emptyother,

Yeah, sex scene and sex jokes was a bit surprising, compared to how tame Bethesda games are on stuff like that. Well, at least the unmodded ones.

But didn’t scare me away after first episode either. Looks promising.

  • You arent allowed to bring any food home. In fact the server stays by your table, uncomfortable close, and watches you to make sure none of the food you’ve already paid for is “stolen”.
  • The restaurant reserves the right to ban anyone not following rules. They do not need to tell you which rule you broke. Also the rules are secret. They frequently brag to media about how many “rule-breakers” they’ve banned.
emptyother,

You’ve never encountered the dark pattern choice in modern software where you want to say “No” but theres no such option? And the software keeps asking you occasionally? Windows got a lot of them. Lately they’ve been trying to get me to move my documents folder to onedrive, and they change the wording and button position every time they ask. Neither choice is “No”. Phone social apps often have “Invite friends” or “Import contacts”, and “Maybe later” instead of “No”. Cookie consent rarely has a straight “No” button either even though they should.

emptyother,

So is the Buffet Pass worth getting? I heard the Dead Meat meal is rather dry without it, but it nearly doubles the price of the meal.

emptyother,

How could series back then afford to run more than two seasons? Like every tv channel I’ve ever had access to only bought the two first seasons then re-ran them over and over and over again, in random order. I was never able to finish a series until internet became popular.

Court Bans Use of 'AI-Enhanced' Video Evidence Because That's Not How AI Works (gizmodo.com)

A judge in Washington state has blocked video evidence that’s been “AI-enhanced” from being submitted in a triple murder trial. And that’s a good thing, given the fact that too many people seem to think applying an AI filter can give them access to secret visual data.

emptyother,

How long until we got upscalers of various sorts built into tech that shouldn’t have it? For bandwidth reduction, for storage compression, or cost savings. Can we trust what we capture with a digital camera, when companies replace a low quality image of the moon with a professionally taken picture, at capture time? Can sport replays be trusted when the ball is upscaled inside the judges’ screens? Cheap security cams with “enhanced night vision” might get somebody jailed.

I love the AI tech. But its future worries me.

emptyother,

They can. But theres a reasonable level of trust that a security feed has been kept secure and not tampered with by the owner if he doesnt have a motive. But what if not even the owner know that somewhere in their tech chain, maybe the camera, maybe the screen, maybe the storage device, maybe all 3, the image was “improved”. No evidence of tampering. We’ll have the police blaming Count Rugen for a bank robbery he didnt do, but the camera clearly shows a six fingered man!

emptyother,

That it is always around. Just hanging there in the sky. That we’ve spent so many nights together. But I guess it is in a way a long-distance relationship. Also its just a pale reflection of the sun. A rocky relationship, in many ways.

emptyother,

Would be nice if every game publisher was required to contribute a version of their game, that can be played without an external network or license, to the country’s main library. For cultural safe-keeping. I know at least one country does that for books.

emptyother,

Cortana worked damn well for a while. Feature rich, able to understand me better than googles assistant. And despite this they found no way to earn money on it and just gave up. Not by just disconnecting her, but by slowly stripping her of every useful feature.

I don’t trust copilot to stay around. They gonna try a few half hearted attempts at capitalize it, then just give up. Like they did with Cortana.

emptyother,

Earth has been iceless before of course, and I’ve heard people claim its not a problem for it to happen again.

But if only this heating had occured slowly over a period of ~45 million years, nobody would have panicked. We’d adapt. Fauna and flora would adapt. We’d not even notice the ice caps melting.

emptyother,

In a normal world, someone in power who immediately starts blaming without any proof or cause or connected reason, should have been marked as crazy and shamed out of any place of power. I don’t care if its left or right or between. They should be as relevant as those who blame aliens for building the pyramids. They have no place deciding the fate of others.

That a lot of US are so ready to fight immigrants that they dont mind their politicians jumping blindly to conclusions and seeing enemies everywhere… Its scary. Even on this side of the Atlantic.

emptyother,

Humans become dangerously inventive and resourceful in guerilla warfare. Its fun (and sometimes horrifying) reading old booby trap recipes that was shared around by Milorg here in Norway during WW2.

emptyother,

Im probably wrong, it isn’t easy to judge properly with so few pixels, but it looks like each floor on the enterprise is half the height of a cargo crate. That can’t be right?

Yes, the New 'Pirates of the Caribbean' Movie Will Be a Reboot, Confirms Original Producer (collider.com)

Speaking with ComicBook.com, producer Jerry Bruckheimer stressed that the franchise was still on track to return but that they would now be bringing in a new cast to tell new stories, adding that he was unsure if Pirates or another legacy series, Top Gun, would return to screens first....

emptyother,

I really wish it was more popular to just continue film and tvseries with a new crew. New actors, new story or same-ish story, but acknowledgement that the old stuff happened somewhere in the same fictional universe. Hell, I would even prefer existing roles recast over a reboot. Theater pieces has no problem recasting anyone into any role.

emptyother,

“Who teachers felt had problems…” Oh. Teachers. Those people who comes in AFTER things has gone far past reasonable limits, and assigns blame based on whoever the majority of the class points out as the instigator. 😒

emptyother,

Agree. DOS’ elemental surface effects was cool, but having to deal with it all the time got old. Even more so with necrofire. I’m really hoping DOS3 learn something from BG3’s more conservative usage of surface effects.

emptyother,

And only once. You can’t buy another one to do it again. Your only option is to buy ingame.

That being said, the publisher is well-known for doing useless and overpriced microtransactions. Why everyone acts so surprised and nobody cared before release is beyond me.

emptyother,

Is that from Red Dead Redemption 2?

Just kidding. Beautiful photo though.

emptyother,

Of course we should! We replaced our doctors with hourly rentable books back when that tech became popular. /s

emptyother,

I’ve always thought it was the back. But logically then we would be looking down at him. Since we cant see the city, only the sky, we have to be looking up at him.

Also… Does Batman wear high heels here?! He’s a ninja, they should know better than anyone that flat, thin soles are quieter.

emptyother,

The siluette would be the same no matter if its the left or right arm, assuming this is a faraway shot and has barely any perspective. Think of Wile E. Coyote when he leaves a hole in something. It wouldnt matter if he hit the wall with his front first or back first, it would still be the same contour.

emptyother, (edited )

I don’t do well with lying. Because of childhood trauma. I am an open book. Even online. A boring open book though.

But I am sometimes a bit confused. Might say stuff I later realize I should have done a second thinking about. But I don’t call it misrepresentation when I believed it myself, even if I later realize my mistake.
