The unique character of Boilerplate made its first appearance on a website created by Paul Guinan in 2000. The site details the history of a remarkable fictional robot built in the late 19th century by a Professor Archibald Campion. For pseudo-realism it also features photo-shopped images in which Boilerplate is seen interacting with various historical figures of the time. When Guinan realized that some visitors to the site were taken in by its narrative, he decided to see how authentic he could make Boilerplate by writing a book about his life, and ensuring that the descriptions of the non-fictional events he participates in are accurate.
I remember back in my early teens I would get nervous going to the clothing stores with my friends. I think I was just afraid of the sales people and scared that they would force me to buy something. My back would sweat too - or it could be from the walking, I can't recall for sure. Looking back now, it was such an irrational fear, and this fear I believe was based on shyness and my avoidance of conflict. I took a class early this year on negotiations and I remember the instructor had told us that 10% of the population hates conflict. People who hate conflict would do anything to avoid conflict and negotiations. That is why sales people love these individuals who avoids conflict; they will accept any terms the sales people have to offer.
