Yes - (In its own right) - This 3-hour robot-technology documentary was interesting enough. And, yes, it was certainly well-worth a view, for the most part.....

But, what I'd sure like to know is - When the heck is man going to stop tinkering around with all of his shiny, new toys and finally get around to solving some of his more pressing social problems that, right now, are in a total state of back-log (such as poverty, crime, and mental illness)?

And, speaking about "social problems" - I'd say that this computer/robotic age of ours is clearly contributing, big-time, to human indifference like you wouldn't believe - Or - Haven't you yet noticed all of those people out there texting madly away on their precious, little iphones and not paying the least bit of attention to what's going on around them?... Sheesh!

I mean - When it comes to the likes of today's ever-advancing, technological breakthroughs - Yes. It all looks so impressive on the surface - But, in reality - Is it really making our existence as human beings a better experience?... Well?.... Is it?
