I'm sitting here with my thumb up my ass so I decided to crunch some numbers and I think I can actually get you to watch every single video on YouTube. Now, prepare yourself, this is not going to be easy on you.

First we'll have to book a flight to Kolkata, India. This city is the home of a science themed park called Science City. They have the densest pixel per inch, hemispherical screen currently in operation according to Wikipedia. There are a number of screens that are larger or more pixel dense out there, but they're either spherical, making it impossible for you to look at all the pixels at once from a single direction, or they're very long, going well beyond your peripheral vision, making it impossible for you see all the pixels without turning your head.

A hemispherical screen on the other hand is perfect because we can compact a lot of information in a single direction, and even concentrating a lot of content at a single, central point, perfect for a vision with good depth perception, which happens to be the case for human vision.

Now, the screen in Science City is 15,360 × 8,640 pixels. Basic math allow us to know we can have 432 SD videos on screen using the 480p, 4:3 format for that amount of pixels with perfect pixel parity. We'll place you on the best seat in the house, so you'll be able to have 432 YouTube videos on your field of vision at all times.

YouTube has approximately 3.86 billion uploaded videos as of 2023 and 100,000 videos are uploaded every hour. In order to make sure you can watch videos faster than they're uploaded I developed a tight but humanly possible watching schedule. You'll be watching videos 8 hours a day at a 3x3x2 routine. 3 hours of watching after breakfast, 3 after lunch and 2 more before going to bed. It's going to take some discipline.

You'll be watching one second of every single video. That's 25920 videos per minute, 1,555,200 videos per hour, 12,441,600 per day. To catch up with the 3.86 billion videos we'll need 311 days, approximately 10 months and 10 days.

The problem is people are still uploading videos while you watch the uploaded catalogue. By the time you finish watching all the videos uploaded by the point you began watching them, 744 million new videos would have been uploaded. It's not a problem because I made sure you can watch faster than it's uploaded but it will take you an extra 6 days to catch up, bumping the total time to 317 days.

I hope you like Indian food anon, we'll be in Kolkata for a while.

Isn't there 100 hours of new content being upload every second? Can you let me borrow your time machine for a bit?

Speaking of YT, there a few channels I only watch once a year around the Christmas/NY week due to their slow uploading, but even so, it is pathetic that soviet womble has only uploaded a few videos and oversimplified has not uploaded anything at all.

Going to sleep now. Hope my parents die. erase that. Hope every human dies.

The older I get, the more I understand that we are an accursed species. I can still have a good time but I am not going to ignore and make facetiouus remarks about life. Human life is a mistake:

Females are children. Men are beastly goblins.
They reproduce
bound the children to a wheel suffering

it will never be right, no matter what they do or say
no matter what race or culture

a baseline for a good life is meaningless
things are never good enough because people are problematic
society is

Nonstick is a scam. Just use oil. Oil being labeled as unhealthy is all part of the scam. It adds calories, sure, but the small amount it adds is so small that it doesn't matter to anyone who isn't trying to min-max their diet.

I would love to try some RC but never found for sale, I'll keep an eye for it.

For cola based soda I usually go back to Coke zero myself but Pepsi was on sale and I got a bunch of it. I had completely forgot the taste, it's not bad at all. I got a few Schweppes as well.

I would love to try some Sarsaparilla but again I've never found it for sale. Best soda I've ever tasted is probably Chinotto but that stuff is prohibitively expensive around here.

I've never seen RC Cola, but a random store in my country decided to import a load of Faygo cola from the USA. I only hear people mocking it because of Insane Clown Posse, but I got it, and it was pretty good!
They stopped selling it though. I'd always wanted to try it though and it was cool.

Every community I participated in is dead. Every forum, imageboard, gaming group. Dissolved, dead, gone. The only good thing about the internet now is the piracy and perhaps protopod and accursed farms on youtube but that's old stuff, relics, I don't care much about them anyway. On the other hand I don't actually miss anything, fuck it I say.

I want to buy all the DLC for stellaris but I can't decide how to do it. I already got the game for free on GOG and GOG is discounting quite a few of the DLC, but not all of them. The other DLC are available discounted from various stores, no one has them all, but they are all for the steam version which I would have to buy the base game for. I feel like buying the steam version is probably the better call because there are more sales available from more places more often with the steam version but something about buying a game that I already own is grating on me. I hope I don't procrastinate too long and miss out on all the sales again like a dumbass.

In the past, I could search for a book on my public library's online catalog, and usually, SOMEWHERE in the county, a library would have a copy.
Nowadays it seems like I can never find any of the books I want. At least, not physical copies. My only choices seem to always just be e-books.

If I wanted an e-book I'd probably just pirate it and not have to go through the library's hoops…

 No.310347

Why you want a physical copy? You have to go get it and then go back there again to return it, seems like a hassle.

I just prefer reading from physical books. I guess I never adjusted to reading books on a screen. I don't enjoy it.
>>310348
I guess this is true, too, since I have no other reasons for venturing out into the world.

And this reminds me of another library-related woe of mine! Long ago, books from libraries had a little card in the back of the book. This card would be stamped or handwritten with dates from when the book was checked out. I always got some small pleasure from looking at these after checking out a book. I like seeing how people before me, from decades ago, read the same book.
But nowadays, I never see these cards anymore. I guess because they just don't need to do that anymore. But I miss it.

 No.310355

>>310349
I used to check the cards inside those book pocket things myself. I don't miss the old system though, to be able to simply download a book from home within the minute is just too convenient. I collected books from my teens to my mid 20s, had about 800 at one point. Got rid of them all eventually. I do kinda miss reading in a library though, when you're in a public space intended for reading the atmosphere somehow helps you shift into focus.

i often wonder whether investment advice from online people works

so i think about scraping the advice from twitter posts for example and retroactively simulating a purchase, and holding it for a day, week, month, year, etc, to see if the advice was any good or not

this would be a program, not me doing it manually. when it has analyzed a bunch of stuff, you can score the accuracy of every person giving investment advice

i think in many cases there is probably very good short term gain, likely because these famous people simply mentioning things itself can trigger others to buy, but the long term gain for this specific kind of person's advice is probably bad. more likely the best kind of advice-giver that would be found is some autistic guy that does actual research and has found a way to make predictions, but why would such a person be posting on twitter?

i'm sure the resulting twitter accounts must be bizarre, probably a good majority are just bots

I used the soft murmur app on my phone and it was functioning perfectly. Then me dumbass updated it, and now they want a registration and monthly subscription. I would have paid for it once, but I don't want to register. Is there an open source alternative that doesn't require an internet connection or subscription? Even if I pay once for an alternative app, it could be all made worse with just one update when you don't expect it.

Best example is Poweramp, I really like V2, but V3 changed the GUI to the worse (as most "new" versions of any program today) - but at least I can always download V2 in the forum and it works with my license.

Any recommendations? It should be a simple apk download.
Sry for that stupid question, I'm not really up to date with all the phone stuff and sometimes I even don't care about new developements in tech at all … It seems that even on PC many "programs" are now getting the "app" mode, with subscription models, cloud and whatever.
