I had to google Bollocks to find out what it is.

I did a picture search, because I thought it was some kind of animal.

Now I'm damaged for live. Thank you Lenth.  Angry

I'm not stupid, I know exactly what it means. I was asking if you draw manga testicles, and why specifically testicles, instead of, say, hentai or yaoi, which would include the testicles, but have the rest of the people too. (unless you just draw some sort of weird anime-style characters that look like ball sacks with giant anime eyes and crazy smiles)

Testicles are a kind of people to you?

I've been learning every day that most published research is cherry-picked, irreproducible bullshit. Also, there is no risk involved in building a science career based on such bullshit, and there are real risks involved with honestly designing experiments and reporting all data.

Okay, buddy! Ain't got a clue as to why you decided to pick on me today.  Grin I know exactly what you implied within.

I learned that when everyone starts saying that something is a bubble, and you completely convince yourself it's no a bubble, it may actually be a bubble, except when it's not a bubble.

TL;DR People who claim it's a bubble are like people who claim gravity will make things fall. Yeah, sure, eventually.... when? Should I crawl on my belly till then?

Not sure I followed. You want to crawl around in a bubble?

Don't laugh. Computing hashes can be done like shown in the picture.

Soon, a game will be developed to rival Angry Birds, cleverly dubbed Bust My Balls.

Off the top of my head:

Player one has a tiny ball on their screen, the size of which they can barely see. Upon turning it on, it creates a new ball of which is numbered, in this case it is number 1. Number 1 ball leaves the screens to travel eventually appearing on somebody else's screen who has their own ball showing. The goal is to get a visiting numbered ball to hit your ball so that it can grow in size.

The larger your ball is, the better the odds of having it make contact with a visiting ball. The closer the people are who simply have the app on their smartphones, the more numbers balls will enter your domain.

You're only allowed to send out one ball per day, unless... (still thinking on this)

Since numbered 1 is the first and will be in the wild the longest, it would most likely make the most contacts. Each time it does such, it travels faster through the system, interacting with more users. This does not mean it travels faster across your screen. It's always at the same pace allowing you time to make contact with it. It can only be on one screen at a time.

A website can be created to show what numbered balls you have made contact with, alone with keeping a tally.

Just figured it out: As you level up, you'll be able to send out more numbered balls per day. You also gain points as your created balls make contact.

Further thinking: Assign one satoshi to each created numbered ball. Design the game so that it is very easy to play, but there's a monetary reward each time your created balls make contact. The more balls you create, the potentially more money you can earn, albeit it's only satoshis--at first.

Somebody will have to create and maintain the BallChain to keep track of the contacts/transactions.

And players can purchase access to the big picture: the more they pay, the wider field of view - so they see what's coming, how many players are nearby. You pay to expand your horizon, and thus anticipate, plan, and position yourself better.

Today I learned that BIOS beep codes sometimes work as expected to help quickly find bad expansion slot contact in computer setup.

Early Ford V10 Triton engines are prone to blow spark plugs stripping the head. Luckily I had 9 other cylinders to get me home from being 120 miles away. One solution I read on some forum was to JB weld a value into the cylinder, using it as an air compressor.

Looks like me gettin' a new twuck. To bad all me bitcoins is a tied up in InstaWallet, but at least they is a safe.  Roll Eyes

SHIT FIRE! I just got me a better idea. Why the fuck I no think of it earlier? I know a guy that could fix this permanently without ever having another issue--Ed Trice.
