my housemate: is Tom [my partner] on night shifts? we want to do some strimming but don't want to wake him
me: yeah he went to bed like an hour ago, don't wake him up
housemate: okay! *goes into garden* *slams back door* *stands below our bedroom window and yells at partner who's at the other end of the garden* WE CAN'T DO ANY STRIMMING BECAUSE TOM'S ASLEEP

I gave a set of 2020 headlines to the neural net GPT-3, whose training data cut off in October 2019.

Having never seen 2020, it tried to predict what headlines are next on the list.

I'm hand-curating the GPT-3 generated #Botober prompts because many of the neural net's drawing prompts are terrible for one reason or another.
Here are some of the prompts that were unfairly difficult.

Seems like nobody is thrilled at the #nhm's new director. They claim they're for diversity but the white men who run it keep hiring other white men. The museum keeps modelling itself on brainless soulless corporations and I don't think that's compatible with their values. Certainly decolonisation is not going to be on their radar beyond lip service. I wonder what it would take for him to step down and be replaced with someone more appropriate.

I used the neural net GPT-2 to generate some April Fools pranks.

conveniently they're all pranks you play on yourself. or possibly solo performance art.

I searched for "pandas" (the python library)... I have absolutely no idea where "people" came from

serial killers, eye strain (terrible photo) 

still not people though apparently 🙃

saw an ad on the tube this morning for phone insurance telling me that without facebook, tinder, and google I'd have no mates, love, or answers.

I don't use any of them and yes I do not really have friends and I certainly do not have answers but I don't think that's something that massive corporations are going to fix

tldr: it was a stupid fucking advert

top tip: don't forget to take ur SSRIs for 2 days in a row

made vegan soya mince + vegetable chilli and it was surprisingly photogenic (also tasty, but definitely needed more spice) 😊
