      Should do a clip on toxoplasmosis, complete with Usa navy research, and ALL of dr Flegr findings . Also , how the misguided veterinarians cover it up (the eggs live 2years in bleach water and still hatch , cats constantly re-infect themselves) . Effects: miscarriages, birth defects, headaches, flu symptoms, eye floaters, detached retina, cysts(often misdiagnosed) , schizophrenia , Parkinson’s, mild to severe depression, wild behavior

      AI can't drive cars yet because interpreting a 3D environment in real time takes about 5 or 6 multi-core blade servers. Its not impossible, it would just be at least the size of the engine, and about the same cost as the rest of the car.
      This is why Google and GM's practical attempts have both focused on mapping just the ground, a tech that was developed for those video parking guides and proximity alert systems you see now. That can be done with cheap CPU in a much smaller space. It works fine at low speeds on an empty road, but when Google tried to put their auto-driving car on a real road it got overwhelmed trying to map other car movements and slammed into a parked car trying to deal with other cars turning at an imperfect and unanticipated angle.

A time will come when you realize you haven't thought about them all day/week, and you'll be flooded with feelings of guilt.... but it's crucial that you process that emotion and realize that they would want you to move on and be happy. 🙂 God bless you and good luck.

      As an artist this has been so exhausting. I’m honestly grateful for something about it that isn’t extremely depressing. I hope he revisits it more critically in the future, but I suspect that would be a main piece and there’s still a lot going on with it that needs to happen before they can get super in depth about it

      It's honestly not fair because John is on HBO. He has such little restrictions on content and he has an expanded budget, a budget that isn't run on ad revenue.
      But if you look at Seth's show, it has done some amazing things since covid started. They really leaned into their internet audience and have continued to lean in. Like Seth's corrections isn't even on television and was nominated. Not even the show lol, the segment lol. So things are changing. If we really do get Conan on HBO I'd like to see that wild ride.

    Midjourney had a Version 4 update a few months ago and all of these images are way better now. You'd honestly be amazed at how lovingly John looks at this cabbage now, with no other person.
    And that shows just how quickly these AIs are improving. We're all replaceable, AIs are just better at this now than we are. If it took 6 months for it to not understand how to do one person marrying a cabbage to making John a cabbagophile in total love with the cabbage and having Hollywood level CGI marriages to a plant, how confident are you that your boss won't look at your wage in 1/2/3 years and think "Yeah but ChatGPT though?"

    The captcha checks with traffic lights is one of the best examples on the usage of crowd intelligence.
    Google and other providers actually use this data generated by real world users to train their algorithms.
    It started with recaptcha v2 where you would enter the home number from an address plate (this data was used for google maps).
    You can test this because depending on the type of captcha you can submit wrong answers and still pass the test.

    Florals: stunning. Groom: dapper. Vows: heartwarming. Overall, a beautifully put together wedding. Though, considering the plain tulle of the veil, I think the cabbage might have waited until the last minute to order their attire. I can understand favoring simplicity for whatever reason; maybe it didn't want to be a bridezilla, or the elaborate beaded lace styles just don't reflect the cabbage's personality, or wanting to keep costs down; but it's your wedding day. You're going to want to remember this for the rest of your life. At least have the veil hemmed instead of leaving the edge raw.

      Last year with no place left to turn I prayed to God in repentance then begged for help with all my heart, "I was until then a lifelong Atheist."
      I then had a dream of Jesus coming before God and he spoke of the Tabernacle in perfect context, "A word I didn't know existed because I've never read the bible", and the love I felt from Jesus was unlike anything I've ever felt before - A lifetime of joy every second - It brought me to sobbing and it changed my life forever.
      I've had other miracles since, a few being a light turning on in answer to deeply needful prayer 6 times, seeing a orb of light hours before a major surgery, seeing an Angel in a dream the night my mother prayed for me to see one, "Without telling me", and so much more.
      Know that God and Jesus ARE real and that they love us deeply. Let go of your hatred and Imagine yourself holding the people who've hurt you. Tell them you love and forgive them and I believe we should do our best to follow, "I've failed many times", the 10 commandments.
      Always have hope. I believe that love is the answer.

    If your working on AI- don’t be a stupid droid about it😊 IF we’re so smart then we probably should realize by now we can make machines -NOT robots but machines that don’t move (or if they do they’re smaller than us so that we could always overtake them no matter what) working for us. In those days having a job will be a pleasure and a privilege and everybody would want to work to contribute!❤#ubuntu!!!

    John Oliver prompts are spiralling out of control on Midjourney's discord, and for good reasons. I played with it for and hour or so, and while some graphics were a bit hit and miss (baroque Silvio Berlusconi destroying a watermelon in a Ghost in the Shell urban landscape was a particular letdown for me), "John Oliver as a renaissance baby that hates satan, but loves cabbage" and "futuristic John Oliver as a Beksiński mermaid" produced lovely results. One of those faces, I believe.

    As the wedding photo shows, these things are still more A than I. Since nobody married a cabbage in real life(Until you), it drew on more "normal" wedding pictures. But after this episode, future cabbage wedding A.I. photos will be able to draw on your beautiful ceremony.

    Had an old kiddie record -that I really enjoyed until my dad in a fit of "why can't you keep you room clean"- threw against the wall and broke (oddly out of character for him) from a series called East of the Sun and West of the Moon.
    It would start with an adult talking to some kids, and they were all on a roller coaster. The Foley was very effective and one really got the effect of the cars taking off.. off of the tracks.. to... THE LAND OF ENCHANTMENT [or something or other].
    There was a prince and a witch and a forlorn girl. He sent him manservant to the shrew's garden to collect a pea. The wind howled forlornly. The girl didn't herself, really; was just kinda forlorn.
    Anyway, the witch would address the girl (who was basically like captive slave or something- I don't know what, exactly-) "my Little Cabbage".
    Oh, and the garden was called
    "The Garden of Woe".
    Who would name their garden that?
    Most people have The Princess and the Pea all wrong. It's not about complaining. I mean, come on! It's about being totally....
    Ok, I'm too tired and it's late. Just accept there can be a whole diatribe, but my heart is just isn't into it.
    Johnny, remember our long walks on the beach? Yeah, I don't either. 'Cause I don't think we did. Unless you count that night I showed you the vultures at night by the little theatre, roosting on the driftwood.
    Or was that Seth Meyers?
    Not roosting on the driftwood, mind you.
    But I ramble.
    (Cue music) Rambling Rose...!
    -God, when did I learn to hate nostalgic music?
    Maybe because I'm just steamed about a broken record.
    I mean, Strawberry Fields Forever?? That's just some BULLSHIT. But probably just as well. I mean, forever is a mighty long time...
    Somebody stop me. No, not you, Random Person Just Driving By:
    -or maybe Seth.
    Didn't I say stop me?
    It's not that I'm pointless. Perhaps too many frustrated points.
    Give a widdle bit?
    Give a widdle bit of your time to to me.
    I quit.
    (See you later.)
    -P.S. A strikeout font?
    I gotta burn something, don't I?
    Really. When did that turn into my trip?
    Dammn it.
    I am sorry.
