Two Links Related Only In That They Are Creepy

I always saw Marcus Gilmore in the boys' room in middle school, and almost never anywhere else. He was always dreamily gazing out the bathroom window, one foot resting on a pipe as he allowed the breeze to gently ruffle his mullet. We might have had gym class together, but barely knew one another. Sometimes I wonder what he got up to since high school.

I found out, and it wasn't through Classmates.com, either.

Terminators are real, real cool in the movies. In real life, maybe not.

until robots can make decisions like humans, you won't be able to reproduce what a soldier does by a robot. Killing is only the easist part of the job these days. There is much science to being a professional soldier but there is even more art

Have tea with the local shura and getting their support for local reconstruction projects and coordinating for NGOs to augment using local ANA security...and showing just enough force to keep the local Taliban heads down? No robot can do what my soldiers can do. I guarantee it. It's a nice fantasy, but AI doesn't exist yet and can not replace human judgement.
