    [–] The LEFT Wants to Take Away Your PENIS Skylord_a52 18 points ago in PragerUrine

    please somebody for the love of god, get rid of this fucking thing

    [–] The Diamond Skylord_a52 22 points ago in killsixbilliondemons

    I don't think it's so much that he lacks toughness, but that he lacks flexibility. He sees his family as a weakness when it could just as easily be a strength. He maintains the status quo instead of being adaptable.

    So far, all of the Demiurges have reminded me a bit of Rand Al'Thor and his quest for hardness (which, if you haven't read the Wheel of Time series, drastically exacerbated his path towards insanity).

    [–] Jealous boyfriend chain reaction Skylord_a52 72 points ago in Chicken_Thoughts

    is he jealous that you're scritching his girlfriend instead of him scritching her, or that you're scritching his girlfriend instead of you scritching him?

    🤔

    [–] What "stupid" questions turned out to be great questions? Skylord_a52 55 points ago in math

    "What happens if we pretend these subscripts are actually exponents?"

    [–] Proof that the harmonic sequence does not diverge or converge Skylord_a52 7 points ago in badmathematics

    Please,a toddler should not play around with knives. I have planted a mistake in my pdf so that you could figure out.

    Sure, if you say so.

    I do not expect any of you to know,I only expect acknowledgement,and submission. The uhhh people more of my level can handle the laws which you shall follow with,your owner,leashed, for your daily evening walk.

    I think you may need to see a therapist.

    [–] The Line Integral, A Visual Introduction using manim Skylord_a52 1 points ago in 3Blue1Brown

    I think it would be particularly helpful if you had included the full 3D diagram when you were solving the scalar line integral. Also, when you were finding arc length + turning the sum into an integral you could include animations of multiple ds segments being added together and then getting smaller and smaller.

    Just stuff like that rather than pure symbolic manipulation.

    [–] King of Swords 4-43 Skylord_a52 1 points ago in killsixbilliondemons

    I honestly don't know which I'm more excited about.

    [–] The Line Integral, A Visual Introduction using manim Skylord_a52 2 points ago in 3Blue1Brown

    Nice work! I would really encourage you to be more visual though, and try to keep animations and equations on the screen at the same time. Whenever you do something with an equations (other than simplification) maybe try to include the corresponding change in the visuals.

    [–] What hobby would you like to give a try but don't because of the expense? Skylord_a52 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Stonecarving. It's something I've wanted to do for a while. I love the historical/primitivist aspect to it, and I love the idea of making something permanent that I could bury and would survive for 100s of years.

    Surprisingly, it's not actually the stones or tools that I wouldn't be able to pay for, it's a place to do it. I'd have to rent out a space and buy a table and a vice.

    [–] The other way around Skylord_a52 4 points ago in ToiletPaperUSA

    China's imperialist and capitalist tho.

    [–] I finally understand Green's functions and I feel I reached a new level of power Skylord_a52 19 points ago in Physics

    Wait

    fuck you're right

    I mean, it says they are right at the top paragraph of the Wikipedia article about them, but I only just started really getting convolution and impulse responses, so suddenly that definition makes so much sense.

    [–] "Is Gödel's encoding scheme invalid à la Quantenverschränkung (Quantum Entanglement)?" Skylord_a52 5 points ago in badmathematics

    I mean, you could just define S(x) = x + 1. And then, because it's so awfully convenient, you could in turn redefine +(x,y) as y repetitions of S on x and... hm.

    [–] What field of mathematics do you like the *least*, and why? Skylord_a52 2 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago) in math

    Okay fair enough! Sorry, I didn't realize you actually worked in the field, you would know considerably more about it than I do, in that case.

    [–] What field of mathematics do you like the *least*, and why? Skylord_a52 1 points ago in math

    I don't really know enough about it to comment, I think, but I would likely be at least more interested.

    I'll look it up!

    [–] What field of mathematics do you like the *least*, and why? Skylord_a52 2 points ago in math

    General relativity comes to mind, although I'm sure there's more.

    Edit:

    Oh, and I'm sure you could also apply it to machine learning, where the error is a surface over the thousands of parameters.

    [–] What field of mathematics do you like the *least*, and why? Skylord_a52 9 points ago in math

    I don't think you understand how machine learning works.

    Sure it's still not fully understood, and it's very overused and misused by big data companies, but it is very much not random. I wouldn't be surprised if most models were actually provably convergent.

    The real problem with machine learning is finding the right training data and preventing overfit, and I think that's where all the hacks come in.

    [–] What field of mathematics do you like the *least*, and why? Skylord_a52 1 points ago in math

    I don't yet have a full understanding of these or of functional analysis, but path-integrals and Lagrangian mechanics are both basically functional analysis, right? Or at least related to it? All about finding some optimal curve between two points.

    [–] What field of mathematics do you like the *least*, and why? Skylord_a52 7 points ago in math

    I think their issue is more that any field that depends heavily on the truth values of ZFC is probably too abstract, nitty-gritty, and seperated from real-life.

    That's how I feel about set theory, at least.
