Athletes seem to be taking up some odd stances lately.
Canseco, a 52-year-old former Major League Baseball player who has admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs while hitting 462 big-league home runs, apparently is a believer in the idea robots are going to take over the world.
He began sharing this belief around midday with the statement, "The robot threat is being taken to (sic) lightly."
He continued with a warning that our machines will not conduct a violent overthrow but come to dominate us by taking over all aspects of our lives – something he points out has already begun happening.
This all seems a bit far-fetched but, hey, he was right about that whole steroids in MLB thing, so you never know.
