@ehashman This is what Colbert asked Marie Kondo about when he had her on his show.

She makes no attempt to match the fitted corners to each other and just sort of lets the edges fold in on themselves.

Maybe we've been over-complicating this!

Beagle is one of my favorite hang-out-and-play-video-games entertainers. Yesterday's stream was a fine example, with hedge knight Coobie xD, the Lone Rawr :3

[CW: Battle Brothers contains video game violence against canines.]

That adventure hasn't been split out into its own video yet, so that's a link to the VOD. This story gets going around 5h05m.

Sadly, the career of The Lone Rawr :3 only lasts a half hour, but that makes it much more shareable than the campaigns that have been going for weeks or months.

It's hard to tell if you're crossing a picket line on the web.

I guess you'd need a browser extension that checks some directory of domains and the unions that represent them.

@uint8_t Does Seagate at least provide a decent warranty?

@dankwraith Ah I had just recently been considering this as a fun thing to maybe do some time.

I like that they tumble even as you're "holding" them, I hadn't gotten to figuring out that part yet.

Did you implement physics for this, or is it on another engine?

State politics 

@Wolthera Do you have other expectations of science?

What you're describing, broadly speaking, looks like most scientific process: make a hypothesis, gather some data about how A is different than B, use statistics to interpret the data.

I guess the trick will be that most game results don't show you the entire result of the RNG, the 32-bit number or whatever it is. You only see pass/fail, or a selection from a loot table with dozens of items, not millions.

So you probably need a lot more than two observations, and/or observe events with a very broad range of outcomes.

Apparently you can reconstruct the state of a common pseudo-random number generator from knowing only *two* sequential outputs: jazzy.id.au/tags/prng.html

Most games probably don't use secure random sources.

Does this mean that you could make a Tool-Assisted Speedrun that could predict the RNG?
