Coming Soon

Question authority. And hyperbole, don't forget to question hyperbole.

Oh, and if you're using a newer version of the Firefox browser, let me know if you see a custom "favicon" - that's the little pic at the left end of the web address. If you're using IE you most likely won't see anything unusual (sorry).

(favicon update) Using IE6? - Add this site to your Favorites. The browser puts the nifty little icon next to the site name in Favorites, and shows it in the address line. You can then delete it from Favorites (you're free to keep it of course); the little pic should still show in the address line. Yee ha.

Firefox users, pat yourselves on the back and enjoy your hassle-free eye candy.

Well. Hm. I must say I'm a bit dazed right now, having suffered a massive intellectual stroke thanks to that completely inconceivably idiotic article (this is, by no means, a jab at you, no worries). Once I get over the fact that my IQ is now akin to that of a rock, perhaps I will be able to comment.

Okay. It's all good.

Now, are these jockeys really "robots"? Because as far as I can tell, judging from the article content (or the lack thereof) and pictures, it seems like these are simply humanoid structures sitting sessile on oppressed beasts of burden. It's not as though they yell commands or whip the animals themselves. You might as well put a cardboard box with a mouth and eyes on a camel and proclaim. "Look I invented a robotic jockey!" The fact of the matter is that the camel racing circut can now use a constant standard for racing. They just happened to use "robots" because it looked cool and made them sound novel. Now that I think of it, they COULD have used cardboard boxes, as long as everyone did, but then you would get into allegations of fiberglass-cardboard mixing and nano-fiber useage, among other illegal methods. It would be a mess! A cardboard mess!

Amber - thanks, you're one of a select few.
Demosthenes - In the now-deleted comment I suggested the robots might be functional. Did some searching and sure enough, found they exceed the capability of most cardboard boxes: "even whipping the camel." Check out this link for a more detailed story.

I'm so over it. Dubai is going to rule the world anyway.
