Science / Re: The Big Bang Theory is Unfalsifiable
On the subject of falsifiability, I've been listening to Max Tegmark's Mathematical Universe on audiobook, and he claims that the predictions and/or consequences of theories don't have to themselves be falsifiable. Which is how he tries to get away with saying his multiverse claims are scientific: he claims they simply follow from inflation. Which, maybe? I think I'd need to know more about physics/cosmology to properly evaluate it.

Also, I told Teeth I was protecting Diva, assuming I couldn't protect myself. From reading the old thread, I think I might have protected myself? I don't know the rules here, exactly.

Mafia / Re: Trump Mafia Day 2
lol. Looking back on that game, I claimed doc on d2, and was lynched on d3. Memory is fickle thing.
5
Mafia / Re: Trump Mafia Day 2
Okay. I actually looked the old game up, and I was lynched d3, not d2.

I take teeth's post to mean the day is over :shrug:

It should be.

Mafia / Re: Trump Mafia Day 2
The last game I played was a long time ago. I'm not looking it up. In all fairness, I should be lynched by now. I protected you because I watched the Witches game, and you made a stellar play. Plus, you defended me, and weren't necessarily the most obvious scum pick for a whack.

Mafia / Re: Trump Mafia Day 2
The last game I played on TR, I got lynched on D2, for drunkenly melting down on Teeth, after he started melting down on me. I was a limited-shot doc in a role-madness game, although I didn't realize I was in a role-madness game then. I claimed, but I was still lynched. As it is, I'm going to flip town doc in this game. I'm Mattis. I protected Diva on n1. Just full disclosure.

Science / Re: The Big Bang Theory is Unfalsifiable
If we didn't find redshift or CMB, then the theory would have been falsified. I'm sorry for serious-replying to a BSB post, but this is uniquely stupid.

Mafia / Re: Trump Mafia Day 2
Nos is the only person securely in my town pile. She called out Testy d1 for saying I'm scum and voting for Mike. Probably going to find more scum in the Mike pile-on, too, given I'm a can scum probably want to kick down the road if they can get other town lynched.

I don't really understand Bor's thinking behind the d1 to d2 flip on me, but it also didn't seem suspicious to me when I first read it. To then follow that up with the block claim, just doesn't register as scum play to me, unless Bor was just going nuts, and/or it's 5th dimensional chess.

Ksen is prob town or neutral. Testy was all over him, and it was probably standard scum opportunism.

Bili I can't read. I don't understand his thinking in the post that started the bw against me, and I don't know what to make of him going after Bor from the end of day1 and then now.

LD I like for town. He's barely posted, but what he has makes sense to me--putting aside his mafia strategy, which I don't necessarily agree with.

Valor mostly looks scum to me, due to opurtunistic-looking votes, but I also think Valor might just be being Valor.

Rach and Time both look vaguely scummy, but I have nothing solid to back that up with.

I slightly lean town on Pep. He's just been up my ass since random voting me on d1. I don't understand why he seized on Bili's bw-starting post, but maybe he was looking to see how I reacted, and I reacted poorly. Still....

Don't know what to think about Diva. Leaned town on her d1, but now I'm meh, for reasons undefined.

Mafia / Re: Trump Mafia Day 2
If Ksen has post-restriction, I can't work out the details. He has to say "fucking" a lot? He has to role-play the Mooch?
15
Mafia / Re: Trump Mafia Day 2
Ok, carry on with this captain obvious line of thought

Yo pep. Is that the only handle you go by?
16
Mafia / Re: Trump Mafia Day 2
What would Bor gain from fake-claiming a view, if she were scum? I'm reading her as a bit fishy, but that part makes no sense to me.
17
Mafia / Re: Trump Mafia Day 2
Who is Pep? Is he purely an MR poster, or is he someone I might know from old TR?

Mafia / Re: Trump Mafia Day 2
is this the post? (O can't quote it)

"Quote from: Valor on October 11, 2017, 03:22:24 PM
the logic on nesb makes sense. the "I think ksen is town, it's a shame I have to vote for him" makes no sense. The quick unvote makes sense though, if somebody is coaching nesb and was like, "WTF ARE YOU DOING????"

##UNVOTE ##
##VOTE nesb##
I can go with this. His explanation makes no sense.
##UNVOTE ksen##
##VOTE nesb##

If he flips scum, I'm pretty sure ksen will too. That "vote/unvote damn but this screws me" bit sure looks like mistakes->coaching.

And this:

does Trump say 'fucking' a lot? what kind of posting restriction is this

If he's not faking, he's almost certainly the Mooch. I don't know what that would mean meta-wise, but Mooch is probably town??
Mooch was basically fired for leaking. At any rate, there is no reason to assume he'd be town. "

Yeah.

Let's be honest here, you got that from borealis earlier in the thread

I'm not seeing the post where Bor mentioned it, but Testy's coaching accusation was discussed a little. In any case, I was just thinking about what that post might mean wrt my suspicians about Valor.

Mafia / Re: Trump Mafia Day 2
nesb, if you are not scum, trying to find connections between testy and others is good scum hunting.
But if it is just to figure out why testy voted you.
Don't worry about it, scum have to vote so they will often pick low hanging fruit.
Maybe check out those of us who voted for mikes?

Why did we? Did we have good reasons for doing so? That kinda stuff.

I'm not worried about why Testy voted for me, but I'll admit I need to get better at scum hunting.
23
Mafia / Re: Trump Mafia Day 2
If Bor is being truthful, and read her pm right, scum have some type of special.
24
Mafia / Re: Trump Mafia Day 2
Also, I know Testy didn't vote for Valor. Apparently, I'm not explaining myself well.
25
Mafia / Re: Trump Mafia Day 2
I'll look it up, but I'm referring to the post Testy made where he said it looked like I was being coached, in reply to Valor. I think it's where he switched his vote to me.
