Do you think these robots will have an advanced form of rabies too? Smile

Not all that impressive. Is twitter such a difficult task, that you would have to get NASA to build you a humanoid robot? Get a robot to clean my house, do my dishes, and not talk back, and possibly make me a sandwich or two every once and a while.

So as I sit idle and wait for my robot maid, you can go wait for your twit-bot. Smile
