How anyone denies the holocaust is beyond me and furthermore how anyone can be an American nazi literally makes my head hurt.

Yet apparently millions of people are. The term Nazi has lost all gravitas it once had. It's been used so flippantly for so long to mean "someone I disagree with", that a term not too long ago that would have someone seriously questioning their character now has the same weight and meaning as playground insults. It's not hard to see how someone could become a holocaust denier, when the group associated with such vile atrocities is no longer a bugaboo but a blasé reference used so freely, so frequently, and applied so incorrectly so as to make it seem as if there was never anything to fear at all.

Those are also the people that vote for them. We have to face the reality that when you let this many people reproduce, half the population are going to be poorly parented, poorly educated, and lack decency and critical thinking.

I mean if we're going this far, let's just make it an easy cutoff. No one who hasn't been assessed with a genius level IQ is able to vote, hold office, or reproduce. Deal?

That's what I thought. You have nothing & now you have to try & twist words around that are clearly legible to anyone & everyone. Take your 2 facts & get the fuck out of here.

Why do you hate facts? What did they ever do to you?

The fact is that 20 thin skinned nazis cost DC millions of dollars in security & commercial damage. You'd rather ignore that fact.

I am not aware that at this current event anyone other than counter-protestors caused property damage or assaulted anyone.

By default, anyone applying for and receiving a permit for demonstration is afforded security. It would be fascist of me to deny people their legal rights. Do you support the arbitrary removal of rights as well? That’s quite fascist of you.

The left? WTF man. How about "while America triumphs"?

see more

I would not call the rampant destruction of property and injury to civilians as "counter-protest" an American triumph. You don't get to simultaneously try to play hero and turn around to hit someone randomly with a bike lock. This was simply two groups of sad, pathetic, violent, and reprehensible people. Nothing more.

You're lumping all counter-protesters into one negative group. The MAJORITY of them went out and home peacefully.

We hold everyone responsible for the actions of the minority though, so why would this be any different?

I haven't felt attacked at all nor is my ego damaged. Again, I was quite happy to accept and agree with your clarification because I thought it was correct but, given that fact, I have been a bit bemused by your behavior since then, which has only confirmed my original assumption that you are a disagreeable asshat. So stop with the passive aggressive r/iamverysmart platitudes because it's not helping your case.

Once again I apologize that my educational information has damaged your psyche to such a degree you feel the need to lob insults. I hope that in the future you are able to rise above this and excel in life with knowledge that you are a smart, capable, and educated individual. I’m in your corner friend.

Leo's sounds are so indistinct, are you joking? Bruh. Whitemane's sound exactly like what her disc priest playstyle should be. There's an audible pop when you're using Inquisition each time it hits, the twang from Scarlet Aegis sounds amazing, Reckoning perfectly syncs up with the animation, Lash has a nice thud to it. All in all I think they sync up great with the character design and the skill timings. It's not quite as loud as some other abilities, sure, but as a priest main in WoW all of her abilities including the sounds are familiar to me. I could see it being not enough if you're used to some of the more aggressive sounding characters that have big explosions and more bombastic events, but I personally find those kind of annoying.

My updating command for Python on Mac is:

pip3 freeze --local | grep -v '^\-e' | cut -d = -f 1 | xargs -n1 pip3 install -U

and when I forgot to freeze my Python 3.5 setup before upgrading to 3.6:

$(brew --cellar)/python3/3.5.2_2/bin/python3 -m pip freeze

That's not friendly at all.

You've never heard of a virtual environment? LOL

A flaky workaround for a flaky package system.

We had easy_install then pip then conda, the Python2/3 mess, the virtualenv.

Did you try to deploy Python in production? You basically need Docker to keep your sanity.

I'm guessing you're new to Python. It's incredibly easy to export virtual environments and setup in production. Even without that, properly tracking your requirements you can easily setup on any production server with minimal effort while implementing CI/CD. This seems more like a lack of professional knowledge on your end rather than a systemic flaw in a language implementation. I was once new as well, you'll learn over time.

You have a BS, talk someone into giving you a chance at an MS/PhD in BioStats or something.

Nice work dude! This is the true essence of DS, you're fighting the good fight.

You're more qualified than most of the ML kids who just throw data at algorithms blindly. Machine learning is a tool you can use to assist you in the process of science, it is not science itself and this is being watered down because it's such a low barrier to entry. Anyone can use an off the shelf algorithm, throw data at it, and read the output.

A data scientist is someone who will do the research, write the annotated bibliography, deliver the EDA, review review review, start applying methods that have been proven in the past, apply new methods that they want to try out to view the results, build the presentation, give the presentation, and lastly but most certainly not least perform the experiment again to ensure reproducibility.

If you don't ensure reproducibility, you did not follow the scientific method and therefore are only fooling yourself when referring to yourself as a scientist.

If we had a real American president, they'd be able to stop this with a phone call.

Who knows? The world doesn’t want us leading or policing any longer. Let things happen and have someone else deal with it.

To clarify, we should be doing something, but also let’s see how the fares without us. Maybe they will grow.

You'll find some comments from some people on the left saying all kinds of shit about Conservatives. Some of it is ugly and offensive and divisive. Some people will post almost nothing but angry rants about how evil conservatives are, full of strawmen and generalizations.

But going through our recent history, you'll never find another President from either party who talked like this. Hell - it's tough to find another mainstream politician with any kind of success who talked like this.

Scroll through Trump's twitter feed, on any day. Try to find any public statements he's made that are aimed at the entire country - that are extolling us to come together. Try to find any statement about anyone who's isn't "on his side" politically which isn't a vicious attack. Try to find any indication that he's interested in representing the entire country, not just the people who voted for him.

I think the above comment sums it up pretty damn well

Whataboutism at its finest.

? How?? I just... how is that possibly whataboutism?

Am I not exactly responding to the two things being discussed here - firstly the claim that Trump will

... publicly lambast anybody who did not vote for him daily...


...proudly announce that more than half of the country should not get representation because they are a Democrat or a liberal...

vs the claim that

There isn't a single thread in this sub that doesn't have someone saying ....

I mean - we can disagree and stuff but how is this possibly whataboutism?

You’re detracting from the original argument by saying “but what about Trump”. I don’t disagree with your points.

I agree that change is slow and should be so people can acclimate.

But then I think about how change is not fast enough for the people in need of change. Climate change not being addressed fast enough so that people do not die from it.

Or people's lives being ruined because they are thrown in jail for a stupid drug.

It is easy to say we should make slow change when you are in a position of privilege.

Aren’t they being thrown in jail because they violated a federal law? Let’s not shift blame, the normal is not someone physically forcing an illegal substance on to you. They still made that decision knowing the potential risks and consequences. They’re choosing to ruin their life.

They are being thrown in jail so they don't kill themselves via drug use robbing them of their freedom instead of treating them for their issue that they have.

Same can be said for alcoholics, difference is that they aren't thrown in jail, but the drug still ruins their lives and I would argue that they do not choose to ruin their life, the lack of treatment is ruining their life so open your fucking eyes

see more

Aren't they choosing to risk their freedoms, rather than not? Personal responsibility for character flaws and a lack of critical thinking and proper judgment should not always be lain at the feet of the general populace who are smart enough to not try and kill themselves.

Sweet whataboutism referencing alcohol though, which is already legal but can land you in jail for public drunkenness, DUI, and a host of other charges. The drug is not ruining their life. A drug is an inanimate object, it has no agenda. The choice to utilize that drug in an illegal manner is the root cause of the issue.

Having a full github and kaggle profile is worth more than any bullshit cert program. Just do work.

I’m guessing they didn’t teach you the scientific method since you’ve already made statements as facts with no citations. The scientific method needs to come before liberal arts education.


I've been looking at custom sleeving my next build but all I'm seeing are braided cable sleeves. Are there any rubbery/smooth cable sleeves out there?

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Ion Hazzikostas. The leveling is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of MMO's most of the experience will go over a typical player's head. There's also Ion's nihilistic outlook on the playerbase, which is deftly woven into his characterisation - his personal philosophy draws heavily from Ghostcrawler, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of this cynicism, to realize that they're not just about WoW - they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike leveling slowly truly ARE idiots - of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the experience of wiping just before the Lyceum in Blackrock Depths, which is itself is a cryptic reference to the Brothers Grimm epic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addled simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Ion Hazzikostas genius unfolds itself on their character select screens. What fools.. how I pity them. 😂

And yes, by the way, I DO have Blizzcon tickets. And no, you cannot see them. It's for the ladies' eyes only - and even then they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand.
