    Re: ODN Update / Changes

    n/p



    I'm extremely fond of Python. I have heard good things about C#, but ultimately I really just don't like working with most Microsoft products. I've coded in C++, I've coded in Matlab, a...

    Re: What is a Fair Share of taxes for the Rich?

    Why are you talking about property rights and whether something can be owned? Please fill in the dots for me.




    No, I'm arguing for a tax increase because we need it. Then there's a later...

    Re: What is a Fair Share of taxes for the Rich?

    1.) The tax rate should, at a minimum, be 50% for any dollar made over 500k. 60% at a minimum for every dollar made over 1M. I'm sorry if anyone disagrees with me, but you're wrong. No one needs...

    Re: ODN Update / Changes

    I would use python/Selenium, spoof the request to look like it's coming from Chrome and Firefox, and rate limit it to aperidic collection intervals and put further a max limit to say, <2,000 requests...
  5. Re: The More Gender Equality, the Fewer Women in STEM

    I like making money, so STEM is just fine for me. :afro:



    I mean it's difficult to say because he's often not very clear, but he seems the most emphatic about that point.



    Sure, I'd say...

    Re: ODN Update / Changes

    So... exactly how mad would you be if I wrote a webscraper that pulled all of the content off of ODN? TBH, I can pay for the extra bandwidth, if it becomes a concern.




    I mean, I don't think...
  7. Re: The More Gender Equality, the Fewer Women in STEM

    No, that wasn't lost on me.



    That's what people like to say, but having actually practiced STEM for more than a decade and met probably 50 or 100 women in STEM that I've talked to or listened...
  8. Re: The More Gender Equality, the Fewer Women in STEM

    Yeah sure, **** it.


    There's several takes on this. One of them is about women's aptitude or desire to get into STEM. I don't really care about the argument, because I think it's wrong on the...

    Re: ODN Update / Changes

    So is the plan still to take ODN down then? It makes logical sense, this forum has been effectively dead for 5 years. Would there be any way to download the website? At some level, I'd hate to...
  10. Re: WLC is Wrong: The Argument for Actual Infinities

    That's true as well, but you could do a (monotonic) sequence embedding. In other words, take a sequence that always lies in the set (0,1), and then choose an ordering 1/n (1 - 1/n) for the first...
  11. Re: WLC is Wrong: The Argument for Actual Infinities

    Yeah, that's not quite right (As Clive has gotten into in post#69, and I've discussed with Clive in post#62/63/64), but we can continue this conversation when you reply to my post#61/63 or Clive's...
  12. Re: WLC is Wrong: The Argument for Actual Infinities

    You are not engaging with the arguments that I've given you because you don't understand the even the very basics of the source material, despite your protestation to the contrary. It is absurd that...
  13. Re: WLC is Wrong: The Argument for Actual Infinities

    That's why I specified that point. I had other versions of this post that were much longer, including a sentence about this, but as it is pretty long, I decided to just give the right definition and...
  14. Re: WLC is Wrong: The Argument for Actual Infinities

    EDIT: I corrected a confusing point raised by Clive below.



    I don't care if you don't formally prove statements, but I don't believe that there's an honest way to have this conversation without...
  15. Re: WLC is Wrong: The Argument for Actual Infinities

    It's fascinating to see you try to wiggle out of openly specious claims. To wit, you said:


    Ok, but given your metric of how mass is related, the mass of the ‘infinitieth’ particle is zero,...
  16. Re: WLC is Wrong: The Argument for Actual Infinities

    No, clearly not.



    Correct. Any real life scenario cannot have the results that were thought up. It is not physically possible for that scenario to occur with those incoming velocities and...
  17. Re: WLC is Wrong: The Argument for Actual Infinities

    Okay, that's a very different question.

    1.) Firstly, to re-emphasize a point made by Clive, math is an a priori subject, this means that its truth or falsity does not depend upon facts of the...
  18. Re: WLC is Wrong: The Argument for Actual Infinities

    It doesn't sound like you're asking me to give you a precise mathematical model of an infinite number of hands creating room for another apple --although I can and will do that-- it sounds like...

    Re: Is temperature quantized like energy?

    Five years later:

    I would say it's pretty clear that temperature is not quantized. Note that the quantization of energy in quantum mechanics is for specific systems (e.g. atomic levels, or highly...
  20. Re: WLC is Wrong: The Argument for Actual Infinities

    Well, you certainly have not precisely rebutted my arguments. However, you've addressed enough that I can at least continue the conversation. With that said, this conversation does seem to be...

    Re: Difference between a Democrat and socialist

    This is a rather confused response.

    A.) These seems to stem from an equivocation of all forms of Leftism. Democrats are not Leftists, they are at most (and I do mean, "at most") Left-Centrists,...

    Re: Difference between a Democrat and socialist

    There's no shortage of differences between Democrats and democratic socialists. The difference between the ideology and actions of Bernie Sanders and the ideology and actions of Hillary Clinton are...
  23. Re: WLC is Wrong: The Argument for Actual Infinities

    Noted. As previously stated, I will not address any of your arguments or posts any further until you address what was forwarded to you in my posts (the size of particles in #5, #10; the claims...
  24. Re: WLC is Wrong: The Argument for Actual Infinities

    MT: I can deal with your previous questions, although I think that Clive has done a good job at responding to you, and I think there's largely overlap so unless when I re-read it I think that there's...
  25. Re: WLC is Wrong: The Argument for Actual Infinities

    I would love to give you more credit and blithely accept your re-envisioned argument, Squatch, except you said:


    "Your defense was: “Suppose this hypothetical universe starts out with an infinite...

  28. Re: WLC is Wrong: The Argument for Actual Infinities

    In the numerical sense. As sets, fine. As sequences (where you specify what you mean by subtraction, i.e. subtracting elements or deleting slots), fine. But as numbers, infinity isn't a number and...
  29. Re: Evaluating Evidence for the Claim that Deregulation Led to the Financial Crises

    I'll stop my respond here, because everything the OP rested on, everything the rest of your post assumes, etc, are all predicated on this point actually being true, which it isn't. No, Squatch, not...
  30. Re: WLC is Wrong: The Argument for Actual Infinities

    Okay, MT, I think I understand your intuition and where the problem lies. But I just want us to be super clear by what our words mean. So let me define a few terms here so we can be super clear by...
