@bjb568 Pearl pleasant to princes' pleasure
Pearl (Middle English: Perle) is a late 14th-century Middle English poem by an unknown author. With elements of medieval allegory and dream vision genre, the poem is written in a North-West Midlands variety of Middle English and highly—though not consistently—alliterative; there is a complex system of stanza linking and other stylistic features. A father, mourning the loss of his "perle [pearl]", falls asleep in a garden; in his dream he encounters the 'Pearl-maiden'—a beautiful and heavenly woman—standing across a stream in a strange landscape. In response to his questioning and attempts to obtain...

@nsn The smallest tip is actually $0.01 - in US custom this is the most extreme criticism of a waitperson, and is akin to directly saying "I left this penny just to let you know I didn't forget to leave a tip - you really treated us that terribly" - it's not far from "screw you". Out of easily thousands of visits to restaurants in my lifetime in the US I've maybe had reason to do this...once, twice maybe? <15% of a bill is considered a somewhat low tip, with 15% meaning "you were adequate" and 20%+ being "you did a great job, I'm leaving you more than social custom requires". — BrianDHall yesterday

With slit pupils, you mean?
In statistics, the standard score is the (signed) number of standard deviations an observation or datum is above the mean. Thus, a positive standard score indicates a datum above the mean, while a negative standard score indicates a datum below the mean. It is a dimensionless quantity obtained by subtracting the population mean from an individual raw score and then dividing the difference by the population standard deviation. This conversion process is called standardizing or normalizing (however, "normalizing" can refer to many types of ratios; see normalization (statistics) for more). Standard...

@bjb568 68th percentile does not have a z-score of 1 on a standard normal dist
@bjb Look at it this way: If you do some physical activity, which muscles get the sorest? The weakest ones you used. Now, if you have to do some literary criticism assignment and you really can't stand the assignment, why can't you stand it? What makes it annoying for you to complete? Whatever it is that annoys you is the weakest part of your current mental tool set. Every time you do something you don't want to do, you learn a little more about how to deal with whatever bothers you about it.
You're training a rather complicated neural net here. You may not even realize what you are learning.

This makes way more sense. I think I blurred OAuth and OpenID. An SE OpenID serves my purposes perfectly too, but I tried the Google path because, philosophically, doing this feels like murdering a puppy to me.
