Machine Guns

We already knew robots think we taste like bacon. Now, they've finally started the revolution. Humanity is doomed.

Think I'm exaggerating? This has been a long time coming. Even in the 1960s, police were aware of the armed machine menace. Consider this excerpt from the history book I'm currently reading for class about the 1960s civil rights movement:
"Police recorded only four march-related arrests, all of white people: one Nazi, two violent hecklers, and a health insurance computer who drove to work with a loaded shotgun."

Sure, the footnote claims that "computer" refered to a human who makes computations. But who wants to bet that explanation was typed on a computer in the first place? They cover their tracks, these machines do....

Clearly my absence has caused you to lose the little sanity you once clung to.
