Robots that "stutter" along, because they run Windows 98
(+1, -1)
  [vote for,

Just for a giggle, lets make Robots that use Windows 98 as their operating system. Then for no apparent reason they would suddenly stop, then jerk along for a bit, stop, jerk, jerk, then very slowly get up to normal speed again. Can you imagine the Robot egg timer, your egg will be ready in 10, no, 245,876, no, 50, no I mean 746 minutes, no I mean seconds.

       Yeah and just like windows half way through adding paint to your tint, it jerks, jerks again, and you ended up not adding enough paint cause you think its finished, like when you click in the wrong place when your pc does the hippy hippy shake...
