*****WATTYS 2015 WINNER!*****


In the end, the robots win. 

But you already knew that.

"Everyone Died + My iPhone Stopped Working" is a collection of short interviews with some of the survivors. People who have tremendous insight into the rise of Artificially Intelligent machines or, more often, don't.

Why did the robots rise up? What did they want? Why couldn't they be stopped? Can they be stopped now? Is humanity doomed? And what the f--k is going on with the squirrels?

You will get the answers to all of these questions. Or some of these questions. Or none of these questions. We'll see.

I will be updating this once a week until I run out of stuff that I find funny. Then I'm done.

Is it possible that Lucas knows how to pick a lock (without googling it)?

"if we don't know what intelligence is, it begs the question, What is Artificial Intelligence?" - what I thought during every class of my cognitive science degree, throughout hours-long discussions of AI that got nowhere because no one has defined intelligence :|

Crazy that I read this book in 2015 and now in reality it's nearing the date the apocalypse took place in this book

Anyone who slams Gwenyth Paltrow in the first chapter of their book is a literary genius. Hats off to you.
                              Also, you know she left Chris Martin?
                              Like, what the hell lady?
