Any questions I had about when our robot overlords would begin to populate the planet have been firmly answerered.

By the way, what's it take to get a friggin' laser beam attached to its head? Make a robotic shark(I know they already exist) with one and Mike Meyers has a new joke ready for the next Austin Powers.
