Elon Musk says artificial intelligence is 'potentially more dangerous than nukes'
Must have watched same movie I did: Fortin Project - WarLord
This morning I attended a funeral mass for a long time friend, the man who introduced me to my War Lady 35 years ago. His health issues finally became insurmountable. After the funeral I decided: I want to hire a photographer for my own funeral. There were many images at Pat's funeral beautiful little life affirming moments.
I wish I could have photographed. Plus as an end note to my online life, my funeral posted to my Flickr account old be a "perfect" The End #notrealyasmacabreasitsounds - WarLord
That actually sounds pretty cool, especially as a celebration of all of the lives touched. - Jennifer Dittrich

Today has turned into Operation Mouse Hunt. :(
Yikes! :-/ - vicster: full-bodied
do you need to borrow the cats? - Sir Shuping is just sir
Oh ewww. I have had to hunt the last two mice in this house. With five cats, it is an abomination. My barn kitten adopted finally DID get the garage mouse. - Janet
We're taking a break from cleaning for a bit, but I made the mistake of opening one last drawer before I sat down. It had K-cups and Splenda packets in it... yeah. He apparently had a field day in there. :( - LB's 10:19pm Name Change from Android
That's a good thing. With all the added body mass he won't be able to run as fast. :) - Stephan Planken from iPhone
But he's caffeinated! - LB's 10:19pm Name Change from Android
He didn't bother the cups of Sleepytime Tea, but he enjoyed the cocoa and cappuccino. However, everything that was in that drawer has been tossed. - LB's 10:19pm Name Change from Android
I bagged one last weekend in the garage with a pre-flavored old-fashioned 50c mousetrap. Snap, wriggle pop, mouse crispy! - Zefster from iPod
Might have to try the pre-flavored ones. They aren't going for the bait yet. - LB's 10:19pm Name Change
He's licked the peanut butter off one of them. :( - LB's 10:19pm Name Change from Android

Absurd premises in movies that I've been able to accept without question:
Giant robots that transform into vehicles or household appliances. - Victor Ganata
The powers of Norse deities are really just superadvanced technology. - Victor Ganata
The only real way to combat 300 foot monsters is with 300 foot anthropomorphic robots. - Victor Ganata
The only surviving remnants of humanity live on a 1,000-car train powered by a perpetual motion engine that must continue running forever, otherwise everyone freezes to death. - Victor Ganata
Killing a specific subtype of alien species gives you the power to rewind time over and over again and this power gets rescinded if you have a blood transfusion. - Victor Ganata
that you can run along on top of a train and stand like its not moving at all and never lose your hat. - MAMA VAL#GOSCARLETTGO
A radiologist would be selected to carry out a complicated EVA involving the installation of experimental equipment. - Victor Ganata
A nuclear war is survivable by any quantity of humans. No, wait, I didn't believe that even at the time. - Big Joe Silence
That a boy can meet a girl and they can fall in love, then overcome an obstacle that drives them apart, and subsequently they live happily ever after. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
That somebody as short as Tom Cruise would be allowed to fly a jet airplane for the Navy. - Brian Johns
Brian: there are actually limits on how tall you can be to fly most military jets. The cockpits are quite cramped, so larger stature people (ahem, Rick Rossovich) are not welcome. - Bren
That a guy being held by terrorists could build a big iron suit that could fly and that whole nuke for a heart...Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts? Not so much - WarLord
Midi-chlorians. ;P - Anika
I don't remember for sure, but I'd like to hope I greeted midichlorians with a WTF expression right in the theater. I know I did for the Matrix's "they're using humans as power" line. - Andrew C (✔)

Confession: Sometimes when I'm scrolling through photos of my glass work I come across things I cant believe that I made.
Interesting comment. I find the same kinda thing when I scroll through my pictures: "When did I take THAT?" - WarLord
You're very talented, Shannon! - Jenny H. from Android
To be 100% honest, every photo of your glass makes me say "HOW THE %¥#£? DOES SHE DO THAT??!?!" - Johnny from iPhone
Lol! I resemble these last 2 comments! - Yvonne from FFHound!
I visited the gym at Courage Center St Croix and did a soft round of exercise and weight machines including Nu-Step. I even played a bit with ankle weights and smallish dumbbells. I'm convinced that exercise has and will extend my time upright by strengthening complementary muscles that surround my compromised muscles. ‪#‎YMMV‬ Even if that is...

The right’s anti-healthcare jubilee! Why they can’t quit the Obamacare obsession via @Salon #hatefulrightwing
"...At least four Supreme Court justices are part-time or full-time inhabitants of the alternate conservative reality, and they have demonstrated a hostility toward Obamacare and a willingness to bend their own legal reasoning in the service of tearing the law down. It’s still unlikely that Halbig would be upheld by the Supreme Court, but if the conservatives on the court were to pull it off, the decision would throw millions of Americans’ personal lives into disorder and create chaos in 36 states. And the right would be okay with that, so long as Obamacare gets hurt. ..." - WarLord
The right’s anti-healthcare jubilee! Why they can’t quit the Obamacare obsession via @Salon
"...The unseemly side to all this celebrating is the fact that these conservatives are, in effect, throwing a party over a judicial ruling that would strip millions of people of their health coverage. “The next time Republicans are wondering why so many people think their party is cruel and uncaring and will gladly crush the lives of ordinary people if it means gaining some momentary partisan advantage, they might think back to this case,” wrote Paul Waldman in the American Prospect. ..." - WarLord
My Bohemian Great Grandfather arrived in America to escape religious persecution before there was an Ellis Island He traveled to St Louis sponsored by their Bohemian Society thence to Manley, Iowa. My grandfather was a year and a half old when they left Bremer Harbor and yet born on the train trip between New York City and St Louis #anchorbaby
I've been here all my life but all ALL of my antecedents are from umm "elsewhere". I want to sincerely thank Bill O'Reilly, Ann Coulter, and the rest of Right Wing assholes for not inventing time travel to go back and "fortify" that particular border #wherewouldIbe - WarLord

Right-wing obstruction could have been fought: An ineffective and gutless presidency’s legacy is failure via @Salon
"... In point of fact, there were plenty of things Obama’s Democrats could have done that might have put the right out of business once and for all—for example, by responding more aggressively to the Great Recession or by pounding relentlessly on the theme of middle-class economic distress. Acknowledging this possibility, however, has always been difficult for consensus-minded Democrats, and I suspect that in the official recounting of the Obama era, this troublesome possibility will disappear entirely ..." - WarLord
"... My own preference would be to let that disillusionment run, to let it guide the entire design of the Obama museum. Disillusionment is, after all, a far more representative emotion of our times than Beltway satisfaction over the stability of some imaginary “center.” So why not memorialize it? My suggestion to the designers of the complex: That the Obama Presidential Library be designed as a kind of cenotaph, a mausoleum of hope ..." - WarLord
Or perhaps simply an inscription The Best Republican President Wall Street could possibly have had - WarLord
You never saw President Obama at a rally for job dignity at MacDonald's or Walmart Never speaking for $15 dollars an hour wages for the disposable class of workers. You saw him meet and greet Waltons and the great Satan of worker exploitation Jeff Bezos but never a word for the McDonald and Walmart unionizing campaigns. He wasn't a progressive or a liberal, he was a product of Harvard and writing a book to pay his student loans..... - WarLord
I fell at the hospital coming out of the infusion center after my Mg IV. Classic "no warning" IBM drop - One minute I'm next I'm down! Luckily I was on carpet, nothing damaged but my dignity. First drop in a while. I tend to think that's worse, just when you think you can depend on your legs, they betray you again Oh well I AM still walking...
Glad you are okay! - Janet from FFHound!
Dignity becomes a very relative concept in time - Todd Hoff

Monday afternoon I'm at Endoscopy Center to have my Gastro Doc scope me. We are at a crossroads. After multiple bowel resections the connection of my small and large bowel is suspect. Is there inflammation, maybe microbe spill from large bowel maybe scar tissue is restricting flow... Lots of questions Answers? Not so much. I don't clean out well...
I don't clean out well So today is liquids only and enemas in the morning Hopefully he can see enough to make us some better choices going forward.

If brainwaves can reliably control mechanisms why have we not seen more than demos in past 40 years?
Because Silicon Valley is invested in mechanical pointers anf a breakthrough making much of current software (apps) obsolete is not wanted . - WarLord
In forty years, we've managed to take brainwave-controlled mechanisms from a simple on-off state change which required the mental control of a master yogi to operate and turn them into slightly more complex control systems which require the mental control of a reasonably-skilled yogi. But really, I don't think thought control will replace physical unless or until we crack the brain's OS :-) - Slippy: Rebooting
The American Century is over: How our country went down in a blaze of shame via @Salon
"... Among the biggest beneficiaries of the current American economic system are not entrepreneurs or innovators, but parasites who owe their wealth to rigged markets or government subsidies. The “parasite load” in the U.S. economy includes many in the financial industry who expect that the federal government will socialize their losses but let them keep their profits — profits taxed at low rates, or hidden from taxation altogether. Other parasitic special interests include the predatory monopolies of America’s health care sector — the pharma industry, which charges Americans far more for the same drugs than it is allowed to charge in Canada, Europe or Asia; physicians, who tend to be paid much more in the U.S. than in other countries with comparable health outcomes; and price-gouging hospitals. Much of America’s higher education industry, too, is riddled with parasites, including bankers who profit from lifelong debt serfdom by Americans who take out student loans and empire-building university administrators who fund personal entourages with public and private money. ..." - WarLord
"... Apart from a revival of oil and gas production in the U.S., the economy’s main area of comparative strength has been technological innovation. The rise of self-driving vehicles and the “internet of things” are promising developments. But these mostly involve the extension of existing information technology to new sectors. The American tech economy has been living on intellectual... more... - WarLord
",,, The U.S. is facing a triple crisis — a crisis of foreign policy, a crisis of economics and a crisis of democracy. The American republic has renewed and rebuilt itself during even greater crises in the past, and can do so again. But the first step is to drop the happy talk and chest-thumping and flag-waving and be honest with ourselves about the severity of the problems confronting us. ,,," - WarLord
