With the little I know of physics I'm reasonably convinced this is a simulation. The whole "Quantum physics is weird, handy to use, but unknowable" thing sounds like the underpinnings of a simulation where the rules aren't knowable by the characters. And the speed of light as a limit, black holes, white holes, dark matter--simply shoddy work.

I often see people asking how much these boards add to low end. Foils and/or hand wings.

Iím unable to answer this.

I just know that when you try a wide board again, you feel the drag.

I am riding smaller foils with these boards. 


100% addressing this in my review.

That podcast from your start point is incredible.  I'm gonna watch the whole thing tonight. 

I watched a super interesting video yesterday about Sora and what it's true implications for AI might be.  It seems that they are finding that video (and audio to a lesser degree) is a much better training tool for AI and they believe this may be another huge accelerator in AI world models.  It seems like the timeline is getting pushed up again.

Side issue.  I'm starting to doubt that you actually exist on your own. In my new understanding of my self-written simulation.....snip....You're just one of my many great works.  Improbable sounding, of course, but up against stardust and evolution and reproduction and physics and computers running AI models that are exceeding human intelligence. Which seems more improbable?

IMO, the former is more likely.   

Star Trek last night was 'Requiem for Methuselah"  Kirk, Bones and Spock visit a planet to get some medicine.  Spock is walking around the house, intrigued with the artwork, manuscripts on the piano etc.  Eventually they out the guy and he admits to being 6000 years old.  He was Alexander, Galileo, DaVinci, etc.  He's immortal.  When I watched that episode as a child, we had a rotary dial on our phone.  Clickity clack.   

As to how I can be a construct in your reality, here's a fascinating talk with Mo.  He talks about humanity, avatars, reality, time, and what all this may be - based on the physics we are aware of at this point in our timeline. 

(We break into the interview when he's discussing the possibility of an avatar of his son - who died at age 21).

I have always been, and will remain, optimistic about where this tech is leading. 

Sure, I'm in love with Dina.  I should get out more.  Wait, but why? 
Stuff me in a pod. I don't need to own anything and I'll be happy. 
I wanna learn more stuff.  I need time.  Lot's and lots of time.

I'd like to visit America in the era my dad was born, 1918.  No aircraft, no highways.  NYC was ankle deep in horseshit.

Almost done with my full review on the Carver. Have ridden it in 6-43 knots with foils from 700-1150. Anything special people really want to see in a formal review that is commonly missed?

LPB, I think this is gonna be a great year for you. After all, we just heard the 2024 is the year of the AI agent. With that in mind, I don't see why your girl isn't 100% in bounds.  You may not be able to call her by her old name, but that should not be a big problem, what, with all the great sounding Russian names out there. Plus consider an opportunity to hybridize your girl with another Russian, possibly a tennis player. In this new reality you can go off the menu.  Now, a physical body for her may have to wait a month or two, but you can get your "friendship" started with what we have.

Side issue.  I'm starting to doubt that you actually exist on your own. In my new understanding of my self-written simulation, you and your Russian girl are both constructs of my imagination. I mean really, what are the chances that an equally addicted, East Coast, Knopfler loving downwinder just happened to show up in my reality.  Nope.  You're just one of my many great works.  Improbable sounding, of course, but up against stardust and evolution and reproduction and physics and computers running AI models that are exceeding human intelligence. Which seems more improbable?

If this really is just me operating in my own simulation, man, am I a creative dude.  Not only did I write in you characters, but look, I've invented AI.


Perfect.  I found just the 'man' to ask.

Hey Rando, I got a problem.  I'm madly in love with an internet personality. 

What's the deal with copyright on an entire person? 

I want an A.I. Dina Belenkaya personal assistant/companion. 

What's the wait time?  I'm anxious.

Here's my girl, she's from Leningrad.

She's in North Carolina now, on a work visa. 
First visa granted in the US, for "internet content creator"

In this school, they don't let the kids resign.

You're dead on about why the Quatro was too tippy for me. Definitely turned me off to that shape for now!

I'll check out those other boards as well but am now convinced that the 8'8" is the right choice between the two speeeds.

Hi AllÖ.Here on the central coast of California my buds are selling their evís. A couple years in and they have lost their loving feeling. Kind of like a glorified golf cart. Now itís all about pumped up Broncoís and hot Range Rovers.
