Emulating software becomes proportionally more resources as the original software requires more resources.
Emulating N64 games: Easy
PS2: harder
PS3 and x360: possible, but only with hardware that no sane manufacturer would mass produce in a single console.
#700 - gjsmothefirst (05/27/2013) [-]
Your first sentence is horrible from a grammatical perspective, but I'll ignore that for the time being.

PS2 emulation is all but perfect now. PS3 and Xbox 360 emulation exists, but no-one's put time or effort into it. Of course, Sony wants to do just that: www.polygon.com/2013/2/20/4010862/ps4-not-compatible-with-ps3-streaming .

Put it this way - Microsoft could do this if they want to. Microsoft doesn't care, though - or maybe they're just trying to intentionally screw us over. No matter how you play it, from what we know as of now, the PS4 is going to be infinitely more gamer-friendly than the Xbox One.

Last time I checked, loud incoherent screaming isn't music.

Scientifically, you can't ACTUALLY enjoy metal. Music releases chemicals in our brain which gives us the feeling we get when we listen to something with a good melody and beat. Metal is just loud noises for the autistic kids. Enjoy being a faggot.
#301 - gjsmothefirst (05/16/2013) [-]
Ah. I see. You aren't exactly a musician are you?

How about this - I've played piano for 12+ years (and about 10 other instruments nowadays), and I can attest to the fact that metal is music. No?
Not all metal involves screaming. There's such a thing as operatic metal (though its weird as fuck), no screaming at all. True, screaming isn't the best for your voice, nor do I like it, but often the music itself is fine.
What about the fact that a lot of metal is basically Bach on an electric guitar? Every listen to Jeff Loomis?

Shut up and go away, punk.

Under Zeno's paradox, if he keeps getting half his hair cut, he will never get it all removed. He'll get infinitely close, but never completely.

You're never actually reaching 1 with your limit there, but rather converging towards 1. The limit of the sums is 1, but the sum never actually is.

Since you're never cutting off all of what's left, but only half, you'll never reach 100% removal, because, in layman's terms, zero is not half of a non-zero quantity.
#100 - anonymous (04/30/2013) [-]
you are saying that it will be as long as regular haircut because you excluded most of times, such as waiting in line and some stuffs and you claimed that it would cost an infinite amount, so if you included these times, it should take forever since guinea pig has to walk outside and some stuffs infinite time.

What is the actual speed of sound, about 760 mph right? ( I've forgotten.)
User avatar #87 - Baconz (04/26/2013) [-]
The speed of sound depends on the altitude that you are at . The speed of sound at 32,000 feet for example is 672 mph
User avatar #90 - moooman (04/26/2013) [-]
I'm aware of this.
#85 - gjsmothefirst (04/26/2013) [-]
Yep, 761 mph - though I usually use 340 m/s.

Incidentally, Concorde could probably go faster, I think that's optimum cruising speed - best fuel efficiency for the distance. Likewise a 747 can get to 0.92 without ill effects - but it probably burns a LOT of fuel.

All correct there apart from the fact Lego doesn't pluralize to Legos, just like sheep doesn't pluralize to sheeps, because it is a Mass Noun as explained in comment 17
User avatar #37 - honestchap (04/13/2013) [-]
Sheep isn't a mass noun.

You can count them.
User avatar #41 - eddymolly (04/13/2013) [-]
I know, I meant Lego is a mass noun, not sheep, I should have put it in brackets or something to try and make it clearer what I meant, I was saying you don't put an S on because it is a mass noun, and separately, you also don't put an S on sheep

This whole thread:

WHO FUCKING CARES?

If you want to call it Lego, that's fine, if the vast majority or the population wants to call them Legos, you can't stop them.
User avatar #39 - eddymolly (04/13/2013) [-]
I care, that was the whole point, its one of those things that just gets me.

Everyone has something that just rustles them, and this is mine.

Also, just saying, calling it Legos is the minority, most people say Lego (I presume that you meant " if the vast majority of the population wants to call them Legos", so just to let you know, the vast majority don't)
User avatar #40 - vatra (04/13/2013) [-]
Well to be fair we are both making assumptions of that based on what is the norm for our social groups. This thread is the first I've ever heard Lego be stated as the plural. But seeing as there aren't statistics on whether the world prefers to call it Lego or Legos, both of our points are moot in that effect.
User avatar #44 - honestchap (04/13/2013) [-]
I believe you mean 'mute'.

A 'moot' point actually means a matter that requires or demands discussion and debate, whilst a 'mute' point is a point that has become irrelevant.

A mistake made common by a misunderstanding of the character Sheldon Cooper's Texan accent in the programme The Big Bang Theory, as he pronounces both words with little or no difference between them.
User avatar #52 - vatra (04/13/2013) [-]
Also for you, because it annoyed me that you corrected my word usage incorrectly.

"
Moot vs. mute

As an adjective, moot originally meant arguable or subject to debate. With this sense of moot, a moot point was something that was open to debate. But, since around 1900, the adjective has gradually come to mean of no importance or merely hypothetical. This usage arose out of an exercise in U.S. law schools involving the discussion of “moot” cases to practice argumentation.

In the common phrase moot point, moot means (1) of no importance or (2) merely hypothetical. This is where moot most often gets confused with the adjective mute, which means (1) refraining from making sound or (2) silent.

Moot also has a verb definition—to bring up for debate—that is almost nonexistent in American English and rare in British English." grammarist.com/usage/moot-mute/

Also, I've never watched that show.

No, I mean moot.



Idioms & Phrases
"
moot point

A debatable question, an issue open to argument; also, an irrelevant question, a matter of no importance. For example, Whether Shakespeare actually wrote the poem remains a moot point among critics , or It's a moot point whether the chicken or the egg came first . This term originated in British law where it described a point for discussion in a moot , or assembly, of law students. By the early 1700s it was being used more loosely in the present sense.

well having not spoken to people from everywhere, just going of google here, pretty much the only country I can find in the world that says "Legos" is America, pretty much every other country appears to say Lego.

Then again, I don't speak most of the languages in the rest of the world, so I don't know how there language rules work, but as far as I can see, i've not found an S on it in any other language (or in any other English speaking countries)
User avatar #45 - vatra (04/13/2013) [-]
I'm not saying Legos is correct, just that it is used, so it would technically be slang. Which I have no issue with, language is boring when you rigidly stick to the rules. I cannot say for any country but my own, but Legos has become the accepted standard. Interesting tidbit for you, when slang becomes wide spread and generally accepted the language usually adapts and makes it correct.

Yet I've never once heard plural "Lego".
I'm American BTW, maybe this is why - we do a few things differently (not necessarily better) here. I don't use it as a mass noun, and most people I know actually do count Legos...

As I said, some use it as a count noun, but unfortunately I don't know when exactly the first time someone uttered it with standardised pluralisation of the word, but it is generally considered to be an Americanism as the standardised version does not appear in any significant amount outside of the US.
#28 - gjsmothefirst (04/13/2013) [-]
I see British spelling...
Well, let's put it this way then - here in the US, I don't know anyone, including any English teacher that's talked about his/her kids, that refers to Lego as plural. At this point, it's almost (but not quite) a generalized word, separate from the brand (there's a name for that, I don't know what it is). Kids grow up saying "Legos", parents say "Legos", even most professional things involving them (conventions etc.) refer to "Legos". It may be technically improper, but trying to change it futile - it'd be like saying our use of "ize" is wrong.
