    9th circle of hell, now outside your front door...

    Up here in Vancouver it's been in the 50s all year up until last week where it finally hit the 70s. Fucking bullshit. I was in Vegas last week and the 100+ temps were a welcome change from waking up freezing in July with the temp outside in the 40s
  2. Re: Tsunami Slams Northern Japan After Massive 8.9 Magnitude Earthquake Strikes Off Coast I put in history in all caps so all the retards would realize this is a major world event. Of course there were bigger earthquakes in the entire 4.5 billion year history of the Earth. Fuck. Anyway, here's a wall of debris:

  5. Re: Tsunami Slams Northern Japan After Massive 8.9 Magnitude Earthquake Strikes Off Coast yeah, my bad. this wasn't that powerful at all.
  6. Re: Tsunami Slams Northern Japan After Massive 8.9 Magnitude Earthquake Strikes Off Coast 7th most powerful earthquake IN HISTORY
  7. Re: Tsunami Slams Northern Japan After Massive 8.9 Magnitude Earthquake Strikes Off Coast Yeah, been watching this for a few hours now. Watching the tsunami live here: http://english.aljazeera.net/watch_now/ They showed whole towns being swept away from a helicopter. cars and trucks jst getting swept off the roads as they try to escape. Fucking insane. They say there's tsunami warnings for Hawaii now too. I remember reading that someone on here just moved there or something...

    criticaLOL mass

    I knew it would be a Brazillian or someone from some second world country to do what every driver and person riding the bus here is thinking when they hit a critical mass event.

    bicicletas

    You've had some ok weather for the past few days if you brought a bike up with you. I'm going to check out the show as well. If I'm looking at the right event, it looks to be pretty good.

    *highness. good shit tho. and, unless i have a giant cock-hole, the q-tip in your junk doesn't hurt, you pussies.

    Cooking with 12oz

    Nah, it's easy. If I remember correctly you used to bake or something professionally and if you can handle that this will be a piece of cake. ha. I remember when I was a kid my mom would have a garden and pickle cucumbers, etc. from that as well as buy cases of fruit from the grocery store and go on two week long canning sprees that would supply us with canned fruit and picked veg for the entire winter. Canned BC peaches ftw.

    Cooking with 12oz

    Canning's actually really simple, albeit a bunch of work. It basically breaks down to making sure your jars are sterilized (boil them) and then doing what dude said above. With fruit it's usually a simple sugar you add instead of vinegar.

    Jeopardy IBM Challenge. WATSON.

    From this link: http://www.livescience.com/12859-3-strengths-weaknesses-watson-computer-jeopardy.html — Watson cannot time its buzz-in to the reading of a clue or "buy time."While playing "Jeopardy!" contestants can buzz in when a light goes on after host Alex Trebek stops reading the clue (click early on your button and you're penalized a crucial quarter-second). Watson does not have speech recognition software that allows it to "hear" Trebek; instead, clues are transmitted electronically to the machine, so it gets to "see" a clue the same time that a contestant does. Due to concerns that Watson could beat humans to the buzzer, IBM hooked Watson up to a signaling device that requires a physical pressing of a button, the same as human players. Ultimately in this setup, however, the advantage goes to us air-breathers because we can time our buzz-in to Trebek's clue reading. "The reaction time of a machine is faster than a human, but that's not what matters in "Jeopardy!" — what matters is timing," said IBM's David Gondek, a researcher on the Watson project. "The best players read the clue, try to determine when Alex will finish reading, and then buzz in." Gondek said that "Watson is a strong buzzer, but Watson is not anticipating Alex's reading, it is reacting to a signal. A human can come in before Watson." Also, as mentioned above, Watson is not programmed to buzz in until it has high confidence in an answer; a human can buzz in, though, and by rule have five seconds to work with before having to provide an answer. Human players, in other words, can take a risk and buy themselves time to come up with an answer, which is not a bad gambit if the category is an area of familiarity. Watson does not have this strategic luxury.

    Jeopardy IBM Challenge. WATSON.

    This is exactly what they did. Read it in some article a few days ago. I can't even fathom what sort of math went into getting Watson to get the subtleties of the questions on Jeopardy
