Anyone can easily remember it, as long as they’ve upgraded their memory capacity to a solid state hard drive. That soggy, squishy biodegradable type that comes standard on humans is obsolete.

I think I’ll pass until they make something with anywhere near the storage space of a brain.

the memory capacity of the human brain has less to do with raw data storage and more with very aggressive compression thats not too particular about loosing a lot of details. The majority of what people remember of even a week ago is a couple of pertinent details of events they found important. The rest will be hazy. You went to work, did work, chatted with coworkers but its doubtful you can remember more than the broad strokes of any particular conversation. Unless it happens to be an important day for you I doubt you remember what you were doing… Read more »

It’s even worse than losing details. Most of what we recall is a few facts and the imagery is created out of our imagination (and long practice) on the spot when we think we are remembering. It also turns out that we aren’t actually aware of what we are thinking at the moment – we kind of guess at what it is from context, but become so practiced that we are not aware of the process, and we imagine that we “hear” our own thoughts as we think them. Which really explains how false memories are so easy to construct… Read more »

Apparently being synthetic makes you a bit of a d**k.

The glorified smart toaster obviously has emotions (as it would be unlikely to enjoy jerking the meatsack’s emotions), but he hasn’t shown any signs of empathy.

He might just be a psychopath.

Well, except for that time he felt bad for making Ethan sad, y’know, when his LED colors changed and he had a feeling he didn’t like. He is a bit of a dick for sure though, but then, most children and teenagers are absolute assholes themselves. Some of them grow out of it, some don’t, psychopath or no.

Guess I’ve been lucky. My 13 year old daughter might not always recognize when something that amuses her might be off putting for others, but she’s never ever been terribly d*ck-ish. She’d rather help people and be a good friend than engage in social warfare or one upwomanship.

I do have several families of friends of ours where the teenage boys might well fit your description though. And I suspect from what my daughter’s female pals are like that some of them would fit that too. I guess we’re very lucky (well, I know that for certain).

A psychopath is just someone that never grows out of being a child emotionally. That’s not the wording used, but that is the actual definition in Psychology. They used to be called “emotionally retarded” before that term became so pejorative that it fell out of use in technical jargon.

You know, “they” has been quite abusive with “their” “neighbors”. I guess “they” deserve some slack, but frankly Ethan and Lucas have done nothing but giving “them” a chance, even when common sense would be to simply hade destroyed “them” when they could.

Okay, genuine confusion… what’s with all the quotes. Emphasizing that they don’t have a proper name yet or something? Neighbors as a quote because its kinda close but not quite right for their relationship makes sense, but the rest have me at a loss.

Hs’s lacking in empathy and understanding and bit emotionally retarded just like our AI friend here. There’s quite a few people out and about right now that are so concerned with what’s in other people pants that they just can’t think straight. Fortunately they are only a vocal minority.

“I should choose a name that really connects with me…” “Ethan.”

He may have been messing with Ethan there, but he really just outed how much Ethan means to him.

Wait until Cupplebranch Plunderthicket finds out about middle names. Or like the example given, how humans deliberately butcher them.
