  • A Colorado Man Used a Stuffed Owl Named "Solomon" as His Defense Attorney. It Was Not a Hoot.

    05/24/2015 1:23:55 AM PDT · by Slings and Arrows · 33 replies
    I'm no legal expert, but something tells me this isn't exactly a great move for your case. From Arbroath: Charles Abbott arrived at court in Aspen, Colorado, on Tuesday with a stuffed owl and placed it on the defence table in front of him. “He’s a very sensitive guy, has law degrees from Yale, Harvard and Stanford,” Abbott told Pitkin County Court Judge Erin Fernandez-Ely. “I think he’ll be able to represent me before a public defender comes online.” But the fluffy horned owl that Abbott called “Solomon,” had no influence on the hearing’s outcome. Fernandez-Ely casually ignored its presence...

    GOUVERNEUR, N.Y. -- Nine brains inexplicably appeared earlier this week along a street in a St. Lawrence County village. How the brains got there and where they came from remains a mystery. Residents discovered the brains on Beckwith Street near railroad tracks and called the police. Gouverneur police collected one of the brains and brought it to a local veterinarian for an examination, WWNY TV 7 reported. The veterinarian determined the brain had been professionally removed -- likely from a dog -- and preserved in formaldehyde. The veterinarian told North Country Now that the brain was consistent with a beagle-sized...

First, robotics companies are already working toward designing robots that can move like humans and respond to humans with facial expressions. Second, there are several...
