Where Robots Come From

... or where the word "robot" comes from at least!

From Reader's Digest:
Some robots (Robbie, Wall-E) we adore. But many others (the terminators, Alien's Ash, those cylons from Battlestar Galactica) are downright evil -- with good reason: The term robot comes from the Czech robota for "compulsory labor" and the Latin orbus for "orphan". Now, if you were a motherless machine forced to work against your will, wouldn't you be belligerent too?
:)  I knew there was a good reason to not like robots!

You may look cute, but you still scare me!

  1. That looks like the RoboDog that Roger brought over for Danny. It barks, walks, and wags its tail. Danny likes it, but you might be scared.
