    [–] Crowdfunded 3D Headphone Startup OSSIC is Shutting Down, 99% of Orders Go Undelivered iamaiamscat -4 points ago in Vive

    In what planet do you think that comparison makes any sense? Do you really not see how that is misleading as fuck or do you just not care and need to be sensational?

    [–] Ship crashes into harbor iamaiamscat 1 points ago in CatastrophicFailure

    I mean, that's great but don't count on it. Shit is most likely going to happen that you have no control over.

    Live your life while you're young..

    [–] Healthy sleep tips iamaiamscat 1 points ago in educationalgifs

    Go to bed at the same time every night. No exceptions.

    What if you smell smoke just after you lay down?

    Don't curl up into the fetal position

    What if you are a fetus?

    Don't use an alarm

    What if you have a rooster that won't shut the fuck up every morning?

    No screens ~1 hour before you intend to fall asleep

    What if aliens land on earth for first contact 45 minutes before your sleep time and you want to watch the live stream?

    Also make sure you don't drink within ~1 hour of going to bed

    What if you are wearing a diaper?

    Stretch before bed

    What if you have weak ligaments?

    Comfort is more important for good sleep.

    What if your bed is made of old sheep teeth because you used all the wool to make a sweater?

    You may want Patreon instead. If you have a small fanbase, and want to continue your work, people can setup monthly donations toward your product.

    [–] Trump on Texas school shooting: 'This has been going on too long in our country' iamaiamscat -4 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago) in politics

    What constitutes a "school shooting" with your 22 number?

    edit: I just found what you are looking at

    Sorry but what a silly way to classify "school shootings". We don't need to inflate the number to make the point. Infact you are doing the OPPOSITE by promoting this.. it's completely misleading. Look at the details on most of those "shootings". They include ANYTHING that happened around a campus.

    Misleading as fuck.

    What are you talking about. They are trying to take away easy access to health/mental care. Surely that will help protect students!

    Hmm, it looks like she fits in a row boat.

    [–] The power of math: 17 Equations That Changed the World iamaiamscat 2 points ago in geek

    It's a way to price optionality.

    I will sell you 1000 tons of copper in 6 months and at that time I get to choose if I deliver between 95-105% of the product. How much is that optionality worth to me? Simple black-scholes calculation can tell you that.

    It of course (like most other things in finance math) assumes normality and volatility stability, but that doesn't make it worthless, you just have to understand the assumptions.

    [–] The power of math: 17 Equations That Changed the World iamaiamscat 2 points ago in geek

    You are either completely uninformed or some undergrad/early grad student who assumes that because he has read that market prices are not perfect normal distributions and volatility can fluctuate this magically makes BS worthless.

    You would be mistaken.

    I may or may not have had too much fun griefing worlds back then with fire.. it was just too easy.

    [–] COMPOUND (randomized, rogue-lite, free-roaming shooter) now available in early access! (20 EUR) iamaiamscat 2 points ago in oculus

    The graphics work great in VR. Better than the realistic trying looking bullshit that looks like crap from far away because of resolution.

    [–] South Korea wants to build a $35 billion high-speed railway that would connect North Korea with the world. iamaiamscat 3 points ago in worldnews

    Because China started when most people didn't have cars and they have massive population density, so it makes perfect sense.

    The US has been the most industrialized in the recent history and is also very large and spread out.

    So yeah, it's not the same damn thing at all.

    [–] ELI5: How is so much energy stored in a Uranium atom so that when it is split it causes a nuclear explosion? Where is the energy exactly coming from? iamaiamscat 3 points ago in explainlikeimfive

    That's very misleading- of course the equation has to do with velocity. One of the parameters (c) is defined as meters/second.

    If you rearranged it to be

    c = sqrt(E/m)

    And if you were to determine the energy and mass, and plug in those values, you will get a velocity value (c)

    So while you may not be interested in velocity (perhaps you have the mass, and want to solve for the energy) with E=mc2 ; c is absolutely a velocity figure.

    [–] Can plants be "fat"? iamaiamscat 1 points ago in askscience

    A plant is never fat, Master Medesimo, nor is it skinny, it appears precisely as it means to.

    [–] Nice catch ! iamaiamscat 2 points ago in DadReflexes

    Eh this just looks like a cheap light one. We had wood floors with a quality one of these, he never came close to falling backwards like this. It was the best thing ever for the little guy.

    Also.. even with what you just saw, the kid is only going to do that once or twice before realizing how to balance properly.
