Machines steal jobs from humans


I went to the grocery store yesterday and saw something slightly horrible. I saw the future of this technology-reliant society. What started me thinking

live people working the other lanes. On that particular evening, Kroger was employing more machines than people. Maybe The Matrix isn't as farfetched
as we think.
