 Because of an enduring personnel problem, pets will now be matched to simulate the character of their 'owners'. This is meant to generate a personal rapport that approximates the identification of one to other. Secretly, these pets will record everything their owner does for posterity. Because of that enduring personnel problem, the owner's next-life parents will be clones programed with the data obtained from their pets.

The problem is job descriptions.

Sometimes, when a major internet service goes down, I imagine that the United States has been annihilated in a major nuclear attack.

But I always end up disappointed.

Me, I've been pleasantly surprised for like 75 years and counting.

YouTub3 just crashed; I was checking-out maze-solving algorithms. Nothing to see here.

Yeah, it got me too.  At first I thought it was my browser fucking up, so I deleted all my cookies and history....but nope.  Google fucks up again (probably)

I was projecting a negative value judgement: "man this guy needs to get a life" I kept saying to myself about the person I was watching. Then the irony hit me hard when it crashed on Godel's bit.  :lulz:

[edit: I was bored and looking forward to the bit on Godel's incompleteness theorem, clicked on it, and then everything went down. For some reason I find this marvelous]

  Outside of you taking liberties with my given name.

Yes.  I misanthropic in a way that makes Paul of Tarsus look like Mr Rogers.  Everyone thinks I'm joking about that.  I'm not.  I really hate that I have to put up with you fucking simians, and one of the three proofs I have of a malevolent deity is that he knows I hate monkeys, and he put me on a planet with 6.75 billion of you.

conversations between a komodo dragon and a wildebeast while the dragon is following the beast waiting for it to die from the infection it got from its bite.
Like this. Can see a monkey claiming to be the wildebeest's agent trying to negotiate story rights with dragon.

Common reasons to self-identify as weird.

4. It was a false positive: by induction of a whack detection/recognition system.

The reason that current engagement algorithms select for outrage is actually because such strong emotions are all kinds of sticky. Not only does outrage elicit an immediate increase in responsive-ity, the "release of nor-epinephrine strengthens the long-term potentiation of memory" in service of maintaining interest for greater durations of time.

[edit: just realized this is like essentially ghostbusters II]

Something about this exchange is decidedly unsettling.  I think I'm going to go and stand behind several inches of steel plate.

I know and have met quite a few atheists who, landing on the spectrum far from this ideal, are predominantly selfish individuals who would give up on CPR and who would selfishly tuck tail and run, leaving their comrades to die.

I was trying to teach myself to deglaze a pan, and accidentally made a small quantity of what I can only describe as "teriyaki caramel".
I don't know how to repeat this, and suspect it would be unwise to try.
It kept on whispering, "put that in your pipe and smoke it."

Cain/E.O.C:
Yeah, I still dont understand GPU's very well. when I'm doing neural nets tho, I know I need about 4Gigs, at least thats what works on the desktop.

I did a quick and dirty price comparison, and a GTX 680 4GB only costs around $40 less than a GTX 1060, which is listed as 3GB but is effectively 16GB of virtual RAM.  Given the difference, I would go for the latter as the price difference is negligible but having more VRAM is always nice - it will allow you to do other things while the neural nets work away.
Current Status: Well, at least 1080 is divisible by pi. Thar goes my future in IT and liberal democracy.

That number after the three letter acronym, I think it's related to the clock rate. Not sure you need that to be big if you're doing nets/demoscene art instead of full texture scene rendering at 60 fps for hyper-responsive high-end gameplay. If you were looking for a laptop, one of those GPU's may require breakout via thunderbolt. Just my 2 cent.
