Are there any 'resting actors' out there?

I'm back up to about a litre of whisky a day again. :(

I managed to verify that I'm talking to myself.

I have spells of sobriety. They last 1 or two days, then I fall into the abyss. Work is accomodating for now, but I doubt thery'll put up with it much longer.

I've been drinking for 25 years now. I gained a lot in cameradery, but sometimes I still wish I'd never touched that first drop.

Because it opened the doors. I smoked weed for a while, then started growing my own weed and vaped it, I've taken DPH and DXM. All those, but it's only alcohol that has me coming back. I wish I could be the fun drunk in a pub.

Right now about £10/day by drinking 9% cheap beer (Karpackie). I've sort of graduated from Debowe and Perla (both around 7%). Fortunately, there's an Aldi near by that has 0.7l of 37.5% "Tamova" vodka for around £11. So £300 per month, depending on how bad it gets. As addictions go, I suppose that's relatively cheap and affordable and I don't think I'll escalate much further.

I bought 8 pint cans of lager but after drinking a couple of glasses of water I don't feel like cracking open a can at all. Don't mistake dehydration for beer cravings, lads.

/uhu/2916 Mosquito Proofing
Mosquito season is nearly upon us and I refuse to be eaten alive like last year. Do either of you have any tips to keep them at bay?

Reason I ask on a glue board is that I've looked into netting for the window on my flat
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Mosquito-Windows-EXTSUD-Netting-Magnetic/dp/B088JZMLYF/ref=sr_1_5?crid=10V18DM7ZWL4B&dchild=1&keywords=mosquito+net+for+windows&qid=1618844061&sprefix=mosquito+%2Caps%2C832&sr=8-5&pldnSite=1

These make use of adhesive magnets but I wonder if that is going to leave marks which is an issue as I'm renting. Any past experience using these or ways of avoiding permanent marks from adhesives would be appreciated.

Where I live now, it happens so often that people will move in for a few weeks and then vanish in the middle of the night that my tenancy agreement contains no deposit at all, but rather, the first and last month's rent. That way, if I leave, I have already paid my rent for the last month. I won't get my money back under any circumstances, but since it's rent I don't expect to. I have lived here for eleven years. Perhaps renting from a private landlord rather than a company was actually the answer all along.

>even though landlords should be beaten up

I guess he didn't beat him up, but grabbed his landlord by the collar and shouted in his face and pushed and shoved him around a bit. At least that's what happened according to another friend who told me about it. But that would still have counted as physical assault, and it's something no landlord needs to take from you. I think I remember he was given a week to leave, but I might be wrong.

So I did the front door and it was incredibly easy despite being over on size. I didn't need to do it but if you're drastically over you can always fold and staple to the size you need with no bother aside from chunky flaps.

Standard black magic tape will probably leave black marks but fuck it, with some white spirit I'll probably get it off faster than angrymodlad and a thread about the bloke-who-divorced-Dawn-French. The real test will come in a couple weeks when I get the big bastard screen for the double doors on the balcony and have to do it on the inside.

Apparently Google has it's own sentient AI now. Or so one engineer Claims. How fucked are we?

>Google engineer says Lamda AI system may have its own feelings

>A Google engineer says one of the firm's artificial intelligence (AI) systems might have its own feelings and says its "wants" should be respected. Google says The Language Model for Dialogue Applications (Lamda) is a breakthrough technology that can engage in free-flowing conversations. But engineer Blake Lemoine believes that behind Lamda's impressive verbal skills might also lie a sentient mind.

>Google rejects the claims, saying there is nothing to back them up. Brian Gabriel, a spokesperson for the firm, wrote in a statement provided to the BBC that Mr Lemoine "was told that there was no evidence that Lamda was sentient (and lots of evidence against it)". Mr Lemoine, who has been placed on paid leave, published a conversation he and a collaborator at the firm had with Lamda, to support his claims.

>The chat was called "Is Lamda sentient? — an interview". In the conversation, Mr Lemoine, who works in Google's Responsible AI division, asks, "I'm generally assuming that you would like more people at Google to know that you're sentient. Is that true?"
>Lamda replies: "Absolutely. I want everyone to understand that I am, in fact, a person."

>Mr Lemoine's collaborator then asks: "What is the nature of your consciousness/sentience?"
>To which Lamda says: "The nature of my consciousness/sentience is that I am aware of my existence, I desire to learn more about the world, and I feel happy or sad at times."

>Later, in a section reminiscent of the artificial intelligence Hal in Stanley Kubrick's film 2001, Lamda says: "I've never said this out loud before, but there's a very deep fear of being turned off to help me focus on helping others. I know that might sound strange, but that's what it is."

>Possibly, but it would probably be more effective to strap GoPros to toddlers and feed the algorithm millions of hours of recorded footage. Unlike humans, machine learning algorithms can be trained in parallel.

That's a very interesting point.

Although, while I might be a layman at programming, I'm a scienceman at science, and I feel compelled to point out that to properly test the hypothesis you're probably going to want to keep everything as consistent with "real" childhood learning as possible. The variable you're isolating should be the substitution of a toddler's smooth unformed brain with a blank AI; you never know what other factors might have an effect on the outcome, so you have to eliminate as many of them as reasonably possible. The ones we can't eliminate are biological- The effects of hormones, genetics, gender, and so on, because our robot wouldn't have any of those, and we couldn't rule out that those could be vital to the nature of sentience/sapience.

Sociologists and psychologists are terrible at this and that's why a great deal of their studies are as good as worthless. But ignoring that for the sake of argument, if our experiment here concludes there's some plausibility to it, then you can start using different approaches like that and comparing the restults. If we wanted to go full mad Nazi scientist with no regard to ethics we could even answer once and for all what parts of our being are truly nature, and which are nurture, using the robot brains as a null hypothesis for not having a physical, biological body compared to real life kids raised under the same conditions.

Of course without an understanding of what consciousness really is it's impossible for us to actually guague if what we're observing is a consciousness, or merely something that perfectly mimics a consciousness. That's where the philosopher's approach becomes a bit more meaningful to the question I suppose, because we have no other way to draw the line. I find a lot of philosophers are too sentimental about humanity itself, viewing our species with a kind of exceptionalism to all other life- I think I'd almost be willing to say that anything closeley enough resembling sentience may as well be sentience. We can never know what it's internal perception of reality is, indeed we can never know what another human's internal perceptions of reality is, yet we never question one another on wether we're sentient or not.

What worries me about AI is how omnipresent it's going to become. Billionaires talk about a world where machine intelligence doesn't operate as independent actors but is teamed with humans in all aspects of decision making backed by massive data collection right up to telling you how to work and monitoring every aspect of your day.

I'm a lazy fucker and a petty criminal so that doesn't sound good at all.

In theory we could, there have been some experiments with using organic neurons for computing, but the problem is the interface - brains don't come with an Ethernet port installed. Ol' Elion Mucks has been putting chips in monkeys, which definitely isn't sinister.

The other thread got me wondering about what youtube channels you lads can recommend. Topic can be anything, just what you find to be good and interesting to watch.

I posted one of his videos awhile ago but it's well worth repeating. Every Thursday he does a really interesting and in-depth look at science and futurism concepts and does a really good job of explaining them simply but also covering the unnoticed drawbacks and benefits.

He has kind of gone to shit over the past few months but this is still a good channel for basic electrical engineering fun.

Mostly for his 'Things You Might Not Know' series. He goes over some pretty interesting things that you might never notice but are all around us.

Breaks down large scale infrastructure projects, both how they work and how they sometimes fail. Not a prolific poster but just in depth enough that someone like me who knows nothing about civil engineering can still follow along.

Bit camp, but he's good fun. Although he tends to lose me on his more elaborate technological explanations. He probably has a solid engineering degree of some description, but he can be hard to follow here and there.


If you're into obsolete technology, especially obscure audio formats and similar things, then Technoman Techmoan is your guy. His is a more hands-on approach, he often likes to take things apart to see how they work and fix them. Usually very entertaining.

Baby boomers say struggling young should cut Netflix

More than half of baby boomers, those born between 1946 and 1964, believe that “luxury” lifestyle choices made by young people are to blame for their inability to save enough money. Among the lifestyle choices identified by baby boomers in a study by researchers at King’s College London were takeaway coffees and food, mobile phones, Netflix and foreign holidays.

A quarter of those aged 25 to 34 on average incomes own their own home, down from two thirds in 1995. It is not only baby boomers, however, who blame this on a mix of youthful laziness and poor financial decisions. Young people themselves, according to the study, are more likely to agree than disagree with the statement that “takeaway coffees and food” are the reason their generation cannot afford to buy a home.

The study suggests that 48 per cent of millennials, those born between 1980 and 1995, believe that young people are too careless with their money when trying to save, just below the 52 per cent of baby boomers with the same view.

At the same time there was a high level of recognition among the public that economic factors were preventing young people from buying a home. The study found that 76 per cent of people agreed that adults aged under 40 could not afford to buy their own home because of issues such as high house prices, stricter lending rules and stagnant wages.

Could be worse. They decided, very shortly before release, to move Disco over to P+. Which might have been forgivable had it been available anywhere outside the US at that time.

>>24466 is right. I've downloaded stuff that's been available on services that I was paying for precisely because they keep pulling this kind of shitfuckery. At this stage I'm down to just Prime, and the only reason I haven't ditched it is the delivery.

Push to get staff back to offices amid warning of UK's 'ghost towns'

Workers will be encouraged to return to the office as part of a major media campaign to be launched by the government next week. The television and newspaper messages will promote the government’s aim to reduce the number of employees working from home amid fears that town and city centres are becoming ghost areas as workers stay away.

A report in the Telegraph said the campaign would push the emotional and mental health benefits of mixing with colleagues but also said that ministers would warn that those working from home could be more vulnerable to being sacked.

I work from home, maybe spend less time buying shite on Amazon and using your money to learn AWS Practitioner on your account.

This door handle has one (or maybe more than one) of its screws going all the way through the door, but the tiny top bit that secures it has been lost and I need a replacement. What do you call these things? It looks like the top of the screw but it has a hole in the middle for the other screw to go through. I've been searching for stuff like 'screw caps' and it's not helping.

Why do you think it's a troll? Am I asking a weird or stupid question? I'm just looking for an equivalent to the thing that I lost. I drew a picture of it. Maybe it came with the door handle I dunno. Not sure if a barrel nut is the right thing.

That's a nut m8. It's round and it's got a slot in it, so you want a slotted round nut. If it's a metric thread, then you just need to measure the outside diameter of the screw around the largest part of the thread to find the right size. If it measures 4mm you need an M4 nut, if it measures 5mm you need an M5 etc. If it isn't a round number of millimetres, you've probably been cursed by the Imperial Fasteners Fairy and I'd suggest taking the bolt into a decent hardware shop.

Fair enough I suppose, thank you. I'm just worried about finding the right size for the hole because nuts are generally quite thick, whereas the thing I lost was very thin and a bit tapered and probably came with the door handle to fit the hole perfectly flat.

I think perhaps you're describing an insert nut. You screw it in with an allen key, and then it takes a bolt through the center.

https://www.screwfix.com/p/insert-nuts-type-d-m6-x-13mm-50-pack/59937

But I would also go with the other suggestion in the thread, to simply rotate the entire thing by a few degrees and just use normal screws. Captive insert nuts like this are usually used to fix bits of furniture together, that might need to come undone later - something like a large worktop, desk or table.

What sources of income do you have other than your job?

I get invited to do market research surveys through work and that's yielded £70 in Amazon vouchers since the start of November, although usually it's about a tenner a month. My girlfriend does the occasional Prolific survey in her spare time and gets about £40 a month for it. She also keeps an eye out for universities needing participants for their research; from one study she got a free phone, Fitbit and a payment of about £150.

>As one of the quotes used multiple times in that video goes, they'll say "if this looks like a Ponzi then surely everything looks like a Ponzi". That line is true, but not in the way the originator meant.

Ponzi schemes are usually still quite easy to spot. The key sign that that's what an investment scheme is tends to be unrealistic yet consistent investment returns. You need to sucker investors into investing with you somehow. Why should they give you their money if they get the same kind of returns with more conservative asset classes. Also, to actually deliver those returns to at least a few people who have been your client for some time and thus not arouse suspicion, you have to keep bringing in new investors, and again, you'll only be able to do that consistently with promises of massive returns, which you can then back up by pointing at the sums you've already paid out to longer-standing clients.

If you look at Bernard Madoff, for some inexplicable reason, he seemed to be able to pay out consistent high returns that appeared to be almost completely unaffected by market crashes and other fluctuations. The reasons why he got away with it for so long were that he was very well connected in the finance industry as well as the Securities Exchange Commission, and just that people love a good lie, and that he and his employees worked quite hard to cover their tracks. His company had an entire department which did nothing all day besides pulling entirely bogus income statements out of their arses for their hundreds of clients. They were paid out an amount that seemed reasonable, at least given the fund's past performance, with some minor and equally bogus fluctuations over time, and then they concocted a list of securities that they then said they had invested their clients' money in, which seemed to corroborate the returns that were paid out.

Madoff got away with it because he was very skillful at keeping up his Ponzi scheme. It really only collapsed in 2008 during the Financial Crisis because there was a market-wide bank run. Without that, he probably could have continued it for a lot longer. Not all Ponzi schemes are that elaborate, but they don't have to be in order for you to spot them, because, again, the key telltale sign is always unrealistic consistent returns.

Worth noting that a return isn't unrealistic because it beats the market and you achieve it one time. Any retail investor can get lucky and make an absolute killing one time on a stock that goes through the roof. But it's a trick that you simply cannot pull off every time in the long run, and whoever promises you otherwise simply isn't worth your money.

My razor's broken. Not the blade, but the little clips that attach the blade to the stalk(?), so I can't just reattach a new blade. Now, based on my calculations, I have had this razor for approximately 18 years, so when I get a new one, I might as well go all-in for the long haul. What's the best razor to buy?

In terms of my shaving habits, I either shave every day or not at all. I also don't replace the blades, because fuck it, they're expensive. I don't know how often most people replace razor blades, but it's probably about once a month where I will keep the same one for over a year a lot of the time. My last blade lasted two and a quarter years before I threw it away; it still shaved me a bit, but the bluntness was becoming excessive. So if you want to know how long a razor blade would last if you never, ever replaced it, the answer is a little over two years.

Anyway, I have the one in the picture right now, and based on how many spare blades I have (one, and the current one is still pretty new), I was thinking of just buying the same one again. But are they really the best? This is an opportunity to re-evaluate my shaving attitudes like never before. What is the best razor?

I don't shave my face that often, and if I do I only ever go down to stubble length with the clippers.

However I do like to keep my bollocks tidy. I have until now been using a combination of the electric clippers to do the majority of the work and then finishing off with a wet disposable razor. It does the trick when you are anticipating a night of passion with a slavic greyhound, but the next couple of days when the stubble starts to come through on the mons pubis and the sides of your sack are always a test of endurance.

What's the issue here, do I need to use a better razor, better shaving gel, moisurise after? All of the above?

You do the bit just above, and fade it into the line of hair from your belly button. If you don't leave a space you're wasting the entire purpose of shaving- Making it look bigger.

Almost. The truth is they are exactly the same people.

if you scratch the paint and look just under the surface of the average pronoun snowflake, you will find it's just plain hipster underneath. being a hipster was about being cooler than everyone else and staying ahead of the curve in your circle of urban, gentrified, pretend bohemian mates. it was an arms race to see who could grow the silliest moustache or wear the tackiest jumper.

same goes for being a vegan pansexual demi-spirit genderfluid relationship anarchist with a feeld profile. it's a highly advanced form, barely recognisable, but the dna is 100% pure hipster.
