The guys at Special Ops have been working on an improved android detection test to help ferret out Maskatron. What they suggest is to carry a powerful magnet in your pocket. If you see someone you suspect of being an android, hold the magnet next to their head. If the person is a human, he or she will possibly berate you and call you crazy, but if it's an android, it will start to look confused and then sing the lyrics to several Cindy Lauper songs backwards. At this point you should call in the professionals and let trained robot disposal crews take care of things.
However, if you either can't get a hold of a magnet, or need a more subtle approach, try slipping the following multiple-choice questions into casual conversation.
Your favourite music is:
a. 70's Rock
b. New Country
As a child, the profession you most wanted to be when you "grew up" was:
b. Food Service Industry Worker
c. Robot Assassin
Most of your friends are:
a. Highly paid professionals
b. Slacker lay-abouts
c. Household appliances
You feel happiest when:
b. Driving really fast
c. Computing large numbers in your head
When changing channels on your TV, you are most likely to use:
a. The remote
b. The manual controls
c. Your universal "ear antenna"
If the subject answers "a" to three or more of these questions, chances are they are normal, productive members of society; if their answers tend towards "c" you are likely talking to a Fakie Agent; but if the subject's answers tend towards "b" you should certainly be calling Robot Control and ducking for cover!
