The Kei-tora Gardening Contest is an annual event put on by the Japan Federation of Landscape Contractors to see who can build the best-looking garden on the back of a Kei truck. Here are some of the winners from the past 12 years. http://zoenren-osaka.jp/activity.html
And a heads up everyone, I definitely turned this off on my parent’s TV last year but it was BACK this year. Software updates may turn it back on. Sinister.

A fundamental narrative failure of everyone talking about OpenAI as the company that wants to build safe AI is that their literal claim to fame is rushing to ship ChatGPT based on a technology which Google invented but thought was too unsafe to ship.
This is a company focused on shipping generative AI tech as quickly as possible and capturing as many customers as possible before competitors catch up.
They are AI doomers mainly to slow down the industry not themselves.

On this day of thanks and appreciation I wanted to acknowledge that I'm currently on Timucuan land but flying home where I will be on Tongvan land. #nativeland

The annual Thanksgiving tradition has obscured the historical reality of Native American genocide: dispossession from their lands, efforts to destroy their cultures, and the slaughter of their communities.
It is important to remember this past as we celebrate with our families and bear witness to current struggles against genocide and imperialism. Around the world, Indigenous people are continuing to resist and refuse to be erased.

seems to me like there's a notable overlap between the time human beings invented boxes and when cats decided to domesticate themselves
