It's going to take some real work to get this guy some money again from investors.  Going the smaller, social game route is likely a better option to get his outfit off its feet.  Hopefully he just designs and stays the hell away from managing this time.

You don't think he has any investors? Surely he isn't funding the entire venture out of pocket, unless it's three dudes living on pizza hut and box chardonnay sitting on rented white plastic "outdoor" furniture with a 6 month renewable lease on a former massage parlor stinking of kimchee in a suburban mini-mall outsourcing all their actual development to rentacoder.com.

The image tickles me pink. I hope Abashi is one of the other two guys. I picture him staring at the peeling wall in that banal hellhole, 100 yard stare from vacant expressionless doll-eyes, round face shining like a donut glazed with fluorescent orange pepperoni grease, downloading tranny porn right in the open on 2PM wednesday afternoon, rhythmically tensing and untensing his thighs. Tense, untense. So close, so close. Tense, untense. Nobody notices, as Brad posts mindless self-important drivel to his blog in a haze made from equal parts percoset, lorazepam, and delusions of grandeur.

Then, in comes a Wolf that walks as a Man.

(I don't know what that last part signifies, but it seemed like it fit so I kept it. Be wary.)

Sam the genius struck business model gold. McQuaid and co. should drop all pretence and start an actual massage parlour. Most social media is built on prostitution anyway, so why not embrace the basics. On a slow day they could take turns giving each other squeezers.

But younger internet users seem to think GMail is cool and the sign of really "getting" the interweb. I don't get them. I'm sure they think Hotmail is uncool though.

They also think forums are uncool (but comments are cool).

I don't see how he derives the equation in the signature from the two preceding statements.

On the other hand I think he'd be an excellent candidate for one of the vacancies at Bradville.

The factoring isn't shown. hardcore + no hardcore = life + no life
hardcore + no hardcore; factor hardcore out and you get hardcore(1+no)  Much like x + xy becomes x(1 + y), etc
Of course, the opposite of hardcore is casual or, at best "not hardcore."  Raping English to force funny isn't cool.

No(t) is a not an operand. It's a unary operator. Or in boolean logic, apple + no apple is not mathematically 0 apples, it's 1 apple + (a grape maybe)

Or,

apple = (not pear)
pear = (not apple)

not

apple = banana * pear
pear = banana * apple

We don't know what "not apple" is, but it's not the same as "not pear" unless we have a relation to show that apple = pear. Which in this case would be to start with the relation hardcore = life.

Edit: Added quote. Also: We should also define the total set, which can be anything in this case, but even if we make it binary (hardcore, life) we've just proven that a = not b, b = not a, or a = a, b = b (compare 1 = not 0, which is true.)

Did you change your mind because you misunderstood or because you couldn't be bothered? Because I read it and you have a point; it's just that in natural language, "not" means "not a subset of" rather than "negation of." For example, in natural language, "an almond is a nut" and "nut is not an almond" are both true - unless there are only two possible sets, when sub/supersets become meaningless. I should have made that clear, true.

It isn't like this thread will amount to much else than mockery of McQuaid anyway. tongue

In short, I didn't want to start down the path of trying to determine if proof via exhaustive elimination is really a worthwhile way to describe negation.  I wasn't really thinking of discussing it from a set theory point of view.

But if you want to keep going then:

Uh, for apple -> not pear to be a usable distinction you are doing a lot of implicitly stating the things that make apples apples and the things that make pears pears and then comparing them.

I mean, there are a lot of things apples aren't but in the 'fuzzy' sense you could make an argument that apples are close enough to pears for apple = pear to be mostly true (i.e. the set of things that are in apple and the set of things that are in pear are nearly identical).  Apples are much further from airplanes than they are from pears.
