Only 48%? Hmmmmm...that can't be right. I mean, I've watched Alive, like, 10 times! I would never kill my friends for food in order to survive. However, if they had already died, then it's chow time. What would you do?
By the 50th generation, the robots had learned to communicate—lighting up, in three out of four colonies, to alert the others when they’d found food or poison. The fourth colony sometimes evolved “cheater” robots instead, which would light up to tell the others that the poison was food, while they themselves rolled over to the food source and chowed down without emitting so much as a blink.
However, there were some hero robots who "died" to save other robots from harm.
Tough times in the commodity beef market in 1975 forced Prather Ranch to scale back its herd. No new animals have been introduced since. In a lucky coincidence, closing the herd turned out to be great for business. Combined with the cattle's long-time strict vegetarian diet, the closure ensures that cattle have never been exposed to bovine spongiform encephalopathy, or mad-cow disease, which first emerged in the 1980s.
The Rickerts' unique situation brought them to the attention of a company looking for a safe supply of cowhides to turn into collagen, often used for lip injections. After constructing a custom abattoir, or slaughterhouse, in 1995, they began to attract attention from other medical and pharmaceutical companies.

"I love elaborate clocks - particularly the large, public clocks of the late Middle Ages, and others inspired by them. The best tell not only the time, but considerable astronomical information with various hand and dials - more elaborate models including the month and date; the position of the sun, moon, and zodiac on the ecliptic; the nodes and phases of the moon; and even eclipses and the computus for Easter. The most beautiful have geocentric models of the universe; medieval symbols of the zodiac and seasons; humorous allegorical statues and automata, clock-jacks ringing bells on the hour, crowing roosters or singing cuckoos, mechanical organs, and processions of tiny statues. They are among the most engaging works of art or mechanics ever created."
