November 7, 2006

Seeing as how I never comment on elections, I've posted up two videos today, one on Korean experimental robot border guards with machineguns and the other a cooking video on how to make a good peanut butter and salad dressing sandwich. Just something to pass the time with until the election results are in.






Commentary

By tonight everyone will know whether how the political balance has shifted in the Legislature and by extention, the country.

No real person uses salad dressing instead of mayonnaise; worse yet, he omitted the lettuce.

No real person places a semicolon after the word mayonnaise. I can picure the lettuce.

Don't be too sure, Wretchard. In the State of Washington, in 2004, it took several recounts and funny little discoveries of "previously overlooked" batches of ballots before Queen Gregoire ascended to her throne in Olympia by a margin of 133 votes. It took until June 6, 2005 to settle on an official count.

Well, so far one voter has smashed a machine over fears of a conspiracy, there's an FBI probe on voter intimidation in VA, and a poll extension in Cuhayoga, OH. What did the Carpenters used to sing? "It's Only Just Begun". Just relax and make yourself a peanut butter and sandwich dressing sandwich.

Heavy turnout and dirty tricks: The Gateway Pundit has a roundup news reflecting the intensity of the political fight.

It's less nerve-wracking to watch that Korean border guard robot.

Chelsea Clinton was told her name was not in the voter registration books at her polling site on West 20th Street, Manhattan. It turned out the registration book for her district had been mistakenly sent to the wrong location, said New York City Board of Elections Executive Director John Ravitz. (CNN)

Experts on the regime do not expect it to fold quickly or easily. The exiled Hwang Jang-yop, 83, who was the chief ideologue in Pyongyang before his astonishing defection to the South in the late 1990s, says only the overthrow of Kim Jong-il could end its nuclear ambitions.

Kim could also easily withstand the envisaged United Nations sanctions, he added.

Between seeing that Korean war-bot and a similar (but apparently much more mobile) set of robots currently being tested by the US military, I'm more convinced than ever that we're not too far away from fielding "droid armies" in many situations. It'll be a long time before we trust kill or no kill decisions to computers (at least in ground combat situation), but in the mean time it could keep our guys out of some of the most dangerous situations, all while scaring the tar out of the enemy. Plus, robots are crack shots given that they don't breathe, don't get muscle fatigue, and experience little interference from weapon recoil.

Thanks for the light-hearted posts, Wretchard.

I hate to post twice in a row, but I thought this was too funny (and appropriate) to not share. Plus, it's yet another way to kill some time.

Only a [insert awful adjective here] accepts cooking tips from a fat dwarf standing on a telephone book! What kind of salad dressing can be spread with a knife on bread? Ugh! Only communists [and fat dwarfs] prefer smooth peanut butter to crunchy. Only a fat dwarf, peanut-butter-eating, knife-thick-salad-dressing-spreading, standing-on-a-telephone-book-anti-semite would prefer white bread to a nice seeded rye bread. He probably lost his teeth years ago.

I'm a gonna move along now, hear?
