Asimov’s First Rule

A researcher in Slovenia is conducting an experiment aimed at identifying and controlling robot-human pain thresholds.  How hard can a robot poke, grab, etc. a human?  It’s a worthwhile experiment as more and more interaction is liekly in our future.

Of course, here in the castle when I hit ‘Puter he always rates his pain as “unbearable”.  But he’s like that.  Maybe I’ll get Sleestak to dial down the thermohydralics to something under a couple thousand pounds per square inch.

About GorT

GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
