I'm afraid you'll find that measurement to produce a purely imaginary result.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
You get this:
Yes, the link includes studies showing a correlation with something that could conceivably cause weird behaviour (sleep cycles), but haven't actually found a correlation with the weird behaviour.
So either there's no "lunar effect", or whatever effect there is results in a nonexistent/negligible increase in hospital/police activity.
Ask any police officer or health care provider how people act during the full moon. They will almost always tell you that they are busier and people are crazier around that time of the month - consistently - although they can't quite explain why.
Confirmation bias. I've heard the same thing from nurses, but the fact is, no correlation has been found.
Snowpiercer was based on a graphic novel, which IMHO is a medium that lends itself to suspension of disbelief. Once I accepted the ridiculous premise I actually found the movie...well, kinda bad in general, but not because of the premise
Speaking of which, that's enough
Well, clearly *that's* an exception. I'd forgotten because in that case, I'd normally a a u's (.
We just had a story about low-level improvements to the BSD kernel, and now we get an article about chip-level features and how compilers use them?
Is this some sort of pre-April-Fools
If this keeps up, this site might start soaking up some of my time instead of simply being a place I check due to old habits.
Wait - you're using a computer to create content instead of just consume it?
(I may well hold the record for longest time playing without an ascension)
I think I started Hack around '92, and finally ascended in 2009. I've been trying to ascend about once a year since then.
Don't worry, that would never happen.
G's are only ever gnomes (of differing ranks), but a g might be a gargoyle, flying gargoyle, or gremlin.
I hope that clears things up. And for god's sake, don't genocide G's if you're playing as a gnome.
But it came with a free frogurt!
That puts him in the same state as the comet, assuming all goes well.
I came close - I kept thinking "But eChocolate is a noun, not a verb!"
You asked about the timeline. I kept my response limited to the timeline
You're right - I'm a goalpost-moving jerk, and I'm sorry.
From what I can tell, Depression Quest was released on the day of Williams' death. That's not taking advantage, that's an unhappy coincidence. I'm pretty sure release dates are set more than 24 hours in advance. Quinn had to option of pushing the release, but it's such a quagmire of morality, I can't bring myself to judge whether that would have been the right decision or not.
As for the "coverup", that's another item I just haven't seen evidence of. It felt entirely organic to me - a bunch of people saw a witch hunt and shut it down. It doesn't take a conspiracy for an idea to spread between reddit, gamasutra, kotaku, fark, 4chan, and wherever the hell else - these communities have plenty of overlap. The first idea to spread was the Quinnspiracy, and the second was that it was toxic, with moderators acting accordingly Now, I haven't seen the original threads (and I think at this point it would be a good idea for everyone involved to republish any of the original material), but from what I've seen in subsequent threads, I suspect "toxic" was a valid judgement.
