Finite State Morons

Ever wondered how Indian National Media pounds on an issue which requires serious discussions but instead it resorts to politician bashing and blaming the “system”. Or worthless issues become breaking news and length debates are carried on for example Rakhi Sawant’s wedding and Shashi Tharoor’s tweet controversy. Here is how I see it:

    nice one….the automata doesn't have a starting and an ending state….the pink state(looking for an issue) can be a possible starting state while for the ending state issue, i don't think that we can have an ending state possible in this scenario. So, as you said on chat, we can call it with some other name. May be "Finite State Indian Media Automata" or you can suggest some new funky name for it.

    Actually it is more of a Buchi Automata (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buchi_automata). FSM is for finite input but Indian media like a BA works on infinite magnitude of crap.And well there is no way to know in which state did this behemoth started

    shuruaat thodi mushkil hai…ye nahin pata ki issue dhoondne kahan jaana hai…FSMoron mein condition daalni padegi

    @VM: Please elaborate on the conditions. Ye bakar automata to anant hai to iski starting state pata karna mushqil hai

    nahin starting state to clear hai….looking for issue…hamara confusion ye tha ki…us state se do arrows hai..but no condition…like looking for issue…se dono jagah jaa sakte hai

    @VM: interesting… then it is non deterministic 😀 they can treat serious issues as worthless issues and "claim tautologies as insights" 😀
