It's interesting to see whose features punch through the noise.  I clearly see Edward Norton, Roger Moore, and Linda Carter.  I can pick out bits of Tobey Maguire, TV's Louis and CLark's Superman and Pierce Brosnan.

Doesn't mean also that in ten year they don't decide to do something new with Wolverine and find another actor.
If nothing else, Wolverine is too popular to remain dead in the comics.

I actually knew the Who's that Noisy last week because of you, Andrew. I told Jay the name of the thread, about  how his very own forums might generate a few extra correct answers this week...
thought it was worth a very short mention on air, but naw.

Quote
Guetzli, according to Google Research, uses a new psychovisual model—called Butteraugli, if you must know—to work out which colours and details to keep, and which to throw away. "Psychovisual" in this case means it's based on the human visual processing system. The exact details of Butteraugli are buried within hundreds of high-precision constants, which produce a model that "approximates colour perception and visual masking in a more thorough and detailed way" than other encoders.
The coolness here, just to be pedantic, isn't that Google came out with a new way to compress image files. BIG WHOOP. They came out with a new way to compress image files so that they're smaller than the current tech but actually look *better* to the human eye because the compression is based on how human vision works. :o
Speak what you think now in hard words, and to-morrow speak what to-morrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict every thing you said to-day.
