    Anyone remember the California Raisins

    all i know was that they were a giant failure, marketing-wise

    They released 7 albums. They had a single on the Billboard Hot 100. They had a TV show. They won an Emmy!


    The only failure was that the cost of success was literally twice as much as California raisin producers made in increased profits.

    That...that last part's pretty important.

    everything went well except this one thing though

    The thing that they were designed to do, naturally

    I'm watching some old true crime show about a girl who was abducted, and the voiceover says "helicopters were called to aid in the search" and it cut to an AH-1 Cobra with a full rocket loadout.

    it's still kind of weird though

    It also really depends on where you live. Growing up near the ocean, sure, rock salt seems dumb. Growing up in middle of a continental mass, rock salt is kind super important.

    that too

    but also like, scale

    I mean, I think like well just dry it, but now I'm thinking in terms of a pot, would be big salt pans wouldn't it, and scraping that together ain't trivial, and really I guess my main business devolves quickly into moving piles of salt around on wheelbarrows, whether I've got a mine or salt pans

    (although there's loads of different methods of course)

    Ok the spam was some grade-A word salad tonight. The ones lately seem like they actually had the hang of translation.

    Due to my recent and nearly crippling Solitairica binge, I've started idly plotting out a game based on factoring polynomials. Some main ideas based on this incredibly garish mockup (just to mess around with potential layouts):

    qpozwliiu7ty.jpg

    1. the "enemies" either are or produce polynomials into the target (4)
    2. sliding stuff up the three "attack" paths (2) performs the corresponding operation on the target (4): addition, subtraction, and division
    -- division attacks can fail, the others cost resource
    3. you draw cards into your hand (1) and can either
    -- slide them directly up an attack path (2)
    -- drag them through an operation into the bay (3), where they perform the operation on whatever is stored in the bay
    4. you can drag whatever you have stored in the bay (3) up an attack path
    5. when you've reduced the target as much as you can, you can clear it by swiping it off the screen
    -- this will either generate or cost resource based on how much is left
    nywy5geijigx.jpg

    The blue bits are potential popup menu locations for items/abilities/menus, health etc. go on the left.

    I'm thinking maybe each level can have additional polynomials pile up, and there could be multiple storage bays so that you can plan ahead.



    Now to never actually get around to coding any of it.

    1) I can't believe you jumped from publishing to programming. I wish I could do that.

    2) You didn't say the name of the webcomic but I read all of Green + Gold and now I want more.

    3) I'm reading a webcomic about gay birdmen on that same site....

    how fluid are your mechanics? What are their statistics?

    Many of the numerical methods in fluid mechanics are statistical in nature

    (I'm glad I never have to do fluid mechanics again, even within engineering people that can do it well are basically sorcerers)

    It sounds like a professor who doesn’t want any students but they’re required to offer a class so they named it something that would discourage interest.

    none of that is how it works here though

    it's all part of the course

    there's a couple electives, later, but for the most part there's no picking and choosing classes

    and there's not really any professors since this isn't a university


    they used to not be able to have less than 10 point classes, so tons of classes were these weird combos but now they can but it's still a 10 point class just with two different components and I'm not really sure why it's not two 5 point classes

    Sometimes I calculate a Reynolds number.

    The other day I calculated some B tier numbers to give a hand wavy "this probably won't work" assessment

    I’m having some real bad days now, can’t remember a uniformly bad day these last six months or so but yesterday was garbage and today started out that way too.

    All because I’m trying to take blood tests, which I’ve now spent a collective 3.5 hours on and still not gotten done. It’s amazing how extremely simple things can fail.
