Frank Thoughts: The Robots Are Coming for George R. R. Martin
A bunch of smart thoughts on recent events
Public Service Announcement
Before we get to my thoughts, I was asked to announce that the military is missing yet another F-35. It looks like a big plane with missiles and answers to the name “Bomby.” If you see it, please call the military.
For those who don’t feel like reading (or don’t know how), here’s an abridged video version of today’s thoughts.
It looks like we’re headed for a government shutdown.
We did it!
Everyone is always complaining about the government, and it looks like it’s finally getting shut down. Good job, everyone!
Senate Dress Code
Senator John Fetterman is very sad, and his brain is damaged, so he got a doctor’s note saying he has to dress like a dumb slob. Thus, the Democrats changed the dress rules so John Fetterman can come into the Senate chamber looking like a homeless ogre that got lost.
The Republicans are all like, “No, you have to wear a tie.” But the last time Fetterman tried to tie a tie, he nearly strangled himself (his brain is damaged). So the Republicans insisting on a tie is basically them trying to murder John Fetterman. So the whole situation has left Fetterman confused and angry (he bit a trashcan thinking it was a small robot man). People should leave him alone.
No new indictments! Good job, Trump. Things are turning around.
The Politicization of the Department of Justice
Merrick Garland, Attorney General and failed contestant from the hit show So You Want to Be a Supreme Court Justice, has been accused of politicizing the Department of Justice for doing such things as letting Hunter Biden off with no charges (and even giving him his crack back) but also indicting other people on charges such as “Being a Republican on a Tuesday.” Also, they indicted a Republican president (even though he says he didn’t do anything wrong).
Garland responded to the charges by yelling, “Kill them, my tanks! Kill them for being Republicans!” But no tanks came because it ends up he’s not that kind of general. Oh boy, those hearings got awkward when he just sat there and no tanks came. You have to feel for the guy.
There’s a border crisis with lots of people crossing the southern border. Why is this happening? Just to make sure, did we put signs up marking the border? And are in the Spanish — say something like, “El Bordero”? Maybe it’s a simple fix like that.
The studios sat down with the WGA to try and end the writers’ strike, but the meeting quickly broke down when the studios found out the writers still wanted money.
See, Hollywood used to be about the love of filmmaking, but then greedy writers came in and ruined everything by making it all about them getting paid. Good on the studios for sticking to their principles that films and TV are about the love of the craft and thus refusing to pay anyone.
AI and Writers
A number of writers, like George R.R. Martin, are suing OpenAI over how their AI read all their books. Man, I think they’re lucky. I’ve been trying to get AI to read Superego and tell me what it thinks, but it just keeps saying, “Hit token limit.” And I can’t find a token machine to give it more tokens.
I can see why George R.R. Martin is scared. Think of a future where AI robots take over. Then Martin will have to explain why he never finished the last two books of the Game of Thrones series to the robots’ uncaring metal claws.
Here are some special thoughts just for my cool dude paid subscribers. Thanks again for your support; you’re awesome.
