The Internet is ablaze over Skynet—the highly advanced artificial intelligence computer from the

Terminator

films.



Terminator

director James Cameron alerted the world via Twitter that according to his movies, Skynet has officially become self-aware—meaning nuclear holocaust and death at the hand of laser-wielding robots.



Though Cameron followed this by saying the real threat to mankind is global warming, the news comes on the heels of former Terminator-turned-politician Arnold Schwarzenegger's confession that since leaving his post as Governator of California, his biggest insecurity is his out-of-shape physique. Naturally, this leads the world to ask, who will be sent from the future to protect us now?
