Or just entirely clueless
As a recent immigrant to Northwegian Dakota, and a longtime resident of Alabama, this comic is relevant to my interests.
And yes, I believe "clueless" is the appropriate adjective. Stereotypical in that wonderful SATW way, in that it's mostly true...
That's me about Occupy Wall Street-
I really don't have an opinion on the same. I am so lost.
Norway was very proud of their wild albino moose, which they had lovingly named Albin, and the local hunting community had agreed not to hurt it.
Then along comes a Danish hunter who hadn't herd about this rule, and shoots it. The Norwegian anger seemed like it would never end.
In Denmark the case has mainly been turned into a joke. Not because of the death of poor Albin which everybody agrees is sad and stupid, but because for a while the Norwegian media acted like all Danes ever born had put a bullet in Albin personally, when the truth is that most would run in the opposite direction at the sight of anything with horns.
That is not funny, that is a bit sad.
Oh Norway, James Earl Jones already won the part for the big no .
Laughed so hard at that second one.
An n-bit system can store a value as high as (2^n)-1.
Sort of. An n-bit system can hold 2^n numbers. Some start with 0, in which case they'll be able to store any value between 0 and (2^n)-1. Others use negative numbers, in which case they'll generally be able to store any value between -(2^(n-1)) and (2^(n-1))-1.
Is a way to store negative numbers. What about it?
I know about signed vs. unsigned, yes Just noting that you weren't really giving the full story.
Just pointing out that:
I don't really see why you raised this in the first place, I think everyone who cared knew anyway. I think it was pretty obvious from the original comic that it was using two's complement.
Because I corrected the statement that "2^15-1 is the maximum number a 16-bit system can hold". Yes, it's obvious that the comic referred to signed integers. That doesn't make the statement that you can only use signed integers any less false.
Meh, I was just going with the simple version of why the comic was funny.
SS-18, yours is a red x.
