Re: 2028: "Complex Numbers"

Imaginary numbers are pretty theoretical until you get to calculating lag-lead times on power transmission. Then they're a huge pain in the ass.

Re: 1987: "Python Environment"

The question I have, of course, is if that's what the core install looks like, what does a diagram of the Virtual environments look like?

Re: 0878: "Model Rail"

Actually, the final statement in the comic is wrong. If you just make a scale model of an object 88x as big for each recursion you want to go down you can make an infinite number of recursions.

I would like my 'nerdy quibbling' merit badge for that, please.

Re: "The Flake Equation" Discussion

There's no 'believability' factor. There should definitely be a percentage factor in there multiplying all of it by the credibility of the original source. Drunken hillbillies don't count.

Re: "Strip Games" Discussion

Strip Jenga turns up in the first or second group, was omitted, and sounds like a whole lot of fun. Nothing to do with me being REALLY good at Jenga, of course.

Re: "Collections" Discussion

I totally dig that Randall loves Pratchett's work too. I have a paperback copy of every single book he's ever written, I think.... Some of them are from before they were available in the US. It's, well, amazing how popular he's gotten in the last few years.

Re: "Scrabble" Discussion

Historic doesn't get the bonus for using all 7 letters, and puts all your opponents in a better place than the double words on top of clitoris. Given the choice, I'd take the 7 point 'CLITORIS' horizontally under or over 'HI'.
