This concept scares me more than giant bugs coming back from extinction and even more than Jesus clones

I'm all for it. God bless genius scientists and eccentric billionaires who are mortified of mortality: they'll save us all, someday. I hope... Death, you terrifying son of a bitch.

Mmmnn, Do you think that by that time there will be financial equality? Otherwise the rich will have the kickass awesome robots, while the poor are left with crappy, faulty entry level tech. Or maybe the brain level will determine the robot status. Then finally intelligence will determine outward beauty. One could safely approach a hot and sexy robot and rest assured that the conversation will be as scintillating as the appearance.

It boggles my mind that the nerds who create the robots might permit this to happen. Wouldn't it be more likely that they would design the attractive robots to be exclusively turned on by people with pocket protectors?
