2020.12.02 00:24 nowrongwrong The Hong Kong protestors had five clear demands and repeated them continuously. I've been reading posts for the past two weeks and I'm struggling to understand even one clear demand of these new protests over monetization

I'm not against protesting. I think what this subreddit did to protest Blizzard's awful retaliation against pro-HK streamers was both noble and worthwhile.
But after sitting through the last two weeks of these latest protests, I cannot figure out what the hearthstone community either expects or demands from Blizzard or the Hearthstone developers. Sort the Top posts by Week or even Month and tell me if I'm wrong. I see jokes, memes, humor and many attacks for being greedy, deceptive, pathological liars. After reading through the top 100 posts for the past month, I could only find two clear and concise suggestions:
1) Separate costs for wild vs standard crafting 2) Move away from the Free 2 Play model
The remainder of the posts only make extremely vague and unspecified demands:
1) "Fairer monetization model" - What does that mean in specific terms? Bundles should cost half as much? Cards should disenchant for twice as much? Should we move to the Chinese market model where packs are removed and you purchase crafting dust only? Without specifics, calls for change are meaningless.
2) "Not getting the entire set" - A common theme of complaints is "I spent $X and still can't craft any deck I please." Is this really the ultimate goal for the Hearthstone community? One flat price to buy every card in an expansion? Do you not see how that would instantly lead to complaints about being "forced" to pay for cards for classes you never play or cards you never plan to use?
3) "Be like Legends of Runeterra" - I find it very interesting that people are making comparisons to Runeterra and not Artifact, given that Artifact was purposely designed to counter Hearthstone's "flaws" (less RNG, less casual, and with Trading card economy). We all know what a complete and utter failure Artifact was, and now the 2.0 revamp is walking back those same changes that differentiated it from Hearthstone, most notably its economic model. Runeterra is cheaper for the same reason that every MMORPG that came after World of Warcraft was cheaper: to expand into a marketplace already dominated by the leader.
So, I put the question out there: What are the specific demands that would satisfy the Reddit Hearthstone community? I offer the following five demands as a starting point:
1) Sell prebuilt decks for a flat cost 2) Rewards based on variety, not time spent 3) Sandbox / testing mode 4) Sell both individual cards and packs 5) Separate professional mode clients
1) Sell prebuilt decks for a flat cost - Each expansion features prebuilt deck recipes, and while they aren't always great they are a good starting point for many archetypes and include key legendaries and epics. New (and returning) players are granted one of these decks for free, so someone has calculated the value of these decks for promotional purposes. Offer these same decks for a flat cost that is less than what it would cost to craft from typical 40 dust pack disenchants.
2) Rewards based on variety, not time spent - You are already tracking each time a card of a certain type is played (e.g. divine shield minions) for achievement purposes so make this the XP generator. Playing multiple decks with varieties of different cards should be more rewarding than spamming the same cheap aggro deck over and over or roping every turn.
3) Sandbox / testing mode - Give us a play mode where we have access to every possible card, including tokens and uncraftable cards. This would allow people to test rare or unusual interactions which leads to better bug reports and quality control. It would also let people try out new decks ideas without having to invest in crafting costs. This mode would obviously be limited to AI or friend's list opponents.
4) Sell both individual cards and packs - Blizzard's other games already have systems in place that offer specific pieces at full cost or random pieces at lower cost (e.g. Titan Residuum vendor in WoW). This same model can apply to Hearthstone where the overall value of a pack is greater but if all you want is a single card you can purchase just that for dust value. You might want to buy 80 packs if your goal was to amass a large collection, but if you only wanted 2 new cards from an expansion to add to your current favorite deck, you could obtain those for much less.
5) Separate professional mode clients - The developers already have their own client where animations are sped up 40% and probably have other features. This should be spun off into is own client targeting streamers or professionals and offer features like faster animations, a text combat log, fast forward combat resolution, better integration with addons, etc. Normally forking a client increases development costs but you can offset this by selling the professional client standalone. You could even expand this to offering clients for specific modes, for example a Battlegrounds client. Imagine if Microsoft sold only a single application called Office and you had to download all 50GB to just use a word processor. We are fast approaching this with Hearthstone.
If you think there are better ideas, post them. If you see someone post specific demands, upvote them. That's the only way things will ever start to change, both in the subreddit and with the game itself.

2020.11.27 16:13 KinoAndCrabLegs Persona 5 From a Noob

When I played Persona 4 Golden earlier this year, I fell in love with some aspects (the characters, the atmosphere, the music), and tolerated others at best. With the advent of Persona 5 Royal, and my cousin letting me borrow his PS4, I found myself swept up in the hype of a game that blew my expectations away and then some. It truly felt like someone at Atlus had been looking over my shoulder while I played the previous game and took detailed notes about what to improve in the sequel. I can honestly say that it’s an upgrade across the board in just about every way that matters to me, and I can wholeheartedly, without any caveats, recommend it to anyone with an interest in this series. If you like anime, if you want to get into JRPGs and don’t know where to start, or maybe you’re like me and you just thought the memes and fanart were cute, you owe it to yourself to give this game a shot.
It’s enough for me to want to go back and retroactively make this my game of the year for 2017, which was a pretty stacked roster in itself. Everything seemed to come together, the right team at the right time with the right idea, to catapult what was a pretty niche franchise into AAA stardom to rub shoulders with the Zeldas and Marios as among the best in its class. Even now, with the release of Royal, it’s easily my GOTY now, due in some part to the anemic list of releases, but that’s another topic altogether. I’ll try to keep this review/essay focused on the game itself rather than just comparing it to 4, but given that it was my primary entry point to the series, I will make frequent references to that game, so SPOILERS for both ensue.
What I found most immediately charming about Inaba was its sense of time and place. The shuttered businesses, the barren main street, the anxious town with the specter of death over it while a group of carefree teens made plans to go to the mall on their clamshell flip phones captured a dichotomy that I hadn’t felt explored in other games. Whether the developers intended to or not, they created a late 00s period piece that resonated with me quite strongly as someone who was roughly the same age as the protagonist in that time. I would imagine sentiment would follow for those younger than I, as 5 is much more proactive and hyperactive in its presentation. The game is a feast for the eyes, proving beyond the shadow of a doubt that a cohesive style and aesthetic will far outlast the shiniest graphics, as it makes the most of its visuals to draw the player in. The UI itself is a masterclass in action, there are entire games with budgets and teams that dwarf Persona 5 that don’t have as much personality as the pause menu in this one, the way the icons jiggle and pop practically begging you to click on them next.
The other pillar holding up its remarkable sense of style is the music, and between 4 and 5 I’m genuinely torn as to which I like better. 5 definitely has the edge when it comes to production value, but the jazzy, upbeat soundtrack is also more content to sit in the background and provide an accompaniment to the city living, in contrast to 4’s loud, gaudy pop earworms, each one an anime opening in the making. While it takes center stage during key moments, most of the time, the soundtrack is this constantly undulating rhythm in the back of the player’s mind, rising and falling with the action, keeping the pulse going like the click clack of wheels upon the train tracks. Undoubtedly, my favorite song is Beneath the Mask, a melancholy tune that sounds like a rainy night and a dying cigarette in an ashtray, the perfect soundtrack to a place of sanctuary after a long day. The nebulous subject of its lyrics leaves it open to many different interpretations: a well-deserved rest after great triumph, or crushing loss and setback; a private moment shared between two lovers, or a reflection on the emptiness of the room itself, alone with one’s thoughts. It’s hard to compare soundtracks in a year with Nier Automata on the roster, but 5 absolutely passes the “would I listen to this outside of the game willingly” test. Just as Heartbreak, Heartbreak became synonymous with me doing laundry and other chores over the summer, I came to associate Beneath the Mask with my commute in the fall, under cover of darkness. I think it’s special when you can tie a game to a certain moment in your life, and this one certainly did it for me. Overall, it was the slower paced, more moody tracks like this and Sunset Bridge that stuck with me, proving that music does not have to be a spectacular front and center banger to play an essential role in the drama, though the game has its fair share of those (Life Will Change, Last Surprise, and Rivers in the Desert being standouts).
The change in setting is not limited to the audiovisual aspects, however, as the game itself feels faster and more anxious, almost oppressively so, as moving to the city from the middle of nowhere would feel. Gone is the lackadaisical, laid back intro of the prior game. Here, you are thrust into the driver’s seat immediately, before the game splashes water in your face and asks you where you were on the night of the 12th between the hours of such and such. I thought the opening hours of the game were a fantastic way of setting the stage, as we’re wowed by the prospect of Ocean’s Eleven but anime and then brought back down to Earth via the interrogation as a framing device for the story. I like it because it splits the story into neat chunks, each Palace its own arc. Coming out of Persona 4, my two biggest questions were A: If adults like Adachi are aware of and can manipulate the Shadow World, why have there been no formal attempts to study it? And B: What if the Investigation Team didn’t stop after uncovering the killer?
I was delighted to discover that not only does 5 address these topics, but the latter defines the conceit of the whole game, placing the Thieves’ idealism for a better world against bigger and bigger targets, a fitting escalation for a big name sequel. The former question is a major subplot in the story, though the answers I came up with in my head were grander than what ended up being presented. I appreciated how this turn of events resulted in the gang being more proactive, i.e. seeking out targets to punish them for their misdeeds, rather than purely reactive like the kids in 4, who had to wait for each kidnapping to happen in turn before acting. Persona 5 is a much harsher world in comparison, one that demands that its protagonist hit the ground running and get going fast. You’ve been sent to juvie on trumped up charges, nobody wants you around, you’re shoved into an old, dusty attic as a ward of the state, and everyone is looking for an excuse to get you expelled or worse. Even walking down the hallway invites comments from onlookers and rubberneckers who aren’t sure yet if they want to look down on or admire you. All this set dressing contributes to a city that feels just alive enough to allow your imagination to color in the margins and give a much better impression of a cramped metropolis with a beating heart than a big open world would.
It’s natural, then, that the protagonist would come to identify with others who fell through the cracks like he did, others who people judged by the masks they wore other than their true character. With Yu it seemed like he immediately formed lifelong bonds with the first three kids he met on the way to class. Ryuji’s and Ann’s friendships feel like they develop more naturally, first as a result of being backed into a corner together with nowhere to go, and gradually getting to know each other as people. It’s as if Atlus took a good look at the broad archetypes they established with Yosuke, Yukiko, Rise, etc and realized them into more fully fledged characters. I loved hanging out with all of the Thieves, getting to know their inner lives and it pained me that I couldn’t max them all in the allotted time. It’s impressive that they managed to build up such a strong portfolio of confidants with their own storylines and character moments without stepping on each other or retreading old ground. I even liked hanging out with Mishima, probably because he’s the one closest in spirit to what fans of this game are actually like, as opposed to Joker’s more aspirational mystique.
For the longest time, I thought that the first Palace was the game’s high point. At no other point in the base game did I feel like the player motivations and the character’s motivations were so intertwined on a base level. Kamoshida is such an excellent starting point because right away, you hate him on multiple different fronts: for antagonizing you (and by extension, the player), for being an abusive monster to your friends and classmates, and because of the corrupt authority he represents and the power structures that enable him, nurturing the seed of rebellion planted within Joker and his friends. It’s not a coincidence that all of the Thieves are latchkey kids with absent/aloof parents. That neglect, intentional or otherwise, fostered a lingering sense of ennui and discontent that lets them get wrapped up in the Thieves’ romantic struggle against societal norms. It’s an adventure, and you want to get carried away in it just as much as they do, that investment feeling all the more bittersweet when it comes crashing down around them. It does a brilliant job of selling the illusion of putting the player in the driver’s seat and letting them dictate the pacing of the plot, all by changing a few of the circumstances around how the Palaces are tackled, and though you are given an abundance of activities to dedicate your time towards, I never felt confused about what I should do, because they were all equally viable methods of advancing the player’s goals.
Since I brought up the Palaces, I should mention perhaps the single biggest improvement over the previous entry, and that is the way this game handles the dungeon crawling aspect of the game. For starters, Palaces/Dungeons are actual discrete spaces now with proper level design (!) that draws upon the chosen theme in a meaningful way to make them all distinct from one another. It’s a huge step up from ten floors of the same randomly generated slog with different wallpaper every single time. Traversal is overhauled, and the quarter-assed stealth mechanics from 4 are realized into the ambush system here that makes entering combat feel like a tactical decision on your part rather than having Yu swing his bat in the vague direction of an enemy. Joker and the Thieves move at a brisk, animated pace, zipping around between hiding spots and looking for an angle of attack rather than blundering through a bunch of copy pasted hallways. Other big, big pluses include: not having to fight every single enemy to squeeze out the xp needed to fight the boss, not having to fight trash mobs at all with Ryuji’s level 7 perk, having more items and perks to mitigate the war of attrition on your SP early on, there being an actual reason to go out of your way to explore in the form of Will Seeds. The list goes on. And if you do want that down home grind, there’s always Mementos, which I actually enjoyed my time in, largely because of the aforementioned reasons. Side quests in 4 always amounted to talk to this random guy who asks for a vendor trash item you probably got rid of when mashing sell all at the ironworks shop. Now they manifest as minibosses in Mementos, which ties into the whole vigilante justice hero of the people angle that the Thieves thrive on. Again, taking something that kinda worked before and improving it by marrying the themes and the gameplay. Also, everyone gets guns, which would be great on its own, but is amplified by the fact that they actually do work.
Not all of the Palaces are bangers, I think the 2nd and 3rd suffer the most from lackluster villains but they do their job as a sort of training arc showing how the Thieves escalate in terms of targets and notoriety as well as expanding their own roster. Futaba’s Palace is a highlight and one of the better story dungeons, and I appreciate how it broadened the scope of the setting by showing that people had indeed attempted to research the Metaverse in an academic fashion, but were struck down by some shadowy force. This is where my brain took over and started imagining much wider implications that the game ultimately didn’t explore, like the government having access to a black ops unit of Persona users who could change hearts and inflict mental shutdowns at will, but I’ll come back to that later. Suffice it to say that Sae’s Palace is another excellent addition with a dope theme, but what follows immediately after doesn’t so much bring the story to a halt as much as it gets t-boned by a mile long train of awkward, clunky exposition.
You ever play an action game, and right in the middle of it, the game stops and shows you a cutscene of your character doing all these badass choreographed moves for minutes on end, that you would never be able to do in the game itself, that’s just this long, laborious display that leaves you thinking “wow, that looks cool, I wish I was playing that instead of just watching”?
This is the narrative equivalent of that.
All along, we’ve stuck by Joker’s side. Very occasionally, the game will shift perspective to a fly on the wall of the villains so they can twirl their mustaches for a few but by and large, the player and protagonist are one in the same from beginning to end. They even go through the trouble of giving him amnesia at the start so that your Joker can retell the story as he remembers it. This is important because it establishes that the player knows what the protagonist knows, and vice versa. This whole segment throws that all out the window and reveals that Joker and the rest of the Thieves colluded in a secret gambit to expose Akechi that the player had no knowledge of and could not contribute to even if they wanted it. It’s like the devs rip the controller out of your hands and tell you to keep all limbs inside the car because you’re on their ride now and you’re going to experience it exactly as we intended even if it completely divorces the player from the shared experience of the protagonist by shoehorning all this shit that supposedly happened offscreen into what is supposed to be the emotional climax of the story. It feels like an overcorrection of the equivalent moment in 4, except in that one you had to choose the exact string of responses the devs wanted lest you be booted to the credits. Here, it’s just flashback after flashback crowbarred into the story, sometimes in succession to such a degree that I began to feel like it was losing the all important emotional investment built up. Narratively, it’s supposed to be a moment of triumph as everyone congratulates Joker on pulling off his masterstroke idea of faking his death flawlessly but in practice it feels like that meme of Michael from the Office shaking hands with his old boss, the player taking credit for something they had no part in, but would have liked to be in on. It’s not a dealbreaker, but it is annoying considering how closely intertwined the journey of player and protagonist had been up to that point
Another nitpick before we move on from here, I really thought that Joker’s constant flashbacks to the inciting event where he punched Shido but was unable to remember him were building to something. I legitimately thought that Shido had masterminded this scheme where he got Joker enrolled into Shujin and purposefully nudged him towards radicalization and forming the Thieves so that he could have a crew of fall guys to take down in his ascent to the top. I expected that Joker’s amnesia was a by-product of this mind tampering, but apparently he’s just an idiot who has this chip on his shoulder when it comes to authority but for some reason is unable to put a name to the face of the man who first put him behind bars. I also thought it was a bit cheesy that Shido had ties to literally every major villain they had faced up to that point. By the end I was half expecting him to reveal that he was the one driving the car that ran over Kawakami’s favorite student back in the day. Some real Reverse Flash “IT WAS ME BARRY” shit going on there, but I digress. Shido’s a good villain, and a fitting end to the escalation that the Thieves had going. I also loved the development that even though Shido had a change of heart, the movement behind him was still going, because the systems of power that allowed him to get where he was and exercise his will ran deeper than any of the Thieves knew, and it would take more than changing one heart to turn things around this time.
What follows is pretty iffy for me. I’m a firm believer that all the supernatural Metaverse stuff should take a backseat to or be a vehicle for the interpersonal drama between the characters we’ve come to know. It’s flavor text and set dressing, important to the story and atmosphere, but not its focus. When you try to put backstory and worldbuilding into the foreground, especially in the drama first storytelling that Persona is going for, you end up with Yaldaboath, a boring ass cup in the basement of Mementos who speaks in riddles and soaks up damage like a sponge. Nothing about this fight feels as climactic as the last because the player had no idea they existed until about 15-20 minutes ago. I liked the reveal with Igor and the conversations with the crew in the Velvet Room, but beyond that a confrontation with a shiny god of Some Abstract Proper Noun just feels really lame without any requisite emotional context. Capping him in the face with a three story Glock was pretty cool though, so props for that. And, it sets the stage for the Royal content, the single best arc in the game.
I’d heard the third semester in this game hyped up before I got into the series, and it deserves every bit of praise. Again, it’s like someone at Atlus predicted my comments on the previous final boss and tailor made an arc full of closure and emotional resonance because the characters coming into conflict with each other are people with complex relationships and not just jumbles of polygons with a health bar and an ominous monologue. I love the It’s a Wonderful Life AU aspect of the dream world, making it genuinely difficult to try and turn people like Ann away from this place where they could forget their awful traumas and just be regular teens. I loved seeing Kasumi go from a pretty bland and boring confidant to literally rediscovering herself and becoming a wholly realized person for it. Akechi’s presence in this arc is my favorite in the game and his snide comments and deliciously over the top ferocity in combat shot him up the charts of best characters now that he was able to comfortably go mask off. It’s fantastic hearing him address the Thieves with previously barely concealed and now open contempt, but he reserves the worst barbs for Maruki, who’s so kind and affable that it almost makes you forget how crazy his plan is. Instead of lecturing you to death or getting too heady, he appeals to the same ideals that Joker did in forming the Thieves, creating an interesting foil with motivations that are arguably more noble than the main characters, but that alone cannot justify what he’s done. It’s a tricky situation to unpack, but I think it’s easily the best written part of the game, and left me feeling whole and satisfied by the end.
As exhaustive as this may seem, there are still things left I haven’t even touched on, like that one honestly fucked up scene where Joker leave Ryuji to be assaulted for no reason, or how much better Akechi is than Adachi even though they fill the same role of cop who's actually a secret incel, or the hundreds of smaller quality of life improvements that make the game less of a chore and more of an addictive rush as you get swept up in this other world. My total playtime clocked in at just under 130 hours, an absolutely massive jump from the 75 or so I’d spent with 4, after foolishly assuming I’d knock the sequel out in about a month or so. When I finished the game, I was exhausted, I was ready for it to be over, and wanted to move onto something else, but I was also wistful. I carried within myself the knowledge that I would never play it for the first time again, and consciously or unconsciously I would spend the next few weeks looking for something to fill the Phantom Thief shaped hole in my chest. I had so thoroughly been engrossed in this world and its characters that I don’t quite feel ready to say goodbye, even if the prospect of NG+ still seems daunting. As in some of the best games, like Nier Automata or Red Dead Redemption 2, this first full playthrough feels so complete to me, that it almost seems wrong to go back and disturb the world as I left it, because I played my part, and it’s at peace now.
I had assumed that I would hate an ending where, after everything, Joker moves away. Why, after so much investment and time spent building friendships that would last a lifetime, would he simply go back to nothing? I wasn’t prepared for how natural it would feel. How everyone expressed their desire to grow as people, first beyond the labels others ascribed to them, and then the label of Thief they applied to themselves, to become men and women who could affect society in their own way, wholly distinct from any god given supernatural power. It felt surprisingly mature for the series to advocate for a break from escapism, and instilled within me a desire to move on as well. I have no idea what Persona 6 will look like, but it’s going to be hard to replicate the leap in quality, as they’ve outdone themselves to create what’s become one of my favorite games.

Want a tip on how to get wallet funds on Steam? Pay for it. There is no such thing as free wallet funds or free game codes. Never login to a 3rd party site if it asks for your password and authenticator code. If someone adds you as a friend and sends you a website or says they are from Steam/Valve or says you've been reported, they need to check your items, etc: block and report them, it is a scam. No Valve employee will ever speak to you directly through chat, they will only talk to you via a support ticket, and there's no such thing as a Steam Admin, and Volunteer Steam Moderators will not contact you about account issues.
Secure your account and educate yourself on scams!

2020.11.21 22:03 kotsumu Technical thoughts about PLTR

Hello guys, I've been wanting to expand about my thoughts on Palantir. I have been trying to contain my excitement for awhile because I honestly didn't want this company to become a meme or anything (I totally did not help with some of my posts about it) but I do want to share my understanding about the tech and this company. I'll try to refrain from posting any useless information that's just going to come off a pumping the stock from now on.
Let me just start this off by requesting that we leave out the ethical and morality discussions and focus on the technology. I do not know enough and thus do not deserve to have opinions regarding the philosophical aspects of the technology. The only thing I can say for certain is that for better or worse, this technology will change lives.
I'll begin with the basics, I'm going to try to simplify it as much as I can, but it does help if you have some general understanding about software and how a computer works....

Natural Language Processing

Imagine that we have a big email data set, terabytes of emails collected. We want to find out whenever a person named John Doe, who lives in Iowa, was mentioned or involved in an email chain. We task a data analyst, engineer, or a developer to find all this data points.
No problem, I'll just write up some code that identifies the email by the sender and recipient with John Doe's email address.
A naive approach. This approach would definitely find emails that involved John Doe but completely miss out any mentions of John Doe that did not have him involved the in the email chain, not to mention, you would need a list of all of John Doe's emails which may be information that is already hard to come by.
Ok, I can cover my bases by searching for the word John Doe in the subject and body email.
Great, we pulled in more data that could be emails talking about John Doe. Then you realize the fact that people call him Johnny Boy, JD, Joe, Mr. Doe, Doe Man.
Well shit, how can I possibly cover every permutation of this person's name? Not to mention, there seems to be other John Doe that doesn't seem to be the same John Doe who lives in Iowa that we are looking for coming back in the results.
Hopefully you can start to see the problem. It would be impossible for a programmer telling the machine what to look for to come up with every possible permutations and edge cases to find the information we are looking for. You think to yourself, we're going to have to hire thousands of people to read through terabytes of data to identify the emails we want. Then you start to think, how would a human actually identify John Doe from text and determine that THAT is the John Doe we are looking for? The answer is in the context of the email. If the person is talking about Johnny Boy's burger shack in Iowa, it's likely the John Doe we're looking for. But if the person is talking about Mr. Doe's investment firm in Panama, then that's probably another Mr. Doe (though a pretty shady one if you'd ask me).
Now, how do we get a computer to understand a context of words, how can we transfer that skill to a computer program? We can use machine learning. Humans can identify examples of John Doe and teach the machine that this is what we are looking for, through a feed back loop we can continually improve the understanding of this "model" and teach the machine to identify the specific block of information we are looking for.
Obviously this doesn't just work for names. You can be specific as you want and as general as you want. Say phone numbers, (111) 222-3333 can be written as 111-222-3333, 111.222.3333, 111 222 3333, 111 CAB-3333, and the list goes on.

Natural Language Understanding

Ok, we now want to find out where he's been and what he has been up to. How we an engineer go about solving this problem? Again, there doesn't seem to be an easy way to accomplish this. We know how to identify entities, we can actually apply the same concepts we used to teach the machine how to identify John Doe.
He's booking a flight to Moscow for 01/02/2023 
We already know that "He's" is referring to John Doe. We know that "Moscow" is a location through Natural Language Processing and we know that "01/02/2023" is a date through named-entity recognition. We can teach the machine that this is an example of travel and label this whole sentence as a "movement". We hope that the machine can identify and trace is location just by all the cookie crumbs left behind. We can then build a map of all the places he's been to by tracing all the identified "movement" points, sort them by date grab the locations.

Why Palantir

A lot of the criticisms have detailed how a lot of this technology is open sourced which is true. A lot of this tech are still popular academia research topics. This also means that there are progress being made to it every single day. However, the concepts and technology may be open sources but the features and methods you build around it determine the effectiveness of the product. There is a popular saying in academia that goes like this.
Garbage in, garbage out
Using the same technique in training your models may yield results but doesn't technically mean they would yield great results. Generating a good model has a lot to do with how clean your data is, how well you tuned the learning process, how well your features and weights are built around the algorithm.
When government/businesses consider using these products, they usually create a bake-off and analyze the performance and features included in each product. They use metrics like precision/recall that determines how many data points that the machine identified from the truth set and how many data points that the machine missed. These metrics are important to the clients for many reasons one of which is because it can potentially mean they miss or waste time on data points that lead them to nowhere and is particularly important for applications like defense. If the government picked Palantir, you can be confident that they are the top of their class.


A lot of posts have mentioned that Palantir sends consultants and is therefore a consulting company. Which I don't disagree that their "Forward Deployed Engineers" are technically consultants. However, these consultants DO serve a purpose. The concepts and applications here are still being discovered in the market today. I'd like to think of these consultants as technical sales consultants. Companies today don't necessarily understand the value of their data and what can be done with it. A lot of their data are just noise today. They store it and are unable to do anything with this. It is necessary for someone with the skillset to come in and build the foundations required/clean up the data for companies to start leveraging it. However once the value becomes visible, it seems to be a very sticky proposal and becomes evident that it is a leg up among their competitors. We don't currently have enough talent in the work force today that have the ability to come in and shift the data analysis landscape. It is also very expensive to do inhouse. Having Palantir come in with their consultants is really just these companies dipping their toe in to the ocean for the benefits that is to come.

Last thing

Hopefully this gives you guys a bit more information about Palantir's tech and realize that you guys can see how a little bit of creativity in extracting information from data using the tools Palantir provides is game changing.
I will leave you all this this xkcd comic that I found was very representative of the problem at hand. Sometimes, it can be difficult to explain the difference between the the easy and the virtually impossible.

2020.11.16 17:51 Remount_Kings_Troop_ Subreddit Data Analysis - Part One

Subreddit Data Analysis

Summary of Project

Captured all ~169k Posts and 2.7 million comments from the /worldoftanks subreddit from April 2011 through April 2020.

Analysis Releases

The subreddit data analysis will be broken into three separate postings which will cover:
This particular post will cover the Posts submitted to the /worldoftanks subreddit.
However, before I get into those details, I will first share how the data was obtained and processed.

Data Source

I owe a huge debt of thanks to Jason Baumgartner (Stuck_In_the_Matrix), who runs the website, which is a big-data storage and analytics project, and who moderates the /pushshift subreddit.
Essentially, he makes a copy of all Reddit posts and comments by querying Reddit's API, and makes that data available for download. He is the proverbial genius whose shoulders I have stood upon, and his colossal efforts make my modest data project possible. As a result, I support him on Patreon.

Data Privacy

I understand that many Redditors have privacy concerns about their data being stored/viewable on the internet, and some have taken active steps to remove their data (comments/posts) after a period of time. The /pushshift subreddit does have a thread where you can request that your data is deleted/no longer saved in the future.
Note: Even if you delete your comments and posts periodically here on Reddit via a script/bot, your data will still be captured by pushshift because it captures the data almost as soon as it is created.
You may also DM me, and I'll delete your data from my data set too.

The Data

The Reddit data is stored here:
The monthly submission files contain all posts made in ALL the 2.2 million reddit sub-reddits since Reddit's inception in January 2011, and through April 2020. The monthly subreddit files ranged in size from 0.15 MB to 9.1 GB.
New months are added on no particular schedule.
The files are compressed in the bz2, xz, or zst format, and I used Peazip (for zst) or Winzip (for bz2 and xz) to unzip the JSON data (and yes, I actually bought Winzip).
Once decompressed, I needed to separate out the /worldoftanks data from the non-worldoftanks data. This is no small task when an 8.9 GB compressed file becomes a 97.6 GB uncompressed text file. Fortunately, I found a pretty amazing text editor named EmEditor, which can open very large text files. It was also able to split the larger files into more 'manageable' 10 GB chunks that my laptop could process without choking (Note: Once I got my new PC with 32 GB of RAM, I no longer had to split the files). I was able to use EmEditor's Find capability to search the files and Extract each line in the file that contained the /worldoftanks subreddit identifier (t5_2s113). For example, the March 2018 Reddit Submissions file contained 96,490,262 records, and only 1,856 (0.0019%) were from the /worldoftanks subreddit.
Once extracted, I had to convert the JSON-formatted records into Excel. To do this, I used, which charges $10 per month if you want to convert over 1 MB/day.
Notes: You'll need Excel 2007 or greater to get past the 65,536 row limit that exists in previous versions.

Number of Posts Over Time - Analysis

/worldoftanks posting activity seems to be correlated with the academic schedules followed in the US and Europe.
For example, in 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2018, you can see a general increase in the late-spring/summer months (when US students are on summer break), and then a decrease starting in September thru November (corresponding to the US Fall semester which runs mid-August through December), and then a peak in December when US students are on Christmas Break. 2016 and 2017 don't show this trend. 2019 has a spike in May and June, but the general trend is an increase from April to August.
Interestingly, during the US Spring semester (which runs mid-January through the end of April), posting activity increases from Jan through April in most years.
EU-country's academic schedules are much more varied than the US, but my research indicates that many EU Fall school breaks run from mid-Dec - early-January, and EU Spring breaks runs from late March to mid-April.
The observed data supports an EU fall break in December, and the EU Spring break may help to explain the increases frequently seen in March, and the frequent peaks seen in the month of April.

Types of Posts

There are two types of posts: text posts, where you write the content in a text box, and link posts, where you provide a link to another website, image, video, etc.
Of the 169,737 posts in the /worldoftanks subreddit, 92,803 were self posts (54.7%), and 76,934 were link posts (45.3%). This designation is maintained even for deleted posts.

Link Posts

Reddit records the domain for each linked post. Of the 76,934 linked posts, the post count of the 25 most-linked-to domains totaled to 69,983 records, or 91.0% of all linked posts.

Average Post Karma by Domain

On a domain basis, I calculated the sum of the karma for all posts for that domain, then divided by the number of posts for that domain, in order to calculate the average karma for posts from that domain.

Edited Posts

Of the 169,737 posts in the subreddit, 12,620 were edited after being created (7.4%). The remaining 157,117 (92.6%) were not edited after creation.

Gilded Posts

It appears that the ability to award Gold to posts was added in September 2012. From September 2012 through April 2020, 112 different posts received 124 Gold awards in the /worldoftanks subreddit. Three gilded posts were from deleted users.

Users who have had more than one gold post

Of those 112 gilded posts, a few users authored more than one:

Posts with the Most Comments

A good post elicits a strong response in the form of comments. Not surprisingly, most of the posts with a high number of comments are giveaways:
Note: The current number of comments shown will not match these counts due to comment deletions that occurred after the post data was captured.

Posts with Highest Karma Scores

The karma numbers displayed on a post are not "real" numbers, they have been "fuzzed" to prevent spam bots from figuring out exactly how Reddit's karma system works. So, if you click on a link below, the karma score may not match (because it was a fuzzed number when captured, and it could have been upvoted/downvoted after it was captured).

Karma by Posters

If we take all of the posts of a user, then add up the posting karma on each of their posts, I can come up with a total posting karma number that can be used to rank the users to determine who has generated the largest amount of posting karma in the subreddit.
The total amount of Karma earned by all non-deleted users is 4,355,083, while deleted users generated 93,917 karma, for a grand Karma total of 4,449,000 post Karma.
Here are the top ten Karma-earning Posters in /worldoftanks:

Average Post Karma vs Average # of Post Comments

I calculated the average post karma and the average # of comments, over time:
Year Average Karma Avg # Comments
2011 8.2 11.6
2012 11.9 14.6
2013 13.2 15.6
2014 12.8 19.6
2015 13.8 20.3
2016 13.8 17.5
2017 17.6 18.1
2018 27.7 17.2
2019 49.7 15.2
2020 67.4 13.0
The total correlation between the two data sets was a low negative correlation of -0.342489168.
However, when I graphed the data, something interesting was revealed.
Average post Karma/average # of comments: Image, PDF
The data had a low positive correlation between 2011 and the start of 2017 (0.69), but then becomes negatively correlated (-0.99) as the Average post Karma increases substantially starting in 2017 and into April 2020.
I considered the fact that it may be related to the subscriber count (more eyes = more upvotes), but the subscriber count increase seemed fairly linear (unlike the average post Karma value):
Subscriber stats: Image, PDF
Note: This subscriber data was obtained from [subredditstats](
My Statistics class was a LONG time ago, so I'd welcome thoughts on what may be causing a higher average post karma.

Downvoted Posts

It appears that Reddit removed Downvotes and Upvotes from the API in December 2016 (and thereafter just provided the combined Score value). However, here are the 10 most downvoted posts prior to that date:

Post flairs

In June 2015, our moderation overlords rolled out a system that allowed redditors to chose a flair for their posts (e.g., Arty, Survey, Giveaway, etc.). In April 2019, they released a subreddit redesign that allowed redditors to filter post flairs, essentially allowing redditors to see what type of posts they would/wouldn't see. The moderators also have the ability to fat-finger a value and do so with comments such as, :D, Answered, Rant, Abusive Post, SirFoch Drama, etc.
To date, there have been 29,270 flaired posts, and they have been distributed as follows:

Next Steps

Either an analysis of the 2,745,764 comments, or the 78,764 unique Reddit users that have posted or commented in the /worldoftanks subreddit.
I would also welcome requests and suggestions on different ways to analyze the data.

2020.11.16 09:24 tomcx Question about shortcut with html

Hi there,
I made a meme generator that looks like a Dutch website ‘De Speld’. You choose a picture, enter your text and a few moment later you have an meme.
But I have something that I can’t fix. I have a white line at the top of the image. It doesn’t matter which image I choose. I already set the border to 0. But that isn’t working.

Welcome back everyone. We're back online! Below is a full changelog; however, right here is a photo of how old reddit looked before. You can navigate to to see how it looks now. It's been a long two weeks and I know you guys missed us. The hundreds of mod mails we got let us know that. Anyways. Onto the changelog:

/insaneparents changelog 10/31-11/14

Wiki Changes:

Bot Updates / Changes:


Misc Changes:



I saw in a lot of threads where some people were speculating we closed based upon some bullshit reasons like the election or some other "politically" driven reasons. We simply close every year around this time. It's to gear up for the holidays. As you guys know that's a stressful time of the year. You just have to deal with your families. That's our peak time of the year, but we gotta overhaul some stuff. A million+ person sub can't have broken CSS, broken bots, and distracted mods for two weeks. So, we take a break and make these changes every year. We did it last year, we did it this year, and we'll do it next year. We get feedback over the year, things break, and there's massive changes we wanna make. This is always the best time to do it. We wanna strive to change and make things better. No other sub does this stuff because they're just content just coasting along. We're not. We're listening. We'll listen. We'll incorporate feedback. It just takes a while.
Don't forget to head over to /insaneparentsmemes and sub there. You guys have a meme sub now. Have at it.
EDIT: Fixed some complaints about the title colors, colors of names in threads, and a CSS issue with the wiki we noticed on old reddit.

2020.11.07 05:00 major_breakdown [OC] Mike Conley – Season Evaluation (with clips)

[OC] Mike Conley – Season Evaluation (with clips)

Hi! Welcome to my player evaluations. This is a new series I'm starting, taking a top-down look at all the players on the Jazz roster. You might have seen my posts on Jordan Clarkson and the off-season additions, and I'm looking forward to starting this new project(sale of the team notwithstanding, this sub has been dead lately).
I use lots of stats as well as film to make my evaluations. If you have questions about stats, I link to explanations in the sources section. Feel free to comment any questions you may have as well.

TLDR at the bottom.
This picture speaks a thousand words. It’s an image of disappointment, of a lost a season, of a shot at a championship. I looked at it a lot before sitting down to write this. I’m going to avoid hindsight bias as much as possible in my evaluation of our point guard Mike Conley. I walked away from that series wishing he would have done more, been the star I had hoped he’d been when I wrote about his addition in the offseason. The truth is, if Mike makes that shot this article might be different. He’s a hero, that shot goes down as one of the best in Jazz history, and the whole of the NBA looks different.
But he missed.
And here we are, with a 34 million dollar point guard and a lot of questions. I’m going to remind you as I’ll remind myself that we were one shot away from beating a western conference finalist and that’s not a reason to panic. It is reason to evaluate what we have. Let’s get to it.

Mike Conley's Impact - Star or Role Player?
The table below shows 3 catch all metrics commonly used to evaluate players. If you want an explanation on how they are calculated, I link to them in the sources. They player impact plus-minus(PIPM), real plus-minus(RPM) and RAPTOR.

O-PIPM -0.33
D-PIPM -0.27
PIPM -0.60
O-RPM -1.00
D-RPM +0.20
RPM -0.80
O-Raptor +0.30
D-Raptor -1.45
Raptor -0.95

The reason I started my evaluations with Conley is our championships hopes hinge on his performance. We were close, but we need a second offensive-hub, another engine to drive the offense when Mitchell takes a break. That #1 offense after the Clarkson trade is a spectacular number, but the truth is far less promising. With 5 of Mitchell-Conley-O’Neale-Ingles-Bogey-Clarkson, we had lineups that were top 5 in net rating, and one that was the best. In the league! Better than any Lebron-Davis lineup, better than any George-Kawhi lineup, even the Serbian-God Jokic and his never-miss partner Murray. We have one of the best-top-6’s around.
So what the hell? Where’s my championship u/major_breakdown? I’m glad that you asked. It’s a short walk down reason-lane that we arrive to dreary realization. We had the worst bench in the league, bar-none. I won’t regale you with the numbers, just know a team of traffic cones and dumpster fires could take Tony Bradley and Georges Niang off the dribble.
I’m concerned about that. We have the MLE, we have trade options, but this post isn’t about that. It’s about my favorite non-jazz player prior to his arrival, Mike-F’n-Conley. Our bench can be improved, if Conley can keep those bench lineups afloat. Long gone are the days of Favors keeping our elite rim protection when Gobert goes to the bench, don’t look to the hills for Ed Davis to put a lid on the rim. Defense isn’t the answer here. What would be far easier is to take our number #1 offense and keep it at least average when our bench is on the floor. Conley has experience doing this. His Memphis impact numbers were great. Check it out –
Memphis numbers

O-RPM +1.84
D-RPM +1.54
RPM +3.38(9th best PG)
O-PIPM +2.8
D-PIPM +0.3
PIPM +3.1

That’s the Conley we need. If he can get back to form, we have a chance. To be clear, I am not saying Conley hasn’t been producing on some level for us. He fits in our starting lineup perfectly. He is an excellent tertiary offensive player. He hits open 3’s with ease, he moves the ball, he plays passable defense, and he is a good playmaker. But that’s not what we need from him, it’s not why we traded for him. We traded for him to be able to stagger our stars to maintain an effective team for 48 minutes.
The next section I will go through Conley’s player grades via the BBall Index, his efficiency by play-type, along with some clips to further illustrate what Conley did on the floor this year. Though his impact was not high, he still has the talent to make a difference. In fact, in some areas he was among the best in the league.

Isolation PPP(Points-per-possession) 97th(!) percentile.

Most of you have never seen these stats before, so I will give you a layman’s breakdown of what this means when evaluating Conley.
The most important number is iso impact, which means if you take Conley’s isolations and give them to an average player, how much better or worse does he perform. In Conley’s case, he performs very well. This isn’t a surprise, as his player grades in Memphis pointed to that before he arrived there. What’s interesting about Conley is how bad he is at finishing. We are talking Rubio levels of missed layups. What makes him good in iso, is he is efficient with his chances.
You wouldn’t believe him to be one of the most effective one-on-one watching him. He can’t finish at the rim. He doesn’t have the automatic 15-ft jump shot of Chris Paul, no turnaround like Kawhi, he doesn’t have size and speed like LeBron, he isn’t a bitch like James Harder(FTR), even with the end-to-end speed someone like John Wall has, he doesn’t have the vertical athleticism quick guards usually do, so what’s going on here?
Conley is smart. It’s why he I loved watching him in Memphis. He has mastered several foul drawing moves that every good vet keeps in the back pocket. Here he gets past the defender and uses his body to draw contact.
And here he does it again, but with an excellent finish. In straight-line race Conley can blow past his man, and use that advantage to create contact. It's awesome. He also has a lethal step back.
Conley was our most effective iso player. That is saying something, and it’s a great skill to have come playoff time. During the regular season though, isolations are one of the least efficient styles of offense and we tend to lean heavily on the pick-and-roll. Still, maybe when we have Conley run the bench we should look at some isolations for him.

Playmaking - Improvement Needed
Pick-and-roll Ball Handler PPP - 42nd percentile
This is where I expected more from Conley, and where I think it’s hurting our second unit. He doesn’t create for others, at least not to the extent I would have believed before the season. I’ll address the most important stats in that picture one-by-one, then we will talk about the pick and roll.
This playmaking grade at the bottom is a one-stat metric for all things passing for a player. It adjusts for the quality of their assists, as in whether they lead to a 3 pointer or free throws, how many potential assists they generate, whether teammates score more with a pass from Conley or from someone else’s. It’s an impressive metric.
As for the details, Conley’s raw assist generation is the reason this stat is lower than expected. He is below the 30th percentile in role adjusted assists(point guards should get more assists than centers), potential assists/100 passes, and passing creation volume, which measures how many passes lead to shots. Conley doesn’t create opportunities.
Another stat that is measured in that grade is passing efficiency, which looks at high-value assists compared to turnovers. The objective of this stat is to see if a player making passes that lead to efficient scoring without turning the ball over. Conley grades out so poorly in this stat, in just the 17th percentile. Wow.
The main takeaway from these stats is Conley doesn’t make a lot of passes that lead to shots, they are just passes for the sake of passing, and when he does make assists, they aren’t that high value. The one stat he is good in, passing creation quality, is more representative of our offense, as it shows that Conley makes passes to high-value areas on the floor, like the corner and the rim. The issue is they don’t turn into points.

Let’s look at some clips.

The first few are Conley missing open men to take his floater. In watching the film, it drove me crazy. I clipped three but believe me this was a frequent occurrence. Here Conley misses Ingles in the corner and Bogey on the wing before launching a floater. Here you can see it again, with Royce and Bogey in the corner. Mike ignored Royce a lot, Royce is open Mike, just look at him!
Conley can make good passes, he just needs to better. Here’s a few I was impressed with. Here Conley finds Tony Bradley with a nice bounce pass. Here's one of the nicer corner passes I saw all season to Ingles. And finally, here's a nice Gobert connection for a throw down. Speaking of Gobert, let's talk about Conley being a below average guard as the pick and roll ball handler.
The first issue, is Conley has a floater problem. This meme sums it up.

The pick-and-roll is what the Jazz subsist on. Conley never seemed to click with Gobert, and I’m hoping next season gives them more time to gel. Joe Ingles assisted Gobert 95 times this year compared to Conley’s 47. Conley did miss some time, but his connection with Gobert was weak. I’m not suggesting we take the ball out of Conley’s hand and give it to Ingles, though I will say Ingles was negatively impacted by having the ball less. I just know that Conley must improve. He’s the one we will be counting on when Mitchell goes to the bench.
And yes, some of that number is affected by having Ed Davis offensive extraordinaire and Tony-jumps-two-inches-off-the-floor-Bradley as his rolling partner. But he and Gobert have to get better.

I don’t have much to say here. Conley gets to the rim, but when he does, he does he fails to do anything with it. He lacks vertical athleticism to finish over taller defenders, and he has no reliable moves once he gets into the paint. His main shot is the floater, which he puts in 31% of the time on a few attempts per game. Bad, bad, bad. Here’s an example of the Conley Special. Here's him attempting a shot over the second-coming of Hakeem Olajuwon, Frank Kaminsky. And finally we have another finish over a stout rim protector Jonas Valacunias. I'm starting to see why he shoots so many floaters...not to be too hard on Mike, but when you finish at the rim like Rubio, some light roasting is warranted.
What he can do is finish in transition, something he should look more to do to get easy buckets. He was in the 85th percentile in transition PPP.


Pick-and-roll PPP Defense: 14th(!) percentile
Isolation PPP Defense: 81st percentile
Spot-up PPP Defense: 50th percentile
Hand-off Defense: 61st percentile
That pick-and-roll number cannot be ignored. Conley was defending those possessions 5 times a game, and we were just hemorrhaging points. Looking at the film, Conley has the effort, but he has no length to get back in and bother a play. Even if he gets back, the opposing player has superior position and simply shoots over him.
In iso, Conley is quick and keeps the ball contained. He does have a weakness though and it’s his size. Any player can bully him, even some of the smaller guards in the league. In going back and watching the games, we always hid Conley. Every close game in the 4th quarter he wasn’t near the teams best perimeter guard, he was stuck on the least effective perimeter player they had. That’s not a problem in the regular season, but in the post season he will be hunted.
Let’s look at some more film. First we have Landry Shamet(!) powering through Conley with ease. Then we have Shabazz Napier, one of the smaller guards in the league, unbothered with a hand in his face. He took Conley off the dribble the same way Shamet did not long after.
The bigger problem still was his inability to get back into a play after getting screen. Conley doesn't have an effort problem, he just can't affect the play once he gets back. He doesn't have the length or the athleticism. Watch Bledsoe simply shoot over Conley after being screened out.
As we saw with the Jazz in prior seasons, the strength of a good defense is having no weak points. With our commitment to Bogey, that’s not going to be the case for awhile, but I would think at this point in his career Conley grades out as a negative on that end.


Do you hear that? It’s the sound of a thousand media pundits canceling Mike Conley. It’s the purring of the ESPN trade machine, as Jazz twitter fans speculate on how a Conley for Giannis deal might pan out. It’s the sound of doubters, the sound of haters, the sound of losing.
But Mike Conley is a winner. He’s a leader. These stats look bad, but he has something stats don’t evaluate. If that shot goes down, I’m singing his praises as the guy who came through when we needed it most. If there’s one thing I’m sure of, Conley is working on his game now. He’s getting better. He has the drive to win. He just saw his brother Gasol get a title, and he knows how close this team can be. Mike Conley hears it. And next season, he’s going to prove them wrong.
TLDR: Writer sees some bad stats but using confirmation bias decides all will be well and the Jazz will win the title next year.
Real TLDR: Mike Conley had an OK season, and we need more from him.

2020.11.06 18:41 ohvalox Subreddit Moderation Feedback Thread #14: Worlds, Region Baiting and Context

Hi everyone!
Worlds is over! We want to take this opportunity to congratulate DWG and the LCK on reclaiming their spot at the top. Also shout-out to the LEC for finally succeeding to avoid another 0-3 loss in the Finals!
Anyways, now that we all have the time and the sticky space, here is our Subreddit Moderation Feedback Thread number 14. You can find the last one here.
We did not really change any big rules or policies in the last few months, nonetheless there are some topics we would like to focus on:
About that last point: After the infamous "Kai'Sa is hot" incident I was so pissed at the mods, that I called them "incompetent", "fucking pathetic" and told them to start using their brains. But somehow I became a mod myself, and being on the other side changed my views.
Now I feel bad when people complain about us, because I know exactly how they feel and I want to do something about it. I believe that the best way for us to gain your trust is complete honesty, and that's why we compiled this document. I know it's a huge wall of text, and of course we don't expect you to read all of it. But hopefully this can help you gain a better understanding of our rules and actions.
What do you think of all that? We're very interested in what you want or expect from us in terms of transparency.
Of course general feedback is welcome too!
Feedback is one thing that can help us moderators know what we are doing well and what we can improve upon. This thread is for you to give any and all feedback to the mod team of /leagueoflegends. What do you like about the subreddit? What do you dislike? Any ideas, any improvements, anything at all, feel free to share it here!
In order to generate meaningful feedback, please try to give constructive criticism i.e. provide an idea or solution instead of "I don't like this." Please state clearly which rule/aspect of moderation/the subreddit your post refers to at the start of your comment. We may not reply to every single one here, but we will definitely do our best to look at them all. Please keep all top level comments as feedback, which means if there are memes/jokes, they will be removed.
This thread will last for approximately a week, so be sure to get your word in before it goes!
We're excited to hear from you!
Thanks guys, enjoy the off-season, good luck in reaching your desired rank for this year and, most importantly, stay safe and healthy out there!

2020.11.05 15:24 500scnds [Table] IAMA brain surgery survivor and I no longer feel fear because my right amygdala was removed along with 10% of my brain. (pt 1/2)

The AMA ended with:
Alright that's it for me, I can't believe I just spent 4 hours answering questions haha
but was followed by another question:
This is interesting my wife is going to have the first surgery probes in her head on Monday she never thought to ask if they put one hole in and spread the wires out or multiple holes
One big hole
Questions Answers
Have you seen the Mindfield episode on Vsauce about fear? There was a girl that had a damaged amygdala. She claimed that she couldn't feel fear, and so scientists did a bunch of tests with her to map out fear responses. What they found was that nothing phased her, until they got to suffocation. They simulated it by increasing her blood's CO2 levels to safely simulate suffocation without actually preventing her from breathing, and she became absolutely terrified despite being perfectly safe. They found out that the fear response from an increased level of CO2 (suffocation) is centered in the brain stem while everything else is in the amygdala. The whole Mindfield series on Vsauce is fascinating and worth watching, but when I read your post I instantly thought of that episode. Ooh I will watch that! Thanks!

Suffocate yourself and let us know what you think. Edit: please stop asking me for free nudes guys Instructions unclear, experienced autoerotic asphyxiation and got the best orgasm of my life.
the below is a reply to the above
Forget what the instructions were, can you just write down how you did it? Step 1 get epilepsy
step 2 get brain surgery,
step 3 do what strangers on the internet tell you to
step 4 Profit!
the below is a reply to the second answer
Guy had a chunk of brain gouged out and still has more sense of humor than most people i've meet... Thanks! People would never guess that I have brain damage.
the below is a reply to the original answer
can you share your thoughts after? I have some insight! For context, my seizures were not your typical convulsions, it was all fear and dread. The bigger seizures gave me bigger fears, and one was that I am about to die. Not like "one day" or "I am going to get killed by __" I just had this sense that I was going to die. One of my first seizures confused me. I thought "I am going to die" and I was like "oh yeah whatever it's just a dream" and then realized it wasn't a dream. In a panic, and I started thinking "How could I be about to die? There's no external threat."
So I was quickly rationalizing which external threat was going to kill me. Carbon monoxide? Stroke? Heart attack? So I went outside, did the FAST stroke test, checked for signs of heart attack... and I texted my girlfriend "call 911 if I don't text you in 5 minutes, I don't know something just feels really wrong, might be carbon monoxide or something."
So the idea that the right amygdala has to work to identify the external threat, whereas those CO2 neurons just provide fear via the brain-stem/midbrain is especially interesting to me.
It was useful to see that my hypothalamus is what generates adrenaline, and I still have that. I imagine that is why I'm still getting adrenaline in some situations. I am curious about the people with amygdalae doing better at the CO2 breathing experiment. However, I think what's unexplained there is why I can still voluntarily hold my breath just fine. Like my brain stem isn't forcing me to surface when diving under water (I like to snorkel).
I think they've missed something: If we're gonna play with injecting CO2, they should play with directly stimulating the amygdala. Electric shocks to the amygdala showed s
Third: I am not tough enough to say "I'll fucking kill you" if a guy held a knife to my throat.
I was walking through a really bad area a few months ago and 3 "tough-guy" type dudes tried to surround meme to "ask me something" but I just kept walking (as I've learned to do growing up in NYC). However, I didn't think I could beat them all up or anything and I did check to see if they were following me, and I decided to avoid that block on the way back. Funny thing is that I didn't feel "fear" I just thought "Oh well, I guess they're going to grab me and empty my pockets and steal my phone. I hope they don't hit me very much. What should I do/say?"
Do you feel the absence of fear is more of a benefit or hindrance in reaching the highest and best version of yourself? Does it make you more vulnerable to being cheated or tricked? Do you have to spend more time thinking over whether to act or not? That's a tough one because many things have changed beyond just fear. I want to lean towards it being better because my day-to-day life is more pleasant without the fear of my inevitable death clouding my thoughts. However, I also am aware "ignorance is bliss" and so many more. I would much rather be fearless than have too much fear, but I think having some fear is healthy.
Since you mention cheating, I will share that I was married when I developed epilepsy. We were on a two-month trip through Europe. I broke my ankle, so I suggested my wife continue to the trip and she did. She asked my permission to see an ex (whom I had met a couple weeks before) and I happily granted it, and well... she slept with him. I stand by that choice of mine being the "right" one, but I certainly was plenty trusting back then as well.
Still, I think I am more easily abused in relationships now, but that's not "fear" as much as it is "harm avoidance" (another function of the right amygdala). Since surgery I've (unfortunately) been happier in an abusive but exciting and passionate relationship than in a simple romantic relationship. Pre-epilepsy I used to be quite indignant about the slightest mistreatment, but my first partner whom I met only a month after brain surgery was quite intensely abusive, and I begged and crawled for her to love me while trying to make it work for 2 years.
However, what complicates things is that I also don't have the level of confidence that I used to have. I don't really know all of the reasons why, but I am less confident in both myself and my opinion than I used to be; Albeit I may have been a bit too confident in my opinion before.
the below is a reply to the above
I don't want to stick my nose in your love life but I think you did nothing wrong. I consider trust in a relationship essential: it makes you vulnerable but at the same time paves the way for a deeper and happier connection. Yes I agree it was the right choice, I was just illustrating that I both was and am very trusting
the below is a reply to the original answer
I wonder if your heightened tolerance for abuse has something to do with your heightened empathy. I’m horribly empathic and I think it made me easier to manipulate emotionally. Yes 100% I do
Do you find that you have think about things much more; because you can't use those biological warning signals? Wow that's a thought-provoking question! Thank you, I had never considered that until now. The answer is kind of "yes" but it's more to say that I should think about some things more because I don't feel the warning signals. For example, last month I was hiking in Utah and I started to go somewhere really dangerous out of curiosity but started to slip and had to think for a minute before I decided I should turn around, and I very carefully backed down.
However, I also choose to leverage my freedom from the more primitive biological signals and carpe diem, like when I went on a two month road trip with someone I had just met. I've been that "say yes" type for the most part ever since.
Unfortunately, at first I was more likely to have blind faith in people because I hadn't really figured this out yet. Someone told me I was getting a good deal, so I just assumed I was because I didn't feel any red flags. Little did I know he was trying to scam me out of $2,000. Luckily I learned my lesson without losing the money thanks to a friend. I have to think a lot more about why I trust who I'm trusting now, and it's still weird.
I'll continue to search within myself and my experiences to ask myself your question, thank you!
the below is a reply to the above
tbh it sounds like a lot of people nowadays should be getting your surgery lol Yeah actually people have volunteered to have part of their amygdala removed due to anxiety issues, although that's hard to do or even illegal in most places.
the below is a reply to the above
I wouldn't mind doing this. Amygdala hijack has ruined so much for me. Edit: Are you sure that you're not having a focal seizure?
the below is a reply to the second answer
If people approach you randomly (ie initiate contact) in public, be wary of them trying to fleece you or convince you to take a detour. X10 if in a city or touristy area. Act like a New Yorker and tell them to fuck off. I mean, I am a NYer lol born and raised in lower manhattan
I work with someone who had his entire (I think) amygdala removed. He is a very smart guy, but his tolerance for BS is very low. Have you noticed a lower threshold for frustration? Also, have other things been affected, like forming memories? When you think about a time when you were afraid in the past, what's that like? Can you remember the feeling? 1. My speech inhibition is lower, but that frustration level is complicated by medication. People with epilepsy are often prescribed a medication called "keppra" which induces something we call "kepprage" which sounds like what you're describing. I was more easily frustrated before surgery, while on Keppra, but I am (and have always been) a VERY VERY patient person.
2. Yes, memories have been a big problem. I confuse the "who" and "when" of memories VERY often, and it's been problematic in the romantic world. A girl I was dating definitely didn't like it when I recalled doing a kinky sex act with her, when it was actually with someone else who looked like her.
3. Yes I can remember the feeling, in fact I can feel it when I remember it strongly enough. I never thought about it that way, but it's especially easy to remember fear because the seizures themselves were all feelings of fear (and I had hundreds of them).
the below is a reply to the above
Hey OP, I was just diagnosed with a generalized epilepsy so I now take Keppra. Glad to know of someone else who takes it, and makes me feel better that I'm not the only one having troubles with aggression on it. I also take Vyvance for ADD and it somehow seems to counteract the aggression somewhat. Thanks for the AMA, hopefully life improves now that your surgeries are done! I wanted to ask about your life with epilepsy? How long have you had it and how did you see your seizures change as time went on leading up to your surgeries? Hey! Keppra side effects get better over time if you work hard at it, it took me about 1.5 years to figure it out. Try to notice yourself getting angry, and imagine yourself before taking keppra getting angry about this, and if you would get angry even before, how angry would you get? That helped me control the kepprage. I'm off Keppra now, and I don't really know that I've changed much other than improved memory.
the below is a reply to the above
Thanks for the advice! I tell my wife and son to leave me alone for two hours once I take the pill, since that's when I become most vulnerable haha. Also join epilepsy !
the below is a reply to the second answer
Unprompted advice, so take it or leave it. I have memory issues caused by a neuromuscular disease. Solidifying episodic memories is a challenge for me. I've found that journaling helps. Each night I write down anything of interest that happened that day. Sometimes it's one sentence, sometimes a whole page, doesn't matter. It seems to make a slight difference in how well memories will "stick". Just an internet stranger's two cents. Thanks for the AMA, interesting stuff! Thanks! Your advice made me realize that I don't find it problematic enough, at least not enough that journaling would be worth it. It only causes an issue less than once a month, so journaling everything for a month to hope that I wouldn't cause a problem would be a bit of overkill for me.
the below is a reply to the above
Without journaling, how can you be sure it isn't problematic more often? Serious question. Because my memory isn't *that* bad, and I mean problematic in that I caused a negative experience for myself or another person, which I certainly do remember quite well.
the below is a reply to the second answer
Is the difficulty of who and when different for memories from before the surgery and after surgery? Yes, MUCH worse after the surgery. It's truly embarrassing and the most problematic result of the surgery.
the below is a reply to the original answer
wait did the seizures cause fear BEACUSE they were in the amygdala? Yes
the below is a reply to the original answer
That's weird, I'm on Keppra and have never heard of "kepprage". I have zero side effects, as far as I can tell. I said that myself for the first year, and coming off of it I don't feel different.
the below is a reply to the original answer
The aggression is exactly why we declined Keppra for our toddler’s absence seizures. She is the sweetest little thing and any increase in rage/angeaggression would just feel like we had a different kid. As mentioned I am a very patient person, so I would say that I was uniquely suited for taking Keppra. I wouldn't suggest it for a toddler though, as strong behavioral changes could affect your relationship with her. I recommend Vimpat and Lamictal.
the below is a reply to the original answer
Can you elaborated on your “seizures themselves bring feelings of fear”? What does that mean? The seizures were not convulsive like you might think, they were small seizures originating near my hippocampus and activated my right amygdala kind of like a frightening experience would. The entire seizure was JUST feelings, mostly the feeling of fear.
Have you observed a change in your overall personality as a result of this? Do you find your decision making process to be different than before? Are you leaning to be more risk acceptant in matters of finance, professionally, and in speaking your mind (less inhibited?) 1. That is the hardest question I've tried to answer since forever. Like, I've certainly changed over the past 2 years since surgery and 4 years since being diagnosed with epilepsy, but like... how much of that is just growth from all of the experiences I've had? I'm more careful now, less arrogant, more emotionally available, more considerate and empathetic, more talkative, less confident, and all sorts of changes. I can only clearly say that the talkativeness and the fearlessness is clearly surgery-related.
2. Yes, I find myself considering my choices for longer and depending less on my "gut" feelings on something.
3. I'm actually quite risk-averse financially and professionally because I am in debt due to being unable to work for an entire year after diagnosis (was an Uber driver and in my final semester of college when I was diagnosed). Since I am conscious of my health risk, I want to carefully plan my finances so I can do things I love (like travel). Otherwise, I speak my mind more often and I'm certainly less inhibited, but I still refrain from being mean. The lower speech inhibition expresses itself in that I interact with strangers more often, and I tell dumb irrelevant stories more often.
Have you picked up any new hobbies since surgery that you may have been to scared to try in the past? No, probably because I was actually quite the risk-taker before with skydiving and bungie jumping. I also was an amateur pilot and flew open-cockpit experimental airplanes.
Interestingly, another person asked if I still get adrenaline rushes, and that made me realize that I actually have been doing those things less often since the surgery. I wonder if it is because of the lower adrenaline rush...
Unfortunately many of the dangerous hobbies aren't safe for me to play with because of my epilepsy. I was a passionate amateur pilot and novice scuba diver, and I have chosen to give them up for the foreseeable future because of the chance my epilepsy may come back. There's a video of a guy who was 6+ years seizure free having a seizure while skydiving. Everyone called him an idiot, well... I get why he tried.
the below is a reply to the above
Are you still allowed to pilot, after your surgeries? Kinda, it's a gray area because its a dont ask dont tell for the very small ultralight airplanes
Do you feel lighter? How did post op recovery go? How long were you in ICU? Is there physical or mental therapy you're doing? What sorts of adjustments have you had to make? Have you binge watched anything good lately? 1. Hah, no, but I do "click" sometimes when going down stairs because my upper right temporal muscle is tangled with the titanium braces on my skull.
2. Physically, it went well. I walked out of the ICU in 2 or 3 days. However, I was very sensitive and disturbed by loud noises and big crowds for the first month. I was also very introverted, and had a hard time keeping up conversation for the first two weeks. I continued to be bothered by loud noises (my former seizure trigger) for a year. Beyond that, I developed ADD and I'm now on Ritalin. However, no therapy was necessary.
3. Funny you ask the last two questions together because one big difference is that I no longer watch TV. I find it uncomfortably boring to watch TV now, even though flashing lights was NEVER a trigger. I can play video games and watch the occasional movie, but the idea of watching (and not interacting) sounds EXTREMELY boring and unpleasant to me now.
4. The biggest adjustment I had to make was to give up my life's passion of piloting. That's because of epilepsy, not the surgery. Otherwise I just don't drink alcohol to play it safe. MY doctors say "limit to one or two drinks" but I am just abstaining entirely because I used to get a mini-seizure (aka simple-partial or focal-aware seizure) before I had even finished a bottle of light beer.
the below is a reply to the above
You said in an earlier comment you became more talkative as a result of the surgery, and you said you also take Ritalin now. I know my add medication makes me more talkative, so I wonder if that is from the surgery or the medication? I'm actually mildly less talkative on Ritalin. I was WAY more talkative right after surgery, and I didn't start Ritalin until 2 years after surgery, so I am quite aware of the change :) Thanks tho!
the below is a reply to the above
How did being talkative work with being introverted and not being able to hold conversations? The severe introversion only lasted about a month after surgery, then I started dating haha
the below is a reply to the original answer
Don’t worry. Pretty much all pilots in the making from 2018-2020 have now given up on their dreams of finding a job before 2030. You could probably still do your PPL and fly, but you will never be the PIC/fly alone. Haha thanks, luckily I gave up the dream of commercial flying about 2 years before my seizure but I was actually building a kit plane when I was diagnosed. I had sunk over $50,000 into building the kit and learning to fly, and I'm selling it for under $30,000 :(
I actually could continue to fly experimental aircraft with a sport license, but the thought of having a seizure-like sensation mid-air keeps me grounded for the foreseeable future.
So I'm selling my kit. If you know anyone who wants a partially built experimental light sport Excalibur for $14k, let me know haha
the below is a reply to the original answer
haha the tv thing is probably just the add. I have it and I think tv is not interesting at all even though i have all of my brain :) Thanks for adding that! I suspected the ADD. It was weird how I used to watch a lot of "Let's Play" type videos on Youtube and now I can't bear watching them at all.
So do you have any adrenaline rush anymore? Like when you ride a roller coaster or take a corner fast on racetrack type rush? Hmm, I hadn't really thought of it in terms of adrenaline before. I think, generally for those kinds of stimuli, no; At least not nearly as much as I used to if at all. However for anticipation of exciting things like a great first date, yeah, and I get the same or more adrenaline in romantic situations.
the below is a reply to the above
you should really try some adrenaline rush activities. Even just going down hill on a bike or skate board. Id love to hear you describe a roller coaster ride or abseiling. Yeah I think I gotta do a crazy roller coaster. I haven't done one since the surgery.
the below is a reply to the above
For what it’s worth, I recently watched Free Solo and I think you’d find it very interesting. It’s a documentary about a guy who loves climbing huge rock cliffs with no safety equipment. It’s a very dangerous sport. During the movie he gets his brain scanned by some interested scientists and they find his amygdala is incredibly small. So basically, the conclusion is he has a really really hard time feeling fear, but the flip side is that means he also has a really hard time feeling the rush of excitement and thrill that comes with fear. Therefore, for him to feel any thrills in life he must do something very extreme and dangerous while the rest of us can get those thrills doing much safer activities, or we can often even get those thrills just watching others do things like in tv shows or movies. It sounds like you are now very similar to him in the not feeling fear department. Yeah I actually heard of that movie but I didn't know the last part about thirsting for more extreme experiences. I've noticed that some of my excitement for flying has gone away, and I wondered if the surgery was related or if I was just coping with the loss.
the below is a reply to the second answer
What about phobias? Spiders, snakes, clowns, heights etc any changes to what u used to be afraid of? I didn't have any phobias
I didn’t need any part of my brain removed to be talkative AND have a horrible sense of direction. But enough about me. If removing those parts of your brain made almost no difference, how?, how much brain needs to be removed to make a definitive personality difference? Also, how much of your brain was removed % wise? 10% of my brain removed and, well... to answer your "how" question, the rest of my brain is very high-functioning and able to compensate. If you've got a bad memory, you can write things down and get organized. If you have a bad sense of direction, you can diligently focus on recognizing landmarks. My doctors needed to do a neuropsych exam before considering surgery. The exam measures the ability of each individual lobe of your brain. They rated my left hemisphere in the top 1/1000th, my right temporal lobe function before and after to be top 40%, and overall IQ both before and after the brain surgery to be 135. After the exam, they told me that I won't be experiencing much functional problems in the long run because my other lobes will quickly compensate.
In addition, over the years of having seizures my brain automatically started re-wiring the functionality away from the epileptic parts. Thus, even though my right temporal lobe SHOULD be doing all the face-recognizing, my left temporal lobe is helping now as well.
the below is a reply to the above
That is extremely interesting. 90% of the brain and still going strong. How many seizures did you get on a daily basis and when did they start? You mentioned you were an Uber driver, so I am thinking sudden onset? I usually had "simple-partial" "focal-aware" seizures that consisted purely of emotional sensations of fear and regret that each lasted <20 seconds. I had 3 of those a day. I had only one larger seizure, a "complex partial" where I lost about 20 minutes of memory and was mostly incoherent for that entire time. That's how I got diagnosed.
I was 26 when that big seizure happened, so it was somewhat of a sudden onset. Although for 6 months prior to that seizure, I now know in hindsight that I was already having those mini-seizures and thinking they were just anxiety.
the below is a reply to the original answer
Hey if you're still answering I'd love to know, with the rest of the brain compensating will a different part eventually function to induce a fear response or are you done with that for good? I don't know, I've asked doctors but I think it's more likely that what's happening now will just got worse. That is, my negative left-amygdala response will "replace" fear. That is, I will just feel some other feelings more strongly in order to avoid dangerous situations.
Do you still have seizures? How long did the surgery take? Were you awake? I've been seizure free ever since! I was under full anesthesia for both surgeries, but I was awake for 7 days in between them so they could record my seizures. I had probes deep in my brain with wires coming out of my skull, and I wasn't allowed to walk because if I fell I might rip the probes through my brain. It wasn't fun, but I did get prescribed beer on the 6th day because alcohol can (and did) trigger a seizure.
the below is a reply to the above
Can you drink alcohol now? Theoretically I can, but I abstain out of an abundance of caution. I'm aware that there is a small chance that drinking alcohol would cause a seizure, and the longer I am seizure-free the higher chance that it doesn't come back.
That is, if I had a beer and had a seizure, my chance of having a second seizure without a beer goes up higher than if I had never had a beer.
the below is a reply to the above
Is it any amount of alcohol? Like can you have one beer? Or can you drink kombucha? My doctors say that I could have one or two beers but I choose to abstain because it's not worth the risk to me and I've had a seizure from less than one beer before
the below is a reply to the above
Did it tend to happen as the effects of the beer were kicking in, or when the effects were wearing off (due to the minor "withdrawal" and subsequent neuronal overstimulation)? As the effects kicked in, like halfway into a beer
the below is a reply to the second answer
This is not a fear of yours at all? No. To explain, would you bet your LIFE that Donald Trump won't resign before November 3rd? If you win, you get to drink a beer, if you lose, you die.
Are you *afraid* of that decision? Regardless of the likelihood, you can make a conscious decision of weighing risk vs reward without fear.
the below is a reply to the second answer
Have your doctors recommended an amount of time to wait? Does having a beer today vs a year from now impact your likeliness of it causing a seizure? There is no science on that question, which is why I abstain.
the below is a reply to the original answer
You were awake 7 days between surgeries? Did you mistype that, or am I just dumb & missing something? I didn't think it was possible to be awake for that long. Is there like a drug they give you for that or what? Sorry, I realize that it wasn't clear that I did sleep quite a bit despite the fact that I had a couple dozen probes inside my brain and the wires came out through my skull.
So I study the amygdala in the context of pain. I’m interested to know if you notice any differences in how you experience pain? Oooh since you study it I'll give great detail. At first I wouldn't say that my pain reaction has changed, but upon deeply picking my brain I can come up with these thoughts:
1. At the apex of my epilepsy, I broke my fibula while walking through snow. It was a C-fracture, complete separation, but I didn't feel much pain, and I'm not some sort of tough-guy. I could almost walk but it hurt quite a lot to put full weight on it. The EMT thought it couldn't be broken because of how little pain I was reporting.
2. I think I react to slight physical pain a bit slower. When I got bit by a spider a year and a half ago I kind of looked at it curiously to figure out what hurt, whereas before surgery I probably would have wiggled my hand a bit like one does if accidentally touching something that is too hot.
3. I am prone to migraines, rarely, and they are still just as unpleasant and my reaction is unchanged.
Ultimately, after remembering #2 above, I realize that I do react slower and less expressively to the few pains I've experienced, and I am somewhat better at ignoring pain.
the below is a reply to the above
Oh interesting! Thanks so much for sharing! It seems the amygdala, and especially the right amygdala, is important for pain but also the ‘unpleasantness’ that goes along with pain. It’s so cool to hear experiences from real people about this. I think that is in line with my experience with physical pain since surgery. However, FWIW, I still am indignant about not wanting other people to cause me pain or scolding them for doing so.
Probably unrelated and TMI, but I do like a really hard (like as hard as a girl can) scratch on the head and back though. It doesn't hurt, even if I get a scrape, until it gets really raw and starts bleeding.
Fascinating, thanks. I'm super interested in changes to your political stance, in relation to a potential link between active amygdalae and conservatism. Have you found you're relating better to anyone as a result of the surgery? Haha I see you've read the same articles on politics as I have! I went in a Sanders supporter who voted Hillary in 2016, came out a Sanders supporter who will vote Biden in 2020. My Anterior Cingulate Cortex is unchanged, and so I am still very focused on error-avoidance and thus very politically correct.
However, you're 100% on the money with #2. I'm expressing and even experiencing my emotions FAR FAR FAR more than I was before. I have always been especially sensitive and somewhat feminine for a cis-hetero male, but now I'm way more empathetic than I was before. I used to be a very logic-focused person, and I still am, but now I value emotions and feel empathy for people like NEVER before.
One last tidbit on politics: I grew up with liberal parents in NYC. In my high school years I was a bit of a classic white male liberal-libertarian of sorts, but always considered myself a democrat. However, education and exposure to diversity of thought brought me left far before brain surgery. I'm not in lock-step with every bit of the far-left agenda, but I am certainly firmly on the left in the USA.
the below is a reply to the above
Amazing, thank you! I've noticed very gradual changes in myself, but I can't fathom waking up as a noticeably more empathetic person, that must have been an intense first day! And while I didn't mention politics to make value judgments, you sound like a great dude and I'm glad the surgery went well :) Haha thanks! Hearing you use the term "Value judgments" I wonder if you know of nonviolent communication, authentic relating, or circling?
the below is a reply to the above
Hey I'm asking the questions here! Nonviolent communication is the closest thing I have to a martial art, but authentic relating and circling aren't terms I've heard in this context. You have got me googling though, much appreciated. Any recommendations on sources? haha nice, you should check out AR is a practice, and the events invite people who seek deep interpersonal/emotional connection. I find that it's like Yoga for your EQ, and the self-selecting crowd is delightful and I imagine you'll fit in well.
There are a bunch of free and cheap online Authetic Relating (AR) events being held right now, and once COVID's in the past I recommend going to an AR game-night. It's

That’s so interesting! It makes sense that fear leans itself into responses to distrust and dislike things that we don’t know much about. I’m curious if your increased empathy is because you don’t get that immediate fear response that perhaps we were born with to protect ourselves. It’s so sad how much fear is used to fuel hateful ideologies. Yes, greatly increased empathy Edit: I realize I misread your comment. Not sure can say my empathy feels clearly relates to fear, probably more related to lowered disgust feelings about people

Comment deleted by user Did I offend you? Should I have used different words so as not to bother you? Does saying cis-hetero male bother you more or less than saying trans-male or homosexual? If so, why?
the below is a reply to the above
It’s not offensive at all. I just think the fact that you are a straight male isn’t even relevant. I suppose if you were trying to make a statement that things for you changed gender wise, that would be one thing. But should I say I’m cis-hetero female when describing myself? I think it’s over board. And, well, science. You are born male or female. It just doesn’t seem necessary for everyone to to put labels on EVERYTHING. Im glad you weren't offended. I think it's up to you to include what you feel is relevant, but when describing myself as feminine I figured my gender and orientation was useful. Perhaps TMI though, not sure.
I included cis because there are more people born intersex (neither male nor female) than there are redheads. Usually their genitalia are surgically "corrected" though, to fit the binary gender norm. I imagine a person born XXY or with androgen insensitivity syndrome might not be comfortable with the idea that "everyone" is born male or female and might prefer to identify with their born gender. Would that be wrong?
the below is a reply to the above
And I did not mean to offend you by all means. I am a very progressive female nurse. I misread the part about describing yourself as feminine so I apologize. Not TMI at all. I guess I wish we didn’t have to describe things in such detail... I wish we we could all be excepting of everyone with no explanation. I had no idea of those stats. It is interesting to me because I know many more redheads than intersex individuals but perhaps because it’s not discussed openly... wouldn’t it be nice to just accept people for who they are with no discussion and labeling! The Romans had it right (in some ways, haha) I agree with you. In fact, I was born XY male but I was given a very feminine name. I had something like gender dysphoria in my early teens because I was bullied for being "gay" even though I wasn't, and everyone would ask me "are you a boy or a girl?" because of how gentle and soft-spoken I was. I was just too feminine to be a man, apparently.
I still get assigned "female" today because of my first name, until they hear my baritone voice or see me. Therefore I feel empathy for people who don't identify their gender-behavior with their genitals. I agree believe that your genitals should not determine how you can dress and how you can behave.

Comment removed by moderator ICEBURN!!!1111one
Are you any good at video games? I think streaming yourself playing horror games would attract quite the audience, and it goes well with your new found talkativeness. Haha interesting, never thought of that. I gotta pick up Dark Descent again.
Have you been in any dangerous situations that you likely would have avoided pre-surgery? This was one of the main concerns regarding this surgery mentioned to my class by a prof in undergrad. Not really, but only because I was a risk-taking person before. I was scared of my inevitable death but I still went skydiving and went on some crazy adventures. I definitely found myself doing stupid things when hiking, like going off-trail a little too far and ending up somewhere dangerous. I was briefly less avoidant of bad neighborhoods, although I almost got mugged once so I am back to being smart.
I have tested my fear here and there, like looking over the edge of cliffs or putting my hand close to a fire, but I honestly can't think of something dangerous that I want to do. Fear just isn't in the equation.
Is this is your superhero origin story? Maybe! And if the villain shoots me above my right eye and it goes through my head, it won't hit any of my brain, so I'll live, and that's how I'm invincible.
Since part of your right temporal lobe was removed, do you “fear” that you may one day be unable to recognize friends or family without other cues? It actually has gone and will continue to go the other way! It's called "neuroplasticity" and the left temporal lobe will actually start helping or taking over the job of recognizing faces!
The facial-recognition issue was always mild. At worst I needed about 1 second longer to recognize a face than is normal, and it was unsettling, but it's gotten better over time. I still a bit longer to differentiate similar-looking people whom I don't know, but it's not problematic in my life.
The bigger problem has been remembering who I did something with. Like "did I tell you this already?" or "did you do ___ with me?" has come out of my mouth far too many times.
Have you noticed a decrease in intelligence or problem solving ability? My IQ was measured by a neuropsychological exam before and after, and my IQ was actually unchanged! The only issue is memory and focus, which has been compensated for with note-writing and ritalin.
the below is a reply to the above
That actually makes a lot of sense, especially with you mentioning a previous comments that you're a lot more talkative, and your filter is down. These are all side effects of stimulants, and a lot of your behavior changes I myself have had, but without the whole getting 10% of your brain removed I recommend switching to vyanse instead of Ritalin / Adderall. With Ritalin, you 100% know that you are on a stimulant, everything just feels different. If your body was a car, You would feel the acceleration, engine rev up, and bumps in the road. With vyanse, it's a lot more subtle. Like driving an electric car where you don't actively feel like you are "revving up", just notice the positive side effects Thanks, but I became more talkative almost immediately after surgery, Started ritalin 2 years in and it helps with the talkativeness
Why don't you still feel fear to some extent, since your left amygdala is still intact? The left amygdala handles negative stimuli differently, and it's clear that I'm using it to process these stimuli because I'm having a typical thoughtful response where I appreciate the context and make a decision instead of having a reptilian "DO NOT WANT" fear response.
how much are your medical bills? I chose an insurance plan with a high deductible but low out-of-pocket maximum and thus I pay about $3,000 a year total. I usually hit out-of-pocket maximum by April. The biggest cost was the year of unemployment following my diagnosis as I was an Uber driver to support myself through college. I got my degree though, and my job gave me 6 months of paid disability leave for my brain surgery.
Did you still feel like you are "you" shortly after your surgery? I always find the persistence of the self in the face of change to be fascinating. Well I did about 2100 words of writing on that (follow part 0 through 5) Short answer, "there is no spoon"

2020.11.05 00:32 Crystoff I've drafted over 100 decks in the new draft mode. Here's my feedback. (Part 2)

Continuation of Part 1.
BEWARE! Walls of text ahead!
Let's start with some additional points I didn't mention last time:
The draft phase should take into consideration the difference in provision sum between the 3 set of cards it presents. Having 1-2 provision difference is no big deal, having 17 is.
While in the previous post I mainly highlighted things that doesn't work as they should in this one I'll mainly throw in a bunch of ideas that might be worth testing since it's early access and all. Let's start:When sets with key importance like thinning, defenders or resilience (make it it's own category) happen to show up, the choice could be between 3 different variations of said category.I also don't think the above three should show up more than once, but that's a more controversial topic for later.
"Ozzrel's Tasty Snack" category is op in it's current form."Geralt Unleashed" should not exist. One geralt can already win or lose you the round, depending on if you can find him a target or not. Three Geralts are way too much.
When you start your draft, you pick one key importance card at the start - which for some reason can range from Masquerade Ball to Malena in terms of strength - then draft from categories that the game throws at you based on your leader and the chosen card 8 times, expanding the categories it gives based on newly picked cards' tags and abilities. These categories usually consist of one card with provision cost 8 or more and two lower rarity cards.
The problem is that said high provision card might very well be something that requires you to already have a set number of specific cards to function properly, and so when picking it, you are taking a risk that you may not be able to properly utilize it's ability, if at all. This is enhanced by the fact that the game might give you such highly synergistic cards multiple times in a row, making it harder and harder to properly fill out your deck with the cards required (unless you are picking firesworn, dwarves or elves. Then the deck basically builds itself...)
These highly synergistic cards could benefit from one of two changes. They could either use an additional criteria, or the picking phase could change from: 1-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-S to: 1-3-3-3-1-3-3-3-2-2-1-S, with the 2s being a duo card pick (Dulla/Unicorn/Serrit duos or Ozzrel and one of his friends) and the bold 1s being single picks between 3 of the above mentioned highly synergistic cards, depending on your previous choices. The one in the middle being an epic card (200 shard cost) and the one at the end being a legendary card (800 shard cost.) If you picked a lot of elves, it could have Aelirenn. If you picked a lot of dwarves, it could have Xavier Moran. If you picked Serrit+Auckes at the duo card pick, one of the last single pick legendaries could be Letho. I think this would lead to a better system, but it might also take more effort to implement.If we'd want to go with the additional criteria instead:
and so on...
Speaking of categories, the current "Coins" category can include multiple combination of coin generators, coin spenders, Fee and Profit cards. Ideally, you'd want the proportion of coin generating and coin spending cards to be 2 to 1, but you often find them the other way around in this category, usually in the form of Vivaldi Bank/Philippa/Savolla, Caesar Bilzen and a random profit+fee card. I'd advise either changing it or creating different categories for "Profit" and "Fee," with a guaranteed chance for the other to appear if one is picked.
The "Deck Shuffle" category is what you get if you put every card that has the word "top" or "swap" written in it's description. 2/3 of it's contents are meme worthy while the remaining 1/3 might in some cases be good enough that you actually want to pick it, but that might just be a mistake as the game will start spamming this category in your face, limiting your options to only two, hopefully better choices.
Next I'd like to talk about something more controversial that's been bothering me both in the previous Arena's and the current Draft's design, and that's the high number of duplicate cards the game can potentially give you. Playing cards from multiple factions and finding new synergies between them is fun. Losing to triple Resilience or two Ygherns isn't. I'm sure there are people who are absolutely thrilled when they make people forfeit like this, but those people that lost might just give up on the game mode after being on the recieving end of such bs. I know I did after a few too many such cases in the old Arena.
I might play around one Great Oak, but nobody in their right mind will expect two. When I lose to that, it kills for me the very thing I most enjoy about Gwent, which is predicting the opponent's next moves and playing accordingly. At that point I might as well just give up on thinking and start brainlessly throwing whatever I have left in my hand from smallest to highest onto the board, hoping that I'll have more points by the end of the round than the other guy, but I don't want to turn into the average Monsters player.
In light of this I'd like to propose limitations in terms of the number of copies of a card you can get in draft, the same as normal. Two for bronzes, one for golds. The mode would NOT turn into unranked 2.0 as you'd still get crazy comboes by picking cards from every faction, and boy do we have an ample card pool by now.
Of course that would mean changes to a lot of current draft categories, but honestly, some of them could already use that like the bronze deck thinners as they often have a criteria which you might not be able to meet with your currently drafted deck (some examples are at the top.) I'd advise turning these trios into duos with a synergy card in tow instead:
I also had some ideas like the very first choice always being a decision between 3 versions of Geralt, so people couldn't just pick dumb huge units and they'd actually have to play around or bait out the enemy's Geralt which they'll always have, but I'm just throwing this here to the end because I'm way too tired to think about it any harder.
I've spent the last 3 hours writing this, I think I'll to go sleep.
If you managed to read it to the end, thank you, you're a champ!

How to create a draggable and resizable box in canvas ?
I want to create a meme generator on my own , by fetching images from api. I know imgflip allows you to caption meme using api. But, i want to do it on my own. I can write top and bottom text in an image using canvas , but all the meme templates do not go with same top bottom format.
So , I want to create a same draggable and resizable box similar like the image below.

2020.10.21 22:50 GlaciatedNorth Bottom Text

About Bottom Text is a phrase commonly used as the default filler text for blank templates on image macro generator websites. Due to its frequent and unintended use in low-quality instances of Advice Animal memes, the phrase itself has become a staple of ironic memes.
Origin The origin of the placeholder text can be traced back to as early as 2009 when the image captioning website MemeGenerator[1] was created. In the caption-editing mode, the site would automatically populate each blank image template with phrases "Top Text" and "Bottom Text," which could then be customized by the user to one's liking.
Spread As the popularity of Advice Animal memes continued to grow into the early 2010s, along with the adoption of the identical filler text by other image macro generators, such as Quickmeme[2], Cheezburger[3] and Imgur[4] (shown below), so did the volume of incomplete or low-quality image macros in which the "bottom text" would remain unchanged. However, the intentional usage of the phrase in original image macros didn't take off until mid-to-late 2015, around when the concepts of ironic memes and shitposting became recognized as staples of the Internet meme culture, which soon prompted a noticeable influx of ironic image macros featuring the caption "bottom text" as satirical commentaries on the oversaturation of Advice Animal memes and the mainstreaminization of the internet meme culture at large. In 2016, the "bottom text" meme continued to gain traction through ironic meme communities on major social media platforms, such as Tumblr,[5] Reddit[6] and Weird Facebook.
