Robots and gas? What could go wrong?
A Reuters story says they’ve unveiled this robot that will pump your gas while you stay in your car.
Call me cynical, but I have misgivings about combining a multi-jointed mechanical limb, a high-end luxury car and an ultra-volatile substance used in making Molotov cocktails.
HELLO SIR CAN I FILL ‘ER UP FOR YOU?
Uh, sure, robot.
OKAY I’M PUMPING NOW SIR… HOW ‘BOUT THEM GIANTS SIR?
Excuse me, robot, but that’s not my gas tank, it’s my window!
See, this dramatic story was not real, it was just imagined, to show why you may want to keep pumping gas yourself until this gizmo is perfected. OH DO NOT WORRY SIR THE GAS IS GOOD FOR YOUR LEATHER UPHOLSTERY…
