SkyNet Awaits

or maybe Colossus or MME. Take your pick before you have no mouth and must scream.

The US Navy recently lost control of one of their MQ-8B Fire Scout drone helicopters. Fail-safes were supposed to kick in and land it if contact was lost. As I said, supposed to. In fact the drone kept flying for 23 miles and even invaded restricted air space around Washington D.C. I think its back to the old electronic brain for these nautical boffins.

If we are lucky we will get Dr. Falken's computer at NORAD wanting to play a game at this rate. If not, do you know where the fall0out shelter is and how much food&water is stored there? You may want to get acquainted quick.
