One. With D and d from the father and E and e from the mother. so that you get offspring with de, dE, De and DE, and so forth for all genes. Not the situation now, where the father has Q, the mother has Q and the child gets Q.
? Are you talking alphabet soup? Or, "if you cross a German license plate with a spanish one, you get the German top level domain? And that has ST:TNG got to do with thatt?

Yeah, there’s too much water in coffee for it to harm you, even in espresso. There’s this one thing with half the water of espresso that could be dangerous though, let me google the name.

Ah yes, “ristretto”.

You add water to your coffee? What a wimp. :p

Maybe it's just me, but I don't really want all my driving games to look like they're set in German cities.
Daunted by the thought if being among Autobahn drivers all the time? ;)
Plus calling this photorealistic when those cast shadows are way too sharp even if the sky were clear (it's not, incidentally if you look above the horizon) is a stretch.
At the end, they show the results of having used a more vibrant training set.

I'm more bothered by the limitations it puts on the art direction.
Mirror's Edge is getting old but it's still one of the best looking games out there, not because it's realistic but because it has an amazing art direction.

There's a thing just off the Georgia coast that has a 40% chance of depression formation in the next two days. I don't think it's really moving toward anywhere, but after it forms, who knows?

I've been wondering why I chose a life where I'm interested in video games, but not skilled or resilient enough to complete most of them. I remembered that I believe in multiple lives too though, so being around during the same time as video games could just be a coincidence. Maybe I'm not supposed to even be interested in video games at all.

Sandi, the woman with the near death experiences that I follow on reddit, did a video recently that I watched yesterday. Most of it was stuff I already saw her post before, but there was an interesting part about her soul playing in lava. She was the one who told me a while ago that I had a past life. I want more info about this stuff, but I don't want to bother her for it, as she gets a lot of requests already. I've mentioned this before, but I wish all the good spirituality drugs wouldn't conflict with my medications.

People who believe in past lives think almost everyone had a past life, so it's easy for her to tell you that you have one; it's a core tenet of her belief.

In other news, Vice news/Motherboard have posted a news story about a US catholic priest who was secretly gay was outed due to using grindr and going to gay bars. The problem doesn't seem to be core to grindr, it's down to the way grindr integrates ads to its platform, passing on unfiltered metadata. So it effectively passes on your GPS coordinates to advertisers, who collude with locations companies to track people down. Those advertising ids are pseudonomised, but if you know where someone lives, you can filter the data based on the address of that building and narrow the search down considerably. And this doesn't just affect grindr reportedly, but almost any phone app that has adverts in them.
