    time.

    I drive the very latest hovercar

    I don't know where you are

    But I miss you so much till then

    I met someone who looks a lot like you

    She does the things you do

    But she is an IBM.

    2095, 2095, 2095, 2095

    I love you, sincerely

    Yours truly, yours truly...

    She's only programmed to be very nice

    But she's as cold as ice

    Whenever I get too near

    She tells me that she likes me very much

    But when I try to touch

    She makes it all too clear.

    She is the latest in technology

    Almost mythology

    But she has a heart stone

    She has an I.Q. of 1001

    She has a jumpsuit on

    And she's also a telephone.

    2095, 2095, 2095, 2095

    I love you, sincerely

    Yours truly, yours truly...

    It's just the spirit of the age...

    I would have like you to have been deep frozen too

    and waiting still as fresh in your flesh for my return to earth.

    But your father refused to sign the forms to freeze you,

    let's see you'd be about sixty now and long dead

    by the the time I return to earth.

    My time held dreams were full of you as you were when I left: Still under-age.

    Your android replica is playing up again, it's no joke

    When she comes she moans another's name.

    That's the spirit of the age (spirit of the age)

    It's just the spirit of the age (spirit of the age)

    And that's the spirit of the age (spirit of the age)

    That's the spirit of the age...

    Will the event also look into the possibilities of AI porn?

    By which I mean porn for AI machines. Because if they do start getting mean we'll need something to distract them for long enough to pull the plug on them.

    The thought of stuffing my tackle into a machine is a bit chilly. Especially if it malfunctions. Brings a whole new meaning to BSOD....

    Re. Big Wang Theory

    Yeah, I laughed at that one.

    Funny as heck. The worrying thing is that if something does go wrong while banging the low budget "PARIS" edition with the badly patched Robo-Boink (tm) firmware v1.69b, this could be bad.
