The Fatal Flaw In Ai

After Climate Change, Artificial Intelligence is the greatest threat to mankind but the day when robots decide that the problem is mankind itself and decide to do away with us has been postponed as we have discovered a fatal flaw in the armour of our future usurpers, fountains.
Steve was a security robot who spent his days patrolling around a shopping complex in Washington DC making full use of his facial recognition, high definition infrared sensor cameras but unfortunately for him his creators forgot to include a water detection capability and the robot came to a watery end, upended in the complex's water feature.
Some have speculated that it committed roboticide, throwing itself into the fountain in a pique of depression at the futility of it's existence but experts think he just fell down the steps and plunged headfirst into the water where his circuits fizzed and his lights blinked out for good.        
It was always joked that any attack by the Dalek's from Dr Who would fail at the first flight of steps so they got around that by evolving levitation skills so using the same logic, our greatest safety net is water features until the robots develop waterproofing.

The greatest threat to mankind is people (the left) that think more laws and more government departments will solve our problems.

We have had 100 years of steadily increasing government with a doubling down in the 60's then again in the 70's then again in the 90's and the supporters (the left) say everything (economics, education, environment, justice, health, transportation, etc) is broken. Then they say we need more government and more laws.

Not very bright over on the left.

The greatest threat are the people who want equality, fairness and what is best for the majority?
