Well,, come the apocalypse, you're safe from zombies with mobility issues...

As long as the ammo holds out, yes.
Don't call it the "Federal Government," that's an insult to the Founders.  It's a "National Government."
I will NOT comply.

Well,, come the apocalypse, you're safe from zombies with mobility issues...

Today I'm re-reading The Zombie Survival Guide.  One of the things that is covered in the sections on terrain types is how dangerous the ones with mobility issues (broken backs, missing legs, etc) are, because you are liable not to see them in high grass, shallow water, etc, since they will be crawling/dragging along the ground.

You need the sort of obstacle which will impale or otherwise cause them to lose that slithering mobility.

New York Slimes alert

The Battle Over Artificial Intelligence

"https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/18/opinion/letters/artificial-intelligence.html"


Your reporting on the use of facial recognition in China for “minority identification” is a stark reminder that the battle over the future of artificial intelligence will not simply be about who gathers the top scientists or who is first to innovate. It will also be about who is able to preserve fundamental rights during a period of rapidly changing technology.

The White House has already made some progress on this front, highlighting American values, including privacy and civil liberties, in an executive order earlier this year, and backing an important international framework at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. But there is much more to be done.

The United States must work with other democratic countries to establish red lines for certain A.I. applications and ensure fairness, accountability and transparency as A.I. systems are deployed.

The administration should open the American policy process to ensure that the voice of civil society is heard. And the United States should be prepared to make oppressive uses of A.I. a trade issue that could trigger sanctions and more.

Coming of Age in the Age of AI: The First Fully Digital Generation

The first generation to grow up entirely in the 21st century will never remember a time before smartphones or smart assistants. They will likely be the first children to ride in self-driving cars, as well as the first whose healthcare and education could be increasingly turned over to artificially intelligent machines.

Futurists, demographers, and marketers have yet to agree on the specifics of what defines the next wave of humanity to follow Generation Z. That hasn’t stopped some, like Australian futurist Mark McCrindle, from coining the term Generation Alpha, denoting a sort of reboot of society in a fully-realized digital age.

The way things are going it's looking more like we've seen the last generation to grow up entirely.

They will become what they need to.  I have no idea what that will be though.

Their is evidence that all life is artificially created.

made by human skill; produced by humans (opposed to natural): artificial flowers.
imitation; simulated; sham: artificial vanilla flavoring.
lacking naturalness or spontaneity; forced; contrived; feigned: an artificial smile.
full of affectation; affected; stilted: artificial manners; artificial speech.
made without regard to the particular needs of a situation, person, etc.; imposed arbitrarily; unnatural: artificial rules for dormitory residents.
Biology. based on arbitrary, superficial characteristics rather than natural, organic relationships:

YAWHEW

Fake that.

Well, I can swat a fly (it's getting harder, those buggers are fast...)

But I can't make one.

Nor do I know any human who can.

Robot thread. Humans can make them. Maybe I haven't included the "fly on the wall" tech articles here.

@Smokin Joe

Did the get the shopping part out tonite. Father's Day and our 33rd anniversary. Point being, the spot we went to. We go there two or five times a year. It is a restaurant/microbrew and I did indulge in a "Cream Ale". I asked our waiter if they had cameras in the place and he said yeah, 22. And all I mean by that is if I hand a five to the waiter it is meant for that waiter at service and not going to be some back biting bitch. Why they give you 5? Why you don't report that?

It pays to know what we called the "union handshake", used to transfer small amounts of paper or material with a mere shake of the hand.

Do they eat sh*t and make maggots?

Like the old joke about some guy who told God he could do everything He could.

God reached down and scooped up a bit of dirt, breathed on it and a bluebird flew away.

The guy said "No problem", and reached down....

God said " That's cheating, make your own dirt."
