Two completely unrelated things that are crazy!

One of them is crazy cool, and one of them is crazy huh?

First up, scientists are using living, cultured rat brain cells to run a flight simulator program. This is, in fact, crazy! Did science-fiction ever predict organic AI? (I suppose it isn’t really AI…it’s more like sticking instinct into a plane. But as the article states, the neurons learn as they go…if sustained, how much might they learn…?)

Secondly, we’ve got a self-identified “squatter” who broke into another woman’s house with a shovel, moved in a washer and dryer and her pet, and changed the electricity into her name. She was even wearing the owner’s clothing.

“There’s a lot of people saying, ‘What?'” [Chief Sheriff’s Deputy Stan] Copeland said.
