So does this mean we’re gonna have to use mushrooms to go on the internet?
May the Lord be with you as He is with me.
The fungi-based computers must be referring to the case. You certainly can’t use organic material for either semiconductors or wires.
Wherever that one computer scientist is, they seem not like a fun guy.
1.2 billion insects probably have roughly the same mass as a human body.
In the jungle, there’s a Soccer match between the Elephants and the Insects. By half-time the Elephants are completely dominating the insects with a score of 36 – 0.
At the start of the 2nd half the Millipede came on for the insects and he was the best player in the whole of the jungle! When the final whistle blew it was 37 – 36 to the insects!!
After the game the Elephant manager stomped up the insect manager and said “That millipede truly is the greatest player but why didn’t you bring him on at the start of the game?”
The Insect manager replied “Well it takes him 45 minutes to put his boots on!”
A salesman was traveling through the country side, selling insect repellent.
He came to a farmhouse and tried his pitch on the farmer. “Sir, my bug spray is so good you will never be bitten again. I guarantee it.”
The farmer was dubious. “Young man, I’ll make you a proposition. I’ll tie you out in my cornfield covered with that bug spray, and nothing else. If there is not a single bite on you come morning, I’ll buy a whole case from you. And I’ll get everyone else in the county to buy a case. We will make you rich.”
The salesman was delighted. They went to the field and he stripped. The farmer sprayed him thoroughly with the bug spray and tied him to a stake.
Back to the house went the farmer. The next morning, the farmer and his family trooped out to the cornfield. Sure enough, the salesman was there, hanging in his bonds, not a single bite on him.
Yet he was a total wreck!
Pale, ghastly, haggard, and drawn, but not one bite on him.
The farmer was perplexed. “Son,” he said, “Now, you don’t have a bite on you but you look like Hades! What the devil happened?”
The salesman looked up through bloodshot eyes and croaked “Doesn’t that calf have a mother?”
Until next time.
No wonder it’s so hard to sell insects.
Take care, may famed adventurer Sinbad “They Only Counted Seven Of My Voyages And The Eighth Was The One Where I Had To Defeat Cedric The Entertainer” The Sailord be with you, and gesundheit.
Plenty of food to go around. Maybe that’s why the WEF plan is for us to be eating bugs. My plan is to thwart their plan.
It would have been nice if they had named the prehistoric elephant like creatures that may have inspired the idea of a cyclops. Guess they were tired of giving easy information for searching for more detailed information.
I’m working on a unicorn-powered automobile. People keep saying my odds of success are slim, but I’m still trying.
so these fungi based computers, is it like making them out of a natural plastic substitute made from fungi or are they actually using the mycelium to form networks and circuits and stuff?
Does this mean we’re fighting a losing battle against bugs?
Don’t worry about Cyclops—-it’s easy to attack them from behind.
Everybody knows cyclopses will throw giant boulders at your ship if you sail anywhere near Greece
You can have my insects
That’s a lot of bugs, but there are more IRS agents now
Sitting in front of a computer all day turns people into fungi!!
Imagine hypothesizing what this animal looked like.
Wow. The fungi computer is fascinating. Even given my very limited knowledge of fungi and computer, it sounds like an intriguing idea to mimic the complexity and adaptability of mycelium networks for computing, especially where AI is concerned.
I live in SW Georgia, I feel that there is at least a million gnats per person, not to mention all the other creeders! So I think your 1.2 billion should be 1.3 Billion!
1.2 billion insects just for me? Gee, thanks.
Most of those insects are in Georgia, USA.
I would like request that my 1.2 billion insects not include any stinging, biting or blood sucking critters. Just insects with value as fish bait.
That Cyclops looks more like a one-eyed, big-headed doofus vampire. Probably had bad breath, too! ;-p
The artist depicted what looks to be a spider which is an arachnid, not an insect. BION.
A Magician got a gig on a cruise ship.The captain had a parrot that always sat on his shoulder.
After the third night the parrot started catching onto the magicians tricks, and would call out it’s up his sleeve, his assistant has it.
That night they hit an iceberg, all died except the magician and the parrot.
They floated on a door staring at each other for four days, when the parrot says, "Okay, I give. Where’s the Boat?
