What do you mean, outrun?
The fridge shows the snow animation for the weather today :-) (It was terribly cold today, at most 17C, but it's certainly not a winter.) I think my IoT went loco.

Perhaps the IoT sensor fell in the freezer.

Is that a weather forecast it's showing? I thought it was about the time format..

Maybe it's being dramatic and trying to be conversational about the weather, its way of saying "it's terribly cold". What's the brand? HAL9000? Does it say "I can't do that Kat" when you want a midnight snack?

That would be like my mind was uploaded to the fridge memory chip. Hmm, that doesn't speak well about my brain condition - human brain apparently stores petabytes. BTW, when I reseted the location to London, it showed tropical palms under a stary night sky.

Sigh. Zie tricked you into "London, Kiribati". If this is what it's going to be like then you and your fridge are going to have a very long tiring relationship.

That's what they want you to think.
It's obvious that the hand+cellphone reflection you see on the screen is not the reflection of the cellphone that took the picture you see:  the fridge screen is at an angle. This means that they wanted us to think there was  2nd photographer in the room. But why? Is this a CIA cover-up like with JFK?

Conspiration theory is generally last record, when fundamentals, latest news, funds, charts, randomness and Trump’s tweets all fail to understand market moves.
Are you OK, outrun? outrun, are you OK?

See, ppauper, you need to look deeper into things, just as with the Israel-Palestine conflict.
BTW, I magnified the photo 10,000 times and run a face recognition algorithm. This is what I got at 12031 x 450989 pixel:

I know her. She's CIA. I need to warn my cats that they are under surveillance.

153 day old lettuce. The joy of having a vegetable drawer hidden in your fridge.

Taking about vegetables: I'm at the university library and they are decorating it for a tech festival. Next to me are 6 tables where they re-do an old "let's try to grow plants on mars" experiment. The plants they are growing are Rucola.. what you guys call "Rocket Salad"

Mars.. Rocket Salad.. more conspiracies..

I have rarely felt so satisfied with our dumb old fridge. The worst thing it has done is to occasionally refuse to produce ice cubes automatically. But that can be circumvented manually. 153 days old lettuce?

Is the library on Mars? That would explain the angle in the photo (and the experiment would make sense).

bearish, I think I scanned some food half a year ago and only now the fridge decided to warn me that it was expiring.
