Bite me, HLPBB. I'll bump it if I want to. This is vital to the existential security of HARD-LIGHT! *ahem*
Brothers, brothers! Paramatma! A new threat looms.... Nano Quadrotors
Many of us have been following the emergence and refinement of these tiny autonomous aircraft from the frontiers of #hard-light:
[22:46] <achtung> Actually, have you guys seen this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=YQIMGV5vtd4
[22:46] <achtung> I'm amazed, and I want one.
[22:46] <achtung> No, I want twenty.
[22:47] <achtung> Nano Quadrotors
[22:47] <redsniper> it's crazy
[22:48] <@HerraTohtori> swarm
[22:48] <@HerraTohtori> that can not end well...
[22:48] <@HerraTohtori> those things in formation look freaky
[22:48] <redsniper> ffffuuuuuuuuuuu
[22:48] <achtung> Those will be weaponized.
[22:48] <achtung> I just know it.
[22:48] <@HerraTohtori> cyloooons
[22:48] <redsniper> technology is advancing TOO FAST
[22:48] <achtung> Those will fly right into your ****ing window, and boom!
[22:48] <redsniper> we are play gods!
[22:49] <@HerraTohtori> achtung: nevermind that, they will cut your face wide open
[22:49] <redsniper> manhacks!
[22:49] <dsockwell> manhacks?
[22:49] <redsniper> manhacks
[22:49] <dsockwell> hacks mentioned
[22:49] <redsniper> get your crowbars
[22:49] <redsniper> put in some batting practice
[22:50] <dsockwell> oh manhacks
[22:50] <dsockwell> got it
[22:50] <redsniper> manhacks
[22:50] <achtung> manhacks
[22:52] <achtung> You can hear the cameraman giggle when it flips.
[22:54] <SpardaSon21> ****, manhacks
[22:54] <SpardaSon21> don't bother hiding in the sewers
It is readily apparent that these will soon evolve into Combine Manhacks
as seen in the future documentary video game Half-Life 2. Even now we can see how these proto-manhacks are already showing a tendency for melee combat. Below is a photo of a man desperately attempting to fend off a quadrotor swarm. It may be disturbing, but you all need to see this so that you'll know what we're up against.
Our comrade, General Battuta, has recently discovered some shocking new developments on the wilds of the internet: The quadrotors appear to be gaining a sort of swarm intelligence and have been observed creating music.

request hlp threat down update
This is a sign of much more advanced and rapid cultural development than initially predicted. Quadrotors will clearly become a serious threat in the months to come. Make sure you still have your crowbars from the resonance cascade scenario and put in some batting practice. Remain vigilant!
