Let's stop using the term, "ai art," and start saying, "ai content."

They want us to call our work, "content," and they want us to call their junk, "art." No.

Property hunting!
And then this wonderful trip, I am curious about the Pueblo village. When my ex first mentioned the Pueblo and growing up there I was so intrigued!

A friend who was dealing with an unpromising future where he knew he would need to be taken care of in the not so distant future, once told me that his biggest fear would be when the moment came when the last of his independence would melt away and that he would become a burden to others.

I didn't know how to console him. So I just sat with him and listened.

It amazes me how much, as a culture, that we internalize our own care, and the care of others, as a "burden".

What is wrong with us?

pascaline,
@pascaline@mastodon.nl avatar

@Mrfunkedude Oh, yes. I have been feeling this for quite a while now. Becoming a burden, not being able to do what I like, and to hear others decide 'what i would want' which would clearly NOT be what I would want. I dread that, it is a scary thought that often comes to haunt me.

En ondertussen roepen er velen dat het NL water van zo'n goede kwaliteit is. Elke keer zucht ik dan 🙁

@ErikJonker
Nou, dat gaat ook achteruit door de problemen om steeds meer rotzooi eruit te filteren. Ook een drama aan het worden, helaas.
Ik zei ooit tegen iemand dat ons drinkwater zo lekker is. Hij, een fobisch aangelegde Arizonian die water met bleekmiddel gewend was, durfde niet uit de kraan te drinken. Maar toen hij het uiteindelijk dronk vond hij het inderdaad erg lekker. Nou ja, vergeleken met hun water is veel ander water lekker 😀
Soms proef ik iets sterk chemisch in het drinkwater.

I got a Huawei because of its superior camera. At least, that's how it was marketed, evaluated and sold.
It's camera sucks bigtime.
The best smartphone cameras were in my, gulp, Lumias. Yeah, those Microsoft ones 🙄😬
Leica lens, the works. The best. Not the iPhone, Samsung, HTC, or the doomed Huawei. Sigh...

Most bad phone photos are bad because of the way they are processed, which is usually beyond the user's control. Weird edges, clumps of pixels, crazy distortions in shaded areas: all bad. It seems they have gotten worse, trying to 'help' by embellishing while smoothing out et cetera. I almost cried after inspecting the first Huawei picture.

Yes! I absolutely agree. Make science accessible and understandable for the general public as well. This creates a bridge between two worlds, we need this to combat nonsense and conspiracies ❤

It's all such fun to see and read, plus there is Latin to be learned. I love languages and it's so nice to recognise words from those I speak, or indeed to try and find their meaning and/or common roots. Your posts are also great fun for that, thank you ❤️

Mom's recent blood tests weren't enough for liver specialist doctor to diagnose today. Her last ultrasound, combined with recent blood test results indicated some liver damage & autoimmune issues. Specialist has sent requisitions for another ultrasound & for a day biopsy at Jubilee to try to figure out cause of Mom's liver issues. She's never smoked & has maybe drank a total of 10 alcoholic drinks maximum, her entire life. Once liver issues are diagnosed, we can look at treatment options.

In 2004, scientists discovered that 43 foods, mostly vegetables, showed a decrease in nutrients between mid and late 20th century.
Research found calcium in green beans dropped from 65 to 37mg. Vitamin A levels fell by almost half in asparagus. Broccoli stalks had less iron.

Just because it's fun, here are Konijn, Muis Roderick van Kattenburg tot Steegh, and Diederik Welpje Pastafari.
Diederik is the most eh, mobile one. Tricky tricky, so his portrait is somewhat moving, correct?

My cat Konijn sitting on my right, blocking the use of the Wacom tablet, of course, but cute. Sitting on the white sofa and hopefully staring at me.

🤣 🤣 🤣 No, I don't watch the Oscars. However, I saw an article on the BBC about red carpet "fashion" so I thought I'd scroll through and see what people were wearing, and what the photography looked like. I was pretty surprised that most of the clothes they were wearing were reasonable. Some even looked pretty good. But then I came across this mess worn by Ariana Grande. 🤣 🤣 🤣 Addendum: It kind of makes her look like a termite queen.

I looked up the dress because I was curious about its look from the front. It looks nice, very puffy with the small silhouette in it 😊

pascaline,
@pascaline@mastodon.nl avatar

@elaterite
😂
Well, it's all about making impressions. I think the thing looks, in a way, cosy, cocoonish. Not practical at all and I would only wear it in situations like these. It looks a bit like puffed up sheets, too, but it's fun, I think.
Bathroom and the rest: not doable in this dress, but running and so on: maybe the puffiness is detachable? No idea. But the 'body' of the dress itself looks nice although a bit too narrow, it would make me feel claustrophobic. But it's fun 😊

@Edelruth

@elaterite
😀
I think she looks fine 😂
Not my kind of dress but oh well 😊 Although I think it would be fun to walk around in it, but only if I could take my usual tall striding steps because small midievel steps are not my thing.
