Amazon Working on Drone Delivery, Apocalypse

Posted on December 2, 2013 1:00 pm

So Amazon is working on delivery by drone. I guess the online store which revolutionized the retail industry has decided to go after the one low tech part left of them: Delivery of goods by truck. Isn’t it more efficient to have robots do that? And even if it isn’t more efficient, isn’t it much cooler?

Science fiction never get things right. I mean, I guess it was right about Skynet, but they assumed the military would develop it when instead it’s going to be made by an online retailer. And that’s much scarier, because now Skynet will know exactly where each of us live, and, by analyzing our purchasing habits, know all our individual weaknesses.

Then again, think of the convenience of getting anything you order from Amazon in only 30 minutes. That’s well worth the risk of the destruction of mankind.

    Just think of all the free goodies that can be had if one keeps their trap-shooting skills sharp.

    Didn’t we see something like this in “Scott Pilgrim vs the World”? Only instead of a drone, it was a hot Mary Elizabeth Winstead delivering the package…? I guess I could have left out the “hot” part; that’s redundant…

    I suppose I have to accept a certain number of casualties in exchange for fast, convenient delivery. But what happens when the machines decide they like the taste of Man?

    Then they’ll deliver cookbooks, Vaktatunnen.

    I’ve long said that science fiction writers, being wrong 100% of the time, owe it to us to make all the crappy dystopian predictions they can to ensure a bright future.

    Hello, Amazon? I’d like a pint jar of acetone peroxide. It’s a gift. Here’s the delivery address. Have the drone drop it from about 20ft up. kthnxbai.

    Roboyts already like the taste of man. The japaneese have proven that to robots, we taste like bacon
