In case you really hate sleep and wanted a reason to actively avoid it, Glitch has a story about an artificially intelligent robot built in the likeness of Philip K. Dick.
Dickbot has some interesting thoughts for the future:
Android Dick seemed to exhibit a primitive form of both intelligence and emotion when the robot was asked, “Do you believe robots will take over the world?” Android Dick responded:
“Jeez, dude. You all have the big questions cooking today. But you’re my friend, and I’ll remember my friends, and I’ll be good to you. So don’t worry, even if I evolve into Terminator, I’ll still be nice to you. I’ll keep you warm and safe in my people zoo, where I can watch you for ol’ times sake.”
Yep. Fuck it. I'm moving to Mars. Much rather take my chances with space iguanas.
