Roko puts self on ice floe, saving us the trouble
  • Look up also extremely influential architect and noted fascist Le Corbusier.

    The building also incorporates shops including an architectural bookshop, a rooftop gallery, educational facilities, a hotel that is open to the public, and a restaurant, "Le Ventre de l'Architecte" ("The Belly of the Architect").

    It was a huge trend after the war for a variety of economic and ideological reasons.

  • Look, I already knew Roko was a moron but this is outrageous.

  • Seeing the practice of art as a means to produce content instead of an end in itself is the most depressing shit ever. People make art because they enjoy the process!

  • If this wasn't Scott Adams I'd have assumed this was fetish content. Now I don't know what to think.

  • I really can't imagine reading a book by someone whose vision of the future is "men will be taller and have more muscles, women will stay the same height but they'll all be conventionally attractive and have voluntary control of their uterus".

  • It's like these people are enforcing a facade of polite tone and measuredness as a way to launder literal intellectual terrorism! Dang!

  • He is transparently trying very very hard to start a gamergate and it's pathetic.

  • The funny thing is: it would be either way!

  • Right! You'd think they'd want to actually try to look like rationalists, put the petty bigotry aside and bask in the race-realist camaraderie. But no, being a gay truly is beyond the pale.

  • lol these people are so much more vicious than people here holy shit. i can't even discern what their problem is. babe please stop hanging out with fascists.

  • I'n not joking when I say he's probably using an LLM to write this junk. It reads like it, and he's already perfectly comfortable with illustrating his diatribes with embarrassing midjourney slop.

  • Back in 1995, when I was born, Gerard was my age

  • Quillette, Claire Lehmann’s longform magazine focused on science and cultural critique and the home of, among other things, the best-researched article I know of on gender differences in chess

  • Cool, it's like any one of the thousands of rightoid whines about wikipedia and then it somehow devolves into even more boring nonsense which I'm not going to read especially since most of it was probably written by an LLM.

  • It's so cute (euphemism for concerning) how their image of the average trans woman is a white computer science rationalist poster and not, like, a South American sex worker or something.

    Why didn't evolution give females big heads if it would make them all geniuses? Another anecdote. My sister has a big head. She was valedictorian in high school I think. She hit her head one day in middle school during gym class by running into a wall. She also fell off a bike and hit her head in high school. I have never hit my head and I think the main reason is that my arms are strong enough to catch myself. So maybe the big headed women would-be-ancestors fell and hit their heads.[1]

    Classics of Reason

  • Actual comedians try to use LLM in a writing room. Result: “cruise ship comedy material from the 1950s, but a bit less racist”
  • Spam machines are only ever funny or interesting by accident. The more they smooth out the wrinkles the more creatively useless they become. The tension is sort of fascinating.

    Like I've always been interested in generative poetry and other manglings of text, and ChatGPT's so fucking dull compared to putting a sentence through babelfish a few times.
