Wade_Wilson: Okay, here's my crazy idea. Let me know if you see any flaws.I get one of these and start a business to help make peoples' children behave. They hire me if their bratlings won't do homework, clean their rooms, etc. They send a picture of the child and I make up the robot to look superficially like them; wig, similar clothes, etc.Their little snowflake comes home from school to find me there as a "salesman" trying to interest them in a new improved kid. I have the robot with me, and it's sitting there coloring and occasionally saying things like "How was work today, Mommy?" and "Daddy, would you like me to get you a grown-up drink from the fridge?".I try to keep it as realistic as possible, explaining how economic the robot child is compared to a real one, show graphs depicting the excellent grades they get, point out that once we install artificial skin and a voice-pack based on the original child, no one will know the difference.The parents politely but firmly decline, declaring how much they love their little bundle of joy, and are sure his/her behavior will eventually improve. It helps if one parent, probably the dad, seems a little bit intrigued though, maybe asking me to repeat a few details about the payment plan. I wish them luck, but insist they keep a brochure, and leave.The parents will of course tell the child that they were just humoring me, and they'd never think to replace him/her, but they sometimes get caught glancing over that brochure or leave it conspicuously around the house whenever the kid is acting up.How much do you think I could charge for this service, and what sort of psychological damage waivers would I need to have my customers sign? I figure when the inevitable lawsuits arise, I'll tell the judge that millions of parents tell their children that a fat man is watching them 24/7 and will deny them Christmas presents if they misbehave, and even pay people to imitate this individual to drive the message home, so how is my busine ...
