Why is it there's always a "genie out of the bottle that can't be put back now" for shit things (looking at you AI-for-everything)? The bottle's right there. Grab the genie and shove it back in. The genie is pooing everywhere. What's with this genie-based, learned helplessness?

ADHD manifests differently in everyone, so all perspectives including those from a working class background and ethnic minorities is also valuable. Because experiences will vary across the board, unless you only want to hear about the fun, quirky, ADHD being a super power views

I'm going to start describing things as being "just like 1984" but referring to the time period, not the Orwell novel.

There's a point, around the age of twenty, when you have to choose whether to be like everybody else the rest of your life, or to make a virtue of your peculiarities.

people complain about small talk but by telling everyone you see during summer “fuck it’s hot” you’re affirming your common humanity. our struggle is singular. our burden is shared. we are in this together. it’s really fucken hot

Buzzfeed stock doubling because they announced they're gonna start using GPT is the official start of the bubble
kids today are missing out of the pre-streaming era, where your childhood was at least partially defined by some semi-obscure movie your family just happened to own on tape and you watched several dozen times

Oh, you don't read fiction? How do you expect to be constituted as a bourgeois subject whose deep interiority replaces hereditary rank as a form of class distinction?

The fact Peterson and Pinker and other rah-rah-Enlightenment type thinkers seem to believe that cognitive dissonance is a character flaw instead of the result of having a brain made of meat, while simultaneously being poster children for cognitive dissonance? It’s a lot.

Yup, I couldn't deal with it. Ppl complain about capitalism and stuff all the time, but ironically treat ppl like objects meant to serve their every desire at a certain level. It is a lot.

a lot of people are mad at this but you have to understand that tech biz guys don’t know about real books such as Moby Dick or Don Quixote. they think all books are called Thought For Food: Hack Your Brain’s Diet or The Squint Principle: See Less, Perceive More
Imagine if every Book is converted into an Animated Book and made 10x more engaging. AI will do this. Huge opportunity here to disrupt Kindle and Audible.

anyone that honestly thinks backing up a human brain into a computer will let you live forever has never had to restore a document from 15 years ago in a format that doesn't exit anymore, or even run a Linux app from 3 years ago that hasn't been updated to the latest kernel
