Garbage Collection (in programming languages) is like the hotel housekeeping service. Conveniently clean after your mess every day for you while you are out… but frequently disrupt the most inopportune times as well
we all know that cyclists that don’t do doping and are “clean” have their blood up to your eyeballs full of substances that are at the very limit of the constantly changing doping regulation in force at the time.
i suspect “organic” labelled food is pretty much the same, that the thing you buy in your hipster grocery is still a greenhouse grown tomato (that’s why it doesn’t taste like a real sun-grown tomato) and still has all sort of substances in it, only that the chemical composition hasn’t made it into the latest regulation yet.
Satur(n)day, Sunday, Mo(o)nday. From Spanish, I also new that Tuesday is Mars’ day (Martes), Wednesady is Mercury’s day (Miercoles), Thursday is Jupiter’s day (Jueves) and Friday is venus (Viernes).
What I didn’t know is that Thursday is god Thor’s day (Thursday), which got romanized to the god Jupiter’s day. The goddess Frige’s day got romanized to the goddess Venus’ day. The god Tiw’s day (Tuesday) of war got naturally romanized to the god Mars’ day.
The other day I was thinking that 2^4 = 4^2, and I wondered if there are many couple of numbers that behave like that. As a result of playing a bit with the maths, I got some deeper insight and then documented it in this video:
I read this message as part of an animal protection campaign.
“Foxes are an important part of our countryside; they keep rabbit numbers down, saving farmers up to millions per year.”
It’s sad that the thing that moves people is just and almost exclusively money. The same happens when people try to convince republicans that clean energy is a good investment. How can we be so fucking retarded? As species, we deserve to die. Soon.
* on killing foxes vs killing rabbits, if you have something to object, I’ll refer you to the cartoon movie The Lion King
I think if you make a one-file-library, you know, one of those single .h file libraries, then you might as well make a .cpp for it, extract all the private noise from the header and distribute a cleaner and more professional library. Two files are just as easy to include as one. Just saying…
9737333 is a primer number. It’s the 648391th primer number actually. But 648391 is a prime number too! It is the 52711th primer number, what a coincidence. Guess what… yes, 52711 is a primer number as well, it’s the 5381th primer number. I don’t need to tell you 5381 is prime, although I will tell you it is the 709th one, and that 709 is the 127th one. Mr Mersenne new 127 is the 31th prime number, and we all know 31 is the 11th primer, that 11 is the 5th, that 5 is the 3rd, that 3 is the second, and that 2, and not 1, is the first primer number.
I wrote after a bit of playing one day that I realized that 17 is the 7th primer number and that 7 is a prime itself, which is cool. I decided to study this, and produced the following sequences:
in a world were practicing yoga with goats is a thing, i propose we agree on “massex” being a thing – you go with your partner to a place where you can make love to each other while a massexer massages both of you in the feet or head or whatever is accessible at a given time.
i’m at the airport, i’m hungry, and i’m about to do what i never do at airports – eat.
unfortunately there’s only one place open for eating, and more unfortunately, it happens to be a salad place. but the worst is still to arrive – as i am in the line i realize that the slogan of this salad bar says “create your own salad”.
how am i suppose to know what salads are made of? i do not poses the knowledge of the usual components of a salad. i do know lettuce. and tomato. but the stands behind the store attendant and cook is full of ingredients i do know of.
One of the best things that can happen to you is to find a yogurt, when you though for a couple of days there were no more left, in the back of the fridge hidden behind other stuff and which hasn’t expired yet.
