I’ve always been interested in the ever dynamic classification of hate on Reddit. As the post modernist set of moralities continues to expand, more and more subjects, ideas, and opinions become taboo. A growing creep of egg shells in Reddit’s ecosystem. One particular subreddit spearheads the outrage operations: /r/AgainstHateSubreddits.
It being a new year, I wanted to get a clearer picture of the sub’s current targets. So I wrote a quick script to parse out all subreddits names from hot post titles and created a simple wordcloud. Font size emphasis is increased by frequency of occurrence.
I made some animations of crystallographic defect formations using equilateral spheres. Point defects, lattice regions, and other interesting patterns can be seen forming in the video below. This was created using Blender’s rigid body physics system.
Below is an animation of a laser bouncing around a triangle with open vertexes. A link to the Euler problem can be found at projecteuler.net/problem=202. This is just a visualization of the problem. This post does not contain an answer, or any algorithms.
