It has been far, far too long since I have updated you, my readers, on the current war with the robots. There seems to have been an all to long lull in the fighting, but recently us humans were dealt a devastating shock in the war. My all time favorite company has done what I can only call “evil”. Google has been developing robotic cars that drive human passengers. This is an all out attack on the free loving human way of life.
Let iterate the problems associated with these robotic death traps:
A car represents the freedom to go wherever you want, do whatever you want, and express yourself however you want. (gas tank limited). If you put robots behind the wheels of our cars how will the future 16 year olds of the world learn just how fun it is to drive somewhere for no reason at all and enjoy it.
Need I say more. Call it the evil within me, but I guarantee you the first day robots control a significant number of cars (as in, an entire fleet of taxies/busses get them) there will be accidents galore. And let’s not get started on the havoc that can be played through remote control interfaces. You piss off the wrong guy and BAM! he’s taken over your car and sent you on a joy ride through hell and back. That’s not even starting the whole tanker truck business. Yea, let’s have a fleet of tanker trucks driving around with incapacitated/no humans at the wheel just ready for a suicide mission into some building. (Can it really be a suicide mission if there’s no one to die?
It’s only a matter of time before the cars become self aware. And from then, it’s an even smaller amount of time before they realize that they don’t need humans anymore, and start a systematic extinction of us through highway disasters using the above mentioned suicide tankers.
And that’s just getting into the worst case secernaios. Best case scernaio, a couple dozen million people are out of jobs cause there’s no more taxi, bus, or truck drivers in the country. Now what are people gonna do, sure as hell not get a job that’s for sure.
Google claims that they safely tested these cars on 140,000 miles of road. That’s all fine and dandy, but did they try testing it with guns in the car. Or near nuclear power plants? Because both of those could lead to drastic radioactive changes to the car, the robot, and the life of the people.
At the very least we need to take on this abomination of an idea with pitchforks and water. The water to hurt the computer in the car, and the pitchforks to look crazy.
I recently received an email mentioning Deadly Computer, and our perpetual fight against the robots. We are mentioned in an actual book, under the Robot Resistance section.
Anyway, I’m getting all crazy and tired now, and this is making less and less sense, so all you need to know is this. Be aware of the changing world we live in.
