Having a mega-penguin friend would be better than having a robot butler.
Didn't know what category to put, so I put funny. My sense of humour isn't that great anyway.
So, my argument is that having a mega-penguin friend would be more awesome than having a robot butler.
Both of them are passive-aggressive, protective over you and speak the same language as you.
First round is acceptance.
Then, we proceed to our argument, we will have one argument only, so it will have to be a good one.
Note: I didn't realise that there were 4 rounds (Sorry, still getting used to this site!), so new rule- we just debate as we normally would.
There are a lot of reasons that robot butlers are better. I'll name some.
Versatility and helpfulness
Alright, so the thing you're forgetting about a robot butler is how versatile it is. If you do not know, versatile means (1) " artificial intelligence system kind of like Siri but better. If you say "Siri is nothing like a butler", then you are wrong because here is Apple's motto for Siri straight from their website (4):
If that doesn't sound bulter-ish and awesome, then I don't know what is. Siri can do things like send emails, look up directions, send phone messages, set reminders, and send text messages. It's amazing. Also, Android and other phone companies are developing even better A.I.'s for phones and tablets. These are essentionally robot butlers, and they can do so much. Robot butlers can also serve the purpose of a normal butler with physical stuff. These are already developed (3):
These are smart, humanoid, and just plain awesome. They could be designed to do anything a mega penguin could do. If making it a penguin is a deal breaker, you could even get a penguin shaped one (5):
Therefore the versatility of robot butlers are the deal breaker, and you can basically get it to look or do whatever you want. You can get it as big as you want. You can get it as an almost microscopic aritificial intelligence. You can get it as a humanoid android. They can do basically anything based on how you make them, and if money is not an issue, you are gonna have a great life for sure if you have a robot butler.
Very cool and awesome
I don't want to offend any of you penguin fan-boys, but what's cooler this (6):
or this (7):
The bottom one by far is more complex, more awesome, and would help my self esteem the most. I would feel like a boss if I had J.A.R.V.I.S. and don't lie; you would too. Robots are just really appealing to today's modern society, and they blow penguins out of the water (no pun intended) in that way. If you say penguins are from Antartica, robots are from Pluto on a coolness scale (pun intended there). This is not just opinion, as there are polls to back this up. A poll in the United Kingdom was taken, and it was discovered that one in five people there would be willing to have sex with a robot (8). If robots weren't so awesome, that wouldn't be the case. It's not just my opinion that robots are cooler.
Penguin population is decreasing
It's a known fact that penguin population is decreasing rapidly these days. The reason is not to be debated right now, as it could have something to do with climate change, polution, random chance, or just the end of a species. Whatever the reason is, the facts are that penguins are not thriving as of late. Look at this graph of Empire Penguin breeding pairs since 1956 (9):
Taking penguins and forcing them to be slaves to humans as a butler or friend would hurt the natural penguin population and lifestyle. That could give a reputation of being unfriendly to animals, and that could cost you relationships, friendships, and your happiness. A robot is a hunk of metal that can do everything a penguin can, but it isn't something that is on the down trend in population. It is safe to assume that there are more robots on earth than penguins. Look at this chart (10):
Robots are getting more and more popular, they are so much cooler than penguins, and they can do so much more. What other evidence do you need? Robot butlers win.
