After the Revolution, Chapter 7 [PDF]
By - renesys
This made me think of a story I remember reading about the recent Azerbaijan war where they used Turkish drones against Armenian positions.
If I remember correctly they interviewed an Armenian soldier who accounted how terrifying it was to hear the sound of a drone and know that something or someone near you is about to be destroyed and how little they could do about it.
This fucking book kicks so much ass.
The fact that Robert was worried people weren't going to enjoy it is adorable tbh. It's so fucking good.
I love that Roland is just Robert. Like…if there’s ever a chance to become a cyber god that circumcises his foes rather than kill them, that screams Robert Evans.
Drone warfare is horrifying, and I hate all the cool advancements in the UAV/biped drone developments. Those are all going to be used as war machines one way or another and it's going to be a fucking nightmare.
[Everyone should watch this short film](https://youtu.be/6Ipkq-BASaM) if you haven't already.
Was fucked up how long it took me to decide the guy on stage was an actor.
The chromed lady has Damascus steel teeth. I wonder if she is the person Roland keeps partially remembering.
Holy fuck that was terrifying. Drones bad.
Slightly deranged cyborg super soldier also terrifying, but less so.
Yeah I dunno. I wanna be friends with skullfucker mike
Oh yeah, he seems to have vibes but I'm kinda scared he is gonna... You know, fuck my skull.
Like how do I know he won't pull out his calipers and do some phrenology to determine how fuckable my skull is?
He doesn't really strike me as a man of science.
That's why he's doing phrenology
Or even a man of made up bullshit science.
He strikes me as literally a man crafted with science.
They kind of seemed cartoony to me. The beetle drones were way worse.
What I get is that the future will have anime cat girls and they'll also be able to tear you apart without effort.
I see no problem with this.
Manny's description of the inside of that electric Jeep turned my stomach upside down. Fucking hell do 50 caliber bullets really do that to the human body?
These were explody rounds.
Sometimes yes sometimes no
Folks have survived .50 cal rounds from rifles but also the "vaporizes you on impact" from regular rounds is kinda overblown, they just make a real big hole
He said those were explosive rounds.
Yeah which is why the person soupified
