chatgpt cannot think, let alone read your mind. its an illusion. human behavior has predictable patterns, and chatgpt just mimics it based on whats statistically likely. it doesnt even confidently get facts wrong, because it cannot feel confidence, and it cannot get concepts

Now, this is a cover of the above song that I recently discovered by Van Canto:

Ukraine news: school library. 

Mariupol: this is what the Russians do to Ukrainian schoolbooks - they chucked the library and textbooks outside and replaced them with Russian ones. This is from school number 41 in Mariupol under Russian occupation

grotesque imagery 

My hobby: whenever a company I own shares in has a vote, going through and voting the opposite of what the board recommends

fuck corporate boards; they'd sell their childhood hound for meat if they thought they'd turn a couple cents of profit
