This is my American Pit Bull Terrier puppy, Ziva, at 3 months old. She loves getting her nails painted at my work! 

Look at this dog. Look at those nails. What a world we inhabit

important takeaways from playing hearthstone and coding and watching tv nonstop in a hotel room for a weekend:

  • steven universe rocks and is really good : )
  • is ihop any good? has anyone been to ihop? Should I go there or to the very mediocre chinese buffet I ate at last night?
  • I need to learn way more about the merits/demerits of different vartypes. I can’t keep ignoring them
  • everything on tv is porn, but it’s all trying really hard not to look like porn. The history channel has a ‘survival’ show called Naked and Afraid where the contestants are forced to survive in the jungle while inexplicably naked. They spend the whole time dodging snakebites and painstakingly tabulating the precise level of Attractiveness exhibited by their fellow contestants. It’s a fun time
  • wodehouse books are out of copyright, so, even though I lost mine, I can get every word he ever wrote, legally, for free, on my tablet
  • there’s a rule in most big accommodations companies that you have to be 21 to check into a hotel. I wish someone had told me that earlier

astrophobe:

online chess coverage is wild. I watch channel fireball (magic the gathering) coverage pretty much every day, and poker coverage most days, but recently I’ve been watching more 41st chess olympiad coverage than anything. Magic is a bunch of silly goons laughing about percentages. Poker is a bunch of very serious goons who are spectacularly stern&smug about percentages. Chess is 1500 people in dress shirts writing pages and pages of squiggly diagrams and algebraic notation in a futile attempt to understand what 2 supergeniuses in a closed room somewhere saw in the unfathomable powerhouses of their labyrinthine parietal lobes when they made such-and-such a move

PS I’m in my fifth consecutive year of non-stop screaming about Judit Polgar

Chess coverage sounds interesting. Do you have any links you’d recommend?

I really don’t know much about this I’m afraid. There is one chess youtube channel, Chess Network, that looks to be the biggest and best-organized. The people who annotate games there see a lot of things I don’t see, so I figure it’s good enough. Let me know if you find anywhere really cool though

PSA

In math, the interval of real numbers between real numbers a and b including a and is denoted [a, b]. The continuous interval excluding a and b is represented as (a, b). We can exclude one endpoint by writing (a, b] or [a, b).

Imagine the hellish universe where the best way that anyone had come up with to write “20-23, not including 23” involved omitting infinite possible values

i live in a hotel i’m going infinite on hearthstone arena mode i found a $10 chinese buffet in the middle of the Maryland woods and my internship ends on monday how’s it going

alsoooo toronto/andrea tomorrow (Technically), Ottawa for a week in a week, then Toronto for the long haul. Tomorrow I have to write a huge bunch of code from my hotel room home. Weird how if I write code tomorrow it’s proprietary, because it contains information about the larger NDA-protected system it’s meant to sit in, but if I write code on the plane I can do whatever I want with it. I’ve sold literal portions of my thoughts … for a specified amount of time. Anyhow Toronto tomorrow

I was watching the news the other day and although Ferguson is almost 70% Black, less than 15% of them were registered to vote. 
I guess they’re going to use this tragedy as a chance to get them more engaged with local politics. 

We need to get this organized in every city
