Crap! / yes, it's a maths thread.

A fish tank initially has 4kg of salt dissolved in 100 litres of water. It is decided that this concentration is too high for saltwater fish to be kept, and so fresh water is mixed in at 10 litres per minut, while 10 litres of the mixture is removed per minute.

If x kg/L is the concentration of the saltwater solution in the tank t seconds after the fresh water is first added, the differential equation for x would be:

A. 10dx/dt + x = 0
B. dx/dt -10x = 0
C. 100dx/dt + x = 0
D. dx/dt - 100x = 0
E. 100dx/dt - x = 0

That perfect score isn't looking likely now, Nolan. D:
I've done plenty of these types of questions for when the variable in question is mass, but trying to get my head around how it would change with concentration is proving more difficult.

How is that the area under the curve for a normal distribution is equal to one when it approaches both positive and negative infinity? Why wouldn't it be an infinite area?

So yeah maybe I would be able to deal with the fact that it wasn't an infinite area, but then there's other curves that approach infinity which DO have an infinite area, eg. area from 0 -> pi/2 for tan(x). So, what determines whether or not the area will be infinite or not for a given curve that asymptotes? I imagine it's something to do with how fast it's approaching it but I couldn't work it out.

i'm counting on you, mark

A 60kg mass hits a spring at 12.0m.s-1. The spring has a force constant 1250 N.m-1. Assume g=10m.s-2. What is the maximum compression, and what is the net force on the mass at this time?

EDIT: Made it slightly clearer.

Serious Discussion! / Revenge and rehabilitation.
« on: January 03, 2011, 07:00:22 am »
disclaimer these questions are hypothetical to the point of being absurd

If a person murders a million people, and then regrets it immediately afterwards and there is a one hundred percent chance they will never commit any other crime again, and this is known by everyone with absolute certainty, should they go to prison?

What about if they don't regret it, but there's still a one hundred percent chance they will never commit another crime?

What if it would make everyone else in the world feel happy and safe if this one person went to jail? Should this person's rights be sacrificed just to make everyone happy? Or is it only acceptable if they've already sacrificed their rights through murder? Or not acceptable at all?

Crap! / Old Voting/Guy Awards

Indeed I am. :3

Here they all are!
2009 Guy Awards Voting Topic
2009 Guy Awards!
The 2010 Guy Awards _~_~_ Nominations
The 2010 Guy Awards _~_~_ Voting
<3 ~ 2010 Guy Awards Voting ~ <3
<3 ~ THE 2010 GUY AWARDS ~ <3

I think that's all of them.
It seems that if you delete an entire thread it stays together, and to undelete it all you have to do is move it out of the hidden board.

Crap! / Someone on IRC is claiming to be Reviewer2!

Serious Discussion! / Guns
« on: October 29, 2010, 08:29:50 pm »
So, I don't know if you guys know but it is meant to be pretty difficult to get a gun in Australia. You have to wait a long time for a license, and even then you need to have a valid reason for owning one. Self defense is not considered a valid reason.

Up until fairly recently, I had always considered this a good thing. Most people around here seem to consider it a good thing too (out of the few I asked). Australia has a low rate of gun violence - certainly much lower than America - and seemingly less violence overall (YEAH I TRUST WIKIPEDIA OKAY). Then I read a thread on another forum and my views changed. I'd highly recommend reading that thread by the way; they're all much better at arguing than me, even if the posts tend to turn into massive essays.

Anyway. Views shifted, now I think I'm pretty much against gun control. How do you guys feel?

Crap! / I respect your wishes, SL.

So, I get up, have a shower, eat my breakfast. Turn on my computer, find out I have a PM.

I read it once, don't really understand what it means. Formatting was confusing as fuck. Read it a few more times, and eventually figure out that Ybbald tricked cantavanda into posting a leekspin topic. The HI HI HI topic and the Pokota one confirms this. Immediately give Ybbald a permanent ban, with the plan that I'll remove it in a few days or something after talking to the other mods.

Go to school, have shitty day, come home. Oh what's that? Ybbald's ban evading? Excellent®.
Oh wait, no he's not. Well fuck that. It seems that SL unbanned him because he didn't know why he was banned in the first place. Wait what? Great. Time for a quick rant then!

Regarding cantavanda's ban: there's no question that he should be banned, but not so much for posting leekspin as for being a fucking moron who can't even check a link they're posting. But honestly, we already knew he was a fucking moron, we were only keeping him around because he was entertaining.

More interestingly though, is Ybbald's ban:
Quote from: translation party thing
I am no longer banned for tricking the new person we all hate into doing something illegal so he would be kicked out of our forum so we could all be happy without him

Congrats, you demonstrated that you COMPLETELY MISSED THE GODDAMN POINT. That's not why I banned you. If you'd just asked us to, we probably would have banned cantavanda; he had already proved himself to be a complete idiot over and over, we didn't need any more evidence of it.

The real reason that I banned you Ybbald is that, not only did were you intentionally trying to set someone up to get banned for something they didn't deserve, you tried to keep this a secret from anyone who actually had the power to do anything about it. Not only were you being an asshole, you were being a cowardly asshole.

I can't say with certainty how I would have reacted if you hadn't tried to hide it - I definitely would have found it a whole lot more funny, because honestly, it was funny. But why the fuck did you try to get him banned when we already have tonnes of other perfectly good reasons for getting him banned?

Really though, I honestly don't have much else to say about this. The fact that you think you're in the right is honestly pretty baffling, and I can't say much else without more input on it.


EDIT: Oh one more thing to add:

To all the tl;dr people: This post is specifically directed at you. Especially you Ybbald. So fucking read it.

So, just as Silver predicted, I'm here to give my two cents on this whole "we're turning into /b/" thing.
I'd actually decided against posting something about this, because I thought Silver summed up the issue pretty well, and that the matter was at rest now.

However, it came up again (in a PM), so clearly there's still a problem here.

And, as for the solution that was suggested in the PM (no, I'm not going to talk about what it is in this post), in my opinion, it is absolutely horrible idea that would most likely tear the forum apart. And I really don't want to see that happen.

Anyway, let's get started, shall we?


Well, I'll start off by responding to something that I would have responded to already if I'd been there at the time: one post in particular made by Ybbald in that topic. The post in question was... ugh I can't even think of how to describe it. Here it is:

Look, some people don't like the shit in crap. But here's the deal: all those guys who hate it, they are the minority here. Person wise and post-count wise. They post the least in crap and bitch about it half the time. Meanwhile, the rest of us enjoy a good time in crap. Crap is meant for crap. Thus the title. Thus the relaxed rules. Thus the General board for non-crappiness. This is what it is for. This is what the majority enjoy in it. This is what the majority like.
Yule, dsk, kwiftee, have no right to tell us what crap should be like because Koppis by himself posts here more than them all put together. Not to mention me, evan, liquid, and mat.

Honestly, this is ridiculous, and I don't understand how you could possibly think this is true. It really makes me think that you must be just trolling us.

First off, WHAT THE FUCK did you just tell a mod what he could and could not do? What were you thinking? Seriously? I mean, I've gone against the entire forum (including dsk) on some of my rants before, like back when I told you all to stop picking on JCM, or when I told you all to stop picking on JCM... again. But I would NEVER tell him that his opinion was worthless. I mean really, that's just fucking stupid.

Second, no your opinion is not worth more than mine, regardless of if I'm in the minority. Yes, you have more than 12 times the amount of posts I have, but, as I have said several times before, I CARE about what I post. I try to make sure that everything I post contributes to the forum, and isn't just "lol" or "i lost". Don't you fucking dare ignore my input just because I don't post every useless fucking thing that comes to my head.

Third, OKAY I CAN'T EMPHASIZE THIS ENOUGH: YOU SERIOUSLY THOUGHT you mattered more than dsk what the fuck what the fuuuuuck

Fourth, the whole "crap is meant for crap" thing. That's not what I'm arguing about. What I'm saying is that it WASN'T ALWAYS LIKE THIS. Sure, Crap! has always been... crappier than the rest of the forum, but it wasn't always as bad as it is currently. It really is just a watered down /b/ nowadays. I'd be fine with the occasional post like that in Crap! but it's all over the fucking board.

Lastly, just as an aside, another stupid post:
If someone goes to a restaurant for lunch everyday, they'll give his opinions more weight than someone who comes in every couple of weeks.

Yeah, but they don't give his opinions more weight than SOMEONE WHO WORKS AT THE FUCKING RESTAURANT.

seriously what the fuck were you thinking


So, in case you hadn't figured it out from the first part of the post, yes I think the forum is becoming more /b/like, and yes I really want it to go back to the way it was.

Just in case you don't know (and I assume you'd be able to guess), I absolutely loathe /b/. Even if you ignore all the obvious moral problems with the place, /b/ is just so fucking... lazy. It takes no effort to be funny on /b/. It just involves posting the same unoriginal memes over and over and over. No one ever makes a valid contribution there, which is the EXACT OPPOSITE of everything I stand for here.
Plus, it just inherently frustrates me, since you can't reason with them in the same way that I reason with you guys. D:<

I desperately don't want this place to become like that.

Quote from: GODDAMNIT NO
well that's the way we like it or we wouldn't do it

Yeah, well it's not the way I like it. I think it is, just as Rad said, "terrible what has become of what was formerly a great place to chat with intelligent people." And it's true, this place was once so, so much better.

There was a solution suggested in the PM, but as I said, I'm extremely opposed. I honestly think the best solution at this point would be for the mods to actually start enforcing the rules. I don't really want to see any of the regulars getting banned, but honestly, without any threat of punishment, this place has become pretty terrible.


Regardless of how much I've said the forum is terrible in this post, I really do love this place. I love it enough to waste my evening writing a huge rant just to try and make this place as good as I can.

So please. Don't let it get any worse.

<3, Kwiftee.

FUCK i was supposed to do geography homework tonight. eh, screw it, i'm going to bed
