Re: Trump presidency

I've recently starting seeing comments along the lines of 'Trump broke the law in office'. To my fairly limited comedy-news derived knowledge he hasn't done a whole lot of anything at all.

Did I miss something somewhere, or is this just people parroting stuff?

Re: 1805: "Unpublished Discoveries"

So, have you tried just taking screenshots of it, then putting those into an online image-to-pdf converter?

Re: 1002: "Game AIs"

Yo, I worked on a starcraft AI for a university project last year. Our tournament website: http://www.cs.mun.ca/~dchurchill/starcraftaicomp/ - The current implementation used in tournaments only allows the AI information that a truly perceptive player with perfect memory can aquire.

Re: 1736: "Manhattan Project"

Really, actually curing cancer likely requires understanding and control of genetics and nanotechnology on a level so advanced that I'm not sure I've ever read a scifi story that has had it available to the general public.

Its probably about as easy to solve telomere degradation and cure aging.

Re: My write-up of the "Blue Eyes" solution (SPOILER A

You're missing the depth of the "know" chain, though. Sure, I know that Erica sees at least 98 blue-eyed people, and maybe it happens that David also knows that Erica sees at least 98 blue-eyed people, but I don't know that . What I know is that Bob knows that Carol knows that David knows...
