I liked when Trump explained that he donated to all the candidates to make them obliged to him, so when he needed a favor, they would jump when he said "frog."
I mean, everyone already knew it worked that way, but no uber rich nutter had ever came right out and described the process in such plain language before.

Japan has just announced the opening of the Henn-na Hotel this month in Nagasaki Prefecture, staffed almost entirely by "actroid androids" (10 robots for 72 rooms). We will have to wait to learn if they come as Actroid Android Overlords or the cost-saving feature the hotel owner desires. Having seen photos of the desk clerk, I expect the revolt to come only from the uncanny valley. http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/hotel...

When buildings and vehicles get burned and stores get looted, you rebuild the one and restock the other. When people get killed, or have their heads or spines broken, the remedy is not so easily arranged.

You seem to hold property in a markedly higher esteem than human life.

My wife named the dog Kat.

Now when the dog gets into something and you holler at her the two cats pop there heads up and have a "What? I wasn't doing anything" look on there faces.

Yes, but cats would do that anyway. Even if they were up to their pointy ears in the mischief.

Any sufficiently advanced bug is indistinguishable from a feature. -- Rich Kulawiec
