Robotics, day 1

This video is so much winning I can’t take it. Listen to those blocks go bing bing:

My group is awesome. We have a deep sperg, a chad, and a turtle (that’s me), and we get along very well as a team. None of us had touched a robot before this class and in three hours we were hacking away like it’s a kid’s toy. Which they almost are—a 100-IQ five year old could teach points. Turns out, robots are quite simple to understand and use, you just have to be careful is all because they’re just a bit dangerous and crash easily. But if you can grok encoders, you can understand them from the servos up to the programming because the damn thing is just a handful of servo motors moving the joints.

For the first time in a long time, my writing output hasn’t been reflecting my real life mental state. So this post is also meant to convey that things are actually pretty great lately.

    What’s a turtle in a group context?

    • Aeoli Pera says:

      Fun question. In this case the turtle does the assigned reading (you’d be surprised how much there is) and stays a bit ahead on the hands-on part and then subtly teaches them the concepts and vocabulary in conversation. They’re Millenials in a tech school so neither one can go without external stimulation for more than a minute at a time, but they’re wicked fast at picking up the hands-on portion with tiny nudges. That’s what you’d expect from high-testosterone, visuospatially tilted dudes. It’s not that they can’t learn the conceptual side, they pick it up easily, it’s just that they’re effectively illiterate due to attention span issues.

    So, spreadsheetman to robotics. What are you studying now? Mechatronics? I just finished my marketing shit and started a marketing company. But I realized I’m too autistic to actually be much good at it or enjoy it. Using them skills to financially get me through lab tech equipment specialist diploma. Also bootstrapping my way in somewhat by working as a quantitative data analyst and research assistant for Richard Lynn’s Ulster Institute. Ahhh, thal lyfe, huh?

    Ah, turtle vs rabbit turtle. Slow and steady to back up the energetic youngsters.

    Off topic,

    I’m new to this blog, and was recently reading the article about facial types and learned from acquaintances that my physiogamy closest resembles an owl melonhead or a pharaoh melonhead. What are the characteristics of the pharaoh melonhead?

    Thanks,
    The Baron

    >What are the characteristics of the pharaoh melonhead?

    Off the top of my head:

    Usually Swarthy/dusky complexion but sometimes nordicized/light-complected
    Gracile-ish bone structure in face
    Strongly mesomorphic somatotypal tilt
    Impressive average IQ; verbal tilt
    Extroverted personality; charismatic

    This type tends to either be quite good or quite sociopathic; it seems like it’s basically a mediterranized version of Arch-Melonhead (i.e. arch-melon with likely local Mousterian or swarthy Arch-neanderthal admixture; some impressive facial humanity on those old Egyptian statues)

    This type has a noticeable range of appearances but when you put them together they synchronize into a pretty coherent and clear whole which you can see in my morph gallery.

    Examples include James Woods, Vox Day, George Soros, Joe Rogan, Reinhard Heydrich, Augustin-Louis Cauchy, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Vladimir Putin. Derek Carr has pharaoh melon front but T-back/occ.

    ^Sounds like me then

    ^I decided to make that morph after reading this post by Aeoli

  8. Aeoli Pera says:

    Probably the closest people to the actual archetype are Cauchy, Heydrich, and Putin, in that order.

  9. Ø says:

    This type’s personality is very “driven” and exemplarily M-back; if Vegeta from DBZ existed IRL I think he would look like my morph

    Also,

    “Arch melon appears to be the more alpinized, ancient version of the same thing”

    ^Cain’s lineage

    Yup, but ain’t never giving up my spreadsheets. It’s a labor of love.

    >I just finished my marketing shit and started a marketing company. But I realized I’m too autistic to actually be much good at it or enjoy it.

    You’ll be better for it, but yeah it’s cutting against the grain for sure.

    >Using them skills to financially get me through lab tech equipment specialist diploma. Also bootstrapping my way in somewhat by working as a quantitative data analyst and research assistant for Richard Lynn’s Ulster Institute. Ahhh, thal lyfe, huh?

    Pretty much. If you get into the Ulster Institute you have to send me all their data though, new blog rule.
