Strangers in the night exchanging glances
Wondring in the night
What were the chances wed be sharing love
Before the night was through.
Something in your eyes was so inviting,
Something in you smile was so exciting,
Something in my heart,
Told me I must have you.
Strangers in the night, two lonely people
We were strangers in the night
Up to the moment
When we said our first hello.
Little did we know
Love was just a glance away,
A warm embracing dance away and -
Ever since that night weve been together.
Lovers at first sight, in love forever.
It turned out so right,
For strangers in the night.
Tall and tan and young and lovely
The girl from ipanema goes walking
And when she passes, each one she passes goes - ah
When she walks, shes like a samba
That swings so cool and sways so gentle
That when she passes, each one she passes goes - ooh
(ooh) but I watch her so sadly
How can I tell her I love her
Yes I would give my heart gladly
But each day, when she walks to the sea
She looks straight ahead, not at me
Tall, (and) tan, (and) young, (and) lovely
The girl from ipanema goes walking
And when she passes, I smile - but she doesnt see (doesnt see)
(she just doesnt see, she never sees me,...)

Why are robots always the villains? Why are robots
always portrayed as shifty aggressors with ulterior
motives? Why can't robots be taken for what they are.
Artificially intelligent creatures who are PROGRAMMED
to serve humanity.
Whether it be household chores, factory work or the
defense of our great nation, robots will someday be a
valued members of our modern society.
Think about it. You can program them to vacuum your
carpet, pick your kids up from school, make a
sandwich, go to home depot... any manner of things.
A coffee maker is a robot.
Think about it:
"I want a cup of coffee. No, make that seven. I
wan't seven cups of coffee. I want those seven cups
at 6:55 AM. I want seven cups of coffee,
extra-strong. I want the coffee maker to beep me a
warning signal when the requisite cups have been
brewed. I want those seven cups to be kept warm at a
temperature of 103 degrees fareinheit until I have
drunk every drop of hot coffee." Etc... Etc...
That is robotics. Plain and simple.
Is that so dangerous? Are you afraid of your Mr.
Coffee now? Are you switching to tea? No, you are
not. You love your little coffee robot.
Now a robot is not to be confused with an android.
Androids are humanoid robots. Programmed to behave
just like a human being. Facial expressions,
emotions, even defacation.
The potential for evil being perpetrated in the world
is much greater coming from an android rather than
from a coffee maker.
Androids could, even now, be walking among us.
Probably the creation of another race. And i don't
mean the Chinese. I mean aliens. Aliens would
definitely have the technology to make a humanoid
android. One that could fit seamlessly into modern
day society and yet be beaming up information about
humanity to the mother-ship. Look around you. Now
look around you again. Now look around you A G A I N.
Think about it.
