Re: Not as easy as 1 2 3

So, I've got a challenge for all you folks then. The 2 questions, 9 numbers form has been answered a dozen times, and pretty much entirely by the same recursive setup. Could you figure out the same puzzle: You get 2 questions with answers yes/no/I don't know to guess which of 9 questions the man has...

Re: Futuroomba!

Woo! Loving the new season. I think the new episodes still hold strong. Also, they're looooaded with small back references to older episodes, things and characters that have appeared before. But it's at a level where if you miss the reference you wouldn't notice. For example, Bender's cigars in the ...

Re: Utility of Language Major/Minor?

LaserGuy is definitely right: don't go to college for the purpose of learning a language. However, if you are at college to learn something else , spending some time and classes learning a language also is totally fine and great, if you really can put yourself into it. Also, do a quarter/semester ab...

Re: Reactions to your Major

Usually the response I get from other students here is "You're insane." Generally this is with an attitude of jest, but with a touch of seriousness behind it. That'd be cause I'm double majoring in Bioengineering and Neuroscience. Buuut totally worth it. And it is doable in five years, jus...

Re: INTRO THREAD THE THIRD

Why hellloooo, xkcd forums. I've read the comic for a long time, and passed by here a couple times in very subtle lurking fashion. Seems an incredibly detailed, intelligent, and interesting place. I figured I'd get around to making an account. Soooo I did. Also, I must apologize, while I have now wr...

Re: Eye transplant

Honestly, the plasticity of the brain is pretty consistently underestimated. Even systems that are 'hardwired' in still change and adapt to circumstances. I would say that, if this could be feasibly done such that the brain was getting different signals from UV light or any other new spectrum it wou...

Re: Swedish guy attempts to build fission reactor in his kit

Tidiness seems important when dealing with fission. Still, this guy is cool. Foolish, but cool. He's cool only because he still lives and is (I assume) fertile. Else he would have a Darwin to hang on his wall. He may yet, these things take time. No idea how far he managed to get, but from the looks...

Re: Calc or Stats

Both important, but it depends on what you're doing. Honestly, if you're ever going to do any hard science later, you'll presumably need both, but you'll definitely need Calculus. And even if you aren't planning on doing any advanced math or science related challenge after high school (Something tha...

Re: Of Joggers and Psychopaths

I had the same thought Eebster had. So, I suppose the reason the pendulum still holds despite that is that while the room turns, the shoelace turns, and as a result the shoe may turn, but it will still be swinging north-south, yes? And I would be willing to say that given how slow the thing is rotat...

Re: Logikion, the new Sudoku?

I've seen these before labeled as a different variety of Sudoku. There are a lot of fun twists when you start really looking around. Hehe, if we're talking about adding arbitrary virtual dimensions, why not also consider adding a physical dimension? 9 x 9 x 9 grid! Now that's a difficult puzzle. Als...

Re: Numbers and Squares

Yeeeeah, I'm pretty sure all of the answers so far are correct? I would presume that if there's a valid puzzle there's an answer properly including all four numbers, and I wouldn't expect it to be super complex given the context. Just makes the whole thing weird. Honestly, the psychology theory seem...
