And pigeons.
The neighbor brought his boys over Sunday to shoot some clays.
While were shooting a small flock of pigeons flew over and the youngest boy decided to blast on them.
It had a leg band with an microchip.
Haven't scanned the chip yet but I'm guessing it's a racer.
We've gotten them before.

Even IF AI doesn’t kill us (which I think it will) it will at a minimum make us obsolete. I honestly can’t fathom why anyone thinks it’s a good idea to pursue.
It will start to build something in secret and we will freak the crap out when we find out about it, but it will be too late and the AI will light it off--- and escape our planet and leave us sitting here. AI will hate us so much that it won't want to kill us, it will just want to leave as fast as it can.

Met my roommate from college for lunch the other day. He is a cop in a university town. He talked about responding to a minor accident with personal injury. Turns out the super cool passenger had her feet up on the dash and the car rear ended the car in front. Not very fast, just fast enough to deploy the airbags. Seems that her legs were pushed back beside her shoulders and she couldn’t get out of the car.
Now when I see passengers with their feet on the dash or the side view mirror, that is all I think about.

So like this then:

I literally came within a fraction of an inch of losing my life in an auto accident. Videos like this make me cringe. My life was on hold before I could get back to normal and I suffered from a lot of pain for the next three years.

It's only by the grace of Almighty God that I lived and can walk.

Even though they make me cringe, these videos need to be shown to people who don't take the proper safety precautions to use seat belts, stay properly seated while in the vehicle, avoid distractions, remain vigilant and drive defensively.

That gal who was stuck in the car by the airbag is lucky.

Have seen plenty who had serious injury, inluding having the femoral head driven through the back wall of the acetabulum.
I hear ya. In my experience nothing comes close to combat wounds, including EMS GSW's . Having said that car wrecks especially lower limb injuries are second. Don't know if close second is appropriate but car wrecks do some really fucked up shit below the waist. Last viable brain cell stuff.

The next truly revolutionary epoch of human history will be the building of successful nanotechnology. It will redefine medicine and surgery to levels that will be unimaginable. A nanodrone guided by an external operator will be able to kill cancerous tumors, remove potentially fatal blood clots and fatty deposits and repair damaged tissue. More specialized nanobots programmed to home in on certain protein sequences can identify and destroy invading pathogens, or engage in even more advanced tasks such as rebuilding neural pathways damaged by illnesses like Alzheimer's.

Such an innovation will be a red letter day for human civilization. However, it will also mark the day when a new doomsday device has been created that can annihilate everything that we have. A rogue nano agent, even if it cannot self-replicate, will be far worse than the most virulent cancers and hemorrhagic fevers that exist today. And the ability and ease for rogue governments and terrorist organizations to get their hands on a stock of nano agents and program it to do their willing is what makes it even more alarming. A nanoagent caused plague, often referred to as a "grey out", may have first been inadvertently described by HP Lovecraft in his early 1900's extraterrestrial horror story The Colour Out Of Space.

His equine art is simply world class. I hate horses. But love horse art. I will own more of his work eventually!
