John Conways Game of Life

John Conways Game of Life
The Game The Game of Life is not your typical computer game. It is a 'cellular automaton', and was invented by Cambridge mathematician John Conway. This game became widely known when it was mentioned in an article published by Scientific American in 1970. The Simulation The Rules For a space that is 'populated': Each cell with one or no neighbors dies, as if by solitude. Each cell with four or more neighbors dies, as if by overpopulation. Each cell with two or three neighbors survives. For a space that is 'empty' or 'unpopulated' Each cell with three neighbors becomes populated. The Controls Choose a figure from the pull-down menu or make one yourself by clicking on the cells with a mouse. Java version This page initially contained a Java applet and a Java application you can download. Game of Life Java applet Life is a bit - Edwin Martin <>

List of unusual deaths This is a list of unusual deaths. This list includes unique or extremely rare circumstances of death recorded throughout history, noted as being unusual by multiple sources. Some of the deaths are mythological or are considered to be unsubstantiated by contemporary researchers. Oxford Dictionaries defines the word "unusual" as "not habitually or commonly occurring or done" and "remarkable or interesting because different from or better than others. Some other articles also cover deaths that might be considered unusual or ironic, including List of entertainers who died during a performance, List of inventors killed by their own inventions, List of association footballers who died while playing, List of professional cyclists who died during a race and the List of political self-immolations.

Multiple Choice Zombie Apocalypse Survival Game | Choice of Zombies You really aren't awake yet. You never are until at least your second cup of coffee, and this is only your first. You're having a hard time getting your eyes to focus. But it certainly looks like there's a man in your front yard, crouched down on all fours, gnawing at a leg. A human leg. Definitely. The man gnawing on the human leg suddenly stops chewing, as though some sound disturbs him. You've heard about the outbreak in Millbury, of course. But it seems the newscasters were at least a little right, because there's a zombie chowing down on a human leg in your front yard.

Excerpts from a Cat's diary: DAY 752 - My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. DAY 761 - Today my attempt to kill my captors by weaving around their feet while they were walking almost succeeded, must try this at the top of the stairs.

Happy Wheels Hello pals. I'd like to continue hosting the flash version of Happy Wheels as long as possible. With the loss of certain ad networks, I'm going to try out a few different ad formats on this site as I continue to attempt to regain some of the revenue that went missing. I'll be making a few minor changes here and there to see whatever works best. The discord server, which is now official at has been very helpful to me and the game. Though I would prefer to be silent, I feel obligated to say that I am still working full time on the sequel, and it's still reeeeeaally time consuming.

Il blog di istigazione alla conoscenza Il fascino di Giulio Verne e del suo viaggio al centro della terra è innegabile, ma ciò che è davvero impressionante è quanto la fervida immaginazione del geniale scrittore francese non sia così lontana dal vero. Eh si, perché se in linea di principio noi scavassimo un tunnel sotterraneo che collega due punti qualsiasi sulla Terra, fosse anche Roma con Pechino, o Bari con Barletta, e ci buttassimo a capofitto, arriveremo dall’altra parte in un tempo costante: 42 minuti. E il bello è che la realizzabilità di quest’opera è un problema meramente tecnico, meramente si fa per dire, sia chiaro. Immaginiamo di realizzare un treno gravitazionale, montato su rotaie ad attrito bassissimo, il quale – semplicemente – si lascia cadere sotto la spinta della forza di gravità. In questi tre anni di attività del blog abbiamo trattato tutti i temi necessari per comprendere questo fatto, davvero controintuitivo. Ma andiamo con ordine osservando l’immagine sulla destra: il nostro tunnel è il segmento
