    [–] How wet are Irish months? cavedave 3 points ago in ireland

    Seems not that different. But most months have two humps which implies to me there is a wet and a dry version of each month.

    Met.ie have average for each month and the winter is higher https://www.met.ie/climate/available-data/monthly-data

    [–] How wet are Irish months? cavedave 2 points ago in ireland

    Data from https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/research/climate/maps-and-data/historic-station-data theres loads of UK stations there. If anyone has any Irish weather station data going back a long time let me know? My Python code to make this graph is at https://gist.github.com/cavedave/a9d7be3ac90b101e706d363fd9983abd#file-raincloud-py

    [–] What subreddits have casual conversations that could be used to train an ai. cavedave 2 points ago in datasets

    I feel my entirely expected amount of hate to break it to you means you dont actually feel any extra hate to break it to me just feel entirely normal about breaking it.

    [–] What subreddits have casual conversations that could be used to train an ai. cavedave 6 points ago in datasets

    There is an issue with using soap operas, reddit and podcasts for modelling conversation. Real conversations go nowhere. In these locations conversations are trying to achieve something.
    Here I am trying to persuade you that this comment contains information in a way that us having a chat over tea doesn't.
    For one thing I dont change the conversation by talking about something different. Except I did in the last sentence.
    Another is that real conversations rarely reference back earlier. Arguments do but in a standard chat saying

    You commenting now 'You said 'I don't change the conversation by talking about something different' when you clearly did ' is entirely reasonable in a reddit thread but not in a real conversation.

    [–] 5 Facts About Guinness cavedave 6 points ago in IrishHistory

    On 5 and 6 in their internal taste tests guiness do not use a two part pour. It makes no difference to the taste of the beer if you pour in one go.

    [–] A book in The Troubles cavedave 3 points ago in IrishHistory

    Milkman by Anna Burns is the best book in the troubles I have read. I know you asked on the troubles but I will take it as a Freudian slip.

    The history of the Troubles is so weird I think fiction is some of the best ways to look at it.

    [–] No one's going to notice the missing 68 millilitres cavedave 8 points ago in ireland

    From 1984 by George Orwell

    "And what in hell's name is a pint?" said the barman, leaning forward with the tips of his fingers on the counter.

    "'Ark at 'im! Calls 'isself a barman and don't know what a pint is! Why, a pint's the 'alf of a quart, and there's four quarts to the gallon. 'Ave to teach you the A, B, C next."

    "Never heard of 'em,' said the barman shortly. 'Litre and half litres - that's all we serve. There's the glasses on the shelf in front of you."

    "I likes a pint," persisted the old man. "You could 'a drawed me off a pint easy enough. We didn't 'ave these bleeding litres when I was a young man."

    "When you were a young man we were all living in the tree-tops," said the barman, with a glance at the other customers.

    [–] Photos of River Poddle underneath the city of Dublin's streets cavedave 13 points ago in IrishHistory

    Carl Whitney in his book hidden city goes into it. He gets help and permission from Dublin city council to do it if I remember right.

    I remember stories of some cavers going into the system from some man hole in Dublin castle. But this is really dangerous if you don't know where you are going and what you are doing.

    So your argument that grey is black is "A monochromatic object or image reflects colors in shades of limited colors or hues. Images using only shades of grey (with or without black or white) are called grayscale or black-and-white. " but you wont make that argument and you did not originally even try make that argument?

    At the moment, to a large extent, they can't. Try "In their house, everything comes in pairs. There’s his car and her car, his towels and her towels, and his library and hers." as reported in

    >Choosing everything in gray except one part of the data in green is very suggestive.

    Everything isn't in grey except one part. Some is black.

    You must be really cliched at parties

    You still havent said what mh? means

    What does Mh mean? https://www.urbandictionary.com/ does not have anything

    If you are asking what my comment means. I am pointing out that you have no submissions to the subreddit though you will criticise others with no actual practical advise. Like a back seat driver. And include a stupid emoji in that in a useless way.

    Great on the visualisation. Let me know when you are ready? Early in the Day US seems to be the best time as people then get to see it.

    For sharing. Simplest is Google docs and set it to share with anyone. In terms of future career a github might be best. It will allow people to give you new data easily. And you can put in a citation so if it becomes a paper you get a reference you can put on your CV. If you have not done this I can help you.

    I'd sort out getting the data public before putting the visualisation up. I got a paper out a /r/dataisbeautiful post and some of that was everything being open source.
