[extropy-chat] Robot jockeys to ride Gulf camels

Third world meets modern tech: to solve the problem of kids being
kidnapped and starved for use as camel jockeys in races, The Powers
That Be are developing robot jockeys, and presumably eventually
planning to ban living jockeys entirely.  (There is currently a lower
age limit, but determined criminals find ways around those, and that
doesn't solve the starvation problem.)

So, who's going to protest that this is putting camel jockeys out of a
job - especially since that's the whole point?  ;)
