This is where we fail the Turing test


The more you know!

After finding so many awesome links about robotics, static electricity and SETI this week, we're inspired to do SOMETHING with all of these rogue components laying around. Perhaps we should build Timmy a real mech suit?

meaningless icon! Is it sad that I have literally seen more than half of these links already? Maybe @thinkgeek and I follow the same people... @loyaleagle

meaningless icon! Totally possible, Jimmy! We're pretty cosmopolitan netizens and read a lot of popular blogs, forums and aggregate sites. Or maybe it's just that you follow us and click through on our links? Because all of these links are ones we've posted to Twitter or Facebook this week past. That could totally be it.
