Sign of the Apocalypse #55: Optimus Prime Dies of Prostate Cancer

2 Mar

Any story titled Optimus Prime dies of Prostate Cancer must be satire right? Well, what if it was a press release drawing attention to the importance of getting tested for prostate cancer using the satirical death of a cartoon character as its battle cry? Still not good enough? What if it was written as if the event in question, the satirical death of a fake character, was real? Well, that's a sign of the apocalypse.

Signs of the Apocalypse #5: FOX News likes “Fahrenheit 9/11”

15 Jun

Yes, you read that correctally. Fox News likes "Fahrenheit 9/11":

The crowd that gave Michael Moore's controversial "Fahrenheit 9/11" a standing ovation last night at the Ziegfeld Theatre premiere certainly didn't have to be encouraged at all to show their appreciation. From liberal radio host and writer Al Franken to actor/director Tim Robbins, Moore was in his element. But once "F9/11" gets to audiences beyond screenings, it won't be dependent on celebrities for approbation. It turns out to be a really brilliant piece of work, and a film that members of all political parties should see without fail.

It’s offical: Humans obsolete

18 May

In a further sign of the apocalypse (and the robot conspiracy), a student at Carnegie Mellon has developed a origami folding robot.

Devin Balkcom, a student in Carnegie Mellon University's doctoral program in robotics, was looking for a challenge when he decided to develop the world's first origami-folding robot as the subject of his thesis. Origami, the ancient Japanese art of paper sculpture, looks deceptively simple at first glance.

If we can train a robot to fold paper into frogs and swans, what use will robots have for humans in the future?

Free Tibet? No, free George Michael

11 Mar

The Apocalypse may be closer then we think. Besides human hot dogs, we also have this tidbit:

British singer George Michael said today he was retiring from the music business and intended instead to put all his future songs on the Internet – for free.

There may be no such thing as a free lunch, but there is free George Micheal.
