Something else in the news?

I neglected my blog a little bit to the end of the past week, so I'll try to keep it updated from now.

I wonder how many other arabian uprisings will come this year. Tunisia, Egypt...I thought Gaddafi would cut them down strongly (and I was sort of right as he killed a lot of protesters), but it seems he will lose control of Libya too. And I wonder if something is going to change as well, because I don't really believe in these so-called revolutions, aka one tyrant leaves, another replaces him. Well, I'm not sure if I care enough to change my opinion in days to come.


nice tanks you've got there Mubarak, too bad noone stayed to drive them

Wow I'm so happy. I will return home at 2 p.m. instead of 4.30 AND I won't have to learn words for examination either. Oh I think I'm gonna cry.

Today I should write a letter for my (hopefully) future university. They have this rule that if my grades from maths (or physics depending on where I'm applying) are good enough on my high school, I can skip the entrance exams. Grades aren't problem, but my letter-writing skills are quite...dull. But I'm sure they are used to it on maths university. ^^

No changes

As I evaded most of my duties last week, these 5 days won't be much better.  Meh. Still, Thursday remains the worst day evar, so I'm quite calm till Wednesday.

The weekend was cool though, evening at the pub haven't gone exactly as I had planned, but it was ok...I guess? I played some Starcraft over Saturday, got drafted into silver 2v2 with my noob terran friend -> success! and... that would be everything worth of notice.

Computer winning game shows

Some computer AI program called "Watson" created by IBM won Jeopardy! againts its most successful contestants. And WITHOUT connection to the internet, well I'm REALLY amazed.
What the hell is amazing about that? The biggest problem of AI bots is the fact that they can't answer naturally and that the human has to lead the conversation. I'm really not surprised that a computer can answer nearly every factual question without problems as the information can be easily stored in a database. However, human brain doesn't have (nearly) endless capacity as a computer database, nor can we search in them as quickly.

guess who won

I would, however, be very surprised if a bot could act as naturally as a human. There is this cool thing called Turing test whichrevolves about telling whether the person I'm talking to is a human or a chat bot. As far as I know, there is no bot which (definitely) passed the Turing test so far, but it's also a subject to discussion whether it is or isn't fair test.

Man, do I hate Thursdays...in school from 7 a.m. to 16.30 p.m. having the worst subjects (3 lessons of physics, German language, 2 lessons of English conversation...) with a danger of being examined from any of them.
However! I had avoided most of my duties yesterday and wasn't examined so I call it a clever and successful move. Nice.

My friend promised me that she will (finally) decide today where is she going to go for her university studies and I'm quite sure she won't decide until the next week. As the deadline to apply on most universities in Czech Republic is the end of February, she should better decide quickly.

Anddddd I think I will play some BGs and then SC2, as there is nothing to learn for tommorow (except maths, but that is not a problem).

Checklist for today

There are these unpleasant things I have to deal about today. The things I should have dealt with already in the past week, but I haven't.
  1. learn physics, I'm not quite sure what do I have to learn, so I'll deal with it later
  2. learn english as we are examined from "jobs and occupations" words in our conversation class tommorow, but I don't have the words yet, so I'm going to skip this point too
  3. answer questions about "jobs and occupations", which I was actually supposed to have last week, but I'm without access to printer right now, so I'll postpone it a little bit
  4. find my grades from past years so I can get them confirmed for my university application, I already asked mother where they were and she said she will find them for me, so I'm cool here ^^
  5. learn for social sciences exam...meh, I think there are more important tasks at hand, so screw that
  6. do some daily quests in WoW - let's start here. ^^
Anyway, there are these news I was pretty surprised about when I read them on wikipedia - the Prime Minister of Italy Silvio Berlusconi has some problems with law. Again. After all the shady things this man could pull off he will probably get busted for banging an underage whore. Tough luck man.

Muse grammied

Muse seems to have recieved Grammy (Best Rock Album) for The Resistance. Weird.
I like Muse, Black Holes and Revelations was great and possibly my most listened album of all time, but I was dissapointed by their performance on The Resistance. Sure, few of the songs were good (Resistance, MK Ultra, Exogenesis), but the rest...I don't know, it seemed to me like I was listening to Queen. 

About the rest of the awards, well...who the hell is Lady Antebellum? 5 Grammies for a country band, really? I get from the list of awards here that they are (maybe) quite well known in the US, but I've never heard of them. Or maybe it's just because I'm not really that into country music...

Today seems to be the right day to finally start blogging.

Now, I'm not quite sure what I am going to write about,as I realised that as much as I love prime numbers (and I mean it -we do all the things people and numbers in love do), I don't think there's anything to say about them other than the definiton - primes are numbers which can be divided only by number 1 and the number itself.

Ok,I'm done with primes and now I'll stick to something else for the rest of my time on this blog,hopefully for longer than a week.
But not today. There are these physics, history and social sciences (or whatever it's called in english ^^) exams on Thursday, so I'm gonna play some Starcraft today to get ready for them appropriately. MY LIFE FOR AIUR!
