@Frank silly question, but do you see any JS errors in the console?

np
@InfiniteRecursion so right... he closed a question just now. ;D

@bjb568 No, I think it's a neurotoxin. It may react badly to antibiotics. I think a combination of chelators (protein form, such as DMSA, to absorb the toxin) and possibly conjugators, (in case the toxin is of organic origin) by conjoining a acetyl group to emulsify fat soluble toxins so they can be removed from reserves and expelled.

there should be a window on the bottom of your browser
there should be a tab "Console"
switch to that, press F5
is there any red text?

okay, then it's not Javascript....
most probably, that is

Minecraft should have beer: 3 wheat + 1 water bottle. Gives nutrition and slight nausea, which worsens with each dose.

good point

@JanDvorak reminds me of Runescape. Eating kebab had a chance of making you sick.

reminds me of netscape

2:55 PM
@JanDvorak In the lord of the rings version, I believe you can make mead and become drunk.

eating corpses had the chance to make you sick and die
but that was litteraly the only food on early levels..
and if you ate too much you'd vomit and pass out.

I like that brewing stand recipe. 1/3 wheat + a little bit of water should give out about the same nutrition as a full wheat at the cost of a little brewing action and the fact that you get drunk.

if you had food-poisoning, and didn't get your char to vomit, you'd die
after... 12 turns or something?

@JanDvorak err... you need more wheat

oh... 8 wheat + water bottle? About the same nutrition as three bread, but way more compact
gone at -6. Good job, everybody!

Ah! I had a thought! NAC can be produced in humans from the amino acid cysteine! Much better chelator than DMSA. So if the toxin is in the form of mercury or lead, I can use it with possibly CaEDTA in the case of lead.

Hello, I was referred here by a different chat room. I have an issue where a user name Semaphore on the History StackExchange had an argument, and shortly after a large amount of my posts were downvoted, un-upvoted and even closed. I have reason to believe the user Semaphore is responsible. I have sent in a request about 3 days ago talking about the serial-downvoting but nothing has changed. Can anyone help assist me?

gets stuck for me at the part where that guy's head blows up

5:22 PM
the video is under a second
so if it doesn't loop in your browser (like it should), it'll get stuck there

@Sam Hmm... What happened to that project?

Damn.... I only recently found the place in FF settings that forces gifs to loop only once....

@JanDvorak No idea, I've never seen it before.

What's the integral from -1 to 2 of x^-3? 3/8 or diverge?

@bjb568 what normalisation scheme?
It crosses an asymptote...

My calculator says undef :(

Have you tried Google Wolfram Alpha?

@JanDvorak wuts dat?

5:30 PM
@bjb568 That's what tells you the values of stuff that looks infinite

@Sam It says diverge. It makes sense that it'd be the same as from 1 to 2 since it's an odd function tho.

I got ten stars for saying bye. You guys...

Maybe you could normalise by subtracting 1/(x-x0)^2n around each pole, but I'm not sure if that preserves all invariants

@InfiniteRecursion cool!

Yup, it's part of a coordinated campaign to spam file recovery tools to Stack Overflow, Super User, Server Fault, and other sites on the network: meta.stackoverflow.com/a/269868/19679 . They've been getting progressively more creative with their spam, now seeding questions with one account and answering with another.

user259867
@bjb568 It makes sense (this sense is called "Cauchy Principal Value"), but this is not how improper integrals are treated in Calculus course.

user259867
In Calculus, they are treated in a more strict way: if there is a singularity inside the interval of integration, split the interval in two.

user259867
So you get two improper integrals. And then both of these must converge. If either of them doesn't, the whole integral is written off as divergent.

user259867
So, in the sense of Cauchy P.V. the integral of 1/x^3 from -1 to 1 is zero. But in the stricter sense (which is normally used, and not only in calc) it diverges.

user259867
Geometrically: there's an infinite amount of area above x-axis, and an infinite amount of are below it. We usually don't want to say that infinities cancel each other; this leads to all sorts of weird arithmetics.
