    Oh yes, you see the mice set up the whole Earth business, as an epic experiment in behavioural psychology; a ten-million year program -

    ARTHUR:
    No, look, you’ve got it the wrong way round. It was us. We used to do the experiments on them.

    SLARTIBARTFAST:
    A ten-million year program in which your planet Earth and its people formed the matrix of an organic computer. I gather that the mice did arrange for you humans to conduct some primitively staged experiments on them just to check how much you’d really learned, to give you the odd prod in the right direction, you know the sort of thing: suddenly running down the maze the wrong way; eating the wrong bit of cheese; or suddenly dropping dead of myxomatosis.

    Richard continued, “What I mean is that if you really want to understand something, the best way is to try and explain it to someone else. That forces you to sort it out in your mind. And the more slow and dim-witted your pupil, the more you have to break things down into more and more simple ideas. And that’s really the essence of programming. By the time you’ve sorted out a complicated idea into little steps that even a stupid machine can deal with, you’ve learned something about it yourself. Isn’t that true?”

    IRL/Dash Kismet: Just as this quote scrolled by, I happened to be reading this bit from Flash Boys by Michael Lewis.

    "The decisions he makes make sense," Brad said of [programmer] Rob. "He puts an incredible amount of thought into them. And since he puts so much thought into his decisions, he’s capable of explaining them to others."

    Skimming Tumblr for a Horrors song to reblorp but it’s just endless photos of Mopey McGee and the bass drum graphic so forget it.

     
  5. This page has been up since June 10, 1996. It’s seen one revision and one migration, which roughly coincided. Maybe one day it will line up with my dreams for it. Please tour around. There’s much to see.

    (I have taken a personal vow not to socially media about sports this fall, so this sort of thing should be rare.)

At our reunion last weekend, 3 of us bet against our school to win the East. The optimist who took the other side of the bet is also the only season-ticket holder. There’s some psychology there, but we’re too dumb to figure it out.

"An alligator wearing sunglasses? Now I’ve seen everything!"

Ha! I was saving that gator screenshot for Saturday and the start of NCAAF….

  9. TMBG’s “Experimental Film” on the organ at Fenway. Between this song and Boston BeerWorks’ blueberry ale, I could almost give a damn about baseball.

     
  10. HA: Comic Book Guy is based on a guy who lived next door to me freshman year of college. Everybody back then had those dry erase boards where they left messages for each other—before cell phones—and he would put a listing, a ranking of the top 5 or bottom 5 people in the dorm–people he liked and didn’t like. In CBG voice: You just made the top of my list.
