Law & Order: K9 Crimes Unit

The crime:  Lunchtime Attack


The suspect: Toby Kins


Mr. Toby Kins was the only occupant in the vehicle immediately before and after the attack.  Saliva samples on the blue cooler bag, the sandwich container, and the upholstery of the vehicle were genetically matched to Mr. Kins.  As the defendant was unwilling to take a plea and completely unrepentant of his actions, Mr. Toby Kins was remanded to HiltonHouse Private Facility for a term no shorter than that of his natural life.

Today’s decisions -- tomorrow’s results.

"It is often said that in a Democracy, people get the government they deserve.

On a large scale, this related thought is also true: On our planet, the people get the results they create!"

Public speaking

reader-in-chiefSo, what's the deal with Pres. Obama only speaking in public using the aid of a teleprompter?  The pundits always made fun of Pres. Bush's speaking style, at least he had the cajones to speak extemporaneously.

Does nobody read sci fi for crying out loud?

If you've read very much sci fi at all, you will have come across many references of Mankind's technology becoming his downfall.

A common theme is that the cybernetic system becomes self-aware, then starts making its own decisions.  From there, humans tend to start getting their butts kicked.

Rushlight/terminatorarnie.jpgIsaac Asimov's
Three Laws of Robotics were written to prevent harm coming to people, and in this fictional universe the robots never became self-aware. However, witness Cyberdyne systems from the Terminator movies. In less than a month of coming online,  Cyberdyne's Skynet system decided to disregard its human masters and started running  amuck.  Then, of course, there are the Borg of Star Trek: The Next Generation fame.  The Replicators from the Stargate SG1 series are on a similar mission of mayhem.

I bring all this up because of some news stories (
1, 2) of a new cybot system Rushlight/borg.jpgcalled Ubiquitous Network Transient Autonomous Mission Entities, or UNTAME.  The UNTAME system was created to protect U.S. government computer systems.  The team leader of this project himself likes to compare the system to the Borg. 


As an avid reader and watcher of all things sci fi, the hairs on my neck literally stood up when I read about UNTAME.

God save us from ourselves.
