Las Vegas' dystopia-sphere, powered by 150 Nvidia GPUs and drawing up to 28,000,000 watts, is both a testament to the hubris of humanity and an admittedly impressive technical feat | PC Gamer
  • This isn't pushing any boundaries, though. This is off the shelf technology. Anybody can do something big by throwing a shit ton of money at it. It would be pushing boundaries of tech or art if it was for instance super power efficient, or mind bending in any way. This is a fucking sphere, it's the simplest shape and a rip off of the pyramids but less original and not even comparable in terms of durability.

  • Well this is not good math at all. If you create a project and offset all its power requirements, you haven't added anything to the grid. The alternative is to not do stuff, which is not going to happen anytime soon*, so it's a net good thing and needs to be incentivized, not disparaged.

    *Well it will happen after the water wars and plagues wipe us out, and the sphere will stop drawing any energy at that point.

  • AOC files articles of impeachment against Supreme Court Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito
  • Ah, so that's why as we all know everyone above 26 is perfectly adult and competent

    Edit: My point was not very evident but that study is not as clear as people thinks it is on the fact that brains are fully developed at 25. They probably keep developing for much longer. But it's not an excuse to exclude people from politics
