I dont really know what tiktok is (and dont want to know), same for instagram, I sort of know what twitter and facebook are,
but have no intention of ever signing up with any of them.
T'would seem to me that you have to be a bit brain dead to tell all about yourself, incl real name, address, when you are going away on hols, where you hide your
cash and jewellery etc. If I was about to burgle you, I think facebook would be the first place I would look you up and see where you are vulnerable.
I guess private investigators have it made today, just have to look up your fb page.
[also prospective employers etc, fb can be dangerous/damaging, just look at the mess Donald gets into with social media]

FranceBB, Brainstorm thingy is just a parallel to the optical illusion that I'm sure you have been confabulated by.
Dolphins and whales have brains bigger than a human, we used to judge inteligence on brain size up until somebody pointed out
that whales had bigger brains whereupon we moved the goalposts to put us up front again [brain size as proportion of body size].
Whales big brain is mainly for handling audio and echo location in the depths, it takes a lot of processing and it aint clear cut what any sound is [unlike a spelt word],
different people can say the same word, where different sex, age, regional or national accent, and yet we may still recognise the same word, there is a lot
of brain work going on there, and sometimes we can be given clues [or led astray] by different cues [like watching lips, or reading or thinking or anticipating a word].

To me, Brainstorm and Green Needle should not sound anything like each other, thats what is freaky about it.
But try with headphones if you can, and also maybe see if anyone else you know (who speaks in an equally odd native tongue) can experience the aural illusion.
(The 4th link below has two [Aussie I think] radio hosts saying the words Green Needle and Brainstorm, in a 'variety' of English).

Some attempts at explainations:

Optical illusion that apparently causesd a lot of fuss back in 2015.

The Dress - Blue & Black or White & Gold. [apparently years of research into color perception followed this illusion]

I see White and Gold.

Well yeah...
I don't have TikTok, Instagram and other things.
The only thing I have in terms of Social Networks are LinkedIn and Facebook 'cause I follow politicians and it's helpful to keep contacts with some of my friends and old colleagues, but that's it... and most importantly, I post only what I want while there are people taking pictures with their smartphones (not even a decent camera) all the time... Oh and hashtags... Hashtags are probably the smartest thing programmers invented: they tricked people into labelling their pictures and manually insert meta tags by letting them think it's "cool", so people began to take pictures and post things like: "#Sunbating" or "#Ice cream" or "#At home" and so on. People at FB are geniuses xD

Well, what makes me wonder is the fact that people like the random teen coming out from Love Island on ITV or other "Instagram Models" or "Influencers" and so on actually find a way to make money out of these things and have their bit of popularity...

Ok, so I'm not mad, they really don't sound anything like each other. xD

Not just in my mind. :P
Jokes aside, you're probably one of the few people I can play around with without taking what I say seriously.
(And on the other hand, there's a bit a truth about the average Doom9 age from a poll I made a while ago as Statistics don't lie xD)

Tis true, most of us on the D9 are ol' farts, with the odd exception that just thinks he's an ol' fart, eg Feisty. [a 21 YO-ish ol' fart, that has been an ol' fart for quite some years].

[I dont really know what a hashtag is, nor how one would use it, dont tell me, ignorance can indeed be bliss].

Whoa whoa whoa. And here I am using XP x64 Edition like a fucking tool. Where did you get that? How much stuff can it run that theoretically isn't supposed to run under XP anymore? WoW? Steam? Minecraft?

This is way off topic, but still... if you are willing to try an XP based OS, I think you should try Windows Shorthorn http://shorthornproject.com/
It's XP/Server 2003 based, but has many improvements, including a modified kernel that includes more functions and allows to run programs and drivers that wouldn't normally run on XP.
This is the closest thing you can get to an updated Windows XP.

Cheers.
EDIT: To see more on it, search "PAE" for user "FranceBB" [posts].
I had a bit of a look at ShortHorn project some years ago, think was originally targetting Vista [WinNT 6.0] API's rather than W7 [WinNT 6.1].

Well we're still actively working on the One Core API. You could technically install One Core API on a perfectly valid version of XP, however I would advise you against that as it's still not stable.
By the way, I didn't "find" it, we (me, Dibya, Samuel, Peter, Barcode and others) made it.
If you are interested in the project, this is our GitHub page:

Source code: https://github.com/Skulltrail192/One-Core-Api

Binaries: https://github.com/Skulltrail192/One-Core-API-Binaries

In this very moment we're working on backporting Chromium to get a proper updated browser. In the meantime, you can use Roytam's modded browsers that you can find here: http://rtfreesoft.blogspot.com/search/label/browser?m=1

They're all updated and support TLS1.3, however they're all Firefox based.
I gotta say, though, that despite we've been actively working on it for years, we've made very little progress recently as there are still tons of kernel calls that have to be backported. Its usage it's simple: there are two kernel and a modified HAL among other things. Whenever a call is valid/legacy, it goes directly to the old kernel and comes back, if however a call is new, it's either redirected to an old call which would behave the same (like GetThickCount64 which is redirected to GetThickCount) or, if it's not available in the original kernel, it's redirected to a new kernel which is made by us and it's based on both reactOS and Wine. As to the Hardware Abstraction Layer, on x86 its main thing is to allow PAE up to 64 GB of RAM just like it does on Windows Server 2003, while on x64 is basically the one from Windows Server 2003 x64 which has been modified and transplanted to make it work with XP x64. We've also managed to get compatibility with some Vista drivers and we're targeting Win7, however our biggest challenge now is to get it working on UEFI as it's 2020 and Intel will be removing BIOS compatibility from next year, but unfortunately, we're not there yet...

Hmmmm, so I'd still be stuck using hardware from 2014. Damn.

Maybe it would be easier to take a more modern version of Windows, bundle it with Classic Shell 4.3.1, strip out UAC and other nonsense, change all the default settings to mimic 95/98/2k as accurately as possible, and forward-port the old Photo Viewer (the one that would show animated gifs correctly), the Classic and Luna themes, and any bits of the XP kernel that are necessary to get older programs (Doom 3, Premiere Pro 2.0) to work?

Well, the problem is, we would probably all be fined and the project would be shut down if we ever try to do anything like that due to the licensing and the patents that Microsoft holds on those products...

MS doesn't sell software. They literally give the ISOs away on their website these days. What they sell are activation keys. As long as whatever you distribute still requires activation, MS won't care.

They're much more likely to go after Windows 10 integral edition; that guy hosts an activation crack, though he doesn't bundle it with the OS.
