Rule 34.
Were beyond Rule 34 here.
How far beyond?
  • Rule 35: If there is no porn of it, porn will be made of it.
  • Rule 36: No matter what it is, it is somebody's fetish.
Or did we go all the way to 37?
  • Rule 37: No matter how fucked up it is, there is always worse than what you just saw.
Just remember though
  • Rule 38. No real limits of any kind apply here — not even the sky.

Son just showed me this on you tube



I immediately thought to myself just how useful Malloy would find this. It could carry his groceries , bug out bag. I dunno might even be capable of loading his guns. All with the same happy smile :awesome: ̶i̶t̶ ̶w̶o̶u̶l̶d̶ ̶h̶a̶v̶e̶ ̶a̶s̶ ̶i̶t̶ ̶d̶i̶s̶m̶e̶m̶b̶e̶r̶s̶ ̶y̶o̶u̶ :shock:

Tiny bioengineered robots.
From frog cells. Because Jurassic Park taught us that genetic engineering and frogs always works out fine.

Who'd've thought the zombie apocalypse would be accompanied by more "ribbit, ribbit" than "brrraaaaiiinnnnssss"?

Now they're replacing the burger flippers.

I wanted to work in a coffee shop when I "retired." I'm now thinking that may no longer be an option in another 2 decades.

A machine cannot replicate what a human can do in a true coffee shop with real hand crafted drinks. But a machine can totally pull a lever and keep a bean hopper (or espresso pucks) topped off. So it depends on what kind of coffee shop you are aiming for in your retirement. If you aim high, I bet you can achieve that dream.

It won't be long now before in addition to the usual drug tests Olympic athletes will have to submit to "humanity" testing.

When they decided to allow Oscar Pistorius in the Olympics, I opined at the time that we may be on the cusp of needing at least 3 sets of Olympics:

Special Olympics, for physically/mentally impaired
Olympics, for unmodified humans
Olympics+, for modified humans

And, now, maybe Robot Olympics to allow companies/universities/countries to compete with fully-synthetic Olympians. Each robot would be all-or-nothing (no hyperspecialized gymnastics bots or whatever), but have humanoid and unrestricted categories.
