leaps forward

Now here’s progress, robots for teaching English in kinda. It was just last Monday that I was fantasising about having a conversation with my university students where I told them that one day in the future they would have a robot teaching them instead of me. Then I imagined the robot: it would be about 8 feet tall, shiny metal and if those students at the back kept talking out of turn, the robot’s hand would morph, Transformers-like, into a fat laser and blast their slack arses into smouldering, vaporised nothing.

Meanwhile, in the future I will be living on Mars with Elon Musk and a select group of other really cool people.

  1. … and of course Mars is very cool in more ways than one.

  2. I like the morphing hand. Would you be controlling the robot remotely while sipping green tea on a beach in Thailand?
