Yo guys. I'm writing a philosophy paper and I'm trying to encounter some views different than my own in order to have the strongest possible argument. I'm taking a utilitarian approach to say what provides the most good overall.

Is it ethical to manipulate the genes of your children via in vitro to keep them from inheriting a genetic disease? What if it's life threatening? Or only minor?
What about in order to control your children's traits for appearance? Intelligence?
Is all of this ethical or only some of it?Why or why not?
Furthermore, if these practices do become common in the populations that can afford the expensive procedures, potential donor banks, etc., are there potential negative repercussions the population in general would face? (Popular Eugenics?)

So far the only things I've heard in opposition are bandwagon, appeal to nature and slippery slope fallacies. But if you can justify these I'd be all ears.

Ethics are the morals held to be of the greatest use to society, no?

Accepting that, if it were in one's power to change things that are detrimental to both one's potential offspring and society as a whole would it not be ethical to make that change, regardless of the cost?

Can a tank have wheels? Sarah Palin 17/02/09(Thu)07:44 No. 15363 Board: /w/ [Reply]

I'm arguing with my friend whether a tank can have wheels or not and what makes a tank a tank.

He's saying in order for a tank to be a tank it has to have a tracked chassis as the main determining factor.

I say it just determines on what its role is. As in a bulky armored vehicle.

I suppose this also goes into the argument of what differentiates a tank from an APC.

Also if a tank is simply determined by treads what about future prototype tanks that only have legs?

Tanks clearly can have more than just treads in my opinion but I suppose i'll let you guys argue about it.

Hello /sci/!

Does anyone please know of a program that can analyze torrents? What I want it to do is to create a printout of all the files in the torrent. I also want to make comparisions of torrents; to see if two torrents have files with the same name and/or the same hash value.

Anonymous 14/10/16(Thu)11:00 No. 15936 ID: 789203

Yes, dumptorrent.

Hashes are computed per-block, not per-file. Meaning, the hashes a torrent contains will depend not just on its particular contents, but also the particular order in which they appear, and the block size that was used. It's very unlikely that two distinct torrents containing the same file will also share any hashes, even if the block sizes are the same. It's even less likely if the file in question is smaller than twice the block size.

Let n be the absolute offset of the file on the torrent A (given by the sum of all the file sizes that came before), and let m be the same on B, if file_size >= block_size * 2 and n is congruent to m modulo block_size, then there will be at least one duplicate hash between the two torrents. For randomly constructed torrents (a reasonable situation) with a random file_size the probability of the congruency condition being met is of 1/block_size. So for block_size = 4 MiB (a common block size), the probability is lower than four million to 1.

Ok, I have a bit of an unusual problem.

My grandmother died a year ago and left behind a fuckload of shitty furniture. I want to help my parents sell it because they effectively became poorfags sponsoring my education.

Now, this would usually be no problem except the fact that they live in a shitty 2nd world Eastern European country, and in a small(15k residents) town no less. A garage sale, or a Craigslist ad or really anything of the sort is not an option here.

So what the fuck do I do? I doubt that anyone here has experience with this kind of issue, so maybe just help me brainstrom one up? I really want to help my old folks, but can't do so financially because of being stuck in the post-bachelors limbo.

Auction. Find a place that does "estate sale" auctions. It'll at least move it quickly

Clean it, take lots of good pictures, and sell it to some wealthy Americans with more money than common sense on eBay. Even with international shipping they'll fucking pay through the nose if you include all the buzzwords they're looking for.

Anyone have anything humorous in here, rather than sifting through a shit-load of threads just to look for one?

Is that an fish tank air pump?

I have no idea what's going on there; sure it isn't someone's home-made solution?

In particular, I am unsure how one lights this bowl that is inside a closed dome. Perhaps it is also heated electrically? I could see that working if the bowl could reach ignition temp itself, then the pump pressurizes the upper chamber--filling the lower one with smoke (an inversion of the gravity bong's vaccum principle).... but wtf seriously no idea.

Anonymous 16/06/20(Mon)20:15 No. 13188

Found it using the filename "fp1" and "bong"

It pretty much works like I expected, except the bowl is not electric so it sounds rather inefficient and complicated to use. I very much doubt any have been made since the 80s.
