Computer & Technology / Re: Machine Learning is Hard
« on: November 08, 2019, 09:13:26 PM »
Machine learning would be much easier if you could remember how you develop as baby, how you become conscious of your surroundings and etc. It's definitely much harder to program a program that learns human behavior through inputs of key strokes, text, or voice data.

I'm not a programmer by trade but have try many programming languages and they all have their limitations. You can never get them to do the things you want them to do. Nest with in nests, loops within loops, and etc... It's just not clear cut like how we humans formulate ideas or solutions. But I believe that when machines do have the kind of sensory we humans do, our machine learning programs will be effective and may even surpass gift of intelligence.

Money & Investment / Re: $0 fees for trading stocks with the big players
« on: November 08, 2019, 08:58:21 PM »
Regardless of $0 fees, I still don't have money to play with the stock market. I'm just a old communist. :2funny:

The rule still applies. For you to gain, someone else has to lose. You could very well be the loser too.

General Discussion / Re: Guys: Hair Length For Your Lover
« on: November 08, 2019, 08:53:00 PM »
Only preference is that she not look like man.lol Short hair like a man is a no-no, I will say it since no guys in here are bold enough. For my woman to have short hair, I definitely will see her as poj ruam. I just can't stand it...

My bil owes us a little over 5k and it is time to pay up.

I'm kind of in the same situation and even had written out the loan in letter even stated clearly that it need to be paid back but so far it has been almost 2yrs now and the person hasn't even bother to. Like you, now the situation makes me a bad person for wanting to the person to pay back. If you don't lend people money, you're automatically a bad and stingy person, when you do, this is how it usually turns out.

Now, I'm thinking about pretending to be in a needy situation and will just ask to see if the person has enough to pay back. Money doesn't grow on trees, every dollar counts. But in your situation, it is kind of hard being your family at most is above middle class. Acting needy would really look bad. Best to just make up excuse that you could use the money for you kids school expenses and etc... and see if he will comply. It's really hard to trust people these days. They just all seem to lose their ways... If it isn't emergency. I'm not helping anymore.

Best the Thai government can do is don't just gave us 30 day visa-free stays, how about a 6 month to a year? Most Americans w/o money can't stay that long anyways. But for those like me, I'm at my burned out stage in my career. Having a place to spend some money and observe the Kingdom would be nice. instead of having to worry about visa extensions and penalties.

Because of the alternate last names, ie.. Yang and Young... See If I was a Yang and come across a smoking hot Young, I would definitely say it's fair game too.lol

I think it's best to practice like Thai and Viet people, as long as they're not related it's all fair game. Besides, although we may have the same last names, but our mother's has different last names so it's rather save to procreate a new clan. Of course, that's what logic would suggest but based on evolution/science. But everyone is entitle to their own opinion.

General Discussion / Re: Have you reached your full potential?
« on: October 21, 2019, 06:31:31 PM »
1. Have you reached your full potential?
2. Are you the person that you wished to be?
3. How has life shaped you into or not into the best person that you could be?

Answers...

1. Money wise. Yes, I don't think I can top my current level. I'm sure I will fall off the highest point of the roller coaster, from their on, there will only be lower points. Reason, I may get bounce around like a prostitute after resigning and may not be able to put much in my piggy bank.

2. No. Hopes and dreams can't be accomplished just by yourself. I'm sure we all need a partner to define us, not how we make ourselves to be.

3. Had always wanted to be like an inventor and tinker like Doc, from the movie, Back to the Future. But being poor and not having the right mentors in life greatly limited my own development. As for best person, I don't know about that but let people find out themselves.

General Discussion / Re: This is Trump's latest claims..
« on: October 21, 2019, 06:12:02 PM »
Disgraceful and shameful. Now our troops are getting potatoes thrown at them because of Trumps' "Me 1st" agenda. Has nothing to do with "Make America Great Again!..." It's more like, "Let's make everyone else hate the USA..."

Thanks! I think I will stick to the dumb idea of, "I don't know how to ride a bike..." line.

General Discussion / Re: America has a habit of abandoning their allies
« on: October 15, 2019, 06:45:53 PM »
It's disgraceful and shameful. Should have learnt from the past that allies should not be abandoned for short term benefits. By doing so, America has opened many doors to extremist recruitment. Just think of the many children or parents who's family are destroyed from this full scale assault from the Turks. We're not winning any hearts and minds but are actually cultivating more of people whom wants vengeance against us.

« on: October 15, 2019, 06:32:36 PM »
Just what do you do? I can use some OT but they can't afford me. Yes. I'm in need of hard cash, about $300k... Where can I make that in 2 months time? I feel like I need to work hard now and retired next year.

Like his songs. Whatever he had going on, hope he remains loyal to his family. Can not remain here indefinitely, the family likes to have money but it's more important to receive love.
