Robots Are Our Friends

Sorry that the proportions don’t allow you the full view (I had to make it smaller to fit this main column), but you get the idea. Robots, sweet robots. 🙂 Thank you, Mystery Bob and Albino Blacksheep!

    Haha! Just how I expect my future overlords to treat me.

    Opps! So much for Isaac Asimov’s three laws of robotics. Of course Bill Gates unintentionally did away with the Asimov’s three laws with the introduction of Windows. They don’t call the blue screen of death for nothing you know.

    It’s actuallyinteresting you brought that up. An Air Canada Flight from Victoria to Toronto put 10 people in the hospital when the flight computer of the A319 went haywire and had to make an emergency landing in Calgary. The press called it a “control problem”. Apparently the aircraft plunged several thousand feet and suffered a severe yawing moment. So that begs the question in a flyby wire control system when the computer has a moment of programming instability who exactly is in control of the aircraft? Would you like to guess? The computer.

    That was a great video. Thanks for sharing it.

    The first link in a google search under World Robot Domination is to your TWIS music compilation.

    The lyrics to Sudden Deaths “World Robot Domination”, which is on the TWIS cd, just crack me up. I wonder what my toaster thinks. 🙂

    From the song:

    “It seemed like a good plan when it all began
    Robots were devised to help the lives of man
    Doing a couple odd jobs that we didn’t want to do
    And some really odd jobs in a bedroom or two
    As time went on, they got more advanced
    Began to sing and dance and even make fun of France
    They used to brush my teeth, and pick out my clothes
    Heck, I even had a robot just to pick my nose
    More and more each day they infiltrated our lives
    We knew we had a problem when they infiltrated our wives

    But exactly when this thought became a fact to me
    Was when my dishwasher started talking back to me
    After that, we knew we were betrayed by science
    I can’t argue with my wife, let alone an appliance
    So knowing that I didn’t want to wind up dead
    I kept my mouth shut and did what the toaster said”

    You have always found ways to make me laugh.
    Yet again I am smiling without knowing why I am smiling about mechanical decapitating beings.
    Glad to know you are doing well. Christmas still has me rolling. I was looking forward to a holiday to put in the scrapbook, even though everyone else thought it was a mess.
    Missing you profusely. And all that. We should get together again before we are late. As in the late Aurthur Dent. Hee hee.
    Love Ya!

    Speak all your funky mind. I like Disserting.
    My last comment got moderated right out of the site. Your filter is a little harsh but that’s what you get for using a robot.
    Love Ya!
