  1. 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:

  4. Re: Tsunami Slams Northern Japan After Massive 8.9 Magnitude Earthquake Strikes Off Coast Some dude riding out a big tremor in his apartment http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=871E8_DJ-rw
  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...
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. *highness. good shit tho. and, unless i have a giant cock-hole, the q-tip in your junk doesn't hurt, you pussies.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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

  16. If you're truly serious about what you want to do I would save up some more and get a tower with as much power in it as possible. I know 3 people who were in your position about a year ago and 1 went with a MAc Pro tower quad core with 10 gigs of ram and the other two skimped. 1 has already upgraded, the other wishes they could and the dude who made the big purchase said it's the best thing he has done. Saves him a ton of time in rendering, etc. Not to mention once he got a job he was able to work from home sometimes because his box was like the one at his job and he can count on the performance to be at a pro level. And if you're thinking getting the laptop will be good because you can carry it around and work anywhere, don't bother. A 17 inch Macbook Pro is a pain in the ass to carry around and you basically have to bring an office with you to work somewhere else. A workstation at home is definitely the way to go. So, if you can't get a big ol' tower, go for the imac.
  17. I agree with all of this. In the industry I work in, everyone has a blog, twitter, facebook, linkedin, quora, and a bunch of other profiles. I don't really partake otherwise in the whole deal. I've found 99% of the people who are not worth talking to are the ones who create 90% of the content on these outlets. They're trying to create an 'online presence' that sets them up to be a so-called 'expert' on the chosen niche. The thing is, the people who are doing big things and actually moving the industry along barely partake in these masturbatory exercises. When they do tweet or whatever, you can bet it's worth listening to what they have to say. And don't get me started on when you meet one of the 99%ers in real life. It's a non stop buzzword-fest and regurgitation of obvious 'insight' into things that are happening that they picked up off of other blogs and shit. tl;dr: The more you facebooktweetblog, the less you have to say.
  18. Re: UNBOXING • 24-pk mystery box if beer And then did they call you a legend? English people are always calling others legendary when they do things of an awesome nature.
  19. if you have a normal mirror you can just put some shaving foam on it when you're in the shower. once you wipe it off the mirror won't fog up and you can shave in peace. No need for a fancy shower mirror.
  20. The best part of it is that the tickets were so cheap that including a place to stay it's under $400 per person. So far it looks like we're going to the Bruce Lee Statue, riding an escalator that is a km long that has bars all the way up, hitting up Victoria Peak, and another mountain that has a giant statue on it, blowing up firecrackers on Chinese New Year, going on a mission for the best dumplings in HK, going to Kowloon for cheap beer and the shadier (awesomer) side of the city-state. Again, if anyone has any cool shit do do, post up. Will report back with a picture thread when the time comes, of course. And Symbols, i just might get all the dead skin on my feet eaten off by tiny fish. I'm kind of ticklish, so we'll see, haha.
  21. No one knows anything about Hong Kong? Fine. I'll just get drunk at the Bruce Lee statue.
  22. Re: fuck my life Wasn't this guy always coming on here and acting hard because he was from some place in Chicago? Now's he whining and crying because some girl didn't want to be his valentine anymore and had a bit of hard luck? attached files: C'mon_son.jpg
  23. Google EXIF editor and you should get some results that allow you to edit all the info that is stored along with your pictures. Good pies everyone.
