Yesterday evening FWIW’s village idiot Dollar Bill posted the following:
The vast majority of restaurant personnel, including those making mi.minimum wage or subminimum wage, cannot be replaced by robots, as should be obvious to all but cracked Randbots.
Since the irreplaceableness of unskilled hamburger flippers was not obvious to this Randbot, I asked Bill to defend his proposition. So far, he has not; he cannot*, just as he’s been unable to define concepts like “fair share” and “greed” or to answer a single question posed to him by readers challenging whatever particular inanity Bill uttered .
Which is why I keep Bill around: he serves as a perfect example of how the modern progressive mush-mind is programmed to avoid argument. They’re trained by example to employ discussion-ending phrases and catchwords, like “racist”, “sexist”,”homophobic” “common sense”, “everyone knows” and, as Bill sputtered yesterday, “obvious”.
But, while Alisnki knew exactly what he was doing, a person of low intelligence like Bill isn’t let in on the game, nor need he be. Beginning in grammar school and continuing through college these sheeple are shaped into intellectual dullards, useful to their masters but incapable of independent thought. I could go on, but we’ve all met this mass – they’re our reporters, Hollywood stars, teachers and local politicians. Bill’s at the lowest end of this spectrum – he’s one of the dolt you see sticking up campaign signs on roadways during elections, a job designed to fill their need to feel important and involved while removing them from headquarters.
So no, I wasn’t expecting an answer from Bill because I know he’s not capable of providing one. He’s trained to throw his phrases out and stand back as they cow his fellow sheeple into silence. When that doesn’t work he is, as we see, at a loss for words.
* While Bill’s silence is attributable to his defective lizard stem, the facts are against him as well.
No longer will they say, “He’s going to end up flipping burgers.” Because now, robots are taking even these ignobly esteemed jobs. Alpha machine from Momentum Machines cooks up a tasty burger with all the fixins. And it does it with such quality and efficiency it’ll produce “gourmet quality burgers at fast food prices.”
With a conveyor belt-type system the burgers are freshly ground, shaped and grilled to the customer’s liking. And only when the burger’s finished cooking does Alpha slice the tomatoes and pickles and place them on the burger as fresh as can be. Finally, the machine wraps the burger up for serving.
And while you fret over how many people you invited to the barbecue, Alpha churns out a painless 360 hamburgers per hour.
San Francisco-based Momentum Machines claim that using Alpha will save a restaurant enough money that it pays for itself in a year, and it enables the restaurant to spend about twice as much on ingredients as they normally would – so they can buy the gourmet stuff. Saving money with Alpha is pretty easy to imagine. You don’t even need cashiers or servers. Customers could just punch in their order, pay, and wait at a dispensing window.
