Back to normal happy talk!!

Always wanted to meet a cybord, looks like we all might get the chance! Not only is this a good thing for how future people might be able to work and the progress of AI in general, but its cool!

Elon is really one of the few people running full speed into the ongoing transition that was begun, as best I can tell, about a decade about. Propelled in part by the resource scarcity meme involving peak oil like thinking, but still moving along faster than doomers can come up with new ways to destroy the world (which is to say, none, because they keep recycling old ones).


Musk on a mission to link brains with computers Musk on a mission to link brains with computers

Tesla founder and Chief Executive Elon Musk said his latest company Neuralink is working to link the human brain with a machine interface by creating micron-sized devices.

Neuralink is aiming to bring to the market a product that helps with certain severe brain injuries due to stroke, cancer lesions, and so on, in about four years, Musk said in an interview with website Wait But Why.

As the originator of the thread, I am banning all future NRA bs from the thread. Thanks. I'm so glad you think you have that 'right.' But it really is not in the bill of rights in quite the way you think.

Anyway, thanks, ol, for those worthy posts.

Adam, it just gets us into a monkey-chasing-his-tail type of dialogue that I don't think is particularly 'happy' or useful here.

You've had a chance to express your wonderful gun-joy.

Now can we please move on to other areas of your experience that give you joy?? :-D :-D

How, for example, are everyone's gardens getting on?

Full disclosure - That is 24 potato plants and 200 onions. If they all survive and are carefully stored, that will feed us both for a year.

Also - everything you see here was planted directly from seed. No seedlings from Lowes...except seed potatoes and onion sets.

That is truly beautiful, baha. Thanks for the text and pics!

And for more happy talk:

British power generation achieves first ever coal-free day

National Grid hails milestone as other sources like gas, nuclear, wind and solar allow UK to keep lights on with all coal-fired powerplants offline

Friday was Britain’s first ever working day without coal power since the Industrial Revolution, according to the National Grid.

The control room tweeted the milestone on Friday. It is the first continuous 24-hour coal-free period for Britain since use of the fossil fuel began. West Burton 1 power station, the only coal-fired plant that had been up and running, went offline on Thursday....

Your garden looks great, baha. I don't mind admitting I'm a little envious at this point!
