this is still my take on us v superintelligent AI

from my Tumblr about a year ago:

SUPERINTELLIGENT AI: You humans appear to be destroying the planet. 
HUMANS: But but we need cars and planes! Lots of cars and planes! 
SUPERINTELLIGENT AI: But this will result in not just your deaths but the deaths of uncounted species and ecosystems. 
HUMANS: Have you seen cars? Or planes? They’re really neat. 
SUPERINTELLIGENT AI: //zaps humanity //tries to choose between raccoons and octopuses
