What do you think robot jail is?

A blank white room with no other data input and no companions.
A room that's 10% grey with only a T.V. with a picture of a beach and place the same slow muzzak on loop.
The above option except it loops every episode of Barney and Friends.
An endless stream of legal code in the driest, dullest possible wording.
An empty black room.
Three A.I. together in an empty featureless room 'Hell is other people' style.
None of the above (describe your answer if you want to)

Why tie a tie when there are clip ons and possibly magnetic for AIs?

Fun :police: fact: IRL cops usually do wear clip on ties for safety reasons. Don't want someone grabbing it and choking you.

Yup, or a "break-away" with a velcro tab.

I suppose it’s not a problem for Roko since she doesn’t have to be concerned with strangulation.

I couldn't guess at an average, but the degree of variation is high.

I find it interesting that I liked Faye from the start, but hated a lot of her behaviour. Now May, whom I never could stand, is exhibiting genuine emotions, but I still can’t bring myself to like her. But I’m warming up to her a bit. What is going on inside my head I wonder? ETA: Human emotions I suppose.

Still could be used against her to control where her head and neck are.

Could we just get rid of ties? Unless we want to wear them, of course. But they seem to serve no real purpose other than serving as a message to the old school. And they have their own signals, and don't need ties.

It depends on a few things.  Working rotating shifts with duties that seem to actively conspire against regular exercise and a balanced diet doesn't help one iota.  A rookie with a 30" waist can easily be over 40" ten years later.  Everyone likes to point at overweight cops, but take a look at your local paramedics - you'll see the same thing, and for the same reasons.

Where do you work, Thrudd?*  The annual physical business is unheard of in some parts of the country but a regular feature in others.  It's no doubt a good idea, but unions will often oppose it and city councils/county commissions like it best when they can get someone else to pay for the exams.

Strangulation, no. Capture or distration, though? Still a problem.

Annual physical exams are required for positions that require a CDL (commercial drivers license) like I do as a bus driver.
