At first the headline grabs your attention, but then you read the story and find out that the man who died built the killer robot specifically to kill himself.
I’m sorry, but that is so badass.
He was an 81-year old man who’s out of state relatives wanted to put him in a nursing home, because they were selfish bastards. So he decided to show them what-for by killing himself.
But he was a geek. Poison, hanging, slitting of the wrists? That’s amateur stuff. He wanted to go in style, and so he did. He built a robot to shoot him in the head with a .22 automatic.
What I want to know is what are they going to do with the killer robot now?
