    I've been playing Dreams on Ps4. Been enjoying the heck out of it. I think it has become my favorite game.

    Despite not even being his most famous speech, I think that Martin Luther King's final speech "I've Have Been to the Mountaintop" is the most amazing example of public speaking ever.

    The grand finale of Dr. King's great legacy. A speech given by a man who knew that his days were numbered. A speech given by a man who knew he would not live to see his dream come to fruition. Dr. King discusses the adversity that the Civil Rights movement had already faced and how these challenges were overcome through non violent methods. He challenges America and it's citizens to live up to the ideals of the country.

    Somewhere I read of the freedom of assembly. Somewhere I read of the freedom of speech. Somewhere I read of the freedom of press. Somewhere I read that the greatness of America is the right to protest for rights. And so just as I said, we aren't going to let dogs or water hoses turn us around. We aren't going to let any injunction turn us around. We are going on.

    The speech ends with Dr. King foreshadowing the possibility of his death, an event which would occur the very next day when MLK was assassinated at his motel in Memphis, Tennessee.

    Well, I don't know what will happen now. We've got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn't matter with me now, because I've been to the mountaintop. And I don't mind. Like anybody, I would like to live – a long life; longevity has its place. But I'm not concerned about that now. I just want to do God's will. And He's allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I've looked over. And I've seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the Promised Land. So I'm happy, tonight. I'm not worried about anything. I'm not fearing any man. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord.

    So that's my vote. What do you view as the greatest speech in history and why?

    You're not wrong to be offended. It has been my experience that many computer science academics are very bad at grasping how difficult even basic programming can be.

    I'm currently reading Dune. I think it's pretty good thus far. I don't yet see why it's praised as one of the best books of all time, but I'm not deep into it yet!

    Yes that is certainly true. I do think it's a form of programming. People already do incredible things with this game. I dreamsurf all the time and I'm consistently impressed. Have you done any dream shaping? It's really hard! Even as someone who does programming.

    I'm always tempted to put time into learning it. I just feel... guilty? It's just hard for me to justify learning this form of programming when my personal GitHub is so barren, and I could be learning things that might help me get a job in the future. If I want to make a game, I could learn something like unity and create a game while learning useful C# skills. That's just my own problem though, and doesn't take away from how amazing this game and it's community is.

    Personally though, I find it hard to motivate myself to learn the creation tools when I could be spending my time programming. Even still, the creations that other people make are consistently amazing.

    This guy is doing a cool series about the greatest of all time basketball player. In each video, he makes an argument for the GOAT status of a different player. In this one he makes the case for Tim Duncan, someone I have never really considered for GOAT. They're long videos, but they're well done. I particularly recommend his videos on Wilt Chamberlain and Bill Russell as they feature some very interesting basketball history.

    I personally find it hard to argue that Michael Jordan isn't the GOAT, but that's the most boring opinion ever and could certainly stem from my own bias. Jordan was nuts though. Talk about a player who was just completely unstoppable.

    Who is your GOAT?

    It actually took me like 3 or 4 attempts to get past the Tutorial. Once you're past it though, the game REALLY opens up. Choice paralysis never goes away though lol.

    Oh I see. No. That isn't what I meant. Although, I now see how it came across that way. I actually think that this ban is about 3 years too late. My problem moreso lies in the fact that I don't believe the Reddit team is doing this for the right reasons. Spez is on record saying some shady things and I doubt he's suddenly seen the light.

    Nothing wrong with banning hate speech, I just think that Reddit seems very disingenuous. Furthermore, I just don't want to waste my time on the website anymore. It's very addictive.
