 Today some writing and thoughts from my comrade at arts


Artifical Intelligence or Ten Ways Not to Communicate with Other Human Beings

Do You Use Artifical Intelligence Rather than Actual Thinking When Communicating?

These are ten things that people often pass off as legitimate communication but are actually artificially made to order facsimiles of real communication. You should try to avoid doing these things. Try to use real thought behind what you say and think, rather than using artificial intelligence like many humans do today.
1. Memorizing catchy phrases and comebacks that state nothing about your opinion, and are a generalized answer that takes no side or thought to produce.
2. Using words that you do not know the meaning of and you also do not know how to spell.
3. Coping or copying the words or opinions of someone and claiming they are your own, rather than giving credit to the person and explaining how your opinion is similar to theirs.
4. Claiming to be part of a group or organization without knowing what they believe in or stand for, and using name dropping of their group to support your ideas publicly.
5, Having no idea how to pronounce the name of a person that you are quoting or paraphrasing when giving an opinion, for or against that person and their opinion.
6. Using words in ways that are counter to their grammatically correct usage, for example the organs in your body do not remain in their positions throughout the body due to 'organization'...or an organ donor is not what you call someone who donates a pipe organ to your church.
7. Coping or copying a incorrectly used word and continuing to use it incorrectly.
8. Making up words for things that you are trying to describe, rather than find out the correct way to say what you mean.
9. Speaking English does not mean your understand what good English is, and that goes for all other languages you do not speak fluently. Speaking English also only means you know some of the language verbally, it says nothing about how you can read or write the language in question.
10. Thinking that your native language is the only language worth knowing or speaking, is not only ignorant, it also is a kind of ignorance that is spread to others by saying it.
And one final note : Stupidity is a virus, it is spread from one person to another by continuing to act and communicate stupidly. Keep this in mind when talking to other human being.

Words Can Free Your Mind or Bind Your Thoughts with Stupidity. Stupidity is a Virus, Fight the Plague and Don't Be a Carrier.

When Taking Pictures in Public Places

Obviously anyone can object to having their picture taken without permission, but they have no legal grounds to do so if they are in public. It's up to you, the photographer, to decide exactly what is prudent and what is likely to cause you a problem (up to and including physical violence).
Mostly, in a public place you can take pictures of anything or anyone you want. Public places include parks, sidewalks, malls, etc. Even though it’s technically private property, being open to the public makes it public space and therefore public.
If you are on public property, you can take pictures of private property. If a building, is visible from the sidewalk, it’s fair game. But if you are on private property and are asked not to take pictures, you are obligated to honor that request. This also includes verbal and non-verbal cues such asposted signs.
Even though some things are on private property, they often are still within the rights of a photographer to photograph legally, if they are visable to photograph from a public property. People can be photographed if they are in public with or without their consent unless they have secluded themselves and can expect a reasonable degree of privacy.
If challenged, you do not have to explain why you are taking pictures, nor disclose your identity, except in some cases when questioned by a law enforcement officer.If someone tries to confiscate your camera or film, you don’t have to give it to them. If it is taken by force or you are threatened, th party can be liable for things like theft and coercion.
In general when dealing with the police, the best advice to minimize your problems is to be polite and cooperative (at least up to a point). If you're loud, argumentative, combative and refuse to assist in any way, you may be in the right, but you'll likely be arrested for something and have to spend a time and money defending yourself in court. Unless you are driving, you do not have to provide any ID information to the police.
Security is often given as the reason somebody does not want you to take photos, it is rarely valid. Taking a photo of a publicly visible subject does not constitute terrorism, nor does it infringe on a company’s trade secrets. Sensitive government buildings like military bases or nuclear facilities can prohibit photography if it is deemed a threat to national security.
Even if you are on private property, secutity can ask you to leave or stop taking photos, but the limit of their powers. They can't make you show them your pictures, give them your film or memory card or take your camera. All they can legally do is ask you to leave. If you refuse to stop taking pictures and/or leave the property, they can call the police and you may be arrested for trespass or other charges if you refuse to obey their lawful order to leave and cause a disturbance.
Always remember. Even law enforcement officers need a court order for anything official, and legal. Personally, I'd cooperate, show them my ID, show them my pictures, but I'd draw the line at deleting anything, since the police have no authority to make you do that.
Most important is how you handle yourself in any given situation, to stay within legal limits this is generally what you should do if confronted or challenged while taking photographs anywhere. Private parties have very limited rights to detain you against your will, and can be subject to legal action if they harass you.
