comment Are American media controlled mostly by Jews?
@IlyaMelamed I agree with you. I don't believe there is a conspiracy. There doesn't need to be one for there to be a bias due to over-representation. There isn't a conspiracy to promote rich white men from congress, but there is a bias because congress is mostly rich white men.

comment Are American media controlled mostly by Jews?
@IlyaMelamed If Jews represent a disproportionate membership in the ranks of the media (or any group) they have control that is greater than their proportional value in society alone. If that control is centralized, organized, or utilized isn't really important. If there is something that Jews care dis-proportionally about, like the tastiness of Bagels with Lox, that collective belief would manifest in the media because people focus on what effects them. It would be control by cultural bias, but that's still control. No?

comment Are "ectomorph", "mesomorph" and "endomorph" valid and useful descriptors?
I'd be interested in any information about people transitioning between types. I, being only one potentially outlying data point, was very thin as an adolescent and am now obese. It seems to me that information about transitions between types would counter at least the idea of your type being intrinsic.

comment Are American media controlled mostly by Jews?
Seeing lots of addressing of the table, but not much about the underlying question here. Are Jews a disproportionately large percentage of members of the media? I ask this as an Atheist of Jewish decent. Considering how small a percentage of the population Jews make up, it seems that the answer is yes. But I'd love to know the answer to that, regardless of how "in control" we/they are.

comment Why were the Jedi who tried to arrest Palpatine so rubbish?
@joshbirk I mean rubbish here in the sense that they can't be expected to do much better than this against an opponent like Sidious. I'm challenging the supposition that the OP is making that Jedi should do better than these ones did. I don't feel that my bullet points are important enough to the answer to worry about responding.

comment Client-side dice rolls in turn-based game
You are correct. There are no ways to prevent all cheating other than keeping the software for running the game on an impartial (owned by you) server. These methods will prevent the players from changing the random values. You can keep the exact methods of generating the random numbers secret and encrypt the data. But this will of course not be invulnerable to snooping. You could also expose the random value to the players somehow, at least then both players have the same advantage. All non-deterministic multiplayer games have this issue.
