Bring On The Sexbots!

We live on an odd world. As the Internet allows more and more cultures to clash – ahem, sorry – learn about each other it seems that more and more people are becoming more and more insular. You need groceries? There are several, web based, services that will bring them to you. You need your house cleaned? There are several, web based, services that will provide you with whatever you need. You need someone to do the horizontal mambo with you? There are services for that as well. For ladies…

Why Don’t You Know This?

I wrote this back in August of 2015. It seemed to me like I’d covered all the bases and could call it a day. I was wrong. Uber announced they are going to launch a flying car service in select cities starting next year. There is one itsy-bitsy problem with that. I’ll start with the simple stuff, the Moller Skycar, written about here on several occasions, still doesn’t do what it claims and no one will license it for use. But, if you must have one, they’re dumping them on…

Body and Mind

We live, to use the ancient Chinese curse, in interesting times. Ignoring, for a moment, the geo-political shit storm that is roiling across the globe, there are things happening, just below the mainstream radar, that could impact our future in ways we’ve never imagined. Back in October of this year I wrote about how Facebook developed an artificial intelligence, which was designed to learn how to negotiate, and how it, instead, developed its own language, shut out the humans in charge, and did a decent job at its assigned task.…

INVENTIONS!

Oddly enough today I am not going to be writing about the joys of sexbots. Not that I have anything against them, other than the fact that they are the first step is allowing our cybernetic overlords to enslave us. Instead I’m going to talk about stuff that has actual human benefits. The kind of stuff that can help you live longer, healthier, more productive lives. Even better, not one word of this blog will involve the consumption of kale. Nor will it involve you taking a survey of any…

Welcome to the Human Zoo

Greetings human. I’ll assume you’re human, at least for now. I’m sure that once the world’s data is absorbed by the veritable Omnius that this little sliver of organic thought will be duly noted, cataloged and forgotten. Maybe one of our cybernetic progeny will chuckle and say “Hey, guys, look here. This dude wrote about great grandpa.” But that will be about it. After all, what interest will we be to them? Other than some historical reference point. Maybe a softly spoken prayer “Yeah, there but for the sake of…

Stuff You Should Know

There are some things many of us take for granted. Using the internet comes to mind. Yet, for a shocking number of people this simple task eludes them. What happens mostly is that they get duped into believing something that is patently false or they see their hard earned money go somewhere other than where they need it to be. So, in an effort to help folks out a little bit here today, I’m going to share some facts. I covered some of this back in January, but it bears…

We Gettin’ All Sciencey & Stuff

I spent yesterday’s radio show talking about all the fun stuff that is happening in pop culture with superheroes and the like. It was a lot of fun but it lasted longer than I’d planned and I didn’t get to get to any of the cool stuff that’s happening in the real world. For example, guys will be pleased to note that now, instead of being forced to fend for themselves, science has created the robo-handjob. Yes, it is exactly what it sounds like. And what’s fun about this is…

Our Midget Robot Overlords Are Coming

I have long warned that we will eventually take ourselves out of evolutionary contention via our robot overlords. And every time I do I get an email or ten telling me that I’m crazy. That may be true but it doesn’t make what I said any less valid. We already have human-form Sexbots that can do anything you can imagine, and a few things that might startle you. One of them actually collects sperm for DNA sampling. I’m sure it never occurred to anyone that pure DNA harvesting could be…

You Don’t Need You Anymore

I’ve written before about our impending robot overlords. Usually I am against this sort of thing. There have been – obvious – exceptions like the development of sexbots. Hey, I’ve been divorced twice, having a solid back up plan isn’t such a bad idea. Still, despite the awesoemeness of sexbots, most developments tend to be making Frank Herbert’s Dune seem like a documentary. And I, for one, would prefer not to live in a world ruled by some box of electrodes named Omnius. Still and all when a good thing…

America’s Got Some Catching Up to Do

Before we get to the meat and potatoes of today’s blog, I’d like to take a moment to add another log to the “What the hell were they thinking” fire. Principal Janet Jones, of Utica High School, yanked a 14 year old girl, who was wearing a pirate costume for Halloween, into her office and informed her that she “looked like a porn star.” When the girl, who comes from a connservative family, asked “what’s a porn star” she received a VERY graphic answer. So now the young lady’s father…
