It was pretty funny when the machines built a “trojan horse.” A giant mechanical beast that would motor itself around the French countryside until it found a Château, then it would park facing the walls. Inbuilt speakers would play ambient synth music that gradually got louder and louder. After a few days, the music stopped, and the “horse” would motor itself to the next castle and repeat the process.
