      pi ends with the digit 9, followed by an infinite sequence of other digits.

      That’s a very interesting use of the word “ends”.

        TBF, if your goal is to generate the most valid sentence that directly answers the question, it’s only one minor abstract noun that’s broken here.

        Edit: I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s a substantial drop in the probability of a digit being listed after the leading 9 (3.14159…), even, so it is “last” in a sense.

        Edit again: Man, Baader-Meinhof so hard. Somehow pi to 5 digits came up more than once in 24 hours, so yes.

        Maybe it knows something about pi we don’t.

        It’s infinite yet ends in a 9. It’s a great mystery.

            I saw someone post this a few days ago, and someone else quickly pointed out that it is incorrect. This time I’ll point out it is incorrect.

            In base-pi, pi would be represented as 10. The place value of the right-most digit would be pi^0, and the next digit is pi^1.

              That’s pretty much what radians are. Well, they combine base pi with whatever base you’re using for the coefficients.

          Hyperreal numbers go brrr.

          I’m kind of curious what ways exactly using this in place of actual pi would change/break geometry. Obviously, it wouldn’t become noticeable until you try to involve infinite structures.

            There’s probably some finetuning at play for Amazon’s thing which makes it tend to always give a straight answer, instead of stepping outside of the box and doing something like correcting an implicit assumption.

        I asked this question ages ago and it was pointed out that “sub” isn’t a reddit specific term. It’s been short for “subforum” since the first BBSes, so it’s basically a ubiquitous internet term.

        “Sub” works because everybody already knows what you mean and it’s the word you intuitively reach for.

        You can call them “communities” if you want, but it’s longer and can’t easily be shortened.

        I just call them subs now.

        Don’t have links anymore, but few months ago I came across some startup trying to sell AI that watches your production environment and automatically optimizes queries for you.

        It is just a matter of time until we see first AI induced large data loss.

        I’d practically guarantee there’s a nonzero amount of suits out there who think it’d be a fantastic idea, and have at the very least tried to make it happen, and that it’s only a matter of time before one of them talks somebody into it if they haven’t already

        Oh I’m barely a Julia programmer 😅 I learned it a couple of years ago just to check it out, started writing a personal project with it but got a bit irritated with how interfaces are defined informally and you have to dig through documentation to find out the methods you need to implement, and then just sort of drifted away. Will definitely use it in the future for eg. some signal analysis thingamajigs and so on though, it was a fun language to use with notebooks.

        I usually prefer type systems that make me beg for mercy, heh.

    It might also work with some right-wing trolls. I’ve noticed certain trolls in the past only monitored certain keywords in my posts on Twitter, nothing more. They just gave you a bogstandard rebuttal of XY if you included that word in your post, regardless of context.

    Opportunity lost… Amazon should be sneaking in things like “buy snacks” or something. it works on my boss, though she keeps a handwritten list for her monthly supply run. (“buy donuts”… works surprisingly well, too.)

    Edit: it works. I guess. a little concerned about the fact that it’s idea of SciFI and Fantasy are… generic Isekai… but, oh well.
