Please tell me if you know of any method to implement the Miller-Rabin Primality Test (a common test used to check if a number is a prime number or not) without iterating though k from 1 to log2(n-1) when trying to formulate n-1 as the product of 2km, K being an integer and m being an odd integer? A shortcut would be very nice, as the current method seems insanely clunky but I can't think of another way to do it.

Oh, and official question, even though I've asked a nontrivial amount of the audience already: Go look at this picture and tell me whether I look sexy, all fucked up on some illegal substance, ugly as sin, or any combination of the above. Those that have already answered don't have to, of course.

100 comments, all from the second paragraph.

Fuck Her Gently?
How the hell are you watching that kick ass video on TV? It's a bit too X rated for cable and all.

Or maybe you're watching them live...

Either way you're a lucky bastard.

Re: Fuck Her Gently?
Check the timestamp. Said post was made at dark a.m., when TV over here is *allowed* to show such things, thus I was watching it on Kerrang. Or do I now have to preceed each post with "Warning: This contains shit which may appear weird to folks unused to dealing with people from countries other than their own."?

Re: Fuck Her Gently?
Whoa, buddy.

Sorry if I struck a nerve, but I hadn't read enough of your posts to determine you're from another country.

Now I know (and, really, knowing is half the battle)

Re: Fuck Her Gently?
There's a profile right there on the link bar, in which it's stated pretty obviously that I am English. I'm sick and tired of people assuming I'm American as a default setting. Ignorantia non excusat and all...

Re: Fuck Her Gently?
Whether you accept ignorance as an excuse or not I read and replied to your post while looking through the friends list of a friend. I didn't even check your journal, I was just congratulating you on good taste in music.

Get over your Englishness and take a compliment.

Wow, you really are new to Stew's journal...

a) Don't take it that personally (yet), and
b) Trust me. This has nothing (okay, very little) to do with Stew's Englishness.

Re: Fuck Her Gently?
Wait wait wait wait... so... you're... not American?


Guess you need to dry your wit out some more. Leave it out overnight, should be drier in the morning. ;)

Well Stew...
I don't know the solution to your mega-math problem, but I can say that any solution is always laid before you, you just have to find it. Feel free to break something in effigy of that bit of advice, my grandfather said that to me once when I was working on a Metal-Chain-Puzzle and almost finished. I hate puzzles.

Anyways, RE:the picture that has you in kind of fucked up on whatever drug...
It would look "sexy" if the lighting were a smidge down, and if the person viewing it had some background knowledge of the photo. A little caption saying "me after saving some chick's life" OR "me after kicking someone's ass for hitting a woman". All those tend to be sexy to the ladies. Or you could just say "Me after I got really, really, fucked up on my b-day."

All the above, obviously.
Apr. 1st, 2003 08:51 pm (UTC)
I'll second that. Shave and you might remove the "ugly as sin" bit.

Personally, I'd say you look sexy, and only partially fucked up... but then, half of the folks I associated with in high school were professional druggies, so I have high standards.

I showed the picture to a friend for an opinion, and he said (and I quote): "Someone get that dude a badass award. (and a comb)"

Holy fuck. For some reason you look a lot like Ryan, an ex...er...sleeping buddy of mine. Which is really, really weird because I've never seen any other pictures of you that look even remotely similar. So, um...sexy. Because Ryan was "sex"y. :-)

And since there seems to be lots of confusion going around about people's identities 'round here, I'm not British and I'm not a girl. Thus any confusion regarding who I am is solely the fault of anyone not capable of reading between the lines.

Yes, that's right...I'm an Israeli Hermaphrodite. :-)

Re: Israeli Hermaphrodite
You too?!

Re: Israeli Hermaphrodite
Well...only on Saturdays.

Not quite sin-like...
I'm sure that you're quite attractive in person. Really.[1] Just not really fitting my taste.[2] *cough*

-Kill, "Yarr. I'm... unattractive."

1: You can put the knife down, BC. I'm not insulting your man.
2: You can put the knife back down, BC. I'm not after your man.

Re: Answer.
Makes a refreshing change to hear.
