That is ok, a company I used to work for was intentionally acronym-ed: BAD.
At least they're honest about it. :P

I have apparently been invited to join a Steam group calling itself  "bitches 'n' glory".  ???

I could have gone my whole life without knowing that "tracheal secretions" were a thing that could "shoot across the room".

Also, a bat got stuck in the hallway outside the pharmacy today. It was pretty adorable, but I have to wonder how the heck it got in.

These are, by the way, completely unrelated.

In the days when Sussman was a novice, Minsky once came to him as he sat hacking at the PDP-6.
“What are you doing?”, asked Minsky. “I am training a randomly wired neural net to play Tic-Tac-Toe” Sussman replied. “Why is the net wired randomly?”, asked Minsky. “I do not want it to have any preconceptions of how to play”, Sussman said.
Minsky then shut his eyes. “Why do you close your eyes?”, Sussman asked his teacher.
“So that the room will be empty.”
At that moment, Sussman was enlightened.

I remember seeing a satellite tracker thing for physics last year  and one of the military satellites was called Skynet.

What could go wrong? :P

So in other words, ranging from catastrophic to mildly annoying. Good to know, but I don't think I'll be losing any sleep over it.

Almost as fun:  there is a company that plainly named itself Satellite Tracking of People.  I've processed a few shipments of theirs through customs.  I totally flipped out the first time I saw it.

...

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Who would name their company that?

WHO?

MORE IMPORTANTLY, WHY?

Lets see, we're building a lazer which we're hoping is going to rip holes in the universe, building large balloon chutes to spew volcanic gases in the air and we have Skynet.

UK science seems sooooo not apocalypse orientated...

If your not suppose to trust anyone, then that means you shouldn't trust an online fortune teller.

That's terrible advice. Ignore it.

By the way, how would like to own a bridge? I've got one, real cheap.
