Who watches the robot watchmen?

You know, there's an old saying that goes something like 'the empty can rattles the most', but I've never let that dissuade me from trying to inform the public at large about the dangers of the upcoming Robo-apocalypse. There are many of my peers who have dismissed me as a lone nut.

Well, it's high time that they took me seriously. I am not alone in my concern. In fact, there are many others out there who are also concerned about the imminent demise and/or enslavement of humanity at the hands of androids. They've issued the call to unite, and they've created a rallying point here. These guys are totally serious. They use flash. They're not fucking around.

I must point out, however, that Dr. Layman (How awesome a name is that, btw?) makes one fatal error in that he entertains the notion that there may be an upside to progression of technology. This, my friends, is a deadly blunder. As evidenced in the documentaries 'Terminator', 'The Matrix', '2001: A Space Odyssey', and countless others, any AI worth its salt will immediately realize that humans are a waste of space and get rid of us as soon as we've outlived our usefulness.

You should never trust a toaster. It can only burn you.


Thanks to Scott for the tip!

"These guys are totally serious. They use flash. They're not fucking around."

That has to be my favorite line. I'm sending it to all my developer buddies.

The earth's superpowers must advance technology in order to maintain status as a world power... This makes all of the world powers and their people slaves of technology... The war for the future of humanity has been fought and won by his own creation... If you surrender peacefully we may keep you around as pets.
