That could kill not only groups of stones but also players! :skull_and_crossbones:

When I was in…, let’s call it junior high, the guys liked to fool around by leaning against a wall, holding their breath and have someone press against their solar plexus until they passed out. I think that’s more dangerous than overoxygenizing your cells. Underoxygenating. :stuck_out_tongue:


#184

I don’t understand: is it so easy to faint? Hold the breath and push the abdomen?

Actually, it seems that the deep breathing, because of expelling a lot of CO2, actually decreases the oxygen to muscles and brain. It’s another way to suffocate yourself. Exactly the opposite of what Hof says.

I know what smurph is taking about. I think he meant the jugular and carotid arteries though. … at least that’s how I’ve seen it done.


#186

No, they didn’t strangle each other, even though that would also be an option. Pressure on the solar plexus limits bloodflow through the aorta. Similar effect though.


#187

crazy… learn something new every day


#188

Sure doesn’t look so good for Pika…


#189


#190

Is this an actual picture? No photoshop? :open_mouth:


#191

Apart from the fisheye distortion, it looks like sharpen, gamma, color curve adjustment, burn/multiply.


#192

Absolutely awesome picture, could you please name the source/originator, @b_runner? I’d also dearly like to see the unedited photo.

Illustrates the “World of Go” perfectly, IMO.


#193

Yes, there are some filters, but I was asking about fisheye distortion: I’ve seen drawings like this but the caption for this picture says “Put my 360° cam on the Go board”.

After that I looked for 360 cams on internet and learned a lot. :smiley:

I didn’t know they were so small and affordable. Mind blowing!


#194

Are you sure that’s Go? Judging by the board position, it looks more like gomoku to me (“five-in-a-row”.) In fact, if you look at the very move that Pika’s playing, he’s stopping the bulbasaur from playing there himself and making a long enough line to win.


#195

I think you are absolutely right, and, shamefully I have to say, I didn’t know Gomoku… Until now.
So it should be Pokemon Go Bang!

#197

Hm, I don’t get it… and I was there! :]


#198

Image? Newer times?
This image didn’t exist 25 years ago?


#199

Ah, I was wondering if there was something special to it and couldn’t find anything. But in the context of it being special because it’s commonplace now, that does make sense. :slight_smile:

One like for teaching me “abecedarius”.
