Re: "Tones" Discussion

How I wish that my mobile phone had a ringing sound...
It doesn't have even a ringtone for SMS's :oops: But I hear a lame monosound version of Drunken Sailor every time someone calls me (not often, luckily)

Re: "The End is Not for a While"

I loved this one. And I feel very identified since I'm always reminding people that we are quite well in comparison on how we were centuries ago.

Re: "Hats" discussion

Wow. First time I get to feel the "get out of my head" thing. A few weeks ago I finished a painting witch features a Hat witch moustache wearing another Hat and carrying a cane. I'm thinking about doing a Rabbit pulling a Rabbit out of a hat. This comic also reminds me of this and the last...

Re: "Delivery" Discussion

I've often been confused when overhearing two people discussing some major incident (e.g. "She got him drunk, fed him roofies, then dragged him out into the woods and buried him alive ! Yeah! True! I saw it last night!") in great detail, and only afterwards realising that they're actually...

[Help] Lisp and AutoCAD

Okay, I don't know anything about Lisp but I wanted to write a short macro for AutoCAD. The idea was to make a line not from the two extreme points, but from the middle point and the extreme one. I wrote it in VBA and got this: Sub lm() ptoM = ThisDrawing.Utility.GetPoint(, "Punto medio:")...

Re: "Kilobyte" Discussion

Instead of changing cumputer meassures to fit conventional ones, we should do exactly the oposite. 1 km = 1024 m, 1 m = 1024 cm and so on.

The world would be a much better place.

Why we keep on trying to convince ourselves that we have free-will. I believe in determinism and it doesn't make me unhappy at all.

Making a language where all words where nouns would be easy.. sort of...I think. "kun" would mean "dog", "oreb" would mean "brown" or "brownness", "kers" would mean "run" (used as a noun, of course). That way "kun oreb kers&q...

English for 7 years at primary school and a couple years afterwards and German for 4 years and counting (does music count as a language?). If I had more time, I would go for Latin. I speak Spanish too, like most Argentineans. :P

I don't think it is a problem of definition. My guess is that the problem comes from a lack of an objective measurement of "value". For instance, although we can argue for hours on a clear definition of intelligence, there are ways to measure it and, further, to compare. That's just two s...
