If you don't know, don't give up & let some hateful profiteer get in your head!
They'll just feed you misinformation & selfishness.
Put in the work to find the truth.
As easy as Google'ing 'voteyes'

You may have missed this earlier. Piracy came close to disappearing, then streaming companies decided to push for better margins. Guess what happened next?

This is a fascinating story about the foreign language effect, which finds that making decisions in a second language often leads to more logical choices.

For example, when given the trolly problem, more people will kill one person to save many when considering the scenario in a second language.

@Andrea my brother made paper from paper wasp nests. These were donated by our mother after she got rid of a mass of nests from the eaves. Unfortunately I don't have pictures of the finished product but am told it made great paper

"As of now, 15 September 2023, the comic book property called Fables, including all related Fables spin-offs and characters, is now in the public domain. What was once wholly owned by Bill Willingham is now owned by everyone, for all time. It’s done, and as most experts will tell you, once done it cannot be undone. Take-backs are neither contemplated nor possible."

“Note the pattern: a willingness to ignore the details of what could go wrong, YOLO it and just test it out, and the assumption that if nothing goes wrong when you do that, it means that everything is fine and nothing else could possibly go wrong.”

People drive Teslas knowing the guy in charge does shit like this. Hoo boy

It took me a while to realize that it was a widely propagated typo, but much of the AI being promoted now is actually "derp learning".

This startup claimed it would take your 2D sketches and turn them into 3D models using AI "magic." It turns out that the "magic" is poorly-paid workers in the developing world.

I thought plums were only meant as breakfast food
Saved for someone else, but not for me
Plums were out to get me
So cold and so sweet
Delicious stonefruit haunted all my dreams

Then I saw her fridge
Now I'm a plum thiever
Please forgive
My obvious crime
Cold sweet plums, I'm a plum thiever,
I'm gonna leave her a short rhyme
