Given the complexity of the brain, I think that they inevitably will run into significant stumbling blocks. Every new technology has had growing pains that had to be overcome. Hopefully, these growing pains won't be a PR disaster like the Hindenburg that kills the technology.

Obama murdered Antonin Scalia as human sacrifice to pagan fascism.

Lovely. American crazy is it's own special brand of crazy.

This did not surprise me one bit when I heard it. Sadly, I was also not surprised about the lawyer who wants to allow Scalia to vote from the grave.

You should check out the vlogs about the occult connections between David Bowie and Alan Rickman, and how Bowie's faked his death. Or the occult symbolism in Beyonce's Superbowl performances.

Actually... you probably shouldn't. I watched one once and now YouTube thinks I'm a big time aficionado of occult conspiracies and keeps throwing them into my suggested videos feed, and they're actually really repetitive and boring.

They know you're aware, now, and are trying to draw you out. I'm afraid you've put yourself at quite a risk. It's much safer to remain under cover in the herd of sheeple without coming to Their attention. You might be able to re-submerge, but it's probably better to plan on running while you still can. Get as far off the grid as you can arrange -- unless you have contacts in the Resistance to help you hide, or have an "in" with one of Their factions to protect you from the rest.

Remove it from your history and they'll stop.

Must be lacking an important component for a train mecha.

Jerks stealing mundane items for laughs is ubiquitous here in the states. What's really weird is that the Japanese find it creepy.

That would make for a horrifying ad for that model of yacht. So well made it almost sails itself for years on end.
