Free will, or free from pain

Oh fine, I posted about this story last Sunday, but at the time I hadnt read the last few chapters, and seen the interesting way that the story culminated. Oh, the link for those unable to scroll back one week…

https://mcstories.com/OutOfMindControl/index.html

Given it can hardly be too much of a spoiler, for those who bothered to read it, Lilly might have got turned into a mindlessly obedient robot (which lets face it, I’d love, but most wouldnt), but events led to Trish getting a new robot body, but getting a pretty decent degree of sentience, even if I’m suspect that if someone wanted to control her mind, they probably could.

The hypothetical question for people like me (or even more disabled than me), is, given the choice, which would you prefer to choose? Pain free life, but in a ‘robot’ body, technically with sentience, though open to being controlled, or to have a free mind, and have to live with the pain?

I know, I’m not the best person to make a call on this, because lets face it, to get rid of all my pain, I’d take the Lilly option, lets face it, but hey, the Trish option would be absolute heaven! But would others do the same, or would they prefer their pain, but keep their free will, and a human body, hmm?

I know that for most of my readers, you have to try and imagine how painful, or limiting life is for some, but even then, if something happened to you, what level of disability would it take for you to take the Trish option (I’m assuming no one other than me would take the Lilly option), rather than carry on in pain, or is it just a total no go?

Comments here, on Facebook, Twitter, or to robotunit8@hotmail.com if you want to keep it private, or cant find the middle two, would be lovely, just saying. Not going to hold my breath for replies, but someone new might surprise me!

Video time. What you will need to do, in this theoretical exercise.

The easy way to create a pop group?

OK, fine, let me say before any greedy musical producers get any ideas, this concept (as far as I know) is purely fictional, but, given how often pop groups have been created, both now, and in the past, well…? Yes, story blog time again.

https://mcstories.com/WeaverTunesGirlGroup/index.html

Of course, the irony here, through bias, is that the video isnt a girl group, but anyway…

Beyond briefly, in a tribute group, as a teen, I’ve never been in any pop groups in my life. That was a relatively brief, fun experience, but not one I’m ever going to replicate now, lets face it. No, I wouldnt have a clue where any other member of that group was now for the so called revival tour, after nearly 45 years! Of course, using the method in the story, I guess its not beyond the realms of possibility that I could be transformed into a stunning, sexy young woman, and be lead singer of a group, but I wouldnt put any money on it, lol! For me, it was just a brief fun thing, between acting stuff, and never anything more, but so many have made it, or not made it over the years, I guess?

Question I ask is, are manufactured groups really any worse than the standard way of forming a pop group anyway? Many are just groups of friends who thought they could work together (some did, some didnt), and just saw where it took them. For most, at best, a brief moment of fame, for most, not even that. Obviously some made it big (apt one would be Spice Girls), all the same.

Me, I’m glad I performed, even at a lower level in life, but I cant say the whole pop music thing offers much attraction to me. Of course, if like this, or otherwise, the chance arose, I might think differently. More likely I suspect musicals would have appealed to me, but anyway.

But yes, all the same, if someone wants to use Weaver Tunes, and play me ‘The Most Beautiful Girl In The World’, I wouldnt complain! Wont hold my breath, mind.

Right, video time. I know, a manufactured boy group, so its partly there at least. But I love this song, cant think of any other way I’d fit in here, so…

Sitting in my dream office?

Well, its back to the office tomorrow, though sadly, it wont be anything like this place!

https://mcstories.com/OutOfMindControl/index.html

Just to say, if you’re limited for reading time, Chapter 6 would appeal a lot to be done to me! I know, only person who would enjoy that, but besides all that…

In truth, I suspect that a few decades into the future, I suspect this method may well be used in some offices, especially for the more mind numbing duties, and yes, call centre work would definitely qualify for that! Oh please, computer controlled drone for work, then go home at night with free will, mmm? Oh, and those suits they get to wear sound quite something too! Oh fine, that free will thing at night, maybe we could come to an arrangement on that?

Sadly, no, for those of us with just about a maximum of 5 and a half years to go to retirement, its not going to happen in that period of time, I only wish it would!

Oh, and in the previously mentioned chapter 6, lets just say the lucky lady gets an upgrade on just being a  mindless drone for work, and fine, I’d be the only person jealous of her for that!

Yes, lets face it, I couldnt get my CV in quickly enough for a job, if that was for real! Let me just add, I’m yet to read this weeks update, so please, no one post on here how it ends, OK? But equally, if anyone wants to offer me a job, just like that, please post quickly! 😉

Right, video time. No, you’re not likely to find an office on a backyard fence, but we need some 30’s musicals love around here. Dick Powell, and Ruby Keeler might be the stars, but yes, one of those in the cat costumes, yes, its Clara! You do get a better view of her very briefly late in the video, just saying…

 

Beware the Devil Woman?

Apologies, running late tonight, so something hopefully, short, but delicious for you? Yes, story moment time! This one..,

https://mcstories.com/NewWorldComicsLadyDevil/index.html

This author seems to provide an eclectic mix of the sort of stories I love, and ones I’m most definitely not a fan of. This, I have to say, is one of the former. Let me say I have no idea if Lady Devil is a real character in the comic world, or not, I’m really not up on such matters? Must say that would make an interesting transformation for me! But yes, fine, if that guy happens to have a statue of the robot, from Metropolis, maybe I should go and buy it, lol? 😉 Mind, an Austin Power fembot might be more sexy fun?

So fine, if it was leading to a transformation of yourself, which fictional character would it be? Not expecting a rush of answers, but a few might be fun, just saying…?

Video time. Well, what did you expect but a Devil woman?

Don’t speak, just function

I know, there is no actual programmed rule in my system that says I have to post a blog here, if posting in the other one, but snag is, I just feel guilty if I dont. So given I had something else to discuss over there, I need to post something here,…bleep,…so…

I had to admit that, before reading this, I wondered how it was going to work into the robot tag that it has https://mcstories.com/RedButtons/index.html but fine, it fooled me.

Oh fine, why can’t I find a partner that thinks in the same way as he does? OK, this is fiction, but I would have thought that this, as hypnosis was pretty much possible? Might take a while to successfully ‘download’, but doable, cant see why not? Alright, I cant find anyone insane enough to want me as a partner, let alone one who wants a robot girlfriend, but yes, this might just be fun. I know, not perfect for a real robot wannabee like me, but as a consolation prize, it might do?

Fine, I’d love to look less like a human, and more like a robot than her, but a woman cant have everything, and lets face it, if programmed correctly, I wouldnt be able to object anyway, lol!

Yes, all they say about not pressing red buttons (and we sure dont want that idiot, Trump to push one), but this is one I wouldnt mind being aimed in my direction, and pressed.

Video time. I was trying to think about something that suggested not speaking, just functioning, and remember this 90’s classic

The only way I’ll fall in love?

Well, fine, for a while last night, I thought tonight’s blogging would be easy. Memories of the previous time that England were in a World Cup Final, 52 years ago, and all that. They were even winning when I got home, but things went downhill from there, so instead you get this…! Yes, resisting being rude about that Orange faced Russian guy visiting here from the US, trying to be good!

So instead, lacking any great subject matter, lets rely on that good old back up idea, a look at one of this week’s stories. This one, in fact

https://mcstories.com/MagicTinder/index.html

Now, as my regular followers know, my views on Smart Phones, Apps, and the like, is pretty much that I dont know, and I dont care about them. But still, this amused me. You can guess I dont know a lot (or less) about Tinder, but I gather its some sort of dating thing, where you do one thing with the picture if interested in someone, and do the opposite if not? Then if they feel the same way about you…? One things for sure, even if I was on it, the chances of anyone being interested in me, matches my chances of flying to Alpha Centauri in an alien spacecraft, at light speed! 😛

So fine, a story where if you fancy someone on this Tinder thing, that they have to reciprocate, has to amuse me. No, I dont think I could be that cruel to anyone, but apart from that… Well, if I could get Rotwang to give me the Maria makeover, then maybe, but otherwise…

Let me say that beyond this fictional, magical version of Tinder, I have no idea if it works, or not? I cant believe it does for anyone, but maybe for some…? Besides which, I suspect most of the people I’d be attracted to, of a suitable age for me, probably arent on Tinder either! So fine, if thats what smart phones are like (and fine, I know, in real life, they’re not), another reason for me not to bother to get one!

So, if any wealthy millionaire wants to fall in love with me (ha ha), lets just do it the old fashioned way, OK? 😉 If he then wants to turn me into an obedient, Stepford type wife, no complaints from me!

Alright, video time. This guy is probably remembered by most for one song, classically used as a ‘Rick Roll’ on You Tube. No, its not that song, though it could have been apt. Its his version of the Nat King Cole classic, and its very good, live. Now, if he wants to fancy me on Tinder, either version, I’d have no complaints!

 

If you want milk today?

Well, I guess that on Thursday, the next blog might have to mention some soccer tournament, if the result is right tomorrow night, but other than that, I’m running a bit low on ideas now I’m producing 3 blogs a week, for 2 blogs, so if anyone has any subject matter they want discussed, with weird being fine, feel free to suggest away!

I have mentioned that as the calendar moves on through the years, the number of weird appreciation days seems to grow to the point where, very shortly, we will probably have about 360 of them! I assume they arent going to top the 2 at Easter, the 2 at Christmas, and New Years Day, but otherwise…?

Anyway, for better, or for worse, and its probably for worse, it seems today is Cow Appreciation Day. Yes, really, I suspect some agriculture, or farm group came up with that one! But yes, why focus on that, you ask? Well, for a bit of silliness, I guess?

In the US, there is a restaurant group called Chick Fil-A or something like that? Given the ‘love’ their bosses have for all matters relating to LGBT, lets just say I’d be unlikely to eat there, and leave it at that. No, to my knowledge, on all my visits to the US, I never have! But today, they’re doing one thing that I’d just love to do, as I’m never the type to say no to a free meal!

Basically, as much as I can tell, anyone going into one of their restaurants tonight, wearing anything that makes them look like a cow, or presumably cow related clothing, gets a free entree! Yes, me, I’d want to go the whole way, wear the full cow suit, for the principal, and yes, for the fun of it as well! Oh, and ideally, be milked, properly, just like a cow would be! Oh fine, the udders they would use would probably be the fake ones, and besides, I doubt they could get any milk, out of my ‘milk teats’ nowadays, anyway! But if they wanted to try…? 😉 Always fancied, for some reason that nowadays, I have no idea why (stimulation, maybe?) being milked like that. Dont know where I got that idea from as a teen, unlike the robot/brainwashing ones, mind.

Yes, funnily enough, I did cover that concept in a story, many years ago too!  https://mcstories.com/DairyUnit/index.html

I will say that the first chapter is far better than the second one, as that was just a throw on I was requested to do, when the story took off!

But yeah, regardless of said Restaurant Group, if anyone has a cow suit they want me to wear, or want to ‘milk me’ properly, then let me know, moo! Either here, or robotunit8@hotmail.com, if you prefer.

Right, video time. Lets see, cows, milk, well…sad to think I remember this song, and its over 50 years old. Firstly, the famous version

Secondly, a more recent version by the gentleman (and friends) who wrote the song. You might remember him as part of 10 cc, or maybe not?
