Do you like Godard movies? Probably most famous leftist director. Do you think he doing disservice to socialist ideas by obscuring them? I love his 60s movies: Pierrot le fou, Weekend, but i must admit i dont understand his latest movies, maybe because i dont understand historical context. I watched Film Socialisme today but i dont know what to think about that, can anyone explain what does he want to achieve?

Can't really help you with his later stuff, but I've enjoyed all of his early New Wave works from the 60s as well. Contempt, My Life to Live, and Alphaville are personal favorites.

I'm not a film enthusiast (far from it) but I watched La Chinoise on a weed edible. It was great.

Anyone watch this series?

It chronicles from 1920s to 1960s and then various other americana stuff.
I watched the 1930s one and it seemed pretty relevant now

I used to play alto saxophone when I was still in grade school. Because I really liked the idea of playing Jazz music because it was so cool. Though my original pick was going to be a flute because it would have been super cool to learn that from watching cartoons and such. But glad I didn't as flute is very hard to play with huge hands like mine.

Yes, an old "Melody King" 3/4 (parlor) guitar I got cheap on ebay.
I had a Stefan Grossman instructional DVD on fingerpicked blues guitar, in which he said for this genre either get an old battered one from a junk shop, or a cheap new one.

Pic related shows the guitar complete " bits of paper modification" to lift the strings high enough to stop fret buzzing.
When I've got some money together I'll get a proper guitar "set up" done at a guitar shop.
But in the meantime it does the job. I used it to record this :

But AFAIK it's not really peer to peer, is it? The files are stored on regular computers but the index of files is stored on some central servers.
There's now something on i2p called MuWire that IIRC at least claimed to be actually decentralised, but I'm not sure. I couldn't manage to get it working anyway.

I'm sick of seeing stereotypical "california lifestyle" shit in concept cars. Here's a few examples:

http://www.diseno-art.com/encyclopedia/concept_cars/honda_extreme.html

http://www.diseno-art.com/encyclopedia/concept_cars/gmc_pad.html

Yes, the examples are a bit dated but the dated nature of them just shows how stupid this all is.

And, as it directly pertains to Leftism: in the 1930s the government created a specific architecture for rural areas, known as National Park Service Rustic. NPSR-national is just a styled blend of everything, but it was adapted by California's government for various uses around the state: in the north CA Park Rustic tends to lean towards clapboard-looking shacks while south of Fremont (a notable place, it's where the first railroads went through to Oakland) they went for plaster-based spanish designs. Both prominently feature the state's colors: white, red and brown. Spanish buildings trended red while Norcal ones trended brown.

Why does this matter to leftists at all? Well in transportation specifically these colors were used to create what is now Caltrain's logo, back when the state government decided to just take over service completely from it's disinterested private operator, Southern Pacific. Notably SP's first class passenger colors were silver and red, and this transition marked an important step in American cultural development as (wait for it) Americans, including stereotypically rural ones that voted for Reagan all six times, voted for the government to provide a service that private industry was unwilling to continue. This was a hard fought victory, while Amtrak had already existed at that point this was a step in forcing the President to not stop Congress from buying Amtrak their own equipment (at the time, Amtrak was still using 30s-era legacy cars given over per the terms of it's creation).

On a similar point, same goes for SF's Muni whose choice of grey/red reflects the growth of Norcal's economy relative to LA's; Muni's old yellow/white paint existed in response to LA's rise and LA is associated with warmer colors. None of this is referenced in automobile concept cars, because car concepts are what companies want people to be and not whPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Here are some more examples of what I'm talking about, from railroad stations around CA. Most were torn down since it's owner, like all companies, has little respect for what they create as it's all in service of profit.

Car companies are the same but their concept designs are more alien and have essentially no relevance to Californians. It doesn't need to be for them to make money, and it's infuriating because they probably could design a "California" automobile in the same way Sacramento built a "California" railroad, so to speak.

Anyway, compare it to anything found in one of these magazines. Generally speaking, the magazine's commissioned art will be way off base as to the reality most Californians experience. I use railroads as an example since class struggle is more obvious there.

As it pertains to Socal architecture: modern capitalist architecture tends to be far, far less practical than actual Spanish architecture. This is because actual Spanish structures (and high-quality copies, like train stations) were built with plaster, masonry and concrete not timber covered with plaster. As a result actual Spanish designs have to be more conservative, and they have a much hardier look. Conduit has to go on top of walls, not neatly packed within them.

This is extremely evident along SF's Embarcadero where old industrial warehouses remain next to brand new hipster cafes and "tech" spaces.

Hey OP it’s dumb anon here. Thank you for explaining something so interesting. Architecture is way more indicative of things then people’d thing. Cheers g

Math problem: Suppose your coin may be biased, but you don't know the actual probabilities. How do you make coin-tossing fair? Variant: Let's add to this problem the start-orientation bias.

Toss the coin twice with the calls reversed (same start orientation). Repeat if tied.

Another math problem: Suppose the coins are unbiased and that there is no start-orientation bias either. What are the odds that you win six tosses in a row?
>>

 No.2094

>>2069
With each toss, the number of possible sequences doubles. 2*2*2*2*2*2 = 64. So, there are 64 possible sequences for six coin tosses and in only one of them you win six times. In other words, that you DON'T win six times in a row has a probability between 98 and 99 percent.
