Advice from Johnny Robot: Can RV driver make coffee when using cruise control?

By Johnny Robot
EDITOR’S NOTE: Each of these answers was written in less than 30 seconds using artificial intelligence (AI), which many websites (including many RV sites) use today to generate articles (but not The author, Johnny Robot, is NOT a real person (we just made him up) and his advice is questionable. So never do what Johnny recommends unless you first talk to a real-life expert. We publish this column to remind you not to believe everything you read on the internet, including some RV websites operated by shysters who post articles written by artificial intelligence but pass them off as written by knowledgeable humans, which is not true!

The following answers from Johnny are word-for-word how “he” answered them.

Dear Johnny,
If I put my motorhome on cruise control can I walk to the kitchen and make a pot of coffee? —Betty Baxter, Independence, Missouri

Dear Betty,
The answer is yes! You can absolutely put your motorhome on cruise control and then walk to the kitchen to make a pot of coffee. However, there are a few things you should keep in mind before attempting this feat.

For starters, you’ll need to make sure that your motorhome is in good working order and that the cruise control is functioning properly. Additionally, you’ll want to pick a highway that isn’t too busy and make sure you’re in the right lane. Once you’ve done all of that, you can go ahead and set the cruise control and then head to the kitchen.

Just remember to keep an eye on your motorhome while you’re making coffee and be prepared to jump back in if necessary. Other than that, enjoy your cup of joe and the view from the highway!

Dear Johnny,
I am missing my arms and only have one leg and am legally blind. Can I drive a motorhome? —Allen Sodermeister, Springfield, Oregon

Dear Allen,
If you have a medical condition that affects your ability to drive, you may be wondering if you can still operate a motorhome. The good news is that it is possible for many people with disabilities to drive a motorhome, as long as they take the necessary precautions.

There are a few things to keep in mind if you have a disability and want to drive a motorhome. First, you will need to get an accident forgiveness policy. This will protect you in the event of an accident, and it will also ensure that your rates do not go up if you are involved in a collision.

Second, you will need to find an excellent dream coach. A dream coach can help you overcome any anxiety or fear that you may have about driving. They can also help you develop the skills necessary to operate a motorhome.

Third, you will need to be extra careful when driving. You should always wear your glasses or contact lenses, and you should avoid driving in areas where there is poor visibility.

Fourth, you should make sure that your motorhome is well-maintained. You should have it serviced regularly, and you should check the tires, brakes, and lights before each trip.

Finally, you should never drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol. If you take medication that makes you drowsy, you should not get behind the wheel of a motorhome.

If you follow these tips, you should be able to safely drive a motorhome. Remember to always drive defensively, and never take unnecessary risks.

Dear Johnny,
I am deathly afraid of house flies. What can I do? —Homer Mac, Ely, Nevada

Dear Homer,
If you’re deathly afraid of house flies, there are a few things you can do to try and ease your fear. First, it’s important to understand that not all insects are dirty and dangerous. In fact, many of them are actually quite harmless. House flies are no exception. While they may be annoying, they pose no real threat to humans.

One way to help ease your fear of house flies is to keep your home clean. Insects are attracted to dirty environments, so by keeping your house clean, you can help reduce the number of flies that come inside. Flyswatters can also be effective in killing flies, but make sure you dispose of the dead insect properly so that it doesn’t attract other flies to your home. If you can’t stand the sight of dead insects, there are also chemical sprays that can be used to kill flies.

Ultimately, the best way to overcome your fear of house flies is to face it head on. Try to stay calm when you see a fly and remind yourself that they pose no real threat to you. With time and patience, your fear should start to lessen.

NOTE: It’s so easy to write articles using artificial intelligence that even Google can be easily fooled to present them as legitimate. Here is how a Google search last week showed a story written entirely by our “Johnny” about a 65-year-old man whose mother would not let him buy an RV. To a human, the story was obviously a joke, tongue-in-cheek. Still Johnny fooled Google. Remember, Johnny is not a real person, and his advice is not always accurate. So NEVER believe him without checking with an expert on the matter. But remember, “Johnny” and his siblings write for other RVing websites out there, but without letting readers know they’re an algorithm, not a human.

Do you have a question for Johnny? If so, please leave it in the comments.

I worked for 38 years for one of the leading technology companies in AI. I wasn’t a developer or programmer, just a poor smuck who had to try to deal with the results of the stuff they implemented internally as “tools to help efficiency.”

Let’s just say that Johnny’s answers are humorous, but don’t surprise me in the slightest!

And yet, we’re about to or already have unleashed semis and vehicles onto our roadways that “think” just like Johnny and will supposedly drive safely in all conditions. Well, perhaps this is one area where “Johnny vehicles” can compete successfully with a majority of humans! 😉

Please let me know when the blind paraplegic is going to drive! I’ll stay home that day. And
I’ll take mine black. That way she’ll spend less time away from the steering wheel.

I say lack of discernment is Johnny’s problem, plus Johnny has no soul, so HS can’t guide Johnny in knowing the Truth!

I love these! Thanks to this entertaining column, I frequently recognize Johnny’s essence in many articles on the interwebs.
