It be funny if all robots of the future had Donald trumps face....

Why would that happen?  Has Donald Trump been having sex with the mother robot?

Grabbed it by the ... And electrocutes himself.  :-X

Apparently you could submit photos of your face to be used on humanoid robots, and you'll be paid $129k if they used your face. I'm submitting mine. Wish me luck guys, hahah.  ;D

The robot will go rogue and you'll end up being a suspect. If it's an AI it'll take over your life.

You've been warned!

I'd love to see something with my face annihilate all of humankind, hahah.  ;D

I'm afraid this is for the British members (unless you know 1. the image of how London people think about the rest of the country; 2. UK main channels; 3. Channel 4 moving to Leeds, which is an *amazing* city ;D; 4. Channel 4's latest campaign about their complaints+ )

Yes ;D
(we call them motorways)

That's the actual location of the new offices, it used to be a very famous nightclub that burned down a few years ago, now being converted into offices. It's right opposite the train station.

Why should they do this? There are perfectly fine AI rendered faces of people who don't exist and there are probably billions of people who would do this for a fraction of $129k. So where does this absurd sum come from?
(The cynical in me says that they did this because they are going to choose their own face and can get the money this way. :P)

Aaaah it's not even 5 and it's already dusk... :-\
I don't mind much (I like the cold) but I feel we haven't had enough nice weather to enjoy this year...

Really? It's getting dark early in North Germany as well, but I still have not been wearing a jacket since March.

Eli, I bet he's part of this group of people that belong to a different race, despite looking like humans. I've got a few at work too. When everyone is shivering they walk around in t-shirts, and when we're wrapping up against the office air-con they turn on their fans ;D

Unseasonably gorgeous weather here in Trumpland. I’ll take it.
Meanwhile, it’s still daylight when I drive home, but not for long.
In a week, we change our clocks, shifting them an hour forward. A little brighter in the morning, but basically night at 5 during my commute.
Change, when it comes, will step lightly before it kicks like thunder. (GRMatthews)

Yes, I know that you only change the clocks next week because during this week all the regular meetings set by the US are an hour earlier for me, hehe
Next week we go back to the normal 5 hours difference.

Hmm? I think you should probably double check that.  ;) ;D
