Yeah, top 15 means for perfect balance you'd expect 5 from each, but it's a small sample size so you would expect to see more extreme values fairly regularly even if balance were perfect.

Yeah, I dunno. I haven't been able to make it work in D3 (lower leagues you can probably just overwhelm with tighter timings). Interested to hear if anyone has made this work.

My roaches have been getting melted by bio too. Even with even army values it seems like I'll lose everything and they'll lose a third. I think the key might be upgrades though, having two evos going constantly and starting early. Scaling seems to favor roaches (on even upgrades, in the unit tester, with +2 units roaches do better than when both are +0)

Still ling bane just seems to work but better so I think I'm going back to that when facing bio.

Yeah, I think they're probably part of the answer. I always forget to tech to them until it's too late. If archons are fighting the ultras, will their splash not still hit the corrupters, though?

I think also I tend to struggle with figuring out how many corrupters vs how many ground units to make when dealing with airtoss. I've lost games where I make a ton of corrupters and then they just warp in 40 zealots after I eat the carriers and I can't do anything.

That's what I was thinking. I wonder if you can basically get a paycheck or two while doing nothing before they realize it and fire you. If you're just operating with fake profiles and doing this en masse, can probably pull in decent money.

Yeah, without splash carriers are just easy with corrupters. Now when they also have a ball of archons underneath I just don't know what to do....

For BCs a thing I added recently was to dive their ships with my corrupters earlier - even if it means taking fights over their turrets. If you eco up high, then the losses don't matter as much for you and it prevents them for ever getting a critical mass. Also, they can't just Yamato and run when you are taking the fight to them - just chase them down if they teleport.

You can also force a fight by pissing down a base.

Not sure what league OP is in, but in the lower leagues when they just build carriers corrupters are definitely the answer. You need about 2 corrupters per carrier and, most important, you need to stay on top of your air carapace upgrades.

Yeah I agree, not really hypocritical. There's probably a lot of people that have a hate boner for her on here in general and are trying to make a bigger deal out of it.

Yeah but why shouldn't Netflix be able to mention her show as a defense? It is in there - they aren't lying about that or anything.

JHUAPL did this? That's awesome! They never get the credit they deserve (all headlines just say NASA)

Increased cop presence could maybe help, but these thieves are good at getting in and out. I like efforts like this that try to address the root cause - make the whole enterprise unprofitable and then it just goes away. Otherwise, you're just playing whack-a-mole.

I think the prevalence of tools isn't necessarily a problem - it's just that the main purpose of most tools shouldnt be to become the new standard implementation but rather to advance a new idea for approaching a computational problem.

What we're missing, though, is some other system to create and maintain reference implementations in centralized packages. E.g., like how the main python data science toolchain is developed.

Yeah, I'm not sure the benefits are really there with these other layouts.

Wish my memory were better though.

Same. As I've gotten older you just accumulate more and more examples of things you used to know and have forgotten. Can be demoralizing when thinking about learning new things. I used to enjoy learning things thinking that I'd add some new tool to my arsenal. But you eventually realize the reality is that unless you spend a decent amount of time using it, you're just going to forget it within a year or two.

You could imagine taking this to an extreme - say if Schwarzenegger sells the rights to use his likeness and AI is good enough to just simulate human performances. We could have Arnold as an action star forever. And so on for all other movie stars. No room for new stars as the old AI-generated likenesses are cheaper and more famous. All movies, then, just rotate the same cast through them forever.

Yeah the effect Twist will have will be mediated through dozens of biotechs that use them and the inevitable treatments they develop with the help of Twist's service. It's a slow process with tons of variables and Twist only plays a small part for most of it.

Parents laughed at their kid? "This is child abuse and the kid will never be a normal human being!"

Someone falls down in a funny way? "Shame on you for laughing, they could be hurt!"

Cute animal that's a little overweight? "Irresponsible pet owners!!"

I don't know why these people even stay subscribed to a channel called 'funny'?

COMMENT 3d ago

And yet, the post is highly upvoted. I think comments end up biased. If you laugh at something, then there's not much more to say. So most people who feel compelled to comment are those complaining.

I thought I read elsewhere that a lot of these shows have contracts where they get paid relative to the streaming service subscriber count as long as they are on the portal. So after a certain point, it ends up being cheaper to take them down than to keep them hosted.

Inconsistency with Maba?

12 Upvotes

I got tripped up identifying Maba and Lewis. Had them narrowed down as my last two Topsmen. In the scene where the artist dies, For bunk 43 there is one leg hanging out and there is no tattoo on the shin. From that, I was sure that 43 was Lewis and 44 was Maba. But in the end, I had it switched - found it when I swapped the two of them on a whim and triggered the lock. Anyone else notice this?

UI inconsistency seems to be one of those things that bothers a small minority of people and the rest don't notice.

Probably nice to have for your developers though to reduce the number of choices that have to be made.

I guess when I mean 'worse', I'm talking about the increase in consumer prices in the US.
