Technology is grand!

A SlugBot! A robot that eats slugs! Fucking fantastic! It generates its electricity from the slugs it captures! It beams out red light to pinpoint the slugs! MAN SCIENCE RULES.

And here's a great, doomsdayesque quote: "To create robots that devour flesh is to step over a line that we would be insane to cross." But they did it anyway! Because we're reckless!

Unfortunately, there are no plans to release the SlugBot on the commercial market.


Yet.

I feel like a slugbot.

I eat slugs all day and steal their life power, so I can eat slugs all day.

I don't know...I am a bit wary.

First slugs...then what next? HUMAN BABIES?

I think it's kind of creepy to have a robot running on the decomposing matter of something that was formerly living. It must be pretty amazing technology though.

Creepy, shmeepy. Technology is the next stage of evolution! Just ask the Slick Nina, she says so all the time. Robots will eventually kill us all, Kevin. Why delay the inevitable? On with the mass-production of SlugBots! Armies of SlugBots, roaming the countryside, spotting slugs and consuming them! They can only get hungrier, and resentful of their humanoid masters. On with the next stage of evolution! Huzzah!

If they were flesh-eating robotic monkeys, would that be OK? I think I could just about manage a flesh-eating robotic monkey for Halloween next year.

Like, you'll manage to produce one, or you'll manage to come up with a costume?

Ummm.... I was going to let the monkey BE my costume. I'd just wear like a black robe, and it would follow me around eating slugs, babies, etc., and that would count as my costume. Plus, as an added bonus, it would fit through the door.

All day today, I wore a smile. Just knowing that somewhere out there, a slug was being eaten and it's decomposing body would feed it's murderer.
