  • What's the name of the Internet game where all of your old lives continue to interact with the game?

    I used to play a game online and can't find it anymore.

    The game consisted of small levels contained in just a square on the screen, and the goal was to reach the stairs to move up to the next level (or floor of a tower). But whenever you died or decided to restart, you'd go back to the first level and would see your previous life reenact all the moves you made on your first turn. This was important to the game, because maybe you'd set your character down on a button that opened a door, then you'd restart. Your first life would go back to that button and stay there, and now your new second life could pass through the door. Each new life would continue to show all the previous ones, so by the end you'd have dozens of little yous reenacting your previous moves.

    Has anyone played this game?

  • Finding at regular expression for a given language?

    In the context of discrete structures and logic, we're studying regular languages. The question is to find a regular expression over the alphabet {a,b} for a language for strings with an odd number of a's. I suspect that a regular expression can't define this language, but the textbook doesn't usually have trick questions. Thoughts?

    As a note, he's the kind of syntax we're using.

    Strings with an even length: (aa+ab+ba+bb)*

    Strings whose length is a multiple of 3: ((a+b)(a+b)(a+b))*

    Strings containing the substring "aba": (a+b)*aba(a+b)*

  • Use resolution to show that the given set of clauses is unsatisfiable?

    Use resolution to show that the given set of clauses is unsatisfiable.

    {p(x) ∨ p(f(a)), ¬p(y) ∨ ¬p(f(z))}

    This is a homework assignment, but it seems to me like the set IS satisfiable, and my professor doesn't seem like the type to throw in a trick question like that. Any help?

  • What's the name of this (possibly Christmas) movie?

    I remember a movie from my childhood, but I haven't seen it since I was five or six. I'm pretty sure it was a Christmas movie, but it was about two boys who stumble into a witch's yard and she casts some kind of spell. The main detail I remember is that she has a tree in her front yard that disappears at the end of the movie. My parents vaguely remember this movie, also, and they agree that it was a weird film, but don't remember any other details. Thoughts?

  • Ending of Brokeback Mountain?

    [spoiler alert]

    At the end of Brokeback Mountain, Ennis goes to visit Jack's parents. The father tells Ennis that Jack had wanted to move into a cabin with him, and later in his life ha wanted to move into a cabin with another man (presumably Malone). Does this mean that Jack's parents know he was bisexual/gay? Or are they naive? I didn't catch any other clues in the film to answer this question.

  • What color are Ron Weasley's and Hermione Granger's eyes?

    Not in the movies, but in the books. And if you can find page citations, that would be aces.

  • What would be a good Harry Potter-related nickname for a house?

    Three of my male friends and I are moving into a house together this summer, and we're trying to come up with a catchy name for the house. We're all pretty big Harry Potter fans, so I was hoping for something related to that. So far, my ideas have been "The Chamber of Secretion" and "The Four Broomsticks." If any of you have any other ideas, please contribute. We'd also accept any equally nerdy movie, book, or video game references. Thanks!

  • Should I read "Pride and Prejudice" before I read "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies"?

    I really want to read the book "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies," but I don't really have an interest in reading "Pride and Prejudice." Will I still appreciate PPZ without having read PP?

  • Question about Memoirs of a Geisha?

    Spoiler alert:

    Toward the end of Memoirs of a Geisha, Pumpkin betrays Sayuri by letting the Chairman see Sayuri sleeping with another man. When Sayuri asks why, Pumpkin says "Many years ago, you took from me the only thing I ever wanted." What is she referring to? The Okia? Fame? Something else?
