Security Robot Meets Untimely Demise After Drowning On The Job

WASHINGTON — It was one small step for security technology, but one giant leap in the wrong direction for robotkind.

A security robot in Washington, D.C. — lovingly named Steve — plunged down four steps into a fountain Monday.

 

Photos show the sad, waterlogged robot cop partially submerged in defeat. It’s unclear if any foul play was involved or if Steve simply rolled down a dark path on his own.

I think it has been revealed that the robot always wanted to be a space capsule and it felt it needed to practice re-entry.

 

It was sending a message.

Trying to understand the message but don't quite get it.  Is it..."This is your soul in hell"  top of ice cream truck? :wacko:

That particular image of Jesus is from the comedy movie Dogma. That was supposed to be the new, friendlier image of Jesus being introduced by the Catholic Church, and he was called "Buddy Christ".

Someone told a Russian weapon designer to build a Cold War tank and took it literally. :lol:

I still have the Wham-O Superball.  Starting to loose a little of it's bounce due to it's age 50+ years. (like me).  Being a kid, was a little nervous over the claim, stating it contained 50,000 lbs of compressed energy - one little dent and BOOM!  Found out later that was part of the vulcanization process, pressure needed along with the extra added sulfur

Hey ham. Ever have a Wham-O Turbo Tube when you were a kid?...

 

 

(...I did...and in fact you can make one by folding a standard 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper in a particular way)

 

I never seen that before. Thanks.
