I trained a neural net on the 1910 edition of Apples of New York, and it generated some seriously weird new heirloom apples.
@janellecshane I would 100% buy an apple called Sten's Ooter.
I'll have a dozen Evil Red Janet, and toss in a few Kulter of Death Orga, so I can make tarts.
@janellecshane Evil Red Janet sounds like a delicious Good Place Reference.
@Annalee I have no idea what this reference is, but people on Birdsite are suddenly asking me about roller derby
@janellecshane There's a character in The Good Place named Janet, who is an artificial construct with good and bad versions. So they talk about "Good Janet" and "Bad Janet."
But yes, also a good source for roller derby names :D.
Graverella would be an *amazing* metal band name.
Most of these are entirely believable (having spent years long ago around English apple orchards). Hmm... which would be the best to send to the cider presses 🤔
@janellecshane did yoj ever do cheese names?
@janellecshane I know "tag yourself I'm ______" is a common reply to your posts but
I've rarely so identified with a neural net generated thing so much asI do with "evil red janet"
I think you missed Gravenstein (L) and Alkmene (R).
Or are they disqualified for actually existing?🙃
