Total Drek

Or, the thoughts of several frustrated intellectuals on Sociology, Gaming, Science, Politics, Science Fiction, Religion, and whatever the hell else strikes their fancy. There is absolutely no reason why you should read this blog. None. Seriously. Go hit your back button. It's up in the upper left-hand corner of your browser... it says "Back." Don't say we didn't warn you.

Best. Press. Release. Ever.

I would like to stress that I am not making the following up. Seriously. It's a real press release:

POMPANO BEACH, Fla.– In response to rumors circulating the internet on sites such as FoxNews.com, FastCompany.com and CNET News about a “flesh eating” robot project, Cyclone Power Technologies Inc. (Pink Sheets:CYPW) and Robotic Technology Inc. (RTI) would like to set the record straight: This robot is strictly vegetarian.

...

“We completely understand the public’s concern about futuristic robots feeding on the human population, but that is not our mission,” stated Harry Schoell, Cyclone’s CEO. “We are focused on demonstrating that our engines can create usable, green power from plentiful, renewable plant matter. The commercial applications alone for this earth-friendly energy solution are enormous.” [emphasis original]


So, just to sum up, it isn't their mission to create "...futuristic robots feeding on the human population,". So that would make it, what, a bonus objective or something?

Seriously, no need to worry, but I never thought that I would ever be in a position to see a press release dealing seriously with the idea of man-eating robots. We live in a charmed time, indeed.

Heh. Expect more of this type of thing, in greater frequency, in the future.
