I think it will be smart pants. We can call them smarty pants.
I for one welcome our new hybridized mammoth overlords!
Come on, you know you wanted to post this first.
Florida's a good spot for them. There are no mountains for them to crash in to. Nice flat spaces to make very long runways. In fact, there might be a runway of unusual size that the government isn't using very much that they can use. Also, a handy supply of alligators to turn into a reptilian zombie worker army.
Concord Naval Weapons Station used to have a very large rail network, including in the nuke weapons area. The BNSF and Union Pacific both have main lines that go past the base. A group ran a steam locomotive excursion on the line that went by the base. We stopped there to take photos and unloaded several hundred people. A few minutes later trucks loaded with Marines armed with M-16s were there asking us what we were doing there.
Actually, freight trains are pretty unpredictable. Even Amtrak train move pretty unpredictably. I've seen some Amtrak trains that were more than 12 hours behind schedule.
AFAIK, the cell phone companies put the equipment in the BART tunnels and also paid BART for the privilege.
BART tickets are also time limited. If you enter a station fare gate you have 3 hours to exit. If you do not exit the system in that time the fare gate will not open and will give a "see station agent" message. You then have to go the station agent and explain what you've been doing inside for so long.
Why would you not shoot the knife out of his hand?? Of course, in real life that doesn't work because the target is moving erratically and you can't aim that well. That's why you aim for the center of mass.
Sprint does not "own" Nascar. They pay Nascar big bucks to sponsor one of the Nascar race series, however.

Luxury! In my day we could only dream of graphing calculators. We had to make do with 8 digit, 4 function calculators. Only the rich, hoity toity kids had a square root button. Don't even get me started about what we had to do for transcendental functions!
