Someone recently shared with me an interesting quote from Immanuel Kant:
Out of the crooked timber of humanity, no straight thing was ever made
(German original: Aus so krummem Holze, als woraus der Mensch gemacht ist, kann nichts ganz Gerades gezimmert werden)
It looks like robots are not the solution to this particular problem:
A particular variant of Murphy’s law states that a demonstration’s probability of failure is directly proportional to the size of the audience. Since such a probability quickly exceeds one (unless you use super-advanced mathematics, that is), failure almost never fails:
I wonder if the presence of a camcorder measurably improves the rate of failure…
This cruel treatment to robots reminds me of one of the greatest robotic quotes ever:
The first ten million years were the worst, and the second ten million years, they were the worst too. The third ten million I didn’t enjoy at all. After that I went into a bit of a decline.
