cyborgs in the midst

Back in the day, there was this show that came on Sunday nights called battle Star Galactica. I think they made a remake of it a couple of few years back. On the original episode, there was an alien race of cybernetic units the human species were at war with called Cyborgs. Now these creatures were made of some metallic shit and had a red beam coming from where ones eye would be that moved like an antennae. The also had the head pieces attached to their ears that allowed them to communicate with each other. I mean all cyborgs could communicate with each other al the time.

Now days, it seems as if we are in the age of Battle star Galactica for real and that the Cyborgs incessantly walk and run around us. Every where I look I see folks with these hideous space age devices attached to their ear. I know it is based on Blue tooth technology and enables wireless headset to cell phone communication, but it seem eerie. Sometimes I even wonder if these devices, when not in use, are transmitting subliminal electroencelplagraphic messages that program these individuals continuously. Sometimes I wonder if the folks think that by wearing one makes them cool, when in some eyes they actually look kind of funny.

I don’t own a blue tooth device; my lame ass still put the phone up to my ear in remembrance of actually using a rotating dial t o dial a phone number. And the conversations, seems as if the device makes folks want to talk to show others "look ma, no hands". The one I heard this morning when I was getting a pack of swisher sweets went something like this:


"George, Its Curtis, I'm getting some coffee, wanted to know if you were by to stop by my office, I’m running twenty-five minutes late. So if you want some coffee, call me back."

What that Sam Dickens, A grown man leaving a message for another grown man to get his coffee. Rule number one, never work in an office without a coffee machine.

Unlike the Cyborgs however, these devices are not weaponized. Makes me wonder what would have happened if I had decided to pursue my PHD in one of my first loves, solid state and/or particle physics, what kind of weapon enablization could I have developed. For certain, I would have one back in the lab to experiment with. Now that would have been cool, a device that you can control with your brain to direct lasar beams at others - i can't wait.



ps: Memphis 80-Bradley 64
and my old high schol team Memphis Hamilton finished 39-0 (Tenn state AAA chanps)

"electroencelplagraphic" .

Dr. Stephens, please define. That one sailed right off my bloggage radar. Well, folks look like they are just walking down the road talking to themselves, with these headsets. Even the wired ones that look like a pilot or a receptionist.

This was funny dude. Personally, I'm not into the Bluetooth thang. I still like to hold a phone up to my ear which makes me look like I'm on the phone rather than talking to myself. One time I looked at this dude like "what you say?" thinking he said something to me. I even repeated myself "what!?!" LOL.. And then he pointed to the Bluetooth in his ear...lol.. I'll stick with holding mines...lol..

I agree "what's the point?". After a while we all are going to stop using our hands for everything, even sex, "Oh wait, there is a device for that too!"lol
