"Socialism with Chinese characteristic" is an often repeated phrase from the Chinese Communist Party. What is Chinese characteristic?

Well, if you take a look at the current chinese society it'll reveal a lot of things. You see in China today there are many millionaires and billionaires, this would have been unacceptable under the old CCP. Not only that Chinese people in general are no longer the socialist of the old CCP but back to the old greedy simple chinese. So you can see that Greed is obviously a chinese characteristic.

So if I change the phrase into, "Socialism with Greed" we now know what the CCP meant. Socialism is just sugar to cover up the actual Chinese trait, so if I remove the socialism you are basically left with Greed. So China is just like many western Countries but they are willing to take extreme measures and sacrifices to become rich.

Byldoness is incurable. It reminds me same thing as any witch burnings, looting of libraries, shariah Islam etc.

More and more I realize the only true form of government that's good for us is one almost entirely ruled by philosopher kings, a not necessarily technocratic society but one where the leadership is principally concerned with wisdom, knowledge, and ethics. You will never have that in a democracy or dictatorship. You will likewise not have that in something as shitty as Communism or a theocracy.

hello Ernst and Ernadette,
ima got stupid questions lots of much. lately i was doing thinking 'bout the new EU privacy data laws. i may have to go far afield to explain question:

if I create data via a physical action like a simple click, there is an algo analyzing/interpreting this physical action. e.g. if i do my click, this is the first data point i create. now an algo is checking "where on earth/GUI dat click be?" and if i happen to hit a like or dislike button, this is another data point i created. today algos do not stop there; they generate more data and interconnect all data points they could gather, including bought data points from 3rd parties.

the key point here is:
you need algo to interpret physical human action as data point.

now, a while back, there was a threda about alphabets "here you can get »all« data we collected about you" and i was curious and checked it. i noticed a hard cut. they no sent all data algo generated out of my physical actions. they just sent data of the first layer algo. (e.g. there was no data explaining how pic happend)

energy.
you need lots energy to empty area. energy for material light enough and strong enough to withhold the pressure difference. (do we even have something like that?)

if you empty a balloon, it crumbles and you have way higher mass per area as if you fill it with material/gas lighter than air.

>why doesn't vacuum float?
how can something, that doesn't is, do anything?
if anything, the object encapsulating the vacuum may float up, if the material + vacuum combined is lighter than the air. (thou, it would be more correct to say "it gets pushed up by the substance surrounding it")

yeah, was thinking it may be possible to "produce" some material like that, but would be super energy expensive to do so. maybe some carbon fiber thingy or some super high tech plastic.

i don't know of a single "natural resource" which could possibly do that (thou i might be wrong).

The simpler design is a helium balloon. Vacuum wouldn't cause all that much of an increased lift. Arguably it wouldn't create more due to need for the material to be extremely strong.

I guess speed is fine enough to keep the thread afloat for considerable time.

Let's play some Minecraft on our /int/ server:
hub.dev-urandom.eu:25565 (version: [current version here])

Wiki with more information: http://dev-urandom.eu/doku.php/
Overview map: http://map.dev-urandom.eu/map/
IRC: irc.dev-urandom.eu - channels: #chat (ingame chat), #int
Pirate-friendly client: http://mc.dev-urandom.eu/MC_Open_Launcher-1.1.1.jar

Basic commands:
/spawn - Teleports you to the spawn.
/home - Teleports you to your home (set with /sethome or by sleeping in a bed).

Don't grief and don't be an asshole (obviously). Basically, you can build anywhere, although there are some limitations. There is enough space for everyone! Don't get discouraged by the autism of the server, things will get easier for you later. Also, mods, admins and other players can help you.

I was detained last night at a store and a cop was called. Cop only gave me a court date two weeks from now.

Does anyone have any advice for me? I don't know if this is worth getting a lawyer for.

The store security and cop pitied me bc everything I took was for my new job. I guess that's why I'm not in jail right now.

Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.

I have heard that SOME stores don't bother prosecuting unless someone attempts to steal something big, or someone is repeatedly stealing but they'll have some pretty sophisticated loss prevention and security equipment. Like cameras, snapping photos etc. My one friend's brother said Target would do that when he worked there that they'd basically start a file on someone when they stole, and if it went beyond a certain amount to the point where they could hit em' with a felony they'd call the police next time they were in and get them charged with everything.

Now I always took that with a grain of salt because the guy's a bullshitter. But most corporate chain type stores have a non-confrontational theft policy unless they have an actual security presence because detaining someone could result in a lawsuit, and an employee or other customer getting hurt could result in a lawsuit, not to mention causing a scene and making customers think they're in a ba part of town or some shit.

>I'm not even sure "I panicked" is the right wording per se, but pretty much something along those lines of your judgment maybe being impaired from overworking or whatever.

Note on impaired judgement:
Do not say you were drunk or anything that is the result of you taking something – not even medication. Voluntary intoxication invalidates your state as taking something involves you acknowledging potential risk. Nothing that can specifically be YOUR fault. The classic case here involves a woman with depression absent-mindedly committing shoplifting as her mental awareness was reduced, she got off as their was no intent.

I use panic as a primer as that route is impossible to argue against and not the result of any conscious decision of the defendant. It's not magic but it mitigates.

>I've been reading anything I can ever since. From what I understand it's out of the store's hands, and now completely up to the police? Which confused me. I should look into that more. Thanks man

The entire history of science is categories and compartments being assumed, and then realizing they were wrong. Everything is always more hazy, interconnected, and complicated. The 'Western' view was kind of vital for scientific inquiry though i think, even if it isn't the most accurate way of representing reality.

In case you were surprised by parser, there is explanation. Ernstchan supports Wakabamark markup code.

The basic features are as follows:

  • Surround text with * or _ to make <em> tags. _Like this_ or *like this*. This makes the text italic.
  • Surround text with ** or __ to make <strong> tags. This makes the text bold.
  • Make an unordered HTML list by beginning each line with *, or -. You can add line breaks in list entries by breaking the line and indenting the next line with one or more spaces.
  • Make ordered HTML lists by beginning the first line with "1.", and the following lines with further numbers. It actually doesn't matter what numbers you use, as long as the first one is 1.
  • Make <blockquote> sections by beginning each line with ">".
  • Make <code> sections by indenting each line by four spaces or one tab. Code sections get shown in a monospaced font, and are not otherwise formatted.
  • Make short spans of code in normal text by enclosing the code in backticks, `like so` . To display code that contains backticks, use several backticks to surround it, ``like so`` .

There is a thread asking about German grammar, but why not make a languages general?

Why aren't you learning a language in your free time? Go for it, it's a good use of time. In a couple of years, you'll have an interesting skill.

I'm currently learning Russian, it's a horrible language crafted by Satan himself. Cyrillic is bad, but cursive cyrillic is just sadistic, it is no wonder that so many people resisted attempts at Russification.

Human infants develop language remarkably rapidly and without overt instruction. We argue that the distinctive ontogenesis of child language arises from the interplay of three factors: domain-specific principles of language (Universal Grammar), external experience, and properties of non-linguistic domains of cognition including general learning mechanisms and principles of efficient computation. We review developmental evidence that children make use of hierarchically composed structures ('Merge') from the earliest stages and at all levels of linguistic organization. At the same time, longitudinal trajectories of development show sensitivity to the quantity of specific patterns in the input, which suggests the use of probabilistic processes as well as inductive learning mechanisms that are suitable for the psychological constraints on language acquisition. By considering the place of language in human biology and evolution, we propose an approach that integrates principles from Universal Grammar and constraints from other domains of cognition. We outline some initial results of this approach as well as challenges for future research.
