Iโ€™m getting more useless by the minute

Really need a document for this and an automated scores test
Didnโ€™t get it, but itโ€™s a fair one and I should have
Got this one. I tried to make one for this but it got too long. This solution is good because it points just enough instead of reproducing like I was trying.

I think the most fun ones are relatively easy to guess but pay off in unexpected elegance due to emoji approximation serendipity

Arbitrary ones are hard to emojify
Joint credit to @abhayance and @chaosprime for this one

๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ˜Š?
๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ˜ง?!
The nice thing about this game is both crafting the best puzzle for a meme and guessing it can be fun

Crafting is a bit subjective of course, but I personally enjoy the aha factor of a clean solution thatโ€™s unambiguous once you see it
Ok this is a good alt to the last one. I didnโ€™t get it partly because the more detailed emoji are harder for me to read. His gets zoom effect but I prefer the previous solution for clearer expressions/affect
Letโ€™s play the reverse challenge for a bit. Here are some I tried but couldnโ€™t solve elegantly

virgin/chad
money printer go brrr
Suspicious Fry
Based Pepe/fallen virgin

Full alt to @tubelite solution a few tweets up. I prefer the short form, but this does make it unmistakeable
This solves it technically by pointing accurately, but is somehow unsatisfying because it doesnโ€™t capture the spiritโ€ฆ maybe bookend with ๐Ÿ˜ฉ and ๐Ÿคฃ
Hmm. Works, though I might add a โ›ต๏ธ
Ok gonna call this thread done now. Iโ€™m not getting most of the replies now, and since Iโ€™m about average, Iโ€™m guessing most of you will struggle with the residuals too. Trawl the replies if you want the black belt stuff.

Cobra Kai S4. Here we go.
This show is an example of what I meant by โ€œefficient lean storytellingโ€

It is almost unbearably efficient. Like pure cocaine. The Hollywood beat-formula machine at its most finely tuned operating on extremely native material.
This show is the most complete and thorough reboot/continuation Iโ€™ve ever seen. All the character arcs and unresolved tensions seamlessly continued. The introduction of the Terry Silver character is so smooth itโ€™s like there was no 30-year gap.

By analogy to โ€œBig Data is when itโ€™s cheaper to store data than decide what to do with it,โ€ (George Dyson)

you could say

โ€œBig Frontier is when itโ€™s cheaper to experiment with something than determine if itโ€™s a scamโ€
Itโ€™s the flip side of brandolini bullshit asymmetry principle: takes 10x effort to refute it than produce it. The solution is to not try: just cap downsides of buying into bullshit and let the upside from legit things swamp it out.
The biggest risk in civilizational cores is being scammed. The biggest risk in frontiers is not playing.

Has anyone experimented with barter nfts? I borrow a cup of sugar from neighbor and issue him a โ€œcup of sugar nftโ€ โ€ฆ solves dual coincidence of needs problems without a fungible currency. Crypto-hardened IOUs.
Solving for neighborhood favor trading liquidity and market-making, not enforceability. Enforcement is always solved with either guns or mutuality (aka iterated prisoners dilemma)
Idea: token representing line โ€œthis could just be a databaseโ€

Whenever someone says that, you send a screenshot to a minting contract and it issues you a token if youโ€™re first. Proof-of-backlash blockchain ๐Ÿค”

Other qualifying comments: โ€œcrypto uses more electricity than Xโ€ etc

I'm apparently an $SOS millionaire ๐Ÿฅณ

Cost me $14 in gas to claim $21 in $SOS ๐Ÿ˜

Web3 is so bouba-in-bouba-out. BIBO. Image
If you're gonna do an airdrop, it pays to make sure dollars turn into millions for that extra bouba feeling

happy festivus to me!
Basically it seems like it's impossible to do anything non-trivial on Web3 without making money

VR/AR peopleโ€ฆ is there a term for the virtual material out of which virtual environments can be said to be built? Like with atoms Iโ€™d say โ€œwall of concreteโ€ โ€ฆ Iโ€™d sayโ€wall of Xโ€?

If not we should make up a term.

I propose renderium or rendrial or rendrilโ€ฆ
In-illusion term, not an illusion-breaking term like mesh.
Not voxels either. No terms pointing to an out-of-illusion design process or tools. If you bought virtual girders at a metaverse store to virtually build something in-world, what would the store call it generally? You can specify furtherโ€ฆ renderium steel, renderium wool
