‘I Don’t Really Want to Work for Facebook.’ So Say Some Computer Science Students.

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/11/15/technology/jobs-facebook-computer-science-students.html

Ok so I agree that Facebook's reputation has recently turned sour and Google is closely following it (or is already right there next to them), but I just can't get over how uniquely punch-able these new generation of kids are. I think SJW bullshit is this era's hippy.

Software Pioneer Says General Artifical-Intelligence Very Unlikely

https://mindmatters.ai/2018/11/software-pioneer-says-general-superhuman-artificial-intelligence-is-very-unlikely/

It's interesting to hear Neil Degrass Tyson and Elon Musk talking about how the singularity would occur way faster than you'd think. Cause it's true. But also this guy has a point because if you know anything about machine learning and artificial intelligence, it's not really like the movies at all. It's just stupid algorithms doing weighted probability calculations. The machines are still "dead". It's not like their thinking or anything.

Jesus Christ. I know that if you're unhealthy and fat, you can also pass health problems to your kid. (Getting in shape will also improve your sperm in the same amount of time). Now getting stressed can fuck up your jizz too. Give me a break!

This is a book about analog knobs called Potentiometers. Probably really boring fyi, but I thought it might come in handy for me later.
