    Did they really have to do a fist bump at the end?

    It's coming, and there's not much we can do about it. The robotic era is already here. Not saying I like it, because I like human interaction, rather than getting programmed responses.

    I really enjoy driving. I wouldn't want a self driving vehicle.

    How will self driving vehicles do in a white out snow storm, or when encountering a bunch of idiots on mopeds? Too many variables involved for me to feel safe.

    Fast food workers want $15/hr to get my order wrong.
    Fast food restaurants want to go to automated ordering systems. Who will win?

    I am looking forward to self driving cars. That's hundreds of hours a year I can recover. Can I replace the windshield with a TV?

    This kinda stuff makes me wanna disconnect from society and go live in a cabin in the woods.
    But that’d be too much work.
    Guess I’ll need a woods-robot to help me do stuff!

    Robby was great! I also enjoyed his work in The Twilight Zone, The Addams Family, and Lost in Space!
