BEING A TEACHER....

BEING A TEACHER IS A DIFFICULT TASK NOWADAYS, SO I DECIDED TO FOLLOW THIS PIECE OF ADVICE BY BRUCE LEE:

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

  2. I think that is a advance for science but a robot never can give a love, can give sex but never love, understanding, sweetie not even children. Also What grace would you have? You buy a robot and have a womer for lifetime, People will not know what it's like to go out to a bar to connect And is one of the best sensations in the world, for this reason and for more i stay with the really women and no with a robot

  3. Technology is progressing so fast and it affects in our life. The technology is changing many all things that around us. For example, the way to do our food, way to transport things or to ourselves, way to see the life, way to read a book or learn in the school, even it has changed the way to have sex.

    Scientists have done sex robots. These dolls are becoming more lifelike and responsive and it is used to many people that need love.

    Foundation for Responsible Robotics has warned that they could be used to simulate rape and other non-consensual actions. This could causes that people that do these things want to do with real people and this is illegal and dangerous.

    I think that these dolls are used by people that need more love but the love is in real people.
