    Re: traininator

    Probably a play on the word "terminator"?

    The Terminator (1984)

    Re: traininator

    Have you ever seen the movie?
    The terminator terminates (kills) people.

    The traininator trains people.

    Re: traininator

    I like that: a machine that trains terminators to be nice! How may I help you Ms. Conner? Ermm, shoot yourself? Ok! Bang

    But should it not be: training-ator, you will be trained?
