I have been astonished by hearing individuals who inherited wealth in childhood warn against sharing resources because people needing help should work for money in order to appreciate its value. Inherited wealth and/or substantial material resources are rarely talked about in the mass media because those who receive it do not wish to validate the... -

Fun Fact: Rule 110 is Turing complete -
Fun Fact: Rule 110 is Turing complete
"In mathematics and computability theory, an elementary cellular automaton is a one-dimensional cellular automaton where there are two possible states (labeled 0 and 1) and the rule to determine the state of a cell in the next generation depends only on the current state of the cell and its two immediate neighbors. As such it is one of the simplest possible models of computation. Nevertheless, there is an elementary cellular automaton which is capable of universal computation." - Ken Morley from Bookmarklet
"The Rule 110 cellular automaton is an elementary cellular automaton with interesting behavior on the boundary between stability and chaos. In this respect it is similar to Game of Life. Rule 110 is known to be Turing complete. This implies that, in principle, any calculation or computer program can be simulated using this automaton." - Ken Morley
"Rule 110 exhibits what Wolfram calls "Class 4 behavior", which is neither completely stable nor completely chaotic. Localized structures appear and interact in various complicated-looking ways." - Ken Morley
Ah, I must be reading the same book Todd read last year. - Ken Morley
What about rule 34? - Steve and 4 other people
Always wear a rule 34 tie with a rule 36 shirt. - Ken Morley

The peculiar history of cows in the OED | OxfordWords blog
"The Oxford English Dictionary (OED) has hundreds of words that relate to cows. For most English speakers, the idea that anyone would need so many words for one specific animal probably seems absurd. Especially cows. Perhaps it’s their mysterious ubiquity throughout children’s books and TV shows or just the dull empty look in their eyes, but it’s easy to assume, as a casual observer, that there really isn’t much going on there." - Maitani from Bookmarklet
"On a linguistic front, however, you’d be quite mistaken. Here is just a small taste of the strange and fascinating world of cow terminology:" - Maitani

"The bottom line is that in a game like this the developers have a direct financial incentive to make sure you regularly fail to complete a level.

I would add that the lives mechanic in this game ensures that you play and have fun _until you get frustrated_. Unless you have great willpower, most of the time you're going to come away from the game annoyed, because the game stops you because you're bad at it / it's being deliberately unfair. - Andrew C (✔)

RT @ESPNNBA: LeBron's greatest gift - and curse - is his fast-twitch, incessantly churning brain, writes @WindhorstESPN.
"Another huddle now, earlier in the season, and the Heat are having troubling dealing with pick-and-roll coverage. A candid discussion has broken out among players and coaches about what changes to make in the middle of the game. "Let's do it this way," James tells his teammates, "like we did in Game 3 against Dallas." The change is made. Later, Spoelstra will find himself reviewing the moment, searching his memories, and he'll realize the Heat did indeed play that way against Dallas. "I was like, c'mon, that was from a game three years ago," Spoelstra says, before raising his fingers and making a crisp snap. "And he recalled it just like that."" - Andrew C (✔)
"It's the middle of February now, in a game against the Golden State Warriors, and James is walking the ball down the floor with the seconds running out. The Heat are down two points and he's dribbling the final nine seconds off the clock with ace defender Andre Iguodala guarding him. James fakes a drive, then steps back and to his left in time to fire in a game-winning 3-pointer over... more... - Andrew C (✔)

Cops React to the Death of Eric Garner -- NYMag -
"In internet communities for law enforcement, like, "the One resource for Law Enforcement online," and Thee Rant, an NYPD message board, the Garner story has stirred up racial, political, and professional tensions, most of them quite ugly. While all of the comments below are anonymous, and therefore not verifiable, both sites do require registration for membership ("No ID card, No Approval!" says Thee Rant). By no means a comprehensive view of law-enforcement feelings about the incident, the postings do provide a different — if beyond upsetting — perspective." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet

Star Trek’s John Cho breaks barriers as romantic lead: 'I would call this revolutionary' | Toronto Star -
Star Trek’s John Cho breaks barriers as romantic lead: 'I would call this revolutionary' | Toronto Star
"John Cho in a romantic lead? It’s hard to remember the last time an Asian male played a romantic character in a television series. Unless you count the time George Takei as Sulu in Star Trek groped Uhura. But that’s because he was momentarily insane. Asians are among the most under-represented minority group on TV and Asian males in romantic leads are practically unheard of. But Cho now finds himself starring in a modern remake of Pygmalion and the colour-blind casting of himself as “Henry” with co-star Karen Gillan (Doctor Who) as Eliza Dooley in ABC’s Selfie for the fall TV season. “I would call this revolutionary. It’s certainly a personal revolution for me,” said the 42-year old actor who says he normally never gets offered such roles. Fans may best know the actor as the current Sulu in the rebooted Star Trek, or as stoner Harold Lee of Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

Rep. Michael Burgess Has a Horrible Plan for Dealing With Child Immigrants | Dallas Observer
"Burgess has introduced legislation that would slash $15,000 from U.S. aid to El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala or Mexico each time an undocumented child from one of the countries was found to have entered the U.S. "That's quite a policy," says Glen Biglaiser, a UNT political science professor and expert in U.S.-Latin American relations. "[Burgess] assumes that Central American countries can control their own borders. It seems a bit ironic that we would want to impose that policy when we are not so great at controlling our own borders."" - Jessie from Bookmarklet
