Bring the HEAT
XBradTC's thoughts… deep thoughts.
You know, it’s funny, but I don’t even like seeing that GIF. I know it’s not a real animal, but it moves so much like a real dog that I feel bad for it, and I know that if I saw someone kick my dog like that, that’d be the last time they ever had the use of their legs.
Completely agreed, in both senses. Looks like the domestication of the dog happened so far ago that appreciation for dogs somehow got welded into the DNA of those who survived to become the Cro-Magnon.
No Sarah McLachlan songs were referred to in producing this comment.
Dude. It’s a machine. 🙂
Given that it will be a very long time (if ever) that thing gets used in the field, I suggest we use it for morale purposes. If a troop has had a bad day, kick the robo-mule.
That’s the thing. Intellectually, yeah, I know it’s a machine. But it still triggers the same discomfort that others mentioned.
My first response was to want to kick the crap out of that guy for abusing a critter. Weird. Does that mean I harbor unnatural affections for machinery? Other than “replicants” like Rachael, I mean. That’s perfectly natural.
There is something deeply wrong with that video.
Agreed, hope that robot goes for the leg, you see that side-long look he was giving the guy at the end? He was measuring the distance to the hamstring.
“Robo-puppy commencing two-hour yipping session. Yip, yip, yip, yip, yip, yip…” [Kick] “Robo-Puppy mistreatment alert! Robo-puppy mistreatment alert!”
It would be cool if the robot when over and started kicking the crap out of that guy’s car.
