The Coming Of The Killbots

It's taken a long while, but after numerous cogent arguments, I've become convinced that Matt Yglesias is absolutely right when he says we should be terrified, half to death, about robots. Even the Five-Diamond whorebots that Eliot Spitzer wants our nation's public schools to fashion for him, in his Pleasuredome. Also, electric can openers: JUST WHAT ARE THOSE MOTHERFUCKERS UP TO, ANYWAY.

So, with that in mind, this video - of a robot totally rebuilding itself after it's kicked to bits - is absolutely terrifying! It's like the inventors and promoters of robots are just conceding our inferiority up front! Watch, as this robot exhibits the implacable rage and the unstoppable will to survive that will be our undoing when the Machines finally rise.
