6mm-Minis is Maksim-Smelchak's blog to discuss gaming, miniatures, books, movies, food, Israel, Judaism, life in general and other funny crud. My favorite scale of miniatures is 6mm, which is also called 1/285 or 1/300 scale. I enjoy many different kinds of games including ancients, Napoleonics, WWI, WWII, the Arab-Israeli conflict, Car Wars AKA Autoduel (a sort of crash'n'derby automobile combat game), 6mm Godzilla AKA Kaiju games, and science fiction games. I'm open to everything though!

WEIRD NEWS: The ROBOTS Are Here, And They, Not The Dingos, Want Our Babies!

Hi Everyone,

I came across this news article this morning and thought to share...

Robot Birth Simulator Gaining Popularity
By PAUL ELIAS, AP Biotechnology Writer

VALLEJO, Calif. - Noelle's given birth in Afghanistan, California and dozens of points in between. She's a lifelike, pregnant robot used in increasing numbers of medical schools and hospital maternity wards.

The full-sized, blond, pale mannequin is in demand because medicine is rapidly abandoning centuries-old training methods that use patients as guinea pigs, turning instead to high-tech simulations. It's better to make a mistake on a $20,000 robot than a live patient. ...
Pretty cool, huh? I dont know how much dealing with a cold robot will help nurses and doctors with their bedside manner, but I'm all in favor of saving a few more lives...

It's probably all a secret conspiracy by the robots to take our babies... do ya think?
