    Now that the dark side of Facebook has been exposed to light, I view using it is an act of supreme gullability.

    This definitely belongs in this "Facebook Are You Kidding" Thread:

    "Facebook wants to send 'emotional’ robots to explore the world on tank-style tracks and scan the faces of people to ‘help users make friends’

    European patent filing reveals a broad concept for 'emotionally sensitive' robots

    They would identify faces and emotional states and allow users to talk to people

    The robots could be steered around on wheels or even designed to swim or fly..."

    If it only sampled me it would get the impression people are angry critters, but I would only be angry with the robot.

    Ha ha, agree. You cant make this stuff up. It appears there's no end to stupid getting more stupid. If I saw one of these hair brained robotical schemes approaching me I couldn't promise I'd keep my emotions in check either.
