  1. Do I always need to complete my movement? Or can I use the black squares as a wall and just run into them to stop?
  2. The letter E not in your alphabet?
  3. I'm sorry, this is vulgar, but every time I see the title I think.
  4. Ok, I was thinking more of one of the calculators that old school accountants use. The ones with the little spool of paper that print out as they do their calculations.
  5. I forgot to check earlier, but it is gone now. Less than 2 weeks... not bad.
  6. LOL. I have no idea what that is but I'm happy you accepted my answer.
  7. Seems as though there is a near infinite amount of answers. EDIT: Nevermind, did it in a less graphical way
  8. Thank You I'm curious too. It all depends on when they re-cache their pages. Although it used to be on the bottom half of the first page, now it is the top link when my name is Googled.
  9. Now I finally understand it. Thanks for the video, I was confused as all hell before.
  10. Just curious. I was hoping to get my name and stuff deleted from the Anonymity thread. I know that is kind of hypocritical, but with my unique last name this appears on the first page of Google searches. your last name has been deleted. you should now answer to,"hey you."

  12. Does this silence mean I'm right?

  14. Oops, forgot to put my post in spoilers. Sorry about that. As for the calculations, I don't know how to write programs to do that for me as there would be thousands of possibilities.
  15. The question is about probability of reach 20,21 or 22+ If the odds are higher than you'll reach 20 or 21, you want seat 1. If the odds are higher that you'll bust, you want seat 3. 1/13 chance of an Ace 1/13 chance of a two 1/13 chance of a 3 etc. 1/13 chance of a 9 4/13 chance of a 10 card (10 or face). Using those numbers, what are the odds of being dealt a 20, 21 or 22+?
  16. I think it is fairly obvious that this guy just wanted an answer and that's it. He's never coming back. His only posts were in this thread and a long time ago.
  17. To be completely fair, the U.S. stance on freedom of speech is ridiculous. Canada has freedom of speech, but we don't allow people to promote hatred and say whatever they want. We limit their rights based on the rights of others. Your Westboro Baptist Church wouldn't be allowed to operate how they do in Canada. The constant claims of "FREEDOM OF SPEECH IS MY RIGHT" with respect to these racist, homophobic, etc. statements just seems like a contradiction to the freedoms of others. I am quite pleased with the Canadian progress in terms of bullying online. As everyone knows, that Amanda Todd woman was Canadian, and recently there has been a strong push for punishment for cyber bullying. 8 students were recently arrested/detained in London Ontario with respect to cyber bullying. That being said, it is extremely hard to police the internet because of jurisdictional issues. If an American is posting hatred on a Canadian website (or website accessible by Canadians), we cannot limit their rights. As for reddit, I don't visit the site but I never knew the dark side of it and how inappropriate it was.

    Must resist making fun of Americans... this is harder than you think.
  20. The main difference between Anonymous outing the guy and the police doing is it the collection of evidence. Groups like Anon could hack into Amanda's Facebook account, or his, and figure out who was sending the messages. Police aren't given that ability and any evidence collected from that, or follows from that, would be inadmissible in court. As for my views on anonymity. Perhaps instead of removing all ability to be anonymous, we should fix the current system of changing IP addresses. What if you could allow people to be anonymous with usernames and their online identity, but if every individual has their own special code/pin/IP address/etc. then it would make it a lot easier for police to deal with cyber crimes. Granted this still allows the oppressive governments to figure out their activists, but it is a better balance between complete anonymity and full disclosure. I'm also sure that it would be relatively easy for there to be a group set up in a free state that would allow those in oppressed states to send information directly to them, and then they would broadcast that to the rest of the world. It is similar to using a proxy server, but it is using a willing proxy person. P.S. My last name is Eastern European, I claim it is Polish. I have no idea how to pronounce it properly since I am Canadian through and through.

  23. Wow, after reading into this reddit moderator guy, I just realized exactly how intertwined these events are. The violentacrez guy apparently started something called "jailbait" where people share pictures of underage women. This is (possibly) the same website mentioned when talking about the 32 year old man who harassed and stalked an underage woman resulting in her suicide. The internet creates a place for the dangerous people to meet and escalate their activities. Without the ability for people to act as they do, there would be less escalation as they wouldn't have the support system and competition with each other. Would they continue to feed their perversions if they didn't have this type of system?
