  1. Why is it that you can press the button twice? What’s up with that secret message about “not pressing the button”? And what is 204?

  2. @Matt
    The admonishment not to press the button is a “Hitchhikers Guide” reference. As is the “Your plastic pal who’s fun to be with”.

  3. The spanish version says something like “The robots have shiny metal posteriors that should not be SUCKED” (in spanish).
