> Prepare for some people actually getting angry about it once you te that the paintings they liked most are computer generated (from pictures but still).

My girlfriend is a fine arts major and isn't speaking to me right now.


> In the end we can still hold responsible the people that listened to that advice as it's their responsibility to check if the advice from their AI advisers is real.

This has so much potential for a Phillip-K-Dick-ian rabbit hole of paranoia and insanity that it made me chuckle. I think you might be hand-waving away a lot of complexity here. :)


What plugins? I use the same setup but with vanilla vim.

Plugin 'godlygeek/tabular'

Plugin 'plasticboy/vim-markdown'

Plugin 'suan/vim-instant-markdown'

Plugin 'junegunn/goyo.vim'

Plugin 'amix/vim-zenroom2'

Plugin 'junegunn/limelight.vim'

I also have quite a bit of prose-related stuff that I tend to conflate, but these are the main ones.


People born after the 1970s may not be aware of the Teton Dam collapse, but it was another case of total disregard for many, many expert warnings of disaster in the rush to build something big and impressive. Here's kind of a cheesy documentary clip describing the incident [1], but the book Cadillac Desert [2] goes into some detail if you're curious.

FWIW, there is a four-hour PBS style documentary based on the book. This book is the most prescient thing about the biggest issue ( multiply prescience by the size of the issue and it sorts to the top ) I probably will ever read.

I'd just like to give a heads up to anyone that needs to get any work done today, don't visit the educational gifs subreddit.

Very interesting! Can you tell us a little bit more about how you wrote the transpiler?

Off topic, but I recently discovered the "anti-cheese" edits to the prequels, and they are a huge improvement to the originals, in my opinion. Among other changes, it removes almost all of the Jar Jar Binks scenes, and replaces all of the racially stereotyped alien accents with alien "languages" and subtitles. Of course, the edits make the movie a bit disjointed, but it was much easier to stomach than the originals. You can find them on youtube if you search "anti-cheese".

I watched the films in Machete Order[1] with my girlfriend in advance of the premiere of The Force Awakens last week. She hadn't seen any Star Wars movie in 15 years, and the Machete Order worked out quite well. I'd considered watching one of the two hour long "Phantom Edits," but it seemed too difficult to find one of good quality.

Do you have a recommendation on a specific edit?

You might be surprised at how many Americans think Ireland is part of the UK. Source: I live in a hostel.

Edit: for extra fun, ask them what country Amsterdam is in.

I would not be so harsh, my initial comment is a bit misleading. And most Europeans do not know the difference between Washington and Washington D.C. :-)

Is that so?
