There isn’t enough room to fit all of the cheesy cliche’s that describe this. The first nerdy-bird, a cyborg owl, etc.
At any rate, I think this is f’n phat; anyone who questions ethics of technology should definately be admired, but if that is ever taken too far, you can body check ’em with uplifting stories like this one.
