Am smiling at the thought of a robot politician or civil servant, programmed to be incapable of telling lies.  :)

There'd be chaos!  lol
That's right -- there would be chaos.  Politicians are hired to tell lies; that's their job.

So what if they "steal" our jobs... you dont need a job to live nor money, just what you buy with money. And it's we people who force ourselves to buy with money. Silly...

And astrology is a form of art, especially it's research. It'll always be a job for the humans, even if you might have robots doing the readings. I wouldn't be surprised of that, since there's already astrology programs out there that can pretty much do it, or could if you put the same effort into building such a program as you put into a new version of Windows.

I've been born again 31,8,2014 approximately 21:35 local time. A moment free of clutter in the mind, emancipating myself like an escapist, allowing myself to breathe life in a stronger, less physical level... though it does resonate to physical world. It's the oomph.

Oh I wouldn't be too sure about that.  The computer game companies are already working on it.

Is it my destiny to lose my virginity to a sexbot.
I don't think so because it's liking have intercourse with a Mechano set.
But at least you won't catch any STD's like Aids and Chroymnia.
And her orgasm will be as fake as Meg Ryan's in When Harry Met Sally.
At least you don't need any cheesy chat- up lines to woo it over.
Tbh I'm more keen in making out with the lingerie.
At least that's more natural.

We all know about automation -- it's not like we haven't been warned.  We need to think ahead, keep ourselves flexible, constantly learn new things, have money saved up, and be aware.

As i've said before.

IT is made for supporting, instead of replacing humans, in their daily chores.

The machines taking the jobs of ppl stems from the industrial revolution and taylorism. Organisation have evolved from that stage.
Automatisation doesn't automatically lead to getting fired. Quite the contrary. With new systems, new functions arise. Most companies are also very aware of morale and know that talks of a new system scares ppl. That's why many companies ask for a design in which everyone will still be needed. Sometimes a bit of reschooling needs to happen yes. And that's the way we are headed. Less constrained tasks and more multifunctionalism. More reschooling to keep up and also don't "get stuck" in what you do.

See Toffler and his third wave.

Of course, as always, ppl create fear around everything like the end is nigh - AGAIN - so they don't have to think about anything, just nag nag nag.
It's all about evolving with the world.

If robots take over our jobs and people are out of work, won't that affect the owners of the companies in a negative way? Like since people will be out of work and they won't have money to spend so therefore no one is buying products that robots produced thus the companies will fold. hmmm
