I like Pepsi, for this reason:

Coca Cola makes my teeth feel odd. As if they were 1mm bigger that normal. Pepsi doesn't.

In fact I prefer Virgin Cola to either of those, I like the rather unique taste.

I think autonomous bots are pretty much what I'd call 'genuine' robots because they work on their own programming. Even if they aren't so advanced, it can be fun to watch more cleverly programmed bots try to attack each other.

My friend and co-creator Chris showed me a couple of Real Robots magazines where Chaos 2 member Ian Swann demonstrates how to build a working, yet mind-numbingly pathetic antweight robot. Since then I've been hooked and we're building Nemesis.

Thanks. Mum said I could go with Dad if Chris and one of his parents could take us, in the summer holidays.

Thanks everyone, cool. We'll probably ask in the summer holidays (only three weeks!) and a toothless disc works on the principle that it has a sharpened edge.

If one sub-cluster bot fell off the edge, would the other fail as well or do both have to be destroyed?
