Avatar 6:15pm northguineahills:

I don't know how Aaron types so fast w/o actually typing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:15pm (Murakami Whywolf))):

Mammoths! …and then engineer minmoths, toy-sized ones.
Avatar 6:17pm geezerette:

I heard or read that Taibbi had a family "emergency".
Meanwhile, www.washingtonpost.com... Not actually funny.

The KEYSTONE pipeline...important to mention
  6:21pm Aaron in Minneapolis:

I type either with my thumb or index finger
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:22pm Ken From Hyde Park:

President Dimwit today reversed the ban on lion and elephant trophies, accelerating their demise.

I'm very talented
  6:23pm Aaron in Minneapolis:

And modest

gnarly spy satellite? big ass nuke firing armageddon machine?
  6:25pm Keith from Oregon:

"Zuma" is an album by Neil Young!
Avatar 6:26pm geezerette:

Ken, it's all tragic. It's no longer possible to over react.
Feels like everyone needs to find a way to put the climate at the top of every nation's agenda. I'll shut up now.
Avatar 6:28pm northguineahills:

aahh, now i get it, Aaron, nice humble brag (and nice name, it's my given name)

Keith got here before me about Neil!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:29pm dale:

i found a cheese stick in the plastic package in my truck like 6 months after i must have lost it. i had to know, so i opened it and it just tasted like a better expensive stinky cheese.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:31pm dale:

robot repairman?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm melinda:

Hi Jim and people
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:35pm melinda:

Human interaction industry= more business for cuddlists.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm chris:

Yoshimi!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm dale:

robots will be able to improvise and read your perspiration and temperature fluctuations and know how to respond to you. it's all just learned knowledge.
Avatar 6:36pm northguineahills:

Like how Zapp Branigan defeated the killbots?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm dale:

when you're attracted to leila anything is possible.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm (((Murakami Whywolf):

{Tiki torch}-carrying humans chanting 'Robots! Will not! Replace us!'.

The advance in the Jeopardy®-winning A.I. was getting it to understand questions posed in colloquial English.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Toss jellyfish up in the air to defeat the drones.
  6:39pm nickrhombi:

we gotta do something about the drones, man...
  6:40pm nickrhombi:

get them alligator and ginsang fellers to blast them out of the sky.. id watch that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm (Murakami Whywolf))):

You can jam the drones' G.P.S.s; some could still use inertial navigation, but I don't know how well they do that, generally.
Avatar 6:40pm glenn:

i'm not worried. robots will never be able to do on site finish carpentry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm dale:

if i OWNED the robot who did my job and i still got paid i would be cool with that.
  6:41pm nickrhombi:

im thinking energy pulses... magnets or something... or those laser pointers... ok. thats all i got.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42pm dale:

especially if there was fringe benefits (winky winky) in owning that robot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm melinda:

I used to worry about the potential for drones spying on me through my windows, then I actually heard one when my neighbors were playing around with one and it was way too loud and annoying to be a spying device. But the technology will probably get better for stealth operations.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm (((Murakami Whywolf):

I look forward to robots doing the jobs that stultify and unbiggen the minds of the humans who do them now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:45pm chris:

i bet they have plenty of discount clothing and housewares on planet ross
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:45pm dale:

the time i had to hang into my septic tank to screw on a solids filter - a robot could do that and i'd be cool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm dale:

listener david could be the topic of a science show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm (Murakami Whywolf))):

We couldn't get to Proxima Centaurus in less than thousands of years; better to put the effort and resources into building habitats away from sucky gravity wells.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm Ken From Hyde Park:

A robot football league might be cool. In the RFL, there would be no national anthem or CTE issues.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm dale:

we would just need to find a worm hole to get there
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The FDA approved pills that report back and confirm that the user has ingested the pill. Well, either the user or his/her dog did.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:51pm melinda:

e-commerce is definitely a threat. I work in a space that used to be a bookstore.
  6:56pm Station Mgr Ken:

Hi Jim- Joe is stuck underground so you may need to start Hearty White. Call me if needed (on my phone so no avatar)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:58pm dale:

drone cleaners.
drone oil change.
drone wiper blade change.
  6:58pm Station Mgr Ken:

Check your email Jim
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:59pm (((Murakami Whywolf):

How much satisfaction can get get from a job you know a robot could do as well or better, or really doesn't need to get done at all? I've sometimes got as much satisfaction from work as from just staying at home and doing ad lib, but rarely.

Try to remember back to before you had to wake-up to an alarm most days;wasn't it much better?
