Depressed? Getting there? You NEED This!
Sometimes by the end of the day the totality of the global suckage really gets to ya, and then the next morning you find that while you slept stuff happened that puts a different focus on all that. Yeah, it all sucks, but it does get pretty freaking entertaining.
It's 7 am and isn't this a fun day already?
1) Alien-looking robot to stock convenience store shelves
A great great pic of a great looking robot, just imaging running into it while looking for beer. Its use has plusses and minuses, sure, operated via VR, so there is a remote human employee, but 1 employee could restock multiple locations. They do however alleged a labor shortage - how is that? You can't get covid -19 from a robot unlike a human employee in a crowded store area, and that "employee" needn't commute or travel to the boonies, etc.

2) South Dakota Attorney General finds body of man he killed Hello? Nize headline!
