Hacked sex robots could be used to kill people

Sex robots could be hijacked by hackers and used to cause harm or even kill people, a cybersecurity expert has warned. Artificial intelligence researchers have consistently warned of the security risks posed by internet-connected robots, with hundreds recently calling on governments to ban weaponized robots. The latest warning comes from a cybersecurity expert who made the prophecy to several U.K. newspapers. "Hackers can hack into a robot or a robotic device and have full control of the connections, arms, legs and other attached tools like in some cases knives or welding devices," Nicholas Patterson, a cybersecurity lecturer at Deakin University in Melbourne, Australia, told the Star.

This is exactly why I had to break up with my last robot. Let's just leave it at that.

Not sure it's a bad thing if both Miss America and Wonder Woman robots, ah, you know, double up on a dude like me, before killing me ...

What a way to go ~

Something you have sex with can possibly kill you? Sounds like marriage.

This is the best --------- ever!

1. Make sure they got smelly feet.

2. Make them stand near doggy door.

3. Wait for Private First Class to start his nightly boot licking mission.

4. Turn on live YouTube feed.

5. Observe as Private First Class sticks head through doggy door to smell feet.

6. WHAMMO!

7. Try not to die laughing.

I've caught a virus from a robot prostitute.

Is it an STD?

No, it's a trojan horse.

As a rule I avoid sex robots that have attached tools like knives or welding devices.
