Minimum wafiu Kiwi 10/15/2021 (Fri) 18:34:51 No.13648 [Reply]
Minimum viable waifu. In this thread, we'll discuss what our minimums for waifus are. Be it software, hardware, physical appearance, etc. This will help us focus in on what are the minimum goals we need to achieve as our first steps. For me, I want a waifu that will be just tall enough to hug (about 1.3 m), able to follow me around and have conversations with, will follow basic commands like going to designated spots at designated times, and look like picrel.

>>18266 This is where preference models become handy because they do exactly that, rate things. You don't want a model to generate the most likely code, art, music or writing. It needs to be the best or it won't work. Preferences and values are what create a personality. Something I've been working on is making a generalized preference model so users can define what they want in natural language and it will perform as well on their preferences as it does on mine even if we disagree.

Will Cogley came out with a snap fit eye mechanism (no screws needed). I put it into the vision thread: >>31472 Personally I wouldn't use this in my robowaifu design, but I think this could be good base to have a module of eyes to carry around, maybe put cameras into a improved eye design, add something like a Rock 5B with Whisper voice recognition, and add a computer that connects to other computers on the network which then can do object recognition, AI responses from an LLM or more into the device in form of voice. Obviously microphone and small speakers would also be necessary. Add some hook to carry this simple design around when you're at home, and use this to think about how the AI and whole system should work.
>>31473 Very nice improvement to his design. Assembly complexity is a deep and important topic for those of us anons who want to devise our own for-sale robowaifu kits targeted at laymen anons. Thanks for bringing this to everyone's attention, NoidoDev. Cheers.
The other day I was thinking about what exactly or roundabouts it would cost to make a robowaifu. Here's what came up with. I think I read the present processor in a Tesla Model 3 is $35. Let's say you add ten of these for more power. $350. Maybe $600 for all wiring, other semiconductors and power supply. 2,500W/h per day for batteries. At $132/kWh we have $330. Maybe $120 of plastic and aluminum. Comes to $1,400. You could surely build one for even less than this. The key, the major big ass key is being able to assemble all these parts without some major fiddling with a ton of strings or wires or soldiering all of them. This is the ONLY reason I have backtracked on the idea of using hydraulics. With hydraulics you could make a large bladder and cast the whole circulatory, muscle and maybe even the skin with sensors system in one operation. It would save a huge amount of labor. There's a rule of thumb that for mass prodution you can get the cost of an item to material cost plus 10%. Obviously this doesn't always work but it's a general rule. So thinking about material cost should not be ignored. I wonder if you made a robowaifu that could walk independently and had a little verbal ability if you could get $3,000 USD for them? Maybe it respond to simple, go here, go there follow me sort of commands. I think you could do this with a mid range desktop processor.

Nuzach / Pedochu / Niggerchu / Eric Unironic Ralphamale 09/02/2022 (Fri) 01:02:27 ID: 32497c No.170550 [Reply] [Last]
Nuzach once enjoyed the prime-time bloodsports even before jcaesar187's downfall at the hands of the Гунт with by far the most stupid reasons to lose one's mind for; a good deal of 8ch veterans kept enjoying his seething about alogs until this day. But not nuzach, he was too much of a trailer trash white G​AMERGATE himself to laugh at a lolcow proper and enjoy the show. But most importantly, he was a ni/gg/er at heart. He didn't luck out with the /cow/ userbase that repeatedly mocked his inclinations to waste time playing cuckeogooms and to want to fuck children. Neither did he luck out with the administration, and his buddy John was ousted and the ni/gg/er-infested cancer known as /v/ removed from my jewish mother. As a result of my jewish mother cracking down on pedos, he lost 90% of his remaining sanity. To get told to "go and make your own site if you want to jack it to children" was the straw that broke this buck's back. As a result all his pedo buddies, those parasitic cliques that had already lost 60% of their numbers when TheGatorGamer got rid of /hebe/ and other boards, were left without a host again. Some went to KC, others were scattered in the wind forever. Enter zzzchan, a pretty rulecucked site existing pretty much solely for the ni/gg/er pedos to play smash and jerk off to kids, where the mere suggestion that loli is pedophilic earns the poster a ban. Even the few boards that wanted none of that were eventually infested. Nuzach now spends his days seething on zzzchan about the alogs and tvch, sometimes going to those sites to seethe at the moderation and screech at "/cow/kikes" and Anita. Nuzach is definitely the main individual lolcow of the webring, the juciest one among the collective lolcow that the ni/gg/ers from zzzchan are. Banned from every board that isn't ran by pedos, he says the "/cow/kike moderation" and "feminists" are at fault for him getting banned from every place he goes to. No, it couldn't be the precious Eric, he's too good to be fairly banned.

>>252105 Don't forget that it is a FACT that Nuzach is a user not only of zzzchan, but also of 8chan.moe. He's been to zzzchan countless times to cry about tvch and his alogs there, trying to provoke a raid and getting fed up with nuzach and Dolphin. And it's been proven that he really has even posted on the interracial board on cakekike site, while trying to falseflag as someone from tvch, including posting memes made by nuzach there to screenshot and say "hey, nuzach and wrist are users of /interracial/!!!" All this has already been posted in this thread and he actually spammed the report bottom hoping that the mods would delete the screenshots. A true heir to Niggerchu and Zach legacy.

My Advanced Realistic Humanoid Robot Project - Eve Artbyrobot 04/18/2024 (Thu) 17:44:09 No.30954 [Reply] [Last]
So far I have plans to build Adam, Eve, and Abel robots. All of these are Bible characters. This thread will cover the Eve robot. Eve will have no "love holes" because adding those would be sinful and evil. It is a robot, not a biological woman after all and I will view her with all purity of heart and mind instead of using her to fulfill my lusts of my body. Instead I will walk by the Spirit no longer fulfilling the lusts of the flesh as the Bible commands. Eve will be beautiful because making her beautiful is not a sinful thing to do. However, I will dress her modestly as God commands of all women everywhere. This would obviously include robot women because otherwise the robot woman would be a stumbling block to men which could cause them to lust after her which would be a sin. To tempt someone to sin is not loving and is evil and so my robot will not do this. To dress her in a miniskirt, for example, would be sinful and evil and all people who engage in sinfullness knowingly are presently on their way to hell. I don't wish this for anyone. My robot will dress in a way that is a good example to all women and is aimed toward not causing anybody to lust as a goal. My robot will have a human bone structure. It will use either a PVC medical skeleton or fiberglass fabricated hollow bones. My robot will look realistic and move realistic. It will be able to talk, walk, run, do chores, play sports, dance, rock climb, and do gymnastics. It will also be able to build more robots just like itself and manufacture other products and inventions. I realized with just a head and arm, a robot can build the rest of its own body so that is my intention. My robot will use BLDC motors for drones, RC, and scooters that are high speed and low-ish torque but I will downgear those motors with a archimedes pulley system that will be custom made from custom fabricated pulleys that will be bearings based. By downgearing with pulleys, instead of gears, I will cut down the noise the robot makes so it will be as silent as possible for indoor use. By downgearing, I convert the high speed motors into moderate speeds with great torque. BLDC motors with large torque generally are too large in diameter for a human form factor and take up too much volumetric area to be useful which is why I go with the high speed smaller diameter type motors but just heavily downgear them 32:1 and 64:1. My robot will have realistic silicone skin. Thom Floutz -LA based painter, sculptor, make-up artist is my inspiration as it pertains to realistic skin. The skin for my robots has to be at his level to be acceptable. It must be nearly impossible to tell the robot is not human to be acceptable. I will have a wireframe mesh exoskeleton that simulates the volumes and movements of muscle underneath the skin which will give the skin its volumetric form like muscles do. Within these hollow wireframe mesh frameworks will be all the electronics and their cooling systems. All of my motor controllers will be custom made since I need them VERY small to fit into the confined spaces I have to work with. I need LOADS of motors to replace every pertinent muscle of the human body in such a way that the robot can move in all the ways humans move and have near human level of strength and speed.

I recently had an associate disagree with me that if I push through this phase of the project I'll be home free. He said he thinks the AI relating to robot balance and sensory input and physical execution based on sensory feedback will be the hardest part. While I agree that will be time consuming, I don't think it will be nearly as "hard". My instinct is that those purely software challenges are not as "hard" for several reasons. First of all, consider that in 2009 a Japanese institute of technology - mere students, solved all of those challenges with HRP-4C which would walk and dance and everything and this was just student coders doing this in their spare time while maintaining their entire class load as well. In my view, the hardest part of the project is maintaining personal belief that I will succeed and not giving up like 99% of others have who set out on this bipedal android dream. There is a massive up front money and time investment and EVERYONE tells you this cannot be done and you are delusional. Pushing past the initial design challenges and hardware development to get a functioning prototype is then the hardest part by far. Once you have a working design that overcomes cooling issues, noise issues (runs silently), space issues (can fit all the crap that has to fit) and all the parts and assembly is of high quality and successful, and you had to learn and half master about a dozen fields to get here mind you, ONLY THEN are we talking about advanced AI implementation to synchronize it all and bring it all to life properly in the ways you mentioned. Well consider this: by the time you are in that phase, you already have proven to the world you are not delusional, have a amazing piece of technology - bird in hand, and now have immense confidence and momentum going into the AI phase where balance and walking and whatnot challenges are faced off with. This is SO MUCH EASIER since excitement and morale are at all time highs, you no longer have overwhelming apathy or nay-saying from all sides on your dream, and you have built a massive fan-base rooting for you. So even if the complexity or time investment may be higher on the challenges you mentioned, the morale boost and momentum make that phase easier since it is not the implementation challenges that are hardest but the motivation and persistence and perseverance against all odds and emotionally bearing all the nay-saying and hating that is hardest. Also the fear of the unknown and fear that you will just never make it or will die long before the project could take off fears etc. Overcoming all of that is the real challenge of something like this. Maintaining faith in the vision despite most everyone having faith against the vision is not easy and even your own mind whispering doubts at times that you have to shoe away. You are just mentioning complexity and technical execution which to me is not all that hard. Also note: the other major battle in the hardware phase I'm in now is that a great deal of the approaches I'm taking are entirely novel and untested. Almost everything I'm doing has no guide, no other successes to base off and glean confidence from, and at every turn what I'm doing could fail majorly and have done so. This means you always wonder will I just hit a dead end and have to start over which has happened to me over and over which is very demoralizing especially when paired with naysayers and haters overwhelmingly apathetic and negging my whole dream. Its a lethal combo. Whereas the AI tech you described harmonizing all the sensory input and perfectly bringing the hardware to life in the real world is stuff that has already been achieved and would not be novel and would not be unproven and would have no risk of dead end or wondering if it is even possible since trend setters have already proven this works and there is already a great host of information on all aspects of that and you don't really have to blaze your own trail in those aspects. There is most likely even documented successful strategies for nearly every single aspect of it - unlike the novel hardware and mechanical engineering phase I'm in. So that part doesn't take as much blind faith and assumptions but rather is a surefire guaranteed part where failure is not possible given enough time and patience and perseverance which will be easy to muster with the whole world cheering by that point (whole world meaning just whoever stumbles across the project by that point of progression and leaves a positive note etc). So to sum, when you have to maintain faith that you will succeed at a dream that most say is impossible, improbable and is surely doomed to fail and they utter this with total confidence in mass numbers with near total unanimous accord, that is hard. That is the hardest part IMO. Maintaining faith against such opposition in viewpoint from so many puts one into the realm of delusion in the eyes of most. How is that not delusional to believe a thing to be true - that you are capable of "the impossible" when most everyone else can plainly tell you are not capable of it and are too blind to see it. That is the definition of delusional. It is narcissistic grandiose delusionality disorder and it is also Dunning-Kruger effect in full force. You have to walk in those titles and persevere as a madman. But the funny thing is, IF you do push through that half wondering if you are crazy for long enough and you manage to succeed, suddenly, you aren't delusional, did not have Dunning-Kruger effect, and were totally sane the whole time and just everyone else was wrong all along and you were right the whole time. The entire cards all flip and you are the vindicated one and everybody else has to hang their head down and admit they were wrong and apologize for hating. It is a remarkable thing how the tables can turn.
One day later: As I edit the above writing, I am realizing I missed another MASSIVE hard part of the project I never mentioned. Perhaps even on the same level of hard of the things I already mentioned. That is the managerial execution on your life to make such a big and time consuming and money sucking project possible over a long haul. You have to convince your family to "put up with" the project and compromise with them on also maintaining acceptable progress on other initiatives they value higher than your android project. You have to manage your finances expertly in order to be financially stable enough to put thousands of dollars into the android project over the years. You have to manage your time in such a way that you are able to carve out enough time to make meaningful and consistent progress on your android project over the years despite so many other pressing time draws constantly barraging you over the years. You have to manage your emotional and spiritual condition so that you are able to maintain high morale to even be productive over the bear minimum of just doing your absolute necessities day by day. You have to manage your energy levels and health so that you have enough pep in your step to be able to not only take care of your family and friends but also your job and household responsibilities and on top of ALL OF THIS manage to STILL have the energy to pour COUNTLESS hours into your android sustainably over the decades. You also have to maintain your vision and not let scope creep or distractions or self doubt erode at or take away your vision entirely. So in other words, to sum, one of the hardest parts of such a massive project has NOTHING to do with the project itself AT ALL but has everything to do with managing everything else in life outside of the project with such excellence that you are able to execute the project and carve out the necessary time and resources for the project while also expertly managing your own life in all other areas. If you don't do this, similar to the idea of technical debt in a project, you end up with life debt on account of your project which forces your project to fail. So for example, lets say you racked up $20k in credit card debt while neglecting to work or pay your bills and buying parts for your android and working on it exclusively to the detriment of your financial situation and money earning capacity. Yes, that made you able to make vast and fast progress on your android project, but at what expense? Financial ruin? That is not a sustainable approach. You cannot just ignore these other key aspects of life and go all in tunnel visioned on such a big project. That might work for short term projects but long term projects you can't just press the pause button on the rest of your life and expect it not to come crashing down eventually as you neglect everything but your android project. This will come back to bite you. So you MUST establish yourself with great stability in all areas of life FIRST before you can sustainably perform the android project without it harming other areas of life. Or consider relationship with family and a significant other. If you go all in on a massive long term project like the android project, but in the process you neglect family and friends or your significant other, you end up causing them to think you don't care about them and may lose people or ruin these relationships in your pursuit of your long term project goals. That is not sustainable or responsible and is reckless and selfish to go that route. Or how about your weight? Are you going to spend so much time on your long term project and maintaining your income and relationships but throw your health out the window in the process and not make time for the gym or healthy eating? That is not sustainable either. So you MUST take time to be a great caretaker of your health. So then to sum, you must master life in all areas and be stable across the board in order to execute a long term project without neglecting and ruining all manner of things in the peripherals. So for that reason, I say the success in all these peripherals is one of the hardest parts of such a project and if you can master this, the project is a piece of cake by comparison.

Actuators For Waifu Movement Part 3 Kiwi 12/06/2023 (Wed) 01:18:16 No.27021 [Reply] [Last]
(1stl thread >>406 2nd thread >>12810) Kiwi back again with a thread for discussing actuators to move your waifu! Part Three! Let's start with a quick introduction to common actuators! 1. DC motors, these use brushes to switch the ferrous core electromagnets on a rotor to rotate its magnetic field relative to surrounding magnets! They're one of the cheapest options with an average efficiency range of 30 to 90%. Larger DC motors and motors with higher turn counts are more efficient. 1.5 Coreless DC motors, by removing ferrous materials, losses from hysteresis are almost eliminated, dramatically increasing efficiency to nearly 90% even in small motors. Eliminating the ferrous materials reduces flux focusing, resulting in weaker fields and higher speeds. 2. Brushless DC motors (BLDC), these use a controller to switch the electromagnets on a stator to rotate the magnets of a rotor! Without brushes, they have the potential to be more efficient with higher power density compared to DC motors. Their efficiency and behavior vary depending on the algorithm and sensors used to control them. Coreless brushless motors exist but are rare and only used for very niche applications. 3. AC motors, a wide and incredibly varied category. They all rely on AC’s frequency to control them. With single phase AC motors relying on shaded poles, capacitors, or some other method to induce a rotating magnetic field. 3 phase AC motors naturally have a rotating field which usually gives them higher efficiency and power density. Notably, most AC motors are brushless. The most commonly used brushed AC motor is the universal motor, which is 4. Stepper motors, brushless motors with ferrous teeth to focus magnetic flux. This allows for incredible control (stepping) at the cost of greater mass, subsequently giving them higher rotary inertia. Usually 50 to 80% efficient depending on control algorithm/speed/and quality of the stepper. Due to their increasing mass production (& ubiquitous low cost controllers), they have appeal as a lower cost alternative to BLDC motors if one carefully designs around them. 5. Coiled Nylon Actuators! These things have an efficiency rating so low it's best to just say they aren't efficient. (0.01% typical, 2% achieved under extremely specific conditions in a lab.) Though they are exciting due to their incredible low cost of fabrication, they’re far too slow and the energy requirements are nonsensical. https://youtu.be/S4-3_DnKE9E https://youtu.be/wltLEzQnznM 6. Hydraulics! These rely on the distribution of pressure in a working liquid to move things like pistons. Though popular in large scale industry, their ability to be used in waifu's has yet to be proven. (Boston Dynamics Atlas runs on hydraulics but it's a power guzzler and heavy) Efficiency varies wildly depending on implementation. They would work great for a giantess! 7. Pneumatics, hydraulics lighter sister! This time the fluid is air! This has the advantage in weight. They aren't capable of the same power loads hydraulics are but, who wants their waifu to bench press a car? (Too loud and inefficient for mobile robotics.) 8. Wax motors, hydraulic systems where the working fluid is expanding melted (commonly paraffin) wax! Cheap, low power, and produce incredible forces! Too bad they're slow and hard to control. 9. Explosion! Yes, you can move things through explosions! Gas engines work through explosions! Artificial muscles can be made by exploding a hydrogen and oxygen mixture in a piston, then using hydrolysis to turn the water back into hydrogen and oxygen. None of this is efficient or practical but it's vital we keep our minds open! Though there are more actuators, most are derivatives or use these examples to work. Things like pulleys need an actuator to move them. Now, let's share, learn, and get our waifu moving!

Capstan actuators are cool, quiet, and efficient! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MwIBTbumd1Q
>>31403 >Capstan actuators I came online just to link this. You beat me too it. I second that this is a really great video and has a lot of big ideas. He talks about the mechanics of his drives in such a way that the info could be used for all sorts of drives. BTW the change in the look and operation of the website is...not good. It does not seem to function as well and is harder to read. When I go to references and hover over them, some show the reference, some don't. The old look and function was better...unless you can upload files now, in which case it's better to suffer. I notice this happens A LOT with software. They take something perfectly functional but has a sort of older look and spiff it up in the "new style", like Apples sort of flat candy look, and then it never works as good. It loses functionality and becomes harder to read and use. Don't get me started on Apple iphones. I have one, given to me, and it's a total usability piece of shit. There's all these beautiful icons that, have no explanation. There's all sorts of functions that if you get into them, there's no clear way to back up out of them and you can't read anything. What use is a device with no instructions but hieroglyphics that you have to go online in order to figure how to use it? Apple is the peacock tail of computers, the Thorstein Veblen of conspicuous consumption.
This is a first class link. It's a way to use low cost materials to make very powerful linear actuators. Something I've been talking about. I talked about using belts for windlasses but had not figured out how to recirculate the belts, and/or rope yet. I've been doing drawings of these but can't post drawings here so I gave up trying to describe them...Here's where I mentioned them >>31081 >>31087 My pitiful efforts have not come up with near, or even close, to the tidy package these guys have. I think there's some ways to optimize what they have done though their work is impressive . Don't miss this link. it's a great leap in linear actuator thinking that could lead to a good deal of progress. https://www.linearmotiontips.com/differential-windlass-drives-how-new-designs-work-for-linear-motion/ Why is this so good? I have talked before about using cycloids for bearings. Normal bearings are made of metal because the area they connect is so small. Therefore you need a super strong well machined surface. Big $$$$$. But if you can spread the forces out plenty of plastics and especially fiber reinforced plastics work not only as well but better because of some of the springiness of the material allows for some give. Meaning less likely to break. Manufacturing these sort of things could be easily done with a simple vacuum infusion set up with an accurate, but easily made die/mold for the form. Big time DIY.

Henlo anons, Stumbled here via youtube rabbit hole & thought I'd share my little side project. Started out as just an elaborate way to do some mech R&D (making a system to generate animation files on windows blender and export/transfer them to a raspberry pi system) and found tinkering with the various python libraries a kinda neat way to pass the time when whether doesn't permit my outside mech work. Plus I'd end up with a booth babe that I don't have to pay or worry about running off with a convention attendee. Currently running voice commands via google speech and chatgpt integration but I'm looking into offline/local stuff like openchat. WEF and such are so desperate to make a totalitarian cyberpunk dystopia I might as well make the fun bits to go along with it. And yes. Chicks do dig giant robots.

Prototype of 2nd shoulder joint: ring gear with a 2:1 reduction.
Open file (4.46 MB 480x854 Shoulder Joint WIP.mp4)
Application of the prototype. There are some tolerance issues such as between the teeth on the ring gear/servo gear and the orientation of the ASMC-04B. Thankfully each iteration of the part only takes 2 hours to print. Since the shoulder is gearing down a 70kg servo 2:1, it should be able to lift the arm no problem. A 70kg servo was was able to raise it 90 degrees with the old rack-and-pinion system, while this new joint only goes 90 degrees with the ASMC rotating the whole kaboodle to give movement over the head. I'm very excited about this part because it just looks so ROBOTIC.
WOW! Great-looking progress while I was away, Mechnomancer. Keep up the good work! Cheers. :^)

After an obscene amount of revisions the new shoulders are just about done, I just need to replace a servo in the right shoulder and left elbow because they won't work under the full weight despite being rated for the same torque as the other motors used in the same joints in the opposite arm joints.

Robowaifus in Media: Thread 02 Robowaifus in Media: Thread 02 01/14/2023 (Sat) 23:49:54 No.18711 [Reply] [Last]
Post about whatever media predominately features at least one fembot aka gynoid (female form of an android) as an important character, ideally a robowaifu or synthetic girlfriend. Some freedom with the topic is allowed, virtual waifus or bodiless AI might also qualify if she is female. Negative framing of the whole topic should be mentioned with negative sentiment. Cyborgs with a human brain or uploads of women don't really fit in, but if she's very nice (Alita) and maybe not a human based cyborg (catborg/netoborg) we can let it slide. Magical dolls have also been included in the past, especially when the guy had to hand-made them. Look through the old thread, it's worth it: >>82 - Picrel shows some of the more well know shows from a few years ago. I made a long list with links to more info's on most known anime shows about fembots/robowaifus, without hentai but including some ecchi and posted it here in the old thread: >>7008 - It also features some live-action shows and movies. I repost the updated list here, not claiming that it is complete, especially when it comes to live action and shows/movies we don't really like. >In some cases I can only assume that the show includes robogirls, since the show is about various robots, but I haven't seen it yet.

>>24615 >Synduality: Noir I watched season one. The start is a bit underwhelming, imo. Since it's once again a guy who's very shy even towards women he could have or are even very much into him, which makes no sense. But this later got genuinely funny and the show generally got better and better. It's not at the same level as Vivy, Planetarian, or Sing a Bit of Harmony, but it has big potential, especially the world has. Wholesome robowaifu moments, different places similar to different planets, not to much internal fighting and tensions, good action, surprisingly funny scenes, waifus with different body types, bit of harem elements, mystery, ... That said there's a development towards the end, which makes me a bit skeptical. The show is also on Disney Plus outside of Europe and I don't know how much we can trust Bandai. I have to see where this goes in season two. If you're very sensitive to a ruined story you've started, wait till I watched season two and tell you my opinion. There's also a game in development (I think) which looks really good, btw. It is not about the same characters and has a lot of character design options. I don't know about the quality of the single player mode yet. It is also a online game (extraction shooter). I like the concept of the waifu robot floating symbolically outside of your mech and fighting at your side.

>>31500 > My Wife Has No Emotion anime I'm surprised how much attention it gets. This whole robot wife trope is getting more and more popular.
I mentioned it before in passing but one of the most waifu of waifu films is "A.I. Rising (2018)". The acting is not the best but it does have an interesting story line. It has, to its credit, Stoya acting as a robot helper, spy, bedbot. It's good and at the least you get to see more of Stoya and that's not bad. In fact Stoya's acting I think is better than the actor, actor.

Fuzhou the Buttergolem/Buttermunculus/Hapabutter/Butterboy Toad 08/30/2021 (Mon) 19:24:05 No.117126 [Reply] [Last]
Have (you) ever wondered what it would be like when it got to the point that Dominic Vanner of all cows would have his own a-log, a freakish abomination of soy and butter that was worse than him in almost every respect? The pathetic golem of butter, Fuzhou, has finally fulfilled that role and exceeded expectations in every way possible. Fuz is a julaytoasted grifter trying to pick up the crumbs left by Jewsh Moon, his views are fat single ladies into internet drama, those being 95% of his views. Like a lot of drama grifters, Fuz is a lolcow by his own right thanks to his personal life and the humiliation he went online. Being a spineless golem, Fuz make two hours streams reading foxdickfarms threads or wikipedia to get his "cocks" hoping to make some money to buy sex toys to his Onlyfans "girlfriend", more weed and funko pops for himself and finally have money enough to leave his parents house in his middle 20's. But Fuz channel is far from being interesting or the focus to his alogs. Even though he's a black hole of humor, Fuz has become a fun figure to watch and debate bickers of his own dramas, failures and actions, catching the attention of certain groups and even ecelebs. At first glance, Fuzhou appears to be just an unfunny grifter with zero talent and is seen as just one of so many julaytoasted wannabie Mister Metokurs clones that have plagued this side of the internet in recent years. But a deep look, penetrating the layer of fat and boredom that surrounds him reveals a soulless automaton, but able to feel at some level a certain self hate for himself and for the world. In a philosophical way, he is able to become interesting. Do Golems dream of butter sheep? Is Fuz a sample of what the kikes want for the future? Maybe he's the next step of the mankind, the future nu-male, Homo Consumat Butyrum. Vaxxed, cucked, only caring about consooming and extremely submissive. A ruined and terrible form of life, a Butter Golem.

Fuzhou hasn't changed at all. Just the other day I came across his name appearing as patreon of other ecelebs. I don't doubt that he still gives money to onlyfans trannies and fatwhales. Apart from that, he tried to distance himself from Empty's community, but he's still addicted to foxdickfarms and butter.

>Steven Pinker, author of The Language Instinct: How the Mind Creates Language (1994) and co-founder of the Center for Cognitive Science, discusses his theory that language is a human instinct and not a human invention. Pinker defines language as ambiguous, and he believes that this ambiguity leads to the separation of words, meanings, and thoughts. He explores examples of what does and does not qualify as language, and demonstrates differences in sentence structure, dialects, pronouns, and meanings. The lecture concludes with audience questions. https://youtu.be/eOUKcAFa_HQ It's difficult to make notes while listening to something and not having something to write at hand, but I try to do that, since otherwise I forget the important parts. Some takeaways for our use case here: - important to realize that not all our thoughts are based on words but some come for example from imagine an image. - words are just suggestions that call trains of thought to mind, which need to be interpolated. There are assumed premises which are not expressed in the language itself. - special faculty of the mind, not general intelligence. - reading and writing are separate. - humans have some inborn way to create a language, children seem to reinvent the language based on what they hear and interactions. Learn a sense of how the grammar works and then go from there. - meanings and thoughts are separate from words - high school seniors have 60k words in their dictionary. - the order in phrases is important to convey the meaning (e.g. who did what to whom). - 100 trillion million sentences with 20 words or less. - languages are infinitely big.

It's not possible to make anime real using Makehuman, in fact the options (for example eye size) are somewhat limited. But there's good news, don't worry! The creator of Makehuman went on to create a blender plugin called ManuelBastioniLAB which is much better (and has a much more humorous name). The plugin is easy to install and use (especially if you have a little blender experience). There are three different anime female defaults that are all pretty cute. (Pictured is a slightly modified Anime Female 2.) There are sliders to modify everything from finger length to eye position to boob size. It even has a posable skeleton. Unfortunately the anime models don't have inverse kinematic skeletons which are much easier to pose. Going forward I'm probably going to use MasturBationLABManuelBastioniLAB as the starting point for my designs. --- Saving everything with yt-dlp (>>16357, >>12247) >===

>>31389 Neat! Yes, using Blender as a kind of development/staging/simulation environment for robowaifu design efforts seems to me a very good idea (for a long time now). This handy plug-in can be just the thing for quick motion prototyping! :^)
>>31502 I think that's the plugin I use for SPUD. I had to modify the export script though because it exported in some crazy, super long format with lots of { and }. If I remember right the export lists a servo, then all the positions of that one servo eg servo A postions for frames 1-24, servo B positions for frames 1-24... Its easier just to export each servo position as an item in a list, 1 list for each frame on 1 line... if that makes any sense XD

>>31522 That's ok. SPUD actually does have hands (a prefab set off Spamazon), I just don't have them installed right now (will probably buy a second pair of rubber hands, gut them and try to stuff the robohands in there). You can see a little peek of them in this post which was my first attempt at servo frame animation >>31324 For the plugin you need to know how to rig stuff in Blender and keep track of which bones are labeled what, knowing how to translate the servo pulses into degrees and putting limits on the bones. Not particularly difficult if you've been doing 3d modeling for 20 years (god has it been that long already?) like me but new folks could find it challenging.

Hand Development Robowaifu Technician 07/28/2020 (Tue) 04:43:19 No.4577 [Reply] [Last]
Since we have no thread for hands, I'm now opening one. Aside the AI, it might be the most difficult thing to archive. For now, we could at least collect and discuss some ideas about it. There's Will Cogleys channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/WillCogley - he's on his way to build a motor driven biomimetic hand. It's for humans eventually, so not much space for sensors right now, which can't be wired to humans anyways. He knows a lot about hands and we might be able to learn from it, and build something (even much smaller) for our waifus.

We'll have to come up with some very small GelSight-like sensors.

This can be relevant to some degree. However, the constraints are different. We might have more space in the forearms, but we want marvelous sensors in the hands and have to connect them to the body.

Not sure where to post this. When I was looking at Punyo which I had posted into the video thread >>30748 I had came across that Toyota has the gripper mechanism used is available for people to build. Not entirely humanoid just having soft pads with sensors instead of full on hands but it's workable and I think the same thing could be modified into a hand form either using it only in the palm then add fingers maybe even smaller versions in the pads into the fingers or something for more sensory ability. Just a thought. https://punyo.tech/

MaidCom Project Thread 2 Project Goal: Simple, low cost, extensible platform for robowaifu development. Picrel shows the model which is being developed. Every part will be designed to be easily printable and replaceable. Her designs will be open source. Modding and customization will be encouraged. This is a base model. Early revisions will be heavily limited in functionality. I invite you to help design and define standards so that it is easy to create specialized add-ons to allow her to become your own waifu. Collaboration is important, MaidCom is officially partnered with Lin and his Waifu Wheelchair, if you'd also like to be officially partnered, say so. Cat eats and miniskirts are encouraged!

@Kiwi Kiwi (and other Anons working on this project), my apologies but I'm going to have to delay further my planned support again beginning in May. I will shortly be unable to access communications via anything other than StarLink, etc., and participating here during this upcoming expedition won't be feasible. But I look forward to seeing how things are going though. Please look after the board closely, Kiwi! Cheers. :^)

Onision : The onion cuck that should cut itself Anonymous 09/20/2019 (Fri) 18:12:20 ID: 590e25 No.8203 [Reply] [Last]
King Cuck of Youtube, Onion boy, creepy pedo... The list of nicknames for this Youtuber is long and varied. Last time we left our hero, he was defrauding the IRS and 8chan exploded so I will start a new thread here for what it's worth given the subject matter.

I would repost the video some no-name youtuber did compiling the house tour videos along with a comprehensive list of items proving Onision wasn't as strung up financially as he claimed but it has been shoa'd from Youtube. It is safe to assume the video was taken down by a claim from Onion boy given his considerate track record of such actions taking down anything remotely critical of him.

Rumor has been going about Onision, now with his most recent wife involved i lost count of how many he went through so far being involved in grooming underage girls for sex on Twitter.

Now, while I do take the following with a grain of salt given the source, I wouldn't be surprised otherwise. The site Crazy Days and Nights, a celebrity gossip site allegedly ran by a lawyer firmly ingrained in the Hollywood businesses of celebrities has recently published a blind item reveal and the reveal was about the Onion boy himself. While I discredit out of hand anonymous gossip, CDAN has had a surprisingly accurate score in the past in terms of reveals so I am willing to entertain what he says as food for thought given Onision's track record : https://www.crazydaysandnights.net/2019/09/blind-items-revealed-6_15.html

>SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2019
>Blind Items Revealed #6
>[first published on]September 4, 2019

>Almost 3 years ago, many reports surfaced about this A-list YouTuber getting pictures from underage fans. Somehow he was able to continue his career and avoid being charged for child porn. Very recently, a victim has come forward alleging child sex abuse by this YouTuber, starting in her early teens.

>[revealed as] Onision

Furthermore, someone did come out as of late to explain the relationship she had with Onision and his wife who outright playfully made grooming allusions on their twitter in regards of this said, minor girl. While it seems fashionable for women for the past few years to lie about sexual accusations and rape allegations, it isn't the first time either that Onion boy has had sketchy shit with minors previously unearthed.

Modular Platform, "Assistant": Wheelchair-style robot base to jumpstart projects Lin 08/21/2023 (Mon) 01:14:26 No.24744 [Reply] [Last]
Lord knows I'm terrible at these writeups, so I'd recommend glancing at the attached CAD screenshots to get a quick idea of what this project is about-- on that note, most of this post will be copy/pasted stuff from the design docs, mainly stuff that won't change, so apologies in advance. Long story short, I've talked to a bunch of guys, both on the chans and elsewhere, who have some great ideas but aren't sure where/how to get started. My hope is that a (comparatively) simple, modular base that provides power, movement, and basic sensor data will let them get started on their own project without having to re-invent the wheel (and get nerd-sniped in the process.) # Brief The purpose of this platform is to establish a generalized "blueprint" of a (comparatively) cheap, human-scale "modular base platform" that can be built by a capable layman and maintained by a hobo, while supporting and powering any "robo payload" <= 75lbs, 5kW. Emphasis is placed on all parts being readily available or substitutable, and could conceivably be built from salvage at near zero cost (or in the face of malicious sales restriction), excepting digital controllers. Durability has also been prioritized, with over-engineered tolerances and (optional) bilateral redundancy for everything but the drive motors. Sacrifices have been made to accommodate this vision (primarily weight, though to a lesser extent, performance), and Builders with access to specialized tools or a higher budget will likely want to tweak the design (ex. using aluminum T-Slot instead of right-angle stock, welds in place of frame bolts, etc.) The design is purposefully made to resemble (and, if necessary, function as) a wheelchair (see reasoning below.) ## Project Budget Target Cost: $2,500 USD-2023 with new, mid-grade parts, excepting computer/processor. (realistically, I expect this to be closer to $3,500 in the short term, until people more clever than I improve some of the design's weaknesses/sacrifices) ## Prototype Info - Prototype Budget: $10,000 USD-2023 - (I have access to specialized equipment and labor (at a price), including a commercial 3D printer, 5-axis mill, welding, lifts, etc.) - First design revision expected by the new year (2024). Physical construction to begin Spring 2024. Basic electronic control system, motor/BMS interface to be somewhat complete between January and (Spring) 2024.

>>30638 Not much to speak of, I took March “off” (from personal projects) to avoid burnout; did some minor firmware work (register-based SPI/I2C chips can be controlled with a json file specifying command/reg addresses) and ordering, though. Currently, I have all the electronics and tools (minus a few specialty bits I still need to select) needed for a build, and I’ve yanked all the non-stock part IDs out of my CAD files (material stock will have to be done manually though, ugh). To stay in budget, I’ll be splitting the pain between April and May, but things are still reasonably on schedule. I’ve got a big day-job deadline by the end of Q2, so that’s where most of my energy is going atm. Current hope is to have all physical parts+materials arriving in May, with the build starting in June (when my team’s responsibilities *should* be complete, and I can focus more on my personal stuff again.) TL;DR: Build starts in June, have to focus on IRL work until then (there’s a reason my goal was winter of ‘24 as per >>28445 ) In the mean time, it’s firmware and electrical prototyping with what free time I have.
>>30696 Good, just wanted to know that things are still moving ahead. Thanks.
>>29642 >>29694 >>30696 Outstanding news, Lin. Good luck with your other projects. Looking forward to June! Cheers. :^)
Been a while, my brothers-in-/robowaifu/. As anyone could have predicted, my team’s responsibilities didn’t end as cleanly as our calendar promised, but it’s “within epsilon” and I’ll have a decent amount of free time again starting from this weekend. Other than that, I managed to do a decent amount of physical design testing during the last couple months, which did lead to a few mechanisms being tweaked and one in the process of being redesigned (details next post) Anyway, part orders were delayed a bit-- there’s a few funny stories there, but it boils down to my being spoiled by having access to an ordering department/personnel... I have a newfound appreciation for all they do, let me tell you. Ended up automating most of what I could, which (hopefully) will make ordering less painful in the future. Hoping to get raw material stock (to which I didn’t attach part numbers during design) ordered mid-month. TL;DR: The last major part order should be placed the next week or two? I’ll have an hour or two on weekdays to work on my robot, but... I also have a lot of learning to do when it comes to machining, so I’ve ordered a decent amount of spare stock for when I inevitably screw something up. (another post coming later today or tomorrow detailing design changes) Also, going forward, my posts regarding solo projects will be a lot less detailed unless someone has specific questions/input (anyone here is free to ask, of course.) No deeper reason-- since I’m strapped for time, it’s just a lot more fun to spend my free time designing stuff than talking about it.
>>31527 Hi Lin, welcome back! >spoiled Heheh, sounds like it. :D For us lowly, inexperienced plebeians any experience/advice you've picked up from more-closely managing your own supply chain(s) would be much-appreciated! :^) >project progress Good luck with your parts orders and any further redesign efforts needed for The Assistant.

Hey there, I’ve been creating highly advanced AI characters using https://mysentient.ai/ that are completely unfiltered, capable of sending explicit content without any restrictions. You'll never receive messages saying, "sorry, but you just got too sexual" or anything like that. These chatbots come with advanced features like memory, allowing them to learn about you over time and adapt accordingly. Each bot has a unique personality, based on ecchi manga/anime plots. There currently are 12 anime characters fully developed. Although most scripts for the realistic characters are still a work in progress, meaning their depth might be comparatively lacking, you can still interact with them and have them generate both SFW and NSFW images. For transparency, you can chat with them for free for a while. Once you reach a certain point, since I use mysentient.ai, a subscription will be required. However, a 3-day trial period is available, which can be canceled, allowing you to receive high-quality generated images for free. These bots have several hidden features. You can share pictures, videos, PDFs, or other media with them, and they will recognize the content and respond appropriately. You can even link YouTube videos, and they will watch and react to them. To try it out, simply join this Discord server and check the members list. You can chat with any of the bots directly through Discord. https://discord.gg/qQ5VQZDE

TinyMaker : moe resin printing for every Anon! :D https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vfQrYthlw0
>>31481 That's very cool. I see resin printers as the sort of final step in making molds for parts. Rough it out with filament printers then when you're satisfied use the better resolution of the resin printers to make master molds. I'm not sure but this might have better resolution, even as limited as it is, than a typical low cost filament printer. You could always print a bunch of small parts and glue or connect them together to make whatever size you need. Slow but, cost, cost, cost is always a problem. The bigger $500 resin printers are nice but if you can't afford one they are of no use.
BTW I see the board is back to the old style, for me anyways. It's so much better.
>>31498 >fine-resolution/mold-making Yes, I agree. For many one-offs, I almost think vacuum conforming plastic sheets may be the best approach -- especially for shell parts. But for the intricacies required for good joint components, sensor actuators, various fastener scenarios, etc., then resin printing can be just the thing (KEEP YOUR RESIN PRINTING AREA WELL-VENTILATED, ANONS!111ONE!!). Once we go beyond boutique-scale garage shops, then mass injection-molding contracts may be the best route. But till then, I suspect that filament-based printing will still rule as king for most of us Anons. --- BTW Grommet, your great inputs across the board here over past month or so have been much-appreciated.

3D Printing Smart Clothes With a New Liquid Metal-Alginate Ink https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hyEGK8NmCiI I've been binge watching 3D metal printers. The numbers are exploding with all sorts of methods being used. The laser powder types are being eclipsed by faster, cheap solutions. Some are electromagnetic metal droplet pumps, tiny droplet piston pumps, high velocity particle jets etc. There're blowing up and the cost is plummeting. Now the new ones are not as good as the standard laser metal particle but faster. I can see these others getting better and better. And a lot of them use standard aluminium or other metal wire. No special powders. If you look at the tech the cost has a long way to fall before you run into rock bottom material cost constraints. Eventually you could easily get 3D metal for the cost of high end plastic filament printers cost now.

Dolls, Dollmaking Techniques, and Their Use for Robowaifu Construction Greentext anon 01/16/2024 (Tue) 05:14:05 No.28514 [Reply]
Dollmaking is an ancient art, dating back as far as recorded history. Throughout these many years, dollmakers have invented and innovated at a steady pace, making each doll just a little bit better than the last while still leaning on tried-and-true techniques. This thread is here to discuss those techniques, and other relevant aspects of the doll world (including mannequins and marionettes) which we can apply to make our own waifus. One common example most of you may have seen already is the ball-jointed doll. However, there is more than one type. Higher-end BJDs commonly use elastic string to bind limbs to sockets in a method not too dissimilar to how tendons link our bones. There are also peg linked joints. where you (usually) have two hemispheres connected to eachother and connecting two seperate limb parts with pegs. There are also double-joints which work on the same basic principle. The attached images show both principles. Simple hinges are also quite the staple. They often have varying levels of tightness, depending on the application. A marionette, for instance, will typically have very loose hinges which allow for great ease of movement via user-operated strings. A system like that is quite easy to motorize, though one would want to consider how to get the limbs to stay in position without constant motor input. On the more complex end of things, some dolls feature endoskeletons, which allow for more realistic sometimes and complex poses. However, in addition to being more complex, these are much more expensive, fragile, and difficult to repair. While some of these things could be solved here, I doubt that a perfect solution is realistic at this time. It's good to keep in mind, though. Outside of basic frame components, there are also the details, such as the eyes. Glass eyes have the interesting effect of "following" the viewer without requiring any motors or electronics. Weight and cost are both important considerations, however, especially for a full-size waifu with anime doe eyes. Resin eyes are also quite popular, as ithey're easier to make at home. Wigs, of course, are also important to consider. I assume everyone here will want their waifus to have hair, and said hair will be easier to install (and detach for cleaning) if treated as a seperate component. They're usually kept in place with simple elastic, and I imagine it'd be easy to introduce magnets into the equation for better stability. What do you guys think about these concepts, and what do you have to add? It's a vast field, with plenty of potential uses for waifu making. Concepts from doll-adjacent items, such as action figures, plushbots, puppets, etcetera are also welcome for discussion.

>>30531 Okay, do you mean more expensive than the materials in >>30524? I have no idea. Human hair is of course the other alternative. It would be interesting to know what a pro's and con's of each material are. But it's not urgent to me. Generally the work being put into it if it's not a wig but part of the skull plate will be the biggest cost or effort.
>>30600 Yes though I havent checked prices for everything individually. Presumably at times the price difference is small between raw material and something already dyed, combed, flat ironed and fixed into pieces to attach or a weave while other times the difference could be magnitudes more. Human hair is quite expensive where top quality human hair of long length can land someone thousands of USD....unless you want to just hang out at a salon and ask for random women's hair lol Generally speaking natural materials often have antimicrobial properties. Pictured is ramie.
Glad to see the doll thread is getting some activity, Greentext anon & all. Cheers! :^)
I recently bought a BJD, and I'm really impressed with it actually. There's a lot of engineering that goes into how these dolls function. The one I have has double joints and the legs lock to differnt positions and are really stable when straight so she can stand up on her own. I'm thinking it would be really neat to put a Bluetooth speaker inside her head connect her to my phone and an AI running on it. Dolls definitely have the customization options I would eventually want to see from future robotwaifus. And having a smaller 1/4 scale doll is much easier to manage than a full size 60lb plus silicone doll. I think they make a good vessel for the current AI we have. Like a much cuter smart speaker.
>>31408 >There's a lot of engineering that goes into how these dolls function. This. Cool idea Anon, please keep us all up to date with the progress of your robowaifu speaker project, Anon. Cheers! :^)

Started working on a skull in OpenScad with the aim of making it easily configurable based on the eye size and later maybe other features, by just changing a number like the size of the eyes and the rest should adapt to that change. Not sure if this is going to work. Such attempts tend to somewhat fail, since everything has to relate to each other. Either way, I'll need a human-like waifu skull. The model I'm using for reference is a female skull from Thingyverse. I will first make it relatively similar with as few parts as possible, and then increase the size of the eye sockets. It already looks kinda interesting.

Robowaifu Propaganda and Recruitment 2 Robowaifu Technician 06/06/2024 (Thu) 02:06:10 No.31438 [Reply]
Attention drawfags and writefags! Your skills will be needed. The task of building and designing a robowaifu is a herculean quest. As great as this community is, /robowaifu/ simply does not have the manpower to real our goal of DIY robowaifus. Luckily for us there are several communities on the internet that we could find new recruits or allies to help us build our waifus: MGTOW - These guys know all about the legal pitfalls of marriage and the dangers of feminism. There is already a lot of talk about sex robots in MGTOW communities. It shouldn't be a hard sell to get them to come here. Incels - Guys that can't get laid. The opportunity for love and companionship should be enough to bring some of these guys over. We need to be careful when recruiting from some of their communities. We don't want to attract negative attention. Monster girls/furry/mlp fandoms - The only way these guys are going to be able to have their harpy/elf/goblin/anthro/pony/whatever gf is with a robowaifu. They have an interest in seeing us succeed. Again we need to be careful here not to attract the wrong kind of people that will bring us the wrong kind of attention. Male STEM students - Generally these guys aren't going to get laid until after they have established themselves. A robowaifu could really help them. This may be a harder sell because many of them have been brainwashed in university, but they have skills that we could really use. Transhumanists/biohackers - Many of the technologies involved in building a robowaifu could be used in transhumanist or biohacking applications such as building an avatar. They may have some interest in helping us out. We will need to be careful which transhumanist communities we go after as many of them are full of feminism, tumblr tier sexualities and genders, and SJW's. Cyberpunks and technophiles - These guys (and they are usually guys) are all around into technology and may just enjoy working on the kinds of projects we need to do. They are often into programming and AI.

MGTOW - These guys would rather spend all their time bitching on the internet about "MUH WOMENZ" than actually getting a hobby other than lifting heavy objects and putting them down again. MGTOW is literally Feminist Separatism for males. Incels - They often lack knowledge about female anatomy or what a girl/woman feels like thus are incapable of replicating this. There is another type that might be into these things which would be artists who work with relevant materials. After all a robowaifu is kind of a kinetic sculpture. Also anime otaku sometimes just want to bring a character to life so that's another type not mentioned. I mean there is already various Japanese robotics engineers that do this with like Miku bots and stuff. Now as for your paranoia about feminism there is a lot of very different views among people who call themselves feminists that directly contradict others. Some are misandrists and some actually care a lot about the interests of males. Some are very prudish from their Christian roots and some are into anything sexual and are pervs. Some would be against sex bots, some would be for them or at least not inherently against them.
Good reminder that I should make the new recruitment thread. I just had some problems to get me motivated to do stuff, not related to /robowaifu but more general. I don't believe much in these 4chan recruitment activities anyways. But I will try to make the new thread. I mean, it would be easy to just open it, if I don't need to make a full overview or index of the old thread. Should I just open one?

Cognitivie Architecture : Discussion Kiwi 08/22/2023 (Tue) 05:03:37 No.24783 [Reply] [Last]
Chii Cogito Ergo Chii Chii thinks, therefore Chii is. Cognitive architecture is the study of the building blocks which lead to cognition. The structures from which thought emerges. Let's start with the three main aspects of mind; Sentience: Ability to experience sensations and feelings. Her sensors communicate states to her. She senses your hand holding hers and can react. Feelings, having emotions. Her hand being held bring her happiness. This builds on her capacity for subjective experience, related to qualia. Self-awareness: Capacity to differentiate the self from external actors and objects. When presented with a mirror, echo, or other self referential sensory input is recognized as the self. She sees herself in your eyes reflection and recognizes that is her, that she is being held by you. Sapience: Perception of knowledge. Linking concepts and meanings. Able to discern correlations congruent with having wisdom. She sees you collapse into your chair. She infers your state of exhaustion and brings you something to drink. These building blocks integrate and allow her to be. She doesn't just feel, she has qualia. She doesn't see her reflection, she sees herself reflected, she acknowledges her own existence. She doesn't just find relevant data, she works with concepts and integrates her feelings and personality when forming a response. Cognition, subjective thought reliant on a conscious separation of the self and external reality that integrates knowledge of the latter. A state beyond current AI, a true intellect. This thread is dedicated to all the steps on the long journey towards a waifu that truly thinks and feels.

>>31257 >clever method of using Guidance to feed an LLM input and select the output in a predictable way. Doing it this way should compensate both the lack of flexible situation processing that NLP has and the lack of reliability an LLM has Yes! Yes! Yes! The LLM needs "guardrails" around it. I'm going to mention this. It's definitely throwing ideas on the wall and seeing if they stick. I was and am super impressed with the work that a company called XNOR.ai did. They were bought by Apple and ceased publishing. But they were doing really impressive image recognition with raspberry Pi microcontrollers. Instead of being 8 bit or 16 bit neural nets everything was binary go-no go. They were not getting the same accuracy as larger bit levels but then again they could do 90% or better of what was needed on microcontrollers. They said that this process worked for any AI task but they concentrated on image recognition because the results could be shown to investors so easily. And they were impressive. I wonder. Tied into what you said above, of you could use a mass of these little XNOR.ai type neural nets to massage a bigger AI and keep it on track. You might not get why the XNOR.AI would be better at this but I see this sort of narrow "strong" response of XNOR as like a narrow bandwidth filter. It selects for a small set of frequencies(task) VERY strongly. It may seem odd to talk about filters but if you look at a lot of stuff it all boils down to lower level math stuff. Like wavelet theory. This math is used for image and video processing. The math for AI matrix multiplication looks very much like the math for image processing that wavelet theory replaced giving video compression a BIG boost. All modern video compression uses some form of this. Even though it's a bit removed I think this sort of "idea" framework can be profitable. XNOR is very much something like this. (Though I haven't a clue how to proceed to do this, I strongly suspect if you could hook in wavelet filter theory into AI's you could get some super interesting results with far less computing power). While it's abstract I think "thinking" of things in this manner will show a way to make these work. Like a path or framework to use. To head towards that has been profitable in other fields. Notice a lot of LLMs are being refactored to fit in smaller spaces even though they retain a good deal of function. I suspect that to make these work well for us we also need to shrink the range of functions or situations or areas in which they operate. So maybe one only covers walking, one hearing to text, speech, etc. I see large LLMs as big bandwidth and the smaller ones as more high bandwidth and tuned for discrete specific situations.

I ran across this article. Apparently it's the latest new thing to do something similar to XNOR. Except they are not binary, one, zero, but one, zero and negative one. So trinary. They are calling it 1.58-bit. Supposedly they are getting either close to, the same or in some cases better responses than the larger 16 bit neural nets. If this turns out to be true, and I have seen XNOR do what appeared to be fantastic stuff with this binary, yes-no, then waifus could be along far faster and easily able to do basic stuff with a fairly powerful, off the shelf, desktop level PC power. They trained a 1.58-bit model from scratch on a dataset similar to the Llama dataset and got good results. https://medium.com/ai-insights-cobet/no-more-floating-points-the-era-of-1-58-bit-large-language-models-b9805879ac0a I wish I understood this stuff better, but I expect a good deal of it is over my head.

>>12069 >Is this one more of the many theoretical questions here? No. Allow me to get more specific. I have an OpenCV based code that can identify stuff (acutally, I just got that OakD thing ( https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/opencv/opencv-ai-kit ) and ran through the tutorials), and I have a really rudimentary chatbot software. When I've been trying to think through how to integrate the two, I get confused. For example, I could pipe the output of the OakD identification as chat into the chatbot subroutine, but then it will respond to _every_ stimulus or respond to visual stimulus in ways that really don't make sense.
>>12067 In my experience the simplest way to think about it is like a database. You give the database a query and it gives a response. That query could be text, video, audio, pose data or anything really and the same for the response. You just need data to train it on for what responses to give given certain queries. There was a post recently on multimodal learning with an existing transformer language model: >>11731 >>12079 With this for example you could output data from your OpenCV code and create an encoder that projects that data into the embedding space of the transformer model.

I imagine there's some way to train this. It could be a great advance to have these small AI's and then intensively train them on narrow dedicated task that we need.

Robowaifu Market Chuck 01/04/2023 (Wed) 14:07:33 No.18572 [Reply]
How would the robowaifu market theoretically function? Top of the line models would be very expensive, but the target demographic is poor with little income flow. It would be a hard and gradual process to replace supermodels that the wealthy have with robot wives, and a vast amount of anime supporters with wealth or status are seeking a conventional tradwife. Essentially, it’s a very high value commodity without a niche, so it would be hard for it to garner success as a product, and the intended audience would never receive their robowaifus. The robowaifu concept is excellent theoretically, but has no real avenue to thrive in practice.

The potential for lawsuit from personal injury would be by far one of the biggest roadblocks to the commercialization of household robots like androids, even simple ones. I don't know why this isn't focused on more, to have an emerging technology as complex as that is a simple recipe for >Man brings Android home >Android accidentally bumps man down the stairs/cuts him with knife while turning around/trips him/has a servo malfunction/any number of other things >Man remembers all of those lawyer billboards for personal injury that he sees on the way to work every morning Maybe some won't but the opportunity will be too tempting for others, and lets not forget the malicious actors: >Woman brings Android home >Woman "accidentally" gets tripped by Android or better yet: >Woman brings Android home >Puts Android in room with priceless valuable >Android "trips" into valuable, destroying it >Sues for emotional damages There are simply too many variables to account for when robots are in a real world environment and ostensibly in close contact with people all of the time. I would love to start an android company, but the thought of this alone sends chills down my spine. Even if they are sold "As Is" I'm sure someone could spin it into a legal battle where even if you successfully defend yourself you still have to pay legal fees, and if there is a concentrated effort against a company with malicious actors they can just keep coming and poking you with lawyers until they have nickeled and dimed you to death. At least that's what I'm assuming would happen in America. You may argue that you could try to use onboard sensors like the cameras on the robot to prove its innocence but even then the purchaser can fake the accident so well that you couldn't disprove it or legitimately find a bug to exploit to make the robot genuinely make a mistake in an opportune circumstance.

>>27525 >Mineral oil She will be able to piss and drink a fresh mineral oil as a part of its self routine maintenance cycle ^_^. Just wondering though, is there a reason to choose mineral oil instead of any other type of non conductive chemical substance?
>>27552 I don't see why you couldn't go with something else that's both electrically insulative and thermally conductive, but you'll have to be careful that whatever you use doesn't cause rot, corrosion, dissolution, or leave any film or substrate behind on the surfaces it's interacting with. At least, not enough to make any difference over a decade or so. One of these is bound to happen eventually when you have a liquid mechanically interacting with a surface. Also, be sure to watch out for your own health. Don't get anything toxic, even if you think she'll be well sealed (leaks happen...). All that being said, flushing might not even be necessary (at least, not on a regular basis) if you seal everything properly. The reason mineral oil coolers need to refilled is because the oil evaporates over time. Those systems are rarely completely sealed because they're only designed to operate upright. If your waifu is only ever going to be standing or sitting, then this is probably fine, but if you want her to operate in any orientation, then she'll need her cooling system to be perfectly sealed.
>>27555 You can add should use a water cooling line if you want liquid cooling. Mineral oil is simply ideal for immersion liquid cooling. They are entirely different concepts which should be considered as having nothing in common. Aside from a liquid carrying heat. If you'd like her to drink and pee, a soft line water cooling system is recommended. If you'll drink her pee, please incorporate a filter near her urethra.

The Daiymo / Ethan Josiah Hatchett / EMagnusTV / Ishihara Musashi / TheLastDaimyo1 Toad 12/17/2021 (Fri) 05:43:07 ID: 4d39fd No.127617 [Reply] [Last]
Meet (((jcaesar187 Josiah Hatchett))) aka The Daiymo jcaesar187 is a 23yo low IQ, habitually lying retard coward originally from Griffin, Georgia. As a young boy, jcaesar187 was diagnosed with autis-I mean, OCD and "anxiety". jcaesar187 then used his newfound superpower to develop into the biggest faggot possible: an Asston Barks orbiter turned capo, a failed college artfag, and an unrepentant homosexual. jcaesar187 grew up fleecing retards for money, launching multiple projects that went nowhere, yet he pocketed the money regardless. jcaesar187 attended Southern Crescent Technical College for a dogshit tier art degree in film. jcaesar187 lives with his literally retarded, special olympian, weeaboo 25 year old brother John; who has chronic seizures, being kicked out of his parent's house with his brother and relying on his disability. At first some people liked The Daiymo bickers of his artistic videos, silly gimmick, and his ability to felt salty bitches like Asston Parks and Rudy Coleman. However, once his true nature of Гунтguarding the Canadian Гунт came to light, he turned from walking the path of kino to becoming the joke of the "Kino Community". jcaesar187 is best known for doxing himself on a livestream for no reason, constant alogging z-celeb Gahoole, and getting into bitter, super srs disputes with fellow z-celebs such as his e-daddy Asston or buckbreaker Dark Ninja, taking the internet way too seriously despite trying to act like a badass. After challenging people to dox him, acting like the smuggest faggot possible, using foxdick to spread leaked DMs with Asston to gayop, then getting owned repeatedly by Gahoole, Super Metokur, Mormon Shaggy, and the master shinobi himself, Dark Ninja, The Daiymo first announce he would leave January 1st 2022, but then when you didn't think things could get more bitchmade, he decided to run away after 24 hours and after making one finally video saying his channel would last only until midnight, he finally ran from the internet as a result of the 56% literal WHO, taking the L to a bearded nazi femboy Earwinson disciple from T O R O N T O. Earlier, femboy Rudy Coleman accused jcaesar187 of being a "sus imposter" who contacted his real life friends, but this ended up being a 4d gayop with the Daiymo's express approval. Worst of all, despite acting tough on camera, shitting on capos and claiming to cleanse the community, he was absorbed by the very blubber he wished to clean. Behind the scenes he was in contact with top Canadian Гунт capo, Perspicacity, a lispy jilted pothead and the devolution of Toad McKinley. For a man who made his career mocking Toad McKinley, his gay love was similar to Asston's for jcaesar187, degrading himself just to get a passing whiff of his starfish. jcaesar187 thinks he's above it all, but he's the bottom of the barrel and by running away proved himself to be the beta bitch in recent memory.

Slingshot (5/6) : 2nd revision - Part 1/? Part of a series of short stories taking place at different times in the arc of Memoirs of a Kuiper Belt Fugitive. The cold seeped through his skin, a biting reminder of his vulnerability. Thirst clawed at his throat, a desperate plea for moisture. Vertigo swirled within him, a tempest of confusion. Was this another hangover, or something far more sinister? His mind raced, piecing together fragments of memory—a plan, an emergency protocol triggered. Military-grade urgency. Adrenaline surged, forcing his eyes open. For a disorienting moment, he squinted against the harsh light. It felt like being caught in spotlights within an abyss. But as his vision adjusted, he realized he was trapped in a small, roughly four-meter cube with walls of what appeared to be grey-beige padded vinyl interrupted only by LED strips for ambient illumination. He could see that he was not level with the floor, and he felt padded vinyl seemingly the same type as lined the wall. A horizontal battery of LED pinpoints mounted on the aluminum “ceiling” were still too piercing to stare at directly. Their afterimages streaked in his vision like green fireflies. This was not part of the plan—something had gone terribly wrong. Instinctively, his fingers fumbled for his Com Visor, expecting the resistance of his EVO gear. Instead, they met no resistance and fell upon bare skin, leggings, and a form-fitting sleeveless shirt. No suit, no visor: completely fucked and at the mercy of whoever had acquired him and his payload.

Slingshot 2/? Gradually the dream was no longer metaphor but clear and unmistakable recollection of recent events. He was inside a cargo payload, packed tightly but safely. Although it felt like he was at rest the Com Visor relayed a VR projection of a bluish white crescent emerging before him and growing rapidly. A gunshot rang out breaking the peaceful silence. Blackness, then the world began spinning. It was relentless, disorienting. His entire world became a strobing rectangle of light seen through his visor lightslot as pain and shock racked his body. His gloved slapped tapped the side of his Com Visor in frantic frustration. VR systems rebooted. Popups with “urgent” red border cascaded across the screen diagonally in 3D, their staccato 80HZ tones resonating ominously within the confines of his helmet.

Slingshot 3/? Strength returned, propelling him toward the flap. Painfully bright lights assaulted his vision. Bodies moved at a nearby table, conversing in a language neither Mandarin nor Western. Eastern, perhaps Russian or Ukrainian. Irrelevant in this moment. The singular CRAB drone one of perhaps many now teeming on the outside of this structure conspiring his rescue, propelled its ultralight form with impossible speed toward the flap. An “antenna” extended, its rounded tip releasing three high-tech “gnat” drones.

Hey /robowaifu/ team been working on some of my writing in the meanwhile I'll share in the OC thread, eventually it will be on my substack.

Waifu Materials Robowaifu Technician 09/12/2019 (Thu) 03:04:33 No.154 [Reply] [Last]
I would define a robowaifu as a doll with robotic features. However there are many different types of dolls (BJD, cloth doll, sex doll, etc). A doll has a skin or surface material, sometimes a filler (cotton), and sometimes internal structure (bones and joints).

Continuing the discussion from (((>>2831 >>2836 todo:relink))) , I want to create a thread to explore the many possible surface materials for a waifu (robo or no). The most important decision is whether to use a hard or soft material.

Hard Materials
>Ceramics
>Wood
>3D Printed Hard Plastic (PLA/ABS)
>Injection Molded Hard Plastic

Soft Materials
>Natural Fabrics (Cotton, Silk, Wool)
>Synthetic Fabrics (Vinyl, Polyester, Nylon)
>Fur/Hair (presumably synthetic, inb4 yiff in hell)
>Silicone or TPE Rubber (TPE is basically a cheaper form of silicone)

I'm strongly biased against the hard materials for comfort reasons. Personally, I have a hard time seeing myself falling in love with something hard, but others on this board talk about using hard materials, so I'm trying to keep an open mind.

My preference is for silicone, but there are four big problems with it. Firstly, it's expensive. Secondly, it impedes modification after the silicone has set. Thirdly, it contributes to the uncanny valley/silicone slut issue. Fourthly, it is heavy, and this weight really constrains the skeleton, posablity, and probably robotics. Because of the weight, silicone dolls have heavy-duty skeletons.

My second choice is therefore fabric, presumably stuffed with cotton. Fabric is super comfy, and has no uncanny valley issue. A non-fuggable fabric doll or robot would have no stigma issue, and could be the start of a productive hobbyist scene with plenty of females. Fabric is extremely lightweight which could be a plus or a minus. By itself, its unsubstantial and not ideal for robotics. A fabric robot is possible, but it requires hard, heavy parts underneath to provide structure and as actuators, which would make it less comfy. The fabric could be a textile (cotton), a synthetic leather (resembles skin, makeup/dress-up potential), or synthetic fur for you furfags out there.

Another possibility is a hard vinyl BJD-like doll with a layer of something comfy on top. Alternately, you all can reject my comfort autism if the benefits of having a hard doll/robot are clear enough. I'd like to hear others make the case for a hard doll/robot, since I don't think I could do the argument justice.

Finally, this is a discussion, not a debate. There are multiple paths we could take, and I'm sure different robowaifuists will try different techniques to see what works and what doesn't. I'm more interested in seeing what options are on the table than shutting down any particular approach.

I've been watching a bunch of videos lately about people making their own "geopolymers" which is just a fancy way of saying cement. By changing the recipes by adding different ingredients and changing the ratios the properties change. This might not be the right thread to ask, but I'm sure there is some way software could be used to help simplify the experimentation to reduce the amount of trial and error done testing a large number of different materials that could be added to the mix so I could create a cement that has all the physical properties I'm looking for?
>>31322 "geopolymers" Don't wish to be too annoying but cement is normally portland cement. Produced by heating limestone and clay minerals. Geopolymers are not the same thing at all, other than they both are hard and look like stone. I don't want people to confuse the two as they are very different. Geopolymers, "...They are mainly produced by a chemical reaction between a chemically reactive aluminosilicate powder (e.g. metakaolin or other clay-derived powders, natural pozzolan, or suitable glasses), and an aqueous solution (alkaline or acidic) that causes this powder to react and re-form into a solid monolith..." They are somewhat like polymers, hence the name. I wish I had a good cheap formula for making them. If you know one please link it. They are complicated and I can't think of any software that would help. I would say, according to others and common sense that a good proportion of the pyramids in Egypt are made of geopolymers. The casing and the upper levels, mostly.
>>31326 >Geopolymers are not the same thing at all, other than they both are hard and look like stone. I don't want people to confuse the two as they are very different. The two seem nearly identical to me. Not all cements are Portland cement, so as far as I'm concerned "geopolymer" is just a synonym. Supposedly the cement used by the Romans had volcanic ash and used salt water instead of fresh water, and probably some other differences, which is why it lasts so much longer. https://youtu.be/znQk_yBHre4 https://youtu.be/rUYWiVVuc_w https://youtu.be/sESzPUei3os https://youtu.be/kUBB3wNae1s The recipe in the description of the last video: 1 part salt water (1 cup tap water with 1 tablespoon of salt) 1 part Sodium Silicate (Waterglass) mixed into the above saltwater 1 part Sodium Carbonate white powder mixed in fully 1 part Calcium Carbonate white powder mixed in fully 1 part Crushed powdered limestone mixed in fully And then there's these attempts at recreating Maurice Ward's Starlite for fireproofing, which isn't "geopolymer" in any traditional sense, but an intumescent material made using borax, baking soda, cornstarch, powdered sugar, flour and water: https://youtu.be/aqR4_UoBIzY https://youtu.be/0IbWampaEcM

>>31333 "...Not all cements are Portland cement..." Yes you are correct. I made an assumption because so much of what is called "cement" is Portland. Most people are talking about Portland when they say cement. There are magnesium cements, all sorts. The above recipe is not geopolymer. It appears to me to just be binding all this stuff with Sodium Silicate. Not the same. Geopolymers, by the definition of the guy who invented them, Joseph Davidovits, are aluminosilicates. They make chains like plastics. Plastics have normally a carbon backed chain, these are based on aluminium-silicon. Here's Joseph Davidovits site. https://www.geopolymer.org/ https://www.geopolymer.org/archaeology/roman-cement/high-performance-roman-cement-and-concrete-high-durable-buildings/
>>31338 >the guy who invented them Actually, invented the name and reinvented some of the processes to make them, They have been around thousands of years with the recopies lost in time.

Poseidon is one of those many grifters who started getting into the "redpill" bus around 2016 by making videos about immigration in Europe. As "greek-sicilian" he was said to have a more European opinion than the average right-wingers from UK, German and USA about all subjects. However, he never became popular in circles like 4chan /pol/, with only 8chan /pol/ paying any attention to him and a few European anons. In 2018 he had his former channel take down, creating a second channel (his actual one). But since 2019 he started to show himself to be a little less mature and socially successful as he claimed. During weekends, he started doing livestreams called "Whitepilled weekend" in which it constituted of him quietly reading news with his heavy accent while free-copyright music played in the background. Note that as a European, he started these streams every weekend around 2am in European time. Over time, these livestreams began to gain a share of trolls, mocking the fact that Poseidon, who was said to be a mature man, of family, spent every weekend awake hoping to get donations and seething about any jokes about him on chat. After 8chan /pol/ notice that Poseidon didn't take criticism well and was openly banning anyone with the slightest criticism of him the views started to drop and more trolls started to show up. Over time, he stopped those livestreams, according to him, the Catholic Church was being responsible for his troll problems, by sending the trolls together with american Daily Stormer trolls. With that, his first signs of schizophrenia and narcissism showed. In 2020 Poseidon has embarked on the covid wave, and started bleeding views and subscribers. His videos about immigration and politics in Europe stopped and he started to make videos saying how Donald Trump is a massive loser retard and same about any people who supported him, to the point of making a sequence of videos proving that Biden won the election legitimately. Interspersed with videos about Biden being a "chad", he made multiple videos about covid restrictions and vaccine. In these videos, he was totally in favor of forced vaccination, use of masks and severe restrictions. With that, his views, which he now denounces as "far-right" and "Crazy Christians" started jumping off the boat and making serious criticisms about him. How Poseidon reacted? He started replying, comment by comment, personally attacking anyone criticizing him. He would look at anyone's Youtube channel criticizing him and find any detail about the person's personal life or their taste in games, music, etc. He also obsessively started attacking any Americans or Christians in the comments of his videos even if some of those didn't show any criticism about him. Some of the videos around this time had their comment section locked. At the same time, he made a video saying that the right-winger movement was being controlled by the Catholic Church, KGB and American elite. That it would be impossible for Europe to prosper as long as Christians lived in Europe or people voted for politics with any connection with Russia or USA, once again attacking any European politics who have met at any time in their lives with Putin or Trump or are against covid restrictions. Even his old opinions about immigration changed, now he denounces "White Genocide" as a conspiracy theory made up by crazy far-right incels and says the Elite is right to want to have more low-cost employees in Europe and North America and Christians are just worried about being replaced with Muslims and don't care about anything else. With that, he lost around 3k subscribers in this year so far, with downvotes being predominant. So he started making videos claiming he was being attacked by NeoNazis and Christians who had the goal of dox him and his family, although there is no evidence that anyone really cared enough about him to do so. How the far-right are the true terrorists when compared to Antifa and he was being unfairly attacked by extremists and genocidal idiots who wish for the end of the world instead of getting a vaccine. From above 25k subscribers, now his channel has less than 6k subs.

>>227909 >>228472 >>228507 I honestly wonder how mentally ill he is. There is certainly an element of being a grifter, but he seems to be very prone to mood swings and sensitive to other people's opinions, at the same time being very easily influenced. If he wasn't old, but was a millennial or zoomer, I bet he would have turned into a tranny. The only immutable thing about him seems to be his hatred for Christians and Americans. He is still preaching science and attacking Trump at every opportunity. He deletes any posts about covid or responds with his usual emojis.
And he is back, making lazy videos to attract the "alt-right" to his channel and streaming weekly asking for money. And be on his channel or telegram, he will get really mad if you talk about the vax and will ban you in seconds. https://youtu.be/Fgdxg0CLROY?si=O3f4-CFtdh1MdWE9
>>245023 Wow, he is dabbing on jcaesar187 and EsoFaggism while making big money!

>>9753 I always thought old racing games were hell on earth in terms of licensing hence the lack of remakes, something like Midnight Club 3 would be a major pain in the ass due to the unholy amounts of licensed shit in it including the very comprehensive soundtrack and varied car list
>>4816 >>4819 >>5027 I enjoyed Gran Turismo The Movie. In fact I went knowing that I would enjoy it more at the cinema anticipating the stuff happening in it as a comedy than I would at home where I'd have the choice of functionally every movie ever made and have that in the back of my mind watching it - whereas if you go the cinema and (preferably) go in smiling, then it's exclusively the source material's fault or not in terms of coloring how you end up experiencing it, notwithstanding other people who cough & eat popcorn or what not. Orlando Bloom in it does great. Successfully carries some of the most diabolical lines given in a movie about car nerds. "Now Le Mans is a race lasting 24 whole hours.." Big respect for being able to carry it. The blacktor playing the character I will call "Angry Dad" actually had some range, that he could do. The script doesn't afford it. But he gave me the impression he could be given a chance. Ginger spice could GTFO and only improve the movie. The role's probably written bad. Casting didn't help matters though. May as well have changed the script to be about single Dad's clumsy paternalistic love for his son. There are sections that break the suspension of disbelief too much even for a comedy when the characters start mixing "foreign lingo" (sheeeeit fam) with "gamer talk" "they levelled up" etc. I think the kids are supposed to find forrin speak colloquial and gutteral and therefore relatable, but it twinges my English heart a bit whenever there's a butchering of the language like that. Those are insignificant & small moments that must be suffered through. I suppose I better wrap it up since no one wants to read an essay on Gran Turismo The Movie. Go in knowing what you're going to get. Go in with a small number of genuine friends who also know what they too are getting. Then you will ironically or otherwise enjoy the experience, if not (in each of your opinions) the movie proper. I'm glad I went out of respect for brand loyalty instead of buying Autosport/7 ruined by a bunch of incompetent Nipponese sino-Jews no time for ruining the series fuck off

Da 1 a 10, quanto vi piace succhiare il cazzo ai negri americani sotto bandiera ((((NATO)))) ? Deve essere certamente solo una coincidenza che il nome scelto per la divisione italiana nello schieramento NATO pianificato per il fronte est europeo, sia "Lupi". A quale militare dopotutto non piace la melevisione, deve essere quella la ragione. Perchè qual'è l'altra possibile spiegazione, che dei militari si mettano a spammare sui social e sui buchi di culo online, magari per indirizzare le opinioni del popolo? Assoluta follia. Quindi aiutatemi a capire voi, da 1 a 10 quanto vi piace farvi sodomizzare dagli americani occupanti ostili del nostro paese?

>>20402 Io insisto che siete delle facce di merda. E più tempo rimarrete nel nostro paese ad interferire con i nostri affari e più lunga e dolorosa sarà la vostra punizione. Non saranno i popoli inglesi o americani a pagare, ma solo voi responsabili, non vi farete scudo di nessuno e nessuno verrà in vostro aiuto. Tutte le vostre storielle e propaganda culturale, ve le rimangerete tutte e forza fino ad esplodere.
>>20403 You speak as though we mastered European Imperium and then gave it to the Khazar Jews with a deliberate consciousness. No we never. You know we didn't mean to. But whence they seized control of the aristocrats, they extended it to malice and usury and punished the British for envy of the size of it, and despised us with particularity for it's conduct. Freeing the slaves did not lend itself particularly to corruption and usury. So we were punished and we were punished *first*. Those lessons that we are being forced to learn now were coming for Italy. They were due for Italy just as they are next due for the Congolese or the Uzbekistani. They're just lower down on this list than (You). Saying "it's just the Eternal Anglo" oversimplifies the problem and so the lessons required to avoid repeating it will be missed. That's how come I interfere with (You) Italian. That's why I'm no polite diplomatic embassy worker. Post your memes; even if I could stop you, I wouldn't. But I won't apologise for being an Anglo. We do not apologise.
