Google fired another woman working in the ethics of AI... because she was looking into why they fired the woman before her who was working in the ethics of AI.

I was sitting in my desk, trying to solve the mystery of why my MatLab plot wasn't showing in the screen but wasn't throwing any errors either.
The data seemed ok.
The plot command was fine.
And then I noticed a sneaky line, where it read set("LineWidth", 0.01). I commented that line.

The plot thickens.

This is Cosmo. Cosmo woke me up this morning by walking out of bed into a laundry basket and getting himself stuck. Good boy, Cosmo. I’m glad we don’t live near any sinkholes or canyons or something.

Okay, beloved. That's enough. I threw a proper commit at the repo and I even managed a proper message free of typos.

Lovely dreams, ya beautiful nerds.

I mean, really, I’m just sitting here… Drinking booze and writing code.

Hunter Thompson would go outside his house, half drunk, and shoot at things because he liked to hear the explosions.

I don't have a gun, but I have a bow. I'm well into a cordless screwdriver (vodka and diet orange soda) and can confirm that semi-inebriated archery is a fantastic release. Highly recommended.

Fourth alarm just rolled down the street. Gotta be a fully involved fire.

And for tonight's madness:

Structure fire - approximately four miles from here. Third alarm just dispatched from Bowling Green FD with Plum Springs taking the initial call.

And then I get this video on Facebook. I’ve never had a video recommended to me like this before.
