I've heard conversation coming out of animal pens that is more intelligent than what is going on in here.

I don't know if I went to Shake Shack or a place called The Shake Shack, but it was pretty good. I live in a town with a horrendous Whataburger now, so I've been pivoting between Braum's and Sonic recently.

I tired Sonic once. It was pretty unremarkable. We have a chain called Five Guys burgers and they are good and give you way too many fries. Also very fortunate to have Mr. Bento Burger! Kickass burgers with coarsely ground Angus beef with teriyaki mixed in. I gotta go eat.

Smoke up folks!
Origins
In 1971, five high school students in San Rafael, California,[5][6] used the term "4:20" in connection with a plan to search for an abandoned cannabis crop, based on a treasure map made by the grower.[7][8] Calling themselves the Waldos,[9][10] because their typical hang-out spot "was a wall outside the school",[11] the five students — Steve Capper, Dave Reddix, Jeffrey Noel, Larry Schwartz, and Mark Gravich[12] —designated the Louis Pasteur statue[13] on the grounds of San Rafael High School as their meeting place, and 4:20 pm as their meeting time.[11] The Waldos referred to this plan with the phrase "4:20 Louis". After several failed attempts to find the crop, the group eventually shortened their phrase to "4:20", which ultimately evolved into a code-word the teens used to refer to consuming cannabis.[7]

Steven Hager of High Times popularized the story of the Waldos.[14] The first High Times mention of 4:20 smoking and a 4/20 holiday appeared in May 1991,[15] and the connection to the Waldos appeared in December 1998. Hager attributed the early spread of the phrase to Grateful Dead followers[16] – after "Waldo" Reddix became a roadie for the Grateful Dead's bassist, Phil Lesh[12] – and called for 4:20 pm to be the socially accepted time of the day to consume cannabis.[16

I find AI Research super interesting.. and as this relates to physics and games I thought it would be cool to share here. Would be a cool graduate program.. but I probably lack some fundamentals in ML & AI. I'll keep watching from a far in awe.

A: Instructions to convert from the CentOS Linux 8 distribution to CentOS Stream 8 are published at https://www.centos.org/centos-stream/ and are also below for your convenience.

root@centos-linux# dnf install centos-release-stream

root@centos-linux# dnf swap centos-{linux,stream}-repos

root@centos-linux# dnf distro-sync

root@centos-stream# cat /etc/centos-release
CentOS Stream release 8
This will result in some package updates and new packages being installed, which is expected.
Did that last night with some alcohol to help. Really quite a seamless process they have. Just took a bit of waiting!

Finally got around to watching "The Sound of Metal" on Prime this weekend. It's a well done movie. I can totally relate to hearing loss after 50+ years of damaging my hearing starting with smashing entire rolls of caps with a rock to being in a band through high school to riding and racing and going to races along with 30+ years in machine shops. It seems to be an anti-cochlear implant film. It also seems to emphasize your own tinnitus and/or hearing loss. Heavy shit man. Protect your hearing!

Interesting. Especially in moto, you are seeing more guys wearing ear plugs. I think as the helmets become more vented, lighter, and more advanced the more audio input you receive.

I took a year of ASL a couple years ago, I never realized there were arguments against cochlear implants until I took those courses. The professor had us watch a movie from the perspective of someone that had cochlear implants, it's not what everyone would think it is. I wonder if Elon Musk's Neuralink device will smash the performance of the cochlear implants? What is even scarier to think... in theory the neurlink could make the case that hearing will not be a majority form of communication at some point. :shock:
