Brain signals converted into speech for the first time
a neural network builds a mind map of its limbs and its environments, perfecting movement through interactions with its surroundings. Depending on their first moments of life, the researchers noticed that some robots even developed personal gaits.
Many people have uttered to me those 3 little words, and I to them. I always felt a little unnerved by the ritual. There was always this underlying internal niggle that I didn't really feel anything. I thought it, and I thought I felt it, but they were always just words. Anyway. It happened again. The other day. In the car. It wasn't a special moment or anything. She said them. Those words. It filled me with a deep sadness that I never want to lose. I feel broken. I think I'm in trouble. Fuck.

Why on Earth do people who are obviously deaf and have never played a guitar attempt to tab out songs and put it on the internet? I don't get it. Wtf is wrong with these people? They are the same jerks who give shit directions because they are too idiotic to admit that they have no bloody idea what they are talking about and screw you over when you're in a rush. It infuriates me. It seriously makes me so mad. I just want accurate tabs. Bastards.

Self obsession Show more
I used to think of self obsession as being vain and narcissistic. As time goes by I can so clearly see the havoc my own self obsessed thinking wreaks on my internal world. Tonight I am amongst many friends yet I am self-conscious to the point of paranoia and madness. It's an unbelievably painful place to be, and I spend far too much time here. I wish I could make it stop. Why can't I make it stop. No one else can see my insides. Fuck. I was going to be cool.
Hi all! I’m new to Mastodon so here’s my first go at an #introductions post.
I’m a second year computer science student in Glasgow, Scotland. I’ve been using Linux exclusively for about 6 years and want to enter the #FreeSoftware community to contribute to cool projects. Because much of my coursework requires using proprietary software, I’m interested in projects aimed at making free software choices more practical for institutions as well as average users.
All I wanted was banh mi. Stupid lunar new year. This is the worst thing that has ever happened today. Chuc mung nam moi to you too.
