What's annoying you?

I will take a hard pass on the teleportation.  I am not fond of the idea of having an arm for a face and my face on what used to be my shoulder when the machine acts up.

100% agreement on this. Time spent getting from where I am to where I need/want to be is always an annoyance

Or like going...."Diagonally" ;)

 

What annoys me are bills. I pay them one month and yet they just reappear the next! Oof.

Self driving cars is just a bad idea, they can't think like humans you can't program them to have a conscience. They can't stop on a dime if someone is going to jaywalk in front of them or a kid tries to run in the street, or even a animal runs in front of you. Also if a handicap person might go into a seizure, or have a stroke while riding in one of these and might die. Bad drivers should just have their car taken away for like a month. 

They may be like that now, but with how AI research is going, self driven cars will be superior to human drivers at some point. Though I still don't like the idea of it and would much rather drive myself. Too much reliance on technology seems like a bad idea to me~

What annoys me is performing damage control everytime my grandparents use their computer...

It shows what happens when something teleports with you, like a fly. And you DNA merges with it, turning you into a monster.

What's annoying me right now is the unbearable hot weather. 

I will have to get a ventilator ASAP.

Agree with this as well. What’s particularly troubling is when you point out the very real safety and security concerns the solutions they propose are the same as the ones for older technology that still haven’t proven effective. Invariably the final argument is “Well it’s going to happen whether you like it or not so just accept it or get left behind”. THAT’S annoying.

I think if self-driving cars ever get to the point where they cause less accidents than humans, there is not too much left against them. Main problem I see then is what exactly we program into them given difficult decisions such as killing the passengers or the pedestrians.

(would you guys be interested in debating this in a new thread? I don't mind debating it here, but other posts seem to be overlapped by it)

The thing with AI is, now matter how advanced it gets. You still can't program things like a conscience. Or making split decisions.  A AI doesn't know what is right or wrong. Its just programed to do commands.

That would be a very fun topic I think, though I may or may not be too lazy to join in~

@Serge heartless What you are thinking of is not true AI.

I'm pretty sure true AI won't happen in our life time, which I'm not worried about, cause ill be gone by then.

Hahah, fair enough, you're probably right. I don't think I even want to be around for true AI.

From what I've heard when you get writers block, its best to read, or watch a movie.

Or a tv series like anime too helps me a lot. 

I think for me though its a bit of writers block but it is also lack of desire to write right now.

What's annoying me is people who think the way to fix things is just to bitch about them constantly until someone else gets so sick of listening to it that they fix it for them.  Come on people!  Google and a bit of initiative.  That's all it takes to make the world a better place.  As a bonus whatever you're bitching about will probably even get fixed faster.

( /rant  :D  )

 

On a different topic (no, the above wasn't directed at Seshi ;))...

Shouldn’t we all have iron man suits by now

I just saw some interesting info on that topic last week.  These people seem to have a good start on that...

Having no one to spend time with.  There.  That's the worst thing that can happen and I will do nothing because I can do nothing about it.

A close friend is good enough.  Humans are simple, sometimes that's all it takes to make someone happy.

For the longest time I let someone convince me that the advice they were giving me was going to benefit me in some way. In reality, this person kept me in a negative place. With the feelings of being too dense or not good enough. When all he had over me was a couple of more years worth of experience. I looked up to him at the time because I thought he had some wisdom that I just couldn't grasp. Thinking back, there were a few people I communicated with that completely treated lack of experience as a lack of sense or mental ability. Maybe it's an ego thing or maybe they authentically don't see what they were doing. It can make situations difficult and confusing. Especially when their instructions start to become a full-on beatdown of pure degradation in the guise of guidance. While raising any objection is further labeled as a personal weakness or intolerance.

It also gets kind of annoying when older people instigate things or become a bit of an antagonizer towards you. Then try to justify any response by giving you a lesson on being the bigger person (AKA- telling you to shut up, move along with the abuse and never question any type of missing professionalism). Yikes!

Lastly, my own shyness annoys me. It's not often and I'm not entirely sure why I have anxiety-filled episodes but when I do it effects a lot of things. Mainly my own body—stress and general exhaustion. 😱

Age indicates very little, that's for certain. Members of my family have been giving me advice since I was little thinking it would be beneficial. Sometimes it was, often it wasn't, but advice is cool, because you're not obligated to take it. Some people in my family have a tendency to intervene in my proboems on their own however, purely out of love, but usually making things much worse because they don't fully understand the issue. 

Explaining my existential crisis and subsequent depression to my mother for example, proved to be a bad idea the second she started listing potential solutions, all of which showed that she'd completely missed the point. I had to tell her bluntly that that's what she'd done and that she should leave it to me. Thankfully she did 😅

Quite a difficult topic (both psychologically and ethically), especially if people are very close to each other.

If you care for someone and you see what you interpret to be suffering or making a mistake, it can be quite difficult to not give what you think is apt advice or intervene. Parents are a prime example of course. On the other hand, if the one receiving the advice interprets that things are getting worse rather than improving and attribute it to the bad advice or the person who gave it, it can feel like trusting that person was a mistake. Quite difficult. Personally it seems to me that it might be helpful for both to step back from the whole situation together and try and see what happened from a more neutral perspective. If both share a common goal and want to work together, I think a lot can be solved.

What I think is a bit simpler though is that I would not say that just because someone is older, their take on something is worth more than someone who is younger. I would say that if you yourself are less experienced in the matter than someone else, it might not be a bad idea to give what the other has to say some serious thought. That being said, it does not mean that you are wrong even if what you say diverges from what the more experienced person said. But people who are way more experienced often do seem to be relatively closed to new ideas. That is something I constantly experience in my work when what I say goes against someone who has been working on the topic for 30 years.

We should open a psychoanalysis thread or something 😂
