I, Robot (am a douchebag)

I want computers to be sentient.
I really do.

Not for the convenience. Not because I want the scifi future we've been raised with to become a reality. No. I want it so that when I scream obscenities at my computer, it will take it personally. When I scream "LOAD! LOAD, YOU SON OF A BITCH!", I want my computer to respond with "Sorry, please don't bring the hose out again."

I want my computer to fear me.
Also, proprietary software is bad. That is all.

  1. Old friend, that kind of thinking leads to the Robocalypse. What happens when the computer decides that, rather than let you turn the hose it, it will instead turn the hose on YOU?* And the hose is full of acid and spiders? Then where will we be? Unless Christian Bale can help us, we'd be SCREWED.

    *In Soviet Russia, computer turns hose on YOU.
