What do we think m7s?

I want to know if Grimes was taking the piss when she explained her daily fitness regime.

I was at a presentation on this sort of technology a while ago during a legal conference at Duke University. There are a whole heap of ethical and legal problems with it and some of the implied uses it could be put to. A very troubling field to say the least.

He really does think he's the messiah doesn't he with his talk of changing the world at a civilisation level.

LOLLERS re Grimes:

 

GRIMES: My training is a 360 approach. I first maintain a healthy cellular routine where I maximize the function of my mitochondria with supplements such as NAD+, Acetyl L-Carnitine, Magnesium, etc. This helps promote ATP and it’s incredibly visceral. From that point I spend 2-4 hours in my deprivation tank, this allows me to “astro-glide” to other dimensions - past, present, and future. 
In the afternoons I do a 1-2 hour sword fighting session with my trainer, James Lew, we go over the fundamentals that work the obliques, core stabilizes, and triceps as well as a few tricks. To wind down from this I spend 30-45 minutes on an inclined hike at roughly 4-4.5 miles per hour, arguably the most efficient workout.

I then spend 45 minutes stretching before heading into the studio where my mind and body are functioning at peak level, with a neuroplastic goal between 57.5 and 71.5 AphC’s (which is my preferred range for my blood type). I’ve outfitted my studio with the highest grade of red light. It is pretty much 1000 sqf IR Sauna. 
Hana then comes over and we do a screaming session for 20-25 minutes while I slow boil the honey tea that maximizes vocal proficiency.

I have also eliminated all blue light from my vision through an experimental surgery that removes the top film of my eyeball and replaces it with an orange ultra-flex polymer that my friend and I made in the lab this past winter as a means to cure seasonal depression.

I go to bed with a humidifier on.

Musk is a genius but he's also crazy. It's hard to tell where one ends and the other begins. 

WTAF?

Like some of her music but Grimes is clearly mental. I'm on board with the sword fighting which is a legit workout and the stretching. What is an inclined hike? The rest sounds barking and don't get me started on the eye surgery. Can't imagine not seeing blue skies.

Before you get one of these things drilled into your brain, maybe pause at the fact that the design team behind it could be the same one that Elon had draw up his Amber Heard Memorial Dildo Submarine:

And there's the first HEH of the day

Isn't an inclined hike the activity traditionally known as walking uphill?

I love "Amber Heard Memorial Dildo Submarine".  May have to get me one of those.

Am put in mind of the prof in flash gordon.  In the scene where he defies the evil ming by remembering the beatles and shakespeare.

I realise that many roffers are not well placed to repel the evil ming...

All been thought about before... ...way back in 1984 to be precise when William Gibson wrote Neuromancer. I think he called in 'jacking in'...

Before that even fluffy.  Asimov considers a similar concept in his foundation books written in the ‘50s.

More recently the ‘Neural Lace’ concept was extensively written about by the late Iain M Banks in his culture books.
