Aircraft Carriers Now Run By Texting

Well, I bet you didn't see this coming.

Radio commercials for ARINC are boasting that all the functions aboard an aircraft carrier can be performed using texting technology, including navigation, avionics, and the ability to maneuver and land military and commercial air, land, and sea craft.

Do we really want to have some n00b with an itchy thumb on billions of dollars worth of military equipment with lives hanging in the balance? As if texting while driving wasn't bad enough!

Here is what could happen when these two unlikely things come together:
Operator: opN D pod bay drs, hal.
Ship: Sry dv, i cnt do dat


Operator: nEme n range. launch d fyters. fyr d guns!
Ship: l%k Dave, I cn C ur realy ^set bout dis. I onestly tnk u ought 2 sit dwn calmly, taK a str$ pill, n tnk fings ovr.

For those of us who aren't particularly texting inclined, try this texting translator here.
