Texan civility would never stoop to such levels

speck,

Denying such things in other animals has been part of a long-standing, mainly Western, push for human exceptionalism

speck,

Pretty stoked for this. The superhero genre seems strangely missing in gaming, barring IP related projects connected to DC and Marvel. This came the closest to matching the thrill of being a superhero, when it came out. Character creation was amazing, too

speck,

Were you able to create your own character?

"Permission is Hereby Granted" -- MIT License text becomes viral “sad girl” piano ballad generated by AI (arstechnica.com)

On Wednesday, prompt engineer Riley Goodside tweeted an AI-generated song created with the prompt “sad girl with piano performs the text of the MIT License,” and it began to circulate widely in the AI community online.

Quite the meta statement of mainstream music

I miss people looking like humans.

Everywhere online now, every movie, every home video, has been passed through so many filters that people don’t look human any more. Nobody has any lines in their face, their teeth are florescent white, their eyes are filled in and have no veins. Nobody ever looks tired, or natural. Add to the mix the fact that everyone is...

speck,

Humans haven't been tasty in a long time. And now they're contaminated with micro plastics and forever chemicals?? Forget it. Hard pass

speck,

Don't have anything to add, just appreciation for your post. A true evil playthrough would be interesting. Done well it'd uncomfortable and illuminating. But maybe too threatening for many? Maybe we stick to simplistic versions because they are safe?

Dishonored 2 did something in the right direction, the way choices start to color the world around you.

speck,

Well, we will add some ecology version of thoughts and prayers to it. Some veneer of Never Again

speck,

I'd prefer a flood of similar questions than the flood of circle jerk sycophant memes. At least the repetition of the former helps solidify my knowledge of common distros or whatever

speck, (edited )

Ah, thank you! You helped me understand how that chart works

EDIT: Hey thank you, that worked for the immediate challenge — and now I have a use for the caps lock key

speck, (edited )

I'll give that a shot when I'm back at my laptop, thank you

[EDIT]: That didn't work for me. Wish it did, since it's a quicker combo! The CKEY + en dash * 3 did though

speck,

Thank you that worked, now that I understand how to use the combo. Still wished there was a way to set my own combo. But this works

speck,

Thanks!

speck,

Your responses alternate between writing as if you are a random person who happened across this and then someone who is part of the project. Kinda disingenuous. If you are marketing your own project, be straight about it. If it is against the policies to do that, well then don't do it

speck,

Inasmuch as that sentiment is shared, it's kind of a quietly radical thing to see on a social media site

speck,

We can't be critical across the board?

speck,

What's the difference between mbin and fedia?

speck,

Great clarification, thank you!

speck,

Took a look at it. How do you get image previews to be full sized on mobile?

And what's the story behind this instance? Like, vs kbin or mbin

speck,

For all the times you responded, couldn't you have just posted the link?

speck,

It started to come off as scripted. But who knows. Everyone's cray and imitating cray they've seen on tiktok like AI learning from other AI in a loop to the bottom

speck,

Not sure what you mean, but here are some considerations. See which is important to you and then others can opine?

Taste (subjective. E.g. I find anything that is tetrapak vs refrigerated to have a ubiquitous off taste)

Versatility
(some hold up better in hot liquids than others; or have a necessary thickness for cooking or baking)

Nutritional Profile
(soy is usually naturally higher in protein; oat and rice milk are high carb / glucose load)

Cost

Quality of ingredients, including how processed they are

Inclusion of undesirable ingredients
(e.g. oils, thickeners)

Ecological impact
(Amount of water to produce e.g. almonds vs oats; over harvesting e.g. coconut)

Memories of Aaron Bushnell (crimethinc.com)

On February 25, Aaron Bushnell set himself on fire at the gate of the Israeli embassy in Washington, DC as an act of protest against the ongoing genocide of Palestinians in Gaza. Hostile critics have attempted to shrug off Aaron’s action as the consequence of mental illness. On the contrary, Aaron’s choice was a political...

Thanks! Will watch it

Edit to say I watched it. His friend was incredibly well spoken. And brave in his own right, frankly.
