    But what he hasn’t said is the robot has no extended warranty, parts cost 4x as much s the original one from the factory, and…it has a crush on the vending machine in the break room.

    Some day we’ll all be replaced by robots, but by then it won’t really matter because they will have taken over anyway.

    Ask it to calculate the last digit of pi.
    Ask it the result of 0/0
    Ask it to determine the truth of “this is a lie”

    Then when it is permanently locked up, your boss won’t complain about your performance.

    I’ve been in so many factories, warehouses, and abattoirs that are completely automated. It is freaky that you can traverse row after row of machines, churning out thousands of parts/pieces per second, and never see another human being. Recently I spotted a guy wearing a “be nice to me or I’ll replace you with a perl script” t-shirt. Nice touch.

    The head of the auto worker’s union was being given a tour of General Motors one day by the GM President.
    When they were viewing a new automated construction line, watching the machines turn and whir, the president of GM said to the Union leader, “I’d like to see you try to collect union dues from those machines.”
    The union leader looked at the president of GM and said, “I’d like to see you try to sell them a car.”
    True story…
