Obama and the Robot

"I, for one, welcome our new robot overlords."

Japan’s obsession with robots is going to doom us all. This is how Skynet begins, with a friendly game of robot soccer. Drudge and some conservative sites are trying to make much of the fact that Obama bowed to the robot, but the robot bowed to him in greeting, so it seems like a reasonable [Read More...]
