I don't get any of that money, I live in nearby Maryland.  Mostly, none of us go to DC in the Summer.  I even just watch the Mall fireworks on TV.

But, but ... isn't the whole E Coast in summer, humid?  Old people should stay in.

That is a really big night crawler!  Bet we can catch Moby Dick with that one!

Not if you are a giant bird.  The giant killer land parrot of Argentina could have handled him!

Look at the Titanis in particular!

Ah, proof that extinction is a good thing sometimes; that is a screenshot just chock full of FUCK NO!

"genetic programming" is another AI failure.  The only working system is a deep neural net.  And we can't understand it once it improves.  Like trying to reverse engineer your DNA from only your own copy.

Easy.  I get a bone like in 2001 A Space Odyssey and brain both fruits.  Oh, you mean Game Theory?  Another failure, that was used to manage the Vietnam War.  Ho Chi Minh wasn't a constrained toy problem.  Black pajamas maybe.

We're all mutants, we've been mutating for eons, that's how we became what we are. Mutation is the number one driver of evolution.
