Is there any truth to the shit people say about exposing the yolk to the air before cooking makes it less healthy or something
I have never heard that but it sounds like total nonsense
Something to do with the cholesterol in the yolk being oxidized which somehow makes it bad cholesterol instead of good cholesterol

this is what it looks like when an ai tries to dream up an entirely new animated scene based on what it's learned

http://www.cs.columbia.edu/~vondrick/tinyvideo/

it's uncanny just how close it is to being able to put together a completely believable yet wholly computer generated image lol, and at this rate it's bound to get to that point quite soon

yeah i simply can't see a good (ethical) use for this particular technology at all either lol, aside from i guess in the film industry (but at what cost)

it's astonishing that machine learning has gotten so advanced so quickly that something like this is even possible at all

on the plus side, it's the very same sort of machine learning that's brought us legitimately amazing and incredibly useful technologies like ray tracing and waifu2x lol

here is the source



in a time where FAKE NEWS is being shouted all around, it seems like this sort of technological development is going to do more harm than good.

At least it's a way off. I only recently bought hollow knight on switch. Thankfully I also used some gold points to get it cheaper

they get easier from there. 5 and 6 are stupid easy. and also a lot worse than 1-4 tbh.

I remember 6 being hard, but in a dumb way.
