Galliformes, the order of bird that chickens belong to, is directly linked to the survival of birds when all other dinosaurs went extinct.

As the series' storyline progressed, it documented Louie's enlisting the assistance of an inept ferret hit man, who tries to kill the frogs by dismantling and dropping the Budweiser neon sign into the swamp water, thus electrocuting them. Although this assassination attempt failed, it resulted in Weis developing post-electroshock muscular irregularity. Louie briefly replaced Weis in the Bud-Weis-Er cheer, but ended up getting all of them fired, due to Louie's inability to just follow the script. The other frogs in return gave him a literal tongue-lashing and revealed to Louie that they could speak with a complete vocabulary and that they knew all along about his plot against them. These three frogs then began a new lifestyle as flashy tap-dancing and Fred Astaire-mimicking acts on Broadway.

these aristophanes adaptations are getting ridiculous

why would the ai even bother tho. you have no way of knowing if it even bothers to simulate you or not so it doesn’t make any difference and why would it waste the resources when it could be doing something interesting.

as gwbbq noted the core premise of all of this is that the ai is god and has infinite resources

ah, is this the usual fallacy where nerds assume that an infinite number of possibilities implies that every possibility happens?

I mean we haven’t though have we, we’ve detected evidence of mercury contamination in the area but nobody knows yet whether that’s the tomb leaking or just modern industrial contamination (according to my expert knowledge on the subject, aka “I browsed the wikipedia article just now”)
