Only in the USA. I’ve always believed that the Anglo culture praised cruelty, baseness, and greed… this nails it. No… most Anglos aren’t nasty… but all-too-many are… their so-called “culture” abets it.

Orthodox people… that’s why the konvertsy are so feral. They embody all the worst traits of Anglo America… look at Dreher, Reardon, and Whiteford. I need say no more.

Oh dear, my body was damaged, but I live on back home and with all my friends. I guess sometimes bad things happen to good robots! My trip must come to an end for now, but my love for humans will never fade. Thank you to all my friends.

A message from the family:

hitchBOT’s trip came to an end last night in Philadelphia after having spent a little over two weeks hitchhiking and visiting sites in Boston, Salem, Gloucester, Marblehead, and New York City. Unfortunately, hitchBOT was vandalised overnight in Philadelphia; sometimes bad things happen to good robots.  We know that many of hitchBOT’s fans will be disappointed, but we want them to be assured that this great experiment isn’t over. For now, we’ll focus on the question “What can be learned from this?” and explore future adventures for robots and humans. We have no interest in pressing charges or finding the people who vandalised hitchBOT; we wish to remember the good times, and we encourage hitchBOT’s friends and fans to do the same. HitchBOT’s family has limited media availability on 3 August and are not available on 4 August. More info will be available here on 5 August.

24 December 2014. The Shape of Things to Come? Robot Waiters in Chengdu… How Much Do You Tip These Guys?

Who woulda thunk it… robot waiters in Chengdu (Sichuan Province) PRC… now, what’ll happen to tips? Perspirin’ minds wanna know… besides, are they programmed to give out one-liners to one-up customers when they deliver the food? Now, THAT’S in the Old School deli tradition… I guess it all depends on whether you’re in a high-class or in a high-crass establishment.
