Maybe it was the equivalent of two shoppers fighting over the last box of chocolate cereal. If so, send these robots to Walmart.


The robots are serving man.

This is why it really sucks to have two roombas.

They were trying to get into the pre-cooked food business.


I was expecting "Warning Will Robinson! Warning Will Robinson!" from one of them.

From the video, it doesn't appear anyone involved is over age 26. They need some crusty old timers in there who have some real-world experience with Murphy's Law. Need to keep some fire suppression gear next to the duct tape, and a big red kill switch on the wall.

That's odd, I just watched the recent Tom Scott video on that place. Quite interesting, if you want to see what it was like pre-fire.

Did anyone remember to say "Klaatu barada nikto!" ??????

I could bring that place down with a Strategically placed pack of chewing gum.

Just saying . . .

One Gort robot could have taken care of this problem in a flash.

BTW, the code words, Klaatu, barada, nikto, have been changed according to the Roswell, space aliens.
