Dear god

I'm coaching 9 year olds in soccer, and I can't ever convince them that it isn't a good idea to all jam up next to each other near the ball. We will get the ball, and 3 of them will close in right next to each other, no opposing players anywhere near them.

It's demoralizing

I'm learning simple game AI coding and it never dawned on me until now that a team sport is a perfect, formulaic, well-defined space to play around and learn in-

like- I've been doing simple RPG fights, but I gotta determine 'well how would a monster that doesnt exist operate in this world i'm making up'. Seems like a team sport would basically involve doing some reading on what each position is ideally supposed to do, and then coding each agent to do the thing, yeah?

I don't know enough about the topic yet to be able to say if it would actually be 'easier', or if I just wanna do it out of a perverse desire to make soccer 2: the roguelike

There's the "project.log" subforum of CoC. There is/was a "post your glitches" thread (i think in CoC) where people posted funny game and graphics glitches, but I don't know if it's still active. YOSPOS has a "post your idiot spare time projects" thread where I think people would appreciate this stuff.

Canada is fifth -> their value is 5 (=bit under 5.4)
Denmark is sixth -> their value is 6 (=bit over 5.4)

Axis is scaled logarithmically to hide the fact that it's just a linear progression.

Oh man, on a similar note I had a junior colleague tell me that his advisor had told him to sort his predictor and response variables independently before running a regression, because it made the R squared values so much higher. It took me a surprisingly long time to convince them of just how dumb that was, but in the end the thing that did it was showing them that you could get really tight correlations between two strings of completely random numbers that way.

They're not making up new numbers, they're analysing the data using a standard methodology in the field.

Breaking which observation came from which subject (or sample or whatever) isn't standard... The only redeeming aspect to sorting each column independently is that the mistake/fraud would be detectably egregious.

Not even slightly. This is like taking a bunch of petri dish samples and swapping the labels around so that the results confirm your hypothesis. It's straight up fraud but being too stupid to realise it is fraud.
