In the spirit of yesterday’s post I have decided to publish something here every day until at least the end of the month, and hopefully by then it will be habit. However I know damn well I’m not going to have something intelligent, entertaining, useful, or interesting to say every day. As an example I can’t really think of anything to blog about today. So in an effort to make this whole “publish a blog every damn day” thing easier, I figure I’ll do what a lot of popular blogs do, which is institute scheduled features that don’t require a whole hell of a lot of creativity, intelligence, or work. Instead I’m gonna let the rest of the internet do that for me. Hence, a linkfest!
Now that’s funny!
The Pentagon may soon be unleashing a 21st-century version of locusts on its adversaries after officials on Monday said it had successfully tested a swarm of 103 micro-drones.
The important step in the development of new autonomous weapon systems was made possible by improvements in artificial intelligence, holding open the possibility that groups of small robots could act together under human direction.
Military strategists have high hopes for such drone swarms that would be cheap to produce and able to overwhelm opponents’ defenses with their great numbers.
Though to be fair, unless they can form shapes like bees in an old bugs bunny cartoon I’m wont be that impressed.
Can you tell the difference?
And finally, via breitbart.com as proof that 2016 didn’t kill all of the best celebrities we have Jackie Mason tearing Tweety Bird a new asshole. The guy is older than Methuselah but hes still funnier than most comedians one fifth his age.
