Hey Chris, did you have one of those slow motion personal reflection thingies with loud somber music like Michael Bay has in every one of his movies right before the evil robots, asteroids, or bad guys are about to end the world?

I hear the Roomba actually has more sucktion than the Alba-bot 2700, but I'm still not canceling my orders...

I thought that we had already been taken over long ago by those wind-up chomping sets of teeth that they sell at joke stores. Confused

Will Sophie Asher visit us from the future and bring a glorious Matrix/Terminator style AG book to save us?

I'm pretty sure Herman Hesse mentions the wire twisty things in Steppenwolf, what he called the kleine Drehendraht Dingsta, but that might have just been a metaphor for the beast/genius dichotomy of the differentiated loner. It's been a while since I read it.

Oh, dude, I totally did. I forgot to put that in. Just when I thought the Roomba was going to vaporize me, this montage of my whole life like ran before my eyes. And it was so weird, because it kept skipping on the parts where I was taking driver's ed and the discovery of booty. It's like there's a glitch in my software.

Oh jeeze, I'm one of them! I'm a cylon!

All is well. Nevermind. It's all good. Forget I said anything...

Too late. And can you keep that glowing red light in one place, please? Really, all that back and forth, back and forth is totally unnerving.

So what you're saying is Roomba sucks and all this continuous hinting on a Dyson and how much "I'll love it" is a good thing?
