Classic Robot Apocalypse: Be Afraid

Here's the first jaunt through the archives of the mailing list. For those of you that are here for the first time, I must warn you: What you are about to see may change your life forever.

Our first specimen is big dog. It's supposedly being developed for use as a robotic pack mule. I contend that they're going to place machine gun turrets on it's back and rig it up with heat sensors and motion detectors, and send them out on seek and destroy missions. Target? You...


The next in our lineup is a robot snake. This is another sweet little DARPA project.

If your mind doesn't reel at the nefarious possibilities, it's a sure sign that your skull will be among the first of those crushed by robotic tank treads in Terminator 4.

Did you see that? No, not Batman vs. The Terminator. The crushed skull. Yea, the one that could be yours. You're so entirely doomed.
