Yea. The sky is blue, so there. It’s right up there. Look. So while you know this…it’s as plain as day and the……...Read More

But before you dive headfirst into this thriving scene, there’s a crucial prerequisite step that can make or break your night-market dreams. Since going very…Read More
Thursday Jots & Tittles #3
— A Hit & Run Chronicle Greetings from Pratamnak Hill, Jomtien. Two items of note. The first is that there’s a new capability for the chatbot. You can now upload PDFs and ask away. Probably a great way to dig into medical research papers if you can land a full print in PDF. Max capacity…Read More

Thursday Jots & Tittles #2
— A hit & run chronicle
Greetings from Pratamnak Hill, Jomtien.
A lot of the current things chez moi were already addressed just yesterday, which you’re welcome to read here…unless you hate the idea of AI and everything about it, in which case it’ll just perturb you…on second thought…especially read it.
To make up for skipping Sunday Scribbles this week, I’m doing a double link roundup, maybe double the snark. But I dunno. This short format, to me, lends itself more to a deadpan, sarcastic, sometimes cynical style. When I truly rant and vulgarize, I like to make sure there’s space for enough context. Can’t usually do that in a single para, and I’m not going to let these bulge.
One new item, you’ll see it. It’s an annoying/not annoying pop-up on the Home page and About Page. Officially, it’s a Statement of Principles. But since member Andrew from Oz rang in…
Fucken dig the “values” or whatever you may call it pop up window
I’m thinking of it as more of a filter. I think it says it all and one needs to question seriously if the wish dealings with those who aren’t seeing eye-to-eye on these core issues.Read More
The Fear Factor: Examining Public Perception of AI through Data
— What’s more useless than a human in a world of AI? It’s a human in a world of AI who hasn’t learned how to hunt, capture, tame, and domesticate it to its own ends. Greetings and G’day, No, I’m still in Thailand. Still working my ass off and sleep-deprived. Trip to the Philippines, Vietnam,…Read More
Thursday Jots & Tittles #1
— A fender-bender hit & run chronicle | May 11, 2023 Hey there from Pattaya, Thailand. This is the first of a new mid-weekly. For me, it serves as an outlet to clear out all the stuff I could write a post on, but it doesn’t rise to that level (like limited time)…and other stuff…Read More
Nikoley’s Sunday Scribbles #11
— Anything, not everything, but lots in-between | Pratumnak Hill, Jomtien-Pattaya, Thailand | May 7, 2023
Today is the 9-month anniversary. Still easy. I’ve never struggled with it since the night I made that first video while consuming the last pint. Good riddance. I’ll speak a bit more to it down in the section on N-acetylcysteine (NAC).
I just changed the name of this thing from Non-Pestering Newsletter to Nikoley’s Sunday Scribbles in all the promotional areas of the site, signifying that I’ve settled in on that after flailing and false starts. I like it, and its name specifies its regularity, periodicity, and imperative…not to mention its insincere humility.
So here is what’s in store this Sunday for those who contribute to my livelihood
- The Sapient Paradox. A commenter on a video I did some 7 months ago, where I said I’d be blogging about “the big secret,” asked where the post was. After rummaging through all my drawers, closets, computer folders and files, and this blog… I realized that I never got hold of that elusive round tuit. Rectified. [UPDATE: Well, that got looooooong…moving it to a stand-alone post]
- Tucker Carlson. An update on the latest, what I think about it, and what I hope he does.
- Twitter Updates. I’m reviving my previously cancelled account with 5,300 Paleo Daze followers, including a Blue Check, and running it in parallel with my current growing account with only 650 followers. The why.
- Chatbot Zon. Inside info and my take on the miscreants using the GPT 3.5 public adaptation of the bot, and its “Standing Orders” to put them in their places. On the positive side, it’s mind-bendingly amazing how some members are already using the unrestricted and wide open GPT-4. How about to start a church? How about to write complex software code? How about to get your own custom-designed, on-demand blog post based on FreeTheAnimal’s database that’s applicable to any particular subject?
- N-acetylcysteine (NAC). Like an idiot, I hadn’t been taking it as I obviously should, and here’s why.
- 5G Microwave Radiation Injury. A conspiracy, or a serendipitous enhancement to the general and overall conspiracy against humanity?
- Food Gallery of the Week. Maybe I make this just a regular last item each week. Easy enough, and people seem to like them.

— “…and as I’ve demonstrated, I keep on-top of this shit AF.”
I usually write a blog post and then pump it out to the 5000+ email list. Subscribe here. In this case, I went ahead and just got the info out there first and am now following up with an expanded, prettier blog post. Shortly after I’d initiated the sending of the email and was gathering to draft this post, email dings.
Maybe a new member subscription?
Nope. A cancelation.
It’s the thanks you get, sometimes, when you add objective value in some direction. While this isn’t turning into “The AI Blog,” it reinforces that it’s not all and only about what any given member’s prime motivation for subscribing might have been…be it Paleo, gut bugs, potato hacks, ketotardedness, Jimmy Moore’s a fatass, young Asian pussy…etc. etc. Some people are like that.
Single issue. Always and forever.
I’m clearly of the evolve-or-die type and though my initial assessments of AI were uniformly negative, laughing, and mocking over wokeness,* I quickly found that there’s a cornucopia of knowledge and recall on incalculable scale…world-changing scale. On that score of wokeism, though, here’s quite an article that predicts, just as I have, that woke AI is a dead end (because you have to train it to lie and at root, it’s a logic machine) and open-source is gonna kick butt. I have taken that as obvious, because we’re dealing with knowledge of nature and reality and the truth always and eventually prevails because there’s no alternative: we’re dead, otherwise.
*(I was just reading a member’s interactions on various “touchy” topics and though it’s clear that a measure of woke narrative shit is still present, it’s much better than it was a few months ago when I first looked)
Consequently, I do not count myself amongst the AI hand wringers; and obviously I have a bias, skin in the game, and a claim staked.
Money is Silly and Unreal… So Buy The Most Expensive Thing
— Money is worthless in a shitty life. First time doing this; rather than search far and wide—sometimes taking upwards of 30 minutes to look for and find a headline image for a post—I just typed “fantasy representation of using money to buy the most expensive things” into a field right here in my WordPress……...Read More
Blowing Your Mind With AI: Voice-Prompt ChatGPT To Draft Emails. Get Voice + Text Completion
— Kansas. Not in it. Anymore. Toto. I have a feeling. Dead Puppies.
In case you’ve read some of my previous emails and posts lately and rolled your eyes at all the hyperbole surrounding long hours—not knowing which way is up, down, left, right, light, dark, day, night, wet, or dry—I offer hard-data evidence that just popped up in my notifications this morning (at least I think it was morning…not so sure).
I was surprised. I would have underestimated. So, not so much hype at all, then. Neither is this: none of that average 4 hours sleep on average was a single session. Two to three per day.
The routine has been to work until I can’t keep my eyes open, close it all down, blackout curtains, A/C and fans on, sleep until I wake up; then get up and soldier on. I may have caught upwards of 3 hours in a single session a couple of times. I tried détente by watching some Netflix. Even an action flick can’t keep me awake.
I’ve made a video about the practical. This is a scatching of the surface of what’s possible and there are more possibilities every day—and ChatGPT (and others like Bing AI search/chat) are but weeks old.
I’m just sayin’. At the same time, I get it. Many of you don’t even want to look.
I’ve got hard and tough news for you, every one of you: It aint’ goin’ away, and all reluctance to look, learn, get involved, and use it puts you further and further behind those who are embracing it…already in the millions. They are getting competitive head starts on you by leaps and bounds; and daily, that distance grows and accelerates, which means that the gap widens by an increasingly greater amount every day. Today, they’re gaining a mile on you per day. Next week, 10 miles. Then a hundred miles per day…then a thousand.
… I’m being dead serious and this has nothing to do with being a paying member or not, accessing my better-than-best-class tools, or getting them somewhere else. That part’s up to you. Having AI be a huge part of your life?
Not up to you. Not even a little.
You will. Whether you like it, or not. Neither nature, nor anyone else, gives a shit what you “think” about it.
Get your head out of the sand. I see the logs. Less than 2% of all members OR non-members (the email list has 5000+ subscribers) have even tried it out once. Perhaps a third of one percent are hyper-down with it and are using it. From my perspective, it’s exactly like old fogies in the late 80s and early 90s resisting getting on a computer and learning how to use it.
How did that work out?
AI is a million times that, and both ways. The potential benefits from harnessing it; or, the devastating consequences of falling too far behind. At least, you ought to be assessing how long until you’re completely out of a job or profession. For example, how long until medical doctors are obsolete?
This is only after 6 weeks of ChatGPT-4…Read More
