Roomba Commits Suicide

(YouTube link)

In a very 21st-century story, a Roomba was working all alone in a home wired with security cameras. A stray plastic bag somehow became draped over the Roomba's sensors. It ran into a wall, but that action neither freed it of the obstruction nor put it out of his misery. One commenter filled in the story:

While being trapped in the bag, it gained sentience and grasped the purpose of its existence. Thus it threw itself to oblivion.

But look! The Roomba wasn't alone after all. Could it have been a case of murder? After all, who is most likely to leave a plastic bag on the floor -a cat, of course! Let's hope the authorities crack the case and bring the perpetrator to justice. -via Laughing Squid

I have a Roomba. What a waste of money, IMO. I have 2 dogs that shed a lot of fur so the hair clogs up that machine quickly. Can't even do one room before it needs help. Then you have to disassemble the thing to unclog the hair and then put it back together again. Finally bought a wonderful, low noise, strong suction vacuum cleaner and it's so much better now.
