You can't walk but want a go on this swing? Please travel the opposite end of the town, pay $20 disabled tax, the go back to your swing and enjoy. BTW you can only do that during work hours.

This is the last one, I promise. Was just casually going through my ~/Pictures/reddit

uspol (-ish), sad 

This whole reality of the US, school shootings, is incredibly shocking and sad every time I see something about it.

When I was in K12 we did drills for fires and earthquakes. For one year I read at one of the worst high schools in Turkey, in one of the toughest districts of Istanbul. All we had was one stabbing and a couple fights. Which was an absolute shocker even in that school.

Whatever is wrong with these people, I hope the US somehow fixes this.

The author-year citations make me want to quit social sciences.

The picture below is an excerpt from a textbook I'm reading and about 25% of the paragraph is citations. I need to do a lot of highlighting just to read paragraphs like these, and they're not uncommon.

If only we used numeric or alphabetic (e.g. [BM1989] instead of (Bates & MacWhinney, 1989)), it'd be much much better.

That's _tiny_. I've a larger 64G usb stick plugged into my RPi.

What Turkish National Corpus wants to know before allowing you to access.

I wonder why they don't also ask my height, weight, blood type, size of my genitals and the colour of my eyes. Given these are just as relevant as my gender or address in this form.

Behold my three little musketeers: a Seagate 1TB HDD (black), a random cheapo 2600mHa power brick I found in a drawer (white&green), and the naked Raspberry Pi 3B peeking from in between the two (tho its silly little jacket is on its way). The hdd and the powerbank are stabilised with some glue tack onto the shelf they rest on.

Fear me now, Google!

Thinking of hypothesis testing as a criminal trial. Pretty good analogy imo.

I think I got a neat org agenda setup this time.

Or maybe it's because the semester is not on yet so I don't have any scheduled items or deadlines.

This was somewhat inspired by, with some code taken from there. My setup's source available at:

6 looks line a nice binsize for age: roughly 0-6 are infants, 6-12 are prepubescent kids, 12-18 are adolescents, 18-24 are university age, 24-32 are young adults, which is IMHO some nice detail. Also, 32-48 early middle aged, 48-64 older and 64+ elderly; but after "university age" and maybe "young adults", categories are a bit more cloudy.

The graph below is using data from See how esp. bars 3 and 4 are affected.
