  1. Imagine a program like in the first resident evil movie that could control things that are up online (like these hackers but A.I.). Now imagine all cars and other electronics, including airplanes, elevators, etc. were moving in the direction of this car. If that sonofabitch A.I. program wanted to destroy humans, it could certainly take a good portion out in an instant. Imagine if the A.I. also had some faction of humans that helped it because they wanted to wipe out humanity (maybe crazy environmentalists lulz) so they attached Gatling guns to these drones (like bioschock) that are being commercialized. Anybody want to hit this blunt bruh?
