Concept: the old robot-with-Pinocchio-syndrome bit, except they don’t give a shit about art or love or anything like that; the thing they’re yearning for is something completely off the wall which would never occur to any reasonable human to think of as essential to the human condition, but which the robot is prepared to argue – rigorously, methodically, and at enormous length – is in fact the very heart of what it means to be human.

Some favourites from the notes:

  • Itching
  • Back pain
  • Being bad at video games
  • Freudian slips
  • Cracking open a cold one with the boys
  • Paying taxes
  • Evading taxes
  • The capacity to have cold toes so you have a legitimate reason to wear cool socks
  • Shaving
  • Schadenfreude
  • Seasonal allergies
  • Existential dread

it comes back to tax evasion in the end. it really do be like that
