    Wait, didn't Microsoft have a chatbot AI a few years back that turned horribly racist and genocidal in under 24 hours of going live?

    One of the world's largest, and oldest, travel agencies in England has shut down as of last night causing 21,000 employees to lose their jobs and stranding almost 600,000 travelers globally with no notice.

    The UK Government is scrambling to get its residents home.

    Trump administration to small businesses, especially family farmers:

    "Go fu** yourselves."

    Sonny Perdue, President Donald Trump's agriculture secretary, said Tuesday during a stop in Wisconsin that he doesn't know if the family dairy farm can survive as the industry moves toward a factory farm model.

    "In America, the big get bigger and the small go out," Perdue said after an appearance at the World Dairy Expo in Madison. "I don't think in America we, for any small business, we have a guaranteed income or guaranteed profitability."

    Unless you're a soybean farmer getting killed by Dump's tariffs, or the world's largest automaker, or one of the world's biggest banks. Then socialism is OK.

    So, text messages show Boeing knew of “egregious problems” with the 737 Max’s issues.

    Jail time. It’s the only way they’ll learn. Murder 1, depraved indifference.

    I can't agree more.

    They'll railroad some poor engineer. None of the Trust Fund Tycoons are ever going to jail.

    That’s why I backup every critical decision I make. Everything is backed up electronically and on paper if necessary. If I ever had a decision that management overrode, I haven’t yet, I would have several backups and make my voice understood that I disagree.

    This is a CYA-first world.
