The rules are simple: they lie to us, we know they're lying, they know we know they're lying but they keep lying anyway, and we keep pretending to believe them. Elena Gorokhova, A Mountain of Crumbs

i448? That's barely enormous! It's merely huge! It's no bigger than a house!
Replying to @johnregehr
I’m dealing with a reduced test case for something around Swift involving an i448

Does Twitter still have a downvote button? I had it for a week and then it disappeared. I've been assuming it was because I was downvoting anyone more successful than me, but maybe it was just removed from Twitter.

We have increasingly outsourced our decision-making to machine learning models ("the algorithm"). The whole point of building recommendation, sorting, and "decision support" systems on ML is to undertake assessments at superhuman speed and scale. 1/

1 quintillion factorial, incidentally, is a number with 17,565,705,518,096,748,181 digits, if I did the math right. Put that in your TI-84 and smoke it.
And... it halted, and Knuth's conjecture is now solved with a bound of 1 quintillion factorial. All positive integers up to, but not including, 114034371 can be constructed.

Strange New Worlds may be the best Star Trek series yet, and I'm including TOS and TNG.

One more observation about Knuth's conjecture. With a bound of 10^17 all numbers up to 35950319 can be constructed, and with a bound of 10^18 all numbers up to 114034370 can be constructed. Note 114034370/35950319 ~ 3.172 ~ sqrt(10). This is not a coincidence.

They don't care about babies, it's always been about mediocre, abusive men controlling women.
CNN's Alisyn Camerota just asked a Texas state representative "why does your legislature work so quickly to protect embryos but not for living, breathing 10-year-olds?"

Lockdown drills, bulletproof backpacks, armed guards and teachers with guns, all cool. But wearing a mask to help prevent the spread of an airborne disease, that traumatizes children.
I am more certain of this than I have ever been. Stop lockdown drills in all schools, immediately. It does nothing to protect kids. All it does is traumatize them, and in the worst case, plant the idea for some of them.

Is it stupid, doesn't solve the problem, and in fact makes the problem worse? Check, check, check. So, yes.
Oh my god they’re gonna go with the one door thing, aren’t they?

As a nice Greenlandic coincidence, here's a 1980s funk band from Greenland.

Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey is a horror retelling of "the famous legend of Winnie the Poo." 💉🍯 This, of course, is not being done by Disney – Winnie entered the public domain in January of 2022.
