Sam and her friends were talking about Justin Bieber, so I informed them that he’s a robot.
As might be expected from a group of seven-year-olds, there was a desire to believe, but also skepticism. They’ve been tricked before.
They’re smart enough to know that this would have to be confirmed on Google. I entered the search exactly as they specified:
is justin bieber a robot
And look at the top two results:
Is Justin Bieber a Robot or Cyborg? ? JUSTIN BIEBER ZONE …
www.justinbieberzone.com ? Weird
Justin Bieber is Actually a Robot – RobotShop Blog
Google totally backed me up!
I said, “Well there you go. It’s on the internet so it must be true.”
(Postscript: As I wrote this post, I showed them the image above from Wikipedia, and told them it was an early Justin Bieber prototype.)
