The only thing the article leaves out and I'm wondering if it was a factor is if vodka was involved in any of this. I'm for thinking it probably was.

Seriously, do you really want your AI to code for you? Seems like an all around stupid Idea.

Seeing how badly flawed most human code is, why now. If it can become the translator to create programs just from described input from the end user that'd be amazing. I have no more reason to either trust or distrust an AI coding a program than I do a person. Imagine being able to create a video game without programming skills simply by dictating it. Amazing!

I think it depends upon where you find your zen, so to speak. I've lived an extremely urban lifestyle after living a very rural lifestyle and hated it. Living on-top of each other like rats, no personal green space, and constant noise made me ditch a well-paying job and a downtown Seattle apartment to go back to rural living.

Today, I hopped on my mower, mowed my acre and a half lawn, got all my vegetables planted as we have an early spring, played with my dog, and chatted with my neighbor as he had come down the road when I was out getting the mail. He lives just a hair over a mile down the road from me. Outside of him, I didn't see another living human being today. It was quiet outside of the normal noises of nature and the breeze.

That's living the dream as far as I'm concerned. I loved the city life as a young man. Good times were had. That's all over now, baby blue. I'm trying to get to exactly what you just mentioned, space, peace, quiet. I take a quiet country drive once a week and I find it's the only time now where it just really relaxes the hell out of me.

you'll want to bring in a lot more fermented foods that can replenish the probiotics in the gut, since fasting will deplete the overall biotic environment as it flushes and renews cells..

gut flora is mostly provided externally - in essence its just a symbiosis with our environment

Yeah, I know, that's next on the list as they say 70% of your immune system is the gut. Gonna' pick up some books on lacto-fermenting foods too and get right into it. I've always loved those kinds of foods anyway so it's a win for me. Plus this is the year I tackle the backyard, so I'll be putting in 3, maybe 4, raised beds for veg, and possibly a small - 8'x12' greenhouse too. So I'll need a way to store all that veg anyway. Also been reading up on root cellaring too, which I find interesting. It's amazing how long food can last when stored in the right conditions without refrigeration. That's something we've forgotten as a culture we need to start re-learning.

As for the fasting, there are upsides as well, like lowering your insulin and IGF-1 factors which is super important for everything. I'll likely be doing it to shed the 50lbs I need to than just go down to once per week as maintenance, which is what most people do with intermittent fasting. Main thing is trying to end all the issues related to inflammation that come with age, so I've been reading a ton on the subject and it's been most edifying. These sorts of things are something we should all be doing as a lifestyle from cradle to grave. I recall a few years back Harvard Medical school said something to that effect like 90-95% of all health problems, diseases, etc. could be eliminated simply by proper diet and exercise so long as it's a lifelong commitment. Still, better late than never.

Have you considered going vegetarian as a trial? I suggest giving a go for about a month. You might be surprised at the positive results at the positive results in digestion, energy levels, etc. It's easy to substitute that meat texture with beans, mushrooms, and other veggies.

Personally, I've been vegetarian (no meat or dairy products) for about 6 months and have lost some weight, focus better, and find that my energy levels are consistently higher, probably because I'm not digesting meat.

Worth a try?


I'm going that way. Well mostly plant based at any rate. Going to be getting on board with a caloric restriction diet/intermittent fasting - i.e. The Fast Diet.

I already have a lot of healthy cookbooks that are mostly vegetarian based but I just added 2 more to the library and I can't recommend these enough. The recipes are vegetarian, simple, healthy and delicious.

No, what this article clearly illustrates that only the criminally insane are fans of Nvidia.

Seriously though, 9.5 years? That's fucking it? This is why the world not only needs a global death penalty, but we also need summary executions in open and shut cases like these. Just take them out of the courtroom around back of the courthouse to a firing squad and be done with it.

It has to be a stiff enough fine to prevent anyone from filing a illegitimate claim. Even for actual rights-holders it should stop and give them pause. Most of those claims go up against Fair Use. A lot of people/corps are simply trying to shut down anything whatsoever related to their ownership if they're not getting paid and that's not right. So yeah, I'd say 5K for the first false claim is a good start and it should double automatically for each subsequent false claim. That'd put and end to this nonsense PDQ.

And then you charge $329 for your cheapest processor?

Yeah, and their Intel counterpart CPUs cost double what these do, so it's a huge bargain.

Then a few weeks later the house literally next door was listed, I went to see it on the first day of the listing. The next day I did the paper work to make an offer, only to find out a few hours later there was another offer. At my realtor's suggestion I upped my offer by $1,500. It was a tense six hours before my agent called and said they had accepted my offer. And all this is in a town of a little over 100k.

Just recently in Ontario they changed the law on that. Now all offers not only have to be in writing but they have to be presented to all competing bidders. The biggest complaint here over the last decade has been that a lot of scumbag realtors have just been inflating prices by making claims of higher offers without ever offering any actual proof that was the case. It's a welcome change. Now if we can just get the damn foreigners locked out of buying real estate here prices should start returning to some semblance of normalcy.

How so? I'm dual and prefer the Canadian store because I generally save a couple bucks int he conversion.

Look, a dollar is worth a dollar to a citizen of a country regardless of exchange rates with other countries. Minimum wage, as an example, is the same in the US and Canada - on average - yet, someone working for that same rate in Canada has to work an additional 3 hours for the exact same virtual product. It didn't cost them anymore to make it or ship it, yet you're supposed to put in 30% more work as your American counterpart. Why?

If it wasn't for the fact that to try and combat piracy they drastically lower the prices on those same products in high piracy countries like China, Russia, et al. So even though their dollar is worth less they still get to pay even less - generally 50% on average - than their American counterparts on a dollar to dollar basis. So their dollar, like ours, is worth less, yet they get a discount and we have to pay more. Yeah, that's real fair. This is the same for the poor ol' Aussies.

I suppose the message they're ultimately sending is we - Can/Aus - should really be pirating the shit of software because only at that point will we get the same breaks as China, Russia, Brazil, etc. in order to curtail said piracy. And they wonder why key reseller sites thrive, particularly with countries like ours who continually get F'd in the A on this sans lube.

Now that it's proven and past the point where layman can fuck its reputation easily, they feel safe to release it to everyone.

Well that's your theory, Seph. It's wrong of course, but nice try.

Will people be living longer lives as ghouls because of all the radiation from WWIII? Because that's what I see happening by 2030 at our current pace of global Idiocracy.

I've always been of two minds about renos before selling a home. Seeing as I have the skills to reno most everything myself I've always preferred something cheaper and dumpier that I just gut and rebuild myself - for the most part. The major problem with renos and flipped homes - beyond shoddy workmanship - is personal taste. So you may end up spending a lot of money on cosmetics that you like but others don't. Better off to just clean things up, a bit of patching and paint here and there and let the new owners reno it to suit their tastes.

The other major problem is that most renos are cosmetic and don't address the real problems in the home. When I rebuilt the first half of the basement here 2 years ago the electrical work was really bad, like dangerously so. Not to mention all the work was subpar. There was a lot of mold - which I knew was there from before just by the smell - on the floors and exterior walls because it was all done incorrectly. I spent a couple of days just cleaning everything floor to ceiling with Concrobium Mold Control. Now everything has a proper vapour barrier and correct insulation, I installed Dricore subflooring for the same reason. And all the electrical is nice, new, clean, and actually surpasses code. It's all made a huge difference in look, feel, and energy savings. I sleep better at night knowing what's going on in a house behind the walls/floors/ceilings is done right.
