  1. My brother suggested I may like this website because he always calls me a “wanker.” For once he was entirely right. Thanks!

  2. what can possibly be the use of the behemoth robots in real life? They can’t walk among us because we’d be squashed to a pulp, right? What ever happened to Japan’s interesting robotic developments, especially in the humanoid department?

  3. I read your report, and I think, this idea could be very useful at my workplace.
