Perhaps, we will welcome our robot overlords after all.

The two giant robots who have directed traffic in Kinshasa, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, since 2013 have company. Agence France-Presse reports three new robots — developed by Women's Technology, an association of female engineers — were positioned this week across the city of 9 million people to direct traffic.

The giant robots are solar-powered, have chests that rotate and are equipped with cameras that send real-time information back to the police station, AFP reports. It's unclear why this is any different than having traffic cameras — besides the fact they look much cooler (and more intimidating) — but the robots appear to be having the desired effect.

"There are certain drivers who don't respect the traffic police. But with the robot it will be different," taxi driver Poro Zidane told AFP. "We should respect the robot."

Things I learned on Facebook today:

Chemtrails cause global warming
The TV show Firefly shows a hatred of women that some people find disturbing and scary
The greatest crime of the white man is when his children sneak into your garden and vandalise stuff and you promise to pay but not everything is paid for
That due to the fact the more coffee you drink the longer you live, I will live forever.
That Jhonen Vasquez is, unfortunately, still alive, and trying to sell Invader Zim again.

Congrats on the job, Bear!

Sorry about your dog's eye, Freeky.

Lab went well today; 413 slices of snake brain processed on slides. We finish Sunday, and then we start sticking them under the microscope!

Woo, fancy!  Good luck with the snake brains.

Wait, you're Freeky? FOR MONTHS I HAVE BEEN THINKING YOU WERE PIXIE.

And I was wondering why your folks were taking your dog to Mexico, but then I was like "Well she used to live in the US, maybe her folks still do".

Just more proof that when someone changes their name and avatar, they may as well become a whole new person as far as I'm concerned. I'm totally the kind of person who wouldn't recognize her own boyfriend if he suddenly changed his facial hair.

So you're saying that if I was on your list to be Nigeled immmediately, if I grew a mustache and changed my name I'd be moved back down the line?

Well, pretty much... except that I don't have a list, it's more about random interactions. Brownian motion on a macro scale, if you will.
So it is like a mosh-pit?
I'm hoping Nigel is the burly tattooed biker guy, and not the skinny-emo with anger issues or the spikes-on-every-surface goth.
Burly thinks it is cute if you push him and will either cover your back or buy you beer.
Skinny thinks the pit is an actual fight and is taking it too serious. It can only end with him alone in the pit and feeling dominant or with him crying.
Spike is usually just oblivious that he leaves everyone bleeding.

I'm pretty sure Nigel is not the coward at the edge kicking into the pit who flees when he gets pulled in.

You're hoping? I would hope you have enough experience with me by now not to have to hope.

It is missing the crucial "previous criminal record" or "prior arrests."

Because you know, when you have a series of nonviolent drug offenses it means you were taking the natural risk of getting your spine broken by cops.

Oh yeah, that one's part of their stock in trade.
