    You are the one trying to call people robots, remember? There is no chance of a real discussion if you are going to be irrational.

    This truth applies in the societal context. A problem arises when we consider the nature and quality of most people's internal dialog.

    I would defy anyone to spend a significant amount of time with these students - real human beings, not placeholders for simple stereotypes clung to by the weak-minded - and still repeat this asinine "robot" bullshit. That's how false impressions always seem to go.

    Science proves that you post ignorant nonsense. Robots are part of the survival instinct in nature. Humans are not an exception.

    You are the epitome of what is wrong with the internet, and in extension, American society. Even when you are presented with undeniable proof, you continue to insist the science is wrong and you are the only one who is not ignorant.

    You are the one who ruined what could have been a great thread.

    This ^^^^^^ is irrational blather.

    Human beings are not (can’t believe I have to say this) robots, and no “scientific evidence “ has been provided that proves such a ridiculous claim.

    I won't say that the student's aren't myopic, but sometimes one needs to get very close to a thing to notice it's differences. What seems simple from far away maybe much more complex up close. The students may seem to us to be repetitive, but we don't do what they do. To them the nuance in their actions maybe as complex as all the variety in the U.S.A.'s current office attire (There's probably a better example).

    We all have our own idiosyncrasies but there are very few of us who would remain seated when the bell rang. We are outcasts for not being robots but we make great designers because we always think out of the box. I'm not constrained by man-made borders or walls. I live by my own set of rules. A subset of the counterculture.
