How come we have a shitload of libraries, languages and tools to do most of the job for us, and basically everything lready done for us, and yet we are still stuck programming for 5 hours?

I had this idea and had to put it on paper.


Capitalism prioritizes value generation over practical utility, that's why you see lots of bloat and planned obsolescence within the tech industry

is the character from your first pic from some anime or manga? i really like it


Found this movie and I liked it enough to share it I just don't have anyone to share it with but you guys. It's quite cheesy, the actings are bad, but the dancing is p gud and the aesthetics are also pretty cool. Entertaining if you're into that 80's shit like I am.
also a very young Ice-T sings in that movie and he absolutely sucks. One more reason to see it maybe?


hey sushi i really enjoyed that clip, cool dancing indeed
you got a torrent or somthing to watch it in full? i just really hate those clipped 20 yt video movie experiences u know?

Let's talk about the books/manga/etc that you are reading.

I'm halfway through After Dark by Haruki Murakami and I'm loving it, already bought another 3 books from him to read after this one

Let's post our favourite movie of all time or a great movie you recently watched.

I'll start.

My favourite movie is Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove. The movie is amazing, very funny while maintaining the seriousness of the topic. [spoiler]The Coca-Cola part is fantastic[/spoiler].

Another movie that also really like is Persepolis (yeah, I'm reposting from the .tokyo thread). It's an animation film that tells the story of the author during and after the Islamic revolution. The art is quite unique and the main character is lovely!

I do not think this is everyone's cup of tea but this is mine. Something about this movie feels like it lasts 100 years but in a good way. I recommend watching it at 1am for the best experience.


Maybe I'm a nostalgia victim, but I enjoyed the 30th anniversary Power Rangers special. Kind of dumb and campy as you'd expect, but it was cool seeing a lot of the actors back together.


I completely get what you mean. It’s just… something about it. The way movies like this “feel” are special.

I made a cartoon, something I'd put off for months, since it was about a dream I had months prior and couldn't remember very well.
It was about gas station pizza and long hours in the studio bumbling around.

I love this!! I love artworks based on dreams. They are so inherently unique. Can't wait to see more of your stuff!


eeeek I love this GIF. Something about shoujo shuumatsu ryokou just makes me feel completely at peace.

I wonder if it'd be possible to create a visual art project on sushi? I know we've done album compilations before, but this would require compositing multiple creators' works together, etc.

Unless we stole a leaf out of the book of those old cat animation groups that would split audios into equal parts and handed them out between contributors.

Just spitballing.



Interesting work, I enjoyed it.


Good work sushi. Interesting aesthetic.


I'd love to pitch in! I mostly have experience in audio, but I can do some composting and animation.


Is anyone else fascinated with the superintelligence trope in books and movies? I've been looking for different stories with similar ideas.

Funnily enough I asked the AI the other day about movies involving characters developing themselves against the odds and it suggested me that one


good will hunting is a movie where the protagonist does indeed have to develop and change against all odds

it's just that those odds happen to be himself


A human may be thought of as an intelligent agent who observes percepts from his or her environment and produces actions based on those percepts. If the goal, then, is to maximize knowledge about the world, then actions that yield more knowledge would be preferable.

Consider the action to read a book and the action to look at a crowd of people. Surely, the density of information in the crowd of people is greater, right? However, the book contains a model of the world built from many years of observation. That book is also built upon other books and so on. Furthermore, the model in that book may be based on percepts that cannot be observed in the current time (e.g., comets, natural disasters) or with instruments available to the agent (e.g., microscope, telescope, invisible waves).

In most superintelligence scenarios, without some additional sense augmentation, reading books would probably give you the largest acceleration of knowledge acquisition. However, it's not without flaws sense the models described by the books may be erroneous or incomplete. So, it is likely that a combination of first-hand and second-hand experiences would combine to become greater than the whole.

If you consider Will, his primary goals seem to be friendship and romance with knowledge acquisition being some n-ary goal spurred by curiosity. So, he probably sates his curiosity with books rather than deduction from first-hand experiences since it frees up his actions to focus on his more pressing goals.

I've heard both good and bad things about this show, should i watch it? what is your opinion on it sushi roll?

>Deus Ex (2000)
you have good taste sushi


I watched the show and I kind of liked it at first, all the h4ck3r vibes and shit. But in hindsight it was notma lot more than an ok show. It had it's strengths and it's flaws, plenty of them.
I think the best part was the final season, where they made some of the last episodes with some care. One of them was a single long-takr for the entire episode, there was one that was completely silent and a well-structured story of it's own, and then there was one presented in three (or was it four?) acts, which unfortunately was the bullshit episode of the show.
That's one of the fatal flaws at the end of the show, where they reveal that Elliot was molested as a kid, and that just didn't fit. They never built up into it, and I ended upnpt caring. They did build up for some revelation about his relationship with his father but in the end that came up out of nowhere, as if they pulled that off at the last minute.
Also the show dragged for the entire second season, just to deliver a forced twist at it's end that's not even worth mentioning.
The finale where they beat the bad guy was actually good, as they did build up to that moment. But the next episodes were anticlimactic and they made very little sense and, again, I didn't either believe it nor did they make much sense.
Then there's the problem where they introduce characters and invest them just to then put them on hold and then just throw them away (like Tyrell Wellick, and his wyf, and also blondie), it's like they found out you can just kill characters when you don't need them anymore, and it just makes the bad guy badder, win-win eh?
So, yeah, it's okay, it's entertaining, but the writing is kind of crappy at times.


I've watched Mr. Robot five times and thinking about rewatching again for the start of 2023.


First season was interesting. Shy, depressed hacker hacks stuff. Then it kind of gets a bit over the top where it's hackers vs bad guys. Then it just gets absurdly over-the-top and Hollywood. For that reason, I can't really recommend it unless you don't mind suspending belief and don't expect serious writing (because honestly…it gets bad. Real bad).


File: 1675455700076.jpg (84.9 KB, 728x410, mr-robot-fsociety-new-york….jpg)

in some ways it's good, in other ways it sucks

basically i will echo the consensus here, first season good very grounded in real hacker shit, it's like the hacker show you always wanted a hacker collective fighting the megacorps, only as it progresses the show gets less and less grounded and feels increasingly like a comic book.

when it comes to craft the show is top notch, the cinematography the pacing, the dialogue, the acting, all excellent, it's just they lost the plot and what the show is even supposed to be __about__. It stops being about hackers and becomes some weird avante guard bullshit at some point.

what i really dislike is the forced romance with this basic ass white girl, they make her character increasingly less sympathetic ( she becomes a corporate stooge who later looses touch with reality ) they kill off all the minor characters who make the show interesting ( like literally all of them ) and then keep the most absurd characters going.

there's other issues that are indicative of the times: cliff hangerism and an increasingly unlikely series of twists but by the time you've had enough you're really too invested in the show to stop watching.

I think people should watch it because it makes you imagine what a good hacker show could have been, maybe one day we'll get that.

It is very memeable also so can mine a lot of good screenshots out of it

I sometimes draw maids for fun. Since I think this place is nice and relaxing, I wanted to set up shop and have a fun little Maid thread.

These have a real Disney-like feel to them. It would be interesting to see if you picked up animation like Richard Williams and do something with your style from there.

That's definitely a consideration, though I want to focus first on getting some more context/story in to these drawings. I think that's one of the things they're missing at the moment. While I'm not confident enough to do a comic yet, I do want to have more lively illustrations.

Looking really nice sushi roll. How did you make those, if you don't mind me asking?


Thank you sushi! They were made using paint.net polyglitch plugin, some of the lines are codeblocked on an upper layer, and others are animated with crt lines, I would do the frames and send them to flash animate, starry bg is saturated rgb noise animated. The rainbow effect is done by putting the image inside an html file and adding a css with hue-rotate function.

when I was a young child, I loved youtube. I subscribed to many channels. Most were comedy, some were news. smosh, fred, a lot of the big guys. some more esoteric people who I can't entirely remember, like this woman who sat at her desk and worked for a media company as a youtuber. eventually the company shut her channel down.

I stumbled upon one creator who I remember a great deal. her name was allofthetrash. I enjoyed her bizzare, low-res letsplays of unheard of cartridge games from the 70s and 80s. at some point I stopped watching the videos, and she eventually deleted her channel.

I still look for those videos, but have yet to find any.

as I grew older, I would find my way into internet communities. a chatroom in kingdom of loathing. the official forum for a web-based video game about forum trolls.

my favorite was the /r9k/ room in a mouse-themed multiplayer platforming game. edbye, oldliquids. lexie. funny people and a funny game.

but I always ended up getting banned or exiled from these communities. always eschewed. this pattern held strong through my teens. I don't think I was in control. It was autonomous.

I didn't go to high school. I went to community college. I had friends, and that let me think I was socially well-adjusted. But eventually I would use extreme political views would as a way of pushing them away.

Dear OP,
Sorry for turning your "innocent" thread into a hive of mathematics geeks.

I wish the mathematical conversation here had a thread of its own but I wasn't really expecting discussion to take off.

Merry Xmas.


Quoting "
You can construct a digit sequence guaranteed not to be on the list. But that digit sequence is not guaranteed to be a natural number. The digits of a natural number have some finite length beyond which you only get spaces/zeros, but the digit sequence you get can be infinitely long with infinitely many nonzero digits.

Is this really a safe rock to stand on?
We agree that ℕ is not finite. (Yes every exhibitable n must be, else it could not be exhibited.) But if there can be arbitrarily large naturals cannot there be arbitrarily long digit sequences representing them? i.e. Are you sure that a non-finite digit sequence cannot represent a Natural?

tldr: Is there a need to distinguish 'Actual' v 'Potential' infinities?


0 is representable as a finite list of digits, and for any natural number n representable by a finite list of digits, n+1 is also representable as a finite list of digits. By induction, every natural number is representable as a finite list of digits.


Thank you all. I just grocked my mistake. It was 07/10/22 (Sun) 11:53:29 No.1113 when I asked my stupid question. And only today have I understood what you were telling me.
An infinite sequence of digits WITH a decimal point gets ever closer to a real number. Without the point it could be anything at all, so not really a number.
Love to Sushi. Thanks for tolerating an idiot.


It was a valid and non-trivial question
