    Worth repeating ...

    "The first rule of automation should be, 'There must be a Big Red Button that, when pressed, aborts the entire sequence of events.' The second rule of automation should be, 'When aborted, prior to completion, the sequence must be able to roll back all actions taken.'"
    I have very high hopes that seriousness is a reversible condition.

    Uhmm, I've seen enough "Terminator" movies to know that this isn't going to end well for everyone.

    Terminator....now if machines could become smart and that I doubt, then why would they care?
    I fail to see why they would shoot up the planet and hunt down humans, and kill all other life in the process, at all?
    They could leave for one thing, space, vacuum, asteroids, none of it matters to machines, in fact the resources would probably be of interest to them.
