today i am learning about how a bunch of show robots got built in the 30s and apparently nearly all of them could either smoke cigarettes or shoot guns

imagine a 1930s guy watching a robot smoke lucky strikes while firing a gun into into the crowd and being like "my god, he's just like us!"

@robotcarsley they made sure everyone wore a hat by having the old timey police go around truncheoning random skulls under the assumption that if you were wearing a hat it would cushion the blow enough for you to survive

@Dayglochainsaw @robotcarsley
It might amuse you to know the hatmakers association in New York literally used to pay people to go around beating up men who weren't wearing hats or were wearing out of fashion hats.

@robotcarsley @Dayglochainsaw
Makes gun toting robots carrying out an armed rampage seem tame by comparison.

@Dayglochainsaw Jesusthey look terrifying in the way a 30s thing can.

@Dayglochainsaw Wanted to demonstrate how human (American white male) they were.
