Scenario: You are someday a parent of identical twins. You name the twins while they are infants (before leaving the hospital or during the first month or whatever they do in your locale). ... How do you know if you're calling the right baby the correct name?

How many times have you unwittingly switched the babies' names without ever realizing it before one child ends up stuck with one name? When the children become cognizant of their surroundings and begin to acquire language and stuff, I imagine that it would soon become pretty easy to tell Baby #1 from Baby #2, but it has occurred to me that unless you, like, color-coded the babies even during bathtime from the very first moments of their lives that it would soon be impossible to tell the difference until it was arbitrarily assigned later on. Like, "First born's name is [Name 1]" and "Second born's name is [Name 2]" would be completely meaningless and if they're identical there is no way to figure this out even with a doctor's help unless they took DNA samples at birth for this specific, arbitrary purpose.

Conclusion: identical twins do not have their own names.

Edit: And wait, that was a dumb. It occurs to me (belatedly sorry) that actually identical twins have the same DNA? So seriously it's impossible.

Easy. You give one child to be raised by another family, and take his/her back when they're older.

After, of course, you bribe their foster parents into hyping you as like the best cooliest dude or something.

Been killing time reading up powerball hype articles. I can't believe how many people are actually defending the annuity option. About the only good point they make is that it can be good to keep you from blowing it all at once, but you can build your own controls with the lump sum, and even just sticking the money into a savings account would yield a higher return than the locked in rate that the lottery has right now.

Also, you don't have to worry about what happened to several Iowa Illinois lotto winners in that the state went "teehee, we owe you this money but fuck you we need this for more important things".

Seika

To be fair, there are many more important things for a state to do with its money than give it to some moron who got supremely lucky.

I agree, but the fact that a government can do a legal version of fraud is all the reason you need to never take the annuity.

January 13th, 2016, 02:31 AM
Well yeah, all lotteries are like that. Only reason I've bought tickets in the last two drawings is because the expected value of the ticket is more than the cost of the ticket for a single winner. Waiting for it to get to the point that the expected value of the ticket greater than cost if multiple winners is dumb because there's no fucking way the pot will grow large enough. Reason being that all the numbers will have been picked for a single drawing so someone will win.

Edit: For the drawing on Saturday, I remember reading that ~80% of all of the possible combinations had been picked. For the drawing tomorrow I expect at least 90%.

Thank you. She's really old so I'm not sure how much health she's got left but I just don't want her to suffer needlessly. I took her to the vet and expensive blood work initially couldn't even read her liver enzymes. Then they measured them some other way and something that is on a scale that is supposed to max out at like 200 or 300 (I don't remember since I'm not a vet) was at 8500. We don't know why? But now she has liver medicine and seems to be improving.

I spent months last year on the sofa, though. My mattress was super old and uncomfortable and it was really cold where my bed is, so it was all around better to be on the couch. Now I have a new mattress but still no room to set up my various things so. The day I get to go to an IKEA and buy a shelf is a fond dream.

It's been really cold here lately due to our heater not working. Which is actually preferrable for me since I prefer to be cold to being too hot when sleeping.

Same, actually. It was just that we had a freakishly cold winter for our area last year. (Everyone did, but.)

In the house we lived in when I was like ten, my bed was right under a heating/cooling vent, and in the summer when the air conditioning was running it would get quite cold. To avoid getting too hot, though, I would just kind of get under moderate amounts of cover and wait to warm up instead of trying to fix it with warm pajamas or whatever because yeah, too hot is gross. And so I would pass the time until I got comfortable enough to sleep by imagining vaguely survivalist Digimon fanfiction.

Only partly true. Most things I have bought in the past I have carefully considered, and I've gotten better at it. Most things I've bought in the last year I regularly use. But I have still gotten rid of like two huge bags of clothes and two large stacks on hangers and it's still not sparse. Like some of it was hand me downs I needed in the past that I do not anymore. I also have a large bag of licensed fandom shirts that were my primary wardrobe in college that I need to get rid of but that I'm attached to.

Okay. This I can work with. This is my title from now on. The only title I will accept.

Too long, we'll just shorten it to "Mother"

You would think that but the fact that I used to be conversational and can now only manage basic strings does not bode well for how much you actually use "useful" bilingual skills in most areas of the country.

I can kind of understand snippets of conversational Spanish when I hear it spoken in restaurants and things but I can't remember sentence composition well enough to actually speak or write in it. I can comprehend bits but it's useless, so I actually envy the ability to put a sentence together in the language you learned.

But as for Glow's point, I think it's important to keep engaging with the language. If you actually knew bits of it, reading or listening to it would probably help it come back.

I never really learned a ton of it. I doubt I'd ever be fluent by any stretch of the imagination unless I actually did actively try to learn more. Though I do ocassionally listen to some French music.

Since I started coming to BL, I have forgotten how to use tumblr. Like honestly, I went there the other night and it was like being in a foreign country. I had gotten tired of the anonymity and never feeling like I was talk to anyone.

But that's really awesome! You should totally feel free to feel proud of what you are able to do, even if you can always get better at something. I'm really impressed with your abilities. The idea of not only being able to understand two languages but being able to communicate about one in the other is really, really impressive.
