so i just had a job interview for a healthcare position having absolutely nothing to do with anything vaguely sci-fi at all but the hiring manager asked me if tomorrow i had a robot that i could make do anything what would i pick for it to do?
i presume job candidates who are not bizarre would say “cure all disease” or something
but because I CAN’T STOP MYSELF i asked if said robot would have a consciousness, full artificial intelligence, etc
the confused interviewer said sure
and because SERIOUSLY I CAN’T STOP MYSELF
i went on a long-winded argument about how i wouldn’t make the robot do anything because robot consciousness and feelings are still valid even if artificially constructed PEOPLE I LITERALLY WENT ON A RANT ABOUT THE HYPOTHETICAL EXPLOITATION OF ROBOTS
I COMPLETELY FAILED TO DEMONSTRATE WHY I WAS QUALIFIED FOR THE JOB BUT I DID INFORM THEM OF WHAT SIDE I WOULD BE ON IN A POTENTIAL FUTURE HUMAN-ROBOT WAR
