  1. They probably masturbate for the same (or similar) reasons we do.
  2. Understandable, seeing how you didn't understand it
  3. Super beings who are able to create bubble universes using 'stuff' they extract from the sea of infinity. Joking aside, who knows? I certainly don't.
  4. They don't, but does that really matter in a thread like this?
  5. Square wheels that work actually exist: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=SQUARE+SHARK+WHEELS They're a kind of skateboard wheel. The link above links to some youtube search results. Check it out, I'm not joking.
  6. Conduct the research necessary to rule the universe for all of eternity.
  7. My question makes perfect sense. 1. The XOR and & thing are a simple mistake. Should Be XOR and AND. 2. The booleans are bitwise operators (what else could they be?). 3. The hash variable is clearly not 32 bits wide (why would I expect to get anything other than zero if I shift out all the bits?). Basically I tried to write the following WORKING line of code in a more general format: Int64 hash = ((2860486313 * (3367900313 * x ^ 4093082899 * y)) >> 32) & 255; Yes, there is a reason for my question. I don't have a maths background and don't know how to work out the period (if you will) of this hash function. And no, I haven't been using any cannabis products. Don't see how this is relevant anyway. Next time, don't reply if you don't understand the question. In this case it's very obvious that you have no clue. Anyway, the hash function is flawed and I've replaced it with this one that seems to do the job: Int64 hash = ((6082394749206781697 * (1732050807568877293 * i ^ 8650415921358664919 * j ^ 3842148274728412483)) >> 48) & 255;
  8. I have this hash function: hash = ((2860486313 * (3367900313 * x XOR 4093082899 * y)) RIGHTSHIFT 32) & 255 Anyone know if this will produce repeating sequences when the inputs are whole positive numbers starting at 0 and going up to 2^32? An example would be x and y starting at 0. X is incremented by 1 until x becomes 2^32, at this point x is reset to 0 and y is increased by 1. This is repeated until y is 2^32.
  9. People believe in gods because they believe there's more to reality than science shows us. While there certainly may be more, I still don't get why it HAS TO BE gods.
  10. I don't know what happens, and I'm not going to worry about it.
  11. Yes. It's something. Like we say a glass is empty while there is still air inside.
  12. There used to be a limited grace period for Windows 10, but now it's unlimited and you can use it for as long as you want without activating it.
  13. No, it's not theft, because Microsoft lets you use it that way. On purpose.
  14. Actually, Windows 10 is now free to use. The only thing you can't do is use the desktop theme customization features. Visual Studio Community Edition 2017 is free and not crippled (although it lacks some features the expensive paid version have).
  15. How the hell did they manage to make the editor worse?
  16. I couldn't even finish the first episode.
  17. Probably not. Yes, but nothing meaning something is silly. Good question. It could just be a pop science thing.
  18. Oh, you meant the definition of absolute nothingness? That's easy: Absence of anything. I'm not criticizing the concept of a universe from nothing, but rather the ridiculous use of the word nothing. If you mean nothing, use nothing. If you mean something, don't use nothing. It couldn't be any easier, I do criticize the absurd notion of something from absolute nothingness. I've asked before what scientists think this, and I've made it clear that there's as difference between scientific nothing and absolute nothingness.
  19. No, it's not. You're accusing me of using his own definition, while I'm not. After googling, this is less than clear to me. On the surface there seems to be no universally agreed on definition. I didn't look into it very deeply, so it's likely I missed something. One thing is very clear, however, and that is that nothing isn't nothing.
  20. No, I'm not doing that. I'm saying something can't come from nothing, where nothing just means nothing. Some scientists say that something comes from nothing, where nothing means something. I'm not the one using his own definition here, scientists are doing that. While that's better than redefining the word nothing, does it capture the whole meaning?
