My frakking jaw.

Let us start at the beginning (for it is a very good place to start). I like singing. I also like dancing. Occasionally, I combine the two. One such incident happened about 5 years ago when I was involved in a production of Cole Porter's Kiss Me Kate. During the opening number of the dress rehearsal...

Working my way through Jasper Fforde, classic Asimov (clasimov), Iain M. Banks (who signed my book), and Neil Gaiman (who signed my cheek). And, of course, the Fora.

That is what I am reading.

Re: Predicting lottery number spread using neural networks

I see where you're coming from, but my idea is not to find an underlying system to the numbers. What I want to do is find the probabilities of certain spreads of numbers. I'm finding it hard to illustrate this in words, so I might draw up a diagram tonight.

Predicting lottery number spread using neural networks

Hey guys. I had this idea a few days ago. I was talking to someone about lottery odds, and it came to pass that we got to discussing how to win by using statistics. My idea is this: say you buy 200 tickets. If you get the spread of numbers in each ticket right, you stand a very good chance of making...

Re: Can black holes grow?

So, black holes. Can they grow? Here is the definitive answer from an ex-physicist. A black hole is what's called a singularity. A singularity is essentially a point; it has no measurable length in the 3 normal spatial dimensions. What it does have is an event horizon. This is the edge that is essen...

Blargh!

Hullo there. I have come to eat your brains. All your brains. Tasty, tasty brains.

My name's TwoPointOh (my parents had a cruel sense of humour), and I'm mainly a lurker on IRC. But lo! I have been swayed by the ways of the fora!
