The question remains....
Who let the dogs out?

With the recent lay-offs at NPR, they've replaced news reporters with text to speech programs that read tweets from the Internet.

I love text-to-speech renditions of the current weather forecast. So soothing.


/lots of dogs

I knew that had a problem with packs of something else roaming the streets...

The History Channel was on this a while back.

But one of the reasons to be armed if on foot in a blighted area. Notice some of the guys doing the research stuff were. Seems perfectly reasonable to me. Pack of dogs is a legit safety concern. They just also seem to be where some of the (uh) shadier(?) characters might be.

No way for that to not sound racist, but that was not the intention, I assure you.

Fun fact: NPR has never existed, as such. It's merely the unexpected result of an experiment that involved hooking a stochastic signal generator up to a disused Soviet numbers station transmitter.

put a hunting season on them.   Hell, Michigan hunters would shoot their own dogs if there was a season.

Lions have been known to hunt dogs. I'd say we buy maybe 30-40 lions, gather them together in groups of 5 or 6 per pack and release them on the streets at various locations around Detroit.

Study it out.

The funniest episode of Dave Atell's "Insomniac" I saw was when he tagged along with state workers in New Orleans shooting Nutria from the back of a pick up truck.

Just sayin.

Worst part being, they're probably very big, sturdy dogs like Pit Bulls or American Boxers, and they're kinda trouble if left to their own devices.

I used to live in a crappy adjunct to Baltimore, and there was kinda a culture of "Ghetto Alarm System dogs." as in get the biggest, meanest dog available to protect your house. In my experience, with a good owner who loves them and treats them right, they're complete creampuffs who would sooner slobber a robber to death than bite them.

But then you have to see how many people treat them right. Not many do, and a lot of dogs end up really badly messed up by short chains, no attention and harsh-weather exposure. Basically, inattention.

The worst I ever experienced was from a much loved pup who happened to weigh almost 100 pounds. He was very glad to see me after I visited a friend after a long absence.... "Oh Boy! Uncle Max! I love you so much!" and then his paw went up under my shirt as he jumped on me, and he ripped me from nipple to hip. Wasn't his fault, it was done in love, but damn... I'm a big guy... And he was the atomic bomb of dogs. Not the sort of thing you want breeding wild.

It would certainly make rush hour more entertaining.  Imagine packs of school kids running to evade packs of lions.  Kind of a mix between Hunger Games, Lord of the Flies, and Jurassic Park.

This is the outcome of government mind control drugs spread via chemtrails that make construction workers travel 120 years back in time and hallucinate, losing their ability to create right angles, while building stately homes.

Theoretically speaking, can these roving dogs be put on buns?

With mustard, I mean. Only a heathen would put ketchup on a dog.

You seem to be confused. Lions in Michigan have a track record of losing horribly.

I would say it's more the outcome of massive amounts of government corruption and mismanagement of public funds leading to a breakdown in law and order from police cutbacks, followed by everyone with the means running for it. What's the point of running a business or living in Detroit if the police won't come if you're being attacked or your property is being destroyed? No people with money paying taxes, no public funds, down the vicious circle we go.

I'd say it was the same result you'd expect of any location that was basically a one job town.  Detroit was dependent upon the auto industry.  That died, taking with it all the jobs.  The government corruption was always there, but not so obvious.  When the money dried up, it became obvious because what little cash was left was sucked up the corrupt assholes running that shiat hole.

In the first minute of the video, there are three different voices, none of which sound like a text-to-speech program to me.  Just people speaking English clearly.  Maybe subby isn't used to hearing that?
