    Some people are taking the whole "SkyNet" thing a bit to far in regards to unfounded fears.

    Yeah, I'm more scared of my toaster than I am of machines controlling the world. :/

    Exactly! The odds of bread crumbs left at the bottom of a toaster leading to a house fire are much greater than the odds are of a Predator UAV deciding one day to overthrow its human masters. :p

    Finally, someone gets it! I mean, seriously, imagine you have that toaster plugged in and a tiny piece of the metal is showing from the outlet. Then while you is toastin your Eggo waffles, you spill your most wonderful cup of joe. BAM!

    That compared to a pile of wires and bolts suddenly becoming conscious......yeah. Damn that toaster is scary.
