Saturday and I will do nothing but flipping relax…..I try not to dig into current events on my weekends……I just want some time away from the silliness we call the news.
I was sitting there in my easy chair watching the news when an ad came on……there is a company that offers security patrol services, warrant serving, tracking down vandals, parking lot security, etc, etc…..all this is nothing unusual until you see the rest of the story……it is all done with robots…..

Recently a regular reader told me about a machine that makes your Sushi for you……sorry not an idea that gives me a warm fuzzy feeling…..I do not eat raw fish….fuzzy or otherwise…..and then I read about “Flippy”…….
After months of practice in the art of fast food preparation, “Flippy,” has finally taken up a position as grill cook on the line at Caliburger’s Pasadena, Calif., restaurant.
“It’s not a fun job — it’s hot, it’s greasy, it’s dirty,” acknowledges John Miller, the CEO of Cali Group, which runs the international fast food chain.
Even so, it could be the beginning of a bright career for Flippy in an industry that is otherwise notorious for high employee turnover.
It certainly helps that Flippy, a burger-flipping robot developed by Miso Robotics, shows no concern about the low wages, meager benefits or long hours that plague the industry. The robot is reportedly capable of grilling 150 burgers per hour.
I get why the auto industry replaced $30 dollar an hour worker with robots…..but now they want to take away the minimum wage jobs also……never fear we all are replaceable and soon.
Time to finish my day with relaxation and some wine…..peace out…..chuq
