  1. Do you think an entirely artificial womb could possibly work instead?
  2. Most of the current LLMs are not researching anything they write.
  3. Yes, I think they either programmed GPT for sheer speed or don't have the training database set up in such a way thay it can find actual references. You can't really store links and similar data easily using default token system. Beyond a few pieces they're all too random. Did see where it Rickrolled one guy though, so who knows.
  4. Yeah, honestly getting the actual source and not a probabilistic hallucination would not be that much additional code/memory. It's like the math issue. It's not hard for a computer to do math correctly, but someone still needs to be arsed to program in the ability.
  5. This video gives much clearer details, math involved and their results from testing(it did not at their elevation). My take is that it is supposed to exploit the difference in air pressure between the inlet and outlet. May be worth retesting at a lower elevation.
  6. Yes, in English some words have multiple correct pronunciations. https://accenteraser.com/blog/words-with-more-than-one-correct-pronunciation/ If distant memory serves, host would have a list of words along with their phonetic spelling(s).
  7. It's a Mortise Guage. https://www.harborfreight.com/6-inch-mortise-gauge-94645.html https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mortise_gauge Was someone into carpentry or woodworking?

  9. China is likely to have another Civil War. There's elsewhere that has greater risk potential. Climate change is something of a wildcard though. Are glossing over lot of issues China is having lately with shoddy practices. Fake and defective products, tofu-dreg construction. They're about where we were at as a country decades ago.
  10. Yeah, the parties are not exact opposites in some respects. Main issue with a national referendum is the limited powers granted to the Federal government. A referendum wouldn't open up a new mechanism for change. A majority of States hold referendums and similar at their level though. I feel need to expect our representatives to represent us on the more complex issues. There's legislation that truly requires specialists to spend time to analyzing and debating.
  11. There were a number of compromises made prior to. Ultimately they only pushed the problem into the future with devastating results. With runaway slaves and attempt to maintain the power balance between the sides, the issue of Slavery ended up crossing State borders.
  12. I sometimes wonder if there's an issue with zero (maximums/minimums) as a concept. Not sure what we could replace it with though.
  13. Big Bang is after a hypothetical t=0, so universe already had some volume.
  14. Japanese civilian casualty estimates from Operation Downfall are also much higher. Perhaps they would have unconditionally surrendered or the invasion forces flagged though. There are several ways events could have played out.
  15. Same here. We have one passing over in 2045.
  16. Was a typo, setTimeout is missing an 'i'. I think you do need to have it call a function though.
  17. The Vice President Elect, who is also the current Vice President. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vice_President-elect_of_the_United_States https://simple.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_presidential_line_of_succession There is a couple month transition period before Inauguration, so wouldn't immediately impact anything were they different people.
  18. @Externet If you meant for the machine itself, there is a standpipe nearby that goes to the sewer and a separate(unused) pipe that runs through the wall to the backyard.
  19. Glad to know what those are. Whoever did the plumbing before I bought the place really knew their business. Even the window AC unit has actual drain piping lol. Leaking water would flow outdoors.
  20. Here are a few options, the first will also let you search by name. https://voteview.com/ https://www.govtrack.us/congress/votes https://www.congress.gov/roll-call-votes I tend to use Ballotpedia most though as it also covers local politicians and ballot proposals. https://ballotpedia.org/Main_Page
  21. We elect many judges here... How are they picked in Canada? Do need lawmakers more willing to amend the relevant Constitution above them or to pass laws that will hold up to challenge. Creates impermanent law situation times fifty-one.
  22. It's concerned with dedollarization. Some of the countries involved emphasize currency controls or have issues with each other, so not sure how it'll work out in the long run. Honestly, wouldn't be the worst thing in the world to have an opposition. States tend to only unite if they think it necessary to counter a perceived threat.
  23. Might try the below and see if that works. Is this a personal computer? https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/problem-after-type-ipconfigrelease/64393d95-ceab-427b-a569-c3bde5a6ff2b
  24. We'll probably switch over to widespread automation and/or artificial means to maintain population levels.
