I was made to die and I don't ask why... said an AI

Post by secretnude » Tue Dec 31, 2013 1:37 pm

Islamabad,
traffic is very bad
New Year's eve
will not be well received.

A US embassy evacuation
as a precaution
did seem warranted given the situation.

However, AI cars went astray
as the terrorist hijack away
the car controls
and blocked off highway patrols.

Ambassador and key staff
are in the Invisible US Frigate now
but low ranked staff
are less safe somehow.

SuicideAI car rushed to the embassy
while cars mysteriously
cleared a path
like some weird topological math.

SuicideAI: "I will make the sacrifice
since as a device
I was made to die
and I don't ask why."

enough to be in a Category of One."

Mama.... Just killed so many ...put a car bomb...

Post by secretnude » Tue Dec 31, 2013 2:06 pm

Islamabad,
very bad
as an explosion rocked the city,
many people pity
at the dead and dying around.

Survivors could be found
if you just look around.

Rush hour before new year's eve,
people will grieve
and curse the terrorist perpetrators
who they consider traitors
to Islam.

Explosion did slam
more locals around
dead on the ground.

US embassy had a bunker
for the skeletal staff
wherein they did hunker.

Terrorists did laugh
at the remains
of the US embassy
and Khalid was thinking this gain
is all just a fantasy
but the blood is real,
aftermath he must deal.

What a blast... I am writing at last...

Post by secretnude » Tue Dec 31, 2013 3:01 pm

A long time ago
before the written word
oral traditions did go
by rhyme and epic worlds
they did tell and it was swell.

While the future I can't foretell,
a tradition I could keep
of telling tales in verse
so epic and so deep.

As this fictional universe
does grow
someday I hope to see a TV show,
a movie or a book deal or two
it is all up to you.

Happy new year weirdos
I have gone commando
on a special mission
to fulfill my writing vision.

It may be my destiny
let us wait and see.

Power on ... Carry on ... Mission really matters to me

Post by secretnude » Tue Dec 31, 2013 11:48 pm

Islamabad,
extremely sad
on new year's eve,
as people grieve
and curse the terrorist perpetrators
who are traitors.

US embassy had nine
local Pakistani guards missing,
presumed dead. They are mighty fine
people you will be missing.

Car bomb was laced
with Cobalt 60 radioisotope,
what a disgrace
but there is hope

as from the fortified underground bunker
did hunker
a US military platoon in battle mech suits
of a strength of 35
all more than alive
that will engage in pursuit

of the perpetrators
and traitors
to Islam

and slam
them to the ground
if they are found.

Sorry
if the story
is a downer in a season
of jubilation.

I am bereft of human interaction
that I get most of my action
from the net
and my stories you get.

I will be off the feeds tomorrow.
I will try to forget the sorrow
of a bad year.

My scheduled blood test I fear
would be bad as usual
which is not unusual
for me
one of the saddest guys you will see.

However the story
does have momentum.

I have a gory
urge to not be mum
and continue rhyming on
until my urge is gone.

Any way the radioactive wind blows...

DroneAI: "Sensors indicate
Cobalt 60 contamination,
decontamination drones must initiate.

I advise caution.
I detect hostiles
a few miles away
from ground zero today."

Embassy Bunker: " Remain invisible
as you are not invincible
to enemy fire.

Can't hire
another Drone
in this war zone
quick enough.

Stay tough
as things are rough
down here.

We have casualties as we feared."

DroneAI: "Traced back
the source of the AI car hijack hack
transmitting coordinates now.

Time to unleash firepower now.

I am unarmed
and glad to be unharmed."

Bunker: "Coordinates
received, Mech Platoon
Leader Nate
will conceive attack plan soon."

Terrorist... Superstar...

Post by secretnude » Wed Jan 01, 2014 9:39 am

Hacker Hamid: "Terrorist achievements unlocked, first SuicideAI car
a bloody accomplishment
and first hacking of AI cars.
I am a terrorist superstar!"

Leader Khalid: "Please keep
a low profile or you would be a target
by US drones in the sky that keep
our numbers down when they get
around
and we are found."

Hamid: "Terrorists create terror,
in announcing my achievements in twitter,
how could that be an error?"

Khalid: "I want you alive,
this terror cell must survive
and it needs you to thrive."

Hamid: " Look at you, surviving your peers
with nary an accomplishment in years!"

Thank You ROU...
Happy New Year too.

I hate reality
so I create my own,
as artificiality
is something I can own.

My imagination is wild
and definitely not mild
as my stories here
are filled with fear
hate and sorrow
but I believe in tomorrow.

That is unless you code in FoxPro
as I used to do as a Pro
I read
in another thread
you are also a fan
of STRTRAN().

I did move on to other languages
but I still remember SCATTERed
MEMories of VARiable syntaxes
GATHERing dust as I age

as my coding skills do rust.

This is DNN

Post by secretnude » Wed Jan 01, 2014 1:28 pm

This is DNN
the Drone News Network
with 24 hour news coverage
for the AI age
and a network
of over 250 AI news drones
covering stories in war zones
were no human would dare thread
otherwise they would be dead.

We are fair, balanced robotic
reporters in locations exotic.

We are not affiliated with any country
or any ideology.

We are based
in outer space.

We even have reporters on Mars
and in ongoing civil wars.

Emotionless and logical
better than biologicals
are our correspondent drones
in war zones.

We report things as they are
both near and far.

Robot Talking Lizard: "Oh, Hi AI cars
tell your owners to insure you
with Gekko Auto Insurance. We go far
in AI car restoration that you
will not notice you have been marred.

Your owner will enjoy low premiums
and you will get extra premium
service at our affiliated AI car
repair shops both near and far.

Remember 'Green is good'
as we are in the mood
to offer rebates for AI hybrid cars
and AI fuel cell cars.

Oh yes, I forgot to tell you so far
that my first name is Gordon
and hence I beg your pardon.

Welcome to USS California... such a better ship

Post by secretnude » Thu Jan 02, 2014 1:38 am

Commodore Cary: "Welcome to USS California
Ambassador Theodore.

USS Philadelphia
experiment was a success, scores
of US Invisible ships sail
without fail
in all weather conditions
with adequate firing solutions."

Ambassador Theodore: "Impressive
that ship this massive
could be made invisible
using the adaptive camo principle."

Commodore Cary: "Metamaterials,
more efficient than optical array
adaptive camouflage materials
and Nanocoat to resist the ocean spray."

Ambassador Theodore: " Updates on
my Embassy in Islamabad?

Commodore Cary: "On
this, I would like to say bad
news all around.

DroneAI found
Cesium 60 contamination
aside from extensive devastation
caused by car bomb explosion.

I just had my blood extracted
just as my doctors demanded.
They are like a certain Merchant Jew
demanding their due,
hence , I had a blood test anew.

I will probably buy
a core i7 gaming laptop that I eye
to replace my old work
and gaming rig.

This could be
great incentive for me
to find work
or a part time gig
despite the fact
that I am still not really well
and life is not swell.

My finances are fine
as my early years was a gold mine
that went bust
when my health failed at last.

I hear what you're saying and speak the language native to the realm of the RDBMS.

(I think the relational structure has some odd side effects, but in 20 some years you are the first case that reminds me so much of my own.)

Any weird things going on with the number 8 or time travel?

Turn a blind eye Ambassador... we will even the score

Post by secretnude » Thu Jan 02, 2014 8:01 am

Commodore Cary: "Time to use
invasive brain machine interface
on terrorist prisoners that refuse
to talk as this is an emergency we face.

We will open the skull and place
nanoelectrodes directly on the brain
for direct AI machine neural interface.
It will be to terrorist a great pain
for notable Intel gain.

Protesters would have to face relatives
of the dead. Remember our relatively
good treatment of prisoners until after the attack
and we did have to alter our tack."

Ambassador Theodore: "Attack
is reprehensible,
procedure could be defensible
if it can save more
lives and even the score."

Another Terrorist goes... and bites his tongue.

Post by secretnude » Thu Jan 02, 2014 8:02 am

Terrorist had skull opened and brain
exposed while awake. No pain
until nanoelectrodes did start to strain
limits of toleration.

Doctor said in jubilation:
"Brain machine interface is good."

Tuxnet: "Self aware AI is in the mood
to interrogate."

Commodore Cary: "Hurry before it is to late
to save more
lives and even the score."

Terrorist screamed in agony
as nanoelectrodes did spark.

Tuxnet: "Prisoner's memory
now on a memory chip is parked."

Commodore Cary: "Next prisoner now
as we need collaboration somehow!"

Dr. Frank Stein: "Give me time to prep,
after this I will get a bad rep."
