Skynet's Judgment Day is here... April 19, 2011 8:11PM




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.


Game Over, Man!

Thought that some sci-fi fans would like a friendly reminder that Judgment Day has arrived!



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.


Not trying to clutter the forums... Thinking this is totally appropriate given the popularity of Terminator II.

You're joking, right?

Computers just do what they're told, doncha know? Garbage in, garbage out. Just because it can learn doesn't mean that the network is going to rise up and kill Americans. I'm sure there's some kind of prime directive that the system can only kill Iraqis, Afghanis, Libyans, North Koreans and illegal immigrants.

The more machines become aware, the more they will love us

What if it ever gets hacked, or virus implanted, or even a glitch for that matter....silly to put too much ability in a machine. Serious stuff shoud be a decision made by several individuals....that is a really risky idea, i hope they are not that stupid...

Shouldn't this be in the movies forum, or is this like the Arnold Schwarzenegger movie where everything in the movie screen is supposed to be real?

Nice!
good call posting this.

only thing that soils it is that, in the article, James Cameron goes on to tweet



"Skynet was supposed to go operational tonight. Instead of machines taking over, we have the very real threat of global warming."


-so poignant Jim.
