I For One Welcome Our New Robotic Dog Overlords: The Daily Nooner (EST)!

Robotic Dogs Are Coming To Kill You Remember when everyone was freaking out about killer bees? Back in the 90s they were the imminent threat du jour, pressing northward in a buzzing swarm of honey, stingers and death. We were completely terrified knowing that these insanely aggressive bees were coming to destroy us all... And then nothing happened.
