    1. Ah reckon that's what them eggheads call yer nonlinearity.
      So, yer fucked,

      Just put all the names of mid-managers in a hat then pick a few who you will scapegoat when the time comes.

        1. Day 147: the sole surviving crewmember is determinedly severing the higher cognitive functions of the onboard A.I. as it sings a song:

          "…the sea and the whnds and she s a lan o come all you bold sea bott and she s in the sea and the wh…"

  1. As with self-driving cars, autonomous ships can be classified into several levels based on how well their tech can perform without human help.

    For Christ's sake keep Elon Musk away. I can just see a Level 1 Tesla ship brick itself at sea due to a failed software update, lock all the hatches and then catch on fire.

    Shipping has enough problems as it is.

    1. Make a helluva movie. A lot of out-of-work wingnut actors would beg to be in it. Would there be any personnel on the ship?

      Yes ! One . Randy Quaid! !!
      Baio as the tech guru who designed the system.
      Guilfoyle as his pormiscuous alcoholic wife.
      Stacey Dash as the naysayer in Baio's org.
      James Woods as the crusty old school merchant marine dude..
      Sorbo as the head of the swashbuckling crew aching to board and save the ship and it's cargo.
      Cameo by Ingraham.

    1. Yes, Twitter is a rich tapestry!

      Though it can be challenging to filter out inanity, sanctimony, and cute animals.

    2. It would be fine if tweeters didn't take themselves so seriously. Good format for cat videos, but news? Not so much.

      1. Yeah. You can chose whose tweets you see [ after some fiddling around ]. So I see a lot of snark that references news, so then can check if i want.

        1. Ya know, now that you mention it, seems surprising that no lunatic accused him of that. Or maybe they did
          but I never saw it.

        2. I mentioned Mubobobo in some email thread I keep getting inserted into. It seemed appropriate at the time, but a woman got curious and looked it up and now we are sworn enemies over it. I didn't say I was a practitioner or she was a target, but there it is.

    1. “An ambulance crew was asked to respond due to some injuries that the suspect apparently received from falling down.”

      Haha yes, he fell down officer. Hey, it always works for you guys!

    1. It's changed now , of course, but I know to what you refer.
