Links With Your Coffee - Wednesday




will someone please explain the cartoon on cectic? i usually love all the cartoons norm posts but i'm not even close to understanding this one...

jill, Well, I'm stumped - I knew the symbol was for a logic gate, so I looked it up, and its a NAND gate: a gate that delivers an output "TRUE" unless all its inputs are "TRUE". Maybe the octopus was trying to give the egg an input?

Cectic comics are usually anti-religious, but the connection escapes me.

Re: The Brothers Karamazov (which I've never read). I was curious what whether web sites dispensing quotes would list this one, I didn't find it, but did find a nice one:

Man is tormented by no greater anxiety than to find someone quickly to whom he can hand over that great gift of freedom with which the ill-fated creature is born.

Well, Now I can say oops too.

That's not a NAND gate, its a NOR gate: The output of a NOR gate is true when none of its inputs are true. Now, its meaning is pretty obvious. :)


onegoodmove's favorite chickenhawk gets waterboarded:

Funny stuff. This dumb motherfucker lasts about ten seconds. Now he suddenly believes that torture is, in fact, torture. Maybe he should write a book now explaining to all of us what "torture" is.

What actually does "Collosal" mean?

Can someone help a poor, non-Australian pedant, please?
