Reactionaries Never Change Anything

If they'd spotted this eventuality in 2002 like we did here on Vault-Co it is possible there would be a different outcome.

Raising the alarm now is like waiting until a home fire has burned down 3 of 4 stories before calling the fire department. It's too late to do any good.

Autonomous fighting machines are going to be a huge part of the third World War and there is nothing anyone can do to stop it. These talking heads are very slow to see natural implications of new technology. I wish Vault-Co 1.0 archive was still online so I could link to my very first article on the coming Terminators from 2002.

I honestly believe the elites intend to clean up the stragglers like me they don't get with nukes. They're planning on putting these into the post-apocalyptic environment and just waiting, figuring the last 2% will have to come out sooner or later. They're wrong. We will work on these critters from the safety of a vault if they are up there and sooner or later we will get around them or take them out of commission. They'll rust away and run down before we do. I know embedded devices well enough to have seen this coming and I know they fail sooner rather than later.

What worries me is the thought of a maintenance center and 3D-printing lathe for replacement parts which is also manned by robots using an atomic pile for energy. That's pretty scary right there. All they do is sit around all day figuring out how to get into that vault. With any luck they'll all be running on Windows CE. A single GPF on a divide-by-zero operation and the building goes up in flames.

Note to Self : Make sure new shelter entrance is situated at the "0,0" corner of a quadrant. If they try to plot it on a map the atomic pile melts down and turns the robo-maintenance center into a molten slag crater. They compiled it for release and forgot all the asserts vanished. Luckily for us our map server is running Mex Arcane's FAULT-OS and has built in checks for all common floating point exceptions. It takes an Australopithecine to think of these things. I'm getting tired I better go to sleep before I add any more stupid jokes to this post.

Evolutionary psychology? lol

I beat the crap out of quite a few bullies in my day. They seldom had two brain cells to rub together. This is what a real 'alpha male' primate will try to do, but the real 'alpha male' primate type is a dead end for evolutionary failures since neolithic levels of technology.

Archaic DNA admixture detected in Africans but not anywhere else.

cbenediccengi: Without reading that study I offer my theory. If bullies blood hormonal levels, endorphins etc. were measured in real time, they would show a spike when they engage in putting someone down.
