Grr. Renting random apartments is fraught with annoyance. Rather than being under the pot with the mint in it (which was green, rather than brown) the key was under the other flowerpot. And now the door is jammed - the key turns, bu won't open it. And the owner of the apartment isn't responding to calls.

Renting random apartments is fraught with annoyance.

Tell me about it! I woke up in the middle of the night trying to figure out whether the sound of claws skittering across the floor meant some animal was in the place I'm staying or in the neighboring apartment that I was hearing through the very, very thin walls. Didn't really reach a conclusion.

From a friend's post on my feed at the Other Place:

Sturgeon's Revelation states that ninety percent of everything is crap. The naive refutation of Sturgeon's Revelation is as follows: "Let it be assumed that ninety percent of everything is crap. Now it is evident that crap is a species within the genus 'everything'. Therefore, by the hypothesis, ten percent of crap is not crap. But this is absurd. Therefore the hypothesis is false, etc. Q.E.D." This refutation fails because it does not recognize that something can be crap in two distinct ways or modes; on the surface level or on the ironic level. Approximately ninety percent of things that are crap on the surface level are also crap on the ironic level; the other ten percent are actually good on the ironic level, therefore after a fashion "crap that is not crap." It was on this discovery that Agaischrophiles of Alexendria founded classical kitsch theory.

Posted by: Benquo | Link to this comment | 05-25-13 10:05 PM

It also fails because Sturgeon's law doesn't say "exactly 90% of everything is crap".

Posted by: Benquo | Link to this comment | 05-25-13 11:27 PM

246

The statement of the problem does seem to assume that "90% of everything is crap" means that 90% of every possible subset of everything is crap, including the set of all crappy things.

This seems obviously false as long as there is at least one thing. For that thing, consideted alone, must be either crappy, in which case 100% of things in the set are crappy, or not crappy, in which case 90% of things in the set are crappy.

It seems more plausible to take this as an asymptotic property: that for any set chosen in a manner orthogonal to crappiness, as the size of the set increases, the percentage of members of the set that are crappy converges almost surely toward 90%.

The statement of the problem does seem to assume that "90% of everything is crap" means that 90% of every possible subset of everything is crap, including the set of all crappy things.

If 100% of the crappy things are crap, then 90% of them are, too. Hence the issue with the law not saying "exactly 90%". "90% of everything is crap" is compatible with 100% of some (kinds of) things being crap.

Sigh... just now becoming functional again. Is there anyone who hasn't already made plans, who might want to do something starting around 2pm?

Also, time-delayed liveblogging:

Fri night: Apo looks much less malevolent than I'd expected. Awl and I have mutual acquaintances! Spiced raw ground beef is rather good.

Sat 7pm: Jackmormon and Teraz are cooking in the basement. Chopper is chopping spinach.

Teraz can cook in four languages, but keeps switching on the wrong burner (the one that's not underneath the pot).

Sat 9pm: Rob Helpy-chalk talks about teaching his students to think abstractly. Witt smells gas, switches off unlit burner on stove.

Teo discusses declining oil production in Alaska, future importance of polar shipping routes.

Apo, dancing in front of camera, now displays expected degree of malevolence. Sifu is a muppet?

Kreskin is a statistician! (I like statisticians.)

Sat 11pm: Trapnel's phone is hovering nearby like a knife-missile.

M/tch has indescribable facial expression. Either he's killed someone, he's going to kill someone, or he's just tired.

Okay, help is needed! Natilo has informed me by phone that he has become separated from you other 'foggers at the National Gallery and somehow neglected to bring anyone's phone number with him. He is hoping that someone who can help sort this out will see this, email me at [redacted] at gmail and send me your phone number and then I can send it to him and he can call you. So help would be appreciated - if you have someone's phone number who you know to be at the National Gallery, perhaps you could send that to me assuming that the people at the Gallery are looking at, like, art and stuff and not totally glued to this thread on their smartypants phones.

Honestly. Some people aren't safe out.

At Union Station, 45 minutes early. I wish I were still hanging out with you guys.

I liked the recap in 304. Some things I learned:

1. Teraz is an excellent cook.

2. It can be really nice to meet in person people whose comments you like.

3. It can be equally nice to meet people whose comments you have a vaguely pleasant association with, but don't fully remember. (Nondescript pseuds, I'm looking at you.)

3. Amiable significant others are a boon to the blog (whether present or absent at this gathering).

4. Holy smokes, Unfogged has really gotten old(er) and domestic.

5. Having 2 of 3 days be 65 degrees (F) and sunny made the outdoor wanderings and various Metro schlepping much more pleasant.

6. Meetups skew male. Like, really male.

7. Next time: Board games. More/better dessert.

The poor recycling carts in the front of the VRBO are no match for this bunch of lushes.

We are leaving the hospital after 4 days! I bet our bill was more that the VRBO, Labs' stylist, alcohol, and plumber's bill combined. Here was the best sentence I read this weekend: "Inpatient Medical and Surgical Care in a General Hospital; Benefit limit: None." Copay was $500, though- used to be lower but they've been raising fees on the plan at work.
As Sifu got a glimpse during the babyless baby hangout, she's happy again. Needs a lot of follow up monitoring, aspirin as a blood thinner and steroids, but doctors are happy with her progress- initial heart scan read as a borderline cardiac aneurysm but it already went back to almost normal after just 2 days of treatment. Kawasaki syndrome in case anyone was wondering- one of those diseases where you think, "Well, she's been sick longer than usual, but probably nothing serious" and it turns out to be something serious. Something for all you first time babysplosion parents to be paranoid about! (Not really, US incidence is 1/10000 favoring boys and Asians of which she is neither, we just happened to win the disease lottery.) Fortunately we live in a city where the hospitals have teams of doctors dedicated to rare illnesses.

I had never heard of it- first time I saw it was when she had a fever, rash, and threw up, and I googled those symptoms- and I work in biomedical research. Of course the problem is those symptoms mean lots of non-dangerous illnesses too.
Part of the problem is the cause is unknown, there are just vague associations with ethnicity and other random things (Living near still bodies of water? Using a humidifier? Eczema? Maybe a mystery virus?) and all the research I do is pretty oriented towards things with a defined cause or at least molecular observations.

Pigs are usually white and furry, they're just the victims of a dedicated and malign misinformation campaign.

Another downside of short-term rental apartments you might not have encountered at your VRBO: neighbors who run a very loud vacuum cleaner for three continuous hours. They must have the most well-vacuumed floors in the world by now.

Amazing update: after round two, Lee got involved and rather than inflaming the situation, helped Nia calm down and elaborate on the problem and then work on problem-solving. They're going to go out to dinner tomorrow for some one-on-one time and stay up to watch Chopped. This is exactly the kind of thing Old Me would have done and had good results with, but Lee has always been opposed because she thinks being strict and pushing for consequences is better.

555: Some factors are

1) Lots of water

2) Being too interested in the conversation to want to leave it to refill my drink

3) Spending a lot of time in the sitting room and being too lazy to go all the way to the kitchen to get a new drink

4) Plenty of coffee

5) Starting early

6) Practice

7) Being probably the youngest person at the party (once Noser left).

4) and 5) may actually be the most important. On Sunday I started drinking at 4PM, switched to coffee and juice at midnight once I realized I was getting sleepy-drunk, and was sober enough to drive home at 3AM.

YMMV. In particular if you are the sort of person who gets more lively as you get drunker, my strategy is unlikely to be appealing.

But everyone was so awesome.

569: I DID steal it from the bottom unit to the top and then stuck a fake nametag on it and encouraged people to desecrate it in various ways. It's hard to know just how much intellectual property theft is enough for you, I guess.

And my time in the kitchen was as much a drunkenness-avoidance strategy as it was any pure desire to be helpful. Everyone offered to help (and togolosh and M/tch and LB and others did great work when I asked them to) but there's not really much room for delegation when the only job is to chop veggies and there's one cutting board and one almost sufficiently sharp knife. The key to the best pasta sauce I've ever made is that if you're cooking for 50ish, it takes forever to do all that chopping and so the veggies spend forever cooking away in the excellent olive oil and butter, which would make just about anything delicious but can really do a number on tasty fresh veggies from local farms.

I regret that my being stuck in one spot means I didn't get to talk to emdash or bill and ms. bill or Bave or several others as much as I would have liked to. Well, I didn't get to talk to anyone as much as I would have liked to or we'd all still be there, but I have some specific bingo spots that get carried over to next time even though I'm amazed how many people I did get to talk to and how comfortable and fun all that talking was!

Great, great party and I wish I had had more time...every conversation I got into I felt could have been at least a several hundred comment thread! Special thanks to all the organizers and workers!

Very fun party and weekend. More people should have come, on the other hand there were more than it was practically possible to hangout with over the course of an evening. If I believed in deities I'd be thanking them for whatever physiological quirk I have that makes me mostly immune from hangovers and cursing them for the one that lets me get sunburn on the top of my head. Also, next time I'm investing in a cheap, serviceable knife or three.

That may be taking the thread title a little too seriously.

613: Right, but the theory predicts that they would also be unable to viscerally get it for climatic reasons, which seems wrong to me.

A thing that can be distressing is when you're standing outside the opera house and your ex, catching sight of you as she comes up, cheerily waves to you, and then you chitchat pleasantly until her date arrives (naturally, you're introduced and shake hands), at which point they both go in. If you chance to catch sight of them, or more accurately her (who cares about him?) returning seatward after the intermission, evidently having a good time, that adds to the noted phenomenon, as does the observation that she looks fantastic.

Now, how do you feel about global warming?

Ah, OK. I guess most people I know from the upper Midwest say stuff like, "Yeah, when I was a kid, sometimes we had snow on Halloween. Not anymore." Or how they remember that there was "always" snow on the ground at Xmas. Even though climate change isn't observable at that level yet (I don't think), I think people who had cold, snowy winters tend to think that winters are now less severe than when they were a kid. This could be a sample size problem, but it made it easier not to rant at our stupid fellow grad students who thought climate change was bogus.

614: Poor you. IME, the only way that sequence could be worse is when the ex's date is hideously unattractive. (As in, ex picked that person over me??)

Although not only was that violating the sanctity of off-blog communication, it was also just rude, since I'm going to bed now. Nevermind. Feel free to delete that! Or, you know, pour your heart out. Whichever.

614: assuming here that you're at the opera very obviously on your own? Yeah, not good.
619 could be good because then you're thinking to yourself "yeah, baby, see what you're missing. Too bad you have to go home with that tonight."

I've said it repeatedly here, but I firmly believe global climate change has changed NYC winters in the last decade. I suppose I could be talked out of that belief by someone with data showing that they've actually all been within normal variation for the twentieth century climate, but I don't think that's the case.

(Sadly, while the NYC winters worry me because of the global implications, I like our new climate quite a bit better than the old one. The milder winters more than offset the hotter summers.)

Well, written by someone who works all day in an airconditioned office. If I worked outdoors, I'd probably gripe about the hot weather more.

I just meant that, you know, you trade milder winters for being the first to recommend Fresh Brine.

Now that the comment spam is deleted, 599 doesn't make a lot of sense. But sure, let's revive the six-month-old thread!

Confusingly enough, continued global warming will likely make the UK (and Northern Europe generally) much much colder: if the melting of the Greenland icecap causes the shutdown of the Atlantic Heat Conveyor. We had a notably long cold spring this year, then a lovely late-lasting summer -- and are apparently due an unusually bitter winter. I don't know how much of this is within ordinary tolerances of variation, though. I can remember the winter of 1962-63, when wolves roamed the iced-over Thames and pterosaurs fell frozen from the sky.
