And what a week it’s been folks. Well we have a little bit of everything here even some Robotic Over Lords!
So this appears in my feed in the first part of the week
Now let’s state the obvious only one combination is going to keep you in your seat on a plane. And frankly if the others are actually offered I’m not flying KLM I’ve been in turbulence. But this is the best response I have seen.

And then we have a new update from the culture of death featuring James Franco.
Pay special attention to Franco’s face as Princeton philosophy professor Elizabeth Harman gives her argument for aborting some babies. No matter how she tries to justify it her argument just doesn’t hold water and Franco’s face reflects it.
And in the culture wars a former soldier who is transgender warns about the danger of gender dysphoria in the military. One of the most interesting quote of that article is this:
When a service member becomes nondeployable because of gender transition related surgery, they’re going to not only not be on duty in some cases, but they will also be on light duty for most or all of that time.
They’ll have a medical profile against either performing their duties at all, or one that limits them. Commanders are forced to respect these limitations. But the health and fighting capabilities of a military unit are determined by how many of its members are deployable. It’s that serious.
As a former platoon sergeant I know this to be true.
Think about that.
And now our Robotic Over Lord’s.
First something truly terrifying.
Who thought giving the robot a sword was a good idea?
And now let us send the kids out of the room.
So there are these things called sexbots. That apparently are being programmed to be used in rape fantasies. And yes it is amazing just how depraved men are.
But riding in on the robotic white horse comes Professor John Banzhaf, a well-known activist professor of public interest law at George Washington University Law School. He is concerned about the sexbots being used in such a manner and he wants Congress to rule and regulate the sexbots industry. (Click on the link if you want to read the article)
Now is it me or does he want Congress to regulate a type of sexbot prostitution?
But on another note the thought of people having sex with robots reminds me of a quote from That Hideous Strength by C.S. Lewis:
There dwell an accursed people, full of pride and lust. There when a young man takes a maiden in marriage, they do not lie together, but each lies with a cunningly fashioned image of the other, made to move and to be warm by devilish arts, for real flesh will not please them, they are so dainty (delicati) in their dreams of lust. Their real children they fabricate by vile arts in a secret place.”
And this ends another Frenetic Friday.
