What's taking so long for persocoms to be made? There's such a fucking huge market for them that it's not a joke anymore.
Sadly, sex robots will only decrease populations in the first world. Third world nations will continue to explode in population and TERK UR JARBS
I would pay myself into debt to get one.
I'm pretty sure Japanese use them all the time...dunno what you are talking about.
You just want a sex toy who'll do anything you want. Like show you her feet so you can give yourself a footjob, you perv.
Not to worry, third world countries' problems are easily contained with a little fire.
And beneficially, the robots are the one to spread it?
I'd give up my savings for one, that's 40k+.
If I wanted a sex toy, I'd have gotten a lovedoll already.
>TERK UR JARBS
Not everything can be outsourced. Just don't go into a field with a low barrier to entry, like manufacturing.
Yeah, 10,000 might seem a lot upfront, but holy shit is that a cheap price for a person.
Engagement ring: $500 and up
Wedding dress: $1000 and up (used once, unreturnable)
Wedding ring: $500 and up for a pair
Food and gas: endless
No, fire doesn't spread enough to kill massive numbers of people, unless you're thinking of firestorms.
>TERK UR JARBS
it is't your jarb if you were never born.
Let's face it, Mexicans and Iraqis want persacoms too!
WHERE ARE MY FUCKING SEX ROBOTS?
If you're looking just at wedding expenditures, the avg. cost of a wedding in the USA is $28,732 dollars. That does not include the honeymoon or the engagement ring.
that's why the robots will have blow torches ;D
Nothing a little bombing raid can't fix.
The unbelievably high cost of entering into a married life has put me in despair!
Persocoms could also do all the work. All that would be left is high end engineering and creative jobs. Could use a persocom to gather, prepare, serve, and even clean up after the food you eat. Just have some persocom run factory somewhere endlessly churning them out until all menial work is done by those robots.
Granted, this would collapse the economy since 95% of all jobs would be eliminated. But hey.
Robots making robots? ABSURD! Although, it would destroy the possibility for mexicans getting jobs, I'm all for it. There's still plenty of shit robots can't do.
Fuck you /a/, now I'm sad again. I want this to happen.
Browsing the internet, watching TV, playing video games, checking my email, AND molesting a robot, who will then proceed to cook me dinner and clean the house? FUCK.
Shamelessly taken from another website:
Raising Your Child: The Costs
According to the 2005 report from the Department of Agriculture, the cost of raising a child to the age of 17 will be approximately $500,000. These costs include:
Housing is the single greatest expense when it comes to raising a child. Housing expenses include rent payments, mortgage payments, furniture, insurance, and utilities. Depending upon your annual household income and where you live, expect to pay between $200 and $400 per child, per month on housing. This can add up to $100,000 by the time your child turns 17.
Food expenses include the cost of beverages, meals, dining out, groceries, convenience and specialty foods. Most parents will find that the cost of feeding their child will increase as their child ages, hitting a peak around the ages of 12 to 17. Expect to pay between $70 and $260 per child each month on food expenses. This works out to as much as $40,000 over a 17 year period.
Transportation is a necessity for all children, in order to get them to school, the doctor’s office, or to their recreational activities. This category includes the costs of purchasing a vehicle, supplying your vehicle with gas and oil, regular car maintenance, or the cost of public transportation. Depending upon the type of car you drive and the number of children you have, transportation could cost up to $200 every month per child. This adds up to about $30,000 over 17 years.
Clothing is something that you child cannot go without, and, as a result, it is going to make up a significant portion of the cost of raising your child. Clothing expenses include costs for diapers, shirts, pants, suits, seasonal clothing, alterations, and dry cleaning and are generally between $30 and $100 per month. This adds up to about $17,000 once your child turns 17.
Health care costs can vary greatly, depending upon your child’s health and your insurance coverage. Health care costs include medical and dental expenses and insurance premiums, but not the cost of prescription medications and hospitalization. Expect to pay about $15,000 over a 17 year period.
Childcare is one of the biggest expenses for couples raising young children. It includes the costs of babysitting, professional daycare services, and preschool. Expect to pay about $20,000 over 17 years.
Education becomes one of the single greatest expenses of raising a child, particularly once they head off to college. Tuition expenses are becoming very significant, so it is essential to start saving early. Expect to pay between $100,000 and $200,000 for your child’s education.
And this doesn't even include fun or entertainment.
Education is iffy, because public school isn't a small thing, meaning the only things you generally pay for would be like 50 dollars for school supplies each year or less.
College is entirely different.
I for one look forward to looking down on the Proletariats.
......fuck kids and fuck marriage.
Hmm, let's see. Alone and lonely or bankrupt?
Oh, and generally college isn't the parent's money to pay off. All the debts incurred should be the responsibility of the one attending.
Other, more reasonable estimates, put the cost of raising a child at around $250,000 from birth to age 17~18.
All we'd have to do is make sure the robots produce so much excess that no one has to work anywhere.
>entering into a married life
Well played, sir.
Housing: You're gonna be paying for that anyway cause you wanna have a place to live.
Food: Don't feed them.
Transportation: $20 for some chains, problem solved.
Clothing: My old clothes will work, right?
Healthcare/Childcare: Band-aids solve all problems. $10
Eduamacatun: I dunt has one and lok how far i's gots
Grand total: $30
Wait a minute...
Part of the problem the first world is having is that the 'wrong' people are having children. The lower classes are breeding like rabbits (due to social programs) while the middle and upper classes are, on average, having only one or two children per couple (if any.) Thus, creating a burden on the part of society that is not easily replaceable with machines or cheap foreign labor.
No, tissues solve anything. Kaiji agreed. Don't bother him about it.
Kaiji is a pansy cry-baby. I wouldn't trust his word on the solution to my first grade brother's homework, let alone the solution to all life's problems.
Little girl: "Daddy I'm bleeding down there!"
Anon: "Here, have a fucking band aid."
Ah, the beauty of a steel nation...
rich people usually have girlfriends.
