Without a foundational, tree-trunk understanding of all parts of history, we often forget the things we do learn, leaving even our favorite parts of history a bit hazy in our heads.

The ENTP personality type is the ultimate devil’s advocate, thriving on the process of shredding arguments and beliefs and letting the ribbons drift in the wind for all to see.

ENTP personality

Unlike their more determined Judging (J) counterparts, ENTPs don’t do this because they are trying to achieve some deeper purpose or strategic goal, but for the simple reason that it’s fun. No one loves the process of mental sparring more than ENTPs, as it gives them a chance to exercise their effortlessly quick wit, broad accumulated knowledge base, and capacity for connecting disparate ideas to prove their points.

An odd juxtaposition arises with ENTPs, as they are uncompromisingly honest, but will argue tirelessly for something they don’t actually believe in, stepping into another’s shoes to argue a truth from another perspective.

Construction d'un abri en torchis par Spi0n En pleine forêt du Queensland, un australien réalise l'exploit de fabriquer un abri avec des matériaux naturels et des outils primitifs. Le baroudeur se fabrique d'abord une petite hache taillée dans la pierre, qui lui permettra de couper des petits troncs d'arbres pour réaliser la structure de sa maison, il recouvre ensuite le toit avec des feuilles et de l'écorce pour une isolation plus efficace.

Avec le même procédé, il monte un mur à l'aide de branches plus fines et son abri ressemble déjà à une véritable maison.

Computing the optimal road trip across the U.S. Last week, Tracy Staedter from Discovery News proposed an interesting idea to me: Why not use the same algorithm from my Where’s Waldo article to compute the optimal road trip across every state in the U.S.?

It hit me pretty quickly that what’s happening in the world of AI is not just an important topic, but by far THE most important topic for our future.
