Which White Sox Player is a Robot?

Occasionally I get a case of crippling insomnia that keeps me up for basically the entire night. During those hours of restlessness, I think about a plethora of very weird things. One of those recent weird things was about the possibility of some sort of robot humans already existing in our midst. I know this […]
