When I was a sarge in the 13th batallion of Alpine troups we had mules to do that... they worked well and they were a lot cheaper.  Not to mention the occasional kick in the butt of officers that makes us laugh more.

I was watching this the other day. These used to be called Big Dog and Alpha Dog, I think.

This new one is a lot better. It can follow voice commands and is a lot quieter. The old one sounded like a very old lawn mower with the blade chewing up gravel.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

Now all they needeth do is dress it as a cow and put a bomb inside it.

Jesus Christ - Matthew 28:18-20 said:

"All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
