Um...correct me if I'm wrong, but we--as a species--are NOT ready for this!  
http://dsc.discovery.com/news/briefs/20051219/awarerobot_tec.html?source=rss

I'm having visions of the Roomba dancing in front of the full length mirror in the bedroom while the Scooba wet vacs all the vodka and gin out of the liquor cabinet.

Anyone else concerned or do I just read too much sci-fi?

Twoodles.

LOL Yeah, we're doomed. Visions of the Matrix dance in my head.

Come on, we're a species that worries about this sort of thing. And what does this say about us. Besides that I'm doomed. Um? Why on earth would a reputable(?) news service bother reporting this one? WTF?

Not to mention the thousands & thousands of people who are flocking to Vegas to spend Christmas here of all places, and turning our freeways into parking lots (at least they eat pie!). Or, just take a look at my past and current co-workers. :) Doomed.

I have no faith in humanity. But you probably figured that, knowing me.

I'm doomed because I can't dance either. Don't we get any points for being geeks?

I don't have much faith in humanity either. But something inside me refuses to give up hope. Either that makes me an optomist...or insane. LOL

Little story about me and dancing, kinda.

K, so like a week ago I went over to Shelly's house (the bookkeeper) to hook up a new DVD player to her mom's TV. LOL Yeah, you think I'm kidding when I tell you people keep me around for my knack with electronics, but I'm not. :/

While I was there we played a little of The Sims 2. I knew it already so it wasn't weird, but she has a sim character of me in her game, because she does that sort of thing.

Well, while we were playing, SimTiff came over for a visit, so Shelly put on the music. While the other Sims danced their heads of, SimTiff kinda just stood there, hardly doing anything.

So even as a virtual character, I can't dance. ::shakes head::

That is too funny. And it makes me want my desktop computer back and how!

My ex had a copy of Sims2 on her laptop and I played once. I created Lily Rush from Cold Case and she had a brilliant home. She was also a cop. One day she brought home one of my other single female characters, another cop, and they made out like bunnies in the hot tub. Who was that? Oh yeah. Olivia Benson. LOLOLOL

I'm dying to get my desktop back so I can make Olivia and Casey Sims. LOLOL

LOLOLOL Yeah nice!

I'm dying to get my desktop back so I can make Olivia and Casey Sims.

OMG! That's the main reason why I'm buying a copy of Sims2 with the Christmas money from my grandparents... well, with what's left after I subtract the cost of my Limerific Adidas outfit, anyway. :D

I'm horrible and spend my Christmas money before I even actually get it. LOL Luckily I have a sister who peeks at everything and tells me how much $ we get.

You are going to laugh but I've had a copy of Sims2 since my birthday 2004. My ex gave it to me. But the only computer I can play it on is in storage. LOLOLOL The game is still in its shrinkwrap! LOL

I cannot WAIT to get my desktop back so I can play it. Casey/Olivia (with JP and Eliana later, I'd imagine), Seven/B'Elanna with Miral (eventually), Lily Rush and Jo Sutton from Cold Case, and Serena Southerlyn with....someone new? LOL

I can't wait. :D

::falls over:: You need to get that comp!

I've thought about getting it a dozen times over before now, but I knew that if I did I'd spend all my time playing it, and have no life get no sleep. But now I just have to have it!

someone new?

Hmm... how about a SimErin? LOL

"Express emotions"? Pardon me if this is species-ist, but...
Robots aren't supposed to have emotions.
I suddenly have "rebellion" fears. Like the, uh... Cylons? (Am I right to say that? It's been a while since I've seen BSG.)

We're totally going to destroy ourselves.

Isn't technology great?

It's times like this that I start wondering if the Terminator movies were action movies or how-to movies.

Whee.

Sooo... there could, one day, be a PMS'ing robot? Where is that cure for cancer?!
