F-35B Delayed after fourth prototype had to be destroyed

>>>Full story here<<<

Very shocking news.

THE PENTAGON — The military’s problematic F-35 fighter jet is facing more delays related to “software issues,”
According to Air Force Lt. Gen. Christopher Bogdan, who heads the Pentagon’s F-35 program, the delay comes at a critical time in the Joint Strike Fighter’s development cycle, but “shouldn’t take more than a few billion dollars” to address.

Very shocking indeed.

I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for my signature, I can tell you I don't have one. But what I do have are a very particular lack of skills, skills I have imagined having over a very long career. Skills that make me are completely useless in any situation. If you stop reading now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't stop reading, I will look for you, I will probably not find you, and I will kill your refrigerator.

"We had to keep it on a tether after it snuck off one day. We found it three hours later, just hovering in a meadow in Fairfax, Virginia, watching bees pollinate flowers. Damned thing wanted to be a bee, too....We started implementing long, circular lines of code and unsolvable equations in an effort to keep them from ‘thinking.."
:shock:
okay....
So now they can program robots to think?
