¡Qué horrible es "Google Translate"?

Las mentes curiosas quieren saber!

so, how goes Discussionist, Señor Skinner ?

If too nosy, my bad. Have a lovely summer with your wife and kids !


So you're calling me a liar and two other people liars ?

Nice to know. Both the pharmacy manager and a Publix pharmacist told me this. Why would they say this ?

I did not ask the pharmacy manager either. He said it out of the clear blue sky.

I asked the pharmacist ON A SEPARATE TRIP, and he said it was true, without hesitating. Yes, the pharmacy manager (his boss) was nowhere in sight.

Ask my doctor ? WTH.

The Nazis talked in WW2 without torture

I think we all know this, right ? No need for torture if one is skilled. Torture is morally wrong !

kick because I think this is very important, imho

The pharmacist says, and I have no proof of this, that Walmart plans the same thing.

Here’s Why Scientists Think You Should be Worried about Artificial Intelligence

Note: I am NOT agreeing with or endorsing this article, simply posting for critiques.


Over the last few months, you may have read the coverage surrounding an article, co-authored by Stephen Hawking, discussing the risks associated with artificial intelligence. The article suggested that AI may pose a serious risk to the human race. Hawking isn’t alone there — Elon Musk and Peter Thiel are both intellectual public figures who have expressed similar concerns (Thiel has invested more than $1.3 million researching the issue and possible solutions).

The coverage of Hawking’s article and Musk’s comments have been, not to put too fine a point on it, a little bit jovial. The tone has been very much ‘look at this weird thing all these geeks are worried about.’ Little consideration is given to the idea that if some of the smartest people on Earth are warning you that something could be very dangerous, it just might be worth listening.

This is understandable — artificial intelligence taking over the world certainly sounds very strange and implausible, maybe because of the enormous attention already given to this idea by science fiction writers. So, what has all these nominally sane, rational people so spooked?

Absolute best movie of all time, in your opinion, of course

I need to see Citizen Kane, but I loved this one:

Grand Canyon. It had a very spiritual vibe about it, so that's why I liked it. I won't dare to say it ranks with Citizen Kane, but I liked it.
