Are we sure he's running for president of the US? pic.twitter.com/1JpRSqZNE4— John Scott-Railton (@jsrailton) June 28, 2023
Curious whether he was a Bitcoin freak before he got in with Bannon and musk? “inviolable right” lol https://t.co/C1MHQL5U7J— Josh Marshall (@joshtpm) June 28, 2023
It's always sad when someone you admire espouses positions you find crazy, stupid or offensive. Fortunately, I've always considered Millar a talentless, third-rate Frank Miller wannabe and all around hack, so I'm pretty cool with this.
Mark Millar outing himself as a complete nutter (not a terribly surprising revelation for a lot of us) seems like a fantastic time to bring up this gem from Grant Morrison: pic.twitter.com/iNcyPJtSpO— Josh Gilbert, Occasional Artist ✊🌘 (@ShokXoneStudios) June 29, 2023

So a conspiracy theorist dies & goes to heaven. God himself shows up & asks; do you have any questions?— Sander van der Linden (@Sander_vdLinden) June 18, 2023
Well, was #Covid a hoax created by Big Pharma?
God replies; “Covid was real & vaccines saved millions”
Conspiracy theorist; “Damn this thing goes higher up than I thought”
How about some politics?

I called it. Trump came up with an excuse to back out of the debate because he is afraid of Bret Baier and Chris Christie. pic.twitter.com/888MOLIkKu— Ron Filipkowski (@RonFilipkowski) June 26, 2023
The fundamental flaw of the run-to-the-right-of-Trump strategy.
Between his new FL law and this new natl policy proposal, DeSantis has embraced the most extreme immigration/border positions of any major R in decades.— Simon Rosenberg (@SimonWDC) June 27, 2023
Like his 6 week abortion ban this stuff is deeply unpopular outside MAGA bubble, and is going to further degrade GOP brand. https://t.co/rVeXvbZR2x
Coming from the Bible-belt, MAGA's apocalyptic tendencies have long been on my radar.

Speaking as a Watergate historian, there’s nowhere on thousands of hours of Nixon tapes where Nixon makes any comment as clear, as clearly illegal, and as clearly self-aware as this Trump tape. https://t.co/JFqyfcQb8g— Garrett M. Graff (@vermontgmg) June 27, 2023

Yeah, that Turtledove.
This, btw, is the basic message of fascism. Return with us now to the golden days of yesteryear, when life was beautiful all the time--if you weren't black or gay or Jewish or anything else the powers that be didn't like.— Harry Turtledove (@HNTurtledove) June 24, 2023

Sad Sacks and friends
The account he’s talking about was claiming a Russian attack was actually a Ukrainian attack on Ukraine and had killed a lot Nato soldiers. Purportedly an account from Texas.

‘Later that day I started to wonder..are all men like Prigozhin..making big spectacular gestures but then refusing to commit at the pivotal moment? Was I, like Putin, running scared from true love?

As for me and my house: no, LLMs do not reason and in fact are architectural incapable of reasoning.
Let's unpack that.
