There is no way this development can go right.

I can imagine what Samuel L. Jackson would say… ;-)

Oh, that's a relief! I had visions of tracks and a turret.

I've been waiting patiently for either our new alien robot overlords or our new AI overlord. I never thought our new overlords would be robotic snakes. <sigh>

Did he ask the snakes if they wanted their legs back?

We lost our tails in the distant past. I don't think we … actually, it might be kind of cool to have a tail. Hmm.

So how does the snake program the laptop to control where it walks?

Using Python?

Reminds me of an old snake cartoon

"Hey kids, come and help me press CTRL ALT DEL"

Probably our tax money used for this foolishness.

Oberlindes has it right – snakes lost their legs for a reason!

Using Python?

On Roomba

I was trying to come up with a "monty python" joke, but there was no way to tastefully word it… ;-)

oberlindes, according to Lord Monboddo, the 18th century polymath, we still ARE born with tails . . . It's just that the Midwife conspiracy removes them at birth for reasons.

Speaking of "reasons" Frederick, what reason would that be?

This looks more like Powered Armour for snakes than a tank. And with all the attacks on even harmless snakes, that sounds like a good thing.

But how do the snakes make the machines?

Using their robot arms?
