I think that we absolutely will see a lethal visual cognitohazard in our lifetime, leading to the shutdown of multimedia on the internet. and yes, I am excited

I was playing with art breeder several months ago and created an image that made me involuntarily scream and immediately change the gene parameters. I'd love to be able to find that image again but it's lost forever, presumably

it's not even what you'd think. it looked like denim pants with a fetid green fluid splattered all over them. something about it triggered something deep within me

@SuricrasiaOnline i remain under the optimistic hope that there will never be a visual cognitohazard that can take out a majority of people and that there'll be a "effectiveness" vs "applicability" trade-off

@SuricrasiaOnline I don't understand this. Is there something I can read so I can get some easy context on wtf this is about? :blobcatpeek: pretty plz? Like, I recognize most words you used, but put like that they just don't make sense to me, nor do they tell me anything, so I know I'm just missing context and perhaps a framework too. :blobcatgooglytrash:

Thanks in any case, and thanks for your attention!

@SuricrasiaOnline Let's assume said cognitohazard has already been discovered, but is being kept secret to prevent widescale panic while an automated censorship system is put in place to reduce harm in case of a breach, then the patterns of online censorship provides a clue of what it might look like.

In short, this cognitohazard probably resembles a pair of supple, femme-coded breasts, or a pair of sandy hills.

@SuricrasiaOnline We can also determine that the cognitohazard is probably featured, by accident, in one of the recent Marvel movies, but that they lost track of which one.

@SuricrasiaOnline I think we already had The-Ring-But-On-The-Internet type movies.
