    Hidden variables are appealing because it would match the pattern of previous discovery in physics, and people like the idea that reality continues to function in a deterministic, logical fashion but the quantum level is simply a threshold for measurement behind which we have not managed to go.

    I don't know enough about quantum mechanics to even make up some bullshit theory, but I think both positions are understandable in the abstract.

    They were one of the earliest interpretations ruled out, is the thing

    There are still some candidate hidden variable theories floating around, but they're all as weird, if not weirder than qm itself

    I believe this, but I don't know how "we just haven't found the variables yet" can be ruled out, as that seems like proving a negative

    Assuming the presence of hidden variables constrains the behaviour of quantum systems in ways that it is possible to demonstrate don't occur, is the short version.

    Other notes:

    --on gender-neutral restrooms--it was next to the men's room so it was only used by women as far as I could tell. I liked it because I am someone who gets look in the women's restroom/actual "uh, this is the women's restroom..." comments, so knowing that that was impossible was kind of interesting.
    but I didn't go to any of the diversity/equality/trans issues panels offered because I hate bad panels and there's no way to verify how good the speakers were. Plus I don't want to go to a panel that makes me angst.
    although also on gender themes, just introducing myself by my last name seems to be received fine ALTHOUGH Delmain made some sort of joking comment on "what the fuck sort of name is that" which >:[ I am self-conscious about this lastname introduction initiative so don't bring up how weird it is >:[ >:[ >:[

    --on Catan:
    Mayfair sold Catan! They are not going to be running competitive Catan tournaments any more. It is unclear whether the new owners of Catan will be running competitive Catan tournaments after this year's one at Gen con. That's why they weren't at PAX.
    -Sad, though; it's so much a thing I do that the tournament organizer of years past recognized me through my cosplay and took the time to explain the whole situation to me.

    What, no the only last name related comment I made to you was asking you if went by your married name.

    I asked who or what <name> was because I had never met you and didn't know your name. I feel it's disingenuous to assume, at a nerd convention, that I should have known it was someone's name as opposed to a board game or character name or something.

    Going by last names is fine, I did it for years.

    @credeiki

    hm yeah it was loud so my brain just processed whatever you said into 'what kind of a name is that' which sent me into a small and hopefully concealed bit of emotional unrest. Sorry for misrepresenting the interaction in that case!

    ITT chat embraces nihilism

    Is there word for someone who willa argue vehemently for like, moral behavior and happiness while also holding supremely nihilistic beliefs, ultimately?

    Well, a nihilist, considering how easy it is for a nihilist to advocate choices that could be construed as, or happen to overlap with, classic morality and/or eudaimonic principles, even if for profoundly different reasons

    But if you view nihilistic principles as noble or logical but unconscionable or irrelevant on a practical or self-interested level, and flee into the comforting arms of morality as espoused by the Medicis, Scalia might call you a faint-hearted originalist, unable to face what your own logic demands

    so there's this guy trying to get us to carry his line of products and he just fuckin drips of snake oil

    but my boss was like sure we'll place a few thousand dollar order with you even though everyone here who knows the product or the guy says it's shit

    when a salesman tells you the "accounting side of things" are what he really doesn't like to get into

    why the fuck, man

    It usually means the sales person is on a tight leash with pricing from the sales manager. It may be that guy is an idiot or the sales department is run badly. Usually a salesperson should know what margin is there, and what discounts they can offer. But some sales people get desperate and go right to max discount which is bad in the long term, or the sales manager micromanages all quotes.

    this guy is apparently notorious for just being a shyster but my boss apparently wasn't interested in learning that

    It happens. Generally you can break sales down into two general type. Long term relationship based stuff and short term relationship stuff. The long term relationship guy is gonna take you to dinner and is planning on being the sales person for your account for a few years. Generally they can't be sleazy much. If they lie to you, the odds of getting caught go up and so on. That doesn't mean it won't happen but the scale of the lies definitely changes. From it will do XYZ and won't to, yes the parts shipped yesterday. Part of this is that they often have some degree of supporting staff. And if you do catch them, you can use it to push for a discount.

    The Short term guys don't have to manage it. So they tend to lie like dogs. Also they tend toward high pressure tactics. Because if they can get you to buy, it doesn't matter to them that you left with a bad taste in your mouth. See: Car Salesmen. Now sometimes people transition from one side to the other. And sometimes the short term guys talk themselves into a job they can't hack it at. If they are really good at talking they will float around the industry getting shit canned from job after job. See: The guy who I mentioned one day will be the token white dude at one of the Chinese booths.

    And with resellers you can get guys who want to be long term relationship guys but really aren't in an organization structured for it and they tend to have the bad habits of both.

    Asshole salesman story. The company I used to work for made software. And it bought cameras to relabel and sell. The agreement with the camera manufacturer was that we would tell them what states what cameras were sold in so their guys could get commission on it. But our primary point of contact was changing all of it so that it was all looking like it was sold in his territory. We did $12 million in sales with them when this was found out. Maybe $4 million was in his territory with the other $8 million split three ways. That's the shit that doesn't just get you fired but starts vendettas. His name is shit in the industry. I have no idea why he hasn't changed industries.
