What's some good sites apart from 4chan, where you can mindlessly browse for hours on end?

This place can take its toll sometimes.
>>
OP pic reminds me of DXMT
nice

I dunno but I will be monitoring this thread
>>
>>25977929
https://libraryofbabel.info/
It's literally endless
>>
>>25978009
>https://libraryofbabel.info/

The fuck is this. Is there anything on here that isn't random letters and shit?
>>
>>25978042
it's a library of everything that can exist with like 255 characters. Your entire life story and a picture of you on your 6th birthday or something crazy specific is in there somewhere.
>>
>>25978072
But youll never see the picture of you at age 6 so whats the point

Bullshit. Has anyone even found a complete sentence in there, without using the search function?
>>
>>25978239
Read up on it bruh. It just randomly generates and archives this stuff.If you look through it enough, yes you will find sentences and words.
>>
>>25978239
Do you know how statistically unlikely that is? The odds are fucking astronomical. Do you know how many configurations of 255 characters relative to each other exist?
>>
>>25978422
Here's how it works explained. It's not about the practicality of it, its about the philosophy behind it.

>>25978571
No, i understand. But >>25978239
was saying >Bullshit. Has anyone even found a complete sentence in there, without using the search function?
>>
>>25978603
I mean, i'm sure it HAS happened. It's just not likely.
>>
>>25978009
I was browsing when I literally came across a page that said just this
>>
interesting. get out of here, michael.
>>
I've tried to get as psyched about that site as everyone else seems to be, but its just fucking nonsense on every page. I don't have the time to endlessly search pages in the hope of finding a word or two among hundreds of random characters.
>>
>>25978766
use the search function then
>>
>>25978805
what came first: the chicken or the egg?

how can we know that the content existed before it was looked up?
>>
>>25978904
Obviously it is. You can't store that much data on any physical object.
>>
>>25978904
so it is essentially the game
>>
>>25978904
I guess the only way to know is to look at the code
>>
>>25978766
Why does everyone think that's the point, or that that's what you should do?
>>
The thread derailed a bit, does anyone know any other interesting browsing sites?
>>
the library of babel is just another piece of evidence that the universe is purely deterministic
>>
>>25979056
It's actually probabilistic. Hard determinism has pretty much been disproven, not like there's much of a difference from the standpoint of a person anyway.
>>
as much as this website hates le reddit armie xD reddit is actually good depending on what boards you go on. Just go on not shit ones.
>>
http://z0r.de/1434
just click random or next and have fun, there are thousands of loops
>>
>>25978991
What the fuck is the point then? No matter how you spin it, it's just not interesting to look at page after page of random nonsense.
>>
>>25979128
>Hard determinism has pretty much been disproven
[citation needed]
>>
>>25979148
the earlier loops have the older internet feel to them
>>
>>25979128
>using words like "actually" when using probability
Every time.

>muh quantum physics
what if we just lack the technology to understand quantum physics? laplace's demon is a possibility that should not be ignored.
>>
>>25979153
Well, you aren't "supposed" to. It's interesting the same way staring at space is. Literally almost everything language related is there. It's like you're walking down the halls of infinity.
>>
>>25979300
this shit is so abstract and pointless. It isn't anything like staring at space, it feels forcibly convoluted and not captivating or hypnotizing like space, but frantic and endless
>>
>>25979300
So it's bullshit, k

Blox blox
>>
>>25979364
It feels like it to me, i dunno. I guess it can be pointless though. The thinking behind it is interesting though.
>>
>>25977929
z0r.de
nobody took notice of it the first time
>>
This... is...

Real life Myst

Holy fuck

You type in whatever you want within 3200 characters and the thing gives you the best match

In Myst there is basically a race of people that could write books which would teleport them to the location they 'created', but in fact nothing is created. THey are teleported through the multiverse to a location that best matches what they wrote.
