Why did the former president open a bakery?

Because he wanted to make America grate again with his dough-kneading skills!

That joke was generated by ChatGPT. It's now integrated into Opera, you can highlight any text and it suggests prompts based on it. That's what it gave for "make a joke" about this entire post:
I'm pretty afraid that we might actually get another Trump presidency

Does that feature have usefulness beyond using it for jokes?

So... not really. I guess it can translate things but I already have DeepL for that and it's way more convenient and generally sufficiently accurate.

I'm increasingly using GPT-4 to summarize academic papers. My dream software would be a unified UI where I can select portions of a paper and automatically get GPT-4 summaries (and then also press a button to turn them into audio). But even if I have to go through the annoyance of copy and pasting them (and running them through an intermediate tool to remove linebreaks), it's worth it. GPT-4 is awesome at summarizing complicated language, and you can ask it questions about concepts referenced in the paper. It's a really amazing tool.

Insomnia (2002)

aka the Nolan film noone remembers in between Memento and Batman Begins

It seems like what I got out of this movie has nothing to do with what other people get out of it. So this is a remake of a Norwegian film about a homicide detective who's a giant piece of shit and goes to this place in Alaska where it never gets dark and he can't sleep. The killer gets compromising information on him and he's forced to work with him. The remake tells the same story, except the main character is somewhat more likeable.

By which I mean he's just a good man thrown into a terrible situation with a genuine moral dilemma, and you're watching him get tortured by lack of sleep for about a week, and it's depressing af. It's actually one of the most depressing movies I've ever seen. So if the goal was to make him morally gray, I'd say the movie utterly failed because it didn't even occur to me to judge him. And conversely, if someone is watching this and goes like "oh yeah this guy definitely deserves what's happening to him", I'd just be like what the fuck.

Like, I don't know how other people work, but for me, judging someone requires that they make clearly wrong choices, so if it's completely unclear what the right choice even is, that doesn't apply. And it's been established that (unlike in the original) the trouble he got in wasn't his fault, either.

Also the movie is quite beautiful in terms of setting and atmosphere. And great performances. Which all just makes it more effective in being depressing.

So what's the message? I don't really know or care. What I got out of it was just feeling very sad. Is that good? I'm not sure. This is generally a confusing question. But arguably that's a state of mind that people do seek out. And fwiw if we did just go just by intensity of emotions it evoked, this would be #1 among Nolan movies. We don't go by that of course, so idk how to rate it.

Any recommendations for travel in the German Alps? I've read so many websites.

All I can say is that we went to the Lechtal numerous times and never saw much reason to go somewhere else. In fact I'll visit again for maybe a week later this summer!

In general, I think if you want to go hiking, you'll likely to have a pretty good time. People are lazy and not that many want to hike, so it's pretty cheap to go during the summer, and there's also a system by which you can use public transport via I think a one time payment. And when it comes to the actual hiking, many routes are pretty well marked.

Also for some reason many people like to take a lift upward and then "hike" downward, which makes no sense to me, so if you do the opposite there'll be even fewer other people.

If I type ... in the the windows search,
  • "C" or "Co", it shows me "consciousness explained" from Dennett
  • "Con", it shows me the control panel
  • "Cons", it shows me Miktex console
  • "Consc", it shows me Consciousness Reductionism, my working folder for the entire project
  • "Consci" or "Conscio", it shows me Consciousness Explained
  • "Consciou" or "Conscious", it shows me Consciousness Reductionism
  • "Consciousn", "Consciousne", "Consciousnes", or "Consciousness", it shows me Consciousness Explained

The Windows search algorithm, that's what.

So obviously, GPT-4 isn't going to help you in figuring out whether a scientific consensus is true or not. But I've been wondering whether it could be helpful in figuring out what the scientific consensus is. Theoretically, this ought to be something GPT-4 knows quite reliably.

And it would be quite helpful because people disagree about this all the time. Whether anyone is convinced by that is a different question.

Damn, look at this. That's conditional odds, so P(win | nominated) = P(win and nominated)/P(nominated)

Uhh I'm always happy to earn a spot. Especially since I presumably can't get there anymore just by thinking Musk is bad.

By the way, I just took the same MBTI test again. Want to guess what result I got this time?

For reference, the last time was in January 2022 and I got ENFP-A.
