    Robots picking apples in WA State

    "Wherever automation appears, so does the question of whose jobs might be displaced. But American farmers have for years complained of a labor shortage and are increasingly dependent on foreign seasonal labor."

    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    I picked apples in eighth grade and lasted one day. Unlike the robots I was supposed to get half rotten apples off the ground for cider, juice, and applesauce. Maybe if I'd been able to take apples off the trees I would have stuck with it longer. The robots have it easy.
