Monday Fun Video: Countdown to Skynet - iPod touch Edition

I, Robot. The Butlarian Jihad. Terminator. Cylons. The Matrix. And the endless sci-fi stories that inspired them. All that cultural warning and still, like lemmings, we humans rush towards inventing our replacements.

This wanna-be inventor needs to consider a new career doing something that better suits their qualifications. Like selling ice cream from a truck. :roll:

Rene, if this represents our future overlords I'm really not going to worry. I can out run that 'bot easily and will be able to do that well into my '90's. Plus, that smiley face app makes the robot as menacing as the Stay Puff Marshmellow Man.

I guess you're easily amused. :roll:
