Why Terminators Suck at Their Jobs

Cracked has re-visited this important issue, which I wrote about here slightly more seriously. Money quote: "Let's put aside all the doubts we've raised thus far and just accept that Skynet is a 'special needs' computer and is doing the best it can with what its got, bless its heart."

Alluding strongly to the Singularity, they add: "...not only did this one-sided war 'span over 30 years,' instead of the more expected 'one really shitty afternoon,' but human beings actually won out in the end."

Get out.

I think that's a more iconic line than I'll Be Back. When Arnie had to stand for re-election a few years ago his opposition missed an opportunity by not using it.

Only Arnie says, "I'll be back."
Other terminators use the "Get out" line.

Get out.
