The Devil-Robot's Robot-Hound.

Man, I have been living under a rock. I missed this!

"Why did they teach it to get up?" my wife exclaimed as she started to sob.

There is no part of that video that I like. At all.

Back on The Grid

Sorry about the black-out folks. I was collaborating with our Robot Overlords to ensure your unavoidable and ultimate doom lying low in a safe-house until I could give my robot-assassins from the future the slip.

But now that the heat has died down, I'm back. At least for a little bit. And just in time, too! I have things that you need to see. Trust me. I would never lead you astray.

The first thing that you should know, is that they're watching us. Or at least, someone is. To paraphrase the link, a virus whose payload was a keystroke logger has been found on the systems that are used to fly our country's Predator and Reaper drones. Some speculate that it could be just one of the everyday mundane virii that made it's way onto military systems, or that it could be an enemy of our country penetrating our systems in order to wage cyber-warfare. Almost everyone agrees that it is definitely one or the other.

Except for those few of us who are able to connect the dots. Remember apprenticeship learning? Now, I'm not advocating any crack-pot conspiracy theories on this site. But on the other hand, I really love advocating crack-pot conspiracy theories. One must admit, that this crime matches Standford's Apprenticeship Learning's MO almost perfectly.

Let's look at the facts of the situation.

Remote controlled aircraft? Check.
Observing pilots through their control input? Check.

Oh Standford? What hath thou wrought?

Secondly, I would like to give accolades to M.C. Frontalot in his efforts to educate people about the oncoming apocalypse. Observe now his heroic effort:

Lastly, I would like issue a warning to all who may read this. There are enemy sympathizers among you. They lurk these very forums. An anonymous collaborator dropped this diddy in the comments section while I was away.

To Anonymous Collaborator:

If you a robot, then congratulations Sir. I see that you may be capable of passing a Turing test.

If you are but man, then shame on you for perpetuating petulant propaganda.

To All Good Men:

Ignore this filth, and remember to regard with suspicion anyone who might portray us as equals to our Robot Overlords robots in a friendly light. Mr. Chips, I'm looking at you.
