How cynically horrible. Robotic baby seals in lieu of a real pet in order to make old people smile but without all the pooping, grooming and feeding? Humanity can be so disgustingly inhumane when trying to be humane.


Buy a dog/cat you assholes.

Wonder if people putting their parents into old people's homes will start comparison shopping and looking for ones that offer robotic seals for hours and hours of old people fun? Or will they go for the one that has a golden retriever?

and I'd suspect them of raising seals for food if they had live pups.

"This retirement community doesn't allow pets except during visits."

That would seem to throw a small monkey-wrench into your otherwise brilliant "Buy a dog/cat you assholes" plan.

dont know why you bother by cam (4.00 / 1) #5 Thu Jun 26, 2008 at 07:46:22 AM EST
trolling me. I have been around here long enough that people know I am an easy target. Go find someone harder to make bite.

Fully half of them are Canuckistanis. Friendly ones, they are.

What's to bite? by Beechwood 45789 (4.00 / 4) #11 Thu Jun 26, 2008 at 09:37:08 AM EST
It was just a more interesting way of saying RTFA.

Why would anybody troll you? You get into a rage about people making therapeutic toys for people with mental disabilities. And your solution to the inhumane problem of people using technology to help people is to give people with problematic dementia or autism something living to care for.

You're pretty much self-trolling as far as I can figure.

Developing the close reading skills that poetry rewards might help you avoid these sorts of embarrassing outbursts.

it is amusing by cam (2.00 / 0) #19 Fri Jun 27, 2008 at 05:27:24 AM EST
periodically someone comes through, whether through personal animosity, thinking they have some social right to; or simply because I am an easy target; someone will come through and troll me for a while. Despite this I still post the same stuff, don't change my personality any, and still post to husi. Yet the trolls fade in and out, come and go, have nicks like bond license plates, and so forth.

Anyway, last comment of yours I will be replying to. Good luck with the whole internet persona, hope it works for you.

Buy a dog/cat by wiredog (4.00 / 1) #3 Thu Jun 26, 2008 at 06:43:35 AM EST
No. Go to the local shelter and get the animal there.

I think it's safe to call that "buying."

The robot isn't a bad idea by muchagecko (4.00 / 2) #15 Thu Jun 26, 2008 at 10:44:57 AM EST
for some folks. There's no guilt if they accidentally kill a robot.

From the sound of the woman on NPR this morning, she really thought it was a live seal.
