They Were Even Thoughtful Enough to Include a Chainsaw

As if the LHC wasn't enough to give me the heebie-jeebies, now we're talking about a machine called EATR (eater, get it?) that powers itself across the country-side by 'eating' whatever it needs to fuel itself (ie.-gasoline, kerosene, dead animals, plants, you, me, etc.).

Don't scientists watch movies? Heeeeellllllooooooooo?!? Terminator...? The Matrix...? Any of this ringing a bell?

And to top it off, it comes equipped with a chainsaw. Nice.

Courtesy of your friends at DARPA, of course.
