Musk walks a fine line between genius and bankruptcy. Sooner or later he'll go under. I'm just hoping that doesn't dissuade the corporations that space is a fucking profitable enterprise.

It'd be nice if we colonised the galaxy as some kind of utopian star trek, greater good of humanity project but that's not going to happen. Human beings are neither great nor good, they're greedy little self centred fuckheads who will only engage in something if they can make a quick buck on it.

In the real world it's either greedy corporations racing for the mining rights to the asteroid belt and setting up overpriced chain restaurants in low lunar orbit or else humanity ends in this pathetic fucking gravity well we call Earth.

Either option suits me just fine.

Yeah, BBC showed an clip from a state interview last night, filmed just before the hit apparently. "Is there anything you can't forgive?", Putin "Betrayal" (comedy turn to camera)

So, assuming that Putin ordered the hit. Further assuming that he knew a nerve toxin assassination was not going to go unnoticed by whom it may concern. He must have known zombie thatcher was going to get all hardass rhetoric on the subject. What's his next move?

Is this some tzarish dick waving thing? Like "what the fuck you gonna do about it now I have the US President in my back pocket?" or am I missing something?

Look on the bright side - at least america didn't vote to abandon it's entire economy :lulz:

I gave up about half way through season 4 and fuck did I feel a blast of good old fashioned catholic guilt. I mean zombies are the nearest thing I have to a religion and fuck if I could stand to watch one more episode of Rick fucking Grimes pretending he could be a hero or act or even develop some kind of rudimentary personality or fucking anything  :argh!:

So I've been making a man. With blonde black hair and a tan corset. Full body, cos it's time I quit fucking around with dismembered heads and built the whole shebang. This is a mountain of work and will take me weeks but when I'm done (whether it comes together awesome or crashes and burns) I will totally be in a position to pick up where I left off with the Nessies project and see that fucker right through to completion! Shit is going to kick serious ass!

Serendipitous. I was ruminating on exactly the same notion tonight, only nowhere near as succinctly!

Hair is a total trip, Bobby. Gets set up all on it's own with a fancy interface to manipulate it. The computational physics modelling that goes on behind the final render is staggering. Here's how it looks before I commit to a 4 hours of busy pointer.

Pretty Boy Zeke. When there's no room for boy bands left in hell. (Zoom in for extra juicy detail!)

Still in the pipeline. Bit more stuff I need to figure out but I'm on the home stretch for sure.

It's like I've said all along - the Turing test will be passed by a chatbot that's no more sentient than a bottle of laxative.

Turing test should be treated as a gauge of human stupidity, not machine intelligence.

Cheers guys! The plan is pretty straightforward, Bobby - improve. Photorealism has so many aspects - anatomy has to be spot on, texturing has to be spot on, rendering has to be spot on. There's always room for improvement. Opportunity to impress myself. It's amazing how hard that is. I'm a real nitpicky fucker when it comes to my own work.

Is a mixture of Substance Painter which Santa Clause gave me and Blender which I've been using for ages but only just started exploring a bit deeper

Jesus had some pretty explicit anti-divorce shit I am not here for.

If memory serves (and I could well be wrong), the rationale behind the anti-divorce stuff is because of the societal realities of that time, place, and culture, where by and large men would initiate divorce and the divorced women would end up destitute and homeless. It seems fucked up from our perspective but put in context, it was more a way to prevent women from getting fucked over by dudes who wanted to trade in for something newer.

couldn't he have just said "don't be assholes to divorced women" ?

Probably did. There's been a lot of editing and rewriting since he gave his fictional sermons.
