I would trust this guy a lot more than any Wall Street banker. Guys with short hair and no facial hair all look alike just like clones. The reason Wall Street bankers have short hair, no facial hair and wear suits it to make it harder to identify the ones that stole my retirement account money since they all look alike. I often find guys that look and dress like this guy to be more fun to be around and easier to talk too.

Most of the time when I give out a phone number to a business it goes to a land line with a call screen-er attached. My friends get the cell phone number. This device asks people the type in a number like an office extension. I wipes out nearly all automated calls, wrong numbers that don't speak English and midnight drunks. You might be able to program some smartphones to do this.

The Robot: The Robot is a Class M-3 Model B9, General Utility Non-Theorizing Environmental Control Robot, which had no given name. Although a machine endowed with superhuman strength and futuristic weaponry, he often displayed human characteristics such as laughter, sadness, and mockery as well as singing and playing the guitar. The Robot was performed by Bob May in a prop costume built by Bob Stewart. The voice was dubbed by Dick Tufeld, who was also the series' narrator. The Robot was designed by Robert Kinoshita, whose other cybernetic claim to fame is as the designer of Forbidden Planet's Robby the Robot. Robby appears in LIS #20 "War of the Robots", and the first episode of season three; "Condemned of Space".
