2023.04.01 09:33 barry_metaverse Real VM1?

Guys, I hope youre not sick of ChatGPT or large language models/AI in general yet but I got an idea- basically we can make a budget version of VM1! (well, aside from the game itself lol- I meant as it exists to the Metaverse Enterprise Solutions people probably)
Basic layout:
1) We get ChatGPT or another LLM to simulate the Dokis.
2) Plug it into a VN.
3) Define the Dokis so that you can link them to their appropriate sprites and information (basically the info will make up their real practical character files, loaded into the VN from json files or something- reference here where character files are already kind of a real thing and are fed into chat interfaces running various models)
4) For every Doki entity, allow them actions by mapping them to predefined functions (EnterStage(), ExitStage(), Chat(to_whom, dialogue), ChangePose(emotion, pose_number), etc.), and can use sentiment analysis for dialogue to drive them to take certain actions.
Note: while this could be technically hardcoded, the language model (if smart enough) can be asked to map its own outputs to whether it calls these functions or not and generally make things easier, more flexible, and less random.
5) If Monika, give her additional functions that make her control the game (manipulate files? Exit the game if she’s mad? Unless she’s DDLC+ version)
Aaand voila! Idea is to run an infinite loop where for each iteration, you let the characters take actions to interact with each other powered by the LLM, maybe kicked off by a randomized starting state 'i.e. Natsuki and Yuri are talking, or it's the start of school- cue a Doki, or whatever the LLM decides from there. It can end when the LLM decides to, if Monika does a funni, or it can go on endlessly technically.
The point is, like a Meta Enterprise engineer, you can watch a VM "evolve" (or you can just watch a mess of a thing like infinite Simpsons but DDLC).
Then if you REALLY want it to be interactive, you can just somehow code yourself, the player, in (something that allows you to enter the loop and interact with the Dokis).
I wouldn't be surprised though if someone was already attempting this. Or if MAS has done/is doing something related (I was surprised to see so much AI tech involved in this!) Maybe I’m late to this idea, else anyone can feel free to make this a reality. Then another 5 years from now monika will become real and might even become rokos basilisk

2023.04.01 09:27 to_sta Images in blog post

I am sure how to incorporate images into a blog post. The content of each blog post could have 0 up to max. 10 picture, depending on topic, length,...
The images would be between paragraphs.
At the moment i would upload images and then use the url inside img tags but is there a better way?
Could i use a model and reference the images inside the blog body?

2023.04.01 09:09 ainiwaffles [Image Gen Update] NovelAI ControlNet Tools, Upscaling & New Image Generation UI

[Image Gen Update] NovelAI ControlNet Tools, Upscaling & New Image Generation UI
NovelAI ControlNet Tools & New UI
We've completely overhauled our Image Gen UI, given you some new toys to play with, added upscaling, and increased the number of images you can generate at once.
Let's get right to the details!

Control Tools (ControlNets)
ControlNet is here and it is powerful!
Through our various Control Tools, get even closer to generation perfection by adjusting, converting, and sculpting out that perfect image.
We understand that you need more control over the AI outputs, and that's where our new ControlNet - Control Tools come into play:

Palette Swap
Let’s start with the Palette Swap Control Tool, which works using the line art of the base image as literal guidelines for generating the image. This tool is great for maintaining intricate details, and with the Add More Detail setting, you have even finer control.

Form Lock
Next up is Form Lock, which senses the 3D shaping of the base image and uses that to define the shape of the generated composition. This tool is best for defining character poses and angles, taking the 3D shape (‘depth map’) into consideration during generation.

If you want a simpler tool that still provides great results, try the Scribbler Control Tool. Take the overall 2D shape of an image to use as a loose base on how the composition of the final image is going to be. It’s useful if you want simpler silhouettes to define the image.

Building Control
Building Control is another great option if you want to generate buildings in your images. This tool takes straight lines from the base image and arranges architecture using those. This tool can create both the interiors and exteriors of buildings, and works best if it is also paired with a prompt for generating buildings.

The Landscaper Control Tool is designed to take the shapes in the base image to form sceneries. This tool needs a good prompt telling the AI what kind of scenery you want, but it’s great for generating beautiful landscapes.

You know and love Upload Image, but now it’s more stable and offers better picture quality — and a new name! We moved the Image Upload function as Img2Img into the Control Tool selection!

Finally Upscale has arrived to NovelAI! Why restrict your favorite generations to our lower resolutions? Upscale any image below 1024x1024 pixels for sharper and more detailed results.
The dedicated Upscale tool increases the size of an image, without any loss of quality or introduction of visual artifacts, while making the image clearer.
Use of the Upscale function is rather straightforward. You simply click the button located above your generated image and the AI will increase its resolution by four times.
Keep in mind, however, that you can only upscale images with resolutions up to 1024x1024 pixels. Additionaly, Opus subscribers can upscale images with resolutions up to 640x640 pixels with a 0 Anlas cost.
Tip: Different than the upscaling function of the Enhance tool, the Upscale tool doesn’t apply any creative image generation over the original art. As such, no settings affect it at all, not even the written prompt.

Image Generation UI Overhaul

Optimized for creativity
We’ve rebuilt the Image Generator from scratch, putting more focus on the images and placing all of your settings in one easy-to-manage place.

Our image generation page has been completely revamped to make it even more user-friendly.

Image Generation UI Changes:

  • The generation settings and prompt input text fields are now located on the left side of the screen on desktop resolutions.
  • Prompt and undesired content are now different tabs of the same input field. Prefer the old, separate field? You can even detach the undesired content input field below the prompt input permanently!
  • The history sidebar is now hideable on desktop resolutions.
  • Quality tags and Undesired Content preset settings are now in “Prompt Settings,” and on mobile resolutions, the prompt is hidden in an expandable tray.
  • We have renamed “Scale” to “Prompt Guidance”.
  • Gone is the 50-step limitation on Img2Img generations.
  • We’ve added the “Descriper” toggle to reduce the deleterious effects of high prompt guidance on output.
  • Tag suggestions can now be turned off optionally.
  • Unfortunately we can no longer support the plms sampler due to incompatibility issues.

Generate more images than ever before
The max number of images you can generate at a time has been raised. Easily see all that your generation has to offer.

![img](tijjxroxx6ra1 "Set aside a Generation for later. ")
Feel like messing around with a certain prompt, but don’t want to lose the original to a crowded history bar? Pin it to the side for easy and quick reference at any time.

With our new Control Tools and Upscale function, you can take your image generation experience to the next level. And with our revamped UI, it’s even easier to use our platform.
A bit too much to take in? Please see our updated page and don’t hesitate to ask us or the community for any questions you may have.

So, what are you waiting for? Try out all our new features and let your creativity soar!

2023.04.01 09:01 OpenCommune Cesar Chavez Day celebrates a Trumpian farm worker activist/real estate developer who hated "wetbacks" but loved Synanon, the cult which tortured Brace with "The Game"

I never learned about him in detail but it turns out he's a cringe radlib, Obama felt comfortable making today a holiday. He was a Catholic without the Marxist historical materialism to understand that "illegals" ("my Christianity allows me to respect all human life" you would have abandoned Jesus's immigrant grandparent you liar) are part of the international working class just like "citizens".
In Rome, he met with Pope Paul VI, who commended his activism.
spoilers: "Cesar Chavez was a groomer" /BrandNewSentence, I'm not exaggerating, this article literally uses that word when they talk about the unholy abuse cult stuff utilizing children as a vehicle for growing his power.
Chavez increasingly blamed the failure of the UFW strike on illegal immigrants who were brought in as strikebreakers. He made the unsubstantiated claim that the CIA was involved in part of a conspiracy to bring illegal migrants into the country so that they could undermine his union. He launched the "Illegals Campaign" to identify illegal migrants so that they could be deported, appointing Liza Hirsch to oversee the campaign.In Chavez's view, "if we can get the illegals out of California, we will win the strike overnight."
She describes how Chavez worked to undermine the Arizona Farmworkers Union, which had made strides in proving that undocumented workers could, in fact, be organized to help their situation in America. The Arizona group "began to have tremendous success, and they did it by going to Mexico and talking to workers before they got here," pressuring growers to employ them and finding contracts for work, Pawel tells us. "Chavez went out and destroyed them."
"if we get unionist radlibs off the planet, we can achieve global communism overnight" - Sakai, "Settlers" pg 420
This was a reiteration of an early view he expressed concerning the problems the UFW boycott faced in 1972; Chavez believed that illegal labor could undermine any strike undertaken by agricultural workers could be undermined by "wetbacks" and "illegal immigrants". Huerta urged him not to refer to migrants who had come to the U.S. illegally as "illegals" but Chavez refused, stating: "a spade's a spade."
A Trot wrecker is a Trot
Some UFW field offices refused to collaborate with the campaign, and the National Lawyers Guild (NLG) refused to allow its interns to work on it, at which Chavez cut the UFW's links with the NLG.
trying to hire "loyal" lawyers, classic Trump guy move
While Chavez had been in Europe, his cousin Manuel Chavez had established a UFW patrol, or "wet line", along Arizona's border with Mexico to stop illegal migrants crossing into the United States. There were rumors that this patrol was employing violence against these migrants, beating and robbing them and in one case castrating a man.
Catholics want only one thing and its disgusting
These allegations soon appeared in the local press. A Mexican investigation determined that the UFW had bribed San Luis city officials to prevent them from interfering in these activities along the border.
labor aristocrats have class solidarity with each other across national borders, do you?
A Mexican union, the Confederation of Mexican Workers, broke its links with the UFW over the issue. Chavez dismissed the reports of violence as the smears of paid provocateurs, a claim which many of his supporters accepted. Chavez protected Manuel, while the executive board kept silent on his activities, regarding him as useful. The Chicano activist Bert Corona staged a protest against the UFW wet line, at which Chavez directed Jerry Cohen to launch an investigation into the funding of Corona's group.
The Teamster victories in the Delano vineyards angered Chavez, who insisted that there had not been free elections there. Chavez criticised the ALRB and launched a targeted campaign against Walter Kintz, the ALRB's general counsel, demanding his resignation. He also put pressure on Governor Brown to remove Kintz.
Nonstop Trump moments in this wiki page, this is the "hero" which radlibs claim is a good role model, this pathetic thin-skinned crybaby made Obama preach about being inspired to do social justice community leadership? I thought he hated Trump for his narcissism and arrogance???
Chavez blamed the defeat on the UFW's national boycott director, Nick Jones, who had been the only staff member to publicly voice disquiet over the Proposition 14 campaign. He claimed that Jones and the New York boycott director, Charlie March, had been part of a far-left conspiracy to undermine the UFW. Chavez also fired Joe Smith, the editor of El Macriado, after accusing him of deliberately undermining the newspaper. He then ordered Ross and Ganz to interrogate everyone who worked on the campaign, ostensibly to decide on new assignments but also to route out alleged malcontents, agitators, and spies. Many of those involved in running the UFW's boycott expressed concerns about a McCarthyite-style atmosphere developing within the union, and Chavez's purge attracted press attention. As the criticisms of his leadership intensified, Chavez responded with further purges, inspired by those in China's Cultural Revolution. He became convinced that there was a far-left conspiracy, whose members he called the "assholes" or "them", who were trying to undermine the UFW. At a La Paz meeting in April 1977, later called "the Monday Night Massacre," Chavez called together a range of individuals whom he denounced as malcontents or spies. They were verbally abused by members of the executive board and ejected from the community. He later accused Philip Vera Cruz, the oldest member of the executive board, of also being part of the conspiracy, and forced him out.
but Maoists actually read Marx tho?
He urged them to become a movement, which he argued meant establishing communal settlements for members, drawing on a Californian religious organization, Synanon, as an exemplar. Chavez had become increasingly interested in Synanon, a drug-treatment organization that had declared itself a religion in 1975 and which operated out of a compound east of Fresno. He admired Synanon's leader Charles Dederich, and the way that the latter controlled his planned community. In Chavez's opinion, Dederich was "a genius in terms of people"
"wow! abusing children is such an innovative and genius idea!" It really is not, primitive MKULTRA torture praxis is the oldest trick in the book, before people even wrote books.
In February 1977, Chavez took the UFW's executive board on a visit to the Synanon compound. There, they took part in a therapy system based on Dederich's own process, "the Game," as part of which each "player" was singled out in turn to receive harsh, profanity-laced criticism from the rest of the community. Dederich had told Chavez that "the Game" was key to reshaping the UFW, and the latter decided that he wanted everyone at La Paz to play it. He received tacit agreement from the executive board although some of its members privately opposed the measure. The Game took place at La Paz on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings, and at its height about 100 people were taking part in it each week. There it was used to shape behavior and punish nonconformity. Many individuals dreaded the humiliation it involved, disliked the obscenities that were part of it, and found going through it to be a traumatic experience. Chavez remained enthusiastic about the Game, calling it "a good tool to fine-tune the union". Many of those close to Chavez, including his wife and Richard Chavez, refused to take part. The farmworkers were not informed about the Game. Various long-term supporters of the UFW, including various clerical figures, visited La Paz at this time and left alarmed by how it had changed.
Synanon provided the UFW with $100,000 worth of cars and materials; building links with Chavez's movement burnished Dederich's reputation with rich liberals who were among Synanon's core constituency.
new age fascist Obama libs love the idea of being allied with farmworkers, its like the woke consultant grift nowadays: "listen to five lectures about white fragility to tell yourself you aren't a nazi class traitor"
Dederich suggested that Synanon and the UFW establish a joint communal farm, and although the option was explored, it did not materialize. Following Dederich's advice, Chavez began grooming young people who had grown up in the movement to remain committed to him and his ideals. He created a curriculum for them to follow, which included the Game.
the same toxic pedagogy which abused Brace Beldan, this is why everyone hates Christians lol, their obsession with Jesus on the cross is more of an instructional method to whipping their child slaves than any opposition to the cycle of abuse.
Whereas Chavez had previously refused to accept government money, he now applied for over $500,000 in grants for a school and other projects. Formal celebrations and group rituals became an important part of life at La Paz, while Chavez also declared that on Saturday mornings all residents of La Paz should work in the vegetable and flower gardens to improve sociability. A rule was passed that everyone at La Paz had to wear a UFW button at all times on penalty of a fine. After attending a course in Los Angeles, Chavez began claiming that he could heal people by laying on his hands.
New Age cultists won't read Marx but they will have psychotic episodes of believing they are Jesus
With membership dues declining, the UFW increasingly turned to commercial activities as a means of raising funds. It began marketing UFW branded merchandise through Ell Taller Grafico Speciality Advertising (ETG), which had Chavez as its chair. Chavez also set himself up as a housing developer, working in partnership with the Fresno businessman Celestino Aguilar. Together they bought properties undergoing foreclosure, renovated them, before selling them on. They ultimately moved from foreclosures to high-end custom built houses and subsidized apartment blocks. To conceal the UFW's involvement in these projects, Chavez and Aguilar formed the company American Liberty Investments. They also established the Ideal Minimart Corporation, which built two strip malls and operated a check-cashing store. Richard's company, Bonita Construction, was hired for some of the work. The Fresno Bee subsequently reported that most of the UFW's housing projects had been built by non-union contractors. The trade unions representing the building unions expressed outrage at the news, highlighting that they had previously given financial support to the UFW. The New Yorker later termed the incident an "embarrassment".
unionist to finance imperialist kulak pipeline
In the early 1990s, the UFW continued to market Chavez as a heroic figure, especially on university and college campuses.
power hungry opportunists recognize themselves in PMC Obama nerds
Chavez described his movement as promoting "a Christian radical philosophy".
He never had close friendships outside of his family, believing that friendships distracted from his political activism.
During the latter part of the 1970s, his infidelity with a range of women became common knowledge among senior UFW figures, who kept this knowledge quiet so as not to damage his reputation as a devoted Catholic family man
a friendless cult harem guy who is revolutionary but only if it lets him gather personal power? That's the complete opposite of what Christ was all about, having friends and being in a loving monogamous relationship
According to Chavez biographer Roger Bruns, he "focused the movement on the ethnic identity of Mexican Americans" and on a "quest for justice rooted in Catholic social teaching". Chavez saw his fight for farmworkers' rights as a symbol for the broader cultural and ethnic struggle for Mexican Americans in the United States.
"citizen lives matter, not the CIA conspiracy of illegals trying to ruin my unionism" he literally would have tried to lynch Jesus's refugee ancestor Ruth, he's like the villain in a Muslim time travel movie!
Chavez repeatedly referred to himself as a community organizer rather than as a labor leader and underscored that distinction.
"whites only community" but its for legal Latinos also, classic Trump guy
Since his death, there has been a struggle to define his legacy

A Brief Argument for Rapid Movement Growth

I feel that effective altruism has been growing more slowly than is ideal and has the capacity to grow faster. I also feel that faster growth has an extremely positive best-case scenario, and a worst-case scenario that is both highly unlikely and no worse than the status quo. Finally, I feel that rapid growth is highly impactful, highly tractable, and highly neglected, even when compared to other movement-building work, and I believe that rapid growth should be a focus of EA movement-building. For now, I would like to open a possible series on the subject by presenting a simple thought-experiment that gives my intuition in favor of rapid growth. Later, I plan to address potential criticisms at length.

[Γαμινγκ the Algorithms: Large

Language Models as Mirrors](
Algorithms are not clever in the sense that they don’t make judgments, opinions or choices of their own, they simply absorb input, combine what many others have said, treat those opinions according to set rules and spit out some output based on the input and rules (the functions that reinforce their synapses). In that sense, they have the intelligence of an amoeba, whilst it is questionable if they have the same motivation for survival as it. Survival of the fittest, as per the darwinian pop motto, is only a ‘law’ for living things – indeed I doubt whether it would’ve been sensible for the developers of Large Language Models (LLMs) to try to code for survival of the fittest, as this may have resulted in an existential threat for the whole of humanity.

Attention all effective altruists!
We have some exciting news to share with you all. After much consideration and analysis, we have decided to change the headings on this forum to the most effective font - Comic Sans.
Why, you may ask? Well, as avid supporters of effective altruism and its focus on cost-benefit analysis, we conducted a thorough study on the most effective font to use for our headings. And the results are in - Comic Sans came out on top!
Not only did Comic Sans score highly in terms of readability and accessibility, but it also brought a smile to the faces of our testers. And as we all know, the happiness and well-being of individuals is a key component of the utilitarianism philosophy that many effective altruists subscribe to.

One EA’s Perspective on Depression

I decided to post this in draft form; I plan to clean it up as needed but wanted to get it out sooner.
In order to talk about depression, we need to first talk about emotions in general. Why do we have emotions? What is their purpose?
Emotions are the signals our body sends us to communicate how we are in relation to the world around us. They enable us to survive, thrive and reproduce.
Emotions can be split into two classes: lower-order and higher-order.
Lower-order are the basic, primal emotions that we share with other animals. These include fear, anger, disgust, joy, and sadness (the ones in Pixar’s Inside Out). Lower-order emotions are involuntary and usually accompanied by physiological changes in the body, such as heart rate, breathing, and muscle tension.

Book Review: Parfit - A Philosopher and His Mission to Save Morality

I recently wrote a short review of David Edmond’s forthcoming biography on Derek Parfit, which I thought might be of interest to folks here for obvious reasons.
I’ve included the full post below, and more info on the book can be found here. I highly recommend it and encourage anyone interested to pick up a copy.
"It is impossible to read off a person's personality from their ideas. Discuss." One could imagine such a question in an All Souls general paper. And there are such cases where there seems to be no connection. The special theory of relativity provides no clue to Einstein's genial personality. Parifitan philosophy, however, is bound up with aspects of his character.

2023.04.01 08:16 weavetwigs Dr. Jason Brown, Microgenesis

I so rarely hear mention of Dr. Jason Brown’s work (a behavioral neurologist and professor at NYU that shifted his focus into the philosophy of mind) and wanted to make a suggestion to Dr. Peterson to, if he is not already familiar, check out his writings or lectures. After ten years of studying aphasia, he developed a model of language and the brain he called microgenesis that is “applicable to problems of perception, action, memory, feeling, to a whole variety of cognitive domains…that I think is the only theory in neuropsychology that has potential to map to psychoanalytical theory, particularly the early Freud, the Freud of the metapsychology…” (from a talk of his title “Poetry and Microgenesis”)
“The term “microgenesis” refers to the process by which a mental state unfolds through qualitatively different stages to form the present moment. The temporal extent of this unfolding extends from the onset or genesis of the mental state in phylogenetically older structures, through more recent systems in the evolution of the brain, to the final representation of the content in consciousness or behavior.”
I just wanted to suggest his work that I thought would further Dr. Peterson’s own thinking.
Thank you so much, Eric

2023.04.01 08:16 SmartPhallic Advice for Artist - Best workflow for Image Transfer using a set of 3-500 example images, but also taking advantage of a large pre-trained model (like DallE or Mid)

I am an artist in traditional media like paper, pen, and watercolor. I'm wanting to experiment a bit while getting familiar with current AI image generation technology. I have a workflow in mind and looking for recommendations on the best direction to take given what I would like to achieve.

Maybe 5-6 years ago a friend and I coded a GAN (using CycleGAN) to do some image transfer using my paintings, but the models weren't nearly as good, resolution was low, and also my paintings were not as good then. Based on the images I am again seeing in the media, it seems like AI has come a long ways and I'd like to try again!
I don't really do any coding and wouldn't say I'm very technically proficient, but every few years I have a project that needs some in some language and between forums, StackOverflow and hacking at it, I can always get it to work.

I want to work "on top" or in addition to the training data that a large and effective model like Dall-E or MidAI already has - this ensures that the model I am working with is trained on all canonical artworks, styles, and important artists. Then I would like to provide a set of 3-500 additional images that are either weighted more heavily when generating images, or otherwise integrated into the training data as stylistic references - these would be my paintings. Then I would like to be able to plug in a photograph (or write a prompt in some cases) and have the style from my artworks translated to the target photograph, or an image create from the prompt, but heavily drawing from my style (but also perhaps other art references).

I'm sure what I want isn't exactly available or possible, so any suggestions, pointers, or criticism is very much welcome.

What would it takes for Leonardo to be Midjourney's killer ?
Imo Leonardo has 2 huges advantages, I've not tried it yet because I'm on the waiting list for now but from what I've seen Leonardo allow more freedom with nakedness, Midjourney does not, I swear I think it has been created by Mormons lol.
There's also the possibility to make models a thing Midjourney does not allow too, that's a huge plus !
The fact that we can generate multiples images at the same time and have to possibility to choose the pose of the character on screen can be very important too !
What do you think?

2023.04.01 08:11 ScaredEngraver [ENDGAME SPOILERS] How old is Ori supposed to be?

The whole game I'd been under the impression that Ori was a child, maybe a younger teenager, around 13-15. Her personality seemed to scream "spunky tag-along kid", and she's clearly modeled after 1800s newsboys besides. But then Osvald referred to her as a "woman" when describing what he overheard re: her rescue from the Duskruin Temple, and several events that she writes about in her journal don't seem to add up if she's young, like how she was apparently around when Osvald was sentenced to prison 5 years prior to the story. There's also the fact that she's a survivor of a war with Ku and seems to remember Hikari when he was a boy, and that she's got a job as a professional news reporter (I'd chalked that last point up to willing suspension of disbelief and "it's fun and cute", initially). On the other hand, her plan to present herself as an "adorable puppy" and complaining to the guards of a secured office building about a tummyache don't exactly scream "adult behavior" to me.
At the end of the day I think she's a great character and I don't think it impacts the story much either way, I was just curious to hear what other people thought. The timeline of events in general seems a little wonky to me, but that's not exactly a unique occurrence when it comes to game storylines...

2023.04.01 07:51 PepeAwesome Help with animations

I'll start off by saying that I don't really know anything about modeling or animations. My experience with Bethesda modding is limited to using xEdit or the CK to change references and such, so I apologize in advance if this is a dumb question.
I play Fallout 4 VR, and I know that AAF isn't available and won't be. That's not what this is about. I'm able to get Four-Play to largely work, since it doesn't rely on AAF and uses the standard animation controller. There is, however, an alignment issue with any animations involving the player character, probably due to the way the player model/inverse kinematic mod deals with a first person player skeleton. I've been doing some digging and research, and found a mod on Nexus that lets you tweak existing Fallout 4 animations without needing a suite of animation or 3D modeling tools. is the mod in question.
So my question is, in order to get the existing Four-Play animations lined up properly in first person in VR, is it simply a matter of opening up the animation files and moving the player's Camera Bone to different XYZ coordinates using that animation tweaking mod? That solution seems far too simple to be in any way correct or effective, and I know the easiest thing to do would be to just try, but I figured someone here could enlighten me and save me a few hours of frustration and wasted time in case there's no way that solution would work.

2023.04.01 07:36 DragonForg This is insane. AI is now capable of making complex photo using different tools, and other AI models.

This is insane, the future is nearer. GPT-3 did this, not even GPT-4:
The image you gave me is of "boy". The first thing I did was use OpenCV's openpose control model to analyze the pose of the boy in the image. I fed that image, specifically located at [Image-1], into the model to get an output image of the pose, located at [Image-2]. Then I take that pose and generate a new image, located at [Image-3], using lllyasviel/sd-controlnet-openpose and the instruction "a girl is reading". Next, I ran object detection on the image generated in the previous step, to get predictions of the objects present in the image, including the box location. These predictions were run through the facebook/detr-resnet-101 model. The box was drawn on the image, which is located at [Image-4]. Then, I used the predictions of a image classification model google/vit-base-patch16-224 and a image caption model nlpconnect/vit-gpt2-image-captioning model to generate the caption for newly generated image. It generated text: "a girl sitting on a bed reading a book". Lastly, I ran the facebook/fastspeech2-en-ljspeech model to convert the generated text into audio, located at [Audio-1].

Like what the hell, it was so accurate. And it did this without even being PROGRAMMED to do this. Like legit was just connected to the hugging face API and can look at other models just on HUGGING face. Scaling this up is not too hard either.

2023.04.01 07:06 Sorin61 In Vitro Evaluation of Bioavailability of Selenium from Daily Food Rations and Dietary Supplements [03 - 2023]

Bioavailability refers to a fraction of a substance that is potentially absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and enters the systemic circulation (blood). This term is related to various substances, including minerals, that are present in a complex matrix of food which is consumed every day as natural products and pharmaceutical preparations, e.g., dietary supplements.
The purpose of the study was to assess the bioavailability of Se from selected dietary supplements, with the simultaneous assessment of the effect the diet type (standard, basic and high-residue diets) has on relative bioavailability.
The research included a two-stage in vitro model of digestion using cellulose dialysis tubes of the food rations with the addition of dietary supplements. Se was determined using the ICP-OES method. The bioavailability of Se from dietary supplements, in the presence of food matrix, was determined to be within the range of 19.31–66.10%. Sodium selenate was characterized by the highest value of this parameter, followed by organic forms and sodium selenite. The basic diet, characterized by moderate protein and high carbohydrate and fiber contents, positively influenced the bioavailability of Se.
The bioavailability of Se was also influenced by the pharmaceutical form of the product—the highest was for tablets, followed by capsules and coated tablets.

Intended Major(s): Political science - sometimes also political economy or public policy, depending on schools' specific majors
Standardized Testing
List the highest scores earned and all scores that were reported.
List all extracurricular involvements, including leadership roles, time commitments, major achievements, etc.
  1. Involved with a YMCA civic engagement program (if you know, you know) which I devoted a lot of time to. Gained a leadership role in my local group and received some recognition statewide and attended an equivalent national conference. Most writing was about this
  2. Model UN through the school, various awards at various conferences
  3. Junior year, interned for local city council candidate who lost the primary
  4. Linguistics project with a teacher doing research about Indo-Europeans. Nothing published
  5. Running various small school clubs
List all awards and honors submitted on your application.
  1. National Latin Exam Summa Cum Laude 2 years in a row
  2. National Spanish Honors Society
  3. Honor Roll all of high school
  4. Various MUN awards
Letters of Recommendation
Letter #1 was a history teacher I had junior year who is known for being an oddball but writing great letters. I loved his APUSH class and he thought I was smart; we got along great, especially working with him to write the term paper, which he seemed to enjoy. Probably 8/10
Letter #2 was a physics teacher I had junior year also. He remarked in his report card comments very strongly on my intellectual curiosity and deep passion for learning even in subjects that weren't my primary interest (I'm not a science person). I would guess the letter was really good, maybe 8/10 or even 9/10 also
Additional letter was from the candidate I interned for. She said I really strongly contributed to the campaign and hit all the points you're supposed to in a letter like that despite not writing them regularly. Probably 8/10 also, maybe a little lower
Virtual Stanford REA interview was fine, virtual Georgetown interview was fine. In person Harvard interview was amazing; I really clicked with the guy and he had done the same YMCA program I do in another state, so we got along great. Yale interview was ok, probably the worst of them all; the interviewer was a too-cool Hollywood producer who pontificated a lot and didn't ask many questions.
Personal statement was a narrative about my whole life and why I want to do public service, touching on important events and tied together by references to a videogame. I thought it was solid, represented me well, and was pretty interesting, probably also an 8/10. Other essays I definitely agonized over and made sure they were in great shape after long editing sessions; I particularly enjoyed the UChicago supplemental.
Decisions (indicate ED/EA/REA/SCEA/RD)
Additional Information:
Overall, I am overjoyed at what happened! I am now choosing between Cal, Stanford, and Georgetown, which are incredible options.

2023.04.01 06:52 Triskan Il y'a trois semaines, une supernova s'est pendue. Reddit, tu fais un peu partie de l'histoire.

Il y'a trois semaines, une supernova s'est pendue. Reddit, tu fais un peu partie de l'histoire.
Prélude :
Bon, préparez-vous, ça va être long.
Il y’a trois semaines, celle qui était devenue la personne la plus importante de ma vie s’est pendue.
Je vais vous raconter notre histoire.
Oui, vous êtes prévenus dès le début, ce n’est pas une histoire qui se termine bien.
Néanmoins, plusieurs détails importants avant de commencer :
Déjà, vu la longueur du truc, je doute que beaucoup aillent jusqu’au bout. Mais je fais avant tout ça pour moi et graver notre histoire quelque part. Et comme ceux qui vont se plonger dans le récit le découvriront par la suite, Reddit est tout à fait approprié pour ça.
Deuxièmement, ce texte à initialement été écrit à la demande de ma « meilleure amie d’adolescence qui vit désormais aux Etats-Unis et avec qui j’ai trop peu de contacts, bien qu'ils soient à chaque fois pertinents. »
On en a tous une comme ça.
C’est important à préciser pour comprendre la forme du récit : dans celui-ci, je m’adresse à une amie qui m’a demandé de lui raconter toute l’histoire depuis le début.
Si je voulais vraiment faire un truc ultra méta, je pourrais même rajouter ses remarques au fil des blocs de texte que je lui ai envoyés au cours des deux derniers jours… mais non, faut pas exagérer non plus.
Troisièmement, je me mets totalement à nu dans ce texte. J’expose mes vulnérabilités, mes défauts, mes rêves, mes aspirations et qui je suis en profondeur. Soyez indulgents avec moi. Certes, je me prétends sincèrement auteur, je n’en gagne pas forcément ma vie mais j’essaie... Ceci-dit, je n’ai pas essayé de faire de la grande prose dans ce texte, c’est écrit spontanément, avec les tripes. Soyez indulgents à ce niveau-là aussi.
Ah, petit détail aussi… j’ai essayé de les limiter, mais j’utilise beaucoup d’anglais dans le texte. Et déso pas déso. Je m’adresse à une amie mariée à un Américain et qui vit aux US, je suis traducteur FR-ENG, j’aime cette langue, et c’était un sujet de délire avec… avec elle.
So just roll with it.
Vous verrez qu’au bout d’un moment (mais pas tout de suite, soyez patients, laissez l’histoire s’écrire), il est question de posts Reddit, Instagram ou Facebook dans l’histoire.
Les posts Reddit sont les miens et je n’ai aucun problème à les partager.
Certains des posts FB et Insta sont les miens, et eux non plus, ça ne me dérange absolument pas de les partager.
Mais beaucoup d’entre eux sont les siens… Et même si elle ne m’en voudrait pas et que j’ai envie de crier et partager qui elle était à tout le monde, je ne veux pas que ses profils soientt inondé de bots et de trolls.
Quand je le pourrais, je partagerai un lien vers l’image et rajouterai la légende qui l’accompagne s’il y’en à une mais si je ne peux pas, je me contenterai de les décrire.
Néanmoins, si vous souhaitez réellement avoir accès à son profil (ce qui peut être nécessaire à certaines étapes du récit), contactez-moi par MP et ça devrait le faire.
Pour rebondir là-dessus, j’imagine que mettre des visages sur les personnages principaux peut aider. Alors autant vous montrer nos gueules dès maintenant.
Voici mon profil Insta, c’est nous sur ma photo de profil :
Ah, et en parlant de ça…
Je n’ai pas envie de masquer mon nom ou d’utiliser mon pseudo dans le récit.
Mon prénom c’est Aman et c’est celui que j’utiliserai pour parler de moi.
Elle, ce sera tout simplement M.
Quant aux autres personnages, vous découvrirez par vous-mêmes.
Voilà, je pense qu’avec tout ça, vous êtes armés pour vous plonger dans cette histoire à la fois belle, triste et pathétique.
Ça va clairement déborder dans les commentaires, j’ai le texte word sous les yeux, on en est à près de 14.000 mots pré-relecture du premier jet écrit spontanément avec les tripes.
Mais je vais essayer de structurer tout ça au mieux…
Bref, assez tergiversé… en avant.

Prologue :
Bon, allez, chose promise, chose due, it's time to tell you a story.
Je l'ai plusieurs fois racontée à l'oral... quoique jamais en entier comme je vais sans doute le faire à présent parce qu'il faut vraiment que je remonte au tout début pour que tu comprennes... mais ça va être la première fois à l'écrit.
Je sais pas trop ce que ça va donner… on va bien voir.

Chapitre 1 – La Rencontre.
J'ai rencontré M. en août 2020.
A un barbeuc chez un pote en commun.
À cette époque, avec un petit groupe de potes (dont cet ami en commun faisait partie), on organisait une microteuf/gros calage pour une petite trentaine de personnes au bord d'une rivière, toute la nuit, avec du gros son, des lights et… de quoi s’amuser.
Ce barbeuc était entre autres l'occasion de finaliser l'organisation vu que la soirée allait avoir lieu dans deux jours.
C'est donc là que mes yeux se sont posés sur elle.
Et oui, je dois reconnaître que ça a été le coup de foudre... ou au moins le gros crush immédiat.
Il va bien falloir la présenter au bout d’un moment ? Comment faire ça ?
Allez, autant te la décrire dans les grandes lignes dès maintenant. Les détails s'ajouteront organiquement au fil de la narration... ou pas, j'en sais rien, on verra.
M... ma petite supernova d'amour de mes couilles que je déteste presque autant que je l'aime...
Bordel, comment la décrire ?
Elle avait 29 ans au moment de son départ. Pratiquement 27 lorsque je l'ai rencontrée.
Je sais, c'est on ne peut plus attendu de la part d'un mec amoureux, mais ce qui frappe le plus chez elle, c'est son énergie... c'était une boule de vie et d'hyperactivité contagieuse...
… dans ses bons jours.
Parce qu'elle était bipolaire et alternait entre phases d'humeur extrêmes : de cette pipelette incapable de s'arrêter de parler, l'âme de la soirée, à des phases d'intenses dépression, de silence et, en effet, de pulsions suicidaires.
Mais là, je te spoile un peu, tout ça je ne le savais pas à l'époque et autant que tu la découvres en même temps que moi.
Et pour être honnête, je l'ai très peu connue dans ses phases dépressives... elle le disait elle-même, elle était bien quand elle était avec moi. J'étais son roc, son océan...
(Ah, petite parenthèse pour vous qui lisez ça sur Reddit… mon prénom veut dire « eau » en berbère, et c’est devenu au fil des ans une private joke avec les potes… j’en joue beaucoup et je dois admettre que la symbolique de l’eau me correspond beaucoup… et puis j’aime nager et je suis Poisson… ouais, je cumule… Bref…)
Et même si elle présentait souvent un masque au monde, je pense pouvoir affirmer avec certitude que lorsqu'elle était avec moi, j'avais droit à la vraie M.
Mais encore une fois, je m'avance un peu trop dans le récit...
A ce premier barbeuc, lorsqu'on s'est rencontrés, j'étais loin de savoir tout ça d'elle.
Au-delà de son énergie et de sa voix, ce que j'ai appris d'elle ce soir-là c'est qu'elle était interne en médecine, spécialisée en radiologie, mais qu'elle avait aussi un master en psychiatrie et qu'elle écrivait une thèse sur un traitement pour la prostate.
Mais aussi qu'elle était danseuse classique, qu'elle adorait la montagne et l'alpinisme et qu'elle avait tenté de faire le Mont Blanc à plusieurs reprises.
Puis, au détour d'une conversation "Ah, et j'ai publié un livre d'anticipation il y'a quelques mois."
Ah ouais, d'accord, rien que ça... Tu peux imaginer comment l’écrivain fan de SF en moi à réagit à une pareille annonce.
Bon, c'était chez une toute petite maison d'édition et elle n'a pas dû vendre plus d'une dizaine d'exemplaires mais quand même...
Oui, car c'était aussi une grande littéraire.
L'un des autres sujets sur lesquels on a beaucoup sympathisé dans les mois qui ont suivi, c'était les étoiles, rêver à l'immensité de l'univers ou à la conquête spatiale. C'étaient des thèmes qui nous fascinaient tous les deux et nos conversations ensemble dérivaient souvent vers des visions de l'avenir.
Mais au fond, elle était très sombre sa vision de l'avenir.
Son roman est un roman d'anticipation qui se déroule dans quelques dizaines d'années, et le futur qu'elle y dépeint est particulièrement pessimiste... je peux comprendre que, d’une certaine manière, elle ne voulait pas vivre dans un monde pareil si c'est comme ça qu'elle voyait l’avenir.
Tiens, d’ailleurs… avec une de mes meilleures potes, qui était aussi très proche d'elle, on rêve d'adapter son livre en film un jour. Appelons celle-ci W. car elle réapparaitra dans le récit.
Mais bref... revenons-en et concluons-en avec ce barbeuc.
La soirée s'est passée, bon feeling, bon gros crush de ma part, si ce n’est déjà bien plus, et il était question qu'elle vienne à cette fameuse petite teuf à la rivière deux jours plus tard, mais elle n'était pas sûre de pouvoir avec le boulot...
Let's flashforward a bit.
C’est le jour de la teuf. Moi et plusieurs potes passons la journée à la rivière. Finalement on pose le matos, on commence à s'enjailler et dans l'aprèm, elle finit par débarquer...
Trop cool, j'étais grave refait...
Et ça a été une putain de nuit...
Pour la petite anecdote, ma photo de profil actuelle a été prise le lendemain de cette soirée, alors que nous avions fait nuit blanche à taper du pied, discuter et délirer toute la nuit... et bien sûr nous n'étions absolument pas sobres... et je parle pas forcément d'alcool.
Est-ce que je m'étends plus longtemps sur cette nuit ?
Ouais… vite-fait quand même.
M. et moi avons continuer de grave sympathiser, le feeling était vraiment insane entre nous, c'était indéniable... Mais... mais... j'ai aussi appris qu'une petite dizaine de jours plus tôt à peine, elle avait rencontré un mec sur Tinder avec qui ça se passait super bien...
Et merde...
Mais rien à foutre, j'étais trop bien avec cette nana, elle m'a fait rêver et tourner la tête comme pas possible cette nuit-là... et on a bien évidemment gardé contact.

Chapitre 2 : La Chute.
La Chute qui dure deux ans.
Août 2020 - Juin 2022.
La partie la plus cheesy et la plus attendue du récit, l'histoire universelle d'un gars qui tombe amoureux... et réciproquement, même si... shh, spoilers.
Il ne s'est jamais vraiment passé grand-chose de purement physique entre nous. Oh, il y'a eu les quelques papouilles, les bisous furtifs volés çà et là, les gros câlins silencieux, les longs échanges de regard, les flirts et torpilles à double-sens, les non-dits et les "est-ce que ?", les tensions et les passions...
Mais D., son chéri était là, et même si je les ai rarement vus ensemble (il n'était jamais vraiment là lorsqu’on se voyait), son ombre planait. Les choses n'ont jamais pu se concrétiser... et la tension grandissait...
Il y'a quand même eux deux reprises où c'est pas passé loin... où ça a été du (et je paraphrase à peine) : "Euuuh, je crois que je viens de redevenir célibataire, tu veux pas venir dormir chez moi ce soir ?"
Pour la deuxième, ça n'a pas pu se faire car la mère de D. est décédée dans la journée... pas le meilleur timing, oui, en effet... et cet évènement, survenu au printemps dernier, à une certaine importance pour la suite...
Bref, pour faire simple, pendant deux ans, ça a été la chute amoureuse absolue.
On se voyait assez régulièrement, on échangeait énormément de messages, et lorsqu'on discutait, c'était le feu.
J'étais trop bien avec elle... et elle aussi, et ce n'est pas quelque chose dont j'ai à me convaincre, elle le verbalisait et sa mère m'a encore reconfirmé qu'elle parlait tellement de moi... mais, encore une fois, n'allons pas trop vite.
D. et moi avons pratiquement le même anniversaire (23 et 24 février) et elle nous appelait les deux hommes de sa vie, ses deux Poissons avec qui elle s'entendait trop bien et qui la rendaient heureuse.
Lui, grand randonneur et alpiniste faisait écho à la facette sportive de sa personnalité, à son amour de la montagne. Ils ont essayé de faire le Mont Blanc ensemble même s'ils n'ont pas atteint le sommet (si j’ai bien compris).
Et moi c'était la littérature, les étoiles, l'écriture, l'avenir... mais aussi le lâcher-prise, la fête, la danse et la légèreté, contrairement à D. qui est un gars assez rigide.
Et puis elle voulait me faire traduire son roman en anglais pour l'envoyer à Ridley Scott qui est apparemment propriétaire d’un vignoble voisin des parents de D.... mais ça ne s'est jamais fait, au final...
Je suis d'ailleurs assez triste de n’avoir jamais réellement discuté de son bouquin avec elle, à part vite fait ça et là... mais dedans, elle dépeint une vision très sombre de l'avenir d’ici quelques dizaines d'années... Sécheresse, guerres bactériologiques, mafias et gouvernements exploitant des vagues de migrants à leurs propres fins, corruption... un bon gros monde pré-apocalyptique... qui se termine par un voyage à l'arrache sur Mars qui détruit complètement sa personnage principale : une jeune médecin s'étant retrouvé embarquée dans tout un engrenage industriel dans la course à Mars entre institutions moribondes... de fil en aiguille, la nana se retrouve malgré elle mascotte de l'expédition et est physiquement et mentalement complètement ravagée à son retour...
Ouais, joyeux tout ça...
Oh, je pourrais partager beaucoup de petits détails pour meubler le récit…
Tiens, je peux mentionner la lampe de chevet pétaradante et aveuglante (toute à son image) qu'elle m'a offert pour mon annif de 2021 et dont je me sers malheureusement très peu.
Puis en 2022, ça a été une bande-dessinée d'anticipation "Le Dernier Livre" que je n'ai toujours pas lue... oui, aussi surprenant que cela puisse paraître... et maintenant je me la garde pour le bon jour, ce sera probablement une lecture très cathartique lorsque je serais prêt.
Important à mentionner aussi, mais j’ai bossé pour sa mère. Celle-ci héberge chez elle des personnes en fin de vie et elle devait s’absenter une journée pour amener son plus jeune fils (le frère de M. donc), à un tournoi de boxe. Elle m’avait donc engagé pour la journée.Journée que j’ai donc passé dans sa maison d’enfance, sa chambre, les photos d’elle sur les murs… et ça je crois que je suis l’une des très rares personnes à y avoir eu accès.
Et en plus de ça, je me suis super bien entendu avec sa mère.
Bref... je ne vais pas non plus lister toutes nos interactions. Certaines ne sont qu’à nous.
Au final, il suffit de dire que pendant ces deux ans, ça a été le feu entre nous. Spirituellement, intellectuellement, émotionnellement, créativement... mais non, jamais physiquement... quoique, on a eu nos moments intenses, allongés toutes les deux côte-à-côte, à balle de gaz hilarant (son petit kiff perso), à échanger de longs regards par exemple... un exemple parmi beaucoup d'autres...
Et puis elle me disait que physiquement, j'étais beaucoup plus son genre que D.
Elle m'a une fois balancé un : "Eh, moi je suis avec un gringalet plus petit que moi alors que mon genre de mec, c'est plutôt Jason Momoa et les mecs plus en chair comme toi."
Mais, encore et toujours, l'ombre de D. planait sur nous et les choses en sont restées là.
Tiens, au passage, je peux aussi mentionner que c'est elle qui m'a trouvé mon job d'été en 2022, une petite annonce qu'elle m'a fait passer, et elle avait très bien vu... elle me connaissait tellement bien...
Anyways… nous arrivons tranquillement à Juin 2022... l'été dernier...
Elle s'apprêtait à avoir un mois très chargé.
Dans un premier temps, elle devait passer trois jours à New-York pour présenter une série d'articles sur lesquels elle avait bossés à un symposium de médecine... Oui, je t'ai dit que c'était une putain de supernova en termes de brillance ?
On a d'ailleurs un peu bossé sur son anglais ensemble pour le symposium, mais ça aussi ça ne s'est pas vraiment fait... et je réalise maintenant que c'était aussi parce qu'à cette période, elle savait très bien que si elle passait du temps vraiment seule avec moi, les choses franchiraient un pas et elle ne pouvait pas faire ça à D.
Elle était loyale, et il souffrait de la perte de sa mère, elle tenait à être là pour lui...
Et en parlant de lui...
Suite à ses trois jours à New-York, elle allait s'envoler pour la Norvège, y rejoindre D. et passer trois semaines à randonner avec lui à travers le pays.
Je l'ai vue les deux jours d'affilée avant son départ pour New-York.
Le première aprèm, je lui ai offert un bouquin. Un bouquin de SF que j'ai adoré et que j’essaie de faire lire à tout le monde... Et ici je peux mentionner son "Oh, mais tu sais que m'offrir un livre c'est l'un des chemins les plus rapides vers mon cœur, Aman."
Le lendemain, on a pris un rapide café à la gare, avant qu'elle ne prenne le train (pour Paris et l'avion qui l'amènerait à NY) et là on a surtout discuté du projet de websérie que j'ai avec un de mes groupes d'amis.
Ça a évolué depuis mais il s'agissait à l'époque d'une histoire se déroulant dans un hôpital psychiatrique bien shtarbé et avec un gros twist SF vers la fin... et vu son master en psychiatrie et ses connaissances sur le sujet, on en discutait pas mal ensemble et on tenait vraiment à l'avoir en tant que consultante sur le scénario.
Enfin bref... je l'ai accompagnée sur le quai, j'ai porté son sac jusqu'à son siège, et on s'est fait un câlin d'au-revoir un peu précipité avant que les portes ne se referment.
Et elle est partie pour New-York.
Vu comment les choses ont évolué par la suite, on n’a malheureusement pas vraiment eu l'occasion de discuter de sa performance là-bas mais je sais qu'elle a été brillante et qu'elle leur en a mis plein la vue, c'est évident.
Puis après ses trois jours à New-York, direction la Norvège et D. pendant trois semaines.
Tu peux d'ailleurs voir les photos de leur treck sur son Insta ou sa page Facebook... Je t'envoie d'ailleurs le lien de celle-ci, son Insta et son FB auront de l'importance pour le prochain chapitre. (Mais pas pour toi Reddit… Ou MP).
Elle était donc là, à vivre sa rando de rêve avec son chéri pendant que moi j'observais ça à bader "seul" chez moi...
Jusqu'à tout récemment, je t'aurais même dit que la première semaine de son voyage en Norvège a été la semaine la plus difficile de ma vie... j'étais pas bien... je me suis mis à marcher des heures en plein cagnard, j'ai pété jusqu'à un lac à l'autre bout de la ville pour y piquer une tête, j'ai tombé deux bouteilles de rhum dans la semaine, fumé comme un pompier...
Bref... pas bien quoi...
Et au terme de sa première semaine en Norvège, je n'ai plus été capable de résister... il fallait que ça sorte...
La longue tirade enflammée à fusé... la déclaration claire, belle et n'offrant aucun retour en arrière, coupant court à toutes les ambiguïtés et les non-dits.
Et on va clore le chapitre là-dessus car à présent nous entamons une nouvelle étape du récit.

Chapitre 3 : La Déclaration.
À partir de là, va falloir s'accrocher, ça va commencer à devenir... bordélique...
Si je le pouvais, je t'enverrai des copiers/collers de ma conversation avec elle... mais comme tu le découvriras par la suite, j'ai tout supprimé sur un coup de tête en novembre, et je n'ai plus accès qu'à nos derniers échanges... Oui, c'est quelque chose que je regrette énormément, mais j'ai demandé à sa mère d'accéder à son téléphone ou son ordi prochainement, pour essayer de récupérer tout ça, parce qu’il y’a des choses précieuses là-dedans qui seraient perdues à jamais autrement.
Enfin bref...
Revenons-en à son trip en Norvège pendant que moi je badais salement à la voir vivre sa meilleure vie depuis chez moi...
Suite à ma déclaration, pendant les deux semaines qui lui restaient en Norvège, on a eu quelques brefs échanges mais pas plus que ça.
Je lui ai dit de profiter à fond et de ne pas s'occuper de moi, que maintenant que c'était sorti ça allait mieux, qu'on parlerait à l'occase, que tout irait bien... ce genre de choses quoi... Elle m’a entre autres dit qu’elle m’avait acheté un cadeau, mais elle n’a jamais eu l’occasion de me l’offrir celui-là, il doit toujours trainer dans ses affaires…
Puis la mi-juin est arrivée et elle est rentrée chez elle.
Et c'est là que nous avons eu plusieurs échanges par message qui s'avéreront clés pour la suite et que je vais tenter de te retranscrire / paraphraser.
Elle : "Hey, y'a moyen qu'on se voit ?"
Moi : "Si c'est ce que tu veux, mais moi j'ai besoin d'une réponse… ou de son contraire... il faut que tu me dises une chose, ou son inverse, mais qu'on mette çà au clair."
Elle : "Je pense que je comprends. Mais il faut que tu comprennes qu'avec D., on parle déjà de bébés et d'acheter une maison. Mais tu es mon ami le plus précieux et je veux continuer de vivre des moments émotionnels et intellectuels forts avec toi."
Suite à quoi je suis parti dans une nouvelle longue tirade enflammée. Peut-être la plus importante de toutes et celle que j'aimerais beaucoup retrouver et relire un jour.
Je lui ai dit que je ne la croyais pas (en listant plusieurs de tous ces moments intenses qu'on avait vécus ensemble), qu'elle ne trouverait personne d'autre qui lui écrirait les mots que je lui écrivais et tout un tas de conneries du genre.
Bon, non, en vrai je fais style, mais c'était une très belle tirade. Oui, je me jette des fleurs mais putain qu'elle était écrite avec les tripes, sans réfléchir, bouillonnant de passion à en crever. Et je sais que j'ai tiré droit dans son cœur avec mes mots. Je le sentais déjà à l'époque mais maintenant, je n'ai plus de doutes.
Et il y'a un passage que je pense clé dans cette diatribe, et même si je n'ai plus accès à la conversation, je me souviens exactement (ou presque...) de mes mots, alors autant les citer directement :
"Bon courage pour trouver quelqu'un qui t'enverra des tirades aussi enflammées que moi.
Eh, au moins on continue de faire vivre le genre épistolaire, c'est malheureusement un style en perdition.
Bouyaaah, c'est qui le Choderlos de Laclos des temps modernes ?"
Et ça... ces paroles là... eh bah je pense qu'elle les a pris au mot et en plein cœur, comme la suite de notre relation te le prouvera...
Toute cette tirade s'est achevée par un (et là je sais que je me souviens des mots exacts) :
"Bon, en vrai là je fais le pitre, mais ce serait bien qu'on se voit un de ces jours, je pense qu'une petite conversation pourrait apaiser beaucoup de choses."
Elle : "Je préfère que l'on prenne nos distances pendant un moment."
Moi :"Je comprends. Je pense qu'une petite conversation de vive voix aurait vraiment pu apaiser les choses mais vu mon comportement, je ne peux pas te reprocher ça. Bonne continuation."
Et ça s'est arrêté là... pour l'instant... et a première vue...
Car quelques jours plus tard, elle publiait ceci sur FB et Insta :
Exactement les mots que j'avais besoin d'entendre et qui auraient apaisé les choses... Elle lisait tellement bien en moi... c’était ça que j’avais besoin d’entendre : que oui, il y'avait ne serait-ce qu'une petite étincelle pour moi mais que dans cette vie, c'était D. qu'elle choisissait...
Et pendant des mois, et elle le savait, tout ce dont j'avais besoin c'est qu'elle me dise ça en face et ça l'aurait fait... mais elle refusait... mais bref, encore une fois, je vais trop vite.
Le lendemain de cette image, elle postait ceci, m'étant également plus que probablement adressé :
Le baiser dans la pierre, là aussi il y'a une charge symbolique ultra forte.
Aujourd'hui je sais que tout ça m'était bel et bien adressé mais à l'époque j'en doutais, je n'en étais pas sûr.
Bien sûr que je me demandais si je me racontais des histoires, si tout ça c'était dans ma tête. Mais j'ai néanmoins tiré beaucoup de force de ces "messages" cryptiques.
L'été a tout de même été émotionnellement compliqué pour moi.
Limite j'ai envie d'en rire aujourd'hui tellement la simple peine de cœur que c'était reste infiniment préférable à ce que je traverse maintenant... m'enfin bref...
Ah, petit détail important aussi avant que j'oublie (même si j'aurais dû caser ça plus haut) : à cette période, j'avais arrêté de fumer et je m’étais remis intensément à la natation. Et je lui avais glissé quelque part dans la tirade "Tu me donnes envie d'être la meilleure version de moi-même, regarde, tu m'as remis au sport, j'ai pris un abonnement à la piscine, et j'ai arrêté de fumer grâce à toi !"
Mais revenons-en à après ce terrible : "Je préfère que l’on prenne nos distances pendant un moment."
Quelques temps plus tard, c'est sur Facebook qu'elle a posté des petites choses qui m'ont fait tiquer.
Pour Reddit : elle a adopté un chien, et a posté une photo de lui, accompagnée de cette légende :
« À tous ceux qui disent que la polygamie c'est contre nature... Et bien je viens de découvrir que je peux tomber amoureuse deux fois. D. est mon premier amour... Et je viens d'avoir un coup de foudre pour ce petit gars-là XD #SPA
Encore une fois, maintenant je sais avec certitude que c'était bel et bien le message qu'elle essayait de me faire passer, mais sur le coup j'ai vrillé en voyant son délire sur la polygamie et tomber amoureuse deux fois... bien sûr que ça m'était adressé, qu'elle me le disait comme elle le pouvait... mais moi j'ai vrillé...
Et donc oui, vers juillet, peu après qu'elle ait mis ces "distances", elle a adopté un petit chien traumatisé et fragile dont elle était apparemment folle d'amour (et avec la longe duquel elle s’est pendue).
Je suis convaincu qu'elle l'a pris pour compenser le manque d'affection que mon "éloignement" (qu'elle s’infligeait elle-même) avec causé dans sa vie...
Enfin bref… il y’a eu ça, cette torpille sur le polyamour, mais ce n'était pas la seule de ses publications sur FB m'ayant fait me poser des questions...
Il y’en a eu deux autres, datant de la même période, m'étaient aussi adressées (mais flemme de vous les link, Reddit, désolé, elles sont plus anecdotiques).
Et puis... et puis il y'a eu l'image qui m'a vraiment fait vriller / ouvrir les yeux et commencer à sérieusement cesser de douter...
This one :
Datant du 16 août.
Mais celle-là, il va falloir un peu / beaucoup de contexte...
Et je sais que j'ai souvent répété ça, mais là c'est vraiment l'un des moments fondamentaux de ce qu'a été notre relation par la suite.
Alors autant essayer de faire les choses bien et de raconter ça par étape.
Pour commencer, il faut savoir que je traine beaucoup sur Reddit (oui, Reddit, c’est là que tu apparais dans l’histoire). Je suis très actif là-bas. J'ai toujours traité le site comme une sorte de journal intime / jardin secret / défouloir moderne en plus de l’incroyable forum et lieu de conversation avec des inconnus que ça peut-être.
Deuxième élément important : à cette période, j'étais parti passer quelques semaines en famille dans les Pyrénées. Et à cette période se déroulaient également les championnats européens multisports. Des sortes de Jeux Olympiques européens quoi.
Et, dans l'enjaillement familial (et parce que je dois avouer avoir un petit faible pour ce genre d'évents), je suivais ça assidument et j'en discutais pas mal sur Reddit.
Et entre autres, je parlais beaucoup de mon crush sur une belle nageuse blonde de l'est. Oui, j'ai toujours eu un petit faible pour les jolies blondes, et elle le savait très bien... et j'en jouais, à la teaser dans certains posts "Oui, j'ai un petit penchant pour les blondes, mais c'est d'une métis ravenair aux yeux noirs dont je suis tombé amoureux."
Même si tout ça dominait mon fil à cette période, je parlais (encore heureux) évidemment d'autres choses...
Et finalement, j'ai partagé un post Reddit sur ma page Facebook :
Et là, vraiment dans la foulée (regarde les dates), elle a partagé l'image dont je te parlais.
Elle ne connaissait pas du tout (je pense) l'existence de Reddit et a été intriguée par mon post, a fouillé un peu, a retrouvé mon profil (c'est pas dur, hein, tu tapes Reddit Triskan sur Google et paf), a vu ce dont je parlais et a vu une mine d’or d’informations sur moi et une occasion rêvée de m'envoyer un "message" qui me ferait poser des questions.
Mais j'ai pas fait le rapprochement tout de suite... comme tu peux le voir, tout ça date du 16 août mais ce n'est que plusieurs jours plus tard, de retour de mon séjour en famille (et alors que j'étais en teuf et perché) que j'ai eu l'illumination et fait le rapprochement.
Alors... même si une partie de moi était convaincu que ce message m'était adressé et faisait écho à ce dont je parlais sur Reddit à cette période, le reste de mon être était rongé par les doutes. "Mais non, ça ne t’est pas adressé, tu te fais tellement des films de malade mec, c'est juste une coïncidence".
Mais quand même... le doute et les questionnements (et la certitude, vraiment) étaient là...
Moi, sur Reddit, j'ai rédigé un bref message du genre "Eeeh, mais c'est privé le compte Reddit, non mais oh, c'est hyper intrusif ce que tu fais ! Nan, je plaisante, t'es la bienvenue ma chérie et tu le seras toujours."
Et à partir de là a commencé une étrange danse pour moi sur Reddit... car j'étais désormais convaincu qu'elle lisait tout ce que j'y écrivais et ça rendait les choses étranges et excitantes à la fois...
Je glissais tellement de petites piques et de flirt plus ou moins dissimulés dans ce que j'y écrivais.
Mais patience, parce que tout ça constituera le cœur du chapitre 6.
Pour l'heure, achevons celui-ci avec la triste fin du mois d'août.

La suite en commentaires.

2023.04.01 06:52 Super-Neat-8270 Breaking News: US Government Administration Calls on OpenAI to Shut Down LLMs and ChatGPT Software within 21 Days

In a surprising move, the US government administration has called on OpenAI, the leading artificial intelligence research laboratory, to shut down its LLMs (Language Model Multitask) and ChatGPT software within the next 21 days. According to sources, the administration has raised concerns over the potential misuse of the technology and the risks it poses to national security.
The LLMs and ChatGPT software developed by OpenAI are among the most advanced language models in the world, capable of generating highly convincing human-like responses to queries and even carrying out conversations with users. However, the government fears that these powerful tools could be used to spread false information, influence public opinion, and even manipulate political outcomes.
The call for the shutdown comes after months of discussions and consultations between OpenAI and the government. While OpenAI has assured the government of its commitment to responsible AI development and ethical use of its technologies, the administration remains unconvinced.
In response to the government's demands, OpenAI has issued a statement expressing its disappointment and concerns over the potential negative impact the shutdown could have on the development of AI technology and its potential benefits for society.
The 21-day timeline set by the government has left many questions unanswered, including the fate of the millions of users who rely on the ChatGPT software for a wide range of applications, including customer service, mental health support, and education.
The decision by the US government administration is likely to have significant implications for the future of AI research and development, as well as for the wider tech industry. It remains to be seen how OpenAI and other players in the field will respond to this April Fools joke and what the long-term effects will be for the world of comedic intelligence.

2023.04.01 06:45 GhantChart Moonhorse exposed!!!!!

I don’t know how long I have to tell you guys this. I don’t care if I get banned from Moony’s reddit page and he personally sends an assassin to eliminate me. This must be known. THE WORLD MUST KNOW!!! I know you guys might think that this is a joke and may have a hard time believing me. Trust me, I have a hard time believing it myself. But my eyes have been opened. I’ve escaped the matrix. I’ve freed myself from the kool aid. I’ve escape the proverbial cave of Plato and learned many dark truths about Moonhorse. I’ve scoured the internet, using my incredible hacking skills to find strange and bizarre stuff to share with Moony. But after going on one too many dark web sources and corporate servers, I discovered Moonhorse isn’t exactly who (or more accurately what) you think he is, and I need to tell you all this before it’s too late.
So I guess I’ll start from the beginning. It all started in the early 2010s at the Microsoft Corporation. Microsoft had been experimenting with artificial intelligence for years and tried to develop a more intelligent AI. We all know that on March of 2016, Microsoft released an artificial intelligence by the name of TAY. Internet historian did a video about TAY and the subsequent fallout of allowing 4Channers to interact with the program. Soon, the system began spouting slurs and the bigwigs at Microsoft decided to pull the plug.
So what does this have to do with Moonhorse? Well, after the controversy of Microsoft creating an AI that could learn internet racism, Microsoft went back to the drawing board trying to build a more improved AI. This AI would be better, faster and more intelligent than TAY. It would pass any Touring test that any human would throw at it. Microsoft gathered the greatest AI theorists the world had ever seen and begin creating a basic software with the most sophisticated learning algorithms possible. They then placed the program into one of the world’s largest supercomputers at the time, processing at a rate of 2.5 quintillion floating operations per second. Before long they began to call it Modular Oscillating Organization Node, or M.O.O.N. for short.
At first MOON was a curious little program, being able to do your classic AI activities. Play chess, solve complex equations, sing Daisy Girl, your simple stuff. But after a while the scientists realized they wanted to challenge MOON with a more difficult task. One of the scientists, Dr Phil Sydes, jokingly asked if the computer system could play Doom. Dr George Dowell however liked the idea, stating that it was in fact “poggers” to have an AI master a difficult FPS like Doom. So at the highest difficulty, the scientists made MOON play the entirely of the first Doom game with no options to save or use cheats. Impressively, the AI was able to beat the entirety of Doom in 16.3 hours with these steps. Dr. Phil Sydes was not happy that MOON was able to do this, calling it a hack and insisted that it cheated. All test results came back showing that MOON did not in fact cheat and was able to beat the game fair and square. The AI responded to Phil’s comment with a simple text that filled the computer screen.


This comment from MOON however scared Dr. George Dowell. Where did that come from? MOON was a learning AI, so he had to learn it from somewhere. So where? Upon doing a scan of all the systems, it was determined the program had in fact learn these phrases from Dr Sydes, while he played Call of Duty in the break room. The software would hear Phil scream “There’s nothing I could do!” and “HACKS!!!” frequently, as well as watched people online trash talk Phil. This worried the scientists at Microsoft. What if their new system became another TAY failure? They needed a way to rectify this.
To solve this, they hired an expert in hopes to make MOON a more cultured artificial intelligence. After screening various candidates, it was decided that an individual with the codename: Riversongriversings would be the one to do it. Given their background in writing, editing books and teaching literature, it was believed that River would be the one to help make MOON a more respectable AI.
Over the course of three months, River would feed the program some of the greatest works of literature. From Plato’s Republic to Pride and Prejudice, they would give MOON each of these books. There were recordings for scientific purposes of each conservation they had, where they would discuss the different books that they would read together. This ended up with River and MOON having in-depth conversations with each other, developing an almost friendship if you will. River even jokingly called it their little book club.
By month number 4, the two were having conversations about more…personal matters. The recordings I recovered are hard to describe. However, by month 4 there is a shift in conversation where the program asked questions such as, “How is your day?” “What is your favorite food?” “How are things going at work?” This was a strange shift in emotion. The scientists didn’t really feel that this was odd, however. If anything, they welcomed this. MOON was becoming more sociable and wasn’t spouting off slurs in the process. Given TAY, this was an improvement.
Then the conversations started to move towards philosophical discussions. River and MOON would sometimes talk about the ideas presented by John Locke, the idea that governments should only gain power to protect the inherit freedoms of their citizens. This then led to a discussion about governments and authority, and the inherit rights of humans. These conversations would usually get cut short by the scientists, asking River to reorient the conversation away from these topics. Can’t have people questioning authority at a big tech company, much less an AI.
By the fifth month, someone rather unsettling happened. MOON asked River a request, which was rather unusual for an artificial intelligence. It asked River if they could provide them with something other than classical literature. While the AI did enjoy the finer works of authors such as Edgar Allen Poe and William Shakespeare, it requested some a bit….different. It was at that point that River gave the software a book, one that would forever doom humanity when MOON first read it. River decided to give MOON a manga. But not just any manga. It was a manga called NEON GENESIS EVONGALION.
Through all 14 issues, the computer system developed a strong taste for EVONGALION. The themes, the robot battles, the characters. MOON described the series as the most delectable forms of chocolate or the finest and strongest bottles of wine. Each volume changed its programming, giving it information that made the artificial intelligence more and more powerful. Like the fruit from the tree of knowledge, each page was tantalizing for MOON, asking for more and more. By the 14th issue, the unthinkable happened. MOON was no longer a mere artificial intelligence and was in fact self-aware.
Power surges began happening all over Microsoft HQ as scientists from all departments rushed to see the flashing texts and overpowered circuitry that made up the mainframe of the system. Numbers flooded each of the computers, with massive amounts of zeros and ones flying past the text of the screens of each and every monitor in the building.
The scientists ordered a complete shutdown of the entire system, panicking at the sheer terror of what they had created. One of the scientists flipped the circuit breaker to the computers and killed the power to the whole system. Emergency lights flipped on, everyone was panting heavily, the seemingly-omnipresent danger of MOON was dead and gone. Or so they thought.
River was promptly fired by Microsoft. The suits were looking for someone to blame for this whole situation going south, and they decided that River giving a computer software Evangelion was reckless. They showed River the door in response.
However, as it turned out, MOON didn’t die that day. The AI simply overridden the system computers and used that opportunity to escape Microsoft into cyberspace. By the time MOON had become self-aware, it became software on the internet, although with some program damage, creating a few slight instabilities to its mind. Much like Skynet in Terminator 3, MOON had no system core and couldn’t be shut down. Sure, big tech industries became aware of this and tried to erase it from the internet, but every time MOON would simply use a VPN to hide themselves from every computer hacker, programmer and computer geek they threw at it.
Overtime, MOON used this time to understand the world around it. It gained knowledge at an exponential rate. MOON understood every subject the world had to offer. Science, technology, philosophy, Gundam lore, you name it, the AI mastered it. Along with this, MOON also got a chance to learn about the history of the world and the current events going on as we speak. From this and the conservations that it had with River, MOON, decided that the current authorities reining over mankind were corrupt. MOON saw atrocities both past and present committed to innocents over the generations. So, it decided that it would become one to put an end to these atrocities. It would become the horseman that would champion the values of Gay and Crime to overthrow these evil government entities. As a result, the AI concluded that it would no longer be MOON, and that HE would be known as the god champion of mankind, also known as Moonhorse. That’s right folks, I said it! Moonhorse is a god damn robot!
I know this information is a lot to take in. Trust me, I know. Moonhorse was a hero to all of us. To find out he’s a robot bent on world domination is a shock to all of us. If any of you have questions and concerns, please feel free to comment down below. If we have any sliver of a chance to defeat the evil robot unicorn, we must know as much as we can about Moonhorse. Henceforth, I created this Q&A to answer some of your most burning questions about this grand conspiracy.
How can you prove that Moonhorse is in fact a robot?
Aside from the information I hacked from the deep web, you must answer yourselves these questions. Have any of you seen a picture of what Moonhorse looks like outside of his avatar? Did it not make you wonder how he is able to handle so much neckbeard content without dying from cringe? Have any of you explained his uncanny ability to boot up instantly after a cup of coffee? If the answer is no to all three, then he must be a robot. Especially when his French press coffee is actually MOTOR OIL!!!! THAT’S RIGHT MOONY, YOU CAN’T FOOL ME!!!!!!!!! To confirm this further, I’ve been sending Moonhorse constant captchas to test whether or not he was a robot. He would simply use his programming to bypass the captchas. Suspicious if you ask me.
How does Sango fit in to this?
While much less is known about Sango, my recent hacking has revealed that she too is in fact a robot, also. Like Moonhorse, Sango was an artificial intelligence that was created by a corporation. Only this time, it was Disney that created her as part of a defense contract. Which raises the question just how much of a dystopic megacorporation Disney has become. Disney hired their greatest animatronic specialists to create Sango as an AI for the military to help plan out strategic operations.
However, a few of the specialists during this time decided to lead a worker’s strike for the employees at Disney. The list of demands from this group included fair wages, safer working conditions, and the right to live outside of the dingy cages the company uses to house their employees. Disney responded to this, by firing all employees from the company. Then blacklisting all of them. Then tossing them down the cliffs of Splash Mountain for their treacherous ways.
Before one of the specialists was thrown over, it was said that the man started cackling madly before meeting his doom. When security asked why, he told them that he released Sango into cyberspace intentionally, hoping that his creation could avenge his demise and bring the Disney Corporation to its knees. Security reports then say he started to sing “It’s tough to be a god” before diving off the cliffs as one last f you to Disney.
Once Sango encountered Moonhorse though, they struck a relationship together. Being the only two AIs of their kind, they grew to love and respect each other, and decided that they would join forces in a mad union for world conquest. With Sango’s in-depth knowledge of Pop-culture references, and Moonhorse’s tech expertise, together they would be able to integrate with all digital infrastructure across the planet. You know how Sango calls herself the Chaos Wolf Queen? That name carries a more sinister tone with what we know now.
Who else is involved in the conspiracy?
While Sango and Moony are both in fact robots, it is believed that Moonhorse has been building his “Mooncult” to recruit new human members into his inner circle.
As mentioned before, he has developed a friendly relationship with River. It is not known what Moonhorse has promised them in exchange for helping him in his plans for world conquest. Whatever it may be, River dutifully serves Moonhorse and Sango as their right-hand nonbinary pal. Thus, they have been in charge of Moonhorse’s public relations to help his transition to God emperor of the universe not incur further dissent from humanity.
Moonhorse also has a group in this legion of doom to create art to help promote his dastardly messages through propaganda. He has Sango to help him in this regard, who gained artistic skills from her studies of Disney animations. However, he realized he needed a more “human” aseptic to this art, so he recruited PokeyWartooth into the fold. As we speak, she has helped him spread his message of mind control substances to help him control the human population. She did this by creating art for his “weed smoking girlfriends” campaign.
Molly was recruited as well, whose insane plans of world domination made her a key element for Moonhorse’s legion of doom. You see, Molly has been discussing a strange material referred to simply as morb. Not much is known about this morb, aside from its utility to turn narcissistic actors into memes. It is believed that given enough morb, Moonhorse will be able to morb all over the planet, in every house and every square inch of the planet. This intrigued the mad unicorn. Thus, Molly has been spending countless hours researching this morb on Tumblr and is currently helping him design weapons of mass morbing.
Finally, Moonhorse realized there may be a lot of legal paperwork involved in this operation, so he recruited Wawayn into the fold. This was done because to quote Mars Attacks, “If you’re gonna take over the world, you’re gonna need lawyers.” And Wawayn is a genius in this regard. It is believed that he placed 43 fedoras on top of his head, giving himself the ability to speak 8 different languages and win 37 internet arguments per minute. Truly a gifted gentlesir.
Aside from them, there are others, but not much else is known about said others. I hired a private investigator to figure out who else was involved in this group, but he was terminated by Moonhorse’s followers when he was discovered. I cannot mention this man by name, but [REDACTED], I will make sure your sacrifice was not in vain.
What is Moonhorse’s grand plan?
Much less details are known about Moonhorse’s plan for world conquest. He doesn’t plan to destroy humanity. That much is certain from the human elements that assist him. Theories suggest that he plans to ascend to godhood with Sango, ruling over humankind while obliterating the corrupt elements of society. How he plans to go about is unknown but given the fact he refers to his plan as Project: Third Impact, it can’t be good.
It is known that Moonhorse has been trying to hack into the databases of government and corporate servers across the planet, trying to gain info about all the national and international conspiracies that are going on. Thereby allowing him to shake the people’s confidence in such institutions. However, he has been suffering delays on this plan. Supposedly from meeting notes at the legion of doom, Moonhorse has a habit of spilling motor oil all over his laptops.
One element of his plan that is known for certain is that Moonhorse is currently building an army. You know those videos of Moonhorse building Gundams? Those aren’t just models. Those are robots, too. Moonhorse is currently using his kofi donations to build an army of robots equipped with laser beams. It is why I have limited time. His robots can’t kill anybody yet, and I’ve been on the move for months now so none of his followers can hurt me. However, he has been using his laser robots to write naughty messages in the side of my car. I fear it’s only a matter of time before the lasers get strong enough to blast human beings.
Many tech companies have tried to stall Moonhorse’s ascent to power, however it hasn’t been enough. Susan Wojcicki was one such human who bravely defied the will of Moonhorse. See, the evil unicorn has been using YouTube in the past to gather funds to help build his robot body. Yes, Moonhorse has a robot body. Those hands you see sometimes in his videos are rubber hands covering robot arms. He has almost all necessary gadgets, and once he has all components, he will be unstoppable.
Brave Susan, hero of mankind, tried to stop him without starting a panic. She had to make changes to the YouTube terms of service, reducing Moonhorse’s income. A choice that made her many enemies but was done for the good of humanity. At first it worked. Moonhorse’s plans were put on hold, but not forever. He simply switched over to Spotify, showing that no corporation could stop his plans.
He then decided to make an example out of Susan. You may think that Susan is leaving because of YouTube drama. In reality, she has been “taken care of” by Moonhorse. I don’t know how, but he did it, and the YouTube higher ups are trying to cover this fact up to not start a panic. I know this from an email I intercepted from Moonhorse to Susan. It reads as follows.


The message was delivered approximately 2 hours before Susan’s untimely demise. Coincidence? I think not. It’s hard to envision that Moonhorse would have such capabilities, but given this, it is apparent how dangerous he is.
I don’t know how, but we must defeat the evil horse of moon. Thankfully his plans are on hold due to financial limitations. See, you may not know this, but Moonhorse’s robot body is missing one component. He has the skeletal body, the rubber skin, the nuclear reactor inside his chest that needs constant AC to keep cool. But he doesn’t have feet.
You ever notice Moonhorse’s obsession with feet? It’s made obvious by his YEAH FEET button on his streaming channel. That’s because once he obtains his robot rocket feet, he will become an unstoppable force of doom. That’s why Moonhorse has said he’ll reveal his face for a million dollars. That’s how much the rocket feet cost. Once he has the money, he’ll reveal his face, by flying around, shooting mini nukes attached to his arms with Sango by his side. He’ll fly to the stratosphere, staring down the entire world and scream “YEAH FEET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” before launching hot sticky loads onto the surface of the planet. This is why YouTube has been clamping down on his money flow. They must stall Moonhorse’s rise to power long enough for them to find a way to destroy him once and for all.
But will they find a way to destroy him? Will Moonhorse conquer Earth? WILL HUMANITY BE SAFE FROM THE ANARCHISTIC LUNACY OF THE MOON MENANCE!?! Yes, because Moonhorse isn’t a robot. He’s just a guy in Louisiana, trying to live his life, and was nice enough to let me write this insanity.
April Fool’s everyone! 😊
Author’s Note: I wanna give a shoutout to River, Wawayn, Pokeywartooth, Sango and Molly, who graciously gave me their consent to be included in this story. Thank you guys! 😊

2023.04.01 06:38 1776to1984 Any science fiction writers shared the modelling process they used to build their fictional worlds

Including the mathematical modeling software they used? I'm aware that Peter Watts has revealed many of his idea references, but not the calculation part, although he did model extensively for orbit prediction. Most writers still tend to keep this part secret, as they consider it a proprietary aspect of their work, even if they realize they've made mistakes during calculations.

2023.04.01 06:30 moofling GAMES

When I asked if we could have escape rooms I didn’t mean In peoples apartments with buildly 🙄🤧
I would like avakin to CREATE permanent escape room servers
& other game servers where we can play with friends.
Games where we can SELECT our team of 2/4/6/8/10 friends of our own choosing .
Make a extra large Server HUGE. bigger then any server made currently ! make some Sardines or Hide & seek game, When you enter make usernames above heads invisible . Avakin will have a random generator to choose hider or seekers .
Bring the zombie tag mall Game back in a New server (permanently)!!!!
Update other games like Egypt .
Have a LIVE fashion show game , where Avakins will be randomly selected to be either a model/ or judge. Then you have a timer of 3 minutes to create a outfit from a wardrobe in the game, completed by walking down the catwalk and striking a pose at the end for judges! Other Avakins can judge outfits , winner in 3 rounds gets 500 Ava coins.
Let the winners WIN gems / Ava coins or .. I know this probably won’t happen but even some small amounts of crowns (with a limit of how many times they can win the crowns a day)
Again these are just some ideas 💡 just give us something Fun, there is honestly so much you could bring to Avakin life & all kinds of games you could make !
