    We are so tuned into body language it is amazing. People don't realize that we notice even the tiniest movements and that sends signals to us.

    I have often thought that many people who feel that they are psychic are actually just highly tuned into reading body language. The feelings they get when they "read" people is actually just reading body language.

    I've noticed the roomba effect becomes even more pronounced with the application of googly eyes, as if where it sits on the scale between Appliance and Pet shifts when it almost but not quite has the beginnings of a face.

    It makes me have a funny feeling when I read these sorts of discussions and everyone is talking about, "Ha, that machine totally fooled us into thinking it was human and it is nothing but a bunch of switches." and never, "Damn, what if we are just a bunch of switches and fooling ourselves most of the time."

    The phone call, we traced it. It's coming from inside your own head!
