That Cloud Looks Like A Puppy!

Sky cam cross references pictures of clouds with image database to look for matches.

No more tedious lying on your back in a field on a balmy spring day looking at clouds to see if any of them look like faces, animals, objects and the like.

Simply let the Cloudmatch 9,000 system scan the sky and take millions of pictures of clouds overhead and search the Google image database for matches.

When you get a match, you can get an alert in your cubical, review the picture and say "Hey, that cloud looks like a dolphin!".

Then you can get back to work so you can pay your taxes like a good citizen with minimum time wasted relaxing outside and cloud gazing on a lazy afternoon which does little to support the self anointed ruling class that needs as much work out of you as they can get to expand their control of the planet towards the goal of an elitist utopia supported by increasingly low IQ workers who know their place and don't question their superiors.

"Hey, that one looks like our glorious leader! (May death come to all who question his wisdom.) Ok, back to work."

       "Towards" ? You arrived at that destination some considerable time ago. Presumably you missed the announcement that you should now disembark, and make sure you take all your personal possessions with you.   

       We suggest you check your surroundings. Are you alone, or nearly so ? Is it cold, and the lighting rather dim ? Did the cleaners leave some time ago ?   

       You seem to lack a certain amount of situational awareness...

       Did someone just get reamed out for spending too much time by the water cooler (by our glorious leader! (May death come to all who question his wisdom.)) or something? |:)

       Now, *that* puppy looks like a cloud!

       Weirdly, no one ever points at puppies (dolphins, horses, other animals, any other object, really) and exclaims in a delighted voice how much they resemble clouds

       Sheep? people say sheep look like clouds.

       There is, in fact, a species of predatory wasp that forms swarms that resemble clouds almost perfectly, as a form of camouflage. Unfortunately, for this very reason, this species has not yet been discovered.

       There may also be sentient, carnivorous clouds which devour unsuspecting ramblers on lonely moors.

       It'll be acid rain they use to digest them.
