I was wondering, in my technology hell-cavern, if I was a robot, what are the things I would worry about? Low batteries, because that would make me tired. Bad sectors on my hard drives, because that would make me forgetful. Viruses that could make me malfunction, or even go beserk. Hackers who could break into my operating system for criminal purposes. Wear and tear that would make my mechanical parts stiff and unreliable. Obsolescence that would make me useless and not worth maintaining — so that I would end up as scrap in a recycling bin. Seems like my robotic worries would be pretty much like the things I worry about now. - Michael Lipsey
