are you saying I need to work it out with a pencil

I’m saying you need to do the work yourself, without a calculator, and show exactly what you did to work it out so that everyone can check the process.

Number of countries of the world (estimate): 100

Number of people in each country on average (estimate): 100

Therefore 100 x 100 = 10,000 people

______________

Number of times I do a shit per day (typical day): 1

Certainty that everyone else does the same number of shits per day (typical day) as me (estimate): 100%

Assuming that 5 minutes constitutes one "time", number of times that exist in a single day: (24 hrs divided by 5mins): 288 times

______________

Certainty of shitting: 100%

You weren't asked to work out a "certainty of shitting", Crayhole (which is your new name).

you need to work out how many people are likely to be having a shit at any exact same given moment

In this section of assembler for 'Super Spike V'Ball' on the NES, why do they decrement and then increment the Y register?  I thought it might be setting the negative flag but surely the LDA would do that anyway?

 07:C83D: 84 3B   STY $3B tmp_var6_hi = #$6E
 07:C83F: 88         DEY
 07:C840: C8         INY
 07:C841: B1 2F    LDA ($2F),Y @ $86A3 = #$02
 07:C843: 30 0D    BMI $C852 end
 07:C845: 18         CLC

Is it a quicker way to drop the last bit for some reason?

Y gets loaded with 0, so it's empty.  A real headscratcher and I hope Popcorn has the requisite mathematics to find an answer.

Sometimes you realise your elected leaders are too shit and you have to save fragments of humanity yourself


There’s a limit, obviously.  I can’t endlessly step in when popcorn is being paid a living wage to cover it 24/7.  However every now and then I will give a starving African lad a sandwich.

Is there ever a jump into C840 from somewhere else?

No doubt popcorn will only be thinking of WD40 at this moment.  Quite literally a buffoon at maths, that boy

Oh man, I'm such a melon.  Let me print the full listing and you'll see where I went wrong.  Certainly a 'woods for the trees' moment:

Quote
07:C83B: A0 00    LDY #$00
 07:C83D: 84 3B    STY $3B tmp_var6_hi = #$00
 07:C83F: 88       DEY
loop:
 07:C840: C8       INY
load from table
 07:C841: B1 2F    LDA ($2F),Y @ $D31E = #$29
 07:C843: 30 0D    BMI $C852 end
 07:C845: 18       CLC
 07:C846: 65 3B    ADC $3B tmp_var6_hi = #$00
 07:C848: 85 3B    STA $3B tmp_var6_hi = #$00
if > 16
 07:C84A: C9 10    CMP #$10
 07:C84C: B0 04    BCS $C852 end
 07:C84E: C5 3A    CMP $3A tmp_var6_lo = #$00
 07:C850: 90 EE    BCC $C840 loop

ETA:  Sorry Popcorn, I'll have a think about a more interesting question.

Nope.  Mistakes are there to help you learn.

If it's not OK to make mistakes how do I learn from them.
