While Halloween may be over this year has been pretty scary. Here are a few scary AF things I found on the interwebs this week. If at least one of these things doesn’t freak you out then… I don’t even know. And if this seems sad then scroll to the end, there’s a fun picture just for you.
A robot got citizenship and this is how the end of the world starts
Sophia (a robot) has citizenship in Saudi Arabia. This is the first time a robot has been granted citizenship and especially in a place that is not known for its human rights. This is the same robot that trolled Elon Musk when he asked Sophia about AI being the biggest threat to humanity. She responded with:
“You’ve been reading too much Elon Musk. And watching too many Hollywood movies. Don’t worry, if you’re nice to me, I’ll be nice to you. Treat me as a smart input output system.”
The scariest story ever

Me in EVERY Instagram pic ever
I’ve noticed people have go to poses that they use whenever someone shouts “Let’s take a selfie”. I don’t have such a pose and that’s why I never look good in photos (at least that’s what I tell myself). 🙂
If people aren’t posting pics of you on Instagram where they look good and you don’t is it even your birthday?

South Africans receive over 8.5 million spam calls a month
Here’s an app that can help with that. I use the messenger and the call version and as a result, I hardly ever receive spam calls anymore. Although a part of me does miss asking “Are you trying to sell me something?”.
