And people wonder why quality control in factories have suffered in recent years.

Theory: The Big D's ultimate goal is that of control, and he uses the sex market as a means of financing this factory. I mean, there's no way he actually makes money off of this, unless Sam's the one buying them and D's the one controlling them. Endgame is that his technological system of control becomes so complete that he no longer needs to use Uncle Sam or the prostitutes.

Okay, maybe I was wasting time speculating about Big D's motives when his factory is doing something this dumb dumb dumb dumb.

It should be pretty evident why this drone is a dumb idea, if you have even the basic concepts of negative reinforcement in psychology or even basic engineering.
By causing people to associate drones with overt violence and danger, you're training them to be vigilant and watchful against the very robot design largely intended for subterfuge and surveillance.

Dumb.

valid, although I don't think the intent here was to portray Big D as being so incompetent





RE: Thermometers: meh.

Hm. Bully drones must be for a niche market.

RE Thermometers:
Nurse: "Doctor, why is there a thermometer behind your ear?"
Doctor: "...oh Goddammit, some asshole has my pen!"

The fact that there exist a snopes article for that is the sort of thing that makes me lose faith in humanity. IT's right up there with the fact that frozen pizzas have labels that read "WARNING: COOK BEFORE EATING"

Go ahead and check if you don't believe me.

it wouldn't even be that bad of a job if it were true -- I'd prefer it to flipping burgers, anyway

besides making no sense as a means of quality insurance, it doesn't even work for me as a joke

I wonder how much longer it's going to take, if any time at all, before Squig regrets taking this job...
