In the novel, I am Legend, who was the monster? Neville or everyone else? Just because you are not alone in you childish behavior doesn't make it any more childish. You've found security in numbers. That is no great accomplishment.

Didn't read it

Wow, he really is taking stupid to a whole new level.

Yes, Neville was the monster. You know, that lone guy that went around and took shots at all the people that were just trying to live their life in peace... Wait... that sounds an awful lot like a certain troll on here... Hmm...

Blowjob, YOU are neville. Intruding into our world and believing yourself the hero, while you're actually a fucking monster.

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

I'll pass. If I want to read a novel, I will read the novel, not an internet summary of it. Don't be so lazy. The internet is a useful tool, but it's no substitute for actually studying something in depth.

Summaries are awesome for accumulating a lot of information in a short amount of time. Sometimes there just isn't enough time to read everything. People who utilize summaries aren't lazy. Lazy people are intelligent ones who sling insults cause they can't muster the motivation to make an argument. People who utilize summaries are efficient.

It's a cycle of misrepresenting the side and us banging our heads against the wall trying to explain what was said that makes you so damn frustrating.

Why is it amazing that everything has a mathematical model? To me this is expected. What I would find amazing is if something was discovered and it was also discovered a mathematical model could not be created to describe it. That would shatter my world view. In the past, I have even claimed that God could be described mathematically.

Mathematical models CANNOT explain EVERYTHING. Some phenomena are far too chaotic.

I'm probably an idiot for responding to this.

Honey bees don't know that they're making the most efficient lattice; they just create whatever lattice they happened to be selected for. I.e., they evolved that way. If we made a general rule of thumb "any trait that is selected for is most efficient," we'd be wrong so many times.

The reason we know, and the only reason we know, the lattice is the most efficient is because of mathematics. Bees don't know that; they (by far and large) just don't know how to create a lattice any other way.

There is actually an engineering bee with a pocket protector and graphing calculator. He 1st surveys the area, then plots his solutions. He then picks the lightest, yet strongest design. I think the hive may even use CAD. (Forgive my terrible humor.)
