Had them in my game (manufacturing end) a long time, huge time saver and cuts waste down a lot.

>If voters can be manipulated by this

I think you give us humans too much credit, manipulation is easy.

Either way, genius.

Just back from Korea, saw a few of these robots on the roads.

"let slip today after i burnt my porridge while spreadsheeting"

One of us ;)


Maybe slightly but I think the smoking ban hit hard plus young un's nowdays get drunk at home (cheaper) and then go to the pub.

And as seen on twitter... "Americans eat like they have free health care."

I'm at 2. but it isn't any different, you still the same person.

When I wake up I think what woolly mammoth I need to kill today.

It's very hard to turn the switch off. I'm getting there though.

>Your bullshit filter was working well there Mark.

It's a curse not a power.

"...the line, sometimes wrongly attributed to Paxman, that he approaches every interview by asking of himself the question: "Why is this lying ba*tard lying to me?"

I agree with you both but people are more educated about food, I do think the health aspect is important.

"...blamed a "tsunami" of retail challenges, including business rate levels and the move to digital."

Well worth a read, some highlights:

"Let's forget Brexit and enjoy our last Christmas with running water. Brexit has many downsides, but I think it will be nice for the Irish to watch a British famine."

"It is at times like those that we will remember the work of Dominic Raab, who resigned in November, having decided that he could not endorse a deal that he himself had negotiated. Raab didnít want to be Brexit secretary, but he didnít have the negotiating skills to decline the job."

"Meanwhile, May tried to attack Jeremy Corbynís handling of antisemitism while in the middle of the Windrush scandal, which was like Pol Pot complaining about gender balance in the films of Martin Scorsese."

"Liam Fox manages to be a grotesque moral nihilist and yet, somehow, not even the worst Dr Fox. Like me, he was raised on an Irish Catholic council estate in Scotland. Itís these sliding-doors moments where I have to thank alcoholism for denying me the focus to become a genocidal sociopath."

"You can imagine that this is all quite surreal for the Saudis; they behead people in public, and starve the children of Yemen. The idea that they would be lambasted for killing a fully grown man in private with no witnesses must seem ridiculous; it would be as if I had got into trouble for saying someone looked like a spoon."

"Our government was angry about Khashoggi and sent the Saudis a strongly worded arms invoice."

"Perhaps the saddest part of this whole business is knowing that there are so few British journalists committed enough to get murdered: you could silence most just by breaking the fingers they use to do select all, copy, paste."

"One patriot filmed himself destroying his Nike clothing by cutting off the top couple of inches from his socks. Instead of destroying the clothing, heís created an additional, free set of Nike sweatbands."

"You have to ask yourself how abusive a relationship has to be if even kneeling in silence is too provocative, how you are valued in a country where even the statement that your life matters ignites furious dissent."

"To consider that, in a world that has pub lunches, wristwatches, golden retrievers, the novels of Donna Tartt, the music of Kendrick Lamar, flumes and The Amazing Spider-Man, there is still a plight where you starve to death, as a child, for no reason."
