Thanks DARPA, every now and then I think that I might be able to go to sleep at night without dreaming about BigDog busting through the walls of my house and jumping on me until I am a fine enough paste to be its biofuel. Now I also get to enjoy the knowledge that whatever insane rounds it might be packing it no longer needs to aim at me, as the bullet itself will manage to find the target. I am assuming that it still needs to fire in the same general direction as me, but considering that it doesn’t have the disadvantage of not being a machine built for only killing me it probably already has that issue sorted.
Real talk time; do I need to stop worrying about the robot revolution and start worrying about a bullet revolt? If I go hunting am I going to have to worry if I insulted my ammunitions family before I attempt to slay Bambi’s mother? Maybe I have been thinking about this wrong the entire time, and the enemy I should have been worrying about isn’t the thing that is replacing man, but man making the weapons smart enough to kill without us. A bullet that can aim itself is just a step aware from firing, and that happens all the time, according to random police reports.
Most players on Xbox live know by now that sometimes the in game chat is… less than friendly. It usually doesn’t take long for the game chat to become filled with vile, foul-mouthed tirades that are both shocking and annoying. One gamer has decide to have fun and get some revenge- and was even nice enough to post a video of his triumph on YouTube.
MW3 gamer “Darkness056” records the ranting of a clearly enraged player, and in the following round, plays back a recording of the players own banter. Things get good when this crazed gamer begins to argue with the recording of his own voice without realizing it. Check out the video below for some great laughs, but be warned, the language is offensive and NSFW.
A satellite watching the Sun has recently picked up a rather large object that appears to have a tendril reaching into our Star’s center and extracting plasma. The first, and clearly natural, reaction of everyone on YouTube is that this is an UFO that is only doing a quick stop over before probably leaving the solar system forever—think the USS enterprise ignoring the undeveloped people to just grab some goods and go. Pretty much every scientist familiar with the Sun who has even looked at this for a moment has come to the same exact conclusion, that is a prominence and it is not only entirely not exciting it is kind of normal. Oddly the only real news that might come out of this is that it is the first time that anyone on YouTube has noticed one of these things.
My favorite thread of logic from all of this is that this is the birth of a new planet, because, you know, that is how they are made – randomly and pretty much in the blink of an eye while the government tries to cover them up. If we are making random suggestions why don’t we go all old school and suggest that this is from counter Earth and it is the weird bug creatures that rule over that planet like gods gathering energy to make sure that the people of their planet remain suppressed and depressed for the rest of forever/to fight their other worldly rivals of alien things (bonus points if you got the Gor reference).
