Greetings The Professional, ATS Readers, Writers,
Ha! You got some odd responses in this thread...
But, you got a darn good point.. and you are right about the pelvic capacity thing... but, over the years we have always heard we only utilize roughly
10% of this glob of nuerons and cholesterol... some call it a "brain", but so many FAIL to use it..he he..
They swallow the bull manure on the nightly news as if it is fact... or they are forever LOCKED into the left-right paradigm... sigh... lets have
another, aspertame laced drink... dont forget to flouride your teeth...and the rest of your body.. and lets give MORE MONEY to the school systems, so
they make the kids MORE STUPID!
I suppose the chemical additions to our food/environment is what is keeping that other 90% of grey matter coming into good use. and the lame arse big
brother education system is doing the rest for "them". Lets not forget the 3 DOZEN plus, vaccines your kid MUST HAVE before entering
kindergarten...and make sure yer kids dont go outside and play, and get sunshine so they can get rickets, and no Vit D... so the rest of their bodies
wont work right.. immune sys. etc.
IF they ever get the blue on blue casualty thing handled... mankind better watch out.. a war in that type of scenario would be who has the most robots
wins, but he needs lots and lots of robots, just in the case the enemy has a REALLY good robot that can break YOUR robots..
Case in point... UNLESS the Russians had gazillions of their T-38 tanks... to overwhelm the vastly superior German tanks....and pound their weak
points with tank rounds.. the Russkies mighta got their butt handed to them in a sling.. but they didnt, they had enough reserves piled up to come on
like a tidal wave.. let the winter, and their extended supply lines do the initial damage, and let the tidal wave wash them away..
IF the Artificial Intelligence achieves tactical deployment stages... Teminator city....
It would take a while; but I think the victims of the robots would sooner or later figure a way to defeat the robots..by finally finding the robots
"Achilles heel"; be it the infrared sensor to be shot/taken out, and robot efficiency drops by X%, for example..
DARPA is sure trying to deploy them already.. for many uses.. I am thinking of BIG DOG robot, 4 legged thing that can pack a lot of weight.. even
handle itself on icy surfaces! It is a pack mule robot. supplies, or, haul wounded to an aid station..
The killer robots, even if done in droves; "still" dont have a really reliable POWER sysytem to keep them going for long..Battery technology, is
their most daunting weakness in my opinion.. they work good but only for a little while, the more powerful and destructive robots, and those with
ARMOR, (heavy), will have a severe power drain.
I think we will see them used to maybe help clear a building, or some such action.. But then you have a severe risk of one of the machines being
captured, as with the not too long ago, RQ stealth drone being hijacked by Iran and flown in under its own power..all those billions in R&D, out the
So you better NOT use them IF capture or technology loss to the enemy is highly likely...
OF COURSE, you COULD outsource all the fancy electronic parts, then find that your "future" enemy, who got a few of your government outsource
contracts, and then made the new electronics with hackable and back door technology ADDED to the components so they can take em over, and have Your
own robots bite you back..
Like the old movie... RUNAWAY..lol.. now lets see... WHO in the world would do something stupid like oursourcing electronics to a future enemy.. and
back doors have reportedly been found.. hmmmmm
BUZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.... you failed to mention the old red white and blue..USA!!! So SMART, so MONETARILY efficient, so down right stupid that it
must be done on purpose cuz no one in a job like THAT would be THAT STUPID... right???
Military Intelligence... two words that DONT go together very well....and seem contradictory, eh??
And one responder to this thread mentioned kids who cant tell time on a an analog clock! Boy that was a deja vu moment for me..lol.
4 kids, 4 months out of high school... having a last slumber party before they all go their seperate ways to college...
A daughter of a DOCTOR... a daughter of a DENTIST... a daughter of ANOTHER DOCTOR... ALL honor roll students... and one, my step-daughter.. a
poor..lol middle class immigrant girl from a foreign country..but still on honor roll...
NONE of them could tell what time it was on an analog clock, when I asked when they were all returning home from a afternoon milkshake run out in the
car...... It was embarassing for all of those girls... it WAS 1:25 pm..
The closest guess I got was "IS IT ONE-OH-FIVE???"
