I mean, yeah. It's obvious that DSP is a complete liar, and everything he says should just be assumed to be a lie, an exaggeration, or just a gin-dream. ~ The Manglement ( https://kiwifarms.net/posts/4008814/ )
Not sure what this entails.
Sorry, have to put on my science hat.
Perfect place to post those things. They are, for the most part 'gin fueled after all.Not sure what this entails.
I've considered making a thread for Phil's tweets to help taper off growth from the Mega-Thread. Would "Gin Dreams" be the place to post his early morning Gin-fueled tweets, or would those be best kept somewhere else?
But wasn't he hating people for liking that Fighting EX layer he was really bad at and hated?i think this is a good idea---so good i'm kind of surprised it doesnt exist already in this subforum. it could be like the thread in AL's: "phil says dumb shit on twitter", or some clever gin-related pun. "the late night ginquisition", "ginuine tweets from phil" "phil's late night ginsults" "phil's gincursions" "the twitter ginitiative"
here's a recent one to start: https://twitter.com/TheyCallMeDSP/status/1064820388595548161 (http://archive.li/wV2GG)

D$P already got publicly schooled on this:Sorry, have to put on my science hat.
He should have said: "The amount of liquid/solid fuel to create enough energy (or force) but also the right angle to launch the Statue of Liberty in an orbit, while also take the weight of the fuel and additional rockets into consideration". The way he phrased that requires no math at all, there isn't even a problem to solve, this was literally no rocket science. Ironically, this could also go for his financials.
So how much velocity does he need to lift this heavy statue into space? The answer is right in the question:
Everything above ZERO miles/sec, because then it moves up (which the statue normally doesn't do) and eventually it will pass the outer atmosphere. Just don't drop your statue or it may break. Maybe you also want to increase to acceleration or this project could take a while if you decided to lift it with 1 cookiediameter/sec. How to lift it? I dunno, this was not the question. You could even build a giant lift and take a lunch break at 12 o'clock. Nothing looks more impressive than a big ass statue floating above the clouds.
And which angle do you need to just reach space? Space, not an orbit. Two different things.
As long as you have access to unlimited acceleration you can use any angle as long as you don't bump into something. But most efficient are, don't be too surprised, 90° so the statue can leave the sphere of gravity and the decelerating atmosphere in front of it as fast as possible, also takes the least amount of fuel. I know, super surprising. If you want to leave something, you do it on the most direct path.
However, if he wants to launch the Statue of Liberty in an orbit, then he should take a small turn at some point. Real rockets and spaceships without a statue attached also do that, so they can prepare the orbit. Then you just need some power under your belly to propel the trajectory around the Earth (which is an orbit) and here we have it.
Do you know he was a valedictorian?
Phil's response to J0hn Galt is too good: "You are actually correct, that's what I meant! Been out of a scientific way of thinking for far too long now lol". First, Phil approves of the answer given to the question he himself asked. Phil knew the answer, he had just forgotten (he have must assumed his rocket science theoretical to be too esoteric for anyone that could see his tweet).
Yeah I saw this kind of behaviour a little while back when some kid tweeted him his Street Fighter artwork he'd done - it was pretty good, maybe even great compared to what you'd expect from a DSP fan. Clearly the kid just wanted a pat on the head from his hero and to feel like his effort was being acknolwedged. Far as I recall Phil skipped on anything complimentary and went straight to "I used to do art just like this. It's been so long though I'm out of practise! lol"This is my favourite part. "Boy, it's been so long since I was weight-lifting! These new machines have gotten so complicated, I can't even figure out how they work!" This is the lowest fruit hanging for the poser, and something that Phil's relied on before.
I like how completely behind the times he is. Next thing you know, he’s gonna say he’s “bipolar”. That hot mental illness for teenage females from a decade ago.
What's personally bothersome with this tweet is how he keeps weaponizing a mental illness in what could only be perceived as a crutch to get others to give sympathy bucks. His audience is suppose to be young kids to teenagers/young adults, the real question to me is; what does the average dsp viewer understand of Depression or it's implementation in the context Dave provides?
*snort* No I have not visited one of these greedy psychiatrists who tell you that you have problems so they can make some extra money. I know I have depression, if you have it then you know it, I'm not stupid, okay?Hey Phil, when were you diagnosed with Depression? What did the psychiatrist suggest? Have you attempted to do things to beat your Depression?"
Claimed he was diagnosed in high school and medicated. I think he even said he had a "cocktail" of different medications. Naturally couldn't / wouldn't actually name any of them. Eventually just stopped taking the meds or something.Hey Phil, when were you diagnosed with Depression? What did the psychiatrist suggest? Have you attempted to do things to beat your Depression?"
