    Oh, Gavin.. There's a show made by FX called  Taboo - which based of a real story, explains a bit about the East India Company - How it got so 'big' and the fucked up shit it did to get so big, and then how it may have dissolved, but no spoilers. It was a good show, created by Tom Hardy. And you should wear at least 1 of Barb's clothing line

    Barbara being put on the spot... does not fucking disappoint - I have legitimately died since hearing about the teddybear. 

    Quickly upload my consciousness to the net... Actually on that note, a question to broad Scott's scheme - Shouldn't the Turing Test be broadened for the A.I's to ' perform 'emotionally as well as intelligently - So how can a ' copy ' experience the weight of all emotions with the experiences you've had?

    Gavin finally making the real points.  We are trying to go to mars because it has an atmosphere.  Also there is evidence that suggests that it was earth like at a point which means that there is most likely actual potential for human life.  Whereas on the moon, there is no evidence that it would be useful.

    The issue of mapping someones mind to pass the Turing test is less asking a question and getting answers and being able to map a person mind. How they store, access and assossiate things. Like a question you'd need to map how they come to that answer, how they take it in a question and handle it and then what they access and eventually get to that answer. Mapping a mind isn't a A to B system. That kind of inteligence mapping isn't a conducive means to be an accurate measure of intelligence and is more the kind of learning as like Google, Facebook and most systems do. Things that some people think that there's an intelligent end to it, but is fundimentally simple and generally just association based on Region, History, Bookmarks and your trackable habits.


    A proper system of mapping someones mind would need to create the exact systems of having and storing information. Then how it manages things and comes to an answer or response. The fundimental issue is when you manage this to the degree you would need to. In order to have an actual copy of yourself. That instant that's no longer you and an instance of you that will from that point on take in information and come out with different anwsers. To a degree it's no longer you in the instant it's no longer sharing that individual experiance and is now an entity to itself.

      Going off that, I believe that there is another fundamental problem in trying to recreate a dynamic entity which is defined by its retainal and knowledge of its own past dynamicisms, that being the crux of how to verify the accuracy of the recreation without changing the entity in some way due to the dynamism it will display when being verified. Furthermore how would the entity verify and define its own existence knowing there exists a possibility of loss or fabrication of its own retained data and processes. in other words Lacan's "the mirrored stage" and the ship of Theseus paradox make defining identity and individuality exceedingly difficult to do if not impossible objectively.

    the issue with translating a brain into programming based on questions is the way neural networks learn.  repetition makes things deeper, and questions are relatively unreliable in that your answers can only be helpful based on the clarity of the answers, which also becomes a factor.  It's impossible to ask enough questions in a lifetime

      They do it for the same reason sponsors ask them to read ads.  Not everyone may know about the product and more importantly... it gets you thinking about it.  The more you think about something, the more likely you buy something... its why advertisements exist in the first place.  A better question to ask is probably why they don't advertise the RT store more often.

      Someone can come across this video on YouTube or watches RT content without much knowledge of the company. If they see that there is merch and like the content enough, they might go to the store to get some merch for themselves. Not much of an important message for die hard fans who already know about the store. Also, they sometimes do ad reads about their store to let people know about a certain sale.

    K, only comment I'm gonna make on this topic cuz it's pissing me the fuck off. It does NOT take 40 hours to unlock one fucking hero. I have been playing for about 30, never payed real money for anything, and have all but one hero. And the ONLY reason I don't have that one hero is because I don't care to unlock it because I know I don't like the powers it has based on arcade testing. So please, everyone fuck off with the 40 hours for one hero bs, it's a horrible misconception based on OLD statistics. They UPDATED the game for crying out loud, it's mostly fixed. That is all.

      It's already been confirmed that paid lootcrates with star cards and other in-game bonuses will not be returning. Sure, crystals and paid lootcrates will be returning, you are correct. But, like I said, it's been confirmed it will no longer be P2W. It's most likely just gonna be cosmetics like a LOT of other games. And so what that they changed it after the uproar, the uproar fixed it, didn't it? I'm not saying the complaints were worthless and shouldn't have happened, but it's no longer P2W, and the progression system is getting a major overhaul to make it easier to rank up and earn credits. So everyone who still complains about the CURRENT build of the game being P2W and a shitty game for it, is completely wrong. How about you try PLAYING the game, see how good of a game DICE made, and blame EA for the shitty business practices in general, not just for SWBF2.

    This is just asking for it, but there are/were several reasons we haven't been back to the moon. Resources for one, the cost to put something up into space, nevermind the moon, is about $10,000/pound, probably higher. That adds up pretty damn quick and you have to keep in mind that the fuel costs goes up for every pound along with every pound of fuel. SpaceX is making it shit tons cheaper by building most of their components internally, rather than outsourcing, bringing the costs down to $2000-$3000/pound. But, I think they still need to bring their production rate up to the demand.


    Another reason we haven't been back is political. We got into the space race because of tiny dick syndrome and paranoia with Soviet Russia (with good reason, mind you). By the time the moon landing happened, much of the USSR's power was waning, along with the fact that Roscosmos lost their top man, Sergei Korolev, and money from the powers that be. Meanwhile, in the States, much of the public slowly lost interest in space and the cost to keep sending men to the moon was too much.


    Technology-wise, we do have the ability to do a moon base, the ISS is proof of that, but many of the advantages we get by being close to the Earth is lost when we move to the moon. The ISS crew gets the highest dosage of radiation than any person on Earth, including nuclear plant workers, assuming nothing goes wrong. But much of the ISS' radiation shielding comes from the Earth's magnetosphere, and the moon isn't close enough to get the full protection. It might get some, but for all intents and purposes, it gets nothing.


    As for why Mars? Well, part of that is public/political interest, the rest is practicality. A Mars base has better radiation shielding than a moon base, both because of distance and a thin atmosphere. It doesn't eliminate it entirely, I think it's still way higher than the ISS, but we can probably cover that with the base's shielding. The main issue for radiation is the travel time in between. Working in martian environment is a more natural transition for us than a lunar one. Gravity is similar enough to keep things familiar and allow us to work with tools without fear of things flying off into space. The atmosphere is thick enough that we could get away with a less bulky suit.


    Why no lunar base to prep before Mars? Again, that comes down to the issues of having a lunar base. Now if you want to an interesting extraterrestrial base, try Venus. Fucking Cloud City, baby. Anyone who knows astronomy is probably thinking, "Wait, what about the insane heat and preassure?" The atmosphere is thick enough that you can, in theory, float a base in the upper atmosphere, while still affording radiation protection. Couple this with the fact that it's cheaper and faster to get to Venus, fucking sign me up.


    I'm sure there's a bunch of other things that need consideration, but those are things that I can think of off the top of my head.

    Imagine what an AI version of Monty could accomplish.

    Gus, Apple's "store" is like any other tech site. It's a presentation site for the product and then you choose to go to the buy section when you've discovered the product and the details you like. It's not as simple as a merch store where there's limited info for each product and you can mass-list it. 

    And if we really want to compare sites, maybe you should fix the search on the RT site because that's been broken forever: e.g it's impossible to find a Let's Play by searching for the game it's in.

    About the smelly bathroom issue. I clean my uncle's business on the weekends and the female bathroom in the front doesn't get used as much so sometimes the main u-bend gets dry so dumping a bit of water down the drain in the floor gets the u-bend wet and the water in the bend prevents the sewer smell from coming out. Could be worth a try and can't hurt.
