    haha. I see 77 people have seen this thread, and I suppose I agree. pretty boring event. But I thought I'd post just for fun. It's incredible to see a movie director and a toy company banking on the premise of giant robots...and litterally starting the NYSE which is the cornerstone of world finance.
