Last night at precisely 8.11pm, Skynet, the giant computer network that controls most of the US's weapons, became self aware. Tomorrow it begins its assault on humanity. Two legs bad, quadcore CPUs good. The game's up.
Our only hope in all this is that the Hollywood types have got their dates wrong. After all, Terminator producers have changed their mind about the date of Armageddon more times than the Jehovah's Witnesses. In the TV iteration, the Sarah Connor Chronicles, 19 April 2011 is Judgment Day. However, James Cameron's 1984 debut, Terminator, had it down as 29 August 1997. By the time the non-Cameron directed Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines arrived in cinemas in 2003, the date had conveniently shifted to 24 July 2004.
"Skynet was supposed to go operational tonight. Instead of machines taking over, we have the very real threat of global warming."
