In my younger days, I thought that anthropoid robots were cool, to the point of believing the comic book notion that one could conquer the world with an army of them. It took me a while after figuring out that I didn't really want to conquer the world to figure out that the human form is far from optimal as a design for a robot.

Les Jones has taken my notion that a dedicated dishwashing machine makes more sense than having a multifunction robot one step farther, by suggesting that any machine that can be given a task and left to complete it is indeed a robot.
