    I feel like the Times kind of buries the lede in this story, which to me is this:

    Today’s robot designers believe that their creations will become therapists, caregivers, guides and security guards, and will ultimately perform virtually any form of human labor.

    It reminds me of a movie I watched a few months ago, "Frank and Robot."

    And it should remind everyone here to make sure your children get an education so that they won't be in a job as a therapist, caregiver, guide, or security guard when the singularity arrives.

    Because mere human intelligence cannot grasp the double switch.

    If robots develop similar to the Internet, sex slave robots will be built before any of those other occupations.

    They've already got the kissing part down, according to the article.

    What married man is going to PAY for robotic, unfeeling sex?

    They already pay for it. Every day.

    You spelled, "Once every few months" wrong.

    I was talking about the payment, not the sex.

    Do we even have a whisker of humanity left in us as a species?
    How much more can we as human beings possibly disconnect from ourselves?
