"Can’t remember: names - faces - directions - general words when speaking (I say “thingy” a lot) - appointments - things i need to buy like food I’ve run out of - my keys - what someone has literally just said to me - plans I’ve made with people"

So true that it's uncanny.

So, I saw a saw a reddit post that suggested turning on subtitles, and that makes *so* much sense for me.

I had already noticed that I've been getting better at watching things *since* I turned on subtitles on Netflix/iTunes/... (mostly as an aid to listening), but never connected the dots.

And since in Belgium everything is subtitled, I didn't have a lot problems with it there overall.

Seems I ran out of sleep again

Oh well. Coffee it is.


(Sleep is for the unsafe_unretained)

They used a neural-network style-transferring techniques to make Doom look like the box art of Doom!



Holy crap stock market.

When you tip a Belgian waiter 15% they are *really* happy.

(The service was excellent. He earned it.)

Europe: where getting a kettle of water to boil doesn’t take half a century.

My kids are watching the Sound Of Music and I can still sing along with most of the songs.

Unsure to be appalled or delighted.
