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.

hello.

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.

>>842 & every other chap who has seen a diagonal proof:
Can you show that the same method which shows that the Reals are not countable(listable) does not also show that the Naturals are unlistable?

 No.1114

>>1113
How so? The diagonal method "works" because "reals" are represented as [i]infinitely long[/i] sequences of digits (more precisely, as cauchy sequences), but naturals don't work that way, there's always a defined successor, which is not true for the reals.
Now I understand that the complete field axioms are categorical, but I'd like to see a proof that does not rely on a particular representation, maybe Galois has something to say on the matter?
Or maybe I could derive cauchy sequences from the axioms of a complete (ordered?) field and use a version of the diagonal method from there.

 No.1129

>>1114
The diagonal argument says nothing about numbers.
It invites you look at strings.

If you allow me to write a natural as <one or more digits followed by "infinitely" many spaces> then why can I not construct a digit sequence guaranteed no to be on the list, using the same argument which everyone accepts shows that reals are uncountable.

(also, not related, but: no Osaka no life.)

 No.1130

>>1129
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.

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 don't really have a favorite film, but one I've recently watched and really enjoyed was If Don Juan Was A Woman starring Brigitte Bardot (and featuring Jane Birkin). Apparently this was Bardot's last film before her retirement from acting, and I really, really loved her in this movie. The scene design has a touch of genius to it, with crazy house concepts and a mood that reflects the direction of the plot. The camerawork is also beautiful and sensual, and the story premise is original and daring. It reminded me of a much more recent film, The Love Witch, which seems to try to accomplish a similar sor tof story but with far, far less style. Where The Love Witch has to resort to campiness, Don Juan delivers itself with sheer sexiness and drama. It's like an intoxicating perfume designed for evening wear. I love it.

My favorite Japanese movie is "Summer Time Machine Blues". It's a lovely story and I enjoyed the humor.

For a more serious tone, I would say "The Emperors Naked Army Marche On". If you haven't seen this documentary now, you should. The characters involved are quite fascinating, the ending left me a bit sad though.

It is a truth universally acknowledged that Murakami Haruki novels seem always similar to other Murakami Haruki novels.

Why might that be, and why does no one level that accusation at Jane Austin.

I've watched a good bit of anime in the past, and a lot of what makes one appealing to me is when it's both pretty, and on the spectrum from comfy to melancholy that sushichan is sort of about. But I've never watched much other TV, except for whatever trash was on to kill time when I was younger, and it would be good to branch out more.

Does anyone have recommendations for shows that have that kind of vibe? From how people talk about movies it seems like that's more common in them, but sitting down for a whole film is a commitment while a shorter episode format is easier to just relax and watch some of.

 No.1108

Does it have to be live action? I don't watch a lot of TV that isn't anime but I quite like Over the Garden Wall, pretty cute and interesting short animated series.

Post things you've learnt recently!

From 'Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable':
Cornstalks. In Australia, especially in New South Wales, from colonial times a name for youths, perhaps from their being taller and more slender than their parents.

That made me laugh, especially because it reminded me of myself.

Heh, if there were a Latin programming language, 'adit' would be the equivalent of 'goto'.

Many people (especially those who are forced to do Latin at school) claim that it is useless because it is a 'dead language'. But you are completely right that an understanding of Latin (and/or Greek) can help decode English words with a Latinate etymology. Personally, though, I would prefer if more words were Germanic in origin to ease understanding; if you do not recognise the word 'oratory', you will probably have no clue what it means unless you study Latin. 'Speechcraft', on the other hand, makes immediate, intuitive sense.

Anyway, here's a fact for the thread: the Ancient Greeks and Romans believed that there was a nerve running from the third finger after the thumb to the heart. This explains why that finger is the 'ring finger' (digitus annularis in Latin) on which we place engagement and marriage rings.

Another bit of latin in the english language that I find interesting is not too surprising, yet somewhat enlightening if I may say so.
It's the word "essence", which from the latin word, comes to mean "that which it is", with "esse" meaning "to be".
The -ence termination is not proper of latin, but english, just like we say "importance" and such words.
Of course it makes sense, for that is the meaning of essence: that which something is at the more fundamental level. Though sometimes we interpret the word much in the sense of "substance", that is, the material of which it is composed.
Now substance does have a latin root, but to the extent of my knowledge, only in the prefix sub- which as we all know means "under". Sub-stance would thus means "that which stands beneath"

Sorry for all this, I'm just an etymology freak, and quite frankly I think it's really interesting to know what the atomic elements of the words we use are and where they originate. They also give some material to use them creatively in speech.

 No.263

>>262
Your explanation of 'essence' was interesting, and led me to consider whence comes 'quintessence'/'quintessential'. I knew that the 'quint' bit must mean five, but there's a deeper explanation than that:
>The ancient Greeks said there are four elements or forms in which matter can exist–fire, air, water, and earth; the Pythagoreans added a fifth, the fifth essence–quintessence–ether, more subtle and pure than fire, and possessed of an orbicular motion, which flew upwards at creation and formed the basis of the stars. Hence the word stands for the essential principle or the most subtle extract of a body that can be procured.

Most carnivorous mammals are grouped together in the same taxonomical order, fittingly called 'carnivora', and these fall into two main suborders: feliformia (cat-like) and caniformia (dog-like), the former being the familiar felines, including the hiena, the latter a broader set including bears, racoons, and even seals, as well as canines like wolves and dogs. They turn out to share similarities in their skullbones.
A sibling order to the carnivora are the 'ungulates', which are mammals with hooves, like the horse and the giraffe. Among these is a mammal that used to have hooves but now only has vestigial finger-like appendages in their skeleton: the cetaceans.

Waves or wave like things form any time there are two kinds of things that convert into each other. Sound waves for instance are the interplay of pressure and motion or momentum. Visible light is part of the electromagnetic spectrum which true to the name, is the interplay of electric charge and magnetic fields.

The thing I learned recently is that unlike ears, which hear a continuum along the sound spectrum, eyes only activate to 4 specific ranges of frequency. It is as we only hear 3 different pitches and have to infer the existence of the intermediate pitches by the relative volume of the pitches we hear.

And it's this fact about human eyes, rather than anything about light, that gives us the color wheel in art theory.
