Re: holy cannoli

I think I'm done here. If definitional questions in regard to basic words are "abstruse" and too difficult to deal with coherently, then there just aren't any useful tools here. Have fun in the...

Re: holy cannoli

The instant an argument conflates "theory" with "hypothesis" it becomes clear that whoever is mounting the argument is either stupid or dishonest. Either way, they've conceded the point by...

Heh. Thank whatorwhomever that overpopulation and starvation have never been a problem! The unsourced assertion about CFCs is amazingly convincing. But, he wrote something that you can read on the...

Re: holy cannoli

Engineering is not science. Engineers are not scientists. Engineers make or design things. The test for the quality of an engineer's work is whether or not the things function within the...

Re: Some issues with Disquss

I've started opening a second tab to follow the conversation, if I'm also watching the video. It's easier to click "Stop" than it is to find your way back to some specific point on the timeline.

Re: LOL

Heh. That was my first draft of the damn sentence, but the "whose" bugged me and I was trying to solve it for "which" or "that."

Re: What I will miss about vBulletin...

Sorry handle, it was me who didn't immediately get the reference. I figured if I had to look it up, I might as well provide the definition for everyone else.

Good grief. Florian, you are arguing with the most obtuse (your word, and perfectly apt) person on the internet. You can score every point in the debate (as you have) and it will never change the...

In comparison to you (and everyone else), whose only perception of that is mediated by a text-only interface?

Re: An Important Note to Our Valued Commenters from Bob

Think of it as a means of getting a sense of the "room," as it were. Something which might useful in some circumstances, and a distraction in others.

Re: LOL

Team? I'll quote Leonard Cohen:



I don't take sides the way you've implied.

And what you called my "point" wasn't. I was pretty explicit in the last sentence of my post.

You seem to be saying that you don't fully understand the English language and that you're resentful of those who apparently have a better grasp of it. I don't think that's the message you really...

Re: Images On Your Eyeballs (Noam Scheiber & Megan McArdle)

Re: Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul

"There is no sane reason for anyone to possess nuclear weapons." Why should we prevent someone else from doing so?

I don't think you have a consistent position here, man.

Good luck, btw,...

Re: Means and Ends (Joshua Cohen & Glenn Loury)

That would be a good description of me. I also work as an engineer in related fields to Eliezer's topic of research (not AI and not at the level of sophistication at which he seems to operate.) I...

Re: Means and Ends (Joshua Cohen & Glenn Loury)
