...They go around and kill themselves.

Elon Musk may've become the umpteenth high-profile hi-tech celebrity futurist who has cried doom and gloom about the potential threat from AIs taking over the world and eradicating humankind on a whim...

...But apparently we're still a long way from there, as shown by the fate of this poor little R2D2 who somehow decided he had had enough, and plunged himself to a swift electrocution death in a water fountain in DC the other day.

Caution, the footage can be disturbing for the more robo-love inclined... )

"If Earth is really turning to the East, shouldn't flying to the West be faster?" - A question I recently read around these Internets.

Reminds me of that Saudi cleric who said that if a plane stops in one place in the air, China would come on its own and there was no need to waste fuel for flights.

Tidal locking is a biach, yo. How the hell does that devilry work!?

So... if we are traveling in a train and I suddenly jump off my seat, would the person sitting in front of me crash into me, hmmm?

Modern teens are threatening the future of humankind with extinction, scientists and psychiatrists are warning, since the emergence of the new global mania, the so called fidget-spinners. The reason is that because they've occupied their hands with the little spinning gadgets, their sexual maturing is getting hindered.

A 97% decrease in masturbation rates is being observed among boys and girls 11-16 years of age, according to researchers. And it is the worthless spinning thingies that's the main culprit for that, because they are designed to soothe strained nerves. This, in a world where being a knot of nerves is the new norm, of course.

We are all doomed, you know )

But that reminds me of all those weird hand-shakes Trump has made with world leaders over the last few months.

Colorado: Hunter claims he was sexually assaulted by a sasquatch

Darrel Whitaker, from Glenwood Springs in Colorado, claims a sasquatch attacked him and attempted to rape him while he was walking in the woods.

When I regained consciousness, he had already torn my pants and was tearing through my underwear. I stabbed him in the shoulder with my hunting knife, and that made him run away.

Those damned horny Sasquatches and their damned huge hairy balls!

We have all heard of Kellyanne Conway's gaffe at *that meeting* in the Oval Office. It was condemned as a sign of disrespect for the presidential office, even a sign of white privilege in the face of so many respectable African American distinguished guests.

While we're still on the War on Reason topic...

Kyrie Irving believes the Earth is flat

"This is not even a conspiracy theory," Irving said during the podcast. "The Earth is flat. What I've been taught is that the earth is round. But if you really think about it from a landscape of the way we travel, the way we move and the fact that, can you really think of us rotating around the sun and all planets aligned, rotating in specific dates, being perpendicular with what's going on with these planets?"

"I just found that out," Irving said while laughing. "I think people should do their own research, man. Then hopefully they will either back my belief or they will throw it in the water."

Astonishing. And he spent at least an hour or two inside a Duke University lecture hall. Actually, grade school should have taken care of this. Maybe the problem is the flat world map on the wall, instead of a round globe spinning on the teacher's desk? Do teachers still keep a globe on the desk?

TRUMP TOWER, New York -- U.S. President *GASP* Donald Trump met yesterday with Ali Baba, an Arabian entrepreneur, who vowed to bring one million "e-commerce" jobs to America.

Mr Baba said he knew of a thieves' den that could be entered by simply uttering a "secret phrase" (if only he could remember it). Inside the den, Mr Baba said, there are tons of bags of gold coins that would cover the new jobs, with many bags left over for other national purposes, such as rebuilding the Navy while cutting business taxes in half. Oh, and that Wall of course.

Speaking from their own den, Democrats on Capitol Hill protested that federal job training would have to be set up first, along with a vast new entitlement program for anyone displaced by the changes.

Mr Trump has promised to implement the plan in the first 1001 nights of his Presidency.

The jobs proposal would have to go through the Senate Commerce Committee first of course, shown here authoring some "earmarks"...

Here's a special offer for y'all! A magic Make America Great Again hat.

So here's the hat. But be aware that it's made in China and is not original. But that doesn't matter, because once you put it on, you'll be a star on the street. People will turn around to look at you, and they'll be jealous.

Bonus stats:
+2 partisanship
+3 carnivorousy(sic?)
-2 veganism
-10 homeopathy
+10 bigotry
+9 desire to build walls
+9 desire that someone else pays for said walls
-10 intelligence

Extra bonus: +10% ability of building tall fences and walls with Chinese materials (as is the hat itself).

In order to activate the bonus stats and the extra bonus, you'd need to worship Mammon, and be a certified douchebag.

The Orange House. -- Prez Donald has elaborated on his plans to withdraw the sanctions against Russia in an extensive interview with Cosmonaut Pravda.

The new POTUS has confirmed his intention to remove the blockade on the money assets of Putin's pals that his predecessor, Teleprompter-Reader In Chief had imposed since Volodya decided to be a bad kid. However, The Donald has certain conditions for doing that.

"I once followed a link on Twitter that led me to an article in some reputed website, which told the truth about Russia's secret laser that they keep in space. Apparently, it is capable of destroying America and the Islamic State with a single blow. If the Russians give it to us, I will remove the sanctions, and the Russian oligarchs won't have to rely on agents like myself to do their Russian business unimpeded any more".

His other condition for unblocking Russian corporations from dealing with America is if Russia sends some Kozyrev mirrors, Muldashev alloplants and magnetic ointments that Trump could use to replace Obamacare with, once he has repealed it. The American people will be needing some big-ass medical miracle to heal themselves with, after all. Right?

Thus, there's probably less than 4-5 days until the point where America will finally be made great again, and as by extension the world will be brought to a unprecedented peak of its civilizational development.
