Why you like Apple?
  • I like that I am their primary customer rather than advertisers as with Google.

    I like that their desktop OS is a Unix variant unlike Microsoft’s (although this matters to me less and less over time).

  • Contestant Generations by Season

    I finally got caught up on season 46. After stumbling on a discussion on /r/survivor about generational1 participation and play styles I decided to waste a whole bunch of time and pulled together some data2. I thought it was interesting and thought I’d share.

    ---

    Number of contestants by generation by season

    | Season | Gen Z | Millennials | Gen X | Boomers | Silent | |---|---|---|---|---|---| | 1 | 0 | 0 | 10 | 3 | 3 | | 2 | 0 | 0 | 10 | 6 | 0 | | 3 | 0 | 0 | 8 | 7 | 1 | | 4 | 0 | 1 | 10 | 4 | 1 | | 5 | 0 | 0 | 11 | 4 | 1 | | 6 | 0 | 1 | 11 | 4 | 0 | | 7 | 0 | 3 | 9 | 4 | 0 | | 8 | 0 | 1 | 9 | 7 | 1 | | 9 | 0 | 3 | 11 | 3 | 1 | | 10 | 0 | 6 | 10 | 4 | 0 | | 11 | 0 | 9 | 5 | 3 | 1 | | 12 | 0 | 5 | 6 | 5 | 0 | | 13 | 0 | 4 | 13 | 3 | 0 | | 14 | 0 | 4 | 11 | 4 | 0 | | 15 | 0 | 7 | 8 | 1 | 0 | | 16 | 0 | 7 | 8 | 5 | 0 | | 17 | 0 | 8 | 6 | 4 | 0 | | 18 | 0 | 7 | 6 | 3 | 0 | | 19 | 0 | 10 | 7 | 3 | 0 | | 20 | 0 | 7 | 10 | 3 | 0 | | 21 | 0 | 8 | 6 | 5 | 1 | | 22 | 0 | 7 | 7 | 4 | 0 | | 23 | 0 | 10 | 6 | 2 | 0 | | 24 | 0 | 11 | 4 | 3 | 0 | | 25 | 0 | 11 | 3 | 4 | 0 | | 26 | 0 | 13 | 6 | 1 | 0 | | 27 | 0 | 12 | 6 | 2 | 0 | | 28 | 0 | 8 | 10 | 0 | 0 | | 29 | 0 | 12 | 4 | 2 | 0 | | 30 | 0 | 11 | 6 | 1 | 0 | | 31 | 0 | 9 | 8 | 3 | 0 | | 32 | 1 | 11 | 4 | 1 | 1 | | 33 | 1 | 10 | 8 | 1 | 0 | | 34 | 0 | 12 | 6 | 2 | 0 | | 35 | 0 | 15 | 3 | 0 | 0 | | 36 | 4 | 13 | 3 | 0 | 0 | | 37 | 1 | 14 | 4 | 1 | 0 | | 38 | 4 | 10 | 4 | 0 | 0 | | 39 | 2 | 14 | 2 | 2 | 0 | | 40 | 0 | 11 | 9 | 0 | 0 | | 41 | 6 | 7 | 5 | 0 | 0 | | 42 | 5 | 8 | 4 | 1 | 0 | | 43 | 6 | 10 | 2 | 0 | 0 | | 44 | 6 | 9 | 3 | 0 | 0 | | 45 | 9 | 7 | 2 | 0 | 0 | | 46 | 7 | 10 | 1 | 0 | 0 |

    • Only Gen X has appeared in every season
    • Only Season 32 had a representative from all 5 Generations
    • Seasons 3, 28, 35, and 40 only had 2 Generations represented
    • Season 33 was "Gen X vs Millennials" but had a Boomer and a Zoomer (by USC Standards)

    1 Generations are arbitrary, inconsistent, and ill defined. I used USCs definitions 3 for no particular reason other than I had to pick something

    2 A contestant is counted for each appearance in a season at the age of their appearance in each season. Contestant’s generation was determined by <Year of Filming> minus <Age>. Age and Filming dates were sourced from Wikipedia

    President Biden is the First President Elected From The Silent Generation

    This is kinda blowing my mind right now.

    I know generation bounds can be inconsistent, but I’m using this as the guideline:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Generation#List_of_social_generations

    That puts Clinton, W, Obama, and Trump all as Baby Boomers and Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, and HW all as Greatest Generation.

    Could a link to the modlog for moderated posts be added here?

    I’m often curious what has happened but not frequently enough to know offhand how to get to the modlog or filter it to find the post in question.

    Having a direct link here would be awesome but I’m not sure how feasible it would be, if at all…

    I really wanted to share track 11 off the album linked below but couldn’t find it anywhere (ok; I only tried looking on YouTube but gave up after seeing neither Apple Music nor Spotify acknowledged its existence):

    Anyway; I’m just going to post the song actually on the soundtrack since it’s likely the only song anyone might possibly recognize…

    Just moved from VA last year where we also had pollening, but nothing like this. My lord.

    Video is from my security camera which apparently the IR light does a fantastic job of illuminating the pollen that is just thick in the air here.

    Surf fishing gear advice

    Hey all looking for gear advice to get started surf fishing. I’m planning to target red drum and pompano along the Crystal Coast. I’m hoping to be able to get two rigs for under $400 if that’s not completely wishful thinking.

    Speaking of rigs, I’m thinking I’ll want to use high/low or pompano rigs? Also open to suggestions on everything from hook size (I think maybe 4/0 for the drum and 2/0 for the pompano?) to main line.

    I’m really starting from nothing here.

    Thanks for any recommendations!
