i'm reading about how to survive a robot uprising. i'm not gonna give away all the secrets, but i'll share a few...

  • choose a complex environment. waterfalls, street traffic, and places with lots of ambient noise confuse the robots.

  • lose your heat signature. smear yourself with mud and leaves and sit real still.

  • use uncommon words to suss out robots on the phone. robots do not know how pronounce supercalifragilisticexpealidocious.

  • find a blunt weapon. serrated edges won't work on robo exo-skeletons. nope.

  • alter your stride. robots can judge gait and injury, even height and intention, by stride, so put some rocks in your shoes and mix things up a bit. doing some ministry of silly walks stuff goes even further towards confusing them.

  • pretend that everything is normal. to forstall a mechanized killing spree, you must pretend that nothing is amiss.


...that should keel y'all alive for a while. you're welcome.


my feet are still cold.

i had decaf coffee for the first time last night.

also, i heard a rumor that bonnie bell dr pepper lip smacker is on the outs. i'm stocking up.

Thank you for the survival tips. They were sorely needed. You saved thousands of lives with this post and we thank you.

DAMN THE ROBOTS!

I find metal boil pots to be effective as well, but it makes it difficult to get thru doorways when wearing one.

The tin foil is a better choice. It's light, moldable, and doesn't clang when you run into things.

oooh - also get some welding goggles, in case they try to blind you with lasers.

Oh yes! Those are a must have! Especially in plagues of locusts!

the part that just cracks me up is "Using a $250,000 network analyser,"

It's a plot by The Man to get you to stop wearing your AFDB. Don't believe in their lies.

you mean it's really spelled e-n-c-h-a-n-t-e-d- p-l-a-t-i-p-i?

actually it's s-t-r-a-p-l-e-s-s e-v-e-n-i-n-g g-o-w-n.

but it's a common typo.

I mean, the keys are like right next to each other.

This is good to know, in case all the Roombas get together and take over the world.
