Hackerboy gets battle robots for Christmas.  Note the elevation controlled missile battery on a rotating gun.  It reaches them right out and touches things.

It would have been <i>one</i> bot but I successfully lobbied for a second so his battle bot can battle another bot.  This one shoots Malibu Barbie dinner plates.

They are quite fun.  In fact Cruel Wife e:mailed me today to tell me:

<blockquote>These robots totally ROCK!</blockquote>

OOoooh, Bad Mom.  Playing with your son’s Christmas toy before Christmas???  Someone is getting coal or reindeer poo in her stocking.

HackerBoyBot-2The above pic is before duking it out in the kitchen one room away.  No armor this time.  Three hits to the schnoz and you are out.

Here I knocked out CW’s bot with three fast strikes to the nose grid and froze her bot.  Classic match.  And Melody was an observer to make sure it all went well.  It seemed up and up.  (Except that I blocked CW’s sight so she could not line up a shot on me other than firing blind.)

Cry Havok. Again.

Cry havok!  And let slip the cats of war.

Cats?  Oh my, yes, cats.  Number four is the best.  A couple are pretty awful p-shop jobs.  Oh well, can’t win them all.

I’d like to think the men and women in our armed services would get a laugh out of this.

I love the writing style here.  DO NOT ask yourself what he is doing with his other hand.  Don’t do it.  Creepy.

Hey, I have an idea!  But first, read this,  here’s a snippet…

Cell phones sold in Chicago after Jan. 1 would have to be equipped with a special feature that allows parents to block kids from texting while driving, under a crackdown proposed Wednesday by the City Council’s most powerful alderman.

Edward M. Burke (14th) proposed the surprise restriction at the last meeting of the old City Council in an effort to stop what he calls an “epidemic” of texting while driving, much of it involving young drivers.

Here’s my idea.  Ready?

How about not giving them a cell phone?  There’s a thought.  It’s so crazy, it might just work.

Ugliest damn goat I ever saw.  It looks like the love child of Dr. Ruth and Marty Feldman.  Or maybe Feldman and Steven Tyler.

Note:  I’m not dissing Feldman – he made fun of himself, too.

Sources involved in the operation that took down Usama bin Laden told Fox News the terrorist leader acted “scared” and “completely confused” in his final moments, “shoving his wife” at the Navy SEAL who ultimately shot him.   – Fox News

Good.  I hope he did in utter pants-shitting terror.  Oh dear, did I say that out loud?

Oh.  I even posted it.  Oopsie.

From CBSNews:

The U.N.’s independent investigator on extrajudicial killings has called on the United States to reveal more details of the raid on Osama bin Laden’s Pakistan hideaway to allow experts to assess the legality of his killing.

[South African law professor] Heyns says “it will be particularly important to know if the planning of the mission allowed an effort to capture Bin Laden.

Gosh, did the bombings in Libya, Kosovo, and Iraq allow for efforts to capture those bombed first?  What difference between a bomb and a SEAL?  A SEAL is a pro, just as deadly, and much less likely to kill an innocent bystander.  What in hell do all these people care about a douchebag terrorist?
