Do you have any plans for today sushis?
Or if you're reading this later: Did you have a good day?

I'm pretty excited for today. Going to finish work on a project and add some new plants to my greenhouse while I still can.

Got coffee this morning and when I opened the driver side door of my car to get it it must've touched the car next to me (which was parked too close to the edge of the spot anyway). The couple inside started giving me dirty looks and got out to check and rub the side of their car to see if I had caused damage (I definitely didn't). I checked myself, didn't see a mark, mouthed "sorry" through the window then drove off. Now I'm going to obsess about this for three days and be worried they'll come for revenge or some outlandish shit.

I like words, I especially like knowing their etymologies and how seemingly unrelated words are connected near their root.
Not English but I recently discovered there are two words for 'pistacchhio' in spanish: pistache and alfóncigo. The latter comes from hispanic arabic 'alfustaq' which in turn comes from classical arabic 'fustuq' from middle persian 'pistaq' ultimately from greek πιστακιον. Two very different words with the same origin, and meaning!

Very interesting indeed!

Linked your post in my neocities profile. You got the attention of all my 37 followers.

As for words, I try to learn a couple on occasion (english words, I mean. Japanese, I'm always grinding) and then make an effort to use them the following weeks, but eventually they fade away from my memory.

Not that great. I don't know where to go anymore, on the Internet only Sushichan is left. A little variety would be great, but all sites I know don't exist anymore, are dead or turned to shit. I remember seeing a thread about other websites on Sushi, but I can't find it anymore. Maybe it has fallen off the board?

Hey that is beautiful. Learning about stories of words gives a new perspective. We call pistachio "fıstık" in Turkish. Which probably comes from Arabic. But it looks like the word ultimately comes from Persian, not Greek.

Haaaa…. I feel the same, but I think it has something to do with my attention and an addiction like pattern of behavior with 4chan (reddit/facebook/twitter/etc I think are the same)… It's not that there less places out there on the net, its that the good places require calm stable focus and don't have weird dopamine skinner box hacks working on your brain, so when you're in a certain state of mind, you can't really find or focus on the good parts of the net.
But about the thread, you weren't thinking of one of these were you?:

There are indeed quite a few good places left and they surely have to offer something, if you get invested in them. They all feel samey though, because they mostly offer the same. Sure, the community makes the place, but the boards, threads and discussions are more or less the same. So, what does it matter if I talk about topic y here or there? If you have a place with a community you like, then you are set. I guess I wasn't precise enough when I wrote the previous post, well I was frustrated back then. The more accurate statement would rather be that the uniqueness is lost, the Internet lacks variety and creativity.
I know your issue with the faster and bigger sites, I had that too. You get stuff way faster and you get way more too. You are basically being entertained around the clock. Stuff like being quoted, upvoted, shared, suggestions, discovering something new and whatever only gives you more and more dopamine kicks. Due to the low quality on the big websites I retreated to smaller ones though, this was already 6 years ago and I don't miss it at all.
Unfortunately, none of the threads you linked are the one I meant, but thank you for your effort.

>the Internet lacks variety and creativity
like, I get what you're saying… but at the same time, when I think about it, I'm sure it must be objectively false. There are more people on the net then ever and the old sites and tools have never really gone away. There's still irc and bbs but now there's tor and people trying to start 'federated' internet and just so many programmers making weird things and putting them up. And then there's all online games… that's probably where most decline can be seen, old unpopular mmo's really are probably ghost towns if servers for them can even still be found.
I'm not saying your wrong, cause I feel it too, but surely there's more going on.

The Internet is more of an extension of the real life now, instead of being a world on its own. It is centralized and commercialized nowadays. Most of those new people didn't immigrate into the existing world, they took it over like conquerors and changed it, while corporations, politicians and so on followed. The old Net surely still exists, like you said, irc, bbs, forums, image boards, textboards and so on, but they are not the powerhouse the once were. Many of them dont exist anymore, turned bad or lost a tremendous amount of users. I understand what you mean, although to me it is like instead of having countless colours on the Internet we only have a few today, but in different shades.

Yeah that could be it. Eternal September as they say. Back in the day it wasn't just easy to get online. You couldn't do it on a computer you carried in your pocket made of shiny user friendliness. It must have felt like like passing through some kind of veil. Somewhat magical. And I bet when that was how it was, there were people who would go through the effort and end up in obscure places who nowadays dont need to bother as much. Just stay on Facebook. So theres both less people putting in effort to connect with odd communities online, and more people who never would have ended up on the internet. Well kept gardens die by pacifism as they say.

I've been feeling kind of down in the dumps. My personal life has been going better than it has been in a long time, but socially I'm in turmoil. I really wish people were more accessible in real life so I wouldn't be so dependent on the internet for everything.

Unroll the sphere in a different fashion. Think of it as infinitely many parallel circles, each one smaller than the next. Seen from the "front", each circle is a line which is 2sin(x) for varying x. So each circle is actually 2πsin(x).
That's a lot of handwaving there but I hope my argument is understood.

"The problem I have with this is that the step where it becomes the double sinusoid bump shape is assuming the result. It's not visually convincing enough."
Ha, the first comment was exactly what I tripped over and wanted to confirm, lol.
>>13658
Thanks roll fren. The thing I had trouble with tho was noticing that the unrolling corrisponded to the sin function, when I first saw the gif it wasn't obvious that should be true, and if it wasn't, the density of dx in the final integration would be wrong, right?
>>13657
I was a little worried I was going to get made fun of for all the handwaving I did in my exploration of why unrolling should be sin(x), so it's kinda a complement to hear it looks smart. TY… But! "Smart" is how fast a person could go if they try, "effort" is how fast they actually go, and "knowledge" is the places they go and the things they see. I hope you aren't feeling bad about yourself… Just because you haven't seen something I have, doesn't mean you aren't smart or that you haven't picked up some really cool pieces of knowledge!
