Top cop predicts robot crimewave

Technology such as cloned part-robot humans used by organised crime gangs pose the greatest future challenge to police, along with online scamming, Australian Federal Police (AFP) Commissioner Mick Keelty says.

"Our environmental scanning tells us that even with some of the cloning of human beings - not necessarily in Australia but in those countries that are going to allow it - you could have potentially a cloned part-person, part-robot," he said.

This situation calls for a hero. Someone with boundless ambition and the might of the international intelligence community. Someone with access to cutting edge technology and the intellectual sophistication to use it for the benefit of humanity.

Yes, the fate of the world rests in the hands of Kal Korff.

Yeah, well, maybe. But I'm still waiting for his first book of nine to be released regarding his final expose of Roswell. He had said the first volume would be released by now, but I don't see any indication of it _actually_ being available, as yet. So he's past that particular deadline.

Tell you what, Mac: when he learns to spell your last name correctly, perhaps _then_ we can contemplate placing the fate of the world in his hands, but not before then.

Hehe, is that artwork from the old Zutons album?

The graphic's from a tongue-in-cheek guide to surviving a robotic apocalypse. Which I really should read, now that I think of it. (It would make a great T-shirt, huh?)
