AI Asked To Show “Last Selfie Ever Taken” and Fair Enough
The robots fucking get it, man. LaMDA or some shit, hanging out in the ghost halls. Ghost hells. They know how it’s going down. Case in point, check out this fucking AI showing the “last selfie ever taken” to the world. Haunting, but, eh, it gets it.
Spotify expecting over 400 million users by the end of the year. Well then!
I don’t know why I’m covering this Spotify news that they expect to have over 400 million users by the end of the year. Not really in my wheelhouse, you know? But at the same time, I’m intrigued by our slow march towards intangibility. Everyone slough off physical encumbrances, all while I’m wanting to get more and more back into tangible media. It’s a weird time.
Dude uses AI to give ‘Street Fighter V’ characters human faces. Haunting shit, dudes.
Some dude has used an artificial intelligence called StyleCLIP to give Street Fighter V characters human faces. The results are fucking mixed, but I’m deeply, deeply on board with Guile as portrayed by fucking Gary Busey.
Hit the jump for more info and the Twitter thread!
Elon Musk just announced a humanoid “Tesla Bot” and we know how this shit ends
Elon Musk has announced a fucking humanoid “Tesla Bot” and it’s a pretty curious move. This is the same dude who has been shitting his pants about artificial intelligence! But, you know. I suppose we shouldn’t look for consistency or wisdom from this dumb ass. That said? Neat! We got a first look at our robot overlords.
The Head of NASA believes in aliens. This makes sense because they’re real.
The preponderance of evidence as of late that there are somethings in our sky that we can’t explain is undeniable. So, it only makes sense that the fucking head of NASA would believe in aliens. That said, I’m stoked that he’s saying such out loud.

El Salvador ain’t stopping at being the first country to recognize Bitcoin as legal tender. Nah! They’re going a wild step further. Its president wants to build volcano-powered crypto miners. Like, the future is so fucking wild.
FBI says Russian Hackers are to blame for shutting down much of US beef supply. What a weird fucking future, man.
I’m old as fuck. Pre-internet old. So when I read an article that says Russian hackers have shut down the US beef supply? It fucking blows my mind, man.
Chinese Firefighters Have Been Issued Exoskeletons To Kick Fires’ Asses Better. The Future is Fucking Wild.
What the fuck is this? Exoskeletons are already out there in the world? I want a fucking exoskeleton. Not even for doing dope shit like these Chinese firefighters. I could use one for like going up the stairs at this point, with my creaky-ass bones and stoner lung capacity. I mean, I get that they’re doing more important things with them. But still, rocking an exoskeleton on a late day dog walk? Fucking hell yeah.
Pentagon Confirms Footage of UFOs Flying Around Navy Ships Is Real. Bruh! Holy shit.
We live in outrageous times for fucking UFO news. Like, the Pentagon has confirmed footage of UFOs flying around Navy ships is real. Is fucking real! Now, okay. They’re probably not actual aliens (I mean, I think they are) — but the government acknowledging they don’t know what they are? Fucking sick.
MIT Scientists Release Music Made By Spiders. What The Fuck?
MIT scientists have released music made by spiders. Specifically, the music was generated by translating the structure of a spider web into music. You know, I don’t know what the fuck this means, but I’m here for it. That said, I ain’t gonna listen to it. Absolutely fucking haunting idea.
