I'm obviously using numbers sampling to make a point and not using them as some factual metric.
As a scientist (well, give it another year), this statement REALLY pisses me off. You phd-less wanker, stop making statements like this where you try to show off, but end up screwing up so badly it just showcases your ignorance.
Seriously; misrepresentation of scientific methods does a LOT of harm. It's what has allowed ciggarette companies for years to lie about the harmfull effects of smoking; it has allowed oilcompanies to fund bullshit agencies to deny global warming and it has allowed shit like intelligent design to even be discussed.
You might make a 'game' and release it for free, but you never have and never will will have a phd, not if you can in all seriousness make a statement like the one above.
Your debating skills suck as do your logic skill. In future, please don't use language you obviously know nothing about.
Let's start with when it is and isn't ok to use numbers sampling [sic]. To start with, never. It is not an actual science, as your sentence makes it out to be. Statistics may be what you're looking for, in which sampling is a technique.
Number sampling is like ...I dunno, I have never had to think up such an incorrect analogy, but here goes... numerical adding, a technique used in simple arithmetic.
Now, the sampling of numbers is always used to make a point. The point is always a factual metric. If it were not, your use of statistics would be based on invalid assumptions, and any conclusion (point) you derived from it would be baseless...incorrect data in gives incorrect data out, almost per definition.
IOW: once you start using numbers, those numbers must be correct (within reasonable margin of error) or the conclusion you make has such a huge error marging that the conclusion is meaningless. To use a statistical technique to make a point is only valid if you actually use the technique (which in this case means using correct numbers and developing a conclusion based off the output...which you can't do if the output is incorrect).
You know, fuck this....it just gives me chills to think in how many ways that one sentence of yours is incorrect. You cannot have developed your own game-engine; you must have a bought it. A person with such weak logical skills cannot use quaternions.
