I took a quiz on OKCupid that told me I was a robot. It doesn't get any more official than that!

You're in a desert, walking along in the sand, when all of a sudden you look down and see a tortoise. It's crawling toward you. You reach down and you flip the tortoise over on its back. The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over, but it can't. Not without your help. But you're not helping. I mean, you're not helping! Why is that?

I read this as "soft drink machine". If I am a robot, I'm a pretty crappy one.

I don't think so, but I've been wrong in the past. No, really. I have.

When I was little, my brothers and some kids who were staying with us for part of the summer tried to convince me that I was a robot that my parents bought to replace the real kilgore, who had died some years previously in a horrible accident. I believed them and I cried a lot. Robots don't do that, right?

If you have to be a robot, you might as well be capable of dispensing soft drinks. And hard drinks. And nice hot drinks to keep us warm. And any other kinds of drinks that anyone may desire.

Also, Beeeeeeeeeep!!!!!

Also, I'm sorry CQ, but this is not as much fun as your last poll because there are no bonus points and I can only select one option!

Beep. (That's the first one of my reboot beeps. I'm having coffee.)

Last spring I went to an exhibition called "Roboterwelten" (robot worlds), and they had an interactive installation where you could talk to a computer (i.e. give simple yes/no answers to questions about the universe and the human mind and human interaction). I talked to a curator later on and he said so far I'm the only person he knows of who got such a weird result. At the end of our "conversation", the program told me it had concluded I was a computer too. It went on, "I won't be sad when you go, because you're always here with me. I'm going to sing now." And then it actually started to "sing" in beeps.

I'm scared I'll find its battery compartment.

And I love this thread.

ETA: Vegan robots have the 1st Law of Robotics extended to include all animal lifeforms, not just humans.

"Other", because I'm really not sure. Maybe Harrison Ford could come over to my house and ask me various questions to help me find out? That would be ok.

Phoenix is officially a robot. Congratulations!

As I said, I don't harm anyone. You can ask my kitties!
Mostly I'm a typewriter, I guess. Especially during NaNoWriMo (typing during the day and at night!).
I can also dispense cat food (non-stop), shop for groceries and clean (not that often) and record spooky stories (every once in a while).
You don't want to know about robot sex, do you? ;P

ETA: I think I run on Twizzlers. And now Swedish Fish, too.
