@Duane: I read many Heinlein books back in the day, but I don't recognise that one.

It was a short story in a larger book...

The Disappearing Spoon is the best book I've read in a few years. My daughter devoured it as well.

@Steve: Do you think it's possible there may be metal robots (As opposed to "meat" robots) at EELive breakfast in 2016?

Well, it all depends if Duane has finished his Robot Avatar by then (he's promissed to make one for me also, so we could have two there).

      If so, what will you serve them?

Hopefully, they will be serving us LOL

Do you think it's possible there may be metal robots (As opposed to "meat" robots) at EELive breakfast in 2016? If so, what will you serve them?

By some strange quirk of fate, Duane Benson just introduced me to a relevant XKCD Cartoon (first read the cartood dialog, and then read the caption under the cartoon)
