  • A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
  • A robot must obey the orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
  • A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.

Sure, let's all move to the forward thinking and liberal country of Saudi Arabia. You go first. :twisted:

Saudi Arabia, at the Future Investment Initiative conference in Riyadh, announced the construction of a new city called Neom that will probably be populated more by robots than humans.

I've also heard that video games basically stimulate the brain in the same way amphetamines do...

Thus so often people stay up all night playing video games, they're basically tweaking.

I suppose any computer or television screen could have the same affect... why so many people are addicted to binge watching and surfing.

Comparatively few of the victims actually drank the poisoned Kool Aid. Many were shot to death and others had been killed by lethal injections administered in their arms.

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I'll meet you there.
Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I'll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about ideas, language, even the phrase "each other" doesn't make any sense.

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson
about a battle that goes on inside people.

He said, "My son, the battle is between
two "wolves" inside us all.

One is Evil.
It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed,
arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is Good.
It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith."

The grandson thought about it for a minute
and then asked his grandfather:
"Which wolf wins?"

The old Cherokee simply replied,
"The one you feed."
