1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
2. A robot must obey the orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.It's difficult to tell how the robot toilet I used might defend itself from advanced physical or electronic attacks, but it's clear that the Quick Fuel automated filling (and emptying) station was at least designed to minimize opportunities for specific kinds of abuse. While waiting for the bathroom to finish cleaning itself I was approached by a middle-aged gentleman in a nice paisley shirt and wool coat. "There's not a urinal in there," he said, giving me a quick rundown of what to expect once I was inside. "We didn't install urinals because people shit in them."
The CVB may never adopt it as an official slogan, but it's possible that the message emblazoned across these cotton wearables may actually accomplish their creator's stated goal to bring Memphis together "one t-shirt at a time."
It's nice to scroll the M.A.F. Facebook page just to see who shows up.
This photograph raises some interesting questions. Like, is there anywhere else in the world where you can purchase barbecue ribs from the endcap of your neighborhood pharmacy? And if there is such a place, are the ribs considered to be allergy relief medicine there to? And finally, if this “allergy relief” is covered by Obamacare, can we move past our differences and figure out a way to give the man four more years?
I have to admit, given the Green family's history of being jerks for Jesus, I found this wedding display in the Germantown Hobby Lobby heartening.
Yeah, yeah, I know. Some prankster probably moved the masculine, burlap-wrapped letter "S" following the second "MR." But here at FOTW we try to celebrate signs and wonders whenever we can.
On the other hand, maybe they just like "Broken Wings."
The good news: Individually packaged fried eggs and waffles are now available at area Family Dollars and they're only a dollar each.The bad news: Instead of being made out of eggs and whatever waffles are made out of these food items are made out of marshmallow and gummy candy. That means they probably aren't part of a balanced breakfast.
Here's a picture of what they look like on a plate.
Here's what they look like on a plate with hot sauce.
While browsing through Walgreens for stocking stuffers your Pesky Fly stumbled across a toy I've been calling Humpy the Dinosaur.
And if the packaging isn't suggestive enough for you, the product sounds like it might have been named for a condom. In fact, I kind of hope it was named for a condom. The alternatives are almost too ghastly to consider.
Longtime readers are probably aware that your Pesky Fly is a big fan of Viet Hoa, an international market on Cleveland specializing in Asian and Mexican goods. You know like Moco de Gorila shampoo and hair gel.
That means Gorilla Snot for the English- only crowd. Just the stuff for slicking back an unruly mop.
I was so intrigued by Gorilla Snot that I did a little snooping. And by snooping I mean I Googled it and discovered that the Mexico-based company ran afoul of California clean air regulations because Gorilla Snot contains smog-producing ingredients.
According to reports the makers of Gorilla Snot have been cooperative in resolving the matter.
Anyway, if your sculptured hairstyle requires smog-inducing ape snot to stay put... There it is.
