As I introduce this, I realize it can go downhill fast.

Robot Pick up Lines
"Is that a joystick in your pocket or are you just glad to see me?"
"Wanna share programs?"
"I'm just looking for a one-night compile, not a commitment."

^ "I'd like to take a vacation in your uncanny valley."
"Care to hear the clank-clank of little feet?"
"Forgive me in advance if I yell out Will Robinson's name by mistake."

CNN at least could have had the decency to run those scientists obituaries along with this article.

So now, even the robots are getting more action than the nerds who build them? What could possibly go wrong?

Just another sales opportunity for Hallmark.

Isaac Asimov wrote a novel about sentient robots causing problems. Maybe the scientists could have at least watched the movie that might explain best why we should require our budding mad scientists to undergo psychiatric evaluations before being allowed to build and program robots.


"Not tonight, dear -- I have a gearbox-ache."

Those 'robots' look like they fell off of a coffee cake.

Add this to the List of Activities That Cry Out For Adult Supervision.

@ripleysparrow--I assume you are referring to the mad scientists that are in need of adult supervision.

If you look carefully, over in one corner of the petri dish, this is going on.

I can still remember the good 'ol days, when we all took solace in the belief of a brighter future where there were no robots because the people who BUILT them didn't reproduce. Sadly, it looks like those hopes are being dashed.

So is an unfaithful robot booted or rebooted?

Flathead County Frank - I understand your first wife told you, "until we get married, you can't even talk about having sex." Then after you married her she says, "now you can talk about having sex all you want, but we ain't having any."

man tom--You must have dated her too?

Anybody else see the picture and think, "Fried Shrimp"?
