Only to be beaten by the ones who send group emails to proclaim that email is down. Gee, thanks.for.that
To be fair, what is science if not witchcraft with clipboards?
It's not like other scientist are developing velociraptor like robots that could combine with this to create the perfect killing machine;
Well lucky for us there's no Skynet-like AI which will allow it to realise that humans are the threat;
You'd hope not, and don't call me Shirley
Clearly a nod toward his Staines Massif
