good morning to all the very smart engineers over at google
cw math, I guess
mornin, this is my mom’s older dog charlie. he’s mellow
morning, it's launch day for a thing my team built, wish us luck
Richard Stallman? Yes,
had a dream last night that I bought a midi controller at a thrift store, good morning
good morning, last night I continued watching Canada’s Worst Driver, descending further into the Andrew Younghusband Cinematic Universe
this is the season where one of the nominees has an acquired brain injury, and they’re treating the subject with remarkable sensitivity. for television, anyway.
wait, does dressing up as a tin of sardines make Andrew a scalie?
good morning, Siri doesn’t know how to pluralize temperature degrees because it’s written by damn Americans and their damn foolish Fahrenheit
good morning to late capitalism, babey
good morning, instead of a weird image, today you get a song: https://open.spotify.com/track/5vRmAKxjZfiGhTwWUijSAV?si=5vTf1R3aQSiky9Lrb_fAxg
good morning; we put Dave's cat bed on the book case and he loves it
good morning, Canada got a new food guide and it includes hydration, so make sure you're hydrated!
it also includes tips like "cook more often", mindful eating, and awareness of food advertising
I feel like that's a cool step forward. It'd be more cool of ol' JT would just reform food advertising.
oh, but for market forces!
here is your government-mandated recipe for healthy kraft dinner: https://www.canada.ca/en/health-canada/services/canada-food-guide/tips-healthy-eating/meal-planning-cooking-healthy-choices/recipes/mac-cheese-with-veggie-twist.html
god damn nanny state, at it again!
good morning, my umbrella broke on my walk to work : \
good morning from Dave
@ashfurrow I'm having a really big think over this.
@trickster it’s a puzzler 🤔🤔🤔
@ashfurrow I just checked this and it's true. Brackets change everything.
@ashfurrow technically the minus sign is a multiplication with -1, therefore it could make sense that it has lower precedence than exponentiation.
Wolfram Alfa gives the same result (even for -3^2), and they are math guys.
@ashfurrow negative numbers don't exist. 😉
@ashfurrow Isn't that the negative of 3^2, not (-3^2)?
@danyeaw that’s correct
It's a unary '-' minus, yielding 0-3^2
@erAck “-3” isn’t an operation, it’s a number. And the ambiguity of the natural speech “negative three squared” is highlighted by the difference of “(negative three) squared” vs “negative (three squared)” - I would argue the first is _more_ correct.
This gave me a good laugh, thanks Ash!
@ashfurrow your shipping some sort of CI then?
@ashfurrow A transport system for migrants fleeing war torn areas?
@ashfurrow Y U HATING ON COSTA RICA??
@bremner BUT °C MEANS “DEGREES COSTA (RICA)”
@ashfurrow I guess they forgot about “?:”. Silly programmers.
@ashfurrow I wonder if the formatting code is converting a number from °F but using the original number for the plural selection.
@ashfurrow I keep thinking that one day we're going to spot buildings that are designed to remind us of legos...
@ashfurrow That's cute.
@ashfurrow I think I'll continue with the tried-and-true method of "buying a box of Kraft Dinner from Target" ;o)
(I'm in shape. Round's a shape.)
@ashfurrow Open box, pour into water. Boil until tolerable. Devour orange substance. Return to other tasks.
@ashfurrow but where are the instructions for making it in my instant pot! Trudeau just half assing thing left and right
@tapi I’m curious to hear what Jagmeet Singh has to say on this important issue.
@ashfurrow good morning, please consider living in a drier climate to avoid these issues in the future
@ashfurrow LOL 😂
@ashfurrow Love the description on this one! I laughed so hard LOL.
