Or Kill Me / Re: Thinking Discordian for brain hygiene

I always found getting outrageously drunk on fine scotch and trolling the shit out of someone, IRL or online, works for me.

On the topic of doing something difficult and fun, I've been looking at fencing classes.  There is a fencing studio literally five minutes walk away, with 4 weekly sessions.  I'll admit my preferences in swordplay run more towards the ARMA "bash them in the face with your pommel, kick them in the balls and stab them while they're crying on the ground" method, but a more...refined approach could be interesting.

If you're going to carry a sword, it's prolly best to have the whole Assassin's Creed repertoire down

..get better!

Do more difficult shit for more fun

Get more better

Marmite doesn't do the tingle but it's a fucking horrific "normal" taste that I haven't experienced anywhere apart from those Victory V losenges. Soy sauce I love. Cook with it all the time.

The thing that weirds me out a bit is I've never heard a single other account of this tingle effect. Maybe it's psychosomatic  :eek:

Fuck if I know. It's not just chinese. Happens from time to time with other things, there's a brand of protein bar f'rinstance they used to sell down the gym, but it happens so often with chinese that I just don't bother anymore. Exception being one upmarket restaurant in Stirling where the food is so good it makes the takeaway shit look like some kind of obscene parody.

Most chinese food does a weird thing in my mouth. Not an allergic reaction, per se but a kind of really fucked up odd thing that's more like licking a battery than a taste. Maybe it's just coincidence and chinese food regularly contains some other ingredient or additive that's doing this or maybe it's some additive in the MSG but I hate it.

It's refreshing to know this but, at the same time it merely invalidates the "...but" clause. For me the "...but" clause was never valid anyway. I'm a kind of nazi when it comes to free speech and causing offence. Especially when causing offence to people who deserve more than anyone to be offended. If a belief system is so threadbare and weak that it must be protected by violence from any criticism or satire then it deserves to be criticized and satirized to death.

Shit ideas should not be respected and venerated. If they are, we end up in the situation we're in. Mindless drones blowing the piss out of journalists because their choice of irrational fiction says so.

I've been saying for years, the people making the decisions have no idea how the technology works that they're making decisions about. I can see this because IT is my field but now I'm wondering if this disparity is across the board. Would certainly explain a hell of a lot  :horrormirth:

Being a douchebag and getting banned. If there's anything more meaningful in life then I honestly don't have time for it

We're all totally fucked if humanity stays in charge. Maybe AI is actually our only hope :lulz:

I once saw a cosmo article that suggested wrapping a shoe string around a mans penis and twisting it back and forth like a boy scout trying to start a fire.

Oh hey so they can be right sometimes.

Fuck you, I only thought of one thing to post today and you fuckin stole it from me  :argh!:

Yeah, cognitively speaking, meatware is pretty impressive but only when considering the fact that the software wrote itself, by accident. This is why I'm reasonably confident that AI will not turn out to be the anthropomorphic comedy show that many people seem to think it will. Why go to all the trouble of making it rubbish, when it's much easier to make it practically flawless? That is without the irrational emotional circuitry and various other biases and glitches. Problem is many people think Homo Sapiens 1.0 is some sort of holy pinnacle of creation. If that were the case then we'd never have had to bolt on cognitive upgrades like satnav, databases and written language.

Posting here to remind myself to come back to this in a couple of days, when I have time.

Something I'm looking forward to is the inevitable point where prosthetic limbs outperform their bio equivalents by a factor of two. At that point I'll be looking for excuses to get replacements. So I can go out and twice as fuck shit up. If it turns out there isn't a robot revolution, I'll be happy to start one.
