The robot had the ability to detect lies and would slap the person who lied. Kyle returned late from school
Dad asked, Son why are you late from school?
Dad, we had extra classes today, the robot slapped Kyle on his face.
Dad shouted, "come on tell me the truth, why are you late?"
Dad, I went to see the movie Ten Commandments, Kyle got another slap from the robot.
Sorry dad, I went to see the movie "Red HotQueen".
"Shame on you son, when I was your age, I never watched obscene movies or misbehaved",........ immediately, he gets a hot slap on the face from
the robot.
Kyle's mom comes walking out of the kitchen and says to her husband... "After all, he's your son!"
the robot steps up and slaps Kyle's momOpen-mouthed


Barbara Walters of Television's 20/20 did a story on gender roles in Kabul, Afghanistan, several years before the Afghan conflict.

She noted that women customarily walked 5 paces behind their husbands.

She recently returned to Kabul and observed that women still walk behind their husbands.

From Ms. Walter's vantage point, despite the overthrow of the oppressive Taliban regime,

the women now seem to walk even further back behind their husbands and are happy to maintain the old custom.
Ms. Walters approached one of the Afghani women and asked,

'Why do you now seem happy with the old custom that you once tried so desperately to change?'
The woman looked Ms. Walters straight in the eyes, and without hesitation said, 'Land Mines.'
