9. The Marines

are funding its development. I doubt they have a pet in mind, but I did feel sorry for it when it rolled down the hill.

17. I know. I want to shoot that thing with a rocket, and I KNOW it's supposed to be on my side...

When Skynet goes live (and then goes apeshit) the "geniuses" who designed it will, I SWEAR, sit in front of Congress and have the gall to say " No one could have predicted this outcome."

Really? REALLY, motherfucker? NO ONE? Have you, or have you NOT seen the film Terminator? Because from up here, it seems like Mr. Cameron called this one 'bout 30 years ago.
Just saying.

6. I have this strange need to see someone lasso it, tie to a pole and see if it can get free

.. or if it endlessly walks in a circle until it is tied up and has no where to go

Is that bad?

11. well in moves at a run with a two beat gait. It def. reminds

me of a horse, just not a walking horse. I photograph moving horses for a living and this made me wish I was there to pull out the camera and grab a few shots.

Awesome! More devices designed to kill us, or make killing us easier.
