Viva Boilerplate. Pancho Villa poses with Boilerplate in this photo taken near Guerrero, March 27, 1916. Boilerplate was a U.S. Military prototype autonomous fighting robot on loan to Villa as part of a CIA black-op in Mexico. This was in direct contradiction to then U.S. policy and provoked a secret firestorm in President Woodrow Wilson's cabinet.

The little tin robot (in Czech colours no less) on Čapek's grave absolutely made my day. Čapek was the man who brought the word "robot" to the English language with his play Rossum's Universal Robots or R.U.R. Olga Scheinpflugová was his wife. Cemetery behind the Peter and Paul Church in Vyšehrad, Prague.
