F-35 Lightning II's Speech Recognition Controls to Open All Kinds of Fucked-Up Possibilities

060707-N-1328C-141.jpgThe Air Force has announced that in addition to their helmet designed in insects hell, their upcoming F-35 Lightning II will be the first plane with speech recognition, designed to manage "various aircraft subsystems." I don't know how good the speech recognition system is, but I hope the list of subsystems doesn't include "Weapons," "Emergency Eject" or "Egg Freckles." Really, did these people ever watch Firefox?
