A Mr Frankenstein at Sino suggesting an AI thermonuclear weapon "deadhand" system. What could go wrong?
Skynet with Chinese characteristics!
> Disclaimer : For those stating that I shouldn't be advocating destruction of civilization in nuclear war, my position is strictly as defense and deterrent... in fact quite the opposite, the intent here is to avoid extermination of entire civilizations, but in order for that to happen there first must be credible deterrence to prevent a rogue US from attempting a Scorched Earth policy by executing an all-out full-scale strategic nuclear strike on China..... a 5,000+ year old civilization with 1.4 billion people whose lives have been greatly uplifted in the last 40 years as part of the Great Chinese rejuvenation and its comeback to natural order on the throne.
> History has shown us what happens when the power disparity is too great (of a differential) for example the juxtaposition of early colonial Americans alongside that of the original Native Americans. Or even think back to the Eight Nation Alliance humiliations... China must for the sake of its own citizens and that of all humankind quickly achieve and maintain nuclear parity and effective deterrence with that of the other great power in the world.
> As emergency stop-gap, buy some nukes from Russia... For mutual trust/security reasons Russia may not want to sell/transfer nukes wholesale to China nor would China "trust" Russia that much to accept delivery on face value, so just the refined core. Making nukes is 1950s technology but one of the bottleneck is the refining process if China wanted to scale up in quantity quickly....
> Create and implement a modern deadhand/perimeter system and announce it to the Western world be it publically or secret gov back channels. Use a well trained AI nueral network that is hardcoded to strictly follow objectives/directives yet flexible to use its intuition and judgement in the proper big picture and high level context to make such decisions... simply, if it detects China has been wiped out or all humans in the chain of decision making are nuetralized, it starts an initialization to launch retailatory strike on its own... in the off chance the AI made mistake, it can only be overridden by the same members of CCP that would hold the authority to call a launch in the first place. So humans can launch without AI; AI c... keep reading on reddit ➡

EDIT: Thank you all!
Okay, straight to the point.
I consider myself an above average player, so I don’t exactly struggle in Trials.
That being said, I feel for the people just trying to get themselves a gun at 3 wins, or even just trying to get the bounty done. My first game this weekend was against people that already had Gilded Flawless. That’s 50 wins minimum... (10wins a card)
That’s insane. Once a player has been flawless, they should only be put against other flawless players.
I have no idea how rare this is but it looks nice
The other day i was reading about the labor history of America and the Chicago Martyrs, and i was wondering how much does this history get taught to the regular american, both at school and college. Do you get taught about labor clashes, the union, anarchism, syndicalism, the rise of big business, agrarian populism, european immigration?
Very interest stuff, by the way.
I’m relatively new to Toronto, I moved here from Whitecourt, AB about a year ago - I was visiting family in New Jersey last week - we drove into NYC for the weekend, and I fell in love with the Upper East Side, and the gorgeous late 19th century architecture all over the place.
Which made me wonder, is there any of this kind of architecture in Toronto? That makes up a similar kind of neighborhood? Is there any ‘Gilded Age’ architecture anywhere? I’ve always liked to compare TO to NYC, but actually going to NYC for the first time since I was really little, I realized it’s A LOT more historic and - “grand”? - and ornate. Not so much just glassy modern skyscrapers, like I first thought - it kind of reminded me a lot of London - for some reason, the preconceived image of NY I had in my mind before going consisted of the simple skyline and then Times Square, and that’s it. Not the street-level.
I was just wondering what area of Toronto offered the closest vibe to the Upper East Side? Mixed commercial/cultural/residential? What area would match best?
Use the code ZARINOX to receive the Gilded Locks cosmetic for Zarina Kassir. To redeem, enter the in-game store and click "Redeem Code" at the top right. Code was leaked early, expiration date is still unknown (probably February 25).
After what seemed like a thousand games of gambit, I feel like rather than reset the titles each season, what if they evolved. This first gilded title is almost a bronze color, so instead of resetting, the next tier could be silver, gold, diamond and platinum or something similar.
This way would make the grind to guild titles feel more rewarding IMO.
Idk where else to say this but I’m really proud of the fact I played gambit for 7 hours straight. It was incredible, and honestly really fun.
I made a gambit friend with someone I met playing gambit too! So shoutout out to StuddedNET for being the invader to my collector.
The only thing I can say is huckleberry is massively underrated, salvagers salvo is a blast (pun intended), and I’m going to go stare at paint drying to try to unwind from all that gambit.
Edit: for those curious I got 7 bottom dollars this season so far playing gambit. I tried to look it up but bungus account isn’t showing my gambit games :/. My guess is that’s over around 63 matches five or take which is about one drop every 9 matches which sounds about right.
I’m not sure if it helps but I was using gambit prosperity on my ghost for most of it!
I've seen a lot of people wonder how gilded items and Ancient Hunts work and what they are so I decided I will make a post about them! Comment if I miss anything or if you have questions!
Gilded items are a new kind of item only found in the new Ancient Hunts, a new type of mission part of the free content that came with the Flames of the Nether DLC. Gilded items have an extra enchantment that can go up to tier 3 and when salvaged, give gold instead of emeralds. To obtain gilded items, you must locate and defeat the new "Ancient Mobs" inside the hunts which are powerful enchanted boss mobs which drop one gilded item each. To get into the hunts, you have to sacrifice some items and optionally, enchantment points and depending on what the items are, and how many enchantment points you spend, (WARNING: YOU DESTROY THE ITEMS AND ENCHANT POINTS FOREVER!) you have higher chances of finding more "Ancient Mobs". In Ancient Hunts you can also find a new currency, gold. When you pick up your first piece of gold you unlock the piglin merchant in the mysterious cave at camp which sells gilded items for a hefty price in gold. Gilded items can also come in the unique rarity, and have TWO extra enchantments!
Quick summary: Sacrifice items and enchant points to go into Ancient Hunts to collect gold and defeat powerful boss "Ancient Mobs" for powerful gilded items and use gold to buy more from the piglin merchant.
Hey, I wasn't sure if it was worth the post put it might interest some of you, so I decided to still post it for the few concerned. From the 5th (10am GMT) to 10th (10am GMT) February the "Gilded Phoenix Bundle" in which 5 items are available, one item different during each day. Will be available during drops on Twitch.
