That's why schools implement D.A.R.E. programs, sir.
My schools DARE program was a joke. Besides I'm speaking of peer pressure. Which is neither good nor bad. Though it can be used for either

Yeah I know :P DARE didn't save anyone in my suburban, richly overpopulated, town near the water.

In my town, half the things teens figured out how to do were learned for the first time during the DARE "dont do this" presentations

Just spent the past hour researching into some really old internet Flash drama. I find it really interesting for some reason - a bit of detective work here and there keeps the brain on its toes. Plus, it's amusing to see how similar some things were back then, and then how different other things were - the limited number of people who could animate meant that those who did were gods amongst men (well, teens), and their words could command armies; which is interesting to see in a 15-year-old who lacks better judgement.
Also it's refreshing to see names you recognise pop up, as you think to yourself "wow, they've hardly changed in 6 years."

I know it's not a topic for everyone, but has anyone else done some "history of the Flash community" research in their time, or am I the only one that sad?

About once every six months or so, when I happen to be up late at night feeling nostalgic.

I have like one time. It's kind of embarrassing, almost like watching yourself on a home video of random family reunions and school plays etc and hearing yourself make stupid jokes and hearing you say stupid things that you wouldn't have said today.

Yeah I remember feeling like an idiot when someone recorded one of my family get together. That and my voice sounds really monotone. Maybe that's the mike or maybe it's just me and I never noticed :0

LOL that's a part of my childhood that i'd rather keep locked away in a deep deep dark corner of my brain

in retrospect though, discovering these forums at age 11-12 was a fairly interesting way of growing up. normally kids develop their personality and learn about social behaviour from hanging out with friends or something. I didn't talk much in school, but here on NG I must've reached 5000 posts before the age of 13. still can't decide if it's a terrible way to grow up as a child, or if it's a faster path to maturity since you're talking with older guys and there's the whole art/programming/business theme to it too.

Curious about AI? I just stumbled upon this free online course to be provided by Stanford.

http://www.ai-class.com/

It says they are to be providing the same teaching and same level of testing as if you had signed up for the class in Stanford, all free of charge.

It sounds pretty awesome.

A few of my friends and I are already enrolled in it. It looks pretty cool.

One of the computers at my college had it installed. It was running really nice on it - 1.6ghz dual core, 1GB of RAM. Couldn't find out anymore specs, some integrated GPU though.

Unless you're thinking about developing some metro apps, I wouldn't bother installing it yet.

i'm interested in coding a rope ladder. like with the full physics and how when you jump on it from afar it starts swinging back and forth. i think that in my childhood i played a game that had those kind of ladders. they are pretty fun.

oh yeah, I remeber those. cept the ones I'm thinking of didn't implement full physics they'd sway and creak when you climbed them. For the life of me though I can't think of the game I played with them.

A rope ladder physics can be calculated with integral calculus. But if you don't know this subject you can use the double pendulum dynamics to perform what you're wanting to achieve. Basically you have a single, immobile fulcrum which holds a weight at a fixed distance. Now, imagine a pendulum on a pendulum. A bit trickier, no? Gravity will always act in the downward position, but the weight is now distributed differently. So, there are two weights; the weight of the ball on the first fulcrum, and the weight of the first fulcrum on the root fulcrum.

It is pendulums on pendulums. Subdivide your line into as many pendulums you need, and fill an array up with velocity/acceleration/physics. For pendulum physics, refer to Wikipedia. Make sure to have a heavier weight for the ball, though; that's really important!

that's an interesting way to think of it. That way each piece of the latter moves slightly different from each other piece. Neat!
