      Laplace really transformed my life.

        Is a polar bear really a rectangular bear that’s been transformed to polar coordinates?

          I give this comment not one yay, not two, not three, but Fourier!

    I’m surprised there hasn’t been more discussion around these parts of the anandtech Skylake-SP vs Epyc test.

      I posted a comment in the [url=https://techreport.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=119747<]Skylake X: Bye Bye Rings, Hello Mesh[/url<] thread. Its a very interesting read. EpYC is surprisingly potent.

    [quote<]Eat 5 pounds of mac and cheese in an hour and be immortalized[/quote<] False advertising. Eating five pounds of mac and cheese in an hour would do nothing but remind me of my own mortality. I tried that once with jelly beans and ended up on the floor.

      It’s actually a spelling mistake, it’s supposed to be:

      “Eat 5 pounds of mac and cheese in an hour and be immobilized”

    RGB LEDs or it’s not a Shortbread–virtual reality cats don’t count. However, you could put RGB LEDs on the cat.

      • Metonymy

      had many cats?
