From the article:

"Dubbed "Rocky" after the cartoon character, the robo-squirrel is working its way into Hampshire's live-squirrel clique, controlled by researchers several yards away with a laptop computer and binoculars.

Sarah Partan, an assistant professor in animal behavior at Hampshire, hopes that by capturing a close-up view of squirrels in nature, Rocky will help her team decode squirrels' communication techniques, social cues and survival instincts."

I just hope that the squirrels haven't built robots of their own wandering around HUMAN societies, decoding OUR social cues, studying OUR weaknesses...

"This story has it all: sex, violence, major household appliances. And it's actually a serious examination of what exactly would happen if three drunk six-inch-high Martians landed on earth, climbed inside a vacuum cleaner bag, and electronically mated with a street bum. Of course, people would eventually go running from their homes, pursued by deranged R2-D2 Hoovers."-Joe Bob on OVERSEXED RUGSUCKERS FROM MARS

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
