Scanning Embryos For Super-Intelligent Kids Is On the Horizon

rogoshen1 Re:What a terrible, terrible idea. (362 comments)

Well then you've reduced humanity down to a few genetic markers. That sounds very depressing to me.

Scanning Embryos For Super-Intelligent Kids Is On the Horizon

rogoshen1 What a terrible, terrible idea. (362 comments)

Gattaca was a cautionary tale, not a blueprint for future eugenics. What if someone like Newton or Einstein didn't have the perfect genetic signature for IQ (as we *think* we understand it), and instead the parents select for a more 'intelligent' specimen with a higher IQ, but one that lacks creativity and 'genius' or a million other factors that would be important for a child's success?

Example: Hawking: 150ish IQ, John Sununu 190. (Granted those are 'internet' numbers, so take with a grain of salt.) Point being, IQ is not everything.

Ubisoft Claims CPU Specs a Limiting Factor In Assassin's Creed Unity On Consoles

rogoshen1 Re:clock speed is not the right comparison (337 comments)

Well perhaps the dudes who made Everquest 2's engine moved to Ubisoft? (In EQ2's engine things like physics, cloth, shadows/lighting, environmental effects were all originally rendered by the CPU.)

Ubisoft Claims CPU Specs a Limiting Factor In Assassin's Creed Unity On Consoles

rogoshen1 Re:Don't worry guys... (337 comments)

The problem is continually trying to achieve photo-realistic 3D graphics. It's the uncanny valley; and the bulk of hardware spec increases are from trying to push that envelope.

My favorite example of this is Warcraft 2. Ignoring the tiny resolution; the game doesn't really look 'dated' -- due to well done, albeit cartoonish graphics and animation. Compare that to Everquest (1998); which looks like someone stuffed a bunch of polygons in a blender.

Similarly the AAA mega 3d graphics fests will follow the same pattern. In 5 odd years they'll look completely outdated and stale.

are you comparing the Germans, who in 1918 were the most industrious, most scientifically advanced, and socially cohesive people on the planet, to modern Arabs?

Living On a Carbon Budget: The End of Recreation As We Know It?

rogoshen1 Re:Lots of cheap carbon stuff (652 comments)

If you were to graph out educational attainment for women, and population growth -- you'd see that they have a very strong, very negative correlation.

That's the effect that gp was trying to point out -- send the womens to school, and the population growth rate plummets.

Living On a Carbon Budget: The End of Recreation As We Know It?

rogoshen1 Re:Lots of cheap carbon stuff (652 comments)

Part of the advantage is being 'rich', is that you're able to expend a bit more money now, and have it serve your best interests later.

Part of disadvantage in being 'poor'; is either not being able to take advantage of buying a new, more efficient appliance (air conditioners are a great example) OR not being able to see the forest for the trees, and realize buying a new AC unit will pay for itself in time.

Online Creeps Inspire a Dating App That Hides Women's Pictures

rogoshen1 Re:yeah, ok, whatever. (482 comments)

That's true, and to be fair, perhaps the image that came to mind was a 5'5 manlet with a combover +pony tail standing next to a rented mustang trying to woo girls with his cash flow :)

So, sorry. And yes, rude people on dating sites are doing you a favor to be honest. If they're rude to a total stranger, why would you want to get to know them?

rogoshen1 Re:yeah, ok, whatever. (482 comments)

IT could be because if a dude posts a picture of himself
next to a sports car or in a tux iss a really fucking creepy vibe. Not to mention it says "i'm overcompensating!".

Much like an obese woman taking an iceberg selfie, that accentuates cleavage.

As an IRS agent, that sounds an awful lot like imputed income. Please don't leave the country, we'll be in touch.
