Deplorable B Woodman Mar 05 2018 at 12:26 am Some are born to manners, some learn manners, others have manners thrust upon them. Meantime, “unleash the hounds of war!” Go get them FIBbies! No quarter asked nor given! Deplorable B Woodman Mar 05 2018 at 12:32 am No more Wacos! If the FIBbies have a warrant, if they want to speak to anyone at the DD, come and knock on the front door during normal daytime hours. No more sneak attacks in the quiet of the night while prepping for bed. Deplorable B Woodman Mar 05 2018 at 12:33 am BTW, is it “to the manner born”? Or is it “to the manor born”? JTC Mar 05 2018 at 12:58 am Yes. And with entirely different meaning. And from our host’s coinage, we can infer a third. Dude does slip some shit in. gruundehn Mar 05 2018 at 3:09 pm The original saying was “manor” but the times have added the other meaning, and word, so that either is correct. JTC Mar 05 2018 at 3:55 pm I do enjoy words, meanings, and usages. And actually my understanding of the term as coined by Shakespeare’s Hamlet was “manner”, meaning a particular set of responsibilities, behaviors, or traditions to follow…much later and now much more prevalent applied as “manor”, born to aristocracy, wealth, or privilege. But I particularly like Chris’ addition of the “s” to create an entirely new meaning of being bred, taught, or in this case created to be proper, formal, or like Jeeves here, obsequious. JTC Mar 05 2018 at 12:36 am I’ll take my ‘borgs efficient, *can the “manners”. *as in tin-can, you pretentious wannabe elitist. Plenty of that glad-handing back-stabbing PC BS in meatspace. WayneM Mar 05 2018 at 12:37 am If I’m reading this correctly, R200 is more closely integrated to DDNet’s sensor array than Jeeves who is local? Given the latency inherent in networks, that’s a design flaw. cmblake6 Mar 05 2018 at 1:45 am Mission first. John T. Block Mar 05 2018 at 1:55 am Where are the Dawgs at? Seems they’d be programmed to see Feds as well as illegals… Fox2! Mar 05 2018 at 2:22 am Why does Jeeves remind me of a certain golden ‘droid? Henry Mar 05 2018 at 4:26 am Um, shouldn’t that be “molto bella?” JackDeth 72 Mar 05 2018 at 5:22 am Wait… What? Jeeves is showing signs of The Seven Deadly Sins (Envy) through naughty language? Currently calculating the odds of an open corral gate and Tobasco joining the party. Bill G Mar 05 2018 at 7:04 am Instead of noblesse oblige, we’ve got robot oblige? KenH Mar 05 2018 at 11:37 am The Arnie-droid is correct I want an 800 Series Model 101 NOT frappin 3Po…. GruntGI Mar 05 2018 at 12:58 pm Well, I’m pretty sure Zed is not gonna be happy his boob tube show got interrupted. Sending the robodogs to investigate may be the most humane way to deal with the intruders. MasterDiver Mar 05 2018 at 2:49 pm Dealing with FIBbers? I got yer “humane ways” right heerrre! Zar Belk! Deplorable B Woodman Mar 05 2018 at 9:23 pm Three thumbs up! And I have only two hands! lurking Mar 06 2018 at 12:20 am Prob is, it would take two dogs to EFFECTIVELY insert the probe. One to pin him down, the other to do the nasty. With a hominid form, and hands, it’s just a matter of hydraulics.
