00:18:44 <Bike> what does that even mean.
00:18:57 <pikhq> Hell if I know.
00:19:05 <pikhq> Apparently it works in Webkit though.
00:19:29 <Bike> what constitutes "working"
00:19:42 <pikhq> "Renders in the browser" in this case.
00:19:47 <Bike> like i don't even know how i'd gauge success
00:19:52 <pikhq> The whole page's contents are in that script block.
00:20:01 <pikhq> So it doesn't render jack in Firefox.

00:36:44 <JesseH> :P
00:37:26 <Bike> you may be thinking, «doesn't it mean «complimentary»?» to which i'd say, it's pretty rude to think of me as "it". bikes can have genders too in this human-dominated society.
00:38:04 <JesseH> :O
00:44:03 <JesseH> Thinking about programming language creation has become a nice passtime

00:48:18 -!- yorick has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
00:48:24 <mnoqy> i suppose so
00:50:22 <JesseH> for me, anyways
00:57:15 <Koen_> when I think about programming language creation I get frustrated because I cannot think of anything *new*
00:57:32 <JesseH> its easy
00:57:40 <JesseH> Once you get the hang of it :P
00:57:46 <Bike> you know what they say: the greeks thought of everything therefore original thought isn't possibe
00:57:57 <JesseH> lol
00:58:52 <Koen_> well it's true the word "algorithm" sounds kinda greek right? so the greeks have to have thought about computer science
00:59:02 <oerjan> i do _not_ think the greeks thought of zygohistomorphic prepromorphisms.
00:59:15 <mnoqy> why wouldn't they have
00:59:40 <oerjan> Koen_: it's actually arabic/persian or thereabouts.
00:59:54 <oerjan> al-khwaritzmi
01:00:07 <Koen_> you just explained the joke oerjan
01:00:10 <oerjan> *-t
01:00:11 <Koen_> that makes it unfunny
01:00:16 <Bike> i guess oerjan hasn't read the enneades.
01:00:26 <oerjan> Bike: probably not.
01:02:23 <JesseH> Need a language made for making jokes funnier
01:02:54 <Bike> My jokes cannot be improved.
01:04:43 <JesseH> heh
01:05:31 <JesseH> Is there a language like..
01:05:46 <JesseH> "print 1 - 5"
01:05:51 <JesseH> output > 12345
01:05:54 <oerjan> incidentally the khwarizmians managed to get genghis khan particularly angry, and thus doomed their empire.
01:06:08 <mnoqy> > [1..5]
01:06:09 <lambdabot> [1,2,3,4,5]
01:06:12 <JesseH> Something, english like.
01:06:24 <JesseH> bad example
01:06:27 <mnoqy> english like in terms of syntax or semantics
01:06:27 <Bike> that doesn't mean anything.
01:06:46 <JesseH> syntax
01:07:09 <mnoqy> have you looked at "inform"?
01:07:26 <Bike> have you looked at "Syntactic Structures"
01:07:27 <JesseH> and semantics
01:07:40 <Bike> have you looked at "Strunk & White"
01:07:52 <JesseH> going to
01:07:59 <mnoqy> ok the next question is what do you mean by it having english-like syntax and what do you mean by it having english-like semantics
01:08:21 <JesseH> > [1..10]
01:08:23 <lambdabot> [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10]
01:08:24 <Koen_> inform 7 has pretty english-like syntax
01:08:30 <JesseH> I see
01:08:44 <mnoqy> of course, syntax is the least interesting thing
01:08:59 <JesseH> speaking of inform
01:09:04 <JesseH> havent payed a text adventure lately
01:09:04 <mnoqy> actually doing nlp might be interesting though because heh heh nlp
01:09:09 <Bike> that's a mean thing to say about chomsky!!
01:09:50 <augur> oh hello
01:10:23 <augur> syntax is the most puzzling part of language that we can properly study
01:10:35 <JesseH> I like MUDs better than regular text adventures.
01:10:39 * augur says, completely unbiased by the fact that he's a syntactician
01:10:40 <JesseH> anyone agree
01:10:56 <Bike> i only play megaman x fangames
01:11:30 <oerjan> augur: ok do you get pinged on "syntax", "semantics", or "chomsky"
01:11:47 <augur> oerjan: not telling :D
01:12:00 <oerjan> curses, foiled agina
01:12:02 <oerjan> *again
01:12:09 <augur> it was chomsky
01:12:11 <augur> but now its all three!
01:12:18 <JesseH> syntax
01:12:19 <oerjan> eek
01:12:26 <mnoqy> how did that 'a' move all the way over there
01:12:41 <Koen_> so this proves you cannot observe something without influencing it
01:12:45 <JesseH> lol wat
01:13:00 <JesseH> wait thats a lie
01:13:06 <JesseH> you can observe something without influencing it
01:13:28 <Koen_> clearly you're not a quantum physicist!
01:13:36 <JesseH> You might be right about that.
01:13:56 <Bike> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Observer_effect_(physics) the joke is,none f us know phhysics past the 20s
01:14:02 <JesseH> I'm a scientifical time waster guy
01:14:22 <nys> armchair syntactician
01:14:36 <oerjan> mnoqy: probably because 'in' is written with the right hand.
01:14:49 <mnoqy> that expl;ains things
01:14:54 <oerjan> so my hands had a little race condition.
01:14:57 <JesseH> I write it with two, actrue-ally
01:15:17 <JesseH> ima rebel >:D
01:15:19 <mnoqy> i have these problems aalll the time or at least i used to but probalbly i sdtill have them
01:15:56 <Koen_> I was told those races would disappear with purely functional programming
01:16:26 <oerjan> a very godwinian view of functional programming.
01:17:04 <JesseH> yo momma
01:18:00 <mnoqy> :^)
01:18:27 <Koen_> well I was also shown how to emulate concurrent programming using lazy evaluation
01:19:02 <Koen_> wait I was supposed to phrase that as a continuation to your joke

05:36:28 -!- shikhin_ has quit (Read error: Operation timed out).
05:36:53 <oklofok> because it doesn't actually give any syntactic structure to the word, it just does an unstructured computation
05:36:53 <augur> natural language syntax?
05:37:06 <oklofok> any kind of syntax
05:37:07 <augur> oh, well thats true of all rewriting systems
05:37:21 <oklofok> it's not true of context-free
05:37:24 <augur> tho non-CF grammars can give structure, just not the usual sort
05:37:45 <augur> you have to use DAGs not just trees
05:37:47 <oklofok> and it's not true of boolean grammars, which is what he himself does
05:38:28 -!- shikhin_ has joined.
05:40:06 <oklofok> and it's not true of tree-adjoining grammars
05:40:17 <augur> its also not true of CSGs
05:40:26 <oklofok> it's totally true of them tho?
05:40:33 <augur> no
05:40:53 <augur> you can assign perfectly good DAG near-trees to them
05:40:58 <augur> infact, its not uncommon to see it
05:41:33 <augur> http://origin-ars.els-cdn.com/content/image/1-s2.0-S0364021304000631-gr1.gif
05:41:36 <augur> they look like that
05:41:56 <oklofok> oo that looks nice
05:42:23 <oklofok> i should ask him what he thinks of dag near-trees
05:43:15 <oklofok> he's a pretty opinionated dude, mainly about formal grammars and ethnicity
05:43:24 <augur> well.
05:48:48 <oklofok> okay i don't think that's a very useful syntactic structure; i mean you would sort of hope that once you have the fixed-point solution, and thus know the "meaning" of each symbol, you would be able to check that the equations hold and given a string over them you'd know what language it gives. this is true of those that i mentioned, but as for
05:48:53 <Gracenotes> modulo a couple of grammars I believe you need some diagonalization arguments to construct, context-sensitive languages are basically unrestricted
05:48:55 <oklofok> context-sensitive, you just have to do the computatiomn
05:48:59 <oklofok> *computation
05:49:14 <oklofok> then again, what do i know
05:49:25 <Gracenotes> (in the same way that modern computers are Turing-complete)
05:49:26 <augur> oklofok: i dunno. havent thought about it might
05:49:41 <augur> ive moved away from grammar formalisms in the last year or so
05:49:55 <mnoqy> in the same way that modern computers are huge finite state machines
05:50:05 <oklofok> i have thought about it because i know this guy
05:50:08 <mnoqy> oh that's what you meant
05:50:11 <oklofok> otherwise i wouldn't have
05:51:15 <oklofok> Gracenotes: do you know the formal sense in which they are unrestricted?
05:51:43 <oklofok> they are the class of languages computable in linear space (so the class is PSPACE-complete with respect to P-reductions)
05:52:25 <augur> oklofok: ive been recently focused on abstract formal properties that classify languages
05:53:04 <oklofok> (PSPACE is certainly beyond what people call tractable, but there is life beyond it...)
05:53:21 <oklofok> (by which i mean there are bigger classes that have an interesting theory)
05:53:32 <oklofok> augur: sounds interesting, i don't get it
05:53:48 <oklofok> still syntax tho?
05:53:52 <oklofok> wait
05:53:58 <oklofok> you just said you are still a syntactician
05:54:02 <oklofok> so nm
05:54:06 <augur> oklofok: well, you can define CFLs = { L | L is generated by some CFG }
05:54:13 <Gracenotes> context-sensitive is strictly smaller than unrestricted, but grammars which are unrestricted but not context-sensitive are somewhat hard to come up with, to my understanding.
05:54:15 <augur> but that depends on the notion of CFGs
05:54:33 <augur> but there are infinitely many equivalent formalisms, why pick one?
05:54:35 <oklofok> oh unrestricted in the sense of the chomskian hierarchy
05:54:48 <augur> how can we characterize the CFLs without reference to the grammars?
05:54:58 <augur> well, the pumping lemma for CFLs is one such way
05:55:12 <augur> thats an example of what ive been trying to think about lately
05:55:51 <augur> Gracenotes: yeah, CSLs can do so so much computationally
05:55:55 <oklofok> Gracenotes: there are many examples. the standard example is either regular expressions with binary exponents, or finding a strategy in unrestricted go, depending on what you're reading.
05:55:59 <augur> almost, if not all computation we care about is CS
05:56:27 <Bike> Binary exponents?
05:56:40 <oklofok> augur: oh okay that stuff; i've thought about the exact same problem
05:57:05 <augur> oklofok: oh?
05:57:07 <augur> lets chat!
05:57:25 <oklofok> Bike: i mean like (a+bb)^(1101011)
05:57:34 <oklofok> where (1101011) is a binary number
05:57:41 <augur> mmm
05:57:49 <oklofok> and you need to know whether you get the full language iirc
05:57:49 <augur> what does that mean
05:57:52 -!- JesseH has joined.
05:58:10 <oklofok> augur: just (a+bb)^n where n is the number encoded by the bits
05:58:23 <augur> oklofok: how is that not just a regular language
05:58:27 <oklofok> if it's unary, then you can run the usual algorithms, but decompressing the binary number takes too much time.
05:58:39 <augur> oh i see, so its specifically the binary representation
05:58:48 <oklofok> augur: it is, but looks very different if you have a specific thing you have to compute about it
05:59:09 <oklofok> because you don't have time to compute its unary equivalent; that takes exptime.........
05:59:26 <augur> thats an interesting think that often comes up -- having meta-numbers is cheap, having internal numbers is not
05:59:58 <augur> a^n as a meta-notation for a n times is regular, a^n as actual code, not so much
06:00:00 <augur> hm hm!
06:00:08 -!- Bike_ has joined.
06:00:21 -!- Bike has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer).
06:02:36 <oklofok> i think the crucial thing is just that it's a compressed regexp; you get the same stuff in the sense of formal languages, but a different one in the sense of complexity theory (or state complexity)
06:03:22 <Gracenotes> so, the converse of this state of affairs is what was mentioned earlier, which is that CSLs lack structure... in the same way general computation does.
06:03:31 <oklofok> (state complexity is where you do an operation on languages, and you look at the size of blow-up in the corresponding machines)
06:03:34 <Gracenotes> I dunno what to think of the structure of language anymore, though...
06:03:38 <augur> indeed, because you're treating the regexp as a program for a machine
06:03:44 <augur> not merely as a specification of a machine
06:03:48 -!- Bike_ has changed nick to Bike.
06:03:59 <augur> Gracenotes: not CSLs, CSGs
06:04:26 -!- ^v has quit (Quit: Ping timeout: 1337 seconds).
06:05:51 <Gracenotes> ah. yes. the language class has at least somethin to do with it, though.
06:06:09 <augur> i dont think so
06:08:58 <oklofok> it's certainly an interesting philosophical question of whether a language has structure
06:09:22 <augur> oklofok: thats sort of why ive shifted away from grammars
06:09:30 <oklofok> but i don't know if there's a mathematical question about it. but it's interesting to see for example completely different cfgs for the same languages.
06:09:38 <augur> because i feel the "structure" we should be characterizing shouldnt be beholden to a particular grammar formalism
06:09:42 <oklofok> yes
06:09:50 <augur> but i dont know of any techniques for this
06:10:47 <oklofok> and about your suggestion of chatting, maybe we can do that some day, but right now i'm sort of trying to get away from the computer, as i have to go drive a car.
06:11:18 <augur> ya ya
06:11:28 <augur> ciao
06:11:32 <oklofok> "<oklofok> but i don't know if there's a mathematical question about it." well okay, i guess characterizing cfgs is a good mathematical question about it
06:11:34 <augur> tho
06:11:38 <augur> before you go
06:11:48 <oklofok> (well it's not a yes/no question so it's not the best kind of question, but anyway)
06:11:53 <augur> if you can suggest something to read on the subject?
06:12:04 <oklofok> *characterizing cfls
06:14:09 <oklofok> i've learned most of what i know from the guy i mentioned, and his notes are in http://users.utu.fi/aleokh/formal_grammars/, but it's not in a very finished state prolly
06:14:31 <augur> ill check it out

12:11:52 <Koen_> sooo Monads are just a nice type class that allows for a lot of syntactic sugar?
12:12:04 <Koen_> especially when used with "do"
12:12:31 <ion> koen: You should write a monad tutorial that explains monads as that.
12:13:14 <ais523_> `? monad
12:13:18 <HackEgo> Monads are just monoids in the category of endofunctors.
12:13:24 <ais523_> was actually trying to remember the definition last night
12:15:01 <olsner> ion: has no-one done that yet?
12:16:23 <ion> olsner: For all x, the probability of a monad tutorial existing that explains monads as x approaches one as time goes to infinity.
12:17:25 <boily> good monadic morning!

12:19:07 <myname> why?
12:19:15 <olsner> monads?
12:30:11 * nooodl is reminded by boily's presence to write that tutorial on applicative functors in terms of québécois profanity
12:31:27 <boily> ...???
12:32:01 <boily> ah! the “<de>” operator.
12:35:30 <nooodl> yeah. il fait froid «$» crisse «*» câlice «*» tabarnak.
12:36:22 <boily> HA HA HA!
12:36:49 <boily> may I suggest s/froid/frette/ for authenticity? otherwise the sacres are perfectly spelled.
12:37:33 <nooodl> some sources spelled "câlisse" so i had to guess!
12:38:25 <olsner> what does that mean?
12:38:25 <boily> <c> and <ss> are acceptable, even if the latter is more common.
12:39:11 <boily> olsner: damn it's motherfscking fscking freezing cold.
12:39:37 <nooodl> it's kinda untranslatable because you wouldn't make long chains of profanities like that in english!
12:39:57 <nooodl> but yeah it's vaguely "it's cold as fuck", except imagine the "as fuck" takes up over half the original sentence
12:40:12 <olsner> il fait froid = he's doing cold? and then the crisse, calise, tabarnak are additional profanities?
12:40:51 <nooodl> "il" is used as a dummy subject, as in "il pleut", "it's raining" (what's "it"? same thing)
12:40:56 <boily> the «il» in «il fait» is impersonal. this idiom points to a current state of things.
12:41:19 <boily> cf. nooodl's «il pleut». same usage as “it”.
12:41:47 <olsner> I got that, but I was wondering if it was a male gender dummy subject, and whether cold is done rather than been in french
12:42:43 <nooodl> «$» is really «en» and «*» is really «de». i'm actually not sure what it would translate to word-for-word but it's definitely good
12:42:57 <nooodl> "it's cold as christ of chalice(?) of (???)"
12:43:06 <boily> tabernacle, I think?
12:43:22 <nooodl> oh, yeah
12:43:31 <nooodl> god it's hard to imagine any of these words being actually offensive
12:43:48 <boily> they are.

12:45:28 <nooodl> 'Sometimes older people unable to bring themselves to swear with church words or their derivatives used to make up phrases that sound innocuous like cinq six boîtes de tomates vartes (literally, "five six boxes of green tomatoes", varte being slang for verte, "green"). This phrase when pronounced quickly by a native speaker sounds like saint-siboire de tabarnac ("holy ciborium of the tabernacle").'
12:45:59 <nooodl> tomates vartes sounds like tabarnac??

12:54:20 <boily> olsner: I suspect google translate being involved in that Turkish welcome.
12:54:31 <boily> (meanwhile, ♪ding♪ updated PDF!)
12:55:04 <olsner> boily: I can't tell, but suspicion seems prudent
12:55:55 <nooodl> i'm trying to find a good resource on french accents. they're pretty fascinating
12:56:09 <boily> olsner: oh. not you, but oerjan. I really have trouble distinguishing between you two.
12:56:19 <boily> @tell oerjan did you google the Turk?
12:56:19 <lambdabot> Consider it noted.
12:56:45 <boily> nooodl: if you find any, please do tell. wikipédia's articles on the subject are lacking in quality.
12:56:51 <olsner> boily: one is norwegian, one is swedish, how hard can it be?
12:57:16 <boily> olsner: is that a pick-up line to a wunza plot?
12:58:14 <olsner> could be, I guess
12:58:22 <nooodl> i'm watching youtube videos of people speaking all kinds of accents and they're pretty hard to tell apart
12:58:40 <olsner> the end is a bit too unspectacular for a wunza plot though
12:58:49 <nooodl> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_RxZc7eMeU

13:29:28 <boily> aaaaurgh. against my will and sanity, I'm being drawn deeper and deeper into the Realm of Enterprise Software.
13:42:48 <Koen_> can someone help me understand monads? namely why does this code work: http://pastebin.com/zLiUg67V
13:43:13 <Koen_> the exercise was to write the monad; the remainder of the code is not from me
13:43:31 <Koen_> I don't understand how "y - 4" can make any sense if y is "Sure 3"
13:44:04 <ais523_> y isn't "Sure 3"
13:44:31 <boily> “y” is not “Sure 3”, but “3”. the “a <- f” decomposes to “f >>= \a -> ...”.
13:44:44 <Koen_> oh
13:45:28 <ais523_> basically, if any line with "y" in even gets to run, then the "y" is bound to "q", where "safeRoot x" returns "sure q"
13:45:36 <ais523_> that's what the second line of the monad instance says
13:45:39 <ais523_> s/sure/Sure/
13:45:54 <Koen_> okay
13:46:06 <Koen_> that's this "<-" I didn't really understand
13:46:11 <Koen_> thank you :)
13:47:10 <Koen_> the tutorial explained something about the bind operator being used between the lines; so I was trying to imagine the first line bound to the second line
13:48:04 <ais523_> if the first line returns Nah, then what happens is that the second line desugars to something containing "\y -> safeRoot (y - 4)", but that function is never applied to anything

17:36:06 <augur> is a regular language
17:36:21 <augur> in fact, it is the language { 0w0 | w <- {0,1}* }
17:36:42 <myname> huh?
17:36:52 <myname> that would include 00
17:36:56 <boily> what's a «*» doing there?
17:37:06 <myname> and 000
17:37:22 <myname> i assume it's a kleene star
17:37:29 <boily> oh.
17:37:42 <myname> but i disagree with both statements
17:38:20 <myname> equal numbers of 01 and 10 would need either counting or an infinite dfa
17:38:31 <myname> both are no reagular languages
17:39:25 -!- Sprocklem has quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds).
17:40:23 <Bike> well, 00 does have equal numbers of 01 and 10.
17:40:37 <myname> indeed
17:40:57 <boily> there should be an Infinite Deterministic Finite Automaton.
17:41:14 <Bike> i don't see how to make it asymmetric if there are zeroes on both ends.
17:41:25 <myname> hmm
17:41:45 <myname> interesting trick, counting chars two times
17:45:03 <augur> boily: yes it would :)
17:45:22 <augur> include 00 and 000 i mean
17:45:32 <augur> infinite 01 and 10 doesnt actually require counting or an infinite dfa
17:45:34 <Bike> isn't it also 1{0,1}*1?
17:45:35 <augur> thats the surprising thing
17:45:38 <augur> it SEEMS like it would
17:46:48 <Bike> 11 has equal numbers of 01 and 10 and isn't it 0{0,1}*0, certainly.
17:46:53 <Bike> isn't in*
17:49:12 <augur> Bike: maybe, yeah
17:49:34 <augur> so maybe its 0w0 and 1w1
17:49:39 <augur> anyway, its a cute fact

18:45:38 <fizzie> But only for the "original" size. Maybe they've added more scaled sizes?
18:45:58 <fizzie> ("1440px wide" doesn't sound terribly impressive, since the 1080p they've done for ages is 1920px wide.)
18:46:58 <boily> hm. seems I can't dimension.
18:47:17 <mroman> and
18:47:32 <boily> and?
18:47:38 <fizzie> Or.
18:48:34 <mroman> exists{0.8} x: hasProperty(x,p) == forall{0.2} x: hasProperty(x,!p)
18:49:02 <Bike> nah
18:49:18 -!- conehead has joined.
18:49:25 <mroman> i.e if to 80% an X exists with P
18:49:25 <Bike> "all x are p" and "no x is p" aren't the only possibilities.
18:49:58 <mroman> then the remaining 20% must mean, that all X must not have property P
18:50:06 <Bike> Maybe one lonely x is ¬p and all the rest are p and shun it.
18:50:10 * elliott thinks you should define what this quant{p} notation means.
18:50:28 <mroman> Well
18:50:31 <elliott> does (forall{p} x: e) mean that for any given x, there is p probability that e holds of it?
18:50:39 <elliott> or does it mean that there is p probability that for every x e holds?
18:50:44 <Bike> elliott: from context it means the latter.
18:50:54 <mroman> the probability applies to the whole statement
18:50:55 <Bike> it's pretty bad notation though..
18:51:08 <elliott> well, how about not attaching it to the quantifier, if it is unrelated to it?
18:51:31 <mroman> it roughly translates to
18:51:45 <mroman> I'm to 80% certain, that an X exists with property P
18:52:10 <Bike> That's totally different!
18:52:16 <Bike> From either thing elliott said!
18:52:36 <Bike> And from what you said.
18:52:36 <elliott> so (forall{1} n: n = 42) holds over the naturals because I am 100% certain there exists an n with property n = 42...?
18:52:40 <elliott> or is that for exists...
18:52:49 <mroman> and therefore, I can say with 20% certainity, that no such X exists
18:53:21 <Bike> Well, yes, if you redo everything like that.
18:53:31 <mroman> which should also mean, that to 20% all X have not property P
18:53:40 <Bike> You're no longer 80% certain that no X exists with ¬p though.
18:54:12 <mroman> Like: I'm 80% certain that all guys are coming to my party
18:54:25 <Bike> that is another different thing!
18:54:28 -!- Koen_ has quit (Quit: Koen_).
18:54:29 <Bike> fucking hell, man.
18:54:50 <Bike> "80% certain that an X exists with property p" would be "I'm 80% certain that at least one of the people coming to my party is a guy"
18:55:02 * elliott decides the answer to your original question is whichever of "yes" or "no" you prefer :P
18:55:05 <mroman> which would be forall{0.8} x: x comes to my party
18:55:08 <elliott> or perhaps "50% certain".
18:55:26 <mroman> Bike: That's a different statement then
18:55:39 <Bike> yes. that is what i'm saying.
18:55:45 <Bike> you keep changing what everything means.
18:56:34 <mroman> Ok
18:56:46 <mroman> let's go back to the 80% exists, 20% forall
18:56:56 <mroman> If I'm 80% certain that someone comes to my party
18:57:12 <mroman> can I be to 20% certain, that everyone is not coming to my party?
18:58:21 <mroman> That's what my intuition says, at least
18:59:46 <mroman> but I'm not sure if that holds for other stuff
19:00:20 <mroman> i.e I'm 80% certain that in this randomly generated set an element x is zero
19:00:55 <mroman> then to 20% every element in the set is not zero?
19:01:27 <Bike> "this set has at least one zero" and "this set has exactly zero zeroes" are mutually exclusive, so...
19:02:29 <mroman> of course they are
19:02:40 <mroman> only one of them can be true
19:03:12 <mroman> "the ball is in the bucket" and "the ball is not in the bucket" are exclusive too
19:03:18 <mroman> but if the ball is in the bucket with 50%
19:03:25 <mroman> then it is also not in the bucket with 50%
19:04:41 <mroman> if it comes to probabilites, i should be able to express everything with notexists
19:05:38 <mroman> exists{0.2} x: x has property p == notexists{0.8} x: x has property p
19:05:52 <nooodl> i think the preferred notation for this is P(...) = 0.8?

20:19:07 <Halite> XOR and OR are a set that are indeed turing complete
20:19:29 <Bike> you mean logically complete.
20:19:40 <Halite> well it's called functionally complete actually
20:19:42 <Slereah> Well if you can do logic gates with it
20:19:45 <Slereah> It's TC as well
20:19:50 <Bike> call it that, then.
20:20:16 <Halite> now for type-completeness?
20:20:43 <Halite> e.g. if you can make all types out of a set
20:20:51 <nooodl> isn't "logic gates => TC" kind of a stretch. i mean you need theoretically unbounded storage space and stuff right
20:21:47 <Bike> an unbounded number of gates, if that's what you mean.
20:21:50 <Halite> Turing-completeness can theoretically be checked on turing machines so it's not really a stretch
20:22:10 <Bike> buuuuut logic gates are total.
20:23:18 <nooodl> oh yeah
20:23:19 <Halite> I'm just pondering what operator is abstractly explanatory - as in a TC operator which gives you an abstract sense of the meaning when read
20:23:53 <Halite> e.g. you can't tell what x NAND y NOR z means, so the set {NAND, NOR} isn't 'abstractly explanatory'
20:24:03 <Bike> what
20:24:51 <Halite> I mean
20:24:52 <nooodl> what about {NAND} (ps i don't get it either)
20:24:58 <boily> I smell someone trying to out NaniDispense me...
20:25:02 <Halite> well
20:25:14 -!- mnoqy has joined.
20:25:16 <Halite> by abstractly explanatory we'll come to examples
20:25:22 <boily> helloqy.
20:25:28 <mnoqy> helloily
20:25:36 <Slereah> All TC things require unboundedness, nooodl
20:25:59 <kmc> in complexity theory one often talks about a family of circuits, one for each input problem size
20:26:10 <Halite> The unofficial operator t(aa, ab, ba, bb, x) is abstractly explanatory where
20:26:20 <Halite> x, y(
20:26:21 <Halite> *
20:26:21 <Bike> help
20:26:26 <kmc> it's required that the whole family can be described by a single log-space turing machine, in order to avoid hiding too much of the work in the family description
20:26:59 <kmc> see for example https://complexityzoo.uwaterloo.ca/Complexity_Zoo:N#nc
20:27:18 <Halite> where t(aa, ab, ba, bb, x, y) = true if x=y=0 and aa, if x=y=1 and bb, if x=1 y=0 and ba, or if x=0 y=1 and ab=1.
20:27:33 <Halite> which is a truth table constructor
20:27:49 <Halite> t(0, 1, 1, 0, x, y) = x xor y
20:27:59 <Bike> That's a multiplexor, no?
20:28:03 <Halite> see the abstractness? xor's truthtable is just that 0, 1, 1, 0
20:28:19 <Halite> Bike: hmm yeah you are right I've made such device in logisim before
20:28:34 <Halite> Bike: by that I mean the t function
20:28:34 <Bike> Multiplexers are, wait for it... functionally complete
20:28:41 <Halite> you're right
20:28:47 <Halite> and also abstractly explanatory
20:28:51 <Halite> we've found it
20:28:56 <Bike> Yes. We've found it.
20:29:00 <Bike> What the fuck
20:29:03 <Halite> as it is official and useful
20:29:11 <Halite> we had it all along though...

20:30:33 <oklofok> i think it's abstractly explanatory what's going on
20:30:37 <Bike> "bcpl syntax"? you're such a fuckin hipster man
20:30:38 <oklofok> you guys are just being dense

20:31:21 <Halite> LIGHTBULB
20:31:38 <Bike> lightbulbs are not functionally complete
20:31:40 <kmc> augur: that the condition of the 'if' is a 5-statement brace-delimeted block with side effects
20:31:41 <nooodl> {n-- {nand}??
20:31:53 <Halite> {or, not} -- I previously thought it wasn't but I thought about it
20:31:59 <kmc> Bike: you know i am
20:32:03 <augur> kmc: why is that weird
20:32:07 <Halite> nooodl: not abstractly explanatory - what does x NAND y NAND z mean?
20:32:13 <Bike> look you can't just
20:32:18 <augur> oh!
20:32:18 <Halite> but or , not seem to be...
20:32:20 <augur> the CONDITION
20:32:22 <Bike> you can't just say "abstractly explanatory" as if any of us have any fucking clue what you mean
20:32:24 <augur> yeah ok thats weird
20:32:29 <Bike> i mean you can but it's pointless
20:32:36 <augur> not entirely weird, but
20:32:41 <augur> i mean, you can do that in lisp, for instance
20:32:48 <augur> two of the statements are lets so thats not too bad
20:32:59 -!- shachaf has left.
20:32:59 <Bike> thankfully, wikipedia has a list of functionally complete sets http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Functional_completeness#Minimal_functionally_complete_operator_sets
20:33:06 <Halite> hmm
20:33:09 <Halite> let me say and , not
20:33:20 <Halite> they sound abstractly explanatory
20:33:33 <Bike> stop using that term god
20:33:35 <Halite> and, or, not...
20:33:38 <kmc> the equivalent in GCC C would be if ( ({ int x = 4; y -= 2; ... }) ) { ... } else { ... }
20:33:48 <kmc> (or maybe one can omit one of those sets of parens)
20:34:00 <Halite> Quick! What is (x and !y) or (!y and x) equal to?
20:34:10 <kmc> augur: right, it's not weird in Lisp because I'm used to Lisp syntax being expression-oriented
20:34:12 <Bike> x and !y
20:34:26 <Halite> oops typo
20:34:30 <oklofok> Halite: isn't it kind of abstractly explanatory
20:34:32 <Halite> Quick! What is (x and !y) or (!x and y) equal to?
20:34:47 <kmc> augur: but Rust mimics C syntax on a concrete level, while turning statement-blocks into expressions
20:34:49 <Halite> ^^ answer that now, slightly different ^^
20:34:54 <kmc> so there's some dissonance
20:35:03 <Bike> itself?
20:35:12 <Halite> Bike: ...lol
20:35:29 <kmc> you can also do things like «return 1 + (return 2 + (return 3))»
20:35:40 <Bike> which returns three?
20:35:42 <kmc> yep
20:36:10 <Bike> was there a particular rationale for rust's syntax?
20:36:25 <kmc> this aspect of it, you mean?
20:36:25 <Halite> I mean, (x and !y) or (!x and y) means: x,y must be true,false (where x and !y = true), or false,true (where !x and y = true) -- ORed together it's obviously x xor y
20:36:42 <oklofok> Halite: if you flip x, it becomes (!x and !y) or (x and y), which is equality. so the original is xor i guess.
20:36:44 <Bike> kmc: just in general, I mean.
20:36:54 <Halite> oklofok: yep
20:37:04 <Halite> real simple
20:37:06 <oklofok> i mean that's kind of abstractly explanatory
20:37:25 <Halite> yes it is- and that it explains the truth table is too
20:37:26 <kmc> Bike: I think it's the usual tension between "familiar to C and C++ programmers" and "better"
20:37:33 <Bike> right.
20:37:45 <Halite> kmc: "better" wins
20:38:03 <kmc> the more you want to do high-level and higher-order stuff, the more expression-oriented syntax is appealing
20:38:07 <kmc> and it's just cleaner in a sense, too
20:38:17 <oklofok> and abstractly explanatory
20:38:20 <kmc> yes
20:39:01 <kmc> Halite: look, I don't *like* the fact that most languages in use today have C-inspired syntax, but this fact makes it hard to claim that tossing out C syntax entirely will "win"
20:39:05 <Halite> not exactly, if you used a really complicated function f(x, y), you can't look at it and say "ooh, its table is false,true,false,true" or something
20:39:09 <kmc> if your definition of "win" includes anything about people actually using your language
20:39:24 <kmc> I don't love Rust's syntax but it's good enough
20:40:04 <Halite> I think I might make mine a hugely stripped down dialect of Lisp
20:40:11 <Halite> After all, I <3 parenthesis

20:41:21 <mnoqy> what's going on here
20:41:25 <Halite> "Ooh, mysterically hard programming language, let's do it!"
20:41:27 <Bike> Abstract explanation.
20:41:30 <nooodl> hi mnoqy
20:41:33 <mnoqy> hi nooodl
20:41:34 <Halite> mysterically = great for being esoteric
20:42:07 <Halite> Bike: 'abstractly explanatory' is just a term I made up. No mentions to it will be given in any other sense.
20:42:49 <nooodl> mnoqy: we're talking about abstractly explanatory sets of boolean functions ☺
20:42:57 <mnoqy> good for communication. now everyone will know what you mean
20:43:11 <Halite> lol
20:43:21 <Halite> 'abstractly' -> not that basic, in-depth
20:43:28 <Halite> explanatory -> like self-explanatory stuff
20:43:40 <Halite> indepth self-explaining
20:43:48 <mnoqy> nooodl: yeah i saw those words happening a bit up there
20:44:21 <oklofok> mnoqy: abstract explanatority is actually really simple once you get the hang of it; for example consider x NAND y NOR z
20:44:39 <Halite> you can explain "(x and !y) or (!x and y)" - it is only true when x=true y=false or x=false y=true -- it's obvious
20:44:43 <oklofok> yes
20:44:47 <Halite> do you get me?
20:44:49 <oklofok> it has a _meaning_
20:45:15 <Halite> but it doesn't explain seperate entries in the truth table
20:45:27 <oklofok> as for x NAND y NOR z, you cannot actually explain what the meaning _is_
20:45:36 <oklofok> so it's not abstractly explanatory
20:45:39 <oklofok> (in the abstract sense)
20:45:48 <Halite> for "(x and !y) or (!x and y)", "x and !y" is a truth table entity, "!x and y" is a truth table entity.
20:45:52 <oklofok> yes
20:46:02 <oklofok> and then you just combine
20:46:05 <oklofok> (or)
20:46:09 <Halite> yes
20:46:23 <oklofok> ...so
20:46:28 <oklofok> are we talking about parsing here or what
20:46:39 <Halite> so an operation that expresses ONLY a single truth table entry with a negation and a connection operation
20:46:41 <oklofok> x NAND y NOR z has two conceivable parse trees
20:46:42 <Bike> you're my hero oklofok
20:46:48 <Halite> aka. {and, or, not}
20:47:13 <Halite> phew people are beginning to understand it now - are they
20:47:39 <oklofok> Bike: i hi5'd myself so bad when i got the "yes"
20:48:03 <oklofok> Halite: i don't really know what you mean, but i'm somewhat curious as to whether you just mean unambiguous parsing
20:48:22 <Halite> I don't mean unambigous parsing
20:49:01 <Halite> I mean that there is an operation with just one combination for truth, a negation operation, and an operation to sticky the single truth table entites together
20:49:34 <Halite> which are {AND (0,0,0,1), OR (0,1,1,1), NOT (1,0)}
20:49:48 <oklofok> "with just one combination for truth" you mean an operation where only one combination evaluates to 1?
20:49:57 <oklofok> combination of inputs
20:50:00 <Halite> yes
20:50:06 <Halite> preferably when x=y=1
20:50:09 <mnoqy> so are you talking about disjunctive normal form or what
20:50:20 <Halite> what is the disjunctive normal form?
20:50:22 <oklofok> that could also be it
20:50:24 <Bike> talkin bout my baby
20:50:26 <mnoqy> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disjunctive_normal_form
20:50:55 <Bike> well, earlier halite /was/ trying to describe minterms...
20:51:06 <Halite> Approximately yes
20:51:27 <Halite> ah nvm
20:51:34 <Halite> Exactly what I was talking about
20:52:01 <oklofok> and here i thought i had you all figured out
20:52:29 <Halite> lol now you know then
20:52:36 <Bike> cool, wikipedia has different articles on disjunctive normal form and canonical normal form for some reaosn.
20:52:51 <Halite> ^^ and I'm glad for it ^^
20:53:44 <Slereah> "Canonical normal form" is the least helpful word ever
20:53:52 <oklofok> was just about to say that
20:54:05 <Slereah> You could basically call it "That thing we use a lot"
20:54:09 <oklofok> i thought the article for "canonical normal form" would be about canonical normal forms in general
20:54:11 <oklofok> oh
20:54:21 <oklofok> or are we talking about the same thing
20:54:29 <Bike> well, it is. but disjunctive and conjunctive are the normal forms that get used most.
20:54:47 <oklofok> for logical formulas maybe
20:54:49 <mnoqy> what about normal canonical form
20:54:50 <Bike> p canonical imo,,,
20:54:54 <oklofok> but other things have canonical normal forms too
20:55:22 <Bike> well "canonical normal form" is restricted to boolean algebra. for... some reason.
20:55:38 <mnoqy> thanks wikipedia, the authority on math's
20:55:38 <Bike> Maybe both articles ar ejust kind of crappy??
20:55:55 <oklofok> maybe it is
20:56:08 <oklofok> i guess i'd just say normal form in most contexts
20:56:12 <oklofok> or canonical form
20:56:17 <oklofok> or normological canoform
20:56:22 <Bike> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canonical_form wow this article is kind of
20:56:49 <oklofok> yeah that's what i thought canonical normal form would be
20:57:36 <FireFly> `? normological canoform
20:57:38 <HackEgo> normological canoform? ¯\(°_o)/¯
20:57:39 <Bike> that wouldn't work for all things, like, in linalg a "normal" matrix means something by itself, so you'd end up with a normal canonical normal matrix or some shit.
20:57:44 <FireFly> missing entry IMO
20:57:45 <Bike> basically, fuck mat

20:57:50 <Slereah> So I am doing some functional esolang thing
20:57:54 <Slereah> And I am wondering
20:58:05 <Slereah> Should I only define all the arguments once
20:58:11 <oklofok> yeah fuck math
20:58:20 <Slereah> Like f(arg1,arg2,...)
20:58:21 <Slereah> And then
20:58:25 <Slereah> Inside the function definition
20:58:28 <Slereah> Just call it x
20:58:34 <Slereah> For a big vector thing of arguments
20:58:38 <Bike> sounds suspiciously like math
20:58:44 <Slereah> I can extract them all since I have a projection function

21:00:00 <Slereah> It is the way µ recursive functions are defined, technically
21:00:13 <Slereah> You have to always use all arguments for every operation in the function

21:04:52 <Halite> What kind of formula do you get when you make a simple conversion method from a multiplexor setup to a formula of boolean algebra? I know now -- its my favourite question
21:05:08 <FireFly> What is the answer?
21:05:26 <Halite> FireFly: A DNF (disjunctive normal form) formula.
21:05:33 <FireFly> Oh. Naturally.
21:05:37 <Bike> forma forma fo forma
21:05:42 <Halite> forma
21:05:45 <Halite> lol
21:06:36 <Halite> NOT operations would have most precedence, AND would have second precedence and OR the lowest.
21:06:49 <Halite> I bet that could be the standard too.
21:07:25 <FireFly> I think that's fairly common, yes
21:07:29 <Bike> now, what kind of logic normal form do you get from a butterfly shifter.
21:07:43 <FireFly> Good question
21:07:47 <Halite> you get a palindromic one
21:07:56 <Halite> because butterflies are symmetric
21:08:21 <Halite> and palindromes are horizontally symmetric

23:31:22 <Bike> they're not really designed on the gate level.
23:31:28 <Halite> why
23:31:40 <Phantom_Hoover> what you're talking about is not really 'lower-level' than assembly anyway, it's a parallel hierarchy
23:31:57 <Halite> it is one op per line
23:31:58 <Bike> Because how would you describe something like caching or pipelining in turns of gates?
23:32:02 <Phantom_Hoover> Halite, because they're absurdly complex by now
23:32:04 <Bike> and more importantly, why would you.
23:32:27 <Bike> It would be like describing an animal in terms of electron orbitals. Pointless, misleading, and honestly, wrong.
23:32:54 <Halite> -.-
23:32:55 <Halite> no it's NT
23:32:56 <Halite> NOT
23:32:57 <Halite> NOT
23:33:06 <Halite> ~tries to chill~
23:33:18 <Phantom_Hoover> there's... you have a misconception here, where you think that designing a new chip is 'low-level'
23:33:31 <Halite> assembly is built on new chips :D
23:33:42 <FireFly> I think Halite should write a Feather implementation for us
23:33:50 <Bike> The same assembly language can run on multiple microarchitectures.
23:33:52 <Halite> what is Feather
23:33:52 <Bike> Scandalous, I know.
23:33:54 <FireFly> Although that language is arguably on the other end of the spectrum
23:33:56 <kmc> Bike: you can describe those things in terms of gates, for a notion of "gates" which includes stateful things as well
23:33:56 <Phantom_Hoover> god i wish Fiora was here, she knows this shit
23:34:07 * kmc casts Summon Fiora
23:34:17 <Bike> what level spell is that? zzo?
23:34:27 <Halite> to be honest lower-than-assembly languages with classes... wtf is wrong with me
23:34:34 <Fiora> @_@?
23:34:34 <lambdabot> Maybe you meant: @ ?
23:34:39 <FireFly> Hiora
23:34:40 <Bike> maybe she did.
23:34:43 <Phantom_Hoover> Fiora, explain CPUs to Halite plx
23:34:53 <Fiora> um um I'm not sure where to start on that
23:34:59 <Bike> explain the basis of modern life over irc to a stranger
23:35:13 <kmc> hey Halite you should a) learn to be quieter, b) do the projects from http://6004.mit.edu/
23:35:14 <Halite> they have RAM, ROM
23:35:15 <Fiora> um the DNA is connected to the, RNA
23:35:20 <Fiora> the RNA is connected to the, proteins
23:35:21 <kmc> in which you design a CPU at the gate level
23:35:23 <Halite> -.-
23:35:24 <kmc> including pipelining
23:35:24 <Bike> shit XD
23:35:28 <kmc> Fiora: :D
23:35:30 -!- augur has joined.
23:35:43 -!- pikhq has joined.
23:35:44 <mnoqy> wow
23:35:46 <Bike> clearly it's time for me to talk about how silly the central dogma is
23:35:48 <Fiora> you asked for the basis of modern life!!
23:35:50 <Fiora> XD
23:36:34 -!- augur_ has joined.
23:36:39 <Halite> basis of cpu pls
23:36:42 -!- augur has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer).
23:37:58 <Bike> hm. i actually don't know how i'd explain 'life'. kind of an interesting question.
23:39:02 <Bike> maybe just start with fungi. that way i can have kmc do the hard part of intro and i can just follow up.
23:39:22 <Phantom_Hoover> start with viruses and work up from there
23:39:56 <Bike> i guess the problem is that fungi aren't autotrophs. and neither are viruses, by virtue of not being anythingtrophs
23:40:04 <Halite> ...
23:40:30 <Halite> computers are entirely based on ram and rom
23:40:44 <Halite> I don't even see or, and, not operations
23:40:46 <Phantom_Hoover> so is a fungus that feeds on vessels for animal feed called a troughtroph
23:40:53 <Bike> man, i wish.
23:41:07 <Phantom_Hoover> Fiora, you see the scale of the problem re Halite here
23:41:13 <Bike> instead you get ridiculousities of grammar like "mixotroph"
23:41:37 <kmc> Halite like... read a book or something
23:41:40 <Halite> ...
23:41:58 <Bike> halite's actually illiterate and irc-ing through voice recognition (thanks fizzie)
23:42:04 <kmc> what do you mean that computers are based on RAM and ROM and not logic gates?
23:42:09 <Halite> ok I am redoing it all
23:42:13 <kmc> they have loads of logic gates
23:42:18 <Halite> --.--
23:42:26 <Bike> is that a biplane
23:42:26 <kmc> (also you can implement a logic gate with a small RAM, which is how FPGAs work)
23:42:29 <Halite> and I just deleted my language too
23:42:41 <Halite> kmc: and a multiplexer
23:42:41 <Phantom_Hoover> doesn't ram... work by logic gates
23:42:50 <kmc> sometimes
23:42:54 <Bike> the circle of stupidity.
23:42:56 <mnoqy> ram comes in many exciting flavours
23:43:06 <kmc> static RAM is basically logic gates
23:43:06 <Halite> ok tell me now
23:43:10 <Bike> lemme blow your mind here: a ram is a multiplexer??
23:43:19 <kmc> dynamic RAM works by storing charge in a capacitor
23:43:23 <Halite> Bike: yes it is!
23:43:28 <Bike> with flip flops or whatever.
23:43:32 <Bike> don't care
23:43:41 <Halite> omg
23:43:41 <Bike> my biology class actually started with population biology.
23:43:48 <Halite> rams are multiplexers
23:43:49 <kmc> but some people would use "logic gates" to mean purely combinational logic, which would exclude any RAM because it's stateful
23:43:53 <Halite> OMG
23:44:06 -!- ChanServ has set channel mode: +o kmc.
23:44:12 -!- kmc has kicked Halite come back when you're not bouncing off the walls.
23:44:14 <mnoqy> thanks chanserv
23:44:16 <pikhq> kmc: Though IMO if you discuss "gates" you're meaning "things analogous to circuits".
23:44:17 -!- ChanServ has set channel mode: -o kmc.
23:44:25 <Bike> ok, well, sorry for going on with that.
23:44:28 <pikhq> Which end up necessarily being stateful.
23:44:32 <Phantom_Hoover> i kind of like how the 'standard' view of low-level computing is totally wrong
23:44:37 -!- Halite has joined.
23:44:41 <mnoqy> that was quick
23:44:41 <pikhq> Phantom_Hoover: Oh?
23:44:49 <kmc> wow Halite learned self control in 15 seconds
23:44:54 <Halite> Just quiet me and I'll tell you when I've finished
23:45:01 <kmc> Teach Yourself To Exist In Society In 24 Hours
23:45:19 <Bike> pikhq: see, now i want a computing substrate that uses gauss's law and other electrodynamics instead of "just" idealized circuits.
23:45:35 <pikhq> Bike: :(
23:45:42 <nooodl> Halite: that's kinda what kmc just did! you were supposed to come back when finished
23:45:45 <Phantom_Hoover> well like, as various people have just been saying it doesn't all reduce to logic gates on silicon
23:45:47 <Bike> you got some kinda problem with integrals pikhq??
23:45:59 <pikhq> I just dislike computing them.
23:46:03 <Bike> relatedly you know what's really weird? the way coulomb's law is an empirical one.
23:46:06 <Bike> like, what the heck
23:46:10 <Phantom_Hoover> and then there's the fact that 'machine' code is essentially a heavily interpreted language
23:46:19 <Phantom_Hoover> Bike, what do you mean
23:46:31 <Halite> I don't like kicks nooodl. I prefer +q.
23:46:32 <Phantom_Hoover> you can derive coulomb's law from maxwell's equations can't you
23:46:54 <nooodl> what's an empirical law?
23:47:01 <Phantom_Hoover> good question
23:47:28 <Bike> gauss's law is part of maxwell's equations, right?
23:47:33 <Phantom_Hoover> yeah
23:47:51 <Phantom_Hoover> it is the first of maxwell's equations
23:47:55 <pikhq> Yeah, it's pretty funny that essentially all ISAs are just abstractions around stuff.
23:48:01 <pikhq> *Especially* on x86.
23:49:17 <kmc> Halite: I don't think what you like is very relevant in this situation.
23:49:25 <Bike> well i mean, what's the basis of gauss's law? just, hey, we checked and things work like this.
23:49:34 <Bike> I guess it's the same for kinematics too.
23:49:48 <pikhq> Bike: Welcome to empiricism.
23:49:49 <Phantom_Hoover> so by 'empirical law'
23:49:59 <Phantom_Hoover> you mean 'every single scientific law ever'
23:50:13 <kmc> Halite: anyway I will take you coming back as an indication that you learned very quickly how to control yourself, which is great if true, but if I kick you again it'll be a ban
23:50:18 <kmc> so be careful
23:50:23 <Bike> well, after some abstraction, i guess, sure.
23:51:27 <Bike> I'm just used to physics being "OK here's this rule, which works because of some things involving smaller things that we'll go over in the next level class", so it's weird that coulomb's law is just... the end.
23:51:28 <mnoqy> in which science is a load of balogna. why can't we create a universe with nice laws and live in it instead of trying to model this confusing heap of junk
23:51:43 <Halite> kmc: But sometimes I do need to ask questions about what's coming and nobody thinks twice
23:52:06 <Phantom_Hoover> Bike, well like i said gauss' law seems to be considered more 'fundamental' these days
23:52:07 <kmc> Halite: but you lose that privilege by annoying people
23:52:16 <kmc> which is all the more reason for you to cease your annoying behavior
23:52:36 <Halite> I hope you know, kmc, that I don't want to be annoying.
23:52:38 <kmc> it's not like being +q would allow you to ask questions either............
23:52:39 <Bike> mnoqy: iunno, "flux through a surface is proportional to the charge in the surface" isn't so bad as laws go.
23:52:54 <Phantom_Hoover> since a) it works better with non-point charges and b) you can derive coulomb's law from it with a dirac delta and spherical symmetry
23:52:56 <kmc> Halite: i'm glad
23:52:59 <Bike> Phantom_Hoover: they're like, you can prove one from the other, right
23:53:32 <Phantom_Hoover> yeah, although you'll need to poke at coulomb's a bit to cover the full range of stuff gauss' covers
23:53:47 <Bike> for my next "i'm high as hell and don't know physics" question, imo what's the deal with multiple time dimensions??
23:54:11 <Phantom_Hoover> what deal
23:54:29 <Bike> I don't know, like, what would that even mean.
23:54:33 <mnoqy> there can't be that many deals can there? how about all of them
23:54:33 <Phantom_Hoover> i guess you can add extra negative terms into the minkowski metric
23:54:39 <Bike> Some physicists seem to have some idea but I sure don't.
23:54:47 <Phantom_Hoover> i remember something interesting about that but i forgot what it was
23:54:59 <Bike> Oh, Wikipedia has an article.
23:55:25 <Bike> And it says exactly what you just said! GOod job.
23:56:22 <Bike> but i was thinking of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space-time#Privileged_character_of_3.2B1_spacetime
23:58:30 <Halite> I am so tired.
23:58:35 <mnoqy> :)
23:58:40 -!- Halite has left.
23:58:42 <Phantom_Hoover> well other dimensions are ultrahyperbolic!!
23:58:59 <Bike> But like I see stuff like "For example, when N < 3, nerves cannot cross without intersecting." and think "well aren't you uncreative"
23:59:21 <Phantom_Hoover> the wire-crossing hypothesis
23:59:36 <Phantom_Hoover> i wonder if the poor fuckers realised what they were getting into when they started investigating it
23:59:36 -!- Halite has joined.
23:59:45 <Bike> which fuckers exactly
