I wonder if it has a decent four-seamer?

You'll be commenting on how great it was that we made a bunch of robo cops and crime went down. :-D

Hey, cops I can get behind. They actually serve a purpose beyond throwing a baseball. Unless they can modify this thing to use baseballs as a weapon. ;-D

The S-3, which weighs about 200 pounds and resembles a small car, the Sherpa DM, a heavy-duty robot made for the Army by Lawrenceville start-up Re2 Inc., and the Talon, which is made by a Boston firm.

Why do I get the feeling this is the opening line to a very odd joke? :-?

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I was picturing something tougher, like the evil robot from Robocop- AT 180 or whatever it was called. :-?

Um, don't these people watch science fiction movies? There's no way those things don't go berserk. Like the Defense Department could ever build a robot that doesn't turn on humanity. I'm telling you, there'll be chaos in that stadium.

Then we're all doomed.

(Okay, so I just noticed that the game was last night. But it'll happen one day. James Cameron told me so.)

CMU has created some great inventions that can be used for our safety in this country. My wife works there and I have seen some up close. They are really neat to see and I am sure will come in handy in the future somehow. We just dont know yet :-?
