Indian counting system with lakhs and crores, pretty interesting
Maybe the deleted comment already asked this, but is it the same as ours just with different comma placement? Or way different?
It’s the same. After a 1000 is a 100,000, then 10,000,000. Thousand to lakh (100k, look up the pronunciation I’m too lazy) to crore (10 million, pronounced crowr with rolled r’s, like crow with an r at the end).
Not sure why it’s like that tbh, but it’s just different comma placement, both systems are still base 10 (idk how a country could exist with the rest of the world if they didn’t use base 10)
I mean they kinda invented 0 and base 10
Invented zero, sure, base 10, idk
Yeah most number systems in history have been base 10 cause 10 fingers, and some of them are the absolute worst \*cough\* *roman numerals* \*cough\*, the real special sauce was zero combined with a positional system
Cause for example [cuneiform numbers](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Babylonian_cuneiform_numerals) also had positioning (and base 60, they rule) BUT no 0, so it wasn't nicely standardized how to make sure "202" looked different from "22" (the "zero" would just be leaving the middle space empty)
In a way what base it was isn't even the important bit, cause with zero and writing both big numbers and fractions with this "power based on position" way, you actually just have a kickass new way to write numbers in *any* base (though with big bases you might want to do something clever with "sub-bases" to not need a bajillion symbols, like cuneiform or the awesome [kaktovik numerals](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaktovik_numerals))
The deleted comment was something like "it's terrible, there's a reason why scientists around the world use the decimal system" hence [my reply](https://www.reddit.com/r/SpeedOfLobsters/comments/z8rk9j/they_clearly_have_spoken_%E0%B6%A9/iye68s0)
It’s not just about the commas, the commas reflect how you say the number - normally you would say “2 million 228 thousand 444 votes”, but in this system it is “22 crore 28 lakh 444 votes” instead.
It is the same number, just segmented differently.
There is also “lakh crore” for tens + hundreds of millions, and then (I think) you switch to billions etc from them on as usual.
After they switch to billions, do they start grouping zeros in threes again? So there will be a patch in the middle of the number grouped in twos?
Fr I hate it such a pain to convert
How you group the digits in a big number isn't a defining property of "The Decimal System", which was even invented in India (or decimal place value numerals including zero more specifically, base 10 stuff in general is happening all over the place)
Grouping digits 3 at a time (and the modern scientific prefixes) is more like a legacy of Latin/Greek as scholarly languages in Europe
I often wish we had twelve fingers so we'd have naturally gone to a base twelve system
Only two fingers. That would be hilarious.
Not any worse than the imperial system
What does that even mean?
To my knowledge, Apple hasn’t said anything, so is he just saying this unprompted? All I can see this doing is putting more pressure on Apple to do something
Edit: Musk has apparently announced that he spoke with Apple and that Apple was never going to remove it from the App Store. Fucking called it.
Why do people even believe this guy?
He's salty apple pulled a lot of advertising from Twitter and may pull Twitter from the Appstore, due to lack of moderation, like they did with Parler.
Context for those OOTL: Musk claims Apple has [stopped advertising on Twitter](https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1597285572699074560) and has [threatened to remove Twitter from their app store](https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1597300125243944961).
As for what this Tweet is trying to achieve, who knows. Maybe he wants to engage Apple in a PR battle by preemptively framing their decision as "censorship "rather than "cracking down on hate speech", or maybe it's just because he's got a big ego and likes to see people agree with him.
This is the easiest “no comment” ever for Apple.
Apple just neutered AirDrop for chinese protestors, removing the ability to share files device to device, basically bending over for the CCP, as well as showing where their true allegiances lie
Elon doesn't care about that
I doubt he could even point China on a map tbh
I don’t think this is true. My understanding is they’ve just made it so it sits in “Contacts only” mode by default and will return to it from the “everyone” setting after 10 minutes.
It definitely dampens people’s ability to share material in untraceable ways to strangers.
They compromised with China to make MONEY?! I’m shocked
I forgot that apple is a company and I was 100% ready to accept that the fruit is sus
its not too late, apples (the fruit) can still be sus
I didn't see the "sus" and was expecting his second profile picture to be him eating an apple.
Please buy tiktok Mr elon
LET IT DIE LET IT DIE
LET IT SHRIVEL UP AND FUCKING DIE ALREADY!!!
Are you referring to amogus memes, Twitter, Elon Musk, or Apple? In all cases I 100% agree
Just among us, the rest can somewhat stay but I hated that game ever since 2020 and I hate it even more now
The game itself is pretty great, the memes are so stale they're starting to loop around. I prefer boardgames for social deduction though, more "finite state puzzle" than the fuzziness of moving around a map in real time
What was the original text?
I saw Apple iVent
*Apple was ejected.*
