Caught My Eye- Hookers, Robots & More
Robot Parking Garage to Open in New York
Would you trust a robot to park your car? The question will confront New Yorkers in February as the city’s first robotic parking opens in Chinatown. The technology has had a good track record overseas, but the only other public robotic garage in the United States has been troublesome, dropping vehicles and trapping cars because of technical glitches.
Woman MP demands hookers for the troops
A top female politician Ãn Holland wants Dutch prostitutes sent abroad with the troops to help them relax.
Annemarie Jorritsma, a politician for the centre-right People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy (VVD) and the mayor of the town of Almere, went on national Dutch TV to demand the ‘extra benefits’ for soldiers.
She added: “The army must think about how their soldiers can let off some steam.”
How about some PandaMonium.

Is that where logic and rational thought are located?

I guess that the dictionary I used wasn’t very good.

Let me just say that the report about the Dutch politician that suggested that soldiers should be accompanied by prostitutes(or ‘sex workers’ as they are more commonly called these days) is laughed at and dismissed under the arguement that if a professional soldier can’t live without 6 months of sex he has too little self-restraint to be in the military anyway.
And for clarity purposes, i also like to add that the politician in question is a fraud that diverted federal licenses to the construction company of her husband therefore detracting said company from the bureaucratic procedures that apply to everbody else, or atleast everybody that is not politically connected.
In other words, it’s a questionable statement from a questionable person. And it doesn’t reflect anyone’s perspective but her own.
“Please pardon me for attempting to think like a guy, but robot hookers makes me think “ouch” followed closely by “ewww.” “
It’s funny, but in the (near) future i think you will see RealDolls with a degree of artificial intelligence with body and skin becoming more and more human like as technology evolves.
In fact, there might even be a time when AI has progressed to such a stage that it will resemble human intelligence, and as such also give them rights.
Then, the AI of the androids will become increasingly superior to that of humans whose intelligence will have become inferior to that of their robotic counterparts.
Sure, sci-fi now. But with the new breakthroughs in cloning, cell research, tissue cultures, nano and quantum technology; humanity is proceeding ever close to synthesizing the flesh with the mechanic.

Robots couldn’t do a worse job than a lot of the drivers in Orange County.

Could be worse. Could be robot hookers.
Please pardon me for attempting to think like a guy, but robot hookers makes me think “ouch” followed closely by “ewww.”
