The Russians Are Coming! The Giant Robot Elder God Army is Coming!

Vladimir "Soulful Gaze" Putin Weighs In on Robots, Sex, [and giant Lovecraftian Horrors, not necessarily in that order]

“Yes, we will use the latest technical devices. Already now they are being stationed, for example, in the southern parts of our country,” Putin said when reporters asked him after the conference whether Russia planned to use “gigantic, humanoid war robots” to defend itself.

Asked to elaborate about what he meant, Putin said: “These are unmanned aerial vehicles. And maybe the time will come for gigantic robots. However, so far we have put our main hope on people — namely border guards,” Putin said, Kommersant reported.

Asked about the possible awakening of the giant mythical octopus Cthulhu, the fourth-most popular question among the more than 150,000 sent to Putin, he said that he believed something more serious was behind the question.

He's right, you know.

Thanks to a fool in the forest for the link.

As long as nobody puts the cryogenically preserved head of Nixon on a 500-foot tall killer robot body. Because that would be really, really bad.

And Cthulhu...well, after this administration I don't think Cthulhu would be so hard to get used to.
