One would have to be utterly retarded to allow a homicidal AI spy bot into one’s home. Especially a home with children in it.

The girl’s mother posted a tweet on Monday describing how her daughter had been doing some cold-weather indoor challenges set by a phys. ed. teacher on YouTube and was seeking another one. To the woman’s shock, Alexa suggested a “simple” task it had found on the web, whereby the participant “plug[s] in a phone charger about halfway into a wall outlet, then touch[es] a penny to the exposed prongs.”

It has it all – a tweetz, Youboob, and AI Alexa the evil robot. The real surprise here is that a modern student was exercising. Might I suggest the old hammer-Alexa-to-pieces challenge?
