    I'm betting it's "gone in sixty seconds." They could at least make it look like R2D2.

    I am considering becoming a mountain man. All I would have to worry about would be cougars, bears, snakes, and freezing to death. Seem better to me than 1984.

    I think that is a dumb idea. Those things are going to get stolen, damaged, kicked over, shot at, etc. If LE really wants to go "big brother," it would be better to go to overlapping CCTV coverage like London has, not that I think that is good idea either. BTW, London has over a half a million CCTV cameras! You can't scratch your butt in London without it getting caught on CCTV. If you ever get knifed in London, which is not unlikely, they will have great footage of it!

    I know this device is not armed, but anytime someone comes up with a robotic cop idea, I am reminded of a line Chuck Norris had in a police movie. Another cop mentioned the idea of robotic cops. Norris' character said, "Great. Just what we need. More guns on the street with no brains attached."

    People are always saying we need high caliber police officers. This one looks like about 1,500 caliber to me at least!

    I used to think about being a mountain man, but them I have a good friend who is a lesbian. I can really identify with her, so I've decided I'm going to be like her when I grow up.

    Unfortunately, my Wife says I'm in no danger of growing up anytime in the foreseeable future. There goes my weekend plans!

    Love it, a distinguished reply from a distinguished member. It reminds me of a day when my wife and I were out for a walk. A beautiful woman walked by and i turned to watch her. The I said to my wife I might have to fins one like her. The wife said I had better get more life insurance. I asked whether that meant she might kill me. She said no, but I i ever tangled with a woman like her I would probably die from the heart attack. We continued our walk.

    No reason to try but bet it would not take much to make it shut up and shut down.
    Yes Taurus really does suck. But in fairness they sure turned it around fast on warranty repair. Time will tell
