One of the most convincing arguments for the existence of aliens is the "What is it like to X" questions on Quora. They are out there, and they are trying to learn about us.

Intersting perspective on the current (business) situation with Android.

Last week, Android looked out the window and said. Now I am become Death, the destroyer of brands.

#ti5   #dota2  this pre-game interview hurts my eyes and ears. So artificial, so rehearsed, so out-of-context, so non-gamer. They even put games' names in quotes in the subtitles. Like, «I have played "Counter Strike", "Star Craft", "War Craft"...». Does anyone really enjoy interviews like that...  -_-

I keep getting surprised how seemingly simple mathematical constructs suddenly violate intuition in astonishing ways.

E.g. A real-number line can be thought of as consisting of a countable number of [0, 1) intervals laid end to end. A long line is like a real-number line, but "consists" of an UNcountable number of those intervals.

And then suddenly - every increasing sequence on a long line converges to a limit. Like, this long line is so long that you can pick any infinitely growing sequence on this line and then find a point where it ends.
