    You guys are trying to put me out of a job!! No we don't need any robots that cook, there are plenty of cooks out there.

    If it did the dishes, abso-bloody-lutely!

    I wouldn't get one for cooking, though. I like cooking, and I think that good food has a human element to it... compare a mass produced pre-packaged meal that robots in a factory have made to a home-prepared meal. Robotic maid, yes. Robotic chef? Eh.

    This, 100% this. Dishes are my second least favorite household chore, right behind vacuuming.

    There's the Roomba if you hate vacuuming.
    “You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can drip and it can crash. Become like water my friend.” -- Bruce Lee

Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”

    After seeing a video of a Roomba having smeared dog poo all over a loungeroom, I'm thinking that a Roomba is a risky thing to have if you have an indoor pet!

    This recently happened to a friend of mine. I suggested she get the scooba version...automatic mopper, ftw!

    I've been thinking about getting one because the cats and my allergies and kids...

    Make my meals? No.

    Wash my clothes? Hell yes.

    Pretty much all the other clean-y chores, yeah, no question. But not cooking. I love cooking.
