What may be the world's first cybernetic hate crime unfolds in French McDonald's
...Good job guys
I misread the title as an actual cyborg assaulting someone. (Then I read the article, and felt stupid)
Well, technically, the dude is part machine, so the name cyborg can be applied.
Also, there's people calling the dude a deception in the comments.
That's got to be the dumbest thing I've read in a really long time. Those employees should be fired not only for their crime but for their astounding, monumental, sheer stupidity.
I cant understand why they wanted him out in the first place. Because the "eye" was seen as a recording camera? Do they try to get people to remove their glasses? Do they kick anyone out with a smartphone? It's very confusing, especially given a mcdonald's is essentially a public space.
Well...certainly an overreaction. Suspicion and questioning, yes (that sort of eyepiece does look scary at first, and somewhat spy-ish, though why anyone would spy on a McDonalds is beyond me), but given appropriate documentation, there shouldn't have been that much of an event. I wonder if it hurt when they tried to rip it off his face...
*insert Movie Prime reference here*
Meh. I went into a french McDonalds once (near the Champs Elysees, actually a few streets away), and the food wasn't that great, so it's of no great importance to me. Actually, i don't remember it being any different to any other McDonalds...except being more expensive due to location. Suffice to say that's another reason not to go back (even if i had the money for a trip to Paris...).
I wonder if they ever saw someone with a fake limb they'd try and rip it off. What a bunch of cowards, ganging up on one man.
I didn't catch it, was he in McDonalds?
quoting you because I agree with you 100%
and, I really like when folks use several words at once just to call someone stupid.
The world of Ghost in the Shell continues to become a reality...
I'm lovin' it... being assaulted by McDonalds staff, that is...
I thought this was an attackign cyborg as well.
This is rediculous they should all be fired,fined, and arrested.
McDonalds should may him millions in pain and suffering, especially since this also happend in front of his family.
I mean I know when you see someone with something out of place or odd in public it will catch your eye and take a second to process, from odd hair to something liek this, it's just human nature.
But this is rediculous that the burger flippers thought they had the right to physically remove someone.
Next thing we know they will be pitchforking and torchin up people wearing bluetooth and ipods.
I'm can see them assaulting a blind person with cane and claim they thought the stick was a weapon and the sunglasses were cyborg goggles.
I honestly don't even understand why a grown man with a special medical condition should even have to have a letter to tell random people what his medical condition is that's rediculous if anyhting it's a privacy violation to have to show someone something like that.
Yep. In France. Where the Big Mac is a Royale with cheese.
Anyway, this is just stupid. I can't help wondering if there was banjo music being played while they yelled "Well looky here boys, we dun' got us a robort! Let's take 'im apart and see what makes 'im tick!"
Apparently they have rednecks in every country
I will wait for Skynet
No wonder the machines enslaved us, we suck.
Nah, we're pretty great. People who develop and support useful cybernetic advancements become professors who can afford to take their families on vacations overseas, and the pricks and luddites end up working at mcdonalds.
So was this voluntary implantation of the technology or was this something that was developed and he volunteered for after an eye accident?
You mean did he have a working eye there beforehand? I'm pretty sure this is meant to augment his existing vision, not replace it. He's been experimenting with the technology for decades and it's a focus (pardon the pun) of his engineering research.
edit: Technically the first cyborg assault was bullying the kid with glasses or shoving some guy in ancient china who carried an abbacus with him.
Me too. I was silently cheering for B1-66ER in my head.
I overlooked that this was in France and read the article as if this happened in the US. I couldn't believe this would happen here, even in the worst neighborhood. But after going back, reading it was in France, it didn't surprise me as much.
