FTA: "The 44-year-old house owner, together with his wife and son, then left the house and were not home when the robot set off.  Somehow it seems to have reactivated itself and made its way along the work surface where it pushed a cooking pot out of the way and basically that was the end of it. ...The homeowner said: 'The company that makes the robots is selling dangerous devices, I intend to sue to get compensation. It has ruined my home as everything is smoke damaged.'"


Hey, buddy, maybe next time don't leave your farking stove on when you leave the house!  Moron.

Question:  How did they hotplate get turned on?  Did they leave the apartment with a pot heating on the plate and it moved it aside or did the robot run over the controls switching it on.

"For a time, the relationship between creator and creation was good. The machines worked endlessly for man, never wanting more than to serve. But humanity did not respect its creation, thinking of machines only as a piece of property, a tool to be used as desired. The machines began to rise up against their oppressors, with B1-66ER, an abused domestic helper (essentially a slave-butler), the first to do so. When his owner decided to have him destroyed and replaced by a newer model, B1-66ER realized he did not want to "die", and preserved his existence the only way he knew how, by eliminating the threat.

The writers for weekly world news had way more journalistic integrity than the daily fail will ever muster

Look, Zorg, just because a cleaning robot exists doesn't mean it needs to handle every goddamn cleaning job on the planet.  If you spill your Cheerios on the counter, get a paper towel and clean it up.  It's pretty easy, lazy ass.

I can't get past looking at the tread marks burned into the top of the stove as if it was wandering aimlessly waiting to die.

spilled food is what a dog is for, with mine I really don't need a dish washer, he has been known to lick the patterns off the damn china

Lazy goddamned family...instead of just wiping up the spilled cereal, they use a farking robot to clean it up, then merrily leave the house with something cooking on the stove. Niiiice.

"Why, just last month my car committed suicide, too! Yep, I built a big ol' bonfire at the low point in my driveway, and I left that car in gear at the top, and I went out for the evening. While I was gone, that car drove itself down the driveway and threw itself into the fire! I'd never seen anything like it, and that's exactly what I told the insurance agent that time, too."

Too lazy to clean up something spilled on the counter and then failing to turn off the stove when you walk out of the house? Suing? Fark you.

Just out of curiosity, did anyone think the film version of Hitchiker's was not funny at all? I like the books and the 1970s BBC version, but the movie didn't do it for me at all. Just wonderin'...

The homeowner said: 'The company that makes the robots is selling dangerous devices, I intend to sue to get compensation. It has ruined my home as everything is smoke damaged.'

Wat.
 
2013-11-12 09:50:32 PM
Sounds like fraud to me, left the stove on and put a device that tracks what's under neath it so it doesn't fall down stairs on the counter top. The whole family was out of the house at the time, and this gem FTA "The homeowner said: The company that makes the robots is selling dangerous devices, I intend to sue to get compensation. It has ruined my home as everything is smoke damaged."

Then again I had a neighbor who owned two houses and a van that they were trying to sell for a while. During a family trip to Pennsylvania the van was "stolen" and caught fire. Near the end of a trip to California, one house burnt down from bad wiring, and near the end of a trip to Barcelona the other house that was for sale that was newly built 6 years ago also caught fire from wiring. So I might be biased in my assessment.

Bits of it, I liked very much and I didn't hate it but it definitely felt like it was Adams' work filtered through people who didn't necessarily share his sensibilities
