Battlebots/RobotWars vs. Bum Fights

Okay, so the title of this post is a little off-mark. I just really wanted it to be true.

Supposedly the little robo-bum in this video (named "Don-8r") is already in use in Scotland and maybe elsewhere, collecting donations for charities. I wonder how it keeps from wandering into the street, and from being stolen... but honestly I kinda think I'd be more trusting to give my spare change to the clean-looking well-programmed droid, than the booze-soaked toothless self-made wreck. Don't worry. I do feel bad.

  2. sometimes I drive around the city, collect homeless people in the back of my van, take them to my basement, and hold fights. the winner gets to eat, or sometimes I give out pieces of old clothes as prizes. garden tools are weapons.
