If you program a machine-human hybrid to carry out orders for you subconsciously, the best plan afterward is to bring him into your base, heal him fully, tell him everything about his history, and then politely ask him join you against his friends.

    A jeep that hasn't been driven in years will have perfectly inflated tires, full gas, oil...etc.

      Skynet only finds it useful to attack John Connor in the past three times. Going after, say, John's distant relatives in the 1800's which would therefore end his entire family line is just stupid.

      In the future, when all humans are dead, there will still be a conference room with a built-in laboratory and elaborate user interface for human users.

        When killing random people, Terminators will punch a hole in their stomach. When killing very important targets, they will throw them around.

          Relieving someone of his command doesn't really mean anything if he still has the loyalty of his troops, his own radio channel, and you're quite far away.

            If you're #1 on Skynet's "kill list" and are captured, it'll take them a really long time to actually come around to even trying to kill you.

              Skynet probably wanted to lure JC there (to save his father). But of course they could have had Kyle killed without JC knowing.

            A terminator would rather resemble a skeletal human than do cool things like have 360-degree vision or wheels for legs.

              The power to detect big objects falling directly over their heads would greatly increase average terminator life spans.

                    Because fashion police said so. How dare you? Do you even know, how hard it is for a terminator to get some decent clothes in post-apocalyptic world?
                  • 20th August 2010 by kvn8907
                    Why are any of the terminators wearing clothes at all?

                  Falling several thousand feet and proceeding to skip off the water like a stone doesn't cause you to question whether or not you're a little bit "Special."

                      Don't say you wouldn't be (if you were a terminator). It's Guns 'n roses. Now I think about it, it's quite foreshadowing what is Ahnold carrying in the box full of roses in T-2.

                    When one man has the ability to sway the entire human resistance in his favor, against the will of the resistance command, Don't even bother asking if someone will give him a heart. Just take it from the guy that successfully killed the most destructive weapon in the history of mankind... I mean it's not like that guy will ever come in handy.

                          A quickly made pipe bomb will almost cripple a T-800, but 3 grenades, hot molten steel, and a quick freeze will do almost nothing to it.

                              Ah, the power of magnetism! Now, if SkyNet ever decided to make terminators completely out of stainless steel, the minefield would be even more worthless than it already is! (SkyNet could, as it is, just send wave after wave of killbots, or rapell some down from aircraft)

                            100 ft tall terminator robots that are more than capable of chasing down a beaten up tow truck will get lazy and poop out two motorcycles to go do the job instead.

                                  When installing the mechanism that allows you to control your most advanced terminator to date, be sure to position it someplace near where the host can reach and easily remove, just in case they develop a nasty case of the morals.

                                      Skynet will send a terminator after your mother before you're born, after you're born, and another terminator to kill your lieutenants and your future wife but it doesn't think to blow up the time travel installation where it knows you and your time-displaced father will eventually have to go if you're to stop it.

                                        Moto terminators can easily dodge incoming debris, but will not be able to detect a thick metal cable right in its path.

                                              Machines have made evil eel like machines that like to swim around in lakes for no apparent reason, waiting for a human to unwittingly go for a swim. Are they breeding down there?

                                                that is the best comment ever. I was like, "Wow, that Terminator is quite limited". Next will be a terminator that's only underground waiting for digger humans.

                                                  Better to take the heart from an experimental cyborg than from one of your thousands of fanatical soldiers with normal bodies.

Pfft, no biggie! Walking through AN ENTIRE FACTORY OF KILLER MACHINES? Not a problem, only one of those machines will be working.

                                                      or two of them, if you count T-700, who is high on a new drug - screwdriver in the neck, and hands out bullets uncontrollably

                                                    If you're going to create a human/machine hybrid, make sure the human world won't become severely prejudiced against machines in the near future.

All you have to do is not send the very first Terminator back through time. However, if you are Skynet, humans are smarter than you because you still haven't figured this out. No wonder humanity wins.
