I never heard about this when I lived in Japan.

I did however hear they re-used bath water. This, however, is not filthy - before taking the bath you are supposed to clean yourself so the bath is for comfort, not cleanliness. So after the family has steeped itself in the hot water, it is reused as washing water.


Anyway since I am from the /sci/ line of work with a background in experimental Physics I thought it was time to check the efficiency of the washing machine. Easy really, just redirect the waste water into a bucket and look.

First round was disgusting! Really makes you think though. What was more disturbing was that the last water was not clean either, quite a bit of foam too. Also the dirtiest water was expelled in the spin cycles. Since I have a minor allergy I did a few tests. And I found that an extra washing cycle (cold wool programme for 10 minutes interrupted and followed by a hard spin) made the clothes significantly cleaner. I think my clothes last longer now before wearing out too.

It's not a librul problem; it's an lack of vision/ignoramus problem. Same as the war on drugs, lack of funding in science, overpriced education, lack of access to academic research, corrupt/incompetent media, overpopulation and closed source technology with vendor lock in.

Stalin fucked russia over. Too much talent left after communism got btfo. But even today, russians have many insanely talented people. I went to Moscow for one year during uni and the teachers are something amazing. It's almost like they care about students understanding their subjects. I've never experienced so many aha moments in class during lectures before, it was always during excercises from books at home. It's a shame that only fraction of textbooks are translated into english, i find the russian way of teching math superior. But chinks are still the favourites because 1 fucking billion

You don't need to "fall" for it. It's going to happen. You can't stop it. All you need to do is look around at all the backwards-ass old people and realize that they're just people. Even the most tech savvy old person goes about things in the weirdest fucking ways.

Machine learning is quickly advancing as many countries are heavily investing into artificial ‘deep learning,’ the latest example is a Google AI program beat a Chinese Grand master at the ancient board game Go.

http://www.trunews.com/article/google-ai-defeated-chinese-master-in-ancient-board-game

>(BEIJING) A Google artificial intelligence program defeated a Chinese grand master at the ancient board game Go on Tuesday, a major feather in the cap for the firm's AI ambitions as it looks to woo Beijing to gain re-entry into the country.

>In the first of three planned games in the eastern water town of Wuzhen, the AlphaGo program held off China's world number one Ke Jie in front of Chinese officials and Google parent Alphabet's (GOOGL.O) chief executive Eric Schmidt.

>The victory over the world's top player - which many thought would take decades to achieve - underlines the potential of artificial intelligence to take on humans at complex tasks.

>Wooing Beijing may be less simple. The game streamed live on Google-owned YouTube, while executives from the DeepMind unit that developed the program sent out updates live on Twitter (TWTR.N). Both are blocked by China, as is Google search.

>Google pulled its search engine from China seven years ago after it refused to self-censor internet searches, a requirement of Beijing. Since then it has been inaccessible behind the country's nationwide firewall.

Either that or because AI isn't their focus, time/money restrictions getting in the way and the whole "needing to run on commodity hardware" thing. I guess we'll really never know.

Just because there are infinite possibilities doesn't mean we need to search each one. We just need a way for either white or black to force a win or force a draw. There is no need to calculate every possible move.
