Engineering Failures – Part 1

2014/12/30

Unless you’re building a robot to, I don’t know, test motion sickness on amusement park rides, I’m really not too sure why you’d do this either…

I think a better question would be why he programmed your robot dog for nausea too. o_O

Today’s example of questionable coding has been brought to you by Mega Man #43 (January 2015) by Ian Flynn, Powree, and Gary Martin.

And so another year of blogging draws to a close on The Raging Fanboy. A big thank you to all my subscribers, both old and new, for continuing to visit. Please feel free to spread the word and encourage others to visit my little corner of the Internet, as it would be a nice surprise for my blog to experience an increase in traffic for the first time since 2012 by the end of next year. 😦

See you all in 2015! 🙂

Boss, Interrupted

Hey, villains have to do something to pass the time while waiting for the hero to reach their lair.

There's probably a good reason why "passive-aggressive needlework" isn't a popular form of stress relief.

Minion Appreciation

It’s rare to find a villain who values his underlings as much as Flash Man seems to.

Man, Flash Man's taking this pretty hard...

Robosexuality – Part 11

Science will have unleashed hell upon the world when they create romantically oblivious artificial intelligences capable of friendzoning each other.

And that's when Ice Man discovered that the coldest and most barren wasteland isn't in Antarctica. :(

Robosexuality – Part 10

Just because robots don’t engage in sexual reproduction, doesn’t mean that they’re completely ignorant about the process.

Talk about a whole new kind of baby boom.

The Philosophy of Mega Man

2012/06/18

I don’t normally use my blog to plug titles that I’m fond of, but if you have a comic book that deals with the ethics of creating weapons of war for personal gain…



…the moral dilemmas that come with creating sentient artificial intelligences…






…and anti-technology terrorists making bomb threats and discussing the danger of giving robots free will…


…and this comic book is not only aimed at children but also based on a 25-year-old video game, then you know you have something special and worth reading.

Seriously, go out and pick up a copy of the new Mega Man series by Archie Comic Publications. It’s the first title I’ve seen in a long time where the writer is as just as much of a fan of the characters as the readers are.

Not-So-Secret Hideout

Subtlety, thy name isn’t Albert W. Wily.

I kind of miss the classic “Dr. W”, personally.

Robosexuality – Part 9

When you start using blanket terms to refer to your and your colleagues’ biological offspring and robotic constructs like Dr. Noele LaLinde here, that’s a pretty good sign you need to get out of the lab more often.

Now that’s a discussion about the birds and the bees I’d like front seats to.
