I just really hope my tax dollars are not subsidizing the creation of robo-squirrels.

It would be more productive than subsidizing ethanol...

Very True.

And the robo-squirrels could be programmed to run in little hamster wheels to power our vehicles.

Solution to the ethanol problem: train humans to run in little hamster wheels.
Solution to the trailer hitch testes: let robo-squirrels collect the nuts.

:D Genius!

And if the people in the treadmills were the subsidizing politicians, we'd solve all the problems in one stroke!

Okay... not to derail the thread, but I think the ad-ware detected "Dick" (as in Philip K.) "treadmill", and "robo-"... oh, and probably nuts... and decided to offer me a banner ad for a Gay Fitness Club.

Only intelligent advertising could zero in with such precision to offer me the three things I am least interested in on a single banner ad....

Yes... The AI believes that I am interested in dating gay asian men, cheating at World of Warcraft and voting for John McCain. I'm not sure if that grouping is significant.

It is smarter than the AI that sends me spam, though: I haven't seen a single ad for Viagra or "manhood" enlargement.

Although now I probably will. Damn.
