And this is why engineering UI's suck. We just don't feel the pain.

Engineer
Engineers are highly sought after and regularly earn six-figure salaries for performing work that, in all reality, you're not smart enough to do. While you may claim to be more interested in career fields requiring creativity and intuition, the fact is that you just don't have the abilities to be an engineer and you know it.

Amen, unless you're talking to women, or minorities, or any other particular class of people. This is ok to tell people in general though.

So, to recap: Twitter is stupid.

It's obviously a bad time for penises, a very bad time, so we're drinking a whisper of scotch.

Martin Luther King was like, “If you leave, this one image that children have of a black woman as an equal will just disappear from television.”

And she’s like, “Well, that’s a lot, that’s like a lot—that’s a lot on my shoulders. Can you chill?”

And he’s like, “No, I’m Martin Luther King. I have no chill.”

"If the world ever leaves you feeling hopeless, remember that Star Trek was cancelled twice and deemed an utter failure; then rose from the ashes to become the flagship for all of science fiction, spawning six spin-offs, fourteen movies, and enough novels to keep the fires burning through the Long Night. Oh, and inspired new technology, popularized fan fiction, created slash, forged the foundation for modern fan culture, and pushed young people to the sciences. A show that was fucking cancelled. CANCELLED!

So. When it gets bad out there, just… be Star Trek."

What do kids have now? Fantasy? (a la Marvel's MCU and spinoff series) Are we training a generation with a loose grip on reality?

The authors of an April paper on generating poems from photographic images conclude that—even when you activate two discriminative networks that train a recurrent neural network, and link them to a deep coupled visual-poetic embedding model consisting of a skip-thought model, a part-of-speech parser, and a convolutional neural network—writing poems is hard.

On the subject of Donald Glover being cast as Lando:

Agent: "I don't like your odds"

Donald: "Never tell me the odds"

Donald Glover attended my high school!
