I happened upon this video recently. It is a video of a legged locomotion machine that is funded by DARPA. DARPA is known by some as the “Mad Scientist” wing of the Pentagon and is famous for several things, including the autonomous vehicle race through traffic in November of last year. I find it to be both intriguing and creepy. It’s also a bit noisy, but I have had coffee makers that could compare to it. 😕 Look at how closely the legs on this machine resemble human legs as it corrects itself when it stumbles (or someone kicks it). Freaky!
That being said, if I were in the woods while this thing came trouncing by, I would have shat myself instantly, and cried like a little girl.
I’ll will tell you what is pissing me off today. Ebay. Damned Ebay. Well, not Ebay itself, but people on Ebay who buy your shit and then decide that they don’t want to pay for it. Assholes. It doesn’t matter if your buying wigs for your wife or a Technomarine watch for yourself. Pay for it!
I will probably jinx myself with this comment, but I have a perfect feedback score. 100%. That’s right, perfect. And I plan on keeping it that way. I have bought several things and sold several things, and I make it one of my priorities to satisfy the auction winner, or if I am buying, the seller.
Some people apparently do no see things that way I do. Maybe Ebay is some sort of a game to them. They make bids and then back out when it comes time to pay. Then I have to file a non-paying bidder form and get slandered by / receive death threats from the non-paying bidder because I have ruined their feedback that they have worked so hard on. Well all I can say is pay for your god-damned merchandise and STFU! You’re the one who got yourself into this mess to begin with fool!
So, what’s pissing you off today?
