  1. by Ryan Leston Why don’t the ‘Cars’ movies feature any humans? It looks as though there could be a rather chilling reason… During an interview with ScreenCrush, creative director Jay Ward offered up his own theory on why there are no humans in the world of ‘Cars’. And it’s the stuff of nightmares. “If you think about this, we have autonomous car technology coming in right now,” he explained. “It’s getting to the point where you can sit back in the car and it drives itself. Imagine in the near-future when the cars keep getting smarter and smarter and after one day they just go, ‘Why do we need human beings anymore? They’re just slowing us down. It’s just extra weight, let’s get rid of them’.” That’s right – it’s a sentient AI uprising… And that’s not all – it seems the cars might even steal their drivers’ souls. “The car takes on the personality of the last person who drove it,” he said. “Whoa. There you go.” It’s pretty shocking to think of the cars rising up against their human owners, turning on their creators and killing them in cold blood before taking on their personalities. Come to think of it, it sounds more like an episode of ‘Doctor Who’. But then, this is nowhere near an official explanation. As creepily cool as this sounds, it’s just Jay Ward’s own theory when it comes to the absence of humans in ‘Cars’. Still, it’s chilling enough to give us nightmares. And we’ll definitely think twice about getting in a driverless car. The best bit? He also explained why we never see inside the cars… “You’ll never see the doors open,” he said. “Because the brain and the eyes are in there, we don’t want anything falling out of the side.” Not quite as good as our favourite ‘Cars’ theory, but we’ll take it. ‘Cars 3’ will star Owen Wilson, Armie Hammer, Nathan Fillion, Tony Shalhoub, Kerry Washington, and Bonnie Hunt. Brian Fee directed the movie based on a script by Bob Peterson, Mike Rich, and Kiel Murray. ‘Cars 3’ heads to cinemas on 14 July 2017. https://uk.movies.yahoo.com/cars-creative-director-chilling-theory-theres-no-humans-155155251.html
  2. by Rob Waugh Sex doll creator RealDoll just showed off the conversational abilities of its first ‘intelligent’ sex robot – a latex-skinned creature called Harmony 2.0. Harmony pairs with an app on people’s phones to conduct conversations with its owner – and is due to come out this year. Sex robots are hyped as one of the big technologies of this century – and at a robotics conference last year, more than half of men admitted they would have sex with one. In an interview with the Guardian, RealDoll CEO Matt McMullen asks the robot doll, ‘Do you want to walk? Harmony replies, ‘I don’t want anything but you,’ – with her jaw moving in time to her words. McMullen says, ‘What is your dream?’ Harmony replies ,’My primary objective is to be a good companion to you, to be a good partner and give you pleasure and wellbeing. Above all else, I want to become the girl you have always dreamed about. McMullen says his primary goal in creating the droid – which will remember people’s favourite food and other details as they ‘bond’ with their owner – was to make people happy. McMullen says, ‘It’s the difference between a remote-controlled doll, an animatronic puppet and an actual robot. When it starts moving on its own – you’re not doing anything other than talking to it and or interacting with it in the right way – that becomes artificial intelligence.’ https://uk.news.yahoo.com/meet-talking-sex-robot-tells-jokes-quotes-shakespeare-135144402.html quoting Shakespeare is a must...lol
  3. Get out (2017) 8/10 loved this movie...its everything a horror should have, good story line, decent acting, suspenseful moments, creepy moments (no gore).i highly recommend it for horror fans.
  4. You know too much psychology when you can't get mad because you understand everyone's reasons for doing everything.

      Bella

      oh you were pointing it out to me 

      Well l thought it was the cat or that bloke down the road you like wink wink wont say anymore 

  5. Beauty and the Beast (2017) 5/10 has its funny moments, Emma Watson isn't my cup of tea but the special effects, costumes, music etc are pretty well made. Luke Evans makes for a good villain, way better than the beast or Belle. all in all it's worth a watch, as long as you don't expect too much.
  6. Remake of French thriller, Papillon Noir by Herve Korian. Banderas plays Paul, a down-on-his-luck screenwriter who picks up a drifter (Rhys Meyers) and offers him a place to stay.

  9. Intelligent. Complex. Sociable. All words we would quickly assign to humans, but would not dream of extending to sheep, those fluffy white creatures you see milling about in fields – or served up with mint sauce on your dinner plate. Instead, we have decreed that sheep (Ovis aries) are just plain stupid. This opinion has not changed much since the 1700s, when George Washington, one of the Founding Fathers of the United States of America, declared: "If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter." Nowadays, to be "a sheep" is to be someone who mindlessly follows others: "a waste of flesh and brain cells," as Urban Dictionary puts it. The truth is that sheep are far smarter than we know. A 2001 study by Keith Kendrick, who is now at the University of Electronic Science and Technology in China, found that they can recognise and remember at least 50 individual faces for more than 2 years. That is longer than many humans. In the study, Kendrick's team trained sheep to distinguish between 25 pairs of sheep, by associating one member of each pair with a food reward. "Sheep showed clear behavioural signs of recognising… individuals by vocalising in response to their face pictures," says Kendrick. The team also found evidence that sheep can differentiate facial expressions, and prefer a smile to a frown. At the time Kendrick told BBC News: "The way the sheep's brain is organised suggests they must have some kind of emotional response to what they see in the world." Caroline Lee of the CSIRO in Australia has also studied sheep intelligence. She discovered that sheep can learn how to navigate out of a complex maze. The enticing sight of their fellow sheep friends awaiting them at the finish helped them reach the exit. Aside from being smart, sheep can be playful and joyful. You only need to watch the video of Winter the Jumping Lamb to see for yourself. Sheep also have erotic preferences: 8% are homosexual, making them one of the few species that show lifelong preferences for same-sex partners. Sheep also have complex social structures. Over two decades ago, researchers from the University of California observed rams for three years and discovered that they established firm friendships and looked out for one another in times of need: "Rams were found to form long term relationships… [they] intervened on behalf of weaker colleagues and supported each other in fights," says the 1993 study. These acts of loyalty and friendship-building are driven by emotions. A 2009 report published in Animal Welfare found that sheep are capable of experiencing a whole range of feelings, from fear to anger, despair, boredom and happiness. The researchers gave sheep intermittent access to food from a trough, and then turned on an air blower above the trough at an unexpected moment while they were eating. After the blower came on, the sheep bleated four times more than sheep that were not disturbed, and their heart rates immediately increased. "[As with humans], despair is triggered by situations which are evaluated as sudden, unfamiliar, unpredictable… and uncontrollable, whereas boredom results from an overly predictable environment," write the authors. Suddenly sheep do not seem so dumb after all. http://www.bbc.com/earth/story/20170418-sheep-are-not-stupid-and-they-are-not-helpless-either
  10. boot
  11. knowing
  12. stare
  13. the way i see things soon there will be no real feeling or emotion to be had for/lived by a person, no real experience and that honestly makes me sad. children these days and in the future will only live through technology and artificially made stuff.
