      What’s with the garden gnome mask?

        Probably a low profile gas mask.

        The mask was supposed to be a blast shield. The thought process was that it would help to protect the wearer from a nuclear blast. Here's a video from the time period about it:

          I have come to realize it only wants 3 boxes. In rare occasions two with the singular picture and you can often get away with 4 with the multi small scene. But it wants 3 correct squares.

        The real play is to deliberately feed it mistakes to introduce errors into future pretrained networks.

        Honestly, the irony of anti-robot checks being one of the main tools for training robots shouldn't be lost on anyone.

          Bad idea I'd say.
          It'd normalize the use of nukes in war, which would probably have lead to some kind of nuclear exchange between the US and USSR.
          As is that mental fear of nukes was a big part of why that never happened, on top of general concerns about being able to beat the other on both sides.

            The US probably could of destroyed the Soviet Union in 1950 with its nukes and come out relatively unscathed.

                On the scale of a nuclear war death toll, that is pretty light.

                You're assuming the US in the 50's is the same as in our 20's. A brainlet move, to be honest, since cities and their populations were different back then.

                Patton would have loved Korea. He would never have made a position like that though, he was too blunt. War was his forte and politics his weakness.
