We'll throw the money way up in the air, and whatever God wants he keeps.

99% of human males just want a girlfriend who will laugh at their jokes and farts.

Am I exaggerating? ...thinks ... thinks.... thinks....

OK. 96%.

Can it also share your last words after Chiwetel Ejiofor kills you with a sword?

I admit that I'd love to have someone around in person to talk to on a daily basis, but this is just a bridge too far.

After dealing with the general public today, I'd say you'll be better off with the high tech mannequin.  You'll get much less shiaty attitude and far more compassion.

It's funny how we're all very excited about the brave new world of robots to take care of all the things we don't feel like taking care of--like Grandma and the kids--but if you ask anyone if they'd personally like a robot to take care of them, they're like, Oh hell no.

We're going to get adult scooters that talk to us and remind us to go to the bathroom.  Then we can file lawsuits to make the Grand Canyon accessible to old people with talking scooters.

At this point? I just prefer the cats. One lays on a chair most days next to me while I work. One lays on top of my covers at night for warmth. One screams at me for a tiny piece of butter every morning when i make eggs.

If i want conversation, well, who am i kidding? More often than not, i just want to say my piece, and leave it at that.

Well, I guess we're right around the corner when they will mesh two
great technologies. The fembot that feigns laughter with the fembot the fakes orgasms.


/my twelve year old self would think that the Japanese would be perfecting
2 story fighting robots by now.
