Well, then i'll put my brain in a robot body. That always seems to work.

There's a Little Britain skit about that, cannot find it on youtube though.

You're more work than you're worth. Considering all the things you need to stay alive, food, warmth, a place to , then the labour saved is outweighed by the stuff you need to keep you alive. Plus, you'll die pretty quickly. Better to just kill you now and be done with it.

True this. That's why I was thinking of putting my brain in a robot body even if there's no robot uprising. It would certainly release a pretty big burden.

It reminds me of the intro to Total Annihilation.

"In what started as the transfering of consciousness from flesh to machine has resulted in a war that has lasted a millenia and decimated thousands of worlds" (Or something to that effect).

Remember that episode of Doctor Who, when all those people were turned into Cybermen, then the Doctor disabled their emotion inhibitor? And then they all started screaming "I'M SO COLD" and died from sheer misery? Yeah, the whole "robot body" thing probably isn't such a great idea.

When I first read this my mind inserted a different swear word to the one you intended. I thought "Well, I guess so, but it wouldn't be my first priority and anyway, all the other humans are dead, who am I gonna be ing?"

Well, if it's a choice between that and getting slowly incinerated by a Terminator, then it's a risk i'm willing to take.

As we're all taking Doctor Who as scientific fact (and it's about time we did) the Cybermen retain no noticeable trace of their human personality or memories so effectively it wouldn't be you in there, just bits of meat that were once a part of you.
