Linky no worky?

Trying to link to this?

Governing Lethal Behavior in Autonomous Robots should be right up there.

One would imagine that if you have IBD you would need a lot of reading material. IYKWIM

I think that's covered in Robots' Rules of Order, NMUA.

"Printed on fine paper that can be used in emergency situations."

YAY for Sam_ !!!

That would be a constantly changing world, no doubt.

It depends on how close you are to a restroom, meanie.

Was it a good read??

Depends.

"Crocheting Adventures with Hyperbolic Planes"

I wonder if The Hyperbolic Planes wbagnfarb?

Do your bowels swell? oh,
Do they bellow?
Are they sometimes nasty yellow?
Do they smell so
Bad like hell? Oh!

You must've gotten IBD!
IBD will make you pee
You'll change the world!
You will see!
No one wants near-you-to-be!

They will not like you here or there
They will not like you anywhere
You are truly in a jam
(Thanks for sharing, brother Sam_)

Ohhh...a dependable simul with cindy.

*gotta change my pantaloons now*

I don't know about you, but I think "Collectible Spoons of the Third Reich" is the perfect coffee table book!

GMTA Siouxie. btw, I also belong to little brother Sam's blog.

Isaac Asimov covered the Lethal Robotics thing in 1942 with his Three Laws of Robotics:

1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
2. A robot must obey any orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

There. The listed book is now superfluous.

Isaac Asimov may have written a book about it Allen, but I learned those things from Terminator, The Movie. I wonder if Isaac copied his book from them?

Allen, I believe Asimov's laws were repealed by the Cylons. I'm sure Dr Baltar explained this at some point...

I'll betcha it doesn't say anything prohibiting Robots collecting Third Reich spoons.

Here's more by the way...

*SNORK!@ tw*

I still think Volume 1 sets the standard for fascist flatware.

The Cylons are why we'll never let Microsoft build robots.

Programmer: "Hey! I saved three lines of code space by deleting these silly restrictions..."

Imagining the Home Shopping Network show where they sell Third Reich Collectible Spoons . . . it's enough to irritate your bowels.

adventure and crocheting are not two words i generally connect.

A previously unpublished photo of Allen, meanie,Steve and Lairbo. IYKWIM.

Some people collect them . . .

Good book. Watch for the surprise twist at the end.

Remember Mother's and Father's Day is coming.

Nothing says love like "The Changing World of Inflammatory Bowel Disease."

As literature it was worth squat.

Makes for great bathroom reading, though...

MKJ: what does eBay cough up when you type in "irritable bowel".

nursecindy: Wow. That's an old pic. I only wish I still needed suspenders to hold my pants up.

'Living With Crazy Buttocks.' & 'The Origin of Faeces'
Damn, missed them when they were on the NYT list. Have to find the paperbacks.

I'm waiting for the paperback.

Whoa. I haven't youthed very well.

OT

Start the silent clock for 24...

/OT

sorry -- here's the story...

Irritable Bauer Syndrome.

"Isaac Asimov may have written a book about it Allen, but I learned those things from Terminator, The Movie. I wonder if Isaac copied his book from them?"

NCindy, Ahnold wasn't born when Asimov wrote that. If there was copying, it was the other way round.

pogo, Allen at Division has already informed me,via email, of that but not as nicely. I think the phrase dumb a## was used. Which is okay. I'll *SMACK* him later.

Speaking of dumb a##'s and books.... I found a review on Amazon for Dave's book, 'Dave Barry's Money Secrets'. The person that bought it was upset because it did not give enough 'serious' financial advice. There was another review by a retired shrink that was upset because Dave Barry's Guide To Guys was not an educational book that fully explained, in a serious manner, the way men think. I told the first reviewer if you see a financial book where the author is dressed like George Washington, chances are it is not a serious book. Especially since you almost never see Suze Orman dressed like that. At least not in public.

nc, I could be wrong, but I believe Suze Orman had the website remove those photos. Or, maybe it was George Washington who got them to cave ......

That's probably true meanie. btw, I didn't realize that some of the 'little blue' was sticking out when I posted that picture. Sorry.

I get Mother-in-law syndrome every other Sunday, like clockwork.

OT

Eric Clapton concert was INSANE!!!

/OT

Is he as handsome in person as he is on TV, Siouxie? I love Eric Clapton! "Layla" is my all time favorite song. Especially the piano solo at the end which I play pretty well myself. My 2nd favorite EC song is "Tears In Heaven" which never fails to make me cry. To be honest Eric Clapton could sing the ABC song and I would love it. Now aren't you glad you sold that kidney?

"living with crazy buttocks"

the story of my life...

"what does eBay cough up..." just totally tickled me.

cindy, he still looks pretty good! Doesn't say much other than "thank you" after every song, but he doesn't have to. He says it all with his talent. I'll post pics and videos on FB later on!

(btw...he didn't play Tears in Heaven and the Layla version he played was the acoustic one...not the original with the piano solo. I can't decide which one is my favorite though.)

the prize was first awarded in 1978 - - and was conceived to alleviate boredom during the Frankfurt Book Fair. So das Book Fair von Frankfurt ist immer boring?

I'll wait for the movies . . .

Back in the 70s, when crocheting was really big, I tried to make a hat once that came out not too unlike this model. If only I had just called it "Going Hyperbolic" -- now that WBAGNFARB.

"Crocheting Mathematicians" -- well, maybe for a technofunk group.

As the book reviewer wrote . . .

To the author of The Changing World of Inflammatory Bowel Disease:

I am reading your book in the smallest room in my house. The greater part of your work is now behind me.
