somewhat related: am i the only one that finds it really weird that people refer to siri and alexa using female pronouns? i know they have female names and voices but theyre not living things nor do they have physical anthropomorphic characteristics

anyway, apparently alexa laughs randomly or talks without provocation and its freaking people out. im not worried because its way more likely to be a sign of buggy technology than ai creeping toward sentience. i also think its weird that the type of person who is worried about ai gaining sentience would want to have a talking network connected voice activated device in their house in the first place

I read that entire horseshit queer theory drone paper, its incredible the sort of utterly worthless things leftists can produce in academia

Sometimes I wish there were more vulgar materialists just so we can have fewer papers about "disorienting the act of killing possibly opening up new routes in waging war that dont redound to hegemonic masculinity, possibly dealing a blow to gender binaries" and more dorks with spreadsheets being wrong about the role of culture

well duh, of course the rich idiot amerikkkan's disembodied robot secratary who they order to change the channel is female, and into this they transfer their latent fear about their office cleaner murdering them (good)

Having a contact slide behind your eye is the worst. It’s like feeling an eyelash in your eye except for several hours.
#4353
reminded of this and euueueughhhh

A brief write-up in the British Medical Journal claims that doctors found 27 contact lenses in a 67-year-old patient’s eye when she was being prepped for surgery at England’s Solihull Hospital.

The piece was authored by Rupal Morjaria, a specialist trainee ophthalmologist; Richard Crombie, a consultant anesthesiologist; and Amit Patel, a consultant ophthalmologist.

The lenses were clumped together in a “blueish mass” and were “bound together by mucus,” according to the journal.

...

“Patients do sometimes present with a contact lens stuck under their upper eyelid, particularly if they are new to contact lens wear, or have problems with dexterity, but finding this many lenses stuck in someone’s eye is exceedingly rare,” Association of Optometrists clinical and regulatory officer Henry Leonard told Optometry Today. “Most patients would experience significant discomfort and redness, and be at risk of eye infections.”

They were also confused by how they got there. Perhaps it’s because she had “deep set eyes, which might have contributed to the unusually large number of retained foreign bodies,” the paper in BMJ stated.

Immediately, they postponed the pending surgery.

“Because she had harboured these contact lenses in her eye for an unknown length of time, if we had operated she would have had a lot of bacteria” in her eye, Morjaria said.

wear glasses imo
#4355
contacts are amazing though, they're the closest thing we have to magic or cybertech or whatever
#4356
soft contact lense (čočka) technology is a glorious scientific breakthrough attained by the patriotic chemists of socialist czechoslovakia and trash talking them is transparent anti-communism
#4357
I love contacts but after nearly a decade of wearing them every day with no problems I got an abrasion over my cornea or something, now I can only wear them for like an occasional evening out at most before they get really uncomfortable
#4358
i have worn glasses since i was 11 and never tried contacts. i regret nothing.
