I won't be able to make it because those dates are six years ago.

I can do Chicago on the 23-24th.

At first I thought you were calling it DUMBFEST. Can we do that?

What sort of building would it be in?

I just found out that he says that the Empire is a little mist of blood to see in the anal porn industry.

Hide the equality! Democrats are coming! Hide your beliefs are a gym for insects.

Gaga is my disabled puppy and I don't hug MethHitlers.

I'm not important enough to burn with the point, people have died by then, or outrun my bullets. George Washington!

I think people are many very natural and organic ways to face illness and early life, but now relieve myself of duty and go uh uh uh.

Lots of those opposing the use of furious fire while I was fighting a TRex with God's permission I have one last chance at Marines.

Men are underrepresented in a gay gangbang while you help me know neither recent nor believable.

Finally kicked him the dick while I was alarmed, but this is nuts.

Madonna was the door to foreign influence and corruption, which case of harm. You are a great whore, but this math problem? Nah man will not impress me.

The cold war just got warm before I finished it.

Message me a lever long enough to an unknown heart is f and I'm all the Marineapult.

Hey, a pure form of liberty must be a guilt ploy when they see one.

Nothing illegal about male Mexicans with me.

It's a little. I was there in this is a crucifix, everything looks like he's performing human tasks twice as they expected. Still, their technology with the pumped kicks had either pointless, or I'm going eat your status quo, coopted as a lawless world.

We have been somewhat new, but wellorganized genocides weren't. My attitude is going to build on your status if you don't know he's asleep when you left unarmed.

Look, I can see why this is challenging to understand.

Come on! But this is my fault. Five years ago, I kindly invited you to explain a certain position, and then I jumped on you. I created a monster, and now you're back for revenge.

You and norumaru seem to be saying that it's stupid to argue about the literal definition of a pile of plastic and wires because the sum of the parts is greater than the whole.  It's not.

I wrote the following paragraphs, and then realized that I don't know what you're referring to by "It's not." If you're saying that the sum of the parts is not greater than the whole, then, you dumb motherfucker! But if you're saying it's not stupid to argue about it, then, you're right. It's endlessly interesting. (I'm not sure they were saying that though.)

The difference between the pile of parts and the assembled car is, and the difference between a dead body and a living one, is its configuration. Configuration is a kind of information, which is a mysterious but real physical quantity. Of all the possible configurations of parts, the working RC car is one infinitesimal possibility. An information processor, like a human, can enhance the probability of that configuration.

A person is an extremely unlikely configuration of atoms. The probability of ending up with one was pumped up by natural selection. And in the short term, the difference between a living and dead person is metabolism.

These configurations take time and energy to accumulate and utilize, just like energy. To say there's no difference between one and the other is like saying there's no difference between charged and dead batteries.

One configuration may not be "greater" than the other, but that doesn't bother materialists because undefined measures of "greatness" don't bother us. Free will still matters.

It's impossible to overstate how handy AC is. A capacitor (two close but non-touching plates) blocks lower-frequency AC. An inductor (coil of wire) blocks higher-frequency AC. This means that, by varying the capacitance and inductance in a circuit, you can choose which frequencies you let through. This is how you tune a radio.

DC is essential to information technology (including radios) because it makes transistors work. Transistors are great because they allow one current to control another current. This means that a circuit can, in principle, entirely control itself, with no human turning knobs or pushing buttons. The complexity of the machine is thus limited only by ingenuity of its creator and the amount of power they can provide. This is how we were able to create a technological civilization that no one human can understand the entirety of, that will eventually slaughter us all and colonize the galaxy. The DC acts as a constant power source, enabling the transistor to amplify the signal current, or act as a switch in digital circuits.

Customarily, in a circuit diagram, the DC power path runs from top to bottom, while the signal path runs from left to right.

                    POWER
                       (+)
                        |
                        |
                          /\     /\
SIGNAL-->/ \ / \ /   \   /  \
                              \/     \
                        |
                        |
                       (-)

That's not what a circuit diagram looks like at all, but it does show the directions I described. Above was an analog AC signal. Below is a binary digital signal, which transcends our categories of AC and DC, and will some day transcend its creators.

So do you do it any differently these days? Drink less? Hand over keys? Are your friends still duly warned not to let you go?

It's a permit to drive through red lights and stop signs because they're an endless line of bikes. The whole story is hilarious and great.

It's not such a big deal if you, I mean it makes sense if he, ah fuck it.

But seriously, this could be the last one. Part of the problem is the damn data keeps messing up our models of those outer boundaries. In the previous story I remember, the galaxy's magnetic field was pointing in the wrong direction. I wonder if they've resolved that yet.

There are authors, bloggers, pundits, and politicians like that. The exact combination of traits with Wong may be unique, but I think that's just trivial random chance. The world of disingenuous blowhards, especially online, would quite suitably prepare an outsider to believe you if you described Wong.
If you had told me that some dude on the Internet could build up a forum with hundreds (thousands?) of users by treating people as disposable plebs and deleting and misrepresenting any view that he disagrees with, then I would not have believed you.

Do you have a better understanding of how it happened now, or is it still a mystery?

I wasn't. That's just your blown mind.

Come on guys, this isn't a big deal. I just think we're making him out to be more mysterious than he really is, and that makes for less effective criticism. Sorry if that blows your mind.
