    A robot with a knife!

    Sous chef of the future? Robot learns to slice vegetables using a knife

    What happens when this fellow learns how to stab someone and kills its owner? Who goes to prison? The manufacturer or designer I suppose. Or perhaps the robot goes to prison...muwahahahaha! I imagine that at some point in the (probably quite distant, but in the grand scheme of things very near) future, robots will be held accountable for their own actions, undergo trials for their crimes, end up fighting for their rights, etc. Sound like science fiction? Well, much of science fiction is actually real science that "hasn't happened yet"! Robotic pride rally, anyone?

    Other than faint recognition of the name, I'm entirely unfamiliar with them, having never watched Battlestar Galactica. If it's related to what I wrote here, must be a fun show - maybe I should check it out some time lol.
