Checking if I had "Trump starting a Mastodon server" on my bingo card

A US constitutional amendment that I want but will never happen:

1. All rights granted by the US Constitution as amended shall extend equally to all natural persons.
2. Neither the Government nor the States shall make any law which distinguishes citizens from non-citizens.

Oh god. I feel dumb. I just now realized why the US far right consumed and digested the gun rights movement in the 1970's. Why they *specifically* picked gun rights for assimilation, when gun rights had previously been a nonpartisan issue.

It's me. I am boo boo the fool.

Proposal: let DN (Dunbar's Number) be the maximum number of people that a typical person can cognitively be on a first name basis with. Now define the dimensionless unit Dunbar as the ratio of (size of largest clique all on a mutual first name basis) over (size of population).

Huh. I think I just identified a PTSD memory blackout. A lot of my later traumas forced me to remember everything, just for sheer self-defense from psychological abuse. But I think I just discovered a locked trauma memory at an earlier time.

Noooo I'm mentally workshopping dialogue for "Alas, a Basilisk", an Author / Eliezier Yudkowsky Real Person Fic Slow Burn Enemies To Lovers Philosophical Dialogue in 24 parts, to be released weekly.

Send help.

Randomly remembering how good the Rose/Kanaya first meeting arc was. From Rose's GameFAQ to their pesterlogs weaving and bobbing through Rose's defense mechanisms to them actually enjoying each other's wit.

Unpopular opinion: Homestuck still good, actually?

Oh no. My brain is now writing Eliezier Yudkowsky x Male Reader Real Person Slash.

random thought, the "punk" in things like cyberpunk is about having your own agency in spite of world that tries to stop it


which of these is funniest to add to a random sentence, like "it's coming to end us all"

@mhoye Ooh, sort of a Rationalist rogue faction of "Paradise Lost" Techno-Satanists who have sworn opposition to the creation of Roko's Basilisk (God), but only in the most Rational way possible.

New conspiracy theory: Bitcoin's high-priests and biggest populists are secretly all terrified Singulatarians trying to divert enough computing resources to cryptocoins that the Singularity can't come about.

@junebug Here in the Bay Area, we have legal weed *home delivery*. Hop on a website, browse the menu, delivery person comes same day or next day (depending on company and location), pay by cash or debit card.

Like… what made that inevitable? Why, of all the possible ways to map computer science time with physical time, did almost all the important algorithms end up in P, when PH \ P is such a larger universe in terms of absolute number of problems?

And this is definitely the cannabis talking, but isn't it odd how the algorithms that are most important to us tend to be the ones contained in P, with most of the rest contained in BQP or EXP, and not in the truly outlandish wilderness of things like O(n!).

It may be the cannabis talking, but I also can't shake the feeling that this is lurking near the edge of Decidability and the Halting Problem. I wonder if there are any useful connections between P vs NP and computability.
