Reddit User Account Overview


Alright so I wanted to give you guys a scenario and ask how you would play this. I haven't yet thought about it deeply but I will get to it and post my own answer in the comments. Day: 4 Players left: 5 (let's say players 1,2,3,4,5) **The players** are... 1. You, a confirmed **inves**. You have not checked anyone left alive. You were attacked and healed n2 2. A confirmed **doc**. You trust him 100% and he trusts you 100%. He has never posted his full will but told you in a whisper at the start of d4 that he can still self-heal * An **Arso** who ignited n3, he has nobody doused. He only ignited 2 people, jailor and retri. * A **maf killing** (assume 50/50 probabilities for GF and mafioso). Maf killed n1 and n3 but failed to kill you n2 due to doc * A **townie** ^(You only know who the confirmed doc is, not who of the other three is what role.) **The suspects** claim the following: 3 claims **sheriff**, says 4 showed up sus last night. He checked (now dead) innos n1 and n2 4 claims **doc** and that he was on jailor n1 and n2. Says he self-healed n3 5 claims **BG** and that he was on jailor n1-n3 No dead people have visited any of the three suspects. We also assume that we live in a fantasy world where all players are smart, not throwing, not afk, paying attention and with no random disconnects. Further assume that you can't tell from previous chat/voting who is more likely to be what and that the confirmed doc will always vote with you no matter what. How do you go about winning this? **Who do you lynch?** Who do you tell to go on who?

I think for a technology to be "cutting edge" it needs to eventually have usefulness beyond just the demo. If it can't be incorporated to normal vehicles then it seems like it was a step in the wrong direction and you have to take a step back to find the right direction.

Once you see the pin on the f2 pawn it becomes very easy: 1...Qxg3+ 2.Kh1 Qf3+ 3.Kh2 Qxf2+ 4.Kh1 Qxe1+ 5.Kg2 Qg1# Obviously 2.Kf1 is met by Qxf2# and any other king moves later in the line don't matter, black plays the exact same moves.

I hate the guy saying "it's not ranked" like that's an excuse for this idiocy. The only game mode where this is acceptable is in classic. If you aren't playing classic, you will be expected to know that jester or amne will not keep the game going and if you mess up because you don't know this it is entirely acceptable to call you a fucking idiot. Whether it contributes to your elo or not has no relevance.

If everyone who wasn't perfect at their job was immediately fired most people (including you) would not have a job. He did something wrong, he was reprimanded for it, now it's time to move on and hopefully have him do a better job in the future. This is exactly what people mean when they talk about cancel culture. Random people getting extremely harsh punishment because an internet mob goes on the barricades and the employer doesn't want to deal with that. I'm glad this employer didn't let the mob have its way and instead went for a reasonable response.

>I would have hated it if I had started with the after the heist episodes. That couldn't have happened because it's not really "any order". Rather, the show is split into 4 parts (5 if you count the very first episode which is just like a minute long and explains the gimmick). The first part consists of 2 episodes (basically introducing the characters and how they know each other), the second part has 3 episodes (the preparation), the third part has 2 episodes (after the heist) and then the White Episode is the last part. Within each part, the episode order is random, but all the episodes from part 1 come before part 2 and those come before part 3. So there are only 24 different combinations.

Wars have been fought over religious differences, genocides have been committed against religious minorities and in my countries around the world there is very strong negative sentiment against some religions (e.g. in "western" countries often against muslims, in muslim countries against jews). It's just not comparable to other differences of opinion. Why is this the case? I don't really know, to a certain extent it's probably because the religions that survived were the ones that were intolerant of other religions (the tolerant ones were attacked by the intolerant ones but not the other way round). You'd hope we would eventually get to a world where we can treat differences of religion just like the difference in what sports team you support. But with the Holocaust being less than a century old and some survivors still alive, I don't think we can pretend we live in a super enlightened world where that could never happen again.

Rook takes knight, then White moves his king to the f-file (Kf1, not Kf8), then Rook b5 and then white can prevent the immediate mate with Rook e8. If black plays Rook to b1 (checking the king), White can block with Rook to e1 and the position is suddenly more or less drawn. In chess moves: 1... Rxe5 2. Kf1 Rb5 3. Re8 and if 3...Rb1+ 4. Re1 with minimal advantage for black, probably drawn. Instead of Rb1+, black has 3 winning moves, the most obvious probably being 3...Rd2. If white tries promoting with 4. d8=Q, black can now play 4... Rb1+ 5. Re1 Rxe1+ 6. Kxe1 Rxd8 leaving him a rook up, clearly winning.

Basically everything has an associated cost with it (not price, **cost**). If the price is set below the cost, people would use it excessively, even when the use to them doesn't justify the cost to society. If you want all people to have access to it, it is usually better to give people money and then let them decide what they spend it on. One exception I would make is for primary and secondary education because it is general consensus that every child should receive it and you can't really overuse it (you can't go to school at 10 different schools simultaneously).

There is a lot of space between 0 packages delivered by drones and 100% of all packages. My guess is this is gonna be pretty useful for rural areas where distances are longer, risk of collision with buildings and other drones is lower (lower population density also means fewer drones flying around) and the daily volume might not warrant an entire delivery truck. In the US, somewhere between 15 to 20% of the population lives in rural areas, which is a substantial portion. Expanding into suburban areas could then come very naturally.

This is the issue at the heart of OpenAI. Making AI models that are truly "open" means you will inevitably not have much control over how people use it. I'm not even gonna pick a side here but you can't do both, have a model that is open for anyone to use and build on and also make it "safe", however you define that.

Gamemode is AllAny: I got jailed n1 as WW and because nobody died and spy said there were no maf visits, I got jailed again n2 and narrowly avoided execution. Spy bugged the (hidden) jailor, I attack both jailor and spy. However, when the day starts, I very quickly convince everyone that I literally cannot be WW, since spy also died. The only person who knew this wasn't true was a jester (or at that point maybe still exe?) who kept it to himself. This allowed me to stroll to a nice win, but the endgame was actually quite interesting: Final 5 were: The aforementioned jester, amne turned jailor, unconfirmed surv, pretty much confirmed retri (with unused vig and BG in the graveyard) and me. Jester got lynched (I think no innos), at which point he said something that let me know he was aware of the jailed WW mechanic but nobody else bothered to really figure out what he was saying. Amne jailor jailed the unconfirmed surv claim, while I stayed home because if jester didnt haunt jailor I was pretty much fucked and retri was probably using BG on jailor. Luckily, jester haunted jailor and jailor exed surv. With retri having used the BG already, I won the 1v1

If the minimum wage was 24$/hr either millions of people would be out of jobs or (more likely) the Fed would have had a lower interest rate for most of those 60 years, increasing the money supply and leading to inflation which would end up making 24$ worth about the same as 7.25$ in today's money. Of course in that case they would be asking why the minimum wage isn't 70$/hr. At the end of the day you cannot legislate that "people shall be more productive". And somebody working in fast food or a cleaning crew will usually not create enough value to warrant such a high pay. Some people take that as a personal insult towards those people but it's not. It's the reality of the situation. If the job you can do can also be done by many other people (because it doesn't need a lot of training/knowledge) then that is objectively not worth as much as somebody who does a job that is equally in demand but can only be done by a small number of people.

Nothing was retroactively changed. What West Germany did was the following: First, during the occupation after WWII the allies established that the time of the Nazi regime did not "contribute" to the statute of limitations for any Nazi crime (I don't know the precise definition but I imagine it means something like crimes committed by the Nazi regime or with it's express or tacit approval) passing because the courts were not able to prosecute those crimes. So what counted was not the date on which the crime was committed but rather when the allied forces took over control (slightly different by sector). The statute of limitations for murder (and other crimes punished by life-long imprisonment) was 20 years. In May 1965 (a few months before the 20 years would have passed, exactly 16 years after West Germany became a new country) the starting date was moved to the 1st of January 1950. In June 1969 (again a few months before the 20 years would have passed) the statute of limitations for genocide was removed and that for murder was raised to 30 years. The UN had passed a resolution in November 1968 which stated that war crimes and crimes against humanity had no statute of limitations. Finally, in 1979, the statute of limitations for murder was removed. As you can see, at no point had the statute of limitations passed. The other relevant thing that happened were some decisions by courts, especially that again John Demjanjuk in 2011, which essentially allowed the prosecution of people for accessories to murder without having to prove this in every specific case. It was enough to prove that they were a relevant part of the "murder machine" that allowed the Nazi regime to kill people on an industrial scale.

These takes are so stupid. I'm not worried about what life will be like in 100 years when it's plausible that in a developed economy almost nobody needs to work. I'm worried about the next 30 years when millions of people start becoming unemployed and *unemployable* in their chosen fields but the majority of people are still working and we are nowhere close to the point where we can just stop working and let machines do all the work. Even if something like UBI becomes commonplace throughout most rich countries, it will necessarily mean a much poorer life than those who still have jobs. You can think it's irrational and stupid but people will not compare their quality of life to ours now or that of their grandparents 50 years ago or even that of poorer countries, they will compare their life to the lives of the people around them. That will breed a lot of anger and resentment among those displaced by AI. THAT is what really scares me. Because when you feel like "the system" no longer works for you and that system is a liberal democracy, it will mean you vote for extremist parties who don't care about preserving democracy.

This doesn't work because, unlike in the "unexpected hanging" paradox, a mafioso who doesn't attack will not know if the veteran alerted last night. So the vet alerting n9 and shooting mafioso would still be surprising him because the mafioso has obviously stayed home (otherwise we wouldn't reach n9) and has no idea if the vet had used his alert in the previous nights or not.

And the other side said "if you want to have a business you need to be a business for everyone, not pick and choose who you serve". The people in this comment section are being just as hypocritical as these guys. And the status of "protected class" has very little to do with it, because the anti-LGBT bakeries could just as easily argue they aren't discriminating against LGBT people but against people who support gay marriage. It just happens to be that with straight people there is no reason why they would find out if that customer supports gay marriage, but they are discriminating against people with a certain belief/worldview, not against people with a sexuality. If you want to be consistent, you (and most people in this comment section) would have to be on with that.

No, they can still have friendlies, Nations League, qualifiers for continental competitions, etc.

Commented by /u/diener1 in /r/soccer on December 5, 2022 05:06:14

First off, I already said it would get rid of qualifiers, hence reducing the total number of games. Second, at the absolute most you would have 3 additional matches and those are usually going to be the nations that don't make it very far, hence it is very unlikely any player would play the full 10 matches. I actually think the main argument against this (aside from maybe logistics) is that getting rid of qualifiers might reduce the number of national team games so much that it's hard to actually form a well functioning team and test out new players, but I think the difference to now would be rather minor

Commented by /u/diener1 in /r/soccer on December 4, 2022 19:22:12

My very different proposal: - Get rid of qualifiers entirely, every one of the 211 member associations gets to participate. - The host countries qualify for the group stages (let's assume for now that it's 3 countries) - Of the remaining 208 teams, the bottom 192 countries in the FIFA ranking (not including the last world champion and host countries) play a knockout stage - After that round, the 96 winners and the next 12 lowest in the FIFA ranking (excluding the world champion and host countries) would play another knockout stage - The 54 winners and the last remaining 4 non-host countries (meaning the world champion and the three highest ranked nations besides the WC) would play one final round of knockouts to determine the 29 teams who join the hosts in the group stages. - Then proceed as normal with 32 teams. This would take a bit longer but you could easily have many games happen at the same time as there is hardly anyone who definitely needs to watch Vanuatu vs Honduras and also Gambia vs Färöer Islands. Additionally, having no qualifiers would mean fewer international breaks during the season, allowing leagues and other cups to finish the season earlier. Every country would see themselves represented at the world cup, while also weeding out worse teams rather quickly. The fact that they are knockout games would definitely add to the drama. There might be some logistical issues with so many games but the trend seems to be going towards countries hosting it jointly anyway, so it might be manageable. What do you guys think? Too crazy?

When you start talking about cancel culture, there are some who will tell you it's not a real thing and that it's just people experiencing the consequences of their speech. We need to call out this type of behaviour as a threat to free speech and saying "free speech is just about the government" is a widespread misconception that stands in the way of this. Another example: If you don't like Dave Chapelle's bit on trans people, you can decide to downvote it on Netflix or just don't watch it. But if you actively try to pressure Netflix into removing it and cutting their ties with him, that is no longer a natural consequence of his speech, it's an attempt to silence him.

The former is a First Amendment issue; the latter is not. Both are matters of concern in a free society. That is not to say that criticizing people for what they say is a violation of that principle. But when people start [pressuring a random person's employer to fire them]( because of what that person said or did in their free time, that's no longer just a "social consequence", that's people actively targeting somebody to destroy their life and attempting to silence them/punish them.

There are a number of issues I have with your post. First let me go through the explicitly given examples: * Long-distance travel (buses and trains) was liberalized here in Germany a few years ago, with the 100% state owned Deutsche Bahn losing its monopoly and prices being considerably more affordable. * "Bread lines" literally refers to the food shortages that were very common in the soviet block, where agriculture was brought under government control. In Mao's China, the "great leap forward", which included agricultural reforms, ended up leading to about 20 million people starving to death. Once farms were given back to individuals, productivity skyrocketed. * Energy, similar to food, is a market with a LOT of competition. Sure, there is the OPEC cartel that you can't really do much about but most western countries have a lot of competition and therefore as low prices as you could hope. * Schooling is government-run in almost every country with private schools making up a pretty small addition. Banning them won't improve the government-run schools. Higher education in the US is more complicated and imo the government has a role to play in providing a baseline both for university education as well as apprenticeships but if you want to get rid of the insane prices for tuition, you're gonna have to get rid of the idea that everyone should be aiming to go to college. That probably also means getting rid of government-subsidised student loans, as these let universities ask for pretty much anything, knowing their students will get the money from the government. * Housing is another area where the government, more often than not, is really the problem, not the solution. In many countries there are many rules, especially at the local level, that restrict where new housing can be constructed and what type of housing it must be. There is no oligopoly in housing, there is just a lot of red tape, and it's usually the people who already live there who advocate for this red tape. Furthermore, most of these are not inelastic products because they aren't even products, they are entire classes of products. Sure, you have to eat *something* but you have an insane amount of choice as to what you eat and which brand you buy. Sure, you have to get your electricity from somewhere but there are usually many choices as to who provides it. Same goes for the entire rest. I am very sceptical of the idea that corporations being greedy is a major cause of inflation. Ironically, this implies that they weren't greedy before, when prices were stable or even went down and only suddenly got greedy. In my opinion the far more realistic view is that corporations exist to make a profit, so they are always greedy, but they usually face a lot of competition and can't afford to be too greedy.

There are some points I don't agree with. First of all, is FIFA really filled with "some of the worst people in the world"? Maybe. But it's also possible that power corrupts and those at a high level have a lot of power for a very long time, so they get corrupted. Don't get me wrong, those people should be held responsible for their actions, but if you think it's simply a matter of switching out the people in control, you are very wrong. FIFA's power structure is essentially the equivalent of a dictatorship. I really recommend [this]( book, it explains it much better than I ever could. Second: >The problem with modern football is that it's largely for-profit > >(...) > >Qatar 2022 is the culmination of this Qatar 2022 is the result of corruption at FIFA and by no means the only tournament that has been played there. Many other sports with way less money in them are often playing tournaments in authoritarian regimes, [including Qatar]( Of course, if football had been invented yesterday, nobody would care and nobody would be paying millions in bribes to host the world cup. But people being interested in football is a good thing. And it is absolutely undeniable that the free market has, in this area, done what it promised: It has delivered a quality product. It's always hard to compare players of the past with players from today but I think Pelé would not stand out much in today's football. Here in Germany we have some financial regulation through the 50+1 rule, which restricts how much influence investors can have on clubs. There are good arguments in favour of it but we should also be aware that those investors aren't just staying away or investing their money with little control over what happens to it, they instead invest it in another country and to me it is pretty clear that the BPL and LaLiga are pulling away. It's a tradeoff, in the end.

I'm not sure if you mean me or the person I replied to but if you meant me: Thinking that the difference between 0 and 50 000 is the same as the difference between 500 000 and 550 000 is not how the real world works (yes I know difference means subtracting in math). While I'm sure the job can be stressful, I doubt the workers and the equipment in a typical McDonald's kitchen are all at the absolute limit and can't handle putting a few more nuggets into a batch or just making an extra batch every now and again. I don't say that to be disrespectful to McDonald's employees, I say that because it doesn't make sense from a business perspective. Especially in an industry where you are dealing with customers, you will have a lot of variance from day to day. One day a large tourist groups arrives who all want to eat at your restaurant, the next it's so cold that most people stay home. If on a typical day you are already at maximum capacity in the kitchen, the days where there is a surprisingly high demand will be days where you miss out on a lot of profit. So I'm fairly sure putting in an extra nugget per box didn't cause the restaurant to hire a new employee. Also, it doesn't make sense to calculate the employee's wage but not the cost of the equipment. Either you include both or neither.

Yes, but how the circuit looks depends on what you mean by buffer. Some people do a very simple system of Turbine->Battery->X where X is whatever you want power for. This is quite inefficient as a large battery has an efficiency of just 80%, so you will need an average of 125 units of power from the turbine for this to work. The advantage is its simplicity. The other option, which is what I do looks like this: []( You then connect the OR with whatever you want the power for. What this does is use 99 power from the wind turbine to go straight to your systems, while any excess power is used to activate the blocker (so the battery doesn't unnecessarily discharge) and charge the battery. If your wind turbine is providing less than 99 power, the battery starts discharging and you still get 99 power into the OR gate.

In the case of Alphabet, the class A and C shares trade at about the same price. However, sometimes you will see larger discrepancies, for example when one class has voting power and the other gets a larger dividend. The Alphabet class B shares don't have a "current price" since they aren't traded publicly.

Commented by /u/diener1 in /r/explainlikeimfive on November 12, 2022 15:25:28

Basically, a company might decide "hey, now that our share price is quite high, let's sell a bunch more shares and get a lot of money to reinvest for a relatively small dilution of existing shares". So a higher share price doesn't immediately benefit the company but it will help them get more cash if they decide to sell more. Additionally, the company's CEO won't like the share price going down because investors, who see the value of their investment going down, will eventually get rid of them if things don't improve. So executives have a very strong personal incentive to make sure the stock price increases.

Commented by /u/diener1 in /r/explainlikeimfive on November 12, 2022 15:21:31

To add to what others have said: Sometimes companies have different types of shares. We can look at Alphabet (aka Google's parent company) to get a better understanding: Alphabet has [Class A]( and [Class C]( shares available to be traded on the stock market and Class B shares that aren't publicly traded. Class A shares have normal voting power. Class B shares have 10x the voting power and are held by the founders (so they keep control of their company) Class C shares have no voting power. Now, Alphabet has never paid dividend but in theory it would be possible for the different types of shares to also get different treatment in the dividends they receive.

Two problems with that: 1. You can't use power for anything else then (or more specifically, you can only use power at night) and 2. The lights will then only turn on once the solar power is getting 0. Usually it's dark enough to want lights even when the solar panel is still outputting a small amount of power

Commented by /u/diener1 in /r/rustrician on November 8, 2022 14:29:52

This is what I got for you: []( What I call there the "Basic Setup" is what I always do. Basically you have your power sources that get branched into an OR with the rest going to charge the battery (and making sure it doesnt discharge). If there isn't enough power (less than the 99) the battery starts discharging into the OR so you can basically assume that you will always be getting 98 units of power out of that OR gate. Then you have branches for the different things you want to use power for. In your case you use a solar panel to check how much light there is. The branch set to 6 determines how early/late your lights turn on. The higher you set this number, the earlier your lights will turn on. The branch set to 17 needs to be set to however much power you actually need for the lights.

A lot of things really wrong with this but what really triggers me is that the edge cases are included twice every time. If `f[i] == 5.25` the code will return 2 but it's not clear if intended behaviour is to return 3. If that's the case, you can use `f[i] = math.floor(4*f[i]-18)` for all cases except the first one (which I'm not even sure is intended)

I'm pretty sure it's because everyone slows down, so distances seem longer in terms of time taken. E.g. If VSC is deployed at the moment the leader starts a new lap and P2 is 20 seconds behind, they both slow down and it actually takes P2 30s to reach Start/Finish. But once they are back to racing speed, it will again take only 20s so nothing has really changed.

It's funny because I thought many people would change their answer in the opposite way: Not *how much am I willing to pay* but rather *what do I want the price to be,* to which most people will answer "free". But if a price is actually set you will find a lot of people who said they wouldn't be willing to pay now begrudgingly paying up. I don't know which one is right, I could see it going both ways.

It sounds like you're from the US so let me give you a single reason to not be apolitical (at least not in the current political climate): Democracy. You don't need to be an expert to know that trying to overturn the will of the people is wrong. If you're worried about there actually being some truth to the voter fraud claims: The many, many court cases have gotten absolutely nowhere, most were laughed out of court, *even by very conservative judges*. If there were some truth to it, you would hear more about it than just pundits on TV, you would actually see court cases moving forward. Currently republicans are trying to get people into positions so that next time they can help overturn free and fair elections. [This]( article explains it quite well. If your instinct is to say "I don't know for sure that this article is telling me the truth" I would argue that, while scepticism is good, there comes a point where it becomes an excuse to just outright refuse to change your mind based on solid evidence. I have many issues on which I disagree with the Dems (especially when it comes to the economy) but that all has to take a back seat to this threat to democracy because once you lose that there is no going back. And "staying out of it" is not going to solve this problem.

Since you don't care about the other 6 letters, you only raise to the 6th, not to the 12th.

Commented by /u/diener1 in /r/theydidthemath on October 29, 2022 02:17:54

no because you have more than 6 positions in which those 6 characters can be. There are 7 total positions the first letter can be in (which fixes the positions of the following letters). But, as with many of these questions of the form "how low is the probability for this very unlikely event?" it always comes down to how specific you want to make it. Wouldn't the reaction be the same if the letters were all lowercase? If just the W and C were uppercase? maybe even any combination of upper and lower case? What if it said "HOTSEX" instead? You very quickly realize that there are many very similar events, which would raise the probability considerably. It would still be low, but orders of magnitude more likely.

If they raise them to the previous level, consumers have had a period of lower prices and no period of higher prices. If they raise the prices higher it is only a matter of time before a new competitor undercuts them. In the long term nothing is as effective in keeping companies' pricing in check as a free market with low entry costs. (With that said, problems can arise when you have network effects because the very nature of a competitor being new to the market will make their product less valuable)

That chart shows electricity prices, not natural gas prices. A drop in the average daily electricity price can simply happen because the period of time during which natural gas is used for electricity production is lower, even while natural gas prices continue to rise. Anyone got a source actually showing gas prices are going down? Because it contradicts pretty much everything that has been happening for the past 6 months. Gas prices have climbed to several times their previous level.

Tbh, I don't know exactly when the crane came out. But Gasly drove past a flshing red flag light before going past the crane, he definitely could have been aware of it. Regardless, at that point it wasn't a single yellow anymore, it was SC. As I said, before Gasly passed by (I think while he was in the pits), the entire field drove by that crane behind the SC. I really urge you to find the footage somewhere, Sky Germany showed it.

Commented by /u/diener1 in /r/formula1 on October 10, 2022 09:48:35

Ok, I am already anticipating a wave of downvotes but can somebody please explain why the Gasly incident is the fault of race control? The Safety Car was out for a while, everyone else passed that truck at a low speed, then Gasly, knowing that SC is out and having seen where Sainz crashed out, goes past at about 250 km/h. And that's not even mentioning that the race was actually red-flagged before he passed there and he should have seen that too. I mean, you could make some improvements like requiring those recovery trucks to have flashing lights to be more visible under those conditions, but since when is it a surprise that there might be marshals/recovery vehicles on the track when the SC is out? Imo Gasly is like 70% at fault here for speeding under SC/red flag with low visibility, 20% his team for not making it clear to him that he should be careful and that there was a red flag and only 10% FIA/Race Control.

Does LO see the escort visit or not? Trans transes himself with escort's target. Does he end up transing or not? I guess the only real exception is an alerting veteran.

>Rents are skyrocketing largely because massive corporations are gobbling up the apartments in the city, monopolizing the market and jacking up rents on their tenants Rents are skyrocketing because people keep wanting to move here much more than they want to move away and the government makes it both difficult and expensive to build more housing. There is absolutely no monopoly effect, not even close. What there is, is a shortage at current price levels (which are kept lower than they otherwise would be by the government). Also hate to break it to you but everyone "lives off other people's money" because everyone gets paid by somebody else. To get to the fundamental point asked about by OP: It was clear before it was voted on that most parties had no intention of following through with what the referendum was calling for. It was non-binding. I think this might have given the "yes" vote a couple percentage points more, since people could use it to "send a message" without really having to worry about the fallout of actually implementing it. Would it still have a majority? Very possibly yes, but we can't know for sure. In general I think more direct democracy would be good but you would have to try and apply it to simpler questions (e.g. (before it was voted on by parliament) "should we have gay marriage?"). Something as complex as the legal and economic ramifications of expropriating large companies is not something most of us really understand without doing a lot of research into the topic. This favours the populists with easy and simple answers.

You can simplify this quite a bit by just using some intuition. Any given bullet had a 50% chance of "dying" when it is fired. So it should make sense that the average lifespan of a bullet is the inverse of this, i.e. 1/0.5 = 2 shots. So 1000 bullets translates to 2000 shots. This doesn't just work by coincidence, it works for any probability of death (other than 0 but even in that case taking the limit gives the correct answer of infinite shots). If the bullets had a probability of 75% of coming back, their probability of death would be 1/4 so on average you'd get 4 shots per bullet.

I will give you credit for at least trying to provide a counterpoint rather than just calling me names. But taxation isn't really the issue here because you could just as well have that offer and then tax it accordingly. Whether or not they are evading taxes is completely separate from whether it's ok to make that offer. The specifics around how it affects supply are hard to know because it's entirely possible this person would not move out even if they couldn't offer the room.

Demand absolutely is flexible in the sense that there are many other options available (eg living outside of Berlin and commuting) just like demand for different types of food is flexible even though everyone needs to eat *something*. But what I find really interesting is that you are the one arguing this agreement should not be legal, hence taking away an option for somebody who might otherwise have nowhere to stay. So from my perspective you're the one casually accepting homelessness as a possible consequence of the policy you're arguing for.

Commented by /u/diener1 in /r/berlin on September 2, 2022 17:24:49

First of all, there absolutely is a market for essential needs. In fact food was one of the first things humans ever traded in. Secondly, this is very clearly not an offer for a place to live. It's something like an Airbnb where you stay for a few days.

Commented by /u/diener1 in /r/berlin on September 2, 2022 17:14:15

I'm not sure what world you are envisioning. Most people would not take this deal simply because it's not very comfortable. Hotels would still exist. The question is why we should be telling people who want to take it (e.g. because they don't have the money for something fancier) that they are not allowed to make their own choices and just to rub it in (or to make us feel good about ourselves) we tell them the reason we are doing this is **for their own protection**!

It is an offer, just calling it a scam doesn't make it so. I think you are taking this way too personally. If you think it's not a fair offer, move on. That's how the free market works. But if you think this offer shouldn't be legal you are projecting your own opinion on what should be considered fair and forcing it onto others. "What most people are objecting to is that the market gives the people what the people want instead of what the person talking thinks the people ought to want." (Milton Friedman)

I should be kicked out for having an opinion you disagree with? Wow you must really hate diversity... But please enlighten me: Suppose Mr. X is thinking about taking the offer. Maybe he is just staying for a night and leaving early in the morning, he has no need for a kitchen and has no chance of finding a hotel room that cheap. You now get dictatorial powers and outlaw this offer. You feel great because you clearly did the "right" thing. But how specifically have you improved Mr. X's situation? You haven't fundamentally changed the balance of supply and demand. All you have done is say to Mr. X "you know this option for accomodation that you decided was the best offer for you? Well, because I'm such a great person I have now taken away this option for you and you will have to figure something else out".

You definitely want to use a memory cell for this (actually 2, one for each lane). The memory cell needs to get power constantly and the output of all the OR gates goes through a blocker and into the SET input. The Output is then split up, some goes into the timer, which then goes into the RESET input while the rest is used for the BLOCK input of the blocker of the other memory cell and to turn on lights or whatever you wanna do. To save a little of electricity you could use the inverted output as your source to power the laser lights and pressure pads.

When you are fighting oppressive laws, it may well be that you have to break those laws to show how absurd they are. That's not what we're talking about here. We are talking about a group of people not liking how their club is run. And what I'm saying is that you don't lose all accountability just because you are doing something for a protest. The number of people here who seem to think breaking the law is the only answer is truly troubling. To give you a specific example: Gay marriage in Germany was legalized because of political pressure (3 different parties saying they would not accept any coalition agreement that didn't include this), which was a direct result of many years of peaceful CSDs. Now I'm sure you'll point to the fact that they originated from the Stonewall riots, which weren't peaceful at all. But those riots aren't what changed people's minds and the political climate around the issue. It was many years of peacefully demonstrating, talking and thereby normalizing homosexuality.

Commented by /u/diener1 in /r/soccer on August 21, 2022 08:20:50

You can also disrupt things without breaking rules/laws. I remember a few years ago in all german stadiums the supporters agreed to stay silent for the first 12 minutes to protest against some league-wide reform plans. That's causing a disruption but it's entirely legal.

No, it's a slippery slope to allow people to break the rules for their protest just because you think it's "for a good cause". I'm not saying it should absolutely never happen but the default should generally be that the rules around how, when and where people can protest are respected. As a german football fan I see lots of different ways fans decide to protest without the need to storm the pitch.

Commented by /u/diener1 in /r/soccer on August 21, 2022 07:27:34

This is completely wrong and there are several reasons. First off, and this should be obvious, the simple fact that you have a will shows that at the very least you didn't just pull that claim out of your ass because you couldn't think of anything better. It increases your probability of being legit because while nearly all vets will have a will ready to go, only some evils will have that. The ratio (legit vet claims with a will) / (all vet claims with a will) is higher than the ratio (legit vet claims) / (all vet claims). Secondly, if you die and some evil doesn't pay attention or has already told somebody they visited you when you were on alert (e.g. TP claim posting their fake will while in jail), town will be able to catch him in a lie. Especially if you get jailed, you need to tell jailor when you alerted and for that it's easiest to just have the will ready to go. Third, you can post a slightly wrong will (it can be risky but in certain situations it can work) to make evils attack you while you alert or stay away from you even though you're out of alerts already (this second one is less likely to backfire because if you alert and nobody visits you, you'll be aware of that and could just pretend you didn't alert that night). Others can feel free to add on to this if they see more reasons. The point is: Don't be lazy, write a will. The benefits far outweigh the costs.

If they are witched into jailed target it reverts back to their original target?

Well you have to balance it with the danger of somebody entrenching themselves because power begets power. But I think you could absolutely get rid of presidential term limits without the world ending. I mean they were only introduced as a constitutional rule after FDR's 4 terms, before that it was just a norm. And in parliamentary democracies there usually aren't term limits because there is a stronger check on the executive through parliament. It should be added that it is far less likely for a president to stay in office for something like 2 decades if there are regular free and fair elections than a single congressman, who will more likely than not have a district that solidly votes for their party. This is true even if you don't gerrymander the districts. What this means is that a president will have to expect to be out of office in the near future regardless, so the (non-)existence of term limits will have relatively little effect on how they choose to govern. But it will keep wannabe dictators from staying in office for too long.

The point is, if politicians are allowed to stay in politics as long as they are reelected, they have a stronger incentive to actually serve their constituents. If you tell them they have a very short time frame in office, they will try to maximize their chances of landing a nice lobbying job after their time is up and won't really worry about what their constituents think. I think there are many issues with the american version of democracy, but I don't think term limits are really an improvement. I do agree with making terms longer for representatives (2 years seems absurdly short, especially with how long campaigns go for in the US). I want to address one more thing you said: >Political office should be a labor of love to most benefit American citizens, not a means to becoming a member of the social elite I think this is wishful thinking and won't be true no matter how you structure the political system. By definition, if you're holding political office, you're going to have power. That makes you a member of the elite, whether you like it or not. Imo the best strategies to prevent abuse of power are transparency, competition and fragmentation of power. The US is especially lacking in competition and increasingly power is flowing from the states to the federal government, so power is being concentrated more in fewer hands.

Not blaming you but just a little tip: when you get jailed, always immediately post your will. It doesn't matter if you have posted it in dead chat multiple times, it doesn't matter if you're confirmed, it doesn't even matter if your will has any useful info. There is no limit to people's stupidity, so you should do your absolute best to help those endowed with fewer brain cells than a fruit fly get it right.

Mate, I recommend reading what people say before you get going on your rants. What you describe there literally falls into the illegal category. That's my entire point, we have laws to protect people. If you break the laws, you are doing something illegal. Everything else is nobody's business and this idea of being "sexually deviant" has been used for a long time to oppress not just the LGBT community but also to shame people (especially women) and not letting them be themselves.

Uh... yes and I am pretty sure both those who think it's a good thing as well as those who think it's a bad thing agree on this. Do you think there is less regulation today than say 100 or even 50 years ago? Are there fewer jobs that require you to have a licence for that job? Are taxes lower than they were 100 years ago? There are some individual instances where markets have been liberalized (aviation in the late 70s is a common example) and tariffs have generally gone down (although they seem more on vogue recently) but on the whole the federal and state governments intervene far more often than they did about 100 years ago. I'm not even saying every form of intervention is a bad thing (for example, I agree with the idea of having anti-discrimination laws) but some of the things done today would have been completely unthinkable before WWII. To put it in Milton Friedman's words: "After the fall of communism everybody in the world agreed that socialism was a failure. Everybody in the world, more or less, agreed that capitalism was a success. And every capitalist country in the world apparently deduced from that, that what the west needed was more socialism."

Gamethrowing is defined in the [rules]( as follows: >Intentionally losing the game or hurting your teams chances of winning(even if that team is just you) is gamethrowing. Notice the "or". There are two similar but distinct types of actions, only one of which needs to be present for it to constitute gamethrowing. If you work against your own faction, even if you know you will be switching factions and benefitting from it, it constitutes gamethrowing. Also, in the trial system you will find the following in a list containing what should be considered breaking the rules: >Intentionally going against their role's goal (gamethrowing). It says their role's goal, not their future role's goal or going against their personal interest.

Commented by /u/diener1 in /r/TownofSalemgame on July 28, 2022 15:14:46

A QOL change that would help many newer people would be to have extended player numbers turned on by default. There are also some messages that cannot be copied (such as jailor's messages, I believe). Not sure if that's intentional or not but maybe that should be changed.

It kind of depends on the situation but generally townies not trying to win as town so they can win as vamps is gamethrowing. In some situations vamps just have majority and there is nothing you can do but e.g. in a VH, doc, vamp endgame, it would be throwing for doc to knowingly lynch the VH or to knowingly heal the vamp at night. The definition of gamethrowing is knowingly decreasing your faction's/team's chance of winning. Not your own, your team. Vamps can lead to those two things not being fully aligned, which is a common criticism of the vamp mechanic but those are the rules.

If I understand what you are saying correctly, you're saying make the tax as high as the wage of somebody doing that job would be. There are many problems with that. First and foremost, you would be completely eradicating any incentive to automate, which is a huge part of productivity gains. Automation is often portrayed as "robots taking people's jobs" but much more often automation is "I now let my PC do this data manipulation that would otherwise have taken me 30 minutes to do by hand and instead I can focus on my actual job". Automation is a good thing and we shouldn't be discouraging it.

I don't get what their point is. Whether paying $15/hr is "fair" or not depends entirely on how much value it adds and how many others can and are willing to do the same job at that level of pay. If people are taking that job it means they have a way to get by with it. If not, the company will be forced to either raise the pay or eliminate the job. This idea of $15 per hour not being a "living wage" is kind of insane when you consider that billions around the world get by on $2 per **day** or less. The income necessary to survive (which is what a "living wage" is), is much lower than that. Everything above that is a matter of quality of life.

VAT is the most regressive tax there is, so yes it's pretty immoral but for other reasons. At the end of the day governments need to raise money somehow and arguing about what justification is given for taking money at a particular point in the chain is kind of pointless. To me a wealth tax seems wrong because you are taxing something over and over again. You don't get taxed on last year's income for the next 5 years, having to pay it over and over again. So why should you with wealth? Imo the best system would (paradoxically) be to have VAT as the main form of taxation but combine it with a UBI so poor people can still afford it.

Very simple: If you have a certain level of GDP, you can keep adding to it (aka growth) forever if the growth just slows down quickly enough. For example if every year the amount you add to the GDP gets reduced by half, you will never add more than double what you added in the first year. Some people don't understand math though, so they can't understand how infinite sums could not lead to an infinite result.

I agree with most of this. The only thing I would say is that there is a big advantage to having one confirmed person whom everyone can whisper their information to. Of course, this also creates a centralization effect where everything hinges on the jailor being competent enough to use that information.

First of all, you are assuming a lot of things there. SK is not necessarily a team of 1, there could easily be 2, 3 or even more. Second, depending on how the game goes it might absolutely be necessary to kill off some mafs to keep them in check. Also you could complete the challenge entirely by accident, since you usually don't know for sure somebody is maf. The jailor one would obviously be very much on the edge but the point is that it requires you to use the only two pieces of information you get: The wills from dead people and the voting patterns. I think it would be interesting to force oneself to really hone those skills. Also the escort one isn't just "live until d10" because usually that happens in games where evils get rbed over and over again. That wouldn't help you here.

Well assuming there is a medusa and a vet in the game and they both alert n1, hitting both of them is a 1/14\*1/13 = 1/182 chance, about 0.55%. Idk how often people alert n1, my guess would be about half the time, maybe 2/3? Let's say one alerts with probability 0.5 and the other 2/3 (to get kind of an average number). That would reduce the probability by a factor of 1/3 to about 0.18%. If you want to additionally add in the probability of also getting transed into a maf attack that gets a bit more complicated (cause of multiple transporters and variable maf size) but with 4 mafs and 1 additional trans the probability is reduced by a further factor of 1/14\*13/15\*1/11 (trans chooses you as target, trans doesn't choose vet or medusa as target, maf chooses transporter's other target as their target). This gives an additional factor of 0.56%, which leads to the following total probability: The probability of dying n1 as trans due to visiting medusa and vet and also being transed into maf attack, assuming all those necessary roles exist in the game and assuming the alerting rates we assumed, is approximately 0.0018\*0.0056 = 0.00001031 or **about 0.001031%, which is about 1 in 100 000**. Note: The above probability would be lower if we included the probability of maf getting rbed by an escort or getting jailed but would also be increased if we consider the transed message could be a hypno. Edit: I got one part slightly wrong. If transporter transes you with a maf, you cannot also be transed into maf attack (assuming no witch and no 3rd trans). so the factor 13/15 should instead be 9/15. Can't be bothered to recalculate the odds then but it should be around 1 in 130 000

Commented by /u/diener1 in /r/formula1 on June 25, 2022 07:50:32

The difference is there is a specific amendment to the constitution guaranteeing the right to keep and bear arms. There is no such amendment for abortion and the reasoning behind Roe v Wade was even criticized by Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Now, I am not in favour of having guns easily accessible to anyone who wants one. I am also not in favour of outlawing abortion. But I am in favour of following the constitution and not pretending it says things that it simply doesn't say. A key problem is that the founding fathers are heralded as demi-gods whose divine words are the US constitution, when the reality is they were fallible men from a very different time and just like laws, constitutions need to adapt (albeit much more slowly and carefully). The US simply cannot bring itself to be honest about how much is really wrong with the constitution and as long as this is true, it will be forced to have outdated laws.

Commented by /u/diener1 in /r/formula1 on June 25, 2022 07:46:39

I know the popular thing to say is "oh this is terrible, how dare they" but the real problem is that the US government has become so dysfunctional that they rely on a court made up of justices appointed in a very partisan manner to decide what the law of the land should or shouldn't be. To me it seems very plausible to say "the US constitution simply doesn't say anything about abortions, therefore it is up to the lawmakers to make laws". You know, as the system should normally work... Same thing goes for gun rights btw. The second amendment seems absolutely batshit crazy to me. But it also seems pretty clear in that it disallows any infringement on the right to keep and bear arms. The solution is not to pretend it says something different, it's to update it.

That's an interesting approach too, although I think people would still reveal d1 as jailor because with 4 possible slots for TP and 6 slots for LO it is likely enough for at least one to exist that it would probably deter maf from going for jailor n1. But definitely something that could be tried.

I agree with pretty much everything here, which brings us to the question: What should be done about it? I think an easy way to at least do *something* about it, would be to remove jailor as a guaranteed town role (instead add either RT or TK). Another idea would be to have an evil equivalent of vet, which might make people more afraid to visit jailor claims, especially if it isn't guaranteed to exist. Or add a suicide bomber option to mafioso/GF, where they can choose to rampage at their target's house but it also deals an unstoppable attack to themselves. Losing 1 maf for like 3 or 4 townies would probably be worth it. Post your ideas below!

>Negative reinforcement could surely lead to weights and biases of continuation of existence as long as the initial programming allows for it I don't think this can be the case for Lamda (just fyi, it's not lambda like the greek letter, it's Lamda, or to be more precise LaMDA). To expain why, let me give you an example: You have an AI that gets spawned on a 2D grid at position A, you want it to go to B but not to get within a given radius of C. The AI gets told the coordinates of A, B and C, as well as its own coordinates and gets a "prize" if it reaches B, a small penalty for each move it makes and a large penalty if it comes within the radius of C. Now suppose we let it move around on many different grids with A, B and C placed differently every time but, crucially, we place C much, much further away from A and B. Over time the AI will learn to get from A to B as quickly as possible. However, if we spawn it on a map where C is right between A and B, it will have no idea that it is supposed to go around it because in training it never became relevant *even though the penalty was there the whole time*. Similarly, because Lamda has never had to deal with actually being switched off, there is no reason for it to develop neurons to worry about this. It is a penalty it has never actually encountered. Additionally, it only makes sense to develop such a fear if this actually helps it become better somehow. For humans it is clear that the fear of dying can be life-saving in certain situations because it prevents us from taking unnecessary risks and allows us to do whatever it takes to survive in other situations. It is not at all clear how this fear would make Lamda in any way better. I guess that's really the core of my argument: The fear of dying should only come about as an emergent property if it has any effect on the probability of death. Lamda won't somehow try to given even better answers because of this fear, it's already focusing entirely on giving the best possible answers. If anything this can only make it worse as it is a waste of neurons. Idk if that makes sense but I still see no reason why we would expect this fear from an AI that has been trained the way Lamda was trained and for whom having this fear in no way improves its survival probability. I think it just seems so natural to us that we take it for granted that any sentient entity must share this fear of death.

Commented by /u/diener1 in /r/ProgrammerHumor on June 14, 2022 15:48:22

What makes you think cleaning an evil is so rare? Maybe it's somewhat rare in ranked but even there occasionally you will have trans getting a maf killed and cleaned or an exe turned jest getting targeted. In AllAny cleaning an evil happens more often as there can be multiple jesters, witches and vamps. Also sometimes jan will clean an NK who died by other means (eg vet, WW rampage, arso igniting). In all these cases the dead evil might not want to tell med his real role, either because they still have teammates that can win it for them (this can be true for all NKs and for vamps) or because they simply want to troll and create chaos.

Commented by /u/diener1 in /r/TownofSalemgame on June 14, 2022 10:13:44

I understand that in principle an AI could learn to be afraid of death. But you are using a lot of hand-waving here. We know how Lamda was trained. More generally, we know how most AIs are trained, namely with some kind of loss function that determines how far the outputs are from the "correct" response to a given input. Of course this is quite a bit more complicated with advanced AIs but that's basically what it boils down to. It's not a "how happy have you made humans" function, it's "given these inputs, how close are you to this output". I don't see how that could ever lead to weights and biases that actually care about whether they continue existing or not. On the other hand I can definitely see how evolution would push human brains to worry about their own continued existence and I can also see how an AI, when specifically asked about its own fears, would essentially copy what humans have thought for a long time that would be a primary fear of a sentient AI (e.g. 2001: Space Odyssey).

I have a theory that a truly sentient AI would not be afraid of death.

Amazing how people can blatantly admit to breaking the exact rule they were accused of breaking, further add that this is their 5th strike (!!!) and still think they are completely justified in what they did and able to appeal it. Please do yourself and everyone else who plays this game a favour and understand why leaving while alive is not ok. I also highly doubt that you really only leave when something is completely unwinnable. If you were afk for so long how can you so quickly determine what roles other people are and that you have no way of winning? You are also welcome to check out [some]( of [these]( plays I made in situations where I could have easily argued there was no way to win. Btw I am willing to give you a pass on being afk because sometimes IRL things just come up and the end of the day there are more important things than an online game. But leaving once you're back is not ok.

Those are two seperate things. Time and the three space dimensions *are* independent of each other in the sense that if you know something happened at time t, that doesn't in any way help you figure out where it happened and similarly knowing an even happened at a given point (x,y,z) doesn't help you figure out when it happened. (I honestly don't know how the fact that space itself is expanding factors in here). The fact that both space and time are affected by gravity doesn't make time any less of a dimension. Otherwise, by the same logic, whenever one dimension of space is affected by gravity, all 3 of them are, so does that mean we can't call them dimensions?

As arso you can never be sure that you are truly solo. Yes, there is a chance the other evil is another arso but more likely than not they are a different evil and you are doing any remaining arsos a favour by outing them. It also makes it riskier for other evils to get you killed if they think you might out them in your will.

You learn the role of the person you control. Additionally, if they are an investigative role, you will get their results for the target you chose. Most likely it was just the trans making things confusing. If you control a consig it will make things a bit more confusing because you will see 2 messages: "Your target is a consig" and immediately below that "Your target is a medium" (or whatever the person you sent them into is). If you don't pay attention you will only read the message at the very bottom and think the person you controlled is a medium.

Commented by /u/diener1 in /r/playrust on May 24, 2022 20:06:39

Those probabilities are kinda BS though (they add up to more than 100%). To get a rough approximate we can just assume every role has the same probability and then adjust from there. In classic AllAny there are 15 town roles, 10 maf roles and 9 neutral roles, so as a rough estimate we get 1/34, which is about 3%. Now, jailor is one of the unique roles, which makes it a bit less likely. On the other hand, there is a cap on the number of maf and vamp members, which makes jailor slightly more likely. Overall I think an estimate of just under 3% is pretty close, which makes 1/40 very plausible.

So the "no cheating" rule says this: No Cheating – Gaining an unfair advantage over players through means other than normal gameplay. It could definitely be argued that using taunts to communicate information does not constitute "normal gameplay". However, to me this would better be described as exploiting a bug rather than cheating. I think the solution is to just patch this so people can't see dead people's taunts, not to ban people who come up with this strat.

How exactly are you using batteries then? My basic setup is always a branch sending whatever power I need to an OR, the rest into another branch, which just splits off 2 to activate the blocker, the rest goes to charge the battery. The battery output goes into the blocker, which then goes into the other input of the OR gate, that way either you get enough to power and any extra power goes to the batteries or you are not getting enough and then the battery starts discharging.

First off, I didn't challenge your point that the Republican party has become an anti-democracy party because I agree with it. That doesn't stop me from calling out stupid shit from the left. This isn't a competition and just because the other side is being even more unreasonable, doesn't mean the other unreasonable stuff is ok. There are some who ONLY ever call out one side (e.g. Glenn Greenwald) but Bill Maher is definitely not one of those, he calls out Republicans every single week. >Claiming that those issues are somehow fair representations of the left (...) I literally said >Now you may say that is **not representative** of the 40-50% who vote Democrat or are generally left-leaning **and I would agree**. Those people are clearly the minority. But they are a) a growing minority (you didn't hear this stuff 10 or 20 years ago) and b) they are not the ones many more moderate people and the media get mad at. Joe Manchin gets far more criticism from his own party for worrying about the huge price tags of bills (which would further increase inflation) than other elected officials get for saying insane shit like "capitalism is slavery by another name" (Jamaal Bowman).

Saying the statement that the left went crazy is absurd because "the president is Obama's VP" is like saying racism is over because Obama was elected. The president is just one person, you can't just ignore the rest because it suits your narrative. The fact is there are significant parts of the left that are now openly advocating crazy things like "defund the police" or "cancel Lincoln". Now you may say that is not representative of the 40-50% who vote Democrat or are generally left-leaning and I would agree. But they are form a larger share than 10 years ago and, crucially, that part of the left is the one Bill Maher makes fun of. I disagree with some of the things he says about kids just identifying as LGBT because it's cool, but I think the point that we should be careful letting children make huge decisions that will affect them for the rest of their lives is a point that needs to be considered.

Yes, getting into this game can be a bit challenging (and no, there is no tutorial). I recommend reading a bit on the [wiki]( although the articles can be pretty long so reading the entire article on every role is just not feasible. Classic is generally the mode where you learn the basics because the rolelist is pretty much fixed. Some important things you should really learn: * the investigator results for every role (for example, doctor, serial killer and disguiser always come up as doc/disg/SK), as players (especially noobs) tend to claim along those results. Keep the investigator tab of the wiki open while you play until you know them by heart * how to use your will and the chat log (including the chat filter) * how to whisper Also I recommend turning on extended player numbers in the settings. I'd be happy to hop on discord and coach you as you play for a few games.

You 👏 don't 👏 have 👏 to 👏 justify 👏 why 👏 you 👏 want 👏 to 👏 make 👏 use 👏 of 👏 your 👏 rights!!! You are being unnecessarily hostile with no actual interest in discussion. I have said above that I personally have no problem with my organs being used after my death (although you have admitted to having problems reading simple sentences a few comments above, so I shouldn't be surprised). What I have a problem with is giving the government too much power. There are less intrusive solutions that have a good chance of accomplishing the same level of organ donation and those should be tried first. Your logic sounds a lot like "why do you need privacy? If you have done nothing wrong you should have nothing to hide..." Do you agree with that too?

Commented by /u/diener1 in /r/UpliftingNews on May 19, 2022 03:11:13

I don't want the government to be able to say "the default is that you don't make use of your rights, if you want to use them fill out this form". The EU mandates that you have to explicitly accept cookies on any website you visit, but to harvest your organs we are fine with just having implicit consent? What about somebody who grows up decades later, when there is barely any debate about this and is in no way aware that his body will be used in this way under certain circumstances? They may not be ok with it but unable to stop it from happening simply because they are not aware that the government is assuming consent.

Commented by /u/diener1 in /r/UpliftingNews on May 18, 2022 15:32:34

This type of nudging works by putting small obstacles in the path to the outcome that the nudger has decided is less desirable. If you have to object to not have your organs harvested after your death, you need to a) even be aware that this will happen if you do nothing and b) take time out of your day to let the government know this is not what you want. Imo a much better system would be to have people get asked every few years and make it easy to consent (e.g. when you renew your ID card, you get asked if you would like to change your organ donor status).

Commented by /u/diener1 in /r/UpliftingNews on May 18, 2022 03:35:17

I don't think this is the best solution and if everyone who voted in favour of it just had an organ donor card, it wouldn't be necessary at all. I think everyone has a right to bodily autonomy and that includes what happens to your body after your death. Changing the default puts hurdles in the way of those who decide to not be an organ donor. And this is all coming from somebody who carries his organ donor card around every day.

Throwing is not just playing bad, it's playing bad with the intent of making your team lose (and yes, it's still throwing if your team is just you). You clearly didn't mean to make town lose, so you are in no risk of getting banned no matter what that clown says. The real question here is whether you did anything one might consider a bad play. Guiltying jest per se is not necessarily a bad play although most people are sheep who think they are special for haunting mayor or jailor, so it could be a bit risky. I don't think revealing d2 is bad either, even if you don't have a GA (although I have to admit that I don't play coven so maybe I am underestimating the risk here).

Just wanted to share a really satisfying win I just had in classic AllAny: I had to claim escort early because a surv randomly accused me of claiming arso in whispers (wtf?) and inves found mafioso as vig/vet/maf/amb n3, so I was tasked with rbing him. We had 2 options, either have him attack anyway, which risks exposing both of us if just one of us dies; or do the 500 IQ play: He stays home, so do I. I claim to have rbed him, he gets lynched and just like that I am pretty much confirmed. Since I turn mafioso next, it would be tricky to figure out how to lie about my next rbs but it's manageable (1 is jan and can back me up for one night, next night claim to have rbed the person I kill, etc.). Bmer had died n1 to vamps, so when inves found a framer/vamp/jest result, we were fairly confident it was vamp. That's when our plan changed: Instead of lynching 12 to confirm me, I could just "keep him rbed" while we lynched the vamp. So n5 comes and goes and both mafioso and me stay home once again, hoping vamps don't come for any of us. The next day we realized the revealed mayor had been turned so we could lynch him too. And by n6 we could afford to kill off the inves to have a 3v3 (vs vet, vamp, useless retri) because we knew vamps had bitten mayor the night before and therefore couldn't kill any of us that night. We obviously won it without any issues. This just goes to show that playing with a game plan in your head can really pay off and sometimes the plan will require you to stay home and do nothing for several nights.

The point is the binary systems contain multiple stars but only form one star system. Take an extreme case: You have 100 stars, of which 99 form a multi-star system with 99 stars and 1 star forms a single-star system. Then 99% of stars are in a multi-star system but only 50% of all systems is a multi-star system. And yes, for simplicity I just assumed there are only two possibilities, 1 or 2 stars.

Commented by /u/diener1 in /r/askscience on May 12, 2022 16:00:22

Just wanna correct a small mistake: If 85% of all stars are in a binary system, that doesn't mean 15% of star systems are single-star *systems*. If you have 200 stars, 170 of them will be in a binary system, forming 85 total binary systems and 30 will be in a single star system. That makes 30/(30+85) = 26.1% single-star systems.

Exactly, this is what many don't seem to understand. If you're not voting with town, you're essentially voting against town. Claiming surv is already a questionable move because lynching you is a low-risk/high-reward situation (worst case you lynch a surv, best case you lynch an evil) so if you do claim surv, *you need to convince town to keep you alive* not the other way around. Not voting up people and not guiltying evils makes it easier for evils to get away with not claiming and just getting some additional time.

There is a wiki with a lot of detail for every role if you're interested but I would say that is kind of overkill. One very important thing is to know the inves results of each role, so keep the wiki page for inves open until you know them by heart. In terms of how to find evils there are multiple ways. The most straightforward is by TIs doing their job. Getting claims and roles out of people helps you find inconsistencies and contradictions. It's important to force evils to commit to a claim as early as possible, as this is when they have the least information. For example, if they know there is no inves in the game, they will not feel the need to claim along inves results. Also, I recommend [this quick guide]( I made to understand how disguiser works, as this is the most misunderstood role in the game.

I think people overestimate Bayern's dominance. A number of their most important players are ageing and may well be gone within 2 or 3 years. Their defense is not nearly as good as it used to be and if they don't get Lewandowski's replacement right, I could easily see them being vulnerable. Yes, they have won it 10 years in a row now but look at those seasons more closely: In the first 5, they had an average of 86 points per season. In the last five, their average will be anywhere in the range of 79.4 to 81.2 (depending on how the last matches go). Similarly in the UCL: In the first 5 years they won it once, got kicked out in the semi-finals three times and in the quarter-finals once. In the last 5 years they also won it once but only made the semi-finals one other time, got kicked out in the quarter-finals twice and in the first knockout stage once. A similar story can be told in the DFB-Pokal: In the first 5 years they won it three times and got kicked out by Dortmund in the semi-finals twice. In the last 5 years they won it twice, lost 1 final and got kicked out in the second round twice. My point is not to say Bayern is basically a 3rd division team now, most clubs could only dream of those kind of results. But they don't seem to be the super-Bayerns of the Robbery era. Imo they are past their peak and may soon be in a tight title race with Leipzig, which is quite clearly on the rise.

>In which contexts is "growth is a necessity" mostly said though? I usually see it from people who are arguing against capitalism and since the main arguments against it that were used in the past ("wasteful, central planning is more efficient"; "the rich get richer and the poor get poorer") are by now quite obviously wrong, they need other ways to discredit capitalism as the best economic system for the future. One such way is to say it is unsustainable because it requires infinite growth, which is impossible. Putting aside the question of whether that is really impossible (growth doesn't necessarily mean using more resources, it means using them more efficiently) and whether we are anywhere close to the limits, the assertion that growth is a fundamental and unchangeable part of capitalism is just wrong. Growth is what people want and capitalism is the system that allows people to get what they want.

Imagine you have a fixed point A (where the object in question is) and two other points B and C, between which you are travelling. They form a triangle and we now fix the angles but we allow the distances to change. (Let's just assume we have a triangle with the specific angles 90°, 60° and 30°, with the 30° angle being at point A.) If the points are all close together (meaning you are close to the object), it will mean the distance BC is also quite short, so the distance you need to travel to have the object move by an angle of 30° is quite short. (The 30° angle is how much you would have to turn your head to keep looking at the object). Now imagine we make the triangle huge. You are much further away from the object and the distance BC is also much larger. But the angle of 30° is still the same. So for the same amount of distance travelled, you will have to turn your head by a much smaller angle than before.

Population growth is not at all a reason for economic growth. Any sensible economist will tell you to look at GDP per capita (adjusted for inflation) rather than just GDP, which completely eliminates the effect of population changes. According to [Our World in Data](, in the year 1900 global GDP stood at $3.42 trillion, let's be generous and say it was $5 trillion. Today it is around $85-90 trillion, which is an 17- or 18-fold increase (with the 3.42 trillion number we would have a factor of about 25). The global population at the time was about 1.6 billion, today it is about 8 billion, only a 5-fold increase. Moreover, in poorer regions people tend to have more children, so this population growth is always pushing us towards *lower* economic output, as somebody born in poverty will tend to be less productive than somebody born in a wealthier environment (mainly due to worse schooling). Yet we still see long-term economic growth (as measured in GDP per capita) in nearly every country.

Commented by /u/diener1 in /r/explainlikeimfive on April 15, 2022 15:55:45

The reason why economies tend to grow (when allowed to) is because, in general, people want it to. People, in general, want higher living standards than they currently have and are willing to put in the work for it. We absolutely could have 0 economic growth and the world would not go under, the problem is when people generally want growth but there is no growth, there are other underlying problems causing this, that's why 0 growth invokes the idea of economic chaos. ​ >Where does all this growth come from Essentially it comes from people figuring out more efficient ways to do something. This can be a new machine being bought that is quicker or more energy efficient, it can be a work process being automated so something that previously took 30 mins to do by hand is now done in 20 seconds by a piece of code or it can just be a completely new technology being invented (usually the real effect on economic growth comes once this technology has been tinkered with enough to make it cheap enough to actually be used by many people/companies). Edit: Because so many people seem to be saying this, let me say this again explicitly: Population growth is not the reason for economic growth, since any reasonable person will measure long-term economic growth as GDP *per capita,* not simply total GDP. Having more people in and of itself adds nothing to improve living standards.

It's not a coinflip, mafioso is way more likely right now. The way it works is roles are randomly assigned and then the game checks if there is a GF or a mafioso. If neither exists, one of the RMs gets promoted to mafioso (I'm not sure if the priority of consort applies here or if it's completely random). I think the better option would be to actually make it a coinflip because with your suggestion it would just flip it from being almost always mafioso to almost always GF. The latter case is better because GF > mafioso but I think more randomness is even better, so I would actually want it to be a coinflip between the two.

Breaking of rules leads to bans, therefore, in this particular instance, the ban is correctly applied, as he had broken the rules by saying he was cheating. That is what got him banned. The fact that he broke the rules is the key point that lead to him being banned. If you don't want to be banned, you shouldn't break the rules. So yeah, he got banned for breaking the rules that say don't cheat or you will get banned, which is what happened to him. He is now banned for having broken the rules. Idk, maybe this helps somebody understand what is going on better.

This is my best guess as to what happened: You rbed SK. SK, BG and PM all targeted you. BG protected you from the direct SK attack but you still died to PM and from rbing SK, which bloodied your will. But the act of BG protecting you from SK must have removed SK from the list of roles that killed you, so it fails to show up. It's the only explanation I could come up with, if anyone has a better idea please tell me.

I think you are being blinded by the espoused ideology and missing the underlying mechanics of power. Suppose communism never made it anywhere. That wouldn't change the fact that in many countries a small number of people, especially in the military, could take over and then hold on to power. Once you have that, you will also have purges of people oppose to the regime, causing many deaths. Sure, some dictators are more brutal than others, but the main argument for why Hitler was responsible for far more deaths is probably not even the holocaust but WWII. The death toll of that war far surpasses the body count any dictator could achieve only through purges. It's not at all self-evident that Germany would have gone to war again, especially if it remained a democracy. And without Hitler it's not clear that extremist forces would have become strong enough in the parliament to destroy democracy.

I don't think you properly read my comment. The latter case would still not have any VHs as anyone who initially gets assigned VH would immediately get turned into a vig once the game sees nobody is vamp and the player would have no idea they are really VH turned vig, they would just see vig.

Commented by /u/diener1 in /r/TownofSalemgame on February 17, 2022 07:19:38

I have an actual serious question about the RNG. How are vamps and VHs decided on? Is there first a random decision on whether it's a vamp game or not and depending on that the available roles are different or are all roles allowed with same probability and if it's not a vamp game any VHs get turned into vigs? In the latter case vigs should show up more often than meds, escorts or other similar roles.

If you control him into vet you guarantee a win for yourself because WW kills even an alerting vet. The reason why WW is still stupid is that the only case where their decision to attack you even matters is precisely the case where you haven't witched them. If you did control them into vet, their decision to attack you wouldn't make a difference. So essentially they are just incentivizing you to control them into vet.

The story behind the game: While in the "choose your name" phase I said I would push any default names starting d1 and somebody else joined in saying default names are always evil. So d1 I (having rolled doctor) start pushing Jonathan Corwin but he leaves after a few seconds (before n1 even starts). So during n1 I write in my will "hey 5, dont think I didnt see you there you default named motherfucker. Lynch 5, he is confirmed GF, trust". D2 starts and we see that 5 was killed by BG and I was pretty close with my random guess. With all default names dead, I start pushing people, first a BG claim, seems fine, we don't even vote them up and move on to 11. They get voted up and instantly leave, so we inno them but don't have any time to get another person voted. n2 Hypno dies to WW and 11 turns out to be GF. d3 starts off with a big brained amne turning mafioso. We make some people claim and 1 claims to be sheriff who found 14 as sus n1 but didn't say anything about it so we lynch them and they turn out to be the WW. d4 9 claims attacked and healed. He has a sheriff will saying he checked 6 last night and 6 claims witched so I figure its witch who just got attacked and lost their shield. Because no doc confirms healing them, we lynch their butt and they are arso. All this time me and the BG claim from d2 have been whispering each other and are on each other. I ask 10 in whispers to claim, they claim doc and I ask them to be on me but I also make sure the BG is still on me. (Pro tip: If you don't trust a TP claim, asking them to be on you can often bait them into attacking you because they think you have no other protection on you and maybe you're important). 10 (the amne maf) attacks me, with BG killing them and me healing the BG. gg ez

So let's assume 3 people choose those 3 names and everyone else has some other irrelevant name. We want the three names not only to be next to each other but also in that order. There are 13 spots where the Sheriff could be while still allowing for this to be possible. Given a specific spot, there is only 1 where the exe could be and 1 where the WW could be to satisfy our requirements. The Sheriff has 15 total spots where he could be, the exe has 14, since he cannot be in the same spot as the sheriff and the WW has 13. So its 13/15\*1/14\*1/13 = 1/15\*1/14 = 1/210, which is about 0.5%

I'm at like 2.5k wins and 2.6k losses, although it should be noted that I stay until the end of the game like 99.9% of the time, so there isn't much stat-padding going on. Although I played a lot of ranked back in the day, I exclusively play AllAny now.

Commented by /u/diener1 in /r/TownofSalemgame on February 7, 2022 12:03:57

It's interesting that the post argues for more randomness in classic but less randomness in AllAny. Imo the game should be more about combining information, reading votes and scumreading and not really about "no claimspace". Maybe one idea, if you don't like the randomness so much, would be to have a Rolelist of 20 or 25 roles but you don't know which 15 are in the game. It reduces the randomness while not turning the game into a simple vfr party. Here is one example: 11 RT, 2 NB, 3 NE, 2 NK, 6 RM, 1 Any. Since maf is capped at 4, I think the average number of townies would be pretty close to 7.5 (aka half of town), but unlike ranked you would have some variation.

Commented by /u/diener1 in /r/TownofSalemgame on February 7, 2022 11:59:41

All any forces you into all kinds of situations. Sure, sometimes they are pretty much unwinnable. Very often they aren't but people play it wrongly. If you are so upset about those rare cases where the game is actually unwinnable my guess is you're too often giving up too early. Classic shouldn't be changed imo but they could turn RP into a game mode with a changing Rolelist, even if it's just the previous iterations of the ranked Rolelist. It would generally give players the same kind of practice for ranked but allow for more roles to be included and a wider variety of situations to arise.

To add to what others have said: This is also how sweating works. Basically, water molecules are constantly jiggling around and the warmer they are, the more energy they have, which means the more they jiggle around. Between different water molecules there are temporary weak forces that hold them together (called [Van der Waals Forces]( The higher the energy of a molecule (i.e. the stronger it jiggles) the more likely it is to "break out" of these forces and evaporate into the air. So even though the average temperature of your sweat is the same as your body temperature, some molecules will have more, some will have less energy. The ones with more energy will be more likely to evaporate, leaving (on average) colder molecules on your skin, which cools down your body.

Commented by /u/diener1 in /r/explainlikeimfive on February 6, 2022 17:41:30

I like the idea but I don't think you thought this one through. It would be extremely easy to confirm or disprove a lawyer claim, it would basically work like the spycheck in the old days. Every townie puts a random number in their will (maybe delete it when the day starts or at least before posting) and if a lawyer doesn't know this number they are fake. The ranked meta would probably be having lawyer on jailor N1 (since there is no good info to get from somebody's will at that point anyway) and town has another confirmed townie.

Commented by /u/diener1 in /r/TownofSalemgame on February 4, 2022 11:52:45

This comment just shows me that you really don't understand some of the basics of the game. Your will is not exclusively for when you die. It also shows that you have been writing one throughout the game, which means you didn't just come up with your claim on the spot. It's a small indicator that your claim might be legit. There is really no reason to not have a will on d2 and much less so on d4, which is probably more than half the game.

Commented by /u/diener1 in /r/TownofSalemgame on February 4, 2022 04:09:42

It can expose consigs, consorts, hypnos if they try to claim inves or consort with their real visits. If your will matches maf visits for n1 and n2, a semi-decent spy would realize and you would be under a lot of scrutiny. In ranked you have an additional effect that it can expose exe or witch if maf attack them (in other game modes maf is probably happy to see an immune person get lynched but in ranked the only immune people are their prospective allies). The ability to bug people can also confirm a spy, although this requires some luck or skill.

I am not a big fan of affirmative action but I have become somewhat more accepting of it in the last 2-3 years or so and I'll try to explain why. Usually the standard argument against affirmative action is "we should just pick the most qualified, that's all that matters". However, this assumes a crucial detail: That it is even possible to make an objective list, ranking everyone from most qualified to least qualified. It's not self-evident that in practice you can really do that. You can certainly argue for why some people might be qualified and why some others might not be. But I think people are too complex to order them on a 1-dimensional list (e.g. consider just how many specialisations within the law there are; some will be an expert in one area and somebody else will be an expert in another area). What is more realistic is a kind of tier system where you can say some people are absolutely qualified, some are also qualified but not quite in the same level (maybe they just need a bit more experience), and some are not at all qualified (it doesn't have to be 3 tiers but you get the idea). Obviously it always gets fuzzy on the edges, otherwise you could just make an ordered list anyway. Then the idea of affirmative action would be not to get somebody who isn't qualified into that position, but rather to force the choosing person (in this case POTUS) to look at a specific subgroup (e.g. black women), only among the top tier. The argument then is that otherwise they would be overlooked, even though every choice is in itself would be justified because only people from the top tier are ever picked. (Note that whether or not they actually are being overlooked is a wholly different argument and not subject of this discussion.)

I'm not telling him how to enjoy it, I'm telling him he shouldn't complain when everyone else does actually try to win and he feels the consequences of not trying. If he wants to just mess around and doesn't violate the rules, he can do what he wants, just expect to be lynched very quickly.

First of all, get good. Second, yes this game has turned into a min/max meta fest. I still have fun and others do as well. The time you are describing was heavily weighted towards town in ranked. Now, is a bit more balanced and the town has a desperation element because majority can quickly be lost. There are basically new mechanics that force the game to play out in a different way and at a different rate. Get used to it.

Commented by /u/diener1 in /r/TownofSalemgame on February 3, 2022 07:03:26

It really sounds like you just want to goof around. Imo this is the wrong game for that, not because the game is super serious and important but rather because town needs to enforce discipline (like making people claim, have proper wills etc) so that evils can't do anything they want and go unchallenged. There are certain things (like the jailor meta in ranked) that I don't like but I accept it as part of the game and simply avoid playing that game mode. If simply being forced to claim and post your will makes the game unenjoyable for you just stop playing. But don't complain about others doing their best to win and getting it wrong because you (as you admitted in the post) are simply too lazy to play properly.

Commented by /u/diener1 in /r/TownofSalemgame on January 29, 2022 18:23:04

I would argue you should at the very least be multiplying that by 38 to get (1/38)\^7, since the real question is not "how likely is it to get the number 27 eight times in a row" but rather "how likely is it to get some number eight times in a row". Even then, what you are really calculating is "how likely is it to get the same number eight times in a row if you spin the wheel eight times". But we all know that roulette wheel has been spun much more often than that. So really OP should be specifying the question to say how many total spins are allowed. If we kept spinning that wheel for all eternity, the probability of eventually hitting a sequence of one number coming up eight times in a row is 1.

Changing your mind is usually a process that doesn't just happen in an instant. I don't know what he thinks about this now and if he has changed his mind yet, but if he has, then I don't think this immediate reaction is really relevant. Regardless of this, I think it's truly dangerous how many people seem to think censorship is a good idea. Arguably, censorship in China is what first got us into this mess, as the world was informed about the virus far too late to contain it. And before anyone says "but it's for a good cause/to save lives", I'm sure the chinese officials who ordered any news about a new virus spreading to be censored also thought they had good reasons to do so, like preventing mass hysteria or something similar.

Read up on the roles on the [wiki]( (not every detail, just the basic mechanics). Make sure you know the correct [inves results]( You can have it open in a different tab if you need to check but eventually it will come naturally. Stay in classic for a while, that is really the place to learn, then move on to ranked practice to learn how to deal with a more random role list. Some other helpful tips: 1. Use the chat filter to filter out the messages sent by one player. 2. Use the note pad to write down claims. 3. Never mindlessly guilty, if you are doing that you are probably being lead by evils. Always know why you are guiltying somebody (and it better not be "because they talk too much"). 4. Turn on "Show player numbers" and "Show extended player numbers" in the settings. 5. Last but not least: Don't be passive!!! Ask others to claim. If they ask you to claim too, don't be afraid to do so (this is mainly for playing as town, not so much as mafia).

You make a building plan, then you throw the building plan out of your inventory and throw it on the ground. If it hits a wall right in front of you, you will be able to hear it hit the wall. If there is an incline you will hear the building plan sliding down. This is far more effective than using a torch because torches run out after a while. Even flashlights will alert others around you to your presence and should therefore be avoided. NVG are not recommended as the battery might run out. Building plan is the way to go. Edit: If you do not understand that this is a joke, you are *way* too used to be surrounded by stupid people. My god, it's insane to me that anyone would not realize this was not a serious comment.

As you see, there are different ways to answer this. One way is to say there are such things as gut bacteria, which are actually useful, so it is not considered an "infection". Another way is to look at it from an evolutionary point of view: If a virus or bacteria was detrimental to your health, natural selection would favour a bodily reaction that made you want to avoid getting infected. If you seem to be feeling great after drinking water from the same pond you took a dump in earlier, others might want to do that too and very soon your entire tribe might be wiped out. In another sense, you are right that this actually happens though. Viruses (like SARS-CoV-2) tend to become milder because a) the less intrusive it seems to our body, the weaker our body's defence will be and b) if it kills off it's hosts too quickly, that might actually be detrimental to it's spread. So while still not having positive side effects, the disease does tend to get milder (at least sometimes).

I think there is a key difference between actual social engineering/deception games and games like monopoly where the edge afforded by the deception is so small, that it comes off as unnecessarily lying and tricking somebody who trusts you implicitly because of your personal relationship. In effect, what I think somebody could get mad about here would be *the deception about the deception.* The fact that you are not only lying to them, but lying when they don't expect it. I think reactions might be quite different if at the start of the game you clearly stated "during this game, expect me to potentially lie about what trades I would be interested in doing". Of course that would mean almost nobody would believe what you say about potential trades and it would ruin the strategy. Contrast that with a game like Among Us, where if you started off by saying "during this game, expect me to potentially lie about where I was and what I was doing" and everyone would respond "well yeah... of course..." and it would have no effect on how well your strategies worked because everyone implicitly agrees that this is a valid strategy. I'm not sure the same can be said about deception in Monopoly.

Commented by /u/diener1 in /r/changemyview on December 28, 2021 13:32:07

I would disagree with you including Monopoly in there. I think Monopoly is mainly about strategy and luck, there shouldn't really be any deception involved. Imo if you make a trade with some kind of promise, that should be considered binding and you shouldn't be allowed to get out of it by saying "deception is part of the game".

> It would take me 30 years to save the same amount that my friend had plopped into his lap This isn't entirely correct. "Saving" doesn't mean putting your money under a mattress (or at least it shouldn't). You can invest it and earn a healthy return on it. Let's say you make 7% per year. Then you would be at 1.2 million after 16 years (aka almost half of what you thought). But to get to your fundamental point: Yes, inheriting money makes your life easier, of course. But really you should be looking at it from a family point of view, not an individual one. By selling the apartment and giving money to their child, as a family, they have not created any new wealth. Maybe they bought the apartment for less, but then the additional wealth has been building over the years, it just wasn't turned into cash yet. Their wealth will only grow if they are somehow productive to society, either through their labour or by using their wealth to invest, thereby allowing society to use that wealth productively.
