Coin Tossing Anonymous Comrade 02/04/2020 (Tue) 22:50:43 No. 5942 [Reply] [Last]
The official thread for coin tossing, a really popular hobby in the USA at the moment. You can share your tips and tricks to win every-time.
2 posts and 1 image omitted.
Math problem: Suppose your coin may be biased, but you don't know the actual probabilities. How do you make coin-tossing fair? Variant: Let's add to this problem the start-orientation bias.
>>5945 Toss the coin twice with the calls reversed (same start orientation). Repeat if tied.
>>5945 Look at it, then depending on if it is heads or tails turn it on your arm or not, to make it more fair for the candidate who really tried so hard and made our billionaire friends so happy.
Another math problem: Suppose the coins are unbiased and that there is no start-orientation bias either. What are the odds that you win six tosses in a row?
>>5958 With each toss, the number of possible sequences doubles. 2*2*2*2*2*2 = 64. So, there are 64 possible sequences for six coin tosses and in only one of them you win six times. In other words, that you DON'T win six times in a row has a probability between 98 and 99 percent.

Is it worth it? I here they take political prisoners but surely they won't mind a tanky would they?
It’s a nice place, but it is not worth it unless you’re the child of Cuban immigrants. If you’re the child of Cuban immigrants then yeah move back and be with your family and have access to healthcare and a college education that’s awesome, but if you’re not then you’d probably be happier being with your family.

Is poetry dead? Anonymous Comrade 12/28/2019 (Sat) 14:46:31 No. 4776 [Reply] [Last]
Button "Poetry" kept getting aggressively recommended to me in ads on Facebook, so I decided to check it out, and I have come to the conclusion that it is the most vapid psuedo-intellectual bourgeois spectacle I have ever seen (pic related) Libs eat that shit up when the poems aren't even well-written because it tells them what they want to hear. Sure, you can like what a "poem" is talking about, but that doesn't make it a good "poem", and the stuff they talk about is basic bitch lib shit anyway like "a cashier looked at me funny once at the grocery store, it was probably because I'm LGBT". Or stuff about muh depression. Newsflash; we're all depressed, honey. It's hard not to be in a society this alienating. If this is what's considered good modern poetry, can poetry be saved, or is it dead and buried? All of the examples of modern "poetry" that I can think of are similarly vapid, but I am very okay with being proven wrong.

>>5126 Nah bro you're the one who needs to pay attention. Most rappers today (except for absolute hacks like 6ix9ine) are on some kind of emo phase and when they talk about drugs, it's about how they consume them to deal with shit like depression and what not. Hell, even fucking Kanye West is doing christian music right now.
Pick up a literary journal. The quality is quite a bit better, even if it's mediocre compared to "the greats". Instagram and Facebook slam poetry is for people who want to look cultured but aren't cultured enough to enjoy proper poems, so they need simple, in your face "verse" that can't be analysed in more than one way. It's usually pushed by art-thots in HS and art-thots who just entered university.
>>5130 >it's about how they consume them to deal with shit like depression and what not. Hell, even fucking Kanye West is doing christian music right now Well I was referring to the last shit I heard from 2016, I don't know what rappers are on about for 2019-2020 but that emo shit makes sense, though they're about 10-15 years too late.
>>5108 Most poetry is unironically incel shit about how hot some woman who won't fuck the author is.
>>5802 >incel shit about how hot some woman who won't fuck the author is <t.doesn't read 'poetry' outside of reddit, twitter and chan posts Try picking up poetry of classic poets m8.

If you hate 'capeshit' you still might like his channel because he goes into a lot of hidden 'not traditional super heroes' gems >Comic tropes The same as the previous, but more mainstream. It's still into the obscure, forgeten heroes and bad comics. >Renegade cut The only out right political one. He his media analysis always come out with interesting leftists takes.

What do you think about learning the North Korean dialect of Korean?
13 posts and 2 images omitted.
>>5707 I just think it's an awful language, that's it.
>>5710 Fair enough.
>>5709 You proof is a bunch of drawings in a pro-NATO anti-communist museum which just repeat standard anti-communist propaganda?
>>5723 There were drawings but I’m talking about the photographs. You chagrin my sources yet you spout your regimes rhetoric. Do you think I don’t know that NATO is a failure? I’m not there to masturbate, I’m there to pay respect.
>>5731 Anti-communists routinely use photos of famines in British India to depict Soviet famines. They have even less credibility when it comes to the DPRK.

/wooo/ - Professional Wrestling Anonymous Comrade 01/26/2020 (Sun) 22:38:49 No. 5713 [Reply] [Last]
Royal Rumble Edition, I guess. Even though we won't get enough activity to have multiple editions. I haven't watched any wrestling in at least half a year, but the Rumble is tonight and that's always my favorite PPV. I normally at least watch the last RAW and Smackdown before a PPV, but I'm so out of it that I didn't even bother to do that, so I have no clue what the current angles are. I watched NWA for a while but haven't liked what I've seen from AEW. Any other white trash comrades who like fake fights?

Essay writing / academic skills Comrade 10/15/2019 (Tue) 14:32:20 No. 24 [Reply] [Last]
Hey /e/

Im a brainlet prole that recently got a scholarships to university, and Im wondering if there are any resources that you could recommend to improve general academic skills with an emphasis on essay writing. I've done a general scan for books and courses on libgen and TPB. But I wanted to get some advise with a left perspective. When I say brainlet I mean dyslexic and when I say prole I mean any unskilled job I can land (bar work, kitchen work, construction, etc.) My degree is in healthcare and administration.

(19.76 KB 250x400 how to write a lot.jpeg)
Part of good writing is simply writing a lot. The more you write, the more mistakes you will catch, and the more you will learn to recognize those mistakes before they happen. Writing a lot is all about developing good approaches and habits towards writing. I work in a science and I have atrociously unproductive habits towards writing and I found this short, easy-to-read book helpful.
