/b/413283 There's a bit of a breeze heading towards Ireland
Interesting how every time there's a minor storm heading our way, the media goes into a frenzy. This time, Ireland is in the path of a storm the likes of which are only seen once every several decades, with the rest of the UK still potentially seeing very severe gales, and it barely gets a mention in the news.

Not much of a big deal really. The forecasts earlier in the week were worse, but as it's got closer it's weakened a little. It's going to be a typical autumn storm for most of the country.
Parts of the South and most of the Welsh coast will get a pounding though, with some heavy rain, a spring tide and fairly high winds.

Have they actually published anything yet or is it just more clickbait? I've been out of uni for a while and haven't kept up with the literature.

One was a white van down Bank Street who couldn't be bothered to wait whilst I was in the middle of a three point turn so he decided to mount the kerb as I was reversing and I only narrowly avoided hitting him.

The other two occasions, an old woman trying to cut behind me during a three point turn and tonight someone ignoring my indicators and reverse lights by trying to squeeze between my car and the driveway, happened on my street.

It's never happened anywhere else I've lived. Then again people around here are a bit cuntish about letting out indicating buses and things like that.

2/3. Same old woman?

And again, I've not seen the bus driver thing. I let buses out when they indicate.

I also never give a chance to old people (especially old women), rich people with fancy cars (although I do like to give people with banged up cars a chance), Asians, black women, van drivers, anyone with an English or Welsh flag, French car drivers, BMW drivers, people with loud music on, buses (unless it is a bus I take), anyone with a hardhat, people who shop at Lidl or Waitrose, people with their headlights dipped up, people taking too long to do a fucking 3-point turn in an empty street (fucking cunts should not be allowed to drive), mopeds, men below the age of 30, people wearing suits, people who vape, cars with foreign license plates (especially French plates) and many more I can't be asked to list.

If you knew what day of the year it was and time of night you could definitely do it.

The time of night you could probably make some sort of estimate of based on the position of the moon after knowing the time of year. The time of year you could make a 'good enough' estimate based on which stars are present in the sky for a broad estimate and then use the phase of the moon to calculate a more exact date.

I have really no idea how precise any of this navigation would be based on eyeballing, probably good enough to get you across an ocean and in the direction of the right port.

If you had precision measuring tools and a sophisticated computerized star chart you could probably calculate your exact position on the earth.

It was not really known how to calculate longitude accurately until around the 18th century. The major way people determined it was by using latitude, speed and direction to estimate it using the ships vectors of movement against a known position.

I agree but the question was about ability to determine your position with no other points of reference.

In 2010 I was er, heavily invested in the Bitcoin community. I had hundreds of bitcoins. I lost them all. Right now I feel like an absolute cunt. How do I get over this sort of regret? I can't stop thinking about it. My life right now could do with even a small fortune, let alone the millions of pounds I could have had. I just needed somewhere to vent really. Fuck.

There are many stories like this, and the best argument I've heard as consolation is this:

Keeping your bitcoins would never have been a single decision to keep them until they hit 5 grand each. It would take many separate decisions over the past 7 years when they hit £1 each, then £10, then £100 and so on.

Can you honestly say that in 2012 you would have foreseen the growth that continued for the following 5 years, and continued holding instead of cashing out then? Chances are you would have taken a much smaller windfall at some earlier point in time because it would have been the reasonable decision at that time.

Regretting your loss now is not so drastically different from everyone else who never invested but wishes that they had, because hindsight is 20/20.

To expand on this slightly - would you be willing to purchase £50 worth of Bitcoins now and hold onto them for another decade, on the basis that worldwide adoption could again multiply that investment a thousandfold or more?

If you're not willing to do it now, what makes you think you would have made a different decision in 2012?

There are a lot of things I'd do differently if I had a time machine. There are things that made me feel shit with regret for a good while. It's fine, it's only a smouldering core of hatred buried deep under layers of pretending to be happy. You're still gonaa make many more mistakes like that, but at least there are other decisions you made correctly. Like spending the money on drugs instead. Good man, money is evil anyway.

Exactly this - just like any other forms of investment, it is difficult to cash them out when they become losing, and even more difficult to just sit tight and hold on to them when you're winning. I've done quite a bit of stock investing - life generally gets in the way. There are very few people who can afford to invest in something and then sit back for seven years without touching it. You (mostly) need to be already very rich to get into that position.

It's the old problem of not taking the long-term view when investing.

Many people think that short-term trading is a way to make considerable profits the easy way. And it seems reasonable enough, given that a) stocks can climb and fall dramatically within short spaces of time, and b) thousands of professional traders make their employers loads of money that way every day.

But the problem is that you as a retail investor have no way on Earth of predicting stock prices with any degree of recurring accuracy, and that you neither have the means to move millions in and out of stocks to influence their price action nor the inside information to know what big players will drive which stock up or down in the near future.

There are retail investors who have managed to make a fortune in the stock market, and most important of all, keep it. But they invariably bought stocks at times when they were down on their fundamentals and with a view to holding a stock for several years if necessary.

Traders just do not make money long-term. Trading tends to result in piss poor performance compared to buy-and-hold. But there are still enough people every day who "blow up" and lose their whole trading account because they think they know better.

I have made huge profits and similarly large losses with stock investments. I've got over 15 years experience. My noteworthy profits have almost without exception been through long-term investing, while almost all my losses were from trading. And I have witnessed enough people on trading web forums crash and burn because they thought they were the new Warren Buffett. When ironically, he is one of the most outspoken opponents of short-term trading.

I can't be the only one here to have stumbled upon this utter gem.

Without a doubt, this has become my favourite adult cartoon and I can't wait for the next season.

Dark, clever, brilliantly amusing. Really fucking dark in places.

There are episodes on YT but some of these have had the voices altered to avoid automatic take downs I guess?

Here's a link to the first where a TV box has been used instead; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=68IH4u-t7Zc

It is difficult to write intelligent characters , but no more difficult than not writing something derivative. Laziness bleeds into creativity because doing better is hard work and requires you to fight for integrity so creatives pick the path of least resistance and good enough, becomes good enough. That doesn't mean they can't do better just that people aren't willing to try.

>It is difficult to write intelligent characters
Is it, though? An intelligent character can make a split-second decision that a less intelligent person would take weeks of thought or research to realise was the better thing to do. Luckily for writers, they can take weeks to think about it because that's how fiction works.

It's incredibly easy to write intelligent characters. You only need to write about them succeeding at mentally taxing tasks, and/or impressing or bamboozling other characters with their mental prowess. You're talking about an author proving their intelligence by writing things that will impress an intelligent audience. That's totally different and also likely impossible, because you can only write in such a way as to flatter the reader's intelligence whether they are intelligent or not. The intelligent ones know this, and therefore never know if they're really intelligent or just being flattered.

Intelligent people often think more slowly, but come to better conclusions. They think in entirely different ways to averagely intelligent people and have access to a different set of tools. Stamina is a vital part of intelligence - really smart people have an almost endless capacity for deep thought. It's very difficult to represent deep and nuanced thinking on screen and damned near impossible if you're not a deep and nuanced thinker yourself.

Elon Musk springs to mind. The engineers who have worked with him at Tesla and SpaceX have commented that there's only one truly exceptional thing about Musk - he asks incredibly good questions. He's quick on the uptake and has a very good capacity for technical knowledge, but his defining trait is his ability to ask a single question about a topic that forces an expert to re-evaluate the received wisdom. He patiently listens to someone explain the state of the art, then unerringly hones in on the part of their explanation that doesn't quite add up. What matters isn't that Musk is smart, but that he makes everyone around him smarter.

I've been lucky enough to work with some incredibly smart people - ACM Turing winners, MacArthur grant recipients, Fellows of the Royal Society. To a man, they've struck me as quiet, humble and generous. They're often remarkably ordinary in any context other than their field of expertise. They play in terrible rock bands and get winded at five-a-side, they lose pub quizzes and forget where they put their car keys. I don't see geniuses represented in fiction who look anything like the bona-fide geniuses I've met.

I think it's something to do with detective novels. It's boring to watch or read about someone doing actual research, but the way a detective novel is structured you can create quite a strong narrative while dropping lots of little clues that the viewer/reader can look out for and try to assemble themselves (which is part of the draw, even if the writers cheat and give the detective information the viewer doesn't have, they can find it educational) all leading up to the reveal.
>Of course! He was shot with the rifle that was hanging on the wall at the start!
House is a detective show, Lie to me is a detective show, Bull is a detective show, but so many other things tweak the pattern a little further. They keep repeating the same formula in slightly different contexts.

Sorry, I read it but for some reason my brain disregarded it as bollocks and went straight to the next post. I blame the formatting of /iq/, everything looks like a shitpost even if it's perfectly factual.

This is the kind of thing that'd send me right into a full blown acid flashback / psychotic break. My family would end up chasing me right round the M25 shaking boxes of clonazepam and seroquel at me while I spout gibberish about the "simulation running on low power, it's all falling apart, even the US President looks orange. the fuck.".

Evening, lads.

What's the best way to learn to play guitar? I'm guessing these days it's YouTube tutorials or something like that.

When starting out, it's extremely easy to pick up bad habits, and much harder to break them. The most obvious would be to only strum downwards with the plectrum. I imagine most youtube beginner tutorials will advise against something as obvious as that, and there are plenty of self-taught guitarists out there who are exceptional musicians and highly competent, but getting lessons is a good idea if you can afford it and can find one you click with reasonably well. Most importantly, any half-decent teacher will pick up on what you're doing wrong, and correct you on the spot, which a youtube video can't do. They'll also set you "homework" of some kind, which forces you to pick it up and actually play it, playing things you probably wouldn't have otherwise bothered with but which nevertheless teach important concepts/techniques, and you might find you like some of that music.

Also, lessons aren't cheap, and if you're paying with your own cash there's a significant incentive to make the most of them. Most lads I've known have picked up a guitar at some point, learned a few tunes from tabs, and then given up. Learning an instrument like guitar involves climbing a learning curve like a rock face, and you need some serious motivation to scale it. Having a teacher can be a powerful motivating factor, and you will very likely learn more, and more quickly, than left to your own devices.

Failing that, if you've got a mate who's a decent guitarist, bribe them with some beer every once in a while and get them to show you the ropes. Again, they should notice if you're venturing down a bad path with your technique.

Play with others if you can.

I've been playing guitar for almost 15 years and I've lately had the same question running through my mind. I was never particularly dedicated to practicing or learning, so my technical ability is decent but nothing special, and I have very minimal theory knowledge.

I figure the best way to get back on the path is to start out as if I'm a beginner and work up from there. I've heard good things about Justin Guitar (linked to above) and the Learn and Master Guitar series (easily 'obtainable').

As a complete beginner, a teacher is definitely going to accelerate your progress quicker than self-teaching will, but make sure you try out a few and find someone who will set you goals and teach you the fundamentals in a logical and progressive manner. A lot of teachers will just teach you songs and jam with you, which is fun, but it won't take you very far.

/nom/12365 Sweet Chestnuts
I've never tried collecting these and roasting them and eating them until last night. I enjoyed it! So much free, delicious food out there. The only thing was that I found getting the good stuff out of the shells a little annoying. Is there a better way of preparing them that makes them easier to eat? The guy at the park whose kids gave me their chestnuts told me that boiling them for fifteen minutes and then frying them is a good way to cook them. I might try that next, I'll post how I get along with it.

Can you believe black berries are still about? Not in bloom obviously, but a few stragglers here and there. I was going to eat one today but decided against it when I tried to pick it and it slopped off the stalk.

Conkers can paralyse you. You want sweet, not horse chestnuts. Sweet chestnuts come in the impossibly spiky pods.

Yes exactly. All the CMDrs on Reddit seem to love it but I've never had a real problem with using the controller, so I suspect I don't really need it.

If you're married, it's an acceptably boring purchase. If you're single, it reeks of loneliness. I don't make the rules.

I don't you need that kind of edge unless you're PvPing, and even then I have doubts it's worthwhile. Maybe with VR.

If I had a VR set I don't care how nerdy it is, I'd get a proper chair and twin flight stick, all that jazz. people would call me sad but i'd simply tell them fuck you i live in a spaceship.

Agreed. I'm planning on doing that if/when Star Citizen becomes the promised land.

To be fair, Elite is slowly but surely getting better. Either way I'm going to become a space hermit eventually.

I just wanted an excuse to post her. So then I thought-

i.e. images you couldn't think to categorise in another thread but really want more people to see.
