If CNN says it it must be true!

Reality bytes: Robots could demand independence
POSTED: 9:13 a.m. EST, December 21, 2006

LONDON, England (AP) -- Civil rights for robots? It could be coming.

A study released by the British government says someday robots might become so advanced, they could demand their independence.

The United Kingdom Office of Science and Innovation foresees the day when robots will be able to reproduce and think for themselves.

But don't look for a robot revolution anytime soon.

The study says independence for robots probably won't be much of an issue until the mid-21st century.

As I get older I find myself wishing more often that I was a brazillionaire and could afford to buy a media company just to raise the standard. Currently that standard is low enough for this story to be considered "high brow."

It isn't a documentary, silly goose.

It's reality T.V.
