It's just taken from a funny post about a guy's adventures in Skyrim. He downloaded a mod allowing him to become High King and went around ruining all those who insulted him or were just plain annoying. It would always begin with someone just being rude, captions saying (lets take the first picture for example) "This child wants me to lick his father's boots", and then it would turn back to him, saying "Unfortunately, I am the High King of Skyrim" and he would then sentence them to death, or imprisonment for kicks

Do you have empathy for other's suffering? I'm not trying to be passive aggressive about this, I'm genuinely curious because given what you've said,if you truly believe that, you're likely a sociopath.
User avatar #42 - captainfuckitall (10/04/2013) [-]
Again, I do have Empathy for others suffering, but I can only help someone help themselves. If they do not care, then me TRYING to do more than they are willing to try only means I will be wasting energy and they will learn nothing. Trying to tell them yields nothing, as it's like trying to tell a druggie that drugs are bad, you have to show them and have them experience the damage done before they are willing to change.

I do care, I assure you; as a matter of fact I probably care more than most. But I can only go as far as they want to go, if I try to go any farther, I will only be hurting us both.

What's actually being said is this:

Normally, you can always recover information. Look at all the particles in the universe and how they are moving. Reverse all of the directions and forcrs and look at how things move and you will see how things were. You could burn a book, record every atom's motion in the ash and smoke, run a computer simulation, and track the ink particles to their original positions on the page, thereby recovering the text. As long as the results of an event can be observed, the information of the event and the state of things before the event is still there. In classical physics, this is always true. Unless something goes into a black hole. In that case, we can't see the results, so the information is forever lost.

Some theories state that Hawking radiation actually contains this information, but it is still an open question.
User avatar #73 - silkydelicious (10/03/2013) [-]
Just because we can't see the information doesn't mean it isn't there. It has to be somewhere because I don't think it could be destroyed. We just have to look deeper.
User avatar #29 - tittylovin (10/03/2013) [-]
That's not accurate at all.
Black holes are essentially JUST stars that got too massive for light to escape from.
If a black hole appeared magically in front of you, you'd be sucked in, along with our entire solar system.
User avatar #80 - captainfuckitall (10/04/2013) [-]
Actually, no. A Black-Hole is matter that becomes too heavy for the universe around it to support it. The size of the black hole is directly proportional to the size of the matter that broke through, similar to a hole in a trampoline; black holes can apparently also dissolve after some time (also relative to their size). Atoms and Matter do this all the time, they can collide or become heavier than the space around them can support, thus making an impossibly small Black-Hole that goes away before we can even know it's there. As strange as it seems, remember that on a quantum level, particles follow different laws than we do.
User avatar #90 - tittylovin (10/04/2013) [-]
>A black hole is a place in space where gravity pulls so much that even light can not get out. The gravity is so strong because matter has been squeezed into a tiny space. This can happen when a star is dying.

User avatar #93 - captainfuckitall (10/04/2013) [-]
My source is far more recent and has updated information.
User avatar #85 - tittylovin (10/04/2013) [-]
You do realize you're not actually contradicting anything I said right?
Except for the whole "atoms get really massive randomly"
That's complete horseshit.
User avatar #92 - captainfuckitall (10/04/2013) [-]
"Black Holes are essentially JUST stars that got too massive for light to escape from", no, that's not how they work. A black hole is a rip through space caused by supreme gravity, or specifically matter being too heavy to be supported. I covered this in my previous comment.

"If a Black Hole appeared magically in front of you, you'd be sucked in, along with our entire solar system". Also not true, seeing as even at the center of our galaxy exists a super-massive Black Hole, and we still are not sucked in. As said in my comment, the gravitational powers of a Black-Hole are directly proportional to its size, if it is infinitesimally small, it will pull an infinitesimal amount of space in with it. Not even a fingernail, let alone an entire solar system.

Since you're not going to listen to me: Here is the documentary where I saw the information

#20 - anonymous (10/03/2013) [-]
those black holes that are everywhere are also impossibly small.
we simply don't know what happens to the information when a black hole consumes something... correct me if im wrong but if that equation is stephen hawkings he actually thinks the information is simply conserved in a universe without blackholes.
User avatar #77 - captainfuckitall (10/04/2013) [-]
Indeed, he recently altered it, saying that information that gets sucked into Black-Holes is lost UNTIL the Black-Hole dissolves, releasing it.
User avatar #8 - etiology (10/03/2013) [-]
That's actually pretty interesting. It almost makes me think that the key to solving Alzheimer's is discovering that mind is filled with miniature black holes robbing one of their memories, and doctors just aren't looking in right places for a cure.

No, again, wrong. The Half Life lore is retconned all the time, recently being retconned to fit Aperture into the mix as a real company alongside it. It's like Magnusson's look. That was retconned from the original "Einstein" model in HL1.

I don't actually agree with you, of course; but obviously we are getting nowhere and I would rather not have this devolve into ad-hominems. To me, it's just like saying Spiderman and X-Men are connected. Ya they're in the same universe and time-line, and yes they interact at times, but neither comic has a major effect on the other, they just happen to be part of the same company and it was easier to mix them together

But we're not going to agree on this, so lets just leave this conversation on a slightly sour note.

Waste time? What, on Portal? Portal 1 was basically a tech demo to see if the Portal concept could be done. That is why it was originally only released in the Orange Box. They needed to tack on a story so they decided to set it in the Half Life universe.

Of course it bothers me. It's an actual FUNNY picture, with funny material, that can be used in a variety of different wants and nearly always brings a good chuckle with it.

But these people don't seem to understand that if you tell the same joke too many times, it stops being funny and it will make it irritating for everyone. These people are so obsessed with jumping on the band-wagon and getting more thumbs that they don't even realize they are killing what sustains them.

Portal was going to be a standalone but they saw it easier to write into the Half Life lore. HL2 was originally going to start on the Borealis which was a Combine controlled ship for carrying technology from place to place without using their own tech. (Can see why it was removed.) and the idea of Aperture's Borealis came when the idea of it came to an employee who forwarded it. Then, other employees wanted the ship level back and therefore it began work.

Yes, Easter-Egg. If Portal didn't exist they would come up with some other great plot. If Half-Life didn't exist, they would just make references to another game in Portal.

It's a nice touch, but again, neither of them have any effect on the other and I shall maintain that stand-point until the characters interact in some way, shape, or form.

Excuse me, but Portal is in the Half Life universe. They find the Aperture Science shit, the Borealis, by the end of EP2. Though this dimwit is clutching at straws, Half Life 3 has not been confirmed and Portal IS in the Half Life lore.

But that doesn't mean one confirms the other. At most, it's just a cute little Easter-Egg for people who enjoy both games, neither one has any effect on the other.

Eh, I vaguely remember seeing something about it on 4chan, some guy had found this email where Gabe Newell talked about Half-Life 3 (besides, even if it was fake, which it probably was, the Half-Life series is one of the most popular in the western world, on par with Elder Scrolls and GTA, they are ABSOLUTELY making a sequel, they wouldn't pass up that money and those 'confirmed' jokes are getting awfully old)

Yes, Easter-Egg. If Portal didn't exist they would come up with some other great plot. If Half-Life didn't exist, they would just make references to another game in Portal.

It's a nice touch, but again, neither of them have any effect on the other and I shall maintain that stand-point until the characters interact in some way, shape, or form.
#25 - sourpotato (10/03/2013) [-]
Portal was going to be a standalone but they saw it easier to write into the Half Life lore. HL2 was originally going to start on the Borealis which was a Combine controlled ship for carrying technology from place to place without using their own tech. (Can see why it was removed.) and the idea of Aperture's Borealis came when the idea of it came to an employee who forwarded it. Then, other employees wanted the ship level back and therefore it began work.
User avatar #26 - captainfuckitall (10/03/2013) [-]
Okay? Again, if it wasn't Aperture, it would be another company. It's still just a cute Easter-Egg, nothing else.
#27 - sourpotato (10/03/2013) [-]
No, it's not. Because, if it wasn't Aperture, it wouldn't have been a plot point at all. The entire fact that it's Aperture is why it's there.
User avatar #28 - captainfuckitall (10/03/2013) [-]
No, because, again, they thought it would be a nice Easter-Egg

The employee suggested it because it seemed like an interesting idea, and others went along with it because it was. They were obviously going to do something with it or else they wouldn't waste time at all, but they figured it would be a nice nod, so there we go.

Until the two universes actually interact in some way or form (as in, actually change things), they are just Easter Eggs, that's all, and I'm sorry if that upsets you.
#29 - sourpotato (10/03/2013) [-]
Waste time? What, on Portal? Portal 1 was basically a tech demo to see if the Portal concept could be done. That is why it was originally only released in the Orange Box. They needed to tack on a story so they decided to set it in the Half Life universe.
User avatar #31 - captainfuckitall (10/03/2013) [-]
I know, I get that, but that's exactly what I mean. It was MEANT to be a stand-alone, it has absolutely no effect on the Half-Life universe aside from Easter-Eggs, the only reason it was tagged on was because it was cute and easy, and the only reason Half-Life has Easter-Eggs geared toward Portal is because, again, it's cute and fun.
#32 - sourpotato (10/03/2013) [-]
No, again, wrong. The Half Life lore is retconned all the time, recently being retconned to fit Aperture into the mix as a real company alongside it. It's like Magnusson's look. That was retconned from the original "Einstein" model in HL1.
User avatar #33 - captainfuckitall (10/03/2013) [-]
Alright, fine, they're connected.

I don't actually agree with you, of course; but obviously we are getting nowhere and I would rather not have this devolve into ad-hominems. To me, it's just like saying Spiderman and X-Men are connected. Ya they're in the same universe and time-line, and yes they interact at times, but neither comic has a major effect on the other, they just happen to be part of the same company and it was easier to mix them together

But we're not going to agree on this, so lets just leave this conversation on a slightly sour note.

Correction, to see if it could be done in the Source Engine, and because about half the guys working on Portal 1 were brought in due to a previous game, Narbacular Drop, which is where the concept came from.

Maybe because some people care that other's may be hurt and want to save human lives. Not everyone is a sociopath who sees someone's death as natural selection.
User avatar #34 - captainfuckitall (10/03/2013) [-]
So you'd rather have idiots going around, wasting time and money, and not even being appreciative about it? Sometimes it takes drastic measures to make a drastic point, but considering how many accidents there have ever been where people died without helmets and seatbelts, it will take an actual crash or death of a friend to convince them.
User avatar #41 - jukuku (10/04/2013) [-]
Do you have empathy for other's suffering? I'm not trying to be passive aggressive about this, I'm genuinely curious because given what you've said,if you truly believe that, you're likely a sociopath.
User avatar #42 - captainfuckitall (10/04/2013) [-]
Again, I do have Empathy for others suffering, but I can only help someone help themselves. If they do not care, then me TRYING to do more than they are willing to try only means I will be wasting energy and they will learn nothing. Trying to tell them yields nothing, as it's like trying to tell a druggie that drugs are bad, you have to show them and have them experience the damage done before they are willing to change.

I do care, I assure you; as a matter of fact I probably care more than most. But I can only go as far as they want to go, if I try to go any farther, I will only be hurting us both.

I'm pretty sure there is very little emotional trauma with accidental deaths.

User avatar #19 - captainfuckitall (10/03/2013) [-]
Why should I care more about their families than they do? If they are unwilling to be safe, even for the sake of their families, maybe they should die; and sure as hell my tax-payer dollars shouldn't be spent making sure their family doesn't get upset that an idiot dies.
#20 - kolokainte (10/03/2013) [-]
You don't, peoples who make safety laws do

saying people should die so you can have more money is a pretty bad thing to say
User avatar #21 - captainfuckitall (10/03/2013) [-]
I'm not saying people should die so I can have more money, I'm saying that your life is only worth as much as you believe it is, and if you value yourself so little to not follow standard safety tips that could save your life, why should I value you in any way?

If they want to blow off safety, let them, and if they die, good-riddance; why do I have to babysit just because some asshole is lazy and idiotic?
#16 - anonymous (10/03/2013) [-]
It is necessary for those laws to be reinforced. If they wouldn't be loads of people wouldn't care for them or would probably not know about the dangers as much as they should, even people who you think should have a little crash. Seriously I know I sound whiny and I realize this is the internet but please think about this ignorant comment.
User avatar #17 - captainfuckitall (10/03/2013) [-]
You don't seem to understand what I'm saying:

If someone doesn't care about their own life enough to be safe, why should anyone else? If they want to risk a bad crash, let them crash and let them die and let them serve as an example.

My comment was not ignorant. I am well informed and thought long and hard about my opinion, I just decided I don't like stupid people enough that they should die from their own problems.
User avatar #10 - billybong (10/03/2013) [-]
because someone has to clean up the mess afterward, costing everyone's tax money...

Safety laws in general are so your stupidity doesn't disadvantage others
User avatar #15 - thewaronbeingcool (10/03/2013) [-]
You crash with a helmet, an ambulance comes to pick you up and takes you to the hospital.

You crash without a helmet, an ambulance comes to pick you up and takes you to the morgue.

I think the difference in costs would be negligible.
User avatar #22 - billybong (10/03/2013) [-]
I think you missed the point. If you're wearing safety gear (eg a helmet), you're less likely to get hurt. Which means you are less likely to need either a hearse or an ambulance.

Coming off a motorcycle with all the proper safety gear, even at high speed, doesn't mean you'll be injured, even if the bike is totaled. That's assuming you have some distance to slide on, instead of colliding with an object.

I've seen someone come off a bike at 80km/h but fortunately they had full gear on and didn't have an object in the path they're sliding. He had nothing more than bruises, grazes and what looked like rope burn from the slide.

I'm not saying he was guaranteed to get out of it safely because of the helmet and other gear, but he wouldn't have been able to get up and keep riding if he wasn't wearing it at the time. (the bike was pretty fucked up, but managed to get him home)
User avatar #9 - dedaluminus (10/03/2013) [-]
Helmet laws are silly. They do help in accidents, but they also often obstruct hearing and peripheral vision, leading to more accidents happening in the first place. However, wearing a seatbelt helps you maintain position, and thus control of the vehicle, in many accidents. That can help a minor accident not turn into a major accident. So seatbelts affect the safety of more than the seatbelt driver, and should thus be legally enforced at all times.
#27 - stratotastic (10/03/2013) [-]
If a helmet obstructs your peripheral vision you're wearing it wrong, I have a full face, I can hear and see in it fine.
User avatar #11 - billybong (10/03/2013) [-]
If you're sliding along the bitumen at 60+ km/h after coming off a motorbike (maybe you hit a bit of oil, and not another car) you'd be thankful they made you wear a helmet. But you might be wishing you wore some more protective gear if a helmet is all you've got.

Now a car is a whole other scenario (which I agree with you about the seatbelts)

TLR Helmet laws are NOT silly at all, not even when cycling
User avatar #12 - dedaluminus (10/03/2013) [-]
See, though, helmet laws only affect one person. Because the action of not wearing a helmet only affects the person in question, I don't think they should be mandatory. Still a good idea, though.
When I ride, I wear full leathers, but only a half-cap helmet because the full safety helmets muffle my hearing and disrupt my peripheral vision.
User avatar #13 - billybong (10/03/2013) [-]
I'll admit I don't ride motos, I'm just going off 2nd hand experience off close friends who have come off and only come out okay because of their gear. So I'm not talking from experience.

But it comes back to what I said to captainfuckitall in #10, someone would have to clean the corpse up, and it'd cost taxpayers money.

I'm not sure if wearing a helmet causes more accidents (it might), but it's bloody good defense if you're in one.

I can't imagine that a half helm would provide very much face or neck protection should you get whiplash or land face forward, but as you said, it's your risk to take.

I have no idea what the US state laws are, but in AUS we only need a helmet, full or half is fine, but full is recommended.

I should get my bike license one day....

Actually it is. They are two separate games, made by the same company. Saying that a Portal reference in a TV show means Half-Life 3 is confirmed is like saying a new Elder Scrolls game would confirm a new Fallout game
#21 - sourpotato (10/03/2013) [-]
Excuse me, but Portal is in the Half Life universe. They find the Aperture Science shit, the Borealis, by the end of EP2. Though this dimwit is clutching at straws, Half Life 3 has not been confirmed and Portal IS in the Half Life lore.
User avatar #22 - captainfuckitall (10/03/2013) [-]
But that doesn't mean one confirms the other. At most, it's just a cute little Easter-Egg for people who enjoy both games, neither one has any effect on the other.

Eh, I vaguely remember seeing something about it on 4chan, some guy had found this email where Gabe Newell talked about Half-Life 3 (besides, even if it was fake, which it probably was, the Half-Life series is one of the most popular in the western world, on par with Elder Scrolls and GTA, they are ABSOLUTELY making a sequel, they wouldn't pass up that money and those 'confirmed' jokes are getting awfully old)

It's ironic you call me tryhard, considering you just went through the time to thumb-down my last 20 comments as if it would have any effect on me personally or my ranking here. It's also odd you call me stupid, considering you were the one who read it uncorrectly. And I think the fact I have so many comment thumbs anyways (including my own jesus comment) speaks to the point that I am, in fact, quite hilarious. "Feelfag", is that supposed to be a derogatory term for someone who is passionate about certain things? If so, then I take pride in it, as it is only through passion that things grow.

Considering you are pretentious, arrogant, immature, and without a sense of humour; you fit the criteria for '12 year old funnyjunker' far better than I do.
