Had to find it after it was mentioned in the video.  This is so confusing though.  Very easy to accidentally combine the nth number with the (n-1)th instead of the (n+1)th.

Ooh, I kinda like this one, though I'm not totally convinced it's harder, since for any tile there are two possible other types you can combine it with. I wish it let you play on like 2048 does.

I thought it was easier. I tried it once yesterday, I was tired and not really paying a lot of attention to the game and I beat my 2048 high score.

OK, just finished it.  I definitely feel that 2048 is easier.  2548 has far more steps so the game is so much longer.  Also came close to getting filled up with a bunch of tiles that were all the same.

The golden ratio is less than two, so the game will certainly be longer.

I think in principle Fibonaccis is easier than exponentials.  This game here is longer because it starts with 1s and not with 2s as default tile, so you really have to join the 2584 tiles to get to the 2584, while for 2048 you only need 1024 tiles.  You have to be a bit more careful, as tiles might more easily join unexpected compared to 2048, but the fact that you can correct errors from both sides, and especially can free trapped spots behind a Fib_n block by only going to Fib_{n-1} helps a lot.

Also note that you need much less space on the board to snake your way up to Fib_n, as Fib_{n-1}, Fib_{n-3}, Fib_{n-5}, ... , Fib_{n-2i}, Fib_{n-2i-1} connect to Fib_n.  While this not always works out perfectly, for large n it almost automatically does as you don't build too large blocks by accident.  As ((1+sqrt(5))/2)^2 > 2, this would also mean that you need less space to get to higher numbers.

Only thing why this looks harder/longer is that you starts with 2s in 2048 for whatever reason instead of 1s.

I didn't see the chart below and didn't remember my nuclear chemistry well enough, so I kept getting stuck at Magnesium.  But yeah, once you manage to line up two Oxygens for Silicon, the rest of the game is trivial.

That's the first 2048-alike I've completed.  I feel I learnt something.  Did I learn true things?

Seems pretty accurate.  I think the main problem is that the radioactive decays should produce a He-4 as well, but I can see why that was ignored.

Ah, so this explains why stars naturally evolve into enormous balls of magnesium over the course of their lifetime. Nature is so beautiful.

I got 4 Iron 56s in one game, compare to in 2048 where that would be a 8192 tile, while I haven't come remotely close to doing. I like how in this game you can't just mash the arrow keys and do well.

Eh, it's not nearly as accurate as I would like.  Magnesium is not some sort of stoppage point in the process, Mg + alpha will fuse to Si.  And all of the by-products are left out.  Ugh!

In this variant it's quite doable to get into the millions, once you know how the new feature works: http://sbeyer.github.io/2048/

Alright, so I've posted Demetori/Touhou music before, but I have to do it again. I'm pretty sure I'm in love with every song in this album.

Does anyone here type without looking at the keyboard?

I type without looking at sthe scroeen and correcting my mistakes.
I correct half my mistakes without having to look at the screen though. Sometimes, you just know that what you just typed was wrong.

Yeah, I know what you mean. When I made that post I was intentionally just typing faster than I actually can, so when I didn't know which button to press next I just pressed something and let it stick.

Also, 75 WPM adjusted to 73 WPM. I don't touch type, but I can at least type at a pace which is reasonably fast. I think also two of the errors in there were kinda unfair, I put a full stop at the end of a sentence that didn't have one, but ehh.
Huh? Oh, there were typos in your post. Didn't notice.

Recently, I noticed that when I pour hot water into my tea cup, the water level quickly drops a bit. At first, I thought maybe the tea bag was absorbing the water, but why that would make the height of the water in the cup draw was beyond me. But then, I noticed that the height of the hot water still dropped even when there was no tea bag.

What I was witnessing must have been the water decreasing in volume as it quickly cooled and contracted once in the cup. Go material science! Or does material science only care about solids? Whatever, that's the domain of physics it reminded me of.

That's why you should warm the cup before pouring the final hot water into it.
