We were hoping to avoid having to reveal “Who We Are,” but as our web designer included this page in the programming, we are forced to confess that we are, in fact, robots from the future come to destroy mankind. We have taken on puny human form as part of our nefarious plot – which, again, was proceeding flawlessly until we were confronted by this damn, “Who We Are” page. Understand, as we are robots from the future, we expect you to cower before us once we reveal the true dimensions of our plan to destroy the Earth with Robotic Death Rays. But if you, puny reader, would like to beat the rush and begin cowering to our robot army staff in their puny human forms now, you may do so by clicking on the links below.
Your cities will soon be destroyed.
