Melissa Dimock ‏@refashionista People used to meet on the Internet -- how quaint! Now we're auto-matched at birth by genetic compatibility testing.

Andrea Beça ‏@contessabessa No, I'm serious. There was a time when dogs didn't speak English. We thought they liked when we dressed them up!

Mark Purdy ‏@markpurdy So, the singularity happened... and I'm still single... Good news is my robot leader is using me as her "toy"

Kyle Sergeant ‏@KSergeant86 You go to Tim Horton's. You sit. They strap you in. It's injected. You're good for thirty days.

MJ Terrell ‏@mjlterrell  Earth's first murder committed by an Android! Watch the live court trial here.

Sherry ‏@sdramsey Nanny 'bot botches the diaper change, and cleaner 'bot misses a spot on the floor. Do I have to do EVERYTHING around here?

Earl J. Woods ‏@EarlJWoods First Canadian immigrant to Mars colony complains "Even with terraforming the weather here is worse than Winnipeg in January"

Mark A. Rayner ‏@markarayner Everyone on the space elevator just keeps standing shoulder to shoulder, not talking. It's creepy and it lasts for HOURS.
