1/100,000th Scale World

The floor should be slightly curved, but we haven't figured out artificial gravity yet, so for now we just added a trace intoxicating gas to the air that messes with your inner ear and gives you a sense that the ground is tilting away from you.

Hopefully in a couple of weeks we'll be able to resume our apple-focused updates, because we have SO MUCH to say about Cosmic Crisp.

I know it’s silly, but I got to try a cosmic crisp recently and it was amazing.

If only individuals could meaningfully steepen this curve.

Neutral Evil is for people who like keeping the weight nicely centered in the carton, but also hate everyone else who wants that.

I switch between Lawful Good/Chaotic Neutral.

I think Chaotic Neutral and Chaotic Good should be swapped though. First of all, Chaotic Good is more random than Chaotic Neutral, which doesn't add up. Also, the choice for "chaotic" neutral still follows a pattern, and has some practical use: the weight is evenly divided over the carton.

My thoughts EXACTLY. Also disappointed in myself for having a strong opinion on this XD

No, no, this is important! Also, I just realized it's worse than I thought: the Kolmogorov complexity of CN carton arrangement is the lowest after LN (implement egg carton as a flat array with stride of six, fill odd positions with an egg), which is preposterous!

I tend towards Lawful Good or Neutral Good for a standard egg carton, and Lawful Neutral for the 24 egg cartons we get from Costco.

I'm also True Neutral, but the cartons we get have the expiry date printed on the end, so I try to have the weight of the eggs towards the rear of the fridge with the date on the carton facing outward.

I would be Lawful Neutral, if not for the fact that I want to leave the suspicious looking eggs until last which makes me Chaotic Good in reality.

A death-first search is when you lose your keys and travel to the depths of hell to find them, and then if they're not there you start checking your coat pockets.

Mildly surprised that Agnatic Primogeniture didn't somehow end up on this. (Or, more seriously, whether there could be any value in tree search strategies based on the more complicated strategies for succession and inheritance)
