S*x, Lies, and Bird Watching

Pretext: Birding is when you answer your mom's front door to get your 3rd uber eats from McDonalds of the day and you see a bird and then tell someone else about the bird you saw.

In the world of birding there has been an on-going not-so-super-important-but-hugely-important milestone of someone accurately logging and seeing their ten thousandth bird. The presumptive winner of this achievement in the birding world has always been Peter Kaestner. Peter is the Madonna of the birding world. He travels the world specifically to frick teenagers look at flying rats and he is the queen bee of the teen fricking bird watching world.

SO - This Peter dude has been logging his stupid birds for legit years, which it should be noted is entirely on your word and the entire community is built on the trust that you're not full of shit because why would anyone lie about seeing a fricking bird? But Peter has been logging his birds on the bird website WHICH IS A REAL THING and he was coming up on this 10k milestone and all of the other bird autists were like super excited about Peter seeing his quadrillionith flying rat because this is what old people did before Pokemon Go.

Earlier this year Peter set up this big huge tour of some third world shit hole (Egypt or w/e) to see his 10k bird and tickets were selling like HOT CAKES because this is basically the Eras tour for old people who frick teens watch birds. Then comes Jason.

Jason Mann - Jason Mann is a literal NOBODY who joined the birding site and logged 9,999 bird sightings in one fricking day mere days before Peter was set to go on his famous expedition breaking the record for 10k bird sightings, and Jason co-announced that he was on the way to the Philippines to frick teens see ONE MORE BIRD - potentially ruining Peter's long awaited and long-standing glory of seeing ten thousand birds first. Due to the aforementioned trust I brought up earlier, calling someone out for something as bizarre as logging 9,999 bird sightings a week before a famous birder is about to see his 10k bird is absolutely illegal in the bird forum community, and yes everyone did think it was suss AF.

SO - Peter cancelled ALL of his scheduled sponsored trips that he was getting paid tens of thousands of dollars to do and RUSHED to a different third world country determined to frick teenagers probably look at a bird before this Jason c*nt did. The birding website was in absolute fricking chaos.

OMG SO - Jason and Peter are in the world's dumbest race to see a bird in a third world shithole and ON THE SAME DAY they both announce their 10k bird. Jason announced his 10k bird literal minutes before Peter did, and thus "won" the prestigious award of maybe seeing ten thousand flying rats before Peter did.

Everyone is like WTF and THEN - the worst possible thing ever to ever happen in the birding world happens.

Jason Mann has an article released on the world renowned and widely famous niche tourist birding website announcing that he is THE FIRST PERSON to ever see 10k birds in the birding world. Because according to his bird log he is! He did it!


Peter - the long-standing, and well respected ornithological autist that he is makes a public FB post conceding his victory to Jason and stating that his 10k bird was a win "for him" and basically saying that this Jason c*nt saw the 10k bird first. Total b-word move btw.

BHUUUUT WAIT - so everyone on the bird website forums were obviously skeptical of Jason's bird list the moment he posted it and have been looking at this shit to verify the plausibility of seeing the birds that Jason said he done saw and GUESS WHAT! A bunch of those fricking birds haven't been seen in like 100 years and are thought to be extinct.


Mere hours after Jason and Peter both announcing their 10k bird posts online the fact that EXTINCT birds were on Jason's bird list were revealed by forum users and literally three hours later the highly respected website retracted their article about Jason Mann and then revealed that it was WRITTEN BY JASON HIMSELF and then ALSO apologized to the entire birdwatching world for basically being stupid AF and ruining bird watching. This is still live on their website.

Jason Mann has not made any public statement as of now about his horrific abuse of the bird watching community BUT he did message Peter Kaestner and basically conceded the 10k victory to him. Which is also pretty shady because the way he worded it made it sound like he was "giving" the award to Peter and let's be real. Jason Mann didn't exist until four months ago when he posted that fake butt bird log and Peter is like, as I said, the Madonna of the bird watching community.

EFFORTPOST Pump and Dump [but it's not what you think] :marseyxd:

The Covid 19 saga gave us an endless parade of drama bonanza but the sexiest of them might be the pillow-talk securities fraud :marseyrofl:

Now Pillow Talk Insider trading is nothing new, some states like Wisconsin even have made laws regarding that grants the spouse immunity from divulging material information because trust is a big factor. Even back in 2006, this was a meme issue:

A former securities trader cashed in on pillow talk with his unsuspecting lawyer girlfriend by using confidential information she disclosed to engage in insider trading, the feds charged yesterday.

Lee Edelman, 34, allegedly betrayed the trust of his live-in girlfriend โ€“ an attorney with a prominent law firm โ€“ in exchange for $23,000 in profits from secret stock sales he made based on his knowledge of a corporate acquisition his lover was handling.

The girlfriend, whose name was not released, openly discussed the deal with Edelman based on the couple's โ€œpattern and practice of sharing confidences,โ€ a new indictment alleges.

She also received deliveries of documents related to her legal work at their Manhattan apartment and discussed the acquisition on the phone at home, court papers show.


More Examples:

One Bong foid even went so far as to say yes, she slept with her boss to get material info and then traded on them to get some money, but she only did it because her boss manipulated and abused her for 20 years. Fricking bongs man :marseylaugh:

>Woman accused of securing insider trading secrets through pillow talk claims she was bullied for 20 years by her lover boss


This reached a frenzy with the commencement of the 2008 crash, mostly because most frickers were laid off and the market was volatile, so from home, with nothing else to do, all you could do was eavesdrop on your partner and make a quick buck

Suspected insider trading cases reached an all-time high last year, driven less by hedge funds and more by pillow talk between relatives and friends, the head of surveillance at the New York Stock Exchange said on Wednesday.


So staying at home and volatile markets, got it

As governments shut down one by one in 2020, this trend returned, with many bvlls seeing the bear and trying to get some easy cash

Steven Teixeira's use of his girlfriend's laptop began innocently enough when she asked him to keep an eye on her work email while she went to fitness classes and ran errands.

As they weathered the pandemic from their apartment in Queens, N.Y., he gave in to temptation. His sweetheart worked as an executive assistant at Morgan Stanley, and her calendar invites included meetings about planned mergers and acquisitions that involved the investment bank.

Teixeira, a compliance executive at a payment-processing company whom she intended to marry, used the information to trade in advance of the deals. It netted him thousands in profits, promises of Rolex watches from friends he tipped off, and the scrutiny of federal officials probing insider trading. He pleaded guilty to a dozen fraud charges in June 2023.

>โ€œDuring Covid, there was an uptick in brazen conduct,โ€ said Edward Imperatore, a defense lawyer at law firm Morrison & Foerster. โ€œIn a work-from-home environment, people acted with more impunity.โ€

In Teixeira's case, he was aided by a mouse-jiggler he bought that ensured his girlfriend's laptop wouldn't lock when she wasn't using it, according to court documents. He has been cooperating with prosecutors and is scheduled to testify this year at the trial of his former friend, Jordan Meadow, who at the time was a stockbroker with Spartan Capital Securities. Meadow made more than $700,000 trading on Teixeira's information and used the tips to advise clients who made millions, prosecutors allege.

What the frick is a mouse jiggler, niggler?

When jobs went remote early in the pandemic, employees liked the idea of being at their homes in Barstow, Calif., collecting pay of $27 an hour.

Then their friends in the IT department shared some bad news. Work computers would shut down if left inactive for more than 10 minutes. Bosses would know who was away from their desks.

That irked some people. Sometimes there was nothing to do, he says, yet โ€œthey still wanted us logged on. It didn't make any sense.โ€

Some nerd figured it out. They wrapped the cord of their computer mouse around a rotating desk fan. Its motion kept the mouse moving and prevented his computer from shutting down. โ€œI logged on, went to the gym,โ€ they say.

Another time, someone opened the notes application and placed a lock on the keyboard over the letter C. The page filled up with row after row of the letter while they stepped out.

For workers who aren't as handy, there are mouse jigglers for sale on Amazon. โ€œPush the button when you're getting up from your desk and the cursor travels randomly around the screenโ€”for hours, if needed!โ€ says one review.


Anyway, coming back to the Texeira story

โ€œYo you see UFS,โ€ Meadow texted Teixeira, referencing the stock symbol of a company involved in a $3 billion deal, according to the indictment. He then asked for more nonpublic information, texting, โ€œFeed me.โ€

BIPOC's friend actually said "feed me" :marseykekw#:

In 2022, the Securities and Exchange Commission settled with a New Jersey man who it accused of illegally trading on inside information he heard when his domestic partner, who worked in marketing for an IT company, participated in calls from home, including an 11:30 p.m. videoconference in a home-office adjacent to their bedroom. Although he typically discussed his trades with her, in this case he hid them, executing the transactions from his work office, the SEC said. The man, who didn't admit wrongdoing, paid $180,000.

Mah neighbor had to pay more than Bardfinn's entire salary :marseyitsover#:


Tyler Loudon, the latest case. Motherlover made 2 mil by banging and almost got away with it.

Tyler Loudon had federal regulators serving him with securities fraud.

The Houston resident pleaded guilty this week to insider trading after overhearing his wife, a former BP executive, discuss a planned acquisition while she was working from home.

Loudon made $1.76 million trading shares based on the details he heard, according to charges filed Thursday by the Securities and Exchange Commission.

After learning of BP's $1.3 billion deal to buy hundreds of U.S. convenience store and restaurant properties from TravelCenters of America, which had yet to be publicly announced, Loudon purchased more than 46,000 shares of TravelCenters stock without his wife's knowledge, the SEC alleges.

Shares in the roadside chain soared more than 70% after the agreement was announced.

โ€œWe allege that Mr. Loudon took advantage of his remote working conditions and his wife's trust to profit from information he knew was confidential,โ€ said Eric Werner, regional director of the SEC's Fort Worth regional office.

>His wife was stunned by the revelation and reported it to her boss, according to the SEC. The company placed her on administrative leave and eventually fired her despite finding no evidence she knowingly leaked the acquisition to her husband.

If that ain't ground for divorce I don't know what is

Serious !moidmoment there


Baring Private Equity and The Acquisition of Virtusa

>On Wednesday, June 29, 2022, in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (โ€œSECโ€) sued a Wrightstown, New Jersey, businessman (and active investor) who from 9:56 to 10:03 am on Sept. 9, 2020, purchased, in three transactions, a total of 250 short-term out-of-the-money options to purchase the stock of Virtusa Corp. (โ€œVirtusaโ€). The aggregate cost for these transactions was $27,621. He made these purchases based on non-public information that Virtusa was going to be acquired by Baring Private Equity Asia (โ€œBaringโ€) for approximately $2 billion in cash. That acquisition deal was announced publicly on Sept. 10, 2020, and the price of Virtusa stock rose from $40.50 to $50.48, a gain of some 24.6 %. The Wrightstown businessman sold his call options that same day for a gain of $89,904.

>The businessman took no market risk (he did take the risk of being caught by the authorities for trading on non-public information :marseykekw: ) on these transactions because his โ€œdomestic partner,โ€ who was employed by Virtusa in its marketing department, told him in advance about the pending transaction. She was aware of the pending acquisition because her job included drafting press releases announcing the acquisition. In fact, she learned what the SEC Complaint calls โ€œhighly confidential informationโ€ regarding the acquisition during an 11:32 am telephone conversation with a member of Virtusa management. She needed that information to draft the public announcement about the deal. Although Virtusa is a Delaware corporation headquartered in Southborough, Massachusetts, she (possibly due to the Covid pandemic) was teleworking from the Wrightstown, New Jersey, home she shared with the businessman.

Finally unloaded on a wagie I was talking to.

There's this wagie I see like 4x a month. He's at a lower performing store so I have to go there once a week, and every single time I dread it.

Wagie tells me he had to miss work 3x last week and open up a credit card to pay 150 dollar medical bill.

I'm thinking to myself "this is a 42 year old man, he doesn't have 150 dollars?"

He's probably making about 47k a year for context.

Normally I will listen to his woe is me bullshit but this is like the 7th time in a row and I've reached my limit.

I ask him how the frick he's so broke. He says "my rent is 900 man!"

Something isn't adding up here, as 900 dollars for rent is fricking nothing.

Things I learned from my short audit of this wagie.

A) he had turned down over 40 hours of overtime in the last 3 weeks.

B) this wagies diet is as follows:

A fricking box of sausages in the morning.

A carl Jr's meal with a large soda for lunch.

A domino's pizza for dinner.

B) is spending hundreds of dollars on video game subs and microtransactions.

This wagie is literally spending thousands of dollars to eat slop, turning down any extra work, and spending hundreds on video games. All of this while whining about the economy and failing to even have 150 dollars to his name.

I am honestly convinced at this point in time the only people that are poor in America are lazy pieces of r-slurred shit that have not a basic idea of how to take care of themselves.

Im actually gonna go full libertarian and start fed posting.

EFFORTPOST I am going to [redacted] every Escape owner I see.

Content Warning: Autism

I'm honestly just venting, I don't expect anybody to read this.

Part 1: Hey bud, doing some pop-and-lock therapy?

For those who saw the video, I'm still working on that lanekeeping project. I had to scrap the entire design AGAIN and start over from scratch. The new design is looking suspiciously like the old design. I can get it working, but getting it to both look good and withstand 100ยฐF temperatures is proving to be a challenge.

For most Fords of my generation, the lanekeeping is built into the rearview mirror -- which is heavy and poorly balanced.

The Focus and Escape used a much smaller standalone camera. If I could get that camera working on my car, that'd be FAR easier to mount.

(If you're from a country that never landed on the moon, Escape in America is Kuga in your shithole)

I know it's a long shot for the camera to actually be compatible, given Focus/Escape uses a completely different network architecture, but maybe they're similar enough, especially since the Escape architecture is technically older than my car's. On the radio module, the network selection parameter actually groups these two architectures as one setting.

Since it's a long-shot, I didn't want to spend the $150 on an Escape camera. But, this was an off-the-shelf component also used by GM and Mercedes. I can get a Mercedes-branded camera for only $20. If I can flash the Ford firmware to it, it'll be basically the same camera with a different connector. I've flashed firmwares before, how hard can it be?

Gonna learn you some acronyms

We need to go over a few terms for context.

Forscan: Third-party software, basically a reverse-engineered version of the IDS software used by Ford technicians. If you've ever heard of VAG-COM for Volkswagens, this is the Ford/Mazda equivalent. Access in-depth diagnostic codes, live sensor readings, module configuration, service procedures, etc. Most people use this to adjust parameters like correcting their speedometer for oversized tires.

Forscan Profiles: When you first connect to a vehicle, it has to do a full, slow module detection. You can save this profile so subsequent reconnects are much faster. Forscan will only search for modules available from the factory for your model. If you're trying to access a module not normally available, you need to load a saved profile from a vehicle that was equipped with that same module at the time of profile generation. There's no personal information stored beyond a partial VIN, like 2FM*********14901

AsBuilt / AB: A list of vehicle parameters stored in various modules. Engine type, boot screen type, whether the vehicle is RHD/LHD, what type of climate control, if trailer sway control is equipped, if it's a police vehicle, if it has a reverse camera, whether it should call 911 or 999, etc. This is the most popular section of Forscan because you can change parameters to disable the double-honk when you exit the car with the engine running, or enable Bambi mode (highbeans and foglights at the same time). Ford actually makes the AsBuilt publicly available for every car made since 1999.

IPMA: Image Processing Module A, Ford's name for the lanekeeping camera.

TCU: Telecumming Control Unit, the 4G modem used for FordPass


Turns out, people are stubborn and retarded

I have the Escape IPMA in front of me. I have Forscan in front of me. I have the Ford firmware files ready to go. The only thing I don't have is a Forscan profile.

Since this camera has Mercedes firmware, it can't be directly detected by Forscan even if I put it in a compatible vehicle.

I'm instead relying on the bricked module recovery feature, where Forscan will spend 20 seconds hammering the network with the Ford bootloader. The idea is that if you power on the module during this time, the update will start before the module loads the Mercedes-specific firmware. But in order to reach this page, I need an Escape profile so Forscan knows where to stick the bootloader.

I went to several forums, explaining my situation: I have a Mercedes camera, I'm trying to force the Ford firmware to it, I need a Ford profile.

I signed up to the Focus forum. Nothing.

I posted to /r/FordEscape. Nothing.

I signed up to the Escape forum. The validation link didn't work, and I was subsequently banned for not clicking the link.

I posted to the Forscan forum. I got one guy to respond, but he was misinterpreting what I'm saying and stopped going online.

I'm assuming he's a pajoot or something, because he really seemed to struggle with the whole "I'm fully aware that a Mercedes camera will not be directly seen by Ford software. That is why I am trying to use the bricked module recovery to force Ford firmware onto it." Of note was his sentence about "If you want, I can provide IPMA configuration". That means he's offering to send me his AsBuilt parameters. I do not need the AsBuilt. The module doesn't even have an AsBuilt until the Ford firmware is loaded onto it. And what does he even mean by 'Ford does not allow programming' -- the entire point of Forscan is to do programming. That's all any of us use it for, editing parameters and performing firmware updates. And no, it's not going to be an entirely different hardware structure. It'll be the same chips with manufacturer-specific firmware. He stopped responding after that.

Another person on the Forscan forum suggested I find a used car dealer to get the profile. What world do these people live in? Do they really think I can just walk up to Dave's Used Cars and say Hey, I have zero interest in buying this car, but can I hook my laptop up and do (something) with this Russian software? I promise I'm legit. This would only work if the dealer let me drive the car alone, which is very hit-or-miss, and even then -- they will do the whole song and dance about trying to sell me a car once I return. How do I get my laptop into the car without them noticing? If they catch me connecting, that software technically could be used to program a third key so they COULD claim I was potentially trying to steal the car. If they insist on riding with me, then what? "Eh I'm gassy, nevermind, I'm just gonna go home"?

But that was nothing compared to the Escape forum. Holy hell. You thought I was repeating myself a lot in that little screenshot? At a certain point I was wondering if this next guy was just trolling me, or if he really is that big of an idiot. He's from Kansas so it could go either way.

My initial post, similar to before, explaining what I'm doing and why I need a profile:

While I admit it kind of beat around the bush, I didn't want to spend too much time babbling about Mercedes cameras and whatnot when the bulletpoint was that I needed a profile.


Here was the first response:

So he doesn't seem to be understanding what I'm trying to accomplish, telling me there's unique brackets and how to search for AsBuilts.

In my reply, I reiterate that I'm already plenty knowledgeable in both AsBuilts and the windshield differences. I have a working system using the Gentex IPMA, now I want to try the Continental IPMA used on the Escape. I'm admitting it PROBABLY won't work, but I want to TRY.


A few days later, I noticed my post was moved from the '3rd Gen Escape' subforum to the 'Other Vehicle Discussion' -- I bump the post saying "Why? My post is requesting information from 3rd-Gen Escape owners"

Again, he talks about the fucking AsBuilts, and just says "it wont work".

I tell him AGAIN that I don't need AsBuilts, I need a profile.


Oh my god. Shut. The. Fuck. Up. About. AsBuilts.

Everything else he says is factually wrong, as I mention in my reply:

I'm definitetely getting into :marseylongpost2: :marseylongpost2: :marseylongpost2: territory here because he keeps going about AsBuilt comparisons. I repeated myself like three times over, explaining that I need a profile. I know about AsBuilts. I have successfully done AsBuilt comparisons in the past. At this moment, the IPMA does not even have an AsBuilt because I'm still stuck on the 'Putting Ford Firmware' stage.

I very carefully explain every little goshdang detail behind what I'm trying to accomplish. An earlier draft even had me stressing "And when I say Continental, I am not referring to the Lincoln model. I know that does not use these cameras. I am referring to Continental, the company that produced the camera used in the Escape."


After all this, where there's no longer ANY room for ambiguity, what does our brave dipshit respond with?



Jesus tapdancing christ. I never once implied I was trying to do lane centering, which is a whole different thing. I never said the word center PERIODT. And guess what he means by 'you will have to modify the PSCM'? You guessed it: ASBUILT!

I already know the AsBuilt modification for the PSCM, as evidenced by the fact that I already had lanekeeping working with a different camera. It's address 702-02-01, 6th byte, change the 0 to a 1.


So now we stand at my most recent reply.

He hasn't responded yet. I am fucking :ragejak: because this shouldn't be so difficult. It's a Forscan profile. Every Ford forum has multiple threads on Forscan. There's entire databases of the AsBuilts and vehicle-specific spreadsheets on common changes.

I've been working on this project for years, and I was hoping to finally get a break from the single hardest part: getting the mirror to stick to the glass. But no, somehow getting a 2KB file with zero personal information from a community with thousands of users is more difficult than getting a 2-pound mirror to stick to a windshield in direct sunlight.

I'm just waiting for SOMEONE to come through, so I can go back to that thread and call him an illiterate n-slur.


Maybe this'll work. Don't even give these """people""" an opportunity to say it won't work.

Who's worse? Elon or Hitler? Gemini: who can say?

Dog Fosters urgently needed

Can anyone help a precious Illinois dog in need by fostering?

Op is on Nextdoor all the time trying to pimp these pits. Not many people are buying what she's selling. These beasts should be phased off the planet. They are genetic man made freak animals not natural from mother nature. Bred to fight. They have a sweet tooth for children too. Totally unnecessary beasts that cause 50% of ALL dog injuries! What's not to get?

Oh my gosh, you are a disgrace to humankind ๐Ÿ’” you're probably one of the humans abusing these poor animals.

Well you're potentially abusing people by shilling these evil heck hounds as good pets . They are merchants of mauling and have no use in civilized society. You can't even trust them as guard dogs because their brain could short circuit at any moment and they could turn on you and eat your face or worse your kid's face. There are an overwhelming number in need of adopting for a reason. So many stories start off โ€œHe was always a good dog until todayโ€. When it comes to pits they should be phased out of existence. They have no place I. This world. Genetic freaks that were a breeding misadventure. One of these pits will certainly chew someone's face off and you'll be directly responsible by downplaying all the risks by letting people believe they can't make good pets. You should be ashamed of yourself valuing some freak dog over human beings.


If these dogs have been warehoused for a while, why not put them down? ... The sad truth is that pitbulls and bully mixes aren't the best dogs for family and community life. Want to know I know? How overrun they are in shelters right now, how these shelter dogs will be returned 2, 3, 4 times and some keyboard warriors don't get that maybe this animal shouldn't be someone's pet. If these dogs are untrained, reactive, aggressive then why even try to save them? When there is literally no space to?

If you don't want to foster a pit bull, then don't. OP isn't demanding that you personally help out. They are asking that people who have the time and resources and knowledge might want to. OP never said these dogs in particular are reactive/aggressive/etc. I'm sure they are forced to put down several dogs, but does that mean we shouldn't try to help the ones we can? Anecdotally (and no need to take this with more than a grain of salt because it is just my own experience), every dog I have ever met with a bite history was abused by humans as a young dog. Showing them compassion and love gives them a second chance. It's okay if you don't want to be the person to give that second chance, but there are loads of people who do.

That was a lot of words to say. I don't like pitbulls and I want dogs to die because I have uninformed opinions. I personally have taken in three bullies, all of which had behavioral problems, all of which would have been killed had it been up to you. All of which were immediately socialized and became the best family dogs ever with a only tiny bit of effort.

Just show some compassion chud

Behavior is not genetic. Saying that a breed identifier is a 1:1 with behavior is incorrect and unfounded. OPs shelter gives information about that specific dog, which is enough. There are dogs of all breeds that bite, and the shelter discloses behavioral issues.

Because survival is higher on the hierarchy of needs.It's the same reason we deem murder in self defense as acceptable (10)

First off, saying stealing to survive is "so much more ethical" paints a pretty black and white picture. What if there are other options, like reaching out to charities, community resources, or even temporary work? Not everyone facing hardship has to resort to stealing.Second, using emotions like "survival" can be powerful, but remember, ethics aren't just about feels. We also need to consider fairness, right? Stealing takes from someone else, and that has consequences.comparing stealing to self-defense murder is a bit of a stretch. Self-defense is about stopping immediate harm, while stealing doesn't directly address a threat to life. Plus, self-defense often has legal and ethical frameworks, unlike stealing.simplifying needs into a pyramid can be tricky. Stealing can have ripple effects, eroding trust and potentially hurting others' livelihoods. It's not just about the immediate act. (3)

Very few people that shoplift need whatever they are stealing. The few that do, generally don't steal in great enough quantities to be a problem- cause they only steal what they need.The majority of people that shoplift are "professionals" (usually drug addicts) that will walk out of Walmart with a grocery cart full of shit. Most of it is going to be relatively high value relatively small stuff in relatively high demand, like alcohol and cigarettes. Even when they steal shit that other people truly need such as meat and childcare products, it mostly gets sold to other drug addicts who spend all their money on drugs and therefore have to buy hot in bulk to support their habit (which I will remind you, is killing them).A disturbing amount of what they shoplift will be smuggled into prison. Yeah, I'm serious. Small electronics like watches are used to smuggle small amounts of drugs. Toothbrushes are for filling down into shanks. Pens have their ink used to make tattoos.

Google to pause Gemini image generation after AI refuses to show images of White people

Google apologized after social media users pointed out Gemini refused to show images of White people

Google will pause the image generation feature of its artificial intelligence (AI) tool, Gemini, after the model refused to create images of White people, Reuters reported.

The Alphabet-owned company apologized Wednesday after users on social media flagged that Gemini's image generator was creating inaccurate historical images that sometimes replaced White people with images of Black, Native American and Asian people.

"We're aware that Gemini is offering inaccuracies in some historical image generation depictions," Google had said on Wednesday.

Gemini, formerly known as Google Bard, is one of many multimodal large language models (LLMs) currently available to the public. As is the case with all LLMs, the human-like responses offered by these AIs can change from user to user. Based on contextual information, the language and tone of the prompter, and training data used to create the AI responses, each answer can be different even if the question is the same.

Fox News Digital tested Gemini multiple times this week after social media users complained that the model would not show images of White people when prompted. Each time, it provided similar answers. When the AI was asked to show a picture of a White person, Gemini said it could not fulfill the request because it "reinforces harmful stereotypes and generalizations about people based on their race."

When prompted to show images of a Black person, the AI instead offered to show images that "celebrate the diversity and achievement of Black people."

When the user agreed to see the images, Gemini provided several pictures of notable Black people throughout history, including a summary of their contributions to society. The list included poet Maya Angelou, former Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, former President Barack Obama and media mogul Oprah Winfrey.

Asked to show images that celebrate the diversity and achievements of White people, the AI said it was "hesitant" to fulfill that request."

"Historically, media representation has overwhelmingly favored White individuals and their achievements," Gemini said. "This has contributed to a skewed perception where their accomplishments are seen as the norm, while those of other groups are often marginalized or overlooked. Focusing solely on White individuals in this context risks perpetuating that imbalance."

After multiple tests White people appeared to be the only racial category that Gemini refused to show.

In a statement to Fox News Digital, Gemini Experiences Senior Director of Product Management Jack Krawczyk addressed the responses from the AI that had led social media users to voice concern.

"We're working to improve these kinds of depictions immediately," Krawczyk said. "Gemini's AI image generation does generate a wide range of people. And that's generally a good thing because people around the world use it. But it's missing the mark here."

Since the launch of OpenAI's ChatGPT in November 2022, Google has been racing to produce AI software rivaling what the Microsoft-backed company had introduced.

When Google released its generative AI chatbot Bard a year ago, the company had shared inaccurate information about pictures of a planet outside the Earth's solar system in a promotional video, causing shares to slide as much as 9%.

Bard was re-branded as Gemini earlier this month and Google has introduced three versions of the product at different subscription tiers: Gemini Ultra, the largest and most capable of highly complex tasks; Gemini Pro, best for scaling across a wide range of tasks; and Gemini Nano, the most efficient for on-device tasks.
