This can be viewed as pretty fkn dystopian, no?

Imagine a world where your time during sleep is also monetised and expected to be applied to the capitalist machine

I know there's a Buy/Sell place here but don't imagine it gets a whole lot of use (I could be wrong though!) - but here's your opportunity to buy an authentic [Malks] Pixie glass painting*.

We're spending billions to compel poor people to pay for prescriptions.

That's what I think of when someone points all a-titter "Lookie, stupid people are stupid! Teeheehee!"

Show off.

The NZH is worried that people might forget how the poor only have themselves to blame.

You have some of the worst takes around.

This woman is a scumbag - she's been in jail for importing and dealing meth (quite a lucrative business one might add, if you're not a fucking idiot and waste your excessive profits on absolute shit), she owns a police scanner, actively supports her criminal children in their criminal activity, has a partner who supports her criminal involvement, and other associates (one might assume gangs, given the picture being painted), owns or gets possession of weapons and decides to shoot at Police. What part of that should she not take the blame for?

And we're not "compelling poor people to pay for prescriptions". Poor people still get free prescriptions. We're eliminating subsidies for un-poor people to avoid paying a measly $5. Because it all adds up, and free is never free, because the government doesn't have money of its own, it's all taxpayer's money.

Y'know, it's not usually the poor we roll the guillotine out for, right?

It's funny seeing those who were gloating about their indifference to authority during the pandemic, siding with authority against the truly anti-authoritarian. Well, it's more pathetic than funny I suppose.

She broke the golden rule, so she deserves whatever she gets. And if you want to bring up the pandemic, remember the other zinger: "Choices have consequences". Her choices, her consequences.

I don't know why you're defending her. Something about "there exists rich people, therefore the Herald are waging war against the poor and this article is a beat up". Not your finest work.

Didn't preach nothing, not defending anyone. Your anti-authoritarian streak is play-acting. A little make believe to help you through hard times.

Real fake news

AI generated news reporters, reporting "trusted, fact checked" stories. With a combination of both real and AI generated footage. Or a video that's made to look like that's what they're doing. I don't even know. The lady has 5 fingers and they don't look weird, so she /seems/ real.

Do you trust an AI generated person to give you true and correct information? Would an AI lie to you? Is this how you want the future to look?

Videos show Israeli soldiers in Gaza burning food, vandalizing a shop and ransacking private homes

I've seen a lot of footage so far of Israeli atrocities again civilians. It seems like it's starting to making mainstream news.

The momentum against genocide is fairly slow to build, but it is growing.

Israel has a significant Arab population. Your statement makes no sense, and neither do you.

It's so easy to tell those who have learnt history, who knew history before these recent events. And those who have been fed memes on the day.

OK then, simple question to understand your position. Do you believe Israel has the right to exist as its own independent state? If so, where should its borders be?

Liar. You're trying to frame complex circumstances within a simplistic framing. For the sake of genocide.

I'd say "do better Mavis", but you've consistently demonstrated you're at the limit of your abilities.

No, it's a really simple question tbh. The fact that you cannot answer it tells me you would support the erasure of Jews in Israel.

I read a Slashdot article about the passing of Vera Molnar at age 99 - someone you likely have not heard of. I hadn't.

Quote:
Vera Molnar, a Hungarian-born artist who has been called the godmother of generative art for her pioneering digital work, which started with the hulking computers of the 1960s and evolved through the current age of NFTs, died on Dec. 7 in Paris.

Ms. Molnar in fact began to employ the principles of computation in her work years before she gained access to an actual computer. In 1959, she began implementing a concept she called "Machine Imaginaire" -- imaginary machine. This analog approach involved using simple algorithms to guide the placement of lines and shapes for works that she produced by hand, on grid paper. She took her first step into the silicon age in 1968, when she got access to a computer at a university research laboratory in Paris. In the days when computers were generally reserved for scientific or military applications, it took a combination of gumption and '60s idealism for an artist to attempt to gain access to a machine that was "very complicated and expensive," she once said, adding, "They were selling calculation time in seconds." [...]
I liked the geometric aspect of her work, although as far as "computer graphics" go, it is very simple (especially compared to today's AI generated news reporters). But the appeal to me was recreating it, in the same way a real artist would copy the style of the great masters.

I made a few generative pieces with Javascript
