Are there any other known non-period-1 billiard table oscillators where the rotor is bounded by four diagonally connected line segments, opposite ends parallel and equal length, and the rotor makes direct contact with this bounding region without ever killing it? rle Here are two 5x7 ones I found t...

Re: Gun Discussion Thread

Just asking, can anyone search for a P3 strong dot sparker? Sadly, I believe it's all but confirmed by countless unsuccessful searches that those aren't actually possible. The closest I know of are caterer/jam and a few duoplet sparkers (the first row of jslife/o0003-spark.lif): x = 249, y = 60, ru...

Reporting this as it is essentially a copy of my poll. Please just stop reporting posts — you clearly don't have a good enough sense of what needs mod attention and what will just anger mods further.

Re: What should be done to the Sandbox?

With all due respect, I don't think it's really our place to be making polls like this... these options seem like they're just things you came up with and foisted on the community without discussing anything first, whereas ideally we would need a clear consensus among both moderators and a large sub...

I view the free will theorem in the opposite way you do. You go, "If experimenters have free will to choose measurement bases, then the measured particles must have free will.
