An American woman said she was shocked to discover that Alaska isn't actually an island, calling for an 'overhaul' of the school curriculumA woman said she was shocked to discover that Alaska is not an island, and that you can drive to it, despite how it looks on the maps she saw at school.www.insider.com
Back when I was in school, it didn't look like an island then, either. Unless you only had access to one of those maps that displays just the 50 states, with Alaska and Hawaii sidebar'ed on the left side of it.despite how it looks on the maps she saw at school
this is the single most incredible musical instrument i’ve ever played, hands down, in my entire life. It’s called BioSynth. I tried it a couple years ago, and it’s actually what inspired me to make my new Glider record. the way it works is you actually attach your veins to the synth through an IV (it’s not as weird as it sounds). Once the IV is in, the synth starts injecting a stream of femtobots into your bloodstream (femtobots are 10^(-15) meters, or six orders of magnitude smaller than nanobots). The femtobots cross the blood brain barrier and enter two parts of your brain: 1) your auditory cortex (in the temporal lobes of the brain) and 2) your prefrontal cortex. the bots then have created a full feedback loop between your intentions (in your frontal cortex) and what you hear from the output of the synth (through your auditory cortex). as the bots flow through your bloodstream and back into the synth, they transmit the data back to an onboard ML engine, and over a period of 60-90 seconds, the synth learns how to close the gap between your intentions and its auditory output. what that means is essentially, what you want to hear, is what you start to hear… exactly. like it makes the sound in your head — precisely — and instantly — in every moment — effortlessly. it is unlike any playing experience i’ve ever had in my life. you can hear it on the track “Red Day, Fog City” on my new Glider record.
