That's why we make robots cut onions, they do not cry!

Robots will one day kill us all. Or use us as their playthings. Wonder where I read that....

True AI will be a lot harder to implement than people thought. All the processing power in the world won't mimic the human brain. The solution will most likely be much subtler than Colossus.

At present, robots are dorks.

I think dependency on technology will kill us quicker than sentient robots. One day there will be a power surge, all these machines will shut down, and we will starve.

This is probably better placed here to minimize drama and unnecessary conversation in the Pav.

Writers apparently need to be aware of TWISTED DREAMS (online) MAGAZINE, and it's editor (who appears to behave as or like a TOOL.) This lady comes off as a major herman.

I don't want to stir up the shit over in the Pav, so I'll post it here: I figured the anonymous poster was one of our regular cyber stalkers. I guess one man's hobby is another man's unhealthy obsession.

Yes, rich is proving himself to be as good as his word. (Not.)

For a self-declared moral compass he's having a devil of a time keeping a promise he made to Rick.

I'm glad I held back because Steve has responded much better than I could have.
I'm almost afraid Steve would be able to sum up my character as concisely... No, I'm unpredictable...
WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

Careful Jan, you might just have pulled a muscle.

In my experience, (and I am guilty of tossing them a fresh bone now and again and again) trolls often leave here well nourished.
