    https://theconversation.com/the-galactica-ai-model-was-trained-on-scientific-knowledge-but-it-spat-out-alarmingly-plausible-nonsense-195445 "Galactica" AI trained to (re)produce scientific language goes horribly wrong when exposed to the general public. An image in the article shows a wikipedia style article "the benefits of eating ground glass" as well as the obligatory antisemitism reference....

    "Greedy politicians want you to vote yes so they can live off your money forever!" That's about to start in Aotearoa I reckon. Public funding for political parties has been suggested again, and the corrupt politicians don't like the matching...

    I'm surprised no-one has mentioned the appropriately named Mitsubishi Wanker... https://www.spanishdict.com/translate/pajero...

    But do you mean literally "[REDACTED]", or do you mean some word that you're unwilling to write on this blog? Because [REDACTED] would be funny in its own way. Like the boat I saw with letting right round its circumference...

    I was going to chime in, but I'll leave it to the professionals :) What I did want to say is that it depends entirely on why a given (ex) politicians writes. If they're just writing for money then the...

    It is amusing that US citizens have to pay US income tax no matter where they live, but they can't vote unless they live there....

    Well, given the ... 'negotiable affections' of the NSW Police I'm told it doesn't take a lot of work to turn a raw number plate into an address of record. "there are strong penalties for doing this, and we're proud...

    It seems to come down to an "are you still interested" test. Australia uses an "intention of the voter" test (to return within six years), Aotearoa has a "been in the country since the last election" test. https://aec.gov.au/overseas/voting.htm and https://www.aec.gov.au/overseas/enrolment.htm...

    Allowing simple construction of a device that will provide the VIN of any self-driving car in range… I have a device on the front of my house that provides the registration plate and a photo of almost every car that...

    You're saying I should have no say in a) how taxes are spent the rest of my life, and b) the effects on my family, my children, and my grandkids. Why do your (grand)children get no say in any of...

    he did expend a lot of ammunition killing animals injured from collisions with autos.. My ex-SIL in the UK has a pistol for this reason. She works for the RSPCA and it's part of her official equipment. It's literally big...

    deer killed on the road going to the observatory would be reported to the tribal police for recovery and butchering. No sense in letting good venison go to waste. Alaska has an official roadkill programme, and it may still be...

    The "age of maturity" seems to be at the core of "kids shouldn't be allowed to vote". But sure, if you want to focus on a different arbitrary age criteria go for it. I was responding to your 16 is...

    I'm sorry, I mis-thunk. You're right. I still disagree with the general proposition that "getting from A to B is all that matters". I suspect icehawk does too, but that's not what he said....

    "capacity" is where my "DGAF as long as everyone gets tested" comes from. I still love the media peeps who ran round the streets of Australia asking people questions from the citizenship test. Many self-proclaimed citizens didn't know the answers....

    But there's a whole range of "legally important ages", from 'old enough to pay tax' (zero, or possibly pre-born persons can also), 'old enough to be a parent (legally zero in the USA and some other places, but in practice...

    Those are giant? Scary thought. We have them in Australia too, but people don't have a common name for them other "bird what lives in swamps" sometimes with "it's blue" or "it's purple" added. {eyeroll}. They're smaller than an ibis...

    the fourth estate lies in ruins Worth noting that Murdoch has lost two elections in Australia in the last year. Apparently no amount of pushing will get people to vote against their own interests if those are sufficiently obvious. Well,...

    Pollution, probably. Electric cars especially in urban areas emit virtually no NO2 or particulates Exactly. Although they do emit particulates because they have tyres, they emit much less because they don't have exhaust. The UK has seen some court cases...

    "car navigating city streets...it’s beyond the capabilities of modern AI." and I'm simply using disproof by example I don't think that proposition is being advanced by anyone. We can all see cars navigating streets, we're arguing about whether they can...

    possible to challenge any existing law on a scientific or factual basis That's fine for "we deem the value of pi to be three" where there's a clear scientific consensus not just of the wrongness, but of to consequences. For...

    Roos have a counter-intuitive dodge strategy... they assume the predator is going to jink when they do, so they fake a step one way they dodge the other way. Since cars don't zig with them, the zag leaves them right...

    a demonstrated comprehension of how the world works Why are your examples all of people you think demonstrate an incomprehension? Using the negative standard you'd end up with very young voters since people would be increasingly likely to lose the...

    you have no say in the choice of government while still paying tax!?! Where do you live that the disenfranchised don't pay tax? I'm not aware of any country or even local government that says people below the minimum voting...

    current coverage makes me afraid that it may it be a publicity ploy by the current PM I think it continues her tradition of proposing nice things then wringing her hands when she can't possibly deliver them, Meanwhile everyone stops...

    Isn't that common? My family tree in that area goes distinctive name, distinctive name, Lewis. Bang, suddenly we can buy the book and see the history back a whole long way. My family challenges are the British orphan processing system...
