  1. "People don't have buttons and a computer does."

    I don't know… I push people's buttons all the time. And two of them are the most important when dealing with the female species.

  2. A computer is a highly efficient porn storage system….and life stealing World of Warcraft entertainment system….what are those things? You will learn soon enough. MWHAHAHAHAHA!!!

  3. That last part sounds like a white power rally. This will be considered discrimatory in several years. This is a Robot’s “Roots”. “Say your name robot.” “Jonny, Jonny 5.” Wack!

  4. 1984 "you can write on and press buttons" and “you can make pictures with it, and it helps you to read.”
    2011 "you can play games, and watch funny videos, and play games, and look at pictures, and play games."

  5. Oh my gawd. I went to that elementary school until 2nd grade! I am a couple years younger than those kids, but I absolutely remember those computer programs.
