BBC News: Final Skynet satellite launched

Recommended Posts


Seeing as it's Skynet 5 replacing Skynet 4 I'd imagine we've been using it since before the Terminator films came out. I wonder if MoD has thought about a breach of trademark.....

 

Just checked, Skynet 1 launched at the end of 1969.

2012 is the next Roland Emmerich movie, due out in a couple of years. Yes, it's about the end of the world. Again. Because one director can't make a film with that plot too many times.

Althoug it's actually interesting that the Mayans never said that that date is the end of the world, they just said that a great change will happen.

Do you think Ayn Rand, who wrote "Anthem", better known when played by RUSH 2112, which speaks of finding ancient artifacts from their human past, is 100 Years away from the end of the Mayan Calendar?

Or make a decent EMP gun so we can cut through the machines like a hot knife through butter?

 

 

And to protect us from those DAMN DIRTY APES!

Last I checked, humans couldn't even feel EMP, doubt our feces flinging relatives would feel it either. Good ole' guns would do the trick just fine.

 

No, the way it worked for the Mayans was the world had been created and destroyed 5 times, 2012 the world was supposed to be destroyed for the final time. But I think their numerical system was in base 5, so the number may be off. :good:

Well, at least we already know now what we'll be up against - and according to canon, John Connor will not lead the humans to victory, since the war isn't over after he's dead...

Actually now 2012 is getting close a lot of the groups and people who have been yaking on about it, are starting to say we may have got the calendar confused and it may actually be 2024 instead. They don't say however if they mean our calender or the mayan one - which gives them some room to wriggle out of it when we get close to 2024...
