Error is usually measured as positive, regardless of direction. If I predict one game at -1 and one game at +1, they don’t cancel each other out. So, mathematicians (and engineers, statisticians, etc.) either square the error, (to ensure positivity), or, like TWC does, just takes |error| (the absolute value.

Will they be playing those songs 300 years from now? We’ll see, but I doubt it. Meanwhile, they’ll still be rocking this dude!

Commented on Well Excuse Me, Princess!

It’s actually from Steve Martin well before that. And the incarnation of just “Well, Excuuuuse me” was a meme. Link is just one derived meme from that.

Because, of course, as a girl, when a dude approaches you to start a conversation, you don’t have the time to talk to him.

Blown out of proportion, sure. Should you be worried, yeah, at least a little. Viruses mutate. The more people get them, the more chance they have to mutate. The closer you’re to a dense population, the more people get sick… the point is, be smart and you’ll be ok. Not “it’s hardly communicable, don’t worry about it”.

There’s a whole thing about Virility in men and Smoothness in women that we find attractive in this age in this society at least. Take some classes on evolutionary advantages.

That’s not exactly “clockwise”, that’s left to right.

You know what bothers me also? That the people you send this shiv to also ducking think that those weird out-of-context words are exactly what you meant to say. If you can’t change my words to what you think I meant, maybe I shouldn’t be texting you in the first place.

There are few places harder to get to in this world. But there aren’t any where it’s harder to live.
The average temperature here at the bottom of the Earth is a balmy 58 degrees below.
That’s when the sun is out.
It wasn’t always like this.

Weird Al, in a legal sense, doesn’t have to. And he’s acknowledged that. He gets permission solely out of courtesy, and won’t parody if permission is not granted.

That’s EXACTLY what makes him a great scientist. The open mind to what is observed. While some scientists are blind, and hold fast to doctrine that was taught, repeated observations that challenge long held beliefs change those very beliefs.
