Have you ever been in a position where you have to pronounce a bunch of lyrics real fast during a live performance, but kinda stumble through it so rigidly that you literally look like a malfunctioning robot? No? Thought that was a more common problem.

In lieu of having fans in the stadium, the Japanese baseball team Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks has opted for a robot song and dance number that is about as technically intriguing as it is creepy.

Well, this is absolute gold and we love it. Can't blame James May for losing it during the robot's guided tour.

Texts from Students Who Had to Take Care of Electronic Babies

Depending on where you went to school and what classes you took, you may have had a project where you had to take care of a sack of flour as if it were a child, or in this case, a robotic doll programmed to cry. Based on how frustrating these things can be, we're not sure if these projects were designed to be a learning experience so much as birth control. It doesn't take simulated parenting to know that kids are weird and dumb, and that toddlers have meltdowns over nothing, but having a robot baby wake up in the middle of the night might be a literal wake-up call for a high school freshman.

Just a little bit terrifying picturing some sort of dystopian reality where these impressive "Spot" robots turn on us. No thank you to that.

If we woke up to this we'd probably be convinced that the house was haunted. So it's a good thing there was cameras running to capture the magic. We understand that a stack of Roombas is a trivial thing, but seriously, what are the odds?

Writer Tweets Hilarious "Bot Written" John Wick Script

Comedy writer @Keatonpatti tweeted a few pages of a John Wick movie supposedly written by a robot. We're not sure if there's a thousand hours of John Wick out there but what he's produced is on point, action packed, and amazing. He's also released these hilarious "bot written" Olive Garden and Diners Drive-Ins and Dives scripts. Technology is amazing.

If you're wondering what the end of the world looks like, this is it. But nah, this is just the handiwork of some good old CGI. Doesn't mean it still isn't hilarious and unsettling.

Well this is an experience. Oh man you guys, he was right, it's all a simulation. This machine learning AI model even learned to generate timing and breaths to sound closer to the real thing. For us, it felt like the real thing when he got into all that talk about chimps. Chimp obsession is some patented Joe Rogan.

25 Obscure Conspiracy Theories That People Personally Believe In

In a world with well-known dumbass conspiracies like flat earth "theory" and the anti-vaxx movement, mention of conspiracies can be a bit stressful. Some of them are smaller, more specific, and personal. And while many are sort of silly, the more you think about them, the more believable they seem...

We've never seen anything like this before. The amount of grace in this laser guided robot is superhuman. Sure it's just in a product demo, but Boston Dynamics should watch out if this robot hits the market soon.

Writer Tweets Hilarious Script for "Bot Written" Hallmark Christmas Movie

Hilariously creative writer Keaton Patti is at it again with the opening pages to a script he claims were written by a computer algorithm. He's done this before with a Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives script as well as an Olive Garden Commercial. At this point we know there is no computer program, and it's just Keaton's absurdist style, but he nails it perfectly.
