    Have you ever smoked Weed before???

    I think lemon cherry gelato is my new favorite strain. So smooth and tasty, and with my tolerance it gets me to a place most can’t. If it was just on flavor though my top 5 would be 1. Peach cobbler runtz 2. Zerbert (sunset sherbert x zkittlez) 3. Purple Urkel 4. Lemon Cherry Gelato 5. Sour patch kids Not really a fan of orange/citrus flavors. But those candy and cereal milk/marshmellow flavors mixed with gas are my terps of choice.

    Jesus, this is terrible. Rest in peace little one. You'll have another turn of the wheel if you want, but until then enjoy the ocean of life we all return to.

    integrity and justice come first, then civility. Civility without the first two isn't civility at all, but appeasement and weakness.

    Spectator: The sexbot apocalypse

    First of all, I don't want sex robots to be a thing period. I was more joking about making them with boundaries to highlight my real point, which is that dudes need to stop using things like these as a crutch and connect with real women who have their own thoughts and feelings and personal boundaries. Second, I disagree with your simplification of Biology. You won't get the same effect from biology, by using circuitry because each individual neurotransmittor and biological process matters in the emotional cascade. Each one is having connective tension with another that builds and compounds into greater orders of magnitude. If you minus that out, the actual feeling and response will be diluted, because the composition is diluted. Notice, all the links you offered are all about machines analyzing our cues, rather than the process of them feeling it themselves. They can do incredibly context tasks in limited settings, but that wholistic function isn't there. https://www.nbcnews.com/think/opinion/ai-dangerous-why-our-fears-killer-computers-or-sentient-westworld-ncna943111

    Why do guy's limit themselves with talk like this? Why do guys accept dumbing themselves and their standards down and having no or little sexual self-respect or space for sexual nuance? I am a man, and there is a wide range of different types of sex. I'm not so thirsty that any sex is good sex. I am a connoisseur, willing to put in the work for the finest versions of what life has to offer. It's not about stereotypical making love vs sex or comfort/familiarity, it's about the evolution of sexual chemistry that occurs over time. Chemistry can degrade or evolve based on how a pairing relates with each other, which can change the experience of sex dramatically over the course of a relationship. You're still not getting my point. Emotions, memories, sensations, impulse are all organic systems requiring multiple levels of interdependent life to function and react to things. Until robots have a gut with a bacteria population, a reptile brain and higher ordinal systems stacked on top of it governed by the intensity of connective tension, and all the other things needed for emotion, perspective, etc. than I'm not worried about machines gaining agency in that way. If you don't have those systems you don't have impulses. You don't have front-pressure or back-pressure, you don't have conatus or ambition or identity/individuality. How can you feel fear, if you don't have neurotransmitters like dopamine or epinephrine? Sure, you can program a robot to give off the facial expressions and sounds that we associate with fear, but the actual chemical processes that occur behind the scenes to make that feeling really active will not be happening and the consequent actions that contrast or have chemistry to that cascade won't initialize. It's surface level mimicry, rather than the actual event because the deep biological structures are not there, which is the take-home point I'm trying to make.

    I think you're underestimating how much things like desire, fear and safety are brought about by organic processes, that won't be a part of an AI system. Further, there is more recent research on what qualities need to be present and what thresholds are needed to be reached in order to have consciousness that you might want to look into. http://integratedinformationtheory.org/ "Sentient AI" is still a risk, but I don't see the risk as being their going to rise up and choose for themselves to kill us all or enslave us. Instead it'll be danger coming from the increased capacity for misuse they will afford human beings, who will continue to make stupid, hasty decisions that hurt the people around them.

    There is good sex and bad sex. There is connected sex and there is people masturbating into each other's bodies. Good sex begins way before sex even happens and ends way after sex is over. What that means is the interactions in, around, and after it are all a part of the experience, as well as the emotional history of the relationship, which gets missed with this robot sex stuff. If you're good, I'll take your word for it. But, there are people who do not have positive or healthy experiences interacting with women and the habits and skills that come with it. Those people will continue to reinforce the bad habits and deficient skills with these toys and lose the motivation/impetus to learn them. People forget that behaviors escalate, they are not static. First they are fine with sexing the robots, but after awhile, to get a thrill, who knows what fetishes they'll create in order to get off. It's the same thing with porn. Why? Because sex has always been about more than just orgasm, it requires other stuff to be truly satisfying, so it doesn't lead you on some weirdo curve, where you need to be punched in the face by a ginger midget in a furry costume in order to get off. Loneliness isn't a thing for me either. I've spent a lot of my life alone and prefer it to being around people, except for my wife. She's amazing and there is no comparison whatsoever to what we have and some robotic fleshlight. I'd hate to have missed out on all that we have if I had had the choice to settle on robot sex.

    Berner talking about how the culture is being pushed out and the things he's trying to do to head that off. You can fast forward to the 18 minute mark to hear that, but the whole interview is cool.

    I'm not scared of robot consciousness personally but I understand the concern. To me, the most dangerous path in this instance is the one we're already on, which is indulging sexual and other forms of gratification through the use of objects, rather than through the natural process of connection and mutuality. You either learn not to treat people like objects, or deal with the future where objects rise into consciousness and and then require you to go back to point A and again learn not to treat people or other complex life-forms as objects.

    Well, more like put em in a choke hold and force read them Kant's moral theory while they wait for the cops to come. I'd like to see people educated and developed beyond their failings if possible. Change, contain, or destroy. If they won't grow and change, then it's option 2 or 3.

    We already have a bad enough problem of people treating each other like objects in this world. We don't need to create even more life like objects that further reinforce those behaviors. Not unless, their going to make robots with self-respect and boundaries, that will force you to treat them properly.

    Oh yea, it's already affecting the culture. Thankfully there are still some OG's in the game who do it right (for now), like the Jungle Boys out in So.Cal and then Berner, Sherbinski, the rest of the Cookies Fam, and 3rd Generation Fam out in Nor. Cal. But yea, the billionaires are already out there trying to commodify and automate everything. **** sucks, because they'll eventually squeeze out the true artists who spend years hunting pheno's and dealing with the most finicky plants in order to unlock those special flavors. And the laws are already set up in a way where small growers are getting priced out of the permitting process and the chance to introduce their flower to retail shops. Hopefully, the connoisseur market will be strong enough to keep the creative game alive. That and the simple fact, that in order to grow true Triple AAA weed, you need to love the plant and listen to each ones individual wants and needs. These corporations aren't going to want to put in that time and energy, their going to find the strains with the shortest flowering times and the highest yields and then stick those buds in auto-trimmers, which is going to downgrade their product and limit their seed banks. Hopefully, that keeps space open for those who do it right and respect the culture and history, so the only thing left isn't walmart weed.

    Is this the best Defensive Front we've had in years?

    If Manusky gets replaced by someone in house I think it will be Ray Horton rather than Rob Ryan. I’ve enjoyed watching what was available of Ray’s coaching so far. He’s a real cerebral no-nonsense kind of guy who seems to be challenging and pushing his guys more than Torrian Gray did or whatever his name was. I love that he just came out and said our db’s are too quiet on the field and need to step up and have command of their scheme, not just an understanding. I think he’ll be good for the young guys and seems to be having a positive influence on Montae.

    Thought this was pretty cool. Talks about the removal of negative stigmatism and making sure social equity is preserved as this new industry gets off it's feet. It's crazy in a way. People, including me have been locked up and had rights stripped away because of this country's stance on weed and now those very people who marginalized and locked us up for it are now the ones turning massive profits on it and shutting others out of the opportunity.

    Some More Cops Who Need to Be Fired

    I believe this woman saved this man's life. It's amazing and courageous what she did, using the trauma of her past to possibly save this man in the present.
  16. One cool thing, is we actually are taking a page from the Colts and running more pick plays in the red zone this off-season.
  17. It's behind a pay-wall, but I thought this excerpt was promising. It speaks to one of the things I was most hopeful to see in Haskins, which is an exceptional learning/growth curve. Some of this could be off-season fluff, with the way she characterizes his command given what we know about the state of the line right now and the fact he can't be touched by the rush, but the point is that he is working his ass off even after hitting a wall and improving. Looking forward to seeing the next moderate jump in growth when training camp comes along.
  18. JP and the others on their podcast did a segment where they list the percent chance a player is on the field day 1 of Redskins training camp and Guice was at 80-90% for them and Geron Christian was around like 70-80% (for those wondering). I think Guice will be ready, but on a strict snap count up to and into the beginning of the season. If we keep 4 running backs it'll most likely be AP, Guice, Thompson, and Perine with the final spot over Byron Marshall. Love will be on PUP, but might be available mid-season if something happens to Thompson, god forbid.

    Random Thought Thread

    I've changed so much, that I can't remember large portions of my life, plus I've had neurological injuries that in many instances would overwhelm my ability to narrate my experiences and carry out the automatic things necessary for creating connections and memory. In a lot of ways my issues erased parts of me, like in that Pixar movie Inside Out where her different areas that represented parts of her personality would gray out and collapse. I've had to rebuild myself from the inside out, but even though I've lost so much and had to create so much anew, the core of who I am has always been there. In a way, I feel blessed by these horrible experiences, because in being ground down to near nothing, I found something within me that existed beyond thought and beyond identity. And besides all that, even if you forget your memories, your body, your DNA, still carries the adaptations and physical history of the life you've lived and the traumas, skills, capacities, and habits you've internalized. We are more than our memories, we are also the sum of every way in which we've changed by interacting with life and the world around us. We carry history all throughout our body and not just in our minds.
  20. I think Fabian might surprise some people this year. https://riggosrag.com/2019/06/12/redskins-jay-gruden-really-really-really-impressed-by-third-year-corner-fabian-moreau/

    The current status of the Redskins o-line.

    Yup. I'm also hoping with a healthy Richardson, plus the addition of McLaurin we can stretch the field enough to open up the middle more for Reed to eat like back when we had D Jax. Him and Alex had hardly any chemistry last year and not being available during camp was part of that problem. So the above, with a healthy camp adds in some of those missing ingredients for some offensive success... hopefully.

  24. I'm really interested to see what kind of leap his command of the offense takes from OTA's to training camp. Progress isn't linear, it's more based on thresholds and hopefully he will use these weeks in between to internalize the playbook and reach that next major mental threshold.

    The current status of the Redskins o-line.

    I don't know about everybody else but I'm a little more optimistic than past seasons when it comes to Reed. This will be his first off-season in awhile where he can come into camp and go with the ones, rather than be rehabbing till the regular season. He actually had surgery on that turf toe last year that should fix that issue and that surgery was part of what caused him to miss the last off-season. Now, he's still one concussion or other injury away from being out like usual, but at least his push off and separation should be better.
