Frenetic Friday


Once again we delve into the unique, the strange, the Frenetic Friday.

Yes we are starting out with two Robotic Over Lords articles tonight.

One is from a few weeks ago:

Does the thought of warm silicone raise your temperature? How about the hum of microprocessors and servos? If this floats your boat and you live in Houston then welcome to the robot brothel!

Yes an entrepreneur from Toronto Canada, who set up a similar brothel where you can rent a sexbot for an hour at a time with a private room doing whatever perverse desire you want. And then return the sexbot for a good cleaning. Wants to do the same thing in Houston. This of course has caused a bit of a row from the more conservative groups but sexbot aren’t considered illegal as technically the sexbot is classified as a “sex toy”. {Source}

Next we travel to distant China where a special recruitment is going on.

The Beijing Institute of Technology (BIT) group of teenagers included 27 boys and four girls chosen to train as the world’s youngest AI weapons scientists, according to the BIT website.

Those selected for the “experimental program for intelligent weapons systems” were all under the age of 18 and carefully chosen from a list of 5,000 candidates, the BIT website said.

One BIT professor who was involved in the screening process told the South China Morning Post that candidates needed to be more than just a bright student.

“We are looking for other qualities such as creative thinking, willingness to fight, a persistence when facing challenges,” the BIT professor told the Post, preferring to remain anonymous. {Source}

And now for the weird.

What you are looking at is a pair of boots made to look like ‘human skin’ they cost $10,000 and made by a pair of designers called, and I am not kidding, Fecal Matter, give me a pair of Doc Martens any day. {Source}

Pro-life

And in a win for pro-life Alabama has approved an amendment that declares that an unborn baby has the “right to life”. {Source}

And now for something else.

It seems that besides gender, species, and race there is a new fluidity in the mix: age.

A Dutch, positivity trainer says that he wants to change his birthdate from March 11, 1949 to March 11, 1969. He says that if gender is fluid than age must be also. Because he doesn’t ‘feel’ 69 he ‘feels’ 49 an so he wants his age to be 49. As he points out at 49 he can get a new house, buy a new car, take up a new job. However, he is getting some push back from the judges who doesn’t see a legal precedent for changing one’s birthdate.

And last something brilliant from Lutheran Satire:
