done clicking the Delete feature like, over 200 times in the past 6 minutes.
There was no spam...
I play a couple 1+0 games with someone here,
instantly go back to the forum...like the past two pages of threads for 3 of the forums are all flooded with Russian porn spam threads XD
First time I've ever seen that happen...
you can always do audio captcha option if you don't want to do visual one.
why do they do it? who knows. probably the same idiots we caught cheating; ie. spite. half the spam posts i deleted weren't even advertising anything (just random bullshit).
The thing I like about audio is that I can't see shit, even though it's really just that I'm immensely nearsighted, but then people will argue there are deaf people who can't hear audio or whatever.
Sure would work better than those stupid fill-in-the-puzzle-pieces click, drag-and-drop captchas you'll rarely find (cause it'll bitch over exact coordinates and whatnot).
If it's automated? The ol' question of why is sure an ongoing struggle lol...it's funny that they assume that sites that kindly allow for non-registered posting, like this one, even exist for them to
spam to begin with. :D
But yeah...I get what you mean, seems a bunch of sore losers here keep getting reset...not much to do to help with that I'm afraid, they just get pissed off and close their accounts. I mean I'm
partly Russian too lol but I get pissed in very different ways than that. And I don't take it out by posting porn links XD
Figured I'd make sure you knew though...
thibault responded to the whole issue of hundreds of bot posts overnight. His solution he says, guests can't post links using http:// ... or something like that. Sorry about that, guess you can
always just begin music links with www. or the like.
it's not an either or; some captcha systems have options for both. then again, if you can't see, how would you be able to see the click on the audio option in the first place?
that's a decent solution if the spam is automated to display http first; it's cool with me - links still function with www, and even if not you could fill in the preliminary part if you had to.
Well then again, if you can't see, playing Internet chess works pretty differently as well...but yeah, a lot of those systems use a combination of audio and video.
Duuude, I overdid it on the oreo cookie milkshakes tonight. I almost vomited in front of the waitress like I did last time someone took me out to a restaurant and I ordered a bunch of shakes XD, I
barely made it home without barfing. I'm such a sweets hog lol.
Anyway yeah, all of those Russian porn bot posts were linking the same shit, with different URLs to the same shit, but they all began with http:// so yeah. Yeah though as long as you can still manage
and you're happy with it I'm cool. I know the filter was already pretty damn frustrating to begin with lol.
