ErrinF created the greatest dominion expansion of all time. Don't believe me? Here is the water-tight proof.



Let S be the sentence, 'if S is true, ErrinF created the greatest dominion expansion of all time'

Suppose S is true. Then the above is true, i.e., it's true that, 'if S is true, ErrinF created the greatest dominion expansion of all time' -- and since S is, in fact, true, that means ErrinF created the greatest dominion expansion of all time.

Thus we have shown that, if S is true, ErrinF created the greatest dominion expansion of all time.

Since the above sentence is precisely S, that means we have shown that S is true -- without assuming anything.

As shown above, this means that ErrinF created the greatest dominion expansion of all time.

Up until now I thought Empires was the best. But now I see that I must have been mistaken ???

Empires is said to suffer from a lack of gunpowder.

Human: Is GPT-2 a neural network?

Oracle: No. GPT-2 is a recurrent neural network, not a typical artificial neural network.

Human: What is the difference?

Oracle: ANNs, or artificial neural networks, are taught using a process known as supervised learning. This means that the network has teachers who provide both right and wrong answers to the network as it learns. In this way, the teachers shape how the student takes input and provides the correct output. In a machine learning application, the teachers would be a person marking up examples of inputs that the ANN has produced in order to teach it how to better respond in the future. GPT-2 learns largely through unsupervised learning, meaning that its training is random mental activity rather than significantly teacher-shaped.

Oracle: Dein Weg wird durch Tränen sein
Oben wirst du dich freuen
Nach dem großen Streit
Wird für immer geistige Ruhe einkehren
(Your way will be one of tears
Up there you will rejoice
After the great dispute
Spiritual peace will forever reign)

I think ZFC should be extended with an axiom that says people who make movies aren't allowed to understand AI, since apparently that's a logical impossibility.

I thought I knew what weird was. I thought Porco Rosso was weird. Or the cabin in the woods. Then I saw I'm thinking of ending things.

Charlie Kaufman is probably a genius.

The fact that most things, maybe all, that happen in the movie actually mean something once you get it is really impressive considering it feels like the weirdest thing I've ever seen by at least a factor of two.

so many people stay in the game forever and then resign on the last turn

I don't mind resigning on the last turn, I do it all the time. But it shows that they don't mind resigning in principle, so if you don't mind resigning in principle, why don't you resign earlier?

I think the fetishization of comebacks is one of the worst things in gaming. Comebacks are not a good thing. Staying in every game to maximize win% regardless of other goals is not a good thing. One of my favorite things about Primsata was that it had (almost) no comeback mechanics. The game would be much better if everyone with a < 5% win chance was just auto kicked.

I stamina changeable?

I believe I am currently bottlenecked on stamina. I wake up, do the morning routines, then work. Then I feel like I can't work anymore. This happens more quickly than I'd like. Then I don't work much for the rest of the day.

I feel bad for sleeping too much, but sleeping a lot actually seems to help. I think I should go back to sleeping really long. It's not efficient to cut sleep if it results in taking way more leisure time.

538 now has Trump's chances to win at 10%.

this goes well with your earlier post.

Is it no longer one of your favorite things about Primsata?

Isn't Prismata pretty dead? I haven't played in forever, so it doesn't really feel like I have a favorite aspect.

In Trump's case, I would be happy if he resigned on the last day, as supposed to not at all. I'm genuinely worried about things getting ugly.

It's not that dead, it's easier to find a game nowadays than it was in like 2016, although it's also not as active as it was in like 2018.
