The Turing Test poisoned the minds of generations of AI enthusiasts, because its criteria is producing text that persuades observers it was written by a human.

The result? Generative AI text products designed to "appear real" rather than produce accurate or ethical outputs.

It *should* be obvious why it's problematic to create a piece of software that excels at persuasion without concern for accuracy, honesty or ethics. But apparently it's not.

As a cat โ€œownerโ€, I propose the following canonical rule: the cat face emojis are to be used to signal sarcasm or insincerity:
๐Ÿ˜ข = sadness; ๐Ÿ˜ฟ = aw diddums
๐Ÿ˜ฑ = horror; ๐Ÿ™€ = who could have predicted this?
๐Ÿ˜ = adoration; ๐Ÿ˜ป = never buy me this
๐Ÿ˜‚ = rofl; ๐Ÿ˜น = schadenfreude

@DanDubb tusky works well for me. I tried some others when I first joined, but they weren't as good imo.

Not all construction work is equally enjoyable. For example, enlarging a drilled hole is boring, but fastening pieces of metal together is riveting.

Some people were fired by mistake, apparently. ๐Ÿ™„ I'd rather shit in my hands and clap than return to a place that treats their teams so poorly. ๐Ÿคฎ businessinsider.com/some-tweep

I saw someone confuse etymology and entomology, and it bugged me in a way I couldn't put into words.

Walking through the Newtown lanes, I passed a privet bush in full bloom. I hate that sickly sweet smell and it's a main contributor to my seasonal allergies - it's a weed that was everywhere when I was growing up in the country.

Masks are good, though. I could barely smell anything this time
