Weird News of the Week

Yahoo! News - Replacing Child Camel Jockeys with Robots

Many times I am stuck with putting stuff on here that interests only me. And sure enough, this does interest me from the I,Robot stand point. While I am all for people having jobs and stuff like that, this does look like the first step to folks being replaced by robots. No offense to waiters and waitresses but this will make the tipping market very competitive i.e. do you go to a restaurant that replaces its human workers with robots understanding that you don't have to tip them and they won't be offended? Only someone like me will think of crap like that.
