So if you have to go the next step you’re not a human.

The real answer is, ‘AI’ is just a name. ‘Intelligence’ is not (excuse the pun) a binary option. If by ‘AI’ you mean ‘human-like intelligence’, then we are nowhere near it yet. Everything we currently have is machine learning, algorithms, pattern recognition. There is no sentience. When we get to the stage where we have true machine sentience, things like the check-boxes you are talking about will not be a thing.

I watch sci fi movies

When we reach singularity we are ■■■■■■.


#3685

Likely.
I love Sci-fi also.
Look up a series of books by Greg Benford - Rivers of Light (sci-fi), I think they are called. He is a physicist (I’ve had a chat to him about his books actually) - really good reading on the subject.

What’s the joke/story with 2 METER PETER?


#3687


#3688

Meter and Peter rhyme.

Pretty sure that’s the extent of it.


#3689

Why does my Raspberry yoghurt have Purple carrot concentrate in it?


#3690

It’s a dye.

Natural food colours are often foods themselves.

Turmeric for yellow is another.


#3691

Yep. Beetroot is often used too.

Cochineal is another Natural food colouring (Red) & is made from crushed beetles, found in Skittles and heaps of other stuff.

Some people have a fixation with anything to do with size, or length.


#3694

And scotty21 dreams of a 6’6” male appendage.


#3695

I think its Peter Crouch’s nick name.

Hence the soccer fans use of it.


#3696

Why do body-builders walk like that?


#3697

whats wrong with it


#3698

It’s usually the size to their thighs, back and arms that give them that peculiar gait.
When I was a serious gym junkie, although not at Donnington standard, my son said I walked like I had a set of golf clubs under each arm.


#3699

Aside from muscles being tight and full of lactic acid, they also like looking big :slight_smile:


#3700

I used to work with a guy who walked like that, and we called him “carpet fitter”.

So…credit score websites are just an information trawling scam, right?
