Re: Ok, this just sucks ass.

In the netherlands there are quite a few stories in wich, after a car crash, a bystander (or whoever) offers the victim a seat in their own car. When the emergency services arrive and the victim complains about pain in the neck or back (wich after a car crash is like what... always?) they fixate the...

Re: Ok, this just sucks ass.

Something like a guy collapsed with a heart attack and someone went to help he gave CPR etc but the man died. The family of the dead man then successfully sued the good Samaritan because he wasn't qualified to preform first aid and was complicit in the death. I'll refrain from immediatly going all ...

Re: Ok, this just sucks ass.

I'm not entirely sure, but I believe here in the netherlands it's a criminal offence to walk away from a badly injured person without helping. I'm not sure if it's the same for dead people or people that are "going to get hurt", so to speak. Then again only doctors can tell if someone's dead. If you...

Re: College and how it can ruin you

I got disillusioned with college a LONG time ago. I needed the paper and that was all I neededd from there really. And for some reason I picked a study wich was actually hard, or took alot of work rather. Cursed myself plenty of times for that.

Re: Get off your Ath let's do some Math!

That's usually where the discussion goes wrong yeah, people come up with models with why it can or can't work. If you specifically state the threadmill will counteract the engines acceleration the plane remains stationary. The weels will always have some (though little) resistance and the threadmill...

Re: The R Project for Statistical Computing

I use MATLAB for the same reason, the crazy damn lot of toolboxes.

Altough if octave uses a similar scripting language you can probably use the .m files of most toolboxes.

Re: Get off your Ath let's do some Math!

Aight let's dive in :p The airplane is powered by it's engines, not it's wheels. So it is irrelevant how fast the wheels or the belt is moving :P Aeroplanes fly because of the difference in pressure caused by air flowing over the wings at different speeds (planes are sucked into the air). So a plane...

Re: Get off your Ath let's do some Math!

I've had an argument about that before, it usually ends in a load of crap. It depends on certain math definitions you use. There's other things like this, for example: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Two_envelopes_problem And I think there was an article on the xkcd blag once: http://blag.xkcd.com/2008...
