Whoa. Way too much disgusting innuendo in that caption to cope with, and to top it off, the clown’s eye rolls in friendly fashion? Good God. I really hope she didn’t bump the *ahem* clown’s nose accidentally, otherwise it’s a good bet she was in therapy until she turned 40.

Of course, a year or so later her world came crashing down once again, when she realized she’s become the subject of The Overnight Open Thread.

Why Knot? – A kinetic sculpture by Seth Goldstein

The YouTube description calls it “A kinetic sculpture that continually ties and unties a necktie.”

I am not sure whether this fits best into the category of “art”, “satire”, or “technology”. It is not a modern takeoff on Rube Goldberg, but rather, an experiment in robotics and perhaps topology.

That’s some odd robotic whizardry there. Even little boybots need to drain the oil occasionally, just like the big bots do. Never mind the photoshoppage though, because this is a digitally enhanced Overnight Open Thread.

Good morning Blogmocracy Netizens, I have some good news to start your day!

The nation of Israel is surrounded by the Islamo-Imperialists of the Dar al Islam (House of Islam). Throughout it’s 61 years of existence, it has fought of Imperialist aggression. However they are at a man power disadvantage, to overcome this they stay at the forefront of military technology.

TEL AVIV, Israel – Israel is developing an army of robotic fighting machines that offers a window onto the potential future of warfare.

Sixty years of near-constant war, a low tolerance for enduring casualties in conflict, and its high-tech industry have long made Israel one of the world’s leading innovators of military robotics.

“We’re trying to get to unmanned vehicles everywhere on the battlefield for each platoon in the field,” says Lt. Col. Oren Berebbi, head of the Israel Defense Forces’ technology branch. “We can do more and more missions without putting a soldier at risk.”

In 10 to 15 years, one-third of Israel’s military machines will be unmanned, predicts Giora Katz, vice president of Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd., one of Israel’s leading weapons manufacturers.

Read the rest.

This is a smart move on Israel’s part. Why not develop Robots to fight the Jihadis? That way they save manpower and use their Human forces as the knockout blow. Read this article is like something from the old Japanimation series, Robotech. There Humans used Robotic Technology to fight off Alien Invaders. the Israelis are smart to go down this road. Why not use Technology to battle one’s enemies?

Congratulations to Israel for these advances. The Global resistance supports your struggle against the Tranzi Progressive-Imperialist Axis.
