What were they thinking?

A friend sent me a link to a Gizmodo article about a team of scientists in Switzerland who created robots that can tell lies. Excuse me? Do these guys have any idea how much time HOUSEWORK takes? Telling a lie is dead easy. Scrubbing the kitchen floor, now that's real work. Get those robots going on something useful!

It seems the robots in question were in fact competing for "food" and lied to trick their fellow bots so they could have the food themselves. It does sound a lot like people fighting over the last Tickle Me Elmo on the shelf.

"...a team of scientists in Switzerland who have created robots that can tell lies."

That horse has left the barn. Someone needs to tell the Swiss that Ari Fleischer, Scott McClellan and Dana Perino have already been invented.

Hmmm. Maybe it's in the job description?
