The 1950’s saw a boom of popular Sci-Fi movies both big budget and shall we say “shoe string” budget. After the war there was a look to the skies and beyond. Rockets ships, that were basically children’s toys with sparklers taped to the backs, took us to different worlds. Scary and weird aliens tried to get devour us at every chance they got. Asteroids would hurl towards us seeking to obliterate the planet. The constant threat of being conquered loomed heavy over our hero. But the one thing that scared us the most, and still haunts our Sci-Fi today, is Robots. Unfeeling, uncaring, unstoppable, unemotional machines built with nothing in mind but our destruction. Or what’s worse, when WE built them and they turned against us. Emotions are all we have and they mean nothing to them. They’re stronger, faster, smarter, and they only way to stop them is to use a hydraulic press or a vat of molten steel.
But even cold hearted automaton need a break every now and then. A chance to let their hair down, throw Asimov’s Three Rules to the wind, and just cut loose. So for this week’s “Hashtag, You’re It” I asked you to give me some examples of #RobotDrunkTexts It was quite a show. We trended in the U.S. and the U.K. So check out the top ten list below and don’t forget to join me every Tuesday at 10 am Central for the next “Hashtag, You’re It”
